Adam Lambert is set to receive the à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Young Hollywood Artist of the Yearà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  award at tonightà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s 11th annual Young Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles.

The red carpet pictures are up!

Check out the duds. And the hair.   Wowza.

UPDATE: I just added video of Adam on the red carpet talking to reporters about his upcoming interview with Rolling Stone magazine, where he will finally put questions about his sexual preference to rest.

He says, to an Entertainment Tonight reporter, “…I’m glad I’m going to have an opportunity to discuss it from my own point of view…I’ve never been private about it, I’ve chosen not to address it directly…up until now.”

Also added another vid–Adam talks about recording with Kara DioGuardi–and photos of Adam accepting his award. Plus, he says he’s doing 5 songs on tour–including some stuff we haven’t heard before…

  • Sinochick

    not sure what I think about his hair. :)

  • hwicked

    He can do nothing wrong in my book!! It seems like he has lost weight. love him love him love him!!!.. He looks a million times better in the video than the pics though.

  • GeminiDolly

    I got used to the hair. He looks so good and even better in motion.

  • http://www.myspace.com/swood1104 Sarah

    The hair, I like. The jacket, I love. The pants, I’m fine with. But the boots? Yikes. Don’t like those.

  • honowoowoo

    still gorgeous to me!

  • CindyM

    It took a few minutes for me to love the hair, but I think he looks great in the pictures. He looks like Adam, and for me that = gorgeous.

  • flynnsgirl
  • glamfan

    maybe he’s going for the new rihanna look, lol. my favorite hair on him is at his audition though.

  • Barbariba

    Are those the pants he wore for his duet with Allison?

  • hollygo9

    He looks like a wax figure a little bit.

  • TKat

    I love the hair. The first pose is not my fav picture from the red carpet.

  • clearone

    He looks like Adam, and for me that = gorgeous.

    That sums it up for me too. He’s being Adam. Hey, I’m not a fan of tonight’s look but he’ll look different tomorrow! So long as he keeps flashing that megawatt smile, all is good in the world!

  • selena

    I love everything- check out you tube of him on the red carpet-he looks stunning. And I mean stunning

  • rockvixen

    Well Adam’s got the rocker ‘tude which I love. However he should have chosen plain black jeans/pants to go with his ornate jacket. Like his hair…iffy on the boots. Very glamAdam!

    That was his Wicked haircut.

  • lizardino

    Yup, those are the “Slow Ride” pants. Woof.

    BTW, I was about to put up a link for the photos at JustJared. Those people are fast! Oh, and they have a picture of just the pants…heh.

  • AC

    Umm.. I don’t really like that look he’s giving when he’s trying to pose for the camera. He looks kinda old or something? He looks so much better in that one picture when he just has a natural smile.

  • canadiandcfan

    i love his smile!
    he looks fantastic, i’m not 100% sure about the hair yet, but he looks great!
    yay!

  • RubySlippers

    Slow Ride pants.
    Take it easyyyyyyyyy
    on my poor heart.

    Adam looks great. I love the hair. I like it when his hair is pulled back so we can see those gorgeous eyes of his. I can’t wait to see the picture of him with his award!!!

  • JenG

    Adam confirms the Rolling Stone article on the red carpet:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTSoz5LJxZI

    He looks so ridiculous. I love him.

    From twitter:

    Adam Lambert; ” I was living in a studio apartment 6 months, just hoping to get into Teddys…now I can!”

  • lizardino

    Woof = “fans myself” (hot!).

    If you look at a lot of red carpet type photos, you will notice that a lot of celebrities tend to look wooden or waxy. If you look at the first video of him posing for the gazillion photographers, you can see why that would happen. It’s hard to pose well AND look natural for any length of time ( reminds me of all those family photos where you have to pose for “just one more” — yuk). I think he does pretty well posing, and I loved his little “whoop” in the middle!

  • rockvixen

    What is Teddys? dare I ask lol

  • SparklesATL

    Upon closer examination, the haircut looks like it could be a Mohawk with fuzzy sides. Look at the closeup pic with his face turned a little to the side. You can see the sides are clipped but there is some longer hair down the back of his head.

  • GeminiDolly

  • Susan M.

    This shot right there is stunning on stunning. His eyes, his smile, his hair, his joy; he is so freakin’ beyond the beyond. He is rockin’ it on every level. It’s like he was put together in a laboratory with the objective: How to make the perfect STAR.

  • Victoria

    I think he looks great. He definately stands out, in a good way. I’m not too crazy about the boots, though. There’s nothing wrong with them, but for some reason they don’t seem to work with this outfit IMO. But other than that, he looks fabulous as usual!

    Adam still getting the PIMP spot..WOOT WOOT!!

