Sanjaya Claims "Idol" Persona Was Really Just A Human Art Project -- in a videotape sent to, Sanjaya claims to actually be Bill Vendall, a graduate art student at the Rhode Island School of Design. He "created" Sanjaya as part of his thesis, explaining, "The character was part of a larger art installation."
People maazine reported that Sanjaya is taping a reality show produced by the producers of American Idol. I would imagine this is part of that.

True? Or, promoting a character/role for an a future appearance on TV? Who knows. Whatever -- he's milking his 15-minutes.

So, does "Bill Vendall" always speak like he's reading off cue cards?

Also, some of those comments worthy of YouTube:

3. Typical lying indian-DEPORT HIM NOW!


6. "You MIGHT want to pull the condom out of your ass...before you go on cam again"

Atom Eyes, I guess Freepers like celeb news as much as they like politics!

Wow, those homophobic & racist comments are depressing. Nothing brings out the misanthrope in me more quickly than youtube or youtube-like comments.

That said, he did come across as a incredibly arrogant, pretentious, and not at all articulate. I liked his former personality a lot (or what I saw of it from internet clips, as I've never watched American Idol) -- this one I could care less about.

But are we even sure it's him? Are those gigantic glasses hiding something?

I wish youtube had a profile checkbox that would remove the display of all comments from the site entirely. They are just a cess pool of ignorance.

Y'know, Rhomboid, that's a really great idea. I wonder if there's any client-side way to accomplish the same thing.

Well he did go to RISD...

Goddamn RISD scum. This is why we can't have nice things.
