Okay. I have a confession to make.
I have to admit that, even though I don’t have television (gasp!) I do occasionally go on Youtube and watch clips from the talent reality shows, like America’s Got Talent or Britain’s Got Talent or American Idol. I love them because sometimes, something totally unexpected and amazing can happen, completely out of the blue. This was one of those clips for me, and it’s NOT a normal “motivational moment” clip. I’ll explain after the video!
So this girl comes out, dressed in pink latex to get attention, but not for the reason anyone else thinks. Her goal is NOT to get to Vegas or participate in any more reality shows, but to do something very specific: to meet Howard Stern. The REASON she is my hero is that she set a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT goal than anyone expected, AND SHE DID IT! She just dressed up in something crazy and came up with enough of a “talent” to get an audition, because she knew that’s all she needed. She IGNORED the people who said she wasn’t good enough, because they were assuming the obvious, without finding out what her real goal was. And she was 100% successful in her real goal. I may question her general sanity and taste in men, but she did what she needed to get what she wanted, without hurting or demeaning herself or anyone else. And I think THAT’S awesome!
PS Yes, I know some people may accuse her of demeaning herself by pouring herself into that pink latex dress, but I see it as a costume for the character she portrayed to get on the show. I don’t think she took anything about that audition seriously other than meeting Howard Stern. Plus, kudos to her for having the ladyballs to wear latex in public while weighing more than 98 pounds!