    :lol_tb:

  • selena

    He can still do the emo hair- just tonight is a different look. I love him-

    LOL! Just like the season of AI. Kris kicks off the show (NA) and Adam closes it.

    Both our boys (Kris and Adam) had a great day! I’m sure they must talk to each other every day and compare stories.

  • listen

    In that one photo MJ has posted (2nd row, first photo), he looks really young. And that smile !!

    Agree with all the peeps saying Adam looks even better in the videos.

  • Suzanne

    He looks like a wax figure a little bit.

    YES! And not a little bit.

    You know–this is good for me. The Adam look is a freaky look to me. But now I know that someone who wants to look like this, may just be a nice guy like Adam. Adam is widening my horizons. (Still kind of a freaky look to me though. . . am I becoming Randy Travis?)

  • http://www.last.fm/user/chachithegreat chachi

    Congratulations to Adam!

    However, I must discuss the lower half of his outfit. The pants make me want to punch kittens. The boots make me want to punch puppies. There is something Bai Ling about them, only with more fabric. Also, This outfit makes me want to read gofugyourself, which never fails to bring me joy.

    The new hair, though? I LOVE IT. It’s fabulous. It makes up for the pants in my eyes.

  • RubySlippers
  • Suzanne

    My only issue is that the jacket seems a tad small.

    And the pants too–esp. from that picture at the top of the thread. Now I finally understand why they call the ensemble a “package.”

  • dyg

    I love his look, and what I love about him is that he is always changing. No way to get bored with him :-)

  • Duke

    How in the heck does Adam do from hair styles to hair styles like that?! its nuts. one minute its long, next minute its buzzed. And that outfit is rockstar.

  • selena

    I should be in bed by now but…no. I have to see Adam and brother is he looking better than ever. Thank God his eyeliner is back- I loved every inch of him tonight..ooh, I just thought of Whole Lotta Love- great I’m up for another hour.

    His look is soo not freaky to me. I mean, I thought Taco. I hope that’s not a bad sign because the last time I mentioned Taco and a runner up, it didn’t go so well. *ducks and runs* Seriously, though, he changes it up and keeps people talking. He’s no dummy. Let’s see… how many hair fiasco’s did Kellie Pickler have? Yep, she keeps people talking, too.

  • Susan M.

    Watching the Tony’s with Constantine. “Rock of Ages” should be right out of my high school yearbook, but I’m sorry, it looks CHEESY. And I’m all about musical theater. From what I hear, it’s a great show, but this looked OTT and then some. (And I like OTT, Adam gets a free freakin’ pass as far as I’m concerned.) It’s too bad because I was really hoping for something huge with a prior Idol.

    Even though he has tons of makeup on, i think his face cleared up a lot since the audition. The AI makeup artist must have hooked him up with some great acne stuff. He looks much younger too. Great look.

    He looks like a fucking rock star!

    Don’t know about the boots, but…Adam still looks great

  • gangreen29

    Sorry to break up this lovefest, but Adam looks like a big old pile of fug, definitely warrants a gofugyourself. Just way too much, way too artificial, I think unfortunately he has Carrie Underwood syndrome, another artist I love, where he pushes over the line of good taste and results in a costume. Not that I care as long as he sings well lol!

  • elephant1212

    someone also said adam got the most applause on the red carpet!! yes!! and that the host before introducting him and before kara spoke said he was robbed lol

  • carolinacharms

    wow!! oh, and to gangreen29, do you mean that carrie looks like a young dolly parton, haha? i don’t think adam is anything like carrie. he knows who he is and no one’s telling him what to wear or what to say.

    While looking at the photos from Getty Image, they are showing people in the make-up chair and getting their hair done. This look has to be what the hair people decided on.

  • SparklesATL

    There’s a “video 12″ up now and it is by far the best of the bunch.

    He is rocking the wide Mohawk.

    ETA: 5 song set on tour, some songs not seen on Idol

  • lilbrusc102

    aw, the “Slow Ride” pants…personally, I love them, for obvious reasons. :wink1_tb:

    In all seriousness, I like the outfit (minus the boots…)and the hair….he looks fab, as usual!!! He looks especially beautiful in the videos.

    Thanks for the video link GeminiDolly.

  • gangreen29

    carolinacharms, I think yeah Carrie sometimes dresses like a “modern dolly”, which sometimes works, and lots of times doesn’t lol. I think if his hair is shorter on the sides that is more tolerable haha, it just looks in pctures like a bad Rihanna. Not that it takes away from Adam at all, Id rather he be a hot mess than boring

  • shadow-rider

    Lookin good Adam. Whoooooo!!!! He is just so yummalicious!

    What I want to know is will that interview be on ET tomorrow? I sure hope so cuz I want to see it.

