Kris Allen’s Album Cover? I hope so.

October 12, 2009

More speculation about Kris Allen’s album cover — this is the image being used on Barnes & Noble’s website:

Kris Allen Album Cover

He’s too young for me. And married. And probably too short for me. Plus, I don’t tard over anyone or anything…except maybe Battlestar Galactica (the new one…but then they nearly blew this for me with the finale…which sucked) or Mad Men, or competitive swimming. But that’s not tarding. It’s more appreciating. And if I was gonna tard over any famous male, it would be Ewan MacGregor, George Clooney, Jon Hamm, Eric Bana or Joshua Jackson. Sometimes I tard over goat cheese. And Croatia. And Burning Man. And I really love my cat. Nah…none of it is tarding — even over Quatto the Mole or Ade’s Pick!

I digress. My whole point was that I’m not an idiot fantard. I’m not even an idiot fangirl. But that Kris Allen is an attractive young man. If that is, indeed, his album cover, the photo is a very nice choice. Excellent lighting. He’s a very good-looking guy and I don’t care what any of you say, attractive males on Idol is virtually unheard of. Except for a few pieces of random jewelry the kid picked up, they didn’t even have to give him a makeover.

I know some people found Jason Castro adorable. No way. He was what happened when L. Ron Hubbard made John Travolta stick his thetan in a Fraggle. (Poor, poor little Fraggle) David Cook showed up in a sweater vest with Flock of Seagulls hair. Constantine Maroulis and Blake Lewis cause one to wince and turn away for fear of getting their vicious strains of unidentifiable, incurable VD. It’s like how you’re not supposed to look at a solar eclipse. You look at them on TV from the presumed safety of your living room and boom! You get weird sores and your privvies have rotted away even before you hit the pause on your Tivo to go grab more Captain Morgan & Diet Pepsi. They should have just made Ace Young do all his performances sans shirt. He would have won the damn thing based on the abs alone. Plus, most normal people would rather see a half-naked Ace Young over listening to most of these yahoos sing.

Anyway, Kris Allen is one of the best-looking male contestants they’ve ever had on that shit show. And that statement doesn’t make me a fangirl. Or a Kris Tard. It’s just kind of…true.

    HaHa. Okay. New Twitter drama. Apparently, Samantha Ronson chose LLWD as her “Song of the day”…she also said she thought it was a good song. Now she is being bombarded with hate tweets by the Glamberts! LOL.

      Why am I not surprised? Didn’t the Glamberts also freak out when Sam and Lindsay Lohan saw the AI concert at Staples, and LiLo tweeted something sarcastic to Perez because he referred to him as Glambert as opposed to Adam Lambert? In other words, something that wasn’t the least bit insulting to Adam, but since she was a fan of Matt’s, they assumed she must be a hater or something. Maybe Sam’s still on their shitlist because she’s somehow guilty by association?

    • blacklisted permalink

      Ridiculous. Although not as ridiculous as s & s on TwoP dismissing Sam by stating that she was most famous for “turning Lindsay Lohan into a lesbian”.

      How does a fan of an out and proud gay man not know when she’s making homophobic comments?

      • Isidra permalink
        October 16, 2009 6:52 am

        Because only people who are fans of people OTHER than Adam Lambert can be homophobic!

        A lot of the complaints/comments some Adam fans have made about his boyfriend Drake have struck me as remarkably homophobic as well. It’s like they have some weird cognitive disconnect about the whole thing.

      At least twitter drama is current. The bat shit crazies need new wank material and the rest of us need new shenanigans to mock.

      Alas, the usual band of annoying, obsessive compulsive twats at MJ’s are STILL regurgitating the issue of LLWD being a b-side on an imported single, that no one heard until Kris sang it.

      It’s pretty much:

      “omg, the song is too wordy” (Yes bitch, we knew that weeks ago).

      “he’s sang covers at the Bosom Ball, why not his own songs?” (Uh, Kris sang his OWN single and as his album hasn’t been released, he can’t sing anything else off it.)

      “I can’t hear it bc I fear he’ll have trouble breathing” (Hmm, he’s got much better breathe control than you, a 400 pound, 45 year old heiffer living in her mother’s basement).

      “Why does he insist on playing a guitar at an acoustic event?” (I’m stumped.)

      • Isidra permalink
        October 16, 2009 6:56 am

        My favorite were the comments from the day before suggesting it would be “weird” or “insensitive” to sing LLWD at a cancer fundraiser.

        Latest in Twitter drama:

        HBD tweeted about how a drunk Santa asked him if he shit his pants or something, so according to those who are ‘concerned’ about his iTunes sales, he is an immature little boy destroying any chance of a music career. We all know that the number of immature tweets an artist publishes are inversely proportional to the number of downloads he or she sells.

          Why am I NOT surprised that the nutbar from TwoP was having an issue with that tweet? Strange that someone who doesn’t follow Kris’ twitter is the first heiffer to make a comment about it.

        • deez permalink
          October 16, 2009 8:17 pm

          It’s almost as if the Glamberts are intravenously attached to Kris’s twitter. (and/or anything else about him) If Kris is really that awful, why are they on red alert 24/7?

