X Factor Dramz! We Can't Believe Nicole Scherzinger Did This!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooNicole ScherzingerX Factor

Wow… just wow…

We can't believe it went down like this!!!

Let's set it up for ya real quick. On the last X Factor, the bottom two were Marcus Canty and Rachel Crow. Marcus had two votes against him and Rachel only had one. Marcus has been in the bottom two for the last three weeks! Clearly, it was his time to go. He's good but Rachel is WAY better!!

With two votes against him, they only needed one more vote to send Marcus on his way, but when it was time for Nicole Scherzinger to be a judge, she couldn't be. In the deciding position, she decided to vote against Rachel just so it could be forced into a deadlock.

In a deadlock, the voters' choice decides. And unfortunately, Rachel was eliminated.

What happens next was just unbearable! It was so hard to watch! So hard!!

But we believe in Rachel! We know she's going to be a Disney star, and maybe this will give her even more attention. We love you, Rachel Crow!!!

Ugh, U have to watch this atrocity for URself. Play it!!

  1. 1

    anyone else thinks Racheals crow might have been..a little over the top? Or was she so self confident that it really did stun Do we really need 13-14 years old in this situation? just a question..oh and one last thing DAVID STERN YOU SUCK



  2. 2

    This show is awful… i just cannot wait for American Idol to start!



  3. 3

    While Nicole once again showed she's a coward as a judge and Marcus really deserved to go home after being in the top three you have to keep in mind that if this was American Idol Rachel would 've gone home because she did have the lowest number of votes.
    Part of what makes X Factor fun is this ability for the judges to choose who goes home, I think this is put in place to PREVENT premature exits like Rachel. Booo on Nicole



  4. 4

    This is so disturbing, obviously these children aren't ready for hollywood and fame if when they get a voted off they start whining and crying and acting rude. Examples: Rachel AND Astro. Ridiculous.



  5. 5

    This was an extremely cowardly thing Nicole did! But Simon Cowell as usual is the only smart, articulate, and brave person on these shows. When he says that we will be seeing more of her, he will make it happen.



  6. 6

    Re: jedimaster12 – I agree. While it was heartbreaking and Rachel should have not been sent home. Marcus is no way better than Rachel. She acted way over the top and made a spectacle of herself. I know she's only thirteen however the parents and producers should have sat them all down and made sure they understood that if they lost, it wasn't the end of the world. oh and yeah, Nicole's an idiot. She was hired to judge, not sit back and let this crap happen. That was so lame on her part. LAME.



  7. 7

    I've never watched this show but dang, what a sore loser. Sure, being a child and on a tv show is too much, what did her mom promise her? That she would win? She should have been prepared for failure. I was never on a tv show as a child, but I know what it's like to lose and how you handle yourself shows your true colors. Not feeling sorry for her, sorry.



  8. 8

    Woooow… my eyes welled up with tears, was really hard not to feel bad for this little Rachel and Nicole.



  9. 9

    @Suggitya'll Agree w/ everything you said. One thing. Nicole's fake cry made me ill and then when she fake broke down I got dramatic and threw up.



  10. 10

    Well, I guess my prediction is right. Perez is getting paid by the Kartrashians which is why he always defends them and posts crap about them. Did you see the commercial about the Kartrashians before the Xfactor video.

    You sold out Perez!



  11. 11

    Dont blame Nicole. If Rachel's fans wanted her to be in the competition so bad they would have VOTED! It was fair. Yeah, feel bad for her but its not the end of the world. She overreacted WAY too much. And this isn't gonna be the last time you'll see her. Marcus' fans actually voted and want him in the competition obviously more than her fans. So relax yourself. Don't send Nicole hate mail for something so dumb.



  12. 12

    she's unstable and FAKE. get lost, midget!!



  13. 13

    How pathetic. Yeah, she's 13, but to react like that. God seriously, you shouldn't let your child be on the show if she is that pathetic. Fucking retard.



  14. 14

    She is fourteen years old !!! she was the best but the night before she wasn"t and the people voted Marcus ..fourteen is not a little five year old and thats how she acted in two weeks she will be signing with Disney …Ithink that was a little over the top ..great actress ..Marcus won by the people so get over it …This show is fixed!!!!!!! Simone Cowell is an asshole he will probably fire Nicole…



  15. 15

    I was really stunned by this and it got a lil dusty in the living room if you know what I mean. Nicole shouldn't be a judge if she cant make those tough decisions. Seriously.



