Merry Christmas from Top Idol

December 25, 2009

Happy Xmas to everyone from St. Louis, home of the Cardinals, the Blues, BBQ pork steaks, toasted ravioli, the Arch, the largest Bosnian community outside of Bosnia and the birthplace of myself and…Jon Hamm!

Since arriving back here on Tuesday, I’ve done two classes of that crazy Bikram Yoga crap, the “hot box” stuff (there is a place down the street from my parents’ house) and hung out with my family. I have gotten my parents through the entire first season of Mad Men. Xmas Eve confirmed that my family just wants to break out into song whenever possible, which is rather odd, considering we are not very uh, tuneful. My one brother-in-law even knew a bunch of words to…Rent? (I hate Rent. Anyhoo, I had no idea he loved it.) It was also discovered that my siblings and two of my nieces are also…Kris Allen fans!!! In fact, my niece asked me not to make fun of her when she opened the CD (a gift from my mother, as directed by my sister). Obviously, she does not read my blog. I informed her there would be none of that going on, although I will, in fact, still bet money on that Taylor Lautner kid being gay. I even semi-bonded with one sister over…So You Think You Can Dance. Thankfully, she hated Mollee, too! Funny how you can find common ground with family members over shitty reality talent shows.

I hope everyone had a very, very, very merry Christmas. What have you been doing over the holiday? Any good gifts? Stay tuned for the 2009 These Mean Nothing Awards — have you gotten your suggestions in yet?

    Hey, 8sourcandy and others interested, have you seen this:

    http://www.votefortheworst.com/forum/topic6324-900.html

    Scroll about half way through to Mysterioso’s post from yesterday. I recalled seeing the name before so I googled, and sure enough, this woman was all over the Terri Sanvicente story on twitter. Know anything more about this? Weird. I also can’t believe how stupid the people who were scammed are. WOW.

    ^^^Hahaha. You glamtards already have called me a homophobe plenty of times. That was AFTER you all became sudden “new gay rights activists” as Rickey rightfully mocks ya’ll ๐Ÿ˜€

    Whilst reading your post above, I could just hear the putridly proud pop puke sounds of Music Again in the background, you in puffy paint glitter sweat suit and a waving flag of rainbow stripes – bedazzled with bligee glitter and dancing unicorns.

    When you mock his sexuality, I think, maybe the gay thing is a little hard for you to handle.

    Just when I was starting to think there was hope for you ๐Ÿ˜€ ….

    Adam was a plant. He’s using his gayness as a media manipulation to try to famewhore it up. He’s no different then Balloon Boy’s dad. No wait, that guy was creative at least! Adam is a copycat of the worst kind. His CD is just another level of karaoke – singing other people’s songs. He’s getting the same type of pimping and money thrown at his “career” as did Jordin Sparks, another one of Randy Jackson’s plants. He’s going to be just as much of a money pit, if not more. At least the kind of shit they have Jorbacca sing sells to the singles buying lowest common denominator – which is the average top 40 listener. Adam can’t even crack that…

    Adam is also two faced about his gayness. It became political only days later when he did a 180, For His Convenience. He’s an actor.

        Ugh, I also should have proofed my post…again… ๐Ÿ™‚

        Explain to me, Adam fans here, why Adam should have been allowed to “compete” on AI when he recorded a Queen song previously for Randy Jackson’s Dance Crew show? Plus, you know damn well he had a pre existing record contract that AI bought out (quietly) – because those CDs would never been released if he didn’t, right?

        • Lauren permalink
          December 30, 2009 10:48 pm

          He didn’t have a pre-existing record contract…That cheap stolen music CD whose name I can’t remember was collected after Adam became famous. There was no real record contract.
          Why is singing songs given to you by other artists considered Karaoke? Even Kris did it!

          • Mithra permalink
            December 30, 2009 10:56 pm

            How do you know he didn’t have a contract? I believe they claimed he did. They were allowed to release it. It didn’t sell well just like his “official” release” ๐Ÿ˜€ – but if you compare percentage wise on the profit minus costs, they probably did better.

