Mike Portnoy Offering to Share His Secrets for $2.99 Per Month, Gets Bashed as 'Sellout' By Fans
Drummer extraordinaire Mike Portnoy is willing to "share his secrets" with all his fans out there for a mere price of $2.99.

What this is all about is an app called Tweet Secret, hooking subscribers up with exclusive daily videos of Portnoy during his music-related endeavors.

"You're gonna get sick of me!" Mike jokingly says in the intro video. "You're gonna get clips of me on the road, in the studio, at home... no matter where I am, you will be with me."

Soon after the announcement, Portnoy was bashed by a portion of fans as a "sellout." The drummer was quick to issue a response via Facebook, saying, "The Tweet Secret app is something fun that I was asked to be a part of (along with several other musicians, athletes, etc). I don't control the fact that there is a monthly subscription fee ... (but really, it's only $2.99 a month ... is that really worth complaining about?? That's less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks!).

"I figured you'd enjoy getting an inside, behind the scenes look into my day to day life. If this does not interest you, then fine, just ignore the posts that automatically go here when a new clip is posted and move on with your day.

"However, the nasty comments that seem to be popping up here calling me a 'sellout' or personally attacking me because of this app (which is not mine, mind you!) will not be tolerated and you will be banned from this page. There's no need to be mean and nasty around here," Mike concluded.

More info on the app here, also make sure to check out the app screenshot and video below.
