Adam Lambert checked in with his Twitter followers (@adamlambert) earlier this evening, commenting on how In Touch had a photo spread suggesting Willow Smith was copying his style. That led the ‘American Idol’ alum into a discussion about the copying topic, mentioning Tokio Hotel singer Bill Kaulitz, who people accuse Adam of copying, and how Christina Aguilera and Lady Gaga were inspired by Madonna, who in turn was inspired by Marilyn Monroe and others. He writes:
Willow’s a little badass lady but I don’t think we have much in common! Lol. C’mon InTouch! This is a stretch… :)
Didn’t you hear? I’m copying Bill Kaulitz. So… In a round about way, so is she. Right? And he’s copying Rihanna.
In truth ladies and gentlemen… No one is copying anyone. Following trends is a stylist’s job and part of ours is to appear fashionable. Leave the copy cat bull to the school playground.
For example: the Xtina/Gaga Conspiracy? Lets look just look at Madonna. Seems they were BOTH inspired by her. And she borrowed a page from Marilyn. (amongst others) it’s the Post Modern age – everything’s been done. Pop stars acknowledging something and editorializing on it is an art.
K I’m done ranting. Lol
And to clarify before any media takes my rant out of context: I am a fan of all the artists I just mentioned! I love you Madonna, Marilyn, Gaga, XTina, Rihanna, Bill, and little Willow (for inspiring this rant and inTouch to begin with) btw girl- you fierce. :)
*also anyone that took me too seriously just now needs to…. NOT!
