Wall Street Journal, which is already conservative, put one of its most conservative writers Peggy Noonan on an article that goes on about ‘America’s Problems’. And, surpriseee, Adam is classified as being the main ‘problem’. Apart from the fact that this sounds an awfully lot like pretentious attention grabbing and riding on the coattails of Adam’s success, the content and tone of this writing is disgusting and narrowminded.
So now, let’s just blame Adam Lambert for everything. Economic crisis? Adam, your fault. Credit crunch? Adam, how could you? Swine flu? Oh, I’m sure Adam is somewhere at the roots of it.
I just dropped a glass on the floor. Can I blame Adam for that, too? Or for the traffic jam that I was stuck in this morning? You know, sometimes it is so easy to shift the blame to someone. Too easy. Let’s just pull some random quotes out of this lady’s article..
“This was behind the resentment at the Adam Lambert incident on ABC in November. The compromise was breached. It was a broadcast network, it was prime time, it was the American Music Awards featuring singers your 11-year-old wants to see, and your 8-year-old.”
Aw. Of course, your 11-year-old daughter is a massive fan of Janet Jackson. Or J-Lo. How cute is she mimicking their curious dance moves, also involving some crotch grabbing and booty-shaking? How adorable does that extremely short dress that leaves very little to imagination look on her?
Or your 8-year-old son, seriously, isn’t it amazing how well he memorizes all these Eminem lyrics? ‘I got 74 rapes under my belt..’ ‘I’ll pull out my gun and shoot you through the head..’ At the same time, he perfectly takes on Eminem’s attitude and language, and your little 8-year-old talks in such foul language about ‘niggas’ and ‘faggots’. Really, aren’t you proud?
Yes, kids have their favorite singers. But really, are those singers so much better than Adam? Actually, I see Adam more as a role model, who radiates positive energy and openly talks about how it is ok to be different and takes a stance against bullies. Isn’t that allowed either? Should all kids be the same, and every kid that deviates should be crucified?
“People were offended, and they complained. Mr. Lambert seemed surprised and puzzled. With an idiot’s logic that was nonetheless logic, he suggested he was the focus of bigotry: They let women act perverse on TV all the time, so why can’t a gay man do it?”
I like how you call it idiot’s logic without backing it up. Because I totally see the logic in Adam’s argument, why are there two different standards for women and gay men? According to the writer there obviously should be a different standard. Women are allowed to be sexual but gay men doing it are scary. Heck, gay men are scary in itself right? Which is also why:
“Mr. Lambert’s act left viewers feeling not just offended but assaulted. Again, “we don’t care what you do in New York,” but don’t include us in it, don’t bring it into our homes. Our children are here.”
Pff. Okay, so we’re back at the start. Feel free to bring in Eminem with his lovely rhymes, feel free to let Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Shakira, Beyoncé, J-Lo and even bloody Miley Cyrus shake their booties. But keep out this gay man. Cuz he’s weird.
Whatever. Fed up with this discussion, let’s just leave it. Never gonna agree anyways. As long as the people who care about Adam and support his art keep on doing so and not let themselves be swayed by those narrow minded conservatists.
We love you Adam, just ignore these people. They don’t get you. We do.
