Adam Lambert Interview with Mybliss

A chat with Glambert


Bliss: Hi Adam! Congratulations on winning your MMVA. What was it like to win?Adam: Thank you! It was great, I remember saying when I received the award that I’m not used to winning! I can’t believe I won. I thought I would be the runner up.

B: So have you ever practiced winning an award then when no ones watching with your shampoo bottle?
A: No, no maybe I should try it!

B: So Snooki from Jersey Shore presented you with the award, and you're pretty experimental with your hairstyles, would you rock a Snooki hair quiff?
A: I don’t think that will be happening any time soon!

B: When you singing WWFM you are full of emotion, are you thinking of anyone in particular?
A: I usually kind of put myself in the position of acting for the public. I think that’s what's great about the song, that it kind of has a double meaning. One way it could be about certain relationships, but on the other hand it's also about relationships with the public. That’s how I read into it.

B: You’re on the Glam nation Tour at the moment, if you were the ruler of a Glam Nation, what would be your most important rules?
A: I think the most important rule for the Glam Nation would be that you need to be proud and secure with who you are. That’s where it kind of all comes from, obviously there are lots of glitter and rhinestones and camp thrown into the whole thing, but at the heart of it would be, owning your own walk, being your own person.

B: On tour you dance with your backing dancers for For Your Entertainment - are you a bit of a show off on the dance floor in a club?
A: It depends on the situation really, sometimes I really like to dance and throw it out and at other times I am just a bit of a sit on the couch kind of guy.

B: So do you enjoy getting involved in dance routines?
A: Oh yeah, yeah I love to.

B: So when on stage, Beyonce channels her alter ego Sasha Fierce, do you have an alter ego ?
A: No I don’t have an alter ego, I mean its definitely an amplified version of myself, like exaggerated you know.

B: Do you ever have moments where you don’t feel so fierce, where you don’t want to perform?
A: There are times when its like ok, I’m tired but usually, especially on this tour when I hit the stage, I get charged right up!

B: We saw a picture of you with JLS at the MMA’s did you have a chat with them?
A: Yeah they seemed like really nice guys, but I only got to speak to them very briefly.

B: You actually look like you could have been in the band. Have you ever considered going down the boy band route?
A: No that’s probably not for me!

B: Okay, but if you were in a boy band, what would be you signature move or sound to set you apart?
A: Um….I’d probably get into trouble for trying to get crazy with the other boy band members!

B: So you can hit some pretty high notes, have you reached the Mariah Carey garage door opening league yet?
A: No, not the dog whistle thing yet. It is something that I am working on though!

B: Would you ever consider going back to Broadway?
A: Yeah I would be interested in that. I think that right now my focus is definitely on my music and recording. So what I am doing now is like a step in a new direction for me and I am really enjoying where I am at right now.

B: Your fans are pretty obsessed with how you look, do you feel as though you're under pressure to look glam all the time?
A: Yeah I mean, I think that if I just wore a t-shirt and jeans it wouldn’t work - that’s what I would dress like if I was just going about my day. I think that there is a certain persona that I have set up for myself but I think its good.

B: So do you think that you would feel naked if you went on stage without your hair done and your makeup?
A: Yeah I would probably feel a bit naked, probably a little bit exposed.

B: So have you ever committed the cardinal sin of wearing your makeup to bed?
A: I have done it a couple of times before… I don’t think that it has ever been intentional but I sometimes fall asleep after having one to many drinks!

B: Do you have any must-have makeup products you just cant live without?
A: You have to have eyeliner, that’s a given. Mac, they have this eyeliner called Smoulder, that’s pretty much perfect.

B: Your glitter buddy, Ke$ha, she said that you were a good kisser, would you like to comment on her kissing skills?
A: Ha. She was great she is a great kisser too. She is adorable, I love her. We get along quite well. Unfortunately we are always both so busy so we don’t get to spend much time together though but she is a lot of fun.

B: Have you ever worked together, would you like to work together?
A: No we haven’t, but possibly I think that would be good.

B: So Taylor Lautner recently claimed that he had never missed an episode of Idol, are you a Twilight fan?
A: Yeah I like the Twilight movies, they're fun. I probably prefer Taylor.

B: Have you had any crazy fan experiences?
A: No not really, my fans are really good and really passionate, they pop up everywhere so that’s always fun!

B: So no one has tattooed your face on their arm?
A: Actually there have been a couple of people who have tattooed my name on to their arm…it happened only the other night. There was this woman who wanted me to draw on her arm with a marker so she could get a tattoo of my signature. I feel a a mixture and shock and flattery!

B: If you had a day off, what would be your ideal day?
A: Lately, I just love relaxing. If I have been busy working its nice to relax when we have been on tour. Yesterday we had a day off so its really nice to do something leisurely and we took a boat out. It was great. It was really relaxing and we just had a glass of wine. We had fishing rods with us and went fishing. We were just like why not?

B: Do you get many days off or is it few and far between?
A: Um, every two to three days, sometimes after 4 days. I'll be working really hard on tour and singing every night.

B: So you are pretty well in with people like Perez Hilton, but how do you think it must be for the people who are on the other side of nasty gossip?
A: I think that it comes with the territory. It is kind of part of this place, I mean I think I would prefer it if people were more positive in general, but I think its part of what we do. So you just kind of roll with the punches.

B: What has been your most standout moment since American Idol?
A: I have a really great time making videos, I think that is like a really exciting thing for an artist. You know, because you have to create a visual image to go along with a great song, so I think that those are always really exciting for me!

B: What’s next for you then? Are you coming back to the UK?
A: Yeah I'll be coming in the fall. The dates haven’t been confirmed yet but we are working on bringing the tour over there so that should be fun. For now, I'm going to continue touring and that’s exciting. And after that I think that I will start working on some new material.


B: What did you do the last time you were here?
A: I went out a couple of times, you know did kind of a little bit of socialising. We went to restaurants and clubs and that kind of thing, I love doing it.

B: Did you meet any nice Brit boys?
A: No no I didn’t. I didn’t really have enough time.

B: What do you think of the British accent?
A: I love it, I love the whole culture, the history, I love the wit. I think I can see myself living there - I love it.

B: Thanks a million for talking to mybliss.
A: Thank you! It has been my pleasure.

Adam Lambert Breaks One Million Sales Mark - nguồn : ROCKSTAR WEEKLY

Adam LambertToday, Adam Lambert’s official website broke the news that his debut CD, For Your Entertainment, has sold one million copies worldwide. Although there is no official resource available that tracks worldwide record releases for the public, several notable sources, including record company blogs, several American Idol blogs and many official artist websites, Lambert is now part of the American Idol elite, putting him in the top 10 best selling American Idol contestants of all time. Season 7 winner David Cooke and Lambert are the only two artists who have cracked the million mark with only one post-Idol album each.

