EXCLUSIVE: David Archuleta Doesn’t Watch ‘Jersey Shore’, Says New Album Is Finished

“At first, I was like, ‘Why the heck should I be writing a book? I’m only 19 years old, ’” he said. “I can’t help but be myself. So, I wanted to do the same with my music.”

Archuleta said the new album is currently in the mastering process – and revealed that there is also a title track to the LP – one of his favorite’s on the piece, thus the name.

“This year has been so amazing. I’ve been so blessed, ” she says (quote via CMTT). “I wrapped up the Fearless tour with Taylor Swift and Gloriana. I miss those guys.

Your First Look at Glee’s Second Season, Set to the Tune of ‘Empire State of Mind’

Let’s hear it for New York: Vulture can confirm that the first big musical number of Glee’s season-two premiere (airing September 21) will be built around the Jay-Z/Alicia Keys duet “Empire State of Mind.” The reason: Our heroes will be spending this season (or at least a semester) trying to get to Nationals, which are being held in the song-appropriate Big Apple. To underscore this upcoming arc, “Empire” is the centerpiece of the new season’s first footage-filled on-air promo, debuting right here on Vulture (watch it after the jump).

— One Sue Sylvester zing. “Not everyone can be a champion. We need fry cooks and bus drivers, ” she tells Will.

Jane Lynch, my sister, and an exclusive clip conspire to get me hooked on ‘iCarly’

Jane Lynch will guest star as Sam’s mother. We have never seen this character before, but her reputation precedes her! It should be a lot of fun, and you should try to watch. Maybe even do a PopWatch item about it. I’ll let you know what I think of the episode after it airs, but the promos are great!!” [Note presence of double exclamation point as added enticement.] It’s worth mentioning, by the way, that I got Kathy hooked on Glee –and Lynch’s Emmy-winning performance as Sue Sylvester — by insisting she watch the show in reruns this summer.

    Yeh for his album being done. He’s in Nashville right now and will tape the PBS Christmas special with the Celtic singers tommorrow. He’s having fun trying out a lot of different foods and supporting other music artists while he is there.

    Why isn’t David Cook mentioned on Stand Up 2C ???

    I know his name may have been in a print ad but that is no guarantee that he is actually part of the actual TV show – which is why the people in the headlines have been named. (For all anyone knows it could be a leftover ad from the last event).

  4. Up In The Air” is another song that has popped up at ASCAP with David Archuleta listed as a co-writer.

    Just as his first album had a lot of “Hands,” it appears David’s next album will have a lot of “Ups” and “Downs.” :lol:


  5. For all anyone knows it could be a leftover ad from the last event

    I’ve read several articles on this year’s SU2C and haven’t heard Cook’s name mentioned once. Actually, haven’t heard about ANY Idols scheduled to appear. Archie has been mentioned, but only because his fans are fundraising again this year.

  6. I thought I read somewhere today that it was confirmed that Archie was part of this year’s SU2C…let me see if I can find it.
