Adam Lambert Daily Update – May 26, 2012
NEVER CLOSE OUR EYES (BEHIND THE SCENES)
Just as the video for “Better Than I Know Myself” was a major advance artistically for Adam, this new video promises to be another quantum leap in sophistication. And the image of Adam on his knees scrubbing the floor – it’s so incongruously HOT. Go figure.
@adamlambert: Great to see so many familiar faces!!! Excited for the show. 98.5 KRZ Wilkes-Barre/Scranton PA at The FM Kirby Center, Wilkes-Barre, PA. 7:30pm EDT.
“I’m not talking about taking off your clothes…”
“This is a song about you… cuz you’re all crazy”
Adam is getting more and more relaxed and chatty with each show. This is why fans can’t get enough. Every show gets better and better!

Village Voice (blog) 100 & Single: Answering Questions On Adam Lambert’s Historic Chart-Topping Album – A great follow-up to the writer’s previous column. “The event I didn’t think could happen was Adam Lambert scoring a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 album chart with his second disc, Trespassing. But I sure was wrong, and it sure is fun: By reaching the penthouse, Adam becomes the first out gay artist …”
QTheMusic – Q&a Adam Lambert – How to get from American Idol to working with Pharrell, Nile Rodgers & Queen “[Sam Sparro and I] did a B-side around my last album called Voodoo which I really regretted didn’t go on the album because it’s strong. I looked at the songs I enjoyed performing from that record and the songs that went down well live, and I took a cue from that for this album, an electro, disco, funk feel is something I wanted to chase down. Pharrell opened the door for that and said, This what you should do and with Sam we created two more songs. Shady is one of them and we have Nile Rodgers playing on it. It’s about wanting to get nasty and wanting to get into trouble.” Q. Back up a second, Nile Rodgers?…” Hahaha, Adam is conquering Britain!!
Cheeky Chicago – Watch Out, Christina…Adam Lambert Is Back “Glam rocker Adam Lambert stole the limelight at 103.5 KISS FM’s annual Fantabuloso. Though his songs may not be at the top of the iTunes singles chart, Lambert’s voice shone like no other. That man can sing!”
The Hollywood Reporter – Adam Lambert Insults Clay Aiken on Bravo’s ‘Watch What Happens’ (Video) “Besides being runners-up on the Fox competition, Lambert and Aiken also share a penchant for candor — and, apparently, bad blood on either side. In 2009, Aiken launched a bitter 2009 tirade against Lambert, one of whose TV performances he slammed as “awful,” “contrived” and “slightly frightening.”
NILE ON DISCO
The Sun – ‘Disco was most liberated music ever. Gay or straight, black or white… we were all equal’ – Nile Rodgers “I will boldly say that disco music is the most liberated type of music ever. It’s a feeling, there’s something magical about it. I had never heard anything like Donna Summer and the Bee Gees when they started doing disco. For the first time in my life I saw people get together, from every ethnicity and nationality, to dance. Disco was multi-racial. Everyone — whatever their race or sexuality — felt equal for the first time.“
