Adam Lambert Week – September 9-15, 2012
THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY
Thanks to Sistah Thea
The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

New Interview From South Africa!
Here’s a quiz from Adam Lambert Daily that tests your Glambert knowledge. How did you do?
DEPARTMENT OF EYE CANDY
Fie on the Fashion Police! We love Adam in harem pants!!
PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Broadway World E!’s FASHION POLICE to Take On Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week The hottest ticket in New York City this past week was for a front row seat at E!’s Fashion Police! In front of a stylish crowd of hundreds, Joan and her team entertained NY fashionistas along with the help of special guests Adam Lambert, NY Knick Amar’e Stoudemire, fashion designer Rachel Roy, “Man Repeller” blogger extraordinaire Leandra Medine, and top British designer Jenny Packham. Plus, Joan scored a rare and fascinating backstage interview with supermodel and pop icon, Naomi Campbell – who dishes on the biggest misconception about herself.
MTV Buzzworthy Star Spotting: Adam Lambert Holds A Barbie, Proving That (Platinum) Blondes Really Do Have More Fun (PHOTO) If there’s one thing we usually won’t question, it’s Adam Lambert’s hair. The guy’s head currently houses some of the most flawless David Bowie-looking locks EVER. But when the “American Idol” alum was snapped sharing the lens with the flawlessly blonde icon Barbie, we had to admit there was a moment of hair comparison. Don’t fret GLAMBERTS, OBVS Adam won by a landslide! (Yo Barbie, call us when you sport a coif, get a hardcore tattoo, and can hit major high notes like Adam — we’ll offer a rematch).
Adam in InRock Magazine October 2012 – “Here’s Adam’s Superhero look. He needs a name – can you think of one? The collar is the source of his power.” Xena
Next Magazine: Ugly Glammy Battle // Adam Lambert Paws Peppermint “Shades of Glambert Speaking of glam—and in a way more fun context—celeb spotting gay boys got a treat on Monday night when one of the glitziest superstars to come out (literally) of American Idol popped into Barracuda. Adam Lambert, sporting a frosty grey ’do, made an appearance at The Peppermint Show. Ms. Peppermint posted a photo via Facebook of the out singer getting a little handsy with her. Good thing those jugs aren’t real, mamma!”
Queerty Adam Lambert Debuted Silver Hair, Changed Outfit Three Times In One Day During Fashion Week FASHION WEEK: Diva Alert! Adam Lambert, with his newly dyed silver coiffure, got into the spirit of New York Fashion Week, flexing his sartorial muscle by slipping in and out of three different outfits on Tuesday. Starting off at Lincoln Center in a distressed gray suit jacket with a black button-up and brocade pants, Glambert then changed into a white color block top, black cummerbund and pants with white creepers then for the Falguni and Shane Peacock show — yeah, we’ve never heard of them either. Finally for The Blonds, she put on a full(er) face and added some leather touches to this all black ensemble, seen above, that’s giving more than a little Bea Arthur realness. Werq, hunty.
iAfrica.com ADAM LAMBERT to Play in SA “Big Concerts announce that global superstar Adam Lambert will be touring South Africa for the first time this November, with performances scheduled in Cape Town on Tuesday 13 November at the Grand Arena, GrandWest and in Johannesburg on Friday 16 November at the Coca-Cola Dome.
Adam Lambert came to prominence following his appearance on the eighth season of American Idol. Although he was runner-up, Lambert launched a succesful music career with the release of his first studio album For Your Entertainment which debuted at number three on the Billboard 200, selling 198,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week, and reaching the top 10 in several countries worldwide. The album achieved international success with its singles For Your Entertainment, Whataya Want from Me and If I Had You….”

