Kurt Loder apologizes to Jewel over his condescending 1998 MTV interview

In a recent interview with Stereogum, Jewel called Loder a "d*ck" for the 1998 interview discussing her new book of poetry, saying: "What an a** to show himself like that. It was almost that thing where you’d feel sorry for somebody, it’s like, 'Wow, here’s a full grown man who does news for children, on a children’s network, for teenagers.' Yeah. You’re bitter." In a statement to Yahoo Entertainment, Loder responded: "That MTV interview I did with Jewel was a sh*tty thing to do to anyone, and I've been ashamed of having done it ever since. If I could go back in time I'd smack me in the head. However, I'm not a college graduate...."

‘A S****y Thing to Do:’ MTV’s Kurt Loder Apologizes for Embarrassing Jewel During 1998 Interview

Nearly 25 years later, former MTV host Kurt Loder is apologizing for patronizing country star Jewel during an interview about her book of poetry, A Night Without Armor. During the 1998 interview, Loder indicated the young artist used the word “casualty” incorrectly; Jewel quickly responded that Loder, who was older and allegedly more educated, was a “smart-ass for pointing that out.” When Jewel mentioned the past conflict during an interview with Stereogum Friday, she said that at the time, she was “so pissed” and that Loder “was just a d***.” Loder, however, now seems to agree. In a statement to Yahoo Entertainment, the host conceded, “That MTV interview I did with Jewel was a s****y thing to do to anyone, and I’ve been ashamed of having done it ever since. If I could go back in time I’d smack me in the head.”
