I would love to see him do this, too. But don't you think this would set him back in the mainstream public's eye? He has said he doesn't want to be pigeonholed as "that gay singer", and he's worked hard to overcome that perception of him as a flamboyant gay. Doing this, I think, would just reinforce that stereotype.
We all know he is TALENTED!!!!, gorgeous, multifaceted, and fabulous however he chooses to present himself. But mainstream America, although they are coming around to his talent, have a harder time accepting the "glam" persona Adam used to project. Like it or not, there will always be a segment who won't even give him a chance because of that. So I think he needs to distance himself from that image to open himself to a wider audience. And I think that is what he is doing. Glam Adam is only one aspect of who he is. He is now showing the world other aspects of himself. No matter how much we (or even Adam himself) might like him to do Rocky Horror, professionally -at this time- I think it might be a mistake. But that's just MHO.
It's also MHO. Your asessment is spot on
As I've said before, Adam, with the help of DMG has worked very hard to erase that "gay glam singer" stereotype.
That persona (in part) was accepted during QAL, because he was channeling QUEEN during it's heyday when Freddie was one of the most OTT stars out there. I personally loved it (yeah...look at my siggie
:lmfao: ), but now is the time for a more sophisticated and grounded Adam. IMO that's the Era 3 Adam...and it will bring him the major broad based success he and we been looking for.
So, bye-bye, Glam Adam...we'll never forget ya!
