Idol Headlines for 09/16/10 – The Evening Edition

PHOTOS: American Idol Star Adam Lambert Fights With A Photographer

According to an eyewitness, Adam was partying on the beach with friends and was being photographed for a while, which seemed to wear on his nerves.

After about one hour, Adam asked one particular photographer to leave but the photographer told him that he couldn’t leave until Adam had left.

As Adam and his buddies packed up to go, the photographer was allegedly in front of them snapping pictures when Adam started chasing the photographer.

Wearing turquoise shorts, a tank top and black fingernail polish, Adam allegedly raced after the photographer and tried to grab his camera.

See the photos at Radar Online.  There are more photos HERE.

Adam responds, “They’re real good at provoking, but there ain’t any pics or video of the b.s. they spew out… Haha well… I lost my temper for a sec but wow it felt great lol MIAMI!!!” and “Hahha the photos are hilarious !! Lol please everyone forgive me for that hat. – I was attempting a disguise- clearly failed. Hahah”

Fantasia Interview Exclusive: Fantasia Talks About Healing In Public

In advance of the second season of Fantasia for Real (premiering Sunday, September 19 at 10/9c), we spoke to Fantasia Barrino about living her life as an open book both on and off VH1. Fantasia has told the story of her recent suicide attempt already and, as we revealed yesterday in our post about her run-in with TMZ, she’s not interested in talking about it anymore. But a single incident is not really what fascinates us about her, anyway. Rather, it is how she handled the situation — instead of running from controversy like so many other celebrities would via requests for privacy, she faced it head-on. That’s part of the bigger picture of Fantasia, the woman who lives life boldly through her music, her show and her interviews. As she tells us below, “The things that I go through come to make me strong, make me a better woman and they are my testimony. So I just give them my testimony.”

WMCTV: Full-body scanners at Nashville, Memphis airports

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The federal Transportation Security Administration on Thursday unveiled a new full-body scanning device at the Nashville International Airport they hope will be more convenient for travelers and help them feel safer.

Nevertheless, “American Idol” finalist Danny Gokey said the “radiation” used in the device still concerns him. Gokey, who finished third on last season’s show, went through the scanner Thursday before catching his flight. But before doing so, he commented to reporters: “I kind of want to opt out of it.”

Lady Gaga, Pink Usher In New Age Of Pop Spectacle

Popular music has always been about putting on a show. From the psychedelic fantasias of 1970s rockers Pink Floyd to Madonna’s many Vegas-like tours, KISS’ relentless pyro attack, the boy-band glitter parades of the early 2000s and the over-the-top plans for Michael Jackson’s never-mounted This is It farewell shows, major artists have always tried to pony up a big show for their fans.

And now, thanks to a new generation of visually acute music stars, we could be living in a new age of the great pop spectacle. From Muse’s massive stadium light show to Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball outing and Pink’s Cirque du Soleil-like Funhouse Tour, artists are going above and beyond in an effort to give their fans a never-ending, eye-popping extravaganza.

America’s Got Talent: The Season 5 Winner Speaks

Last night saw an America’s Got Talent finals that included a 10-year-old opera-singing prodigy and a man named Poppycock, so some were surprised to hear America voted 30-year-old Michael Grimm as the winner. But when you remove all the bells and whistles, the soulful, silky smooth, singer from Mississippi was consistent week after week, proving to the judges that he wasn’t just another guitar player (he even lost his signature hat at their request!). The lovable Grimm took some time out of his hectic day to call EW and attempt to process his big win. Read on for more about his future music plans, commitment to give back to the Gulf Region, and promise to buy his grandparents a house (Aw).

  1. awwwww omg! The vid of Archie is basically a singing vid! haha. Sooooo cute singing those little girls a song.

  2. Those two girls will be so thrilled to have their very own song from Archie. what a great feature!!!! Brings out the SMILE for the rest of us.

    Happy Susan got her wish to sing for the POPE and was able to carry through.

  3. Oh he’s just incredibly sweet and uber talented. And cute, did I mention cute?

  4. abbysee: I agree totally. I think David A. is a very good soul. And so talented. I love his voice.

  5. Good for Adam. Katy Perry was screaming at some paps yesterday too. These maggots have no boundaries. (Insert joke here..)

  6. Archie is such a cutie and what a voice he has. Those girls will remember him singing them very own song forever.

    Good for Adam. Katy Perry was screaming at some paps yesterday too. These maggots have no boundaries. (Insert joke here..)

    I agree the press don’t understand or respect the right of stars not be hounded by them. But I am sure Adam will be getting a call from his management, who in turn will be getting a call from RCA, about Adam getting physical with the paps. He should have taken a bodyguard alone and had the big guy do his fighting or intimidating for him.

  8. Oh, poor Adam. He’s usually so accomodating with the press that once in a while like this won’t hurt him (unless someone tries to press charges of course). (I feel guilty for looking, but I know my own weakness) You can tell his friends (Taylor) are trying to calm him down. I bet he just really needs a vacation. We all get to the point in our jobs/lives where we’ve just had it. I hope he can take a day or two between Washington and heading to Singapore and just be in LA with his friends.

  9. Archie is so cute in that video. He is so sweet to those little girls. They will remember him singing to them.

  10. And is Brooke mooning the pap? LOL

    haha I do believe she did LOL

  11. lmfao at the alternating Archie/ Adam comments here.

    According to his tweets- the paps must have been saying harrassing things to him:

    They’re real good at provoking, but there ain’t any pics or video of the b.s. they spew out… Haha well… I (cont) http://tl.gd/62qkrg

    Eeew paparazzi killed my peaceful afternoon on the beach! #howisthisok?
    12 minutes ago via Twitter for iPhone

  12. Who needs a bodyguard when you have a friend like that who’s got your back – or offered her own…

  13. If you look at the pics you can see the photographer was laughing. He must have been pretty pleased that he was getting those shots of Adam being pissed. I can only imagine what he said to Adam to get that kind of a reaction out of him. This really pisses me off.

    The turqoise pants tick me off too, but not as much :P

    And love the moon shot. Ya gotta love that Glamnation crew. Where the hell did the bodyguard go to? So many questions….

  14. omg that just made my night! this will sell another 10K downloads, so ill take it lol

  15. Hope it’s a good sign that the pap was laughing. Wonder if other paps were taking the pictures of the attack. If they split their proceeds with the “victim” maybe there won’t be any charges.

    He was actually just attacking the camera anyway! :mrgreen:

  16. There’s not much that John Mayer says that I take seriously but I did take this one epic blog to heart where he defended James Cameron after some paparazzi video drama. What he said is the paparazzi lots of times purposely tries to get a rise out of their targets because it’ll get them pictures that sell for more.

    I haven’t looked at the Adam pictures or anything but IMHO the benefit of the doubt belongs with the paparazzi target not the paparazzi when we don’t know the whole story. The paparazzi are parasites and they prey on human weaknesses.

  17. I always hated Adam. Then I saw the news “Adam fights photographer” I think Adam I’m biggest fan of yours. After seeing those photos, I hate Adam again !

  18. I haven’t looked at the pictures or anything but IMHO the benefit of the doubt belongs with the paparazzi target not the paparazzi when we don’t know the whole story.

    Sorry but two wrongs don’t make a right. I don’t care what the paparazzi said, Adam doesn’t have the right to put his hands on anyone. Sorry he just doesn’t.

  19. Um yes seriously. His hands are all over the photographer. Sorry, but he needs to learn a bit of self control.

    Seeing at the reports are that the paps were there for an hour, I would say he has better self control than most people I know, especially given the rude things that the guy allegedly said. My take on the pictures is that Adam was trying to get the camera, not injure the guy. Though I wouldn’t blame him for wanting to injure the pap.

    BTW, to sue and actually recover you need damages. From the reports, the pap wasn’t injured and his camera was not damaged.

  20. Aww forget it, I’m not even gonna get into this with you, as much as I wish that he could have just been calm and walked away, Adam is far from a saint, but as patient as Adam seemed to have been with the paps for all this time, and usually ignores them without being seriously rude when he clearly doesn’t want to be bothered, I really think that the pap must have said/done something extremely provoking to get Adam this riled up to react in such a way, as this happened after Adam told them to leave when they were bothering them for over an hour, and after they wouldn’t, they got up to leave, and they continued to harass him.

