Adam Lambert Looks Back On His Nasty SuBo Comments

| Filed under: Music MinuteSusan BoyleAdam Lambert


But he's still not a fan!

Adam Lambert admitted that his mean-spirited comments about Susan Boyle's album were a little over the line saying, "It came across a bit harsher than how it actually went down. But I'm not a fan of the record, it wasn't a lie."

As for people's misconceptions about him and being an American Idol contestant he explains:

"[People think] you come off the show and all of a sudden you are put in this machine and puppeted into this product. That's not my experience at all. I'm a pretty outspoken, upfront, forward type of person, and I have opinions about what I want to be as an artist.

"I told them I want to be glam, be pop, be rock, I want to be everything, blend it all together and have a great time doing it. Be theatrical and be out there."

Good for you, Adam — but we still think you could give SuBo a break! She has a completely different sound and audience in comparison to you!

    I believe here in America we are allowed to have an opinion. He didn't like her album. Fine. I'm sure she doesn't like his. Great.


  2. 2

    i actually agree with you Perez.

  3. 3

    Adam tries way to hard. He looks ridiculous.

  4. 4

    He was asked a question and answered it honestly. Shocking.
    The press blew it out of proportion, twisting it to sound meaner than it was. Shocking.
    He stands by the original opinion. Shocking.

  5. 5

    Re: gossipgrrrl – Agreed

  6. 6

    He is a jack ass, one who cannot sing, is fugly and mean spirited.

  7. 7

    Yes, Adam - put it all in the blender and guess what?
    All you get is something bland, murky, and mediocre.

  8. 8

    Adam is just mad cause he lost American Idol and SuBo is a lot bigger than he will ever be. He needs to grow up and move on.

  9. 9

    Re: gossipgrrrl
    Agreed and then we complain about fake celebs.

  10. 10

    Adam Lambert sucks. He's so lame with his whole "LOOK AT ME!! LOOK AT HOW GAY AND CONTROVERSIAL I AM!!" shtick.

  11. 11

    yeah, he's a big douche.

  12. 12

    WHO KNEW LAMBERT was even still in the business? He sunk. I DID see a great documentary on Susan Boyle though and an hour special on her. It was a very touching thing.

  13. 13

    at least she has an audience XD

    ok, that was a low blow, i still love Lambert though

  14. 14

    They both suck.

  15. 15

    Unfortunately, Adam Lambert should realize that she wasn't heavily promoted by anyone in particular the US… she created fame and a buzz for herself strictly with YouTube videos of UK television broadcasts and has sold CIRCLES around Adam Lambert in his own country. If anything, he's jealous she's been certified double platinum, while I couldn't even say if he's been even certified gold.

  16. 16

    nobody cares for him so hes trying to be on da lime light


  17. 17

    yeah, but stick to your own genre.

    different music for different likes.

    comment on what is in your range or knowledge. the fact that he felt he should have any opinion on something so foreign to him just shows his immaturity. he has a lot of growing up to do.

    yes, he is talented. but commenting on SuBo makes just about as much sense as someone like Michael Buble commenting on him. Why? They are irrelevant to each other.

  18. 18

    Re: technologyguyforever – Absolutely. He uses glam to cover for his lack of talent. He's the Kardasians of the music world.

  19. 19

    I'm sure Susan's no fan of yours either Adam. And as an FYI - you DIDN'T win American Idol so stop acting like you think you did. Go away you flamer.

  20. 20

    "I told them I want to be glam, be pop, be rock, I want to be everything, blend it all together and have a great time doing it. Be theatrical and be out there."
    It's nice that you want to be all these things and more, but the artists that were glam or truly out there (you have to go much further back than Lady Gaga) didn't make such a conscious decision to be such.

  22. 22

    I lost all interest in this creeper.
    He's not only rude, he's also bitter. Grow up!

  23. 23

    Perez…. You stupid, ignorent, fat fuck. You ought to try checking your facts before posting these lies and complete bull shit. IT'S NOT TRUE. christ!! This is rude, and immature.

  24. 24

    OH STFU Perez. You slam people every God Damn day.

    Where do you get off?

  25. 25

    I'm so glad Glambert didn't win Idol.. he would never be allowed to be himself with that kind of contract

  26. 26

    Hmm, Perez telling Adam to give someone a break from his criticism.. AINT THAT THE FUCKING POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK… Lay off of Kate Gosselin and others you slam on daily..

  27. 27

    Another fame-whoring queer, just like you pig face, I would love to kick the shit out of both of you fairies.

