Fug World

I can’t believe none of you emailed to tell us that, at some point over the last six months, Adam Lambert here fell under the thrall of the Dark Lord and is now acting as his (extremely UNSUBTLE) emissary on earth. I mean, when he comes up to me at the Whole Foods at some point this summer and offers to trade me a particularly lovely clutch of organic radishes for my eternal soul or whatever, I’d be likely to turn him down ANYWAY, but a heads-up would have been nice.

    Are you sure that this is not a wax statue?

  2. Janine

    Oh my…

  3. Christian

    I actually gasped when I saw this. I have to say, that is some truly IMPRESSIVE fug. I’ve liked Adam Lambert ever since I read he drunkenly crashed Lady Gaga’s birthday party.

  4. Lisa

    He actually looks like one of those posters that someone has taken a Sharpie to and created funky eyes and facial hair. It’s too spooky that his look is intentional!

  5. Anne B

    Emily The Strange and Prince had a kid. This is the result.

  6. Sajorina

    That looks like a cardboard cutout of Adam that someone drew all over! FUG!!!!!!

  7. shebrihart

    Oh sweet Jesus

    Is it just me, or does he kinda look like David Blaine here?

  8. AndersonicTK421

    @Anne B – I like where you’re going with this, but I have to say that I rather imagine this is what Dave Navarro would look like if he had never met the punk-influence of Perry Farrell…

  9. Jessica

    DAVE NAVARRO! Thank you. I knew he reminded me of someone when I was writing this and it was right on the tip of my tongue and THAT’S IT.

  10. llism

    I’m thinking Snidely Whiplash.

  11. MzStilletto

    Sweet zombie jesus this one scared me…!

    At first I thought it was just a poorly photoshopped image to try to make him look all EVIL and stuff, but sadly – this is real, isn’t it? I think I need a drink!

  12. Ranee Singleton

    …. and I am thinking The Hamburglar.

  13. CJ

    I was thinking Disney villain…Jafar?

  14. Katty McNiley Ripley

    Finally a human size “Gothic Pimp Ken” doll…

  15. mstiegirl

    Sorry, I was distracted by what I thought was ASSCAP written behind him.

    (Yes, that is ridiculous facial hair.)

  16. Ranee Singleton

    …….perhaps Lucifer’s make up artist?

  17. Emi!y

    That’s not Adam Lambert! That’s his evil twin, Shadam Slambert! duhn-duhn-DUUUUUUHN!

  18. tmdavis

    Definitely Dave Navarro. I will do a looks just like on the cheeseburger network now! Yay!

  19. Svahnna

    And to think the man is actually blond! He really works this black hair thing in a big old way!

  20. cprangz

    oh hey Criss Angel

  21. LoriK

    Dave Navarro was my first thought too. It looks like Adam needed a last minute idea for a Halloween party and decided to use a Sharpie in a desperate, and largely unsuccessful, attempt to create a Navarro costume. Either that or he’s what happened when Dave and Madame Tussauds hooked up.

    Either way, not good.

  22. Cookie

    Hilarious…wow…so very bad

  23. Amy

    Snidely Whiplash was also my first thought! Holy black crows—he has turned into a total caricature. Looks like he’s been taking hair care lessons from Pauly D.

  24. Anne B


    Oh sweet fumey gimme-the-munchies flashbacks YES.

  25. Pepe

    Adam Lambert’s evil twin, obviously

  26. Louise

    At first glance, I thought you guys had photo-shopped his face with magic marker.

  27. foo


    He just reminded me I need to re-read Robert Olen Butler’s “Hell.” (Which is a very good book, but still.)

  28. Knafre

    …He looks like a Playmoman.

  29. rigmarole

    Wow, and I thought the man was unsexy before. Unbelievable.

  30. vandalfan

    It’s the Lord of Misrule.

  31. witjunkie

    That creepy Burger King’s son? The Whopper Prince?

  32. Chris

    I know consensus has settled on this being Dave Navarro, but…I dunno…I’m almost thinking more Prince for some reason

    More to the point, I initially thought, “Wasn’t there a Freaky Fug Friday with Prince wearing this outfit?” I was wrong – it was Lenny Kravitz dressing sort of…Prince-ly. I don’t know how I feel about a world where I confuse Prince and Lenny Kravitz.

    I do know, however, that – while I adore Adam and his glittery glory – he can compare to neither of them. (At least, not yet.)

  33. marija

    If Adam Lambert will ever show up in Germany like that, he won’t be confused with Dave Navarro, but rather german designer Rudolph Moshammer:

  34. M.

    Marija: Confused yes, but probably more creeped out, since poor Moshammer was murdered in 2005. Maybe he is channeling his ghost?

