The hair is back! Idol’s Sanjaya returns with EP, autobiog

January 23, 2009

TELEVISION-IDOL/“American Idol” finalist Sanjaya Malakar was one of the most talked about contestants in the sixth season of the hit TV singing contest due his various different hairstyles and pitchy singing. Now he is making a bid to build his 15 minutes of fame into a lifetime.

Sanjaya was just 17 when he made the top 12 in “American Idol” in 2007, winning the hearts of many of the youngsters in the audience who were dubbed “fanjayas,” although he failed to really impress the judges, particularly Simon Cowell. But now he’s back, releasing a five-track EP called “Dancing to the Music in My Head” and an autobiography of the same name. The story of his life dates back, oh at least two years, to give readers a “behind-the-scenes look at his unlikely rise to fame,” said a press release. 


(That was an error in signing up)Sanjaya, I think your hair needs bangs like when you sang” you really got me ” ,even though your hair looks beautiful in this picture,It looks haggard on your my space ,now. Looks great on Bill O Reilly,though..We Love you,don”t overdo,and get lot’s of sleep. You are really something special. P.S…Please don’t talk about posing nude,you’ll loose the huge fan base that is young and innocent,those that look up to you…Disney will snub you too! forever fans
