ADAM TO SOUTH AMERICA CAMPAIGN
Our friend @ADAMGASMIC from Colombia has started a campaign to bring Adam’s music to South America. She contacted Sony, which told her they would ship CDs only if she can show that the support is there. She needs 1,000 followers for @playbogota. You don’t need to be in South America, so just go and find the Twitter account and click “Follow”!! Let’s see if we can reach her goal by the weekend!! She’s an incredible Glambert. Last night she produced a radio show devoted to “Trespassing”.
ADAM IN NYC
New York Post - Follow the fleet “Katy Perry was ready to party with Adam Lambert after serenading the troops Wednesday night. The singer, wearing an American flag dress, gave a performance for sailors at Pier 9 in Brooklyn as part of Fleet Week, and even pulled one lucky uniformed cadet onstage for a kiss. Later, Perry went to the Dream Downtown to meet Lambert at a table at upstairs lounge PH-D, where the two partied until 3:30 a.m. While there, Perry jumped in the DJ booth to request Rihanna songs.”

NPR/WRVO - The End Of ‘Idol’: There Are No More Songs Left To Be Sung Very interesting article! “Idol and shows like it have significantly contributed to what the theorists Charles Leadbeater and Paul Miller called “the Pro-Am Revolution“: the rise of a new creative class pursuing passions on a freshly built bridge between hobby and career. Artists have always been cultural entrepreneurs, but as “pro-ams” they shift their trajectory, finding ways to expose and establish themselves before partnering with a bigger machine. E.L. James, the author of Fifty Shades of Grey, is a Pro-Am. So is Mark Zuckerberg. So, I’d argue, are the most interesting Idols and Voice alums, like Adam Lambert and Juliet Simms.”
New York Post - Sony star power: Poised to steal music crown from Universal “When Sony Music chief Doug Morris left rival Universal Music Group last year for his current gig, he wanted nothing more than to dethrone the perennial US king of album sales. The 73-year-old executive may not have thought it would happen this fast. With yesterday’s news that Billboard named Adam Lambert’s “Trespassing” the best-selling CD in its debut week, Sony is poised to knock the king from its throne.”
Huffington Post - Adam Lambert’s ‘Trespassing’ Makes No. 1 Debut, Becomes First Openly Gay Male Artist To Top Charts ”…But Lambert’s chart triumph is also historic, as it marks the first time an openly gay male performer accomplishes that feat. As AfterElton notes, “Other gay performers such as Elton John and George Michael have hit No. 1, but only before they came out, and they haven’t managed that honor since.”"
LA Times - Adam Lambert’s chart-topper ‘Trespassing’ is a high and a low ”When Season 11 of “American Idol” comes to a close in a few hours, no one should feel too sorry for the runner-up. One need only to look to this week’s pop charts for evidence that the “American Idol” crown isn’t a requisite to cultivating a fanbase. The theatrical pop-rocker Adam Lambert finished second on “American Idol” during its eighth season, and this week he earned his first No. 1 album in “Trespassing.”"
Entertainment Weekly - Album Sales: Adam Lambert tops the Billboard charts, beating out Adele and Carrie Underwood ”Adam Lambert’s passionate “Glamily” helped propel his second LP into first place with sales of 77,000 — a strong result for an album that has yet to spawn a significant hit (“Better Than I Know Myself” sputtered on the chart, and followup “Never Close Our Eyes” is slowly climbing).”
