PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
IS-Tutka – Video (in Finnish) interview with Sauli. We now know how to say “Bora Bora” in Finnish. Rinnuninnu’s blog has translated some highlights. “In the video Sauli also mentions that they will keep their fingers crossed for some special person to win an Emma.”
On Top – Adam Lambert’s Bass Guitarist Tommy Joe Ratliff Plans More Gay Advocacy “I was very excited to do it. I’m amazed with how it turned out and I was floored by the reaction…I have a lot of respect for what they’re doing and will do whatever I can to help out.””
GQ Japan – LGBT movers and shakers (scan) – Adam is #22 in their list of “Power Gay 33” (Thanks to J_Lambs: GQ JAPAN 2011年4月号「特集：LGBTが世界を動かす THE POWER OF LGBT」記事中のTHE MOST INFLUENTAL GAY 33（世界をリードする最強パワーゲイ33人！）にADAMさん♪
The Hollywood Reporter – Boy George Talks Culture Club Reunion, Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert “He came to a party I had in London and was lovely. I think he has a great voice and an incredible range. It’s phenomenal. It’s special. And I think the glam thing adds to that. It gives him an edge…”
Byron Cooke – The Posner tongue dive inspired by Adam Lambert? “Aside from his super tight band, the highlight of Mike’s Melbourne Good Vibes performance was his very “special” brand of audience interaction…and the minute I saw it play out in front of me I thought….IT’S THE FAMOUS ADAM LAMBERT TONGUE DIVE! I’d seen it personally in Sydney at the Glam Nation Show & YOU can see it here…”
Bay Windows – So they say: Adam Lambert, John Slattery, Nicki Minaj New England’s largest GLBT newspaper takes note of Adam’s recent interview on Canada’s ET: “”[It’s] an amazing opportunity to be able to help people.” – Openly gay “American Idol” alum Adam Lambert said that his fame is a good opportunity to be a gay role model.”
Queerty – Is Adam Lambert Finally Ready To Represent The Gays? More snark and a firestorm of commentary…
Yahoo – Should Adam Lambert Tone it Down for Next Album? “Despite his being one of the most popular “American Idol” contestants in recent history, Adam Lambert‘s post “Idol” success hasn’t been what the record company, critics, or fans expected. While “For Your Entertainment” has slowly climbed to 782,000 domestic sales and over a million worldwide, it’s not the explosive multi-million sales success of “AI” alums Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood. With all the controversy over Adam Lambert‘s outspokenness (on a variety of subjects) and bold displays of glam eroticism, does he need to take a step back? With a new album planned for 2011, should Adam make different choices than the ones he made with “For Your Entertainment?””
