Ok, so we don't have TV right now, right? So, since Joe and I are American Idol fans, we decided to do like any self-respecting 'young person' of today would do and search youtube for the songs from Tuesday. After some searching, we found them and life is good, right? Not quite-
As we were listening I made the mistake of taking a look at some of the comments (note to self, never read youtube comments!) Anyway, I was ... disappointed and truly upset to see so much hate towards Adam. Of course, there was lots of praise as well, but seriously?
You know, even if you REALLY dislike his voice, style, even look... fine - go ahead and say that. "I think he's pitchy (dog)" "Mmm.. falsetto really isn't my style" "His clothes are kind of wack" - Fine - you have a right to your opinions - we all do and if you feel you must share then, fine. But to attack him or anyone Personally, and especially in a public form, just isn't ok.
We all do it - the basketball player we think is a jerk, the movie star we think is a tramp... but just because we all do it, does that mean its ok?
You know, I don't know Adam personally - I don't know what he does when the AI cameras aren't on him and I don't know what kind of life he lead before, Nor Do I Really Care... I Do, however, know that he is a child of a loving God. I also know that as far as I can tell, he seems like a respectful and kind person-a humble guy with an Enormous amount of talent and I don't feel he deserves to be bashed simply because some people feel insecure about the fact he can hit a high B flat and at times wears Jonny Dep eyeliner to help fill his roll as 'rocker'. He is still a Person and that title alone means he deserves respect.
At least, that's what I think...
