Adam Lambert To Share ‘Tonight Show’ Stage With Sarah Palin

Adam Lambert will perform on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on March 2, NBC has confirmed to Access Hollywood – the same night former Alaska governor Sarah Palin will appear on the show.

Audiences will be curious to see how Palin, the 2008 Vice Presidential candidate, who is not a supporter of LBGT issues, reacts to the racy performance style of the openly gay former “American Idol” runner-up.

As previously reported by AccessHollywood.com, Adam stated on his Web site that he would be performing his track “Music Again” on the episode. Adam had previously announced his appearance before it was officially confirmed by “The Tonight Show.”

Paula Abdul Not Heading To Oprah Winfrey’s Cable Network

Despite the rumor, Paula Abdul isn’t heading to the Oprah Winfrey Network.

Earlier this week, the National Enquirer reported that Oprah gave her “personal go-ahead” to film a pilot for a talk show starring the former “Idol” judge for OWN. The paper reported that Paula was going to have celebrity guests and regular people “telling inspirational stories.”

But, when contacted by Access Hollywood, a rep for OWN said on Tuesday that there was “no truth to the rumor.” Additionally, a rep for Paula could not confirm the rumor.

‘American Idol’ Contestant Katie Stevens Wins Hometown Fans

MIDDLEBURY – There was no question at the Albini residence who turned in the best performance Tuesday on “American Idol”: obviously it was Katie Stevens.

Of course, Ray and Penny Albini are partial to the 17-year-old Pomperaug High School student: they’re friends with her parents, their three children are friends with Stevens, and their house has become “American Idol” headquarters for a close circle of family friends, who attend viewing parties every time Stevens is on the show.

“She put our little town on the map — this is the least we can do for her,” Penny Albini said.

Local dancers out $50; Upset at American Idol semifinalist

Hall — now one of the top 24 contestants on the current “American Idol” TV show — has left parents of aspiring dancers across the country angry and looking for reimbursement.

Dozens of children who auditioned at Spotlight weren’t reimbursed their $50 participation fee when the musical — planned for last August — apparently was canceled, said O’Neal-McQueen.

“No one has gotten their money,” she said Tuesday. “I had gone online and checked out the Web site (for the musical) and the auditions they were having seemed reputable.”

O’Neil-McQueen said she had been asked by the audition organizers to help advertise the event and institute the $50 fee.

“It doesn’t reflect well on me,” she said. “I didn’t get paid, but it was my studio they used.”

Lilly Scott: “Idol’s” manic-pixie dream girl?

I sure hope the country is ready for Lilly Scott, the offbeat nerd girl who rocked “American Idol” Tuesday night. The 20-year-old former street musician has white-blond hair, razor-cut bangs and a mesmerizingly awkward stage presence. Let’s just say, she’s no Carrie Underwood, and thank god for that. Guitar in hand, she wowed the judges with a jazzy, soulful rendition of the Beatles’ “Fixing a Hole.” She’s a heady mash-up of Feist, Lilly Allen and Zooey Deschanel, and she has all the peculiar intrigue of Adam Lambert.

Who Is Lilly Scott?

(MYFOX NATIONAL) – Bringing an indie classic rock feel to season nine of “American Idol” is platinum-haired Lilly Scott, who hails from Littleton, Colo.

The 20-year-old made no secret of the fact that she thinks people need something else to “listen to besides Miley Cyrus or Britney Spears.”

Before auditioning for TV biggest show, according to her Facebook fan page, the musician had been playing in her folk rock indie band, Varlet, for years.

American Idol: Afraid of Andrew Garcia’s YouTube Past?

No American Idol contestant enters the game without a past — the lucky ones just hope that it won’t get them disqualified, as with Frenchie Davis in 2003 for a topless photo shoot, and this year’s Chris Golightly, who had a previous recording contract with a boy band. That could be why semi-finalist Andrew Garcia has gone dark on YouTube.

The 24-year-old performer from Moreno Valley, Calif., was cited today by the New York Times as being “the most plainly relevant contestant this season” — not because his overall life story particularly captures the cultural zeitgeist, but because Garcia has been uploading acoustic guitar covers of pop songs to YouTube since June 2008 — just like hundreds of other aspiring musicians who might one day yearn to be Idols. Garcia’s past covers include Keri Hilson, Neyo and Kanye West’s Knock You Down and a Michael Jackson tribute that’s topped 1.2 million views.

‘American Idol’ Reject Phonied Documents?

Chris Golightly was booted from the show because he had a record deal when he auditioned in Hollywood last year.

At a news conference today, Golightly produced a document showing he had been released from his record deal before he auditioned at “Idol.”

But a few minutes ago, Lawrence D. Franklin, CEO of Dream Project Entertainment, told TMZ after Golightly got disqualified, he approached Franklin and together they phonied a document, backdating the release of his contract to June 7, 2009.

Why did Franklin come clean if he was in on the deception you ask? Franklin tells us … he belatedly wanted to do the right thing.

Meanwhile, Chris’ people say Franklin is full of it.

Former Idol contestant Jamar Rogers drops out to pursue music aspirations

WITI-TV, MILWAUKEE – One performer you won’t see on American Idol is Milwaukee native Jamar Rogers. If that name is familiar, it’s because Rogers is Danny Gokey’s best friend who tried out for Idol with Gokey. Rogers tried out again for the 2010 season, but dropped out before the idol judges could make their decision.

“I made it all the way to the judges and I decided to opt out at that point, because I wanted to work with Phil.” Phil Ramone is the Grammy Award winning producer who signed Rogers before he could hear a decision from the Idol judges. “He’s worked with everyone from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Madonna, and he saw me singing and said young man I wanna work with you and that’s who I’m working with right now.”

Now, Rogers is concentrating on writing music, getting his name out and getting ready for a modeling career.

Monkey See And NPR Music Team Up To Size Up The ‘Idol’ Top 24

Linda: Okay. ANYWAY. We’re down to the Top 24, and this is traditionally the moment where we try to figure out who’s going to win. I should add that at no point last year did either one of us think that there was any chance that eventual winner Kris Allen would win, so that’s the context.

Howard Stern: ‘I’m Turning Down ‘American Idol’ “

The long saga of whether or not Howard Stern will take the fourth judge’s chair on ‘American Idol’ may be coming to a close, if recent statements by the shock jock are any indication.

According to the Stern fan site MarksFriggin.com, on this morning’s installment of the Stern show the caustic radio host claimed that he had never put his hat in the ring for Simon Cowell’s soon-to-be-vacated job. He also reportedly said he’d only be interested in the gig if he was going to take home a nine-digit payday for a few months of work. From the site’s summary:

Evil Adam Lambert slams sweet Susan Boyle? Not exactly

What is it with celebrity interviews lately? Must everyone take things out of context?

Adam Lambert spoke with U.K. magazine Gay Times for its March issue, in an interview excerpted here. Yes, he criticizes Susan Boyle’s album. But does he “slam Susan Boyle”? Was the point of the interview to trash her album and extend his “15 minutes of fame”? Has he “gone on the record to tell everyone what he really thinks” and blame SuBo’s album for his failure? Hardly.

Jennifer Hudson’s Baby Son: A Singing Wrestler?!

“One of his favorite things is to hear the piano,” Otunga tells me. “Jennifer will play the piano or sing to him, and he will calm down immediately. We had a guy over once tuning the piano and he was pecking the keys, and David started trying to sing and imitate the notes. It was the most unbelievable thing.”

Also kinda unbelievable is Otunga’s burgeoning wrestling career…

Otunga is one of eight rookie professional wrestlers on the World Wrestling Entertainment’s new reality show, NXT, premiering tonight on the Syfy network.

‘Idol’ Alum Jason Castro Visits Hilliard Darby

HILLIARD, Ohio—Chicken patties. Socializing with friends. A live music performance.

While it isn’t the typical scene in the Darby commons, it was reality when American Idol alum Jason Castro visited for an exclusive show Feb. 1.

In town for a concert at the Basement that night, Castro was promoting “The Love Uncompromised.“

Students were treated to short acoustic sets throughout fifth period and had the opportunity to buy merchandise, take photographs and get autographs.

Beforehand, Castro sat down with the Panther Press for an exclusive interview.

Pop voice pipes up for gays

RALEIGH — Clay Aiken will take the stage at the convention center Saturday night to do something he has never done before: deliver a speech about gay rights.

But don’t expect him to pound his fist and scream for the right to get married.

“There are people who are loud and make noise, and there are people who are deliberate and slow and steady,” Aiken said during an interview this week at a downtown coffee shop. “Right now, at this point in my life, I feel like a slow and steady person.”

