Castro Weeds Out the Drama During Flightmare

5/17/2008 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jason Castro non-diva in the air"Idol's" Jason Castro lays low while flying high.

Freelance reporter Sue Facter tells us she sat next to Castro on the not one, two, but three American flights it took to get back to L.A. for last week's results show, and says the singer was super chill during the crazazy flight debacle.

After two brutal flights -- one of which included sharing food with passengers because the airline didn't have enough to go around, another ending in an emergency landing, Facter tells us the dread-headed singer didn't pitch any diva fits, and he was totally chill the entire time.

Just like the stoner he says he isn't.

He seems like a decent kid. I liked how after he was voted off he said he couldn't have handled the next week learning 3 songs. He's a good singer but I don't think he's ready to be a star yet.

Like him being hyper would have helped anything at all?

Okay, I get it. He didn't act like a hoodlum and fight over the food, so that makes him a stoner.

I guess he should have acted like a diva, just like Harv would have.

Disgusting    


American Airlines and US Air seem to have the most problems, mechanical, accidents, crazy staff etc. of all the airlines. They are totally indifferent to passengers - it's like it or lump it. Both have some craaazy employees.

Jason is a real Christian , so he's high on faith , not weed. All the bad stuff that comes his way ( stupid judges, bad flights, the stoner rumors), he just brushes it off like dandruff from his dreads. Rock on Jason and God bless you.

I wish you people would stop calling Jason a stoner. Like to stereotype much? Just because he is a laid back individual and has dreads, does NOT make him a stoner. You make me sick with your comments. He's answered this question many times. He has never done pot! So, get over your stupid selves.

Sounds like he's a lot more intelligent and mature than the freelance reporter.

So what you're telling us is Jason Castro is a great person!!!! He's exhausted from the non-stop interviews he's done since leaving American Idol, he's been making appearances on both coasts, he's rushing to get back to LA for more appearances and then gets delayed in a flight nightmare and he's calm, cool, collected and being nice to people! Jason handles himself beautifully in public. He's on the verge of becoming a huge star but still acts like a normal person..in fact, he acts better than a normal person---most of us would have lost it during all those flight problems! I suppose we fans should "Thank You" for pointing out to the world how wonderful he is!!!!
P.S. He has been asked by a magazine about drugs and stated flat out "I have never been high!". Jason is nothing if not honest (as evidenced by his reactions on American Idol). The mellow-thing is just his personality....he does not do drugs.
