David Archuleta On Ice


For those who worry about the gay context in which David’s “Crush” is rumored to be used on the “gayest show ever!!” that is Glee, the latest TV show on Fox Network, all I have to say is: could you get any gayer (or at the very least cheesier) than appearing on an ice-skating program? 

I’m referring to his upcoming appearance in Kaleidoscope, a Thanksgiving ice-skating program special, airing on FOX on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 4 pm EST, and taping this Monday, November 16, at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. at 7 pm. 

Don’t read me wrong.  I like “gay shows” (and cheesy ones too) and anything that puts some bends and curves in the “straight and narrow.” Just saying.  I think some of us fans need to open up and not be so bothered by certain contexts, especially when David himself is very open (and as it turns out, pretty selective) about where he wants to appear and lend his voice.  And it is for a good cause, raising awareness and funds pertaining to women and cancer.  

Since I’ve always loved David’s soft sensitive side, I’m totally excited about his participation and the fact that we get to see him on TV this coming Thanksgiving! (I wonder what he’ll sing.)

Now, if only those rumors about him appearing in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade were also true.