Sarasota’s Syesha Mercado offers advice to her fellow Tampa Bay area American Idol contestants

Since the Tampa Bay area has a couple of singers with ties to the area competing in American Idol ‘s Top 24 tonight and Wednesday, I asked Sarasota-raised singer Syesha Mercado, who made it to the Number three spot on Idol back in 2008, to offer some advice.

Her email came too late for inclusion in today’s stories I wrote for the Times. But Mercado, who has been performing in a touring version of Dreamgirls, offered some interesting insights, so I’ve placed the email here. Catch up with her online here.

Simon Says: No Marriage Without Pre-Nup

Simon Cowell has proven to be many things, but foolish has never really been one of them. So it should be no surprise that as things get more serious with his new girlfriend, Simon won’t even consider walking down the aisle unless there’s a pre-nup in place. Way to protect your hundreds of millions, Simon!

“Simon has made it clear to Mezhgan that he will not be walking down the aisle unless a pre-nup has been signed,” a friend of Simon’s tells me. “He is in love, he hasn’t lost his mind.”

Ellen scrambling to make her mark on ‘Idol’

Ellen DeGeneres is wasting no time trying to make her mark on “American Idol.” According to multiple sources involved with the show, DeGeneres feels that she has to come out of the gates exceptionally strong, especially in light of Simon Cowell’s imminent departure.

“She signed on for ‘Idol’ thinking Simon was going to be there for the long haul,” said one source. “She had no reason to think he’d be leaving. What happens her first day at work? He announces he’s gone after this season. What does Ellen do? She starts panicking that she’ll be left at the helm of a sinking ship once he leaves. She’s not going to let that happen. She’s going to prove she has influence and makes good decisions now, in case anyone tries to blame her for lower ratings next year.”

‘Dancing’ Star Finds Himself in Britain’s Version of Tiger Woods Scandal

In case you don’t follow British gossip, there’s a massive infidelity scandal going on between a sports superstar and his drop-dead gorgeous wife … sound familiar? Soccer (err, football) superstar Ashley Cole and his pop star wife Cheryl are going through a nasty time right now after she found racy texts on Ashley’s phone (again … sound familiar?), and other reports claim he was sleeping with the woman he was texting — and possibly many others. (cough cough Tiger Woods)

So while it’s juicy and salacious, just how does this affect us in the United States? Well, it didn’t really — hey, we’ve got our own pants-dropping sports stars, thank you very much — until a new man emerged in the life of Cheryl Cole: None other than ‘Dancing With the Stars’ blondie Derek Hough.

Dannii out of X Factor auditions

Dannii Minogue says she won’t be judging The X Factor auditions as she’ll be in Australia having her baby.

But the 38-year-old singer-turned-TV-star, who is expecting her first child in the summer, insisted she still wants to be a part of the show.

Dannii wrote on Twitter: “I have not quit The X Factor – if possible I would love to be a part of the live shows and continue to fly the Team Minogue flag.”

She told The Daily Mirror at the Elle Style Awards on Monday: “When the live auditions will be happening I will be in Australia giving birth, so I’m not being able to do that, unfortunately.

Golightly-gate continues: Former manager speaks out

More details are coming to light about circumstances surrounding Chris Golightly’s dismissal from “American Idol’s” Top 24. Dream Projects Entertainment Chief Executive Lawrence Franklin released a statement Tuesday afternoon saying the orphaned contestant was signed to a contract with his company. In fact, Golightly had re-upped his commitment to the boy band Dream 5 in May 2009, two months before he tried out for “Idol” at the Rose Bowl. Golightly had claimed he was released in June of that year and held a press conference earlier in the day during which he showed proof of a release document signed in June 2009 (Franklin states he did agree to back-date the document).

Franklin also alleges that Golightly got into “a physical altercation” with one of the Dream 5 group members and, on the day he auditioned for “Idol,” had lied about his whereabouts by telling them “he had been incarcerated during that time period.”

Adam Lambert Dishes On Donning Corsets And Shoulder Cages (VIDEO)

If Adam Lambert had to describe his style in three words, they’d be “glam,” “chic,” and “playful,” the singer told Pop Couture. He talked about fashion and music, working with stylists on videos and some of the crazier outfits he’s had to wear including shoulder cages on American Idol and corsets and a leather trenchcoat by Gaultier in his music vids. He also reflects on his pre-style days and his do-it-yourself projects.

Who Is Paige Miles?

MYFOX NATIONAL – Paige Miles’ family hadn’t heard her singing voice before the top 24 finalist, who hails from Naples, Fla., auditioned for “American Idol.”

It wasn’t that she was shy, she is a self-proclaimed “closet singer,” according to NaplesNews.com .

Miles said she only knew she could sing a little when she sang along to the radio and TV, and on her blog says it was Kelly Clarkson who inspired her to audition.

Now the energetic, self-dubbed homebody will be singing in front of up to 30 million viewers.

In addition to “Joseph and his Technicolor Dreamcoat” with American Idol finalist Anthony Fedorov in the lead role which will open December 7th and run through the holiday season, “Stomp” (above) returns in March. There is also “The Gospel at Colonus,” the show opening the season in August, which wowed Guthrie audiences almost 25 years ago during the Garland Wright era. “Guys and Dolls” and “9 to 5: the musical” will be summer offerings in 2011, rounded out in May by “Next to Normal” which was a Broadway hit in 2009, winning three Tonys.

Ellen DeGeneres’ Live ‘American Idol’ Debut: Experts Weigh In

Another avid “Idol” blogger, MJ Santilli of MJsBigBlog.com, said despite her years of stand-up experience and copious TV work, DeGeneres appeared a bit nervous and jumpy at times. “But I think she did pretty well for her first night out — certainly no worse than the rest of the panel, who tend to repeat themselves and talk in clichés,” she said, adding that despite her misgivings, it felt like all the judges seemed to raise their game a bit during the performance night.

As for comparisons between DeGeneres and the kooky-but-nurturing Abdul, Santilli said there is none. “So far, Ellen is nothing like Paula,” she said. “She tends to make sense, and she’s not afraid to offer negative critiques. I’m not sure replacing Paula is that important. The contestants might miss Paula’s soft touch, and the interest she took in their careers, but I don’t think the viewers are going to miss having a super-mama on the panel.”

LaBelle: Some ‘Idol’ judges aren’t qualified

NEW YORK — Patti LaBelle thinks some people shouldn’t be on American Idol— and she’s not talking about the contestants.

Says Labelle: “Some of the judges, I don’t think they’re qualified to even judge.”

The 65-year-old singer wouldn’t say which judge she thought was lacking on the hit Fox show, which has Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson, Kara DioGuardi and Ellen DeGeneres picking America’s top singers. Tuesday’s Idol episode saw 12 female semifinalists competitng during “Hollywood Week.”

Labelle — who said she was asked to be a judge on the series before Paula Abdul— feels like the judges’ comments to the contestants are too mean.

Who Wore It Better?: Adam Lambert Vs. Tokio Hotel’s Bill Kaulitz

Sugar and spikes and everything nice… Apparently, that’s what lil’ boys are made of. Well, boys like Adam Lambert and Tokio Hotel frontman Bill Kaulitz, at the very least.

I’ve heard of shoulder pads but I’ve never heard of shoulder spikes. Is this a new trend I should be aware of? Someone get Andre Leon Talley on the phone for me.

Glambert was first seen sporting this look during his infamous live performance at the 2009 American Music Awards, while Kaulitz recently rocked this similar style at the 60th San Remo Music Festival on February 19th in San Remo, Italy.

Does this qualify Kaulitz as a copycat—or, a “nachmachen glit nicht!” as translated into his native German. In your opinion, who wore it better?

Simon Talks ‘X-Factor’ and Who Should Replace Him on ‘Idol’

Simon Cowell dishes to “Extra’s” Terri Seymour about leaving “American Idol,” the future of “X-Factor,” and his new girlfriend.

What can people expect from the US version of his show “X-Factor?” Cowell says lots of people have expressed an interest in being a judge on the show. “It’s over a year away and a lot can happen in a year. I’ve always made it clear with Paula [Abdul] I would love to work with her, so we’ll see what works out. It’s not just my decision.”

“What about Mario Lopez?” Terri asked. “Tell Mario to call me. I like Mario… he’s good,” Cowell replied.

Now that he’s moving on from the “Idol” judge’s chair, lots of names have been thrown around as possible replacements, including that of shock jock Howard Stern.

    Kelly gives Pennsylvania second ‘Idol’ hopeful

    ………. His young age and polite, reserved manners — “I always said that I was Southern-raised … ‘yes sir,’ ‘yes, ma’am,’ that’s how my mom had taught me” — already have people comparing Kelly to 2008 runner-up David Archuleta. Archuleta, Kelly says, is “a great, phenomenal singer and musician,” and he’s honored by the comparison, but “we’re two different people.”

