I want everyone to buy my album cause they like the music I recorded. Being on the cover of the magazine for hitting the game winning shot is nice, but that's about ego. I'm gonna hit that game winning shot whether I make sport center or not. And that game winning shot happened at an event you paid money to come see. Me beating my wife is not going on at the arena. No one sold tickets to that. That's between me and my wife. And teh cops and the judge and the kids. But its really none of YOUR business. You pay for your ticket to come tothe game and watch me play. You buy the album cause it gets you pumped while you are on the stair master.If you want everyone to buy your new album and you want to be on the front page when you hit the game-winning shot, then you cannot object to a like amount of attention when you beat your wife or don't pay child support or slander people and ruin their livelihood.
I understand I'm probably in the minority on this, but I don't care if Mel Gibson is an anti-semite. I'm not his friend or associating with him. I only care if he makes good movies. When I watch Braveheart, I see William Wallace, not some drunk dude calling a cop sugartits.
