Once the season is over, most cast members of American Idol go the route of the child star and disappear from the public consciousness.
But rather than throw in his lot with the has-beens and never-weres that the public so relishes in ignoring, Alex Lambert, a finalist for season nine, has apparently joined the ranks of another group the public does their best not to notice: the homeless.
And, in what is surely some sort of commentary about the way the Internet is changing society, he's tweeting about it. Homelessness 2.0., the dark Bieber.
A recent tweet thread ...
Alright so I didn't want to bring my person life to my fans but I'm about to freak out if I don't tell yall the truth!
Ever since IICD ended I've been kinda homless! Sleepin on the street and behind buildings.I have a choice to stay and persue my career or go
back to texas and not do music! I'm usually a strong person but I can't take it anymore.
I've been goin to coffee shops and other stores so I can tweet to my snaf! Because to be honest! You guys are all I really have!
