Good for him! He didn't want to sell out to Idol's expectations and sacrifice his own instincts!

I'm suspicious of anyone who says something like that. I mean, he'd seen Idol before, right? He obviously knew how to play the game. If he thought he could come on and remain a "square peg in a round hole" individual for very long in the show, he must be a little deluded.

And I still like Sligh, but I'm getting a teensy feeling of sour grapes in that "Eh, I didn't want to win anyway" comment.

But I thought it was a really interesting interview, and am glad to see a former contestant come out and be so open about things.

That's true!

And yet I think he kind of "sold out" by staying on an extra week or two so that he could make the Top 10 Concert Tour and get paid.

Well, he needed to get something out of all this after enduring the bullshit insults from the judges!

But yeah, you're right. The selling out thing doesn't really apply here too much.

I thought he was enjoyable most of the time, and I do agree with him that it sucks that the judges rarely commented on his voice. We'll see if participating in the tour really allows him to make music for a living.


I think the funniest thing about the article is finding out that there's a college called "Bob Jones University!"

(and from the description of it....the scariest thing, too )

Me too. I thought he had a really lovely tone to his voice.

saw this on BestWeekEver.tv


Which Harry Potter Girl Is The Hottest?
England’s The Daily Mail has a scandalous news item about all of the underaged hot asses slated to appear in the upcoming Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. They posted a Brady-Bunch-style compilation of all the PYT’s, and frankly, we just can’t decide which one is the prettiest! Can you?

I hate, hate, HATE when American Idol losers say that they are glad they didn't win because they aren't trapped in their clutches of Idol then and can have more freedom. I read an article recently where Chris Daughtry said the same thing and that he got annoyed that the American Idol tag was still following him. If it wasn't for that show, you wouldn't have all of the fans and success that you do, so how about showing some gratitude for the show instead of suddenly being way too cool for it.

Yeah, I read a Daughtry thing where he was all cranky about the Idol thing, too.

Boo-frickin-hoo. Oh, you're such a serious musician and we must take you seriously!

Whatever, Daughtry. Go sound like Nickleback some more.

So much word. Both Chris Daughtry and Chris Sligh are major douchebags!!

While most of the country may have fallen in love with "American Idol" wannabe Sanjaya Malakar, there is one group that is finding his growing popularity a tad irritating -- his fellow "A.I." contestants!

An inside source revealed exclusively to TMZ that some of the remaining "Idol" hopefuls are annoyed that the vocally-challenged 17-year-old continues to advance, while other "more talented" singers get sent home. We're told the contestants are not-so-much mad at Sanjaya, but at the situation, which finds websites like votefortheworst.com and satellite radio host Howard Stern urging fans to keep Sanjaya in -- simply as a joke.

We're told the "Idols" don't find it funny, since it's their future being toyed with. Our source adds that the contestants find it troublesome that they all work so hard to pick the right song and rehearse each week, but it appears that all Sanjaya really has to do to move forward is to show up wearing a scrunchie.

TMZ contacted an "Idol" rep, who had no comment
