Reynaldo’s arrival came at a time over this “news item”, American Idol’s William Hung Found Dead of Heroin Overdose… a quote from the Broken news:
Stanford’s hippy population immediately misconstrued the situation and adopted Hung’s death as a pet cause. “He was a victim of the corporate greed-machine, just like Kurt [Cobain] and Eddie [Vedder, who is actually still alive],” said one dreadlocked mourner outside the engineering department at Stanford University, where a makeshift memorial had been set up, “he just wanted to sing, and Fox decided to turn him into this joke, man, this fucking joke. They just ate him up and spit him out. Fucking Bill O’Reily. I think it’s because he was against the war.” The last comment is apparently in reference to the fact that Hung once answered “no, thank you” when asked whether he was “for or against the war in Iraq.”
The Las Vegas police released part of his suicide note. It read, “I have no reason of living . . . my art which is my importance to the best everybody laugh to . . . I make end here . . . goodbye world of cruel.”
Although Hung’s immediate family disowned him seconds after his appearance on American Idol, it is believed he has an aunt in Toledo, Ohio who will take care of funeral arrangements.
Hung was despondent upon seeing Reynaldo Lapuz belting it out at the American Idol that he overdosed on heroin ooopppps ok not true just my ad lib and not part of the broken news. Fortunately or was it unfortunately, it was satirical news debunked by Hoax Slayer which according to the article was in bad taste, to quote:
In fact, Mr Hung is alive and well. This rumour started from astory on the satirical "news" site, Broken Newz. Although it resembles a real news story, it is a complete fabrication apparently in the name of entertainment. Personally, I find this sort of satire in poor taste.
It was funny and I am glad I found Hoax Slayer article first because this “news” item looks so real and sadly it is going the rounds of forums through emails and debated to death…. Talk about death, huh.
Oh geez, this is about our new idol so going back to Reynaldo Lapuz it seems some Filipinos are not happy and felt insulted with their ego errr misplaced pride ooops I meant Filipino Pride seems to think it is embarrassing since we have great singers. Heck, what’s up with that have they loss their marbles errr sense of humor, it’s all for fun and if Reynaldo Lapuz himself was not embarrassed by it, why would you?
There were quite a few children in school that was overheard singing the original song of Reynaldo lapuz and they think he was good (I just don’t know if they meant good as in really good or as a goofball, I suspect the later though, lol) because it was catchy unlike William Hung who murdered Ricky Martin’s song. Reynaldo’s is an original composition so hopefully he will gain some following and some are swooning over him and having the urge to strangle errr hug him because he is so loveable they say. Below is the lyrics of the original composition and to watch the youtube video just click on the image or click HERE.
