Updates: David News and Current Events

For those who would like to keep communication going on Soul Davidian, I’ve created this page for those who have updates on David and music or current events in general.

  1. And when you talk I just watch your mouth

    300 is the official Nielsen SoundScan number. The one on which all charts are based. The one that is used for all artists. The one that no amount of temper tantrums or hissy fits or wishful thinking can change.

    300 copies. Five years of build-up. He sounds better than ever! His songs are better than ever!

    He has silenced his superfans. Crickets. Crickets everywhere.

    Who exactly is “we”? You’re the only one here. Or any other site, for that matter.

  2. OMG. Somebody please warn SD’s French hate follower, Lugdunum, that a member of the sinister cult who call themselves Mormons, has been spotted in Paris. Alert the gendarmes, tout suite !!

    Watch out for this scary looking guy hanging around the Eiffel Tower.


  3. Here’s the latest from David. Pretty impressive, if you ask me.


  4. bliss's bitter bussy

    Here’s the truth that people like Bliss and other cronies don’t seem to understand after all these years. David’s career is dead. He’s tried to become a meme king last year by joking around and doing the Crush video parody, and that wound up getting more attention than anything else he’s posted combined. Then, when he tries to release his first pop album in a long time: it sells dust. 300 copies. Now he’s completed the tour and looking for a Broadway spot.

    I loved David for many years, but there comes a time when his sycophants need to understand that he’s nothing but a nostalgic memory for people. No one comes here anymore or to FOD except for the rabid Trump fraus with no lives like KimK. Someone with David’s demeanor and beliefs won’t last a day in the current political climate in the industry. It may not have been this way when David was on Idol, but celebrities have to engage with the world news on social media to form any kind of relationship worth a damn with their fans.

    David goes dark on social media all the time. He’s doing it right now. His save the world spiel doesn’t work when he’s 27 and comes across like a child with no life experience. No one wants to hear about how golly good God is from someone who hasn’t even been in a relationship, let alone been honest with himself about his own religion.

    I’m writing an essay to air right now because no one (especially not Bliss) will ever get it through their skulls that David is not doing anything worth a damn. His life sounds burdened with so much inner turmoil when he tells the stories about his songs and the industry. Something has made him believe his own emotions outside of the Mormonology are sinful. This boy (because he really isn’t a man) will live out the rest of his life earning residuals from his one nostalgic hit, finding a bride and popping out 2.5 kids in a loveless, lifeless arrangement.

    His fraus (including Bliss) will remain the same because they refuse to man up and tell this child the truth. His own siblings call him their child/5 year old, for Christsake. He’s emotionally stunted from some type of trauma (3 guesses from what) and religion is all he has to fall back on. His life is playing out much the same as other closeted men in religious cults.

    Either way, as a gay man I’m hoping David wakes up. I doubt he ever will.

  5. Has David finally come out?

  6. Umm… bbb, I went to two David shows this past tour and I’m going to have to disagree with much of what you said.

    As a liberal, Haitian American woman who is not religious at all, I had no problem with David talking about God or imparting advice. It’s like anything else – you either take it to heart or you don’t.

    I noticed a lot more men at these David shows than in the past. My husband was one of them. To my surprise, he asked to go to the Pawling, NY show. Unfortunately, I didn’t invite him from the start lol. A lovely Canadian fan had an extra ticket and along he came. He was impressed. The guy can sang.

    David is playing a lot of venues that other former Idols are. He seems to doing better with ticket sales than most of them, from what I’ve seen. That may be sad to some because they’re smaller, but it is what it is. Many, like myself, are just happy he still tours.

    I thought the Crush video was funny and I was pleasantly surprised he did that.

    I disagree celebrities have to engage with world news on social media. I don’t follow that many music artists. Out of the ones I do, JT, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Tori Kelly – only John goes there. I agree with a lot of what he has to say as it relates to political and social issues, but it’s his choice. I don’t require it.

    If David ends up on Broadway, I’m going. It’s a hop, skip and a jump from me. And didn’t Jason Mraz and Brendon Urie (Panic at the Disco) just finish Broadway runs? Are you only allowed to do Broadway if you’re a big music star? You’re desperate, if you’re not?

