Why Do You Want To Be An AMERICAN IDOL
I want to be an AMERICAN IDOL because I have lost both of my parents at a young age, grew up on the streets of L.A. literally by myself, been broker than broke and still I keep keepin' on, livin' and dreamin' for the love of music.
Most Embarrassing Moment
I got booed in Columbia, SC at their own "Apollo" show because the girls there didn't like me.
Favorite Judge? Why?
Simon, because he will tell you your strong points as well as your weak points, and I respect him for that.
Least Favorite Judge? Why?
Paula, because she's so unpredictable. One day she likes you, the next she doesn't.
Anything You Would Not Change To Become The American Idol
Yes. I will not conform to being half naked onstage to get anyone's attention. If you don't like what you see and hear, that's fine.
