The week began with David finishing up his promotional tour of Asia.  The buzz he created continues …and continues… and continues.

David gave candid interview to The Star, at the Pyramid Tower Hotel, and discussed his second-place finish on American Idol, his vocal paralysis, and touring.  He doesn’t think fame will change him, and says  he’ll never abandon music.  His usual self-deprecation was in evidence, too:

“I never shut up … I’m weird looking.”

Two big stories dominated the latter part of the week in ArchuWorld:

Rumors of a tour with Demi Lovato, and a return to the American Idol stage.  Fans are split on the news of the tour, and the split sparked debate all over the web, including here at The David Chronicles, where a number of our regular columnists chimed in with their opinions. David’s IDF section generated more than 200 pages on the subject since it was first rumored on April 10th. Fans and other observers at mjsbigblog’s comment thread debated the decision as well.

David’s American Idol appearance means that he will miss the first two shows of the UK McFly Tour, where he is scheduled to appear as the opening act.  They explain it quite nicely on their MySpace site.

The Demi Lovato tour rumors were confirmed, and tour dates were posted.

Random bits of adorkableness:

A fan in Malaysia feeds him Chili Padi.

David Happy Birthday in Cleveland… and David vlogs while he an endless airport hallway, bidding farewell to Asia and looking ahead to the UK.

Finally, no week is ever complete without a recommendation.
