You can’t believe everything you see – or don’t see – on MySpace, says American Idol‘s Brooke White, who blames a technical glitch for the absence of David Archuleta as a “friend” on her page.

“Don’t fret, my dears, David is one of my favorite people on the planet!!!” she writes. “Rest assured, we all are all super-duper friends, like family, actually, enjoying this tour together.”

The 25-year-old fifth-place finalist on last season’s show says only a technical issue has kept 17-year-old runner-up “Archie” from showing up on her “top friends” box. Both are now on an American Idol tour of the U.S. with the other contestants.

“It’s been driving me crazy … and so after going on a search through hundreds of pages of friends … I still can’t find Archie’s official page … along with a few other Idol contestant friends of mine!” White writes. “In time, I will work it out, when I have few spare moments while on the road!”

White says she’s amazed it even became an issue among some fans.

“It’s kinda funny, and/or interesting how seriously people take this MySpace thing,” she writes. “I can’t believe I’m even writing a blog about this, LOL!!!”
