Berkley student William Hung: “It’s not like I’m a horrible singer that can’t sing.”
American Idol 3 auditioner William Hung “has become UC Berkeley’ newest celebrity.” Berkley’s Daily Cal talks to him, and William says the judges made the correct choice: “To an extent, they’re right. I don’t think I should have made it to Hollywood.” He also says he “seriously hadn’t planned” to go to Hollywood. However, he’s apparently still delusional, or still acting: “I feel the producers really exploited my lack of talent at this time. I looked like an idiot up there. I want to be good, not something that people will laugh at.”
