ADAM THE MUSE
A little Adam, a little green beer, next thing you know, a good Jewish girl from Long Island starts spouting limericks on St. Patricks Day. From @RadioChloe
There once was a guy who could sing
And had a cool skull on his ring
With a heart of gold
And a bravery bold
He inspired just by doing his thing
He made us laugh at “historic wood”
We try to “calm our tits” when we should
And our one big wish
Is for “Mapril the Ish”
To get here and give us the good!
PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Rollling Stone – ‘The Hunger Games': If Rockers Ruled Panem “Adam Lambert as Caesar Flickerman. The over-the-top persona and attention-getting looks of American Idol Season Eight runner-up Lambert make him our first choice for the Games’ interviewer, known as much for his personable Q&As with the tributes as he is for his trademark fashionable attire.”
After Elton – Adam Lambert Gives Us a Sneak Peek at “Trespassing” “Later, Adam played “Shady” for us – a track about going out and getting a little somethin’ somethin’ that he co-wrote with out pop performer Sam Sparro. It’s a dancy, upbeat track about nasty things – a contrast to some of the more stripped-down and somber songs on the album that are earnest discussions of love, communication (“Broken English”), and even navigating gay romance (“Outlaws of Love”). ”
Metrosource – A Very Lambert Listen Don’t know how we missed this before. Nice in-person report on Adam’s stop at NYC’s Elmo in Chelsea, where he previewed tracks from “Trespassing” to “a select group of gay tastemakers.” “Even in a crowd dressed to impress, all eyes were on Lambert as he mingled about the room — in part because of sheer height but also because Lambert possesses a personal radiance that borders on dazzling…After playing about five songs, Lambert asked for the crowd’s favorite and the general consensus was that “Trespassing” was the biggest hit (though I’m pretty sure I saw Lambert smile when I called out “Outlaws of Love” as my pick). “Thank you for your time. Thank you for your support. This album is for us; it’s for our community,” said Lambert…”
Adam Lambert: I buy my own toilet paper! Translation of article in Glitter Sweden (posted by @Dilerius) “I was a nerd, but I wasn’t shy I was both seen and heard. Kinda like now, haha! In school it’s the cool kids you adapt to in order to be liked. I never knew how to do that, I still don’t! Haha!”
Article in Finnish Youth Magazine Demi on March 22nd, 2012 Text by Ida Valpas, pictures: Sony Music Finland. Translation by Miachihu (@miachihu) and Zinnia (@tiiqqu), posted on March 22nd, 2012. “Soon after the American Idol Adam started touring and at the same time he recorded quickly his first album For Your Entertainment. The first album got a praising reception, but Adam confesses that it wasn’t quite of his own style….”On that first, theatrical album I tried to be the rock star I had wanted to be when I was a kid. The new album was born when I asked myself: “What do I want to say with my music?” Adam explains in an interview by Yahoo Music.”
Gay Times Mag (May 12, 2012 Issue 405): Queen for a day. American Idol? “So when we caught up with him after news broke, the first question was obvious – does he feel like his sexuality qualifies him any better to play Freddie? “I don’t know, I don’t think I’m playing Freddie, I think I’m me, and the tricky thing that people need to realize is that I’m doing it my way. But I think the coincidence that we’re both gay men – the best thing about it is that I can identify maybe with some of his writing. Especially when I listen to the lyrics of The Show Must Go On, from what I’ve been told, Freddie wrote that about dealing with his secrets and dealing with his illness and facing the world.” This UK magazine is available for purchase.
Adam in German Bravo Mag – on Tattoos – looks like they used an image of our temp tattoos!
The Advocate – Our Hall of Fame (Part 3) – Adam is listed at #45. “In his first post-Idol TV performance at the American Music Awards, Lambert stole headlines by kissing his male keyboard player. He’s become an advocate for The Trevor Project and Equality California. But his example as a reliable voice for being yourself is perhaps most important.”
Laura Saltman: My Top 10 ‘American Idol’ Interview Moments! No. 3: Kris Allen & Adam Lambert’s Morning After. “I had a special relationship with the contestants of Season 8, who — by far — will always remain my favorites. I know Kris loved coffee and was going on no sleep, so I figured he needed a caffeine fix. I remember meeting Adam when he made the Top 24, and we just instantly bonded. It was no secret I was a huge fan of his from the get go. Unfortunately, the day after the finale aired, many people were still questioning Adam’s sexuality. He had yet to come out at the time and it was brought up by the media at a post “Idol” press conference. So, I wanted to find out his reaction to it. When he mentioned he liked that people were “curious,” it just made me think “bi-curious,” which cracked Adam up.” Watch the video: Access Hollywood – Kris Allen and Adam Lambert’s Idol All-Nighter
Yahoo Reality Rocks – Maypril Jewels: Hear Four New Adam Lambert Song Snippets! “Thanks to the fine folks at HitPredictor.com, four tracks from Adam Lambert’s salivatingly anticipated sophomore album, Trespassing(due for a “Maypril” release, as Adam so amusingly/frustratingly announced; its original street date was supposed to be, um, TODAY), have surfaced online–in all their glittering glory. And I predict that they’re ALL going to be hits.” GO LISTEN.
Kansas Q&A – Atop write-up by hooplaPF Check out this terrific 4-part write-up of Adam’s Q&A with fans on Monday. We believe the session was unrecorded. Very moving story about a young gay man in the audience who had recently been badly beaten up.
Fans Share – Adam Lambert 2012 “2012 is beginning to take speed and we are already well into March but it seems that 2012 has already been a great year for formerAmerican Idol contestant Adam Lambert and it seems like it is going to get even better.”
Sauli in Hollywood Blog Translation by Miachihu (@miachihu) & Zinnia (@Tiiqqu), posted on March 20th, 2012. “I’ve been sitting here all alone for two days now, laughing and every once in a while getting also a bit emotional, this really makes no sense at all. This really has got to stop before my man comes back home from his work. Hah!”
The Home Planet – Doodle Me This! “So today Adam drew himself at one of his promo stops and I would like to go over the many points as to why this is an eerily accurate self portrait masquerading as a half assed doodle…”
Queerty – EXCLUSIVE: Adam Lambert On Trespassing, Britney Spears, Fame, The Press, And More! “Adam Lambert held an intimate meet-and-greet for the gay elect this week at Chelsea eatery Elmo, where he chatted ever-so-politely with LGBT media outlets and nonprofits. The glam rocker gave Queerty an interview, as well as a sneak peek at some tracks from his new album, Trespassing, which still doesn’t have a release date. (Though the remix EP of the first single, “Better Than I Know Myself,” was just released on iTunes.)”

FAN CLUB NEWS
AUDIO AND VIDEO FAVES
Adam Lambert – Q&A – 93.9 Lite fm – Coca-Cola Live 3-16-2012, Chicago.
Question about his “instrument” elicits hilarity. Doesn’t know what his range is. Will be doing full concert with Queen; no set list yet. Can’t wait to do “Another One Bites the Dust?” The album is trying to be deep. “I see a lot on Twitter. What I hate is when people pick fights and take sides that don’t exist.” Doesn’t read or write music. “I do everything by ear. I feel it and hear it in my head.”