The website wrote the following message: "It gives us great pleasure to announce that over 1 million copies of Adam Lambert's debut album, For Your Entertainment, have now been sold worldwide. Congrats to Adam for his incredible success."

Topping the list would be Season 1 winner Kelly Clarkson, who has amassed more than 23 million in total sales worldwide, while Carie Underwood has moved about 15 million albums. In US sales, Lambert’s album has been certified Gold and is currently nearing the 700,000 mark in sales, making him the 16 best selling Idol star of all time, out of 51 potential Idol recording artists.

In Canada, Lambert was awarded a Platinum Award (80,000 copies sold) in April for the album and Double Platinum Digital Download award (80,000) for the single Whattaya Want From Me, while the single For Your Entertainment was awarded a Platinum Digital Download (40,000) certification in April.

Lambert is currently on the US leg of the Glam Nation Tour that will take him well into September.

P/ s : that means America is still a mountain to keep climbing!!!!

Interview: Adam Lambert, pop singer

Published Date: 15 July 2010
By Fiona Shepherd
THE pop star scrapheap is littered with reality TV runners-up – and sometimes winners – but Adam Lambert, a former American Idol contestant who finished in second place in last year's competition, is a different breed of talent show alumnus

one who has featured on the cover of Rolling Stone (under the headline "Wild Idol"), who was allegedly considered for the imposing job of fronting Queen, and who was able to call on the songwriting services of Lady Gaga and Muse's Matt Bellamy, among others, when amassing material for his debut album.

With his soaring rock falsetto, megawatt charisma, fondness for outlandish costumes and lashings of panstick and eyeliner, Lambert was always going to be a stand-out performer, but perhaps the most telling sign of his singular talent is that he is one of the privileged few to break those reality TV ties and launch a truly global career. And that's about all he has in common with Susan Boyle.

Lambert was one of the older contestants on Idol and his experience told. Born in Indiana and brought up in San Diego, he has spent a lifetime in musical theatre since his parents enrolled him in a children's theatre group in the hope that it would provide an outlet for his boundless energy. Aged ten, he played Linus in You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown and, as an adult, he won roles in Hair and The Ten Commandments (alongside Val Kilmer). But when he moved to LA, he also channelled his innate theatricality into regular performances at alternative cabaret nights around the city, taking the same route out of the underground club scene and into the mainstream as his closest peers Lady Gaga and Scissor Sisters.

"The thing that I love about LA so much is that a lot of people come here to find an outlet for their expression," he says. "I've met a lot of incredible people that are searching for that so it's definitely a hotbed of talent and creativity and intensity and the club scene is no different."

According to legend, the idea to audition for American Idol came to him in a magic mushroom-induced vision while he was attending the Burning Man festival in the Californian desert, although when he speaks to The Scotsman, his reasoning is rather more grounded.

"It's difficult to get signed to a major label these days if you don't have a fanbase," he says. "I knew that I needed the exposure to put myself on the map so that something would happen, and American Idol seemed like the most amazing opportunity."

American Idol is subtly different to the equivalent reality talent shows in the UK. These days it tends to attract more jobbing musicians looking for a break than fame-hungry kids who just want their 15 minutes. Consequently, success on the show almost always translates to success in the US charts, and even a certain amount of kudos which would never be afforded to the likes of Shane Ward or Joe McElderry. Even so, Lambert approached the audition with some trepidation.

"I actually thought it was going to be a hopeless situation," he says. "I thought I was going to get immediately booted off because I'm so different. I didn't think they would take to me the way they did and I'm so thankful for the experience, for the producers trusting me and believing me and really helping me out on the show."

The producers believed in him so much that he was invited back to be a guest mentor in the most recent series – the first time a former contestant has been given that accolade. There have even been calls for Lambert to fill Simon Cowell's shoes as a full-time judge now that Cowell has left the show to start up an American edition of The X Factor. Lambert has the same no-bull self-possession as the TV supremo, but one suspects he might be a little too busy being a fabulous international pop star to add television personality to his CV.

His debut album For Your Entertainment, released earlier this year in the UK, features writing credits for some of the usual heavyweight suspects who are drafted in to provide commercial heft, such as Linda Perry, Idol judge Kara DioGuardi, Cathy Dennis and OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder. But far more intriguing – and revealing – is the motley array of fellow performers who were lined up to contribute material, including his pop heroine Lady Gaga, geek king Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, electro popster Sam Sparro, ex-Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins, P!nk - who wrote his new single Whataya Want From Me and, like Lambert, straddles the pop/rock divide effortlessly – and Matt Bellamy of Lambert's favourite band, Muse.

Lambert is equally comfortable inhabiting all these artists' realms, whether pumping dancefloor pop, glam pomp rock or overwrought balladry, reflecting his diverse taste in showtunes, mainstream pop and the classic rock he discovered through his DJ dad's record collection. He cites Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Robert Plant, Michael Jackson and Prince as "kind of my guys". Unsurprisingly, they are all flamboyant showmen.

Lambert has been cited – on Wikipedia, so it must be true – as the first openly gay chart pop artist on a major label in the US.

Photographs of him kissing another man emerged during his Idol stint and he chose to officially declare his sexuality in the Rolling Stone interview. But he says he had "figured it out" in his teens: "Growing up, I didn't know anybody gay. I was definitely the oddball. I was lucky that my parents were so supportive. Part of the reason why I moved to LA was to meet other people like me. But it's something that shouldn't really have any bearing on the kind of music you make or people liking it. You know, what I do in my bedroom has nothing to do with my singing, which should be a universal thing, and I'm glad that we're progressing forward and are in a place and time where it's not that big a deal."

Maybe not in the UK, where we have been down with queer pop since the emergence of Boy George. But some have speculated that it was his sexual orientation which cost him the Idol title (he lost out to housewives' choice Kris Allen). And the laissez-faire Lambert was genuinely surprised when his overtly homoerotic performance at the American Music Awards earlier this year generated a squall of controversy.So who better to turn to in a crisis than veteran pop provocateur Madonna, who offered Lambert her trademark pep talk. "She was really great, she just said, 'Keep your eye on the prize, don't get distracted by all the media celebrity stuff,'" says Lambert.

"I don't want to turn into that guy; I want to keep two feet on the ground at all times. I think just being confident and proud of who I am and how different I am maybe serves as an example to young people who are looking for someone who's not afraid to be who they are."

• Whataya Want From Me is released by RCA on Monday

1 bài viết đáng đọc viết về buổi diễn tại San francisco nhưng có thể coi là cảm nhận chung cho mọi buổi khác

Idol's' Adam Lambert makes magic in S.F.