    Those videos need to be longer. Not enough of Adam. LOL

  • alxsavage

    This man knows how to stand out for sure, it’s pretty safe to say that we can expect a lot of bold polarizing fashion looks from him like this one in the future.

    Personally, I think he has the looks to pull off any kind of wardrobe.

  • RubySlippers
  • adamisthemanfan

    He looks like a fucking Barbie doll! So cute! Hope to see more videos…and yes those are the pants from the slowride duet w/ Allison…totally beetlejuice but much more glam…love it. Does anyone know when the Rolling Stone issue will be published? He better be on the cover and I really hope there is at least one good poster and that it will focus on something OTHER than his sexuality like, say idk his talent or his voice maybe?
    Here’s to a very bright future for him…..and allison lol.

  • jpfan

    “someone also said adam got the most applause on the red carpet!!”

    You mean Rumer Willis, Jaime Cloud and the other YH awardees didn’t bring the house down? :) Agree with the Carrie comment. I think I’ve even seen her w/the same hairdo as Adam.(What happened to the designer clothes they were supposed to wear tonight?)

  • LaurelG

    I thought he looked absolutely gorgeous tonight. He was rockin’ the hair, the guyliner and the Slow Ride pants. He looked slim, rested and incredibly happy.

    And the Pimp Spot! Hell, yes. These people are no fools. They know, just as AI did, you always end with the BEST.

    Hey linsav, “I’m SparklesATL and I’m a twit.”

  • elephant1212

    also in another interview, cant find it now, but adam said he wasnt mad at kara, that they are friends now, and she was just telling the truth…:)

  • LisaE

    Personally, I think Adam always looks a little goofy in his poses. (I say that with love!) Which is funny, because he’s so natural in real life. I love the videos and hearing him talk. He’s fun, interesting and articulate.

    I probably would have preferred jeans and his slo ride boots here! But I think the hair will look pretty similar to what it has been when he wears it down.

    btw. I’m really looking forward to the Rolling Stone article. He’s says he’s going to be talking about A LOT of things people have been wondering about. That makes me wonder…how many things are people wondering about?

    Tour rehearsals start tomorrow… :D

    Unless you are Megan Joy and then they’re “Awk! Awk’s”

    I really wish Adam & the others on the tour would tweet. The drunken tweets are today what drunken phone calls were yesterday. Hee! That would be fun.

    Anoop tweets a lot, so maybe we’ll get a few fun tweets about the road trip. He tweeted not long ago that he’s back in LA for rehearsals this week.

    Interesting that Adam said he’ll have a 5-song set. I wonder if it will e a little mini-concert or spread out throughout the whole AI concert. I wonder if he and Kris are going to have the same numer of songs?

    Questions! I have tooo many questions about this tour!

    undercooked you are correct. Sorry, in my Adam addled moments I forget that some people may not know who Roger is. Roger was present for Daughtry as well as Kelly and I think for a while Clay when they appeared at functions.

    Cute Twitter quoting Adam at at the YHAs:

    Adam Lambert; ” I was living in a studio apartment 6 months, just hoping to get into Teddys…now I can!” (via @BonnieFuller)

    My guess is that he can get on the guest list any night now!

    Adam looks so hot! I’m digging the new hairstyle! I’m just so happy for Adam. This is going to be a very memorable night for him. This is his first award afterall. I’m so proud of to be one of the few who have witnessed his every move (I know, i have no life) and this is going to be just one of the first of many thousands more awards to come!

    I’m excited for his future!

    Damn that boy has style! I totally love the entire look – so rocker/glam. He spoke very articulately as usual, and worked the red carpet like the pro he is. Can’t wait to see the video of him getting the award :)

  • steve

    Anoop tweets a lot, so maybe weà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ll get a few fun tweets about the road trip. He tweeted not long ago that heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s back in LA for rehearsals this week.

    Anoop just put a video up from la on his face book.In a radio interview last week he said he is doing 3 songs.2 from AI and 1 new 1.

    This Adam and Kara pic is adorable. But a pic of Adam and CHUCK BASS would be even more adorable, just saying!

    That’s so cute. BTW, finally caught up on GG. A little underwhelmed by the finale. But, whatev.

  • canuck

    Pants too small, jacket too small and don’t like the hair.

    Adam looks like he is trying too hard with his appearance. He doesn’t need to do that.

    Still wondering how he will cope without his hair stylist when he is on tour. Maybe he can train Allison to touch up his roots and vice versa?

