Even if you hate Michael Moore, everyone should watch this.

Witnessing the behavior and ickyness of Phelps and his merry band of losers made me a little ill, but mostly this video made me laugh and celebrate the awesomeness that people are capable of in the face of adversity. (It makes me sick that WBC are going to be protesting at the AI concert, though. I'M SENDING LOTS OF LOVE AND POSITIVE ENERGY YOUR WAY ADAM BB!!!!!)

So, like, how bad is it on a scale from 1 to 10 that I kind of sort of really wanttoslashHunterandCasey? Like, it's kind of awful because this show already has a super awesome cannon gay couple and I am dissatisfied and feel the need to slash other people. WHY CAN I NEVER BE HAPPY WITH WHAT I HAVE?

So, apparently there has been a media frenzy since the finale about Adam's sexuality. People want him to "come out" and come out now. Now, I didn't feel one way or another about it beyond the fact that I believe that it's nobody's business. He can play coy for the rest of his life or fuck Kris some random guy over a table at a restaurant. But, now I find out that the whole matter has apparently been giving Perez Hilton heart palpitations and just generally making him very angry.


For serious? Anything that could potentially cause Perez Hilton to suddenly expire is totally fine with me. I hate him with the burning intensity of a thousand suns and the potent venom of a hundred thousand cobras. He fucked with someone in another of my fandoms and I loathe him.

So please baby. For the sake of Perez-haters everywhere. CONTINUE TO PLAY COY!

PS. there was something in this same article about Adam selling his outing to Rolling Stones...? Please confirm/deny? And if he is, in fact, doing so THAT IS SO TOTALLY AWESOME!!! BB's a business man, yes he is. That is so Adam, taking something like the complete media clusterfuck about his sexuality and capitalizing on it. Not to mention American, yeah? (*middle-finger* to everyone who says he wasn't "American" enough to win Idol. It doesn't get more American than profiting off of the stupidity of others.)

First of all


Second of all


Adam will go far. I truly believe this in my heart of hearts. He is amazingly talented and in a few months, I will be first in line to buy his CD and/or concert tickets. I will knock a bitch out of the way.

(Also, just something loltastic: I thought Ryan was going to go into an apopleptic fit when Tatiana started her shenanigans.)

Okay, so everyone knows I love Adam Lambert (see journal header), boundlessly and endlessly. I adore him from the tips of his blue tinged hightlights to the soles of his snakeskin cowboy boots and everything in between. I adore him, really.

However, American Idol's treatment of him is really starting to piss me off. Nothing this idiot show could do would ever translate onto Adam for me, but I'm afraid it might for other fans.

ADAM IS NOT AN EGO MANIAC! THIS IS ALL THE SHOW MAKING HIM OUT TO BE SO!!! He's always so nice and sweet when he talks and I honestly believe he has a beautiful soul to go along with this beautiful voice.

In all of the producers' and judges' (Simon, I'm looking at YOU) desperate pimpage, I don't think they realize that they're hurting his potential fanbase. It's not fair, and the competition should be based solely on singing ability, but that's not how it works. It's like they're actually subtly sabotaging him.

I just thank god that their sneaky tactics with Kris haven't worked. It gives me hope that it won't work with Adam either.

I was completely certain that it would be a Danny/Adam finale. For once, I don't mind being wrong at all!!!!!


EDIT: Okay, so I'm going to admit something here, and I'm not sure how to say it but I actually kind of like both Adam and Kris equally at this point. I'm a shitty judge of singing ability, but up to last night I would have said that Adam was the best singer in the whole competition. And he is, technically...but there's just this indefinable something about Kris that makes his performances riveting for me. Heartless had my heart in my throat and it's the only time I've ever loved someone elses performance more than Adam's. I have never, not once, been tempted to split votes all seasons, but...I honestly can't decide who I want to win more now. I love them both so much. So I'm going to do it. I'm going to split my votes and fuck everyone who would give me flack for it. At this point I just can't choose and no one can force me to do so. I love them both equally so I'm going to vote for each of them once and only once and let the chips fall where they may. I honestly believe I'll be happy either way.

See, the reason I usually don't try to get involved with "real person" fandoms is that the other people in them are (for the most part, you understand) scary fucking insane.

Take Adam Lambert's for example. Though I love the boy with the burning of a thousand suns I cannot stand most of his other fans, especially the fans on the comms and forums and such. I appreciate that the fandom exists and all but the people who are a part of these comms and forums are (again, for the most part) vicious cunts who apparently just can't tolerate anyone having an opinion other than theirs. I've been attacked at least thrice in these place for having a different good opinion, and god-forbid I ever express anything other than total devotion. (I fucking hated "Play that Funky Music." There, I said it.)

So what the fuck ever. I'm not going to let the insanity of Adam's fandom ruin him for me, so I'm not going to participate anymore. They can have their silly internet places where no one ever disagrees and everyone thinks exactly the same. Fuck them. I don't need them to keep track of Adam. I'll stick with my fandoms based on fictional characters where the people haven't been taken by the bad-brand of madness (for the most part).

