Lambert: 'Boyle's Hit Is Horrendous'
ADAM LAMBERT has slammed SUSAN BOYLE's debut single, insisting her cover of the ROLLING STONES' hit WILD HORSES made him "cry with laughter".
The Scottish sensation's album I Dreamed A Dream kept the American Idol runner-up off the top of the U.S. charts after he released For Your Entertainment in November (09).
Lambert sold an impressive 200,000 copies in his first week - but he couldn't believe he was toppled by Boyle's "terrible" album.
He tells Britain's Gay Times, "If only it weren't for Susan Boyle! I'm happy for her success, but that album is terrible. Wild Horses is the one that made me laugh the hardest. I just died when I heard it, I was crying with laughter. It was the most horrendous, sacrilegious treatment of that song!
"Still, when my album charted, it was validating. I was feeling bit attacked, like I had to vindicate something. I thought: 'Wow, look what I did.'"
