Phil Stacey might be missing the Top 10 Idols Tour to go to Iraq. The 29 year-old new father said that he does have a commitment to the military and even though they have been flexible with his Idol schedule he always could be called up to duty according to his AOL TV Tattler exit interview.
My primary responsibility is to the United States Navy. The possibility exists that they’ll need me for a mission, and if that’s the case, I’m committed to following it through. So far, they’ve been 100 percent flexible and a huge support base for me.
Phil obviously would be quite disappointed, as would his Idol fans that kept him in this long if he got called up.
The last that I spoke to my commanding officer, things looked very promising that I’d be able to go on the tour. I’m not really worried about it at this point. But it would break my heart to not be able to go. But I’ve got a duty and what’s important is that I fulfill my responsibility to the Navy.
I do hope he gets to do the tour. It would be a bit of a buzz-kill if you had to go from being a huge star to a war zone. He also just had a little baby and it would be sad if he couldn’t just enjoy his brief shot at fame with his family.
