Sanjaya Out-Ranks NY Governor


Sanjaya Malakar is making the most of his twelve remaining minutes of fame, attending the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner as a guest of People magazine. Sanjaya holds quite a bit of clout still, as the staffers at People tried to get rid of an annoying autograph-seeker. “We are trying to let him eat,” the staffers told the bothersome man.

“But I’m the governor of New York,” responded Eliot Spitzer, and then he got his autograph. A reasonable person might assume he was getting the John Hancock for one or all of his teenage daughters, but Spitzer tells a different story. “I was trying to get a hair transplant,” he explained to New York Daily News.

  • I think it is a shame that so many people got sucked into the hype about Sanjaya. He could not sing and others better than he were voted off the show. Simon was right. It was very unfortunate for the more talented singers to have to endure what turned into a contest about popularity. American Idol is not about who is cute and who has the best hair. It is about TALENT!

  • He’ll probably be a star – at least for a while. He’s not my cup of tea, but then I ain’t thirteen…
    I think he needs to practise a better smile for the cameras, though. That’s just scary!

  • He wasn’t American Idol material. There was no hype about Sanjaya. Many just wanted to vote the worst singer to win and they could care less about singing abilities. Sometimes I watch him on other shows and I get the feeling he’s being made fun of and he doesn’t get it!
