Kris Allen continues to be awesome without even trying
If you read my blog during this Season 8 of American Idol, you will know that I liked Kris Allen from the beginning. Hot By Default is a LIKABLE and talented guy, so it actually annoys the shit out of me when people say there was some bullshit conspiracy and Adam Lambert really won. Whatevia. Lambert is on the cover of Rolling Stone. Neither one of these dudes are crying.
Granted, I don’t blame either one of them for crying during and after the impending Fraumageddon, but hey, I hope both of them do okay…in spite of the two big things they have going against them — coming into prominence on American Idol and subsequently gaining legions of obsessive, batshit crazy fans.
But in a couple of interviews posted today by MJ, we have discovered yet ANOTHER reason to like Hot By Default — in addition to him actually being a musican and finding no difficulty in reconciling his love for that Jesus dude AND gay people.
Hot By Default has a TRAGIC BACK STORY WHICH ZOMG WAS NOT PIMPED ON THE SHOW EVEN AFTER THEY MAY HAVE FIGURED OUT HE WAS NOT GOING TO BE THE CANNON FODDER AS TBTB INTENDED.
What is one thing that fans dont know about you?
“I don’t know if people know this or not: I actually had a tumor when I was 13. I had to have one of my ribs removed. I don’t think a lot of people know that. And I have a sweet scar now. It’s awesome”
So you’re telling me this dude had a tumor and a rib removed when he was barely a teenager, yet he did not make tumor shapes with his hand when telling people to vote for him? And shame on you, M.R.S. Katy Allen! Why weren’t you holding up ultrasound photos of his tumor when they showed you in the audience?
YAY, Kris Allen! Keep rocking on your humble, viola/guitar/piano-playing, bible-reading, missing-a-rib, homo-loving self.
(ETA: He needs to be sitting next to Quatto! HBD needs to talk Quatto out of hiding. Only he can do it. A new photo from Matt Giraud’s Twitter)
