Justin Guarini is setting the record straight after comments he recently made on his website (which is currently down).
On Wednesday, the American Idol runner-up shocked fans with an essay in which he wrote, "I have spent days skipping meals in order to make sure I have enough. To make sure my children, and my wife have enough."
Needless to say, the 34-year-old singer's saddening admission caused a frenzy of media attention. However, Guarini clarified his troubling statement, and even called out one particular outlet, by tweeting yesterday, "Obviously you completely missed the point of my letter @peoplemag. News isn't news anymore, and I'm nowhere near poverty. #twistedmytruth."
