A self-described “radio guy” out of Iowa, named Jeremy is claiming to have inside sources at Sony who tell him that Adam Lambert will be mentoring the Top 8 contestants next week on Idol.

He revealed the news yesterday afternoon through twitter, where he goes by @Iowaradioguy.

Twitter kinda exploded after he tweeted “Another reason Idol has jumped the shark: Next week’s mentor – Adam Lambert. HE IS NOT A LEGITIMATE ARTIST! Idol, you MEGA Fail.”

Naturally, he received a lot of angry tweets in return, and a demand for proof. He claimed to have deleted the email received, but then magically dug it up this morning, tweeting out a photocopy.

Check it out after the jump.

I don’t know what to think, really. I’m not sure why a guy who seems to have a good reputation, would lie and lie and lie, but then hey, it’s the internet. I’ve learned never to trust what I read without at least a couple of sources.

It’s all very entertaining, at the very least. We’ll find out soon enough, if it’s true…