    We knew David wasn’t for everyone even when he was at his most popular. You just happen to be in that camp now. That’s fine. I’m looking forward to his Christmas album. He said he’s planning a tour and I hope he makes his way east again. I now know to buy a ticket for the hubby ahead of time.

    • I guess our song is over as we begin to sing

      “We knew David wasn’t for everyone even when he was at his most popular.”

      This is so not true. “We” actually thought he would become bigger than The Beatles.

      • Larger than The Beatles? As the song goes – it wasn’t me. lol

        Yes, I had high hopes, but I was referring more to the meanness of some people who focused more on his awkwardness, shyness, lack of street cred, for lack of a better term, than his voice or potential.

        Maybe I was among the few who was irked by it. Who knows. We’re talking 10 years ago now.

  7. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see David during his recent tour. I much prefer his live vocals to his recordings and would jump at the opportunity to see him perform on Broadway. I ignore most of D’s religious tweets as I do with other artists too. I’m African-American and many artist I’ve followed (Whitney, Jill Scott, Fantasia, John Legend, etc.) learned music in the black church and they bring it into their pop/r&b music. I guess I’ve come to accept and expect it.

    Off topic, I’m following the rumors re. Dan Schneider’s firing from Nickelodeon. I hope the rumors are not true. D is still friends w/the 2 young ladies from one of his shows, iCarly.

  8. Just found this site out of nostalgia for Idol. Shocked that it’s been 10 years and this “man” is 27 and still a closeted holy-roller. Still no girlfriend? His peers are married and popping out kids left and right, or at the very least, in committed relationships. Archuleta is so sad. I had a friend that lived in Utah and saw Archuleta frequently through mutual friends and the stories I was told were of the typical repressed little gay boy. The Mormons got him good and brainwashed so he’ll never think of men again until he’s 50 years old and visiting glory holes every night for that anonymous quick fix.

    Archuleta was never popular because he wouldn’t put the fables down and make some music worth listening to. His syncophants were always blowing smoke up his ass, like this bliss queen and the others up above. One quick look at Twitter shows his fanbase is old crusty women and delusional religious nuts trying to be his girlfriend.

    I’ll be back in another 10 years. Hopefully he hasn’t killed himself or been killed by his church. Cult members, the lot of them. What a waste of such a good, pure voice.

    • bliss's bitter bussy

      It’s really embarrassing that another gay man would speak about someone potentially repressed and in the closet like this. I’m gay as the day is long and judging by your slang, you are too, but I don’t act in the way you’re acting right now. Have you ever been in a religious cult? I have, and it’s exhausting to your mind, body and soul. You lose years of your life, your childhood and your adulthood becomes a series of “what ifs” that make you question your position in the universe.

      David found his position nestled in his cozy corner of religious proselytizing and praising his church more than he praises the god he says he worships. I’m extremely harsh on him career and belief wise, but personally, I get it. This is all he’s ever known and when he hit the big bad world, he kicked and screamed his way back into that missionary bubble. He deserved to be checked on Twitter for those homophobic-lite tweets back in the day, but right now he’s quiet. He’s acknowledged and gone to 2 LGBT “friendly” events in the past year. Give him some time. Hopefully, if he is gay, the mood of the church will change and he can come out. Word on the street is, he’s fulfilling the celibacy agreement that the church policy states. But times are changing, and this cult-like church has to get with the times or die out.

      You seem to be a misogynist regarding older women. It’s true that his fanbase is like 80% that as of late, but that shows their support isn’t fleeting like obsessions can be for young kids. I can’t disagree with you on the delusional young girls, but they’re religious and David’s a handsome man. Wanting him as a husband isn’t a bad thing.

      As for the killing himself line: I do think David deals with severe depression and isolation. His self esteem seems to be improving, but much of that is within his relationship with the church’s ideals. I’ve said before that I think he lives a miserable inner life and I agree with that. His music and touring make him happy, but his personal life seems unfulfilling and he’s all but stated that in words and actions. To be 27 with nothing outside of church and music is a disaster waiting to happen. But I don’t think he would resort to suicide, especially with the church teachings.