  • suebrody

    I have stayed up WAY past my bedtime ;). first on Twitter about the Tonys (sorry Constantine, not so much, then chatting about Hair’s Tony–kudos to the cast, who are also Adam’s friends) and then on b/c of who else? I am not digging the hair, but he looks FINE (love the weight loss, the sparkly black, SKINNY tie). He also looks very relaxed and composed, which is great (back off, paparazzi and TMZ), and it sounds like he was as gracious as always. He said his five song set will include new material; now I’m more curious than ever. It’s nice to finally get some NEW Adam news! God, I can’t wait for the tour…is it August in Boston yet?!

    BTW, a lot of us tweeted about that tool Courtney Hazlett at msnbc.com, who called Adam a diva due to “undisclosed sources” (probably Claymates but not confirmed). WELL…the Worsters at VFTW decided this was worthy of a new thread (slow news days, VFTW?), which means that some Glambert nation fans, including myself, are now on the homepage Adam thread. And I even got the pimp slot. Woot woot!

    I agree he doesn’t NEED to try hard with his appearance. What I love is that he WANTS to and ALOT of his fans love him for that. Adam is always Adam and he makes great choices in my opinion. I’d rather see someone make an effort to impress and take a risk than show up in a flannel shirt/t-shirt and jeans for everything. That may work for some people, but it doesn’t for Adam. So, all-in-all, I’m really pleased with his appearance tonight.

    Yeah, I saw that. Idol fans who deluge journalists with hate mail usually gain a negative reputation for themselves AND the Idol they’re trying to protect. See: Claymates.

    (probably Claymates but not confirmed).

    NOT Claymates. It took me 10 minutes of research to figure out that rumor was BOGUS. I can’t believe that some people ran with that.

  • al2009atw

    Adam is not trying hard with his appearance. That’s him! He toned it down during Idol. His friends were saying how conservative he looked on Idol and they were not used to that. Anyway, I love his look. He is handsome being who he is and he looked so happy. That alone is priceless to us fans.

  • CindyM

    LOL..I think they’re Beetlejuice pants myself and he fills them quite nicely :wub_tb:

  • Violator

  • canuck

    Good on Adam for dressing to the occasion.

    Man though is he high maintenance or what? He shouldn’t show that he has to work at his appearance, makes him seem insecure in who he is.

    That’s what I mean by trying too hard.

  • mahrikka

    Okay, I know I’m a fantard and all that, but WTH with those pictures of him with his award? In the real world those shots should have taken a brilliant, extremely high-paid photographer all day to get. Those are incredible photos – cover-worthy, and that ain’t easy.

    Insecure?? I think we’ve had this discussion in the other thread already, but I don’t think there’s anything insecure about the way Adam dresses or colors his hair or wears the makeup he wears. He is who he is and he’s not afraid to show it. I think insecure would result in him dressing to fade into the background, not wanting to be noticed. In my opinion, Adam is the least insecure person about who he is than any celebrity I’ve seen in quite a while. He never fails to express himself both artistically and in how he presents himself to the world. You see insecurity, I see someone who revels in who he is and what he enjoys in fashion and art. I see someone who loves entertaining his fans and rewarding them by making an effort to surprise us and show us who he is.

    I need sleep to completely digest this video…Ha!!!!

    I complained about people commenting on his hair, and I want to comment on his hair…… arggghhhh… Okay, breaking down… I like the “imo” style except during his performance of “Tracks of My Tears”. He looked beautiful then.

    Okay… me — hypocrite. He is just too fascinating not to comment on everything about him. Sigh….

    Here’s a little article from someone who must have been part of the gaggle of reporters Adam was talking to in the last video posted (the one with the girl in the cast at the end). It confirms what I heard on the video. Interesting stuff!

    I dunno. I think mocking Hollywood celebrities is kind of fun. It’s supposed to be entertainment. I think it would be sad if we started to think we actually know these people based on their Hollywood celebrity sound bytes. It’s kind of like thinking we know George Jetson or Barney Rubble.

    Lambert is workin’ a schtick. I think it’s an entertaining, fun schtick, but mocking any Hollywood celebrity schtick is fair game. I don’t think Lambert would disagree.

    Fashion Notes: Adam Lambert Lives Up To The Glambert Name At The 11th Annual Young Hollywood Awards
    http://neonlimelight.com/2009/06/07/fashion-notes-adam-lambert-lives-up-to-the-glambert-name-at-the-11th-annual-young-hollywood-awards/

    While American Idol winner Kris Allen was in Los Angeles performing the National Anthem at the NBA Finals, runner-up Adam Lambert was in Santa Monica walking the red carpet at the 11th Annual Young Hollywood Awards.
    Rocking a stylish black jacket, gray and black striped pants and a slicked back hair do, Adam showed the men how to be fashion forward and glammed it up like no other. He looked like an Elvis mini me and we loved it!

  • houstonrufus

    Interesting outfit. I think this is going to be a very curious relationship, that between Adam and the public. I can’t really think of anyone out there right now like him, under the age of 30 that is. However you feel about him, he definitely stops traffic.

