Nick Boddington on Lazaro Arbos: So Many Excuses, So Little Respect

More evidence that the Lazaro Arbos won’t be winning any congeniality prizes from his fellow season 12 American Idols!

Nick Boddington, who competed in the Top 20 Sudden Death round. But lost out to the likes of Lazaro and his Mega Backstory, congratulates Michael Slezak for his winning post-boot interview with Lazaro for TV

At least Michael is receiving some props from Nick. Unlike this sweet little message from Lazaro’s Best Friend, Amber Holcomb, whom Lazaro is urging his orphaned fans to support:

That was after Michael snarked on the Idol stylists or whoever decided the singer should wear a particularly ugly pair of 80’s style jeans.

Obviously, since Amber is Lazaro’s Best Friend Forevah, she couldn’t be the unnamed female Laz accused of being so cray cray to win Idol, she thinks she’s playing in the Hunger Games

No wonder some Idols were thrilled Lazaro was eliminated.

Lazaro can’t resist mocking Idol personnel. Here, in a chat with Extra, Lazaro pretends not to know mentor, Jimmy Iovine, because the singer is presently working with unnamed people who are way more talented (!!!) (at about the 9:40 mark)

And here, in an interview with TV Guide,  he mocks judge, Mariah Carey’s, tendency to ramble on and on and on. While we all have mocked Mimi for that, his tone here has more than a whiff of butthurt. He also can’t wrap his head around why the judges didn’t like his mediocre performance of “We Are The Champions.” delusional. (Check it out at the 4:28 mark.)

Not only does Lazaro believe Mariah talks to much because she wants to be on TV, he also  believes she and the other judges have made “horrible” records.

Oh, American Idol 12. We won’t soon forget you. No matter how hard we try.
