American Idol's own rockin' robin, Megan Joy, took to the phones on Wednesday to talk about her elimination, the caw-ing, and her comments about not caring what Simon said. She said she woke up on Wednesday "feeling like I was going to go home no matter what" and decided to make the most of her last few Idol moments because part of her was ready to leave the show and go home to her son. Here are highlights:
On her "I love you, Simon, but I just don't care" comment: "I cared about the competition — I didn't want people to misunderstand me not caring. I just didn't care that Simon didn't like my songs."
- On the caw-ing: "I love birds and bird noises. I just decided that if I'm going out, I'm going out with a bang. I'm just going to be myself. So I flew the whole time. . . . [The other contestants] said, 'Meg, if you go tonight, we're gonna caw for you, we're gonna support you,' so I was like, 'Don't you forget to caw.'"
- On her brother yelling at Kara: "I'm always proud of my brother. He's my boy, and he's like me — he just can't help but be himself. I wasn't surprised at all that he did it. It just cracks me up. I was pleased that Kara ended up taking it lightheartedly. . . . I think she was kind of like, 'How dare you? Who do you think you are?' And then she was like, 'Wait, who are you?' and he was like, 'Her brother!' and she was like, 'Oh, I see.'"
- On the biggest lesson she learned from Idol: "I learned that there's always gonna be negative people — haters if you will — trying to bring you down, but you've just got to forget about that and move past it always."
