David Archuleta Lost Control of His Life on ‘American Idol.’ He Came Out as Bisexual to Get It Back

It was round two of the semifinals on Season 7 of “American Idol,” and David Archuleta had just closed the Feb. 28, 2008, episode with John Lennon’s “Imagine.” The performance — a master class in immaculate pop vocal precision — earned the then-17-year-old wild screams from the tween and teen girls in the studio audience and instant raves from the judges. Randy Jackson told Archuleta he was “born to do exactly what you’re doing.” Paula Abdul gushed that he was “destined for superstardom.” And Simon Cowell proclaimed, “Right now, you’re the one to beat.”

In that moment, with his father, Jeff, beaming from his seat just feet away, Archuleta knew he should be nothing but grateful for the praise. Instead, one thought kept drumming through his head: “I don’t want to be here anymore.”

He didn’t understand why those girls were screaming, let alone why tens of millions of people would vote for him week after week — ultimately catapulting Archuleta to the finale, where he would finish second to David Cook. He didn’t understand, either, why older male fans kept yelling at him to come out already, or why his own father would tell him about online speculation about his sexuality like it was hot gossip. He was overwhelmed by the unrelenting schedule. He hated being pitted against other singers. He desperately missed his family back home in Utah. Fundamentally, Archuleta didn’t know that he wanted any of this at all.

“I felt so disconnected from everything,” he says now, perched on his publicist’s couch on a scorching Los Angeles day in October. “Like, 13 years later, I’m piecing together what actually was going on. But it’s still a process because I still don’t understand why people were so into it.” Now 30, the singer breaks into a nervous laugh familiar to anyone who watched him on “Idol.”

“I think I was just in protection mode the whole time,” he says. “If anything, I was putting a wall between me and everyone else.”

Last June, Archuleta tore down that wall with an Instagram post in which he came out as being a member of the LGBTQIA+ community. The decision came after Archuleta — a lifelong and devoted member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — says God told him to share his story with the world, and Archuleta obliged by picking up his phone, writing the post and sending it without telling anyone in advance other than one of his sisters. Archuleta instantly became one of the most high-profile members of the Mormon faith to be openly LGBTQ, which has put him at odds with his church’s prohibition against acting on same-sex attraction — although Archuleta’s asexuality, which he also revealed in the Instagram caption, has made that particular hurdle a bit less onerous to navigate.

Still, it’s a journey that has been both bewildering and excruciating, pushing Archuleta to the brink of his religious beliefs and his desire to live at all. In a nearly three-hour conversation with Variety, it’s also clear that Archuleta’s coming-out post was the latest, most significant step in his decade-long struggle to wrest back the control of his life — and career — that he believes he lost that fateful February day on the biggest TV show in America.

When Archuleta was on “Idol,” he was perpetually abashed and tongue-tied, straining to string together a few sentences even when host Ryan Seacrest tossed him the easiest softball questions. As an adult, he does not have that issue. He’s retained his boyish, aw-shucks charm, but his words now tumble out of him, undaunted by even the most personal disclosures.

“My parents never talked to me about puberty,” he says. “I didn’t know what wet dreams were. I didn’t know what arousals were. I didn’t know that hair was going to be growing in parts of my body. All that was foreign to me. I didn’t know. And so I was freaking out.”

Archuleta says this by way of explaining his understanding — or, rather, his utter lack of it — of what being gay means as the second oldest of five siblings in a Mormon family that was increasingly frayed by his parents’ disintegrating marriage. He was home-schooled for most of his childhood, especially after his father began showing off Archuleta’s natural gifts as a singer: on “The Jenny Jones Show” at 11, on “Star Search” at 13, and as soon as he was eligible, auditioning for “Idol” at 16.

Looking back, Archuleta says his time on “Idol” was “miserable” and “traumatic.” Most of his fellow finalists, he says, had some kind of nervous breakdown at some point during the season. And yet he winces every time he speaks ill of the show.

“I get afraid to blame things on ‘American Idol,’ because something in me is programmed to say, ‘I have to be grateful, because where would I be without it?’” Archuleta says. “But at the same time, I’ve talked to other ‘American Idol’ contestants about how we all have trust issues. Like: ‘You can’t trust anyone anymore, not even your own family.’ That’s what we were told. It was like some weird grooming process, from the very first audition, the way that they were speaking to us, kind of like, ‘You’re powerless little bugs. If you step out of line, then you’re out of here, and you’re going to lose this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.’”

