Adam Lambert Didn’t Love Les Miserables

First of all, I haven’t seen it yet. I know, but I just don’t enjoy going to see movies right when they’re released. There’s too many people, and it makes me uncomfortable and also I can’t focus on the movie because some dude keeps checking his stupid cell phone. It’s annoying, and I’d much rather wait a couple of weeks to ensure that the crowds have died down. But make no mistake, I am DYING to see Les Mis. Absolutely dying.

But Adam Lambert has already seen it. He’s, like, way unimpressed, and here are the tweets to prove it:

Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers.

…it’s an opera. Hollywoods movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority. (Dreamgirls was good)

Anne Hathaway as Fantine and Enjolras were the exceptions for me.

Helena B Carter and Sasha B Cohen were great too.

And I do think it was cool they were singing live- but with that cast, they should have studio recorded and sweetened the vocals

Eponine’s voice was cool too…

I felt like I should ignore the vocals and focus on the emotional subtext- but the singing was so distracting at times it pulled me out.

The industry will say “these actors were so brave to attempt singing this score live”but why not cast actors who could actually sound good?

Sorry for being so harsh but it’s so True!

I’m so glad we are all discussing this now! Look-I grew up w this musical and so my expectations are quite high. Didn’t mean to b negative.

One more clarification: DO go see it for Anne Hathaways performance. It’s was breathtaking.

So basically, Adam Lambert hates Hugh Jackman. That’s it, right? And probably Russell Crowe, maybe Amanda Seyfried. Which is kind of weird, because all of my nerdy theatre friends went crazy over this movie, and they didn’t have anything negative to say about Hugh’s performance. It seems like Anne Hathaway was completely amazing, according to every review I’ve ever read, and that Russell Crowe just did not sound good at all. But that’s weird that Adam didn’t like Hugh Jackman, one of the actors who is actually very experienced in musical theatre.

Did you guys see this yet? Should I be as psyched as I am? Does Adam Lambert need to shut his stupid face?

Adam Lambert Looks Handsome Today

Can I tell you how much I (still) love Adam Lambert’s grey hair? Because I still totally love Adam Lambert‘s grey hair, and this shoot with Fiasco magazine only does him more justice in the looks department. In the photos (more in the gallery), Adam looks reminiscent of a Hollywood era gone by where Spencer Tracy and Humphrey Bogart probably felt pretty comfortable. Here’s an excerpt from Adam’s interview, from Fiasco magazine:

Adam on performing with Queen:

“Those shows I did with Queen were pretty surreal. I was really excited and super flattered but intimidated at the same time. How do you live up to some like Freddie Mercury? There was no way I could ever compete with him. I had to let that go and create an experience of paying tribute”

And Adam on his style:

“The way I look at it, there’s just as much pressure [on men], but men aren’t supposed to talk about it. It’s supposed to seem easy, but men, especially in the public eye, are just as worried as women are.”

Kind of boring, I know, but the pictures, guys. It’s all about the pictures on this one.

Love It or Leave It: Adam Lambert is a Few Shades of Grey

Wow, did you guys know that we haven’t talked about Adam Lambert since February! That’s like almost not even existing anymore (I kid, I kid)!

In all seriousness, though, we need to discuss what Adam’s doing with his hair these days. See, I like it. I liked that grey-locks thing years ago when it “first” came into fashion. And I like it now, I do. Adam’s hair, however, looks more spray-painted than actually dyed, and I don’t know, maybe that was the intention. But even so, it’s still pretty good. It’s way, way better than the greasy black he had going on for, you know, ever. It’s also infinitely superior to the whole circus ringmaster thing he had back in May of 2011, because my oh my was that utterly frightening (never, never do that again, Adam).

Anyway, what I guess I really want to know is if Adam’s still dating the small blonde man who goes by the name of Sauli. Because weren’t they fighting over hamburgers or other men or something at one point?

Also, just for the hell of it, let’s watch Adam Lambert’s first American Idol audition, because I’m in the mood to REMINISCE:

So sweet and endearing, right?

The hair—love it or leave it?
