The Divine Adam Lambert

I don’t follow Adam Lambert. But while brushing up on the latest in what journalism calls music news, I found this video:

Okay, I thought. This is a male archetype that’s been absent for awhile. Let’s see where this goes. But then I saw this video.

Look, Lambert, your foot size might be the same as Bowie, Freddie, or Warhol; but that doesn’t give you right to parade yourself as the second coming of gay, artistic pretention- you aren’t filling anyone’s shoes. You’re making a mockery of yourself and them by proxy. Provocation and sex is not a serviceable replacement for talent, lyrics, or melody. Stop, please, for all of us.