  16. 16

    Cowardly move by Nicole. I'm not blaming her for anything but being paid tons of money to be a cop out and not an objective judge. Of course Rachel's going to be upset, she's a child and she had a dream that was shattered; Nicole on the other hand is an adult who was paid to do a job and sh'e bawling her butt off? Whaaaaa?!!!??! Not sure why people feel Rachel was over board but Nicole was totally deserving of her pity party. Weird!! PS-I'm going to jump off a bridge if I see any more of this Kardashian crap!!!!



  17. 17

    That little girl WAS SO ANNOYING!



  18. 18

    I'm sorry but she is not ready for all the pressure of this race, is talented but you have to work it, or maybe he had been told was gonna win while he was very confident, is not healthy for a girl of that age are so collapse , I have a son 12 and not in my dreams would expose him to that, then grow badly.

  19. jham says – reply to this


    19

    That is just rediculous. it is her job to make those decisions and she knew it when she signed up.



  20. 20

    This is why children should not be on these kinds of show. For once the most talented not the cutest one got trough.



  21. 21

    nicole is so notttttt a judge wtf..the whole point for u to be a judge is to JUDGE! and now ur crying like a little bitch…the death threats are going to pile up more for nicole now



  22. 22

    Nicole should of sucked it up and been a judge. She had to of known that it is going to be a tough job. She should of even signed up. Still cannot believe Rachael is gone. SUCH A MISTAKE !



  23. 23

    I'm not a fan of Nicole either but Jesus lay off the woman! She obviously felt conflicted about the decision. If America REALLY wanted Rachel to win, they would've voted in the first place and not put her in the bottom two. Nicole obviously thought Rachel would be safe when Obviously, Rachel doesn't have the maturity to handle rejection yet. Give her time to grow up and handle rejection in an appropriate manner.



  24. 24

    I actually find that girl annoying! She acted like a spoiled brat! Maybe she's so used to being put in the pedestal because of her talent that she can't accept defeat. Anyway, this show should just raise the age limit to 16 yrs old and up. Can you imagine another 12 and 13 year old contestant freaking out again when eliminated next season? UGH!



  25. 25

    I'm sorry but this is the funniest sh*t I've ever seen. Both nicole and rachael crying like a frikkin 13 year old, at least rachael is 13 it was kinda shameful seeing a grown woman need to be comforted over something so trivial..it's just the fact of life, the fact of business. And even though rach is only 13, that was just shameful. To fall to the floor omg. I rofled. And when her named was called her eyes nearly popped out of her head..she must have thought she was not going lol.



  26. 26

    Re: jedimaster12 – umm she just lost 5million..i think thats how a normal person acts when they loose 5 million..right?



  27. 27

    This girl will be TRAUMATIZED FOR LIFE just for being in the presence of Paula Abdul….



  28. 28

    i feel sorry for her but the reaction was so over the top



  29. 29

    Mommy you promised! dumb, ugly, spoiled little bitch. I hope you enjoy your 15 before you disappear forever. I hope you get to deal with something real in life like cancer to help you put this disgusting trivial crap into persepctive.



  30. 30

    Please, they need to change the minimum age! Clearly these children are too young to handle rejection. Example would be Rachel Crow last night screaming and crying hysterically. Another example was the reaction of Drew. Its totally awkward and ridiculous. Stop putting babies on these shows they are clearly are too immature.



  31. 31

    I really didn't like how she accepted her defeat! You would have thought someone died. I think all these personal tiumph, over the odds, stories are coming back to bite the contestants in the butt. They get overexposed so early. Also, she was starting to fizzle out. She started out with a bang but the last few weeks haven't been that great. No more kids on this show!
    I think the former druggie is going to win the whole thing.



  32. 32

    I think it is funny that someone with no singing talent thinks she can judge. Paula and Nicole's so-called talents are laughable.

  33. Roe says – reply to this


    33

    Nicole is on the show to be a judge and that's what she gets paid to do and to take the easy way out and have to wait and see how the audience voted, she should not be allowed to be a judge on this show and hopefully, Simon will get rid of her after this season. Rachel might have been better than Marcus but she still didn't have the votes from the people to stay on. I am sure this will not be the last of Rachel, she will get a deal with some company somewhere.



