This Is News?

Alright, alright. Chart Rigger feels obligated to throw in its' two cents on this issue of American Idol Top 12 finalist Mario Vasquez leaving the show this week for "personal reasons." Here's what we have to say: WHO FUCKIN' CARES?!!?

Again, people, there's a war going on! There are evil things going on in the White House! Daft Punk has a new album out (which we're buying today)! This Vasquez dude was just a nobody, really. How is it that this is the talk of the week?

Well, to answer that question, we have to realize that AI is a FOX show, and FOX loves to do their spin in the news. There's probably something far more lurid going on in the world that's getting buried with all the "Mario left because he's gay!" or "Mario left because Puff Daddy lured him away to Bad Boy Records" stories. How personal can these "problems" possibly be when he did about 20 interviews yesterday with the press about his departure from the contest? The guy's a total zero in our book.

Oh well. I guess this officially makes us contributors to all that. But really, ya'll -- get over it. Showbiz will go on.

    You're too kind. He's at -57 in my book because he's so sleazy that it's not even funny. And his voice was not all that. Flat like the top of his head.

    He originally said it was due to "family" that he left, and when news stations broke the news to his family, his mom and brother were all like "OMG NO!! WHAT??? WHERE!??? WHY??? WAAAAAAH! DIOS MIO!" so yeah, very fake.

    This is a tragic use of serious news turned on it's ass and fudged/rewritten until it looks like a hairdo Britney would spawn.
    I think it was people would rather write about this than talking about the forthcoming Demi / Ashton demon child. Barf.

    Well, we certainly hope Mario becomes as famous as... Frenchie Davis.

    "Y'all" = you all

    "Ya'll" = you will/shall
