Adam Lambert Week – September 23-29, 2012
China…Here He Comes!!!
He HAS Arrived!
From @STARLYYTE ON TWITTER: When I spoke with Adam last night before the Benefit for Marriage Equality, I said how exciting it is to hear his Trespassing single being played in different countries like South Africa and Canada, adding we are eager and ready to support its official release in the US. Adam emphatically said he would DEFINITELY let us know when “the trigger is going to be pulled for Trespassing” here. I didn’t ask about specific dates—it was enough seeing how relaxed and happy Adam appeared to be about what lies ahead for his awesome new single. : )
Adam Is Headed To New Zealand!
If Adam wins, he gets 20+ spins on PopCrush’s national radio show. You can vote once per hour!
POLL PopCrush ABOUT TO POP: ADAM LAMBERT, CHER LLOYD + MORE SINGLES …”So what’s in store for this week’s competition? Adam Lambert is nominated for ‘Trespassing,’ the Michael Jackson-esque, Pharell Williams-produced title single from his second studio LP (which also happens to be one of our picks for the Best Albums of 2012). Cher Lloyd is also in the running for her second ‘Sticks + Stones’ single in the U.S., ‘Oath.’ The song features writer/rapper Becky G, and the bubbly, pop-rap, friendship ballad is another surefire hit for the British starlet….”

Info from audience member:
ADAM SPEAKS OUT FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY
“I usually keep a distance from politics—not because I don’t have my own opinions, but because politics in this country involves a lot of mudslinging and negativity. Marriage equality, though, is a human-rights issue—it’s nonpartisan, and I think it should bring people together, which is what I’m all about.”
- Adam Lambert
I think there’s a lot of fear among people who oppose gay and lesbian marriage. I personally believe you’re born one way or the other. Some people think it’s a choice. I think the only choice involved is whether you’re going to be honest about who you are or not, and I’m really big on honesty. If this is something we can get passed, what we’re doing for the next generation is lifting a ton of shame and guilt and secrecy off of the LGBT community. The clichés attached to the gay community were born out of shame and secrecy, and if we can get rid of those things, we’ll end up with a lot more happy, normalized gay and lesbian kids… Adam Lambert as quoted in The Washingtonian (see article link below)

EW: Adam Lambert Spends Halloween on Pretty Little Liars ”The teens of Rosewood are getting a special Halloween treat: Adam Lambert! The American Idol runner-up will perform two songs — ”Cuckoo” and ”Trespassing” — aboard a creepy party train in PLL’s Halloween episode, set to air Oct. 23, during ABC Family’s annual 13 Nights of Halloween. Lambert factors into the story line, too: His interaction with Aria (Lucy Hale) sparks what exec producer Oliver Goldstick teasingly refers to as a ”mystery moment.” ”We’re very proud of the episode,” Goldstick adds. ”It’s got plenty of chills and plenty of thrills.”” —Tanner Stransky
MetroSource NY: Adam Lambert “The glam pop icon headlined a Marylanders for Marriage Equality benefit concert and expressed his support for the movement. His thoughts during the show (via Huffington Post): “When it comes to these types of conversations, it has nothing to do with what religion or where your moral compass lies… everyone has the right to choose whatever religious or spiritual path that they want to choose, and that’s fine. But if I’m going to respect that path, you’ve got to respect my equal rights… Everyone has the right to just love who we love… You can go to your church, you can go to your synagogue… but give us equal rights under the law.” Adam Lambert recently covered Bob Marley. Adam’s one of our favorite icons.”

