KSTU (via MJ’s Blog) is reporting that last year’s American Idol’s runner up, David Archuleta’s father plead no contest today for soliciting a prostitute at a Midvale, Ut massage parlor back in January. Jeff Archuleta’s lawyer said he was at the wrong place at the wrong time when police raided the parlor for not having a business license but once inside they realized that prostitution was taking place there. He was the only client in the establishment at the time. His lawyer says that he was there for a back problem, but the Midvale police say he had admitted to receiving sexual gratification at the time.
David’s father reportedly plead no contest because he didn’t want the negative publicity to affect his son’s career. With the plea he was cited with a Class B misdemeanor, soliciting prostitution and was fined $582.
Jeff Archuleta was rumored to being an overbearing stage dad when his son was on the show. Some reports even claimed that American Idol wanted to ban him from the show. Something both parties denied.
I am beginning to think it is mandatory that if you were on American Idol and you release a CD, that it has to have the worst cover on the market. I don't even remember Michael Johns, but looking at the CD I forget him again. Seriously that is so bad even the '70s wouldn't want it.
Oh and I finally realized not to listen to the samples on Amazon, because those are seconds I will never get back in my life.
Jason Castro released his own version of White Christmas and I am not sure what is worst the album cover or the cover of the song. Obviously I am not the only one who thinks the song is worth nothing because Amazon is letting people download it for free and even that is too much for the song. Billy Idol's version of White Christmas was more trippier than the American Idol loser's version.
David Cook is proving that he so deserved to win American Idol, because he truly is an Idol!!! According to Star Magazine his biggest fan 7 year old Lindsey Rose was diagnosed with leukemia last Christmas, and she started a friendship with him when he was vying for the title. In fact the orange bracelet he was wearing was for her. After the finale he contacted her and said when he was Tampa he would visit her.
That day arrived on Aug. 21, and squeals of delight mingled with tears of joy as big-hearted David, 25, kept his promise to Lindsey Rose, treating her like a little princess during a special day together. "From the moment we arrived, David grabbed Lindsey by the hand and the two were inseparable," her father Charley Belcher, a feature reporter for Fox WTVT Channel 13 in Tampa, tells Star. "They are friends forever."
Wow, what an amazing guy. I knew he deserved to wiin, but he is proving to the doubters why he won American Idol 7!!!
Chris Sligh (remember him from American 6?) posted this great story about David Cook that I had to share it with y'all.The true winner was named the American Idol this year! Good for David Cook for not forgetting his old Idols!
A week after announcing that David Cook's CD is coming out this fall, RCA Records put the American Idol's CD up for pre-order on Amazon even though there is no release date. At first glance it sounds like a bad idea, but considering the album is already #2 on the Amazon charts…maybe it wasn't!!! I am so pre-ordering this because I can't wait to hear how it turns out!
