One thing about Adam Lambert is that he speaks his mind. I don't think he has a self-censor button. Great for gossip, not so great for making lots of friends. In an interview with Gay Times he said that he was disappointed he didn't get the number one album which he lost out on when Susan Boyle's album was released the same week. He said he would have been okay with that if the album was any good. Unfortunately he thought it sucked.
"If only it weren't for Susan Boyle! I'm happy for her success, but that album is terrible. 'Wild Horses' is the one that made me laugh the hardest. I just died when I heard it, I was crying with laughter. It was the most horrendous, sacrilegious treatment of that song!"
As of today, Susan's album has sold about 8M copies worldwide while Adam Lambert has sold about 519,000 copies of his debut album.
