Adam Lambert – VH1 Do Something Awards – PHOTOS

Adam Lambert attended the VH1 Do Something Awards Sunday night. After walking the red carpet, he and actress Rose McGowan presented the Do Something Style Award to Tyra Banks.

Adam was also nominated for the Do Something Music Artist Award, which, of course went to teen singing sensation, Justin Bieber.

Demi Lovato performed her powerful single, “Skyscraper” at the awards, prompting Adam to tweet her a sweet  compliment,  “@ddlovato sang her face off tonight. Damn girl!”

Glee star, Jane Lynch hosted the awards, set to air on VH1 Thursday August 18 at 9 pm.

See photos below, with Rose McGowan and Tyra Banks, on the red carpet and inside the awards ceremony

    Definitely a riskier look than last night, but I love the whole anime space commander feel of it. Not sold completely on the necklace, but I’m holding off on getting judgey to see if the whole ensemble works together on TV cameras when the show airs, since he probably geared toward that and not close up photos.

    Here’s a couple gossip sites coverage.

    Love the necklace ! Adam should star in one of those Vampire movies…. and the necklace should carry some of his magical teeth… :-)

  • Axxxel

    I am jealous of Emily Gregorio !

    Never boring Lambert, never boring. Keep being weird :)

    Love the zippers with the medges and zippers on the jacket.

  • MadieGuillen36

    Im sorry but Bieber didn’t deserve that award! Adam did twice as more as that Kidd! Guess its just a polarity contest and people don’t pay attention to the stuff that matters!

  • sr4mjc

    This photo cracked me up, you can spot Adam and Sauli’s hair a mile away.

    And Sauli looked pretty awesome in silver pants

  • theonlygirl

    Adam, honey! Way too many clothes. And the gloves need to die in a fire. I love the weird eye make up, but not the eyebrows. And way too much black for a summer event.

    I think the award going to Justin is all good. He’s done a lot for charity from what I read on VH1 anyways.

    Sauli looks really hot actually.

    Full tweet from emilygee:

    Adam Lambert is awesome!

    I had the pleasure of working with Adam this weekend at the Do Something Awards. He was really genuine and so was his mom and boyfriend. I had a great time getting to know them! HE IS SOO TALL IN PERSON! I totally was not expecting him to be so tall!

    a real class act

  • lovingadam

    Love the new look (not to much the necklace).
    Yes, he´s never boring!!!

    Another red carpet appearance that has people talking about Adam’s choice of clothes and make-up ;). I love that Adam always changes his look and takes risks, even if it’s not everyone’s cup of tea.

    Looking forward to watching the event when it airs on Thursday.

    More coverage : “Adam Lambert gets spiky …”

  • tls62

    I hope we get more pics of Sauli. Those tight silver pants with his silver hair just leave you wanting more…..

    I love that Adam and Sauli both wear whatever the fuck they want to and style their hair however they want, with no apparent cares to what others think, or what the fashion “rules” are. Good for them. :)

  • lovingadam

    yes tls62, hope we get a full body pic of Sauli in those pants =)

  • emmuzka

    His troll hair, boots-aided stance and strongly penciled eyebrows make him look like an anime character. A thirty year old anime character, but still :D

  • tls62

    Ha. Just noticed Gene Simmons was on the blue carpet as well last night. Why does just knowing that he was sitting in the audience watching Adam present last night bring a little evil smile to my face? Lol.

  • mmb

    Not my favorite Adam look, but at least it’s interesting! Looking forward to watching the show later this week

  • Studio57

    Wow, did not realize his gauges were that big. Does anyone know what size they are? They look to be a 4 or 6. My son has 6 and that looks about the same.

    I hope Adam changes his look for the coming album. Getting sick of the all black over accessorizing and hair, but whatever makes him happy I guess- it’s the singing I like better anyway :)

    Actually Bieber does a lot of work with children’s hospitals, visiting sick and dying kids. He’s very charitable with his time and he’s as deserving as Adam.

    Adam needs to step away from the eyebrow pencil or at least blend better.

    It’s mid-august and he looks like he’s ready for a blizzard LOL. His obsessive need to over-dress makes me laugh. Also, I hate the gloves. HATE! Once in a while, with the right outfit they look cool, but not with every single thing he wears and not with a jacket and button-up shirt.

    Wow, did not realize his gauges were that big. Does anyone know what size they are? They look to be a 4 or 6. My son has 6 and that looks about the same.

    Adam’s gauges aren’t that big. If you look, it’s only the part that’s open in the middle, the rest is just the outter shell. I think they are the same size he’s always had since idol.

  • Studio57

    If you can see through the gauges like that, they are big. Not big, big, but bigger than I thought. It’s actually the average size but I thought his were more like an 8 or 10.

  • girlygirl

    Actually Justin Bieber supports several charities and has helped raise a ton of money. So to say he isn’t deserving of this award is incorrect.

