American Idol winner Caleb Johnson has some things to say about the show that made him a star; and they’re not all nice things.

First, after he won, back in 2014, he released the single, “As Long As You Love Me.”  Now, he says he “hated singing it; and the song was a cheesy piece of crap.”

Caleb won the competition for season 13.

He has since put out two albums.
