Adam Lambert Daily Update – May 23, 2012
@adamlambert: Excited to see the official Billboard 200 when it comes out tomorrow! 😉
PressParty – Adam Lambert tops chart and makes history in the USA with ‘Trespassing’ “The dreaded sophomore slump is something Lambert won’t have to contend with as he is is currently leading the chart with his new record, and this impressive feat has made him the first openly gay recording artist to achieve a No.1 album in America.”
Hits Daily Double ADAM LAMBERT IDOLS AT #1 “You don’t necessarily have to win American Idol to have a successful pop music career. Adam Lambert, who finished second in the eighth season of the Fox music competition to champion Kris Allen, sees his sophomore 19/RCA album, Trespassing, debut at #1 on this week’s HITS chart, selling nearly 78k.”
NEW VIDEO TEASER
Much Music – WATCH A TEASER VIDEO FOR ADAM LAMBERT’S NEVER CLOSE OUR EYES “In the teaser clip, Adam is seen running through halls with a group of friends in what looks like an attempt to avoid uniformed soldiers who are chasing the group. Cameras follow the ‘rebels’ as they move through hallways, dressed in t-shirts and running shoes. Lambert’s Brave New World-theme video even includes the singer in a machine that looks like it’s going to scan his retina’s for easy tracking by the soldiers. Thirty seconds in and I’m already hooked on this video!”
Adam Lambert, Train to Headline Jenkinson’s Summer Blast-Off Friday (New Jersey) “The free event, scheduled from 6 to 10 a.m. and featuring performances by Lambert, Train and The Bobby Lynch Cover Band, will be hosted by Scott & Todd from the 95.5 FM WPLJ morning show, according to WPLJ. The annual Jenkinson’s summer kick-off typically draws huge crowds, and, in recent years, those who are serious about getting inside for the big-name concerts camp out as early as 9 p.m. the night before.“
AOL Music – Adam Lambert Sessions: Glambert’s ‘Dark Side,’ Plans for Fatherhood & ‘Trespassing’ (Video of “Never Close Our Eyes”) “I have a godson. Two good friends of mine have a baby, and he’s amazing, and watching him from infancy to now — he’s still a toddler — it’s just like, it’s amazing. It’s amazing. Amazing to watch a child grow and to see things through their eyes, I mean it’s so easy for them and it’s so simple for them, and it’s inspiring.”
UPDATE – We have taken down the YouTubes because we learned that hits on the AOL Sessions count towards the Billboard chart listings.