  • houstonrufus

    ewan, interesting blog. I’ve come to view those sorts of things with a little more cynicism. Now that I’ve actually been through the experience of being an uber fan of an idol, some of that stuff makes me weary. I’m not at all doubting the respect Adam and Kris have for one another–that is very apparent. But some of the over interpretation of their behavior and the colorful language can get kind of ridiculous. I’ve seen this kind of stuff before. As lovely as all those sentiments are, I haven’t seen those words actually come out of either of their mouths. So those effusive readings of their behavior creep me out in the end.

    Having said that, both Adam and Kris are lovely chaps. And their respect for one another is admirable and instructive.

    If you are referring to the way Kris feels about Adam and vice-a-versa, Kris has said on camera that he loves Adam and in at least one article that he adores Adam and could go on and on how great Adam is. Adam has made similar remarks about Kris.

    Um, can *I* mock? :P But seriously, dittoing, although I do point out it is not about being over-invested. I am ludicrously over-invested in Adam and own it freely; that does not *automatically* mean suddenly losing 100 IQ points, basic social skills, or one’s sanity.

    Adam just so obviously does not need defending; he’s practically getting more exposure than anyone in the history of this show ever, and the nutbar fans are going to hurt him a lot more than any gossip stories could. Just in a small way, I can’t count the number of articles that I’ve been utterly turned off from commenting on because the first five comments are from the same three or four people who copypaste the same verbatim (and lame) comments on everything that pops up on their Google Alert. Please to stop being on my Idol’s side! *facepalm*

    I am a little confused – I am wondering why does everyone keep linking Allison to Adam – Is he responsible for her career or something or is there something I am not understanding – thought he referred to her as a little sister – something seems little weird – can someone clarify please? I mean there are other females in the AI group, why does he have to keep her in our lives and why does she have to be trained to fix his hair while on tour – and he should hook her up with a good vocal coach – things like that – hmmmm!….. and is he really gay – I am totally confused – she is a kid isn’t she – the poor guy has to now keep up with this fame and try to make it for himself – seems like people want to burden him with other people’s responsibilities while he has to now figure out how to deal with his own…..maybe I am not understanding something.

    I love Adam’s look! I think it’s totally him! I love his hair combed back. That way I can see his gorgeous face. The only thing I don’t love is his eye makeup. He really is so handsome and his eyes are beautiful. He doesn’t need that guyliner. But I like everything else. The tight pants and jacket are Adam all the way. I also like how he is rocking it on the red carpet. It’s like he was born to walk it. He is so comfortable in public. It must be a pleasure for his publicist to just sit back and let Adam field the questions with grace, poise and self-assurance.

    I believe I did hear him say in one of the video clips that people will be surprised when they hear what he will be performing on the tour. I am thrilled that he has a five song set. He so deserves it. So maybe he has something new up his sleeve. That would be so like him. Always exciting, being original and creative.

    Thanks to mj for posting these videos.

    Kris’ mother herself became a good friend to Adam’s mom, and in a radio interview, she said that she believed both families would be “friends for life” – so in this case – the relationship is very true and real (and even extends to the families).

    The best part of the above article is this(omg, can’t wait!!!!):

    I liked that “kradam” piece that people have posted above. It has a really nice message.

    As much as I like Adam (and Kris), I don’t like when Adam poses “with an attitude” for photos. His performances may have “attitude”, but I don’t think he does as a person. That said, he does look pretty fabulous in most of those photos.

  • LakesideUK

    Thanks for all the Adam goodies, MJ!

    God, who’d be a celeb, eh? Those photographers would drive me bonkers: Adam! Over here! Look to your left! Adam! Smile! Cross your eyes! Stand on your head! :wacko_tb: Glad he seems to enjoy it!

    Stylewise, that probably wasn’t my favourite look for him but he sure makes an entrance :laugh_tb: And a couple of the head shots I’ve seen where he’s smiling/laughing are quite beautiful.

    Nice to hear he has 5 songs on tour and that some will be new to us. Much as I like Adam-The-Celeb it’s Adam-The-Singer that really floats my boat and I can’t wait for the focus to be on music again even if it’s just the covers he’ll be singing on the cheesetastic AI tour. I imagine the 5 is inclusive of duet/s – hope he’s doing “Slow Ride” with Allison as that was one of my favourite moments all season.

    Now if we can just get a record deal announcement and some more ideas of who he’ll be working with on his album I can relax and stop obsessing about him. Possibly. Ha! :rolleyes_tb:

  • anna in vegas

    “I was living in a studio apartment 6 months (ago?), just hoping to get into Teddy’s…now I can!”

