Billboard – Adam Lambert: Love Letter to the LGBTQ Community “Y’all are my true inspiration. You’re life lines that have kept me grounded and thankful. All the LGBTQ musicians, dancers, drag queens, bar stars, club kids, DJ’s, designers, actors, stylists, glam squads….. YOU are my circus family. It is because of all those years traipsing round our nocturnal playgrounds that I had any sense of how and why I wanted to stay the course; to rep for my queer family!”

AMP – adam lambert, the only man i’ve ever loved “Even though LGBTQ representation in media is still not where it needs to be, Adam Lambert is one of the only men I’ve ever loved who’s fearlessly chasing equality and visibility, a reality that Freddie Mercury surely would have dreamed of.”

Billboard – Adam Lambert on Carrying on ‘A Torch’ for Queen’s Freddie Mercury “When I came on the scene, it definitely felt like a bit of an uphill battle, with a lot more middle-aged straight dudes making a lot of [industry] decisions. That’s changing. Someone like Troye [Sivan]or Sam [Smith] or Olly [Alexander] from Years & Years or Hayley Kiyoko can say, “This is who I am,” which is what I’ve been trying to do, too. I always wonder if Freddie is looking down on us, excited that the times have changed. I hope I’m carrying on his legacy in a way that would make him proud and that he would get a kick out of. And I hope he’s envious of my footwear collection.”

Sunday Herald – ‘Audiences have a connection to Queen’, says Mercury replacement Adam Lambert “A lot of that is down to just allowing the music to be in my body – after a while it becomes an instinct, very much like it is for Brian and Roger. It took me a little time to catch up, but after a couple of years on the road, you connect into a living, breathing unit. We’ve become a real team, and I’m very grateful that my ideas are heard. It didn’t have to be that way. If they had said, ‘No! You have to do it this way,’ I’d have said, ‘Yes, sirs! Whatever you say.’ But they’ve been really lovely.””

The Guardian – Adam Lambert: ‘Now there’s an audience for me being exactly who I am’ ““Roger was like: ‘I think he would be really open and upfront about it, because that’s what he was like to all of us.’ [His sexuality] was just taboo in the media. But he was very matter of fact once he’d come to terms with it. And from what I have ascertained, he was fully bisexual. He was dabbling everywhere. I think he was ahead of his time.”

There are those who would say the same of Lambert. At a recent event in LA championing gay musicians, singer Parson James said: “A lot of people bashed him for what he did, but to be honest, I think if people like him didn’t come around when the conversations were so mum, then we couldn’t have people like Troye [Sivan] or myself.” How does that make Lambert feel? “Beautiful,” he says. “That was a really nice thing to hear.” He shuffles about in his seat again. “I didn’t get into this to be a role model, but then slowly I realised it was a responsibility I wanted. There’s so much good that can come from being a leader and being open.””

GQ – Adam Lambert on gay pride, touring with Queen and his favourite tattoos “I have a tattoo of Antinous, emperor Hadrian’s lover on my ribs. It was a very public relationship, and they travelled around together until Antinous died while they were visiting Egypt. He drowned in the Nile. Hadrian was so gutted that he cried for weeks, and then he named the city where Antinous drowned after him, had the government declare him as a demigod, and created several temples around the empire dedicated to Antinous. He became the most sculpted figure in Roman art for about 200 years. To me, the story was just so romantic. They were like the early gay power couple.”

Highwire Magazine – Review & Photos: Queen + Adam Lambert at The O2, London “Touring together for over six years now, Lambert, May and Taylor work together so efficiently on stage that you’d be hard-pressed to find a show like it. It’s slick, professional, and a spectacle in its own right that had every audience member transfixed.”

Attitude – QUEEN AND ADAM LAMBERT CHANNEL THE SPIRIT OF FREDDIE MERCURY AT LONDON’S O2 ARENA – REVIEW “And gay’s the word with Lambert, who shouts his sexuality from the rooftops and wears it on his tattoo sleeves and golden cloaks, in his high heels and guyliner, in his red leather jacket and sparkly crown. Freddie never hid his gayness but he butched it up in blue jeans and white vests, whereas Adam is an androgynous peacock who struts around making cracks about how far up his ass that robot’s head is. All this would be to hollow avail if he wasn’t such an awesome singer: Lambert’s got the pipes to tear the roof off rockers like ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ and to tear into the heart of anthems like ‘The Show Must Go On’, not to mention the charisma to coax every single member of the crowd to do the ‘Radio Ga Ga’ hand claps. Singing ‘I Want It All’, he leaves you wondering what more any Queen fan could possibly want.”

Lust for Life – Queen + Adam Lambert in Ahoy “Adam Lambert may be humble when it comes to Freddie Mercury, but at the same time he also has the bravado needed to fill those unprecedented frontman shoes. That makes him – in combination with his great singing qualities – the ideal person to stand with Queen on the stage and will undoubtedly be the reason that Brian May and Roger Taylor have been with him for six years now.”

