A Thought On Adam Lambert

So by now you heard about Adam Lambert and his boyfriend being briefly arrested in Finland after a drunken brawl in a gay bar last week. While I am a fan of Lambert's music, and I liked how he handled the coming-out issue during and just after his "American Idol" days, and I was on his side when people (and TV networks) flipped out after his American Music Awards performance a couple of years ago, I find that I like him as a person less and less.

He seems to be rather arrogant, which isn't a big deal in itself. But when you're a celebrity, and you date another celebrity, and he happens to be a TV "reality" show star (in this case, the Finnish version of "Big Brother"), and you get drunk and get into a big fight, you can't complain about the media being interested in you, and you really shouldn't say that the media exaggerates...

...especially when at least one person has said she was accidentally punched while trying to break up the fight. After I read the tweet shown above I stopped following Adam Lambert on Twitter. Like I said, I'm still a fan of his music, and I'm looking forward to his second album. But his huge ego, combined with his whining about the media, is more than I can handle.

Adam isn't arrogant and he is right the media did exaggerate. It was a drunken argument, no punches, no violence, no injuries, no charges. Wait until you have the facts before you judge. And by all means never believe anything by Perez Hilton who is nothing more than an attention seeking douche bag. This isn't the first time that he has deliberatly spread crap about Adam and many other celebrities.

Sorry, but I think he's arrogant. Not all famous people are perfect and universally lovable.

And I don't read Perez Hilton.

Here's some advice: don't be a fawning fanboy or fangirl. Think for yourself. Use your brain.
