American Idol season 8 winner,Â Kris Allen is definitely the crush of many young women across the country, but do you really want to see him shirtless? Apparently. Photos of the singer lounging by a pool in the Bahamas recently made tabloid headlines and the singer isn’t too happy about it.
“I was pretty upset. It was like, ‘Seriously?’” Kris Allen recently said about the photos which were taken at the Bahamas resort, Atlantis.Â ”I knew it was probably going to happen. We’re in Atlantis, which is not the most secret place in the world. And we were trying to have a good time. People weren’t bothering us, but apparently they were taking sneaky pictures and selling them to the tabloids. I don’t know what they got off them, but I would like a cut.”
Kris Allen wasn’t the only shirtless boy to be featured in the pics. Some of the photos included his younger brother, Daniel, and his keyboardist Cale Mills.Â ”That made me feel better because I was like, ‘Cale, you’re in here too, buddy. I’m not by myself,’” Kris Allen said. Mills didn’t seem too upset about the ordeal.Â ”As soon as we heard about it we went and tried to find [the photos],” Mills said. “You know how Google will give you suggestions? If you type in ‘Kris Allen’ and hit a space, ‘shirtless’ pops up. And we were like, ‘Well, I’m guessing people have been looking for that before,” he joked.
Although the American Idol star is a tad worked up about the shirtless photos being released, his band members understand why they were.Â ”He’s a hunky guy,” Ryland Steen, Kris Allen’s drummer, admits.
