OFFSTAGE: Former American Idol Contestant Brittany Kerr Apologizes, Too

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Brittany Kerr, the girl seen flirting with Jason Aldean last week at a Hollywood nightclub, has now issued her own apology for the incident that just wouldn’t go away. According to People magazine , the former American Idol contestant said, “The actions I portrayed recently were not a representation of my true character but a lapse in judgment on my part. I would like to sincerely apologize to everyone that has been affected by this, including my friends & family.” Kerr, who was recently a Lady Cat cheerleader for the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats , says her dreams are to sing the national anthem at a professional game and to skydive. Jason, of course, quickly apologized after photos surfaced on the Internet, pointing out that he left the club alone and immediately boarded a tour bus to his next concert.
