    Love this interview! He makes it all look so easy! It’s really hard to keep up with him these days. And, he looked incredibly gorgeous last night at the Blonde’s FW show. WOW!!

  • http://twitter.com/svmreiter Susan Reiter

    Hmmm.  I didn’t get to see the VH1 but just heard he had a big announcement – which is the NewNextNow I see.  A Bruno duet rumor is going around and I thought maybe that was this announcement. Guess we’re still waitig on that one to be confirmed or denied.  Yeah for Adam on VH1 and those blondes pics truly were gorgeous!

    Is this interviewer the one who weirded James Durbin out by touching him?  She seems familiar.

    So cool about the NewNextNow gig.  I watched their show last year and it was very, very fun.

    Do you know what channel NewNextNow comes on?  I have a feeling I didn’t get to see it on TV last year. 

  • http://twitter.com/svmreiter Susan Reiter

    Adam tweeted a rumor control that Sam Sparro will be featured on the song Shady and there will be no other duets.  He also seems to confirm that Bruno has written a song for the album.  Hope that means it has definitely made the cut! (fingers crossed)!

    I think it is LOGO.

    Yes, it was on Logo.  I watched in online, because I don’t get anything but broadcast.  But it’s easy to find, just Google Logo TV.

    That’s a really great interview. Love the way he answers the Nicki Minaj question. He’s so nice.

    Didn’t realize that Nicki M’s outfit caused a scandal.   I just thought it was stupid, and whatever point she was trying to make failed.   As for Adam’s guest shot on the Buzz, he was his usual articulate and gorgeous self.   Can’t wait for the NNN Awards show.   It was fun last year when he was with Paula.  

  • ronnie

    I hope he sings a new song

  • Emmy

    I hope he sings a new song too ronnie, but he does btikm live soooo well I’d be fine with that.  Would prefer plugged in though, but I’m sure that’s the plan no matter what he’s singing. 

    I’m always so impressed with how Adam seems so comfortable shooting the breeze and with the way he quickly puts the other person in the convo at ease. He’s a natural nice guy, very aware and focused on others.

    he’s adorable in that interview….it’s always like watching him just sit and talk to a friend.  Never stiff or uncomfortable. 

    Excited for the Logo performance. 

    I think Adam understands what Nicki might be facing following her performance and rather than comment negatively he always seems willing to support his fellow artists.  I admire that about him.

    He is such a charmer!

    Adam didn’t tweet there would no no other duets. He said no duets had been recorded to date other than Sam Sparros feature. It does appear that the Bruno collab is simply a song written by Bruno ( which is what had been expected). Whether the hoped for vocal collab Adam mentioned is happening- who knows. But his tweet didn’t forestall that possibility

  • http://twitter.com/AdamsArmyGirl Linda Vastardis

    Well now I am very confused.  I read that the Bruno collab IS a recorded duet unless the writer jumped to conclusions (again) which is known to happen …

    So, what do you make of this:

    http://www.entertainmentwise.com/photos/69807/2/Adam-Lambert-Confirms-Bruno-Mars-Collaboration-On-New-Album-Trespassing?fb_comment_id=fbc_10150662228180867_22023772_10150662802530867#f8f1b34659a4eb

    ETA: FWIW, I just tweeted Adam asking him to clarify conflicting reports on Bruno Mars collab (written and/or recorded) … hope he clears this up for us.

  • Dakota01

    Adam cleared it up earlier:

    AdamLambert
    Rumor control: no duets have been recorded except for Sam Sparro’s feature on “Shady”. Bruno has WRITTEN a song for the album. :) #factcheck

  • http://twitter.com/AdamsArmyGirl Linda Vastardis

    I hadn’t read Adam’s latest tweets, so thanks for the update.

    Well, now I am bummed … I really wanted a duet with Bruno and Adam.  But the way he worded it, it still leaves the door open b/c he said no duets “have been recorded” …. that doesn’t mean that the Bruno collab is YET to be recorded.  Also, Adam also said he has another surprise for the album that we would be very excited about, so maybe it WILL be a duet with Bruno or someone else.

    Sorry to say this but Sam Sparro’s feature on Shady doesn’t exactly bowl me over the way a Bruno duet or some other high profile/visibility artist would.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_WIHKL34XDORTS2UZP4SWUUTG3U randi

    I think he’s very clear in saying no duets have been recorded except Sam Sparro feature on Shady.  It seems that a lot of angst could be avoided if people didn’t read into everything Adam says (or rather everything Adam “doesn’t” say).

    IMO he shouldn’t have to spell it out in minute detail to avoid the circle jerk of gossip that seems to overtake every little thing about his life. 

  • Anonymous

    I love Adam and like Bruno a lot too, but I do not think this would be the best duet because they are both male pop singers.  I would rather see Adam with a female or a rapper.  Also, because Brono is more famous right now it might make Adam look a little bit desperate to ride on his coattails.  I felt that Kris was put in a situation like this when RCA added Pat Monahan to TT.  That was just about the dumbest move RCA ever made in regards to an Idol.

  • ronnie

    I don’t know why people jumped on the Bruno duet bandwagon anyway- I never thought that was the case, it was a lot of wishful thinking from people hoping the presence of Bruno would boost a second single, but Bruno is red hot right now, I doubt he would let that happen because he has his own singles to worry about, much less propping up anyone else.

  • http://twitter.com/MyEyesBabyEyes Judy

    I’m always amazed how cool calm and collected Adam is during interviews,it seems to come as naturally as singing does for him ! There’s a definite aura about him ! 

