HAPPY TURKEY DAY!
The Glamily in Hong Kong
@plumcomm: @adamlambert We love YOU! For all the music, drama, joy, excitement, thrills, friends, excellence, passion, compassion, acceptance and love you’ve shared on this amazing journey. Thanks for a larger-than-life ride of a lifetime! Happy 3rd FYE.
From The Salon Archives – Breaking Open Adam Lambert, CD Review “Adam chooses songs that speak to him, and the ones he has assembled for his debut album capture that intense state of youthful desire, the fire that burns as you prowl the club scene, brimming with bravado and horniness, that tamps down in the after hours and early morning light to a yearning for love and connection. It reawakens for me the feelings I wrote about many moons ago in my first posting on wowowow, about the excitement, the aliveness of being twenty, out with friends dancing until dawn, flirting, hooking up – it’s a glittery, evanescent Floating World. As Adam says, it’s not that deep, and yet it is. After all, love and desire have fueled the arts for millennia, and these themes never grow old.”
ADAM LAMBERT, MAN OF VIRTUE
“He is a man for this time, a person who has taken a door that opened unto him and has made his mission one of hope, peace and love.” – Lisa Fowler

Examiner – Adam Lambert celebrates 3-year anniversary of ‘For Your Entertainment’ album ““For Your Entertainment” debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 all-genre charts and it has been certified gold in the United States; moreover, it has been certified platinum outside of America in such countries as Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The album featured his Grammy-nominated hit “Whataya Want From Me,” which reached No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts; subsequently, his song “If I Had You” peaked in the Top 30.”
Swisscom – “Thank you, Adam Lambert!” (From German, via Google Translate, a blog post by the drummer who played with Adam in Australia.) “Thanksgiving is also superior to the Swiss in Los Angeles, for which they are thankful. When drummer Fabian Egger it is a gig with the glamrockers Adam Lambert.”
Gather- Adam Lambert Performs at Mercedes-Benz Event (Video) “Adam is spending Thanksgiving in Asia this year and will be there for a while. Next up is Hong Kong, where he will be at the 2012 Mnet Asian Music Awards on November 30 at 7pm (KST).” Here’s the official video from the Mercede Benz event in Guanghzhou (via @GaleWhittington):
Sauli Koskinen’s Thanksgiving Blog with Translation by @moominbert – “This year, I’m celebrating Thanksgiving with friends, because my ”siippa” is across the globe. 😉 I actually have three Thanksgiving dinners in one day. I’ve of course promised to go to each. whew.. Maybe I’ll end up eating at the first, drinking at the second, and sleeping at the third. hah!…”
Times LIVE – Adam Lambert should be made a goodwill ambassador: iLIVE “Adam has managed to bring his gift to all corners of this world and all countries have embraced him. That is an achievement that I think we need to take notice of. His popularity is not just based on his talent, though I think he is fantastic in that way, but it is based on his showing love, acceptance and joy to all people of all nations.”

