Kris Allen Reveals His Secret Love For One Direction (VIDEO)

Even if you decide not to watch the entire 7 minute twitter and Facebook Q&A Kris Allen posted for fans, you definitely want to watch beginning at the 7 minute mark, where the American Idol season 8 winner reveals a secret passion.

It involves Simon Cowell. OK. Not Simon. But 5 boys very near and dear to his heart.

It’s hilarious. YOU’RE WELCOME!

Also, baby Oliver “baptized” daddy Kris. I think you know what I’m talking about.

    LOL he is such a dork. I love him.

  • snappp

    loll “baptized” is one way to call it! I wonder how many times did it happen before he prevented it from happening. The last part of this video is hilarious XD I am surprised he memorized the words!

  • Incipit

    The Q&A is fun – with the little asides Kris mumbles under his breath…and he’s a sweetheart to do this for the fans with so much else going on in his life right now.

    Oliver’s schedule probably takes precedence – and I hope Kris learned the technique to prevent any further “baptisms”…Heh. I can’t believe no one warned him – or maybe that was a Rite of Passage for the new daddy? *chuckle*.

  • girlygirl

    Yay, becoming a dad hasn’t made him any less of a dork :)

    It’s funny that no one warned him about how baby boys like to “baptize” the unsuspecting, lol

    On a more serious note, glad to hear the cast should be coming off soon & that he’s got more writing sessions scheduled.

  • Eileen99

    Love this. I think the best parts are the snarky things he mutters under his breath.

    Also, he looks surprisingly rested. lol

  • linsmile

    Very entertaining! Love it! He does look happy and rested. Good to know how far along he is on the album, too – he sounds excited about it!

  • calico

    Fatherhood apparently agrees with him, unexpected showers and all. Fun thing to do for the fans.

  • mtlfan2

    hihihi he’s entertaining. The last answer was hilarious!!

  • Shannen

    I always love watching Kris videos, his personality just shines through. The ending put a huge smile on my face.

  • MissMyEm

    I hope that Kris does this again. It was so entertaining. He’s so up front with his fans and that’s one of the many things I find endearing. That and his secret passion at the end.

  • iluvai

    Ha ha. He wishes he was like the 1D boys. It’s never going to happen. Blech.

  • girlygirl


  • washpd

    He’s so boring that you spend your time reading posts on a blog about him and commenting.

  • Kariann Hart

    He’s so up front with his fans and that’s one of the many things I find endearing.
    Not every Idol winner can be called “endearing”, but that term fits him to a tee. I’m sure he’s learned the baby wipe procedure by now. LOL.

  • Ratna12

    Love Kris’ video blog, and I hope that he is doing this weekly. <33
    He looks really good for someone who looks like he is sleep deprived.

  • HopeForMusic

    I really, really liked Kris on Idol, and I liked his first CD. I’ve loved TYC, though, and what I’ve learned about his personality. I can’t wait for more from the weekly blog/vlog, but he’ll have a tough time topping that one. lol

  • MarySue

    He kinda loves talking about poop and pee a little too much for my tastes LOL but a good video nonetheless….

  • nncw

    Thank you Kris for always thinking of your loyal fans – keeping us up to date on your music and just being generally charming – you always put a smile on my face.

  • Jonins

    He is such a dorky doll if there’s such a thing. LOL… Love his vlog. Didn’t expect him to be such a funny guy when he was in AI. He looked pretty damn fine for a sleep deprived new father. :)

    What I really love about Kris is that he never takes himself too seriously. He just do what he loves and enjoys himself.

  • hoosiermama

    Great vlog! Kris and I have something in common–I sing along/dance to 1D when no one’s looking, too–haha!

    I’d say life is really really good for Kris right now. Glad to see him so happy!

  • MV007

    I think it’s called a dry wit. It’s been known to go over some peoples heads.

  • calico

    You know about Kris’s wishes for his career? Cool! Please, tell us more.

  • Miz

    Satire is obviously lost on you.

  • Miz

    Kris is always so much fun and I love that he doesn’t take himself too seriously. The ‘what do you do when nobody is watching’ response was priceless. Love his tongue in cheek humor.

    Excited that he’s working on writing and recording and will be back on the road next week.

  • nyc57

    I just love Kris’s sense of humor,especially his mumbled stream of conscious asides.He just has such a natural charm.

  • waitingforthe1

    He’s so adorable! I love his sense of humor. He’s very random and off the cuff.

  • Pippygirl

    R. Kelly references and shaking his a** to 1Direction.

    Yup very boring. ;)

  • disqus_l9306FWZtD

    Love him!

  • MissMyEm

    I liked the 1D song that Kris was singing to. I didn’t find it boring or monotone at all. It was kind of upbeat and fun. Assuming of course that’s what you meant because that’s all Kris sang on that vlog.

  • tripp_ncwy

    Kris’ merchandise store is now available on KAO;

  • MissMyEm

    And a cute little a** it is too, as I can definitely attest to. :)

  • esther macha

    This has to be a wonderful time for Kris and his wife . I can,t wait to see a picture of their little baby.

  • girlygirl

    Aww, Zorro’s face…good to see Kris hasn’t forgotten about his first “baby”, haha

    #Definitely can’t forget about this guy

  • KelseyW

    Oh Kris…Never change! lol I hope that along with his blogs that vlogs become a regular thing for him to post on his website. He’s really good at doing both.

    Glad to hear about new music being on the horizon, and that he’ll be getting his cast off soon.

    I swear I always miss these “Ask me anything!” things that Idols do on Twitter…And when I don’t miss them I can never think of anything to say until after the fact. *sigh* One of these days I’m going to ask this lovely man something online and get a response. :P

  • EB

    That was amazing! Has he ever covered 1D before? That would be awesome. ;D
