MonsterBarNYC: Adam Lambert and his entourage just arrived at the Monster. Where are you?

gregscarnici: At BASSMENT Thursdays at The Monster with djnita & Adam Lambert?!? Yes, it is huh!

@michaelmagnan Jesus, why did Adam Lambert just show up in a Rick Owens knee-hi wedge?

According to G – An Encounter with Adam Lambert “All of us danced all night long to Nikka’s music, which is one of the closest things you can have to a religious experience, according2g.  Nikka’s got the soul, Nikka’s got the funk and she’s an electrifying performer.  Adam Lambert, whose hair is working it in ways I can’t even describe in words, was so cool when we chatted.” Here’s a photo posted by this blogger!

Adam Lambert and G



2pussycat  @adamlambert usually tweets ‘more’ when he is happy. I hope he is just busy, trying not to be a mother hen…
@adamlambert @2pussycat haha I’m elated pussycat. 🙂



“well its always filled with a lot of laughs, crazy stories, and occasional alcohol binges, oh yeah, a lots of music…so basically, its FUN FUN. “

Examiner (Renee Snyder) –  Adam Lambert’s upcoming VH1 ‘Behind the Music’ episode – date changed “VH1 announced today that the new episodes of “Behind The Music” have had a schedule change and will now be moved to Sundays at 10 PM ET/PT. The episode featuring Adam Lambert will now air on August 7, instead of August 10, as previously stated.”

RCA Arista – Appearances – We just heard Adam Lambert will attend the VH1 Do Something Awards on August 14th. The award show will air August 18th. Stay tuned…Final nominees will be announced July 11. Glamberts should be proud of themselves for getting him there. It was a write-in nomination.



IN ROCK Magazine’s August issue interview by Yuko Kato/INROCK, over the phone, June 28, 2011 (LA, USA) – Here’s a synopsis in English by @mmyy9 “Adam will probably come to Japan next year – He has been working on his second album for three months now – He has already recorded 25 songs or so – The album will probably be completed in October (or around that time)…The second album will be more “personal”…All the tracks of the second album will be the songs he wrote…Being asked about Adele, he says that his album will have more electronic sound than hers. What she inspires him most is the way she reminds him that it’s “voice” that’s the most important….”

Thanks to @ToAmour for posting these:

On Top –  Adam Lambert’s Guitarist Tommy Joe Ratliff To Record Gay Marriage PSA “Ratliff has returned for a second photo shoot and will appear in an upcoming PSA for Freedom to Marry’s Say, I Do campaign, which urges President Barack Obama to endorse marriage equality.” [Editor’s note: Some folks have informed us that NOH8 has come under scrutiny regarding its financial practices vis a vis its status as a 501(c)3 charity.  Not having investigated the organization, we do not offer an opinion at this time. We are posting this as news of interest to fans. This should not be interpreted as an endorsement of NOH8.] – Is Adam Lambert serving as ‘Project Runway’ guest judge? “for now, it’s hard to really get much of a firm answer out of anyone as to whether or not it is happening. (If we had to place a bet, though, we would lean towards it happening.)”

Examiner (Katrina Wheeler) – Adam Lambert: ‘VH1 Top 100 Music Videos of 2011’ — two songs on list “VH1 has compiled a list of the Top 100 Music Videos of 2011 thus far — naming their picks for the first 50. The other 50 have yet to be named since there is still half a year to go. The singer Adam Lambert is featured on the list with two songs from his hit debut album, For Your Entertainment.”

And ‘If I Had You’ is #44. Check VH1 Top 100 Music Videos or 2011. – Adam Lambert’s radio numbers prove lasting presence ““Whataya Want From Me” – With 1,772 spins, this is easily Adam’s most-popular song at the moment on American radio (and it is the sixth most-popular song from any “American Idol” alum). You can truly tell the signs of a smash hit by how long they hang around the radio charts, and considering that this song has been around for a year and a half now, it certainly fits the bill.”

The Real Steve Gray – Tips On How To Survive The Great 2011 Adam Lambert Twitter Drought Do not read if you are a fundamental religionist who believes you will burn in hell for all eternity if you read crap like this.

National Enquirer – Glambert and Rod see Eye-to-Eye We’re so starved for info, we’ll believe anything… “Glam-tastic “American Idol” icon ADAM LAMBERT emerged from Hollywood’s Renaissance Hotel, spotted rocker ROD STEWART and hustled over to gush that he’s a great fan. Then, in an eyeblink, the boys began bonding in a dead-serious confab about…the best eyeliner!”

MTV – Lil Wayne, Red Hot Chili Peppers Lead Most-Anticipated Albums “”Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert is working on his “dream” album as the follow-up to his 2009 debut, with help from such songwriting pros as Ryan Tedder, Nikka Costa and Sia. ”

Arjan Writes – Daily Crunch One of our favorite music bloggers give Adam a mention (yup, it’s about that “nicest guy on Twitter” poll, but still..)