            I thought Kris wrote most of his CD. I think Adam got third billing on a couple of tunes to try to make him look legit. Like he added a “the” and a “uh huh” and an “or” here and there.

              December 30, 2009 11:22 pm

              They were demos. He was hired to sing on some songs by another artist. It wasn’t considered a recording contract because Adam never knew his versions would be released. That’s how I understand it anyway. His debut is selling well, just not getting airplay. It is selling much better than Kris’ in fact, though Kris’ is getting significantly more radio plays.
              Kris wrote on much of his CD. There were still 4 that he didn’t contribute to at all. One of them was a cover. Adam wrote on 4. He got 3rd billing on 2 but 2nd on another and 1st on one. Adam didn’t sing any previously recorded songs though. If any song on either album HAD to be called karaoke it would be “Heartless”.
              In my opinion, it isn’t.

              December 31, 2009 12:54 pm

              He was contracted to sing demo music in the same way a backup singer or session musician would be. It’s not an actual record deal. As for the “Randy’s plant” remark, I don’t see how that maters. If that show conducts itself like that, and he obviously isn’t the only one accused of this, then it’s still part of the whole idol crap machine process anyway. So, who cares?

              His album is very good. I will agree that some songs sound like covers, but, they are still damn good covers! The songs that I think are genius, are the ones he collaborated on. I know you don’t believe he was much of a contributor to that process, but, I strongly disagree. If you listen to music he collaborated on before Idol, you will hear phrasing that is similar. ‘Down The Rabbit Hole,’ ‘Broken Open,’ and ‘Strut’ are great songs with beautiful, interesting, even humorous lyrics.

              I find it distasteful to continually pit these two men up against each other when they both are deserving.

                Bingo!

                When the finale happened, I pretty much thought, hey, they both won. It doesn’t matter. They were the guys who deserved to be the final 2 standing. THEY BOTH WON. And I find it utterly unnecessary and ridiculous that there is still a ongoing “battle” of sorts, the fan wars, the what not. But hey, that’s Idol.

              Oh, okay, so even if they are breaking their own rules, rules they only enforce if they don’t get caught, or caught to the point that the mainstream media picks it up, like with Joanna Pacitti which was so blatent that even they noticed. Jordin, Carly, and Adam, all worked professionally and are connected to Randy Jackson, a judge. If it was Danny Gokey, would you be like “so what”? Sorry, it’s corrupt and no excuses for the guy you’re tarding over. If he wasn’t on Idol, and for some reason got a decent contract the old fashioned way, do you think you would even have bought his CD, let alone become a hardcore fan? Think about this, seriously.

              As for his other record contract, he was not just singing other people’s demos. He co wrote songs. Big difference.

              I don’t feel like arguing all those points. I’ll leave the technical stuff to 8sourcandy. But Mithra, besides Season 8 and Kelly Clarkson, I’m not a fan of idol. If Adam had gotten a record contract the normal way and I heard one of his songs, I would have fallen in love with him just the same. Yes Idol introduced me to him, but it’s not the reason I’m obsessed with him.

        December 29, 2009 12:00 pm

        I read somewhere that she did (probably on here). As far as talent, I have no clue…it’s hard to tell from that. I think she had said that she would be great for Reese Witherspoon’s little sis in something. (apparently lots of friends think there is a resemblance).

          I just don’t like the fact that she never would have landed the role if it hadn’t been for Kris winning idol. But you know what, if she ends up being good I don’t care. If she actually has talent, I can’t blame her for taking the opportunity when it presents itself. To me, she only look like Reese in the way that they are both pretty blonds.

