Cougars Love Adam Lambert!

Cougars Love Adam Lambert!

Newsweek‘s Joan Raymond gives a lengthy explanation as to why cougars (older women seeking younger men) love American Idol glam rocker Adam Lambert. Here are two choice paragraphs from the article:

“In terms of biology, Adam Lambert‘s attractiveness is kind of bizarre. Some research shows that women like square jaws and deep brows—iconic masculine traits—when they’re looking for a fling. But we like more feminine traits when we’re looking for The One, the long-term mate. Lambert has a little bit of both going on for him, as anyone who saw his version of Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Whole Lotta Love’ can attest.

“It may also go back to our childhood, as all things psychoanalytic seem to do. According to [psychoanalyst Dr. Gail Saltz], buried deep inside all of us is the childhood desire to be able to have everything and anything, whenever you want. So part of our fascination with Mr. Lambert is that we may want to be like him. ‘[Lambert] is the poster child for having it all,’ says Saltz. ‘Men want him, women want him, and that ambiguity is as hot as hell.’”

    Although I’m not close to being a cougar yet, as a straight female I find him very hot (even though that’s not the best picture of him). It’s just something about his looks, incredible talent, personality and undeniable charisma that’s hard to resist.

    Kind of nice to see JJ jumping on the bandwagon to support an out artist. But what I really want to know is if this means you’re no longer going to bombard us daily with photos of actors with their beards, particularly Reese and Jake.

    If sites like JJ didn’t give those showmances so much attention maybe people would stop engaging in them.

    yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk..i really don’t like him at all, lookwise i mean..i’m sure he’s nice and cool and everything, but i don’t see the appeal. at all.

    he looks really unhealthy, you can see it in his skin and weight. get healthy, maybe lay off the make up and junk food, then we’ll see.

    the kate gosselin hairdo has got to go!

    You know his “type” is very common. All I can see him in is the national tour of Joseph & the Dreamcoat tour or cruise ship gigs.

    Yeah he’s good but so what? He wears makeup? Please so do hundreds of rockers. He’s gay? So what? He’s a musical theatre person isn’t he? Yawn..nexxt——-

    As a woman, there’s certainly nothing I find sexier than a guy who plays butt hockey with another guy. Love his music, like his style, fine. Adult women crushing on him is just kind of pathetic.

    RobN – some of us are dirty voyeurs.

    His skin looks like stucco. He’d look like Marilyn Manson sans the 10 pounds of makeup.

    Gross. Just another screeching attention *****.

    Bryan Irrera Says:

    It doesn’t help that most women who would self-identify as “cougars” are deluded and are attracted to Adam because they have no working gaydars (or choose to ignore any concept that their “safe” pop idols are homosexuals).

    yup Says:

    I’m 17 and absolutely head over heals for him. As well as my 20 year-old sister. But I’ll tell you we are not in the least bit attracted to him cause he is gay. That only depresses us. He shouldn’t allowed to be so beautiful.. just breaking alot of girls’ hearts.. *sigh*

    forever56 Says:

    Adam.. Adam, Adam, Adam. When will the torturing end?? Stop attracting every girl of every age to you… It is most unsatisfying.. :P
    And frankly, painful… …but I still love you. ;)

    Although that’s not his best picture (there are a million awesome ones, let’s use those!) I think he’s hot and I’m definitely not a cougar!