    I’m a bit upset at Adam for this, but i really don’t think that the blame is all on him, even if the paps are part of the whole celebrity deal…

  21. The real tragedy of the story is the tank top.

    Heh. The first thing that popped into my mind, seeing the pics, was the fight scene from Bridget Jones’ Diary. My take: the press is an ass for hounding people, but given that they do (and given that a sad fraction of this country is willing to sue whenever they can, regardless of whether there is any actual harm done) celebs like Adam need to find a way to not snap at the bait.

  22. Sorry but two wrongs don’t make a right. I don’t care what the paparazzi said, Adam doesn’t have the right to put his hands on anyone. Sorry he just doesn’t.

    I agree that two wrongs don’t make a right. But I can’t blame him. He deserves a break. We don’t know what it is like because we don’t have people constantly intruding into our business and intentionally trying to get a rise out of us. I know some great, calm, patient people who would have reacted the same or worse. The pap wasn’t hurt. I don’t like when people are physical, but honestly, when you weigh both sides, Adam still wins, in my opinion. We all have a breaking point.

    Also, if two wrongs never made a right legally, then we wouldn’t have the concept of self-defensive. Mothers couldn’t protect young, etc.

  23. Sorry but two wrongs don’t make a right. I don’t care what the paparazzi said, Adam doesn’t have the right to put his hands on anyone. Sorry he just doesn’t.

    Oh please. The pap is laughing! Adam’s not assaulting him, he’s trying to get the camera. If he tried to press charges with that shit eating grin on his face, a judge would laugh him out of court. The maggot knows he caused the money shots after an hour of bugging Adam got the reaction he was going for.

    It sucks for Adam, but I applaud him for not being a doormat. Makes me wonder what else is on the camera that Adam may have wanted back.

  24. Adam’s reaction was inappropriate, but understandable. Nah. “Go get him, Adam!!!”

  25. There’s not much that John Mayer says that I take seriously but I did take this one epic blog to heart where he defended James Cameron after some paparazzi video drama. What he said is the paparazzi lots of times purposely tries to get a rise out of their targets because it’ll get them pictures that sell for more.

    I haven’t looked at the Adam pictures or anything but IMHO the benefit of the doubt belongs with the paparazzi target not the paparazzi when we don’t know the whole story. The paparazzi are parasites and they prey on human weaknesses.

    I read that too Windmills and it was eyeopening. Adam did tweet about the incident prior to any pictures coming out and from his tweet, the photographer did spew something to get a reaction. What’s sad is that now that this pap got a reaction, more will do the same thing and what they say will probably get worse.

  26. Well imagine that… you´re on tour for like 3 months now and has no time of privacy. People follow you everywhere, good press, bad press, good fans, really bad fans and everyone feels they have a right to a piece of you. One time that you get to go to the beach with friends to just chill and rest you have this jerk that keeps saying nasty things to you for one hour. If it was me I would have lost my temper in 15 min. There´s a line you know! Even when you´re a public figure! And especcially with someone who is super nice with everybody, even when they cross the line and even with the jerk paps!

    But wish it didn´t happen because we all know what happens…it´s just an excuse for those who can´t wait to trash him for whatever reason.

  27. It sucks for Adam, but I applaud him for not being a doormat. Makes me wonder what else is on the camera that Adam may have wanted back.

    I teach the young kids I work with that it is never acceptable to put your hands on someone except in self defense, even if it means other people think of you as a “doormat”. I would hope grown adults could abide by this too.

  28. Sorry but two wrongs don’t make a right. I don’t care what the paparazzi said, Adam doesn’t have the right to put his hands on anyone. Sorry he just doesn’t.

    As a major Adam fan, I have to agree. You can’t just physically attack
    someone because you don’t like what they have to say. To me it’s not
    cool, funny, or badass. Terrible judgement call.
    He should of just walked away.

    That said, I’m not going to quit being a fan, I still love his voice.

  29. Wow. Not cool Adam. Not cool at all. Sorry, I can’t defend physically assaulting anyone. If I were that photographer I would press charges. Adam seems to covet fame, so I feel no sympathy for him if he gets followed by paparazzi.

    Yet there are no laws for the continual harrassment celebrities are subjected to. Sorry, but I think you’re WAY off base here. That asshole’s smiling through the whole thing, ringing up dollar signs in his head, and was not damaged in any way shape, or form. There’s nothing to press charges for. I wish that there would be laws passed to put some controls on these jerks – they are bottom feeders of the worst order.

  30. Um yes seriously. His hands are all over the photographer. Sorry, but he needs to learn a bit of self control.

    With these kinds of quotes I see Glamberts enrolling in photography classes nationwide.

  31. adamlambert ‘Hahha the photos are hilarious !! Lol please everyone forgive me for that hat. – I was attempting a disguise- clearly failed. Hahah’

    and adam’s dad is tweeting him digital camera signal jammers. lol

    Recently the City of Los Angeles and the State of California have passed the strictest laws in the US AGAINST the paps.

  34. If I were Adam’s publicist, I’d try to get him to stop tweeting about this.

    On the other hand, as a fan, I adore watching him be as open as he is, and watching the whole fame-learning process. It’ll all be fine. This would be a nice opportunity to burn that tank though.

  35. Recently the City of Los Angeles and the State of California have passed the strictest laws in the US AGAINST the paps.

    It’s about time. After what happened with Princess Diana, these guys really need to be reined in. Too bad FL doesn’t have the same laws.

  36. Well, Adam’s a quick learner – getting slapped around by the usual suspects. It’s a one-timer – got it out of his system. All the tsk-tsking will be gone with the arrival of the next pap victim. (Did his sales actually go up?)

  37. I teach the young kids I work with that it is never acceptable to put your hands on someone except in self defense, even if it means other people think of you as a “doormat”. I would hope grown adults could abide by this too.

    I basically agree with this, I just don’t think the best response is always to press charges. I think, as a society, we jump to that response too quickly and too often. And often it’s done simply because one can, or because there’s money to be had, or because it’s easier than just talking it out.

    And I totally disagree with the idea that it comes with the celeb territory. I teach kids that it’s never acceptable to violate other people’s privacy except in an emergency, even if the other person is really interesting to you. But I’d have to move to another country to find a general population of adults who agree with that.

  38. Considering how patient and gracious Adam always is with paps, interviewers, fans the photographer must have really done or said something to set Adam off. Everyone is entitled to blow their top once in a while and he didn’t hurt the guy, who was smirking the whole time. GO Adam!!!

  39. fanaround: I really like how we hone in on the fashion crime. Maybe all sides can just agree with your suggestion that he needs to burn the offending tank as attonement for his actions.

  40. TommyJoeRatliff

    Don’t let that photo deceive you…. There is NO ass.. My back connects to my legs

  41. See, that makes me sad all over again that he was all serious for that last performance. Because I like him *sassy*, lol. What the heck are on his nipples?!?

    Pasties. Too bad he didn’t do that striptease on the AGT finale. ;)

  42. LOL! Just arrived home from an away swim meet to such interesting news!

    Danny worried about radiation and Adam chasing papparazzi!

    Two S8 guys having media encounters of a unique kind :lol:

  43. But I’d have to move to another country to find a general population of adults who agree with that.

    Which is sad in of itself. Sorry, I have no sympathy for any pap. I have seen the methods they use to antagonize, and no-one can remain that calm for long under that kind of treatment. People have their limits.

    Personally, I have always believed that off the clock time is off limits. When performing, or at a industry function, have at it, but everyone deserves to enjoy their time off. Period.

  44. Danny worried about radiation and Adam chasing papparazzi!

    Danny being in that article did crack me up!

  45. I’m sorry, this thread is amusing tonight. I came from the school of stick up for yourself and protect yourself and those around you that you love. That pap must have said something pretty awful to get that reaction out of him. I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt, especially because of the smile on the paps face.

    For the record, had he punched him, I would not be defending him.

  46. The Danny radiation story is hilarious. Is this turning into a Danny Gokey thread. ;)

  47. Sorry but the paps run people off the road with their infants and little children in the car and pregnant celebs just to get a reaction for a picture. If one did that to me or any member of my family I sure as hell WOULD knock the hell out of them.

