THE X FACTOR, Geo Godley

Geo Godley has gotten a lot of heat for his stomach churning (if you're Paula Abdul, that is) performance on Simon Cowell's The X Factor," but he wants to make one thing clear—he wasn't naked!

"I was covered up," Godley tells E! News. Godley, the adopted son of an ex-U.S. ambassador, said he was wearing a G-string, but you couldn't tell from the way editors censored the performance.

So why did he take off his pants in the first place?

"It was just for novelty! It's my best song, and it's well suited to do what I did," Godley says. "If I had done a romantic song, that would have been inappropriate." He said it was a calculated to take off his pants and flaunt the G-string. "It wasn't a last-minute thing. The only thing is that I didn't want to show my behind!"

Godley wrote the song, "I'm a Stud," 10 years ago. He said he's been making music for over 30 years, but this was his best song. He insists he wasn't making a joke out of the performance. Well, at least not entirely.

"I invested a lot of money in producing that song. It's on iTunes. I took it very seriously, as well as joking about it. I consider it a good song and a hit—it could be a hit if I get it out there. It was a serious attempt to sell it," Godley said.

Godley said he doesn't regret the incident, but he doesn't like all the negative comments he's getting on his Youtube channel.

"When I saw the comments accusing me of indecent exposure to minors, that's just not the case. And that's a crime, so obviously anyone would be concerned about that," Godley said.

Godley says despite the judges' reaction to his performance, he will keep on making music.

"Yes, but I don't just want to limit myself to music," Godley said.

"I just want to be a successful Youtuber and blogger. If you don't get a break, you're screwed," he said.
