A Note from the Flying Monkey: I recently wrote
how weird it is that, completely coincidentally, I often get a bunch of
questions all at the same time clustered around a central theme. Well, almost
every question I received this week had something to do with music. Check it

Of, Doctor Zaius: You might not have heard about it because it was very
hush-hush, but Adam Lambert kissed his keyboardist during a performance at the
American Music Awards. Supposedly, it wasn’t rehearsed, but done “in the
moment.” So what does the keyboardist think – and is he gay? – Martin, U.S. Virgin Islands
Adam Lambert plants one on keyboardist Tommy Ratliff
A: Hush-hush indeed, Martin!
According to Lambert, keyboardist Tommy
Ratliff is straight and single, and while it’s true that the actual kiss wasn’t
rehearsed, there was, even in rehearsal, an intimate moment where Lambert
grabbed him by the hair. It didn’t take a genius to see that a kiss was a
definitely possible during the spontaneity of the performance itself.
In any event, after the performance Ratliff tweeted, "Thanks SOO much
to everyone that watched!!!! Rock n Roll is a
prostitute…it should be tartted up.”
Which seems to me to preclude the possibility of a
sexual harassment suit any time soon.
