The Sunday Fan Special: Cringeworthy musings about Danny Gokey

July 12, 2009

Gokey fans don’t seem to do as much minor photo editing / GIF creation / as do those Lambert fans. A lot of their work seems to be those message board signatures, Blingees, et al.

But come on! Why are you making signatures featuring his DECEASED WIFE??? Who are you people?

Danny and Sophia Gokey message board signature

They also seem to uncover A LOT of pre-Idol photos of the guy, which are probably posted on their fan boards by unscrupulous family members, maybe one of those cousins-by-marriage, perhaps?

Maybe these were posted on a public profile, who knows. But they’re getting really excited about some photos found maybe on a friend or family member’s public social networking profile? No clue. Anyway…

Danny Gokey -- Lifeguard

However, we’ll come back to those. Let’s truly begin the festivities with an LOLGokey, shall we?

An LOLGokey?

And some commentary…

SOTD Salt n Pepa “Shoop”
Brother wanna thank ya momma for a butt like that *chair dance*


I’ve rarely come across a man that wears jeans quite so well as one Mr Gokey.
Plus that red shirt he’s sporting with the short sleeves and the scandalous arm candy? Really should come with some sort of health warning.

Red shirt, you ask? She was talking about this photo (and others) taken during a recent performance:

Danny Gokey in Portland (American Idol Tour)

In response to some of Gokey’s recent Tour performances, his fans are going a bit crazy. It seems he’s been straddling mic stands (Although this does not constitute “pole dancing”, sorry, ladies. It is a mic stand. Not a pole.) and at one point ripped off his shirt?

You may remember DCFreak. She is an expert Gokeyologist.

Y’know…at first I felt a little guilty posting in this thread…Danny being in love with his wife still, and being a church boy and all that…but we’ve been getting bolder and bolder lately, and Danny is totally asking for it, with his flirty comments on twitter, his chains, his shirt-removing onstage, his pole-dancing, his sexy moves, and his ~suggestive~ funny twitter photo. He probably lurks here and loves every second of it! As his confidence as a performer grows, I think he’s begnning to realize that he’s good looking and sexy. I don’t think he thought he was very sexy 6 months ago when we first saw him. But he is SO WRONG! The boy’s been bringing the sexy in a big way, and we’re just responding in kind.

Anyway, I have no idea how this woman found these vacation photos…taken nearly a year ago. I’m sure the guy needed a vacation at that point, ya know, but um…how the hell did they end up in the hands of his fans? Because then they are put out there for everyone to see…including assholes like me.

Yes, all of us haters out there. Well, we won’t be able to control ourselves when we look at these in the eyes of a rabid Gokey fan.

He has just the right amount of chest hair. His build is perfect here. Not too buff and built, a little soft, but very, very nice.
I love the way his arms look now, but if he took his shirt off, I’m afraid he might be getting a six-pack now, and me no likey Danny with a six pack.

The haters? They’ll probably drool all over their keyboard, and then upload and print them to stare at before bed every night or even make a screensaver that they’ll change back to a KRADAM one when their Danny-hating friends come over.

Or if their friends catch them with the pictures, they’ll just tell them they’re making a dartboard.

I don’t know if it exactly does the guy a service when you’re posting DATED photos of him kicking it shirtless on vacation (and/or church outing?) just so you can drool all over his guns and chest hair. (And plus…since they are dated, there are going to be a lot of people who will look at these in a certain negative context.)

Danny Gokey on vacation

I have no idea where they found these. But they like to talk about his arms a lot, you know…the arm porn.

Danny Gokey is shirtless and on vacation

Uh…again with the chest hair?

These were taken last summer, around the time he auditioned.
He looks yummy and has the perfect amount of chest hair.

Yes, yes. All well and good. Nothing I haven’t heard before come out of you people, however…I’m still stuck on something…

At what show did this man rip off his shirt on stage? And why? And to what song?

    That’s his family in the pictures but what do you care? For some strange reason, you all can’t stand it because he gets so much attention. What is it jealousy? Are you obsessed with Danny? Bored with Adam? I hope not! Please go back to Adam and we’ll take care of Danny!

    You clearly don’t understand the hotness of Danny Gokey! Believe me, women who are obsessed with Danny do not even notice if there are other people in the photos! We only have eyes for Danny. Doesn’t matter if it’s a pic with friends, idol contestants, fans, Danny is all we see. We don’t care when the pics were taken – we even find his baby pictures fascinating because they show the promise of things to come!

    No, Danny never took his shirt off during a performance, but we have seen his chest hairs peaking out from just above his shirt and it is enough to push our imaginations into overdrive. The pole vs the mic stand? You would have to be an insider to realize why we continue to refer to his mic stand as a pole – because we are followers of all things Danny, we know of a certain story involving pole dancing and Danny. The story alone was fantasy inducing and when we then see videos of Danny straddling a mic stand and it’s as if the story and our fantasies came to life.

    Since you just don’t get how hot, scrumptious, delicious and mind blowing Danny is to us, you should just give up writing about him and just write about your litlle fantasies invlolving Adam and Kris.

    Selena, Gokey is hot?
    You could have fooled me. LOL
    Besides, he can’t sing or dance and should have been bounced out long before he did.

