Give me a fucking break. I honestly don't care what he does, but the reasoning he gives is retarded. At least the other similar recent examples of fighting piracy with free music used a distribution method people want to use, and a "pay what you want" idea that allowed fans to support. Not to mention limited edition packages and instant downloads for pre-orders.
The pop star has banned internet sites including iTunes and YouTube from using his music and he hopes distributing more than 2.5 million copies for free will help fight online piracy.
He says, "It's the best way to go. No charts, no internet piracy and no stress. Period. It seems like a lot ofther artists agree with us as they are using the same approach now."
