Sanjaya gives Idol a bad hair day
American Idol, fresh from a gossip about whether Ryan Seacrest might be gay or not, now has another reason to be discussed at the watercooler.
Sanjaya is 17 and cute as a button. He’s just not much of a singer….
Yet every week he is saved by public votes, and there is now a decided push to help the kid win. His charm, and his weekly-changing hairdos belie his vocal skills (which is sorta the whole point to the show). But although Idol is still America’s biggest show, there are many who deride it -gee that sounds familiar.
Now that legion of critics, including Howard Stern, is in a push to make “the worst singer win.” This is a clear case of an audience manipulating reality, instead of the reverse. It’s part of a push to bring Idol down, and this kid is the mascot. Or fall-guy. Or cause….
Pre-pubescent teenagers swoon at him performing. Fashion critics debate his styling. Some even say he is a camp icon like Liberace or Dame Edna. Sanjaya is becoming the most-talked about guy in the country. But how can you not love a guy who can make his hair do this?
Now have a listen to the poor kid sing.
