Adam Lambert - Mentor on American Idol
and from Queersighted UK:
Why Booking Adam Lambert As An 'American Idol' Mentor Is A Great Idea
We just heard the news and while, at first, it might seem like he's just a last minute substitute because maybe that overbooked Lady Gaga person backed out, Adam Lambert as next week's American Idol mentor strikes us as exactly what the contestants need.
Think about it. How utterly confusional has this season been already?
The judges can't agree on who these kids are, what they should sing, how they should sing it, and whether or not they all should have guitars surgically attached to their forearms. "Make it your own" has been replaced by "make it sound like you did when you sang 'Straight Up.'"
Lambert will help the kids cut through this bullshit. No one could shape that guy. He wore a glittery insectoid exoskeleton while pissing off Gene Simmons on live national television, for gosh sakes. Every week they threw him a curve ball that he caught, tossed back into the air and smacked out of the park. Sometimes he aimed for a galaxy no one understood but he never backed down from projects like turning "Ring of Fire" into the soundtrack for an orgy in Middle Eastern gay brothel.
He didn't even seem to care if he won or not, he just focused on that spot on the horizon and got brand-focused. Where was he when Didi Benami needed him most?
P.S. Dear Adam Lambert, please wear those crazy tight pants. It's your duty to this once-great nation.
P.P.S. Dear all you commenters who hate us for our recent poll about those crazy tight pants, this is not an attempt to kiss your ass. We regret nothing.