  48. LMAO OMG that Hat! Not flattering. The pictures are funny, you gotta admit…even the pap guy is laughing…but I do think he has to be careful and just ignore them. Either that or go to more remote places. Its only gonna get worse from here on out. In the end its not worth it. I mean if him cutting his hair was news than I can only imagine what the media will do with this.

  49. Danny worried about radiation

    THAT was funny. He sounded like my grandma!

    Pasties.

    I don’t know why the pasties made me laugh. The color? As you can tell, I don’t have much experience in the striptease with pasties department ;) Sheltered life I suppose, lol.

  50. I don’t know why the pasties made me laugh. The color? As you can tell, I don’t have much experience in the striptease with pasties department Sheltered life I suppose, lol.

    Actually there is, but this isn’t it, I just find it kind of funny, (have to laugh anyway..) that he’s all about love, and promoting a song about peace and love, and this comes about, just know that some djs etc are gonna be snarking all over this, seems just about the right time, to release sleepwalker already…

  55. With all that activity in his sales, Adam should send the pap a thank-you note.

  60. Danny worried about radiation

    THAT was funny. He sounds like my grandma

    I think he is actually serious, lol! He says he wants a “litter” of kids!

    Radiation is not too friendly for reproduction :lol:

  61. You know if Adam did nothing he would be called a wimp or a sissy because he is gay. On the other hand who knows if this was not some stunt done since he is playing at a baseball stadium tomorrow night and this would kind of give him a don’t screw with me attitude. Very Hetro. Funny thing is if this was A Rapper or hip hop guy it would be thought of as ok. All gays aren’t sissy’s (actually many aren’t) and he didn’t punch him and the Paps guy was not scared as the smiles surely indicate. Adam is many things but an angry man who loses his temper is not a characteristic I would describe him. But all are entitled to their opinion. As always those who like him most likely will not be too bothered those who don’t this will be ammunition for a minute and those who are indifferent will be….indifferent. So its all the same ole same ole. :-)

    Wonder if this will help him the way Fantasia’s Suicide helped her. Wasn’t that going to ruin her….or Kelly’s tirade over Already Gone…..guess not! :mrgreen:

    Anyway just my take and my humble opinion. Oh and I agree with someone above I would guess Adam’s reaction was in defense of one of his friends and not him. But that is just a guess

  62. If Adam can laugh about it, then it’s all good. I think the paparazzi are too invasive. An hour of shooting Adam should have been enough. Plus, what about all that transpired that we didn’t see?

    The paparrazzi are ruthless. I have no sympathy whatsoever for them. And I have a sister who is a professional photojournalist. This pap was waiting for the money shot and he wasn’t getting it, which is why he didn’t leave. He knew that if he waited long enough and was annoying enough, he might get a rise out of Adam. And he did.

    Those photos are pretty hilarious, though. And that hat? ROFL

  63. Just deleted A PILE OF DEFENSIVE POSTS and all the replies.

    Dragging somebody’s favorite Idol into an argument just because they’ve dissed YOUR favorite Idol? Please don’t do that.

    Please don’t question the motives of posters or put words in their mouths.

    If I’ve let you out of moderation, and I’m still deleting your posts? The next time out will be permanent.

  64. Anyway just my take and my humble opinion. Oh and I agree with someone above I would guess Adam’s reaction was in defense of one of his friends and not him. But that is just a guess

    Hey Dhunken…once again well said…and I again with well everything LOL

  65. Sorry but the paps run people off the road with their infants and little children in the car and pregnant celebs just to get a reaction for a picture.

    Some do. I do not believe that was the case in this instance.

    If the pap was throwing insults (I guess he’s entitled to the same “innocent until proven guilty” right as Adam is, but he probably was), I still don’t think Adam’s actions were justified. Adults aren’t allowed to try to wrestle cameras away from others simply because they said something rude. Sticks and stones and all that.

    But, even if he isn’t charged, Adam did himself no favours here. Sure, he’ll get lots of free press for the next few weeks and sell some extra units, but those paps know how he responds to insults now, so they will just ramp it up. They make more money getting shots when Adam attacks than they do with Adam in a goofy hat, so they’ll take it to an entirely new level. You have to just ignore them.

    And that hat is one of the most tragic thingws about this entire event.

    And I don’t know how some of those paps sleep at night.

    And Princess Di is dead because she got in a car with a drunk, drugged-up driver, didn’t wear her seat-belt and didn’t tell the drunk driver to slow the freak down. Still, some of those pap are major scum.

  66. Prince Poppycock has a nice bod!

    He does, I was quite surprised to see those abs for some reason. Of course he didn’t exactly get nekkid on AGT, lol.

    They make more money getting shots when Adam attacks than they do with Adam in a goofy hat, so they’ll take it to an entirely new level.

    That’s why I thought it was a mistake. Feeding the sharks and all that. They now know they can get a rise out of him… so of course they’ll try again.

    I think he is actually serious, lol! He says he wants a “litter” of kids!

    Aww, lol. Well, that’s not *quite* as bad as my grandma who made me sit with my feet on the coffee table during thunderstorms so the lightning wouldn’t come through the floor and kill me? I guess if you fly a lot that’s a bit offputting to deal with that much radiation… me, I fly about once every five years so I’m not so worried!

    And that hat is the most tragic thing about this entire event.

    Adam agrees:

    adamlambert Hahha the photos are hilarious !! Lol please everyone forgive me for that hat. – I was attempting a disguise- clearly failed. Hahah about 1 hour ago via Twitter for iPhone

    Personally, I think he should apologize for the tank too. :)

  68. (Well, and I’m not quite worried like Danny since… I don’t have sperm to safeguard. Heh.)

    OMG…hahahaha your killing me LOL

  73. Personally, I think he should apologize for the tank too

    Can’t argue with you there.

    Somebody needs to tell Adam that a disguise need not equal fugly.

    There is a world of costuming choices between rad-goth-dude and Opie-meets-The-Situation-dressed-as-his-grandpa.

  74. Some do. I do not believe that was the case in this instance.

    No, of course it wasn’t anything that serious this time around. It was just a guy being relentlessly harassed for a period of time, who reached his limit – wonder what that limit would be for each of us? I know mine would be a hell of a lot shorter than Adam’s shown his to be.

    Still, some of those pap are major scum.

    Some? I’d say it’s the definition of the group.

  75. Yeah I agree, Adam really didn’t do himself any favors here, but hopefully like all recent Adam gates, it’ll probably be over within a few days…

    haha!! yeah I sooo agree with you there, that outfit is horrendous, maybe he thought that if he looked so bad, maybe no one will realize that it’s him, and imo I think that Adam really is like 50/50 hit miss, with his fashion ensembles..

  77. There is a world of costuming choices between rad-goth-dude and Opie-meets-The-Situation-dressed-as-his-grandpa.

    haha I haven’t laughed this much in one evening in a long time

  78. Personally, I think he should apologize for the tank too.

    I was not expecting those shorts either. I was thinking Adam would be more, shall we say, European, in his choice of beachwear. (I have male friends who used to be competitive swimmers so I tend to like that look on guys :) ) Whatever it was I expected, I certainly thought it’d be more glam than aqua knee shorts.

    All that said, great pedicure!

  79. No such thing as bad publicity, well it sort of annoys me when people can do nasty, creepy, psycho, violent or just plain anti-social behaviour and they are ‘rewarded’ for it, no wonder the society is in the state its in. Now I am not saying Adam did any of the things mentioned, just a comment on the apparent increase in the i-tunes and twitter just because there was a little spate.

  80. What’re we gonna do when we have to go back to RL after Pullyaup (or whatever it is)? Left a bookmark in some tome about a year ago – here somewhere.

  81. Personally, I think he should apologize for the tank too.

    He reminds me of pretty much every guy I know whose wife is trying to get him to throw out the awful clothes that are his favorites and dress in something they don’t find mortifying. Seems to come with the Y chromosome :D

    For anyone hoping, Adam will never do that again.

    Adam does have an impulsive streak. Despite the fact I’ve been laughing about this, seriously can’t get upset anymore, Adam has just had another lesson on why he needs to keep that impulsive streak on a very short leash. The reality will come when the lawsuit and/or police inquiry starts.

