Well, it's late May again; time to watch all the TV finales, get ready for summer, and to celebrate all the VFTW Victories! we always have during American Idol. Season 9 was a season of change (sic. decay) for American Idol but one thing that never changes is that there's always a worst. And while the show struggles with pathetic ratings and Simon leaving, VFTW struggled with choosing only one person as our pick from what was the worst cast EVER. Struggled until one young, shirtless, clueless man smiled his way into our lives, making VFTW history in the process. Read on to re-visit all the VFTW Victories we celebrated this year...
Chris Golightly claims that he wasn't under contract when he tried out for Idol in 2009, but Dream Projects Entertainment says he did. Chris was disqualified for this and now he's fighting it. So who's right? Looks like it's not Chris. TMZ has obtained a copy of the two-year contract Chris signed on May 30, 2009. That would make him ineligible to go on Idol. BUSTED. So stop whining, Little Orphan Trannie. You did this to yourself. Why would you sign a 2 year contract right before trying out for Idol? Not too smart. Apparently, Chris is holding a press conference today to whine about being disqualified.
Edited To Add: Joe's Place has Chris's release from the contract. So Chris does have a release. And it's funny because so many words are spelled wrong. So what does this teach us? Chris's former manager can't spell and Chris was not smart enough to sign a contract with correctly spelled words. All around, looks like everyone's a loser here.
Chris Golightly never gained that skill of knowing when to shut the fuck up. But that's great news for VFTW, beceause finally this season got interesting! Little Orphan Trannie has been whining about his Idol disqualification due to a contract he was signed to. Some of his best quotes from USA Today and AI Now that make him look even more annoying:
Chris says an Idol attorney called him last night and told him he his ouster took place because he hadn't been forthcoming about his contract. "But I went and looked this morning," Chris says, "and I said, no, I was not in a contract. If he's trying to say that's what it was about, they're covering their ass."
"It hurts, man. This hurts me so bad because I sleep in a garage. I have no money. I grew up in the foster care system all my life, being abused and everything. Music has always been my outlet. This is messed up what they're doing."
"This is [explicit] up what they’re doing, you know? They let Michael Lynch back on after he broke the contract. They said he breached it and his dad blabbed his mouth and they reinstate HIM, you know what I’m saying?...What’s going on? Where’s the justice in that?"
Chris said he'd had a great Hollywood experience. "The second day of Hollywood Week, they were all like Chris, Chris, Chris," he says. "The third day, they're not allowed to say anything, because that's our final performance, but they were smiling and clapping and pointing, like, yeah, that's him, you know?
And the whole thing is, the inside scoop is that the vocal coaches of AI were saying that I’m the favorite to be in the top 3 because of my ability to sing and entertain when they saw me do Hollywood week and when they saw me do groups and when they saw me do the band the 3rd day they said that I was the favorite, that I had been the favorite. This is messed up man! This is REALLY messed up."
This guy is hilariously delusional! Who knew he would've made an excellent VFTW pick after all? Chris says that he's working with his lawyers (that he pays with the money that he doesn't have), because he wants Idol to give him what he thinks he deserves... a record contract. Good luck getting anything after coming across like a whiny bitch in your interviews. But thank you for finally giving us something hilarious to laugh at during this season of Idol.
Chris Golightly, unaffectionately known as Little Orphan Trannie, was disqualified from the top 24 when Idol producers found out that he was signed to a current recording contract. Chris told JoesPlace Blog that he had an old contract that expired in June of 2009 and that Idol disqualified him because he couldn't find the paperwork to show that the contract was over. Not surprisingly, Lawrence Franklin of Dream Projects Entertainment has a different story. According to Idol Chatter, Franklin says Chris was signed to a new 2-year contract in May of 2009. Franklin says he was trying to let Chris out of the contract once he found out that he had to. But Idol flip flopped and said that since Chris was in a current contract, they had no choice but to disqualify him. So it's just Chris's fault for waiting until the last minute to get this resolved. Good riddance. If we had to hear one more boo hoo story about how no one loved him, we were going to slit our wrists. On the down side, Little Orphan Trannie will now be all over the news whining about his story. On the up side, people will forget about him rather quickly and no one will care anymore.
