RUNNER’S UP

WHAT’S THE BIG FUSS LATELY REGARDING NATIONAL RUNNER’S-UP ?  

  FIRST IT WAS ADAM LAMBERT FROM AMERICAN IDOL, AS SOON AS THE SHOW WAS FINISHED HE LANDED IN THE HOSPITAL, THEN THE RUMOUR MILL STARTED WITH HIS BEING GAY – AND OF COURSE FOR RATING REASONS THE MEDIA PLAYED ALONG WITH THE NOTION THAT HE WAS SUPPOSEDLY THE FAVOURITE AND EXPECTED TO BE THE ULTIMATE WINNER.

AS FOR THE SEXUAL ORIENTATION ISSUE – I CALL IT THE CLAY AIKEN SYNDROME. ANYONE WHO WAS SURPRISED WHEN IT WAS DISCOVERED CLAY AKINS WAS GAY HAD TO BE LOOKING AT SOME OTHER PROGRAM, BECAUSE IF YOU COULDN’T TELL HE WAS GAY ON AMERICAN IDOL, LIKE ADAM LAMBERT, THEN YOU DIDN’T WANT TO KNOW OR THEIR TALENT WAS SO GREAT THAT IT OVERSHADOWED HIS SEXUAL ORIENTATION? WHICH IS WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING IN THE FIRST PLACE – AS FAR AS I’M AWARE IT’S A SINGING COMPETITION – NOT A HETEROSEXUAL SINGING COMPETITION BUT AN ‘EVERYBODY WITHIN A CERTAIN AGE GROUP COMPETITION.’ BESIDES ADAM LAMBERT LOST WITH LESS THAN A MILLION VOTES OUT OF SUPPOSEDLY 89 MILLION RECEIVED VOTES. HOW CAN HE BE SEEN AS ANYTHING BUT A WINNER ? HIS FANS WILL MAKE HIM A STAR – LIKE THEY DID WITH CLAY AKINS…WHO WAS ALSO AN AMERICAN IDOL RUNNER-UP.

THE BOTTOM LINE COMES DOWN TO TALENT – CLAY AKINS IS A GOOD SINGER, AND HE SELLS RECORDS. END OF STORY.

THEN CAME THE DISCOVERY OF SUSAN BOYLE FROM ‘BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT.’      

AGAIN SHE WAS (ACCORDING TO THE SO CALLED EXPERTS) THE ONE TO BEAT. SO WHEN SHE CAME IN SECOND, OR RUNNER-UP AND ALSO LANDED IN THE HOSPITAL AFTER THE SHOW – IT SEEMED AS IF EVERYWHERE YOU TURNED IT WAS ‘SUSAN BOYLE’S’ TURN ON THE RUMOUR MILLS. THANKFULLY BOTH LAMBERT AND BOYLE SEEMS TO HAVE RECOVERED FROM WHATEVER AILED THEM.

THEN IT GOT WEIRDER STILL WHEN CARRIE PREJEAN, MISS CALIFORNIA AND RUNNER-UP TO MISS U.S.A.,   

WAS ASKED HER OPINION ON SAME SEX MARRIAGE, AND BEING FROM A STATE WHERE SAME SEX MARRIAGES IS LEGAL THE QUESTION SEEMED APPROPRIATE, HOWEVER BECAUSE OF HER BELIEF IN THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE SHE DECIDED TO GO ON BY SAYING SHE STILL BELIEVED A MARRIAGE SHOULD BE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN, AND BY DOING SO SHE FELT SHE WAS DENIED THE TITLE OF MISS U.S.A. THE ONLY PROBLEMS WITH HER SCREAMING TO ANYONE WHO’D LISTEN WAS THAT SHE DIDN’T HAVE THE SCORES TO BACK-UP HER STORY SINCE SHE NEVER RECEIVED THE HIGHEST SCORES FROM THE JUDGES ALL NIGHT LONG, IN ANY CATEGORY AND THEN CAME THE TOPLESS PHOTOS SPREAD ON THE INTERNET WHICH CONFUSED MANY, HOW CAN SHE BE A STRONG CHRISTIAN WHEN IT CAME TO SAME SEX MARRIAGE, BUT ALLOWED SOMEONE TO TAKE TOPLESS PHOTOS OF HER DURING HER MANY YEARS AS A MODEL? SHE SIGNED A CONTRACT ASKING HER IF SHE’D EVER HAD NAKED PICTURES TAKEN OF HERSELF AND SHE LIED ON THE APPLICATION AND ANSWERED NO. THE CONTRADICTIONS WERE TOO MUCH AND EVENTUALLY SHE WAS STRIPPED OF HER MISS CALIFORNIA TITLE FOR BREACH OF CONTRACT AND NOT PERFORMING HER DUTIES.

  WE’VE ALL AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER HAD VARIOUS DREAMS AND FANTASIES ABOUT ONE THING OR ANOTHER AS CHILDREN, AS A YOUNG MAN I HAD DREAMS OF ONE DAY COMPETING IN ‘MALE PAGEANTS’ WHICH WEREN’T AS PREVALENT WHEN I WAS A CHILD AS THEY ARE TODAY. AS I GOT OLDER AND MOVED TO THE BIG CITIES IN CANADA. I EVENTUALLY FOUND AN OUTLET WHERE I COULD COMPETE AND DID FAIRLY WELL. EVENTUALLY AFTER QUALIFYING FOR THE MR. CANADA SCHOLARSHIP PAGEANT. I TRAINED VERY HARD TO BECOME WHAT I HAD DREAMT OF AS A CHILD TO REPRESENT MY COUNTRY AT THE MR WORLD COMPETITION. I DID EVENTUALLY END UP REPRESENTING CANADA AT MR. WORLD, BUT ONLY BECAUSE THE WINNER THE YEAR I TOOK PART WAS A FORMER MR. WORLD AND COULD NOT COMPETE FOR THAT TITLE A SECOND TIME, OR IN PLAIN ENGLISH I WAS ONLY FIRST RUNNER-UP TO MR CANADA. IT WAS A BIG LET DOWN TO SEE SOMEONE ELSE WALK AWAY WITH WHAT I HAD DREAMT ABOUT FOR YEARS BUT I LEARNED VALUABLE LESSONS FROM THOSE EXPERIENCES, AND TODAY ALTHOUGH MY VALUES AND MY LIFE IS SO DIFFERENT I DON’T HANG ON TO DAYS GONE BY. SO I GUESS THE MEANING IN MY CASE IS THOSE WERE ALL WONDERFUL EXPERIENCES AND EVENTUALLY LIFE KEPT MOVING AND I HAD TO MOVE WITH IT, I SURVIVED AND I’M SURE EVEN IF LAMBERT, BOYLE, AND PREJEAN ARE A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED AT THE INITIAL SHOCK. ONE DAY THEY’LL LOOK BACK AND SEE IT FOR WHAT IT WAS – JUST ANOTHER DAY, ONE THAT HAD A GREAT IMPACT ON THEIR LIVES AND HELP FORM WHO THEY BECOME AND I’M SURE WHATEVER ROAD THEY CHOSE THEY’LL BE WISER AND THANKFUL THAT LIFE ISN’T ALWAYS GIVEN TO US ON A SILVER PLATTER.

MY NAME IS SANDEE-GUY BREAU, AND THIS IS MY OPINION.  HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE….

          

ARE YOU HAPPY NOW TU-ANN ? LOL.
