CHINESE MAGAZINE INTERVIEW
@glam_alidol: @adamlambert new interview on Sina Entertainment main page ent.sina.com.cn/y/2013-01-30/1… http://pic.twitter.com/F3G9y5oK
Translation by maddie509 from http://atop.proboards.com/user/752/recent#ixzz2JTlB5Utj
I won’t translate word for word ‘cuz most of it aren’t news to us, so just gonna cherry-pick a few that stand out, at least to me.
(Note: this is a translation from Chinese which is subject to the interviewer’s interpretation and understanding, so please proceed with “caution” on certain topic. )
1) Trespassing will be officially released in China, soon (sounds like around the concert time).
2) Zhang Wei, the singer duet with Adam on the Voice of China, will be attending his idol’s only concert in mainland China.
3) He feels a special connection with China, particularly the city of Shanghai! The first time in Shanghai, not only had he a fabulous suit custom made at a very well-known shop, but also went home with lots of nifty small purchases (for families & friends too).
4) Very proud of his charity work, the most recent one is “We Are Family Foundation” (with mention of surpassing 31k donation).
5) He’s been busy getting ready for his Asia and East European tour (besides getting a birthday lap dance from David Arquette — okay! that’s me, maddie not the interviewer’s add-on )
6) After wrapping up his Asia & East European tour at the end of March, he will be starting the creative process of album #3; he’s got so many ideas already and can’t wait to work on it. AND…he’s hoping in 2013 he will get to do some more TV, maybe even movies. Then, he adds, “I’ll be a very happy man as long as I’m getting to create art it doesn’t matter which form of art”!
PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
The Inauguration: Eric Mettner Was There “Mettner saw that Congressman George Miller was giving a handful of inauguration tickets to constituents. So, Mettner wrote to the office, telling them his life story. On Dec. 14, he was walking out of a Adam Lambert concert in San Francisco when he checked his cell phone and saw the message from Miller’s office, telling him he had two tickets. “I just starting crying,” Mettner said. “I had gone from having no hope in 2009 to going to the inauguration in 2013.””
Forbes – Top-Earning American Idols 2012 “For a handful of artists, a higher position on next year’s list is all but guaranteed. Adam Lambert toured his way to $6 million in earnings in 2011 and this year falls to No. 7 with $1.5 million after taking time off to record Trespassing.””
My Fox Chicago – Adam Lambert in talks to judge `Idol` next season: Zwecker “When the feuding between Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey was intense, we heard a rumor about season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert–who’s already carved out a big career–being considered for a judging slot next season. Now, good “American Idol” sources are saying it again.”
