… with some Crystal Bowersox and Adam Lambert thrown in for good measure.
First. I have to share this. A video of an actual Crystal Bowersox Frau fan losing it when Lee Dewyse (who?? Who who you say??) won American Idol in 2010. I didn’t even know she had tards! Sorry to see she also picked up crazy middle aged fans overinvested because I actually dig her music. It is the only Idol CD I bothered to download but I loves me some Blues and Crystal can sing ’em.
Crystal Frau Freaks Out
So now the tickets and meet and greet tickets have been purchased for the upcoming Gavin Degraw slash David Cook tour. I heard that many blew ten bucks on buying memberships to Gavin’s website in order to try and get a jump on ticket sales only to wind up with really crummy seats and free access to presales at David Cook Official. C’est la vie. More karma for wacked out over involved fan behavior.
But the Cook crazy fan antics that amused me the most this week besides watching the Front Row Crew buy tickets and M & G packages for all the shows is the drama surrounding one of the hardcore pack, Debra. She’s apparently bought tickets, M&Gs, hotel rooms, airline tickets for most if not all of the venues and now she’s being picked apart on many boards and sites for greedily hogging access to the newly haired one, David Cook. Now, she’s crying that everyone saying that this is over the top unhealthy behavior are just all ‘nasties’ To quote Jen, if she really feels like what she’s doing is making her feel shame then perhaps she shouldn’t be doing it in the first place. Selling those extras might be the way to go.
Curiously some of the ‘weeds’ in fandom, like Wehoscott and Ladynsearch are suspiciously absent from the hoopla surrounding the new tour and the rest of the pack are doing their daily complaining about how RCA management is screwing everything up, or that there are no tour dates on the East Coast, that some M&G packages are already gone or the phases of the moon, the price of tea in China, you name it. This is one group of crazy that will never been satisfied, even if Cook came personally to each of their homes, romanced them all, put on a personal l-o-n-g concert and signed everything in their home from autos to cookware. They’d still find something to moan about.
Might be worth a road trip to York Pennsylvania to see the crowd in action. Will have to consider it.
Also, looks like Adam Lambert is starting to get the media attention because of his upcoming CD release. He will be on Lifetime’s “Project Runway” as a guest judge this week. Should be good for a few laughs. His fans have been quiet lately, not much amusing silly behavior to laugh at. Can someone enlighten me about his ‘new direction’? Didn’t he say something recently about ‘Glam’ being dead and he was headed in a new direction? What does that mean exactly because on the PR previews he’s got the old gel spiked ‘glam’ look going on still. I hope it means he’ll do something extremely bizarre, like Elizabethian ruffs and wigs or something equally old and outlandish just to see how the Sparkle Cows will try to replicate that look for themselves. Glammed up was funny enough.
I leave you with this… I wish this dude would audition for “American Idol” It would be enough to lure me into watching… maybe…his bouncing man boobs are hypnotic.
