Here's a thought. I wonder if any of the roasters will take on the almighty "star" system in place in our culture. This youngster, at an early age, with a modicum of talent, a pretty youthful face, is snatched up by the "star makers" promoted to the hilt to turn him into a pre-teen heart throb. And not just teen girls but pre- puberty girls. Getting them all excited about this hot boy who they can long for. Makes me sick.
They trained him. They took his tender little boy ego and fed it and fed it and fed it. They surrounded him with sycophants who day after day told him he was the greatest talent to come down the street since Elvis. He grew up thinking he was invincible. Thinking he was king of the world. They kept him on a tight leash for years but as he was just a little boy he thought it was all his doing and had no real idea about the true nature of the system he was being used by.
When he got older, the leash was loosened. They let him run off the rails. Did they care? Hell no. There are always plenty more where he came from. More pretty young faces, male and female, to be presented to the foolish who follow this "star system" to the tune of billions of dollars a year.
That said, will I watch this roast. Oh, you bettcha. I just think it would be a lot better with some in depth digs at the pirates who run this youth culture.
