Adam Lambert clears the air on 'Les Miserables' critique

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

American Idol alum Adam Lambert is floored that his critique of Tom Hooper’s, Les Miserables got so much attention that he felt the need to address his tweets once again for clarification.

“My movie review has gone viral. U can spend a whole year praising artists for inspiring work, but one critique gets all the attention. Funny,” he tweeted Wednesday.

Lambert blasted Hooper’s decision of not “sweetening” the sound, pointing out his distraction of the “actors PRETENDING to be singers.”

His tweets got so much attention that he eventually clarified noting his harshness, but not before Les Miserables actor Russell Crowe took to Twitter to respond to Lambert’s critique.

“I don't disagree with Adam, sure it could have been sweetened, Hooper wanted it raw and real,that's how it is,” he replied.

Thursday, the singer was changing is tune in light of all of the attention, writing, “Those raw and 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 and grace that the score ALSO calls for," he continued, reports MTV.

He again praised the performances of Anne Hathaway before opting to conclude his Les Mis rant. “One last thing though: Anne Hathaway was so good- had me tearing up. Oscar worthy performance for sure! Ok. #donediscussinglesmiz,” he concluded.
