Idol‘s Alex Lambert, not Adam Lambert tweeted the other day that he’s been living on the streets, and sleeping behind buildings. He tweeted, “Alright so I didn’t want to bring my person life to my fans but I’m about to freak out if I don’t tell yall the truth! “Ever since IICD (If I Can Dream – Hulu reality series) ended I’ve been kinda homeless! Sleepin on the street and behind buildings.”
So initially, of course, I’m sure his fans were worried, or thinking WTF…but then his management put out a statement denying that Alex was homeless, and that he in fact gets money every month because he’s on a retainer. They said, “He’s on a retainer, and he’s getting money every month. He’s working on demos. He’s with writers, he’s working on music. He’s not homeless. How could he be texting? How could he be going into recording studio and sleeping on the streets? There’s no record deal yet, but hopefully these demos something could come from that.”
Then Mr. Lambert tweeted (in a series of tweets): “I’m a grown ass man. I’ve had so much help out here in LA! I just want to do things on my own! I have places to stay I just don’t want to be a burden on anyone! I have money! And soon I will have a place to stay! I just wanted to let y’all know! I’m not some rich spoiled kid! That I’ve had to hustle and grind and I don’t mind sleepin on the street as long as I get my chance! Because I will not take it for granted! I hope y’all understand. Sorry for the miscommunication. I’m just fine!”
Blah, Blah, Blah…we get it. You’re not homeless, you don’t want people to think that you’ve been handed everything. You feel bad crashing on couches. Anything else, ohhhh struggling artist? Who do you think you are? Jewel? It’s too bad you didn’t come out here in a van. That would have been a really good story too.