            I don’t get the comparison either. (you’re right…both blonde, other than that…????) It’s not fair that having connections gets you jobs, but that’s the way it’s been for a long time. My sister has worked with theatre companies, and has auditioned for (crappy B-type) films before, but she can’t get anything…so I’m torn on this. Good for her catching a break, but that won’t help her keep a job. Good luck to her, I hope she is talented.

              they both have “bubble” eyes and big foreheads….in addition to being petite and blond. umm, i read she wanted to pursue acting in NY but decided to stay in AR because of her relationship with Kris. She was in the drama club and did theater …..the extent of her talent is uncertain. I still think she looks like a dwarf but that might work in Hollywood. (pretty dwarf, but a dwarf nevertheless ๐Ÿ™‚

            Actually, for women, shorter is better. You’d be surprised how many big male lead actors are under 5’9″. Big egos don’t like to stand on boxes or look up to their leading ladies. That says nothing of her talent, just that her “look” is good.

            Looks like this is an AK based webseries. Not sure it’s that big a production, and more than likely there wasn’t a ton of good competition for the role. Interesting that the trailer showed no dialogue at all. That’s usually not a good sign, but that’s on the writer’s head, not Katy’s.

            I just want to hear that she’s studying out here. As long as she stays away from Milton Katselas, she could do well. Very, very far away. He’s basically turned his classes into Scilon induction courses, and his coaching talent has gone out the window.

            I really do wish her the best of luck. It’s hard out there.

              December 30, 2009 1:50 am

              I don’t think any actors will have to worry about being towered over by Katy. I’ve seen lots of pics of her and Kris together, and he is significantly taller than she is, even in sizable heels. I doubt she’s over 5′ tall. (Kris says he is 5’7″, but many people seem to think he’s much shorter…if that’s true, she may be an actual dwarf, in which case TI will HAVE to like her!)

              This is odd b/c I’ve been on a Veronica Lake/Alan Ladd (he was another shorty from AR…I learn things on imdb!) kick lately. One of the reasons they were paired together so often is because she was so tiny. Alan Ladd’s height was listed at 5’4″ and he was EXTREMELY sensitive about it. He did the whole box-standing thing apparently.

              I had no idea about Alan Ladd! Yeah, imdb is a funny thing. Bogart was a big “box stander” too, but even he wasn’t that short.

              Any recs? Sounds like an interesting kick.

              The only person who ever shocked me with how much shorter he is than I’d pictured? Lyle Lovett. 6′, but still shorter in person than you’d ever figure.

              its not just her height (or lack of)…her arms and legs seem a bit off. slightly stubby, hence the dwarf reference. now im having flashbacks to when I worked in fundraising and i had to drive a van full of midgets (and one dwarf) across the desert to charity bball game. yes, they played basketball! and those little fkers won! over a team of police officers!

    Catching up here, but even if he had wanted to, how on earth could Lambert have convincingly pretended not to be gay when there were all those pics of him out there?

    I don’t think he ever intended to go the AI route (who does?) ; if that had been his plan early on, he would probably have been far more discreet. He just did what a lot of Idols have done- turned to AI when everything else failed and they were getting old. He was forced into being ‘brave’, IMO.

      If Adam told 19E he wanted to remain closeted, they would have made that happen. The reason why public confirmation is so important, is because even if we know someone is gay, until they say so, it’s sort of off limits. Melissa, Rosie, Ellen, Clay…did you ever think they were straight? Ever? No, but mainstream media backed off until they confirmed it. So, yes Adam coming out as early in career as he did, while on a show that judges you week to week, was brave. Considering the audience of AI, very brave indeed.

    I’m here to Glambert bash!

    “Adam is making history and he is the first openly gay artist. Sometimes the people who take the first steps in equality take a lot of heat” -retweeted by one of my favorite crazies.

    My reaction: …what? Ignoring all the other current openly gay artists, the first person that popped into my head was Elton John. My parents worship him and I’m pretty sure he’s been out a lot longer than Adam has…Yes, it is hard to be an openly gay artist, but Adam’s not the first…

    • Sherena permalink
      December 28, 2009 3:51 pm

      I think the idea (that your favorite crazy didn’t express too well) is that Adam came out at the beginning of his major label career, instead of after he already had major success and a fanbase to support him like with most gay artists who come out. It was definitely a brave move, but of course the times have changed since when Elton John revealed that he was bi… people of the 1970s were not as accepting of homosexuality as we are now. So… I get what people mean when they label Adam a trailblazer… although it’s definitely a bit of an exaggerated and grandiose statement to make.