  83. So if you use Google translate on this page for Nominees for Japan’s
    Billboard Music Awards Adam is listed 3rd from the top first column under Billbaord Japan Top Pop Artist 2010 :D

    http://www.billboard-japan.com/awards2010/artist/

    HAHA and if you scroll down the same column Google Translater changed Justin Beiber to Justin Beaver….LMAO

  84. yeah, but if you’re gonna get pissed off at paps, at least do it in something fashionable, since it’ll be plastered all over the web.

    Hahaha! No kidding. It *is* a funny outfit and I don’t care what he wears on vacation, but if I see pics and it makes me laugh, so be it. He looks about 15 years old, too. It’s kinda cute in a tragic sort of way ;)

    LOL, sorry if I put a bad picture in anyone’s head r/e Gokey and his, erm, stuff.

    Yeah I agree, Adam really didn’t do himself any favors here, but hopefully like all recent Adam gates, it’ll probably be over within a few days…

    I disagree. I think there will be many who will see this as he’s got “balls”. Not a wimp. On some level he will be more acceptable. (not to us bubble people. LOL) but the average person who knows nothing about him except he is gay and sings will think hey good for him. The gay guy got gumption. I already had one straight guy friend say it to me who prior thought Adam was too campy and Too GAY. He was like “hey that guy not such a sissy after all” Now this is one encounter only and my humble opinion which is extrapolated from it. :-)

  86. Looks like the tweet about Adam being nominated for a 2010 Billboard Japan award might be true!!! When you run this page through Google Translate, his name comes up under the nominees for Top Pop Artist 2010:

    http://www.billboard-japan.com/awards2010/artist/

    3rd row, left hand side: ????????? translates to

    Japanese to English translation
    Adam Lambert

  87. Lol, Tierbee :) Re Danny’s “genetic material”

    I’m just surprised so many minds went there…………

    RE Adam; I think it isn’t a big deal at all. Did he lose his temper/could he have handled it better- yes. But he’s only human and he’s certainly not the first to have done so with the press.

    Doesn’t sound like anyone got hurt and I just don’t see it as a big issue.

    Besides, he was wearing the tank top………

  88. Dhunken- I agree- I already saw a comment after one of the articles saying ” Who knew he had it in him?”

  89. Yeah for Adam on the Japan Nomination. But have to LOL at the list. Its not 5 or 6 its like 40 nominees. But he is one of them so Woohoo!!!

    Smeggs big Hello!!!! CindyM & Studio57 & Lee Travers too oh heck hi Everyone. :mrgreen:

  90. Hahaha! No kidding. It *is* a funny outfit and I don’t care what he wears on vacation, but if I see pics and it makes me laugh, so be it. He looks about 15 years old, too. It’s kinda cute in a tragic sort of way

    Funny ha ha BAD that is. I don’t think it’s cute, but tragic, I can agree with.

    Adam, does the shaving of your hair take parts of your brain and/or taste? Oy vey.

    Anyhew, not a big deal, of course. But dude, uff da.

  91. Thanks Dhunken for your positive output, I hope you’re right. I’m just a slightly over concerned Adam fan, love his music, character (well most of the time haha) etc, but I do think he makes a lot of mistakes as far as judgment is concerned, but then again he’s still learning, good thing is he’s a quick study, so things will work out

  92. yeah, but if you’re gonna get pissed off at paps, at least do it in something fashionable, since it’ll be plastered all over the web.

    ROTFLMAO……Best thing said all night and really I am sure what Adam was thinking after he saw the pictures. :lol:

    I was reading comments errr somewhere not to be named…and it sounds like with Japan’s BB awards you don’t win if your not present and that Arashi is going to win it. Also the reason that there are so many nominees is that the only requirement to be nominated it sounds like is to have had a #1 hit in Japan

    So once again awesome he got nominated but no chance in hell of winning hahaha

    It all good you only care. I was very much the same way and I realized I wasn’t being fair. Adam is human and I think because he speaks really well and is a unbelievable singer and performer when he shows signs of being very human and not so perfect it is upsetting. Love and forgiveness to me are two of the most important virtues. I have never walked in Adam’s shoes so I don’t know what his experiences have been. Maybe he was bullied so much as a child that if someone takes it too far it can takes its toll. Not saying the way he handled it was correct but come on the Paps guys was asked to please leave after Adam and his friend gave him many pics and time. Yes two wrongs don’t make a right but I don’t hear those really criticizing Adam saying much about the behavior of the Paps guy. They both handled the situation poorly. But I have more compassion for Adam as he did give of himself to the paps guy before asking him nicely to leave. The guy was greedy.

    Yeah for Adam on the Japan Nomination. But have to LOL at the list. Its not 5 or 6 its like 40 nominees. But he is one of them so Woohoo!!!

    But babe, not that many non-japanese artists! Owl City, Justin Bieber, Adam, Orianthi. Looked up some of the others like NYC, Exile, Girls Next Door all Japanese acts. So being nominated by Billboard for Top Pop Artist is great for Adam!!

  100. I dunno whether I support Adam or not. A part of me agrees that two wrongs don’t make a right, but a part of me also says “Who gives a flying crap, he’s a paparazzi scum, the end justifies the means, Adam could’ve saved his or another celebrity’s life from a stupid pap.” (Yes, it should be plainly obvious that I despise paparazzi with a passion).

    Honestly, I’m not sure how Adam should have dealt with it. I think paparazzi are too obnoxious to just “walk away” from, but, as much as I love a little tussle (I would be screaming GO ADAM, to be honest), I dunno if Adam should’ve gone that far. Though I feel like a hypocrite saying that, because I know if I came that close to a pap, if he went too far I know I would’ve unintentionally gone a bit too far (And no, not killing the pap or injuring him THAT seriously.)

    So I’m just gonna say “GO ADAM, SCREW THE PAPARAZZI” and move on.

    I also kinda like how Adam tweeted that his outfit was kinda disastrous :P.

  101. On that Japan site for the nomination does anyone have a thought on why some of the acts have bigger fonts then the others. Does that indicate Japanese artist or the bigger sellers or more popular….any ideas?

  102. I disagree. I think there will be many who will see this as he’s got “balls”. Not a wimp. On some level he will be more acceptable. (not to us bubble people.

    sorry but this is an old and ‘no more good’ school of tought where people responding with physical agressivity were perceived as being “someone with guts”. If there’s no self-defense involved (because you’re being PHYSICALLY attacked), this reaction is an assault and he could have charges pressed against him (won’t happen because it wasn’t serious enough). Violence is NEVER the right answer in this kind of situation. And geez it was about time that no one deserved to be abused physically because ‘they deserved it’.
    I guess it will be a lesson for Adam and he will think twice about what to do next time

    It doesn’t look like bigger fonts to me just that alot of Bands/artist capitalize their whole names and then some don’t even capitalize the first letter. But the font size looks the same to me. *shrug*

  104. Yeah he is showing that he’s just human, but I kind of feel that when you’re in the public eye there’s thing that you should really try hard to refrain from doing, since people in general seems to flock towards negativity, but oh well, it’s no biggy, was just afraid of that pap pressing charges or something, but after bringing myself to look at those photos (gah that outfit it totally hideous!) and seeing that huge grin on that paps face, looks like they’re wrestling or something, seriously doubting that anything serious such as that will happen, and Adam seems to be getting mostly nothing but favor from this so whatever

  105. I LOVE that he went after that scumbag – makes him even more attractive.

  106. Adam does have an impulsive streak. Despite the fact I’ve been laughing about this, seriously can’t get upset anymore, Adam has just had another lesson on why he needs to keep that impulsive streak on a very short leash. The reality will come when the lawsuit and/or police inquiry starts.

    There will not be a lawsuit or police inquiry about this — and if there was, a pap will get no sympathy in a Miami court. Plus, the tabloids and gossip rags do not want Florida to pass an anti-pap law like California has. No one have any interest in pursuing this.

    Anyway, what exactly are the damages? No one was hurt. The camera wasn’t broken. And the photos were sold.

    But maybe we can get a court order to burn that hat and tank top!!

