Recent talk of American Idol corruption is indicative of how we can no longer enjoy simple, clean entertainment. While Paula Abdul is drunk, drugged up on pain killers and allegedly cavorting with former contestants, anti-American Idol protestors are bent on sabotaging the series with an online campaign to vote for the worst.
Why do people have such an urge to disrupt and destroy?
As humans, we are all entitled to our own opinion, but when it comes to something as simple as American Idol, why maliciously sabotage it?
Can’t those of us who actually like American Idol (and there are plenty of us!) just enjoy the young would-be popstars singing and Simon’s inevitable retorts? Let’s face it, this show is not meant to be taken so seriously.
But it is.
Millions of Americans vote for their favorite idol every week and many campaign fervently for their chosen one’s cause. As Bill O’Reilly said on his show last week, what a pity that so many Americans are not as motivated to vote for American President as they are for American Idol.
