There are four Queen songs I wanted to hear Adam Lambert sing last night which he did not: “Bicycle Race,” “Death on Two Legs,” “Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy,” and “Don’t Stop Me Now.” I just checked youtube to see if he sang any of these EVER and came up empty on all but the last song. I encourage you all to watch this video, not just to hear a great rendition of a great Queen song, but to see Adam Lambert catch a pair of men’s underwear thrown at him while he is riffing. BOW DOWN, BITCHES.
Elaine Stritch rests her bike, reads a note, almost causes a riot.
NEW YORK, June 26—TOLD TO KEEP HER SHIRT ON – Blonde Elaine Stritch, understudy to Ethel Merman in the Broadway hit, “Call Me Madam,” wears halter and shorts which cause her arrest in Central Park. Today she was fined $1 and told by Magistrate Emilio Jones, “A beautiful girl like you could cause a small riot and cause a large crowd to collect by removing your shirt.” “Well,” she replied, “I was there all day and nothing happened.” (AP, 1951)