    Again I humbly disagree this may not be the Politically correct way of thinking but what we intellectually believe the way a situation should be handle is far different then the emotional gut feeling of good for you for sticking up for yourself. I already said he handled it poorly. So I was never condoning violence. (and chasing someone trying to get something is not really violence to me. He could have pushed him on the ground and took the camera but he didn’t but again I am not condoning it at all) what I am saying is the emotional gut reaction of people will be Good for him he has got backbone. Two different issues. So I am sorry not old school of thought at all just old school of how to Politically correctly handle it. Again there will be many who might say he should have not done it that way but good for him for sticking up for himself. I still say many many people will think this way. IMHO

  108. It doesn’t look like bigger fonts to me just that alot of Bands/artist capitalize their whole names and then some don’t even capitalize the first letter. But the font size looks the same to me. *shrug*

    Oh ok see what I get for not wearing my glasses….Oops Thanks Smeggs!!! :mrgreen:

  109. So far the vast majority of people are supporting Adam for sticking up for himself and his friends. Paps just do not have a lot of fans.

    Anyway, this story will fade aware in about 20 hours.

  110. Oh ok see what I get for not wearing my glasses….Oops Thanks Smeggs!!!

    haha YW and your lucky if I wasn’t wear my glasses I couldn’t even see my fingers to type LOL

  111. Anyway, this story will fade aware in about 20 hours.

    haha I don’t know about that remember the world wide reporting of Adam shaving one small part of his head. hahaha will be interesting to see who grabs this and runs with it

    Yeah he is showing that he’s just human, but I kind of feel that when you’re in the public eye there’s thing that you should really try hard to refrain from doing,

    Well I think one incident after the kind of scrutiny he has gotten for over a year and a half is showing great restraint. Look after the incident with him in the parking lot and the way the paps were all over him and saying some nasty things he kept is cool very well. Again I am not in his shoes. (though I would love a few of his :-) ) I am sure he will not do this again and there is still a small part of me that thinks this was some kind of stunt. Because it is so not like his personality at all. ( except there was the scene in WWFM were he goes at the camera….so mmmmmmm ) :lol:

  113. Anyway, this story will fade aware in about 20 hours.

    It will. It’s a rather large mountain being made of a small molehill to start with. ;)

    OH MY GOD, thanks for reminding me of Adam’s head. How long ago did Adam shave that part of his head? I’m STILL reeling.

    The paparazzi story will go away, but his half-shaved head? Good God, that one might not go away for a long time.

  117. You know maybe because of this Adam will have a guess appearance on Jersey Shore and take down Snookie once and for all….. J/K :lol:

    Or maybe he can star in a remake of a Stallone movie and call it “Glambo”!!!!

  118. There will not be a lawsuit or police inquiry about this — and if there was, a pap will get no sympathy in a Miami court.
    Anyway, what exactly are the damages? No one was hurt. The camera wasn’t broken. And the photos were sold.

    Just so you know, there do not need to be physical injuries or damages to property to be convicted of battery. If the paparazzi wants to press charges, there certainly will be a police inquiry, just like there was with Kanye West and Gerard Butler.

  119. OH MY GOD, thanks for reminding me of Adam’s head. How long ago did Adam shave that part of his head? I’m STILL reeling.

    haha well his hair grows like weeds but after it grew back he went and shaved the other side….then alittle later had both sides shaved…but its now grown back again…haha be interesting to see if he shaves it again when in Japan.

  120. Well, I’ve missed having a “gate”! Should we call it a “beachgate?” I haven’t stop laughing. Adam will be fine. He is a media darling here and abroad, RCA/19m loves him. No worries. Maybe he was pumping himself up to get ready to throw that first pitch at the game tomorrow?

  121. Just so you know, there do not need to be physical injuries or damages to property to be convicted of battery. If the paparazzi wants to press charges, there certainly will be a police inquiry, just like there was with Kanye West and Gerard Butler.

    I disagree there won’t be an inquiry. It would have happened already. You are correct about the not needing injuries or damages but the reverse is true as far as Harassment and battery by the paps guy. I believe that Q3 is correct the paps will not want to pursue this especially in Florida. It could lead to Pap laws and then they will be screwed. I also base this somewhat on the Kelly Clarkson incident where she chest bumped her guitar player (more then once) to get him off the stage and then fired him. She physical assaulted him and no charges. The guy was a jerk but if as you are claiming there is never an excuse for violence her action were no better. Oh and by the way another time I was like Good for you!!!! She gained points with me that day. Adam did too today. Just saying. :-) To be Clear…..I LOVE KELLY CLARKSON

  122. Adam is still a young guy and at still an impulsive age, so I can’t be too harsh on him. However, it was still an extremely ill-advised thing to do.

    There will not be a lawsuit or police inquiry about this — and if there was, a pap will get no sympathy in a Miami court. Plus, the tabloids and gossip rags do not want Florida to pass an anti-pap law like California has. No one have any interest in pursuing this.

    The dude is a paparrazzi; he is a douche by definition. He could go to a police station and file charges. Sure, the case might be thrown out later, but you’ve got another set of paparrazzi pics of Adam being questioned by cops or, worse yet, arrested (though highly unlikely).

    Here’s what the FL statute says (note: I’m not a FL attorney):

    784.03Battery; felony battery.
    (1)(a)The offense of battery occurs when a person:
    1.Actually and intentionally touches or strikes another person against the will of the other; or
    2.Intentionally causes bodily harm to another person.
    (b)Except as provided in subsection (2), a person who commits battery commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
    (2)A person who has one prior conviction for battery, aggravated battery, or felony battery and who commits any second or subsequent battery commits a felony of the third degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082, s. 775.083, or s. 775.084. For purposes of this subsection, “conviction” means a determination of guilt that is the result of a plea or a trial, regardless of whether adjudication is withheld or a plea of nolo contendere is entered.

    History.—s. 5, Feb. 10, 1832; RS 2401; s. 1, ch. 5135, 1903; GS 3227; RGS 5060; CGL 7162; s. 2, ch. 70-88; s. 730, ch. 71-136; s. 19, ch. 74-383; s. 9, ch. 75-298; s. 172, ch. 91-224; s. 5, ch. 96-392; s. 4, ch. 2001-50

    I don’t know what the legal defenses are to battery in Florida, but self-defense doesn’t seem a likely one for Adam.

    Anyway, the problem I see here is that by losing his temper, Adam has opened himself up to a lot of legal uncertainty. The photog may just let it go or he could continue to be the douche that he so clearly is.

    Well, I’ve missed having a “gate”! Should we call it a “beachgate?”

    haha or beachhat-gate lol

  124. Adam can take alot and has from the Media and Paps, but when they mess with his friends and family, watch out! He has their back till the end. Don’t mess with the Glamily! Having a friend like that is pretty special. He did’t hurt the pap; the a**hole pap was having the time of his life so it is not that deep.

  125. The guy was a jerk but if as you are claiming there is never an excuse for violence her action were no better

    It wasn’t, and I harshly criticized Kelly for her behavior that night. We just aren’t going to come to an agreement I guess. I don’t believe violence is ever the answer and you believe violence is appropriate at times. I disagree with your assumption though that the paparazzi won’t want to press charges, because there are instances of it happening in the recent past. I’m not saying it is a guarantee, but to rule it out completely is a bit short sighted in my mind.

  126. The general public is sick of paps, and everyone easily understands why people find them annoying. There are already so many instances of celebs getting fed up with the paps that like it or not, letting them have it once in a while has become customary and even cheered over.

    The general public wont care he lost his temper with paps. They will figure the paps had it coming to them, especially when they see the smirk on the photographer’s face, and Adam will earn street respect for taking charge.

    People who already want to dislike Adam will try to use the event to feed their agenda, but most fans wont care at all because they will conclude that the photographer must have really been annoying for Adam to react to him, since he is so patient with people in general.

    The more general public will just respect him for taking charge and for having a sense of humor about the hat.

    The ones who will try to make the moment into something negative are the ones who have already decided to be negative, so he is not losing anything there.

    Summary: This may make for fun gossip, but it won’t be that deep.

  127. I really hate violence, whether it’s in the form of verbal or physical, but in the pics it doesn’t really look like Adam was attacking him, just trying to get the camera, and the guy seemed to have been laughing the whole time

  128. I really hate violence, whether it’s in the form of verbal or physical, but in the pics it doesn’t really look like Adam was attacking him, just trying to get the camera, and the guy seemed to have been laughing the whole time

    But it wasn’t his right to try and take that camera, and it is never his right to put his hands on someone like that. I agree with everyone, a lot of the actions of the paparazzi are gross, and I understand that they were probably severely harassing him, but a lot of celebrities deal with that without lashing out like he did, and and the fact that paparazzi aren’t the most savory people in the world doesn’t give someone the legal right to accost them.

