Re: NIN *not* playing MTV awards
You all just proved their point. They weren't using the image in a negative way, they were just putting up a simple, plain image of Bush behind them as they played, everyone took it as negative and has a strong opinion of it.
And jem7vwh, get a life. You're attempts to force your personal opinions on the world around you are just getting irritating. You insult everything that you don't personally like, and never have the facts to back it up.
NIN's new album is selling well, even The Fragile, their least commercial album, sold well. The reason their was such a long break between albums is that Trent had alcoholism and other addictions he wanted to clean up before getting back to work.
And he doesn't care about MTV, he's not putting up a fight about this. The only reason he made that post was because he knew MTV would release a statement that didn't explain why NIN pulled out of the awards show, and he wanted the record set straight.
If you knew anything, you'd know Trent's got an awesome sense of humour, and this is part of it. It's not a "statement", it's a joke. The fact that people get so upset about it is the funniest part.
