Hearkening back to the days of David Bowie and his androgynous Ziggy Stardust persona, American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert on Wednesday displayed the cover of his latest CD, For Your Entertainment, in which he resembles a glamorous chanteuse. On his Twitter page, he thanked fans who realized that the cover "is deliberately campy" and an "omage (sic) to the past." He signed off "Androgyny. Rock n Roll." His remarks appeared aimed at preempting criticism from reviewers rather than responding to it. Surprisingly, virtually no critical flak appeared in print or on entertainment blogs Wednesday following release of the cover artwork.
