Welcome to the Jungle: Adam Lambert premieres new music video


If you want to know what a Gothic forest rave party looks like, Adam Lambert’s new video “If I Had You” offers an education.

It’s a grisly setting for a song that preaches about love, but then again Lambert likes playing to the kinky crowd (anyone remember his American Music Awards performance?). Once again he has outfitted himself in a costume that looks like it could kill someone, while singing about love triumphing over fame and fortune. In the background, equally well dressed jungle creatures grind around amid colorful strobe lights.

But all the fuss feels a bit forced—too wannabe Lady Gaga. And whereas Gaga seems to be articulating an artistry through her narrative videos and outlandish couture, Lambert is still just a great voice playing dress-up.
