Australia’s Sunrise TV interviews Adam Lambert (VIDEO) - Might be going to Australia in 3 or 4 months. YouTube below by @TattooJo
Mezamashi TV - Adam Lambert greets fans in Japanese (gulp! Juneau swoons)
The Voice of Russia - Elton John to sing in Kiev against AIDS “Music legends Queen and Elton John will give a show in Kiev to support people with AIDS on June 30 in the run-up to the EURO-2012 finals hosted by Ukraine. This comes from the head of the Anti-AIDS foundation Elena Pinchuk who met with reporters in Kiev on June 7. According to her, the performers will sing for free.”
National Enquirer - BIG GAY WAR: ADAM LAMBERT VS. CLAY AIKEN You know you’re a superstar when this venerable paragon of investigative journalism decides to go after you! “On May 24, Adam, 30, told talk-show host Andy Cohen he “couldn’t think of any” nice things to say about Clay during a game segment of the show. It’s just the latest swipe in the simmering feud that started when Clay blogged in 2009 that he thought one of Adam’s “AI” performances was “contrived, awful and slightly frightening.”
Skylight - MONTE PITTMAN – American Rock Artist and Madonna’s Guitarist “Q. How did you get in contact with Adam Lambert? A. We had mutual friends that put us in contact. I used to play Club Makeup sometimes. It would happen the first Saturday of every month. It was a band led by Xander Smith. It usually had Noah Shain on drums, Abby Travis on bass, and Eric Mayron on keys. There would be a different theme each month. If it were Prince month, everyone dressed like Prince or his band and we would play all Prince songs. There would be a different singer for each song. I asked some of them who they thought was the best singer around and Allan Louis said Adam. Later on Lee Cherry introduced us and we started writing together and started a band called The Citizen Vein. I never liked the name but we had to pick something.”
Koululainen magazine. Via @moominbert – translation of article. ”Adam Lambert was exhausted, so the first songs he wrote were angry. Love brought a note of happiness to his songs. These days, the trendsetter is making music about finding the right one.”
