Just wanted to share this story with you all. I was at a family Passover seder last night and somehow the subject of American Idol came up. I swear I did not start it! One of my sister-in-law’s friends, a burly guy in his 50s, said he was never a fan of the show but he remembered coming across it one season and seeing this guy who was incredible. Guess who? Adam of course! He went on and on about how Adam blew him away with every performance, how Adam was so much more talented than most of the popstars in the business, and “Now he’s a huge superstar. He’s even performing with Queen!” I just smiled and said not a word. But just wanted you all to know that people outside the Glambert bubble are paying attention! And a propos of that, this Passover essay I posted back in 2011 seems fitting: On Seeing. – Juneau

“I listened to ‘Thriller’ on my Dad's record player. Once I was old enough to use the record player. That took a little while. Dad was like you have to know how to do it right. You have to know how to put the needle on the, on the vinyl. Don't scratch it. It took a while to learn.” – @adamlambert All week long we’re celebrating music with #InMyCollection.

Fuse – ADAM LAMBERT WANTS A ROLE IN QUEEN FILM…AS FREDDIE MERCURY’S LOVER? “After that major and naughty revelation that is sure to get the Glamberts excited, Lambert went on to say he’s discussed the film with guitarist Brian May:
“I asked about how times have changed as far as being open about somebody’s private life. And I asked them, ‘How are you going to approach that with the story of Freddie?’ Back in the ’70s and the ’80s, it was something you just didn’t really talk about. Obviously we’re in a much different time now, and it’s very topical so it’ll be really interesting to see how they’ll approach that part of his life. They haven’t quite figured it out yet as the movie is still in development.””
Entertainment Focus – Adam Lambert The Original High Tour, Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith live review “Last night’s show was a fantastic one and a great payoff for fans in the UK that have waited (what feels like) a long time for Adam to play solo. From the stellar vocals to the hits-packed set list, everything about the show was on point. A true one of a kind performer, Adam is in a league of his own and his appeal, judging from the crowd last night, is universal. Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood may be hailed as the biggest stars to come out of American Idol, but Adam Lambert is certainly the most interesting.”
Digital Spy – Adam Lambert: ‘There’s no reason for the music industry to be scared of gay popstars anymore’ “”There’s only so much you can do as an artist,” he explained. “Luckily we’re in a moment right now with streaming where there’s more power put back into the artist’s and audience’s hands.”

Breaking news today about a surprise new single, a song not on The Original High. So tea-leaf readers, what do you make of this? Two Max Martin artists helping to boost each other’s profiles? Do you think Adam planning to debut this on American Idol? Or should he be pushing a track from TOH instead?
FemaleFirst posted today: “Adam Lambert is back with another brand new single featuring Laleh, which he’s set to release on March 17 alongside a debut live performance on the American Idol stage on the same date. Speaking about the tune, Adam says: “I wanted to surprise my fans with a new, uplifting anthem for the spring. I asked Max Martin for help and he paired me up with Ali Payami who worked with me on ‘Ghost Town’ and Swedish star Laleh who is also featured on the track. I feel this song will give people strength to be exactly who they are.”
From Wikipedia: Laleh Pourkarim (Persian: لاله پورکریم, pronounced [lɒːle-je puːɾkæɾiːm]; born 10 June 1982) is a Swedish singer-songwriter and former actress. Following a short acting career, she entered the music industry in 2005 with her self-titled debut album which peaked at number one in Sweden and went on to become the highest selling album of the year.
