David Archuleta Walks Into a Gay Bar, Chaos Ensues

David Archuleta Walks Into a Gay Bar, Chaos Ensues-photo

David Archuleta would very much like his fans to know: Don't worry, he's totally into the ladies. American Idol runner-up Archuleta sent shock waves through the nation this week when it was reported that he had visited New York gay nightclub Club 57 over the weekend, leaving many to wonder if he was preparing to complete the trifecta set up by Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert before him. 

But, as is usually the case with Archuletta, there's a perfectly innocent explanation for it all, so just calm down, everybody. Turns out Archie was just lending support to a buddy, Filipina "Pyramid" singer Charice Pempengco. The misunderstanding did, however, lead to a series of comically awkward posts on Archuleta's Twitter account as he struggled to explain the situation. At first Archuleta clarified,

"Mental note to self: always ask where before you go! Wasn't my kind of place lol, and I had no clue! I guess you live and learn. The upside was that Charice was awesome, and she has an incredible voice. Hope that clears things up! Been seeing some of the tweets.. sheesh!"

Then, realizing that his words might be construed as not particularly friendly to the homosexual community, Archie played the "some of my best friends are gay" card:

"I have friends who are gay, and they're great people. Whether they're gay or not doesn't change how I think of them. I have nothing against anyone, I'm sorry if that's how it came across. I'm just not into the partying scene lol."

LOL indeed. It seems that being in the wrong place at the wrong time is a hereditary disposition for the Archuleta men.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be on the net the simplest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as other folks consider issues that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

    crabs are like that. sadly, there are lots of crabs in my country. Charice-haters will try to bring her down directly or indirectly. even if that means bringing down DA.

    Your article gave me some seriouly needed laughs. What with the gay community getting all bent out of shape over his "series of comically awkward posts". Relax, people. David is harmless.

    He needed to break rules on no tweeting on Sunday because thousands of fans all over the world tweeted weird messages. Some of them are Filipinos who are not fans of Charice. Putting him in the same category as his dad is non-sense. He is not arrested. Leave this boy alone. Gzzz... Nobody was making the comparison seriously --- it's a joke.

    I just feel bad for David. He is only 19 years old. Most 19 year olds don't have to deal with a lot of the things he has to deal with, but that is the price of fame. I think he he has a heart of gold and loves everyone so I wouldn't take his tweets the wrong way!

    expressing support to a friend is no crime.. being in gay club should not be a big deal. give the kid a break... love david archuleta from the 1st day i laid eyes on him. he's such a sweet guy and doesn't deserve to be subject of any speculation. well, he took everything in stride. that's the way to go, archie... love you... i will continue being your biggest fan....LOL

    There's absolutely nothing wrong with what David has done, and people are making a mountain out of a mole hill....I would've worded things exactly the same way, with no regrets whatsoever. And he does not owe anyone an explanation, because he hasn't done anything wrong. Leave the kid alone.

    I love David and I don't see any need for him to explain himself. I have to admit, though, the last line, "It seems that being in the wrong place at the wrong time is a hereditary disposition for the Archuleta men", made me laugh histerically.i am ashamed. I adore David, too, but I laughed out loud upon reading that line as well. DON't LISTEN, ARCHIE!! DON'T LISTEN!!