Making an entrance worthy of the celebrity magician Criss Angel, Adam Lambert certainly didn't look like a reality television castoff at the Warfield on Friday.

Wearing a top hat, fringed overcoat and about a dozen layers of eyeliner, he literally appeared in a puff of purple smoke delivering the slinking set opener, "Voodoo."

As he pushed his zombie-like dancers around the stage, Lambert hit the first of the night's many glass-shattering refrains, "You're the hunter and I'm your prey." An interesting cross section of grandmas and club kids made up most of the sold-out audience.

Despite his disappointing second-place finish last year on the eighth season of "American Idol," the 28-year-old San Diego native's popularity has only rocketed since breaking free of the show. Last week, his 2009 album "For Your Entertainment" topped the 1 million sales mark while offers for movie roles and television specials came flooding into his agent's office.

So while the current crop of "Idol" alumni struggle to fill seats with their own packaged tour this summer, Lambert had little trouble selling out dates on his big-budget Glam Nation tour, which also included a second concert Sunday with his fellow "Idol" contestant Allison Iraheta and former Michael Jackson guitarist Orianthi once again opening.

Those concerned that Lambert might tone down his act after the uproar caused by his American Music Awards performance (and subsequent banning by the producers of "Good Morning America") could rest easy.

Lambert put his extensive background in the performing arts to good use during his hourlong Warfield set. He probably would have been more at home at the Orpheum Theatre just down the street.

Lambert's cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" dripped with even more stylized pomp than the version he did on the television show. And he could unfurl his full vocal acrobatics on a run through the Lady Gaga-penned "Fever" without having to worry about facing the wrath of Simon Cowell's rolling eyes.

The concert's centerpiece was an acoustic segment made up of the songs "Whataya Want From Me," "Soaked" and "Aftermath" - all seemingly custom made to reinforce his narrative as a pop outsider storming the gates. "Wanna scream out, no more hiding," he sang on the last one, milking every word for deep blue melancholy. "Don't be afraid of what's inside."

Given the relatively short set time, the constant stream of musical interludes designed to give Lambert time to slip through his many varied black outfits felt like momentum killers. His brief between-song banter, meanwhile, sounded like it was pilfered from a rock star manual that had been lying backstage since 1986.

But Lambert thundered through the rest of the night with remarkable confidence, leading the charge on "Music Again" and looking like an extra from Duran Duran's "Wild Boys" video in a particularly fervent take on the new single, "If I Had You."

The encore, meanwhile, saw Lambert revert to type. Reviving a pair of songs that helped lift him through the ranks on "Idol" - Tears For Fears' "Mad World" and Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love" - he reminded his fans why they put their faith (and votes) in him in the first place.smile8

PREVIEW: San Diego-raised Adam Lambert comes home again with first solo tour


One year ago this week, the "American Idol" concert tour ---- led by homegrown singing sensation Adam Lambert ---- played to a near-capacity crowd at the San Diego Sports Arena. This summer, the star-starved "Idol" tour is limping so badly that it's shutting down two weeks early.

Summer concert revenues are down 16 percent this year, and even major artists (Rihanna, the Eagles, the Jonas Brothers, Christina Aguilera, to name a few) have been forced to cancel dates.

But one tour that has sold out virtually every stop since it hit the road last month is Glam Nation ---- Lambert's first solo tour, which arrives in San Diego for another sold-out show Friday (after two sold-out dates Tuesday and Wednesday in Costa Mesa).

Since his visit last July, the flamboyant glam-rocker ---- who grew up in Rancho Penasquitos and graduated from Mt. Carmel High School in 2000 ---- has solidified his pop star status by selling more than 1 million albums worldwide.

Lambert says he's "blown away" by his success, but his friends, family and tourmates aren't. They say the combination of his one-of-a-kind voice, showmanship, humble personality, iconic style and dogged work ethic have positioned him for a long and successful career.

As his father, South Park San Diego resident Eber Lambert, explained during an interview, Adam spent 10 years struggling to make it in L.A. and has no intention of taking things easy.

"He never stops. He's always saying yes to interviews, photo shoots, radio promotion," said the elder Lambert, a program manager for Novatel Wireless in Sorrento Valley. "My impression is that he thinks he's only halfway there. 'American Idol' was just the doorway to get his foot into the industry, but he feels he's got a long way to go. He doesn't want to be remembered as just the runner-up from 'Idol.'"

The rise

Lambert may have finished second to Kris Allen in the "Idol" voting last year, but he's the one who got the Rolling Stone cover story (in which he confirmed his homosexuality); he's the one rapturous crowds and music critics anointed the "Idol" tour's star; and it was his debut album that attracted some of the world's top music producers and songwriters.

And no matter how much makeup, rhinestones, glitter and jewelry Lambert adorned himself with, his female fan base skyrocketed.

"Women have always found Adam attractive," said Courtney Corey, an Escondido actress who spent two years with him in the L.A. company of "Wicked" in 2007-'08 (where they understudied the roles of lovers Elphaba and Fiyero together). "Even when it came out that he was gay, his allure only increased. What's attractive about him is that he's confident in who he is, and he's a very nice, down-to-earth, easy-to-get-along-with guy who happens to be a great singer."

Lambert's sexuality may have cost him the "Idol" crown, but it also made him a trailblazer as America's first openly gay pop star ---- a label he said he accepts with some ambivalence. He hopes that his openness helps others struggling with their identity, but he wants to be known for more than his sexual orientation.

"I think the level of my success is a reflection of where we are as a society," he said in a teleconference last month. "I'm really excited that we have gotten to a point where it's acceptable to some people ---- to enough people."

The fall

But just as suddenly as he exploded into the public consciousness, Lambert stumbled last fall. His glam-pop-dance album, "For Your Entertainment" (with a campy, over-the-top CD cover that elicited much head-scratching), failed to sell the millions of copies some industry analysts predicted. Some critics said he should have stuck to the straight-up, high-note-filled rock that distinguished him on "Idol," but Lambert responded that "conformity isn't my thing."

"To do a bunch of derivative-sounding rock music would've been too much of an expected choice. I wanted to do my brand of pop music, something a little different," he said, adding that his vision of "glam pop" is "tongue-in-cheek with a campiness to it ... that should put a smile on your face and should make you feel like dancing and dressing up."

Then came the American Music Awards telecast, where some raunchy dance moves and a kiss with his male bassist led to broad condemnation in the media and the cancellation of several TV appearances. Lambert called his AMA performance an "artistic experiment," where he simply got carried away.

"I learned a lot from it --- what my limitations were and what my audience wants to see."

