Remember that AI contestant who decided to withdraw from the competition after making it into the final 12? It all seemed a little calculated but Mario could not tell us his master plans because of the contracts he signed away his life on for AI. He has now reportedly signed a record deal with Clive Davis! That's huge for Mario. Clive has worked with Whitney, Alicia, Janis Joplin, and Diddy (that's right, no P). And according to Tara Reid who happened to run into Clive last week on her show, he is "The Biggest Legend In The World."
Mario was also lucky enough to sign with manager Arnold Steifel who has worked with the likes of Rod Stewart for over 30 years. Looks like Mario is about to make a huge comeback - but I think I'm already over him. Remember all those reports of him getting cozy with Demi and trying really hard to hang with the Simpsons? We'll see.
