Is American Idol contestant Alex Lambert really homeless? The singer made claims via Twitter that he was indeed living on the streets. But it seemed to have been tweets that just got out of control. His manager is pretty confused about the whole thing saying, “He’s not homeless,” Lambert’s rep told EW. “I don’t know where that came from.” He added that “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,” the rep said.
But Alex Lambert did admit he was “an idiot,” and seems to have some twitter regret.
Here is what went down:
He tweeted the following string of messages:
“O my goodness yall! I have been crashin behind buidings and sleepin outside but I don’t want nobody to feel sorry for me! I’m a grown ass man.”
“I’ve had so much help out here in LA! I just want oto 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 yall 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 yall understand.”
“I’m lookin for a place now!! I didn’t mean for it to be this big of a deal!! I regret postin all that! Everything’ll be fine! I know alot of people think I tweeted my living situation for publicity! But I don’t give a damn about fame!”
“I don’t give a damn about money either! I have never had any and I’ve been just fine! The money that I was makin and have made I have sent home for my Mother and my 3 broke ass brothers sleepin on the ground! I just wanted the people that loved me to know what was really goin on I’m real! And I don’t lie! and I would never lie to yall!(yall being my supporters who got my back through thick and thin) F**k yeah I was sleepin outside! That s*%t sucks too! I’m goin back home to get my s%*t together! But I will be back! And I’m comin strong! LETS DO THIS! I didn’t mean to say broke ass brothers! I’m sorry Trenton Trevor and Spencer! I’m gonna stop tweeting now cuz I’m an idiot!
Do you think he’s looking for publicity, attention, is being honest or perhaps an idiot?
