Examiner Matt Carter – Adam Lambert one week away from projected 800,000 markOver the course of 2011, Adam Lambert has managed to continue to sell albums for his debut “For Your Entertainment” at a pretty steady rate — which is even more impressive once you consider that the guy has not had a new single on the radio in America at any point this year.

MTV’s 10 on Top - Saturday, February 19, at 11:30AM ET, this weekly show offers a countdown of “the Top 10 most texted and talked about young celebs at the moment. Their ranking will be influenced by the audience – based on the chatter they elicit, and the headlines they create each week, as well as the amount of buzz about their upcoming projects and events.” Adam came in at #4.

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS

 

Adam goes platinum at the Grammy's - diamond ring

IS-Tutka – Video (in Finnish) interview with Sauli. We now know how to say “Bora Bora” in Finnish. Rinnuninnu’s blog has translated some highlights. “In the video Sauli also mentions that they will keep their fingers crossed for some special person to win an Emma.”

Ring-o-Blog – Adam Lambert’s Iceberg Platinum Ring From Diamond in the Rough, the stone weighs 11.97 carats. Any fan who buys it will be taking “Glam broke” to a new level!
Rocco’s Pop Revolution – Adam Lambert Captivates Rocco For 4 Minutes And 32 Seconds “”I’m not even a huge Adam Lambert fan but I just sat in a trance watching a clip of him singing “Sleepwalker” from his Glamnation DVD… I’ve never sat still for that long in my life. I literally did not move. I think he performed voodoo on me. Can that happen through the internet??”
Rolling Stone – I’m a Belieber: The 11 Greatest Superfan Communities Glamberts come in at #5, after fans of Justin Bieber, Clay Aiken, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj. “Glamberts are a lot like Claymates – only with a lot of glitter and without delusions that their idol is  heterosexual. And unlike Aiken, Adam Lambert has many young fans. Some of them had never seen anything as fabulous and glitzy as Lambert until the eighth season of American Idol and instantly fell in love.”

On Top – Adam Lambert’s Bass Guitarist Tommy Joe Ratliff Plans More Gay Advocacy
“I was very excited to do it. I’m amazed with how it turned out and I was floored by the reaction…I have a lot of respect for what they’re doing and will do whatever I can to help out.””

Rinnuninnu’s Blog posts scans and translations of Finnish tabloid coverage

GQ Japan – LGBT movers and shakers (scan)
– Adam is #22 in their list of “Power Gay 33″ (Thanks to J_Lambs: GQ JAPAN 2011年4月号「特集:LGBTが世界を動かす THE POWER OF LGBT」記事中のTHE MOST INFLUENTAL GAY 33(世界をリードする最強パワーゲイ33人!)にADAMさん♪

The Hollywood Reporter – Boy George Talks Culture Club Reunion, Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert “He came to a party I had in London and was lovely. I think he has a great voice and an incredible range. It’s phenomenal. It’s special. And I think the glam thing adds to that. It gives him an edge…”

Byron Cooke – The Posner tongue dive inspired by Adam Lambert? “Aside from his super tight band, the highlight of Mike’s Melbourne Good Vibes performance was his very “special” brand of audience interaction…and the minute I saw it play out in front of me I thought….IT’S THE FAMOUS ADAM LAMBERT TONGUE DIVE!  I’d seen it personally in Sydney at the Glam Nation Show & YOU can see it here…”

Bay Windows – So they say: Adam Lambert, John Slattery, Nicki Minaj New England’s largest GLBT newspaper takes note of Adam’s recent interview on Canada’s ET: “”[It’s] an amazing opportunity to be able to help people.” – Openly gay “American Idol” alum Adam Lambert said that his fame is a good opportunity to be a gay role model.”

Queerty – Is Adam Lambert Finally Ready To Represent The Gays? More snark and a firestorm of commentary…

Yahoo – Should Adam Lambert Tone it Down for Next Album? “Despite his being one of the most popular “American Idol” contestants in recent history, Adam Lambert‘s post “Idol” success hasn’t been what the record company, critics, or fans expected. While “For Your Entertainment” has slowly climbed to 782,000 domestic sales and over a million worldwide, it’s not the explosive multi-million sales success of “AI” alums Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood. With all the controversy over Adam Lambert‘s outspokenness (on a variety of subjects) and bold displays of glam eroticism, does he need to take a step back? With a new album planned for 2011, should Adam make different choices than the ones he made with “For Your Entertainment?””

    That video “No One Else” left me with tears in my eyes, as it showcased exactly why millions of people have fallen under Adam’s spell and never wish to come out from underneath it, myself included. If anyone wishes to see that there there still is beauty left in this world, take a look at Adam Lambert; he is proof positive that beauty does in fact still exist – he is beauty in itself. Thanks so much for showing this video; I have fallen once again, in love with Adam!!

    YOu are so right DeeDee. I watched the video after reading your comment, and you are right. It is evident how personal, compassionate and caring Adam is from all of the ‘hug’ clips. He really is spreading the love. Shows so much respect for him, that other’s have. The people who have been close enough to get to know him, in whatever forum.
