WHO HAS THE BEST FAN BASE?
PopCrush’s Best Fan Base Reader’s Poll – “Attention super fans! For our latest reader’s poll, we want to know which artist has the absolute best fan base. Many pop performers have astoundingly loyal fans (some referred to as “Stans” a la the Eminem song of the same name), who provide a constant means of support and love for the singer themselves. So, out of the 12 most distinct fan bases we’ve narrowed it down to, which one do you think is the best in their unwavering adoration for a specific pop star?”

Washington Post – ‘American Idol’ 2012: Top 10 Idolettes move on to summer tour, one is sent packing “Hey — this show isn’t about the judges. It’s about…Tommy Hilfiger? The designer appears on screen and announces he’s going to be the show’s new “image” consultant this season . He expresses admiration for Adam Lambert’s style, and we can’t help but think about the amazing, endless possibilities for bringing some Adam Lambert-inspired fashions to the stage this season.”
Gather – Adam Lambert’s Remix Gets Choreographed! “International Dance Academy (IDA) Hollywood is locally and internationally recognized as LA’s premiere dance studio. IDA acts as the home of many top television shows such as So You Think You Can Dance, Americas Best Dance Crew, and Dancing with the Stars, among others. Dejan Tubic and Janelle Ginestra did this choreography as part of their hip-hop class at the studio. To seeBetter Than I Know Myself used in a dance class of this caliber shows that while a hit in its original form, the song was also successfully turned into a great dance remix.”
PopCrush – ADAM LAMBERT SAYS SINGING WITH QUEEN IS A ‘COOL GIG’ + NOTHING MORE (VIDEOS) “In a recent chat with a radio host, Lambert celebrated Mercury as one of his top five favorite singers of all time, saying, “It’s not that I am the new Freddie Mercury. I am not there to imitate anybody or be the new anything. I’m just Adam doing a cool gig.” Glambert was being incredibly respectful and careful with his comments to the Washington, D.C.-based radio station.”
Sauli’s Blog – Wonderful Friends. Posted at Adamtopia, translation by Miachihu (@miachihu) and Zinnia (@tiiqqu). “Hello!! Life is smiling and once again the weekend is here! yay!! This week I’ve been thinking about how wonderful it finally is to feel like this is where I belong, and nothing feels strange or unfamiliar anymore. For sure I’ve always been happy, but it really seems to take about a year to get all the things sort of running smoothly in a new country and in a new environment…”
Ultimate Classic Rock – Adam Lambert on Joining Queen: ‘I’m Not There to Imitate Anybody’ “My father was a DJ in college,” remembered Lambert, “and he had a huge record collection. He busted out all the Queen albums he had, and I saw the pictures of Freddie and heard his voice, and I was like, why don’t I know this — who is this? I instantly recognized how theatrical their sound was, but it was also rock…the connection was instant for me…As for whether or not there will be live recordings of his time with the band, Lambert sounded hopeful. “I hope so. I don’t know what the deal is, but I hope they record it,” he said, laughing, “Archive that s—.””
Songwriter’s Marketplace – Monte Pittman Can’t Stop Rockin’ “With Adam, I wanted to add a rawness into the music that you usually wouldn’t get from someone coming from American Idol or a lot of new bands in general these days. I helped make it something that would sound and feel good live in the venues we were playing. There was a lot of spontaneity in the band which was fun and interesting then. We had a chemistry together where it was almost like we knew what each other were going to do before we did it. On his acoustic EP, you can hear how we play off each others dynamics.”
Boston Herald – KISS-fest with Adam Lambert! ““American Idol” hopeful-turned-superstar Adam Lambert thrilled 50 lucky fans yesterday at a swanky, invite-only event at the W Boston Hotel…Before the performance in front of the cheering crowd, Matt Siegel of Matty in the Morning revealed the impressive list of artists for the May show. The headliners include Lambert, Flo Rida, Gym Class Heroes and Enrique Iglesias. Local rising stars on the bill are Karmin, Sammy Adams and JoJo — who also performed at yesterday’s event.”
Wicked Local – Adam Lambert of ‘American Idol’ a high note for Milford’s Pinz ““Absolutely, Adam is our biggest-name performer so far,” Breen said. “We’re excited. The response has been amazing.

