Oh, my God, it’s happening.
Bieber Fever is sweeping the nation again, but this time, it means something else. Something pelvic. Quick, somebody get this kid more cowbell.
Oh god. The only thing I can think of that would be worse is if they made a SHEER version of these.
Ssshhhh! You’re going to give them IDEAS!
That occured to me! I almost didn’t type it because I was afraid someone would say, “Hey, now THERE’s a thought…” and three weeks later Justin Beiber would show up in them and I’d have to blind myself.
Well, now I’ve gone to a scary visual place without even actually seeing them.
Adam Lambert, wearing the uniform of the Dweeber Ninja Paratroopers
He looks like an evil genie.
I was JUST going to write that he looks like Jafar! Hahaha!
I was going to go with evil magician but genie is much, much better.
It’s Jafar: The College Years.
I thought he looked like Captain Hook from Once Upon a Time.
Exactly, I was going to comment that something about this screams pirate to me and that is what it is, SOOO Captain Hook!
I think he looks like one of the villains from the original Superman. You know, the ones that get trapped in the giant floating mirror.
What’s going on with the people behind him. Where IS this?
That’s what I was wondering too. Between the insane pantaloons directly behind him and the guy with a Arafat-esque headscarf, what kind of shenanigans are going on here?
My thought exactly. What event is this?? Can we get a close-up of the guy on the right wearing Dr. Horrible’s lab coat with my favorite leggings from seventh grade? And an explanation?
Also, dig the massive guyliner and drawn-on facial hair on the gentleman in the middle distance wearing the red turban. Who is he? He seems awesome.
I love “somebody get this kid more cowbell”!! Snort.
I think this may be the same event where Barbara Eden put on the genie costume again (still rockin’ it at 75/6!) so the pants may be part of a costume theme.
Yeah, I’m thinking this party had a costume theme.
I’m not exactly sure what that theme might have been, but look at how the guys behind him are dressed. The one guy has on some kind of stripey pantaloons with adorned boots, and a do-rag fashioned into a turban. And the other guy is also in do-rag turban mode with shiny fuchsia leggings.
Oh, please let it be a theme party…
It was the Vienna Lifeball, and he changed clothes to perform, so I don’t think this was intended as costume.
For how baggy and flowy these pants are, they sure put his… “cowbell” on prominent display.
Yikes! I didn’t notice that at first, but… yeah.
Yikes is right! Now that you’ve pointed that out, it’s all I can see, unfortunately. He’s really, um, happy to be there?
I was going to say that!
Yes, I noticed that. I bet he’s very popular with the boys.
Oh, Adam, Adam, Adam. No one with your crazy-amazing talent needs to dress like this for attention.
Wait, let me clean up the phrasing there:
NO ONE NEEDS TO DRESS LIKE THIS.
This is at the Vienna Life Ball… The theme was 1,001 nights…
1,001 Nights of Oh. Hell. NO!!
MC Hammer wants his pants back. Now.
THANK YOU. I was about to say Bieber did not invent this, he just ruined it. At least MC Hammer looked cool.
Well, “cool” relative to the looks of the time. Late 80s/Early 90s was not kind to fashion.
When did Adam Lambert turn into Dave Navarro facially? I think it’s the eyebrows.
That does look like the same way Dave has them done. Maybe they see the same waxer?
I like Adam’s makeup here, though, he’s toning it down some (which I couldn’t say for Navarro, who is still apparently melting Crayola Black around his eyes).
However, not sure he can really pull off the forehead sequin, theme or no theme. It kinda looks like a zit that he couldn’t help picking at.
I really thought this was Dave Navarro at first. Adjacent to Carmen Electra in some type of fug reunion.
Is he still known? The look of militant self regard says he certainly thinks so.
Oh yes. His career’s going well and, though critical reviews are somewhat mixed (they mostly love him but some really hate him), he’s extremely well-respected among other musicians, among them Brian May and Roger Taylor, who certainly know a good thing when they hear it. Lambert may be somewhat “bigger” in some other nations than in his native U.S., but his last album did debut at #1 on Billboard.
As Colbert quipped, it looks like he just took as big drink from a refreshing glass of hair.
Why does he look like a Dothraki with bad pants? Daenerys would not approve.
why would she care, doesn’t she have more important things to worry about, like freeing slaves, raising her three dragon children, having candy cotton hair etc…?
It’s a costumed Ball for an Aids charity, idiots!
Geez, why are Lambert fans always so hostile and on the defensive? It’s bizarre.
I’m a Lambert fan, and I don’t get it either. He looks terrible here.
Bad Fashion: Happens Even to People You Like Sometimes.
This was at Life Ball a charity for Aids and the theme was Ali Baba and the 40 thieves. Everyone was in costume….I thought it was a great outfit for that reason.
Shouldn’t he be tired of those finger gloves by now?
I don’t think he needs more, uh, cowbell. *fans self*
Nobody saw Zorro, the gay blade? I am getting old.
I know that film (I love that film), but I’m getting evil Genie and he’s working it. This is the best possible version of those pants possible because Adam has style and the charisma to pull it off.
Costume or not, I’ve seen him look equally ridiculous when he most certainly was not at a fancy dress event. He does have a good voice, though.
