Lambert On Leno

Posted in Adam Lambert with tags , , , on December 22, 2009 by Claudia

Adam Lambert appeared on Jay Leno December 21st- what a great interview and performance!! In the interview, Adam talked about working at Starbucks at age 16 (he liked it because he likes connecting with people, but didn’t like the way he smelled when he got home!). Adam talked a bit about his brother (just graduated college and how they are very different). They discussed Adam’s  AMA performance (Jay defended it and scolded network TV for being hypocritical- go Jay!!). Adam dispelled two rumors (that he has not yet created a line of make-up and that he fought with his father after the AMA’s). Oh, and my new favorite phrase is “safe plucking”!! Adam’s face was precious when Jay used that line!!!

After the interview Adam performed “Whataya Want From Me”, showcasing his amazing, sky-scraper voice and he really rocked it out toward the end!! Adam was so wonderfully confident and Jay was incredibly supportive!!

Hugs,

I hope the AMA controversy surrounding Adam Lambert will soon be behind us, and I also hope his true fans continue to support Adam’s fabulous talent! ABC cancelled his Good Morning America appearance (boo). However, Adam is now set to appear on the CBS Morning Show (yay!). Here’s a direct link to the Early Show for more information: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/11/24/earlyshow/leisure/celebspot/main5762324.shtml?tag=contentBody;cbsCarousel. So tune into CBS tomorrow morning, November 25th to see our boy!

Adam was on Alexa Chung’s show on MTV this afternoon. He talked about his AMA experience and they showed a clip of his FYE video- looks AWESOME!!!!! More on this to come…

Here’s a fantastic interview from Elvis Duran and the  Z100 Morning show with Mr. Lambert. Adam talks about his AMA performance, his AI experiences and takes some phone calls from fans: http://z100.elvisduran.com/pages/ondemand/interviews.html.

Adam In NYC

Wow, talk about creating a stir! Adam Lambert gave a provocative, over the top performance at the American Music Awards Sunday night and that man walked into a bee’s nest!! For the good or the bad, whether you liked it or not, Adam has people talking. Here are some links from some of the bigger news and entertainment outlets who weigh in on the issue:

Adam Busts Out The Show

Posted in Adam Lambert with tags , on November 23, 2009 by Claudia

OK, so the Ustream Red Carpet pre show prior to the American Music Awards was tough to get through!! Our Adam Lambert didn’t appear until the end, but looked oh so elegant in his dark suit and tie!!! Interviewed by Jai Rodriguez, he thanked his fans graciously, and was adorable as ever! Here’s the interview on YouTube:

During the AMA’s the camera caught him a couple of times in the audience…

-First, watching Shakira with an absolutely fierce look on his face…Adam obviously enjoyed her performance (hope a pic surfaces somewhere of this moment- absolutely precious)!!                                                                                               

-Clapping for Kelly Clarkson with a big smile on his face (did I see WHITE nail polish- could have been someone else’s french manicure!! Have to check that out later in the show)!!!

-The announcer says before a commercial break “And coming up, a performance by Adam Lambert you have to see to believe”!! OK, so he’s gotten me even more excited than I already was! Didn’t think that was possible!

– High-fiving one of the guys from the Black Eyed Peas doin’ the white man’s over bite, groovin’ and lookin’ so sexy during their first song, and then again, groovin’ to Boom, Boom Pow (I wish I could take some lessons to move like that!!).

-Adam smiled pretty for Carrie Underwood after her performance and he was, using her words, like a cool drink of water! 

-Adam gave Perez Hilton some makeup tips backstage (according to Perez), and once again the announcer whips us into a frenzy by telling us that Adam will be giving a performance that everyone will be talking about tomorrow! 

And finally, the performance:

Wow, I think I need a cigarette after that and I don’t even smoke!!! It was, as Adam promised, over the top! Sadomasochistic, rockin’ crazy hot, he seemed to fall at one point (caught himself beautifully I might add!).  Adam is so true to what he believes, and I totally admire that. Shock rock is back! He pushed the envelope, and afterward Adam himself admitted that this performance was not for everyone.

People are certainly talking about this performance (he trended # 1 on Twitter last night)! Tons of press about it (for the good and the bad) already. Here’s a wonderful video from Access Hollywood of Adam’s post-show interview: http://www.accesshollywood.com/_video_1178554.

Love this guy- more to come about his performance (and David Letterman- filming in NYC tonight!!) later!!

Hugs!!

Adam, Adam and More Adam!!

Posted in Adam Lambert with tags , , , on November 21, 2009 by Claudia

I had the great pleasure of seeing Kara Dioguardi (American Idol’s newest judge) at a local university last night. She talked about her career as a songwriter and sang (spectacularly, I might add) some of the songs she’s written for major artists including Christina Aguilera, Pink and Ashley Simpson, to name a few. During the Q and A portion, I asked her to tell us about working on the song Strut with Adam Lambert.

She told us that it was interesting going from “judge” to “co-writer” with Adam, and that he could finally be comfortable with her in that new setting (she described herself as a bit goofy!). She said he was really confident, knows what he wants, and that it was a pleasure to work with someone like that. She also told us that Adam has become a good friend, and that he’s a really nice and genuine person. I really enjoyed watching Kara perform!! If she happens to come to your area please make sure to catch her show- definitely worth it!!!

Now, for an Adam news update: Whiteny Pastorek of Entertainment Weekly recently interviewed Adam and asked about the whole “OUT” affair. Adam had this to say: “I’m not being puppeted around. I didn’t want to jump onto a gay magazine as my first thing, because I feel like that’s putting myself in a box and limiting myself. It was my desire to stay away from talking about certain political and civil rights issues because I’m not a politician. I’m an entertainer. That is not my area of expertise. I can talk about relationships and personal experiences because as an artist those things involve writing lyrics and that part of my process. But I didn’t feel comfortable talking about the March on Washington. I didn’t feel comfortable, so I asked my publicist to ask the interviewer to stay away from the political questions. I take full responsibility for that.” Read the rest at http://music-mix.ew.com/2009/11/19/adam-lambert-out-magazine-exclusive-response/.

Gonna make a part 2 to this post, as it seems I have written a bit too much to all fit here!!!

Mwwwah!
