‘American Idol’ castoff Chris Sligh updated a blog posting that many took as critical of fellow ‘Idol’ castoff Sanjaya Malakar. “My recent blog post about Sanjaya seemed to get a lot of people up in arms,” Sligh writes at frommymindtoyoureyes. “Though the post is now posted all over the internet, I have decided to remove it from here and I will say this: my intent was never to say anything disrespectful about Sanjaya – those of you who have said it: you are right, I shouldn’t have said that he was annoying…it was poor taste on my part. I also shouldn’t have pointed out my opinion of his voice, though let’s get this straight I NEVER said anything negative about his voice. Sanjaya made the top 24 out of over 100,000 people, and I made it clear that I always thought he deserved to be there. Me saying that 23 people had better voices is in no way negative – negative would’ve been to say that Sanjaya sucks and he can’t carry a tune (I do not think either of those things, I am making a point). However, it was in bad taste and I should’ve known that it would be spun as me being negative, and I was naive to think any differently. So I take full responsibility and apologize sincerely for the original post.”
