I thought it would be fun to post some quotes made by Adam Lambert from recent articles from various sources.
“You seem so at ease with fame. What do you attribute that to?
“I think it helps that that I’ve lived in L.A. for the last eight years and I’m a little older. I’m 27, seen a lot of s—, met a lot of people. I’ve certainly been on the sidelines of paparazzi barrages, like, I’ve been out at a club with various reality show acquaintances and they get that kind of attention. So I’ve been near it, which helps me not to be thrown off by it. My M.O. is just do what you do and don’t feel like you have to make apologies for it. I’m sure there will come a point when I have to apologize for something, but not yet.””
This is from a Wall Street Journal blog posted by Michelle Kung. Read the rest at http://blogs.wsj.com/speakeasy/2009/11/12/adam-lambert-on-his-new-album-for-your-entertainment-working-with-lady-gaga-and-his-appeal-to-women/.
From Rolling Stone (so many things in this article I loved, but here’s one of my favorite quotes):
“People criticized your album cover for its theatrical camp, but you’d argue that’s actually where a lot of pop music is heading, correct?
“I think that especially right now in the pop scene, theatricality is definitely back. Look at artists like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, for example, two very kitschy, tongue in cheek artists. Even people like Rihanna, it’s very theatrical, it’s very dramatic, it’s very fashion. All that’s happening, and people like Madonna have been doing it for years, and Michael Jackson was the master of it. I just think that people want that again. I was fortunate that I got picked for Idol and people liked it, because that was the kind of music I wanted to do, add more presentation to it, a little more showmanship, not just about the voice.””

And from E Online:
“If anybody watched the show, they’ll know that we’re [Lambert and Kris Allen] like apples and oranges,” Lambert said. “That’s part of the reason we got along so well. It felt like we were comrades in this competition and this experience. And I feel like we still are.” Lambert’s CD, For Your Entertainment, is due out on Nov. 23, just days after Allen’s self-titled debut. Lambert still has to complete the video for his first single. “It’s going to be pretty sexy,” he said. “Get ready.” Just how sexy? “I’ll be dressed,” Lambert said, “but there will probably be some people that are pretty sexy—yeah!”
Double yeah. Read the rest of this at http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/marc_malkin/b153302_adam_lambert_dating_no_clubbing_yes.html.
And last (for today!), an open and honest interview with Adam from YouTube:
