Adam Lambert, LeAnn Rimes Flick Off Bullies
By Drew Poulsen, New York | June 04, 2013 2:30 PM EDT
Today, images of LeAnn Rimes and Adam Lambert giving cameras the middle finger began circulating around the internet in support of an anti-bullying campaign that embraces a new "F" word -- friendship.
Originating in Los Angeles, the Friend Movement is a grassroots organization created by Elliot Dal Pra London and Ronnie Kroell that aims to prevent bullying through enabling people to be better friends and by displaying positive images of people of all races, genders, and creeds.
The "New F Word" campaign is the organization's most recent effort in spreading bullying awareness and self-empowerment, as well as replacing hurtful "F" words like "freak" and "fag" with kinder ones like "friend."
By displaying thousands of pictures of celebrities and other supporters flipping the bird at bullying, the campaign hopes that others will learn to speak out against the issue and not let it continue because of silence. According to their website, the movement encourages victims of bullying to have an inner monologue that says, "F U, I am actually really FABULOUS and do not need your approval."
Along with Lambert and Rimes, stars such as Tim Gun, Lance Bass, and Carmen Elektra have given their help (and fingers) to this campaign. The Friend Movement will be launching a Kickstarter today to raise funds for a national tour where they will take 10,000 pictures of supports in three months to take a stance against all different types of bullying.

Adam Lambert Glams Up "Idol," Debuts at No. 1
Lambert didn't make his sexuality a major talking point while competing
on "American Idol" -- he later came out in a "Rolling Stone" cover story
-- "Idol" viewers and fans at home knew there was something special
about the flamboyant contestant. Lambert was out in his personal and
professional life well before he hit the "Idol" stage and made his mark
as the contestant to watch. On the show, he fired up audiences with his
glam rock stylings, sexed-up stage persona and multi-octave range.
Though he finished the 2009 season of "Idol" in second place, he
remained the season's breakout star and has since worked to become a
role model for LGBT teens. His major label debut album "For Your
Entertainment" earned him a Grammy Award nomination for the No. 10 Hot
100 hit "Whataya Want From Me," and his sophomore set, "Trespassing,"
debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in 2012. -- Keith Caulfield
