The Welsh singer for the band Lostprophets was sentenced Wednesday to 29 years in prison for multiple sexual offenses involving children.

Ian Watkins denies being a pedophile, says Gawker, despite the fact that at least one act was caught on film, and authorities found child porn when they searched his property.

Before his sentencing, he told a female fan, “I’m going to put out a statement… just to say it was mega lolz… I don’t know what everyone is getting so freaked out about.”

Oh yeah? Well, enjoy your “lolz” while serving mega-time in the secure housing unit.