  34. 34

    Re: Perez_is_a_bully – How do you lose something you never had? This girl was annoying since the start and proved last night that she's not ready, her reaction was ridiculous



  35. 35

    i hate Nicole, hate her, ever since she took Dexter Haygood instead of one of the rest contestants.
    this is going to backlash on her and the sad thing is, i think Josh is amazing and it's going to suck if he leaves because of what Nicole did.



  36. 36

    rachel is boring IMHO. her last performances were lackluster.



  37. 37

    Re: JJJJJJJJJ2845 – SHE IS THIRTEEN. ANYBODY would be upset in that situation, let a long a CHILD. You are the fucking retarded one.

  38. Honor says – reply to this


    38

    Marcus was in the bottom 3 times right? Even Marcus's coach L.A. said Rachel performance was better but he was going to be loyal to Marcus, expecting everyone to pick Rachel. Nicole did realize she was a judge, right? I don't think Rachel is scarred for life lol her reaction was funny but she is a child of modest means who has NO idea how to handle a situation like this. If she continues in this world, she may become a LOHAN but coming in fifth in a competition and having NicoleS fake cry will not damage her for life.



  39. 39

    First I'd like to say that we all know Marcus should have gone home a long time ago based on his talent.Rachel bea thim by a long shot!.Secondly her reaction was very normal considering felling humilated in front of millions of people..(Being Booted off the show).Also as far as the judging is concerned yes I do blame Nicole in a way because as we all know she has to be a professional and her being close with both singers means nothing..She has to understand she took the job to be a professional not a friend!!..The problem here is although people love the singers they dont bother to vote..Everyone in the audience was chanting Rachels name so if they voted it would have been different.. Rachels breakdown with her mom was that her family sacrificed alot for her to be there.No one knows what goes on behind the scenes and how much these singers have to pay out of pocket to be apart of it.Just like Drew's freakout a normal reaction.So for those who think its bad well I guess your human.Marcus should have left a long time before Drew..Nothing unique about him at all.Vocally I mean.As far as letting America vote.Really? What does America really know about talent obviously considering how most of these shows go.It's all a popularity contest instead of a talent contest.



  40. 40

    OMG I used to take up for Steve/Host but not anymore!!! Marcus tried to hug Rachel but he pushed him away and told him to get off stage!!!!!! Who does that!!!!!



  41. 41

    Re: AngelicDestiny – Well America should decide, they're the ones who are the future fans and will be buying music. You can be the most talented singer in the world but it doesn't mean shit if people dont connect with you and wont buy your music



  42. 42

    this is pathetic, this girl needs to shut the hell up. you shouldn't be on the show if you're going to handle a loss that way, you need to expect losses when you're on a show like that, it HAPPENS, its LIFE. i honestly want to punch that chick in the face, i don't give a shit who is more talented, if you can't handle yourself you shouldn't be moving forward, i'm so happy she is off now.



  43. 43

    And this is why under-16s shouldn't be allowed…that was cringey to watch.

  44. Honor says – reply to this


    44

    Re: pie107 – So agree, Marcus first instinct was to comfort her and he shoos him away……inhumane!



  45. 45

    You people trashing Rachel are such stupid pieces of shit. This little girl is 13 years old, she is was a crack baby whose mother put her up for adoption, and even though she has great parents, she lives in a packed house. Of course losing the opportunity to win 5 million dollars would be a shock to her! What did you people expect her to do? Stand there and wave like she didn't care? Shut the fuck up evil ass idiots. And she didn't say "you promised" as in i deserve this money, she said "you promise?" in response to her Mother saying "everything will be ok". It's so easy to make shit up so you can crap on a 13 year old child, isn't it?



  46. 46

    It's unfortunate that this happened, but again the little girl needs to understand that getting "voted off" is not the end of the world. I do not watch X-Factor or AI for the reasons listed in the video above. Sure, it's heartbreaking for her and it is totally understandable when she is being emotional, but to act like it's the end of the world, nope. Producers should have, or maybe they did we don't know, gone over how to act if voted off. Not totally turn these children into robots, but outlining how to act on television professionally in an unfortunate situation such as this. Cry, sob, and hug all you want, but don't be a diva.



