Clarkson, Ke$ha, Gaga, JT Music Stolen

You gotta love the young ones for creativity. An 18 year old has been BUSTED for hacking and stealing songs from Kelly Clarkson, Ke$ha, Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga then selling them online to make some dough. How about $13,000 worth? The 18 year old is from Duisburg, German and STILL lives with his parents. He goes by the name of ‘DJ Stolen’ ( real name Deniz A.) and had a 23 year old accomplice (Christian M.) that he says “I haven’t heard from him for a while.”

Apparently he had attached a Trojan (no not the condom) to an MP3 file that was sent to the official addresses of the music stars, their managers and their record companies.

He says “I’m a fan and I just wanted to have cool music. I’m no blackmailer.”

If convicted he could be sentenced up to five years in prison.
