Sanjaya -- Screw You "Haters!"

4/21/2007 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sanjaya believes that his fans, not Howard Stern, kept him alive on "Idol."

Malakar, the Ponyhawked Wonder who was given the ax this week, was a constant joke for the shock jock, who urged his listeners to vote for Sanjaya to screw with the "Idol" system -- by intentionally voting for "the worst."

Malakar tells Ellen DeGeneres he doesn't believe that Stern's fans and other "haters" voted enough "to make a dent in the system." While confident, and perhaps delusional, Sanjy feels it was his own large fan base that kept the straining singer around for so long.

Sanjy also reveals, in an interview airing Monday on Ellen's talk show, that if he were to shave his hair, he'd donate it to the Britney-esque Phil Stacey -- though it's doubtful Phil would consider it a good luck charm!

I love Sanjaya. He's so confident and sweet and just seems like a really nice kid. There's no way you can hate him and if you do, you must lead a very pathetic life.

Come on, he is old news.

People felt sorry for him, I kind of
did also but I'm over that. He will
be back working flipping burgers
soon. His fans can come see him
there.

Did anyone with the show check to see if he was an illegal?

Does he even have a green card?

how sad    

Simon was right. Sanjaya is living in his own universe. The kid is delusional.
He started getting too cocky and confident for someone who has no talent at
all. I'm glad he was finally kicked off the show. He was just a big distraction
and didn't allow you to focus on the real singers, because everyone was
looking foward to how bad he was going to be each week.

Next season, they have to change the voting rules and do something similar
to Dancing with the Stars, where the judges are half the vote.

I see the haters, racists and homophobs are still hanging out in the Sanjaya links. We is it about this guy that has you so obsessed? You need to get help!
Word to Sanjaya--you RAWK little dude! What a class act you are compared to your detractors! They are not fit to lace your now-gold-plated tennis shoes.
All you goodness you heaped upon Slimon like coals of fire upon his head!
Life is Beautiful.
I hope you are around a long, long time to help us remember that.

I've had enough of the suck-fest that is American Idol. For anyone but the fantards, Sanjaya was the only reason we were watching idol. I could find better singers at the karoake contest at our local fair.
Sanjaya however--there is but one. He was the anti-establishment, anti-hate, anti-powers-that-be candidate.
Now he's gone, but we, his ardent fans, intend to ride with him all the way in he Universe of Sanjaya.
