PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Gather - Adam Lambert Extends Thanksgiving Wishes, Fans Thank Him Back “Adam Lambert s a celebrity who not only wows people with his amazing voice, but also inspires them with his kind spirit and charitable giving. Adam may have wished his fans a happy Thanksgiving, but it is all those who have been part of his journey into superstardom that are most thankful!”
Idolator - American Music Awards 2011: The 6 Most Memorable Moments “Okay, okay — Adam didn’t perform, exactly. In fact, he was simply charged with the task of introducing OneRepublic. Still, given the unnecessary media attention paid to his AMAs performance two years ago, the Glam One’s hilariously wink-wink quip (”Wow! Has is been two years already? Time flies.”) was delivered with just the right amount of tongue-in-cheekiness and Lambert sass.”
ABC News Radio - Adam Lambert Says New CD “Trespassing” Is “a Little Bit Evolved” - ”The fact that the songs are “honest and real” doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to dance to the new album. Adam says he’s been very influenced by the dance music that’s currently topping the charts, as well as by dubstep, the British dance sound that you can hear on Rihanna‘s new single “We Found Love.”"
EW - Adam Lambert talks ‘Joe Zee’ guest stint, evolved fashion tastes, and new album ‘Trespassing’ — EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS ”EW caught up with Lambert and he gave us the scoop on what’s coming next…I was really attracted to flashier, tackier fashion. I think there’s a beauty in tacky fashion.“ (Yes, that’s what’s called Style – the ability to pull off fashions that on lesser mortals would look ridiculous.)
“We’ve been trying to take great songs and then as far as the production and the sonic nature of them, we try to give them a funk sensibility. I think it’s a really cool new sound.” Oooh, cannot wait to hear it!
OUT Magazine – Catching up with Charles Busch - “I met the peerless Adam. That was my whole goal of the evening. It’s easy for me to sit back and complain that there’s no one to replace all the greats, the stars that have passed. But when I saw Adam Lambert, I was so excited about it. He’s openly gay and sexy. It’s outrageous!”
The Lambrits - Translation of Sauli’s post about the OUT100 gala and AMAs plus Adam’s video greeting to Finnish fans.
Daily Mail - Gay high school student, 16, suspended by principal for wearing make-up in class - Here’s the news item Adam tweeted about. “An openly gay 16-year-old high school student was given a three-day suspension for wearing make-up in class. Kasey Landrum was censured by the principal at Lexington High School in Tennessee after being told he had violated the school’s dress code.”
Disco Rodeo – Adam Full Circle “He more than survived. And to prove it, he walked onto the AMA stage last night in most of the same suit to the sound of applause. And the circle was completed. Maybe next year he’ll perform from his new album, even win something, but that will be its own thing.And with this, and even with an extra problem, the road to Trespassing seems smooth and right, no baggage from the past its way.”
Jezebel – The Good, The Bad & The Incredibly Ugly Outfits Of The American Music Awards See what they have to say about Adam’s look on the red carpet.
The Hollywood Reporter - Chris Brown, Adam Lambert and a $500,000 Performance: AMAs EP on What to Expect Sunday “But with music’s share of controversial characters, the show’s producers can also be put in the precarious position of defending art, oftentimes after a performance, as in the case of Adam Lambert, who got into a heap of hot water when he spontaneously kissed his male bass player during a 2009 performance…”
Music Messiah - Adam Lambert And Dr. Luke To Strike Gold With “Better Than I Know Myself” ”Dr. Luke will give Adam another shot at superstardom by producing the lead single, “Better Than I Know Myself”. Frequent partners in crime Cirkut and Ammo co-produced the song, while Claude Kelly helped with the songwriting. A hit waiting to happen? I think so!“
Hollywood Reporter - Adam Lambert Returns to 2011 AMAs as Presenter; Producer Says He ‘Was Never Banned’ ““Adam Lambert was never banned from the show,” says American Music Awards executive producer Larry Kleinemphatically while eyeing a chair on the aisle of row two, audience left (see photo). That’s where the American Idolrunner-up will be seated on Sunday night, just behind Heidi Klum. Lambert will also be presenting an award, marking his first return to the ABC show where he sparked a wave of controversy.”
Huffington Post - Out 100: Adam Lambert, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kathy Griffin Among Those Honored At Out Magazine Bash “Though he’s been outspoken about the struggles he’s faced in his own relationship with the LGBT community, Lambert said he was impressed by the overall diversity, not just among the crowd but within popular culture as a whole. “I think that we’re being represented in much more diverse ways, which I think is very important in trying to help people understand what it is to be a part of the gay community,” said Lambert. “I’m just really excited to see the visibility increase in the media especially.”"
Billboard - Adam Lambert Announces New Album ”Adam Lambert took to his Twitter page to announce the release of his next album. The “American Idol” alumni says his next release will be “Trespassing,” due next spring. The album includes a title track he co-wrote with Pharrell Williams, Lambert also revealed.”
Wall Street Journal Blog - Out Magazine Honors Individuals at OUT100 “Out Magazine held its annual OUT100 event at Skylight SoHo Thursday night to celebrate 100 honorees for their influence in the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. Among the special guests were comedian Kathy Griffin, singer Adam Lambert and actors Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Alan Cumming.”
Dick Clark Productions – Lambert to present on AMAs! ”‘American Idol’ star and pop phenom Adam Lambert has been confirmed as a presenter for the 2011 American Music Awards!Adam Lambert’s second album Trespassing comes out this spring, Tune in to the 2011 American Music tomorrow night at 8 p.m. ET, only on ABC!”

AMA’s TONIGHT 8PM ET/7PM CT
Adam was elegant and spectacular as he arrived on the red carpet tonight. And he did not disappoint. His outfit made a statement, and not only fashionwise. He wore the same tie, vest and trousers from his 2009 AMA performance. This time he contrasted the silvery metallic fabric with a snow white shirt and black frock coat lining in electric blue. On his feet, the same black patent crocodile cowboy boots that he sported in 2009. So many message rolled into that outfit!
Adam was merely introducing his frequent collaborator Ryan Tedder’s band One Republic, but from the roar of the AMA audience, you would have thought he was going to perform. Fans watching from around the world no doubt felt their hearts swell to bursting at the reception Adam received. He delivered his short, sweet speech with a wry grin. We missed the sexy and the ninja roll. No doubt he will be performing on that stage a year from now.
And check out Rolling Stone’s photos from the AMAs (no Adam)

Here’s the true story of how this Salon and our radio show all began, on the ephemeral pages of a web site, which evolved into our book On the Meaning of Adam Lambert. We said to each other, “This is crazy!”, and then, “What’s the worst that could happen?” Well, we discovered that the cyberworld is not always benign (see Slings and Arrows), but we are so glad we took the leap. We are having the time of our lives. Climb aboard!

ADAM’S SECOND ALBUM CENTRAL
Speculating ’bout Song Titles: CarterMatt.com – More possible Adam Lambert song titles surface “As you can see in this screengrab created by the user, you can see two new songs in addition to “Outlaws of Love” that list Adam as a writer alongside BC Jean and Rune Westberg — one entitled “Burning the Pages,” and another called “Get Over It…It’s far too quick to assume that these titles will stick, or that these songs are even going to end up on the album.” And another song titled ‘Full Moon’ showed up in ASCAP’s database.