      I have better things to do than police this dead comment section, but I urge you to have some patience with this man. I don’t know your circumstances, but how many men have been killed or killed themselves because of our sexuality? Don’t forget those acts of violence when you’re living it up in Cabo, hunny. We’re not all out and proud and ready to mingle, regardless of age.

    • Gays hang it up, your idol hates you. He hates anyone that isn’t some God fearing Mormon sheep! He abandoned his fans all of us that’s why his career flopped. Braindead and brainwashed by his nasty father! So godly!

    • Ghost of Bliss

      Hunty you made points sis. Hope you brought this energy to another artist to stan because Archuleta and his fine ass flopped and fell into an early retirement.

  9. What Could Have Been

    The End, just like the career

  10. I see thepedophile still has this site open

  11. 10 years ago Crush was released. We all thought our little Archie would make it big in Hollywood and sing his heart out. Instead he left it all behind to preach a cult and be celibate forever. Who knew he’d be such a braindead brainwashed sheep. RIP Crush the only hit he ever had

  12. He’s having breakdown. Carter in shamble
    Bygblkdk a sad case.

    • Ghost of Bliss

      He’s a total disaster. Mental illness after mental illness. I’ve seen more posts from him tearing his shit up than actual music. His god failed the fuck out him!

  13. Ghost of Bliss

    Damn this site died just like his career did. Missus there’s a reason his IG comments are nothing but gays and house fraus. Time for “Archie” to come out the closet and make him some OnlyFans videos with that bubble butt. But no, he says he’s got “PTSD” from the big bad American Idol. Did Seacrest or Cook stick it up the bunghole and that’s why this mang is so traumatized of sex? Worst closet case celibate little bitch I’ve seen in my 40 years.

    Did kimk/bliss croak? I can hear the death gurgle from my living room. #GloryHolesforArchie

  14. Bliss's stink hole

    That NSYNC video was the gayest Christmas video I’ve ever seen. Every last man in that party was queer as a two dollar bill, Archuleta included. All the top comments on Youtube are about his sexuality, same with that awkward interview he did last month with the Mormons R Us freak. A 28 year old unmarried Mormon? A faggot hunny. We’ve claimed him and that cult isn’t getting him back.

    • Sad to see how far he has fallen. Christmas is all he got and folks seem to be tiring of that. He should forget trying to have a music career, maybe focus on missionary work full-time. Spare himself the humiliation of these sad releases and tired concerts.

  15. Guys is bliss this weird guy on twitter thinking David is going to marry him?

  16. Bliss' Radioactive Penis Pump

    Looks like Bliss has a chance now, Archie came out as “gay, bisexual, asexual” aka “the church has me so hardwired to think I need a woman that I’m going to force myself to be with one”. Honey, from one fag to another, you are full on gay. You came out to your family 7 years ago, you obviously knew then after you hit up the hot daddies over in Chile for that faux mission trip you were on.

    All jokes aside, I gotta give the man credit: never expected him to be open about liking men. Congrats and welcome to the club, now we can give you these gay dollars in PEACE.

    • Lawd what are those biddies on FOD gonna do now?

      • Bliss' Radioactive Penis Pump

        Last I checked, KimK and fellow hausfraus were crying over how he’s been living a lie for the past 20+ years. KimK been on her Twitter for 2 days straight crying about him being fully gay and lying to himself about being asexual when his Instagram from 3 years ago talked about fetishes and porn. FOD is saying it’s good he’s living his “truth in the ways of the Lord”. Meanwhile he’s looking up Daddy-Dom porn and self medicating to cure the faggotry from his bones. At least he’s got Kevin McHale on his side, maybe Artie can teach him how to pick up men at the convent next door.