    Interesting outfit for Adam. Love that he is constantly changing his look up and is never boring. I hope he had a great time…he looks happy!

  • cwm

    Thanks for all of the pics MJ, and soverymel, sr4mjc, and lovingadam for the other treats. Adam’s hair continues to amaze me. That is some awesome spikiness going on there. And I have always liked the blue/green highlights in his hair.

    I preferred his look at the Equality Awards on Saturday night, but this look is certainly eye-catching, bold, and interesting. I like how the silver zippers on his boots and jacket, the silver necklace, gauges, and rings, and the gray gloves all pull together in contrast to the black. And the extra line of eyeliner in the creases of his eyes gives a mysterious, exotic look. I admit that in the close-up stills, the eyebrows are a bit too heavy for my taste, but they work much better from a distance or in the video.

    I love how he is constantly switching things up and keeping it interesting for us. :-)

  • theonlygirl

    Adam has said in a Twitter party that his gauges are zeros and will stay like that.

    Got curious about the gauges so I found this discussion thread on AO according to which Adam said in the Out interview they were #2 and to a fan last summer that they were #4…

  • limi

    I personally love his look. I love the eye makeup, agree not so much the eyebrows, but on camera at a distance they look great. He always dresses for the occasion, this is VH1. I love the necklace. I am excited he got the recognition for his charitable acts. I’m sure he’ll come up with something grand for his next birthday. Hey love’m or leave’m the gloves are Adam!! One of the most important things is that everyone who meets him always says what a nice and gracious person he is. He really is a class act-just with green highlights!! I wish his next album would hurry up and appear!!

    Side Note: Girlygirl- any news on Kris Allen’s album other than he’s working on it? Release date or season even?

    That’s true, but I can’t help wondering if it’s Bieber or Bieber’s handlers who are at the bottom of his charitable efforts. Those things do look good on his resume. There’s no question in my mind where Adam’s actions are coming from. However, the results are still the same no matter what the motivation.

    Well depending on the timing of those announcements, he could be trying to shrink them- 0′s are HUGE. I would be suprised if he could get them from a 0 to a 4 but it has been done. You just slowly start wearing smaller ones. Some people have surgery. Like I said- he looks like he is between a 4 and 6 now ( size order is actually reversed- 0 is the biggest, 10 the smallest)

  • lovingadam
  • theonlygirl

    Well the Twitter party was like 2 months ago because he talks about Sauli and the new album, so maybe like May when he was in New York and bored. So that’s the most recent one and he said zeros. I went to check it.

    Although he might just be confused about the numbers, I don’t know.

    Man, I’d wish he’d be less secretive and let us know something about the new album. I need a single date, or a title or something so bad. We don’t even know if he has done the album photoshoot yet. I’m getting anxiety.

  • lovingadam
  • cwm

    As I said on the Headlines thread last night, I was hoping that Adam would pull an upset victory over Beiber and Gaga, but I knew that it was a long shot, given the size and level of commitment of their fanbases in an online popularity vote.

    But since the Do Something Awards are about recognizing people who are doing good things and making a difference in the world, the big deal is to be nominated. And for that, I say Good for you, Adam, and good for the rest of the nominees as well. :-)

    Adam’s gauges went from a 2 to a 0 — during a Twitter party he said that he won’t be making them any bigger; he didn’t say anything about trying to shrink them right now. According to this chart, a 0 is 8mm, or about 1/3 inch (which doesn’t seem huge to me — I’ve seen guys with much bigger gauges):

    http://www.eargauges.net/info/ear-gauge-sizes.html

    I read another article that 0 gauges are the largest you can go without requiring surgery to close them up. So that might be the reason why Adam is sticking with 0 — if he changes his mind about the gauges in the future, they can close up much more easily.

    Thanks for the best-dressed lists, lovingadam. Always fun to see Adam getting kudos for his style on those best-dressed lists! And he definitely brought the style last night.

    I liked what VH1 had to say under Adam’s picture:

    Glambert can do no wrong in our book. His sense of style is entirely his own, and we wouldn’t want to see him dressed any other way than this.

    I love it that they love him!

  • http://www.comcast.net KAT80

    Adam looks great as usual; he knows how to dress for each event he attends. I too think that it is an honor just for him to be recognized for his charitable work. He is so humble because he gives a lot of kudos to his fans for making the charitable contributions successful. As soon as he came off AI and saw that he had such an influence, he used it to give back and has been doing it ever since. I respect him so much for his generosity, for having a big heart and for being grateful. He is a special person.

  • GreyArea

    I love his eye makeup!! It’s different and the fact that he doesn’t play it safe makes me love it even more! The necklace is stunning and it pulls the whole outfit together!

  • JazzRocks

    I prefer his Equality Award look with less prominent eyebrows. His natural eyebrows are beautiful & he doesn’t need much enhancement. But he’s always fascinating and I love most of his “looks”. Gorgeous guy.

    Because it’s an Idol presenting at a television awards show? Just like there have been posts on all the other idols who do the same.
