David Archuleta
David Archuleta tells PopEater that he's "never been in a relationship," but don't mistake that for immaturity. For a 19-year-old, he sure has a good head on his shoulders, as evidenced by his willingness to take risks and his compassion for others. The former 'American Idol' runner-up just released his latest album, 'The Other Side of Down,' his first musical project on which he has almost full co-writing credits. At this time of the year, the singer's 2009 holiday record 'Christmas From the Heart' also remains on our radar.

When Christmas is brought into the conversation, Archuleta's already chipper demeanor seems to brighten, and a bit of youthful excitement takes hold. "I love Christmas music," Archuleta gushes, bringing some holiday happiness to the morning by singing the classic lyric "It's the most wonderful time of the year." The spirit of the season in mind, Archuleta has a candid -- and fun -- chat with PopEater about the meaning of Christmas, growing up as a 'Glee'-like music geek and how a personal 'The Other Side of Down' track has him wondering about the unpredictability of falling in love.