    It’s surreal what has happened with Adam in less than half a year. He must be in somewhat of a daze with all this “glam” around/about him. Congrats Adam on your first beautiful trophy of what will be many. He should probably consider a very large mantle in his new home he is planning.

  • Sunn

    Gosh I’m late. Thankfully you guys have said it all, and left me with nothing constructive to add except to say.. is there any chance of a video of the acceptance speech?? Someone please say yes.

  • Lexus

    Congratulations Adam. Three weeks off of AI and heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s already won an award as the non-winner. Ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s only the beginning.

    Umm.. I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t really like that look heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s giving when heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s trying to pose for the camera.

    In fairness to Adam, the paps were the ones driving his poses. Theyà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢re screaming for the smile, the sneer, etc. Heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s a master at the game. Gorgeous!

    My only issue is that the jacket seems a tad small.

    And the pants tooà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’esp.

    The pants can never be too small. Never. The Lord giveth and he can taketh away. Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m always scared to complain about the pants.

    Adam looks so hot! Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m digging the new hairstyle!

    I admit Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m not a fan of the new hairstyle, but I know heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ll be changing it up again soon enough. My favorite cut was from Born to be Wild. My favorite outfit from Whole Lotta Love. Whatever though. All he ever needs to do is flash that mega-watt smile and I’m dead.

    Interesting that Adam said heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ll have a 5-song set.

    5-song set (of new material, no less), plus a duet, plus group number(s)? Squeeeing at the possibility.

    hope heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s doing à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Slow Rideà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  with Allison as that was one of my favourite moments all season.

    I’m sure I read somewhere that he’s confirmed this will happen.

  • elw

    Love this boy! He looks like a superstar already.

    This is one of the few occasions where I have said to myself: “Why do I live in New Zealand?” All of this took place in the middle of the day my time, so I had to wait to see the pix and watch the videos … then the husband had to reconnect the internet and argh ….. but yay! New Adam pix and video. Give me new Adam music now, and I will not ask for anything else ever.

  • clearone

    Just pointing out that the over-invested ones cause more harm than good.

    …and a good point it is! Ask Clay.

    Looks like Adam was a hit last night! Yay for him!

    Hearing about the RS interview worries me though. I pray it isn’t focusing on his sexuality. He is about so much more than that and I think it will be a total waste of valuable exposure in a national magazine if that’s all he talks about. Sorry Adam, but a lot of us just care about the music, not who you sleep with. Anyhow, guess we’ll know Wednesday.

  • jpfan

    He looks awfully proud holding that award. I hope he’s not buying into his own publicity this early in the game. But I’ll assume that he’s just happy to be where he is. Hopefully the publicity isn’t going to his head.

    I can never figure out if the same people are fans of previous Idols, Clay, Taylor etc. and then go on to the current ones or if they’re new people because the behavior patterns are exactly the same.

    It’s also hard to figure out how damaging they’ll be to their guy’s careeer. Some Idols do okay while others are seriously hurt by their overinvested fans. So far I’d say not off to a good start here.We’ve had votegate, boyfriend stalking and hostile e-mails to the media. Time to get back to the music. Oh wait here comes RS to keep things focused on other stuff.

    Cook and Archie had devoted fanbases last year and they seem to be doing ok. But Adam is tabloid fodder and they weren’t once the stuff about Archie’s dad died down. They were able to keep it more about the music in the end.

  • Mary102

    I had to just put in my 2 cents that I too love the fact that Adam always looks different from day to day – constantly mixing it up. So tomorrow the hair and clothes will be COMPLETELY different. Definitely keeps him from ever getting bored – which is the last thing on his mind :-)

    I for one love the look at the awards. Love his hair like that (though I also love the emo look!) He’s definitely not one of the guys to just rock the red carpet in a tux!

    And I have to second the comments about the smile – I am such a sucker for a guy with a cute smile, and his is amazing! Plus the laugh and sense of humor – it just drips off of him!

    I can’t imagine why he shouldn’t feel proud and happy when receiving such an award. If there’s ever a time to feel proud, that would be the moment.
    —————-

    As for his look last night, he looked perfect for the Hollywood moment. He is glamorous, he is flamboyant, that’s what people love about him. He’s outrageous, and the rest of us who live humdrum safe lives can live through people like him who are more colorful. He’s like Elvis or James Brown, larger than life, that’s why he was recognized last night. His look was perfect. It would have been disappointing if he had dressed down. I thought he looked exquisite.

    Those are great pictures, Adam is working that red carpet, I love it!

    Tour rehearsals start tomorrow? So they are rehearsing for a month efore the tour starts? That seems like a long rehearsal schedule.

    Song rehearsals, blocking, wardrobe, press, photo sessions, indoctrination classes…

    Hearing about the RS interview worries me though. I pray it isnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t focusing on his sexuality.