NewNowNext While You Were Working: Adam Lambert, Silver Fox “Adam Lambert has taken the gray hair he’s been sporting this summer to an even shinier level, showing it off at New York fashion week. Silver fox alert!”
Gossip Center- Adam Lambert: Front Row at Falguni & Shane for NYFW (photos to DIE for!!) “Taking in the latest fashions, Adam Lambert was seated front row at the Falguni & Shane Peacock Spring 2013 fashion show in New York City on Tuesday (September 11).The former “American Idol” contestant rocked a black and white tuxedo inspired top with black pants as he sported a new grey hairstyle for NYFW…”
Janet Charlton’s Hollywood- Adam Lambert and Kelly Osborn Think Alike [PHOTO] Kelly Osbourne has been taking a lot of flak for her dyed grey hair (she lost her Material Girl job because she looked too mature) but apparently she has at least ONE admirer: Adam Lambert! Adam and Kelly were the only young people to show up at Fashion Week in New York with grey hair and we wonder if they’ll start a trend. Every once in awhile Lady Gaga wears a grey wig, but you couldn’t call her committed to the color.
Just Jared- Adam Lambert: Falguni & Shane Peacock at NYFW “Adam Lambert is all smiles at the Falguni and Shane Peacock fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Tuesday (September 11) in New York City. The 30-year-old entertainer showed off his rock star style wearing a tuxedo inspired top with black pants and a bow tie. PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Adam Lambert That same day, Adam switched up his outfit as he attended an event at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. Next month, Adam can be seen on the Halloween episode of the hit ABC Family show Pretty Little Liars.”
MTV Style: Adam Lambert Switches Up His Outfit Three Times In One Day At NYFW “Sure, we’ve seen TONS of celebs at fashion week sporting their finest designer duds all over Lincoln Center, but we hadn’t seen anyone switch up their ensemble more than once a day until *drum roll* Mr. Adam Lambert. Yesterday he changed outfits not once, not twice, but THREE times within the daylight hours, and for that, we need to bow down, y’all…”
After Elton: Pic Post! Adam Lambert Rules Fashion Week, Surveys Subjects (lots of pretty photos) “New York’s Fashion Week is in full swing, and among the luminaries is one of our favorite people in the Glitterverse, Adam Lambert. He’s been roaming around the last couple of days, taking in shows and leaving whiffs of fabulousness in his wake. We have a selection of Adam Fashion Week pics for you to enjoy. I especially love the Xanadu waiter.”
E Online American Idol: Seven Celebs Who Won’t Be Judges (and Three Who Might) “Adam Lambert: One of the most famous alums of American Idol, Lambert was the frontrunner back in early July. “He personifies the show, and will be a popular choice right from the start,” a source told us. “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.” Word is his name is still on the table, but Fox is now headed in a different direction.”

Short article on Adam Lambert in this week’s Who magazine (Australia) – pic.twitter.com/Tasqs5un (via @FierceMama_):
Some NFL player defends the right to free speech (and equal marriage) Too friggin’ awesome not to share. (Warning – this from-the-heart response is laced with profanity.) “Baltimore Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo has spoken out in favor of a Maryland ballot initiative that would legalize gay marriage. Yahoo has published a letter that Maryland state delegate Emmett C. Burns Jr. wrote last week to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, urging him to “inhibit such expressions from your employee.” This is Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe‘s response to Burns.”

AOL Radio – Adam Lambert, ‘Trespassing’ — New Song “Though the beat is catchy and drives the song, it’s Lambert’s powerful voice that pushes the song over the edge. His voice made him who he is today, and it’s only fitting that his voice be the highlight of the track. The chorus hits the hardest and shows what Lambert can do vocally.”
Wet Paint – If Enrique Iglesias Passes on American Idol, Adam Lambert Could Be Fourth Judge: Report “Last night, Entertainment Weekly added that Enrique Iglesias has received a firm offer for a judging spot…The new report also left the door open forIdol alumnus Adam Lambert to be the fourth judge, if Enrique should pass…”
Examiner – Is Adam Lambert set to appear on E!’s ‘Fashion Police’? “Although no official announcement has been made, according to the TV Guide listing, Adam will be appearing on September 14 on E! Entertainment Television’s “Fashion Police.” Starring Joan Rivers, Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic and George Kotsiopoulos, the hosts discuss the dos and don’ts of celebrity fashion. Since the next two episodes will be coming from “inside New York Fashion Week,” it sounds like Adam will be in New York for the big event.”
Examiner – Adam Lambert’s ‘Better Than I Know Myself’ video goes ‘Pop Up’ (Video) “The pop-up video for Adam’s song has many interesting facts, including some not known by even the most hard-core fans. For example, one factoid is that the video producer’s iPad was stolen from him to use as part of the set for the music video!” Click on the article to navigate to the Pop Up video.