    Different kind of music, different style,” he says. “I mean, the only similarities between me and David are that … we were both 16 when we tried out for the show.”

    Jordin Sparks And David Archuleta Say No To Texting And Driving

    February 24, 2010 by Ashley Parker

    “X the TXT,” a campaign sponsored by Allstate Insurance, hopes to stop the dangerous practice of texting while driving.

    Back in November, Sparks said, “I am really passionate about this issue and am so thrilled to have an ‘X the TXT’ event at the Experience. The event is focused on encouraging people to make a difference in their communities and families. By pledging not to text and drive we can save thousands of live – choosing not to pick up the phone and keeping your eyes on the road can be the difference between life and death.”

    Teens and families at the event were asked to add their thumbprints to a banner as a public pledge not to drive and text.

    All of the proceeds raised by her events will benefit a number of charities, including the Miami Children’s Hospital. On February 4, Jordin and David delivered teddy bears to children at the hospital. David Archuleta performed with Jordin Sparks at the “X the TXT” event on February 3. The concert was held at the Eden Roc Renaissance Hotel in Miami Beach, Florida.

    Does that read as if the Real Adam Lambert was twirling his villainous imaginary mustache, or shaking a fist at the heavens, and, in the spirit of “Scooby-Doo,” cursing, “If only it hadn’t been for Susan Boyle and those meddling kids! I would’ve gotten away with it!”

    No grudge against Adam I think this is funny image ok bwcause I grew up with Scooby-doo..

    “I made it all the way to the judges and I decided to opt out at that point, because I wanted to work with Phil.” Phil Ramone is the Grammy Award winning producer who signed [Lamar]Rogers before he could hear a decision from the Idol judges. “He’s worked with everyone from Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Madonna, and he saw me singing and said young man I wanna work with you and that’s who I’m working with right now.”

    AWESOME news about Lamar Rodgers! I was wondering why we didn’t see him in Hollywood. I think he would have been a shoe-in for the Top 24 but this is great for him.

    Simon won’t even consider walking down the aisle unless there’s a pre-nup in place. Way to protect your hundreds of millions, Simon!

    Good Lord, is this what passes for news? I don’t even know why this is an issue. I have a pre-nup and I’m not a multi-millionaire.

    For another prominent story on Adam’s alleged comments re: Susan, go to http://www.msn.com/ and

    As someone who thought that what Adam said was stupid and unnecessary, it wasn’t as bad as that article portrayed. I think Adam should get crap for the stupid ass decision he made when he moronically decided to be honest about the nice Cat Lady’s atrocious album…but for the things he said. Which were bad enough. That article did seem to take things out of context to make it see that what he said was worse than the stupid and thoughtless thing he did say. So I don’t appreciate that.

    But hey, if he hadn’t said the stupid things to begin with, he wouldn’t have had to worry about the blowback he’s getting/going to get.

    I would say I wish he could learn his lesson from this, but I think I’ve given up on his getting an effing clue.

    Deep down I secretly wish Adam would sing “Master Plan” instead of “Music Again” since Palin will be in the audience.

    You run away from everything that you fear
    So afraid don’t wanna be a part of it
    You see the fake in everything that is real
    You hate the paradox
    You put us in a box……

    We are the face of the new generation
    We are the ones who have no reservations
    Don’t give a damn ’bout your cold calculations
    welcome to the masterplan
    don’t care if you understand
    don’t care if you understand
    welcome to the masterplan

    Your skin is burning at the sight of me
    Your mask can’t hide what you’re thinkin’
    Don’t ask (Don’t tell)
    Just take what you need
    I’m an open book
    So go on and take a look..

    (I skipped some lines but you get the point.) He could kiss his career goodbye probably after that but I can see a split screen Adam singing that song and Palin’s reaction from the couch. Neil would be proud.

    Whenever Adam missteps they show up!

    Unfortunately, the nasty comments show up even in good articles about him. People love to hate him. I just don’t read them anymore, some are truly vile and disgusting. I think this is partially why he has a ‘it’s not deep, let it roll off’ attitude about many things as a protective shell, he’s heard this all before and it wouldn’t stop even if he sold 10 million albums.

    I love, love, love Master Plan, I wish someone would take to the song as an anthem.

    This is why I don’t bother with the comments anymore either. Most of the comments are ten times worse than whatever Adam said about Subo but those posters get to stay anonymous!

  • mrgrk

    I’m expecting the Adam/Sarah Palin meeting to be the same as the one on the View w/Elizabeth Hasselbeck…he’ll have her totally charmed.

  • cakeygirl

    why does no one fact check nemore? if adam says he was misquoted, he was misqouted. all the “news” people do anymore is be lazy and reprint rumors. from subo to kris not even being in haiti its just ridiculous

  • Kate8

    I am not suprised about the nasty comments about Adam for slamming Susan Boyle. Even if an article isn’t anything negative about him there usually are about 30% really nasty comments or sometimes a huge string of homophobic comments.

    He could kiss his career goodbye probably after that but I can see a split screen Adam singing that song and Palin’s reaction from the couch. Neil would be proud.

    I have no doubt that Adam would charm the pants off Sarah Palin, but I doubt he will even meet her. She will likely be Jay’s first guest and then leave immediately thereafter. She won’t be sitting on the couch at the end. And I suspect her people will keep her away from Adam backstage. Shaun white will probably still be there at the end for the musical guest tho.

    I don’t know if it would be “tense”, but it would certainly be a great pop culture moment. Palin is very very right wing conservative. Opposes gay marriage. I believe was quoted as saying she had one gay friend, but that she didn’t agree with his “choice” to be gay….or something like that (far be it from me to misquote someone.)

    Interestingly, the comments to this particular article were about 95% negative towards Lambert. Am wondering why Lambert fans aren’t representing? Maybe now that the article has been linked here, the defenders will show up?

    I always remember that large mainstream content providers such as Yahoo and AOL seem to attract the most virulent trolls, racists, homophobes and overall mean people (not to mention spammers). It’s not just Adam…click on any article referring to Obama, or a gay celebrity, or heck ANYTHING, and you’ll see comments that will make your stomach turn and your blood boil (and often by the same username).

    Racy performance style by Adam?? where? Other than that one time you know what performance in November his “style” has been reserved. Where does Access Hollywood come up with this stuff?

    I just lurk here but I just had to say that Sarah Palin and Adam Lambert are civilized adults and even though they may have some differences, there is no reason they cannot participate in a civil conversation with one another. I am a conservative who likes Sarah Palin and is a big fan of Adam Lambert. It seems to me that thinking they could not possible appear together says less about them than about the one holding that opinion.

  • Tony

    I saw this on MSN.com. It’s about Adam supposedly mocking Susan Boyle’s album. First I’ve heard of it. In the article, it says “Lambert sold an impressive 200,000 copies in his first week — but he couldn’t believe he was toppled by Boyle’s ‘terrible’ album.”

    Ya know, I hate to say it, but regardless of whether Adam did or did not make those comments about SuBo (and if he did I have no problem at all with what he said, beyond the fact that it was sure to cause un-needed controversy) I think that perhaps his pr people need to do some damage control, because this thing is now getting picked up all over the place and being blown way way out of proportion to what was actually said. Its a very juicy headline/tweet to write Adam the Bully or Adam “Slams” SuBo.

    Audiences will be curious to see how Palin, the 2008 Vice Presidential candidate, who is not a supporter of LBGT issues, reacts to the racy performance style of the openly gay former “American Idol” runner-up.

    I agree. I still call bullshit and the article looks chopped up and doesn’t even sound like the way he speaks (too Brit speak?), but one tweet from Adam isn’t going to make this go away. It’s not exactly the AMAs of bad press, but at least UK and Europe were laughing at the American reaction. He’s got promo coming up in the UK and you know they will ask him about it. I hope he’s got an answer.

  • KLI

    Sarah Palin said once that she does have a friend who is gay, who made a “choice,” but it is not a choice that she would make.

    Unless she has said something to the contrary, it appears that Sarah Palin believes that sexual orientation is a “choice” that people make depending on their preferred lifestyle.

    Because Adam’s very existence as someone who has identified as homosexual from age 12 is contradictory to Palin’s professed beliefs, there are people who do take a degree of pleasure in imagining these clashing realities and belief systems coming into contact with each other.

    Personally, I find it amusing, but I think it’s most likely they won’t have any interaction at all. We’ll know soon enough.

  • girlygirl

    Unless they hang out in the green room together, I doubt Adam will even meet Sarah Palin. He’s “just” singing on Leno right? I’m pretty sure he’s not doing another sit-down interview. So he’ll be on right before the show ends — Sarah Palin likeyl will have left the building by then

    No. Hot 99.5 is Clear Channel. The Clear Channel stations don’t do things as a group. So some have added WWFM and some haven’t.

