I wonder if Metallica really had an issue with how their music was used, or rather that their music was used. I definitely put them in that category of musicians (Prince, the Beatles, the Smashing Pumpkins)who are overly protective of their music.
On Tuesday, famous singer Chris Brown sent the tweets above. Coming the day after he spent about an hour in jail for charges stemming from a hit and run, the tweets make it apparent that even with his continued success following Rihanna's beating, he's not feeling the love. It's a "mistake I made when I was 18" he laments, even though he was 19 and it only happened four years ago.
To put that in perspective, it took Chris Brown less time to atone for domestic violence than it took most of us to complete High School.
The trolls behind #BaldForBieber have launched a campaign to get Bieber fans to cut themselves over his alleged marijuana use (you know, because if there's one thing we know it's that drug use turns artists into complete crap). It's insensitive, to say the least, but there's been some high quality smartass-ery as a result.