  47. 47

    Re: LE BAMBI LOU BOP SHE BOP – Ya that's true. It's a "you promised" to her mother saying "Everything will be okay". And it will, she has the potential and the audience.



  48. 48

    damn, what a sore loser. i mean, she's 13, not a little kid. that reaction was way too over the top



  49. 49

    Re: JJJJJJJJJ2845 – well said.



  50. 50

    Lets not all blame Nicole. Paula leaned over and told her to deadlock it before she voted.
    And how about LA Reed on Wednesday Night making the Comment "I know I am not supposed to talk about it" "But I understand that Hollywood is swarmming around you and offers are coming in"
    I think he knew Marcus was in trouble and tried to let the voters know that if Rachel was eliminated this week then she still had Hollywood knocking on her door.
    If he was not suppose to talk about it then why did he mention it on National TV?
    All of them are to blame with including Simon he should have give Reed a shake down for mentioning it and addressed it on Wednesday.
    They should change the judges voting so that their votes are locked in immediately after the save songs and before any of the judges speak or vote.
    Nicole just got the short end of the stick because she voted last.
    She was a wimp though
    Marcus will be gone next week



  51. 51

    She is 13, she's still a kid. She has been mature on every other occasion, it's understandable that it was hard for her to be mature at this particular moment. This is her dream, and if a kid reacts like this, it's not exactly uncommon. Ask any parent.



  52. 52

    Hmm I didn't watch it yet but I finally get what was going on and what all the hype was about. Hmm that does seem like a weird decision on Nicole's part. Sounds like she was too nice to truly be a fair judge.



  53. 53

    With Nicole,it is and was all about her.Diva she is not and I truly hope this stays with her forever.she does not deserve to be a judge of anyone, but judge when she looks in her mirror.she knows she will wear this forever making an arse out of herself.



  54. 54

    Nicole clearly did everyone a favor. No one needs another immature little brat moving forward in that industry. Her reaction was so over the top and cringe-worthy I had to force myself to watch it. Sure, she's a good singer. Sure. But there's more mature talent on that show that's more deserving of a win. And if she's good, she'll be better when she's 16 or 17 and truly ready to be in that industry. That's all I have to say.



  55. 55

    What is wrong with these people? Crying like that! It is just a stupid tv show.



  56. 56

    My previous comments have to edited because I used the name Nicole instead of Rachael. Sorry. I just like the entertainment part of the stuff.



  57. 57

    MOM…YOU PROMISED????? PROMISED WHAT????



  58. 58

    Thank you nicole! You did the right thing. And that little brat tantrum annoyed the hell out of me. Mommy you promised. Go away.



  59. 59

    Re: WowzaChild – Really, who is the one behaving like a child in need of attention with that shitty haircut and cushy pin face with loads of make up on it? You have some nerve picking on a 13 year old when it's clear you are much more immature than she is. Just shut the fuck up brat, YOU go away!



  60. 60

    Re: kirknyc24 – gee, you're jealous of everyone!! lol you only seem to like girls when they have dicks!! #gaga'snose



  61. 61

    Re: LE BAMBI LOU BOP SHE BOP – lol bla and bla and bla, palm tree. Pathetic:)



  62. 62

    Re: STFUandDance – I completely agree with you!



  63. 63

    Re: WowzaChild – LOL pathetic is the extremes you go to for attention! I mean, look at yourself, you look like a crazy, ugly, anorexic bird! And don't get me started on that beak you call a nose! You want to pick on a 13 year old child? Then welcome to hell bitch!



  64. 64

    The UK version would have had a different outcome. They say if the last judge REFUSES to vote the elimination goes on the majority of the other three judges. Therefore Marcus would have gone home.

    By making her pick Rachel they forced the deadlock instead of sending Marcus home.

    Nicole is a pretty shocking actress. All that feigning… Shoulda stuck with Cheryl.



  65. 65

    I believe this whole thing was staged to play out like this. They knew who had the lowest votes all along, so the order that the judjes were selected to give their votes was staged just so. Why wasn't Simon the last judge asked instead of Nicole. He is always last but not this time. They wanted it played this way for more effect and drama. Rachel is getting signed by Disney and will have a smashing career especially with that voice. Poor Marcus. He was given another weeks reprieve but next week is the end of the line for him. What agony for the poor guy



  66. 66

    UGH! RACHEL IS THE BEST GIRL IVE EVER SEEN! NICOLE'S A STUPID WEAK HELPLESS IDIOTIC COWARD: THAT'S ALL! WHAT THE F***! I LOVE YOU RACHEL, KEEP SINGING!



