It's too easy to critisize, especially from an adult perpective.
But this is a kid.
Not exactly a "mental giant" to begin with and now he finds himself "the next big thing".
Surrounded by a hoard of leeches, including his own family, that see nothing but a payday.
Yea - he should have listened to good advice.
Butt stupid move? No doubt about it.
Should have known better? Yep.
But what kid can hold up forever under that kind of pressure?
The HumV with 3 flat-screen TVs was just asking for it.
Every journalist, after that, was looking for the "big" story.
A couple-a shirts? Shirts?
It coulda been a lot worse.
From what I've heard - one hell of a nice kid.
My 2 cents, anyway.
