Kris Allen: Shirtless Photos 'Upset' Him

Kris Allen: Shirtless Photos 'Upset' Him

Back in April, shirtless photos of Kris Allen vacationing at the Atlantis Resort in The Bahamas popped up online.

“I was pretty upset. It was like, ‘Seriously?’” the 25-year-old American Idol vet told MTV. “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!”

“I’m so glad I didn’t make those photos,” Kris’ drummer, Ryland Steen, added. “I think just my elbow was in one of them.”

Hi, Ryland‘s elbow!

P.S. Why is MTV linking to TMZ? The pictures broke on!

    If you watch the video, he doesn’t come off as mad or anything. He just seemed embarrassed that they got attention. He jokes about it. It’s not like he was complaining about those pictures surfacing.

    you guys watch the video on mtv’s site. he’s more embarrassed than upset. it’s adorable. i mean, i guess he’s whining but he’s just being modest about it. he’s not saying “boo i hate being famous.” he’s saying “i feel like a dork because people have seen my pastey body.”

    Love that he joked and said he wanted a cut off what they made on the photos.

    The Pics are hot hence our little pocket idol was a wee bit embarrassed by them. How cute was he in the video blushing about the pictures? Thanks @jambajim for asking Kris questions that make him squirm!

    Thanks for reposting Jared. Any pics of the Season 8 American Idol WINNER make me happy.

    Yeah, if you watch the interview, it’s obvious that he is not really “upset” in the sense that he is annoyed, it’s more like he is embarrassed by the pics. It’s cute, he can’t stop blushing. Watch the interview, he is very charming and comes across as a chill guy.

    Gah, Kris is so good looking! I watched the interview & he isn’t really upset, lol, he’s just a little embarrassed to have his shirtless self out there for the world to see. Geez, what should he say about it “yes, I’m thrilled for the world to see my nekkid upper body”? uh, no I don’t think so.
    I’m sorry Kris is embarrassed but the pics are great!

    Somebody get him a fainting couch!

    I don’t think he’s cut out for fame.

    I’m sure a Wal-Mart in Arkansas is hiring.

    guys.. this article seems a little misleading.. if you watch the video he doesnt come off as mad about them, he’s just embarrassed…. he was laughing about it,… you guys need to chill and watch the actual interview

    LOL did none of you idiots watch the interview? He was joking and playing around; he actually thought it was hilarious how much attention being shirtless caused. I hope you’re all aware of how completely moronic you just came off :)

    I don’t get it.
    In at least one picture, he looked directly into the camera. And in another photo, a girl was looking into the camera.
    So, I guess they knew that they were being photographed and they probably saw the photographer, too.
    Why upset now?
