Kicked off the interview with Playboy Contributing Editor Rob Tannenbaum with an open revelation about his criminal record and his hard-partying habit, Kroeger also recalled on the stupidest thing he ever did for a case of beer, saying "I put my own d*ck in my mouth. I was 14 and much more flexible at the time. It was soft and required a lot of pulling. I really wanted that case of beer." Being quizzed on thinking it is fun to be bad, the musician said, "I don't know how many times I got kicked out of school. I just thought it was fun to be bad. To a certain degree I still think it's fun to be bad. You should just never do anything that's going to hurt someone else."

A cut from the lyrics is: "Talking about, 'Girl I love you, you're the one,'/ This just looks like a rerun/ Please, what else is on?/ And don't tell me you're sorry, 'cause you're not/ Baby, when I know you're only sorry 'cause you got caught."

Put the brake on the conflicting reports, The Game explained, "I apologize for the conflicting news on my release, but due to the sensitive negotiations on this matter I felt it appropriate not to give an exact date on my release." He then went on saying, "I am truly grateful to my attorney, family and management for doing a great job in this respect.
