David Archuleta clears up tweets about his gay club appearance

By Greg Hernandez

I saw some of David Archuleta’s posts on Twitter last night and kinda cringed.

The 2008 American Idol runner-up seems like a sweet kid so I thought about pretending that I didn’t see his tweets – filled with nervous LOL’s – about not wanting anyone to get the wrong idea just because he was seen at a gay club in NYC.

Among the Tweets he posted last night: Hey guys just wanted to clear something up real quick lol. Last night in New York I got invited to go and see my friend Charice perform…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…. I just didn’t want you guys to be worried so had to let you guys know the facts!

    Why in the world didn’t anyone give him a heads up so he could have made a decision whether or not to go beforehand? Surely someone – either his current management, those who invited him, or those who went with him – should have at least (knowing David’s clean cut image and taste in entertainment) mentioned that Club 57 was a well known Gay nightclub. They had to have considered it might generate some sort of controversy. We all know David’s not a homophobe, but we all know it’s not his style to hang out at clubs like Club 57 either.

    I believe David 110% when he says he had no clue what he was walking into. But I can’t shake the suspicion that someone else did. Maybe I’m being paranoid and overprotective but it seems like EVERY TIME David has a new CD or something coming out, voilà! Controversy!

    i like david archuleta and he seemed to be a very sweet guy. who cares what his sexual orientation is.

    besides, he’s there to support Oprah’s latest talent CHARICE, who’s being hyped as the next pop diva.

    David is a class act, who was only responding to tweets that were hateful because of where he was and because of who he went to see. So in responding as any normal person would do, he gets even more hate? That makes no sense. David did nothing wrong and he shouldn’t have felt he had to explain himself to anyone. Ppl made a mountain out of a molehill.

    He needed to say something because so many fans internationally bombarded him with hate tweets. Especially Charice’s Filipino haters couldn’t stop tweeting. But I think he handled the issues well. He didn’t need to explain anything. But owing to his tweets, some questions were solved and fans confusions died down. He clearly said that going to partying places is not his kind of style. His clean cut teen image doesn’t involve him going to clubs, gays or not. Do you think majority of teens are going to nightclubs? I really think David’s choice is not controversial at all, especially for a teen celebrity like him.

    As far as I know David and Charice are friends way back Macy’s thanksgiving parade. She also collaborated in his Xmas album.

    He’s there to watch Charice perform her latest single Pyramid remix (currently #7 in Billboard and hot in the danceclubs) and he’s with Eli, his former band member who is now Charice’s drummer.

    Well David, don’t worry, we your real loyal and devoted fans are not going to love you less than beftore. With/without those stupid gossips we will still love you. Charice is goingto get more from these gossips because right now her PR is trying to market her new CD. For David, time will tell. If people really love you for your talent and your voice, they will still support you nomatter what. I believe that David is a nice straight guy who loves his fans whoever they are, straights, gays, grandmas, grandpas, teenagers, mothers, fathers, you name them, because of a simple reason…..he is just a kindhearted young guy, period. Please people don’t make a big deal of something that is nothing.
