Thumbsucking Advocate Gives Mandisa Thumbs-Down

EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – American Idol castoff Mandisa admits she’s a recovered thumbsucker and that’s getting a thumbs-down from one unrepentant adult thumb-sucking enthusiast.

Mandisa was a big thumbsucker until five years ago and thinks it affected her teeth, though not her singing voice. However, she now claims she’s “been delivered” from the habit.

However, Harvey Miller, who runs a website called, is giving Mandisa the finger for not keeping her hand in it.

Miller says thumbsucking is a great way to “reduce tension,” but, he admits, “Unfortunately, people not grossly affected by thumb-sucking find they need to give it up for social reasons.”

Luckily for Miller, he doesn’t think Mandisa’s admission will deter other adults from the joys of adult thumbsucking and figures it’s because the whole issue is “old hat.”
