Aspiring singers shouldn’t look to American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis for behavioral inspiration. He’s in the music – not the role model – business.

“I definitely don’t ever want to be considered a role model. I’m just another human being who is passionate about his music and his art. If that’s a role model for something, that’s great, but I have a foul mouth, I’m tactless and have no shame,” Lewis tells the Associated Press. “I’m definitely not your kid’s role model. Maybe for music that’s cool, one thing, but nothing else.”

The 26-year-old has just released his debut CD, Audio Day Dream, which he calls “a journey through some good pop music.” The singer, who finished second to Jordin Sparks in the singing contest last May, co-wrote 12 of the album’s 13 tracks, including the first single, “Break Anotha.”
