I just don't get how other people think they are so wonderful when I think they are not! That's all, and JLP just said it is okay to post negative comments just like was happening for years on the other thread! By the way I don't dislike all British artists. I DO like Ed Sheeran and Boy George and David Bowie and Elton John and Duran Duran. Muse and Coldplay not so much! :)



Negative comments on the other thread !!!! Funnily enough a lot of people got warned on that thread because of the constant arguments, which was mainly because Adam's fans didn't like ANY negativity towards him. Talk about double standards CNB, it's alright to be negative about SS, Beiber or Swift but if anyone dare post anything negative about Adam you cry foul. The day you're ok with negativity towards Adam should be the day when you're okay to post negative posts towards others.


It's funny, because when Glamberts push back against negative comments or even attempt to debate those comments, we get warned that the thread will be locked. I've counted at least 4 posts directly commenting on CNB's opinion in this thread but nary a peep from the mods about that.

Reverse course and say that those who wish to say negative things about Adam should also be willing to see negative things said about others, including Sam.

Personally I like Sam's music. It can be a bit repetitive but his voice is gorgeous and I think he's deserved all the accolades he's received...except that Oscar because writing's on the wall is a shit song no matter how pretty he sings it.

I do think he came across as an arrogant douche after winning too but I don't think he meant it that way.

On another note, looks like even though he checked out of twitter for a while (after the shit storm his oscar speech and subsequent fuckery caused) he's still around. He attended the after party following Adam's concert at Terminal 5 in NYC

I am willing to see 'negative' things about Sam Smith. I find it very ironic CNB has so much to say about the man when she hasn't even heard his full album. Then the irony of her posts about Sam Smith when she ended up very defensive when certain people had things to say about AL. And no one these days is even negative about AL.
I really like Sam's lyrics and vocals, clearly I'm a fan of the guy. Good for him in making it when so much attention is given to looks, which is what some are known for rather than the music. For me, lyrics and vocals always mean more to me than how attractive someone is.
It looked to me Sam Smith was surprised to win that award. Maybe he didn't have time to write a good speech, or maybe he was just nervous while giving it. I'm not offended by what he said, nor did I find it arrogant. He gets flack in some circles for not speaking about some things, and now that he has, there is also flack.
I posted the same pic above.

Don't know, I don't track or follow Sam Smiths every move.
But isn't it nice that they met each other :) ;)

Adam has been very gracious to and supportive of Sam but my complaint is whether it is a two-way street. Haven't seen complimentary tweets back to Adam from Sam or Gaga or anyone else!

I don't have to hear Sam's full album. I have heard his singles and his live broadcast from Rock in Rio. I don't like his voice because he doesn't have good diction and he's too whiney. Sorry!

Yes, it's nice that after four years, people around here have finally stopped venting their ire about Adam Lambert existing. Which they started doing without having listened to any of his albums.

I think it's odder for someone to go out of their way to vent negative opinions (and research) about an artist they've studied in depth. Because, if someone dislikes a particular singer, they tend not to listen to their work.

I really like Sam's lyrics and vocals, clearly I'm a fan of the guy. Good for him in making it when so much attention is given to looks, which is what some are known for rather than the music. For me, lyrics and vocals always mean more to me than how attractive someone is.


Well, good for you. But I have no idea who you are talking about that makes it on looks, rather than the music. It's Jennifer Lopez, right? Oh, wait. Is it Brian May? That is one good-looking sextuagenarian.

He should have been surprised. :lol:

I didn't think it was arrogant, either. A bit ignorant, but not everyone is an Oscar history buff. Or up on their gay history. We'd all probably be madder at him if he pulled out his phone onstage in order to look it up on Wikipedia. ;)

You know, compliments aren't really compliments if you are under obligation to return them. The quality of mercy is not strained and all that. Yes, it's polite to return compliments, but it's better when they are freely given.

And plenty of people -- famous people -- compliment Adam. Why worry about Sam Smith and Gaga?

I didn't say they were obligated to return them -- just pointing out that one artist is very generous in his praise and congratulations about success and others are not!

Okay, but those last four words aren't really necessary. It's enough to point out the positive.

no, it really wasn't your point. your point was that Sam Smith and Gaga don't reciprocate Adam's compliments, which isn't true in Gaga's case. She was positive about him singing one of her songs on Glee and she gave him a song on is first album so clearly she's at least an admirer if not a Glambert.

Sam showed up at Adam's after party, shows support to me.

It's not a contest anyway and Adam might just happen to be one of those overly effusive people who heaps praise over the smallest thing that delights him. That's a good quality but not one shared by most people IMO.

I am? What about THIS .....

"Sam adores Adam. He thought it was one of the best nights of his life," sources tell NAUGHTY GOSSIP. "The problem is that Sam is more into Adam, than Adam is into Sam. Adam likes Sam but just as a friend. Sam thinks Adam is everything. He is talented, and handsome and very, very sexy. Sam is telling friends that he is in-love."

Ha! Ha! Maybe Adam will be the inspiration for Sam's next "hit" album?

Or maybe it's complete BS that somebody just made up to generate hits to their site from gullible Glamberts.
