A teenage German hacker says he’s sorry for stealing pop songs from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kelly Clarkson[/lastfm] and other singers some previously unreleased and selling them online.

Deniz A. – whose last name has not been released – told Bild newspaper in an interview on Wednesday that he and a friend hadn’t set out to do anything wrong.

The 18-year-old says: “I’m sorry for everything I’ve done – I never thought it would go so far… we were only interested in the music.

Charges are yet to be filed.

Authorities say the two allegedly used a Trojan Horse malware to hack into the artists’ computers for about 12 months before being discovered and earned more than euro10,000 ($13,240) in illegal sales.

The theft forced the advanced release of several singles, officials said Friday.
