We update constantly, so come back often! To browse  past issues, go to the Tag cloud in the right margin and click on “Week in Review”. And if you still wonder ‘What is it about Adam Lambert?’ or feel like a freak for loving him, you’ll find good company in the pages of our book



Well, well, the entertainment industry has finally recognized the Internet and the power of fans! MTV has created the O Music Awards for Online Music, and included categories for Best Fan Army and Best Fan Forum (although these appear to be sites created by recording companies, not fan-initiated sites). Adam is nominated in two categories: Fan Army and F*ck Yeah TumblrGo vote for this awesome fandom!!



Adam elevated the temperature on the red carpet at the taping of NewNowNext Awards Thursday night. The show will air on  Logo TV – NewNowNext Awards April 11 at 10PM EST. Here’s a short blurb with more photos on Socialite Life.

Adam and Sauli attended the Uh Huh Her show Friday night to cheer on Glam Nation bandmate Camila Grey. Here’s a notice in Just Jared. We love the band’s dark, sexy electro-pop sound. Check out their Black and Blue video and go buy their new EP. They are fantastic. Check this LA Weekly post for more photos.

USA Today – Elton John sales rocket after ‘American Idol’ theme week “…after debuting atop SoundScan’s Music Video chart last week, Adam Lambert sells an addition 4,000 copies of his Glam Nation Live DVD this week. That’s enough to keep him at No. 2, behind a Les Miserables: 25th Anniversary in Concert release that features Nick Jonas.”

MTV O Awards – Voting starts soon has begun!! Adam is nominated in two categories: Fan Army and F*ck Yeah Tumblr. “I don’t quite know when it started, but within the last two years artist-specific fans have begun creating blanket names for themselves — more commonly known as The Fan Army…Fan Army FTW is just one of the creative categories that the newly launched award show, which embraces artists who understand and capitalize on how technology is changing in relation to music.”

MJsBigBlog – Adam Lambert VH1 Behind the Music Special Publicist Page Jeter tweets, “VH1′s Behind the Music @adamlambert with Kris Allen interview at @tru_hollywood!” In other words, Kris Allen sat for an interview with VH1 today for an Adam Lambert Behind The Music special.

Tweeted to Perez Hilton:  @adamlambert @PerezHilton RADIATE LOVE?

Pop Republic TV – Adam Lambert – Glam Nation LIVE (CD/DVD) “”A jaded journo gets his glam nation on” Music critic Rob Manser confesses: “Its incredibly rare for me to go ape shit over an artist, let alone consider myself a total fan… but its finally happened…Adam personifies the best of the music business. Talent, creativity, drive, humanity and above all – a connection with his fans that makes them FEEL the entire production of what he is offering – from the visual live stage spectacular to acoustic recordings… all have that old school “real” vibe about them – whilst maintaining a commercial sensibility that thousands of “chart” acts STRIVE to achieve and fail at. Adam is a natural.”



We’ve heard via Adam’s own tweets that he has been working with Ryan Tedder, Bonnie McKee and Nikka Costa. Check out Nikka Costa’s official YouTube channel (hilarious video for @BronxZoosCobra). She and Adam were Tweasing the fans:

officialnikka in the studio with@adamlambert and @printzboard killin it! Xiting stuff in the worx! Good times 🙂

adamlambert @PrintzBoard @officialnikka so dirrrty

Sia, the Australian singer-songwriter and another dream collaborator of Adam’s tweeted Saturday that she has moved to Los Angeles. She broadcast her plans to furnish her tiny apartment with free furniture found via Twitter. She was very excited to discover the free items section of CraigsList. Then we saw this:

HannaBec When asked about Adam RT @siamusic @VampBeastie i’m seeing him next week.

Sia – Breathe Me, which was unforgettable on Six Feet Under

GoodWill_Music: studio flow, tracking a record we wrote for adam lambert w/ jonny_rose & ohferras

siamusic: NicoBlackheart yeh he is so so amazing. we wrote an unbelievable song.” Ohh… Interview with BC Jean (Video) – The hit-making songwriter talks about working with Adam!

The Hollywood Reporter – Ryan Tedder On Working with Adam Lambert, David Cook and Season 10 Finalist Stefano Langone
The article says Tedder wrote and produced two songs on Adam’s second album. “I think he’s a rocker. He can definitely pull off a dance song, but after working with him, I really think he’s a rock dude and one of the greatest male vocalists around, for sure…No matter what, I think Adam’s a star…He’s still super funny and goofy as hell. We just have fun in the studio. He doesn’t take himself seriously at all. It’s still fun and cheeky and sarcastic, but he definitely knows what he wants…all I really do is, I write or produce the kind of Adam Lambert song that I would want to hear.”

