Adam Lambert Daily Update – July 10, 2012
TRESPASSING DOES IT AGAIN
Adam Lambert, Trespassing
Read the RS review: “So here’s the great pop album everybody was hoping Adam Lambert would make, ever since he ran wild on American Idol three years ago . . . All over Trespassing, Glambert sings everything like Zeus in a thong.”
RUMOR MILL RUNS AMUK
“What a beautiful rumor” – Adam on being considered for American Idol judge
E!- NEWS/American Idol Shakeup: Fox Considering Adam Lambert as Judge “They have been talking about Adam for over a month,” a source exclusively tells E! News. “He personifies the show, and will be a popular choice right from the start. He knows what it’s like to be on the receiving end of the judges’ comments, he has a human touch, and they know they can’t go wrong if they bring him on. He would be able to bring a unique perspective to the show. People love him.”
MSNBC – ‘American Idol’ shakeup could bring in Adam Lambert as judge “Updated at 3:24 p.m. PT: Sources confirm exclusively that along with Adam Lambert, “Idol’s” big bosses are also considering some other notable names to join the cast, including: Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry and (frequent “A.I.” mentor) will.i.am.”
The media has had a field day. Outlets rehashing the story include the New York Daily News, Hollywood Reporter, ABC News, MTV, CNN, Los Angeles Times, Billboard, Rolling Stone, USA Today, Huffington Post and even The Atlantic (whoa! Is this the voice of the new Atlantic?).
TV Line – Adam Lambert as American Idol Judge? Four Reasons He’d Be a Great Addition And finally, Michael Slezak rides in to save us from the inanity: “Love him or hate him, it’s unlikely Lambert’s contributions as an Idol judge would be sanitized or boring — and those new tricks might be exactly what the old dog in the reality singing genre needs to combat viewer erosion…Lambert’s monster voice is one of the most formidable in the current pop scene, and unlike, say, J.Lo: Mistress of Auto-Tune, he’s got the technical knowledge to offer instructive, insightful critiques that go beyond telling contestants they were “pitchy”…Lambert is well known for his quick wit, puckish demeanor, and outsize charisma…perhaps his weekly presence on the show would finally squelch the sense of gay panic”
MTV Buzzworthy – The Thought Of Adam Lambert As An ‘American Idol’ Judge Gives Us Another Reason To Live “You know how sometimes you say that if you get the one thing you really want, you’ll never ask for anything else ever? Well, if Adam Lambert actually becomes an “American Idol” judge, we promise we’ll never ask for anything else ever in our lives!! NOT EVEN ON HANUKKAH.”
Let the Polling begin!!
And why not our own poll? Here:
The Livestream chat scheduled for earlier on Monday went south when the server crashed (those Glamberts did it again!). Adam Tweeted: “@adamlambert: I’m sitting here waiting to do thi live chat! The computer program is all screwed up 😦 I’m sorry you all are waiting…” Word is it will be re-scheduled. That’s just as well because the live web chat on Capital FM was enough fabulosity for one day…
Here’s the live chat (capped by @GaleChester)
Adam answers questions about pick-up lines, the fame thing, Jack Black rock-off challenge, favorite Queen songs to perform, fav Glam Nation outfit, doesn’t know what Yorkshire pudding is, favorite cartoon dog, what he thinks about when he’s performing (“nice rack” LOL!), how much cash he has on him, top diet tips (“no pudding”), when he would go back to if he had a time machine.
