Sanjaya Pretends His Failed Singing Career Was an Industrial Design Project

sanjaya.jpg

Since “American Idol” reject Sanjaya has already ruined his reputation, why not take down the reputation of an innocent educational institution as well? A video is currently making the rounds that features Sanjaya claiming to be Bill Vendall, an industrial design student in the grad program at the Rhode Island School of Design. Apparently this whole off-key charade we’ve been subjected to was actually a project he calls “The Sanjaya Installation,” an assignment made as part of his regular thesis work. Pretending your entire career up until this point was fake is one thing, but pretending it’s a design project? Wrong. You can also watch the follow up video where Sanjaya admits that Will Ferrell put him up to it. We almost believe him, but if Will Ferrell had anything to do with it, wouldn’t it have been…funny?

Shouldn’t RISD take legal recourse to end this libelous scandal? Text your vote to 5537 by 5pm EST.