        Because I store useless information in my brainโ€ฆ

        Elton John came out in stages. In the ’70s, he stated he was bisexual. At the time there were rumors that Bowie, Jagger and Rod Stewart were also bisexual, though those rumors were never confirmed as far as I know. Elton John married a woman in the early eighties. Then divorced her and declared that he was gay sometime in the mid to late eighties. He has stated in interviews that disclosing he was bisexual at the peak of his career cost him many fans and record sales. He had some hits in the eighties; however, he never did achieve the status he had in the ’70s. He also went bankrupt and then rebuilt his fortune with (ironically) Disney collaborations.

        There are many openly gay celebrities. Adam Lambert is the first to be openly gay from the inception of his career. I believe he is also the first openly gay celebrity considered a sex symbol. Yes, it was brave of him to own that. He easily could have stated he was bi and no one would have questioned it. So, if he never accomplishes anything else, at least he will have that. If he continues to follow bad career advice, it will be all he has!

          I can find this somewhere I’m sure, but actually David Bowie “came out” a year before the release of Ziggy Stardust. He wasn’t actually gay, and ended up being honest at some point in the early 80s, but he did publicly say that he was. It was suspected that even if it was a publicity stunt, and it was, that he was at least bi.

          I think the issue also comes down to whether or not it matters. It shouldn’t. There are lots of musicians who were always openly gay in their personal lives who never went to the press and said they were gay simply because they want their music to speak for them. Bob Mould comes to mind. I’d much rather it be about the music, and so would a lot of fans. Take your SO to events, and say that’s your SO, but no need to do a magazine cover. Make it normal, I say.

              EVERYONE had a record contract and at least some sort of success before coming out in a national forum. Adam was out before he had a contract, before he had an album and before he placed second on AI. When those kissing photos turned up, his response was “I am who I am,” which was tantamount to a confirmation, in my opinion. Bill O’Reily was discussing Adam’s sexuality on his show during top seven week. It was clear from the beginning that he was doing something that hadn’t been done before. You don’t need to like him to appreciate that fact.

              I don’t remember Michael Stipe saying he was asexual, but I don’t buy it when anybody says that. I know Morrissey said he was asexual, but I thought he said that to be cute (British humor and all). I don’t know how anybody could hear the song, “Ask” and think that dude was straight or asexual.

          I find it hard to believe that Adam is the first to be out from the beginning of his career. If that’s true, it upsets me. It really shows how far civil rights still have to go. *sigh*
          I’ll agree with you on that one. But that is because I find it hard to see anyone but Adam as a sex symbol.

            he might not be the first, but he is one of a few….sadly, same goes for actors. being homosexual can be the kiss of death (in terms of movie roles offered). thats why you see kevin spacey so discreet about his live and jermey piven basically lying about his. its the assumption (probably backed by maket/media studies) that suggest female fans will not support a gay celebrity because that man is no longer appealing/ attainable. Male fans for their part, might be uncomfortable supporting an openly gay man…..something certain men have no problem admitting in public (stupid stupid stupid). its the same wtih certain ethnic actors….i recentlysaw an interview with a black actress describing how she’s been told not to look “too black”. (i have a gfriend who works for the studios, was with fox, now with paramount, and she has the same issue at work. her hair has to be straightened bc leaving it naturally curly in an afro would look too shocking, unprofessional, ethnic.) too black, too gay, too anthying but Powder is apparently bad in this country. the tide is changing, but not fast enough IMO …..ok, slowly getting off soap box ๐Ÿ™‚

                A lot of people (including Everett himself) think that’s what kept Everett from becoming a full-blown international star, but I think its more his brazen personality. I, for one, have always been a fan of Everett. He actually has been back in the news of sorts, he wrote his autobiography, I think? And he’s had a couple of recent roles. I read a few articles about him recently.

                  Yeah, the only thing that kept Everett from becoming a major star was Everett himself. He’s sort of known for being an asshole, as opposed to just being brazen.

