As they say in show biz, “The show must go on,” and American Idol’s Phillip Phillips knows this all too well. Despite the recent chaos in his family’s life -- his parents’ divorce announcement, their loss of the family-owned pawn shop, and his mother, Sheryl’s, recent DUI -- the season 11 winner went ahead with the release of the new video for his second single, “Gone, Gone, Gone”.

As The Hollywood Reporter points out, the message of the song is an ironic one, as it’s about people sticking together through thick and thin. Considering his wholesome “aww shucks” super sweet demeanor, it’s hard to imagine, but the rumor has been that P2 was asked to help bail his parents out of their financial troubles, and he allegedly refused to do so.

Have you caught “Gone, Gone, Gone” yet? Ladies, consider this a public service announcement -- watch it below, and thank us later.
