I don’t think American Idol is becoming too filthy. I agree, that guest artist was awful. A few seasons ago they had Tony Bennett–wish they would bring him back! And Stevie Wonder was on a few weeks ago–amazing! And Smokey Robinson! And Carrie Underwood. And Randy Travis–one of the most decent guys in the country music world.
So I would say that the decent far outweighs the filthy.
Also, we have wonderful artists in the competition this season. Danny Gokey is a youth pastor! And Scott McIntire was such an inspiration. Michael Sarver is a great example for all of us to work hard and pursue our dreams. Lil Rounds is amazing–married!–with three children (unlike other Idols who have had children without a husband around!). All of the contestants have beautiful families.
I honestly like all of them (although I’m glad that Megan got voted off–she was stunningly beautiful and I think she could have a great career as a actress, but she really couldn’t sing at all).
But I’m partial to Adam. I love creativity, and he’s full of it! Every week, I can’t wait to see what he’s come up with, and so far, I haven’t been disappointed. We are planning to go see the Idol tour for the first time ever just to see him!
Great comments, Borealis. I agree with you–Adam Lambert seems like a delightful person. Respectful is a good word for him. I agree that he would be a good role model for kids, at least when it comes to showing respect for those in authority.
If you want to avoid watching gay people in the media, then you’d better turn it all off. I have friends in the entertainment industry, and they claim that at least 50% of the entertainers (actors, singers, musicians, dancers, production, etc.) are gay.
That means that at least half the people on ANY TV show or play or movie are probably gay. So best to turn it all off if gayness offends you.
My feeling is, their sexual orientation does not affect their art. If someone is talented, they’re talented. The show is a singing competition, not a competition for sainthood. (That’s what life is.)
And being gay is not a sin–gay sexual acts are the sin. And whether they commit sexual sin is none of my business-they will answer to GOD for their sin. If they flaunt it openly, that’s offensive to me. But so far, Adam Lambert has not flaunted his sexual orientation at all.
Question: is it a fact that he is gay, or is he just being pictured in the gay publications because he is so very “handsome?” Currently a figure skater named Johnny Weir is all over the gay publications, but he has never publicly come out. He is very appealing-looking and it is understandable that gay and straight people admire his good looks and interesting personality. But no one knows for sure whether he is gay, or whether he is just attractive to gay men.
Has the same thing happened to Adam Lambert, or has he actually come out? Thanks.
