Adam Lambert Week – January 13-19, 2013
For Those Worried About Adam’s Parting With 19:
Adam Lambert’s contract with 19 Entertainment expired for good January 11, 2013. It seems CORE Media Group/19 Entertainment http://coremediagroup.com/19.html is a springboard for many artists coming off of American Idol. Adam is STILL on the roster at RCA http://www.rcarecords.com/artists, and Direct Management Group is a great internationally oriented entertainment company that will help Adam shine both musically and creatively!

Adam Lambert tribute magazine AURA is coming!
We have all felt the “Lambert Effect” – the profound feelings of transformation inspired by Adam Lambert. We have heard these stories, from fans around the world of every age, race, nationality, gender and sexual orientation. Adam has touched lives in more ways than can be counted. This amazing phenomenon deserves to be celebrated, and so AURA was born – a single-issue tribute magazine created by and for fans.
AURA will be richly illustrated and accompanied by compelling essays, heart-felt fan testimonials, beautiful photography, fan art, fun facts and stats, all packaged in an elegant, edgy design. Commentaries on Adam’s music, videos, televised performances, concerts and advocacy for Equality will be showcased along with personal narratives and poetry reflecting the myriad ways in which he has profoundly changed lives, hearts, and minds. AURA will include special essays written exclusively for us by some of Adam’s close friends and collaborators.
Sales of AURA will raise funding for Cyndi Lauper’s Forty to None Project, a cause Adam supports. Forty to None is raising awareness about the epidemic of homelessness among LGBTQ youth and is helping these young people who have been rejected by their own families to find safe havens and a better future.

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Flecking Records: Top 20 Sexiest Male Celebrities 2013 Adam Lambert is one of a select few to appear on every Sexy List we have compiled to date. The sexy singer is up this year, sitting pretty at number fourteen. There are few men we can continue to have a crush on knowing full well that they wear eyeliner better than we ever could, but the lovely Mr Lambert is always going to be on our to-hit list. Whether he’s glammed up with all the glitter and the make-up, or stripped down to a more simplistic look, there’s no denying Adam’s good looks.
Pressparty: Adam Lambert reveals excitement for new album Adam Lambert has revealed that he will be starting work on his new album soon. The vocal powerhouse released his second album ‘Trespassing’ in 2012, following on from his 2009 debut ‘For Your Entertainment’. Taking to Twitter yesterday (January 12), Lambert said that he is looking forward to making his third album this year. He also teased fans by suggesting the record will be a “brand new exploration”. The ‘Better Than I Know Myself’ star said:
Idolator: Adam Lambert Splits With 19 Recordings Adam Lambert has chosen to split with 19 Recordings after three years of working with the entertainment company. The American Idol Season 8 runner-up signed to 19 Recordings once he reached the finals that season. His contract expired this month, and Lambert chose not to renew. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Lambert left 19, but is still signed to RCA, and that the split was “amicable,” as Adam and his former team have “the utmost respect for each other.”…
EntertainmentWise: Adam Lambert And Record Label ‘Part Ways’ Despite Chart Success Adam Lambert has ‘parted ways’ from record label 19 Recordings, despite the singer’s constant success, it’s been revealed. The eccentric star was the first openly gay man to top the charts with latest album Trespassing in the US, but has now reportedly parted ways with his label, 19 Recordings, but is still on the roster at RCA Records, which is owned by Sony. ”It’s good for both sides,” says an insider. ”Adam can move forward with his plans and 19 isn’t stuck in the middle.”…
Popcrush: ADAM LAMBERT LEAVES RECORD LABEL Adam Lambert is walking away from his deal with 19 Records. But don’t worry — though his style and attitude are fierce, his relationship with the label is perfectly friendly, and he’s still got another deal. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Lambert’s contract with 19 expired and he simply chose not to renew it. It won’t affect his musical output much, as he will still be signed to RCA, of which 19 is a subsidiary. Lambert left 19 Management in August 2011, but remained on the label until this month….
DongFang Daily News Morning Edition: Is Adam Lambert the next Michael Jackson? (Translation by @hcluless) On the stage of American Idol Season 8 in 2009 there were the inexplicable presence of Adam Lambert who stunned and thrilled everyone. If the untamed black hair, bewitching black eyeliners and black nail polish is the manifestation of his powerful personal style; then his core must having been the superb stage presence, the other worldly hypnotic voice and the pure and sincere charm. On March 3rd this year, the 53th Grammy nominated Best Pop Vocal superstar will be bringing his new album ‘Trespassing’ to Shanghai. He will be performing on the stage of the Mercedes-Benz Culture Center; bringing us the only concert of his world tour that will be held in Mainland China. Tickets went on sale yesterday…. SOURCE

The nine songs performed by 30-year old Lambert, who was runner-up in season eight of the TV talent quest American Idol, concluded the invitation-only concert.

UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter: Adam Lambert and 19 Recordings Part Ways (new quote from 19 now at the bottom of the original article) A rep for 19 Entertainment tells THR, “It has been wonderful working with someone as talented as Adam over the years. Through the recording process, we have seen him grow into himself as an artist and we are proud of the success we’ve had together. We wish him luck in his future endeavors.”

Matt Carter: ‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert, Scotty McCreery, Casey Abrams We’re going to kick off this edition of “American Idol” notes with what surely has to be the biggest news of the day: Adam Lambert splitting away from 19 Recordings, even though he is still under contract with RCA to make music moving forward. This move (first posted by The Hollywood Reporter) is ultimately one that was pretty inevitable, given that Adam had already broke off from the management branch of Simon Fuller’s 19 Entertainment and the contract with the recording portion of the company was set to expire. Also, it didn’t make much sense at all for him to re-up a deal with them, given that 19R is now working mostly with Interscope and UMG following the changes brought on before the start of season 10…
NewNowNext: Does Adam Lambert Want You to Just Quit it With the Bullying Pity Party? Crooning gay icon and makeup connoisseur Adam Lambert has a few questions for you about bullying and they aren’t what you may think. More specifically, Lambert seems to want to know what it is, exactly, that makes the discourse around bullying so focused on the person doing the bullying instead of the person being bullied. The American Idol runner-up took to Twitter yesterday to create an open discussion on the topic and we’d like to participate, from the safety of our own blog, in said conversation. Observe:…
After Elton: Morning Meme Adam Lambert went into a long discussion on Twitter about bullying, essentially wondering if there was a point in trying to stamp out bullies one by one, rather than just equipping victims to be tougher. There’s an idea there, but one can’t really exist without the other, and bullies, unchecked, will always overrun their victims.
Meanwhile, Adam has amicably ended his relationship with 19 Recordings, his record label for his first two studio records since Idol, plus a few other releases. He’s still with RCA Records however, and has been tweeting that the change is in time to allow him to do something wonderful for his third new release, possibly in 2013.
MJs Big Blog: Adam Lambert Splits with 19 (interesting comments re artists’ relationships with 19/RCA: below this article) Now that 19R has moved on to partnering with UMG, I would imagine “lame duck” Idols still signed to both RCA and 19R will be moving off the 19 roster eventually. Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Daughtry, Jordin Sparks and Fantasia are all still signed with 19R/RCA. (edited)
Female First: Adam Lambert – Defying All Expectations Adam Lambert’s is one of the biggest success stories from American Idol, with the Indianapolis born singer going from the musical stage to topping the charts with a devoted fan base backing him up all the way. Despite a promising career on stage, it was the world of pop that lured him in, after a psychedelic experience at festival Burning Man convinced him to audition for the eighth series of American Idol…

Huffington Post: GLAAD Media Awards 2013: Adam Lambert, ‘The New Normal’ And ‘Smash’ Score Nominations NEW YORK, Jan 16 (Reuters) – Television shows “The New Normal” and “Smash,” animated film “ParaNorman,” and “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert were among nominees on Wednesday for the GLAAD Media Awards.

Matt Carter: ‘American Idol’ notes: Phillip Phillips, Adam Lambert, Ryan Seacrest Adam Lambert scores love – The GLAAD Media Awards are always a little confusing, mostly because they have so many different people to honor that they have three separate awards shows (March 16 in New York, April 20 in Los Angeles, and May 11 in San Francisco). Regardless, we’re pleased to report that Adam Lambert has been nominated for Outstanding Music Artist.
Adam has some pretty good competition this year, as well, including the likes of his pal Jake Shears’ act the Scissor Sisters along with Grammy frontrunner Frank Ocean. It’s always an honor to be nominated, and now we just have to wait and see if he wins. (You can view all the nominees here.)
Popcrush: 2013 GLAAD MEDIA AWARDS: ADAM LAMBERT, FRANK OCEAN + MORE NOMINATED The nominees for the 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards have been announced, and the likes of Adam Lambert, Frank Ocean and ‘Glee‘ are being honored this year. Lambert and Ocean are facing off in the Outstanding Music Artist category for their work on ‘Trespassing’ and ‘Channel Orange,’ respectively. They will also be up against the Gossip, Scissor Sisters and Rufus Wainwright.

Nile Rodgers.com: American Idols! When I woke up this morning I was hit with a powerful thought: cherish this moment because I don’t know what the rest of the day’s going to be like. I walked outside, sniffed the crisp ocean air, then started my typically hectic day: answered emails from Fender Guitars, Irvine Welsh, Avicii, The Grammys (my label Sumthing has the 1st video game soundtrack ever nominated), Anita Baker, Simian Mobile Disco, and one of the funniest dudes on the planet Russell Peters.
