PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
BBC News - Adam Lambert: Ready to rock the UK “Adam Lambert first came to the world’s attention in 2009 when he was a runner-up on American Idol. Known for his flamboyant style and vast vocal range, the singer is beginning his assault on the UK.”
Pressparty meets Adam Lambert (part 1) “Trespassing’ is Lambert’s sophomore offering and has attracted serious attention around the globe, as well as rave reviews from some of the most well-respected publications in the world. It will officially be released in the UK on July 2.”
Pressparty meets Adam Lambert (part 2) - WITH AUDIO “The superstar has previously spoken about the pressure he feels to be a figurehead for the LGBT community, but during a brand new interview with Pressparty, he opened up about his hopes for the future where sexuality is concerned and admitted it would be great to eventually live in a world where “it doesn’t matter”, but he can still discuss it openly.”
ABC Action News - Adam Lambert & Britney Spears are sexiest pop stars ”Gay pop star ADAM LAMBERT and BRITNEY SPEARS have topped a new Billboard.com poll to find the sexiest male and female in music.”
Gather - Adam Lambert Treats Fans to Free Music ” Adam is also doing his part to share music from his new album in the UK and today offered fans a free song download. He tweeted, “UK Glamberts I have a treat for you, I’m giving away #BetterThanIKnowMyself for FREE through @AmazonUK just click : /smarturl.it/BTIKMfree“ Fans in the US will probably recognize Better Than I Know Myself as Adam’s first single off his sophomore album. However for UK fans, this free song is more of a bonus, because his official first single in the UK is Never Close Our Eyes. Adam Lambert’s US fans also get a treat this week, because Trespassing is featured as Amazon’s album of the week from 6/12-6/18 for only $5.00. Even if you already have the album, this sale is a great opportunity to gift it to friends and convert more people to become Adam Lambert fans.“
AOL Music - Adam Lambert, ‘The F Word’ Interview: Being a Gay Role Model Was ‘Not a Responsibility I Ever Signed Up for’ “Adam Lambert kicks off Music Choice’s new series, “The F Word,” where celebrities get candid about the ups and downs of fame. The 30-year-old superstar reflects on his meteoric rise to super stardom, from “American Idol” to becoming the first openly gay man with a No. 1 album on the Billboard charts. But, Glambert says the life of the rich and famous isn’t always as glam as his fabulous nickname may suggest. Aside from the lack of privacy, the singer admits he struggled to accept his unsolicited title as a gay role model.”
BrianMay.com - ADAM LAMBERT SET TO ROCK WITH QUEEN Reposts Globe and Mail story and video from Tuesday! “Adam Lambert says he’s ‘honored’ and ‘excited’ to be reuniting with Queen this summer in London, and looks forward to performing some of his favorite songs by the iconic British band.”
NZ Herald - Scott Kara: Reflections of an ‘old fart’ “…in the last month or so I have undergone a seismic shift in my music listening tastes. I am getting into music I haven’t listened to for a long time (in some cases more than 20 years) and things I never thought I would listen to (honestly, the new Adam Lambert album is really very good).”
Yahoo Music - Happy 10th Birthday, ‘American Idol’! “To celebrate the show’s big double-digit birthday, I’m dusting off and updating my list of my top 10 “Idol” performances ever…
1) Adam Lambert – “Ring Of Fire” This was probably the most polarizing performance on “Idol,” and definitely the most exciting. Love him or hate him, Adam knew how to get people’s attention, sometimes get people downright angry, and make those who were faint of heart and/or feeble of mind squirm in their support hose…”Ring Of Fire” is the one that really put him on the glittery map.” Juneau of course agrees 200%.
Billboard.biz - ’American Idol’ Tenth Anniversary: 345 Billboard No. 1s, From Kelly Clarkson to Phillip Phillips Adam Lambert has had 9 Number Ones on the Billboard charts, including in Dance and Adult Contemporary.

Chris Jepson’s Blog - 09 June 2012 : Adam Lambert – live in London (PHOTOS) “Local fans were thrilled to learn that he would be returning to the club again this year and have been eagerly awaiting the show since it was announced last month and Adam clearly did not disappoint. One fan in attendance tweeted, “Still amazed by @adamlambert’s performance in G-A-Y London!!!!!!!!” Someone else tweeted, “Another Adam Lambert pic from G-A-Y tonight. As well as shaking his booty really well this boy can SING http://pic.twitter.com/Jd3QmK20“”
The F Word interview - “I don’t think anyone realizes what they’re asking for when they become famous…’Oh we loved you back then’… like I’m dead. I’m like “you can love me now..?’ It’s really easy in the entertainment industry to focus on what everyone else wants. One of my big things is being honest.” Is it our imagination or do we detect Adam with a slight lisp in this video? It sounds like he’s wearing invisible braces…

andPop – Amam Lambert, he’s a good boy kind of… (VIDEO) “Despite his love for a good party, believe it or not, Adam Lambert wasn’t always a wild one. In fact, he was quite well behaved in his earlier years. In this edition of “Way Back When” @Jordans_life talks to Adam about his first kiss with tongue, smoking cigarettes and sneaking out of the house.” He hasn’t actually trespassed! “I was always afraid of getting in trouble.” “We all love BJ”

The Sacramento Bee - ’Rock of Ages’ director Shankman a projectile from 1980s L.A. scene “Q. That ’80s rock is not easy for a guy to sing … A.

Adam even Tweeted about his excitement!“
New York Post - My disco New York: Nile Rodgers “Disco pioneer Nile Rodgers, 59, ruled New York night life during his band Chic’s chart-topping heyday in the late ’70s. As he recounted in his 2011 memoir, “Le Freak: An Upside Down Story of Family, Disco, and Destiny,” New York in the 1970s was an anything-goes world. Rodgers, who makes a guest appearance on Adam Lambert’s new song “Shady,” happily followed that world as far as it would take him. This is his disco-era New York.” OMG, Juneau used to go clubbing at Limelight with her GBF, and she has also kept her clothes from Charivari (but she never saw any hanky panky in the dressing rooms, LOL!)
Sauli Koskinen’s interview with YleX Weekend Lifestyle Slot Soundcloud link and English translation by @anupoukka. “I somehow can take more risques (in style) in LA than here. I don’t know what it is but I’ve always have been the same. When I go abroad I can try out new things and be more adventurous. More so than in Finland. It has changed, but my style changes – let’s say – every year. It moves ahead or to some other direction. It’s always interesting to look at old photos and see for yourself that your style has changed. And then you think what the hell was I wearing 2 years ago. And the point was that in US I can dress a bit more bold than here.”
Best of last week
Fuse TV - ADAM LAMBERT ON SINGING WITH QUEEN BUT STAYING TRUE TO HIMSELF “”Freddie—one of the things that made him so brilliant—is you always understood what he was trying to communicate by the way his voice sounded and his phrasing and his energy,” Lamberts says. “My goal is to communicate the same idea. I’m going to be myself up there, but pay respect in a tasteful way.”"
The Guardian - Adam Lambert interview: ‘I wasn’t being controlled’ “Lambert’s not overawed by the challenge [of singing with Queen]. “I’ve sung other people’s music all my life,” he says. “It’s what I did on American Idol, and I think one of the things I was known for was making them my own. I am incredibly inspired by Freddie Mercury, and there are things you can’t not do when you’re singing one of his songs because they are part of the song, and he wrote those songs with the boys. I find my own moments though.”" He also comments about fan fiction.