When reached for comment by Variety, former “American Idol” executive producer Nigel Lythgoe does not dispute Archuleta’s account. “I had a wonderful time working with David and was totally unaware of his grievances,” Lythgoe says in a statement. “I’m so sorry he has a bad recollection of his experiences on the show. He did so well in the competition, and his battle with David Cook provided an extremely exciting Finale.”

Archuleta’s father did indeed become a difficult presence as his son’s star began to rise on the show, but when Archuleta confided in “Idol” staffers about it, somehow his concerns wound up on TMZ. “Anything to make it look like my dad is this evil man and poor little helpless David,” Archuleta says now with far more anger than he ever allowed himself on “Idol.”

It was destabilizing in the extreme, and scarcely could have happened at a worse possible moment for a queer Mormon kid with a million questions about himself and no one he felt he could turn to for answers.

“It’s been quite a journey for him to just know who he is,” says Melinda Doolittle, who came in third on Season 6 of “American Idol” and befriended Archuleta. “When you do something as transformative as ‘Idol’ when you’re still figuring it all out, sometimes it’s very easy to let other people figure it out for you. So I’m really proud of him for shutting that noise out.”

In December 2011, Archuleta announced he would spend two years serving a Mormon mission in Chile. It was, he says with a chuckle, an act of “rebellion” against the unceasing pressure he felt from all sides to transform his popularity on “American Idol” into a viable — and lucrative — music career, at the cost of any personal life or self-awareness. His first single, “Crush,” went double platinum, and yet Archuleta had never once had a crush of his own.

“It was not a feeling I ever allowed myself to feel,” he says. From his earliest memories, his only conception of a relationship between two people was the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman that is the foundation of the LDS faith. (Unbidden, he breaks into the unironically titled Mormon hymn “Love Is Spoken Here” to illustrate: “I see my mother kneeling with the family each day … with father and mother leading the way.”) When he was a kid, any flutters of feeling for, say, an animated Disney prince were immediately tamped down. By the time he was old enough to examine them, Archuleta was a household name with a major recording contract and a worldwide tour to support it.

Bisexual ???

“I naturally kept dragging my feet,” he says. “I know it was very difficult, because they’re like, this is a good kid, he’s talented, but he’s not reaching his potential as an artist, because he’s not willing to record the songs that will get him to where he can be successful. But I don’t want to be successful if it means I’m not going to have any time to process what I need to as a human being.”

His next album of originals, 2010’s “The Other Side of Down,” fizzled out, and Jive dropped him the following year. He was, at last, free to go on his mission. Just about everyone in his life was unhappy. He was thrilled.

“I need quiet and alone time, and from the moment ‘American Idol’ auditions began when I was 16 to when I was 21, I never had that,” he says. As he lived and worked in Chile in a mission just south of Santiago, he had the space to begin to look at himself and recognize his attraction to other men. And yet, by the time Archuleta sat down with his mission president in Chile to finally come out to someone, he was still so disassociated from his own life that he couldn’t remember why he’d made the appointment. He had to refer to his journal to remind himself.

In 2014, he came out as gay to his family, who responded well, but that didn’t quite feel right either. He still felt some attraction to women — and, more crucially, the gravitational pull of the Mormon church’s singular devotion to heterosexual families.

“I thought, like, I may be attracted to guys, but eventually, I’ll be able to make marriage work because that’s just how it is,” he says. “Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained by God. That’s the standard. I’ve been trying all my life to fit that standard and make it work.”

So Archuleta began dating women and ignoring his interest in men. He also knew that while his attraction to both genders was real, his sexual drive was not like that of other men he knew, gay or straight; he needed a close, intimate connection first. It was certainly helpful in keeping to the LDS tenet of chastity before marriage. But the elemental lack of trust drilled into him on “Idol” had become as bone deep as his conviction that he had to marry a woman to be happy.