Eber Lambert said the most notable thing to him about Adam's AMA performance wasn't the kiss ---- after all, female pop stars have been doing the same theatrics for years ---- but that his son's nerves and adrenaline affected his usually flawless voice.

"It was the worst live performance I'd ever heard from him, but in all the stories that came out afterward, nobody mentioned his singing."

In a subsequent phone call, Eber said he suggested to Adam that he write a "gently worded apology," but he said Adam decided that would only make things worse.

"I don't think he was really hurt by the backlash, just surprised by it, and he didn't realize it would be talked about for three months."

Lambert was also criticized by some "Idol" watchers who thought he'd strayed too far outside the show's squeaky-clean boundaries, but his "Wicked" castmate Corey said these fans hadn't been paying very close attention.

"I found it funny when I read people complaining that he'd 'changed' since 'Idol,'" said Corey, who first worked with Lambert at San Diego's Starlight theater when he was a redheaded 13-year-old.

"Adam has always been Adam. He always loved the crazy makeup, the jewelry and spiky hair. He could be wild and crazy, and he was always into the glam thing. He's a very open, honest and straightforward guy."

The return

The AMA fallout doomed Lambert's first single (the S&M-themed "For Your Entertainment"), but he quickly rebounded with a follow-up, the heartbreak ballad "Whataya Want From Me," which became a Top 10 hit worldwide. His third single, the upbeat dance/pop song "If I Had You," is at 28 on the Billboard pop chart, and its psychedelic video (inspired by Lambert's Burning Man Festival experiences) has been No. 1 or 2 all month on VH1, where he's the network's most visited artist.

Lambert said his first three singles are an apt reflection of his life during the past eight months.

"The first single was about sexuality ---- it ended up scaring a lot of people, as sexuality often does. 'Whataya Want From Me' was me saying I'm human and I'm doing the best I can, thank you for believing in me, this is me being honest and scared.'"

"If I Had You," by contrast, is about coping with the loneliness bred by stardom.

"The sentiment is that no matter how much success and fame and glamour you have in life, it doesn't really mean anything unless you have love and connectivity," he said.

Lambert has spread that love and connectivity around by constantly promoting fellow artists on his Twitter page (538,000 followers), hiring longtime friends to dance and play music on his tour, and putting family members on the payroll (his mother, Leila, is his estate manager and younger brother Neil is a tour production assistant).

"I'm a firm believer in the idea that if you receive success in your life, you try to spread it around a little bit," he said.

The tour

The Glam Nation tour represents the culmination of Lambert's nearly two decades of stage experience. He helped design the costumes (New Orleans black magic/steampunk-meets-Boy George), picked the slide projections (a mix of voodoo, Dia de los Muertos and mystical imagery), and crafted an "emotional throughline" that starts out "dark and mysterious," moves into an acoustic, emotionally bare midsection, then ends on a high-energy celebratory note. His hourlong set list (relatively short by concert standards, because all the high notes put great strain on his voice) includes most of the songs from his album, a couple of unreleased tracks and a few "Idol" favorites ("Ring of Fire," "Mad World," "Whole Lotta Love"). The highly theatrical show has lasers, four dancers and several costume changes. Tour venues range from 2,000-seat theaters to 16,000-seat amphitheaters.

Opening the show are Orianthi, the Australian guitarist/pop singer seen in Michael Jackson's posthumous "This Is It" concert documentary, and Allison Iraheta, Lambert's young "Idol" tourmate from last year, who said she looks up to Lambert as both a big brother and a mentor.

"One night I went out in the crowd to watch him perform, and it's so crazy to see how he captivates everyone's attention," Iraheta said last week. "Every set of eyes was on him. Every word that comes out of his mouth, there's such meaning. He feels every single word. Dude, it's so good."

Orianthi said Glam Nation audiences ---- who break out blue glowsticks during one song and have choreographed "flash mob" group dance numbers ---- have been unlike any she's seen before.

"They're such a happy group of people. They're all there to have a good time, they're so supportive of the music, and they're all covered in sparkles. It's a very glittery crowd."

For his part, Lambert said he's excited to see the diversity in the audience.

"The main fan base I was exposed to were mostly middle-aged women, like from 40 to 60, and they've been so sweet and so great with this amazing, almost maternal-type energy," Lambert said. "But at the shows, I've been really surprised to see teenagers, both female and male. I've seen husbands. I've seen grandpas. I've seen a mix of men and women ---- and different ethnicities. You know, it's really exciting."

The tour continues through the fall and then heads overseas, a market that accounts for a third of Lambert's record sales.

The future

He'll start work on a new record next year and his wish list includes working again with Max Martin (who co-wrote "Whataya Want From Me") and perhaps a collaboration with some of his own idols, Christina Aguilera and David Bowie. He's also expressed an interest in appearing on one of his favorite TV shows, the HBO vampire saga "True Blood."

Eber Lambert said the near-constant traveling and promotion have taken a toll on his son. Adam came home exhausted from a European promotional tour last spring and has privately lamented the loss of privacy and "hangout time" with his friends.

"I don't think he realized how much work it would be," Eber Lambert said. "That's what he told the 'American Idol' contestants this year when he was mentoring them ---- how it doesn't stop. 'You think this is tough? Just wait.' He once said, 'I wish I was back on "Idol," where I could just hang around the mansion and sing once a week.'"

One 'Idol' alumnus who shares Lambert's opinion is 2007 season winner Jordin Sparks.

"I would have to agree with Adam," Sparks said in an e-mail interview last month. "It's actually a lot more work than people think. I would say about 10 percent of it is actually the red carpets and free stuff. The other 90 percent is traveling, meetings, interviews, recording, writing, rehearsing, marketing, not getting any sleep and missing your family. Loneliness creeps in sometimes."

This sort of pressure-cooker lifestyle has cracked up many artists or led them to cope with drugs and alcohol. But don't expect this to happen to Lambert. Corey said she's sure Lambert will handle the career demands well. His rock-solid reputation for stability, reliability and consistency is what kept him an understudy in "Wicked" for so long.

"Not many people can be a good understudy," she said. "Everyone knew Adam was great. When he finally went on and he hit those notes in the stratosphere, oh my God, everybody just froze and listed for a moment in amazement. But when you're Old Reliable, they don't move you up because it's hard to find people that can do two parts at once."

Lambert said he does get run-down sometimes, but once he hits the stage each night, he's re-energized by the fans, who can be heard in YouTube videos shrieking at his every hip swivel, shoulder shrug and booty shake (along with an occasional replay of the infamous boy-on-boy kiss).

"I am extreme," he admitted. "Sometimes for certain people, that's not what they're looking for. But if you're looking for it, look this way."

