    Kris is going to be on Ellen today. Good launch for his first album.

    The 'American Idol' winner seems to have some very aggressive fans


    Winning "American Idol" and becoming an overnight sensation certainly has its benefits, but it has its downside too, depending on who you ask. Our reigning Idol Kris Allen certainly got more than he had anticipated when a crazy female fan tried to have her way with the star...
    "This woman was taking a picture with me, but right before the picture was taken she grabbed my face and stuck her tongue down my throat," Allen revealed to Tarts at the American Music Awards on Sunday.
    But what did his wife have to say of the incident?
    "She just laughed, she thought it was so funny," Allen said.
    And even though the pressure of the hit reality show is all well and truly over, the Arkansas native is still feeling the heat.
    "Its a different kind of pressure now, now you have the camera on you and this whole lifestyle," Allen explained. "I don't mind it though."
    And what advice does the 24-year-old have to those who want to follow in his footsteps?
    "Be yourself," Allen added. "Just go out there and sing your face off ..."
    However Sunday night’s AMAs proved that winning “Idol” doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be the most talked about singer of your season. While Allen had a presenting duty at the awards show, his runner-up Adam Lambert got a lot more exposure and put on quite the crouch-grabbing, gyrating show ahead of his debut album dropping this week.
    “Both of us are going to be compared to each other for awhile, probably until the next 'Idol' happens,” Allen said. “Adam is definitely out there and he does his thing with electro-dance rock music and I do my thing which is laid back chill pop music which is cool.”

    Kris exhibit’s a great attitude in this article. Love what he has to say about fitty cent at the end.

    Kris Allen: 'I Didn't Try Out For 'Idol' To Be #1 On iTunes'


    'I tried out for 'Idol' to make music,' the show's champ says.

    by James Montgomery


    Kris Allen says he doesn't care about album sales or chart debuts, both of which are good things, considering his self-titled debut shared a release date with John Mayer's Battle Studies, Leona Lewis Echo and 50 Cent's Before I Self Destruct, to name just a few.

    So, clearly, the competition to top the Billboard albums chart is fierce. And though we won't know the winner until Wednesday morning, when Nielsen Soundscan releases the official numbers, Allen isn't holding his breath. He's already pretty sure he's not going to take the #1 spot — and he's perfectly fine with that.

    "I didn't try out for 'Idol' to be #1 on iTunes, I tried out for 'Idol' to make music, and that's what I feel like I'm doing," Allen said. "I'm not trying to go quadruple-platinum, like [fellow "Idol" champ] Carrie Underwood."

    Early results have Allen battling it out with the likes of 50, Norah Jones and Justin Bieber for the week's second-highest debut (Mayer's Battle Studies seems to be the odds-on favorite to not only be the week's biggest debut, but the #1 album in the country). And though Allen may say he only cares about making music, he'd be lying if he said he didn't have second thoughts about debuting during such a crowded week.

    "I actually talked to [Jive Records], and I was like, 'Are you sure we want to come out on this day?'" he laughed. "I mean, John Mayer, Leona Lewis ... 50 Cent. I'm scared of him. He got shot, dude. I've never gotten shot. John Mayer hasn't been shot. Leona Lewis, she got punched, but she didn't get shot though. It's 50 Cent, dude."

    Just got his album, and I actually really like it. I could listen to every track and enjoy it.

    I can't stop listening to "I Need to Know." It's like with his version of "Falling Slowly," but more.

    I am 100% with you! The album is fun, but that last song... through all the hoopla Kris manged to do what I loved best about him on the show. He stripped away all the production and pretense, and was nakedly, honestly himself. He embraces faith and frustration; he manages to admit that sometimes life just sucks, but manages to still come away somehow uplifted. It's a remarkable piece of writing and performance.

    Another bit of news - I hear Kris will be the guest artist on next week's So You Think You Can Dance results show.

    Re: Kris Allen - Season 8

    Just a brief update for Kris. As of this afternoon his song sits at #32 on the Top 40 Pop Charts & #18 on the HAC Charts, with the biggest positive numbers he has had yet. It may have been a bit of a slow start, but it looks really good right now.
