Not that I’d normally want to give any (more) free press to he-who-is-known-by-moniker “hamface,” but I read a rather interesting piece on his site late last night about an unspoken play between Clay Aiken and Hilton himself to take Simon Cowell’s spot on American Idol.
So, before I ask you the question that’ll turn your stomachs, I need to know: who would you rather see as a judge on Idol, Aiken or Hilton? I’m going to have to go with Perez, you see. I think it’d make for pretty good entertainment. And I think that Perez and Randy Jackson would constantly be butting heads, because I don’t think Randy’d want to put up with Hilton’s over-the-top antics and shameless “look at me!” brand of self-promotion. And that could be interesting in itself. So, damn. I think Perez would make a fantastic Idol judge, don’t you?
Anyway. The question to gag a maggot, as referenced in the headline. Broadway-lovin’, showtunes-warbling Clay Aiken, or the preternatural portent-seeker, Perez Hilton? And you’ve got to answer; that’s the rule in this game. I don’t want to hear, “Ugh! Neither!” I want to hear honest, hardcore, “depends on the lives of your children, cats, dogs or Aunt Mabels that you decide” type of truth.
