Siobhan Magnus' future could be "wicked gory" -- and she'd be fine with that.
In a Thursday conference call, "American Idol" castoff Magnus told reporters she'd love to star in a "wicked gory" horror film one day. She'd also like to do musicals like "Phantom of the Opera" or "Jesus Christ Superstar."
Magnus also addressed the token high note that defined her stint on "Idol." She discovered the note while singing a Kelly Clarkson song in the shower. She said she used the note while singing Pink Floyd's "Great Gig in the Sky" and won a battle of the bands competition.
Magnus' big notes and strong personality made many fans compare her to Adam Lambert, last season's "Idol" runner-up. While discussing the parallels, Magnus said, "It was wicked flattering being compared to him."
The singer's musical tastes range from Rob Zombie to Hanson. She said while on "Idol," she received letters from young girls praising her individuality.
"I'm not going to change to please other people," Magnus told reporters.
She looks forward to performing "all over the place, for whoever wants to hear me scream."
You've got to hand it to her: Magnus was polarizing, but she definitely added an element of unpredictability to this season of "Idol." Even fans who hated her voice loved her fashion choices.
