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!

Waiting Patiently

Hello GlamFans!

There is a lot of buzz out there about Adam’s new album, including a single called “Strut” written by Adam and Kara Dioguardi and possibly a track called “Obsession.”  While he’s working on his future hits with the likes of Ryan Tedder, Dr. Luke and Claude Kelly, we’re all patiently waiting for the next phase of Adam’s career to envelop us. More on this from MTV.com at http://newsroom.mtv.com/2009/09/23/adam-lambert-album-update/.

While you’re waiting, here’s an interview just posted by Astra on 106.1 BCI on Long Island- thanks, Astra! Adam is as delicious as ever here- aaadorable!

And finally, a bit about the Burning Man Festival, where Adam performed, posed in drag, and was photographed kissing boys. Burning Man is supposedly where he got inspired to audition for American Idol. You can find that info at http://twilight-spaghetti-theatre.blogspot.com/2009/09/fwd-truth.html. And you can find a video about the festival, also taken from twilight-spaghetti blog, at http://www.time.com/time/video/player/0,32068,39616455001_1921966,00.html.

Yes, Adam, I am waiting patiently for my “Sonic Lobotomy”!!!

Hugs,

Claudia

Hi Glamfans (my homage to the Glamberts ((:- no competition here- just the best name I could come up with on my own)!

I found some new interviews on YouTube I’d like to share. I can’t take any credit for these videos. I just look for them and post them to share with you. Please support their creators!!

The first one is an interview in Cleveland this weekend done by Q104 in Cleveland at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ml3P6NjaHnA. Some new info here about the rumors about Adam recently.

The other one is from a 20/20 interview with Kara Dioguardi after the Young Hollywood Awards at  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBuXjBAbjBY.

Last, I want to give a shout out to the “Official Unofficial Adam Lambert Fan Site” at www.adam-lambert.org, home of the “Glamberts”! They work really hard at bringing lots of great information daily. They also have posted some of  Adam’s music for you to hear. I’m going to add the site to my links side of this page. Check them out if you haven’t already!

Muwah Until Next Time-
