Adam Lambert, James Durbin end 'feud' over Twitter
The Season 8 runner-up and Season 10 third runner-up's kerfuffle began when Lambert told THR that he was "kind of over" Durbin and said the heavy metal rocker had "talent and passion 100 percent but... he's trying way too hard." After he was eliminated, Durbin responded to Lambert's remarks, saying, "I was nothing more than nice to that guy and, you know, he decided to take it to a different level. So, whatever."
On Sunday, June 5, Durbin tweeted Lambert, "Hey dude! Id really enjoy grabbing some lunch with you and just talking about all this Idol/Post Idol stuff! I could really use...Some one on one advice. Regardless of any supposed bad blood, Im calling truce :) Anyway.thats me. Glad your tour is goin great. Direct message me if this is something that you might be interested in doing. Thanks for the consideration!"
Soon after, Lambert responded, "haha why don't we just go ahead and discuss it right now over twitter? I'd be honored to advise... :) #nobadblood." Then, the following conversation (which we enjoyed almost too much) occurred:
Durbin: "Well as much as they'd love it..just as u don't wanna spoil ur album, I don't wanna spoil anything lol...you understand right?"
Lambert: "Oh I definitely understand."
Durbin: "Just think about it. If youre free, hit me up. Im just not the "twitter business meeting" type. thanks anyway, brother. :-/ I'll be in the LA area all month..you know the deal :)"
Lambert: "ok :)."Did Twitter just play witness to the beginning of a Lambert/Durbin bromance? At the very least, a truce has been called. When Durbin's fans started tweeting him about his Twitter conversation with Lambert, he tweeted, ""Durbinators! You know my intentions are good! I just wanna sit down w/ a fellow musician & talk about the business But twitters the only way...To ask that musician."