The combination proved untenable: Letting anyone get truly close meant exposing a side of himself he’d been taught was incompatible with living a godly life, and the seething anger and resentment that were stoked in Archuleta terrified him. His life was still not truly his own, and after a relationship with a girlfriend fell apart in May, he found himself in an especially dark place.

“I felt like I was burying a body and it wouldn’t ever die, because it’s me,” he says. “[I was] getting to the point of, like, if I need to bury this, I need to bury myself with it. I was thinking it was better off for me to not even exist, because I don’t want to be a way that God doesn’t want me to be. At that point, I was like, if He’s not there, then why does this even matter?”

At his home in Nashville, he fell to his knees and began a prayer he’d made countless times before: “God, please take this away from me. If you’re there, and if you really have a plan for me, please change me. I know you can change things. You could change water into wine! You can change me.”

Archuleta, his eyes cast in fervent concentration on the floor, says this all in one unbroken thought: “And I finally heard Him, the way He’s always answered me. The way I knew I needed to go on my mission, the way I needed to go through with ‘American Idol’ even though I didn’t want to. He just said, ‘David, you need to stop asking me this. You’re asking me the wrong thing. You need to stop asking me to change you in a way I don’t intend to change you. I intended to create you this way, and now you need to understand why. And you need to take the time to understand it.’”

He stops to catch his breath. “I was just kind of like, What? I was not expecting God to tell me something that I didn’t think was godly, you know?”

by Anonymousreply 3December 9, 2021 9:24 PM

A month later, Archuleta came out on Instagram, announcing that he is on “a spectrum of bisexual.” Given how hideous the internet can be, he worried he’d opened himself up to a torrent of hate, but he says both online and in his life, the vast majority of responses have been supportive. In his local LDS congregation in Nashville, in fact, several people have since come out to him.

“I realized there’s so many of us, but they’re invisible,” he says. “That’s when, OK, I see now why I was put where I am, and why I need to speak up.”

He’s already started. After Jeffrey R. Holland, an LDS elder and former president of Brigham Young University, gave a speech at BYU in which he called for “more musket fire” in defense of the church’s stance on same-sex attraction and marriage, Archuleta responded with a lengthy video post to Instagram asking for more “hard conversations” and better understanding between LDS leadership and the LGBTQ community.

He’s reticent to talk much about his dating life, but he allows that he’s beginning to grasp that his bisexuality manifests in an attraction to androgyny in both genders. “Maybe I shouldn’t … ” he says to himself before diving in with a wide, toothy grin. “There are a lot of very attractive lesbians — the ones who, like, have a masculine energy to them.”

Archuleta’s music career is also in full gear; he’ll go on a COVID-postponed tour next year to promote his 2019 album, “Therapy Sessions.” And he’s in the middle of a series of Christmas gigs, including a performance in Texas with the Turtle Creek Chorale, a predominantly gay men’s chorus — a first for Archuleta (whose 2010 performance with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on the church’s holiest night has garnered millions of views on YouTube). He expects there will be a lot of that kind of thing in his future.

“This is still new for me, but I feel good about it,” he says. “I don’t have to be someone else. I’m just holding this part of me with more grace and without shame. I don’t feel like I have to hide anything anymore. And it’s such a relief.”

The song below plays on a loop because they think giving a platform to a NeverMo and someone “suffering from same-sex attraction” to sing about Jesus shows the world how inclusive and open-minded the church truly is. You know, as long as you overlook that tiny little blip known as Prop 8.

[R65] That would probably be me (or the other ExMo who was a frequent poster). I called this even before he came out. After his first North Star conference, there were rumors going around that he had come out as a "victim" of SSA and had basically signed a celibacy contract. In the church, if you're gay, you either enter into a 'mixed-orientation marriage' or remain single for life. It seems like he was on the path of the latter, but now he's in the public eye and hinting at the former. The mention of 'attraction' to butch lesbians clues me in on the future lavender marriage prospect.

But if he claims he's bisexual and asexual to the public, that stops the secular news from canceling him entirely while appealing to his new base of Gen Z that found him on TikTok. I've already witnessed several fights in his comment sections about how problematic it is to call him gay when he's supposedly bisexual. He came out as gay to his family nearly a decade ago. He says he has to force attraction to women, hence the asexuality line. Yet he's admitted to checking out men while in a het relationship and being "addicted" to porn. Spare me the bullshit.

