PTC Tells Fox to Clarify Rumor of Howard Stern for “American Idol” Slot
Stern’s recent comments about former “American Idol” winner Fantasia show what Stern would bring to the table as a judge.
“Hey Fantasia, you're not getting little boys hard. Nobody's beating off to you. You look like you stepped out of a cartoon. Little boys want boners. They want a Britney Spears or a Rihanna. Little boys are scared that you are going to sit on them. You're out. Honey, you look like you stepped out of a Haitian earthquake. You've got to go clean up your act. Get a haircut like Rihanna if you want little boys beating off to you,” Stern said.