  129. *

    I am sorry it seems I am not making myself clear. I NEVER SAID Violence is appropriate. I even said it more then once if you read my post. I said he handled it poorly. I only said that Emotionally people will be feeling good for him. So I take responsibility for you putting those words in my mouth. Please reread. As far as the way he handled it I agree it was Poor. I only am saying that a lot of people will think good for him. What is legally correct and what is emotionally felt are two separate issues. That is all I have been saying the whole time. I personally don’t feel it was very serious but still handled inappropriately. I also think that on some level he was in a catch 22. If he walked away and did nothing they might say Adam Lambert runs from paps while whining please leave me alone.

    As far as the Paps wanting to press charges or not that we will have to respectively disagree. I personally hope I am correct but I don’t think it is out of the question either that charges could be filed just highly unlikely. Just so we are clear. I respect your belief of this especially since you are a teacher. (I think that is what you said) So if no violence is what you wish to pass on to your students I think you’re being a good teacher and would want my kids in your class. :-)

  130. Adam shouldn’t have to get into a “slap and tickle” with a pap to earn his “street cred” to become a card carrying “macho” gay. A poster is making it sound like most homosexual men can’t handle themselves in a fight. I would call that a slight case of homophobia, or perhaps simple a naivity, a lack of real world experience with gay men, or perhaps she harbors desire for Adam and it scews her sense of what a gay or staight man is, and is using this bit of lame violence to try make Adam into less of a gay man than he is. I could count at least a dozen young gay men at any time in our school’s fitness center power lifting and at least looking like they could kick some serious ass. There are straight men who run from fights and straight one’s who don’t; there are plenty of “bearish” gay men who lift weights and ride their Harley’s who might put you out for the count for scratching their bikes. This altercation doesn’t make Adam more manly or even seem more manly, nor does it make him less manly by the way. He is manly already in his own ways. He’s a man. Sure, he’s a gay man, but in a world without homophobia (someday that will happen; hope I get to see it), no one would even think that he might have proven he has some balls now. Not quite sure he needs to prove anything in the world we live in now. Or am I too urban?

  131. As far as the Paps wanting to press charges or not that we respectively disagree with. I personally hope I am correct but I don’t think it is out of the question either. Just so we are clear. I respect your belief of this especially since you are a teacher. (I think that is what you said) So if no violence is what you wish to pass on to your students I think you being a good teacher and would want my kids in your class.

    Not a teacher but close, and I do understand now more what your feeling. Basically you are saying you don’t condone the act, but looking at it as a fan you don’t see much potential damage, which I agree with, and I understand where you are coming from in viewing the situation.

  132. I’m not commenting on the pictures or what happened since I haven’t read much of this event yet, but I had to comment on this:

    Adam is still a young guy and at still an impulsive age, so I can’t be too harsh on him. However, it was still an extremely ill-advised thing to do.

    Adam is nearly 29 years old, at what point would he finally be responsible for his actions? If he were 23 I could see the point, but he’s close to 30 years old.

    He’s a man and he’s fully responsible for his actions.

  133. Please know that I don’t think Adam has to earn street respect because he is gay. He just will earn it regardless of whether he is straight or gay with many people because he stood up for himself. Paps can be bullies, and they were bullying Adam. He did not throw punches. He just tried to wrestle away a camera. No one was hurt or sustained any injuries. I’m not saying that it was necessarily the best way to handle the situation, but it is a way that many people will respect and will understand, and that has nothing to do with his sexuality.

  134. Woah.

    Um, I just popped in to say I thought that Archie video posted was super cute and his laugh is hilarious.

    But this thread is pretty entertaining too!
    (I went and saw Adam in concert about a month ago. He puts on a great show! I need to buy the album.)

  135. Adam is nearly 29 years old, at what point would he finally be responsible for his actions? If he were 23 I could see the point, but he’s close to 30 years old.

    He’s a man and he’s fully responsible for his actions.

    um 34 3/4 I believe that is the cut for Antiquarians born in 1982. :lol: (J/K couldn’t resist.)

  136. Lynn, you said:

    I’m not saying that it was necessarily the best way to handle the situation, but it is a way that many people will respect and will understand, and that has nothing to do with his sexuality

    So, you can’t have it both ways. Not really. You can say that people will respect him regardless of his sexual orientation because he turned and attempted to attack a harrassing bully, or you can say that people will say “they didn’t think he had the balls because he’s so gay” to attack the mean ol bully. I guess there could be some believing one way and some the other, but you do indicate yourself that those two statements cannot be true at the same time when you say

    Please know that I don’t think Adam has to earn street respect because he is gay. He just will earn it regardless with many people because he stood up for himself.

    It amuses me that biggers stars have reacted much less than Glambert. Another thing that amuses me? That people try to defend his actions. Evs.

    Glad to be of amusement to you… I always like putting smiles on peoples faces. :-) and what celebs you talking about Celebs like Sean Penn, Justine Timberlake and Cameron Diaz, or Avil Lavine, Woody Harrison, Hugh Grant, or maybe Britney Spears or Kayne West. Yeah they handled the paps much better then Adam…oh wait no thats right they actually injured the paps or the equipment. Oh and so you know that I am not pulling crap out of the air

  139. Good night all and thanks to everyone for their thoughts and opinions on the Adam “beach gate” Those I agreed and disagreed with. (I actually think I didn’t really totally disagree with anyone and didn’t really fully agree either but have to say I did get clear and thought provoking counter ideas that helped me give my ideas and thoughts on the matter, more depth and better insight. For that I thank you all :-) ) Pleasant dreams to one and all!

    haha I thought you typed Pheasant Dreams LOL

    ROTFLMAO….I didn’t but wish I did now! :mrgreen: Goodnight my friend

  141. Lord, that boy (that would be Adam) makes me laugh. Punch ’em out, Adam! Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. You go, Boy.

  142. Triskel4

    Yes, I did think in my head, “He just will earn it regardless of whether he is straight or gay with many people because he stood up for himself.”

    Sometimes I think my writing is clear because the rest of the phrase is in my own head, so thank you for helping me realize that it was unclear. I hope this helps clarify my comment.

  143. Oh Adam, bad judgment, bad hair, AND bad clothes. Not of goodness.

    Well at least it was against people who define scum –the paps.

    So still not right, good and nothing on earth can make that hair or clothes not suck, but well there is that.

  144. Regarding the paparazzi guy laughing … those smiling pictures could be a bit deceiving. He could have been continueing to tease and taunt Adam even during the “attack”. Example: “ohhhh, coming after me are ya big guy?” and/or worse slurs…..you know, just in general making fun of Adam to make Adam even more upset.

    I’m not saying Adam was correct in doing what he did, as a matter of fact, imo, he should have kept his cool, but I can’t even begin to express how much I HATE BULLIES! It’s too bad there aren’t stricter laws on harrassing (famous) people during their downtime.

    Regarding Archie’s vid……what a sweetie :)

  145. LOL at the comments. All I could think ws that it looked like Tommy Joe (bass guitar) got a moon shot out of the deal.

    IDK why the Pap didn;t run, I mean the dude has a brother, he knows how to fight. ;)

  146. Well at least he apologized for the hat.

    Hahha the photos are hilarious !! Lol please everyone forgive me for that hat. – I was attempting a disguise- clearly failed. Hahah

  147. For the record, had he punched him, I would not be defending him.

    If he was shouting homophobic shit then I’d have punched him.

    Honestly, we have no idea what he said to provoke Adam..

    Sorry but the paps run people off the road with their infants and little children in the car and pregnant celebs just to get a reaction for a picture.

    Some do. I do not believe that was the case in this instance.

    Since Adam is not pregnant, I think you can say it was definitely not the case in this instance. :-)

    If Adam didn’t “attack” the guys when he was cornered in a stairwell, I’m thinking the guy made some pretty bad comments. I have a feeling Adam lets a lot of sticks and stones lay on the ground. It must have been something for him to pick one up, in a metaphorical sense.

