Gather – Adam Lambert performs new cover ‘Is This Love’ (Video) “Adam Lambert treated fans to a new cover song while performing in Australia last night. Much to the delight of those in attendance, he surprised everyone by singing Bob Marley’s “Is This Love.” Adam told the crowd that he was listening to the song on plane while heading to Australia and it always puts him in a good mood.”
What we found out was that if Adam wasn’t a musician he would be a social worker or a psychologist, if he could have dinner with anyone dead or alive it would be Freddie Mercury, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin and his most surreal moment was taking to the stage with Queen.
When asked what it is like to be so loved he responded “sweaty” and when asked to name his top three moments he listed performing with Queen, American Idol and “being right here!”.

A nice bump in Facebook Likes and YouTube spins after a week in Japan!
Adam follows Mariah Carey, and Twitter explodes with speculation! Does this mean Adam will join her as a judge on American Idol? Or is he just teasing us, like a kid dropping confetti into a pond full of hungry koi? While we’re at it, check out who else Adam followed recently. Hmm, Lena Dunham? Is he going to do a cameo on her hit show Girls? We’re most stoked about kd lang – hearing him in a duet with the great kd is on our bucket list!! They are both managed by DMG…if he wanted to make it happen, it would…! (Is anyone listening?)

Glambert, you can trespass into our lives any day! Deets about his shopping problem are revealed, and Adam tells us why he has to lock away his credit card.”
The Hollywood Reporter- Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban Nearing ‘American Idol’ Deals “Minaj and Urban have been in talks for weeks withIdol producers Fox, FremantleMedia and CORE Media Group’s 19 Entertainment. THR first revealed last Friday that Idol wanted Minaj but the flamboyant rapper’s Pepsi sponsorship was irking Idol partner Coke. Those issues have apparently been worked out and Minaj will receive around $8 million to join the show with additional allowances for wardrobe, hair and makeup. Minaj could sign on the dotted line as soon as today or early next week, adds the source.”

MTV: Adam Lambert Covers Bob Marley’s ‘Is This Love’ And DUH It’s Incredible (VIDEO)! “Covering a Bob Marley song can be a dangerous and potentially tragic undertaking because, well, you are not Bob Marley. But — surprise surprise — Adam Lambert totally nailed it! Also, do you really think a dude who got a gigantic music-themed tattoo in Latin on his forearm is gonna mess up Marley cover? Prolly not because he’s FOCUSED ON HIS CRAFT, to reference Tenacious D. The newly glammed-out Lambert stopped by the Take 40 Lounge in Australia to put his own spin on Marley’s classic, “Is This Love.” And it’s BEYOND.”
Huffington Post – WATCH: Rocker Adam Lambert Channels Bob Marley For ‘Is This Love?’ – Any Good? (Video) “The former US Idol star surprised his audience with a rendition of Bob Marley’s Is This Love... and didn’t disgrace himself, judging by the reaction.”

RyanSeacrest.com – Adam Lambert Goes Down Under With Bob Marley [VIDEO] “After his hugely successful sophomore album, Trespassing, Lambert took his show overseas, touring both Japan and Australia. During a cozy concert, Lambert took on the Bob Marley hit “Is This Love,” and tweeted the performance to his fans!”
He regards body art as a ”grown-up scrapbook” but believes younger people should wait until they go under the needle.
”I think it’s a really cool way to mark times and events when you are older and know that putting something on your body is something you will have to live with,” he said.
”It’s like a stamp in your passport.”
MTV – Star Spotting: Adam Lambert’s Glam Game Is More On Point Than Ever! (PHOTOS) “Looks like Adam Lambert is showing no signs of quitting his glamathon anytime soon, guys! First he went platinum blond, and then he got a gigantic tattoo in Latin on his forearm. And this just in — a stun-ning photo of Adam DOMINATING the smokey-eye look while resembling a young David Bowie. Next, expect him to ride in on a real-life unicorn (like in this masterpiece), because if anyone can make an mystical animal magically and miraculously appear out of thin air, it’s Adam.”
The Hollywood Reporter – ‘Pretty Little Liars’ Web Series to Debut Later This Month “Here are the details of this year’s Halloween episode, which will feature Adam Lambert: “The local Halloween store in Rosewood is a busy place these days and a good spot for someone who wants to keep tabs on certain people. But as the usual suspects come in and out of the store, will they find more than just the ultimate Halloween costume?””

The Hollywood Gossip – American Idol Season 12 Judges Rumored To Be… “According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers are hoping to cover every musical gamut, from rap to country to Latin. Along those lines, its top choices would be:
- Nicki Minaj
- Keith Urban
- Enrique Igelsias
One hold-up, however, is that Minaj is the new Pepsi spokesperson and Idol is notorious for its overt advertising deal with Coca-Cola.“
CarterMatt.com – ‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert, Nick Jonas, Scotty McCreery “Unfortunately, we have a feeling that interest in both Adam and Nick has cooled as of late, since most attention from Fox these days seems to be coming courtesy of Nicki Minaj a country artist, and possibly Enrique Iglesias.”
