Paris Bennett Supporting American Idol Finalist Sanajaya

April 15, 2007 02:58 PM by Joe Blackmon

It use to be that if you were a former American Idol finalist looking
to promote an upcoming CD then the best thing to do was claim that you
slept with Paula Abdul.  Now, it seems like the new best record
promoting tactic is to voice your support for current American Idol
finalist Sanjaya Malakar.

American Idol 5 finalist Paris Bennett, whose Princess P. CD is set to be released May 8, recently called into the “Tone E Fly Morning Show” in Minneapolis.  TMZ.com has audio of the call, where the DJ asked Paris Bennett about Sanjaya Malakar.

Paris Bennett revealed that she and a few other former American Idol finalist were voting for Sanjaya.  However, Paris was not voting for Sanjaya because he was her favorite singer, but rather she specifically mentioned vote for the worst.  Paris said “We want to see him win because it’ll kind of prove that American Idol is kind of losing its taste and that it kind of isn’t going for talent anymore but more for popularity, so we thinks it’s a joke and we’re voting because it’s funny.” 

When the DJ pointed out that American Idol helped Paris with her career but asked if she thought its time was over, Paris said “I think that definitely now having Sanjaya on it, it kind of reminds me of do you ever remember the movie American Dreamz that came out last year.”  After the DJ confirmed remembering the movie, Paris said “Ok, remember how there was the Indian guy or the guy from India and then it was Mandy Moore, that’s kind of what the competition seems like right now.”   We only wish the DJ had asked Paris  which of the remaining female contestants of Lakisha Jones, Melinda Doolittle, and Jordin Sparks that she thought fit the Mandy Moore character.

    Paris, the reason producers signed Kellie Pickler first is because they knew no one would want to buy a cd from someone with a lousy personality like yours. You need a likable personality which is something you are sorely lacking. You ARE A SORE LOSER and everyone knows it!
    Also it’s “WE THINK”, not “WE THINKS”. But then again it makes sense that someone as acedemically challenged as Paris would believe v4tw, with it’s 95% failure rate, would have any real impact anyway. They couldn’t even keep Antonella in! Paris, I will NOT buy your CD because I can’t bare to listen to someone sing that has a bad personality and a lousy out look on life. Even though Sanjaya doesn’t have the best voice, he sounds good AND IS LIKABLE! You ARE NOT! What you did is mean spirited and no one likes that. Get a life Paris!

    Paris should not be so proud as to brag about doing something so dirty. It is the voters like her who turn the show into somethig other than what it should be. She is just adding to the problem. I hope she knows that when you do bad things, bad things come to you. She should jus get a life or a hobby.

    I have to agree with Paris, Sanjaya is the worse and he is a joke. However because she and few others contestants are voting for him for a laugh shows what losers they are. Get a life and move on. Vote for someone that is worth voting for and stop being a loser.

    I always knew Paris was young and needed to grow up; didn’t know how childish she could be. I voted for her last year because I thought she had talent. What she is doing is mean to Sanjaya and showing her ungrateful she is to the show that help her get exposure. It is also a foolish move because she is losing fans who would have brought her CD and supported her.