Six things you may not know about Adam Lambert

1. Lambert's female following started early. A group of Mormon girls in the choir with Lambert at Mt. Carmel High so idolized him, they were like a virtual harem. Yet while he was the star of chorus and drama, Lambert was not a very good math student. "Adam wasn't born with the math gene," his father, Eber Lambert, said.

2. Between musical theater jobs in 2003, Lambert worked at a cosmetics counter in an L.A. department store. His makeup and people skills were so admired, the cosmetics company offered him a $50,000-a-year job as a cosmetics demonstrator/trainer, but he turned it down to follow his performance dreams. A year later, he hit a career low when his father declined to lend him money to record an album and they had a brief falling-out. He eventually found work as a blond-haired football player in the execrable "Debbie Does Dallas: The Musical" in Lake Tahoe. The show was so bad, Lambert wouldn't let anyone in his family come see it.

3. When Lambert called his father to say he was quitting the musical "Wicked" to take part in "American Idol" last year, his father was shocked. He'd never heard of the Fox series and couldn't understand why his son would quit his job "to go on a game show."

4. Lambert is known for his rich vocabulary and articulate interviews, even though he never attended college. His father attributes Adam's speaking skills to being a voracious reader (particularly during the "Idol" tour) and his "attraction to people he can have good conversations with."

5. To give back to the public schools where he first trained in voice and theater, Lambert created a charity through donorschoose.org that has raised more than $315,000 to date for school arts programs.

6. When his hairstylist shaved clean a three-inch square of hair on one side of Lambert's head last month ("it was air-conditioning because some of these cities' concert halls are really hot"), the resulting fan furor (dubbed "Hairgate") was written up on the Web sites for People magazine and E and MTV networks. Relax, everyone; the hair has since grown back.

"Iraheta happy in support mode for 'big brother' Lambert

Q: You’ve spent a lot of the past 18 months with Adam. What’s your relationship like?

A: He’s like a brother to me. From time to time, he’ll pop into my dressing room and we talk. We still have that relationship. It’s so good and it makes the road so much better. He’s still giving me that big-brother advice.

Q: How have you seen Adam change during the past year and a half?

A: Throughout the “Idol” tour experience, he would bring his own thing to it, and now that he’s got his own tour and he’s doing his own music, I can see a side of Adam that everyone was just getting to know on “Idol.” He’s letting loose, doing what he wants and definitely growing into who he is.

Q: What’s he like behind the scenes? Is he a leader on the tour?

A: This is his tour, so he has to feel comfortable with what’s going on. He watches our sets, he talks to us backstage. I feel like he’s taken charge. It’s so cool to see him do his own thing.

Adam Lambert: For Your Entertainment
4 commentsby Ed Masley - Jul. 27, 2010 03:56 PM
The Arizona Republic


His theatrical sense of sartorial splendor helped establish Adam Lambert as an overnight sensation back when the public could only assume he was gay, tuning into "American Idol" week after week to see him give the show the glamour shot it so desperately needed.

Adam Lambert

When: 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 1.

Where: Marquee Theatre, 730 N. Mill Ave., Tempe.

Adam Lambert pics
American Idol: Season 8
Q&A: Adam Lambert on 'Idol,' tour

CD review: Adam Lambert, 'For Your Entertainment'

But if "Idol" put the then-27-year-old former cruise-ship entertainer on the fast track to stardom, it's also made him something of a lightning rod for homophobic sentiment three decades after Boy George took gay flamboyance to the mainstream. And it has only gotten worse since Lambert came out, in Rolling Stone, within weeks of his second-place finish.

"When I got off 'Idol,' " Lambert says, "there was so much talk about my sexuality that I was like, 'You know, I'm gonna put this to rest because it's just obnoxious.' And I figured that by coming out, it would actually kind of hush it up."

Lambert laughs, then, with a sigh, adds, "But, you know, you learn things."

He was semi-outed midway through the season when a photo of Lambert in drag and others of him making out with an ex-boyfriend surfaced online, giving Bill O'Reilly all the evidence he needed to begin a dialogue on Lambert's sexuality.

"I was like, 'Oh God, I have a feeling that what they're gonna do is get me on the show and then the first week the judges are gonna massacre me so that the audience doesn't vote for me,' " Lambert recalls with another laugh, "because that's what they've done to people that were a little bit different in the past. So I was like, 'OK. I'm ready. If this is how it goes down, this is how it goes down.' "

But despite O'Reilly's reservations about what "the folks" would think, Lambert made it through the photo controversy to spend much of Season 8 as the front-runner, finishing second to Kris Allen, who was "shocked," as he told Rolling Stone, to learn he'd won.

And with good reason.

Entertainment Weekly had already featured Lambert on the cover. Rolling Stone was clearly in his corner, unless proclaiming that he'd single-handedly saved "American Idol" wasn't meant to be a compliment. Even the judges seemed to think he had it in the bag.

A ruckus-raising kiss
Once the finals were over, Lambert knew the time had come to set the record straight - on his terms.

"It's important," he says, "because we don't have a lot of people in mainstream music that are alternative with their sexuality. I also think there are a lot of kids out there, whether they're gay or lesbian or they're just different, that don't have a lot of people to look up to that are comfortable being different. I've heard from a lot of young people that really appreciate it, so that makes me feel like what I'm doing has importance.

"Obviously, there are people that aren't comfortable with it, but at this point in my life, I feel like, 'You know what? If what I do in my bedroom makes you that uncomfortable, listen to somebody else.' "

If the thought of what he's doing in his bedroom is enough to make some "Idol" viewers squirm, then the sight of him actively sticking his tongue in another man's mouth on November's "American Music Awards" could certainly present a bigger challenge to the mass acceptance Lambert craves.

Invited to bring the awards to a buzz-worthy close with the title track to "For Your Entertainment," he walked two men in bondage gear like dogs. He grabbed a dancer by the hair and gyrated against his face. After posing the musical question, "Can you handle what I'm 'bout to do?" he planted an open-mouthed kiss on his male keyboard player.

By the next day, the Parents Television Council, a conservative advocacy group, had responded with a statement encouraging members to contact the Federal Communications Commission, ABC, Dick Clark Productions and advertisers to complain about Lambert's "demeaning" behavior.

As council president Tim Winter framed it, "American teenagers - and especially teenaged girls - are literally under siege by the entertainment media. It is outrageous that children today cannot watch a televised awards program for an industry that is built squarely on their backs. . . . It is beyond contemptible."

ABC received approximately 1,500 complaints and responded by canceling Lambert appearances on "Good Morning America" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

Looking back on the performance, Lambert says he knew it would be "somewhat controversial," but feels the backlash may have more to do with sexual preference than sexual content.

"It's like guys, c'mon, it's kissing," he says, with a laugh. "It's just a kiss."

