Sometimes It's So Easy I'm Ashamed of Myself 

Ryan Seacrest Supports Banned Students [AP]

Six middle school boys who were banned from a class portrait for refusing to cover up their pink T-shirts have gained the support of fashionable "American Idol" host Ryan Seacrest.

Ha ha aha , Ryan Seacrest fashionable? Hello, blond tips were soooo 4 years ago and even then they were lame.

Ensign Middle School principal Edward Wong pulled the boys from their eighth grade class portrait last week because he feared the color could be associated with gang-affiliated "dance crews," which hold all-night dance contests and raves.

"Dance Crews" are very dangerous. The children might pull a muscle dancing. Also, remember West Side Story? Didn't someone die in that or something? Wait, that was a musical and not real life? Well....whatever, dance crews are dangerous!

The boys denied being crew members and said they wore the shirts, which students described as "Easter pink," to stand out in the photo.

I remember when I was 14, the boys often wore pastels to stand out. I knew this one guy who really wanted to stand out, so he wore a dress to school. And he did stand out. And then the jocks beat him up.

Seacrest, who also hosts the TV show "On-Air with Ryan Seacrest" and the radio countdown "American Top 40," said Tuesday he got involved because a student was quoted in a local newspaper as saying pink was popular among teens because Seacrest often wore it.

My God, what is happening to the children of America? It is bad enough that they witness the vulgarity and violence on MTV. But now, with programs like American Idol, the children are so exposed to bad fashion that they actually try and imitate it. That is just irresponsible.

"I'm standing up and saying it's OK to stand out because I am the 'Pink Piper,'" Seacrest told a caller.

For several years Ryan Seacrest has been trying to adopt the nickname "Pink Diddy" but it has yet to catch on.