I don't understand why so many DLers trust his path right now. The only way I'll believe this is his genuine independent feeling is if he leaves the church and puts in the work the rest of us did to deprogram ourselves.

I'm the other ExMo. I'm the one who said he was doing an event to kick off BYU's Office of Belonging weeks before it was announced and who may or may not have a gossipy family member high up. It was interesting to be corrected by people whose only knowledge of the subject is typing "sister wives...virgin hole...green Jello...magic underwear, lolz" ad nauseam.

But I'll say it again:

When you recite North Star's talking points in secular interviews and always point out the loving kindness of the church while leaving out the part where your only options are marrying a woman or being alone for the rest of your life...

When, in one of these interviews, you accidentally stray from the script and admit to having dated men, and then that sentence vanishes within 24 hours and is replaced by something from the playbook…

When your book is put out by an LDS publisher whose sole purpose is bolstering the "inclusive" facade that half of the GA are trying to force in order to keep the young-and-dim paying their 10% while also making the general public wonder if they're actually misremembering how Prop 8 went down...

When your book display is front and center at the entrance of Deseret Books...

When you're the face of the Office of Belonging and headliner of its Belong concert and you don't say a word when kids are turned away for wearing rainbow/pride shirts...

When, after Elder Holland's "take up muskets because a house divided cannot stand" talk and what it unleashed (see below), your first instinct is to run straight to Stories and explain that Holland was "coming from a place of love"...

If you can claim even one of those things, you're not some free-thinking maverick who's sticking to the church; you're a marionette.

[R69] Took the words right out of my mouth. I'm not sure if we're the only two ExMo's on this forum, but it's clear that we're not the only ones seeing through these shenanigans. One of his biggest Trump-loving fraus on Twitter has agreed that this whole media tour is spearheaded by the Mormon church to capitalize on Gen Z and try to get them into the fold. "See, the church IS loving toward same sex attract- oh I mean LGBTQIA+++. I've never felt so accepted as when I came out as GAY then went back to dating women for years, fucking up their lives and becoming suicidal, but let me just gloss over that part." That's what he sounds like to me. I've tried for months to justify it from his headspace, but when he's working with gay conversion organizations like North Star on a routine basis, how the fuck am I supposed to feel sympathy when he is deep in the system and ACTIVELY doing harm?

I don't doubt that his coming out was his own idea and that he HAS been struggling, but there's no way he's doing this without backup. He never one time mentioned Charlie Bird until a couple weeks before they suddenly were meeting up for the BYU bullshit fest, now that's over and they don't follow each other or mention each other. That's another LDS sycophant that deserves his own thread of shame imo.

Then his CDs got autotuned. I don't know the correct terminology, but the technicians made David's voice sound hollow and tinny, with each note "gliding" into the next. He was produced like an old Cher who needed the sweetening---but he didn't.

Predictably, the CDs didn't set the world on fire. Then came his Mormon mission, and we see where David is today.

I met him at an extremely brief M&G where I said, "Be true to yourself." He replied, "Always." At the time David might even have believed it.

Ex-Mormon here, still have contacts from inside. I heard that David is still actively trying to date women and is not happy that he was moved out of the YSA ward due to his age. His youngest sister just got married herself, so he's probably having a quarter/midlife crisis.

I have to agree with [R117], if he doesn't kill himself in his 30s, he'll become an abusive spouse to a woman. This is a cautionary tale on why Mormonism is a cult and toxic for gay men.

by Anonymousreply 131January 11, 2022 11:16 PM

He doesn't have many options:

1) the indignity of aging out of the YSA ward and getting shunted into the family ward—empty handed after 12 years to get it right—while everyone tsk-tsks and whispers about what a shame it is that he once had everything going for him and look at him now.

2) the even greater indignity of joining one of those unofficial single-adult (31 and up) meet-ups who team up and stick together like a school of small fish in a sea of predators, stupidly telling themselves that as a group they don't stand out as much. See the photo below for what's in store should he choose this option.

3) going back to Utah, or anywhere with a legit Single Adult (31-45) ward, in which case he'll be one of a handful of incels and widowers outnumbered ten-to-one by the female version of incels, widows, ex-wives of the gay men who wised up and got out, and women in their forties fighting it out to land one of those incels and widowers before they get the boot at 45.

