  1. Hmm... I thought the big deal was that he was gay?

    Hell, that article about Anderson Cooper you liked to earlier Andy swears it's true.

    But, he has to be gay. Everyone on Datalounge said he was! This is just a coverup story. He's really gay. He has to be. It's the only story worth telling.

  2. To add to the whole "he might be a trannie" issue. There's a Margarita Vasquez listed as a background singer.

    Here's the allmusic link to the credits for the album...

    I know I'm a nerd.

    If it doesn't work just put in the album title and it's the first choice.

  5. He may not be gay, but those fucking hats she wears sure as hell are.

  6. He's gay, it's just not the reason he left IDOL. It was a contractual thing (read: $$$)

    I hate Fox News but have to admit their Fox 411 columnist Roger Friedman has the inside scoop on everything. I check his column daily.

  7. Newsflash!

    My post was SARCASTIC, lampooning that very thought. Not everyone is gay, but sure as hell if everyone didn't say he was as the reason for dropping out.

  8. Well, I haven't been paying much attention to the idol show... I usually show up when the winner is picked... but like Aiken this one is probably gay as well. His real interest is money of course, as someone up above has stated.. and fame, etc. The "im keeping my gayness a secret, because I'm a star", is growing dull by the moment... let's face it these kids aren't Elton John, Barry Manilow or Liberachi... they aren't of that era where things were a bit bigger and far more talented.

    I think this young man is making a mistake regarding leaving the show because of the contract that supposedly isn't lucrative to his pursuits. He'll be quickly forgotten... the exposure that he has enjoyed recently, will dry up like the parting of the Red Sea.

    Yeah, he'll make a record or two but he would have been better off by winning the Idol show. Then he would have had something concrete to look back on. As it stands he's an unknown and Rock isn't kind to anyone.

    This kid ain't Elvis Presely... I mean really!

  9. I want to know how Clay Aiken got out of his Idol contract? That must be some good lawyer.

  10. Famewhore. I hope everything blows up in his face (and not in a good, porny way).

  11. This just in on NY POST Page Six:

    "Nestled in other corners of the hot spot were Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, Chelsea Clinton and "American Idol" escapee Mario Vasquez, whose newfound fame seems to have warped his brain. Vasquez was told to keep his distance from the Simpson sisters after pestering them to pose for a picture with him, says our spy. "He told Ashlee and Jessica, 'I know what it's like to be a celebrity and to be harassed. I'm so glad to be in a private area.' And then he wanted to take a picture with them! They said no like four times. Finally, security asked him to leave the area."

    What a delusional ass.