Japan’s InRock magazine article on Adam. Scans by @koyumi_adam
Trespassing Through the Front Door – by NoAngel “History is filled with people who walked politely into hallowed institutions and then changed things radically from the inside. In terms of the music business, there is power and autonomy that comes from mainstream success, and the artist who reaches the top has more freedom. If Adam wanted to be an indie artist with a cult following, he could easily go down that path. But Adam craves a larger platform and a wider audience and he’s willing to position himself in a way that maximizes that possibility. You can call him a sell-out. Or you can see him as a strategist. You could mourn the fact that the U.S. can’t fully embrace his brand of crazy. Or you can admire that he is clever and long-sighted enough to look for other ways into the inner sanctum.”
Gather – Adam Lambert and Bonnie McKee Rave About Each Other “Yesterday, Adam mentioned Bonnie in a Q&A session with fans at a Hot 95.5 radio promotion event. He shared that they co-wrote a couple of his new songs, including Chokehold and Cuckoo and praised her saying, “She’s so talented. So talented.””
Washington Examiner – Sightings: Adam Lambert stops by Cobalt – “”American Idol” alum Adam Lambert stopped by Cobalt unannounced Saturday night and ended up taking over the deejay booth and playing four songs off his upcoming album “Trespassing.” We’re told that Lambert, with his boyfriend and a member of his band in tow, had several drinks downstairs and, chatting with club management, agreed to debut a few new songs that he had stored on his iPhone.”
HitFix – Listen: Adam Lambert remixes ‘Better Than I Know Myself’ “The remix by Grammy-nominated producer/remixer Dave Aude is one of several on an EP of “Better” remixes released today via Lambert’s website, AdamOfficial.com. It’s loud and in your face and has some very cool speaker tricks going on.”
CarterMatt – ‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert remixes, Jeremy Rosado performance “Overall, they are certainly worthy of dancing around the room to while belting the chorus at the top of your lungs. The Alex Ghenea remix is our personal favorite, mostly because it feels the most like an ’80s synth ballad that we would love to hear at the tail end of an indie film. It may not be the biggest departure of the three from the original version, but the instrumentation adds a new layer of charm to the song.”
Idolator – Adam Lambert’s “Better Than I Know Myself” Remix: Idolator Premiere “As much as we love Adam Lambert’s power ballad “Better Than I Know Myself” just as it is, Glambert’s song works even better as a sped-up club banger.”
Rockstar Weekly – Adam Lambert Issues Better Than I Know Myself Remixes EP “The best part of Adam Lambert remixes are the use of vocals, which, more often than not, are actually showcased better than the original recordings, because the remixes enhance and show off certain vocal phrases better.”
Neon Limelight – New Music: Adam Lambert’s “Better Than I Know Myself” Gets Remixed Three Times “The EP, which is on sale right now on his official website, features three brand new official remixes of the track, including a craaaazy sick grungy reinterpretation by Robert Marvin, an upbeat dubstep version by Dave Audé, and a new take by Alex Ghenea, which allows the song to remain a ballad, but with a lovely new beat.”
Celebrity-Gossip – Adam Lambert Hits The Nation’s Capital (PHOTOS) – “He’s never in one place for very long, and earlier today (March 12) Adam Lambert was spotted out and about in Washington DC.”
Gather – Adam Lambert a Contender for MTV ‘Musical March Madness 2012’ “Winners are determined by fan votes, so Glamberts will need to step up and vote constantly to secure the win for Adam. But be ready —it’s going to be tough! Other artists in the competition include champsGreen Day, Mumford & Sons, and Foo Fighters, to name a few. For the first bracket round, Adam is up against Foster the People.”
Ryan Seacrest Foundation – Adam Lambert Makes A Special Visit To CHOA! (PHOTOS) “Adam Lambert stopped by the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to hang out with excited patients and answer their questions in studio. Adam’s visit drew quite a crowd, with patients and families inside and outside of the studio listening to his interview and posing for pictures with him. They learned quite a lot about Adam and his passion for music, which started at quite a young age.”
Shop.Gay.Ru – Article about Adam Lambert to be in upcoming issue. Translation:

The musician has consistently been included in the top 50 most influential gay people of America.
