Chords of Strength: Chapter 10, “Staying True”
by goldstar, Archuleta Fanscene
31 July 2010

Chapter 10′s opening quotation is “Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are, to some extent, a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it, piece by piece.” –H.J. Brown

David devotes a whole chapter to the concept of staying true to yourself and how important that is for your personal development and your life.


Teen Choice Awards Fashion Face-Off: David Archuleta vs. Greyson Chance
from The Hollywood Gossip (THG)
9 August 2010

Throughout the day, THG has posted a number of Fashion Face-Offs based on celebrity appearances at the 2010 Teen Choice Awards…But this is the first time we must give our readers a warning: do not attempt to reach into your computer screens and squeeze the cheeks of the following two competitors…We understand this urge when it comes to David Archuleta and Greyson Chance, but please try to resist. THG bears no responsibility if anyone gets injured attempting such an endeavor.

Who looked cuter at the Teen Choice Awards—David Archuleta or Greyson Chance?

How can a 19 year old be compared to a 14 year old? I supposed it’s just in fun, but I hope young Mr. Greyson wasn’t hurt that Archuleta’s fans voted for him overwhelmingly. Greyson is certainly very cute and adorable, but I wouldn’t ‘squeeze his cheeks or Archuleta’s’. Don’t older people know that young people HATE that!?

    I was hoping to see a video of David receiving his TCA award since they didn’t show it on the TV show. What a downer that was, especially since I tuned in just to see David get his award. He never seems to get any breaks, even when he’s winning. He deserves so much more AND so do we, his fans. They seem to forget there’s a lot of us.

    I agree, seems they could have shown the presentation but there are many big names who have gotten the same thing happening because of show time and stuff. Thanks for the buzz!

    Rose and WG, thanks for your comments. I got lucky this year and tuned in just as they were announcing David!

    Like many awards shows, the number of awards has grown so much that the producers don’t have enough air time. Maybe they ought to have more shows or fewer categories.
