Down With Adam Lambert!
The biggest criticism people have about our generation is that we don’t fight for anything. Unlike those who stood firmly against Vietnam, racial inequality, or the lack of women’s rights, we sorta sit back and let other people fight the battles today. We are lazy. We are greedy. Yada, yada, yada.
But I disagree.
I am not lazy and I will fight battles I am passionate about. Namely: America’s love for Adam Lambert.
When Mr. Lambert first tried out for American Idol I thought he was good…. in an over-the-top “I was in every high school musical” sort of way. He had a good voice, but he was loud and obnoxious and would really only shine as the lead in some sort of off-Broadway musical dedicated to the songs of Queen. He also had a horrible haircut and a serious addiction to guy-liner.
I wasn’t surprised when they let him through, but I never thought the day would come when Simon Cowell joined the millions of screaming teenage girls falling head-over-heels in love with Adam Lambert.
And watching Cowell plead with America to vote Lambert into the final two has made me angry. So angry, in fact, that I threw a perfectly good homemade chocolate chip cookie at the TV last night. Which my roommate promptly picked up and ate. I will not sit back and watch that karaoke freak take the coveted title away from two far superior singers. I refuse to let that man ruin a perfectly classic U2 song and then be crowned America’s idol. I will not let millions of impressionable young boys get a reverse mullet and start slathering on the man makeup.
Someone has to stop this insanity and if it has to be me, then so be it. I’m officially starting an Anti Adam Lambert revolution. I may not be able to take to the streets (mostly because I’m afraid of the wrath of the tweens), but I will use the power of my iPhone (and my votes) to end this Lambert madness. Who’s with me!?
It is never easy to go against the world and stand up for what you believe in, but this is an issue that just cannot be ignored. Down with Adam Lambert!
