Adam Lambert dissed fellow judge Iggy Azalea X Factor Australia
Following a lackluster show overnight Adam Lambert appeared on some media morning shows. What was suppose to be a promotional visits turns surprisingly honest. Adam Lambert dissed fellow judge Iggy Azalea X Factor Australia.
Cross promoting shows has been around a long time. Fifty years of television you can find many examples. Daily weekly time slots for informational news from actors and newsie people. Adam turns out to be the focus of this piece today.
On radio earlier today. “I’ve found some sort of common ground with Iggy, we get along, but I’ve watched her and observed her with other people and she’s tricky — she’s a complicated girl,” Adam revealed to 2DayFM’s Rove McManus and Sam Frost.
He went on to explain it leaves Azalea, 26, in a vulnerable position.
“I mean let’s face it, no one’s rapping on the show at this point, so it’s like ‘uhhhh what is she going to say?’” Lambert said.
“I think she’s embarrassed that she doesn’t know anything about singing — so maybe she’s just defensive … and Guy [Sebastian] and I are giving all this technical talk, so maybe she just feels threatened.”
At Nova FM he was chatting with hosts Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald and Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli.
“I see some of the shenanigans she pulls with other people and I’m like ‘Girl, pull it together!’ She’s such a diva,” he said.
Adding more details about contestants on the show.
“I’m like, ‘maybe the people you’re mentoring might be kind of important, just a thought … isn’t that why you’re here?’” he quipped sarcastically to the hosts.
He explained that off-air, members of her group had even asked him for help with their song choices.
“I don’t know if I should talk about it — but they came into my dressing room and were like ‘what should we do?’ so I just tried to help, off the record. Which I’m probably not supposed to do.”
“She’s [Iggy’s] a loose cannon, it’s hard to predict what she’s going to say, if she’s going to show up, if she’s going to listen.”
A few weeks ago fellow judges Guy Sebastian also dissed Azalea publicly.
“I don’t hate Iggy … we clash. I don’t know what she’s thinking a lot of the time,” Sebastian told Sunrise on October 19.
Sebastian appeared on Kyle and Jackie O the same morning and said Azalea had been rocking up to set two or three hours late.
“She’s just down the road in a nice hotel we’ve put her up in, just chilling and watching movies,” he said.
Lambert is the consummate judge and role model because he is a product of the system via American Idol. He has the track record and knows how these contestants feel from his own experiences on both sides of the table. Azalea is on a steep learning curve in this process. More X Factor tonight!
We await Iggy’s response. Maybe her remaining act will be eliminated tonight. Now that we are all talking about the show maybe the ratings might spike.
