David Archuleta Is Daddy’s Boy, All Right

David Archuleta is one loyal son. The 17-year-old American Idol second-placer and human Monchhichi could have just bought his dad, Jeff, a tie for Father’s Day. Instead, the kid attempted once again to convince the world that his pop isn’t an obvious pain in the ass.

The devoutly Mormon Archuleta’s MySpace blog (current mood: “blessed”) is all about drumming up the love for dad.

“Today we’re having some more meetings on my own career lol,” the budding superstar reveals. “Oh, and by the way, thanks everyone for wishing my dad a happy Father’s Day. He’s been great so I’m glad you guys took time to send him your messages.”

Nice try, Dave. But when your father is so annoying even Simon Cowell looks reasonable in comparison, no amount of turd polish will gloss over the truth.
