Glam Nation and Parents

Finally got to watch Glam Nation Live on Friday! I waited until I had the DVD as my iTunes vids don't play seamlessly and the quality's not as good. I knew my dad wanted to see it, but the fact that my mom watched more than half surprised me. I'd still love to see her reaction to Fever though. She did like the acoustic set and asked me about If I Had You, whether it was a single. She also asked me about Twentieth Century Boy, surprised she was still watching. I think she liked it despite thinking me crazy for planning three shows.

As my dad fell asleep before the encore, I need to show him the whole vid, but he was definitely impressed. He thought it was darker than what Adam would do and honestly expected it to be more over the top. He told me Adam is a pretty man, yes using that term, and then told me he wants to see him in drag. And people wonder how I ended up a fan? I got to explain tour economics and that for some of the ideas he threw at me (pyro) it wouldn't be cheap. I told him what the ticket prices for Gaga are and was like get me a #1 single and decent tour budget and we can talk. I told him about Adam buying the rights to the images for the backdrops and that who knew what else he'd gone over budget on, lasers anyone? He told me today that after seeing the tour vid he's really rooting for him to succeed because he wants to see a bigger scale tour, and that he thinks he's capable of some fantastic music if he can find the right collaborators (asked me if he'd found his Bernie Taupin). If you'd told me this was going to be his reaction, I'd have told him months ago you need to take Monday off and come to NOLA with me. Needless to say, some great father/daughter convos happened this week, including me telling my dad about Adam's new boyfriend when we were discussing album two, he was amused when I mentioned the Big Brother connection. *sigh*

Your Dad wants to see him in drag?? That's disturbing.
In the context of a show, and not if you know my dad has done that himself for Halloween.

Okay, that's even more disturbing. :P

I can't imagine my dad doing/saying anything like that. He's been gone for years, but if he were alive, he'd just roll his eyes at my Adam obsession like he did with most of my other obsessions. I never could get him into X-Files, even though he was a big scifi fan (I think that's where I got it from). :D

I'm not a fan of Adam in drag. I've seen pics, but unfortunately I can't unsee them.
I wanna see him in real drag, not broke theater dude drag. However, he's got the right proportions for it. Legs.for.days.

You mean like the guys on RuPaul's Drag Race? Cause they look amazing all done up. They look better than most women. *feels inferior*
That would be awesome, and yeah, jealous!
