It's OK, Idol fans, Adam Lambert's in on the joke.
In a Twitter post Wednesday, the openly gay American Idol runner-up, 27, told fans and critics his new album's outlandish cover art for his For Your Entertainment disc is supposed to be just that.
"Thank you to those who appreciate and understand that the album cover is deliberately campy," he wrote. "It's an homage to the past. It IS ridiculous."
Seen in the pic wearing yellow eye shadow, black eye liner and black nail polish to accent a blue 'do, the singer — dubbed "Glambert" by fans during Idol — is glad to have at least gotten fans buzzing.
"For those that don't get it: oh well…Glad to have gotten your attention," he continued. "Androgyny. Rock n Roll"
What can fans expect musically from the new disc? "It's modern and futuristic," he tells Us. As for the lead single, also called "For Your Entertainment," out next week: "Get ready to shake yo asses to this song. It'll make ya dance for sure."
