People Magazine

Adam Lambert appeared as mentor on American Idol Tuesday, April 13 and man, did he knock it out of the park! Honest, constructive, unfiltered, magnificently Elvis-ified, Lambert told ’em like it was, and gave the current Idol contestants the verbal spankin’ they all so deserved. Virtually every news outlet praised Adam for his on-spot critiques and advice.

The media response to Adam’s appearance on American Idol last night has been massive! So get comfortable, GlamFans. Sit back, relax, grab a cuppa whatever, and enjoy the #GlamericanIdol news wave as it washes over us!!!

Hilarious commentary from MTV’s Michelle Collins at Best Week Ever: http://www.bestweekever.tv/2010-04-13/american-idol-liveblog-of-mics-and-mentor/. More hijinks from MTV’s Jim Cantiello (this one had me laughing so hard at the park other moms were looking at me like I was insane!): http://newsroom.mtv.com/2010/04/14/american-idol-recap-adam-lambert/

From the always lovely Lyndsey Parker of Yahoo Music: http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/realityrocks/338406/american-idol-top-9-elvis-has-most-definitely-left-the-building/. Here’s one that made me chuckle (and proud) from Zoiksonline: http://www.zoiksonline.com/2010/04/adam-lambert-is-back-on-american-idol.html

Adam responds to remarks made by AI producer Ken Warwick at  http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/04/14/adam-lambert-american-idol-ken-warwick/. Here’s another one from EW (also kinda funny): http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/04/14/american-idol-adam-lambert-ryan-seacrest/.

People Magazine had this to say about the evening: http://tvwatch.people.com/2010/04/14/emidolem-big-mike-is-back/. LOVE this quickie from Time: http://tunedin.blogs.time.com/2010/04/13/american-idol-the-final-nine-part-ii/

The Los Angeles Times’ Idol Tracker got the scoop directly from the Glam-horses mouth. Adam reveals his concert tour will start in June- wheee!! http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/americanidoltracker/2010/04/adam-lambert-on-his-idol-return-mentoring-the-top-9-and-elvis.html. And from the grande dame of Adam lovers over at the LA Times, Ann Powers: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/americanidoltracker/2010/04/ann-powers-adam-lambert-and-elvis-give-the-idols-a-little-kick.html.

From fellow bloggers over at Adam Lambert Official unofficial: http://adam-lambert.org/american-idols-best-mentor-ever-adam-lambert/.

There is more, much more out there. But most of it is repetitive and not very original, so I’ll spare you, GlamFans. If you find anything else that I’ve missed worth printing, let me know. And don’t forget to tune into American Idol tonight on Fox to see Adam perform a song (or two??)!

Hugs!!

Adam, Adam and More Adam!!

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!

Cool Reviews

Posted in Adam Lambert with tags , , , , on November 19, 2009 by Claudia

Some excitingly great reviews of Adam Lambert’s new album For Your Entertainment came my way within the past couple of days!

Ann Powers of the Los Angeles Times writes: “The first single and title track from Adam Lambert’s soon-to-be-dropped debut album couldn’t be more of an announcement. “For Your Entertainment” strides into the room, snaps its fingers and declares 2010 the year of Our Gorgeously Airbrushed Overlord.”

Read the rest of her review here at http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/music_blog/2009/10/snap-judgement-adam-lambert-for-your-entertainment.html.

From the Associated Press: “Review- Finally a True Idol Emerges in Lambert” at http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory?id=9128571!!

From the Houston Chronicle, “Adam Lambert Provides Fun, Fierce Entertainment” at http://blogs.chron.com/peep/2009/11/adam_lambert_provides_fun_fier_1.html!!!

And finally, not a review, but very funny…Is Adam ticklish?? An adorable article from MTV’s Jim Cantiello (love him- includes VIDEO of Adam): http://newsroom.mtv.com/2009/11/19/adam-lambert-ticklish/
