So the Post totally won with their item about how Tinsley Mortimer has hobbled the push to end genocide in Darfur but they go back to square 1 with their pointless post about how Adrian Grenier looks like Sanjaya Malakar.

The gist is:

Nick Tosches of Maxim magazine wrote that he was watching American Idol and he thought Sanjaya was talentless and looked like a tranny from Asia. Then later he found himself watching The Devil Wears Prada and he thought that Adrian Grenier looked like Sanjaya Malakar.

That’s it.

That’s the entire gist of the item. The editor looked at that story and thought, We’ll, that’s just freaking grand. We’re running with it. Don’t delay young Jimmy, the runner boy. Get that copy to the printing presses immediately.

What the hell kind of story is, “celebrated music writer once thought Adrian Grenier was similar looking to Sanjaya Malakar?” This had to have happened a while ago because The Devil Wears Prada and American Idol are long gone so it’s not even vaguely timely. It sounds like a bland dinner party anecdote.

Here’s a story hint New York Post – Small cat walks on chair. Now RUN with it that’s FRONT PAGE material.

My god, it really is a slow news day. To be honest, it’s sort of a slow news day, actually. It’s just that writing about how Britney looks better in Allure Magazine than she possibly could in real life is just not interesting to me. I guess I could choose to hammer out a Britney thing but I’m already so damned tired. [source]
