What an offensive comment to make. Adam has worked for years on his vocals, as all professional singers have to. To say some closeted prick like Tom Cruise can just ‘learn to sing like a rock star’ in 4 months is not just wrong, it is bullshit. First, this crap from the closet wankers vocal coach….
On the day of Mr. Cruise’s first voice lesson with Ron Anderson, a well-known voice coach who has worked with rockers like Axl Rose, the director nervously eavesdropped from behind a closed door at the actor’s house as he ran through some singing exercises. Mr. Cruise could carry a tune—but he needed to improve his range. On top of a rigorous fitness and dance regimen, he began training with Mr. Anderson, who uses the 300-year-old “bel canto technique,” five to seven hours a day.
“He did what would normally take two years to do in 4½ months,” says Mr. Anderson, noting that he more than doubled his range, to more than four octaves. (The average person has a two-octave range; Axl Rose’s has been closer to five.) “His concentration is beyond anything I have ever seen before.”
And now the ridiculous vocal comparison between Cruise and Adam Lambert………
Did you know Tom Cruise could sing before he signed on to do the movie?
We didn’t know if he could sing the way I needed him to sing. But he was so excited. … He had a couple of sessions with a vocal coach. I was there, and he was unbelievable. He kept increasing his range.
That ’80s rock is not easy for a guy to sing …
Nobody really sings like that anymore, other than Adam Lambert. Their voices were so high, and they were just screaming. (Cruise) had to really work on that.
Here is Cruise with alot of auto-tune…..
And here is Adam doing what a real rock star does………
If Cruise does have a 4 octave range, I challenge him to sing the Queen Of The Night aria.
Ha, the body looks 20 years younger than his. Because it is! Funny photoshop.
COOL NEWS. AND HE IS HOT. AND A GOOD ACTOR. FROM THE ADVOCATE…….
The Advocate: What led you to come out?
Douglas Spain: Honestly, I was a bit depressed at the beginning of the year, and I couldn’t pinpoint why. Then I realized I had gotten to a point where I only wanted to play pretend in front of the camera and not behind it.
Most of your friends and family knew?
Yes. Technically I came out when I was 17. And when I became an actor I went right back in in order to protect my career.
Did anyone in your professional circle advise you to stay in the closet?
Yeah. And I’ve been in the business a long time, so I’ve seen careers fail [because of it]. Neil Patrick Harris is the exception. I’ve been in situations in people’s homes — people who didn’t know I was gay — and Anne Heche would come on the television and they would make comments like, “I don’t believe her as a straight love interest.” As an actor I always felt that the less people know about you, the more believable your characters can be. There are many actors that are chameleons, and I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we don’t know much about their personal lives. Gary Oldman is a great example. Michael Fassbender, who is a friend and someone I’ve worked with, is another. He’s able to become all these characters because people don’t know much about him.

“Tom kaun? (Ed note. That is a perfect name for him if you think about it) I don’t know who he is or what he does. We were told to come here by 1pm today and wait for a foreign VIP to come out of the airport gate and scream and shout when he came. None of us know who Tom is. There was a buffet lunch also for us and we were paid Rs 150 for this job today. We do this for television shows and other such events where crowds are required.”
