Kris Allen Photo Shoot - Exclusive!

Kris Allen is white hot in this exclusive new photo shoot for held on Thursday (May 24) at a private residence in Los Angeles.

The 26-year-old singer’s warm-hearted album Thank You Camellia debuted last week and has been well-received. “Thank You Camellia is full of such charming flourishes,” writes one journalist. “The whistling on ‘My Weakness’, a funky electric piano on ‘Rooftops’, the gamelan instrument that session drummer Aaron Sterling plays on ‘Monster’.”

JJ: How would you say your vision of life has evolved through the years?

KA: I feel like I see life differently now. I see it as this amazing challenge that I look forward to every day. I never used to see life as that. It used to be just this thing you went through and had a good time. Now I have responsibilities to myself, my family, my fans that I have to uphold. It’s more exciting this way and way more rewarding.

JJ: What influenced you the most for the new album? Which people and/or specific life experiences?

KA: My life is crazy enough to be inspired by the things I go through. Whether in my relationship or just in my travels.

JJ: What’s your favorite song on the Hot 100 charts? Who’s your fave male singer on it? Fave female singer?

KA: “Climax” by Usher and “Rumour Has It” by Adele.

JJ: What’s the latest movie you saw? Last album you bought? Last book you read?

KA: The Avengers, John Mayer‘s Born and Raised, and “The Soloist”.

JJ: What was the latest thing you indulgently purchased?

KA: I like food so probably a night out at a restaurant.

JJ: Has 2012 turned out the way you expected it to so far? What do you have left to accomplish before the year is up?

KA: Yes. It’s been a long time coming to put out this album and glad that I could do that in 2012. I want to finish out the year strong. On tour. On the road. I love being out on the road playing shows.

JJ: How soon are you looking to have kids of your own?

KA: I know there’s never going to be a perfect time to have kids but that time definitely doesn’t feel like now. Maybe talk to me in 2 years.

JJ: Who’s your favorite person to follow on Twitter?

KA: My friend @charlesbrowder

    Thanks, Jared! You bring out the best out of our best “pocket” idol.

  • MK204

    The first picture in the leather jacket with the grey shirt reminds me of a movie star photo from years ago. It’s very Pierce Brosnan like. And Pierce is gorgeous. Kris looks gorgeous in that photo. That picture needs to be made into a headshot. It’s the best one.

    Thanks JJ for the interview. I always know we’ll get a good one with you.


    He looks so good!! Love him

    The human facial expression of “watching paint dry.”
