Andy Warhol commented that "everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame." In the case of American Idol singer and that term is used very loosely in the case of Sanjaya Malakar, his 15 minutes of fame were over a long time ago. At least they should have been. How and why he's still around is a mystery. Like Samson his strength appears to be in his hair. Actually upon reflection, its non-style, non-descript. It's just...there growing on top of his head.

So last night in order to keep viewers interested in his performances, he tried something new. Not exactly new because females have been wearing pony tails since the 50's and 60's. However, when a male and one that's part of such a high visibility show as AI decides to go "pony tail/mohawk-y" - a person has to wonder who his "advisers" are. Not one pony tail mind you but at least seven...maybe more (who counts!) all in a row in kind of mohawk mini-ponies, one can only assume that it is Sanjayas attempt to look - well - macho. Who's his hairdresser? The Texas Chain Saw Massacre-er?

Gimme a break!

We can only hope that this new look will really be the icing on the cake and he will become a distant memory. If not - who knows what he'll turn into next. Michael Jackson?
