One more post about him... and I promise I'll stop!!!

For the FEW Adam Lambert fans that read my blog, I had to share a hilarious Newsweek article I just saw on the internet about him.

First question I will ask:

What does Adam Lambert and a Cougar have in common?

According to the article, a Cougar refers to busy, professional women, some with demanding families and children, all with demanding jobs who are over the age of 40 (if not more).

The Cougars apparently are HOT for Adam Lambert, gay or not!

Here are a few excerpts from the article, I found entertaining...

In terms of biology, Adam Lambert's attractiveness is kind of bizarre. Some research shows that women like square jaws and deep brows—iconic masculine traits—when they're looking for a fling. But we like more feminine traits when we're looking for The One, the long-term mate. Lambert has a little bit of both going on for him, as anyone who saw his version of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" can attest.

When we aren't laughing at our patheticness (because, let's get real, even if Lambert were straight or gave in to some bi-curiosity, he would never be interested in us), we are actually ruminative enough to wonder what it is about this fellow that turned us into such loons. One thing we know for sure is that we are not alone. There are thousands of women of a certain age out there who are just one Adam Lambert Google search away from crashing their computers.

The good news is that people who know about these things think that our little Lambert love-fest is downright mentally healthy. "I think more women would be happier if they channeled their inner 14-year-old girls once in a while," says sex therapist Laura Berman, director of the Berman Center in Chicago. She's always been fascinated with the Clay Aiken phenomenon, that of girls going crazy for a seemingly sweet, innocent-looking boy-man (Aiken is now, like Lambert, out and proud).

While Aiken may be the ultimate "safe zone," Lambert, she believes, somehow managed to be "hardcore, crazy, humble, adorable, charismatic, sweet and mind-blowingly talented," all in one package. "He's a study in contrasts, and the gay thing doesn't matter," she says. "Anyone who can get women to talk, giggle and get their mojo back is fine by me. Enjoy the ride."

Part of the Lambert allure is that some women find his onstage lack of inhibition a powerful aphrodisiac. (What? Did they really just say that!?!) According to psychoanalyst Dr. Gail Saltz, we all have a little touch of the voyeur inside of us, but it's often repressed. Then along comes Lambert, and those voyeuristic floodgates open. "Here's a guy who is a maximum exhibitionist, molten hot, can sing anything and is screaming, 'Look at me,' and for some women, that's an incredible turn-on," says Saltz, author of The Ripple Effect: How Better Sex Can Lead to a Better Life.

Love him or hate him, he has sure made many headlines this year! I thought that someone else might find this article amusing to some degree. If you want to read the whole thing, you can find it at:

Haha. I haven't read your blog in awhile. Things have been pretty crazy.

2 things I wanted to say:

First, I know Adam Lambert pretty well. I went to high school with him, and was in choir with him and stuff. It's been pretty funny to watch all this.

Second, I'm moving to Tucson. I take it you guys aren't in AZ anymore, and that's a bummer. If you're ever there anymore, let me know!
