EW – Trespassing (2012) Does this reviewer have a chip on her shoulder? More than 500 fans have spoken out so far, and Nile Rodgers weighed in too (see below). “Even after he came out in 2009, the eighth-season runner-up didn’t stop flirting with the straight crowd, indulging in classic-rock guitars and gender-neutral pronouns on his debut, For Your Entertainment.”

@JulianM6 @EW Melissa Maerz, FAIL- for only referring to @adamlambert‘s sexuality condescendingly in an article that’s supposed to be about his music

@adamlambert @JulianM6 eeeeew yeah she comes across as pretty ig’nant, huh? Haha

Art and Medicine – My husband’s letter to EW This response by @artistsupporter’s husband nails it! “..Beginning with comments regarding Mr. Lambert’s appearance “the only American Idol alum who considers purple eyeliner a daytime look”, she continued by implying that the eyeliner suggested his sexual orientation and because of it, it was high time he made his “big gay dance club album”.  To imply that Mr. Lambert should stick to the stereotype of creating dance club music because he is gay implies that gay artists should be pigeon-holed into the stereotypes society imposes upon them. …”

Jordan Meehan – An Open Letter to Melissa Maerz of Entertainment Weekly And this! ““A little makeup remover” cannot fix decades of inequality and discrimination, unequal legal status and intolerance, which are what Adam addresses in these songs, and it certainly cannot fix the unprofessionalism shown by Ms. Maerz in her review.”

Spin or Bin Music Exclusive: Hear Adam Lambert’s New Album ‘Trespassing′ Before The Official Release Here! “So many amazing songs on this album including Kickin’ in, Runnin’, Naked Love, Broken English, Chokehold, and Underneath. I am totally in love with disco workout track Cuckoo and can’t stop playing it.”

NileRodgers.com – Trust the Process (VIDEO) “It started with a tweet to me from Adam and Sam Sparro asking me to play on this funky track. After chatting a bit we realized that there was only one way this could happen. Without ever meeting each other, Adam and I booked a studio – and as John Taylor from Duran Duran would say, we decided to Trust the Process.”

New York Daily News – Gatecrasher “ADAM LAMBERT says success does not come with a sense of belonging. In the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, the “American Idol” veteran, who released a new album this week, claims: “I still feel like I’m not welcome” in the music biz. Lambert explains that a trip to the Grammy Awards in February left him feeling “really weird, like an outsider.” The openly gay Lambert also reveals straight sex is not a foreign concept to him. “I’m just a person that likes to try everything,” he says, “so I’ve tried everything.”

Dudes Act Like A Lady: ‘Call Me Maybe’ Takes Over YouTube (VIDEOS) Just swooning over this wonderful essay by Ann Powers. “The ending of the “Call Me Maybe” video also takes a Sobule-like step toward the proudly queer: after watching Jepsen perform, Hunk ambles up to the male guitarist and gives him the longed-for digits. Jepsen looks bummed, but not shocked. LGBTQ people are clearly a part of her world…It’s this twist that’s taken the “Call Me Maybe” story to a whole new level as it’s gone viral.”

Nile speaks out

@nilerodgersMusic Review: Trespassing, by Adam Lambert | http://EW.com

@nilerodgersMany people say HORRIBLE things about me that I post. BTW-I think it’s good for you to speak your feelings about this journalist’s views

@nilerodgersI always thank people for kind words, because I believe that words can hurt and heal.

@nilerodgersWhen I read reviews where people feel the need to talk about things that go beyond the artistic, I always wonder about motivation.

@nilerodgersAdam is one of the most talented cool people I’ve ever worked with. When we left the studio the way he treated a fan on the street..

@nilerodgers …spoke volumes!!!

Tommy Tweets

@TommyJoeRatliff@nilerodgers workin’ out ‘shady’ in rehearsal! 😉 the guitar stems are so sick! This is some fun shit 👍🔥🙌

@nilerodgers@TommyJoeRatliff I have 21 shows in a row coming up in a few days but I’m sure we’ll get a chance to link this year

@TommyJoeRatliff@nilerodgers ill hold ya too that. I wanna see the hitmaker in person! What year is it? Thing sound insane!

    loved the twitter party with Tommy and Nile

    EW needs to fire the lady who wrote that review because it is so obviously anti-gay…gay stereotyping…gay hate…etc…and not about the music itself. She is a jerk…big time. I would not care if her review was negative if it did not try to be anti-gay…but that is not the case…Get the hell rid of her EW…she was not professional at all.
