Adam Lambert Week – June 24-30, 2012
*****LAST DAY!!! $17,000 LEFT TO RAISE!!****
Glambertinas help in every way they can! New fundraiser from our friend Bonnie aka AdamsBonBon @bonniedesa
These wonderful bracelets are going fast!
Thanks to everyone who has made donations so far! I still have a few Trespassing bangle bracelets leftover from ones I made for the Six Flags event that I attended. They are handmade from polymer clay with the black and yellow/gold colors of the new album. I will continue to offer them to fans in exchange for a donation of $10 for each bracelet ordered to Charity:Water to help make our goal.
Just email email@example.com that you will be making a donation and I will set one aside. When you have made the donation, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the size and your mailing address. To figure your approximate size, take a strip of paper and wrap it around your knuckle area, making a tight fist with your thumb on the inside (it doesn’t need to be exact — I just want to make sure what I send you won’t easily slip off). Fold the strip where the ends meet and measure it. (I have small hands and wrists and mine measured 8 1/4″.)

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Billboard - Adam Lambert Talks Gay Pride, Being a Reluctant Role Model: Video “Lambert describes his latest album “Trespassing,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in May, as a “post-gay statement” that addresses issues of life and love through a universal lens that everyone — not just LGBT listeners — can relate to. Still, Lambert says that he’s not wholly at ease with the gay icon status that has been thrust on him.”
ABC - Adam Lambert Will Remember Gigs with Queen “for the Rest of My Life” “Adam also sees the Queen team-up as an educational experience. “I…think that I’m gonna learn a lot from it,” he tells ABC News Radio. “You know, working with [Queen]…. these guys have been in the business a long time and they’ve seen a lot and they’ve…been through time and trends…I think there’s something really magical about that.” Queen songs are among the most difficult rock tunes to sing, because of their intricate arrangements and wide vocal range. So, are there any Queen songs he’s just not going to attempt to do? Lambert laughs, “There are a few that are daunting, let me tell ya! And then there’s some that I’ve sung many times before. So, I’m excited for the challenge.”
TheMoscowNews – On stage with his idols: Queen with Adam Lambert Interview. ”Q: What do you think people are expecting from your concerts with Queen and why? Old hits or some new songs? A: “We are going to do a lot of greatest hits, that’s what people want, it’s going to be a great show.”“

PopCrush - SELENA GOMEZ, ADAM LAMBERT + KARMIN SNAG MTV O MUSIC AWARDS “Out of 11 nominees, Lambert took home the Must Follow Artist on Twitter.

He filmed an acceptance speech in which he thanked his beloved followers, telling them, “I wouldn’t be able to win this without you guys. You know how much I love you, you know how much I love you on Twitter,” he gushed. “I love that we can tweet back and forth and that I can see what you guys are thinking, what you guys are feeling and that I can share my feelings with you.” Awww, Adam!

Adam Lambert Shows Off His ‘Hot Stuff’ (Video) by Renee Snyder Adam Lambert performed a tribute to Donna Summer on Sunday when he sang “Hot Stuff” as part of his set in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Adam was the headline act for Alice Radio’s Summerthing event and performed 11 songs for a 60-minute set. Other songs were mostly from his new album, including the latest single, Never close Our Eyes.
‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert performance, Casey Abrams stream ”Adam Lambert on “Graham Norton” – We’ve been talking about this appearance for days, but on Friday night Adam’s segment on the BBC One show ended up airing — it started with music, and it ended up with most of Adam’s actual interview getting hijacked.”
Adam Lambert is Our New Featured Artist for July 2012! “American superstar Adam Lambert announces that his highly anticipated album ‘Trespassing’ is released in the UK on July 2nd, and the first UK single to be released from it will be ‘Never Close Our Eyes’, on June 24th. ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ is an upbeat dancefloor smash written by Bruno Mars that will get even the most reluctant on the dance floor. With it’s high energy chorus, and Lambert’s impressive vocals, it’s sure to be a summer smash.”
BBC – Adam Lambert “Trespassing” Review- “An album of two halves, but with some truly tasty highlights… The first half of Trespassing offers a smorgasbord of succulent up-tempo pop. There are a couple of derivative cuts, but the highlights are tasty enough to compensate…Only Broken English competes with the pop thrills of the first half. Beginning with a reference to the Tower of Babel, it just gets more ridiculous, climaxing with a breakdown that sounds like opera meets dubstep. However, even when his material sags, Lambert is a compelling presence: a likeable pop peacock with a vocal range Justin Hawkins might envy.”
EL Magazine - July 2012 albums “…even if Mercury spent his career hiding his homosexuality, his vision of rock’n roll was informed by the same campy regard for flamboyance that characterizes most gay-identified pop culture. It’s what made Queen’s brand of rock unique, and during his American Idol appearances and on his first album Lambert demonstrated the same theatrical flair in his own approach to rock. He’s also a technically better singer than Mercury ever was, so it’s disappointing that his sophomore album leans so heavily on production.”
Flecking Records Review: Trespassing – Adam Lambert We asked you guys to help us review Adam Lambert’s new album, and you delivered!