  28. 6one9 says – reply to this


    I'm not a Sue Bo fan either. She's b`o`r`i`n`g!!!!

  29. 29

    I detest both Adam and Perez!!!

  30. 30

    Jealous douche.

  31. 31

    PEREZ, STFU. You passive agressive agenda is so obvious. Someone's feeling bitter for not getting invited to Adam's birthday bash?

    @GOSSIPGRRRL "I believe here in America we are allowed to have an opinion. He didn't like her album. Fine. I'm sure she doesn't like his. Great.

    Next." A+ WELL SAID!

  32. 32

    Adam is asked about SuBo during an interview and he answers honestly….and this means that he is bitter? WTF? What about all the extremely successful artists he speaks highly of? Obviously, he is NOT a rude, bitter person.

  33. 33

    You really do hate Adam Perez. He's done said and done amazing performances and u refuse to play it.

    But he does give a bad name to Gays and hides behind that "I'm just being honest". There are things like class and decency and accepting others and giving them their due. I don't think he's as bad as Perez is on a mission to make him be.

  34. fiona says – reply to this


    And she is better. And more charismatic, which kills his pansy soul.
    I have no criticism for his opinion, only for his classless behavior.

  35. 35

    Earth to Adam:
    Your music was relevant in 1983…and Bowie did it SOOO much better…
    Susan Boyle's music, as Perez points out, is not even the same genre as yours…and why the stupid trash talk? Worry about your own future, their, hon, ’cause your 15 minutes are coming rapidly to a close…

    Oh…and Boy George did the make up routine better too…time to find something original, Miss It!

  36. 36

    Adam also said he was happy for Susan Boyle's success - which I believe. But he didn't like the ALBUM (and he was asked, he didn't bring it up out of nowhere). And he said so.

    In addition to being madly talented, good looking, and a good interview, he's honest - to a fault sometimes, as he's also said. I think that's just his "thing" -to say what he thinks rather than try to bullshit.

    He didn't spew horrific stupid personal slams, which is more than a lot of people who post here can say . . .

  37. Merab says – reply to this


    His music is forgettable…The guy is not interesting as an artist…
    He is fame-whoring…that is it I can see now so far

  38. 38

    Adam Lambert is so full of himself. He has not yet earned the PRIVILAGE of being able to call his own shots. I used to be a fan of his but his ego is disgusting and he is a stupid man. No sponsor will hire him or want him because he can't ge trusted and they don't know what they will get because he feels he is above rules. Carrie Underwood or Chris Daughtry - yes. They will work super bowls - while this chump crams his agenda down everyone's throat and is vulgar while doing it.

  39. 39

    perez finally found an up-to-date picture of Adam Lambert.
    who cares if he doesn't like Susan Boyle. a lot of 20-34 year old people probably *don't* like susan boyle. she's not for everyone. I'm glad Adams honest and not robotically scripted, like so many boring celebrities who are terrified to have opinions.

  40. 40

    I love Adam. ♥ And I don't like her so… I'm for adam.

  41. 41

    Adams a douche, who blew his chance at being a megastar because he wanted to be 'different' and 'out there'. What he became is a big douchebag

  42. 42

    Is Adam Lambert aware of the reality that, in fact, he is barely known and doesn't have remotely the global success of Susan Boyle? If Adam Lambert doesn't get a clue quite soon, he'll be just another wannabe hasbeen. Don't blink!

  43. 43

    Big fucking deal! He's not a fan of her music. That does not mean he doesn't respect her or like her as a person. I bet not all of you like EVERY single artist out there. Why should Adam have to? He should be able to speak his mind if he pleases.

  44. 44

    And yet she still managed to beat his sorry album in sales….Imagine that. Wonder if it has anything to with the fact she has talent????

  45. 45

    So Perez, what do YOU think of SuBo's single "Wild Horses" and her album? I think it's interesting how Adam gave an opinion on her music (not her as a person), but not a single person has stepped up to defend the music. Why does SuBo deserve a break for putting out shitty music? C'mon.

  46. 46

    Love A. Lambert…Rock out! Why doesn't everyone love him? He has the best vocals I've ever heard… save Christina and Celine.

  47. 47

    Either way Adam Lambert is manufactured. Its like Kelly Clarkson but with a rhinestone d$%k.

  48. 48

    BOOOO why does he have to be GAY GAY GAY WAAAAA WAAAAAA!

  49. 49

    know adam keep ur comments to urself, at least susan wont be the one that has herpes all over her face going down on everyone like you do!

