Anyone who knows me knows what this post really is. It’s a flimsy excuse to mention Adam Lambert, my favorite American Idol contestant ever; sorry Clay, Kelly, Daughtry, whomever. (Adam Lambert, I make such a good best-girlfriend-of-a-gay-dude* ever; seriously, call me. I have references.)
*Avoiding the potentially inflammatory terminology here!
Anyway I LOVE HIM, is my point, and I read his new interview in Rolling Stone eagerly, and found this tidbit:
â€œIâ€™ve finally checked in to my self-worth for the first time in my life, and the fact that it has coincided with â€˜Idolâ€™ is so sweet,â€ he says. â€œI mean, I still have moments where I think, â€˜Oh, my skin is terrible, and Iâ€™m a little fat, I should really go to the gym more.â€™ But for the most part, when I look in the mirror now, I finally see someone who can do something cool.â€
I’ve read things like this before, that Lambert has had self-esteem issues, that he’s had an eating disorder, that he’s self conscious about his weight and his freckles, and that he thinks he needs to lose fifteen pounds. Oh, Adam Lambert. Your insecurity makes you human, and thus even more perfect.
Also, while on the subject, I didn’t know Kara DioGuardi had publicly admitted a binge eating disorder. I admire that she’s spoken out about binge eating, and I do care. But she is not Adam Lambert, and therefore I only care briefly. Here is Adam again!
