Oh, how the mighty have fallen!
Last time we checked in with Sanjaya Malakar, the American Idol talent was debuting in a delightful off-Broadway musical!
Hold on to your hairpieces because, if you thought that role was off-Broadway, his new gig will blow your mind!
These days, the former Idol finalist sings oldies in NYC subway stations for spare change! And he cut his hair, too!
An onlooker revealed:
“[Sanjaya] was singing (Sittin’ on) the Dock of the Bay. A handful of people did double takes. The guy’s still a decent singer!”
Ugh! We love Otis Redding as much as the next guy, but this is tragic!
New York is an expensive city and we don't imagine playing for handouts at the First Avenue L station is a lucrative career choice!
Hopefully Sanjaya doesn't literally become a starving artist!
