An innocent NBC entertainment reporter from Dallas incurs the Wrath of Glamberts
Greg Janda, a reporter in Dallas-Fort Worth, wrote a snarky review of Adam Lambert’s Time for Gargoyles video. If anything, it was about the ridiculousness of the video and 2012 rather than Lambert’s vocals. Of course, one look at the title (Explosions Nearly Make Adam Lambert’s Guyliner Run) and you knew this was not going to end well. It only took about two seconds for the stampede to begin.
Note to NBC… When presenting an article critiquing a music video, it would be to your advantage to have the author at least minimally qualified. I didn’t check the ‘mood’ button because ’embarrassed for you’ was not a choice.
Yes. Of course. Anyone who speaks even mildly ill of Adam Lambert (or David Cook or Clay Aiken or Danny Gokey or insert former male Idol contestant here) is not qualified to be a journalist.
Have you never before seen a video?
And Wow. You have to be at least 13 to comment on this blog but, obviously, you don’t have to have the maturity of one to write a review on this site.
Please send us a music critic. Oh, that’s right. NBC probably can’t afford one anymore.
His review probably isn’t much like the one I would have written, but it doesn’t mean Janda is a bad writer. And what makes you qualified to infer he’s not a music critic? Because you write 900-word reviews of every Adam Lambert appearance on Idol Forums or Adam Lambert Official?
Of course the video is ridiculous and the song is cheesy. But Adam is a brilliant singer just doing his job. Your personal bias is showing. That’s not what a critic should do.
And you’re a moron. He was critiquing the video more than anything. But this must be because…
I think your review stinks. Vocally this song is amazing and it is a music video, not part of the movie. Get over your prejudice and try to be objective.
You know what prejudice means…
I guess you ARE just showing your age as you said. Terrible lead in “explosions nearly make Adam Lambert’s guyliner almost run”. I guess this goes along with the terrible article. And as information Adam has proven to have tons more fans than Kris Allen and he would have won American Idol if there weren’t so many homophobic “christians” in the conservative bible belt. He is already a worldwide star and his album hasn’t even been released yet.
Sorry for you and your poorly written article.
BINGO! Naturally, since he’s in Dallas and does not think Adam Lambert shits unicorns with bedazzled-leather saddles, he’s a homophobic “christian”. Oh, assumptions. Just like being “jellus”…and miserable people…
OUCH!! Unhappy and bitter much? What sort of video did you expect from the theme to an over the top disaster film? But of course you didn’t seriously review the video or the song, because this article is just an excuse to vent your irrational hatred of a brilliant singer. Perhaps you’d be better served starting a blog and not pretending to be a journalist. I know I would be.
Yes. We’re all unhappy and bitter, us hater bloggers. And hey you, stupid, its a blog written as part of a larger media entity (NBC). Get a fraking clue. Don’t you know anything about how traditional media is nearly on life support and how big media entities are using blogs and other diverse online content in an attempt to at least recoup some of their heavy losses? Yeah. It sucks.
You like explosions?? Take a step back because Adam Lambert’s career is about to blow sky-high!
I bet you thought that was really, really clever. It wasn’t. Go drink some more Flavor-Aid.