          What was wrong w/the Santa tweet? Was it b/c he said “shit”….oh wait ….he didn’t actually say that. (What’s the problem?) Oh wait….he should engage in mature activities like raping a mic stand, calling his fans “smelly”, or putting swastikas on his clothing.

        haha im guessing they probably would do more retouching to Kris’ for the sole reason that he doesn’t cover up his every imperfection with a pound of makeup the way Adam does. After his face is completely coated, is retouching even needed?

    • Wino permalink
      October 13, 2009 4:17 pm

      Hurray for Hamm! The man just oozes sex appeal. Hmmm, I think that’s the main appeal of HBD…being attractive without trying. You just know the guy doesn’t give a fk when he wakes up in the morning. Hamm has that in spades. DISCLAIMER: NOT saying HBD is on Hamm’s level of pure sexiness. Just saying they share a similar trait: naturally good lookin, unpretentious boys from the heartland (and yes, midwest/south..all the same to us LA folk)

        Hamm is from St. Louis. We both went to MU.

            We’re not all that bad. Rush Limbaugh may be from Cape Giradeau (small town with minor state school) so, um…well, he’s only one person. And a big fat loser, so…

    Oh, TI, I knew I loved you. Jon Hamm, Joshua Jackson — love them both!

    Yeah, Kris looks fabbo here (especially in his Don Draper pose), but then again, I actually thought Cook was cute (and most likely bisexual) when he auditioned for Idol with the pink hair and the argyle vest. (Can’t help it — have always had a soft spot for argyle and had to stop myself from buying an argyle sweater just this past weekend. So sue me!).

    Kris is a little short for my tastes, but he is definitely one cutie patootie, even if I think they photoshopped the lowcut neckline on his grey undershirt here.

    I find it interesting that both Kris and Cook both have really nice, poreless skin, and I think, with the advent of HD television, that had as much to do with their success on Idol as anything. As much as I liked Adam, that bad skin, covered in pancake make-up, was a reality check for me. No way would shallow American television viewers vote for somebody with bad skin. Thinning hair is one thing, but pimples and acne scars? No frakkin’ way!

      I think it was MJ saying she wished there was a bit less airbrushing–she’s not a fantard of anyone as far as I know.

      I actually thought the way the photo is done makes it look a little film noir-ish, which is a really cool effect IMO. But to each their own.

      Kris is definitely very good-looking and the cover uses that without being too obvious about it. It makes me more interested to see what Adam’s and Allison’s covers will look like. I personally think that Adam is very good-looking and Allison is very cute/pretty (it depends on how she’s styled), which can only help the three of them in this business.

      Right…there was disappointment expressed, I’m sure, that a zit may have been obscured, and the hairline fluffed. Other than that, you really can’t tell a lot of work was done. But you’re right…no complaints when someone else gets the “full treatment”.

      Lol…It’s a good thing it’s not a full body shot. One thing the MJ Glambert crowd hates is Kris’s shoes. I’ve never seen so much scrutiny of a pair of Chucks in my life.

      It’s the way of the music biz, but imo excessive airbrushing is just that, excessive. Kris has naturally nice skin so it’s not too drastic of a change, but I do wish they’d keep some of the mini wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. But no one’s singling out Kris here. There was major rage over at mj’s over Kelly’s Self cover, for instance…and similar anger from some over Adam’s Sebree pics… some people just don’t like airbrushing. Airbrushing to me is visual autotune.

      Kris has beautiful skin. The photoshopping was done for a particular effect (ie give it an old hollywood vibe).

      MJ’s comment about photoshopping was in a context of an overall positive review. The fantards who are having issues with the picture, apparently don’t like it for their usual BSC reasons. Eh, it’s expected.

    Very very nice picture. It’s good that they actually gave him a cover and didn’t do the emo headshot thing they apparently did for the top 2 last year. So this works well for Kris, and hopefully Adam’s and Allison’s covers will also be good.

    Lol. I’ve already seen a few negative comments. I read one that said it looked as if he were saying “WTF” at all the empty seats. I’m sure a certain faction hasn’t discovered it yet, as most comments have the opposite of that one.

      I’m sure some idiot somewhere has already written something to the effect of:

      “Obviously everyone thought they were seeing Lambert and when they found out Kris was playing, all of them left.”

      The vipers at MJ’s are already complaining about the picture. Some don’t think it’s attractive, boo hoo.

      Seriously, are they retarded? blind? lacking in estrogen and/or testosterone?

        Heh. I knew it was a good cover as soon as I saw them start kvetching.

        Kris just needs eyeliner, a bad dye job, and a foot in height. They’d adore him then.

      W.O.W.

      I don’t know which one I like the most, the ‘man in the mirror’ or this one…..I can’t….um…it’s just……(well, both are so pretty!)

