Adam Lambert made headlines when he criticized the vocal performances of the cast of Les Miserables, but he’s now commenting on it again.
Lambert slammed the vocal performances of Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and more when he said the “score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers.”
Those statements and more went viral, even prompting a response from Crowe.
Crowe responded to a Twitter user who said, “Not sure if you saw @adamlambert's comments about Les Miserables. He was pretty opinionated.”
He responded “I don't disagree with Adam,sure it could have been sweetened,Hooper wanted it raw and real,that's how it is.”
But now Lambert is taking to Twitter again to break it down.
"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. "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 added “I guess I'm a purist for the original LIVE broadway recording when the actors sang the f*ck outta those songs. JUST an opinion... should prob stop fanning the flames on this one..but i love a good debate- couldnt help myself.”
The former American Idol contestant concluded “One last thing though: Anne Hathaway was so good- had me tearing up. Oscar worthy performance for sure! Ok. #donediscussinglesmiz.”