Glasgow Live – Watch as Glasgow Queen fans launch mass singalong after TRNSMT “From Brian May taking a selfie with the expansive crowd, to a poignant tribute to Freddie Mercury, TRNSMT’s Friday night was one for the history books…”

Independent – Queen with Adam Lambert, London O2 Arena, review: Wonderfully flamboyant “It’s no mean feat, finding a replacement for one of the greatest rock singers of all time, but Queen have found one of the best possible artists in the form of Adam Lambert.”

Glasgowist – SPECTACULAR SHOW AS QUEEN + ADAM LAMBERT ROCK TRNSMT IN THE SUNSHINE “‘I Want to Break Free’, ‘Radio Ga Ga’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘We Will Rock You’…just some of the EPIC tunes on offer as the sun set on a glorious Friday night in Glasgow. The TRNSMT crowd needed Somebody to Love and boy, did the band deliver. From Brian May taking a selfie with the expansive TRNSMT crowd, to a poignant tribute to Freddie Mercury from fellow frontman Adam Lambert, mass singalongs to ‘Under Pressure’ and the promise by Adam Lambert to spend a night truly celebrating the biggest rock band in the world – TRNSMT’s Friday night was one for the history books.”

The Scottish Sun – Rock royalty Queen wow TRNSMT fans as they close day four of festival with sensational show “Eccentric Lambert wowed fans with his incredible voice and slick moves on the stage. Crowds were wowed by the theatrical performance in front of 40,000 strong crowd. The band had audiences in the palm of their hand as they seduced them with jaw-dropping renditions of Queen’s biggest ballads and classic rock hits. And they pulled out all the stops with glitzy costumes to add extra drama to the performance and Adam Lambert proved himself worthy of heroic Freddy Mercury’s crown.”

Hotpress -Queen & Adam Lambert, The Boomtown Rats, and The Darkness at Marlay Park “Lambert starts the show in some sort of red leather jerkin, during ‘Girls’, he shows off platform heels that would have given Edmund Hillary vertigo. Before they go into ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, he reappears on stage in a green leather jacket and pink checkerboard pants, rising out of the stage on the head of the giant robot from the cover of News Of The World, not missing the chance to make an arse joke about it either. He rides a bicycle around the stage for, you’ve guessed it, ‘Bicycle Race’, and it’s no ordinary bike either, more a cross between Pee-Wee Herman’s two wheeler and a child’s tricycle. He strokes the microphone in a way that would make Price blush. Yes, he is certainly flamboyant enough for the job, the kind of fellow you could imagine receiving a late night call from Liberace advising him to “tone it down a bit”, but does he have the pipes? The answer is a resounding yes. Of course he’s not Freddie, but who could be? His voice does everything asked of it and more. He’s very good value indeed.”

    Adam using a unique medium…paints beside his pool area; could enlarge it as a mural, homogenous with the pool water.

    Helloo Pharaoh Diamond Dog!

    Gold, silver, nickel medallions issued by Singapore Mint to commemorate Trump-Kim Singapore Summit 12 June 2018.

    Helloo Pharaoh! You look intrigued by Daddy’s painting.

    Hi Lam-My…I like my favourite colours blue and yellow, other others are not so conducive to my eyesight.

    I had been thinking…Daddy could paint colours on your paws and let you romp on a large sheet of paper placed on the floor. In that way, you are painting too. lol!

    Yea, I’d love that but these acrylic paints may be hard to wash off and soon his bedsheets may also have my residual paw-prints. Ooooeeeh!
    My Daddy is very artistic!

    I know, Pharaoh. You are so well-behaved and just sit by and watch. Cheerio!

    I like the two gold Singapore medallions
    World Peace is what it says
    Symbolised by a Golden handshake
    What if a nuclear breakout actually happened
    Worse still by accident !
    Even if there was no real intention to start a nuclear war
    We are talking of multi-millions of innocent people
    Caught in the crossfire
    I read with horror that a whole piece of skin falls off
    When someone touches it to console another
    President Moon Jae-In is very grateful
    States in no uncertain terms
    Korea will work very closely with Singapore and Asean
    World Peace is not something transient
    Rather it has to be forever…
    The World belongs to every single one
    Not to be taken lightly or controlled by a few
    Peace be with you…

    Singapore 53rd National Day 9 Aug 2018 ended after a touching 3-hour show, a short while ago. One of the highlights…spectacular aerial free-fall parachutists filmed by a drone / Heron 1, at Marina Bay.

    The skydivers flew from nearby Sentosa island to Marina Bay for about 1 minute 10 seconds.
    Wing-suit with pockets of air and extended surface area acting like wings give them the lift as they steer/control flight with their bodies; activates parachute to land in front of The Float with 25000 spectators, a lot of people couldn’t get tickets but watched from the surrounding bay area and buildings. It is very dangerous for the Red Lions as they have to navigate the surrounding tall buildings at a speed of 200km/h.

    I’ve seen them for 29 years, started 1989 as parachutists…this is our 53rd National Day, and they actually flew!
