London (ANI): American singer Adam Lambert has revealed that Scottish singer Susan Boyle"s cover of the Rolling Stones" hit Wild Horses was “horrendous" and made him “cry with laughter". Boyle"s album 'I Dreamed A Dream" had kept the American Idol runner-up off the top of the U.S. charts after he released 'For Your Entertainment" in November last year.
Lambert, 28, sold an impressive 200,000 copies in his first week - but he couldn"t believe he was toppled by 48-year-old Boyle"s “terrible" album. “If only it weren"t for Susan Boyle! I"m happy for her success, but that album is terrible. Wild Horses is the one that made me laugh the hardest," the Daily Star quoted him as telling Britain"s Gay Times.
“I just died when I heard it, I was crying with laughter. It was the most horrendous, sacrilegious treatment of that song! Still, when my album charted, it was validating. I was feeling bit attacked, like I had to vindicate something. I thought: 'Wow, look what I did"," he added.
