I was ready to defend him because I thought this would be about that podcast stuff. But no.....the underage sexting thing.....dear goodness.

I dont have any words..... the stuff in the podcast basically goes right in line with what is said in this article.

Its funny (not ha ha funny), but he's been exhibiting the same behavior towards fans the past few days saying Sell this tour out, or no US tour.

Its sick.


We knew he dated all these women and shit didn't work out and it ended messy. No way of knowing he did this shit though. And thats not even the worst thing in this story.


I'm glad they were brave enough to come forward and tell their story.

As I said in the other thread, I'm totally sick. Terrible stuff.

First thing that pops in my head is Doylestown Girl. No matter when this song was written I immediately thought it was weird to put it on an album when it was so clearly about Megan. A lot of us saw the Instagram posts when they broke up.

It reminds me so much of how Louis CK did things. The way he towed the line in his comedy basically confirming the rumors about him. I know it's not the same thing exactly but DG just seems like Ryan putting something out there to apologize in a way he can't or even worse justify his behavior. Like "hey here's a song about how awesome you are so I can't be a total dick the right?" or Phoebe is "Bob Dylan" etc etc.

These women are brave and should be shown respect but I'm sure they will get attacked by assholes.

It just sucks, Ryan has been a huge part of my music listening life and now what?

People are going to demand refunds for their tickets, probably why he wanted them to sell out

Its a fair reaction/emotion to have. Lots of great music out there though.

Ryan. Is. Fucked.

On the plus side, if you missed out on a splatter vinyl, I wouldn't be surprised if some pop back up in the shop.

What do you think this means for the 3 albums?

Re: Your favorite singer/songwriter is a Perv:The Thread
 
Won't be happening. Big Colors probably will still happen.

I am not a perfect man and I have made many mistakes. To anyone I have ever hurt, however unintentionally, I apologize deeply and unreservedly.

But the picture that this article paints is upsettingly inaccurate. Some of its details are misrepresented; some are exaggerated; some are outright false. I
would never have inappropriate interactions with someone I though was underage. Period.

As someone who has always tried to spread joy through my music and my life, hearing that some people believe I caused them pain saddens me greatly. I am resolved to work to be the best man I can be. And I wish everyone compassion, understanding and healing.

I thought this was mostly going to be stuff about him being an asshole, and a lot of it was, but the whole underage texting thing is pretty fucked up if it's true.

Yes. The next few weeks are looking to be prime time to pick up for cheap all the rare vinyl people unload in disgust.

But in all seriousness.. Ryanís still my dude.. Seems to be an even more flawed person than Iíd thought. Just sucks all around. I hate these sorts of articles. Am I wrong?