    He said “all the questions folks have been asking”.
    You might immediately think “gay”, but I thought record deal, management, producers, collaborators, genres, backup musicians, etc.

    The record.
    Have a little faith.

    As far as the hair- I think it will look Fabulous down and casual.
    And I certainly wouldn’t get too invested in any one look anyway because he is going to be changing things up constantly!

  • lucy

    I would bet that fame from Idol is more likely to go to somebody’s head when they haven’t spent years slaving away to get it. But Adam, like most everybody else who’s come out at or near the top on the show (plus numerous ones who finished lower, as well), has been working uber-hard for years with only incremental results. So I’d bet he realizes how hard it is to translate anything — including golden statues and tabloid notoriety — into any real ability to practice your art, and how easy it is to slide right back down into toiling obscurity again. I’ll be pretty surprised if it goes to his head. We’ll just have to wait and see, though, of course.

  • isisdagmar

    Rolling Stone has been very enthusiastic about Adam as an artist and singer the whole season, so I would be surprised if the interview focused solely on sexuality. And yes, if he said “all the questions” people have been wondering about, that must include some music-focused stuff.

    As for fans: I’ve seen some overzealous ones for both Kris and Adam, but most seem to just like the music these guys make, and to like them as people–I know I do. :)

  • oceana

    Every season, someone’s fans are accused of being the new claymates. But after a few months that dies down. Last year it was DC and DA’s fans, before that it was Taylor’s fans, this year it’s Adam’s fans. But it blows over and it will blow over for Adam’s fans too.

    The truth is, no other Idol fan group has equaled the claymates for being highly organized (to a detrimental extent) and aggressive about defending their guy. And I don’t think such an excessive fan situation will ever occur again. Clay, with his “I want to be a role model” and “others in the industry, their insides are rotting” put himself on a pedastol of self-righteousness, and attracted conservative fundamentalist fans, who were convinced that he was straight and who imagined conspiracies everywhere to paint Clay as gay and thus ruin him (so they thought).

    That specific set of circumstances will probably never happen again. What’s happening with Adam is not the same. It’s natural for fans to be excited when the show first ends and the singer is riding the crest of adulation and fame. It’s also natural for fans to be defensive when fans of “the other guy” (happens to be Kris this year) take constant potshots at their guy simply because of a perceived rivalry. No matter how often the top two prove that they are friends and not competing with each other, some Idol fans will insist on prolonging the competition.

    Of course there are fans who go too far and make over-the-top claims for their idol, like comparing them to Elvis and the Beatles, like saying that anyone who doesn’t “get them” is lacking in some essential way, and such fans tend to alienate and annoy others. But I think that most of Adam’s fans just want to enjoy the fun right now, and don’t deserve to be compared to claymates. (By the way, there’s a difference between saying that Adam looks like Elvis, which he kind of does, and saying that he’s going to be an icon like Elvis, or as big as Elvis, or that he’s a better singer than Elvis.)

    There’s even a rumor that claymates planted that MSNBC story about Adam being a difficult diva. I haven’t seen any proof of that, but it is the kind of thing that over-involved fans of any Idol might do. (I do think people should hold that MSNBC reporter accountable about her “unnamed sources”, because she wrote a damning and potentially damaging article that most onlookers do not think is true.)

    But in the end it comes with the territory. Idol breeds competition and leads to these silly, but painful, fan wars. I’m secretly relieved that there’s someone new to bear the brunt of it, and DC and DA will be under less pressure now from OTT fans. My heart goes out to normal fans of Adam and Kris who are not involved in the cattiness, who just want to have fun and enjoy the moment. Because it’s an exciting moment and should be enjoyed, by fans of both singers. It’s a testament to both Kris and Adam that they are able to inspire devotion in their fans. It doesn’t look like either of them are going to fade away into oblivion.

    Adam’s styling his new Glam-hawk!

  • wyked_whyspers

    Love the pics of Adam and Katherine Hardewick!!!

    Looks like he’s gunning maybe for a future role?

    That boy sure likes to kiss (or lick)! Don’t think it matters much what sex they are (as far as the kissing goes anyhow) as long as they are cool! Just an affectionate guy all around!

    Congrats on the award Adam, looking forward to following your long and healthy career!!!

  • unique28v

    So Adam is singing 5 songs on the tour, including a brand new song. I guess since they are doing “sets” they will perform in the order they were voted off.

    The pictures of Adam are amazing and he looks fantastic!!

  • isisdagmar

    Does the fact that he’s doing 5 songs mean they’re doing sets? I thought–based on scanning wikipedia–that even when they did the duet/trio format in season 6, Blake and Jordin still got quite a few solos.