                  I get the”but…but…he’s gay” thing with NPH. I’m not even attracted to him in that way. I just want to talk to him, and geek out with him, and watch him do magic tricks. I bet he’s awesome. Someday…

                  I’m usually totally turned off the minute I find out a guy is gay. Bradley and Zach definitely suck, though. Let your cousin enjoy her crush. She’ll deal with it when she moves on to the next guy. ๐Ÿ™‚

                  The pic in that article was a good one, but I’ve seen some fairly recent ones that looked as if he’d had really bad plastic surgery. That’s not gonna help any either. I don’t know much about him personally, but he’s a fine actor and was quite good-looking in his younger days. He could possibly be correct about being out hurting his career, there are only so many gay best friend roles out there. I can remember him being cast as a straight man about 3 times off the top of my head. (there’s probably more, but that’s all I remember)

                  That would have to be a hard thing to keep secret now though, without the protection of the studio.(like back in the Cary Grant-Randolph Scott days)

                    Rupert Everett was not always out. It was sort of a big deal when he came out because he was already well known. Most actors/musicians/etc outright deny or stay vague and don’t discuss their personal life.

                    David Bowie said he was gay, no matter how many times he ammended it, almost FOURTY YEARS AGO. Plus, he did not record a much hyped commercial industry product filled with cast offs written by other artists ๐Ÿ˜‰ Speaking of copycats….check this out:

                      I don’t know how you measure people. When you condemn his music, I accept that we have different taste. When you mock his sexuality, I think, maybe the gay thing is a little hard for you to handle. But, when you criticize something that is good and brave, by all human reasoning, I have to challenge it. We live in a bigoted society. To stand before it, and reveal yourself because your conscience compels you to, is noble. To do it, knowing you are risking everything you’ve ever wanted, is brave. There are other things you can pick on, don’t be so vicious.

                      As for the boys… I’m sure they are already banging down Adam’s door. ๐Ÿ™‚

                      I can’t wait for Adam to start crushing on another tweentard fave, The Moppet of Beelzabub. He’ll start stealing his look, just you wait and see!

                      Some more out gay musicians from the olden times:

                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_John_Baldry

                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Robinson

                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Gay_musicians

                      I also take issue with the “Adam started his career out and so brave” claim. I think this was a new publicity twist with AI and Adam was the plant. Plus, it’s pretty much unusual for West Hollywood theatre boys to NOT be gay, and he didn’t start his career with AI.

                      This video is from 1965. Mick Jagger always teased the gay/bi thing since The Stones started. In 1962.

              As much as we want to blame Glamtards for stymieing Adam’s radio airplay, I think it’s because that industry is predominantly male and as Wino states, men do have a harder time (generally) accepting gay men then women do. If you look at Adam’s media coverage, woman and gay correspondents are really the one’s that are openly supporting him. Straight men, not as much. (Jim is one of the few.)

    “Today, Adam Lambert and the entire “Idol” community lost a great fan and friend. Terri Sanvicente (@glitteraquarius), a mother of three, died after being beaten with a tire iron. Jason Bouchard, the father of their children, is now facing murder charges, according to KHOU. Reports say Bouchard arrived at Sanvicente’s home in Houston, Texas on Thursday and first tried to burn it down. Sanvicente, her three children, and a babysitter managed to escape. But, as Sanvicente exited the house, reports say she was attacked by Bouchard. The babysitter tried to help but was also attacked. The babysitter said Sanvicente pleaded with Bouchard to stop until her death. Bouchard waited at the house for police to arrive and was arrested without incident. The three children were taken into CPS custody. ” AI now

Under the circumstances I will not presume to know her intentions or judge her too harshly. What may seem like inappropriate behavior to you, may be a very heartfelt expression of sympathy. We all grieve differently. I didn’t know Terri Sanvicente, yet, I was deeply moved by her death.

            She was probably DMed/emailed by people to stop then, and delete. She retweeted to well over 30 people when I saw it, and to Adam at least 7 times, then another weirdly spelled tweet about passing it around the world again, to others and Adam, and to his guitarist Monty. Maybe she deleted the 40/50 or so tweets and requests for people to pass it on, but it was there for hours and it was insane and tasteless. Many others retweeted it. People using a tragic death to gain attention from their Idol and other fans is a low I’ve never seen before. We’ll just have to agree to disagree.

