Hot off the Web – From VH1 Adam Lambert Talks About His Inspiration For The Glam Nation Tour. A great blog post in which Adam offers a wealth of detail about the thinking that went into the concept for his show.
The Glam Nation starship has blasted off! Adam’s fans will be stretched to their limits trying to stay on top of all the concert footage, photos and stories. Unless you are a more highly evolved being like Katesistergood, who has taken a vow of celibacy and will refrain from Adamgazing until June 24, when she plans to lose her tour virginity at Foxwoods. We’ll see how long she lasts. We don’t intend to cast cruel temptations in her path, but we would be remiss in our duties if we did not compile our favorite concert documentation for our readers’ delectation. Here we go:

TOP 10 THINGS I WONT LEAVE HOME WITHOUT WHEN GOING ON TOUR:
From VH1 Posted
1. My iPhone! I cant leave home without my phone to keep in contact with my friends and family. It also holds all of my music!
2. My computer, of course. This is where I get to keep my creative juices flowing and I get to note a lot of my ideas. This is also where I get to keep in touch with my fans!
3. A flip cam. This allows me to capture moments behind the scenes to share with my fans!
4.A good book. With so much traveling and time on a bus, it is great to have a good read with me.
5. Nail Polish! Gotta keep my nails neat!
6. Journal. With this, I can write lyrics for any ideas of songs that I have as well as take notes on all of these amazing experiences that I am getting to participate in.
7. A hat! When I don’t want to do my hair, my hat always comes in handy.
8. Sharpies! Gotta have lots of these so I can sign autographs for fans!
9. Liquid Chlorophyll. Greens are so vital to good health!
10. My jewelry. I cant leave home without my accessories.
Adam Lambert Official Store – posters, T-shirts, CD. Great to finally have this! Hope to see more women’s fashions and some jewelry in the future!!
Update from ainow: “Attention Adam Lambert fans! According to an update from VH1, the “If I Had You” music video will NOT debut tomorrow… VH1.com: Tough news to share with you guys. We just got word that Adam and his team are putting the finishing touches on the “If I Had You” video (yay!), but this means that the debut of the video is going to have to be bumped back until next week.“
Here’s a photo from the video shoot, with the winning caption from our contest

MTV Poll – Who’s the hottest American Idol ever (of the guys, that is)? You know what to do!!
VH1′s Posted Promo Video – Ask Adam questions online; he’ll try to answer them!
We Have a Winner
Washington Post – Celebritology 2.0 The same-sex kiss gag: Yeah, it’s getting old – “And yet out of all of these examples — and I am sure there are even more I didn’t mention — the only one that caused any legitimate controversy was Adam Lambert’s man-on-man kiss during last year’s American Music Awards. And that’s probably because, as Lambert asserted at the time, he’s actually openly gay. Watching a gay guy kiss another guy, apparently, isn’t nearly as entertaining for some people as watching two dudes like Ben Affleck and Kevin Smith do it.”
LA Times Idol Tracker – Summer tours may be in a slump, but are Idols recession-proof? “Adam is booked at venues like the Pacific Amphitheatre with a capacity of 8,500, and has already sold out several dates…Bongiovanni contends that Adam and this tour package, which also includes fellow 19 Entertainment artist Orianthi, is a unique case. “Adam Lambert is so distinctly different than the other artists,” he said. “Normally, you don’t recommend that somebody new go out and headline big rooms because you’re setting yourself up for potential failure, but if he’s able to fill all these places, I would call it a big success.””
The Times Leader, Wilkes-Barre – Lambert brings ‘Glam’ to the Kirby REVIEW “RCA, Lambert’s record label, declared the concert off limits to all media outlets on Wednesday, citing the facts that Lambert is a young performer and the Kirby show was the first date on his first-ever solo headlining tour…Judging by the first 20 minutes, which is all I got to see before leaving to write this report, the record label had nothing to worry about as the singer owned the stage from the very first moments, giving the packed theater exactly what it wanted.”
June 9 – You know we are huge admirers of Orianthi (see our previous post about this amazing guitarist), so we were happy to see this great Beatweek article. She talks about her new album, Believe (II), released today.
Orianthi: the Beatweek interview – “… within the world of professional musicians, Orianthi is one of the most sought-after lead guitarists in the industry and she’s played on new releases from artists ranging from Adam Lambert to Mary J Blige in the past year alone…she debuted her live take of Prince’s “Lets Go Crazy” on the first night of Glam Nation over the weekend. And yes, she’s already collaborated with Prince in the studio as well…Speaking of the Glam Nation tour, it’s Adam Lambert’s baby, and he told me back in April that the tour is going to be all about atmosphere and interactivity for him. So what does Ori have planned for her tour set? “Nothing too extravagant. Didn’t bring elephants or pyro. We’re gonna put on a rock show. We’ve got lights going on, we’ve got some colors going on, extended guitar solos. We just have fun on the stage, and I think that’s the most important thing. ”

Adam and His Eves – Liz Smith on Fox Television - We don’t agree with her assessment of where Adam’s career is going, and don’t think he courts controversy, but we like what she has to say about On the Meaning of Adam Lambert! (Juneau’s husband objected to being called “perfectly normal.”)
