Hunger Strike Against Sanjaya?

by Venomous Kate

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!

  1. I didn’t watch, I had two things that were more important TiVoing… You aren’t going to EACH chocolate until Sanjaya’s gone? :>)) So, who did get the boot?

  2. See, I’m already manifesting chocolate withdrawal symptoms. Good spelling is frist to go.

    ;)

  3. And it was Stephanie who went tonight. I’m going to have a few of my Valentine’s dark chocolate m&m’s because I’m not giving up chocolate until Mr. Tiger Beat’s gone and I can. Only about 5 however. I do try to do chocolate in moderation.

  4. Stephanie?! That’s a damn shame. Her song choices haven’t been the best, but she certainly sang better than Sanjaya or Hailey (whom, I suspect, is now pulling in Antonella’s fans).

  5. Amazing how quickly VH grew interested in American Idol following my “No Chocolate Until The Crap Ends!” announcement.

    He knows that means there will be more left for him.

    I bet he votes for Sanjaya.

  6. A woman giving up CHOCOLATE??? Say it isn’t SO! What will happen NEXT???…Will VK give up SEX??? That would show serious backbone!

    It would be a serious LACK of (back) bone :)

  8. I just can’t wait until the season is over, and Melinda Doolittle has an album out.

    I find myself diggin’ Chris Sligh, too. I am interested to see what he does with Gwen Stefani’s coaching next week.

  9. Hi,
    Your crusade,hunger strike againts Sanjay will only increase his popularity and that means more votes.Thanks for contributing.Are you that jobless and bored dear!!!!

  10. You don’t read very well, do you? I’m giving up chocolate — and even that’s rather tongue-in-cheek.

  11. If that kid had any type of honor, he would leave or resign on his own. This ia a singing contest and it is unfair to have people vote for any other reason other than singing well. I have to agree with Simon Im getting to the point where I don’t want to watch because the show is missing the point on what its about.

  12. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE THAT SANFRAN IS STILL ON IDOL…STOP VOTING FOR THE WORST, THIS IS ABOUT SINGING AND STYLE. IT’S NOT ABOUT SOME RECORD COMPANY LOOKIN TO TAKE CHANCES…THE PUBLIC SHOULD BE MAKING THE OBVIOUS DECISIONS ON TALENT AND NOT GIVE IN TO STUPID ASSANINE SUGGESTIONS LIKE VOTING FOR THE WORST…THAT’S SO CHILDISH…PLAYING WITH TRUE TALENTED PEOPLE AND THEIR CAREERS…GET SANDYMAN OUT NOW!

  13. IDON’T LIKE IDOLS USING AGE DISCRIMINATION. ALL THEY HAVE IS A GROUPE OF TWIRPS, TRYING TO BE WHAT THEY CAN NEVER BE.
    AGE DISCRIMINATION IS AGAINST THE LAW.

  14. Dear American Idiot, whose IP address is all the same despite your insistence on pretending to be other people:

    One more fake identity or another COMMENT LEFT IN ALL CAPS and I’m banning you.

    UNDERSTAND YOU FREAKING RETARD?!!

  15. I DON’T LIKE IDOLS USING AGE DISCRIMINATION. AFTERALL IT IS AGAINST THE LAW.LAST YEARS WINNER WAS GREAT, THIS YEAR ALL THEY HAVE IS LITTLE TWIRPS,TRYING TO BE WHAT THEY WILL NEVER BE.

  16. Sanjaya rules! Does that mean you will never eat chocolate again if he wins it all? Oh, and that chick on My space starving herself is gonna die if she does what she pledged. I have never watched the show by the way.

  17. I call it “American Eyesore”. Or maybe “American Asshole” (both Simon and the contestants).
    Anybody who knows anything at all about music knows that anyone could walk right into any music department of any major university in the country and pick out anybody very nearly at random who could sing rings around anybody who has ever appeared on “American so-called ‘Idol’”. American Idol is a charade, put together to get people to tune in and furnish consumer-poll excuses for advertizers & sponsors. To hear real trained singers, consult your local university music department. Or the American Federation of Musicians (A.F.M). Or your local opera house.
