Girl Talk Apologizes For Breaking The Internet With All Day

17 Nov

Gregg Gillis went to sleep at around 7 a.m. Monday (November 15) and awoke several hours later to discover he had broken the Internet.

“I was up all night helping to get everything ready for the album, and eventually, I had to turn my phone off and ignore it so I could actually go to sleep,” he laughed. “And when I woke up at 3 p.m., it was, like, complete chaos. It was kind of like the Internet had erupted Girl Talk everywhere.”

Gillis — who you know as Girl Talk, the mastermind behind no-samples-cleared party starters like 2006’s Night Ripper and ’08’s Feed the Animals — is, of course, talking about All Day, the brand-new GT album he released out of nowhere (and for free) on Monday. You know, the one you’ve probably spent most of the day attempting (unsuccessfully) to download.

And yes, it’s been a pretty hectic day for him and his label, Illegal Art.

“It was already staring to bubble when I went to sleep. … It went up at around 5:30 a.m. Eastern Time. I actually posted a link on my personal Facebook first, and people on there were like, ‘Whoa, this is really it?’ ” he laughed. “I think the few kids who had been up all night or the people who don’t have day jobs who happen to be up at 5 in the morning were all kind of stunned by it a little bit.

“And then I announced it on the Twitter … and it started blowing up a little bit. You know, the Wikipedia page started, and people started listing samples,” he continued. “And again, since I woke up, it’s been insane … just endless messages and so-and-so person wants to talk to you today. … And then, people haven’t been able to download it, because the site has been down — which I’m sorry for — so, yeah, it’s been a crazy-ass day.”
