Prompted by a playful arm squeeze from Regis Philbin, David Letterman addressed his sex scandal of fall 2009 for the first time outside of his Late Show studio on this morning’s Live! “It was not a tragedy; it was just stupidity,” he said.” Letterman proceeded to channel Annie Lennox with a broken glass metaphor that blew Reege’s mind. Video after the jump.

“You’re able to take a look at the pieces left of your life, because you think an explosion has taken place, and you’re looking at the shards and you see, well, can we put this back together? And by god, maybe you can put it back together, and maybe it won’t be the same, but maybe it’ll be different — maybe it can even be better in a different way.” [E!]

Will it float, PopWatchers?