      I’ll try to make sense on those negative comments….(Are they really looking?! Just the lips alone….or the hand….the chest…..Okay, I’ll stop tarding now!) I don’t get why people try to deny the TRUTH that, yeah, compare to the majority of Idols (like 97 percents) Kris is really superior in the looks alone even without the help of makeup or stylists…..Will it make their ‘Idols’ look better? um…….no.

      Oh well, I guess nothing will ever change their mind…..their lost.;-p

    ITA, he is one damn good-looking man. I like the cover. It’s nice and clean and simple and he looks like himself unlike the David Cook cover which looked like someone just got photoshop for the first time. For goodness sake I’ve had the font they used on my computer for years.

      I loathed the cover. I hated the colour scheme because so many albums had come out that time with a similar black/white/red scheme (Bryan Adams, Usher, John Legend…). And the haircut. And the eyes looked like they were looking in two different directions! I really hope he gets a better art director for his next album. Maybe Kris can help him out a little.

    Kris is a lucky man. I’m sure he has a couple of stalkers, but somehow the vast majority of frauen do not find him attractive. Most of the nuts have latched onto poor Adam, while another sizable chunk (heh) are GokeyTards. Maybe he will manage to keep a distance from them. Strangely enough, I think him being married is a turnoff to the loonies, while Adam being gay somehow poses no obstacle.

    Very nice pic…I’ll prolly actually purchase a CD (Something I haven’t done in about 2 years). I hope the music is good. He seems to think it is…although whoever is leaking the info to Rickey and others, isn’t so positive. I hope Jive lets him have some input into which songs make the album, as opposed to them just picking whatever sounds the most “radio-friendly.”

      “Kris is a lucky man. I’m sure he has a couple of stalkers, but somehow the vast majority of frauen do not find him attractive.”

      I’d say Kris is doing well with gay men, straight but not narrow men (ICU Jim Cantiello!), teens, young adult women and 30-something year olds who are slightly dismayed to realize at this late date that a young, short, perfectly proportional guy could also be attractive.

      Damn Kris for changing my minimum of RDJ-sized to something…smaller.

          Slezak fits the gay male category. He also fits the niche category of ‘gay AI bloggers who noticed Kris’ attributes early on’…and yes we mean musical ability and not just Kris’ more, uh, physical charms (which they noticed too, hello, they ARE gay men, not dead men).

          That blogger group includes Slezak, Richard Lawson, Jacob from Twop, Rickey, etc, etc…

    I love this cover. The photo choice is great. HBD is a good looking dude. I don’t know how anyone can deny that.

    My only qualm with this would be the font choice. (It’s the graphic design nerd coming out). Haha. But other than that, this is really good. ESPECIALLY for an idol album. They have a record of being super shitty (SEE: David Cook’s album cover)

      Huh… I like David Cook’s album cover though. I like the feel of it, even though he does look kind of pissy. David Archuleta’s was a bit of a mess to me.

        Anything with Archuleta reminds me of this Domo classic.

          Bwaaaaaah! You know, I wasn’t an Archie fan but that kid cracks me up sometimes. Kid can be snarky too; he said if he had sung the “Magic Rainbow” song instead of Cook an actual rainbow probably would have appeared.

      • October 12, 2009 11:18 pm

        I know Cook is supposed to be a ~RAWK STAR and the Grunge effect is supposed to symbolize that, but it honestly looked like something I made in photoshop in 6th grade

          I’m a self-admitted David-tard, but yeah, that was an awful POS cover and I’m not afraid to say it.

          This is going to sound weird, but…is anybody else getting a slight “Green Bay Packers” vibe? One of my first thoughts was “he’s a Packers fan, right?” (crap I shouldn’t know that). The green and gold makes me think all things Lombardi, Wisconsin and Favre.

          In that case I envy your photoshop skills 😛 The best I can do is random light effects and changing coloring… I fail at graphics, so I guess I’m easily impressed by apparently amateurish work.

    Seems like Jive’s game plan DOES include capitalizing on HBD’s good looks.

    The colors and background makes me think old Hollywood movie, while the green gives it a holidayish feel. Guess the label figures that Kris would make a good stocking stuffer.

    Lol!
    Kris looks great as always- if this is the album cover, my only real complaint would be that it’s self titled. Hope he got to keep the jacket!

    • TopIdol permalink

      I like self titled. It’s simple. It works for a debut album.

    I see you trying to deny your inner tard TI. Shhh… there, there, it’s okay, just let it out *pets head*.

    I found myself grinning at this photo. THIS is an album cover. HBD looks hella hot and I really like the colour scheme too. He’d better back it up with good tunes.

      I’ve never seen so many qualifiers in my life. Heh. You can tard over the hot guy for a second, its allowed. He does look purdy in that picture.

      I hope his album is good. I like Kris. It would be nice to see him do well for the right reasons.

    “He was what happened when L. Ron Hubbard made John Travolta stick his thetan in a Fraggle. (Poor, poor little Fraggle)”

    THIS. This has made me collapse in hysterics and laugh so uncontrollably I’m in tears! JHC that’s funny shit.

    And God DAMN that’s a yummy picture of Kris. (*slaps self* STOP it self…he’s married, and so are you!)
