Sanjaya Malakar Inspires a Hunger Strike
After Sanjaya’s scary/comical/sad performance of "You Really Got Me" on Tuesday night’s American Idol, a woman on MySpace.com has vowed to forgo food until the singer is voted off. (Courtesy Fox)
TMZ has uncovered that a woman who calls herself "J" writes on her MySpace page, "Until the day that Sanjaya is no longer American Idol, I will be going on a hunger strike. This means I will refuse to eat anything until American Idol voters wise up, and stop voting Sanjaya through each week."
"J" says she is definitely hungry now, but is drinking a lot of fluids. She also says she is "having slight hallucinations." And now, a man identified at "idolmatt21" has decided to join the strike and is encouraging others to join the anit-Sanjaya coalition.
The Malakar Mystery: Although judges have consistently trashed 17-year-old Sanjaya’s performances, he continues to stay alive on the show. Simon Cowell has even gone so far as to say that if Sanjaya wins, he won’t return to the show. What in the world is going on? Are 12-year-old girls taking over the phone lines? The off key crooner who has been dubbed "boy blunderer" by some news sources, has even inspired Sanjaya fansites which also encourages fans to bet on Sanjaya. Has Howard Stern’s vote for the worst tactics actually worked?
Sanjaya told Idol that he had lived in Hawaii and could hula. The Aloha State is also responsible for the highest percentage of Idol searches year after year. Could this be the key? What is the Malakar mystery? Will you put your money on Malakar? Will "J" and "idolmatt21" waste away?
