I have no friggin’ clue…
It would certainly have to be categorized as a guilty pleasure. I do feel guilty for it. I would like to think that as lame as I am, I am still too cool to watch American Idol. Yet I watch every week – and I don’t really enjoy it for the most part. I don’t like the contestants – not a one of them. In fact, I really dislike the vast majority of them. They are all very talented – no doubt about it. I just don’t like them.
At times, the show even stirs up a certain level of homicidal rage that I was not aware that I was capable of. But I watch… Perhaps that’s the reason I watch. Maybe my life is just that boring that I need something to cause me insane levels of anger that I just would never otherwise feel.
Thank you American Idol.
