SIX FLAGS FIESTA!
Adam, very casually dressed this time! In spite of the heat, the man still wears leather – let’s hope the hooded vest is a re-work of the dreaded poncho (spoken through gritted teeth). What to call those shorts? too long, Bermuda shorts? too tight, no cuffs, clam diggers? not rolled up. Perhaps they are the work of some obscure couturier working in New England. They met when Adam was in Providence and ordered them up. Custom-fitted, each thread carefully pulled by hand and trimmed to the exacting specifications of the design. The footwear? Make me miss the medges. Barefoot is always good if he’s hot, wet & sticky.

@mmadamimadamm: Spoke with a pitboss who spoke to head of security. They went ballistic when Adam made fans move to the front. They’ve never had to deal with an artist doing that before. I asked if that means they wouldn’t have him back. He said that they would have him back in a heartbeat because he’s the biggest customer draw they have ever had. Take that SECURITY! LOL!

@adamlambert I swear my song “Chokehold” should be the theme for 50 Shades of Gray. Riiiiight?
Does Adam Lambert’s Song Characterize ’50 Shades of Grey’? by Renee Snyder Would Adam Lambert’s song “Chokehold” be a good theme song for the best-selling novel 50 Shades of Grey? Adam may or may not have read the book, but he at least knows the plot, because today he tweeted, “I swear my song “Chokehold” should be the theme for 50 Shades of Grey. Riiiiight?” Those that have read the book and are familiar with Adam’s song Chokehold probably agree. The book is about an unusual relationship between a young and naïve college student (Ana Steele) and a young entrepreneur (Christian Grey)….read the rest of the article
While it might characterize the books, do you want his song associated with the story? You might want to think about that after reading this hilarious review…..
Katrina Lumsden’s Reviews > Fifty Shades of Grey Ana is just a giant mess of a human being. She’s insecure to the point of it being laughable, ‘klutzy’ (even though she only trips twice in the entire book), and a complete ditz. She’s a virgin (of course) who’s never taken any sexual interest in anyone before. Right. I’m fairly certain there hasn’t been a woman this naive since ’round about 1954. At one point, she thinks putting her hair in pigtails will keep her safe from Christian’s lusty advances. Fuckin’ really? She “flushes” constantly, and on several occasions referred to her hoo-hoo-naughty place as “down there.” Next, we have Christian Grey: Christian is a misogynistic, self-loathing, abusive piece of shit. Apparently, his only redeeming qualities are, in this order; his ridiculous good looks, his money, and his giant penis. The only time Ana seems to like him as a person is when he’s being “lovable”, and those times are few and far between. Most of the time he’s serious, brooding, and threatening. How charming.
I knew from the very first line this wasn’t going to be good….. it’s long but a very entertaining read
Adam Lambert proves a hit with cast of Pretty Little Liars Stars - tweet after US star makes TV cameo. Stars of US TV drama Pretty Little Liars have spoken of their time working with Adam Lambert on the show, showering the Trespassing star with praise for his cameo role. Lambert recently filmed scenes for a Halloween special of the show, and actors on the show took to Twitter after the shoot to speak of their timeworking with the solo star and occasional Queen frontman. ”You’re a doll @adamlambert. Had fun dancing with you x” tweeted actress Ashley Benson, while co-star Lucy Hale said: “@adamlambert I officially love you.” Janel Parrish also spoke of her love for Lambert, saying: “You guys I met Adam Lambert. My life is made”. read the rest…. INTERVIEW: Adam Lambert – On The Gay Thing, American Idol And Taking His Place With Queen Caroline.Frost@huffingtonpost.com Posted: 27/07/2012 12:54
However, in the wake of the rumors that he may serve as judge on Season 12 of American Idol, the MCL blog has been inundated with discussions over Adam’s possible new role on the series that catapulted him to fame.
