get out your handkerchiefs
call me cynical, but i think malan is a big phony. i don't buy that sob story about his mommy dissing his sketches for a SECOND. (ok, those crocodile tears did have me going for a second, but just ONE, before i snapped back to reality.) trust me: that guy will be back. the producers know exactly what they're doing. it was way too much of a sappy setup to have been authentic. which is why you gotta love that show--there is nothing "real" about it. (except for MK's snippy zingers and nina's icy stares.)
malan actually has a post on his blog entitled "maybe this will explain," featuring (brace yourself) the lyrics of "nature boy" (ya know, cue the heartstrings: "there was a boy...a very strange enchanted boy...") posted in english, spanish AND japanese. give me a break.
trust me. the guy is a poseur. albeit, a very talented poseur. not that that is a bad thing. c'mon. it's just freakin' television.
that said, i can't honestly believe they aufed him over whiny angela. he's a thousand times more entertaining. which is why i am predicting he will be back, daniel-franco style.
btw, cynicism apparently runs in my family. my brother insists that vincent is a plant. and not of the leafy green variety, although i'm sure vince would enjoy that. my bro says there is no way anybody is truly that whacked. i have my doubts, but am leaving all options open at this point.
