As it turns out Chris Sligh from SanjayaIdol didn’t want you to vote for him anyway. He’s happy you didn’t vote for him. And he completed all his goals without your stupid votes. So there.
GREENVILLE, South Carolina (AP) — Chris Sligh, the curly-headed contestant from South Carolina who was voted off “American Idol” this week, said he considered quitting the show two weeks before viewers sent him packing.
Yes, quitting. As if Idol would have let him. Actually, on second thought, it would be a huge story and they’re attention whores so I guess, yeah, they would have. But thankfully, instead of quitting, Sligh just murdered a song. Good choice!
“I never came into this wanting to win it,” Sligh told The Greenville News on Thursday. “I made the Top Ten. That was my goal.” Sligh said he decided not to quit because the top 10 contestants participate in an “American Idol” summer tour that comes with a nice paycheck.
Dude, when you first try out they say “Do you think you can be the next American Idol?” You HAVE to say yes. Or they cattle prod you until you do. But it’s good to know you’re already working for a paycheck about four months into your career. That bodes well for your future. You’re passionate about… paychecks.
“I wanted to make the tour,” he said. “I wanted to be able to make music for my living, so I don’t have to work at the marketing company that I was working at.”
Totally. That marketing company was run by a bunch of fuck-ups. Screw those guys. That paycheck wasn’t good enough.
Next up, Chris attended ultra right-wing crazy college Bob Jones University. He was kicked out. Here ya go:
Leaving Bob Jones “was actually good, because I had been trying to figure out how to leave,” he said. Sligh is scheduled to appear on the show’s May 24 finale.
To recap. 1. He wanted to quit Idol. 2. He wanted to quit his marketing job. 3. He was going to quit Bobby Jones but they booted him first (probably for not praying hard enough for George Bush).
We wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors Chris! You don’t sound high maintenance at all!