    It seems that in Clear Channel’s case, the videos often are put up as a sort of (paid in some way, I would guess…) advertisement in a deal with the record label. Don’t know what happens at Cumulus, although I’d assume they do some such deals too, since who doesn’t accept various kinds of advertising/advertorials/etc these days? In the case of at least some of these Clear Channel videos, the ad buy seems to be corporation wide, since they appear on everybody’s web site. But just the video being there — or somebody having no video on Clear Channel sites — doesn’t seem to relate one way or another to whether the stations actually play a song or not.

  • Truthiness

    What a shock. I didn’t see that one coming.

    What a moron.

    The MSNBC article chopped up what Adam said to make the disparaging things he did say, put in even worse context, that his comment about how he was joking that Susan did better than him, and here the LATimes is right, and includes the full quote and it is making fun of the whole ‘curse! foiled again! except for that darn SuBo!’ so that’s a bunch of BS to say that Adam is slamming SuBo for her sales versus his. So that bugs.

    Because again, slamming Adam for what he did say, should be sufficient enough, and the nitwit deserves it.

    He will definitely need some statements to make, and soon to get his story out. Because this isn’t good for him. Especially right before some UK visits. Again, smashing timing, what what, old chap.

  • zuper

    I agree. I still call bullshit and the article looks chopped up and doesn’t even sound like the way he speaks (too Brit speak?),

    sr4 – I’ll bet he probably did say it, but what you don’t have is the interviewers side of the conversation. He started in with “I know, if it weren’t for Susan Boyle”. The “I know” part if it indicates to me anyway that he is reacting to something the interviewer said. Also, my guess is that the conversation did not flow like it is printed either. I’ll bet sentences were constructed out of serveral of his thoughts and had serveral leading questions/comments by the interviewer intermixed.

    Adam needs to learn not to trust media. Even when they are acting like it is all informal and they are your friend, they are just trying to get a headline. Mission accomplished.

  • mmb

    greeeaaatt. that is the thing about the internet. some relatively obscure publication in a foreign country publishes something (doesn’t matter if true/untrue/accurate/inaccurate), it gets picked up in a google search, people start tweeting about it or talking about it on message boards, other small bloggers pick it up, then the bigger bloggers pick it up, then the mainstream sources pick it up and within 48 hours it is everywhere. And the headlines will become juicier and farther away from the facts of what was originally published. And if it turns out it isn’t true or accurate (and I have no idea either way on this, altho I do tend to believe Adam), that fact will be completely ignored as the story picks up steam unless a formal response is issued. which is why i think adam’s pr people need to get on this. In this day and age, if a tabloid in Malaysia reports that you sneezed, within 48 hours everyone around the world will hear that you have a cold, and more likely the headlines will read that you are deathly ill with pneumonia.

    I’m not sure what kind of damage control Adam’s PR people can do. It sounds like he did say that he didn’t like SuBo’s album. His exact words may not have been quoted correctly and his manner may not have been as described, but the essentials are probably correct. So I’m not sure whether Adam has any choice but to ride this one out, and offer a clarification as the opportunity arises.

    On a side note, I think it is a bit ridiculous that Adam can’t have a negative opinion of another singer’s album. So what if he doesn’t like SuBo’s record — I didn’t realize that being a recording artist means that you give up being able to have an opinion about other people’s work. That said, I wish Adam would be more careful in choosing what to say to the press. By now he should realize that anything negative gets a lot more attention than the positive. Case in point: I’ll bet this whole SuBo thing is going to get a lot more mention on the internet than his donorschoose.org school visit. As much as he would probably like to be open and honest in interviews, I think he should exercise a bit more caution and tact — it would save him a lot of grief (and nasty tweets).

    Especially since GT has bee nothing but critical of him from AI on. GT isn’t exactly a standup publication. It’s basically a celeb rag that covers straight celebs who happen to have gay followings, and tends to be dismissive and downright hateful to any gay celebs they feel are too effeminate.

    Yeah, Leno’s probably going back to the old show format when Adam comes back, which means he’ll sing, but no interview :-( Which is unfortunate (and personally, I wish Leno would make an exception here), because Adam is a great interviewee, Leno and him had great rapport before, and just any lol moments you can make with Palin/Adam banter are worth it for the ratings ;-)

    I’ve been following Adam for a year now. Everything he does, says, wears attracts attention. Susan-gate will not be the last gate us fans of Adam will have to endure. I’d rather all the press pick up on it, rather than nobody caring what he says and does. It’s the price of fame. I expect him to tweet something or address it somewhere soon. I also suspect Simon will be saying something in defense of Susan.

    I also suspect Simon will be saying something in defense of Susan.

    why does anyone have to “defend” Susan? Adam didn’t attack her character, singing ability, songwriting ability, appearance, mental status or anything about her. As for his opinion that the album (which she did not write or produce or pick out the songs for)was terrible, obviously her 8 million in worldwide sales speaks for itself. No need to defend something that millions upon millions of people bought and (inexplicably) like.

    Simon will defend Susan because he’s making lots of $$$ off her. And picking on anyone’s golden goose is a no-no.

    Don’t know if Adam made those comments about SuBo and really don’t care. But he’s got to be smarter about this sort of thing. It doesn’t help that he was on some radio show imititating SuBo on “Wild Horses.” Even if he was misquoted, there’s reason for some to believe that Adam would say something flippant toward her and he supplied the reason himself. He’s too early in his career for such petty controversy.

    I must be missing something, why some people are so torn up over one quote. Whether he said it or not, it wouldn’t matter to me either way. I think as usual this will blow over, because truthfully how many people really care about SuBo over here. I don’t think Adam is going to make another statement, unless someone ask him about it. Adam tweeted earlier that he’s getting clothes ready for his trip, so he has much more important things to do than worry about one quote destroying his career. He has a concert this weekend, then the Leno show, after that off on his overseas promotional tour. If he’s asked about it overseas, they probably will laugh about America’s overreaction to one quote, plus all the emphasis Americans put on him being a openly gay man. The way we carry on about him being gay, you would think he was the only gay man left in the States.”

His exact words may not have been quoted correctly and his manner may not have been as described, but the essentials are probably correct. So I’m not sure whether Adam has any choice but to ride this one out, and offer a clarification as the opportunity arises.

    As I understand yeah, that magazine says what he is quoted as saying about Wild Horses and SuBo. So he is going to have to take his lumps for it. And sadly I’ve given up on his learning any kind of lesson by now. No doubt he’ll respond by becoming defensive and missing the point entirely of what he actually did that wasn’t cool or at least, smart.

    Though again, what I think is mischaracterized, with Adam laughing part, that he is joking about the idea that somehow he was kept from charting higher, but for the mysterious powers of The Cat Lady! So he might be able to clarify that part at least.

    But as for the rest? well unless GT made up actual quotes, then he deserves whatever backlash he gets from things he actually said. Eh. People have a right not to like what he actually did say, especially the fans of SuBo. Just like Adam fans don’t like when people say things about him.

  • HermeticallySealed

    Meh, As I’ve said, I would be surprised if GT gave him an accurate presentation as they have done nothing but print hateful remarks about him since he first showed up on AI. I find it more likely that he was joking around about a lot of what they claim he said, then just skewed it to the printed version. The wording just does not fit his typical speech pattern.

    Hey, I could very well be wrong, not like I was there. But it’s a bit like trusting VFTW to provide fair and balanced reporting on those they snark about.

    And to be honest, whether he did say it or not, I agree with the quote. It’s like someone pulled one of those middle aged church ladies who sing hymnals like they think it’s opera, and gave her songs to record. Just an absolute butchering of good music.

    Bridgette12 not here, but people will use it against him especially since it’s on major websites like msnbc and yahoo! :/

    Of course they will use it against him, it get’s them hits. The same way if something good happens to him and they have him on their websites. There are over 300,000 0000 Americans, some of them might not like the quote and some of them like me, really don’t care, plus some that won’t even read it. If SuBo’s fans get upset over it, they can either get over or not. I wouldn’t cry if another singer said they thought one of Adam’s songs were horrendous. That would pretty tame compared to all the other nasty stuff that has been said about him.If Americans are so sensitive about someone saying someone’s song was horrendous, we are really in serious trouble. As someone said yesterday, “unless they have video of Adam beating a baby seal to death”, I think he will survive another day. As for backlash, what more can they do, stop playing his songs on the radio or maybe throw darts at his picture on the wall. I think this just another “gate”, it will blow over till the next “gate”.