    You Danny haters are so incredibly ridiculous. Who the heck spends a lot of their time lurking on a Danny fan forum, if they hate him? I think that a lot of you guys secretly have crushes on Danny and that is why you spend as much time ripping into him/talking about him like you do. You know you have crushes on him, just admit it already.

    I bet you guys were drooling over his shirtless pic, or at least thinking to yourselves, “Dang he looks good.” You’re probably drooling over his guns, which have gotten much, much bigger, as evidenced by his performance videos on tour. Danny has been working out and that is pretty apparent. And yes I know that you are probably going to be looking at his performance videos on tour more, to check out his guns and body. And BTW I don’t believe there is a video of him ripping off his shirt, so you haters are going to be disappointed when you go looking for that video and don’t find it.

    But I’m sure you wish you could find it, because you have an attraction to Danny.You are infatuated with him. You haters put Danny in the spotlight more than his fans do. You give him more buzz than his fans do. You are very obsessed with him in a creepy way might I add.

    You guys are ridiculous. You really are. Danny doesn’t even think about you guys, he will never even know your names. yet you spend a lot of your time, obsessing over him. You’re like the little kid that has a crush on another kid, but expresses their feelings by teasing their secret crush. I know how you guys are. You’re not fooling me.

    Grow up and leave Danny alone.

    Wow Danny haters amaze me. All you can do is talk bad about the guy… One thing is true. He is an amazing singer and you guys cant stand that, so ya’ll have to take about everything else and take it way out of proportion. Disgusting. Get a life haters. Talk about the people you do like instead of hating.

    You haters need to look at the date on the pictures – I believe that would’ve been Sophia’s birthday, and they were probably trying to help him through the day by taking him out and celebrating her life. Why is that an aweful thing?

      I think the guy probably needed a vacation, or to get out of the house, at that point.

      But some people are going to think these look bad, especially those who think he has pushed the widower issue a bit too much. I’m not judging, however, personally, I just don’t really agree with fans of his making gifts or anything else involving her. It’s a bit strange. Maybe they feel he’s encouraged it. Maybe he has, I don’t know. It’s just weird.

        So you’re not judging him, but you put these pictures which were posted on a Danny fan forum, on your cite so that other Danny haters could judge and dehumanize him, and call him things like pimp?

        To be honest, I think that you were probably thrilled to find a picture of Danny shirtless, and you posted these pictures of him, because you wanted people over here to bash and dehumanize Danny for them. Like people have been doing to him all season long.

        I sincerely hope that no other person that is on Idol in the future gets treated as awfully and gets degraded, criticized and dehumanized as much as Danny has this season. The way that the Danny haters have treated him this season is disgusting.

    It still seems weird to me that you spend so much time on something you hate. I remember this site from last year and thought it strange then. There are things I really can’t stand, and I try to spend zero time even thinking about them. So it’s really hard to understand the mentality that makes someone put a lot of energy into something they hate. Is it because there is nothing they love or enjoy in their lives to spend the time on? I can only think that’s it. Or it’s the bully-in-the-schoolyard syndrome. You feel so bad about yourself so you can only increase your feeling of self-worth by putting down others. Whatever, I hope by next AI season, you’ve found something that you love so you can leave the Idol fans in peace.

    Apparently, you guys have nothing better to do! Seriously, so what if his pictures are posted on facebook? Why do you feel the need to rip them apart? I am a Danny fan and have met him and he is a great person! There are some idols this year that I am not really a fan of, but I will not go hack pictures and start ripping on their life….especially their pre-idol life. What they do in their personal lives is their business, not ours. I know about the freedoms to speak your mind and all, but please think before you feel the need to rip on someone of whom you don’t even know or don’t like. It’s just not right! Thank you!

    You haters are pathetic! Just because someone is grieving doesn’t mean they spend every minute crying; and the man has good friends who love him and cheer him up.
    And as far as drooling over an idol; its no worse for this guy than any other idol. I read sappy, drooly comments all the time over Adam from poor women who are in denial, or don’t care he’s gay. And the mooning over Kris. And all kinds of pre-idol pictures of Adam too. Its nothing unique to Danny fans. Get over yourselves.

    When did his wife die ? He has an interesting way of grieving.

  15. July 12, 2009 8:40 pm

    Who is the woman in the pix? Was she sucking him better to ease the pain of losing his cash cow only a few weeks before?

    Interesting, usually people in mourning don’t party so much or smile so much.

    Where is Danny’s wedding ring? Oh look, he doesn’t have it on.

    Poor broken up Danny, partying shirtless one month after his wifes tragic death…. but lo and behold he put it back on just in time to go to AI auditions and “cry” over his wife.

    Douchebag. Fake. Pimp. Loser.

    How long had Sophia been dead when these pics were taken – 6 weeks?

    He is a disgusting loser and a big, fat LIAR. Grieving widower my ass.

      And his fans wonder why he has haters? And they go around posting things like that…

      I’m now trying to find the video where he rips off his shirt, b/c that’s just…

      Ok…someone posted video of a girl presenting him with a framed photo she drew of him and his dead wife.

      I just find all of that in bad taste. Can’t help it, but I do.
