All the media coverage and “blacklisting” of Adam Lambert is really starting to annoy me. Don’t get me a wrong, I’m not a fan. As far as i’m concerned, American Idol is ruining music and Lambert’s music makes my ears bleed.
What really chaps my ass is that Lambert is being “blacklisted” for his sexual escapades on TV (has it been so long that we forgot about the infamous britney/madonna/xtina saliva exchange?), when he should be chastised for his music. If I really wanted to hear a crappy version of Queen, I would head to the nearest karaoke bar on a Friday night and listen to your dime a dozen “dude bro” butcher “Another One Bites the Dust”.
Who cares if he kissed a dude America! We are so caught up with his onstage antics we are missing a much more important point…HIS MUSIC IS NOT GOOD. The fact that a guy who sounds like cats in heat when he sings got a record deal should really be what’s upsetting people.
And really ABC, does it come as a total shock that something like this would happen?
As 2009 quickly comes to an end, you’re probably seeing a whole lot of “best of” lists. Personally, I love the “best of” lists. I love to see what other tastes are out there. Sometimes I agree and sometimes I completely disagree with the lists, but nevertheless, I enjoy them.
But if you’re sick of all the “best of” lists this year, or if you’re just looking for a good laugh, Pitchfork has a great list of The Worst Album Covers of 2009. My personal favorite is MannieFresh (pictured) and his use of Transformers.
