No wonder Adam Lambert was sticking up for X Factor contestant Stacy Francis during her twitter war with blogger and asshat, Perez Hilton! Adam and Stacy worked together, as you can see from this poster advertising a 2008 Upright Cabaret show where they shared the bill.

I agree with Perez that Stacy, at 42, is going to have a hard time launching a pop career, but geez, did he have to mention her in his tweets? He was basically trolling her.
Vote for The Worst has detailed Stacy’s vast experience in showbiz, in this recent blog post.
