Adam Lambert’s Idol Feast – Whole Lotta Love
“Because he is a pumpkin pie of a person” — Quotes about Adam from TWOP’s “Jacob”. Reposted by Gypsy Scribbles, These are so vivid and entertaining, they just called out to be combined with the performance videos for a multimedia journey back down this beloved memory lane.
The Idols themselves are wearing “rock” clothes. This means that Kris is dressed like Kris plus a leather jacket, Allison looks like Allison with tons more makeup like a little girl playing dress-up, Danny is dressed like a youth minister who is totally out of his depth which is what he is, and Adam looks like a gay pirate from a future gay pirate spaceship.
Adam will be singing “Whole Lotta Love,” which is perfectly awesome. Slash praises his effortless range and can’t think of much to say beyond cautioning him to improvise less in the high register, you know, like he does, and stay down and low and rock star-like. Adam tells us this is his favorite week, which is not surprising. I’m kind of amazed that he’ll be singing this song because it’s the scariest sex song of all time, and Adam is the scariest sex person. He goes Adam Crazy all over it for a bit, and sings about the learning and the schooling and the loving and the whatever, and screams all the time because this is the week for it.
Even though he’s totally doing a Zeppelinesque cover of a Tori Amos cover of a Zeppelin song, the ending is so totally amazing that everybody is overwhelmed and cries, and all the grownups are overjoyed because for once they’re acquainted with what he’s doing and it’s not like straight-up weirdness for them to do with what they will. I don’t know if it’s crazy enough to be amazing, because he really just gave up on reinterpreting songs a while back. Mostly, I’m just happy in 2009 to see a gay man sing about giving you every inch of his love without apologizing for it in the slightest. It gives me Obama type feelings.
