WARNING: The following article is an opinion piece, and does not necessarily reflect the views of adamunofficial.com as a whole. (But I’d truly be surprised to find many who disagree with me – hee hee!)
Social behavior has been on a steady decline over the last two decades. In this piece, I’m not even thinking about the offensive language we hear on TV/movies/song lyrics or the extras we see from those wearing saggy/baggy pants. No, today I’m focusing on the blurring of the line between home versus public behavior. I think technology has had a big hand in this. Remember when VHS machines first came out and we started watching movies in our living rooms? The freedom of pausing or talking during the movie without getting shushed was such a novelty. Go to the movies now, and they have to run a piece reminding audiences to keep quiet. And we never had to worry about bothering others when we talked on our home phones. Now cell phone talkers are invading our space at public locations/events. Have you noticed how loud people talk on them? “Can you hear me now?” “Yes idiot, the whole restaurant can!”
Thankfully Adam Lambert feels strong enough about audience behavior that he didn’t feel shy about speaking up during his recent performance in New York with I Heart Radio, when he was distracted mid-song. Somehow, someone who was lucky enough to get into the show, much less close enough to the stage to be within eye range of Adam, completely forgot common courtesy. The YouTube videos are making their rounds as I write this. We’ve even got another article on this site, showing all of his beautiful, sexy performances. But now the moment in question has made its way onto E News Now and I felt it deserved separate mention. Please folks, if you’re lucky enough to attend a performance from ANYONE, please remember your manners. And especially if you’re going to be in the Fantasy Springs audience with me, I want TOTAL Adam, not your cell phone!
