GQ Mocks Adam Lambert for 'Testosterone Problem', Apologizes


GLAAD ordered GQ to apologize today after publishing a tweet mocking Adam Lambert's mustache, and suggesting it wouldnt' help his "testosterone problem." They also linked to a photo of a goateed Lambert on their 'Worst-Dressed List'. The caption there says, "If you wear make-up, do not grow a mustache."

Said the tweet (now deleted):

"Rules of Street Style: If you have testosterone problems, a mustache doesn't always help."

A short time ago, they tweeted an apology:

"Re: our Lambert tweet, we were thoughtless and apologize. We shouldn't make stupid jokes about people's testosterone. As always, we learn."

  1. I think the man is HOT, and mad talented. Everyone is entitled to have a bad hair/make-up/clothes day, without being ridiculed by you pathetic losers. I say he comes close to having one of those days here, but he's still hot, hot, hot!

    But I guess when (P)rick gets his moronic ways, and this kind of "un-masculine" look gets forever banned, I'll have to look elsewhere for hotness... Yarn...

  2. I can remember the GQ of the 80s was much more neutral to its gay readership, almost as if it were a wink wink situation. Now, the magazine has to declare its heterosexuality in the most obnoxious ways. They are trying to be edgy. I have not picked up the magazine in years. As magazines continue to die, this will be one I won't miss. Thank you for listening.

  3. This is truly sad. but I have to say, that it also takes courage to apologize, I think that's worth a lot, isn't it?

  4. All I can say is ... ADAM will continue to be himself in spite of all the name calling ... gay bashing ... ridicule and snark that has been directed at him since he stepped out of obscurity by going on TV so that he'd possibly get a recording contract ... I'm sure ADAM never expected to be the focus of all this negativity when he stepped on that AI stage back in 2009. However ... as I said ... it hasn't stopped him from keeping his eye on the prize ... a career in the music industry. I love the young man who fearlessly faces all the BS thrown at him from both communities (gay & straight) and just keeps on keeping on. ADAM's performance with QUEEN at the EMAs in Belfast last month was PHENOMENAL & there is a DJ in NZ that devotes an hour of ADAM LAMBERT music on his program which is carried Worldwide. So ADAM must be doing something right to have garnered so many millions of Global fans in spite of what GQ may think of him. ADAM has what it takes to be ICONIC ... IMO!!!

  6. Clearly, testosterone level doesn't have anything to do with a person's sexual preferences. It is good to know that GQ was reprimanded for making such statement.
