Adam Lambert – For Your Entertainment

30 11 2009

One night, a long, long time ago, in a dirty hotel room full of empty booze bottles and used condoms, David Bowie, Jon Bon Jovi, and Cher had a threesome – or ménage à trois if you prefer- and pooped out Adam Lambert.

I’ll leave it up to you as to whether or not that’s a good thing. I’ve listened to For Your Entertainment multiple times now, and I’m quite honestly just feeling ambivalent about the whole thing. I am a poor soul who is forced by people in my life to watch American Idol every year. Last season, Lambert was the only thing that got me through that show. He was my sparkly, glittery, makeup-y shining star. And I have to say that I’m disappointed. This whole album is just so, “meh”, and no matter how much I listen to it, I can’t get a feeling of who Adam Lambert is, or what his music’s about. The album is disorganized and doesn’t seem to flow.  It feels like he’s just a tool for the music of multiple other people. A player for a mixtape type of thing. There are a few bright moments in the album, songs that I like to classify as “gay anthem songs” – songs that I expect to be remixed and blaring when I go out to the gay clubs. These include Fever, Sleepwalker, and If I Had You.  I’ll shake my bootie along to these songs when I’m out on Saturday night, but in my head I’ll be thinking about how disappointed I am.

Adam, for your next record, stick to the anthems, buddy!

Hi kids, just some quick news for you this morning and then we’ll have a super fun announcement later this afternoon!

People are all a’flutter over Adam Lambert’s “campy”, over the top album art for his album, For Your Entertainment. I… don’t… get it. I mean, it’s Adam Lambert. And the album is titled, For Your Entertainment. What’s the problem here?

Canadian folk singer, Taylor Mitchell, was attacked and killed on Tuesday by two coyotes in Cape Breton Highlands Park, Nova Scotia. Earbudz sends our deepest sympathies to Mitchell’s family, friends and fans.

According to the Huffington Post, “Michael Jackson’s This Is It” took in $2.2 million domestically from its first screenings Tuesday night. Is it just that there aren’t that many good movies out right now, or people actually care? Spend your money on Zombieland, people! It’s funny and Emma Stone is HOT!
