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 Lambert Rockin’ and Rollin’ Along

Fresh back from my vacation to sunny L.A. and I have tons of Adam Lambert catching up to do!! I’m going to start by sending you over to Yahoo Music to read/see Lyndsey Parker’s two-part “Front Porch” interview with Mr. Lambert. I love this interview because Ms. Parker, rather than focus the media hype and distractions concerning Adam’s fashion/personal life, actually focuses on Adam’s MUSIC. I also love that Adam is so real and unaffected here: http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/realityrocks/310947/adam-lambert-the-front-porch-interview-pt-1/ and http://new.music.yahoo.com/blogs/realityrocks/311306/adam-lambert-the-front-porch-interview-pt-2/.

Next, an article about our boy out of the UK- fresh off the press: http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/music/article7013807.ece.

Adam’s album For Your Entertainment is headed toward GOLD (yahoo!)! Read some recent statistics about sales here (Whataya Want From Me took 1st place honors on VH1’s Top 20 this week!!): http://www.examiner.com/x-11363-TV-Examiner~y2010m2d3-American-Idol-Adam-Lambert-almost-golden-Kris-Allen-hits-milestone.

Here are some interviews from Adam’s recent Canadian trip posted on Adam-Lambert.org: http://adam-lambert.org/hilarious-canadian-videos-with-adam-lambert/.

And if you didn’t catch it, here’s Adam’s fashion break-down for ET at the Grammys: http://www.etonline.com/awards/grammys/2010/2010/02/83541/.

I’m going to add another great Adam Lambert blog to the side of this page (some people may have to scroll down to the bottom of the page to see it- sorry, don’t know how to fix that!!): http://adamlambertsite.wordpress.com/. Cool site for more Adam news, updates, etc.

Two faaabulous Adam Lambert concerts are coming up on both coasts of the US, one in New York and another in California this month. The first will be at the Highline Ballroom in NYC on February 12th. It’s the “Idols Rock My Town Contest concert (got my tickets- CANNOT WAAAIT!!). Adam will be singing along with Kris Allen and Allison Areheta. The second concert is at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio California on February 27th (may be tickets left, not sure- check out http://www.fantasyspringsresort.com/prod/index.php. Sometimes casinos release tickets several hours before a concert, so if they’re sold out right now, check back- you never know!!!)

Since I was away when Adam performed Strut on Ellen DeGeneres for her birthday, here it is (enjoy again!):

You can find the ebay page here to buy a pair of Adam’s underwear (signed by him of course):  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280456789405. Go ahead and put in a bid…Adam donated this item to Ellen to raise money for Haiti. Good luck (teehee)!!!

And finally, a bonus video of a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Whataya Want From Me:

Whew! Bye Bye for now!

Hugs,
