Oh man, this cracks me up. It wasn’t extortion—-Halderman was just giving Letterman first dibs on his “highly marketable” story! Celebrities buy stories all the time. All the gossip rags say so, even if the celebs don’t. It’s not the defendant’s fault if Letterman didn’t want to play along. Charging this good Samaritan and not Rachel Uchitel would be a miscarriage of justice, even if Tiger Woods hasn’t complained or even admitted paying her.
Is Homer Simpson representing this guy? “In closing, you people must realize that the public owns you for life! And when you’re dead, you’ll all be in commercials, dancing with vacuum cleaners.” The court filings must have been dripping with flop sweat.
The album I Don’t Want You Back isn’t a classic, but there are a few worthwhile follow-ups to the title track.
“I Want You So Bad" is Frankie Lymon unbound ("I just want you close to meee! I’ll get you wet! Just wait and see!!!").
“I Love Them Hos" pays tribute to the ladies he meets on the road over a Flamingos sample ("If you still want to fool around, you can catch the next greyhound…").
“On and On" is his tenderest announcement of sexual prowess, recently chipmunked by Flo Rida (“Every time I finish, I could see it in your eyes…I freak it like you like it then you want some more, let’s explore the bedroom floor…over and over and over…”).
