How sad....

Seriously, I'm gonna go rape, kill, or molest someone so I can finally be marketable in the music industry.
Pathetic!!!

God...he probably didn't do anything. If he is convicted, that's a different story...

But he still has good music.

And he didn't kill anybody.

Do you honestly think it's his talent (or lackthereof) that sold all those records. If'n you do....I have some land to sell you...

He uhm...uh...well...uh....DID do something. Thems the facts Jack.
'Twas said controversy that garnered the media attention that caused for his record label to push the record.

Wow, I'd have figured pissing on your fans would hurt your record sales.

At my store (FYE) I have yet to sell a single copy. Granted out prices are a little higher $13.99 but I should have sold at least one. Good sales on the new Cash record though, a worthy album to purchase!

Believe it or not, his "talent" is a pretty big reason for him selling a lot of records. It's not like he's coming out of nowhere to sell a ton of records. He's been successful for about a decade now selling multi-platinum albums regularly.