              I suspect that Adam and the band have assembled a “Hot list” of crazy fans. She is probably on it. I imagine they will ignore her.

              Mithra, where do you find them? I never encounter this. Granted, I am only here and at Gossip Candy and sometimes MJ’s. I have tried to go into the forums to see for myself, but I usually stop when I need to fill out information.

              I’ve also seen her and others get into battle and very ugly on twitter about WHERE the money should go and accusing those who want to send it to a battered women’s shelter instead of some vague plan to give it to her family. I’m sure because the crime was so horrific local people will put out a fund anyway. These people are messed up and way out of bounds. Some are even tweeting Adam to donate his music to women’s organizations…W.T.F.? Her scary assed avatar with major CRAZY EYES has been changed as you know, so I’m sure some are trying to get her to chill. It’s still up on the twitpic, but much smaller, so you don’t get the full effect. She also has tons of tard art pics and of her with Adam, and of her poodle Fifi Smooshy Poo Poo Tinkle Marshmallow Ears or whatever the poor dog is called. She also claims to have a “hubby”…what kind of shlub marries and breeds these scary things?

              I forgot, she was also tweet spamming Jim Cantiello with the damn freaky thing she made.

              I first started finding the real crazed ones on the scaryboards (AI official, IDF) very early on, before the top 13. I don’t even go to the Adam only forums or ONTD_ai unless there is a direct link. MJ’s is enough of a headache to try to read. TWoP is another crazytown. They are finally leaving Rickey’s because he’s totally mocking them and letting us “evil hateful looser homophobes” like himself ( ๐Ÿ˜€ ) comment in Adam posts. The VFTW scaryboard thread in the season 1-8 folder, and the idletard thread in general chat is FILLED with glamtard insanity reposted and mocked.

              She really is setting herself up with that new avitar photo. Fat women can’t be depicted on postcards that read “Greetings from Water World” without the Shamu reference.

              Hahaha…I didn’t notice that since it was so small. I’m guessing she’s posted a larger pic? She’s all sorts of crazy. I don’t normally follow the glamtards on twitter because I’ve had just about enough of them and all they do is spam and are even more inane at the 140 character limit, but I saw Adam’s tweet and decided to check the hashtag out, thinking there was a good possibility it was some sort of fake internet death thing. I had to go through a shitload of spam to find real articles, because they were trying to trend it and I don’t know what this AINOW thing is. Seems new. Anyway, bitch is entertaining as much as she’s offensive:

      Haven’t you ever heard my very, very short (I swear) diatribe about why I dislike Rent? I’m surprised, especially since I know about your Broadway love. (But I worship Jesse L. Martin, does that count?)

      We can still be friends, can’t we? We still share the love of things like paper mache busts and midgets and J.D. Roberto! And hello? You’re the only other person I know who thought of Music & Lyrics when Adam Lambert performed Ring of Fire.

        TI, I am watching a Mad Men marathon. I hope to be finished will all three seasons before the year’s end. I am really enjoying it, although, I find Don Draper to be a womanizing asshole โ€” Geez, I hope we can still be friends! ๐Ÿ™‚

          How far are you? Trust me, the character is too complex to be a “womanizing asshole”. I promise.

          My parents and I are on the second episode of Season 2 at the moment.

            I just started the “Hobo Code,” he is more of a prick than an asshole. I nearly crashed my computer downloading the entire first season at once. I already had three episodes, but it worked out to be cheaper to buy the entire season rather than the remaining 10 episodes. It really is good. I only seem to like the woman on the show. All the men irritate me. I could never have survived that era without castrating a few.

              Season one complete and halfway through season two. I can’t help but notice that they eat a lot of ham on the show. I wonder if that’s on purpose.

          On the other hand, I’m relatively certain Dan Radcliffe isn’t gay…maybe bi, but definitely not gay…
