Gareth Gates Autograph
Gareth Gates was
born on 12 July 1984 and was runner-up to Will Young in the TV show Pop
Idol. Unlike Will Young, who quickly took control of his own career, the
young Gareth Gates was merely a money making machine for the pop industry
and as such within a couple of years, without any meaningful musical
direction, his popularity waned and he was dropped by his record label. Rumours that the
result of Pop Idol was fixed to ensure he did not win in case he insisted on
making an acceptance speech which would have meant News at Ten being
considerably delayed have always been denied.
big-headed, Gates once stated "If Britney wants to give me a call, she
should. But she's got to make the first call."
