|Ex-Lostprophets singer, Ian Watkins, faced his sentencing for child sex offences today and received 35 years imprisonment from Cardiff Crown Court. To make things even more grim, it has now been revealed that after admitting to the offences last month, Watkins has made phone calls from prison describing the events as "megalolz" and that he "didn't know what everyone was getting so freaked out about".

On November 27, the day after he admitted he was a paedophile, he said of the court hearing: "It was, like, either me go up there and say 'Come on, it wasn't that bad, nobody got hurt', I do my charm. Or do I end up making things worse for myself? Or do I just say I was off my head and can't remember?" Discussing his possible sentence, he added: "I'm going to put a statement on [December] 18th now just to say it was megalolz, I don't know what everyone is getting so freaked out about."
