Drudge mocks Newsweek “investigation”: Why Cougars Crave “Idol” Runner-Up Adam Lambert


Just a few short months ago, most of my female friends and I were clueless about Adam Lambert. We’re busy, professional women, some of us with demanding families and children, all of us with demanding jobs. We never spent our Tuesday nights in front of the TV. Yet this year, for slightly more than two months, phone calls went unanswered and any type of social or familial interactions were put on hold on so we could plop ourselves in front of our sets at 8 p.m. to watch American Idol, the No. 1 rated show on TV, which none of us had ever bothered with before. It started innocently enough: A friend, waylaid by a flu bug, was channel-surfing from the comfort of her couch one Tuesday evening and saw a bejeweled young thing singing a scorching rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire.” She left us phone messages and tweets, saying, and I quote, “ohmygawdyouhavetoseethisemoglambowielovechildonAmericanIdol.” We went, “Huh,” but we tuned in the following week. And then we were gone.