  17. David's monthly onlyfans bills

    ^ lol I’m cackling! Instantly thought of you guys as I read the “news”. FOD comment section is now a great read – I couldn’t with the girl crying and realizing that everything was a lie. The grannies holding on tight to the bisexual blanket he threw in hopes of getting anything lol

  18. Why does he have such weird fans??? They’re insane. From that Norman Bonk guy on twitter that acts like he has telepathic conversations with David to that Archiebaby12 girl who one day has a huge crush on David to another where she no longer has it cuz she got a bf to then David being the love of her life. Adding to the list Lisa kimk and others i can’t remember their names.
    Have they always been this way? Since idol days?? Poor guy

    • Bliss’ Radioactive Penis Pump

      He has a group of like 20 rabid stans that follow his every move despite him saying he wants privacy. These house fraus will max out every credit card they own to go to his concerts just so they aren’t empty. They even added his entire family to Facebook to keep tabs on him. They’ve been this way for ?13 years now and claim he’s helped them through their lives. 😂 Gurl pls, David thinks you’re all insane and annoying.

  19. Bliss’ Radioactive Penis Pump

    Missed y’all too. This shit is HIGHlarious to me. All the “omg my bi ace king” comments on Twitter from people who only just heard of him. Mormons don’t operate under the same sexuality perimeters that us normies do. This gay to bisexual to asexual pipeline is an attempt for him to exist as a celibate gay man in a church that would punish him if he was openly dicked down.

    Even when he gets ~mixed orientation~ married to some fugly greased up woman, he’ll still be watching “fetish” porn to get himself ready for the 2.5 kids and picket fence life. The old hags on FOD have NO chance of being his milk maid, they aged out of that 30+ years ago.

  20. That GMA interview, i feel for him. He’s still in too deep.

  21. Ok, it’s been a while since I posted here, but I wanted to see if there was recent comments. I’m glad David has come out, maybe that weight of trying to pray the gay away has been lifted. I think he has a long road ahead of him if he want to stay in Mormonism. Yes, they are kind and will be ok with him, as long as he doesn’t have a relationship or marries a man. I just hope he doesn’t settle. He actually left the door open for just that..

  22. Kimk's Anal Polyp

    His church’s law of chastity states he can’t ever have sex or date a man. Watch the full GMA/Nightline interview, this is a grown man in DEEP denial about the harm his church has done to him. He’s afraid to even say the word gay. He really thinks the general public will buy into the bisexual/asexual bullshit when he just said his girlfriend broke up with him because he was too into other men? I smell a cheater. He better get out of that broken church before he takes that “fetish porn” to a whole new level.

  23. I remember how I was so criticized for suggesting that his church’s strict teaching might be the source of his problems, well I guess maybe I might of been on the right track. I can imagine the turmoil he had and really still is going through because how deep he is a believer. I just hope he doesn’t become a poster gay for the church. He seems to still want to be in good standing with the church and he know what that would mean, never experiencing sex or just marry a women. All his fans were so willing to blame his father, the entertainment world, or anything other thing than the church for his problems. Now they are praising him for being honest, but no criticizing the church, interesting.

    • Not a cult member

      Ck, I’ve missed you and your wisdom on the comment section and forum. You and several other OG posters called this from jump, even when other fans gasped and cried foul at the mention of the word gay. I’ve known since he did that North Star conference in 2018 and the LoveLoud promo that he was gay and choosing to live a celibate life to please his church. I believe I’ve actually stated it on here in the past. Good to see you again.

  24. Not a cult member

    In the weeks since his announcement, David has gone on only one secular talk show to do an interview, but he has made the rounds performing at Mormon concerts and singing religious songs of glory. This shows to me that he is once again falling into the trap that we’ve seen from him before, where he digs deep into the religious acts to cleanse himself of a perceived slight. He’ll go silent on social media, then he’ll be back to post more about his mental health. This is the same cycle we’ve seen from him since he came back from his mission (also the time in his life he accepted his sexuality, at least vaguely).

    It is my belief he is being used by the church to be what they wanted Tyler Glenn to be: an example of an openly gay Mormon celebrity that lives a godly life. Aka celibate and essentially neutered. I’ve been expecting this to become an open thing for years, but one thing I didn’t factor in was the bisexual and asexual aspect. Based solely on David’s words, this is not a bisexual or asexual man. This a repressed gay man who is trying desperately to find a wife to prove he’s a good Mormon man, his own desires be damned.

