David Archuleta Praises Jeff Archuleta

by at . Comments

Over the weekend, David Archuleta was pressured into praising his father, Jeff Archuleta, for the world to read. So we assume, at least.

After summarizing his Father's Day plans, David wrote the following on his MySpace page:

"Thanks everyone for wishing my dad a happy Father's Day. I really appreciate that and I know he does as well. He's been great so I'm glad you guys took time to send him your messages. Hope everyone else's dads had a great time, too!"

Did Jeff Archuleta force his son to write a positive blog about him? It wouldn't shock us if so.

The elder Archuleta was banned from appearing backstage on American Idol earlier this year, following an incident in which he screamed at show producers for not allowing his son to change lyrics on a song; he's been referred to many times as a controlling stage dad.

The 17-year-old David has always stood by Jeff's side, however.

Meanwhile, fans will get a chance to see the singer do what he does best during the upcoming American Idol Idol tour, while David will also release a debut album in the fall.