  67. 67

    guys she's just a 13 year old girl… give her some credit she was in shock.
    she wasn't being a spoilt brat for all you who think so, if you had followed x factor from the start you would know her background and situation. So don't judge her.

    and on another note, she was being consoled by her mother, who was saying 'it'll be alright' not saying that she promised that rachel would win people! get with it and stop trying to put people down!

  68. auds says – reply to this


    68

    LOL what a bunch of losers. Seriously, this show is completely shitty & I would never watch it! Maybe it will go away now?



  69. 69

    how the hell could you said american idol is better, its just full of boring country singers…
    and what nicole did was so stupid, she had a perfectly easy time sending drew home the week before and rachel was CLEARLY the best between her and marcus…and don't start any of this stupid crap about how she's too young, anyone would be upset they went and obviously she was shocked because she WAS better!



  70. 70

    cheryl cole should have been the judge as well….



  71. 71

    Re: auds – "This show is completely shitty and I would never watch it" yet you somehow know it's shitty even though you have never watched it… Just shut the fuck up already you ego stricken shit face!



  72. 72

    Did anybody else see what I saw? While all the other judges are sitting on pins and needles waiting for the results Nicole was kicked back fixing her makeup with a big @$$ smile on her face. (pause it at 3:52)



  73. 73

    Re: LE BAMBI LOU BOP SHE BOP – Hell? Where? On Perez forum? LOL! I hope Rachel reads this blog and is amused by the culture of her fans :) Why would trash like you even connect to her? Opposites attract I guess :/



  74. 74

    I AGREE WITH MEOWINGLOUDLY TOTALLY, I LMAO TOO!!! First of all, that was a HOT DAMN MESS!!!!! I WATCHED STAR SEARCH FOR YEARS, AND NEVER, IN A MILLION YEARS HAVE I EVER SEEN A 13 YEAR OLD ACT LIKE THAT! She acted like a sore lose, if she would have been my child, I would have her told her little ass, "GET YOUR ASS UP OFF OF THAT FLOOR, AND STOP ACTING LIKE A DAMN FOOL!!!" That was just pathetic!! I don't feel sorry for Rachel, she acted worse than a 2 year old or 3 year old having a temper tandrum, AND ACTUALLY SHE DID HAVE A TEMPER-TANDRUM, HOW RIDICULOUS!!! FROM NOW ON, X FACTOR, YOU NEED TO GET A HOLD OF YOUR CONTESTANTS, AND HAVE A PEP TALK WITH THESE CONTESTANTS BEFORE THE COMPETITION, NO ONE WANTS TO SEE A SORE LOSER!!! That little girl needs to be taught that you're going to win some and lose some, thats a part of life, and if you no you can't handle it, then you SHOULD NOT COMPETE!!! ALSO, RETHINKING THE AGE LIMIT MAY BE THE NEXT STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR XFACTOR, BECAUSE I HOPE I NEVER HAVE TO SEE THAT TYPE OF HOT RIDICULOUS MESS AGAIN!!! ANYBODY CAN ROLL AROUND ON THE FLOOR AND ACT LIKE A DAMN FOOL, BUT IT TAKES A MATURE YOUNG PERSON TO HANDLE A LOSS WITH GRACE AND DIGNITY, AND THATS WHAT RACHEL CROW LACKED, GRACE AND DIGNITY!! THAT WAS JUST SO DAMN RUDE OF HER, SHE SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO EVERYBODY, TO THE FANS, TO THE JUDGES, TO HER MOTHER AND ESPECIALLY TO MARCUS CANTY!!!

