    Love. This. Man.

    LOL. So does Wendy. She can’t keep her hands offa him!

    Three TV appearances today in NY.

    Now. Adam, get your tush to LA to rehearse for Divas! And jingle, um, the jingle ball.

    ( seriously, how can anybody talk about the Jingle Ball and Adam in the same sentence without getting a case of the sillies?).

  • tucker davis

    Adam had the perfect answer when Wendy said she couldn’t remember who won AI on his season! Kudos to Adam!

  • Aavari

    What a trifecta of press today!

    I am blown away at how GOOD he is in interviews. He’s an interviewer’s dream come true. And yet, he always manages to direct the conversation towards whatever points he wants to get across. He can always give media training courses if he ever gets tired of this singing thing. 

  • Ronnie D

    The intro to the DIVAS show is hilarious! lol I can’t wait to see it!

  • askance

    I love watching Adam on telly :)

  • asifclueless

    milws … You always crack me up.

     And I love your “Four Foot Hose .. Attention Whore”
    Adam is 4foothoseattentionwhore!!!  Haha..LOL

  • YankeeFan08

    Adam was completely adorable on Wendy.  What a fun day with all these TV appearances.
    Don’t forget he will be on the VH1 Morning Buzz tomorrow AM. 

  • seashellz51

    That was all sorts of win. I cant wait for the VH1 Diva show. They picked a great person to host this year.

  • asifclueless

    Ronnie D, … Here is especially for you.  Enjoy!!!

    FULL VH1 Divas promo and a short Interview 2012

  • lovetheusa1776

     A very classy guy.

  • Chicagolaw

    He is such a fun interview. Love it!

  • Enough already!

    Loved all three of todays interviews.   Adam knows who he is and what he is about.  I was thrilled for young fan who got the hug at Wendys show.  She looked like she might faint.  lols   btw Adam’s response to Kris question was classic Adam…he’s not a fame whore like me.   priceless!

  • Axxxel

    Yes, people tend to forget that Adam Lambert and Kris Allen were roommates on American Idol.. and get along with each other very well…  So I guess Adam may have felt uncomfortable if someone jokes about ” we don’t really remember the winner of your season etc”..

  • Axxxel

    Agree, agree… he stays focused and his answers are succint… 

  • Beaugard Stevens

    Thank god the white hair is gone, he looks so much better with it dark

  • Axxxel

    Which is the third interview ? I only remember the Soledad CNN one which is this one…

  • bridgette12

    I just think sometimes these people doing the interviews actually think Adam is angry about not winning and will take the opportunity to take a cheap shot at Kris for winning. They don’t understand that he got what he wanted, which is was a chance to make a album.

    Had fun with @adamlambert on the show today. He gave GOOD talk…and he’s TALL!  #instagram

  • mouse999

    Actually Wendy is taller that Adam. No wonder he was wearing platforms.

  • lovetheusa1776

    Lambert’s 6’1″ – Williams is 5’11” seems to be the general consensus – Lambert had on his “platforms.”  Williams had on spike heels.  He was still taller.

  • mouse999

    According to Wiki, Wendy is 6’2″.
    Wikipedia, our Internet Bible..  :-)

  • loveroftalent

    I just got home and watched….OMG he is so good….He really is an interviewers dream…Love him and his witty humour and comebacks…He is so quick…It shows just how intelligent he is…Fame Whore even though he isn’t, which some think he is, but what a great answer…He knows what some people think.  I knew he couldn’t let thecomment of  four foot hose go by without saying anything….

    Everything about today has been great

  • lovetheusa1776

    And there are numerous websites/blogs that say 5’11” – so you payz ur money and you makes ur cherce.  Looking at them together – (there’s also a snapshot behind the scenes where they’re both wearing “heels”) – and he’s definitely taller.  The fact that Wendy emphasized the word TALL says a lot as well.  But, whatever – they’re both impressive in height.

  • seldomused

    Just watched both parts; Adam sure is looking handsome these days, isn’t he?

    The interview was fun, (I have never seen this show before). 

  • lovetheusa1776

     It was the expression on his face that made it so funny – he’s just a great guest.

  • Axxxel

    True, I think some fans and even non-fans may be angrier than Adam about him ending up being runner up…

  • Axxxel

    Thanks Sharon .  The funniest part I think was just BEFORE the interview.. when the 2 hosts were commenting on how good Adam looks… and the way how Adam reacted with “”ooooooooohhh”……

  • loveroftalent

    OK…I want Adam on my TV everyday!!!