Examiner (Renee Snyder) –  Adam Lambert stops by ‘Nu Skool Sings Old School’ to watch young singers perform “According to some of the children that were there, Adam was apparently at a nearby restaurant when he saw Joie-May. He crossed the street to admire her outfit and she told him that she was going to be performing in the Nu Skool Sings Old School show. Joie-may got a surprise when Adam said he would come over to watch her sing. True to his word, he did stop by the show and watched Joie-may and several other acts. Later in the day, a photo of Joie-may and Adam was posted on twitter by her cousin.”

Gaga Stigmata Interview with Spex – An absorbing Q&A with this German magazine about Lady Gaga on our favorite pop-culture blog. “Gaga has actually made pop music avant-garde, by re-framing it and pushing the boundaries of what it is by turning it into an art form with its own criteria. As one of our critics at Gaga Stigmata, Davide Panagia, has said, “Lady Gaga has transformed Pop into an art with a set of aesthetic convictions, possibilities, and ambitions all its own.””

Carter – Adam Lambert reaches 3.3 million in single sales  “…a representative for RCA did finally come on Adam’s official message board recently and at least share a few new details regarding how “For Your Entertainment” is doing along with the “Glam Nation Live” DVD and the “Acoustic Live!” EP.”

Gather – Adam Lambert Already in the Running for 2011 Christmas Jingle Ball “It may only be July, but Florida’s radio station 93.3 FLZ is already planning their lineup for the 2011 Jingle Ball to take place at the St. Petersburg Forum on December 11. Adam Lambert is among the forty-four artists listed in the poll. Adam’s fans take to polls like fish to water and have already begun passionately voting for Adam to perform at this Jingle Ball event.”

Gather – Adam Lambert Knows Why the Caged Bird Sings “Adam Lambert and 20-year-old recording artist JoJo exchanged a few words on Twitter on why the caged bird sings…JoJo posted the following message: “I know why the caged bird sings. The caged bird sings with fearful trill of the things unknown but longed for still . . . ” on Twitter. That’s when the 29-year-old glam rocker chimed in with his two-word response “. . . for freedom.”  “I know why the caged bird sings” may be a reference to the name of African-American poet Maya Angelou’s autobiography. It could also refer to the poem “Sympathy” by Paul Laurence Dunbar. Maya Angelou took the title of her autobiography from a line in Dunbar’s poem. Either way, it looks like Adam Lambert knows his literature.”





Adam Lambert’s fans have been rooting for Sasha Mallory on this season’s So You Think You Can Dance. Many fell in love with Sasha’s dancing and effervescent personality during the Glam Nation tour. When Sasha learned about her young cousin Mia’s devastating medical condition (see Miracles for Mia), fans rushed to help with donations to cover the costs of care. Now fans have another opportunity. Sasha is auctioning the Golden Boots that she wore during Adam’s promo concert in the U.K. last year. The boots are autographed by Sasha. Wouldn’t it be amazing to wear them to the next Adam Lambert show? They could be yours!! Bidding ends on July 15, 17:41:41 PDT.

Here’s a video of Sasha dancing in the boots during FYE on the 5:19 Show (video by madonion; HD posted by devenlane)

Follow Sasha at “So You Think You Can Dance”   and VOTE for Sasha every Wednesday night!!

Arjan Writes – [VIDEO] Mika Performs New Single “Elle Me Dit” on NRJ French Radio “Check out a fun performance of “Elle Me Dit” that he recently performed on NRJ, the France’s leading hit radio station.”  Like Adam, we love Mika, the Lebanese-Brit pop star whose debut album “Life in Cartoon Motion” sold 5.6 million copies (and is still on my iPod). He’s gorgeous too – he and Adam would make sparks fly! (Musically speaking.) Among the producers Mika is working with is William Orbit, who produced Ray of Light for Madonna.

Newly “leaked” – ADAM LAMBERT Rehearsal AMAs FYE 11-22-09 – So good, we’ll leave it up for another week…



I’m sure I’m projecting from my own youthful experiences hanging out in gay clubs, but for many of my friends, beneath the flamboyance, fun and FY attitude, there was a lot of loneliness and pain. I hear that pain in Adam’s voice. This man stretches my emotions in ways that bemuse and astonish me.” – from On the Meaning of Adam Lambert

Here’s the true story of how this Salon and our radio show all began, on the ephemeral pages of a web site, which evolved into our book On the Meaning of Adam Lambert. We said to each other, “This is crazy!”, and then, “What’s the worst that could happen?”  Well, we discovered that the cyberworld is not always benign (see Slings and Arrows), but we are so glad we took the leap. We are having the time of our lives. Climb aboard!


ACTION ITEMS –  Adam Lambert bass player Tommy Joe Ratliff’s ‘NOH8’ photo up for auction According to NOH8, Tommy Joe’s photo is “the most popular NOH8 photo of all time,” based on purchases of the print from their online store. NOH8 is currently filming a PSA for their campaign and when Tommy Joe stopped by to take part, he let them shoot some more poses. The popularity of Tommy Joe’s photo has prompted NOH8 to have a special charity auction on eBay. The auction is for an autographed 12×12 print of Tommy Joe’s NOH8 photo.”
