American Idol 4‘s Mario Vazquez is still all over the news, almost two weeks after quitting. First, FOX 411 reports that the CD featuring Mario’s vocals, Worlds of Change, “is quickly being repackaged and re-merchandised to more prominently feature Vazquez’s newfound celebrity.” Meanwhile, Page SixSixSix had two Mario-related reports last week: the first said that Mario “left Idol because he has already been offered a very enticing record contract by none other than P. DIDDY!” In its second report, Page SixSixSix reported that Mario is indeed gay and his “boyfriend is a hairdresser.” The site reports the alleged boyfriend’s name and place of business, which prompted one commenter to say, “printing info on his boyfriend’s place of work is too much.”
