'American Idol's' Jon Peter Lewis: Adam Lambert? Artist schmartist
What is art? Adam Lambert's performance on the American Music Awards sure wasn't according to Jon Peter Lewis.
Jon Peter Who? Oh yeah, the Hobbit. We forgot too until we looked him up.
Lewis, an "American Idol" Season Three finalst who finished eighth and was praised for his vocals, is taking issue with many who defend Lambert's racy AMA perforamnce, calling it art.
"All this nonsense about Adam Lambert's whole project being art is bogus," he tells Us. "That idea is absurd. It's like calling Thomas Kinkade art. What a sham."
Um, well, some would definitely call Kinkade an artist, so what exactly are you saying, Jon Boy?
Other former "Idol" contestants are more supportive, including Season One's gay Jim Verraros and Season Five's Kevin Covais (aka Chicken Little).
"I see no reason why [Adam] should be punished by ABC," says Covais.
