Katharine McPhee is going to win on American Idol and it’s because she’s a girl.
AI Gender-politics update:
McPhee fan Tess Kleinhammes was upset at Cowell’s statement [casting his vote with Taylor Hicks].
“I didn’t think that was fair at all,” said the 13-year-old, who had flashed a sparkly sign in support of McPhee. “I think Katharine is better than Taylor. She’s one of my role models.”
When told about Tess’ support of her, McPhee said, “I love being a role model. It’s still a man’s world in society.”
