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.'"

Adam you see what they said about your comment about Susan Boyle, HER HIT SONG! Hit is something you have never had! Don't hide behind the fact that you are gay to try to make yourself look important. Instead of being thankful that you were given the chance to make a career you can be proud of you are only making yourself look shallow and a jealous little girl. You could only hope to have the success that she will most definitely have. Take a hint from Amy Winehouse, you can fall as fast as you got to the top. Don't make the mistake of making unnecessary nasty comments for publicity because it may turn around and make you fodder for hurtful comments that you won't be able to handle. You are too new in your status to be insulting other singers as you have done nothing out of the ordinary. Remember the higher you are the harder you can fall. Fame can be fleeting. If you have nothing nice to say don't say nothing at all. With the little talent you do possess you have no room to critique others who surpass you without breaking a sweat.

This is most likely BS. Produce the interview where he said this stuff. It came from a site that is anti-Lambert

I know who Susan Boyle is, and she is magnificent. Who the heck is Adam Lambert, and why does he think anyone cares about his opinon? Sounds like pure jealousy and sour grapes. Susan's debut album has sold almost 10 million copies worldwide - it is hauntingly beautiful. That's the global opinion, and that's what counts.

Adam Lambert is a typical egomaniac, self serving piece of crap that wont last long term. Some never cirticizes Susan or anyone. Who are you? A freak, weirdo, who prides himself on basking in self glory to the point of looking like a freak from some halloween show every time you are seen. You may have won AI but not for long. time will tell - people dont put up with that kind of rudeness and self glorification for long - it is boring to say the least and you dont serve the world in any form or shape. Grotesque

he's just jealous thats all, his album sales didn't sale as much as susan boyle's thats all. its so obvious. i'm suprised, i thought adam lambert didn't care about ticket sales or even album sales, especially after the amas, which was horrendous. he obviously didn't care when he didn't win american idol, so why should he care now, if he doesn't make ticket sales. he f**ked up the amas, so why should he care if he sales any albums. he's just mad cuz he felt he had to prove himself after the amas.

For a fact this stuff is most likely wrong as Adam said on his twitter "Oh joy! MisQuoted again... Becoming quite funny actually."And to those whom are judging Adam and disrespecting him and dissing him, that is just immature behavior, he hasn't done anything personally to you nor anyone you know has he ? So you can do or say much as he hasnt done anything to offend you
