Hollywood California - Simon Cowell wants the United States to crown American Idol screamer Adam Lambert Queen of America.
Surly Simon Cowell bantered about the idea of crowning popular singer of American Idol Adam Lambert as Queen of America on his Friday appearance on the talk show San Bernardino Tonight.
Co-host of San Bernardino Tonight, Donna Aladead, interrupted Simon and said "You mean you want Adam Lambert to be crowned winner of American Idol?" which Simon Cowell replied "No, I want Adam Lambert to be crowned Queen of America". "My dream is to make Adam the Queen of America and it's an idea I have been pushing from the beginning of the show."
News outlets and the blogosphere has been a buzz all weekend with the strange request from Simon Cowell. It was learned that Cowell has written President Obama to coronate Adam Lambert Queen of America after the finals of American Idol on 5-20-09. Adam Lambert is guaranteed to win the title of American Idol against the other person whose name people can't seem to remember.
All season long on American Idol Simon Cowell and the rest of the judges have been fawning excessively over Lambert from day one. The shows producers also have gone overboard to make sure Lambert wins the title with special lighting and giving him the last place performance more than any other contestant in Idol's previous history. Lambert is one of this seasons contestants with the most professional stage and theater experience to compete against unseasoned yokels on the biggest karaoke stage in the world. But that has not deterred the judges and producers of the show in over pimping and praising Adam Lambert. So it was inevitable that Lambert would beat out small town church singers, college students and people with less experience, but that has not stopped the producers and even bugged eyed over produced gimmicky singers like Katy Perry from picking Lambert over them.
Though Lambert has been overly praised and will probably win the American Idol title the idea of Adam being crowned royalty might not be to the liking of all Americans, also Simon kept referring Adam for the title of "Queen of America" instead of King or even Duke. Some gay groups have protested the choice of Simon's words because Adam Lambert is gay. It even surprised this gay reporter.
Later on this afternoon Simon Cowell said that what he meant is that he wanted Adam Lambert to be crowned "Drag Queen of America" for Adams apparent love of wearing women's clothing.
Donald Trump has weighed into this controversy. According to Perez Hilton's website Donald Trump wants Adam Lambert to replace Miss California's Carrie Prejean in the Miss USA competition.