One thing I have learned with Adam – any news surrounding him makes for lively debate. He is nothing if not controversial – his off-stage image is a totally separate entity from his on-stage persona. I think this is what is the most intriguing about this man – his complexity shrouded in a veil of mystery. Who is Adam?Well, one thing I know for sure – he is one heck of a performer. As witnessed in the video above, sent to me by an Adam fan named Sue, he can plant himself on a stage with legends like Queen and sing like he has been performing with them his entire life….More
“Like it or not, the words ‘openly gay’ are ALWAYS going to precede my name in the media. But I don’t carry that heavily. Everyone else does.” Adam Lambert is incredibly relaxed about dealing with the question he must be tired of answering, especially after he made history as the first ‘openly gay’ singer to top the US Billboard Chart with his second album Trespassing earlier this year. Adam Lambert can carry controversy easily on his shoulders“What’s the big deal? I came out of the closet when I was 18, went through all the necessary struggles, and after that I didn’t talk about being gay, I just was.” “I don’t know what came over me”He admits, though, that part of his growing fame and success has meant working out how much responsibility he has to less confident gay people watching what he says and does.“When it first started, I didn’t know where to go with it. I didn’t know if that minority group even wanted me to be their representative publicly – it seemed almost… presumptuous.“Then I worked out you can’t please everyone, so you’re better off being you, ultimately, and it was important for me to assert myself as an artist first and foremost.” read the rest of this very good interview….
Wetpaint - Brendan Robinson Reveals Pretty Little Liars’ “Scary, Scary” Halloween Episode – Exclusive ”…we’re in the middle of filming our Halloween episode right now. Adam Lambert is guest starring. He starts tomorrow. He will be on set with us and it’s going to be a scary, scary episode. I’m not saying that Adam Lambert is scary though. That’s not what I’m saying.”
The Flash - At-a-glance “The next act, Adam Lambert, had yellow zebra carpets put out and sang flawlessly. Lambert did some pelvic thrusting and fist pumps and the crowd followed. The lights on the stage were colorful just like Lambert, who was wearing tight silver zebra leggings. Lambert got the crowd dancing even though he was supposedly sick that night and was drinking tea before his performance. The crowd was obviously sad to see him leave the stage.”
The Home Planet - THE ALL ADAM LAMBERT ALL STAR BAND The gifs make this one! ”Who needs Tommy and the shirtless guy and the hot bassist chick and that hot keyboard guy when Adam can be his OWN band? (Yes I am bored lol)”
The Hollywood Reporter - Mariah Carey Will Be a ‘Wonderful’ ‘American Idol’ Judge, Says Haley Reinhart (Video) ”Also speaking with THR at Teen Choice was season six winner Jordin Sparks, who would love to see Lambert join the panel. “I think it would be great. I think Adam is so talented, his voice is just out of this world,” Sparks said. “It would be funny, too, because you would never know what he’s going to say. You would have to be on guard, the censor people… but I love Adam, I think he’s incredible.”“ Of course, by now the Idol producers have had plenty of practicing with real-time bleeping of outgoing judge Steven Tyler…
The Christian Science Monitor - Mariah Carey joins American Idol Season 12 judging panel ”Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert‘s name has been mentioned frequently over the past few weeks and, with the addition of Mariah Carey, Lambert becomes an even more attractive candidate for the final spot. Here are five reasons why Adam Lambert could prove to be the perfect addition:…” Read more.
CarterMatt- ‘American Idol’ season 12: Exec talks Adam Lambert, Harry Connick Jr. “…First things first, Nigel started off all sorts of controversy by chiding Adam Lambert fans for tweeting him time and time again that the former season 8 star should come back to the show as a judge…We’d be on board for a panel hat consisted of Adam, Harry, and Mariah Carey — who is supposedly in deep discussions to come on the show for a hefty paycheck exceeding $15 million.”
Gather - For Adam Lambert, It’s All About the Fans! ”Adam has said in interviews that the energy going back and forth between him and his audience is important. In fact, he even has an infinity sign tattoo that represents this give and take relationship. So one can imagine how difficult it was for him to sing when he did not feel a connection with the people right in front of him. Later in the show, frustrated again, Adam asked if fans could join those sitting down in the center. He said, “Can people come and join you that are sitting down? I just want to see my fans… can you maybe make friends with them? Maybe they will get you to stand up again.” Then he said to the fans, “yeah, come down.” After hearing an invitation from Adam, there was a huge rush of people trying to get into the front area. However, security blocked everyone from getting through, causing chaos and some disappointment as people were being pushed back to their seats.
Possibly because of this, Adam continued to show love to his fans, and for the first time, he went right into the crowd” Watch the video:
My Desert - Adam Lambert’s fans meet at casino “Many fans dressed in shirts that bore the former “American Idol” finalist’s image, while others did their bests to accessorize, tease, paint and poof themselves into members of Lambert’s “glamily.””
