Adam Lambert Trashes “Les Mis”, Praises Anne Hathaway


“One more clarification: DO go see it for Anne Hathaways performance. It’s was breathtaking.”[HP]

Ever wonder what former American Idol contestants think of massively popular new movie musicals? We don’t either, but Adam Lambert took to Twitter yesterday to weigh in one what has kind of-sort of become a pop culture phenomenon (even for non-musical geeks like yours truly).

He said he was less than impressed by Tom Hopper’s Les Miserables because “the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers” and “…it’s an opera. Hollywoods movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority. (Dreamgirls was good)”. Uh huh.

He did, however, do what every other human on the planet has done and single out Anne Hathaway for her performance as the tragic prostitute Fantine. Maybe Lambert can croon in her lap after she wins the Oscar at the Vanity Fair party?