    If you had told me 13 years ago that David would end up like this, I’d be devastated. This is a sad way to live. I only hope that the other gay men he has in his life will lift him up and show him that being gay doesn’t have to be some immoral thing (or whatever his church teaches him). We are human beings with our own lives outside of our sexuality. It’s a shame he can’t live his truth.

  25. Not a cult member, thank you 😊. I agree with you, the church will use David to their advantage. They need him for PR. So sad, David is so deep into the church, he probably thinks it’s a privilege 😞. I just hope he realize that he still can be a believer and not need to be so deep into the Mormon religion.

  26. Liftandlove.org, Pr for the church., yep, that seems the route he his going. 😞

  27. Bliss' Radioactive Penis Pump

    He’s shilling for an LDS “we accept you only if you’re celibate or marry a woman” org like Liftandlove? It’s over. This whole ordeal was a way for him to pretend to live an authentic life while he searches for a woman to fuck over. He’s gonna wind up like his dear dad and cheating in the massage parlor with some twink from Cuba.

  28. I know his most recent ex-girlfriend in real life. She’s not said anything juicy, just said her side will be known soon. She’s not as hardcore of a Mormon as David.

  29. So he had more than one girlfriend? How he was able to keep it from his diehard (pictures etc) fans is a mystery 😂. Hum, I guess now is all about his children’s book about being a good little boy. I wish him good luck with sales.

    After know what he has been struggling with, I now understand why he lost it when he made the announcement he was going on a mission. Makes perfect sense now, why a mission, thought that might fix him, 😞. I’m glad he has made a small step forward, but I’m thinking he has a long way to go. Btw, what’s going on with his music career????

  30. Former Family Friend

    The mission wasn’t going to happen prior to TOSOD album release. The plan was always for him to use his music as a mission for the church. The first album’s content was Jive’s idea, the second album was meant to be a compromise between JA and Jive. The family wanted DA to come home and produce the songs with the family friend in his home studio. Think Christian pop-lite fare. Jive wanted DA in California with pop producers and a sonically similar title track to Crush. DA had no say, it all went through JA.

    The result was a poorly produced, horribly marketed sophomore follow up that flopped on the charts and had no connection to what DA wanted himself. Then he had the gay bar mini scandal and his father’s infidelity, and the writing was on the wall. DA was never his own artist when his dad managed him. Parents had been having marital problems for years (a divorce was filed years prior to Idol), JA “encouraged” DA to go on Idol to fulfill DA’s dream, but it was really his dad’s meal ticket.

    No clue how he’s doing now, I haven’t seen or talked to DA or the family since I left the church in 2014. For the record, I used to post on this website, IdolForums, and occasionally ArchuletaFans back in the day. I was around when ToxicGlitter a.k.a his sister Claudia was spilling her brother’s personal info and photos to gaggles of fans through Myspace and the like. I was never told anything about DA’s sexuality, but I did know he was struggling with something he couldn’t speak about.

    The family was never as normal and pious as they seemed to outsiders. DA had no real chance in the industry. My hope is he leaves the church and his family behind and finds himself a nice husband.

    • Wow thanks for the info!
      I wasnt around in his peak and when i became a fan i didn’t visit forums or any fansites so I’m in the dark about the Claudia situation. Can someone explain?

  31. Former family friend, thanks for the info. I’m still a fan and am liking what he has just released. I still post on the one remaining active (although I’m sure there is others) fan site, although hardly no one comments anymore. 😂 I still want him to have a successful secular career, probably never happen, but what the heck, it might. From what I read, I’m thinking he wants to be in both worlds, following his church’s doctrine and being gay. Don’t know if that is possible.

    If you don’t mind me asking, why did you leave the church? I have believed all along that being such a devout LDS follower, might be the cause of a lot of David’s personal conflict. I guess he can still be part of his church as long as he doesn’t marry a man. I guess either stay celibate or marry a woman. He did leave the door open to that lifestyle. I wish him the best with his career and his personal life.
