ADAM OUT AND ABOUT
PRESS AND BLOG PICKS
Reality Rocks – American Idol, The Day After: Top 4 Results Dish (VIDEO). Lyndsey Parker: “So, what to do with that bonus week? Run a “Best of Adam Lambert” clip show? Air a “Where Are They Now?” special hosted by Brian Dunkleman and Kara DioGuardi? Host a PPV wrestling match between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, to raise funds to appease (probably under-served) advertisers? All of these might’ve been good ratings-boosters, but no. Instead, producers decided they will DO THE TOP FOUR SHOW ALL OVER AGAIN.” Thanks to @mmadamimadamm for transcribing on Twitlonger.
USA Today – TV tonight: ‘American Idol,’ ‘Duck Dynasty,’ ‘Arrow’ “We’re down to the Final Four and at least two of them — Candice Glover and Kree Harrison — are better singers than anyone Idol has found since Adam Lambert…”
South Florida Gay News – Adam Lambert Highlight of Miami Beach Gay Pride ““Clearly, Adam Lambert was the highlight of the week. It was truly an honor to have such an A-lister want to be a part of our Pride. We had ‘Glamberts’ staking out their front-row positions at 8 a.m. that morning,” said Executive Director of Pride Ivan Cano. “His press conference was packed with media and photographers. He was very gracious when he accepted the Key to the City of Miami Beach. He couldn’t have been nicer or more engaged with fans and our Board, our volunteers and our community leaders. He’s genuinely a nice guy.””
Socialite Life – Adam Lambert Voted Celebrity Humanitarian Of The Year! “The staff of Socialite Life revealed who were their favorite celebrity humanitarians, and in turn we asked you which of the celebrities we nominated was your favorite. After a whopping 16,000 votes, we are thrilled to announce that Adam Lambert was crowned the winner!”
MTV Buzz – Adam Lambert’s ‘Then & Now’ Photo Proves That Glam Doesn’t Age We love it when MTV’s Byron Flitsch goes all fanboy flaily over Adam! “Looking at this “Then & Now” photo of Adam Lambert totally has us narrating a glam fairy tale in our heads… something like (read in the voice of Morgan Freeman), “A long, long time ago (2002 to be exact), there lived a young boy named Adam Lambert. Unbeknownst to him, he was DESTINED to become the Prince Of Glam.” Actually, Adam probably always knew that he would one day rule the Glamberg kingdom — just look at his confident 22-year-old look! It totally screams, “I WIN AT EVERYTHING” and “Did anyone TiVo that new show “American Idol”? I want to take notes so I can DOMINATE it one day.”…”
Starcrush – ADAM LAMBERT FEATURED IN PSA FOR THE TREVOR PROJECT ‘LIVE PROUD’ CAMPAIGN [VIDEO] “Adam Lambert recently joined up with AT&T to support the Trevor Project, which focuses on crisis assistance and suicide prevention in the LGBT community. Now we have an adorable video to promote the cause. Too bad Adam Lambert never does anything for the gay community, right? OH WAIT.”
EW – Who should judge ‘American Idol’? “If by some miracle, next season’s judges are allowed to skip the weekly brainwashing sesh and voice their own opinions, I’d say my ideal panel would be Keith Urban, Pink, and Adam Lambert…”

“If I overstressed on people’s opinions, I won’t be able to have a singing career. You need to make choices all the time and develop your own style through this process. As a pop singer I certainly hope more people would like my music. But first you need to know what you want, then consider how to meet the audience’s expectation.” Read more.