Adam Official – Glam Nation Live” CD/DVD Debuts At #1

Buy the music and videos on iTunes

Boston Herald – Review: “Glam Nation Live” (19/RCA): A “His dark and yet somehow triumphant sound -— sort of a dancefloor diva’s interpretation of the Cure — is expertly re-created, while Lambert’s breathtaking vocal exploits (“Ring of Fire,” anyone?) leave no doubt about who should have nabbed the “Idol” crown.”



The New Republic -American Idol Is Just A Popularity Contest–And That’s A Good Thing “Ultimately, then, the best contestant still wins, which is no doubt reflected in the chart-topping success of most American Idol finalists (though season eight runner-up Adam Lambert might say otherwise).”

Ezine @rticles – Adam Lambert – Down the Rabbit Hole Indeed “Somewhere between rock god and Broadway powerhouse, Lambert’s style seamlessly blends bravado and beauty in a way that’s almost hard to hear at first listen. It’s just too perfect sometimes, but the soul is there, and that’s the thing that puts Lambert’s vocals and style over-the-top…He truly connects with both the material and the audience all at once, and that is what makes every singer truly successful….”

Thanks to @sexynarwhal for Twitting this!

The Mo’Kelly Report – Why You (and I) Shouldn’t Root for Jacob Lusk to Win American Idol “The American Idol “management” deal is a contradiction in terms and a conflict of interests. A typical deal requires a “manager” to work on behalf of the client, to generate maximum business opportunities, revenue and best position the artist to succeed. The 19 Entertainment “management” deal precludes the artist largely from doing any outside the realm of American Idol-related or sponsored activities.”

On Top – Lady Gaga Joins Adam Lambert In Donating Proceeds To Gay Groups “Pop singer Lady Gaga will donate proceeds from the country remix of her gay anthem Born This Way to gay group GLSEN, MTV News reported.”

The Silly Old Daniel Celebrity Roundup Silly Old Daniel says “My two passions in life are celebrities and pop music. I am very shallow. I am a gay. That is all.” After unburdening himself about Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, he does a hilarious take-down of the tabloid dust-up over Adam’s Lady Gaga exploits: “As the party went on he apparently became LOUDER and MORE ROWDY, which culminated in Adam drunkenly SINGING to Lady GaGa. I’ve heard it all now– SINGING at a party, he might as well have just started shooting heroin there and then. Unsurprisingly, Lady GaGa eventually had Adam thrown out of the party for his nuisance behaviour (singing at a party, indeed, I just can’t get over it!), because having fun at Lady GaGa’s birthday is simply not allowed. Now SIT DOWN, DRINK YOUR WHISKY and TALK ABOUT WHAT A PROFOUND INFLUENCE ANDY WARHOL HAS HAD ON YOUR WORK.” SOD is a bit of a potty brain, so be forewarned.

Examiner – Miley Cyrus: Singer talks radiating love — Perez Hilton, Adam Lambert tweet “Perez Hilton wrote via Twitter: “#RADIATELOVE.” This is a possible topic/term that Miley Cyrus (the singer has recently returned to Twitter) has been hoping to get trending on the popular social network. Hilton and Cyrus had been exchanging messages via Twitter. Adam Lambert then responded by writing: “@PerezHilton RADIATE LOVE?“, to which Hilton wrote: “@adamlambert Yes.–Ng.” As fans can see by the link, Hilton posted the link to singer’s Adele’s song, “Make You Feel My Love”. Adele’s latest album, 21 is a hit, and has already yielded hit songs for the popular star.”

LA Weekly – La Cita In The News: Mustache Mondays Leaves A Void, Adam Lambert Punches A Hole and Punky Reggae Fills It All Up The latest on Perez drama… “Strange considering Perez not only says he’s turned over a new leaf, he told us Lambert inspired him to make his birthday a charity event. As of last night, looks like Adam isn’t too happy with the blogger himself. In response to Hilton’s Twitter post #RADIATELOVE last night (actually a Miley Cyrus proposed trending topic tweet), the glam star replied, “RADIATELOVE?””

Dede Tillman Blogs – 5 Star Hollywood Hunks A little flail fest here for fun!

San Francisco Bay Times – Raja Hits Bay Area for Whirlwind Tour Interview in which Raja explains that he’s not a cold bitch in reality. “The thing I want to do as an entertainer and artist is leave a legacy of art and creativity and being an out-of-the-box thinker. I don’t want to disappear off the face of the earth and have no one remember me that way. I would like to say I have a wealth of knowledge, and if I can share it with other people, then by all means let’s do it!”

Autostraddle – Linda Perry Starts Pink’s Party, Defends Christina Aguilera, Is Legendary Excellent interview with the uncompromising and much in-demand songwriter and producer Linda Perry [who wrote and produced “Loaded Smile” on FYE]. Wish the interviewer had asked more questions about working with Adam… “Inspired by recent love obsession and heartbreak, Linda is writing, recording and performing her own music for the first time in 12 years in the form of a rock duo named Deep Dark Robot.”
