Crazy Adam Lambert Fans now accusing VH1 of discrimination
The video for Adam Lambert’s For Your Entertainment is no longer on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown. Hmmm…maybe because it hasn’t really gotten a big push since the AMAs and Lambert’s been performing Whataya Want From Me in major public appearances ever since? And since the song has not gotten a lot of video or radio airplay, it typically falls off the charts. Maybe its because some music networks only allow a song to be on the charts for a certain amount of time? Maybe other videos have been released which are more popular? I mean, this is just me speculating based on things I know and uh, common sense.
For all the INDUSTRY INSIDERS who post ad nauseum on Idol fantard message boards, you might think if a song dropped off a chart, they might understand why. Of course, industry insiders are usually only those who check TMZ daily or was once the 13th caller in a local radio promotion giving away Styx tickets.
They’re so savvy, they insist on spamming radio stations everywhere, as well as major networks. Hell, just see how they jump on any and every arbitrary online poll. And with the invention of Twitter, Glamberts can get their word out faster and more incessantly than before.
Since Lambert fans have been voting their buns off every week since the video’s release, they just don’t understand why it disappeared off this week’s countdown. Uh, oh, VH1. Get ready for the outrage!
WTFWTFWTF!! I watched the whole effin’ thing today just to find KA at #8 and Taylor Swift at #1!!! We are certainly a screwed up mainstream, blah, mamsy pamsy, uptight country. I am pissed!! I’m moving to Puerto Rico!!! I could scream!! I am screaming!! (BTW every time I went to the voting site, it would not let me vote!)
Actually, asshat, Puerto Rico is still the U.S.A. And yes, I am sure since you weren’t able to vote, it is a conspiracy against YOU! I can’t even dignify responding to the rest of your lunacy because you do an exemplary job of making yourself look like an ignorant fucknut. You’re just pissed because Kris Allen is still on the list. Admit it.
What she said! 😡 I’m so sick of Nickelback and their clones–standing there wearing a plaid flannel shirt and holding a guitar–and country cross-over artists. . . whatever happened to bands like Queen, Styx, Led Zeppelin??? I was shocked that Adam dropped totally out of the countdown. . . FYE, IMO is such a great song, with a great music video. . . grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
HA! I knew it! I just pulled Styx out of my ass in my intro for this post but you just PROVED my point. Oh, and your blatant digs at Kris Allen aren’t exactly subtle. Since I assume you HAVE been living under a rock for over 30 years, it may come as a shock to you but bands like Queen, Styx and Led Zeppelin have been gone for a long, long time. If you really gave a fuck about music, you would have lamented a lot of things in the decades since.
I’m sorry for stating my opinion. I wasn’t trashing anybody. . . I love all types of music. . . it’s just that some of the current acts out there get a little bland and boring for me. . . I thought I was on an Adam forum. Should I just keep quiet about what I like and don’t like, and not support Adam as devotedly as I am?
Your passive-aggressiveness makes me roll my eyes.
Is VH1 not supporting him because of his Vevo affiliation? It has been rumoured that WWFM will premeire on Vevo. An artist like Adam could make a new network.
I didn’t know voting was open again. I didn’t expect it to be open for voting again until today. The Kris fans at MJ’s are really rubbing it in. Can someone explain why Kris’s chart numbers are going up, but not his sales? The opposite seems to be happening to Adam. FYE is a great song why is it being blackballed in this country?
Oh, this one is going to be fun. I’m going to hold off laughing at your belief an artist like Adam could make a new network, because that shit is just too hysterical for words. Few artists alone could make a new network succeed. Let’s move on shall we, so I can laugh at your other ridiculousness.
Can someone explain why Kris’s chart numbers are going up, but not his sales? The opposite seems to be happening to Adam. FYE is a great song why is it being blackballed in this country?
This is easy. But I have a fully-functional working brain. Kris’ chart numbers are going up because Live Like We’re Dying is receiving more airplay. It’s a catchy song. To my knowledge, even his most overzealous fans haven’t incessantly spammed radio stations or major networks. People like the song. If people continue to like his music, perhaps his album sales WILL increase, especially once a second single is released. Quite often, believe it or not, people won’t buy an album unless they hear more than one song from it. But this would probably also explain why Live Like We’re Dying has had consistently higher iTunes sales than Lambert’s releases. At this moment, Live Like We’re Dying is #21 on the iTunes singles charts. More people are downloading that song…because they like it. Maybe if they hear another they like, they will download that and consider purchasing the entire album.
Sure, Lambert has had better album sales, but I would love to see what percentage of those sales are just Glamberts buying MULTIPLE copies of the CD. Hell, I bet every friend/family member of a die-hard Glambert got a copy of For Your Entertainment this holiday season.
Oh, and just because For Your Entertainment fell off the charts, this does not mean Lambert is being BLACKBALLED because he likes to lick balls. But more on that in a moment, because you know where this is going, don’t you?
I’m calling out to all Adam fans go to VH1 and vote for his video also if u have twitter help to trend #PutAdamBackonVH1 We need to move Adam to the top. He worked hard in 2009 despite the setbacks. Let’s show him we have his back It can trend with our help. And believe me VH1 takes notice of even the small things. So please trend #PutAdamBackonVH1
Oh for chrissake, I’m going to shove a hashtag up all you moron’s asses. How is that working out for you, anyway? Not trending is it? Of course, The Moppet of Beelzebub is, as per usual. Now I did hear some Glamberts were trying to trend RIPJustinBieber. This made me giggle. I mean, that would actually be all sorts of awesome, however, that wouldn’t mean you could then get Lambert or #putadambackonVH1 to make the top trends, either, because it would just be overrun with more Bieber Beelzebub crap.
I think there is something else going on here with FYE not being on VH1 charts. Seems like there are a lot of people that voted a lot including myself. Now I’m not sure what to do to help get FYE back on the top 20 countdown. If someone can tell me what to do I’ll be glad to help out.
Conspiracy! Can you smell a homophobic conspiracy???
How do you get FYE back in the list for the countdown? Anybody know?
And today, Adam’s album is about to drop out of the top 25 on Amazon. Not a happy couple of days.
Wow. If this is the shit you worry about day in and day out, you should really take all that money you want to drop on multiple copies of For Your Entertainment and buy a real life.
Adam is so mutlifaceted- I think it confuses your average music lover. You’re right about FYE. It is a fascinating video with so many layers, ethereal lighting, intriguing setting!! The fact that it’s super sexy and suggestive, pushing the limits, and yet tongue in cheek makes it brilliant! And of course, THAT FACE!!! Adam’s eyes burn right through you! He does “own your soul”!!
Just because glitter reflects and sometimes refracts the light does not mean someone is multifacted. No offense to Lambert, but you’re an idiot. And as far as calling others average music lovers…you’re obsessed with a guy you saw on American Idol??
How could it be??
Duh. CONSPIRACY ABOUNDS!
Best singer of the decade? Wait. If you didn’t say century or EVER, that does not mean you are a true fan!
Oh yes. Because it ALL comes back to one thing–Adam Lambert is a gay man. That’s the reason he hasn’t been named the pop heir to Michael Jackson, or given a prime starring role in an Oscar-bait film for 2010. It’s the reason he hasn’t sold as many records as Susan Boyle. And of course, its the reason he is no longer on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown.