  • Anonymous

    People didn’t jump on it. Some publication took a comment from Adam and pulled the duet rumor out of thin air. Adam fans pointed out immediately that it looked like a game of telephone.
    A few fans liked the idea because they enjoy both Bruno and Adam.
    Bruno does collabs with others on a fairly frequent basis. Maybe he just likes working with other talented artists?

  • Anonymous

    Whatever, I am still excited by the Bruno song. I can’t believe this is a demo I actually like, the chorus keeps bouncing around in my head. Adam sure sounds excited about it too so would not be surprised this is the next single although Naked Love could be a contender. Trespassing would make sense but I would sure like to hear a snippet of the recorded version.
    How come other artists get demo leaks all the time and Adam doesn’t, BTW? Dammit!

  • http://twitter.com/AdamsArmyGirl Linda Vastardis

    I don’t have any angst, just curiosity, and I did read more than one article that said it was a vocal collab … so blame the internet for getting it all wrong most of the time.

    Also, for the record, I’m not one of those people who follow everything Adam does/says 24/7; I am only interested in his music and his recording/performing career.  In this instance, because I also happen to be a fan of Bruno Mars, this potential collaboration intrigued me, and I hadn’t read Adam’s tweet before commenting here.

    Hope I’ve clarified my position because I was starting to feel just a little put out by a judgmental tone to your post.  ;)

  • http://twitter.com/AdamsArmyGirl Linda Vastardis

    Thanks, Harlow22, for your level-headed comments.  I echo your words b/c that’s how it went down for me and it’s also what I would like to see happen.  If it does, fine; if not, fine, too, but I do have a preference for an Adam/Bruno vocal collaboration.

  • http://twitter.com/AdamsArmyGirl Linda Vastardis

    In an interview with Arjan Writes who is a well-respected music journalist, the following:

    “…
    We also spoke briefly about his much-anticipated new album “Trespassing” that will be released this spring. “It will be a ‘Mapril’ release,” he said, referring to his publicist for more specific updates about the exact timing in the future. Lambert also revealed that the album will include a collaboration with none other than soul crooner Bruno Mars. “That’s a yes! He will be on the record,” he confirmed.”

    #####

    Depending on how anyone choose to interpret the above, it could certainly sound like they are singing together since Bruno is referred to as a ‘soul crooner’ and Adam responds “That’s a Yes! He will be on the record.”  To me, that sounds more like someone ‘singing’ on the record than as a writer only.  “He will be on the record.”  Unique choice of words from Adam so I can understand how others (including myself) picked it up as a vocal duet.

    Just an Idea, but as it seems that the usual set up is a male Rapper and a Female singer, wouldn’t Niki Minaj be the best idea to switch that around?

  • http://twitter.com/svmreiter Susan Reiter

    Ahhhh, clever wording there leaves the door open doesn’t it? : )  Thanks for your interpretation.

  • http://twitter.com/svmreiter Susan Reiter

    Ohh, so Logo is the name of the network.  Thanks for that.  I think I had to watch on line as well.

  • http://twitter.com/svmreiter Susan Reiter

    I will take a new song or BTKM live on NewNextNow!  Just excited to have him perform as the ‘plugged in’ Adam again!  Not that I don’t love the acoustic but high energy Adam is fun & fab!

  • sagi

    That was a fun interview, I really enjoyed it! It is so cool to see all the promo beginning, so excited to be following it all. Much to come, I am sure :) RCA/Adam, you’re doing it right! :)

    I really do not see Adam and Bruno in a video together.  Maybe my imagination doesn’t stretch that far.

  • Anonymous

    I would love that.  I am a fan of her odd little quirky voice and it would give him some cred with the “wouldn’t be caught dead watching idol” urban leaning bunch.

    No Bruno Mars duet on album according to Adam’s latest tweet:
    @adamlambert

    Rumor control: no duets have been recorded

  • milwlovesadam

    My head is spinning from all the Adam goodies lately!

    Jeepers! I can wait for this album as long as he keeps popping up everywhere in the meantime and filling up my DVR!!

    Hope he goes for something like Cuckoo, Shady or Trespassing for this show.

    Oh wow, how did I miss this post? Aw Adam was so cute in that segment. Yay for him performing on the NewNowNext awards in April!

    Gotta say, I’m a teeny bit exhausted from this whirlwind of promo LOL. And there’s even more stuff I haven’t watched yet, my bookmarks are piling up!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MV64BS4FSISCASL4P656RXAFYQ Kayla

    Really nice fan shot vid from the WPST meet and greet and performance. 

    Gotta say, Adam doesn’t seem to share anyone’s concern about the adjustment to the album drop date LOL. He seems super excited about the Bruno song and whatever the couple last minute things they’re working on are. He also explains that when you’re doing an international launch, there’s a whole bunch of complicated logistics involved if your timing changes and they’re rearranging everything to give it the best possible debut.

    Also a really lovely rendition of BTIKM, altho the mic was recording for the radio station to post it later, it wasn’t amped so it was truly a bare acoustic performance.

    I also want Adam to sing a duet with Britney or Christina.  Cool.

    I don’t know where to put this, but I just voted for Adam Lambert to perform at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.  Yep, I sure did and you can too.

     I don’t know what the NewNowNext awards is but Yay!!! for Adam and for us.

    I might be in a minority but I’m not so excited about Bruno duet. If the song was a big hit, some would say it’s because of Bruno… although we all know so well  that Adam’s voice and singing is, if not superior, not a second to Bruno’s.

    I don’t know where to put this, but I just voted for Adam Lambert to perform at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

    I hate to disappoint you, but a vote there will do nothing for Adam in reality. That site is all about drumming up clicks from fanbases, there are ongoing voting polls for literally everything on it.
