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!

    Kris, get a suntan first before you show your horrible white skin to the public!!

    They didn’t see any photographers. That’s why he referred to them as “sneaky.” He may have been smiling, but it wasn’t for a camera.

    Man. They really are sheltered in the South, what grown man says that.

    Poster above, this kid and the blond girl both looked directly into the camera lens.

    As for Jared, duuude. Sucks that sites like Perez and now MTV use your photos and lift articles you broke without crediting or linking. Can’t you sue for stuff like that?

    I just listened to the interview. I think Kris is just sort of modest and was embarrassed more than upset. He’s not really a fame ***** and I don’t see this as a bad thing. He’s cute, too bad he’s married :)

    Molly Says:

    Yeah, and he wasn’t exactly thrilled that he was such a whitie and that he was out of shape (he said that in another interview, lol)! April’s a little early to be tan anyway unless you do tanning beds.

    Anyway, I wasn’t upset at aaaaalll!

    @Duane: He wasn’t posing, moron.

    @[awkward]: Sure, I’m a fan, and it’s going really well! Why are all of Jared’s readers so negative?

    @Molly: This site used to be pretty upbeat and pleasant but lately as more and more people have migrated from Perez, Yahoo (and other extremely negative, childish sites) it’s basically turned into every other blog on the internet. I still prefer it here though. The format works for me and the updates are fast, and I like that Jared accepts links in his comments as most gossip sites do not.

    you must be kidding. jared is the only blog left that is still more or less fair and positive, there’s some healthy snark but not much disgusting language compared to other blogs. there’s no gang mentality unless someone is posted to death ie. rachel bilson whose unemplyed as.s used to get about 3 walking posts PER day causing readers to find her unbearable and utterly pointless

    Beth Says:

    Oh, Kris is just modest and was a little embarassed. He wasn’t THAT upset. Your title is misleading, Jared and stop whining. Mtv messed up, but you got tons of hits from those photos.

    J Says:

    dude… you were walking around shirtless. someone took a picture of you in a public area. if you wanted to keep your torso hidden from the public, maybe you shouldn’t have… walked on a public beach with your shirt off. dumb.

    This article is misleading people. Please see the actual video first at this link before commenting.

    Hi Jared – the way this is written makes it look like way more than it is.
    And if any of those who have left negative comments had actually watched the interview then, maybe they would note that he was actually laughing, smiling and blushing during this portion of the interview. It wasn’t that deep. It wasn’t that serious.

    Oh, and, by the way, this is fun news to the fans that, YES, Kris Allen actually has! HE HAS FANS PEOPLE, ACCEPT IT! They like to read stuff about artists, celebs, political figures, authors, dancers etc. that they enjoy, respect and appreciate. It’s nothing new or special. It happens all over the world ;-)
    If your not interested, just leave it alone. No need to get so riled up about something or someone that you don’t care about.

    Cait Says:

    Kris is adorable and sexy. I don’t care if he gets embarassed, we need more shirtless pics. Love his sexy voice, too. Damn.

    Sals Says:

    I thought the Glamberts were bad but you Kris fans are so rude! Why are you all attacking people who don’t like the picture? Not everyone likes Kris you know!!!

    Kris should be happy to get some press coverage, I don’t seem to be able to find many stories about him these days. Has he gone into hiding?

    Amanda Says:

    I don’t understand why they upset him…he looked hot.

    sheila Says:

    Britney, jamie, & others: obviously petty, negative-minded commenters don’t care that Kris was just being funny. They’re so ready to put someone down. Anyone who watched the interview objectively understood that he was just being funny & modest.

    Shaun, you are a very prejudiced person.
