Could be a pissed off Durban fan. Adam so rarely says harsh things about anyone. I'll bet Durban fans are steaming furious.
Curious: Do they ask prior contestants to make statements or did Adam just offer up. Just can't figure out why he would want to dis anyone at this point, even if it is true. Is it necessary? And the thing about Pia. She's gone. Was it necessary to say something about her? I think this is part of the I align-with-the-winners game. It's a little tiger-eating-the-vulnerable for my taste. Does it make Adam look better, stronger, more honest, more kick-ass? I'm asking this honestly. I would like to know the method to the madness. You all know I love Adam. It is just a little cut throat and really has to hurt Pia and James at this point. CAn't Haley be lifted up without the others getting crushed?
Hi, Sky. I remember that quite a while ago - maybe the RS interview? - Adam talked about discussing AI with his friends, before he ever auditioned. That they'd talk about who they thought had "it," who they thought would/could be a hit, etc. Like all AI fans do. I think he's in that mode, watching and reacting to the show, as a fan as much as, well, AFL and everything else he's become.
Also, I'm thinking of his recent vow to "keep it real" and drop the "pageant smile" and the "pc."
I think he really said just what he thought - no premeditations or intentions beyond that - just as he might say to a friend before everything he said was reported. He wasn't cruel, but he wasn't guarded. He was blunt.
I know, "if you don't have anything nice to say . . . " But I think that, to Adam, singing, talent, and performance are so central to who he is, so of interest to him, "his job" he might say, that his natural "nice-ness" isn't first and foremost in his mind - his real opinion is.
(It's like the SuBo thing. I think he might really feel that her "Wild Horses" cover was more offensive than his laughing about it.)
Thanks ITA re singing, talent, and performance being so central to who he is that that takes presidence
