First live performance of “Superpower”!!



Yahoo – Adam Lambert talks new music, new boyfriend, new attitude, and 10 years of being here for your entertainment. As always, a superb interview by Lyndsey Parker. “Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody may have started the music-biopic craze, but a whole separate movie could be made about the life of Queen’s current frontman, Adam Lambert. From his early theater and club-kid days, to his unlikely ascent as an American Idol darling, to his present-day status as an LGBTQ icon and the lead singer of the biggest rock band (and biggest comeback band) on the planet, his story is one for the ages.”

The Advocate – Adam Lambert Unleashes Authentic Queer ‘Superpower’ With Velvet: Side A. “While “Feel Something” expresses yearning, “Superpower” is a declarative statement that Lambert has come out of his blue period more badass than ever. “I did some deep digging and just got down to the bottom of [Why do I care?]. I like performing. I like connecting with people. I like sharing that space, that time with people — whether it’s three minutes of a song or a two-hour concert,” Lambert says. “That is something that I cannot live without. I love it. I grew up loving it and I continue to love it.””

Billboard – Adam Lambert’s ‘Velvet: Side A’ Is the Star’s Best Work Yet.  “Velvet is the right title for a project like this — the sound is classic, the production is smooth, and the artist is basking in a rich, luxurious new sense of self-confidence. It may only be the first part of a greater project, but Velvet: Side A leaves nothing to be desired for the listener, and instead feels like a collection that could be Lambert’s most definitive work to date.”

Associated Press – Review: Adam Lambert smooth as ‘Velvet,’ rough as rock on EP. “Adam Lambert’s superpower is a seemingly 25-octave voice that can be smooth as velvet one moment, and sharp enough to cut diamonds the next. His new six-song EP, “Velvet: Side A,” shows Lambert at the top of his game, toggling effortlessly among dance club thump, guitar-driven rock, ’70s funk and power-ballad drama…One of the things that propelled Lambert through the “American Idol” ranks was a deep knowledge of and appreciation for vastly different genres of music — and the ability to kill at all of them. The first single, “Superpower,” is infused with a Prince spirit (think “Kiss”) with its falsetto vocals, and prominent bass lines.”

HuffPost – The Rise Of Adam Lambert. “Now on the cusp of releasing his new EP, Lambert hopes as many people as possible hear his music. Sure, he cares about the number of streams, album sales and chart success. But it’s about a lot more than that. “My definition of what success is: Do I feel like I’m being myself? Do I feel like this is making me happy and proud? Do I feel like I’m connecting?”

    Adam Fan / website @madamimadam posted more Singapore F1 2016 pictures to my archive; she’s Australian :
    Thank you for responding to the F1 QAL picture I posted earlier on, that caught your attention.

    @madamimadam :

    These show City Hall / Dome and Dr Brian fits the ambiance perfectly; built by the British 1926-1929 used as their HQ for political/civic matters. Also occupied by the Japanese in WW2 and after 3 years, surrendered it back to the British in 1945, end of WW2. 50,000 unarmed Chinese men paid dearly with their innocent lives, lined up, shot from the back, buried, by the Japanese. Their Civilian Memorial lies just across the Padang, their names inscribed on the walls; built by beloved Lee Kuan Yew.
    I did mention in my comments to Queen and Adam before they came for their F1 concert 2016, that they would be performing at a very historic, gazetted National Monument; Dr Brian played his beloved red guitar to 55,000 (picture above). The cutest part was Brian spoke Mandarin to the crowd…ni hao ma / how are you…maybe he was trying to get a feel of bilingualism in Singapore. 😊

    If Lee Kuan Yew had lived just one more year, he would be so touched by Queen and Adam performing on the Padang. Across the road, City Hall where he was sworn in as First Prime Minister in 1959 after securing Independence for Singapore from the British. When he passed on in 2015 at age 91, his body lay in state in Parliament House / City Hall. People queued 8 hours on all sides of the Padang to get into the building to pay their last respects.
    Above video, Adam shaking his bon bon outside City Hall…LKY once remarked that gay people are very talented.
    By the way, Bill Clinton and Dr Henry Kissinger came to pay their respects. They had worked with him many years regarding relations between US and China. Dr Kissinger in particular was highly impressed by his advice / strategies.
    My guess is Lee Kuan Yew’s favourite song would have to be… We Are The Champions followed by The Show Must Go On…because that was what he instilled in Singaporeans in order for a small country to survive.
    Lee Kuan Yew and Dr Kissinger were named by Time magazine as Strategists of the Century! Did you know LKY was awarded the Lincoln Medal by America and Highest Medal of Honour by China, and posthumously by Shinzo Abe Japan; Lee Hsien Loong received the Medal on his Father’s behalf.
    RIP Lee Kuan Yew.

    I finally found the photographer who took this picture, Queen and Adam / F1 2016… from the tall round building Swissotel The Stamford Singapore; I knew it was from an aerial vantage point, thought maybe a surveillance vehicle. It was posted by Adam.

    The tall round hotel building from where the above photo was taken, Padang 55,000 people…whoah!
