Gnarls Crazy Deletion
PR reports: Gnarls Barkley's phenomenal hit 'Crazy' will be deleted this week, ending a phenomenal run of nine consecutive weeks at the top of the UK charts. The decision to delete 'Crazy' was made to ensure that the focus of the Gnarls Barkley campaign now falls on the second single, 'Smiley Faces', scheduled for a July 17th release.

On the subject of deleting the single, Gnarls Barkley himself was heard to say "I consider myself a realist. I suppose that goes for most of us. But I have found a way to at once hold them, fold them, walk away and run. This was not a painless decision. But pain is nothing but a bi-product of beauty. Potentially toxic, to be sure, but that's all it is."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
