Adam Lambert Week – December 23-29, 2012
realadamlambert: It’s dat season!
Again, Christmas is behind us and the year changes soon! Christmas was very enjoyable in San Diego. Even though this was my first Christmas outside of Finland, we still had a wonderful Christmas atmosphere. On Christmas Day we went for a walk in San Diego’s Balboa Park. It was just an incredibly gorgeous place. The park had a beautiful cactus garden. Christmas Day we went to spend the evening friends, Anaheim-Irvine. It was a fun Christmas! Now I’m going to Bali! Tomorrow! HAPPY NEW YEAR! xoxo / S

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Top 10 Adam Lambert Moments of 2012 “This was an important year for Adam Lambert, with the release of his sophomore album, Trespassing. In many ways, this was the year Adam truly embarked on his journey as an independent artist. Here are what for us were the most significant events of the year. I’m sure we missed many others! Please weigh in on your top moments!”
Rolling Stone – The Hottest Live Photos of 2012 – by Christie Goodwin
Huffington Post – Gay Cultural Moments Of 2012: Adam Lambert, ‘The New Normal,’ ‘Glee’ And More! “And indeed, the year in music, movies, TV and theater is similarly flush with milestones. “American Idol” alum Adam Lambert not only hosted VH1’s popular “Divas Live” show this fall, but he also became the first openly gay pop artist to top the album charts back in May.”
@lyndseyparker: Omigawd, a lot of good music came out in 2012. Finally got my top 10 list in order:
1. Diamond Rings – Free Dimensional
2. Adam Lambert – Trespassing
3. Foxy Shazam – The Church Of Rock And Roll
4. Grimes – Visions
5. The Darkness – Hot Cakes
6. Sleigh Bells – Reign Of Terror
7. Light Asylum – Light Asylum
8. Sam Sparro – Return To Paradise
9. Frank Ocean – Channel Orange
10. Beach House – Bloom
VH1 – The People, By The People: The Top 40 Most-Watched Videos of 2012 Adam Lambert’s “Better Than I Know Myself” comes in at #4!!! And “Never Close Our Eyes” comes in at #36.
Flecking Records – Adam takes a slew of year-end recognitions:
- Male Star Of The Year
- Male Musician Of The Year
- Never Close Our Eyes is Song Of The Year
- Sexiest Male Of The Year
- Male Fashion Icon Of The Year
- Male Twitterer Of The Year
- Adam Lambert’s Trespassing hit is your Good News Of The Year
VH1 Celebrity – Justin Bieber, Rihanna, 1-D & More Get Inked Up In 2012: The 20 Best & Worst Tattoos Of The Year Adam’s “Musica delenit bestiam feram” tattoo is ranked 9th, although the post neglects to say whether that’s best or worst…
New York Times – Many Hats of Chris Colfer “Surely, Kurt has served as a role model for countless gay teenagers. But the vast majority of his admirers, he said, are girls, who shower him with photo albums and even erotic fan fiction (“more than most of my male co-stars”). Tumblr is rife with fan pages dedicated to Kurt and Blaine (a k a Klaine)…” Sound familiar?
LambertLust – FIASCO Magazine HD scans Feast your eyes again, and read the article! “”I kind of reinvent myself day to day. And I don’t use the word reinvent as some kind of pretentious thing. I want to work a look one day and another look another day. I don’t see it as reinventing – there’s a natural change in taste that can happen….it’s not as conscious as people think it is. Most people look different over three years!” He laughs at the realization that jumps into his mind. “It’s not different to normal people, it’s just that more people are looking at me!””
Saulin Hollywood – Divas – English translation by Miachihu (@miachihu) & Zinnia (@Tiiqqu), posted on December 22nd, 2012. “Sorry that my blog is so late again. There’s been this move thing going on now and I’ve been having big net connection problems!!… The Divas Show last Sunday was amazing and my siippa managed to pull it trough pretty well!! The atmosphere was really nice and relaxed and we really had fun in the audience.”
Best Albums Of 2012 – Numbers 10 To 6 – Trespassing come in at #8 “The album might have made the headlines by being the first album by an openly gay singer to top the Billboard 200 in America, but Trespassing should be on more people’s radar’s for purely musical reasons. An outstanding pop-rock album that revels in what it is and deserves to put Lambert in the upper echelons of the genre.”

Classic Rock Magazine – My fears over fronting QueenMy fears over fronting Queen “It’s important to me to have my own body of work, but after those shows I came home far more confident and well-rounded. I’m not going to lie – it made me go: “Ha-ha! Look what I just did!” I’m proud of myself.”

These include Scissor Sisters’ gay anthem of the year, “Let’s Have a Kiki,” Adam Lambert’s wonderfully flamboyant sophomore album,Trespassing, as well as his performance of Madonna’s “Ray of Light” during VH1’s recent Divas Live concert…”
Radio Alice: My Top 10 Music Moments Of 2012 by Jayn:
“#7. Adam Lambert at Summerthing. I don’t think I could love Adam any more than I do. I have that creepy “we’d really be best friends if we really could just spend some time together, for real” love for him. His set at Summerthing only made things worse ’cause he was perfect in every way, from his backstage fierceness to his ‘destroy the Earth’ set onstage that included a tribute to Donna Summer that you had to see to believe. Seriously, Adam. Call me.”
Yahoo Voices – Adam Lambert, Best Artist of 2012 “As 2013 approaches us, I am looking forward to what Adam Lambert has in store because so far everything he has demonstrated has been unforgettable and nothing less than amazing. It wasn’t a hard decision at all. Adam Lambert is clearly 2012’s Artist of the Year.”
Ryan Seacrest – 2012 Album of the Year: Adam Lambert’s Trespassing “After weeks of voting, we have narrowed down the top 10 albums of 2012 to one! After racking up thousands of votes, the public has decided and the best album of the year goes to Adam Lambert’s Trespassing! Congrats Adam!”
