This is Wacky Wednesday!!
My day is officially titled "Wacky Wednesday," so I figure that is permission to write about whatever the heck I want to write about. So today I choose American Idol. No, this is not the first time I've written about that wonderful show. You may recall a certain controversial post written several weeks back about Adam Lambert and charisma. I was a 100% devoted Adam fan until last week... Are you gasping in shock. I know, it's shocking. After all my proclaimed love for Adam Lambert, he just lost that spark for me. I'm now a Kris fan all the way!
So this change of heart has made me ponder and ponder (is it sad that a T.V. show could take up so much of my mental time?). Why the change? The judges still adore him. Other artists adore him. America obviously still loves him. Why don't I? Here are the possibilities I've come up with and as usual, it makes me think of my characters.
1. Repetition- Adam is very distinct in his stylistic elements (e.g. the sticking his tongue out while singing really high). At first it drew me too him, but after a while it got old.
2. Over dramatized- He's a great performer, but sometimes I feel like he's acting like a rock star instead of being one. It doesn't always seem genuine to me.
3. He peaked too early- He was too good too fast, so now it's hard for him to amaze me.
I'll leave it to you guys to see how this might apply or not apply to any of your characters. Feel free to leave you thoughts in the comments, but I really want to know is, who do you think is going to win?!! And why are they your favorite? It's okay to say Adam. :) I still think he's incredibly talented!
