A Place Where Adam Lambert Dared To Go: It's Called A Xanadon't

So, Glambert unveiled his utterly ridonk album cover yesterday. I can't quite form a coherent critique of it, but many things run through my mind when I look at it. Things like...

  • Holy shit. I had no idea that Glamour Shots was still in business.
  • Was it "Bring Your Child To Work Day" at the graphic design studio? And do the graphic designers interpret that as "Let Your Child Do Your Work Day?"
  • Can you buy retinal brushes over the counter?
  • Daddy, why is he so much prettier than me?
  • HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. *sigh* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
  • I guess people will stop asking if he's gay now. Because that's gayer than the Village People having an orgy with a bunch of Cher impersonators on a pink float driven by Liza Minelli.

LOL forever that just last week after Adam's Details cover spread featuring him bein sexy with a naked chick, many blogs were filled with comments incensed that OH NOES Adam was somehow betraying his gay, selling out to conform, blah blah blah. I think this CD cover answers those concerns with a sparkly rainbow giggle of NOPE. Gotta confess, I just can't help myself, it's so ridiculous that I actually kinda love it. And ya gotta admit, it won't exactly blend in with the rows of earnest serious covers in the racks at Walmart. LMAO. Oh Adam, never ever change.

Oh Lord, he looks like Marilyn. And I don't mean Munroe.

Cora said...

Oh. My. God.

Glamour Shots is behind this. I think you're right.

Penny said...

LIZA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry I have a short attention span.

I agree..the cover is a little redick...

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

I'm definitely with you on the second to last comment.

Billy said...

Egads. I thought for a minute that Pink had changed her name.

Looking at that cover makes me wish you'd bring back the Firecrotch...

Char said...

You gotta admit...he IS pretty.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

He really should have gone with a brown-black mascara, would have softened his look.

Tony Alva said...

That's the cover huh?

Good luck with that. I guess he's counting on the fact that nobody buys CD's or vinyl anymore.

Bond said...

"ha ha I won and now i can screw with your brains"

Wait this was not a Fire Crotch Contest????

My gosh! I woke up and it's 1984 again.

Your last point made me spew stuff into my keyboard.

This is amazing!

OMG. Adam jumped the rainbow shark.

Doc said...

Is it just me or does he kind of look like Kelly Osbourne?

And you're right about the non-mystery as to which way his gate swings. This photo is as queer as a cat fart.

Okay, so I've been ripping on this album cover ever since I saw it, but the more I look at it the funnier it gets. He did say it was purposefully ridiculous. Maybe that's just it. It's meant to be laughed at. Well, if so then color me amused.

Alice said...

why is there so much airbrushing?! and so little shirt?! and so much lime green undereye shadow (eg, ANY lime green under-eye shadow)?? so many questions.

catherinette said...

That shot is trannylicious. Boy George should be proud.

The Bewildered Brit said...

Blimey, have I walked back into the early 80s??

CDP said...

That's the funniest album cover I've ever seen. It's awesome.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Ummm, as a makeup artist I must say that his makup is FABULOUS!

I think he's so preety.

Gwen said...

He needed to make the "purposeful" part of "purposefully ridiculous" more evident. All I see is ridiculous. And pretty. A whooooole lotta pretty.

words...words...words... said...

Where is the unicorn?

He shouldn't be allowed to use the "Purple Rain" font for his album title. Nononono.

Flannery Alden said...

I'm sorry, but I love it.

Coaster Punchman said...

There is a famous poster from the 80s that looks almost exactly like that. Really Adam, is it necessary to be that gender-bending? Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Coaster Punchman said...

Ok, I just spent 20 minutes doing every kind of Google image search imaginable to try to find the "famous" poster I referred to and I've come up empty handed. Damn you for reminding me.

Whenever something outrageous happens related to American Idol, or I just need a good laugh, especially when looking for reasons not to go to the gym, I think, "I need to check out what Beckeye's got to say." You NEVER disappoint. This post in no exception. "Glamour Shots" - I'll never look at this album cover again without thinking it!

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