  148. If someone were taking photos of me and I was wearing that outfit, I would probably go after the camera too. I think the whole think is funny

  149. Adam should have just ignored the guy or packed up and left. Sorry but when you are in the news or a so called “celebrity” you are prey. I suspect Adam was more upset because they were taking pictures of him looking like that LOL. Too funny.

  150. LOL at the “moon shot” of his friend. Was he intending to wear (or not as in this case) his pants like that?

  151. I’m so proud of Adam! I can’t even imagine what it would feel like to be watched and photographed like that, day in and day out. But the bad (and ultimately GOOD) news is: Adam better get used to it. His star is rising here and abroad, so he will continue to be watched. Hopefully he will soon be able to afford time with his friends on a private beach :). Adam’s not only a Hot Rock God but a Bad Ass as well. I lurve him!

  152. Adam should have just ignored the guy or packed up and left. Sorry but when you are in the news or a so called “celebrity” you are prey.

    Here’s the thing, though, IMO: No matter how famous you are, you shouldn’t have to be prey, and I don’t think Adam or any other celebrity should have to spend their lives in seclusion to avoid being stalked. I just can’t get into the idea that because celebrities know that pap stalking comes with the territory they should just put up with it or walk away. The thing is, when you join a company, for example, you run the risk of having pesky co-workers or mean bosses, but you also typically get to end each day after an 8-to-12-hour shift. If those co-workers or bosses continued to follow you around during your personal, off-work time, it would be considered stalking. I don’t think anyone would say, “Well, meeting those kinds of people on the job just comes with the territory, so if they’re following you around during your personal time, you should just walk away or ignore them.” I just really can’t blame Adam or any other celeb who loses it because, by the same token, the pap should know that it just comes with the territory to be chased away or, if requests to leave are ignored, physically removed.

  153. Adam should have just ignored the guy or packed up and left. Sorry but when you are in the news or a so called “celebrity” you are prey. I suspect Adam was more upset because they were taking pictures of him looking like that LOL. Too funny.

    Ignoring is easier said than done especially if crass and derogatory comments are being thrown at you or your friends. And why should Adam have had to leave? He was there minding his own business enjoying himself.

    You know I think we all have to give some thought to our place in all this. There is a demand for these type of pictures. If there was no demand, there would be no paparazzi.

    …and I don’t think Adam was upset over his outfit. He has worn those clothes many times in the past and photographed in them.

  154. I actually think the photos look staged. Were there TWO photographers? If the camera is in the photos who took the pictures?

  155. Teri and clearone: THIS!!!!!
    there is a big difference between “celebrities” like Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan, who live for having their photo by paparazzi

    and people, who want some privacy on their own time….. especially taking into account that he let them take the photos for an hour!!!!!
    and this thing “it comes with the territory” only works to some extent – there has to be a line drawn somewhere…..

  156. I will never have any empathy for paps.
    They deserve anything they get, even getting “run over” by Lyndsay Lohan or punched by Sean Penn. They harass and hound people like hyenas.
    RIP princess Diana- how quickly people forget.
    Teri63- WORD.

  157. DLee: there were more than one paps…. they usually travel in packs…..

  158. mr, a lot of people harassed by paps say that the worst thing is that they hurl insults at you…. and if we are talking about violence and harrassment, violence does not have to be physical, what is more sometimes physical blow does not hurt as much as derogatory and insulting words…..
    If somebody insulted me or my friends or family, I would be the first to react very strongly, let me tell ya :mrgreen:

  159. The reality is that people who are considered celebrities are hounded by these scum paparazzi all the time. And the more famous, the greater the number. These scum act the way they do, because it pays, and it pays because people want to see these pictures – especially the tussles.

    As consumers, the best solution is to not go to the links or buy the rags that pay these folks. And if you feel strongly about it, call your congressperson to get stronger legislation against these scum.

    For the celebrities right now, its an uncomfortable fact of life for them. There is no such thing as privacy unless you find a remote place and perfect the art of subterfuge. Asking kindly for the press to leave is completely ineffectual, as is chasing photographers or trying to grab their cameras. All that accomplishes is a possible lawsuit, more publicity which if it continues will give you a bad rep, and likely an increase in paps and the money they get for provoked shots. Yes, celebrities need to find a way to live with these paps and not let them get under your skin. It’s not fair, nor easy, but it is a necessity. Ask any of the countless celebrities who have learned from experience.

  160. Paps can be bullies, and they were bullying Adam.

    Well since we were not there to witness this, how do we “know” they were “bullying” him? Because he said so?

    I’m not condoning the paps as their past history indicates that this happens all the time, but unless you are there, no one knows exactly what happened. Adam is almost 30 years old and he had better get a handle on his impulsive behavior. Paps are an evil in the industry, but antagonize them and they will only get worse.

    Here’s the thing, though, IMO: No matter how famous you are, you shouldn’t have to be prey

    That’s a two way street. If you are in the business you want hype so you automatically become “prey”. If you don’t like it, you are in the wrong business. Would any of you want them to ignore him? I think not.

  161. Adam should have just ignored the guy or packed up and left. Sorry but when you are in the news or a so called “celebrity” you are prey. I suspect Adam was more upset because they were taking pictures of him looking like that LOL. Too funny.

    I know some people(don’t know if this includes you or not) think that celebs choose this by choosing to go into a profession of fame, and in a small way they do. I don’t think, however, that this should mean that they should never again be able to choose to go to the beach and hang out with friends without having their day constantly and continually interrupted and spoiled by paps, or that they should have to leave any place they are on their time off simply because someone (or many someones) decide to be abusively intrusive. Everyone has a right to time off, to privacy, and that includes celebrities, politicians, any figure in the public eye. If he packed up and left every time he got harassed, he might as well just never go out in public except when he’s working, and what kind of life is that?

    That’s a two way street. If you are in the business you want hype so you automatically become “prey”. If you don’t like it, you are in the wrong business. Would any of you want them to ignore him? I think not.

    Sorry, but that’s a completely simplistic, black and white view of things. They don’t sell their souls and sign a contract to turn their lives over to us, the public. There’s a time and a place for publicity, and this wasn’t one of them. A couple of pictures and move on, maybe, but not what he was subjected to – and yes, we have reports that he put up with it for at least an hour before asking them to move on, at which point the guy said he wasn’t leaving until Adam did.

  162. Well since we were not there to witness this, how do we “know” they were “bullying” him?

    In my world, if you ask a person you don’t even know to stop staring at you and pointing a camera at you, and they refuse, they’re bullying. They’re saying, in essence, they can infringe on your personal space as they please, and there’s nothing you can do about it, short of taking physical action. And then, when you finally lose it and become physical, they photograph that, too, and spread it all over the internet and print media. Is that not bullying?

  163. I actually think the photos look staged. Were there TWO photographers? If the camera is in the photos who took the pictures?

    Two – are you kidding? There were probably a handful. The paps run in packs, and are relentless.

    Teri63 – that sure fits my definition of bullying.

    Paps can be bullies, and they were bullying Adam.
    Well since we were not there to witness this, how do we “know” they were “bullying” him? Because he said so?

    Yes, Adam did say that he was provoked by bullshit the guy spewed out. Adam has been described by almost every interviewer as courteous, polite, engaging and patient. He’s got a track record of that and we’ve seen it in numerous videos of encounters with the paparazzi. So, yeah I’m willing to believe him on this one, I’ve no reason not to. Do I think it was the smartest thing to do? Nah, but do I understand it, yep.

    Btw, when did 30 become the magical age by when you’ve lost all impulsivity, recklessness and the ability to make a mistake??

  165. If you are in the business you want hype so you automatically become “prey”. If you don’t like it, you are in the wrong business. Would any of you want them to ignore him? I think not.

    Again, I just can’t agree with this. Yes, celebrities want publicity, but that shouldn’t mean they can’t have off-work hours. It’s the 24/7 thing that, to me, is so, so wrong. There are also different kinds of publicity. Being photographed while on a red carpet or even entering/leaving a venue is all part of Adam’s work-day, IMO. Going to the beach on a day off is not part of his celebrity job, and, therefore, should be off-limits to uninvited photographers. I mean, Adam allowed the guy AN HOUR of his personal time, and when he asked the guy to leave, he should have obliged and felt really lucky that Adam had given him the time he had because, in my opinion, Adam was off the clock and owed him nothing.

