I loathe Chris Daughtry

I haven't posted in awhile, but this has been weighing on my mind. I know that it is a totally negative (and superficial) post, but when I become famous people will have equally snarky things to say about me and it will all be even steven. I may make some enemies with this, but I need to get it off my chest...

I consider myself a pretty big American Idol fan. I have followed it closely most seasons (except the Fantasia one) and I admit there is always someone grating on my last nerve (like Sanjaya - wtf are you still doing on there? America, sometimes you suck more than they do) But usually they all fade into the sunset when the cameras go down, release an album that I don't notice and that is the end of it. Except for Chris Daughtry. I will start by saying that he can easily pass for any other Nickelback-Creed-insert-name-of-random-rock-dude-I-don't-know-the-name- of-here and for that reason it is easy not to care. Not hate, but not care. There is not a thing special about him that makes him terminally unique, no winning personality, nothing. Now he has a song on the radio that I am forced to notice and I am haunted by more powerful feelings that indifference.

He bothered me all last season because he seemed to really think he was the one whose caca didn't stink (I suspect it smells like Boone's Farm and cigarettes). He did his same wannabe rocker performance over and over (this from a girl who totally dig Bo Bice, his alleged inspiration for auditioning). When he got voted off, I thought he was going to sock it to Ryan Secrest and not in the way Ryan would want. He looked shocked like he thought he already won and a little psychotically violent. Fast forward to an article I read now about an event he did:

It sums up every thing I think about him, that he is a self indulgent a-hole without a speck of gratitude for what he has been given and resentment towards the "corny" show that got him there. I mean, he refuses a Q&A for terminally ill kids?! Ugh!! They should send him back to his doublewide trailer back in Who-gives-a-crap, USA where he came from. And that's what I have to say about that. Don't buy his album, waste your $15 on one of the other bands that sound the same and haven't irritated the poop out of me yet. If he thinks it is lame to be known as the guy from AI, he should go back to the guy who isn't known at all. That's how I'd like it anyway.

Thanks for listening, that felt good. Here's a photo from the AP of Daughtry looking cheesy with the other Idols, which would probably make him cry his white trash Boone's tears...

I love ya! You just tell it like it is!! I only watched AI one season, so I have no idea what's going on and it sounds like I don't want to! :)

I can't stand the Bald Ego either! I don't know why American Idol is now sucking up to him by playing his song all the time and nothing from Taylor Hicks. What's up with that?

Kache said...

So that's a no on Daughtry?

They all should suck it up and embrace the fact that they danced and sang cheezy group numbers in front of millions of people, and that's the only reason they're selling records.

Loved your op-ed!

Now ain't that the (very sad) truth? And it can't be blamed on chads this time! Seconding anon above, Bo was the real deal.

Oh, I sure agree with you on this! The Bald Ego has his name tatooed "DAUGHTRY" in big bold gothic style letters across his shoulders in back - and I say it's a good thing he's got his name written there, because next year nobody's gonna remember it!

Nope, I don't like him. Never did. He's no Bo Bice!!!

Heather said...
