Kris Allen Interview with Andrew Cook at

August 29, 2009

Kris Allen and the rest of the Idol kiddies are in St. Louis right now. Yup. St. Louis, where yours truly was born and raised. (You are ordered to get me photos and recaps!)

While in the Gateway City, our wonderful HBD gave a radio interview via phone with KCRADIO, which is simply an online radio station. If you’re wondering why Kris Allen has called in to his FIRST EVER ONLINE RADIO STATION (i.e., how the hell was it okay-ed by 19E), wonder no more. He’s talking to Andrew Cook, the younger brother of Season 7’s winner, David Cook.

Both Allen and Cook tried out with their brothers, in case you were wondering.

Here are some interesting tidbits from today’s interview. HBD sounds pretty worn down. I imagine the kid is tired since he hasn’t really had a day off. Plus, in addition to working those long, hard hours, he has to deal with the batshit crazies! Poor thing, however, the optimistic part of me really hopes Allen and Lambert are doing their best to cut off lunatic behavior.

Andrew Cook asked Allen what the strangest thing was he’s been asked to sign. Let’s check out his answer.

I was actually at a meet & greet like walked up, lifted up her shirt and bra, in front of kids and stuff, and said sign my nipple.

Andrew Cook is stunned. (Perhaps his brother needs to fill him in more? Or is he just keeping the conversation going? Cook isn’t a bad interviewer whatsoever.)


No, it was somewhere in Boston or something, I was like, oh gosh.

I really hope 19E doesn’t screw up Allen’s debut album. I sincerely hope he puts out something solid, as it already seems they’ve pop-i-fied La Princesa del Maraichi a bit more than she would have preferred.

Listen to the entire interview if you wish. Kris Allen just sounds…exhausted.

    I got that kinda feeling that they were like, ‘We… we wanted Danny to win…’

    I would imagine. ROFL

    I have faith in Kris for his debut based purely on his pre-idol album, which is exceptionally good. Adam’s will be a hit or miss, which is frankly more worrisome. I know nothing about Allison’s progress but hell, it’s definitely going to be better than what the Disney drones put out.

    OMG! Kris has crazy fans, too??!?!! Seriously though, AI is like the Wal-Mart of the music industry, or something. These people are unbelievably disgusting.

    I think Kris will surprize a lot of people with his album. A few people have heard his demos and have said it wasn’t what they were expecting – it’s strong material.

    Adam and Allison are two of my favorites but it could go either way with them. Adam is so out of the box he will be polarizing and his fusion album may not work. And Allison…I just hope they don’t give her Disney shit.

      John Mayer,Avril Lavigne,Norah Jones,Leona Lewis,Britney Spears are releasing on November 17. Kris is releasing on such a packed day. I think he will be overshadowed by those established well-known artists.

    I love Kris, but I see no way at all that his debut album isn’t the standard manufactured 19 lightweight crap. He’s gotten (for the most part) the stable of usual-suspect writers and 4 months to write and record while on tour and doing press. (the same deal as everybody before him) I seriously don’t expect a lot. His second album will be MUCH better, I would think. The sad part is that when it ends up being the same old Idol assembly line tunes, he will get KILLED for it by music reviewers. (most of whom inexplicably seem to loathe the guy)

    I think the rock-edge that Allison has may protect her somewhat (unless they really try to “miley” her up).

    I figure a lot more effort will be put into Adam’s album because they realize they’ve got a cash cow there if they treat him right.

    And… I hope nipplegirl was escorted out by Boston’s finest. Seriously?? (I hope, at least, that she was under 50)
