Adam Lambert Elaborates on Les Miserables Critique

by at .  Updated at .

Adam Lambert really wants to make sure you understand his problem with Les Miserables.

After the ex-American Idol contestant slammed the "distracting" singing and the actors who didn't sing very well, Russell Crowe came out and actually echoed a few of Lambert's complaints.

But Adam isn't done with the film.

"My movie review has gone viral," Lambert Tweeted today. "U can spend a whole year praising artists for inspiring work, but one critique gets all the attention. Funny."

The singer then went on to specify his issues with the big screen adaption:

"Those raw and real moments when characters broke down or were expressing the ugliness of the human condition were superb. However... My personal opinion: there were times when the vocals weren't able to convey the power, beauty and grace that the score ALSO calls for.

"I guess I'm a purist for the original LIVE broadway recording when the actors sang the f--k outta those songs. JUST an opinion... I should prob stop fanning the flames on this one...but I love a good debate- couldn't help myself."

And, finally, Lambert wants it known: he adored Anne Hathaway in her role and says the actress deserves an Oscar.

Okay then. Are we done now? Have you seen Les Miserables? What grade would you give this version of the musical?
