Kris Allen: 'I'm pasty'

Kris Allen fans hoping to purchase posters of the "American Idol" champ posing shirtless are going to be sorely disappointed. The singer is still smarting from topless poolside photographs of him that were recently splashed all over the Internet.

"I was pretty upset. It was like, 'Seriously?' " a mortified Allen told MTV News of the pictures, which were snapped in April as he relaxed before a Paradise Island gig in the Bahamas. "I’m pasty," says Allen. "It was rough!"

Thankfully, he wasn’t alone – Allen's younger brother Daniel and band mate Cale Mills also appeared in the skin pics.

"That made me feel better," explains the 25-year-old Arkansas native, "because I was like, 'Cale, you're in here too, buddy. I'm not by myself.' "

    Love Kris! Listening to the interview he was more embarassed than upset. In another interview, he said if he had known about the pictures he would have done more sit-ups. No sit-ups, needed, though. The pictures were great. I liked someone's caption, "this is how an idol gives back..." Seriously, he's a cutie. I love that he's shy and humble in real life, but once he gets on stage, he is confident and HOT ... an amazing musician.

    I like that a person like Kris Allen is a celeb that actually deserves attention, but does not seek it out like how most celebs do just to keep their names in the press.

    He sounds like he was embarrased by the pictures. He'll get it as time goes on but it's funny since many are craving to get that Kind of attention. He sure is a modest guy. Keep being yourself boy!