  166. Btw, when did 30 become the magical age by when you’ve lost all impulsivity, recklessness and the ability to make a mistake??

    Nope, idols shouldn’t make mistakes, and unlike other artists, they are role models. Never mind star quality, they must be nice and well-behaved. They are after all, the moral guardians of our society.

  167. Of course, in an ideal world, we should all have the right to privacy and relentless in-your-face paparazzi would be prosecuted. The laws are slowly being changed in some places, but for the most part, this ideal world does not exist for celebrities. It is an unfortunate fact of life right now for celebrities that privacy simply does not exist. What do you think would happen if Jennifer Aniston lashed out at every violation of her privacy? Its just not a viable option. If you’re hot, you’re going to be followed, at completely inappropriate times and places. If a celebrity can’t stand that kind of fishbowl existence, they’re going to have a very rough time of it. From what I’ve heard, the art of avoiding and tolerating these scumbags becomes a finely developed skill – from disguises and remote vacation spots to anger management techniques and a cultivation of tolerance.

    The paparazzi are welcome when they take shots of the celebrities in full glamor mode or out on the town. But they don’t work for the celebrity or their management. They’re not out to further a celebrities career. They’re out to further their own. Opening the doors to paparazzi for greater exposure brings in the slime as well. You can’t have one without the other – so you adapt and learn.

  168. Adam was doing it in self defense!

    also Prince Poppycock was on Jay Leno yesterday nite with his outfit from the Star Spangled Banner! ha!

  169. So Adam is human after all. Let’s be honest we’ve all had moments where we’ve lost our cool. So maybe we only yelled or something. I’m not saying Adam was right for physically going after the guy but he wasn’t throwing punches, just looked like he was trying to get the camera. I bet the whole thing was over in a minute or less. Adam knows his chosen career involves this stuff and he’s done well managing it so far. We don’t know what the guy was saying to Adam and yes perfect human behavior would be to ignore the guy but people aren’t perfect.

  170. movin2thabeet: you are absolutely right, there should be something done about it….
    it’s like the paps have all the rights and their prey – none

  171. springboard: THIS, hahahahahhahahahah
    on the other hand, Adam is still 1 year shy from 30, so he has the perfect right to make mistakes, ;)

  172. I’m with teri63…. Adam has been soooo tolerant of paparrazi for a long time. After an hour of pestering almost anyone would lose their cool and I’m not offended by it. People are constantly screaming that stars are reclusive – duh why would that be??? Give ’em some space please.

  173. I don’t know who makes those little cartoons, but they are hilarious. The little Adam stick figures hair is always up to date with the latest haircut. I love ginger tummy glare!

  174. Being an Adam fan is never dull. He lives his whole life for our entertainment. Who can blame him for wanting a little down time with his friends? He’s bound to snap every once in a while. He is human, after all (when he’s offstage- onstage he’s supernatural!).

  175. No one should be upset with Lambert’s scuffle with the paps. Publicity stunts like this happen all the time. The photographer is even laughing in the supposed “fight.” It got what he and his management wanted, except for the unfortunate outfit he’s wearing. Maybe that’s what the photographer is laughing at.

  176. In a perfect world, paps should be regulated. If it’s a legit line of work, there should be some standards and regulations. they shouldn’t be given a free run. And a perfect celebrity should always act polite and cool under any circumstances. But there is no such thing as perfect world and perfect human being.

  177. AllenTX, and thank G. for that :)
    can you imagine everybody being perfect? what a bore!!!!!

  178. The unfortunate outfit is proof to me that it was not staged. If he had planned this incident, he would have wearing something less dorky. And the pap was laughing because an hour of baiting finally got him what he wanted.

  179. artemis, I think you are right, dear Sherlock ;) Adam would not be caught dead in outfit like that for the photo-op :)

  180. People who already want to dislike Adam will try to use the event to feed their agenda [….]

    Yep. At least it definitely seems to work that way for some other idols….

  181. oh, I would love to see live action vid of this :D
    bb is so fierce, hehehe

  182. Man I can’t believe I actually registered but I felt I had to in order to get something off my chest. I am incredibly disturbed by most of the posts here regarding the Adam Lambert and the paparazzi. I am simply flabbergasted that there have been comments of he deserved it so it’s okay considering who Adam Lambert is, a gay individual. Many homosexual people have been abused and persecuted because people thought they deserved it not only gay people but black people Jewish people, individuals of different religions and ethnicities because different individuals disagreed w/ their behaviors so they deserved whatever they got. That type of belief shouldn’t be encouraged shouldn’t be championed.
    Violence is not allowed you don’t put your hands on other people period.

    What that paparazzi did was perfectly legal filming a celebrity in a public place what Adam did was not legal wrestling w/ a papparazi trying to take his camera plain and simple don’t try to sugar coat this or brush it off by saying oh he didn’t hurt him or oh I think the pap is smiling. Adam shouldn’t of touched him.

    I like Adam Lambert he seems sweet and well spoken. I actually felt bad for him b/c yeah he snapped but it wasn’t violently more aggressively he wasn’t trying to hurt the pap just get the camera. In one of the pics it looks like he realized what he had done was wrong. The pic where he’s in the louche chair w/ the hat on his face I just got this overwhelming feeling he was going over his actions and thinking oh no what have I done. Hmm but what if that is a pic before this whole incident if it is my whole theory that he experienced remorse and contrition is blown out of the water. Well regardless this appeared so out of character for a guy who usually seemed so calm cool and collected. I’ve seen him interact w/ papparazzi before he always seemed to know how to behave and what to say. I think this was anomaly probably spurred on by being in the limelight so much do to his tour and the stress of all that once disturbed in his relaxing moment he just snapped therefore it wont happen again. I think he learned his lesson and will work on dealing better w/ his anger.

    Oh and those who say the pap is smiling I don’t know could go either way smile or a grimace. Adam sure put himself in a situation and on twitter is trying to defuse it by making light of it. Him and his people probably had a huge talk on how to deal w/ the fall out. I myself would at least like to see him acknowledge he shouldn’t have put his hands on the guy.

    Anyway no hands on others no good can come of it 1) Adam could of hurt the guy 2) broke his equipment 3) could get sued regardless if its for a small amount charges are charges 4) could lose fans from this 5)bad press.

    I hope Adam never does this again and I hope everything turns out okay for him.

  183. I checked a few of the online larger sites (eonline, People). Absolutely nothing regarding Adam and the pap. Unless they are having a slow news day or will post later, this seems like non-news and who cares type of thing.

  184. When paparazzi treat celebrities with respect, then they deserve respect back. When they do not, they earn no respect or consideration. That doesn’t mean anyone in this country, no matter what a douchebag they might be, deserves violence, but this was not violence – it was an attempt to get someone to back the hell off after being asked politely to do so, and being refused. It may technically meet the definition of battery in FL, but it sure doesn’t meet the sniff test.

  185. Listening-
    I respect what you’re saying, but I have to tell you that I don’t personally believe being a pap is legit at all- I think it’s the abuse of freedom of expression, and I think it will have to be regulated sooner or later.

    I for one would actually really like to live in a world that doesn’t have millions of pictures of celebs in the beach, shopping, getting in and out of cars, with their kids, with their new relationships, etc.

    I have NEVER understood the phenomenon, and probably never will.

    That being said- ofcourse Adam shouldn’t put himself in jeopordy of being sued or having charges pressed against him.
    But morally? That guy had it coming.

  186. I, for one, am sick of people talking about how Adam, or anyone else, has ‘no right’ to go after these stalkers. If it’s true that the pap filed a battery charge, Adam’s management could easily file a counter charge of harrassment. Public place or no, unwanted interruption and verbal abuse (and we know that these people banter incessantly) is harrassment.

    True, Adam is a celeb and it comes with the territory – he has been extremely tolerant of the intrusions. If you’re a pap you should know what can happen when you break the law and put yourself in harm’s way….. Any charge of battery is laughable and a disgusting waste of tax dollars. Wouldn’t surprise me if TMZ hired the pap to try to extort a little $$…..

  187. Apparently the police see it for the bogus attention grabbing it is, and are declining to press charges, according to the Miami Herald. Good on them for having common sense. http://bit.ly/anrUFk
