    Okay, so all is well with your little meeting. Now lets stop all this red tape and get on with it Fenster! Unchain Archuleta and set him free to do his thing. Stop purposely holding him back for the gain of contractual Bieber’s publicity and the attention to Idol season nines contesants and using the excuse of this long term abnormal writing scheme, just to keep Archuleta out of the picture. You’ve scheduled him to be secluded long enough with all these writers just to keep him out of the limelight for the sake of Justin Bieber and Idol’s season
    nine’s contestants. It’s greedy and selfish just for the love of money when David should be publicized more so than Lambert, Bieber and season nines contestants
    Stop the deception for your contractual financial gain. You make us fans believe that he’s writin all this music that by now should at least be a double CD and you’ll end up selecting a few songs

    until and., you know like keep him out of the picture so Bieber can get all the attention. Or
    unless it’s contractual within your other sources.
