Beyond the stipulations, though, Shkreli hasn't even listened to the entire album himself. He was permitted one listen prior to the purchase, but, as a pharma money-hog would, he dispatched an assistant to do the listening.
If you haven't wanted to punch the guy yet, well, try suppressing that feeling after this quote:
“I could be convinced to listen to it earlier if Taylor Swift wants to hear it or something like that. But for now, I think I’m going to kind of save it for a rainy day.”
Just to be clear, a guy who said "I think I could have it raised it higher and made even more profit," about raising the price of an AIDS drug by 5,000% said he'd dust off a $2 million album he hasn't listened to so he could get a date with Taylor Swift. DON'T DO IT, TAY TAY.
