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.”
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.
