Am I a self loathing gay man if I say that I don't like Adam Lambert?

    Sorry.

    Week after week on American Idol I feel like I am being conned. I don't buy his shtick. I don't think he comes across as genuine. He makes me uncomfortable. He gets special treatment, dramatic lighting and camera angles that the other contestants do not get.
    I think he is a "professional" and not what AI is supposed to be about.

    I would vote for Allison, Kris, and Matt over Adam in a heartbeat.

    All of them except

    Danny.

    Danny Gokey = Taylor Hicks
    ....and that ain't good.

    Your thoughts on American Idol?

    I hope Kris Allen wins. I think he's the best singer - and he's definitely the cutest.

    What's next Silverfox? a Wedding Announcement? A "Palin in 2012" sticker on your car?

    Who's Adam Lambert?

    Yes, of course you are a self-loathing gay man.

    I don't understand why Cowell and the others are pushing him so much. He's ok, nothing special.

    Nope. Not at all. I don't like him either.

    Yup If this was "Broadway Idol" I would vote hands down for him.

    If it is "American Idol" it would be Kris or Allison.

    But I love Danny and Kris.
    Psh Danny is not equivalent to Taylor Hicks. He's way better. And I think he's quite handsome icon_smile.gif

    Nobody said American Idol is for "amateurs only". Plus, Adam Lambert never had a record deal so he's not a "professional" in the sense that other contestants have been. You can't blame the guy for having his stuff together. Anyone who goes on this show to win should already have some experience being on stage and an air of professionalism. I like Adam because of his professionalism (which includes his smart song choices, strong vocals, and superb stage presence).

    Also, no you are not necessarily a self-loathing gay man by not liking him...unless you really are in your head. Personally though, I just don't think I could not vote for him and not have our first openly gay idol. He could potentially open doors for other mainstream openly gay artists and allow us not to have to jump through hoops.

    Definitely doesn't make you self loathing. I can see why people would not like him. What bothers me is when people shrug him off to prove how rugged and and un-gay they are, which I think is largely unnecessary. That or they shrug him off saying he sucks at singing. He may be over the top and annoying but he certainly doesn't suck.
    When I first saw him I thought "Oh great another stereotypical wanna be emo-ish gay guy singing cher". But... now I think he is awesome and his campness works for him. Plus, the guy is sexy as hell (I'm not talking about the make up and hair just him).

    I think he's the kind of person who will draw a lot of attention. Lots will love him and just like anything else, many will hate him.


    PS It may be that he takes advantage of the camera work much more. Maybe he plans it out with the producers and maybe his stage presence makes you notice the camera work more. Just playing devil's advocate.

    Can Adam sing? Yes

    Would I buy his album or go see him in concert? Nope

    Are you a self-loathing gay because you don't like him? Not a chance man. It's all about personal taste. I'm with you on Danny as well. He's another great singer, but it just sounds redundant. I can't find anything original about him.

    I cant stand Adam either - I've just opted to stop watching. His hair and makeup drives me crazy, not to mention that I don't enjoy his singing. I think he's just taking the EMO phase too far in his lifespan. He needs to modernize, regroup, and get a voice that isn't annoying.

    I can't wait until Adam makes an album. He's the first AI contestant whose record I'm anxious to hear. The kid is a pyrotechnical display everytime he sings. His ability to jump registers makes my jaw drop.

    I don't think you're self loathing not to be a fan.

    I don't know if you're a self-loathing man, but this is a self-loathing thread. icon_rolleyes.gif
