Thanks to Adamholic for capping this! Read it here.
Adam clarifies that he has “stuff” happening in September, but doesn’t know of any “special job”. So are we back in Idol judgeship limbo? In other breaking news, he still owns that poncho, and the new single is “fast”. Juneau thinks it will be “Naked Love”. What’s your guess?
“@nozomilambert: @adamlambert loooook！i drew u ！ pic.twitter.com/S779hQDG” I love it. Very Japan.

Ever since Adam tweeted about “stuff” happening in September, speculation has run like a wildfire through the fandom. A fan set off fresh rumors by tweeting a comment posted (and now deleted) from the Facebook page of Steven “Visage” Strange, a contemporary of Boy George. This comment was posted in May:
Steve Strange (born Steven John Harrington, 28 May 1959) is a Welsh pop singer, best known as the lead singer and frontman of the 1980s pop group Visage. Since the late 1970s he has also been a prominent nightclub host and promoter…In Strange’s 2002 autobiography Blitzed! he speaks about his heroin addiction, his nervous breakdown, his sexuality, and the ongoing attempts to get his life back together…In 2005, Strange appeared in a Channel 4 documentary called Whatever Happened To The Gender Benders?, which reflected on the advent of the New Romantic movement of the early 1980s and the prominent roles that Strange, Boy George and Marilyn each played within it. In stark contrast to the relative glamour of the New Romantic era, interviews with all three stars in the present day highlighted the sheer devastation that fame, fortune and drug addiction had taken on each of them during the past 25 or so years, with Strange and Marilyn in particular being openly candid about the mental health problems they now try to cope with every day.

ADAM LAMBERT V. CHICK-FIL-A: “Last week was Chick-fil-A “appreciation day” across the country. It was a day of support for founder S. Truett Cathy’s son Dan Cathy’s stance against gay marriage. Cathy has admitted that he supports what he claims is the “the biblical definition of the family unit” and that gay marriage invites “God’s judgment on our nation.” Cathy does not just hold these beliefs, but spends millions of dollars supporting organizations that disperse the most offensive kind of anti-gay rhetoric and hate.” More on this from The Advocate.

Hard work and promotion does yield results (oh and talent too, don’t forget that!)On Monday of this week Adam Lambert performed on Japanese TV singing his album title track ‘Trespassing’ he of course sang totally live without any backing singers and with his live band. Sukkiri TV looks like a totally bonkers show and it was a bit weird just having those three presenters sitting there (at least one of them clapped along though!).The performance ensured a surge in sales of his new album, it has since risen to number 7 on Japan’s Amazon chart and is at 57 overall in the iTunes chart (up from number 249 within 24 hours!)”
From The Examiner: Adam Lambert sings a cappella while communing with nature (Video) “Adam Lambert was interviewed in an atypical location this week – a Japanese traditional garden. Sporting a tank top, spiked shorts, leather gloves, and boots, Adam hung out in the garden while he talked about his album for the “SHOWBIZ BRAVO!” segment of Japan’s NTV ZIP. Of course this is not the norm for him and when asked if he gets to do interviews outside, Adam responded, “Not very often. This is definitely different. This is different, but it’s nice to be able to see all the nature. It’s a lot more stimulating that sitting in an office.””
