I knew by the buzzing of my cell phone and the dinging of my email that Sanjaya survived yet another week. As for me, I refused to watch the results show. This season is a farce thanks to countless idiots trying to keep Sanjaya in for the laughs.
Next week, I’m going to vote with my remote: I won’t watch but, instead, will call in my votes for every other contestant besides Sanjaya. Don’t care if they’re good. Don’t care if they forget their words, if their song choices are bad, or if they scream the entire song through. They’ll still be better than another week of the Boy Blunder.
I am not taking it as far as this fan, however:
LOS ANGELES (March 21, 2007) — While many fans are left scratching their heads as to why Sanjaya Malakar is still singing on “American Idol,” one fan is taking a stand against his road to “Idol” glory.
A young lady who calls herself “J” on MySpace is staging a hunger strike until Sanjaya and his ever-changing locks are voted off of “Idol.”
“I have always been a big fan of American Idol, so like many people I was excited for the 6th season to start this year. Aside from the initial debacle with contestant Antonella Barba, season 6 was starting to look like it may be actually very good. However, there is one hinge in this broad spectrum of talent this year … Sanjaya Malakar,” J writes on her MySpace page. “We have no problems with Sanjaya personally…However, he does NOT belong on ‘American Idol.’”
“So until the day that Sanjaya is no longer American Idol, I will be going on a hunger strike. This means I will refuse to eat anything until American Idol voters wise up, and stop voting Sanjaya through each week,” she states. “I you would like to see this hunger strike end, the only way to let this happen is to vote for anyone OTHER than Sanjaya after ‘American Idol’ on Tuesday.”
(Catch her video here.)
Look, I’m as disgusted as the next person that Sanjaya’s still on — and don’t hand me that “But he’s got a beautiful soul” crap because I don’t know the guy nor have I heard anything about him that makes him sound so exceptional that his lack of talent should not count in a damn talent show!
But to give up food? Not a chance.
Now, chocolate… that’s another matter.
So I, Venomous Kate, hereby pledge that I will not eat chocolate in any form until Sanjaya is voted off of American Idol. Not one bite. None.
Save a life. Give me back my chocolate. Vote for everyone else but Sanjaya next week!