If anything, he meant it to be funny, Lambert says - a playful nod to David Bowie's onstage antics (or what Lambert calls "shenanigans") with guitarist Mick Ronson in his Ziggy Stardust days.

But Middle America doesn't know from Ziggy Stardust.

"It's funny," says Deon Brown, the editor of ION Arizona, an entertainment and lifestyle magazine for the gay community. "Fifty years ago with Liberace, people just thought, 'Well, he's good to his mother. He can't be all bad.' Through all the sequins and outfits, no one ever commented. Here, Adam Lambert kisses one boy and everything explodes. It's really quite astonishing. He hasn't done anything bad. There hasn't been pornography revealed in his past. There haven't been drugs. But because he prefers men and will kiss one on national television, all of a sudden, people go bananas."

Winning fans
When Lambert's appearance at Tempe's Marquee Theatre was first announced on azcentral.com back in June, most comments were seasoned with harsh homophobic invective, moral outrage or the sort of gay jokes one might normally expect to hear from a middle-school bully.

"I learned years ago, you can't please everybody," Lambert says. "You just have to be true to yourself. The performers I've always been drawn to are performers that are confident and know who they are."

The backlash hasn't hurt him much. Despite the fact that only one song from his RCA debut has been a significant hit - the anthemic "Whataya Want From Me," which peaked at No. 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 - he has sold more than 681,000 U.S. copies of the album, "For Your Entertainment," according to Nielsen SoundScan, while an additional 2.1 million songs from the album have been purchased digitally.

Lynda Bayless has one of those 681,000 copies. She's an Adam Lambert superfan who lives just north of San Francisco. The Marquee performance will be her 11th Lambert concert overall, her eighth in a 10-day-stretch following the tour from town to town. And the thought that there are people out there hating on a man she calls the "most talented, unbelievable artist I've seen in my life" disturbs her.

"I am so appalled," says Bayless, whose 60th birthday is three days before the Marquee gig, "that we are in the year 2010 and there are people, Number 1, who think that sexuality is a choice. I thought we were moving beyond that."

To Bayless, Lambert's openness is something that should be applauded, not condemned.

"What's so refreshing about Adam Lambert," she says, "is that he said, 'I'm not going to pretend.' And I find that courageous. I find it refreshing. And so, when I see that the fact that he is gay is something people hate about him, it's beyond me. I can't understand the people who react that way, and I don't want to."

Kristi Escarcega, a 34-year-old stay-at-home mom from Chandler who recently told her 5-year-old that "sometimes boys like boys and girls like girls and you can decide about that when you're older," says it was "pretty apparent" that Lambert was gay from the start. After seeing him live on last summer's American Idols Live Tour, Escarcega started telling friends, "I never wanted to be a gay man until I saw him in concert."

"And part of the reason I love him so much is the fact that he is so open and honest, and doesn't worry about what other people are thinking," she says. "He's not changing himself to try to get more fans."

It's doubtful Lambert would have gotten through to Bayless, Escarcega and thousands of other supporters without the star-making power of "Idol." And ironically, that has only made him that much more susceptible to the abuse he gets for being gay from pockets of the population that wouldn't necessarily have a Scissor Sisters record on their radar.

Escarcega's 60-something mother, for example, was a bit put off by Lambert's shenanigans on the "American Music Awards."

"Those are the people," she says of her mother, "who maybe aren't so used to seeing that. Because Boy George and stuff like that, when MTV was going strong, it's not like they were watching that. They didn't have access to people who were so openly gay because they didn't watch the type of things that they were on. And 'American Idol' is a family show. They put it right there in your living room."

It doesn't help that many of those living rooms are in the sort of areas where if your neighbor was gay, he'd be doing everything he could to keep it in the closet.

As ION Arizona's Brown, who lives in central Phoenix, sees it, "Most of America is made up of small towns with people who lead quiet lives and aren't exposed to this. And we forget that, living in big cities. We say, 'I don't understand why this is shocking.' Well, for most of America, this sort of thing is very, very racy and maybe even somewhat threatening. I read a statistic that most of the viewers for 'American Idol' are in the rural American South. And little old ladies, they want a nice young man to be up onstage singing at a county fair. They don't want him to be wearing eyeliner with polished fingernails."

Few performers have been in a better position to grasp the inherent "American Idol" dichotomy than the man they call Glambert.

"That's kind of the twist on it," he says. "A group like Scissor Sisters came up in New York, and they had all these hipsters and tastemakers paying attention to who they are, and that's how they got known. 'Idol' is obviously more mass exposure. But you know, it's so funny to me. I thought to myself when that was all going down, 'I'm probably more for the people in the major cities, in LA and New York, and the pockets of people around the country who are open-minded and liberal and whatnot.'

"But being on tour for the past month in some more Southern areas, more rural areas, what I'm surprised to find is there are people wherever you go that appreciate this type of performance. And I think it's really beautiful."

Music is the point
Paul Levinson, a professor of pop culture and media at Fordham University, thinks those who find Lambert offensive may be losing ground.

"I think we're living in an age - and this is fortunate - in which the sexual preferences of singers have almost no role in their success or failure," he says. "What counts is their talent."

ABC's pulling the plug on those appearances, he says, "was just the stupid networks worrying about offending viewers" when "the great majority of Americans are not the least bit offended by these things."

If Elvis Presley had come out in 1958, he says, that may have been a problem.

"But here in 2010, what you find is that it's no longer that much of an issue. I think America has grown up, to some extent. Groups like the Parents Television Council, they're fighting a losing battle. They represent a small number of Americans who can be very vocal and pressure networks and the government to adhere to some sort of standards of morality.

"But I think most Americans, when it comes to entertainment, they might be moderately interested, but what moves them is the music."

No regrets
Asked if there's anything he wishes he had handled differently, Lambert laughs and says he has never been the type to have regrets. But there are things he might have changed about the "American Music Awards" performance.

"I think maybe I should have done it at rehearsal, what I did at the performance," Lambert says, "because that probably would have prevented the network from freaking out. But honestly? I think it's an important message that I sent out - that I'm not a puppet. I'm not squeaky-clean. I have my edginess. That expression onstage is very much a part of me. I think a lot of people were surprised by it because they didn't see all that on 'Idol,' but I didn't really have an opportunity to have any dancers to fondle on 'Idol,' did I?"

Lambert laughs out loud, which he does often.

"And again," he says, "I'm just making you laugh. That's the thing. All this stuff goes into print and everybody goes, 'Oh my God, I can't believe you said that.' I'm like, 'I'm just joking.' And then I had the people that are criticizing it, going, 'Oh. He just did it for attention.' I'm like, 'Well, isn't that what we do? Isn't that my job?' I'm a performer."

