With the help of the Internet, the road to stardom can truly take weird and unconventional paths. For example, just last week someone climbed into Antoine Dodson‘s sister’s bed and allegedly tried to rape her. Dodson made his thoughts on the incident very clear to Huntsville, Alabama‘s local TV news affiliate WAFF. Someone recorded the newscast and uploaded the clip to YouTube. Now Antoine’s an Internet superstar with fansites, t-shirts and a slew of fan inspired auto-tune remixes including the “Bed Intruder Song” by The Gregory Brothers.
