‘American Idol’ Finalist Caleb Johnson Apologizes For Slur.He Said

Caleb Johnson apologizes for slur. He is an American Idol finalist on the thirteenth season and he is getting some feed back as one of his post show interviews has gone viral. He is also lead singer of a rock ‘n’ roll band known as Elijah Hooker and as he spoke to After Buzz TV last week about his opinion of social media, he said that he resented that he had to perform the song “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith, a song in which he said he dislikes. He gave feed back to his followers who supposedly regularly spam his Twitter feed with unwelcome song suggestions.

To dis his superfans (i.e., the people most likely to SuperVote for him) was foolish enough. But his politically incorrect wording made the situation much, much worse.

“[Twitter] gives access to a bunch of retards to talk to me,” Caleb said, astonishingly. “I don’t really enjoy having to see somebody telling me what song I have to sing. I think at this point of the competition, I can pick and choose my own songs and represent me. I don’t need 10,000 people saying, ‘You should sing this, you should sing that. Listen to me!’ Fortunately, guys, I’m going to listen to myself, whether you like it or not.”

Obviously, the use of the dreaded “R-word” under any circumstances would have been offensive and unacceptable. But the fact that Caleb seemed to be directing this slur at engaged, well-meaning fans (as opposed to “haters”) was simply baffling… and it was possible career suicide, with the finale and a record contract only three weeks away.

Although Areosmith’s hit didn’t go well for him, he did very well with Whitesnake’s ‘Still of the Night’ a fan request, he even a good remarks by Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale — on Twitter!) However with the remark he made, fans took to Twitter to vent their anger and disappointment over what Caleb had said.

On Saturday afternoon, Caleb addressed this controversy on his Facebook page (but not on Twitter), posting:

“For the record that juvenile comment I made in the interview was not directed towards my fans but to the wackos that send hundreds of hate messages a day to me! You guys are amazing and I cannot thank you enough for your support. Sorry if it offended anybody it was the wrong choice of words. Also I greatly appreciate it when you guys give me song suggestions but it gets really overwhelming at the volume it comes in so please understand ! Rock on !:)”

Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo have married. She is a singer-songwriter, who had appeared on the reality show American Idol and Young is an American singer-songwriter also from the Reality Show. the couple were joined by friends and family. They said their vows together on Saturday evening at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard hotel in Los Angeles, PEOPLE confirms.

“Today was the best day of my life,” Young, 32, tells PEOPLE. “Diana and I are in it forever. She’s my best friend.”

Twenty five year old Degarmo was wearing a form-fitting Sareh Nouri gown with pearls and rhinestones.

“It was the first dress she tried on,” says Renée Strauss, the LA-based luxury bridal expert who organized the wedding. “She knew immediately that it was the perfect dress for her.”

The dress was accessorized by a beaded belt, custom veil, and blue cowboy boots. “If you didn’t know better, you’d think the dress and boots were made for each other,” says Strauss. Adds DeGarmo: “Believe it or not, the boots totally worked!”

The wedding colors were purple and yellow. Young wore a custom-made box suit with a crest designed by Strauss: the couple’s monogram with “Forever Young” emblazoned underneath.

“They wanted to put their personal touch on the wedding,” says Strauss, who has also coordinated weddings for Heather Locklear and Valerie Bertinelli. “We all worked together to make sure every detail was special.”

The ceremony began with six flower girls – all nieces of DeGarmo and Young – walking down the aisle with baskets of flower petals. Each basket had a different word on it, spelling out a message to the groom: “Hey Ace. Here Comes Your Bride.”

A harpist played the Wedding March as DeGarmo walked down the aisle. The wedding was officiated by music writer Fred Bronson. After the couple exchanged vows that they wrote themselves, they walked back up the aisle to the strains of Led Zeppelin’sAll of My Love.”

Their were two hundred and fifty guests in attendance, which include Idol finalists Elliot Yamin, Michael Johns and Kevin Covais. Several of DeGarmo‘s costars from The Young and the Restless also attended, including Christian LeBlanc and Tracey Bregman.

Following the ceremony, the guests headed to the reception. On the menu: filet mignon, chicken, salmon or pumpkin ravioli. There were two wedding cakes: a traditional vanilla, and a banana chocolate chip. The couple recorded an original song entitled,

 ”I Do” for their first dance.
