I am addicted to Adam Lambert. There. I've admitted it. I've sort of been in denial as to the extent of my dependence on seeing or hearing anything related to him. I have been known to chase down the most fragmentary bit of gossip about him with great fervor. I spend hours surfing the web hoping to find just a crumb of some mention of him. I follow him on Twitter and positively delight in his often pithy and insightful tidbits of thought. I vote for his music videos on VH1 at the end of each day when I find I have nothing else I have to or wish to do.
Why should you care? Well, I write this as a sort of warning to those of you who have not yet succumbed to Adam's charm, wit and vocal ability to sing the bajeezus out of every song that flows from his vocal chords. But, I have managed to get ahead of myself. Perhaps, although this is an extremely remote possibility, you have no idea who Adam Lambert is. If this is the case, then I want to know what planet you have been on and whether or not there is intelligent life out there in space.
Adam Lambert is a singer. An extraordinary singer. A future legendary singer. An unforgettable singer. An energetic, talented, extreme, gorgeous, humble, intelligent, risk-taking singer. I could go on and on because his positive traits go on and on. But, above all, he is himself, without apology, and with great dignity and pride. And, that is the quality in him that I find so irresistible. He is unafraid to be a human being and he embraces life regardless of the imperfections it offers. I get the vibe that his tolerance and acceptance of diversity is sincere and heart-felt.
Anyway, if you haven't yet listened to him sing, you really should. There are many, many videos on YouTube that feature him. Just remember, all it takes is one small sample of the totally delicious Adam Lambert to develop an addiction.
