EVENTS OF THE WEEK
See our post for more pix, video & tweets
We are mad for this look! Gorgeous ramie jacket with unfinished edges, the simple chains, the bronze theme – hair highlights, jewelry and nail lacquer – the diaphanous fabric spilling out from under the jacket… Here are the Gareth Pugh trousers he’s wearing. And here’s the jacket, via style ninja

We came across some entertaining ideas on Twitter. What are you going to wear to the Trespassing Tour? A little police tape, anyone?

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Gather – Adam Lambert Welcomes New ‘Glamily’ Members “Based on their Twitter bios, both Octavia Latrice and Keisha Renee are members of Jill Scott’s The A Group. In addition, like Adam, Keisha Renee was an American Idol contestant. She made it to the Top 40 during Season 10.”
VH1 The FabLife – Adam Lambert, Eden Wood Make Our Jaws Drop On The NewNowNext Awards Red Carpet (PHOTOS) “While host Kelly Osbourne looked all kinds of silver fox fabulous in her approximately 8,000 costume changes, we’d like to give a special shout-out to both Adam Lambert‘s blond streak/fabulous nail game and Eden Wood‘s hot purple number.”
The Hollywood Reporter – Adam Lambert, Josh Hutcherson Hit the NewNowNext Awards (Photos) “Lambert strikes a pose on the red carpet with Logos executive vice president/general manager, Lisa Sherman.”
MTV – Kelly Osbourne, Kat Graham, Rye Rye, And Adam Lambert Change Looks At NewNowNext Awards “Sigh. Glambert. There’s really nothing to say here other than yep, uh-huh, perf, yum-town, and glory glory hallelujah because, as you can see, Adam Lambert is killing it yet again with his goth glam majesty.”
Hot 99.5 Toby Knapp – ADAM LAMBERT: Pop Radio Programmers Being Polled About Second Single… “Pop music programmers are being polled by RCA label representatives about what they feel the second ADAM LAMBERT single should be this week across the country. According sources close to the label, the choice is between TWO songs from Lambert’s new CD. It’s not clear at this point what those songs are, as they’ve not been personally played for this writer at the time of this post. However, it’s known that the two are more uptempo, and are seen to be more “pop-palatable” by some working with the project than the current single, BETTER THAN I KNOW MYSELF…”
The Insider – THE TWO SIDES OF ADAM LAMBERT “I don’t know what the next single is yet. It hasn’t been decided. Because it’s not decided and I’m so in love with this song [Trespassing], I wanted to perform it for the fans. It’s a great introduction to the album and we wanted to take the opportunity to do that…The light side of Adam in the album is a bit more fierce than the sweater-wearing Adam you saw in the video. It’s really funky, has a lot of attitude and borrows a lot from house music. The dark side of the album is a bit more vulnerable. I’m dealing with the sadder, harder to take emotions. One of the things I think it accomplishes about me as a person is that sometimes you have to muster up pride and strength and courage to go out into the world and dare to be different. What lies beneath all of that posturing and peacocking is sometimes a bit more of a sensitive side. Something that might not be as strong. The beautiful thing about Trespassing is it shows my strengths and my weaknesses.”

