Being forced to watch American Idol tonight...UGGHHH
So a couple weeks ago I agreed to watch the 8 year old niece tonight so my brother and his wife can go out for their anniversary. Come to find out, she is a huge American Idol fan. My sister in law says that the TeVo option won't work and I'll have a cranky niece on my hands if I try it. To be honest, I don't have much patience for kids in general, let alone ones that are cranky. So, Ill grin and bear it for the hour or two it's on. Am I the only one that finds the show so corny and bubble gum like that I get an embarrassed feeling when I see parts of it while flipping through the channels? Apparently this is the results show where the remaining contestants all come out in the beginning and sing some brokeback cabaret type thing each week. I hate the show. I hate the fact that a couple of these kids will make it big without really paying their dues....not having to play in smoke filled bars for years before finally being in the right place at the right time and getting discovered. I hate how the public worships them. I really hate how each year they promote they have "rockers" that are actually about as much rock n' roll as the Backstreet Boys. Some people think it's just a jealousy issue. Well, I admit I am jealous of them making it. However, I would never want to gain my fame on a reality tv show and have to play that kind of music. Also, now at age 32, I've accepted I missed my ride. I did the "vote for Sanjaya" thing in hopes of him winning and taking all credibility from the show to kill it. Like Howard Stern I think they lied about the vote count to get rid of him before it became a comedy show versus a singing competition. Ok, I'm done venting and thanks for reading my rant LOL.