    Bridgette,I didn’t mean media,I meant all the anti-Adam people…

  • didilynn

    Perez posted that at midnight last night, so it’s not new (to me anyway). As the Hollywood Gossip pointed out, Adam is a “mega” celebrity now (I would argue “star”), so anything he says (and especially something that can be construed negative about someone because gossip-mongers love that kind of thing) is going to be picked up and spread around. It is too bad that Adam will have to be careful in future about saying what he really thinks about something (being critical) – but he may have to do so IF he cares about his image to that degree.

    ETA: and it’s ironic that there is a lot of negativity about Adam: his looks, his sexuality, make-up, AMA performance, album, etc. all over the place – people say horrible things about him, but who picks up on THAT story

    “Bridgette,I didn’t mean media,I meant all the anti-Adam people…”

    Luv I understand what your saying, but you can’t do anything about these people. You shouldn’t let it upset you, because Adam will always have people who will hate him. A lot of the nasty comments about him is a lot more than being upset that he said something about SuBo, it’s about hating him for being gay and being unapologetic about it. The rest of his career is going to be like this, no matter what he does or say, he will draw haters. I get solace and enjoyment from the fact that Adam is so talented and he gets respect and acknowledgement from those in the music business. I would advise you not to read the comments, because it doesn’t matter what he does, the haters will be there with some foul and disgusting comment. I am not saying everybody who make comments against Adam are haters, because there are those who simply don’t like his singing style or his personality.

  • Soberba

    I don’t think Adam said anything that will destroy his career (I’m sure a lot of people hate Susan Boyle’s CD as much as he does), but timing on this stuff is terrible. He’s about to go on his international promo tour and with this story everywhere people will definetly ask him about it. So, what the hell he’s gonna say? He can say that he was misquoted and he loves SuBo’s CD and come off as a liar, or he can say that he actually hates the CD and come off as a jerk. I, as a fan, know he’s neither, but this hole thing has puted him in a akward situation. At this point, I don’t really think he was misquoted anymore. I think he was baited by the interviewer to say something negative about her album, and, being his unfiltered self, he felt for it.

    And since when Susan Boyle became this nice helpless cat lady? I thought he was rumored to be a rude bitch with mental issues. But I guess she became an angel the moment he got criticism from evil Adam Lambert.

    This is so true. She has some mental issues and the UK tabloids tear her apart about them. Now the US tears Adam apart for saying he doesn’t like her cover. Her brother recently said they are worried about her b/c she gets picked apart for everything she says and does. He said she is not happy with the fame and fortune b/c the media rips on her everyday. So, the UK media using ADam to rip on her seems to be nothing new over there. In America, however, he kicked the puppy!

    And since when Susan Boyle became this nice helpless cat lady? I thought he was rumored to be a rude bitch with mental issues. But I guess she became an angel the moment he got criticism from evil Adam Lambert.

    SuBo has always been an angel. The whole point of it was that she looked odd, acted odd and people judged and laughed at her, then she ‘sang like an angel’ and people couldn’t believe that wonderful voice was coming out of that unprepossessing package, so that made it all the more amazing! See people! don’t judge a book by it’s cover. And any breakdowns that SuBo has had, have been put at the feet of her being fragile and not able to deal with the huge amount of celebrity that was suddenly thrust upon her. Plus she has mild developmental issues due to things when she was born. And she was living a very solitary existence, except for her cats, before fame suddenly struck.

    The whole story of SuBo as always been that she is an angel and a Lesson For Us All.

    So slamming her singing, right before one goes to visit her home country, is really dumb. Oh but let’s not just confine it there, she’s really popular here in the US with those that love her story and HER!(see her CD sales) so yeah, grrreaaat move.

  • Kate8

    I love Adam, but sometimes his timing makes him seem like he is self-sabotaging Example Ring of Fire performance before making top 10 and guaranteed to tour, AMA performance night his album drops and now SuBo comments right before international promo. He comes across as an intelligent man who really wants to be successful, but looking at the timing of these incidents makes me wonder if he has some esteem issues and fear of success.

  • koshka

    Truthiness and Kate8 -

    Interesting that your posts are back to back. We give lots of leeway to Subo..for suddenly being in the limelight and having to deal with sudden fame, where as Adam is pretty much criticized for every miss step he takes. There is a lot of irony in this for me.

    Don’t get me wrong, I don’t feel sorry for either Subo or Adam. Both signed up for this when they decided to go on a reality show, but in my mind, If you are going to give a pass to one, you better give a pass to the other. They are probably both laughing all the way to the bank.

  • Truthiness

    Interesting that your posts are back to back. We give lots of leeway to Subo..for suddenly being in the limelight and having to deal with sudden fame, where as Adam is pretty much criticized for every miss step he takes. There is a lot of irony in this for me.

    Because SuBo characterlized herself as a loner, one who was odd, who wasn’t savvy about much about life. And indeed, that’s who she was. She was thrust from a small Scottish home she stayed at with her cats into an international limelight and fame. Plus again, she’s supposedly she has some developmental issues.

    Adam has said that he was savvy, having been in LA and Hollywood life for years. Though not famous, he himself had said he had more experience. And certainly he did for fame. He was on stage all the time in things like The Ten Commandments, which didn’t last long, but it was a major role in LA in a big production. And while his role was usually small, he was in the LA production of Wicked. Or he was in Houston starring in Brigadoon. Or touring across Europe in Hair. Now granted he was feeling pretty insecure himself, as per his own words. But certainly that compared to SuBo’s experience with fame? Slightly different. Plus, not like he has developmental issues.

    So that’s why more is, and should be expected from Adam in terms of being savvier and not forgiving the missteps in public life. I mean I get saying that people make mistakes, they do. Even when they’ve been famous for a really long time people say and do bone-headed things. Not just celebrities, but politicans and smart people who should know better.

    But still, it’s not the same thing for Adam and SuBo re; fame. So not the same expectations.

    Of course it will blow over, until something else comes up and someone else takes offense. Adam will always be controversial, simply because he’s not afraid of the truth. Some people like their truth, pretty and wrapped up with a nice bow. Adam likes his raw and exposed. It’s the price you pay for being uber talented and not shy about stating your opinions. I think the media loves him, because there is always a story somewhere when he’s around.

  • koshka

    Truthiness (I lost your quote – mentally insert above quote here ;)

    Actually I have the same expectation for Adam as Subo. Just because Subo has a sad backstory I think it diminishes her as an adult to not hold her responsible for her own behavior or take her lumps in criticism. I have a child with some developmental issues, not the same as Subo but different. My dd is different than other kids in her needs. It would kill me to see her socially defined by her limitations, accepted despite her limitations. Yes, subo has accomplished much, but the accomplishment should stand on its own, not with an asterick – that she did this despite her developmental issue, despite being a loner, despite (fill in the blank). She is not that developmentally slow not to realize this is being said about her. To me, by allowing to stand on her own, as an adult, as an artist, is what ultimately gives her respect.

    Adam Lambert For Mardi Gras?
    Local News, By Tim D, 25th February, 2010

    American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert is jetting into Sydney for a promotion tour next weekend

    Lambert, who is forging into new territory as a made-up, proudly gay glam rocker, made worldwide headlines with a same-sex kiss at the American Music Awards last year.

    His full itinerary when he lands in Australia on March 5 will be announced today, and includes an in-store appearance at Hum Records on Oxford Street on Saturday March 6 and, if the gods are kind enough, perhaps see him as the surprise performer at a large event that happens at the Entertainment Quarter on Saturday March 6.

  • Truthiness

    Adam will always be controversial, simply because he’s not afraid of the truth. Some people like their truth, pretty and wrapped up with a nice bow.

    Being truthful is not, contrary to the little statement, the best policy. We don’t always have to be brutally honest, not just for the benefit of ourselves when we’re not, but because little white lies are sometimes a kindess and really, the best policy.

    Politeness can be a good thing. Manners can be a good thing. I mean not as if when we say “it’s great meeting you,” we actually mean it evertime. Or that we really think everyone has a lovely home.

    And someone doesn’t even have to lie to be polite, they can just not
    volunteer negative information. It’s not hard and there is nothing dishonest about just sticking to the positive one believes in. For example, if Adam had just said, ‘I’m glad for her success,’ and that yeah, she ha ha! beat him out for that top spot, with that kind of ‘curses foiled again,’ joking about it in general fine. And just gone on to how he felt validated by getting on the charts at all, given how attacked he felt at the time. No need to slam SuBo’s crappy album and horrible take on Wild Horses while doing so. That was just not necessary to comment on what he felt the quality of SuBo’s album was at all. Yes, even if someone else brought it up.

    And not like Adam doesn’t do little white lies himself. He does, everyone does. They’re better than the truth sometimes. This was one of those times.

    Besides all the utter stupidity of what he said, given where he’s going and when. Just selfishly? should have kept his trap shut. Inisde voice, Adam. Inside voice. Learn it, embrace it.

