ex-Of Mice & Men bassist/vocalist comes clean

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 10:52 AM PT


When bassist/vocalist Shayley Bourget's departure from Of Mice & Men was announced three weeks ago, specific reasons for Bourget's exit were not disclosed. Bourget has now issued a video explaining everything (in addition to debuting material from a new project he's been working on):





We sincerely hope Bourget is able to overcome his issues.

Best evidence that bass players are meant to be seen, and not heard. Ever.

i remember puberty. it really is an awkward phase.

anonymous

does anyone else find it odd that he is clearly reading from a script? His body language tells a contradictory story...

anonymous

real classy.

keep the issues to yourself, don't address them for the entire fcking world to hear.

everyone goes through shit. you're not the only one.

you're not a unique snowflake.

jerk.

all of you guys have your rights to your opinion but cut this guy a little slack. i personally HATE this band, but it does suck what this dudes going through, no need to call him a pssy. everyone would handle this situation in a similar way if they were in a band of their stature. but on a serious level, i just think this dudes a straight alcoholic and his band obviously just kicked him out for it. he should stop trying to sugar coat shit.

anonymous

This was very moving. I hope someday you can be happy and your back feels better and maybe just maybe your balls will drop and you will stop being a fcking pssy. Eat a dck.

wah wah wah...I'm hurt my back, and that led to thoughts of suicide....oh, btw check out my new project!! A sob story makes great sales pitch....

2/29/2012 2:52:28 PM
The movie Of Mice and Men was great....but never heard of this band before. I though for sure he was going to say he was gay in this vid. Either way though depression is serious stuff and I hope the best for him.

What a fat baby gay, some kids out there are having bombs dropped on their head and this poof is having a cry about having been able to do something most people never experience. fck you and your self-important culture America.

2/29/2012 6:53:41 PM

I can tell from the video still that I don't want to watch that.

anonymous
2/29/2012 9:25:08 PM
Some of you guys need to get over yourselves, clearly none of you have actually hurt your back or wouldn't be saying shit. I've hurt my back and it is the worst. None of you have any idea what he could be going through

anonymous
2/29/2012 10:10:49 PM
Yah, I remember when I fcked my back up. Damn near ruined my life. I turned to alcohol and making gay videos though. After that, everything got instantly better.

anonymous
2/29/2012 11:19:04 PM
what is Of Mice and Men a reality show with interview snippets in between dressing like a gay and playing the worst music ever? Nobody gives a shit about anything you have to say, go put on some high heels and tell your guidance counselor about it

anonymous

What a fcktard to leave the perks of being in an overrated band that gets paid more than most in the genre...just so he can self loathe and do nothing. He should've sucked it up about his back issue and just smoked a shit load of weed which he could've gotten for free from the idiots that are OM&M fans.

"The movie Of Mice and Men was great...." <---- You honestly didn't know this was a book first? Did you not read in Junior High?

3/1/2012 9:15:38 AM
....how in the fck did this gay take 8 minutes to say "i quit the band because i'm emo"

anonymous
3/1/2012 9:50:38 AM
What a bitch. As a hockey player I've been injured badly several times but learned the most valuable lesson life can teach you: suck it up. Also your (former) band sucks.

3/1/2012 10:21:49 AM
"What a fcking pssy." repeat x 100000000.

Everyone in this thread is a gay. This guy in this video and his former band are all huge gays. Lambgoat is ruined....gays.

TELL ME BOUT THE RABBITS, GEORGE

3/2/2012 4:11:26 PM
He should've pussied on out and swallowed a bunch of pills instead of make this queer video. P.S. Didn't even watch it. I'm assuming it's queer from his body language and how he is dressed.

anonymous
3/2/2012 4:24:55 PM
He added music to set some sort of "sad" atmosphere, I've been holding off watching this video, but this is so creepy because of that. so worth it, band is terrible.

3/2/2012 9:07:41 PM
Awww diddums.

3/3/2012 6:28:49 PM
He puts the "E" in "E-mo puss-e"

Unlike every single person on here I feel for Shay, Of Mice And Men was one of my favorite bands and when i heard that he left I was really sad, but i hope when he feels better, he can show every person here that is an amazing musician.

anonymous
3/16/2012 12:04:52 PM
fck all of you haters for giving him shit. You obviously don't know shit about what he's going through. Of Mice and Men is a great band. Get over yourselves and shut the fck up. It really does take guts to let your issues out. Let's see you all try it you fcking pssys.
