From suggestively serenading Disney teen sensation Selena Gomez to flagrantly flirting with Fox & Friends’ own co-host Gretchen Carlson, Hank Williams, Jr., got bawdy today. Promoting his album 127 Rose Avenue by performing all morning live outside on the “veranda” for F&F’s summer concert series, “All American Summer,” Bocephus was in rare form. In the middle of the hour when co-anchor Steve Doocy indicated that Hank and his band coffee needed a pot of coffee, Hank proffered a presentiment of things to come: he laughingly replied, “And a few Bloody Mary[s].”
Perhaps, F&F did serve up a few to him. Mid-show, Hank serenaded the star of Wizards of Waverly Place as she stood silently next to him.* Gazing at her from behind his sunglasses, he sang, “Watermelon lip gloss, kiss beneath the swamp moss on a moonlit night”: perhaps, playing along, Selena put her palm to her chest and then to her forehead as if in disbelief. Continuing Hank crooned, “Bubble gum perfume” and then pointed to her as he sang,” Well-placed tattoo above her hiney, high, oh my!” Selena smiled, her jaw dropped, and she coyly put both her hands to her face. Possibly, she needed to be in the “Princess Protection Program” figuratively, too.
During Hank’s interview by the F&F co-hosts, Brian reminded him of his promise to take him fishing. Gretch interjected, “Wait a minute! I’ll go to Monday Night Football with you.” Taking her hand eagerly and cradling it in both of his, Hank readily responded, “Honey, I will take you anywhere: I’d even go to a tennis match with you.” As an aside to the audience, Gretch exclaimed, “I hope that my husband’s not watching.”
