Sanjaya's Biggest Fan is Back

Sanjaya's Biggest Fan is Back

Ferl‘s 15 minutes of fame continues!

Sanjaya‘s biggest fan, aka Ashley Ferl, is riding out her 15 minutes of fame for as long as she can. The 13-year-old posed for cameras in an exclusive photoshoot in New York City last week.

While in Los Angeles this week before, Ferl made it to a taping of American Idol and couldn’t hold back the tears during Sanjaya Malakar‘s rock-out performance of The Kinks‘ “You Really Got Me.”

When Idol producers noticed the dramatic waterworks, they invited the young fan back to the results show, where she got got to meet all of the Idols.

“I got all their autographs,” she enthused. “I got earrings from Paula Abdul. They’re like hearts.”

Ashley‘s favorite contestant from season 4? Fran Drescher double Mikalah Gordon.

I hope they invite Ferl back to the finale when Sanjaya performs!

    Where are her parents? Knock some sense into this kid!

    I can’t believe her parents let her react like that.

    Interviewer: You know, a lot of people don’t think he’s that good. What do you say to them?
    Crazy kid: I just like, say they’re wrong or just ignore them.

    Sanjaya’s followers annoy the shiet out of me.

    um, doesn’t she have a paper to write, some sort of project to do? next.

  • [Fug Face Man!ston]

    The odd thing is this girl cried for a few performances, but sangaya is the only one people are talking about, i wonder why.

    people can get publicity for anything nowadays

  • Hubbell

    This girl is not like any 13 year old girl I know.

  • Elizabeth

    Get a life!

  • Ohhh snap

    She probably votes a million time for him. UGH!

  • b

    this cry baby bitch needs to go back to school. when i was thirteen i didnt know any one that acted like that. does she have a problem or something. i would be embarassed if that was my kid!!! i can understand maybe crying one time for a real star, not sinjin. grow up u little twit!!!

  • Ann

    So that’s Sanjaya’s real fanbase…slightly special teenagers. Got it.

  • AndrĂ©

    poor sad little girl
    Sanjaya is not adorable at all.

  • Burpie

    I’m embarrased for her. It’s ridiculous how she wept for a guy that’s not even a real star, and it’s even more ridiculous how she’s gaining publicity for it.

  • MudRocks

    lol I love the awesome assumption that he’ll make it to the Finale!!! LOL nice!

  • Kay

    Crying for the Beatles, OK, I understand. I would’ve been really thrilled (not crying, though) if I’d met John or Paul when they were young and incredibly hot. They are geniuses. But Sanjaya!! What’s wrong with the world?

  • Kay

    And I fucking love her shoes. Really, I’m embarassed for the whole humanity now.

  • samantha

    Why do people take American Idol so SERIOUSLY? So what if the kid liked Sanjaya big deal. And why wouldn’t she ride out her 15 minutes of fame. She’s a smart kid.

  • sheila

    I wanted to punch a hole through the t.v when I saw her crying… She looked so stupid and I know it is not really nice to make fun of lil kids but if I were the girl sitting next to her I would have bitch slapped the lil freak…

  • bdj

    Who knew crying on TV could lead to all this 15 minutes of fame and free merchandise. I thought I was Sanyaya biggest fan. Oh well, I will continue to cry everytime he sings in my living room.

  • bdj

    Sorry Sanjaya, I guess it would help if I spelled your name correctly.

  • Summer

    Why do people have to be so angry and bitter all the time just laugh with them for god’s sake

  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    I heart her.

    It is the most hilarious thing in the world to see her crying over Sanjaya. And the kicker is : she cried at EVERY performance (even for a girl, Melinda). Awesome!

  • Jessica

    PEOPLE!!!!!! WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM!?!?!?!?!? WHAT DID SANJAYA EVER DO TO YOU!?!?!?!?!?!? DO YOU HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN TO SAY MEAN THINGS ABOUT A 17 YEAR OLD BOY?!?!?!?!?!?!? HONESTLY, THE REASON YOU DON’T LIKE SANJAYA, IS THE FACT THAT GIRLS LIKE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And not just 10 year olds! I’m 15, and I think he is the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen! By the way, is that little girl really 13????????????? She looks about 10!
