Star magazine recently did some research (I LOVE when tabloids do research. It’s like slightly more accurate than when I do research…) and determined that “American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks has set a record for the quickest contestant to become a diva. According to the mag:
“The minute Taylor made the top 24, he became difficult and he seemed to get worse over time.”
The source also revealed that Taylor was on the show and clearly was well-versed on the reality TV practice of being there “to win, and not to make friends.”
“He was conceited and cold,” according to the insider. “Once he was in the top eight, I think he no longer wanted to be on the show.” Some examples cited by Star: when in the top ten, Taylor didn’t want a bodyguard to accompany him to the men’s room as required and reportedly told one to “[bleep] off,” he refused to go to photo shoots, and he wouldn’t speak to others in the show’s green room.
To be fair, I also require that a bodyguard accompany me to the men’s room, but for completely different and perverted reasons.
