    Dear American Idol,

    Die. This is such a terrible idea for a show, it makes me sick.

    My little brother brought up a very interesting point to me the other day..... The people that run this show search out and pick contestants. Then they put them through all this crap, and make a big show about it. They find out who has the best voice, by getting votes from the public. So then when said person wins, they get all these record deals and start making "garaunteed to sell" music. And they make more money, mwuhahahahahaha. What kind of shit is that? It's a big fucking scam..... barf! This show is right up there on my list with "Who wants to be a millionaire," "Survivor," "The weakest link," "Love cruise (or whatever the fuck it's called)...."

    Love,
    Disfuckingusted Dirty
    and Mental Invalid

    Fortunately I've been without access to TV since this started, so I haven't even had to flick past it. Just listen to all the fucking idiots at work blabber on endlessly about it. I saw a picture of the winner on the cover of the paper going to work today and she is all that is wrong with the world. Everything about her just made me hate....no clue why....I wanted to fucking punch her out and I know nothing about her.

    people like that stuff because they can "relate" to and/ or hate on the people on the show.

    on another note that english judje is fucking funny. Hardcore disses on some of the contestants

    "do you have a singing coach?
    "well, i used to"
    "do you have a lawyer?"
    "no"
    "well get one and sue your coach.That was the most terrible thing i have ever heard. Next!"

    It's the entire entertainment industry: Television, Radio, Music, Motion Picture - using their mega-marketing schemes to manufacture and churn out more crap to the foolish American Public. Talent has absolutely zero to do with it.
    If anyone ever watched "Boy Band" or "Pop Star" you would start the get the idea.

    People watch the show on TV, then they go out and buy the latest CD, then they play it on the radio on heavy rotation, then they make a movie - and then the singer fades away and a new one is "discovered". And all this time - Disney (or Viacom, or Sony) make a gazillion dollars.

    It's amazing, think of how many people are going to go out and buy the cd that whoever won that contest is going to put out.

    Fucking suckers.

    What's worse is when people do it "as a joke". I'm sure most you guys know someone like that...
    They sit in front of the tube watching every goddamn crapfest - "because it's fun to make fun of" and it's "fabulous"...
    Gay men are notorious for that shit.
    Soon enough people won't even know what's 'campy' anymore, they'll just keep getting suckered into wasting their money on bullshit.

    Suckers.