CBS DC: Adam Lambert Rocks DC in Support of Gay Marriage [Audio Interview] ”…This is the first time Lambert has taken the stage for the cause and he hopes his celebrity status will garner more support for the issue.
“I’m lending my amazing fan base, hopefully they can raise awareness after tonight, after this concert,” said Lambert. “Hopefully I can get them excited.”
Lambert, who first announced he was gay in 2009, was performing on “Idol” in the wake of the highly publicized Proposition 8 initiative that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman in California.
Lambert says he wasn’t in a position to get involved until recently. So, when this opportunity presented itself, he felt it was overdue…”
My Fox DC: Adam Lambert performs at fundraising concert supporting Md. same-sex marriage legalization [VIDEO] “Former “American Idol” sensation Adam Lambert is helping to raise money in the fight to legalize same-sex marriage in Maryland.
The 30-year-old openly gay showman and Idol’s Season 8 runner-up played the 9:30 Club in Northwest D.C. The $125 to $250-a-ticket fundraising concert was to help Marylanders for Marriage Equality pay for television ads in the coming weeks.
GLAAD: ADAM LAMBERT IS AN ‘OUTLAW OF LOVE’ FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY IN MARYLAND: VIDEO Adam Lambert hit Washington DC’s 9:30 Club last night for a benefit show for Marylanders for Marriage Equality in support of Question 6, the referendum on Maryland’s Civil Marriage Protection Act. Before launching into a gorgeous rendition of his track “Outlaws of Love”, Lambert spoke powerfully to the crowd about the issue: “It has nothing to do with the partisan [politics]. It’s a human rights issue.” In related news, earlier this week Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley said that $2 million more dollars needed to be raised: “We’re continuing to raise every day in every way, but I really want to make it clear here that we have the ability to pass this in Maryland,” he told LGBT reporters and bloggers from across the country during a Marylanders for Marriage Equality conference call. “It is keeping with the character of our state. It will protect rights equally under the law while protecting religious liberty. That’s why our state was founded to begin with, but we do need to raise money here. We do need to raise another couple of million dollars, and if we’re able to do that I believe that we will pass this. And raising those dollars is critically important for our ability to be able to defend this at the ballot.”
After Elton: Watch! Adam Lambert Talks Marriage-Equality, Shatters Our Hearts With “Outlaws Of Love” Adam Lambert took a breather from promoting his stellar album Trespassing to head to Washington D.C. to headline a benefit show for “Marylanders for Marriage Equality”, which is devoted to getting the vote out in support of “Question 6,” the referendum on Maryland’s Civil Marriage Protection Act.
Adam talks about his brother Neil, all of the partisan “Schplttthhh,” and why equality transcends all political and religious lines. Then he performs “Outlaws of Love.”…
His moving equality anthem takes on an even deeper meaning here, as the sense of urgency and longing behind the lyrics becomes a perfect theme song for the evening. Take a look!
The Home Planet: FUCK THE PARTISAN SCHFFFPPPLLLLT!!!! EQUALITY FOR ALL!(LOVE this blog!) Adam is very eloquent at the DC marriage equality fundraiser, speaking honestly about marriage equality before bringing the slayage and performing Outlaws of Love…..

Fashion Maniac: Adam Lambert Rocked Marriage Equality Benefit Show …”Not surprisingly, the turnout was diverse: Gay and straight fans of all races attended; and while the youngest admirer was well under 16, there was also a considerable middle-aged presence. One fan was so loyal to the “American Idol” Season 8 runner-up that she hobbled into the standing room only venue on crutches, and did so quite enthusiastically.
Lambert enjoyed the crowd interaction as he strutted across the stage with Freddie Mercury-like confidence. Belting out uptempo, electro-pop headbangers like “Pop That Lock,” “Naked Love,” and “Cuckoo,” plus his most popular tunes “If I Had You,” “Never Close Our Eyes,” and a stripped down version of “Whataya Want From Me”-the track that earned the 30-year-old a Grammy nomination-Lambert was indubitably in his element….”

Total BS, but I”m posting it anyway… Radar Online: Adam Lambert Blasts Paris Hilton’s AIDS Comment About Gay Men: ‘She’s Not Worth It’ American Idol alum Adam Lambert is an openly gay man, so what does he think about Paris Hilton’s statement about gay man having AIDS?
In exclusive video obtained by RadarOnline.com, the 30-year-old singer says, “She’s not worth it” when asked to comment on the audio in which Paris was caught telling a friend, “Gay guys are the horniest people in the world… They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS.”

Matt Carter ‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Jessica Sanchez Adam Lambert hands out a compliment – Based on what Adam Lambert posted on his Twitter, it looks like the season 8 star definitely enjoyed what Alex Newell brought to the table for his performance of “Womanizer” on “Glee” Thursday night. First things first, here is what Adam posted to the former “Glee Project” contestant:
“Diva I’m blown away by u on Glee! You are KILLIN it Mary”Based on what Newell replied with, we’re pretty sure at this moment that Adam pretty much helped to make his day … and month … and maybe year:
“stop it!! I’m totally fangirling it out in my apartment right now!! Thank you soo much you have no idea how much it means!!”
Can anyone say “aww” here quickly enough?
Baltimore Sun - Adam Lambert joins movement for marriage equality in Md. “I’ve received letters and heard from people that have basically expressed they were very ignorant to what the gay and lesbian community was about, and they had preconceived notions. Because of hearing what I do as a singer and being fans of my entertainment, they slowly came around and wanted to be a little more open-minded so now they are open-minded. It’s beautiful thing and a huge reward for me that people can feel that way.”
Metro Weekly - Adam Lambert talks about this Tuesday’s benefit for Marylanders for Marriage Equality at the 9:30 Club “Ideally, that’s what being an American is — that we all have a shot [at marriage]. I hear a lot of arguments against it, where [gay activists] say, ‘We should be focusing on economic issues and not human rights issues, for the election.’ There’s some value in that. But I also think, ‘You know what? This is an economic issue for gay people. We should have the same right as a straight couple to have a tax exemption…. We should be able to raise a family that’s equally protected under the law.”
