"A.I." Johns to Ladies: What's Your Sign, Baby?

3/10/2008 6:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He may have a great voice, but there are still some things coming out of "American Idol" wannabe Michael Johns' mouth that will make you cringe -- his cheesy pickup lines!
Michael Johns
Sources close to the Aussie hunk tell TMZ back in his bachelor days Michael -- seen here in 2005 partying with pals/fans in New Orleans -- used to wow the ladies with his rendition of "Sweet Child o' Mine" at karaoke bars in the Big Easy. We're told when women would come up to Michael to ask if he was single, he would respond with lame one-liners like, "Baby the question is, are you single?"

It's amazing the 29-year-old green card holder ever got married.

For all of you who don't know Mike, trust me, that pick up line would have worked. Aside from that, Mike has a fun and witty personality. He is one of those guys who can and likes to have fun and using cheesy lines is an example. You can't take these media things too seriously as they never truly portray a person. Unfortunately, his time on American Idol doesn't allow the rest of America to see more of his fun personality. On stage in his element, he's a blast.

Of course he is a drunk. He comes to us from the former penal colony downunder. The land that sent us such sensible guy who hanged himself jerking off and the one who thought he could take zanax, oxycontin, vicodin and ambien all at once.

"Oh*No!!!" would do well to avoid stereotyping all Australians by the behaviour of the two he or she is obliquely referring to here, lest we Aussies start to judge all Americans (or him, at least) by the kind of behaviour exhibited by Paris Hilton and the Olsen twins. So the bloke likes to have a few beers and chat up girls - who cares?! That's pretty normal behaviour in any western country.
