Adam Lambert Elaborates on Les Miserables Critique
Adam Lambert really wants to make sure you understand his problem with Les Miserables.
After the ex-American Idol contestant slammed the “distracting” singing & the actors who didn’t sing very well, Russell Crowe came out & actually echoed a few of Lambert’s complaints.
But Adam isn’t done with the film.
“My movie review has gone viral,” Lambert Tweeted today. “U can spend a whole year praising artists for inspiring work, yet one critique gets all the attention. Funny.”
The singer then went on to specify his issues with the huge screen adaption:
“Those raw & real moments when characters broke down or were expressing the ugliness of the human condition were superb. However… My personal opinion: there were times when the vocals weren’t able to convey the power, beauty & grace that the score ALSO calls for.
“I guess I’m a purist for the original LIVE broadway recording when the actors sang the f–k outta those songs. JUST an opinion… I should prob stop fanning the flames on this one…but I love a satisfactory debate- couldn’t assist myself.”
And, finally, Lambert wants it known: he adored Anne Hathaway in her role & says the actress deserves an Oscar.
Okay then. Are we done now? Have you seen Les Miserables? What grade would you donate this version of the musical?