  50. 50

    This guys starting to get annoying. And whats up with his face, got enough makeup on?

  51. 51

    Who is this Lambert anyway? He is only famous in the US, whereas Susan Boyle is famous all over the world.

  52. 52

    SUSAN BOYLE would not call him a wanker because that is an english word a scotsman would say teuchter or "tookie" … she would probably say "away wi yerself ya wee shite bastad"

  53. 53

    "…you could give SuBo a break! She has a completely different sound and audience in comparison to you!" Which means he's not allowed to express his opinion on his likes and dislikes? For a douche who trashes people for fun and profit, Pig Face, that sounds kind of hypocritical.

  54. 54

    BAHAHAHAHA…I just about fell on the floor when I read you telling Adam Lambert to give Susan Boyle a break…this coming from YOU? Why don't you take your own advice and start cutting people some slack you dipshit.

  55. 55

    I like Adam Lambert, but he'll go a lot further in this business when he starts looking like a star, instead of a freak…….He's no LADY GA GA. Try looking normal, and you will go far, far in this business, ala Michael Buble, etc.

  56. 56

    Nobody cares what this talentless turd thinks. He's irrelevant. His claim to fame is that he lost a karaoke contest.

  57. 57

    Who gives a flying f%$k what he - or anyone else for that matter - thinks about something or someone else. People need to chill and stop causing so much drama. Opinion is not fact.

  58. 58

    He is a terrible singer who can't control his voice. When is America going to realize that all American Idol does is give us trash. Where are these idols now? What a joke.

  59. 59

    and I think he is an asshole. I do not see mick jagger, billy joel, carry underwood, rebba, etc, etc, etc. commenting on new singers. or each other in a negative way. they keep that to themselves. as they should. Who the hell does he think he is? Everytime he opens his mouth, he offends more people then he gets on his side. And in the end he will blame it all on racism when it is just his nastiness and strangness

  60. 60

    I don't like her either - can't figure out what the buzz is about, except for her visual being so opposite of her voice, and the public's need to grab onto a hard luck story. The public is living their failed lives through her. That's all it is. This too shall pass. The public is fickle - she is a flavor of the moment, and everyone loves to jump on a bandwagon. Her second album will in no way sell like the first.

    Adam lambert is jealous of Susan Boyle bcz he knows his career is tanking! This time next year he will be forgotten!

  62. 62

    whether he's in a different genre or not, he can still not like subo.

  63. Sezzy says – reply to this


    Doesn't appear that many people are fans of your record either Adam. I believe SuBo AND Kris Allen massively outsold you?

  64. 64

    Why is this guy even still in the celebrity news at all? Don't you have to actually be a celebrity? Time for him to go back to singing in the bars, or at the county fairs, or wherever he can actually get someone to listen…Everyone is so OVER him and his entire personna.

  65. 65


  66. 66

    Does his opinion matter yet? Since he is barely on the 2nd rung of the ladder called UP, MAYBE HE SHOULD JUST FOLLOW THE OLD ADVICE:

    If you can't say something nice about someone, sit down and shut up.

  67. 67

    I've rather hear and see SuBo over Glambert any time! : )

  68. 68

    Re: Sezzy – Adam has sold TWICE the cds that Kris Allen has! Yes, Kris has had ONE single sell more than Adam's…but who cares. The CD is the meat and potatos…and Adam has sold WAY more. BTW, for all you idiots who insist on calling Adam a failure….only seven artists, in all of 2009, sold more than Adam did in the US. He's doing great!

  69. 69

    Susan is a tender person and requires kindness from her peers. She certainly has talent and those who think she doesnt, should conciously know that they should shut up. Let's not break her tender, loving heart. We are not all "tough as nails" as our dear Adam.

  70. 70

    I would like him to be quiet.

  71. 71

    He's still nothing but a flash in the plan so his opinion to me is not really worth much. Confidence is good, but he's a little to new to the scene for arrogance which can really trip him up if he's not careful.

  72. 72

    Re: SoozeCat

    The only failed life is yours. "Her second album will in no way sell like the first."
    Who the Hell are you, Nostrildumbass? I see your future. You will rot in Hell with Satan, you mindless piece of monkey feces.

  73. 73

    Back off Lambert, you wank. Susan's my neighbour (I live 5 miles from her house) and if you've got the balls, bring it on.


  74. 74

    you still turned out to be a talentless sob

  75. 75

    Honesty without compassion is brutality. There's always room for manners, and you can be completely honest without being hurtful. Maybe if Adam's mother had taught him better, he'd be doing better.
