Teen Sorry for Hacking Gaga, Blames 'Ambition'
Now, however, the 18-year-old hacker has published a letter in Germany's Bild newspaper, in which he apologizes to the musicians he targeted, and blames his rampant "ambition" for getting the best of him. "Dear Lady Gaga," the letter begins. "I am ashamed of what I have done. I did not think about the consequences." German authorities have yet to file any charges against the alleged hackers, but state prosecutor Rolf Haferkamp told the Guardian that he already has enough evidence to "fill two fat binders."
Turns out, Deniz A, much like every other German, wants to be a DJ when he grows up. According to him, it's precisely this burning desire that drove him to such extreme lengths. His lawyer, Burkhard Benecken, added that his client "felt like he was in a movie," and that "he knows he made a mistake." In an interview, the aspiring musician reiterated his remorse. "I'm unbelievably sorry," he said. "We were only interested in the music." Aren't we all, Deniz. Aren't we all.