So, next week's American Idol theme is going to be songs from the artists' respective birth years and I am so psyched because 1982 was an awesome year for music. Looking at the releases for the year, several are already jumping out at me that I would love for Adam to sing.

--Give it Up by KC and the Sunshine Band

--Do You Really Want to Hurt Me? by Culture Club.

--Hungry Like the Wolf by Duran Duran.

--Hurts So Good by John Mellancamp

--Should I Stay or Should I Go? by The Clash

--Little Too Late by Pat Benatar

--Bad to the Bone by George Thorogood

--Hard to Say I'm Sorry by Chicago

--Heartbreaker by Dionne Warwick

--I'm So Excited by The Pointer Sisters

I swear to God, if he sings "I Want Candy" I will pull my hair out and scream. *hopes she hasn't jinxed herself and knocks on all the wood in reach*

Whatever, it's belated, I know.

Okay, so, like I have never ever been interested in RPF because, usually, I don't find actual people very fascinating. I could make an exception for Adam I think. Too bad there aren't really any others I'd be tempted to slash him with this season of Idol.

So here's the deal. I said here that I didn't really like his "country" (*snort*) performance on the 17th or whatever. The thing is, I listened to it again this weekend--the studio version--and...whoa. How did that even happen (*that I didn't like it)? No, you know what? I know exactly how it happened. I confused "being overwhelmed by" with "disliking." That had to be it. It wasn't even that I disliked it, really. I thought what he did with the song was kind of cool. My knee-jerk personal reaction to RoF had absolutely nothing to do with the supposed "desecration" of Johnny Cash (which I call bullshit on--tell you why in a minute) and everything to do with feeling a little like I'd just had a close encounter with a panther, and while I may not have had any visible signs of mauling, neither had I escaped completely unscathed. It was exhilarating, breathtaking, and I was completely terrified of the way it made me feel. Like I said, I got my hands on the studio version, and liked the song immediately. And later, I went back and watched the performance, and since I was prepared for it, I liked that too. (Whew, so much hotness. He is pure sex on that stage.)

I'm going to sort of take back what I said about Adam's version being a "big, cunty fuck you to the country music industry." I do think it was partly that, but I also think it was maybe even a tribute to the Man in Black at the same time. Johnny Cash was all about crossbreeding genres and coming up with with completely fucked-but-also-wonderful songs, or versions of songs. Many, many people have said something like this, and once they did, it sort of rang true with me. I'm hard pressed to pick a favorite Adam-performance, but Ring of Fire is definitely way up there. 

Now, I'd like to discuss, for a moment, "Tracks of My Tears" from last week. First, his clothes. Some people have said that they think he sold out by "toning it down" with which I disagree completely. He wore a shiny grey suit with a pompadour--that is not anywhere near "toned down" it's just a different kind of "really, really Adam". I even had sort of an argument with someone I have nothing to do with anymore about the pompadour--I loved it, she hated it. Okay, so, why did I love it? 1.) He pulled it off, more than anyone I've ever met and still retained his sexy and 2.) Because he's such a performer, and he has a very shrewd eye for style, and this was a very different kind of song than he's been singing, he had to do something different. His style for this performance was period. That was "The Look" in the '50s and '60s. And this endears it to me ever so much. Not only did Adam respect the song and Smokey by singing it so well, but he honored it by looking the fucking part, man.

Okay, so the actual song. God, it took my breath away, and it still does. (I downloaded the video as well as the studio version off of Itunes: best $2.48 I've ever spent) I was mesmerized the entire time by that ridiculously amazing voice. I got chills at least four times during those really, really high notes. At the end of the song I teared up. That kid has to have been touched by the divine, because I hear an angel every time he opens his obscenely talented mouth. (It's not trite if it's true so ;P) And at the end of the performance, you will notice, after he shakes the hands of the band-members, he looks over at Smokey before he even gives the judges one iota of attention, and mouths "Thank You." I melted so freaking hard and then a couple tears actually escaped, but they were happy tears of righteous love for this sweet, sweet boy. And then there was Kara making too much of herself, as always, and failing to count; then Paula being mostly comprehensible, as if Adam's fantasticness somehow broke through the painkillers; and then Simon stumbling all over himself to praise the kid with that oh-so-silly index finger to thumb thing; and Randy good-naturedly sticking his foot in his mouth and not saying "dawg" once; and Adam being SO FREAKING CUTE and aw-shucksey through it all; and then Ryan Seacrest being all "Well, I guess you win." (Which, by the way, I took sort of badly at first, thinking Ryan was being sort of douchey to him, but someone has made me see the light, and I now realize that Ryan Seacrest is just too adorkably stupid to ever do anything like that on purpose. So he is forgiven.)

Wow, that was long and took forever to write, but I feel good about it. Like I've finally accomplished something. The End. (Until April 1st, that is.)