  • sr4mjc

    Besides all the utter stupidity of what he said, given where he’s going and when. Just selfishly? should have kept his trap shut. Inisde voice, Adam. Inside voice. Learn it, embrace it.

    Well, all this is predicated upon the notion that he even stated any of that. He could very well of said that he really didn’t care for it and they wrote it as something far worse. We have no clue one way or the other. But it’s guilty until proven innocent when it comes to printed materials sometimes, and that’s just life, no matter who you are.

    But you know, this whole, “she has dd problems, so should be excused and pitied for her bad behaviors”? Just not buying it. My roommate has dd issues. He was stillborn for 7 minutes, leaving him with all sorts of mental and physical problems, yet he still understands right from wrong, even if he tends to be social blind at times. Yes he can be moody and cause scenes sometimes, but he most certainly hates when people try to treat him differently because of those problems. Maybe she’s different, but I know several individuals with such problems, and they all feel the same as well.

    I’d still like to know what preceded ‘I know’ before his quote. He obviously was responding to something the interviewer said. From what I’ve read the British press takes the piss out of Subo too so if he got caught up in a joke and the quotes were taken literally, than he needs to realize that when he does these interviews. He’s pretty good with media, but he’s still learning. Or maybe he doesn’t care? I have no idea.

    I loved Dilana’s version of Ring of Fire on Rockstar and was so excited when I read the spoilers that he was doing it. I was so surprised people hated it! Maybe he was a little too? Although he did say the makeup and hair were the first time a little bit out there, so I guess he did know it was a risk.

He’s gotten the winner money (as we’ve seen) the winner gigs and he’s gotten commercials for the past few weeks on AI a the winner. If Adam got stuff outside of 19, and he did, than that’s outside of 19. If Adam generated interest at EW, or Rolling Stone or because of TfM/2012, that’s not something 19 can control or set up.

    I don’t get that kind of bitterness by Kris’s friends, or whomever. Though I do get feeling the need to have their back.

If the news hasn’t picked up on his anemic album sales, they are not gonna care about him whining about PR either whether it is to his friends or anyone else. I think Kris has been upset for a while. Who starts talking about the changes they would make about their next album when this one is only 3 mths old? To me, Kris has given several small hints that he is not satisfied with things.

    I learned long ago (the hard way, I might add) to not assume anything in life. Bites you in the ass everytime.

    I love Adam’s lack of filter, as do many others obviously. Is it going to give him trouble on occasion? Definately. Will he eventually learn to curb it a little bit? Probably. He comes by this trait honestly though. If you follow Neil and Eber at all on Twitter, they’re about as cynical, snarky and honest as they come. This is how Adam was raised and how he’s lived his entire life. Give him time, he’ll work it out. He’s an intelligent guy. Regardless of any so called experience he’s had with performing, traveling, etc., it in no way compares to the mega celebrity he’s experiencing right now. He deserves a little time to adjust IMO.

  • Keel

    But you know, this whole, “she has dd problems, so should be excused and pitied for her bad behaviors”?

    Not that I’ve been keeping track but what bad behaviors are you referring to? If anything, all I’ve heard is mostly weird, nervous breakdown type behavior — which is not so much bad behavior as they are symptoms that she is not really suited for this type of life (octane-fueled fame). And as to that, her mild disabilities and relatively sheltered (former) life would seem to be relevant to why she seems to be ill-equipped to handle her newfound fame.

    It’s for a magazine interview, somehow I don’t think there will be video. And it’s my opinion that Adam did say what he will be actually quoted as saying. But I also remain thinking that the MSNBC article mischaracterizes what he is saying.

    But we’ll know soon enough whether I was right or not.

    Sorry poor choice of words. I was actually thinking about the airport incident.. but (like anyone I can google) this is a snippet of that was at the very top of the list.

    “The breakout star from Scotland, who shot to fame on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009, reportedly came in The Mill Café near her hometown in West Lothian on Monday, January 11. She unleashed profanity words as she arrived.”

    It goes on and on. I usually believe about 1/2 of what I hear or read, but this is what popped up. It just reinforces my personal position on this. If she did want any of this or if it was too much, she could have walked away from all of it. Subo was probably brought up reasonably well, I’m guessing, and still knows right from wrong. She may have some developmental issues, but she is an adult, that makes adult decisions. I think she should be proud of her accomplishments and at the same time take responsibility for her actions.

    I don’t want this conversation to digress.. so I’ll just leave it at this.

    Your right, the media won’t care, because they don’t think he has a interesting story to tell. Maybe tomorrows performance will get the press interested in him and his music. I am no Kris Allen fan, but he should get a really nice boost to his album tomorrow and a small bump to his single. If the song he’s doing for Haiti clicks with the audience, he could sells a lot of singles. This publicity will help Haiti, while getting him recognition and more record sells.

    If Kris is not happy with his album, he will get the second album to do it the way he wants. All three of the Idols were so rushed to complete their albums and I am sure they wished they could have had more time.

  • Parabola

    Interesting to hear a friend of Kris not sounding happy with his PR. It’s not that Kris is getting the Taylor treatment, but I don’t think they’re exactly maximizing his potential, either. I would have made very different choices in how he’s been marketed if it had been up to me.

    Or maybe Adam had a Samantha Power “monster” moment and his meant it to be off the record, and it wasn’t.

    Eh, as I said, we’ll see.

    I think Kris is fine, though I can see how his friends might feel that he isn’t being pushed more. Heck, Kris may not have even given them any indication that he’s unhappy. Sometimes those who care the most see things that aren’t really there in their over protectiveness.

  • https://twitter.com/pmhowden undercooked

    In regards to the Adam bashing on boards, I suspect it’s the same people who tear into him on every board.

    Also, if the story about SuBo spewing profanities is true, perhaps she is not a very nice person? Perhaps she was rude to Adam on Oprah? Who knows? Just because she has some developmental issues doesn’t mean she is necessarily nice.

    Should Adam have allowed himself to be quoted they way he was? No. Maybe he thought he was off the record and just having a laugh with the reporter. Lesson learned. I just think what Adam said is what a lot of people have thought and said about SuBo’s album. They just didn’t get quoted.

  • https://twitter.com/pmhowden undercooked

    I wonder if the PR stuff is taking it’s toil on Kris and Adam’s friendship. I found it odd that Kris didn’t go to Adam’s birthday party, even though Anoop, Allison, Simon Fuller, Slash etc., were all there. He could have taken a break from rehearsing and gone for a couple of hours.

    I think it has to be hard on Kris at times. It would be natural to have some resentment, (if he does) about Adam’s fame, even though it is nobody’s fault. 19 is treating Kris like the winner. It’s just the media is treating Adam like an up and coming star, like a Kesha.

    By the way, has Kris spun WWFN yet on his guest DJ gig this week?

  • HermeticallySealed

    Meh, bashing occurs in all articles, no matter who it is about. It could be about a Good Samaritan rescuing a litter of newborn kittens from a fire and you’d probably get a host of people calling them “f*ckin moron” for risking their lives. Internet anonymity seems to exponentially degrade people’s behavoir.

    Best thing to do is honestly just ignore the comment section on articles.

  • Keel

    Adam is getting TORE UP in the comments section on this story.

    http://boards.msn.com/Musicboards/thread.aspx?ThreadID=1654559

    Eh, the people who comment on those stories are gonna say mean and nasty things about Adam no matter what. The story just gives them an opportunity to spew their dislike.

    The real danger in this story IMO is that it may serve to highlight to the general public Adam’s low album sales — especially when it is compared side by side with SuBo’s. Given Adam’s ubiquity in the press, I think people will expect that he has already sold more than he has thereby creating the perception that he is a failure or basically all hype with no numbers to back it up. Although the general public nowadays is generally aware that album sales are way down, I don’t think people have really quite adjusted their expectations to fit around the fact that very few albums go platinum nowadays. (I know how fans on this very board had to get adjusted to the fact that both guys’ album sales weren’t going to blow up big right away and basically reducing their expectations each and every week as they began to see the diminished opening numbers that established recording acts were getting.) Anyway, if this story continues to gain traction (which it may not), I think it could create a real perception problem for him — and Kris (because he’ll get dragged into this as well). I’m saying this because they did feature this story on Inside Edition tonight and compared his numbers to Susan’s and I thought the comparison was pretty stark.

  • https://twitter.com/pmhowden undercooked

    I’m saying this because they did feature this story on Inside Edition tonight and compared his numbers to Susan’s and I thought the comparison was pretty stark.

    I didn’t see the show. But SuBo’s numbers are going to dwarf everyone else’s numbers, especially those who released albums around the same time as she did.

    Seriously, is her album so good that it warrants those sales? And if it’s not that good, why is she selling that much?

