Kris Allen fans at a Hershey, Pa., hotel over the summer were in for an eyeful if they happened to be roaming the halls in the wee hours of the night. That's because the singer, 25, got locked out of his room stark naked while sleepwalking.
Allen told MTV that he awoke at 2 a.m. to suddenly find himself outside his bedroom.
"The bad thing was I went to bed that night in the buff. So I am locked out of my room, butt-naked," he said, adding that he searched the halls for room-service napkins and tried to break into the gym so he could cover up with a towel. No such luck.
Ultimately, Allen found a phone and called the front desk to come to his rescue.
"I'm waiting for the guy to come. I'm kind of bent over a little bit [peeking around a corner looking towards the elevator]," he recalls. "For some reason, the guy comes up from behind me and so he sees everything. From behind, which is not cool."
The man let Allen into his room, and the "American Idol" winner apologized to him when they encountered each other – fully dressed – the next day.
"He goes, 'Nice night last night, eh?' And I'm like, 'Oh, dude, I'm sorry.' I'm deeply sorry that he had to see that," says Allen. "Man parts are not meant to be seen out in the open."
