Top 13 American Idol contestant Adam Lambert is allegedly gay. So? Didn’t most of us American Idol viewers realize that? But when Adam Lambert began stirring up a stink on the internet in the first week of March 2009, with certain photos of him kissing some fellas, some people began going into shock. My opinion on the subject is this: Whatever blows your skirt up, Adam. However, will this internet incident affect Lambert’s chances of actually winning American Idol?
The photos of Adam Lambert and another unidentified guy kissing (um, tonguing?) and another colorful smooching photo can be viewed here. Evidently, the photos were taken at the “Burning Man” arts festival in California. This day and time being gay is no big deal, compared to years gone by when men or women felt they had to hide their sexual preference. But some folks living in the bible belt, Georgia in particular, will likely be turned off by this sort of public behavior, let alone splattered all over the internet.
Don’t get me wrong, Adam Lambert is a powerful singer and he is destined for fame, but I do have a bone to pick with Lambert due to his last performance on American Idol. I, personally, felt that Lambert’s slight-of-hand genital stroking during his latest performance of “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction” was totally inappropriate. Hey! We got kids, here, Adam! Isn’t this supposed to be a family show?
This writer asked American Idol watchers in different age groups in Georgia about their opinion of Adam Lambert’s tongue touching internet incidents. “I don’t really care what he does, I’m voting for Lil Rounds. But I don’t understand why he would want to jeopardize his promise of winning American Idol by leaking photos of his tongue action,” commented resident of Forsyth, Georgia, Patsy Hollifield. Morrow, Georgia, resident Brittany Crews, replied “I don’t think it’s a big deal, but that sort of thing should be kept private.” Thomaston, Georgia, resident Sandra Sosebee, described her feelings in one word, “Yuck.”
Could it be that the smooching photos of American Idol hopeful Adam Lambert could have been taken without his knowledge? Sure. Could it be that the photos of Adam Lambert were taken with his knowledge? Sure. Either way, American Idol’s Adam Lambert has certainly got folks talking and you can’t buy that kind of publicity. Only time will tell if American Idol contestant Adam Lambert will be positively or negatively influenced by the internet guy-to-guy face action.
Could one of American Idol’s top 13, Adam Lambert, lose votes due to internet photos of tongue action with other guys? Some Georgian American Idol viewers think so.http://www.buddytv.com/articles/american-idol/american-idol-8-adam-lambert-h-26702.aspxhttp://www.accesshollywood.com/dish-of-salt-idols-adam-lambert-on-his-photo-scandal_article_15289