  • loveroftalent

    Wendy couldn’t keep her hands off him…Can’t say I blame her..

  • asifclueless

    Another FIASCO photo shoot …very tall Adam.

  • milwlovesadam

     I pledge allegiance to George Clooney, and the Glamberts, for whom I stand, Trespassing For Your Entertainment, with Equality for which I stand, one fabulous man, under a rainbow coalition, with glitter and divas for all….

    Lulz. He’s so damn handsome, but what is this pic about?

  • Axxxel

    napoleon pose ?  ready to conquer the world despite having an ulcer because of all the inner frustrations ….

  • asifclueless

    The Four Best Men’s Haircuts.

    LOL … Adam Levin … to the photo of Adam Lambert ?!?
    And this is from!? … LOL

  • Sharon S.

    And Adam saw it!

    Adam Lambert
    @outmagazine Levine? Lol of course

  • marmom07

    Adam is such a cutie, and sweet and hot and sooo articulate!!!! Loved the CNN chat with the congressman full of diva questions. LOL

    Also the fame whore comment when they were asking about Kris.

    way more Adam on my TV!!!

    and the mix up with A. Levine? really OUT magazine. No one proofs anything these days.

  • marmom07

    I can’t help but think that this tv exposure will (may) help get him more tv opportunities. Somebody in the biz has to notice what a great job he does (which would be his management to shop all these clips around to other tv/music biz folks) Obvs has to be the right thing but he’s just such a natural….. OMG get him a singing talk show to host!

  • loveroftalent

    So unprofessional..Glad Adam got a chuckle out of it though.

  • loveroftalent

    Oh Yes…A singing talk show host would be amazing…He is such a natural in front of the camera…Makes it look so easy..

  • Mariyas

    Today made me the happiest with the 3 shows of the awesome ADAM on my big screen! Always the articulate well-spoken interviewee. 
    I just wish the audience gave some applause when Kris name was mentioned by ADAM. Not one soul acknowledge it. But I love ADAM for mentioning Kris. Always the nice, kind and humble guy you can depend on. Proud of you, ADAM!

  • Sharon S.

    I don’t know if his promo interviews will make much difference…he’s been doing awesome interviews since his “Idol” days.  But I agree if he does a great job with the Divas hosting gig, that could be a whole different thing.  He’s getting the opportunity to sing, which is a huge plus; if he can also effectively channel his personality, wit and charm as a host, he’ll impress the hell out of people.  What that would do for him remains to be seen, but it certainly couldn’t hurt.

  • weareallinnocent

    Adam gives great TV (even if I only watched on my laptop just now. lol)

    Thanks to all for the links of love… :-)

  • Axxxel

    no reaction from Adam Levine ?? :-)

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yet another great appearance by Adam. He was so sweet to that fan who seemed just overwhelmed by meeting him. Loved his response to the not-so-nice reference to Kris as well, very classy and self-deprecating.

  • marmom07

     Yeah I know. Mostly I want him to be able to do want he wants to do …. the recording artist thing… It’s possible (makes sense) that he’s getting some of his current opportunities (PLL’s, Divas etc) because of his current “body of work” ie interviews, performances etc. Also helps that Michael Orland? is working on divas (I think that’s what Adam said in one of those interviews) since he knows what Adam can do from their Idol time together.

    Fingers crossed for him on divas. doing a good/great job never hurts and especially being able to show off his singing chops on TV is a great opportunity. More so that the one off, “singing a single” on Leno or some other talk show. It doesn’t seem like late night talk show watchers buy much music.

  • MellyPer1692

    It’s Rickey Minor who’s working on the Divas show. I haven’t heard that Michael Orland is participating.

  • marmom07

    Ah that’s right, I remembered wrong.

    ETA fixed previous post

  • Sharon S.

    I’ve wondered if Rickey Minor had anything to do with Adam getting that hosting gig.  I know the peeps at VH1 like working with Adam, which was probably the major factor.  But Rickey might have put in a good word as well – at least to the extent of giving an enthusiastic recommendation if he were asked his opinion.

    It sounds as if Adam is having a blast with all the concert prep.  I can imagine him sounding as excited as a kid on Christmas as he works with Rickey and the producers to discuss ideas and pull everything together.  He has to adore being so involved.

  • bridgette12

    Adam is one of those people who love to collaborate with others to create something special. I think he thrives off of interacting with other artistic people. You can tell by how excited and enthusiastic he is about whatever endeavor he’s involved in.