  • Truthiness

    Should Adam have allowed himself to be quoted they way he was? No. Maybe he thought he was off the record and just having a laugh with the reporter. Lesson learned. I just think what Adam said is what a lot of people have thought and said about SuBo’s album. They just didn’t get quoted.

    Well according to the article, the reporter and Adam were in their pjs for the interview. So maybe Adam did let himself get too comfortable, or thought things were off record, that weren’t. But sure people have thought that about SuBo, and said it. I know I have said pretty much everything he said, but we’re not fellow artists.

    Problem is that I don’t think it will be lesson learned. I have seen no evidence to suggest that Adam gets a clue about fallout from things he does. AMAs, his cover, this…not a clue. It’s discouraging on a lot of levels.

    She’s selling because of her story

    That must be it. I haven’t listened to her album and didn’t read any reviews. I decided to google a review and found this one on CNN.

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/Music/11/23/susan.boyle.album.review/index.html

    Susan Boyle’s debut: Dream or nightmare?

    The review says some nice things about her tone, but then concludes as follows.

    Listening to Boyle’s record feels strangely monochrome. Her fame’s roots lie not in her talent, but in the few short minutes that she overturned our perceptions of those who deserve fame: she is a foil to the young and the beautiful.

    Without seeing her dowdy frame standing in front of a microphone, the impact of her voice fades. It’s not a pleasant lesson for us: if she were pretty, ordinarily pretty, she’d be a haphazardly employed cruise singer. She stands out by being remarkably plain.

  • Truthiness

    By the way, has Kris spun WWFN yet on his guest DJ gig this week?

    Hey, it’s only Wednesday, he has a few days. Of course IIRC, Adam spun LLWD twice in his week.

    I found it odd that Kris didn’t go to Adam’s birthday party, even though Anoop, Allison, Simon Fuller, Slash etc., were all there. He could have taken a break from rehearsing and gone for a couple of hours.

    I’m going to be honest here, watch out Adam run for money here, I did think it a bit odd as well. I mean I think they guys are friends, you have only to watch their MTV before the Kradison concert interview, or see them on stage and well, my Kradison heart is all melty. But I dunno, something about it just struck me as, why not just bop in for a bit, not like it would take that much time from rehersal. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just being bitter because I wanted some Kris/Adam and Kris/Adam/Allison pictures from the party. Could be.

    I’ve always thought this was odd. Kris found time to hang out with Matt the next day. You find time to do what you want to do in life.
    Speaking of which, Adam played LLWD twice during his week of dj duties. He never played WWFM.

  • Parabola

    I wonder if the PR stuff is taking it’s toil on Kris and Adam’s friendship. I found it odd that Kris didn’t go to Adam’s birthday party, even though Anoop, Allison, Simon Fuller, Slash etc., were all there. He could have taken a break from rehearsing and gone for a couple of hours.

    What? They were hugging all over each other at the Kradison concert, which was after Adam’s birthday party. I don’t know why people are determined to believe that they don’t get along. I think it’s more that the last time Adam, Kris and Katy were all publicly in the same place, you got this kind of writeup about it: http://www.nypost.com/p/blogs/popwrap/idol_love_that_shall_not_speak_its_zof7c91affxk2K5ZhnbFEJ

    But now that I’m seeing this trio in their natural habitat, I wonder if Kris’ wifey is suddenly sympathizing with Alma Del Mar? Maybe just a bit?

    Alma was one of the wives in Brokeback Mountain, BTW. That was the night of the US Magazine party, with that interview where Kris seemed fairly eager to point out that certain kind of ring Adam was wearing (even though Kris must have that seen glove back when Adam wore it months earlier on Good Morning America). Yes, the NY Post is a total rag. And to hear Kris fans tell it, TMZ practically forced him to tell a paparazzo that the Tiger Woods scandal was giving his wife bad dreams about him cheating. But even if they shouldn’t have asked, he still said it. If the tabloids were at all interested in pursuing an entirely different angle than Kris and Adam being in a feud…let’s face it, it’s not like gossip rags haven’t written up affair stories based on much less, with male/female stars.

    I’m not saying that anything is going on, but maybe someone from Team Kris is a little a lot worried about perceptions and people getting the wrong idea about their friendship. Which is maybe another reason why Kris stopped replying back to Adam on Twitter for the most part, why Kris had such a clipped response when asked about Adam’s AMAs performance, why you now get posed photos of Kris and Allison at an event, of Kris/Kara/Adam, of Adam/Kara, but just Kris and Adam? Not so much these days. There have been other Idol bromances before but not any that were at least half “canon” as far as the attraction goes. And Kris’s response to it…there’s sounding like you don’t mind the idea and sounding like you really don’t mind the idea. And I think maybe Kris’s PR people are somewhat paranoid about it seeming like the latter for him.

  • tiger92

    I think Kris has been upset for a while. Who starts talking about the changes they would make about their next album when this one is only 3 mths old? To me, Kris has given several small hints that he is not satisfied with things.

    You are probably right about the media – I can see this as a probable outcome. This second half makes me sad, but I’ve been picking up on something here too. I was just hoping that he was tired.

    I’ve been picking up on a general dissatisfaction with things also. It was strange that Kris talked so much and so soon about his next album. Maybe he needs to talk the one he has out up some. Kris might need to focus on promoting his debut album that he JUST RELEASED.

  • dhunken

    My view on Kris not being at Adam’s Birthday is basically not such a big deal. I think Kris intended on going as he did tweet that he was going to see Adam later at his party. Maybe the rehearsal took longer then expected. (from the Malaysia concerts videos was well worth the extra time he took) Beside if I recall correct Adam missed Kris birthday party because he had a photo shoot for a magazine. These guys both understand that this is their time they need to seize opportunity when it is available. I am sure Kris talked to Adam and they are both fine with each-other. (I know shocking that we are not aware of the personal conversation or text messages or e-mails that the two share with each other.) So don’t think there is much here to even be concerned about. IMHO

  • Truthiness

    I don’t see how anyone could talk knowledgeably about this subject, or why anyone would care deeply about this. But, Kris’ band only had a couple of days to rehearse before they left for Asia, and on top of that, they had a new drummer who had to learn all of the songs in that short time frame. I won’t even go into the matter of Kris needing to sleep before he left.

    I wasn’t saying it was speaking knowledgeably. I said I found it a bit odd, and hey, Kris could take a break from rehersals before he left to hang with Matt a few hours. So guess he had some time. Plus there is my overriding probable motivation of being bitter over not having more cute Kradison Kris/Adam pictures. So yes, I do have an admitted motive and bias. Not trying to hide it. But f’reals, I did find it just a bit…disappointing. It doesn’t take much to just poke your head into a friends party. But Kris might just have wanted to go to a party that. Been there, done that. Of course I’m a hermit nowadays, so parties are pretty much an anathema to me.

    Speaking of which, Adam played LLWD twice during his week of dj duties. He never played WWFM

    Well to be fair, WWFM wasn’t on their playlist back then. And Kris still has two more days. And it’s not a big deal if he doesn’t play it.

    And I’ve been put into a seriously pissy mood by SuBo-gate. I’m off to rewatch last week’s Project Runway with kids. Good clothes, the right winner, the right person went home, cute kids. I think another fix of it.

    Maybe Kris just didn’t feel like going?

  • vtu

    If I recall correctly, the reason Kris has talked about his next album has been because reporters have asked him about it. Maybe it’s not perfect PR, but I think Kris is too honest to say that he thinks KATA is perfect and he wouldn’t change a thing. He’s an artist; of course there are going to be things he thinks he could improve. But he’s always said he’s happy with KATA and proud of the work he did on it in the time he had to produce it. Beyond that, as a fan, I’m excited to hear that he’s working on new stuff, because I can never have too many Kris songs.

    I’ve also listened to just about every Kris interview out there, and he’s nothing but complimentary about his mgmt team. He gushes about them whenever anyone asks him how that relationship has panned out for him, and the kid has no poker face, so I believe him.

  • dhunken

    As far as the Adam/Susan Boyle issue….Whether he was mis-quoted or Mis-characterized the point is the purpose of the faux quote was to paint him in a negative light and make him appear vile and evil-handed, insensitive and unconscionable. Now this is not to say he may be a little of those things at times (he is human) but it is not the basis of his character as the blogger and others are so tirelessly trying to portray him. IMHO ( I am not saying that anyone on this blog does. I am really not. I am talking about news article and blogs across the internet)

    Well to be fair, WWFM wasn’t on their playlist back then. And Kris still has two more days. And it’s not a big deal if he doesn’t play it.

