It appears that the secret to dethroning the current king and queen of pop is a simple copyright claim.
The Internet is buzzing as someone named “iLCreation” has placed a copyright claim on such popular Vevo videos as Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” and Justin Bieber’s “Never Let You Go,” forcing YouTube to (at least temporarily) remove the uber popular videos.
The Twitterverse has “identified” the perp as a 13-year-old Pakistani hacker (sounds fishy to us). Details are scarce and uncorroborated as we are currently in the eye of this pop disaster; we will update you when hear more. But in the meantime, you’re sort of jealous somebody else figured this out first, aren’t you?
