Adam Lambert: Screechy Queen



Did you see Adam Lambert's American Music Awards performance last night? Probably not live, since no one really watches that lame awards show.

But you may have heard that the gay American Idol alum shocked — shocked! — Middle America with a performance that included simulated oral sex (the man-on-man kind) and a make-out session with his male keyboardist.

Big deal. It was all done to get people talking.

The real shocker is how screechy the chubby-looking Lambert sounded, straining to hit notes way out of his range. It was ear-shatteringly awful. And that's what people should really be talking about. —Michael Gallucci