  • marmom07

    All of these interviews etc are why I stay positive about Adam’s career in spite of US radio. First, Adam is so charming and genuine as a person to both the audience, his fans and to the professionals he works with behind the scenes or in front of the camera. He generates so much good will. Second, (last but not least) he delivers the goods. He is so massively talented as a live performer/vocalist. In general people want to help nice people and people want to see talented people succeed. All of these professionals behind the scenes that Adam has been impressing and and charming these last few years will (when it’s the right project) try to hire Adam or convince others to hire Adam for their projects. As long as the bean counters see that Adam’s involvement brings in viewers. Adam has a fan base. Now radio may not be interested in his fan base but he does have a decent sized hard core fan base. If he makes enough money touring and working other things then to heck with his record label (if they drop him for poor sales) he can pay for his own album etc.

  • Aavari

    I want Adam Lambert and Adam Levine to do some little youtube
    video skit about the media and public getting their names mixed up all the
    time. I think they’d both be good sports about it, and it would be hilariously
    awesome (well, at least in my mind. :-) )



  • Sharon S.

    I’m actually more afraid of Adam getting half-assed support for a third album than of him getting dropped altogether.  Album sales notwithstanding, there is still interest in Adam – hence him getting opportunities like the VH1 hosting gig and international concerts in large venues.  I have a reasonable degree of confidence that RCA recognized that “Trespassing” was a strong album.  The label might not be so eager to drop him and allow him to find a home at another label, and possibly break through and earn big money there.

    I remember when Adam was mentoring on “Majors and Minors”, he made a point of stressing the importance of networking and leaving a good impression on those with whom they would be working – that opportunities can easily come from such connections.  It’s advice that he clearly lives, day in and day out, in his own career, and I agree that it has already paid off for him and will continue to do so.

  • HermeticallySealed

     If he’s smart, he will save a portion of the money he is getting from these overseas shows and put it into an account towards his next album.  Many of the most successful artists reinvest into their own careers.

  • Tess

    Since I no longer “buy” music, neither I-tunes or CDs (just like I no longer buy videos or DVDs) because if I want to hear something I can find a hundred ways of accessing it, I no longer look at “sales” as being the only indicator of any Artist’s viability, staying power, or popularity…and I really don’t think I am the only one.  Rarely, are my favs the number one sellers, intense popularity at a particular time and place is not an indication, for me, that these sellers are the best thing to hit music…nor do I put a lot of store in the number ones on radio because I look at it as a very finite measure.  I can think of hundreds of recording artists that I have listened to or watched over the last few months and they aren’t number 1 with a bullet on either list.

    Adam, I believe, has found his niche and is doing very, very well within those parameters.  He will probably never be teeny bopper popular (the biggest source of recording revenue) nor is he or will he be mainstream and he definitely isn’t an everyman, milk toast singer who has broad appeal because people have issues with “those who rock the boat”.  

    Funny thing is…I don’t really fan any of the Idols anymore….but the ones I tend to see or hear about Adam is surely among that bunch, and you can’t say that about many former Idols these days.

  • bscfan

     Yeah, my Adam fantasy is that he establishes himself as a touring act that people consistently want to see, so that he can finance his own albums.

  • loveroftalent

    Isn’t the concesus here that if your favourite gets dropped, it’s a good thing….

  • loveroftalent

    This would be great…Would love to see them do a little rap song about it…It would be so funny..

  • loveroftalent

    Loved you post, and I agree with everything you said…

  • loveroftalent

    I believe this is what Adam has been doing all along..He has talked about this before about reinvesting what he makes into future endeavours…

  • jpfan2

    I think Adam def has a second career going as a “personality.” He can co-host talks shows, etc. The main problem  is radio and I just don’t see much potential for him on CHR.  I think Adam can make $ touring (especially overseas). He has many loyal fans even though he may not have broad popular support.

    Is RCA a good label for dance music? If not, he may be better off on a more niche label

  • YankeeFan08

    That does seem to be the consensus in the Idol bubble, but IMO it’s only a good thing if there’s another label ready to sign them immediately.  IMO having no record deal is never better than being signed to a label. 

  • loveroftalent

    Yes that’s what I always thought before that it’s better to have another label ready to sign you.  Maybe it is just the idol bubble that think that…I don’t know much how all this works…The only thing I do know is that I beleve without a doubt that Adam will succeed without the radio support…

  • Axxxel

    yeah , both artist have the same initials as well : A.L.

  • bscfan

     Yeah but if the label can’t get you played on the radio, I feel like half the reason to be on a label is gone. Although it is true, the label pays for all the production and marketing, which is very nice.
