Idol gossip. (The Buzz).
Portions of the journal leading up to his debut on American Idol reveal a good-natured young man with an affinity for teen-popsters like 'N Sync and O-Town, "good gay flicks" like The Broken Hearts Club, and writing songs for his close friends. In one particularly charming entry, he declares, "I found out that a guy likes me!!! Ummn, totally random and I never even saw it coming, but hey, it's cool. He's adorable in, like, every way."
The Chicago-based singer was cut from the viewer-polled program on July 17, and repeated calls to Fox were not returned. Ironically, the winner of Pop Idol, the smash British program that spawned American Idol was Will Young, who came out shortly after his first single topped the U.K. charts.
