As my friend Rick says: "It used to be that you had to be famous to get on TV, but now you have to get on TV to get famous."
So now FANTASIA, winner of AMERICAN IDOL, is going to play the LEAD in "The Color Purple"
Not having any broadway experience before, but just being FAMOUS gets her the job, and gets the seats filled.
That's cool- she sings as well as hell.
Sounds like I'd better stop auditioning and better go get famous first!
