Are we supposed to think she's cute?
I don't know who this "celebrity" is or what her function is on American Idol (since I've never seen the show) but this is why I HATE TELEVISION.
Whether her stupidity is an act or not is irrelevant. She got paid to be an idiot, but we're supposed to accept it because, as the New York Times article where I found this says, she's an "adorable platinum blonde." Not that the New York Times would perpetuate a stereotype...
So, children, forget studying. Focus on your appearance and a cute giggle. And you will be adored.
Later: When Dirtman and I finished watching a movie tonight, guess who was on some show? Yes, aforementioned vacuous airhead, whose name I forget again (but it's in The Times article if you're really curious. Probably everyone knows her but me...). It seems she sings -- I hope really, really, really well. And I'm hoping she's not planning to contribute to the gene pool.
