Sanjaya: Human Art Project

5/22/2007 3:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comIs Sanjaya Malakar really who he says he is ... or is he really an art school student pretending to be an "Idol" wannabe?

TMZ received a hilarious video of Sanjaya explaining that his "real" name is Bill Vendall, and that he is an art student at the Rhode Island School of Design. He "created" Sanjaya as part of his thesis, explaining, "The character was part of a larger art installation." That still doesn't justify the hair!

Sanjaya (or is it Bill?) also declares that you haven't seen the last of him, saying, "I might pop up on your favorite situation comedy. I might run for President. I might show up as you." Oooooooh, scary.

If it's true...too funny! AI has been had...but don't they do background checks on these people? or just a criminal record search?

Anyway, if not...gotta at least give the boy credit for stretching his 15 minutes in such a creative way!!

That would be so funny if it was true. AI is washed up now, reality television is general has become washed up. Hopefully this will be the last season, though they will probably try to squeeze one more out of it.
