Our little American Idol 6 Champion, Jordin Sparks, had quite the sharp tongue when addressing the audience at this year's MTV Video Music Awards. All evening, the show's host, British comedian Russell Brand, had been making light of the Jonas Brothers' choice to wear purity rings as a symbol of their choice to remain virgins until marriage. . . . Does anyone remember Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears' similar promise . . . er, um . . . anyway . . . When La Sparks appeared on stage to announce an award, she grabbed the microphone and said, "I have just one thing to say about promise rings . . . its not bad to wear promise rings . . . not everyone - guy or girl - wants to be a slut".

A very interesting article surfaced today in my email box. Roger Ebert, for some reason, was interviewed about Republican VP Nominee, Sarah Palin, and he used American Idol to explain her popularity. Ebert says that it's easy to explain Palin's popularity . . . she's like an American Idol contestant. Explanation = American Idol contestants are attractive, likable, and inspire Americans to think that "hey, that could be me up there". Very interesting article . . . Click the link to check it out.