    Did you see all the OLD songs Adam played during his five nights? There were a lot of songs he played that weren’t in the top 20 YET or hadn’t been there for 5 or 10 years. I believe he could have played his own song. It would have appeared a bit shallow and self-centered if he did.
    Now that I think about it, I could see where people would have called him on that if he played WWFM. I guess that’s one gate Adam avoided. LOL
    I’m not holding my breath for Kris to play WWFM. He has never taken the opportunity to say one word of praise about Adam’s album or his single. Adam has been very up front with his praise for both Kris’ and Allison’s music. (Ex: Kradison interview w/ Jim) Adam is such a loyal and devoted friend.

Too bad some of their fans can’t follow their lead. YMMV.

    um, what? Just a couple of examples. Not to mention he always praises Adam’s music when asked about it (although interviewers typically just ask him about the AMA performance or other stupid crap like that)

    I’m not talking about the whole two or three tweets Kris managed to send out over the past 6 months about Adam. Find some words in a print interview or tv/live interview where Kris praises Adam’s music. The best I’ve heard is “Adam is Adam” in the L. Parker interview. But, Kris went on to praise Allison’s music in the same interview.
    Adam actually uses phrases and sentences to praise Kris and his music when asked. (Example: the latest Kradison interview)
    And when interviewers asked Kris about the AMAs, he couldn’t manage a few words of support either. Danny, Michael, Anoop and Allison didn’t have problems putting words together to make phrases that showed their support of their friend.
    It is okay. Kris doesn’t have to support Adam. I don’t even expect it anymore, but it is something that fans have noticed. The first couple of months, excuses could be made. But after several months-it became a pattern and it was obvious. Whatever…they’ve gone their separate ways and IMO, it was time. :)

  • Parabola

    what did Kris’s friend tweet that has got people speculating about Kris and Adam’s friendship?

    Nothing, really. It’s two separate conversations. Kris’s friend had a Twitter party yesterday and when asked what he’d do if he won the lottery, he said he’d buy 19 and do an overhaul of the PR department. This led to speculation about whether Kris is unhappy with the direction of his album and the way he’s being marketed so far, with references to different Kris comments which made people think he was unsatisfied or pleased with how he’s being promoted.

    Then someone brought up career pressure putting a strain on Kris and Adam’s friendship and that was why Kris snubbed Adam’s big birthday bash, but had time to hang out with Matt Giraud the next day. Most people are just going with the theory that Kris was probably just busy or tired, and nothing is wrong with their friendship, since they seemed perfectly happy to be around each other at the Kradison concert which was post-Adam’s birthday.

    oh. I saw Charles’s twitter party and that response about 19. I didn’t think anything of it except maybe Charles doesn’t think 19 is promoting Kris enough or in the right way. Kris seems happy enough — the most he’s ever said is that he wishes he had had more time to work on his record. That’s a pretty standard complaint from people coming off Idol, though.

    and I didn’t think much of Kris not going to Adam’s party. I figured they saw each other before or after the party, or that Kris let Adam know that he wouldn’t be coming. We know they sat together at Clive Davis’s party the very next day and they seemed fine with each other. And they looked happy to be together at the Kradison concert. They aren’t together 24/7 like they were before, so it’s only natural if they aren’t quite as close. But I haven’t seen or heard anything that suggests their friendship is strained

    I’ve heard most of Kris’s interviews and he has had nothing but good things to say about Adam and his music when asked about it. But in my opinion, there is no reason for Kris to feel like he needs to constantly praise him. Adam has said great things about the other Idols, but it’s not like he talks about them in every interview. Nor, in my opinion, is there any reason for him to do so. It’s not their jobs to publicly praise their friends. If I were Adam or Kris, I wouldn’t want to say much publicly about the other, since everything they DO say gets overanalyzed by either the tinhatters who want them to be romantically involved, or by the fans who are sick and tired of the whole Kradam thing and wnat them to go their separate ways or who want to read hidden meanings into everything to show that the two guys really don’t get along. In my opinion, the whole thing is more than a little silly. Adam’s career doesn’t depend on what Kris says about him or his music. Kris’s career doesn’t revolve around what Adam thinks of him or his music. If Adam wants to speak up and praise/support his friends, that’s great. If he doesn’t, that’s fine too. Same thing with Kris.

    BTW, I haven’t seen Danny say or tweet support of the other Idols’ albums or singles, yet no one is harping on that, now are they? But again, it’s not Danny’s job to praise anyone. It’s up to him what he wants to say about Adam, Kris or anyone else. IMO, it’s not important enough for me to get worked up about.

    I guess because I’m not in middle school I don’t actually care who went to whose birthday party or who doesn’t tweet who. I don’t think there are any ulterior motives in Kris not spinning WWFM on the radio. I think Kris is a great guy, Adam is a great guy, and they have full, interesting, creative lives, and are too busy with their lives to spend time being petty and spiteful and jealous. .

    Thank you and well said!

    He has never taken the opportunity to say one word of praise about Adam’s album or his single. Adam has been very up front with his praise for both Kris’ and Allison’s music. (Ex: Kradison interview w/ Jim) Adam is such a loyal and devoted friend.

    I guess when you are not a fan of someone you don’t follow their interviews and of course that’s totally understandable but then you might have false facts or no facts at all to base your opinion on certain things. There are many examples, but I will just suggest 2 interviews where Kris talks about WWFM, since there is all this discussion about him not having played WWFM yet on 104.3MYfm (if in the end he doesn’t play it at all then it’s maybe because when Kris recorded this the station hasn’t added yet WWFM to their playlist (I read this on twitter, so….yeah, I don’t have all the facts, so I want make any conclusions ;-))and not because he doesn’t like it or Adam and doesn’t support him etc.)
    1.The iTunes Download
    http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?i=80486567&id=303030234. Kris hosted the show 1/22 (just click on it),if you don’t want to listen to the whole thing just go at 20:05 “I love this song, I really do, he let me listen to this song…and I said ‘man, this is an incredible song, you should make it your first single’…” .

    2.interview on Alice 97.5 (http://mjsbigblog.com/kris-allen-heads-to-haiti-kicks-off-igb-thursday-february-25-with-a-performance-and-a-fundraiser.htm) at 4:00. OK actually there is no discussion about Adam or WWFM but Kris still manages to mention him for a second just because of something the interviewer said, it’s funny, I think. I guess if he didn’t like him or the song his mind would’t immediately go there or even if it did he wouldn’t mention it (though I’m not sure the interviewer got it, lol, but it’s OK).

    Very well said and I completely agree.

    I have a feeling Adam will make Palin go gaga over him, like he did with the ladies from THE VIEW! Should be an interesting episode!

    Lol – very true. But we need our fabricated DRAMA ;-)

    Adam has said great things about the other Idols, but it’s not like he talks about them in every interview.

    No, Adam does not talk about the other idols in every interview. Who said he does? But, WHEN ASKED about them or their music he has no problem forming words to actually praise their music. It doesn’t take much.

    Nor, in my opinion, is there any reason for him to do so. It’s not their jobs to publicly praise their friends.

    The “reason” is called friendship. No, it is not any of their “jobs” to say nice things about their friend’s music.(when asked) It is just common courtesy and something most friends readily do. It doesn’t take much.

    In my opinion, the whole thing is more than a little silly. Adam’s career doesn’t depend on what Kris says about him or his music. Kris’s career doesn’t revolve around what Adam thinks of him or his music.

    IMO it isn’t silly at all to want to hear kind words from your friends about something you put your heart and soul into. I’m sure any of the idols greatly appreciate when they read or hear that one of the people that they shared this unique experience with has publically supported their efforts.
    I don’t think either one of their careers revolve around what each other thinks or says. That is what would be silly.
    It is just a simple observation on my part. Some fans have noticed it as a pattern and find it disappointing.

    BTW, I haven’t seen Danny say or tweet support of the other Idols’ albums or singles, yet no one is harping on that, now are they? But again, it’s not Danny’s job to praise anyone. It’s up to him what he wants to say about Adam, Kris or anyone else. IMO, it’s not important enough for me to get worked up about.

    Danny has tweeted in support of all the others, more than once in some cases. And he regularly says nice things about Adam and Kris during interviews. It will be nice if some of the others do the same when Danny’s album comes out next week. (Michael Sarver already did today, after having clearly been impressed seeing Danny “blow it out of the water” in performing at the big CRS 2010 event in Nashville yesterday.)

    I have to say though, I don’t like to try judging these folks relationships or support for each other by what they publicly tweet, as if they have to prove something to us or be suspected of some disharmony or lack of loyalty if we’re not satisfied.

    Most of them have said in interviews that they talk or text behind the scenes, and get together in person when they can. Danny said in an interview this month that he had contact with all or nearly all of the other top 10, to include seeing Matt and Scott both in person, and talking by phone or text with Kris. Just tonight saw Megan tweeting to Danny. I imagine there is even closer contact with those who are working and living near each other, like those based in LA or regularly visiting there to work on their music.
