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.