Rất thích trang LATimes này. Và cũng thật lâu quá rồi bên đấy mới lại có một bài viết về Adam :) ~

Live review: Adam Lambert at the Pacific Amphitheater
July 29, 2010 | 9:13 am

With fur epaulets accenting his purple fringed coat, the color palette of an old Italian movie poster brushed around his eyes, and a feather in his super-sized top hat which happens to be adorned with a sparkly, blood-red letter A, everything about Adam Lambert screams “look at me.” It’s one reason the San Diego native first tried his hand at musical theater as a kid and later auditioned for what’s arguably the country’s biggest stage, “American Idol.”

Lambert didn’t win that competition, coming in second to Kris Allen on Season 8, but in the post-“Idol” success race, there is no contest. While Allen opened for Barenaked Ladies at the Greek Theater last week, a perfectly respectable booking in addition to warmup slots for Keith Urban and Maroon 5, Lambert was headlining a second sold-out show at the Pacific Amphitheater on Wednesday, halfway through a world tour that has him playing to near-capacity crowds from now until December.

As for that summer concert slump we all keep reading about? It may be plaguing the Season 9 Idols Live outing, but it was nowhere to be seen at the Costa Mesa stop of the Glamnation Tour, where Adam Lambert devotees -- or Glamberts, as they’re affectionately known -- from all walks of life (disproportionately heavy on the female, over- 40 variety) filled nearly every one of the venue’s 8,500 seats. What they got in return for their $39.50 (besides free entry to the O.C. Fair)? A show, in every sense of the word.

Fellow “Idol” alum Allison Iraheta kicked off the evening at sunset, followed by guitar prodigy Orianthi. Both offered strong sets but delivered double the punch when they jammed together on Allison’s addictive new single, “Don’t Waste the Pretty.”

Setting a slightly more subdued tone, Lambert’s 65-minute set opened with two deep cuts from his debut album “For Your Entertainment”: the moody “Voodoo,” with a projection of the moon as its backdrop, and the seductive “Down the Rabbit Hole,” which beckons an allegorical animal -- played by one of four dancers -- to “come on and follow me” through a rainbow-colored laser jungle.

And so they did -- the crowd, that is. A reprise of Lambert’s Middle Eastern-flavored take on “Ring of Fire,” a favorite from his “Idol” run, was met with shrieks befitting a bona fide rock star, while “Fever,” co-written by Lady Gaga, featured a playful but full-on lick of bassist Tommy Joe Ratliff’s face, perhaps to remind fans that Lambert’s 2009 American Music Awards stunt wasn’t so much the exception as the rule.

On the flip side, and borrowing a line from his own song, “Whataya Want From Me,” Lambert was equally adept at slowing it down. He delivered the Pink-penned tune with only an acoustic accompaniment by longtime guitarist and friend Monte Pittman. It gave the radio hit more emotional resonance. On the dramatic “Sleepwalker,” with its winding melodies, and “Soaked,” with its sparse arrangement, Lambert put his octave-defying vocal reach on full display, mesmerizing first-timers and prompting at least one of the aforementioned cougars to angrily shush a couple nearby for talking too loudly during his impassioned performance.

In truth, there were areas in the amphitheater where the vocal volume was severely lacking. Any die-hard would want Lambert’s live voice to pierce their very being, so while turning it up to 11 was probably an O.C. Fair no-go, in some spots the sound barely cracked seven. Fortunately, as the tempo picked up with songs like “Music Again” and the Scissor Sisters-esque “If I Had You,” the energy of the crowd, singing along to every word with arms in the air, gave it the fullness it deserved.

Three fierce knee-length coats and one suggestive walking cane later, Lambert’s encore offered a quick “Idol” flashback: an up-tempo version of “Mad World,” widely regarded as one of his finest moments on the show, which segued into a slowed-down rendition of “Whole Lotta Love.” Both songs exhibited the bold vocal twists and turns that have become Adam Lambert’s trademark, albeit without the production bells and whistles that a No. 1 TV show can buy.

Indeed, the five or so stairs on Lambert’s stage are much smaller than the ones on “Idol,” the lighting setup simpler and the band more compact. The end result: All eyes naturally fixate on the frontman. So go ahead and gawk. Adam Lambert wants you to.

STEALING THE SHOW: Adam Lambert separates self from other 'American Idol' contestants with spark
smile8



Butterless toast. Nonalcoholic beer. Mayonnaise. "American Idol" contestants.

What do all of the above have in common?

They're all bland, boring, low on flavor and as predictable as the weather this time of year.

From Kelly Clarkson to Taylor Hicks to Chris Daughtry, whether they've become household names or also-rans, most "Idol" vets are the rock, pop and R&B equivalents of training wheels, safe and dull, exciting only for those who don't know any better.

Even the biggest star to emerge from the series, country Barbie doll Carrie Underwood, is so middle-of-the-road, she could double as a highway median.

This is what makes 2009 "Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert a welcome departure from the "Idol" archetype.

All attitude and androgyny, with a wild-eyed wardrobe and -- get this -- a pulse, Lambert comes slathered in eyeliner and Ziggy's stardust. For a show whose contestants often pack all the spark of a pack of wet matches, Lambert's a lightning rod.

Seriously, the dude cuts his hair, and it's like tectonic plates colliding. Recently, Lambert shaved off a swath of his coif, and it actually was considered news by some entertainment outlets.

"I thought it was hilarious that E! Online and MTV and People.com and so on and so forth wanted to report on it," Lambert chuckles. "But I'm flattered that they find it that important."

Of course, Lambert's hair isn't important at all, but still, it's more exciting than talking about, say, Bo Bice.

And as the first openly gay "American Idol" contestant, Lambert has gotten even more scrutiny for his sexuality, not that it seems to bother him much.

"I kind of feel like I know there's a lot of people out there that are homophobic and closed minded, but I also know that there's a lot of people out there that are open," Lambert says. "So I think that my level of success is a reflection of where we're at as a society, and I'm really excited that we have gotten to a point where it's acceptable to some people -- to enough people."

And Lambert has certainly found an audience. His 2009 full-length "For Your Entertainment" sold close to 200,000 copies its first week out with its operatic pastiche of bombastic rock, electro pop and purring R&B.

It's a winking, stylistic hodgepodge of a record, powered by Lambert's brassy, theatrical tenor.

In a way, it's reminiscent of '80s pop radio, when there weren't such rigid bounds between, say, Tina Turner's femme funk, Dire Straits' big, bad guitar rock and David Bowie's well-heeled pop, all of which you could hear right after one another on the same station.

"I think the whole concept of genre is kind of passe," Lambert says of the heterogeneous nature of "Entertainment." "I kind of think that we're living in the post-modern age, and I think that the key to music right now is mixing it all up. For me, I'm doing a lot of pop music with a lot of guitars. So it has its rock edge and it has its pop edge."