  35. Angela Brown

    “Playmoman”? Is that a Playmobil man? If so, then YES. I have a prince right here and with his black hair, plastic skin and mustache, looks EXACTLY like this guy.

  36. Tom

    Ew – Dave Navarro?!

  37. Lauren

    I lovelovelove Adam and his music, and generally find him extremely attractive….
    But why did he have to go all V for Vendetta on us?! If he starts leaving red roses in his wake, we should all be very worried.

  38. Infoqueen

    I thought “Sharpie,” too! All he needs are horns and little round glasses!!

  39. Allison

    I must disagree with all the Dave Navarro and Prince comparisons…. as soon as I saw this I was reminded of the season where America’s Next Top Model contestants had to dress up and pose as famous designers. This is John Galliano (with shorter hair) all the way.

  40. Lina

    He used to be vaguely cute, but now he looks like a comic book caricature. (Also, Dave Navarro is way better looking.) At least he doesn’t look like Elvis anymore, but this is not better. I’d love to see him ditch the enhancements and go back to being a natural strawberry-blond with freckles.

  41. Patricia

    Is he wearing thigh-high boots?!

  42. Bambi Anne Dear

    Good (Dark) Lord!!

  43. Kendrily

    Wow, he went through a lot of (undoubtedly expensive) eyebrow pencils just to look like a doodle of the love child of David Blaine and Guy Fawkes.

  44. Maretha2

    Watch out, Ryan Cabrera! Adam Lambert has seen your giant vertical hair and just raised you a Sharpie-esque Goatee and Eyebrows! Excellent move to land a spot in next year’s Fug Madness. I say well-played, Dark Lord Lambert.

  45. lc

    So I know he dyes his hair, but his goatee and mustache too? Holy upkeep Batman!

  46. Valeria

    EEEeeekk! My initial reaction was, “that’s got to be someone wearing a mask — complete with plastic hair”.

  47. Hannahkin

    Ahh, that’s the name I was searching for – Ryan Cabrera. That’s who I initially thought this was based on the hair alone, as I’ve never heard of either of those dudes in my little corner of Australia and couldn’t pick them out of a lineup. Either way, Sweet. Holy. Moses.

  48. Karin

    Actually, I’m always kind of pleased to see more men experimenting with really questionable style choices that to not run in the direction of manpris, socks in birkenstocks, Ryan Cabrera hair and general slobbiness. It’s fug, sure, but it’s flamboyant fug! On a man! I love the over-the-top crazy of Daniel Day-Lewis too, by the way.

    You may now go ahead and call me crazy.

  49. fritanga

    This look is Faith-era George Michael mixed with a HUGE dose of Dave Navarro. Also, this guy:


  50. Carolina Girl

    The Screen Actors Guild does not allow two actors to use the same name (think Vanessa Williams/Vanessa L. Williams). Too bad there isn’t some organization that does the same for looks.
    Adam better be real glad Dave Navarro isn’t from the ‘hood. You could get dealt with for doing some shit like this.

  51. berryberrykix

    So, one of the bad guys from Superman 2 had a kid with the lady bad guy from Superman 2 and now he’s all grown up?

  52. Gretchen

    Yeah, we’ve already suffered through at least three or four different iterations of the bloody thing XD

  53. Lissy

    LOL this is the dude who as tiny child would spend hours in front of the mirror with makeup and tissue paper trying his best to recreate the Michael Jackson Thriller vid zombies look on himself. And he’s so hilariously stubborn that the collective cry of “noooooooooo!” from his fans and the LOLtastic mocking from sites across the internet just means that he is totes keeping it for the forseeable future. Oh Adam.

    I do love that he’s in on the joke, though. Last night he tweeted pictures of his goatee muses LOL:

    http://yfrog.com/hs7cdfbj (my fave)

  54. teh_ace

    Still much better than the time he wore a leather poncho, clydesdale boots and missmatching extensions…

    Brb, emailing pic!

  55. Victoria

    Seriously? You would turn him down? Silly girl.

  56. Rachael

    He is so handsome. Have you seen the close up of this picture? I would sell my soul to spend a night with him. http://twitpic.com/4qeaq3/full

  57. lp

    Wellll … overshot “new look” and landed deep in “comical” territory.

  58. Joyce

    I LOVE him, but this is all getting a bit out of hand.

  59. Style Pit

    Where I come from, every skeezy drug dealer has this exact facial hair. But I may forgive him because of his hilarious “I am so NAUGHTY” facial expression. Oh, Mr. Lambert! You’re such a card.

  60. Tigger

    I agree with Lina @6:22pm – Dave Navarro is way better looking.

  61. Lily1214

    Truly scary.