Instinct – Video: Adam Lambert Says A Collaboration Might Be In The Works For ‘VH1 Divas’ “Adam hints that we can expect him to duet with one of the “divas” being honored by VH1 this year. Which of the 2012 VH1 Divas do you want to see duet with Adam?? ”
Elle Magazine Finland December 2012 issue – Article about Sauli. English Translation.
Times Live – Adam Lambert and The Drums electrify Johannesburg “Let me say this; I am not particularly a fan of Lambert. But I have to admit, this showman is bloody talented. His voice is stunning and his entertainment factor is through the roof. I’ve been to some epic shows and this one, even with its basic artist-dance troupe setup, was up there with one of the greats.”
jacaranda fm – Glam & Skinner: Adam Lambert “So all Glamberts in Johannesburg had their boots on, with the right amount of leather and they did themselves up with a black colour liner. They were working their strut to the Coca Cola Dome in Jozi, for Adam Lambert’s Trespassing Tour – and the only thing they needed was some love!“
The Insider – ADAM LAMBERT TAKES THE ‘DIVA’ TEST “VH1 might get in trouble for choosing Adam Lambert to host their 2012 Divas concert because, for the first time in franchise history, the host has better pipes than the Divas taking to the stage.”
MTV – Star Spotting: Adam Lambert Gives THE Best Hugs, And We’d Really Like One (PHOTO) “Don’t be fooled by Adam Lambert‘s edgy Glampire/platinum blond rock star style, because at the end of the day, he has one of the softest hearts EVER! Just look at this photo of the “Trespassing” singer giving a little girl a giant hug in South Africa. This scene is officially on our list of “Adam Lambert’s Most Poetic Moments” — also on this list is seeing Adam ride a Lisa Frank-ish unicorn.”
US Weekly – Celebrities who love ‘Twilight’ “Adam Lambert: The “American Idol” runner-up publicly lobbied to get his song “Suburban Decay” on one of the sagas soundtracks. “Hey, ‘Eclipse,'” he asked during an interview with MTV in 2009, “want my song?” Lambert dubbed the tune “too theatrical” for his album, and noted that it contained a verse about “bloodlust.”
Celebrity Gossip – Adam Lambert Meets A Tiny Tot Fangirl “The American Idol finalist was the recipient of ecstatic 6-year-old Erin Korcz’s affection. The youngster, who followed Lambert’s run on the hit talent show, gave him a big hug at his appearance at a radio station.”
Poetsandall’s Blog – Adam Lambert Live in South Africa!!! Review by Ashlee Zlotnick. “One of the best things of the night was when Adam laughed. His laugh is so contagious and turned everyone in that room into screaming little girls. The atmosphere was astonishing, the sound was great and Adam made everyone believe that anything is possible if you just believe. He went from boy born in Indianapolis but raised in San Diego to a total singing sensation. He has by far the best stage presence I have ever seen and I have seen a lot of people performing! The night ended and no-one wanted to go home. We gathered in the pouring rain and started to sing his songs and dance in the rain. A night I will never forget!”
Examiner – Adam Lambert makes a little girl’s dream come true (photos) “Adam Lambert made a little girl’s dream come true this week when she got to meet her idol and interview him like a true journalist. Seven year old Erin Korcz adores Adam and has since she first saw him on American Idol three years ago.” Read more.
Tonight – Pop star Lambert ‘having a blast in SA’ ““The one thing I loved about the Cape Town concert is that the crowd was so diverse. There were black people and white people all jumping to my music. I loved it.””
American Music Awards 2012 – Top 10 American Music Awards Moments: Past AMAs’ Video Highlights. “The annual pop spectacle has produced dozens of memorable moments and performances, from the quiet grace of Madonna’s duet with Babyface in 1995 to the controversial sexuality of Adam Lambert in 2009 to the historic collaboration of “We Are The World” in 1986.”
Celebuzz – American Music Awards 2012: 7 Memorable Performances in AMA History (VIDEOS) “Lambert found himself in a heap of controversy after his highly suggestive performance of “For Your Entertainment,” during which he locked lips with his male keyboardist.” And they’re still talking about it three years later! Goes to show there’s no such thing as bad publicity…

@Vanglam: @adamlambert drawing by Miguel Pereyra. A geography teacher for 12 years, I work in the neediest schools in Buenos Aires. A few months ago, i showed to my student Miguel, who made this drawing, the video of Adam singing “Crying” on American Idol & he was delighted with his voice. He studies in a high school specializing in Arts, located in “Fuerte Apache” (one of the poorest neighborhoods of my city, is a place similar to Bronx) . A few weeks ago, i gave him , one of the Trespassing CDs donated by fans of USA to argentine fans. And he loved the album pics of Trespassing. Today, he gave me this beautiful surprise. The kids who go to this school are very suffered. And they have many narrow circumstances. They live daily situations of violence & economic & emotional deprivation & poverty. Accordingly i felt moved by this beautiful gesture of love! Miguel is a true artist Apologies for my poor english, i used Google Traslate! Bye dear Glamily!!
