Of all the interesting characters we met on last night’s American Idol season premiere, no one made a bigger impression than Katrina Darrell. Technique, enthusiasm, disability, psychosis—none of these compare to the timeless appeal of the bikini. While Darrell’s voice wasn’t atrocious, it was her choice of attire (or lack thereof) that moved Simon and Randy to send her to Hollywood. All Kara or Paula could do was seethe.
Unsurprisingly, this isn’t the first time Darrell has worn a bikini in public, as revealed by this video of “model/singer” Darrell posing at a photo shoot last year. Love her body or hate her shameless self-exploitation, we haven’t seen the last of Katrina Darrell…or her bikini.
