Adam Lambert Insures Voice For $47 Million, Has More Money Than Sense.

Written by Mike Hohnen on October 15, 2012

All this performing with Queen business must have really gone to his head. It has recently been revealed that American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert has insured his vocal chords for a staggering $47 million, according to NineMSN.

It’s a little unclear where this guy gets off: if your voice isn’t good enough to win, is it good enough to insure? Are two albums really enough to deem your subpar vocal abilities as your primary source of income? Does he realise what else you can buy for that much cheese? But hey, what do we know. The dude is clearly as financially wise as he is talented and probably needs the money way more than all the starving children in Africa would have needed it…

A source close to the singer commented that “insurance for stars is a big deal in the US and Adam’s voice is his bacon. He had it insured last week.”

Artists insuring their abilities isn’t anything new, Dolly Parton insured her well-known physical assets for around $587,000 and both Springsteen and Rod Stewart insured their voices for $6 million. So what Adam is saying here is that his voice is 7.8 times better than theirs. Bit of a big claim there, Lambert. Tell you what, once you sell 120 million albums world wide, then we’ll talk comparing yourself to The Boss.

The worst thing is that someone, somewhere along the chain of command responded, ‘Ah, yeah bro, you should def insure your voice for $47 million, great idea”.
