Craig Ferguson Speaks From The Heart


Recommended Posts

Per a 2019 interview with Craig:

"But really, I thought at the time that I was giving my resignation monologue. I thought, “They’re going to fire me for this.” And actually the opposite happened, and everyone seemed to be very happy about it. I never heard anything negative from anybody at the network or [production company] Worldwide Pants. But I was convinced at the time that I was getting into trouble."

After he did this he said that him and his team wanted to use Oops I did it again in one of his standup specials, but he didn’t think they would be able to due to the cost. He got in contact with her team and she let him use it for free.

"While Ferguson “never heard directly from Miss Spears” after his speech, he stressed, “That was not necessary. I wasn't looking for that.” However, he does have a feeling that she heard what he said, and that she may have thanked him in her own subtle way. “I did want to use one of her songs [“Oops!...I Did It Again”] in a standup special, and when I requested it, everyone was saying there's no way that song was going to clear,” he said with a chuckle in 2019. “I asked if I could use it in a standup special, and I got it for nothing. That's a very expensive song to use. So, I'm extremely grateful that she let me do that.”
