David Archuleta Explains Gay Club Visit

After being spotted at a gay club in New York City this weekend, David Archuleta has turned to his Twitter to clarify the situation!

“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. The upside was that Charice was awesome, and she has an incredible voice.”

“Hope that clears things up!” David concluded. “Been seeing some of the tweets.. sheesh!”

Charice backed David up, tweeting, “[B]ottomline, David just showed his support for me. and i wanna thank [him] for doing that.”

    You can only deny it for so long before it becomes annoying, but the choice is up to him as to when he will actually come out.

    OMG, I was in a straight club on Saturday! Now I suppose everyone will attempt to ‘in’ me!

    He seems really defensive about that… like actually WTF. It’s not a big deal, buddy.

    There is no shame in being gay. He should just admit that he is gay. Don’t be like Ricky Martin and be the last one to know you’re gay.

    The reason he took to clarifying it so much was because VFTW blew it out of proportion, took an entire paragraph out of context and said that he had come out of the closet.

    I don’t think he should’ve responded though, VFTW is on a very high horse atm

    he’s being so deffensive about this whole situation..

    he should be like “I went to a gay club to support my friend’s performance” and leave as that..

    him being so deffensive make’s me believe he might be hidding something big inside his closet.

    David Archuleta is awesome~ I love him! And there’s a tiny bit more to it than that. He was responding to hateful tweets accusing him of being gay, and bashing Charice for spending time with him. He later realized that he inadvertently offended a few ppl, so he tweeted that he meant he was not a partying kind of person. (This club is known for being erotic). Alot of ppl, myself included, are not used to~ or comfortable in~ those types of club situations, and it’s perfectly fine to say so. David didn’t do anything wrong, and didnt’ need to explain himself to anybody. I think he handled it exactly the right way. Next story…

    I think its incredible stupid that people are so paranoid that just because you visit gay club or bar to support someone, you’re identified as gay. People are so uptight . If David Archie was in a gay club or straight club, who cares!

    Vanessa Says:

    Gay clubs are the most fun, everyone I know goes to them–straight or gay. What an idiot, he’s all defensive.

    Straight folks does not hav probs if they go watch ppl they know for a show specially if you are in a group of friends & to think it’s in a high end Manhattan dance/gay club57. The closeted one’s always explains when spotted, it always happens, let go of guilt! hope you comes out sooner, it’s okay look at Adam, Clay & Ricky, you are in a great company!

    Mike Says:

    He made a mistake why would you even explain this? He doesn’t realize that this makes the situation worst for himself because he’s paranoid and so defensive…

    err Says:

    Hmm, I think he just wasn’t able to find the right words. I wouldn’t blame him if he did sound a bit defensive. Even I who is a lot older than him, had to reign myself not to respond to the nastiness some of his fan-girls were throwing around at that time. I was surprised how mean teenagers can get nowadays. It is really cyber-bullying. They were tweeting David & Charice obscenities & death threats just because of what they heard/read on twitter.

    One last thing
    Taylor Lautner was recently spotted at Bryan Singer’s party, and his parties are mostly attended by gay men in the industry,
    it was on Perez Hilton and other gossip sites, and Taylor L didn’t panicked and defende himself, and guess what? nothing happened!
    I’m comparing them because they’re almost the same age,,

    Paulie Says:

    Ugh, what a little homophobe.

    The way he’s (over) reacting you’d think someone accused him of
    rape or murder.

    “So, was David bumping and grinding with some steamy Dominican muscle man? Hardly. David was there with his friend Charice, who performed a dance remix of her current hit single, “Pyramid” at the coveted 1:30 a.m. spot. Reportedly, however, Charice and her entourage, which included David and his old band mate Eli, did do something terribly scandalous after the performance: They went to a local Pinkberry for ice cream.”

    So he either has to be gay or a homophobe, is that how it works? Pls read this:

    AreYouKiddingMe Says:

    He’s not a homophobe Paulie. He’s more than likely gay but afraid to come out because of his fan base.

    Irene Says:

    He probably doesn’t even know he’s gay himself yet

    nl Says:

    Unlike “regular” people like those posting their comments here, Archuleta’s twitter was innundated with people hating on him for hanging out with Charice, being at a gay club and then when he finally commented about it all to try to calm some strange fans, he is bashed for that. This kid can not win.

    Dhen Says:

    yeah makes me feel sad that there are actually people throwing nasty comments both to Charice (who just graced an invitation to perfrom her hit single Pyramid Remix which is hot in the clubs) and David who’s been a good friend supporting his friend. they even left immediately after the performace and went to Pinkberry for some icecream. david is also with Eli, his former band member and now Charice drummer. end of story.

    @Irene: are you gay?

    Jackson Says:

    You can say whatever you want to. He has been through lots of things in his short life. During Idol, when various rumors completely overshadowed his talent, he showed resilience and perseverance, still maintaining smile on his face. Although he said he is not gay, people are speculating. Gays want him to be gay and straight guys want him to be gay so that he fails. Just watch how he learns and grows. He is much stronger than you think. His book will come out in June, so check it out why he is who he is now.

    One more, read tweets again. He said going to clubs for partying is not his style of leisure, gays or not. Is it hard to understand? For a teen, exotic dance clubs are not a common place to have fun. Especially, Archuleta? He is not a typical Hollywood spoiled brat.
