Lambert Brushes Off Queen Rumours

AMERICAN IDOL loser ADAM LAMBERT has dismissed rumours he is set to front rock legends QUEEN.
The group's guitarist Brian May gave 2009 runner-up Lambert a boost by praising his abilities after performing with the singer on the finale of the U.S. TV talent show last month (May09).
But Lambert insists he has no plans to join the band full-time, as he wants to carve out a career in his own right.
Lambert says, "They’ve never actually offered me anything. They expressed interest in working together, but just said they’d like to have a meaningful conversation, and that’s it. It could have meant they wanted me to come to dinner with them, it could have meant they wanted to talk about the meaning of life.
"I don’t know if joining the band permanently is in the cards (sic) for me right now. They’re legends; I’m just the new kid on the block.”

Who the hell are you calling a looser? Certainly not Adam Lambert - he didn't get the title of American Idol but he is still a winner in millions of hearts. More like - Worldwide Idol.

How low to refer to Adam as American Idol "loser". Would not it have been more professional to refer to him as American Idol "runner up"?! Some reporters are either insensitive, or down right mean, or unintelligent or maybe all of the above! He is a winner, even though he didn't take the crown. Some reporters need to take some communications courses or something!

How unprofessional and rude. "AI loser"? Are you out of your mind? First of all, he didn't lose. He was the front-runner TILL THE END. You can refer to him as "AI runner-up' for the sake of a term. But he's not a loser, he's the actual winner if you see it as with the point of view that he's getting all the publicity and has the talent to prove himself.Just be careful in future what you place in writing or people will just take you as ignorant idiots like this article proves you to be.

*Pretty unprofressional I agree!* I don't see how Adam Lambert can be considered the loser of Idol. He was the only one that was already "A Star" when he got there. Even more of one now that it'S over. ** 19 IS THE TRUE WINNER! They are going to be cashing in big all over in sales. These men have sides of musical talent that are like night and day. Kris NEEEDED the Idol title to become famous. Lambert-already was famous and humble about it. *The media really should be a little more in tune. ya think!"

How could you refer to Adam Lambert, the most talented contestant ever to set foot on the AI stageas a loser? There are millions of fans world wide who have already purchased his singles and are eagerly awaiting more. The proper term is runner up.Industry veterans have called him a musical genius. He received a standing ovation from the judges and Smoky Robinson. The Queen Band loved him. Fellow contestants acknowledge his help and input. Stop being mean to him.

I had never seen American Idol before this season. Adam Lambert is the entire reason that I watched. And I am old enough to be his mother. I wish him all the best!

ummm...excuse me? ADAM LAMBERT. a LOSER??!!!! He is not! Just because he didn't win doesn't make him a loser. Who wrote this? Like you could sing as well as Adam could i mean adam is the best singer i have ever heard. BTW Adam was supposed to win but too many people are homophobes & care too much about looks and judge people when they don't even know them. Adam Lambert will be HUGE just wait.