I'm almost certain it hasn't changed since ~2010. The judgment if you're unmarried at 31+ is ENORMOUS, I don't think people on DL will grasp just how shunned you feel.

Forty-five only matters in a geographical area with enough single active members aged 31-45 to support a Single Adult ward. The closest one to Nashville is Chicago.

When there's no Single Adult ward, thirty-one year olds get booted from the Young Single Adult ward (18-31) to their regular ward, which will be full of married couples with children; older married couples whose children have moved on to a YSA ward; and newlywed couples with children on the way.

They don't want failures in their midst, and an unmarried 31-year-old making the walk of shame back to a regular ward is the epitome of failing. I can't overstate how repulsed they are by this.

A ward is the same as a congregation, but membership is determined by home address. There are two-hour services every Sunday.

[R131] here, I'm not shocked at what just happened with his IG live. It all makes sense why he was trying to stay in YSA ward, he was trying desperately to find a space in a church that is actively showing him how much of an outsider he truly is. If anyone in his life actually gives a single fuck about him, they would step in immediately and shut down this tour. Get him away from the Mormon crap and surround him with people who will ACTUALLY listen to him. Kevin McHale claims to be friends with him, where the hell has he been? Or did the church keep him away too?

David does not need to be going on a tour right now, I don't care what he says about keeping busy. These fraus will show up in droves to minister to him during the M&Gs he has.

[R164] You don't have to trust him, I don't either. But I watched the whole thing, and he starts crying and questioning the church in ways that are just... not allowed. He was asking questions like: why are hetero couples are allowed to adopt and their children be anointed but gay couples can't, why is it okay to pick and choose parts of the bible to fit your narrative, etc. He's really upset about gay couples not being able to get married in the church, and when he addressed it recently with someone in the church, he was told that he could maybe date a man but keep it quiet and marry a woman in the future. That's a big no-no.

For anyone with no LDS knowledge, just know that his previous talks and videos have been relatively church-approved because he's a celebrity, but this video absolutely was not. You don't bring up questions and criticisms like he did in the public eye. Mormons that are still in the church are refusing to talk about it, and he'll probably be punished for it.

R166, they sent the missionaries home and started livestreaming early in March of 2020. The livestreams continue and temples are limited and by appointment only. In-person meetings exist as a place for those who worship the orange prophet to challenge the prophets they profess to believe in:

No guns allowed inside the building? They walk in with guns and a copy of the Constitution.

Big LDS social media moguls with tens of thousands of followers are now condemning him and saying he turned his back on god. Like we said before, his video would not be accepted by the church like his others have been. He has to make a stand now. When Deseret (his own book publisher) turns their back on you, it's over.

[R185] Nothing much, just him replying with emojis and supporting people on big ExMo TikTok accounts that reposted his videos. He's clearly aware of that side, but normally acknowledging it is a big no.

Would his therapist likely be a Mormon?

[R190] They misrepresented the whole story in favor of the church. I'd argue that the church is doing their own form of damage control to make it seem like David is just another lost and delusional sinner through the press.

Is David engineering for them to push him before he jumps?

This is an ExMo, DezMo, and secular-media story. Deseret News hasn't mentioned it and the ProgMos who were falling all over themselves to praise him for his stunning bravery and the church for its loving kindness during his book promotion have gone silent.

Anyone see his shoutout to Trevor Project where he said he talked to someone from the hotline? He really is suicidal out here.

David is a homosexual.

[R195] He's finally understanding that now. The bisexual-asexual garble was for the Mormons. Once he's left that shithole, we'll see him reclaiming the gay label and actually living.

Said everyone but his teen girl and frau fans the first time he appeared on AI.

He left Utah years ago.

[quote]David does not need to be going on a tour right now

I have a ticket with meet and greet that I bought two years ago for this multiple postponed tour, so yes he does.

R199 Go easy on him

Slow and easy

[R199] You better take one for the team and shower him with ~love~ so the fraus don't get too close. Is he still doing the WeHo date? I may fly in if so.

The tour starts there, February 7th.

[R204] Oh fuck, I didn't realize it was that soon. He should do a virtual meet and greet.
