HEART OF PURE GOLD
Adam visits Jasmine at Boston Children’s Hospital
Posted by Sonia Bennett today, from Adam’s visit on August 20, 2010
Here’s Juneau’s Reflection from that visit:
Just visited Children’s Hospital in Boston. Good reminder to appreciate life’s value. Those kids have such incredible spirits in the face of illness. I’m inspired.
I don’t know why Adam’s tweet about visiting Children’s Hospital of Boston has affected me so deeply. I’m haunted by the thought of what he was seeing and feeling there, and am feeling weirdly connected because I’ve been to CHB so many times. Last time, it was to visit a brave two-year-old girl and her two dads at the cancer ward… And then Adam’s tweet later that day: “Another circus, another show! I think I’m going a wee bit crazy – as many touring artists do. It’s a good crazy though. Gonna start writing some tunes w this sacred lack of reality giving me new perspective.” I can’t help but wonder if he was reacting to the emotions stirred by being among real, everyday heroes, the doctors, nurses and above all, the kids. Adam, you have a huge heart and rare talent with the power to move millions. One reason I have been so captivated and find myself (still to my daily amazement) following your every move is that, early as it still is in your career, you have the spirit and intelligence to take your gifts and change the world – just by not being afraid to be you.

LOOK WHO LOVES ADAM
TO RUSSIA, WITH LOVE
Press Release: Queen + Adam Lambert Will Rock Moscow “Having last week announced a special one-off UK concert performing with Adam Lambert at the Sonisphere Festival, Knebworth on July 7, legendary rock band Queen has announced it will play an additional earlier date with the singer when Queen and Lambert appear at Moscow’s Olympic Arena on June 30th. These two shows are the only concerts presently planned for Queen and Lambert in 2012. ”
Here’s the venue - HUGE!!
Interview of Bakeev Eldar, the organizer of the concert @adamlambert & @QueenWillRock in Moscow at the Russian News Service radio (translation thanks to @AdamLambertRUAB): “There is a festival, where they will play a concert. And he said: “We’re going to do a concert nearby London, and have long thought, what else to do and which city in Europe, the choice fell on Paris, Madrid and Moscow.” ..Fans asked him very hard… I saw Queen & Adam collaboration on EMA. This is a man very close to Freddie. He inwardly, internally very close to Freddie. He is also a great expert, and he has the same sexual orientation. And he does not hide and I think that’s a plus, because it is a kind of disinhibition, very nervous, deep penetration into the material. And yet, I really like that he keeps his distance. It just shows that he is not going to copy Freddie. That’s what I like. He is very respectful for the musical material…we are waiting for a big concert for 26 thousand spectators..tickets will be available soon. I think that will be on 5 or 9 March”

Newser - Off-camera moments at the Oscars can be as interesting as what’s on TV “While the Oscar people are handing out their awards at Hollywood and Highland, a smiling, chatty Katy Perry is over at the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s viewing party, looking single and ready to mingle.

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Just Jared - Adam Lambert Covers ‘Fault Magazine’ Spring 2012 “On things his fans don’t know about him:“I’m a crazy hedonistic rebel who wants to liberate the masses. There are songs on the album that embrace my rock n roll spirit and my love of club culture. Yet, underneath it all I’m not always as strong and confident as I may seem. I work hard to project pride and poise when faced with judgement and heartache. That is how I cope.”
Sugarscape – Amazing New Adam Lambert Pictures Fault Magazine “When you get inside the magazine, Adam’s hair is presented on maybe the most epic scale we’ve ever seen it, which still doesn’t distract from the gorgeous puppy he’s moodily snuggling up to in his sexy Fagan-from-Oliver-Twist-gloves.”
Confessions of a Ticket Scalper: Billboard’s Candid Q&A “It’s out of control these days. I’ve been in this game since it was invented. I made my money, and this business is on the downside for me now. One of these days [brokers] are going to piss off the wrong people in the prosecutor’s office and they’re going to go after them criminally and make it stick.”

MTV - Adam Lambert Early Recordings To Be Released Lawsuit clears way for release of music recorded before Lambert’s ‘American Idol’ run. ”You already knew Adam Lambert was going to release his second major-label album, Trespassing next month. But did you know that it is one oftwo CDs the former “American Idol” runner-up will be dropping this year? According to The Hollywood Reporter, the second release, Beg For Mercy, is not necessarily one that Lambert wants out in the world, but it will see the light of day thanks to the settling of a lawsuit.”

The Advocate – George Clooney Interview Q: “The gay rumor has followed you for years.” A: “I think it’s funny, but the last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, “These are lies!” That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community. I’m not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing. My private life is private, and I’m very happy in it. Who does it hurt if someone thinks I’m gay?”
NME - Adam Lambert – ‘I’m Not Trying To Outdo Freddie Mercury’ ““I’m definitely listening to the vocal parts and I have been doing research, I’ve been watching things, but it’s very important for me as an artist for my own integrity to make sure I’m being myself onstage. I have no intention of mimicking or copying or… I feel like that would be insulting to the fans and to the band to get up there and try to copy Mr Mercury. It’s a very delicate situation and I wanna treat it with with the utmost respect. For me it’s about trying to understand his initial intention vocally and musically, and pay respect to that.”
Adamssparklyswedes - Adam Lambert in QX March 2012 no. 198 ”I have been asked to sign all different kinds of body parts, and few times it has been parts that have never seen the sun. But even I have boundaries… and I can say that the signature got placed above the equator at least (laughs).“

NileRodgers.com - I Can’t F-ing Believe It ”Yesterday I played on the Scissor Sisters song that I’d heard the day before but couldn’t record on it because I was booked for an important meeting.

Now, I’m writing, performing, and playing on more records than I have in quite some time.”

But on February 18, the same Colwel counsel that believed a settlementwould be reached in January was replaced in the case. Joseph Lee Golden has now been replaced by Edwin F. McPherson…”
