    Adam Lambert is changing his Les Mis tune. Well, sorta.

    After the American Idol alum took to Twitter Sunday to criticize Tom Hooper's musical movie adaptation, claiming the flick has "great actors pretending to be singers," he has now taken to the social media site again to clarify his remarks (and toss in a few more digs).

    "My movie review has gone viral," Lambert wrote Wednesday. "U can spend a whole year praising artists for inspiring work, but one critique gets all the attention. Funny." 

    Russell Crowe "doesn't disagree" with Lambert's criticism

    He continued, tweeting out a compliment before explaining his subpar assessment.  

    "Those raw and real moments when characters broke down or were expressing the ugliness of the human condition were superb. However...," he praised before adding, "My personal opinion: there were times when the vocals weren't able to convey the power, beauty and grace that the score ALSO calls for."

    Sound familiar? It might, considering the film's star Russell Crowe also took to Twitter to address Adam's original critique, agreeing with the singer-songwriter but explaining that Hooper wanted the film to feel "raw and real."

    But Lambert's Twitter rant didn't stop there—he went on to blame his musical theater background for his harsh review:

    "I guess I'm a purist for the original LIVE broadway recording when the actors sang the f--k outta those songs. JUST an opinion…" he said. "I should prob stop fanning the flames on this one...but I love a good debate- couldn't help myself."

    And just like his previous tweeting spree on the social media site, Lambert made sure to clarify that his comments were not intended for Anne Hathaway

    Anne Hathaway rates her Les Mis performance as "eh"

    "One last thing though: Anne Hathaway was so good- had me tearing up. Oscar worthy performance for sure! Ok. #donediscussinglesmiz," he concluded.

    Any rebuttal, Russell?
