American Idol hopeful found dead!


What price will people pay for 5 minutes of so called fame. Do you think it is right to encourage people with little or no talent to take part on TV talent programme’s?.

What sort of society are we and how far will producers go to make money for themselves?

The Story:

Paula Goodspeed, the American Idol contestant found dead outside Paula Abdul’s home, was left devastated when Simon Cowell mocked her audition.

Cowell humiliated Paula Goodspeed by laughing at her braces as she attempted to impress the judging panel.

“I don’t think any artist on earth could sing with that much metal in your mouth. You have so much metal in your mouth,” he said.

The 30-year-old is believed to have committed suicide by taking an overdose in her car outside Abdul’s Los Angeles home.

Goodspeed reportedly had a history of mental illness and her death has raised the question of whether television talent shows are unnecessarily cruel to vulnerable performers.

What do you think?
