"I told them I was more of a character performer, but they talked me into trying to do a song that was a perfect fit for Norman Gentle called 'Bitchslap!' Then, right after we recorded it, the news came out that Simon is leaving 'Idol,' so we thought to do two versions, a censored one called 'Brit Slap!' and the original 'Bitchslap!' So now that were putting out a record, I told them Norman Gentle as a cabaret character was too limiting, so we have to go by the name 'Gentle' now, like Chris Daughtry's 'Daughtry.' In my mind, it is the only way Norman could do it!"
If you were to see Simon again, what would you say?
I would give him a hug, and then they would call security. No, I would probably tell him how funny I thought he was on the show, and thank him for giving me and "Norman Gentle" the opportunity to go as far as we did in the competition -- because let's be real, he has a lot of power there -- and because it changed my life, and now I am getting to do what makes me happiest: entertaining people.
