Adam Lambert Season 9 Finale Drama

The life of Adam Lambert is never lacking in drama, is it? And somehow, when the news story isn’t about him (like the American Idol finale that he never planned to attend–see tweets below) it somehow becomes about him. Funny that.

Late last night, in response to this Popeater gossip item claiming that Adam was cut from the Idol finale after blowing off Idol rehearsals, Adam took to twitter to blast “certain journalists and jealous people in the industry trying to stir up bullshit drama.”   Read his tweets, after the jump.

Meanwhile, Adam’s reps tell Entertainment Weekly that the story was “completely fabricated”, that Adam was approached by Idol producers to be part of the Simon Cowell tribute that 7 out of 8 Idol winners and a slew of Idol alums  took part in, but came down with a case of laryngitis over the weekend.

#Would have loved 2 have been at the Idol Finale to wish Simon farewell and support the finalists, but this tour for my fans is my priority.

#HAHA. I have now just been made aware of more gossip and rumormill: First of all, i was never asked to appear on the finale in any capacity.

Adam says he was never asked to perform on the finale, but his reps tell Entertainment Weekly that he was asked, but came down with Laryngitis over the weekend. Either way, I don’t think Adam was ever planning to attend the finale. How has this turned into such a big drama?