    Rachael's theme song should be Johnny Gill's "The Floor". I could hear the song replayed in her mind. I believe Johnny says, "What! What!" I'm Gonna Hit The Floor! When Rachael went down to the floor I cracked up. She freaked out yelling Simon! WTF was that! Okay, I would hate to see what happens when her Disney run is short lived. Rachael will probably go all Chris Brown in the dressing room. I believe she was on the show trying to get money for her family…what a waste because it really was not about the music. Yeah, Rachel had a Hit The Floor Moment.She did not deserve to win anyway. It all made for good television if you ask me. She'll make her little 5 million on Disney and then she'll get all buck wild, blame her parents for pressuring her to do the XFactor, then she'll sue them for rights to her money. You can write this story in your sleep people…it's written all over the place. Child star gone wild story at ten, and we will all be back on Perez Hilton saying the same damn thing and more all over again. The Academy Award goes to Rachael…I bet Disney reps will ask Rachael, "Hey, do what you did on XFactor and kick some chairs…we'll give you a job in a heartbeat." Basically, Rachael auditioned for her acting career for Disney on the damn XFactor.



  77. 77

    Re: LE BAMBI LOU BOP SHE BOP – Oh get over yourself. She's obviously old enough to choose to be on a show, a show where people get voted off. She should've known the chances of getting voted off are much greater than actually winning the thing and if she wasn't aware of this, her parents should've made her realise this before signing her up for something like this. At the end of the day, she got the least amount of votes.

    When you are in the bottom so many times Judges have to think, damn people do not like this kid…IF Niclole had a brain rather than drooling over 19 year old black dick..she would have sent him home of the two performances Rachel was way better. But…the meltdown proves she is too young for this.



  79. 79

    Re: Moogle80 – Really? At 13 you think someone telling you how to behave certainly means you will behave that way? And have you ever been 13 years old, a crack baby, adopted, and living in a packed home? Just stop. And by the way, I am over myself but clearly some of you aren't since you stoop so low as to pick on a child as if you are gods and have a pattern for how this child should have behaved.



  80. 80

    Re: WowzaChild – No, to see hell all you gotta do is look at your face bitch or simply get to know yourself because I'm sure that's just as dark and depressing. I bet if you got your head run over by a car you would look much better than you do now. Maybe the impact would break that beak of yours and force you to eat and think differently, you "oh so unique" bird skeleton.



  81. 81

    RE: LE BAMBI LOU BOP SHE BOP: REALLY!! NO YOU NEED TO GET OVER YOURSELF AGAIN!!!! THERE IS NO DAMN EXCUSE FOR THE WAY RACHEL ACTED! YES, AND WE'VE ALL BEEN 13 YEARS OLD BEFORE IN OUR LIFETIMES. STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR THE WAY RACHEL ACTED, THERE IS NO EXCUSE!!!! I CAN SEE IF SHE WERE JUST CRYING, I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT, BUT DROPPING TO THE FLOOR, AND HAVING A TEMPER-TANDRUM IS UNACCEPTABLE!!! THERE ARE KIDS, WHO LOST ON SO MANY DIFFERENT SHOWS, AMERICA'S GOT TALENT, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, XFACTOR, STAR SEARCH, SHOWTIME AT THE APOLLO AND SO MANY MORE, AND NEVER HAVE I SEEN THAT DISPLAY OF DISRESPECT TO EVERYONE INVOLVED, THE FANS, THE JUDGES, RACHEL'S FAMILY, AND MARCUS CANTY!!!! NO EXCUSE!!!!!! THERE ARE CHILDREN YOUNGER THAN RACHEL WHO LOST AND DID NOT ACT LIKE THAT, AND WE'RE TALKIN 5YEAR OLDS, 6, 7, 10 YEAR OLDS WHO LOST AND THEY DID NOT ACT LIKE THAT!! THATS WHATS WRONG WITH THESE KIDS TODAY, TO BUSY MAKING EXCUSES FOR THEM, WE WERE KIDS, AND WE LOST COMPETITIONS TOO, AND WE DID NOT DISPLAY THAT TYPE OF BEHAVIOUR, AND BEING A CRACK BABY IS NOT A VALID EXCUSE!!!! GO TO UTUBE, AND WATCH USHER LOSE ON STAR-SEARCH, OR AALIYAH, OR JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND OTHER KIDS WHO'VE LOST ON STAR SEARCH, AND SOME OF THEM WERE YOUNGER THAN RACHEL, SO PLEASE STOP TALKING OUTTA THE SIDE OF YOUR NECK, BECAUSE THATS JUST A BUNCH A BULLSHIT THAT YOU'RE TALKIN!!!!!!