Gather – Adam Lambert Heads East for Multiple Concerts “Adam Lambert’s fans in the northeastern states are in for a treat because he is set to perform at three radio station concert events in May. The appearances start on May 19 in Massachusetts, at KISS 108’s Kiss Concert 2012. The next night he will be part of 103.5 KTU’s KTUphoria event at PNC Bank Arts Center in New Jersey. It will be a busy few days for Adam, because he is also part of the lineup for Q102’s 2012 Springle Ball, which will take place on May 22 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. But Adam is not the only one jumping from concert to concert. Flo Rida and Enrique Iglesias will also be performing at all three events. Plus, there are likely to be many Glamberts concert-hopping as well!”
Gather – Adam Lambert’s Video Hits 5 Million Views “At the time it was released, the Better Than I Know Myself video shot to the top of VH1’s “Today’s Most Popular Music” and was still there several days later. One reason it continues to receive so many hits may be because Adam just travelled the country to promote his new album and sang this song at every stop. Often at these radio promo events he was asked about the video, which probably resulted in people later checking it out.”
After Elton – Video: What Should I Ask Adam Lambert at the NewNowNext Awards? “One of the highlights of my gig is the chance to talk to the glitter-drenched messiah himself, Adam Lambert. Since your questions are probably more important than mine, I’m seeking out your help. What should I ask Mr. Lambert if I grab a minute to chat with the tight-panted dude?”
Gather – Will Adam Lambert’s Next Single be ‘Never Close Our Eyes’? “A couple of tweets by Brian London this morning have led many to believe this, starting with this tweet: “Had rehearsal with @adamlambert yesterday. Brewing up something NEW and FRESH. You’re gonna wanna see this. Trust me. #myword.” Of course, Brian could have worked on any song with Adam at the rehearsal. But of interest is that according to his Twitter bio, Brian is the Music Director for Bruno Mars. Although sung by Adam, the song Never Close Our Eyes was written by Bruno Mars. When you consider this, maybe it’s not such a coincidence.”
Pressparty – Adam Lambert’s new musical director: “You’re gonna wanna see this” “Although London hasn’t revealed exactly what they are putting together, he confirmed that he is the star’s new musical director and also explained in response to a fan’s question that they are focusing on Lambert’supcoming American Idol and NewNextNow performances.”

“Thank you everybody for your congratulations, messages and gifts!! I got greetings even from New-Zealand:hereAwwwww!!! People, you are wonderful for remembering me and this is exactly why I want to write to you about what’s going on with me.It’s wonderful to bring you joy with these short pieces of text, but even more wonderful is to get an incredible amount of energy from you all to keep up with this. THANK YOU!!”
POP2it – Is Bruno Mars gay? Coming out story ‘completely fabricated,’ says rep “The report first surfaced on CNN iReport, a site described as a “compilation of news items submitted by citizen journalism.” Essentially — it’s the Wikipedia of news reporting. Anyone can update it with stories, photos, and video. Turns out, the whole thing was untrue. Mars’ rep tellsGossipCop that he said nothing of the sort, and that the “false” story was “completely fabricated.” iCNN has subsequently removed the story from its site.”
Gather – Adam Lambert Wraps Up US Promotion Tour “Adam Lambert has just wrapped up a month-long radio promotion tour for his upcoming album that spanned the United States. He visited radio markets such as Denver, Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, the Bay Area, and many others. In total, Adam was on the road promotingTrespassing for a month, ending the tour in San Diego on Friday. He has one last radio stop in his home town, Los Angeles, tomorrow at 104.3 MYfm.”
Adamtopia – Adam Lambert’s New Single Revealed Dateline April 1, 2012. “Fans of pop singer Adam Lambert awoke this morning to find that their favorite had revealed the second single from his forthcoming album Trespassing. Lambert used his Twitter account to make the announcement…Lambert promised an electrifying performance on the NewNowNext Awards. “We’ve been rehearsing for the last couple of days. Between naps, Tommy Joe’s gotten really good on the flute. People are in for a real treat!”
Translation from Finnish Youth Magazine Miss Mix “I’d like my fans to understand that everyone should do exactly what they themselves want to do, and little by little grow up to the person they’d want to be like. This is the message I try to convey on my new record: don’t be like me, be like you. I want to inspire people to be more free and do things that are characteristic to them. On any account do not copy me, since as a human being I’m far from a perfect one.”
The Final Countdown: 37 Things I Did for Best Week Ever We’re legit sobbing into our fig vodkas over the news that Michelle Collins is leaving Best Week Ever. See #19: “Met a Man Named Adam Lambert, And Then His Lovably Insane Fans. Of all the celebrities I’ve interviewed these past 6 years, nobody one elicited even close to the response that my time with Adam Lambert did. Then again, in my defense, I don’t believe any other interviewer out there served Adam straight up fig vodka made from her Grandmother’s secret recipe. (I shant ever reveal it.)””
Cosmo UK – Celebrity man watch 2012 “Woah, check out Adam Lambert all suited and booted posing for Fault magazine. We’re used to seeing him channeling his inner rock-star, but here he is looking very dapper indeed Plus, he looks WAY HOTTER clutching that cute pooch – aww!”
