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.’”

    I agree!!! Adam has it all. The looks, the talent, the charisma. I can’t wait for his music!!!!

  • Suzie

    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.

  • pat

    love him!

  • Dee dee

    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.

  • bindy

    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.

  • I

    I’m glad he has money now because he really should have his face sandblasted. ………….Such bad skin

  • bindy

    @Dee dee: do you think jake is gay? quite interesting, never thought of it..what makes you think that anyways?

  • stop

    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——-


    Cougar? Check. Glambert? Check. Yeah!

  • Cindy

    I am obsessed with Adam and I’m only 15 years old.

  • Jory

    OHH YES INDEED HE IS the poster child for having it all ;)

    I can’t agree more on this specific phrase ‘Men want him, women want him’

    sigh he is so hot and sexy and handsome and cute and the sweetest guy ever on the planet earth I love him with every vein n my body he is the best thing ever happened to me n a long time :) I adore him and I will support him and love him always :)

  • RobN

    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.

  • Jolie hot chin not

    Yes I agree. I looooooove him! He is hot – boyfriend or no boyfriend, gay or straight, he is HOT!

  • chri

    He is totally hot, he has that raw sexual energy!

  • pinkrose


  • yo

    too bad he doesn’t like woman lmaooo

  • LoserLambert

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

    Gross. Just another screeching attention wh0re.

  • cherry

    He doesn’t come off as a wimpy feminite person

  • lakers fan in boston

    it kinda sounds like whoever wrote that article is obsessed with him
    altho i wouldnt be surprised if cougars like him, 2 bad those old bitches can have him lol

  • Bryan Irrera

    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

    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

    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. ;)

  • lacey

    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!

  • kathy

    hes hot. sexy.

  • elin

    Love him,the boy is hooooooot

  • elin

    Forget something:I am young,not a cougar.Weird.

  • sarah

    i’m 16 years old and i am ridiculously obsessed with adam, especially his looks! i think that his homosexuality attracts me more to him because it is as if he is forbidden fruit… and you know he’d be a pretty wild partner!

  • AYF99

    what i like about Adam is he is who he is and he doesn’t apologise for it! (not that there is any reason to) he is confident, talented and a genuine person. he had dreams and ambition and he’s being recognized for it now due to his stint on AI. i cannot wait for his album!

  • tiff

    hahah no one can keep their hands off him!

  • yup


    That we are! lol

  • Jayne

    I am wondering if he is honestly gay or just confused because of his past childhood complexes. Seems like he would be interested in women as he is talking about bi-curious, now today he talks about maybe one day having kids – (smh) – is he fooling himself or the public (the young girls who want to throw themselves at him) – maybe he is trying to protect himself from the rush – but then again – seems like he would make out with a girl under the influence of alcohol – then he is truly gay because he cannot make out with a level head – some kind of substance has to be involved for him to makeout with a female and that is sad. Then all you chicks who are drooling and wishing and hoping – is that what you want to be used in that way?

  • Vestes de Cuisine

    I wish a real cougar would eat Adam Lambert.

  • DAY5628@AOL.COM

    In response to the person who made the nasty remark about
    Adam’s complexion. Why is it so hard for some of us to focus on the positive instead of the negative? From what I have read (& there’s been alot) Adam has always been self-conscience about his skin. I AM A COUGAR and used to be embarassed about it. But not anymore. I am crazy about him and definitely know a sexy, talented man when I see one. If you can’t stand to look at him, then don’t. Just close your eyes and listen to him.

    Check out Adam’s Austrailand photo shoot. To forever56: loved your comment. I just want to get my hands on him and ravish his body. I just can’t seem to get a grip on myself.
