ADAM WEIGHS IN

PressParty – Adam Lambert: ‘This whole cultural appropriation debate is so 20 years ago’ “The term is currently being bandied about in relation toKaty Perry, who has previously dressed up as a geisha, whilst her Egyptian themed ‘Dark Horse’ video was also criticised. This prompted singer Lambert into writing on Twitter about cultural appropriation, saying that in today’s world cultures are integrating more than ever.”

PRESS AND BLOG PICKS

The Advocate – Adam Lambert Is a ‘Killer Queen’ “At a recent performance of the song “Killer Queen” at Queen + Adam Lambert, a national tour of the storied rock band alongside the American Idol alumnus, Lambert reclines upon a red-velvet divan in front of a packed audience of both Queen diehards and his own younger fanbase. Sporting a spiked and tasseled leather jacket as well as his signature eyeliner, the singer takes a swig of champagne from the bottle, before spitting it back out at the cheering crowd. It’s a rock star move, and Lambert, 32, who enthralled stages in 24 North American cities this summer by channeling the band’s late frontman Freddie Mercury, has emerged as a star in his own right.”

The Backlot- Adam Lambert On Living Proud And Rocking Out “I think people’s attitudes are becoming more liberal. I think people are understanding LGBT more, and it’s becoming more visible, and that makes people more comfortable. So it’s becoming, or I hope it’s becoming, more of an afterthought. I don’t think a piece of music is actually that specific, at least most of the big pop songs that I’ve heard. They’re non-specific, everyone can relate to them, which is the whole point, that’s why they’re popular. If I’m listening to an Adele song, which is written by a woman for a man, I can relate to it also, and so can a straight woman, and a straight men, so why can’t a gay artist have that same kind of universal appeal?”

Music Times – 8 ‘Ring of Fire’ Covers Ranked: From Alan Jackson to Frank Zappa, From Blondie to Adam Lambert “…Lambert’s cover maintains the foreign essence while changing the culture completely. He adopts an oud as his backing track and performs his vocals accordingly. A cover that’s totally respectful and yet totally unique to its origins. You can tell it’s great because of these introspects from the judges who we’ve learned to distrust…” Watch again:

    Agree with Ellen. Interview of Brian May is a Must Listen. Almost a lullaby in the way it filled my heart. Excellent interviewer who lets May talk and wow does he talk–much of what he says is about Adam. And Brian sure “gets” him!
