"Mental note to self: always ask where before you go!"
That's among the lessons "American Idol" runner-up David Archuleta tweeted after gossip blogs caught hold of his weekend visit to Club 57 at Providence, a gay hot spot in New York.
Via Twitter, Archuleta maintained he was only there to see a performance by his friend Charice, a female singer from the Philippines.
"Wasn't my kind of place lol, and I had no clue! I guess you live and learn," Archuleta tweeted.
Never miss a local story.
In the incident's aftermath, Charice jumped to Archuleta's defense via Twitter, writing, "David went to see me there perform as a friend."
