‘Critic’ Matt Oliver Overcomes Gay Hate And Stupidity To Enjoy Adam Lambert Concert.
What a strange review. He seems compelled to use gay slurs from the 1950′s, I presume to appeal to his ‘reader’.
He seems surprised the audience is made up of woman, rather than gay men having some kind of Roman sex orgy. And he is begrudgingly forced to admit he really enjoys the concert. Totally random stupidity. Some highlights, which I won’t debut, as they speak volumes about this man……
The night before, A.I.’s 2011 winner Scotty McCreery was gracing the stage for a very different (i.e. wholesome) countrified concert. Lambert, the first openly gay artist to top the Billboard Top 200 album chart at number one with Trespassing, took the stage with some serious disco diva swagger, tossing hits “Whataya Want From Me” and “If I Had You,” along with a brand new variety in “Never Close Our Eyes” and “Naked Love”. With poof’d gelled hair, limp wrist and a face plastered with makeup, Lambert vogued on the neon lit stage while wearing a stallion imprinted blazer, accompanied by a wailing guitarist with bright pink hair, a female bassist who challenged Lambert in the fashion department with Skrillex-style shaved hair. Of course our favorites in the band were two voluptuous black backup singers named “The Va Jay Jays”. I must say it was nice to see girls with shape and meat on their bones singing and dancing in the spotlight.
Yet he ends with praise…..
Although he does not have moves like Jagger, he exuded the sex-appeal of Prince and Michael Jackson during “Pop That Lock” which came with a “Smooth Criminal” outro. While observing the crowd, the bright colored shirts, teased hair and ripped fabric felt like a flashback to the early 90′s. “Naked Love” filled the missing void, as the crowd waved their hands back and forth to this Mariah Carey-esque bubble gum pop song.Bright blue and silver strobe lights helped bring the electro world of Lambert’s brand new lead single “Never Close Our Eyes” to life.
Though he left the stage without an encore, Lambert’s final song , “Cuckoo” allowed him to exit just the way he came out, with a ball of energy and glittery, electrified funk that beckoned the crowd to “party ’till they take us away.”
