"Homeless" American Idol Alum About To Get Himself Fired!

Filed under: Twitter


Dude, seriously, we'd stop running our mouths if we were you. You're about to get fired!

You'll remember that last week, everyone was appalled to learn that young Alex Lambert, who was a contestant on American Idol last year, was living on the streets in poverty. The young talent took to his Twitter account to tell the world he was homeless, but not sooner were the tweets tweeted did the truth come out. 19 Entertainment, who handles all past, present and future Idols, insisted that Alex has been getting a retainer for all his work on the show and that to their knowledge, he wasn't homeless at all.

The boy should have left the story at that, but he couldn't leave well enough alone. Back to his Twitter he went to, um, clarify what's been going on with him. He posted:

"I just got back on the internet from like a week ago and I'm reading that everywhere! When Do I get this retainer? $$ dude! These guys have been telling the media they been payin me! Makin me look like im lyin! It's a shame dude!"

It really is a shame - a shame that either a grown man is twisting the truth for publicity or that a major corporation is lying through their teeth to save face.

Who should we be waving a finger at? Who?!

Former Idol Contestant NOT Homeless

Filed under: American IdolTwitter


False alarm! Sorry to stir up your sympathies for nothing!

Sources have gotten in touch with 19 Entertainment, one of American Idol's production companies and the management company for many of the Idol artists, to get an update on Alex Lambert, who yesterday, tweeted that he was "kinda homeless."

In response, a spokesperson for the company insisted that Alex is "not homeless" and that the company has no idea "where that came from" since at the moment, they're paying him good money! The spokesperson explained:

“He’s on a retainer, and he’s getting money every month. He’s working on demos. He’s with writers, he’s working on music…He’s not homeless. How could he be texting? How could he be going into recording studio and sleeping on the streets? There’s no record deal yet, but hopefully these demos something could come from that.”

We were curious as to how he was able to tweet as well, but then again, there are so many places to snag free internet around El Lay, we really didn't think much of it.

19 Entertainment isn't the only one trying to clear up this misunderstanding - so is Alex. Though his tweets seemed pretty clear to us, he took to his Twitter several hours later to clarify the "miscommunication." He wrote:

“I’m a grown ass man. I’ve had so much help out here in LA! I just want to do things on my own! I have places to stay I just don’t want to be a burden on anyone! I have money! And soon I will have a place to stay! I just wanted to let y’all know! I’m not some rich spoiled kid! That I’ve had to hustle and grind and I don’t mind sleepin on the street as long as I get my chance! Because I will not take it for granted! I hope y’all understand. Sorry for the miscommunication. I’m just fine!”

Alright then. Super. Glad to hear the back of that Starbucks no longer has an occupant.

Former Idol Contestant Homeless!

Filed under: American IdolSad SadTwitter


This is so sad! He's just so young!

Alex Lambert, who competed last season on American Idol and starred on Simon Fueller's If I Can Dream, took his Twitter yesterday to share some disturbing news - he's currently broke and homeless!

Oh no! Poor thing!

He confessed on his page that he's been struggling for awhile and has finally reached the point of complete helplessness. He wrote:

"Alright so I didn't want to bring my person life to my fans but I'm about to freak out if I don't tell yall the truth!Ever since IICD ended I've been kinda homeless! Sleepin on the street and behind buildings.I have a choice to stay and persue my career or go back to texas and not do music! I'm usually a strong person but I can't take it anymore. I've been goin to coffee shops and other stores so I can tweet to my snaf! Because to be honest! You guys are all I really have!"

Sweetie, you don't sound "kinda homeless" to us.

You sounds like TOTALLY homeless. Sleeping in alleys? Really? How awful!

He continues on to explain that he could go back to Texas, where his family is from, but that would mean giving up on his dream of playing music. He's not sure if he is ready to do that just yet.

Wow. So strong. We hope this story reaches the right person who can help this poor kid out.
