City American Idol Disses Seattle

You know how when you call your mom a fat ass, it’s hilarious, but if someone else does it’s war? That’s totally how I feel about this Entertainment Weekly article, in which the folks of American Idol trash the Pacific Northwest.
As EW’s Jessica Shaw writes of American Idol’s new season:
Brace yourself for some new lows. ”Season 6 has the most delusional people I’ve ever seen,” says [Paula] Abdul. ”If people love that part of the show, they’ll love this season.” And they’ll be positively besotted with the city of Seattle, which [exec producer Nigel] Lythgoe says ”stands out as possibly the worst city I’ve ever seen for crazies. Maybe they’re drinking too much coffee.”
Granted, the Pacific Northwest is packed with impressive crazies, along with countless casualties of the “if you can dream it, you can do it” school of positive affirmation (dreaming about Beyonce does not enable you to sing like Beyonce, tragically). Nevertheless, fuck Nigel Lythgoe and Paula Abdul and every other American Idol fuck for bad-mouthing my hometown’s talent pool. I hate to think of Seattle’s wonderfully deluded and talented freaks wasting their gifts on those fucks from Fox.
It kinda makes me miss Pizzazz!