The fact that Lambert's repertoire has anything resembling an edge to begin with is enough to separate him from his "Idol" peers.

He's easy to dismiss as kitsch on the surface, but the fact that Lambert is aware of as much let's us know that he's in on any perceived joke.

Lambert has named his current road show the "Glamnation Tour," and it's an apt tag, for like the best glam rock, Lambert is most serious about not taking himself too seriously.

"I think that's one of the great things about glam rock and glam pop is that it's all kind of tongue-in-cheek," he says. "It has campiness to it, it has lightness to it. It should put a smile on your face. It should make you feel like dancing and dressing up."

10 ĐIỀU CẦN BIẾT VỀ ADAM LAMBERT

juneauxena over at "onthemeaningofadamlambert" wrote this amazing summary about Adam. Must read!



1. He is one of the best singers in rock/popular music, combining a gorgeous tone with sensitive phrasing and expression. For an example of sheer vocal chops, listen to this performance in Brigadoon when he was 22. . Meatloaf praises Adam as the greatest singer since Janis Joplin. In introducing Adam at the 2010 KISS concert, Boston radio DJ Matt Siegel said “Every once in a great while…and we’re talking generations, somebody explodes on the national stage and changes everything.”

2. He is a complete entertainer – singer, dancer, actor – with a commanding stage presence and charisma that makes his live performances electrifying.. Check out this performance of Lady Gaga-penned Fever., In the American Idol finale performance with Queen and fellow contestant Kris Allen, Adam owned the stage.

3. He is already enjoying significant commercial success. Adam’s For Your Entertainment debuted in November 2009 as the top-selling U.S. CD, with nearly 200,000 units sold in the first week, and surpassing one million in worldwide sales this July. His single “Whataya Want From Me” reached #10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and #2 on Adult Pop. He is the first artist in 2010 to have two #1 VH1 Top 20 music videos (“Whataya Want From Me” and “If I Had You”). Barely one year after Idol, he is selling out his first headlining tour, to more than 70 cities in the U.S. and overseas.

4. He spans musical genres, from Broadway and Rat Pack to hard rock and electropop, and can inhabit iconic songs with utter conviction. His audacious song choices on American Idol blew away many observers, like this male sports writer.

5. He appeals to an extraordinary range of fans across generational, political, ethnic and national boundaries. He is a synthesizer and unifying artist, whose music draws from multiple sources and attracts listeners with diverse tastes through his singularly beautiful voice and emotional connection to each song. These fan interviews after his Nashville concert exemplify the diversity and enthusiasm of his fans. He is said to have the largest web site of any RCA/Sony artist and has inspired a book that documents the nature of his effect on a community of fans.

6. He is a boundary-smashing sex symbol, appealing to women and men, straight, gay and bisexual. He may be the first openly gay popular artist whom women unabashedly adore anyway and consider one of the sexiest men alive. Here’s a fascinating essay, “Complex Hotness: The Meanings of Adam Lambert.” Female fans swooned over this acoustic, androgynous version of Broken Open, a song he co-wrote.

7. He is a style icon. Fans and style-makers pay close attention to his fashion choices and beauty. He is often the subject of print and online fashion and beauty shoots. Here are images from a series shot by Robert Sebree.This Jet Root series is stunning too. Fans also respond to artists he admires, such as Muse, Goldfrapp and Miike Snow, often sending their sales soaring.

8. He is articulate and intelligent. In interview after interview, he is disarmingly open, self-aware, thoughtful and funny. He displays considerable business savvy and is deeply engaged in every aspect of his recordings and shows, from creative design to production. Here’s his interview on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

9. He is considerate, polite and humble. As a competitor on American Idol, he was one of the few who unfailingly thanked the band and backup singers after every performance. Fellow Idol contestants credited Adam with helping them. Even after landing on numerous “most beautiful” and “most sexy” lists, he professes surprise and says he was an “ugly duckling” who achieves his beguiling appearance through “smoke and mirrors.” Despite his meteoric rise, he retains a feeling of innocence, wonder and gratitude.

10. He is extremely loyal to his family, friends and fans. He is close to his parents and generous towards his friends, many of whom are talented, struggling artists. He often thanks his fans, stands up for them at times, and has created an intense connection with them through web chats, Twitter and special videos. In this live chat session for fans who contributed to his DonorsChoose.org campaign, which has raised over $300,000 for arts in the public schools, he says “If you have success, you should spread it around.”

LUNA TEEN (August 2010) (Magazine from ARGENTINA!)




http://adamlamberttv.blogspot.com/2010/08/new-interview-in-arizona-adam-talks.html

Adam Lambert has had an interesting start in show biz since his stint on American Idol. With his fan base now being aptly named 'Glamily', the boy couldn't get dressed in the morning without a pound of glitter on his face. While he tends to be controversial to some and overdone to others, Adam doesn't understand why his hair cuts are news worthy.

He plays a show in Tempe, Arizona tonight and sat down with The Arizona Republic to answer their questions.

On creating For Your Entertainment: "...a lot of people don't realize that we put the album together in three months, which is a very quick turnaround, all things considered. Given that and the fact that I was on tour with American Idol at the same time while I was recording, I think it's pretty amazing. I really wanted the album to be as diverse as the styles that I explored on "Idol." And yet, what was really important to me was to make something that was current and something that would be commercially viable. You know, this is a business and an art form," said Adam.

On Lady Gaga: "I think we have similar backgrounds. She did some theater when she was younger and ended up running around with the club kids in New York. And I'd been doing theater since I was a kid and working professionally throughout my 20s in LA. And then I started exploring that whole underground crazy-club-kid culture. So yeah, I think we do kind of come from a similar place, and some of our influences are also the same. I wish I could play piano like her..."

On his dramatic stage presence: "That's kind of part of what I do. But there's a middle section in the concert where I literally sit on a stool and I have my guitar player playing acoustic. And that's just as much a part of me as all the smoke and mirrors and the costumes," Lambert said.

Seen here performing at The Beach at the Mandalay Bay Resort Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada July 31st, it's good to know that Adam Lambert isn't all smoke and mirrors. I want to know that the humping people on stage are the real deal. And thank heavens for that!

Adam trên báo Canadian yearbooks:




"THIS IDOL ISN'T IDLE. It's hard to believe that it was just last year when Adam Lambert grabbed second place in the eighth season of American Idol. With his flamboyant costumes and his tightly choreographed dance moves, Lambert asks Whataya Want From Me? But he already knows the answer, and he delivers. As his debut album explains, he does it all For Your Entertainment. And he does it with style."
