'Bed Intruder' Singer Moves Family Into New Home
Antoine Dodson, the 24-year-old Alabama native who became a YouTube sensation after he chased a would-be rapist from his sister's bedroom, tells UsMagazine.com he is moving his family into a safer home.
We found a house!" he tells Us, adding that he is excited. "It's for my whole family. And these are new houses that have just been built."
Dodson is paying for the new pad thanks to money he earned after musicians the Gregory Brothers turned his tirade into an Auto-Tuned song that hit the top 50 iTunes list (Dodson got half the proceeds).
"I still can't believe this," he tells Us of his sudden fame. "Even though my life is moving forward, it's at a standstill in my mind. I'm like, 'Wow! All of this is happening just off a news interview!'"
Dodson says he doesn't regret going off in the now-infamous news segment.
"I was angry!" he tells Us. "I was like, 'I can't believe this!' I was really mad and everybody took the video and put it all out there. Now I'm glad that the world knows what's going on so they won't sweep this under the rug. This will bring pressure on the police department and investigators investigating the case."
Incidentally, he tells Us that police still have no leads.
Luckily, he tells Us, "We made enough to move and get a house."
Dodson says he also plans to return to school. "I signed up to finish my associate's degree in business," he says. "That way I can take everything to the next level and be on a more professional level."
His ultimate goal? To "open a salon," he tells Us. "Or a hotel."
