I don't understand why they keep on with this stupid ad campaign.  Every time one of these commercials comes on, it makes me cringe.  Maybe one of the horses will step on him and put him out of everyone's misery.

It confused me that Justin Guarini was compared to Prince in his portrayal of Lil Sweet. Personally, I don't see it. I certainly find the commercials annoying, although I keep reminding myself that I'm "not in the target audience."

"Step" wasn't exactly the verb I had in mind. Tongue

Prince is the first thing that I thought of when they started this ad campaign.  I think that it's more of a looks thing, than how he acts.  I was never a Prince fan, and maybe that's part of why I find these commercials particularly annoying.

Part of the reason J 'Da Weenie' didn't win on Idol is he never really showed a distinct personality..hence this derivative take on MJ, Prince and maybe even Sylvester

None of whom I ever had much use for.  And when I think of all the musicians who died last year, Prince is always an afterthought---"And Oh, yeah---Prince died, too".

Justin just looked crazy to me, like he could portray a creepy, psychopath, serial killer . In theory, that had to be one of the reasons he lost American Idol. Kelly on the other had was pretty, had the innocent, clean cut, all American girl next door look, and had a nice singing voice. It's not hard to see why she won.
Using nuclear weapons on problem people is not the answer, you psychopath!

Also, Keith Richards is a damn cockroach outliving everybody! LOL

I always thought Little Sweet looked like something cooked up in Dr. Mephisto's lab using the combined DNA of Prince and Steven Tyler.

Some years ago when asked what it was like to be the greatest guitar player in history, Eric Clapton replied "I don't know, ask Prince."

Like his music or not, Prince was a phenomenal guitar player and deserves every bit of the respect that was paid him both before and after his death.

If there's any doubt, check out the YouTube video of him at a George Harrison tribute concert playing While My Guitar Gently Weeps with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

He just blew everyone away.

Hendrix's ghost was somewhere having an orgasm.

Right? I mean, back when he was on "Idol," he was the spitting image of Sideshow Bob from "The Simpsons." LOL

So this is the American Idol Justin to Kelly guy? And there is supposed to be some connection to Prince here?? Yikes. Loved Prince, at least in the mid 80s.

Triple J, my God, just look at Justin's creepy looking face in the pic you posted. *Shudders* And yes, he does look like Sideshow Bob in that side by side pics you posted! LOL!

Yep, he was fodder for many keyboard warriors that year. Wink
