First of all it doesn't matter either way.. I like Adam for his talent, SINGING! The boy can belt out a tune like no other! It would be exremely sad if people didn't vote for him b/c of his sexuality. BTW yes, he is.. sorry ladies, I know I think he's georgeous too!
I would really love to know where you are getting this "statistic". To say that he will lose 97% of the votes, he would have otherwise gotten had it not come out that he is gay, is ridiculous.
You gotta give Adam Lambert's fanbase and American Idol fans in general more credit than that. Believe it or not, AI fans (for the most part) tend to vote for those who are the most talented, have the most stage presence and charisma. All of which Adam has. In many ways, he is truly in a different league than the other contestants this season. Fans do and will recognize that, when it comes down to the final three and even the finale (which I am sure he will be a part of in the final two). And in the end their votes will reflect that.
No i do not think that it is fair. He WILL lose well i might say about maybe 5% to 10% of his voters. I don't even like him, but i still think that no one should lose their shot at something like this because of their sexuality.
wow is it really that much?? who cares if hes gay!! hes no differant then anyone else!! and also, 48 percent of the world is made up of gay people. theres nothing wrong with being gay. Adam should have as many chances as anyone else.
Yes, they have no right to do that, he is his own person and that is all that matters... Why does that have to do with anything, you need to look good and have a great voice and ADAM has all of that... and more they just don't want to see that. There are rto many judgemental people out there and that pisses me off the most... I love you adam no matter what you are. You could me a monkey and have a great voice and i will still love you.
I really don't think he will lose many voters, I don't care for him really but many people do, so I think he'll be fine. As far as it being fair no it is not and I don't even agree with that kind of lifestyle at all. But hey life is not fair.
The type of people who would not vote for someone because they were gay would already be put off by Adam's style before even knowing he was gay. I think that the people that already vote for him are not going to stop because of his sexuality.
I've heard of the pics... give the dude a brake hes Emo Emos need to find their callin SINGINGS HES! Now heres a Gay girly boy from last year,the guy with that RETARDED SCARF! My dad from the 50s vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
If he would have lost 97 % he wouldnt even had made it that far.Think most of the americans are more openminded that you think,good for them!USA has a black president and may be an open-gay-Idol!Humanity has a chance!!!And at least the most talented performer should win and thats without doubts Adam.He brings the whole package.He even is an exellent dancer!!!He ll put together an amazing show!!
I think he will.
and yes, it is NOT fair.
but who can change that ? only time.
He will loose votes bc he's gay. As much as I hate to think that way, he will. Why ? Bc america has shallow, close-minded ppl [just like ne where else] and the homophobes will not overlook Adam's sexuality bc hes such a godamn great singer [and yes he is!]
But for the ppl who are not homophobes, they'll prob look at Adam differently (like wen ppl saw Neil Patrick Harris differently after he came out) but afte they hear Adam sing, they won't care what he is ... beause wen they call, they're not calling to "YEA, ADAM IS GAY!" they're calling to support him and make him the american idol.
