David Archuleta Likes Take That, Obsessed With British Pop Charts

Is David Archuleta patterning his life after D'luv? I was stunned to read this Digital Spy interview with little Baby Queen from a week back, as he does promotion in the U.K.:
You've recorded a version of Robbie Williams's "Angels" for the album - and you sang it on Idol too. Are you a big fan of that song?
"Yes, I think it's such a powerful song. It's probably my favourite song to sing actually. I love Take That and Robbie Williams - I actually really want to learn 'Rule The World' by Take That because I love that song too.'"

Take That aren't that well-known in the States. How did you get into them?
"Well, everyone knows that song 'Whatever I said, whatever I did, I didn't mean it...' but they don't know anything else. It's weird. Before American Idol and all this stuff I was obsessed with music charts and I used to go online to find out what was popular in other countries. I'd log on to the BBC website and that's how I found out about artists like Natasha Bedingfield, Daniel Bedingfield and Take That."
Why David Archuleta—are you patterning your life after me? If that's the case, you'll come out of the closet, ditch your music career—in fact, you'll toss aside any ambitions for any kind of lucrative, stable career—and you'll begin writing about music, instead! Yay!

Cut to David deleting Take That, downloading the The Fray.

    There's only ONE D'luv. Thank God for that...not sure the planet could handle another one.

    Oh. My. Days. And. Bless. My. Barnacles. This is the movie 17 Again, with you as the old (er) dude and Archie in the Zac Effron role. Amazing.
