That’s right. Probably with tongue, too. Most recent evidence came yesterday in the form of a phone call from Adam Lambert to Long Island’s BLI In The Morning radio show. At the 8:15 mark, he describes a recent night on the town with pop starlet (and Gold Standard lobbyist) Ke$ha, which ended up with a playful, pop-imploding smoochfest. “She’s really pretty, we were laughing, and [then] we just started kissing,” Lambert explains. “It was pretty innocent.”
Putting aside the fact that this seems like a massive publicity stunt guaranteed to enhance both stars’ pansexual images (and probably further anger pretty much everyone with an opinion about how Adam Lambert presents his sexuality), this talk of friendly, PG-13 Frenching has me thinking about other unlikely celeb-kiss pals. By “unlikely” I mean the two people’s interaction somehow seems to suggest a hole in the celebrity time-space continuum (like Glambert getting up on Ke$ha…or really, anyone making out with Ke$ha). I always remember the never-explicitly-denied elevator encounter between Benicio Del Toro and Scarlett Johanssen, and there was an exciting period in the middle of last decade when Terminatrix Kristanna Loken made a minor tabloid career out of kissing famous ladies like Pink. Then there’s always Meryl and Sandra. Oh, and that story about Tila Tequila playing tonsil hockey with Justin Long…. What else you got, PopWatchers?