  • oceana

    There were a few duets/trios perhaps in other seasons, but for several years the Idols have also done their own individual sets. I’m sure that won’t change. They always perform in the order they were voted off. Adam will perform next to last, Kris will be last. Adam says he gets five songs, I don’t know if one of them is a duet (the Allison one I presume). Kris will get at least that many. Last year I think DA had 4 and DC had 5, I could be mistaken.

  • JazzRocks

    Watching the Tonyà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s with Constantine. à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“Rock of Agesà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  should be right out of my high school yearbook, but Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m sorry, it looks CHEESY. And Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m all about musical theater. From what I hear, ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s a great show, but this looked OTT and then some.

    I saw the show and it was great fun. Just saying.

    On the subject of overzealous fans – because Adam is unique in so many ways he is open to the sort of criticism that most other Idols are not. Can you imagine the response of Kris’s fans (or any others for that matter) if the things that have been said/written about Adam were said/written about them? I’m sure they would respond in much the same way as Adam’s fans & would then be labeled overzealous. Fortunately, for the most part, they haven’t had to face that situation.

    I have written one comment about the Courtney article – one only & that was to MSNBC. I wrote it because that is my favorite news netwrok & I was appalled at the lack of integrity and the vague accusations in her piece. I’m still glad I did it. That kind of smear tatic shouldn’t go unchallenged.

    And – Yah for Adam last night! Yea for FIVE tour songs! Yah for RS!

  • abbysee

    The truth is, no other Idol fan group has equaled the claymates for being highly organized (to a detrimental extent) and aggressive about defending their guy. And I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t think such an excessive fan situation will ever occur again. Clay, with his à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“I want to be a role modelà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  and à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã…“others in the industry, their insides are rottingà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬  put himself on a pedastol of self-righteousness, and attracted conservative fundamentalist fans, who were convinced that he was straight and who imagined conspiracies everywhere to paint Clay as gay and thus ruin him (so they thought).

    Gotta say I mostly agree. I think that Clay and his mates where definitely feeding off each other. There was a bit of deception going on both ways. It’s like they knew the emperor was naked, but they were gonna keep the deception going because if he were in fact “gay” he would disappear…..I think that was his fear too. Adam isn’t afraid, and he is not proclaiming anything yet. He isn’t trying to start a revolution, vanilla, or otherwise, rainbow, perhaps….hell at least that would be a good idea….anyway, I think that the rabids will always be there….but I don’t ever think that they will be as bad a claymates because frankly Kris and Adam have said they aren’t competing they are setting the tone, so while there will always be an unhappy contingent in both Kris and Adam fanbase, for the most part alot of that stuff will die down….one of the first things Clay said when Ruben won was see you on the charts….all christian like and stuff. He also said Ruben ‘stole’ his title. He was feeding the rabids…..I don’t think Adam will ever do that.

    To the poster who asked about Allison, I don’t think any of that stuff was really debated here. Certainly he can still be a big brother to her even is he is gay, right? The other stuff is just fans hoping they will continue to be close.

    The Kradam piece was very lovely. I love the fact that both Kris and Adam are shattering some myths and perceptions about all kinds of things. Christianity, sexuality, male friendships, etc….it’s really awesome that some intelligent discourse is taking place about two really cool guys. When it’s not about the pants, lol.

  • Ellie2

    There’s a new article at People.com where Kris is talking about Adam opening up about being gay. He also says he’s met Drake and he’s a really nice guy and Kris thinks Adam and Drake are a “cool combination.” I would link it, but I’m not sure how. Do we just post the link or do we have to tag it somehow?

  • Lexus

    He looks awfully proud holding that award. I hope heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s not buying into his own publicity this early in the game.

    Awww à ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’ thatà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s kind of an unfair shot. Ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s his first award. Why shouldnà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t he feel proud receiving it? Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ve never seen anything in Adamà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s demeanor to suggest any hype is going to his head. Quite the opposite actually. Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m hoping he relishes every single moment of this. Heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s earned it – and more importantly – deserves it!

  • oceana

    I have to say that my respect and admiration for Kris grows and grows as he continues to show the kind of person he is. The same for Adam. It’s laughable now that some reporter tried to create an aversion between the two of them due to Kris being a so-called conservative southern boy, which turned out not to be true at all. I love how Kris sticks up for Adam and is proud to be his friend.

    I also love Adam and Allison together, big brother big sister. I don’t see what his being gay has to do with that. They’re just adorable together, it’s obvious how close they are. They’re both very talented and destined for greatness, I think, and they recognize that in each other. Or I’m just projecting.

  • jpfan

    Oceana, that’s an interesting post about the Clay fans. They seem to have the worst rep of all. Soul Patrol also didn’t do Taylor any favors by saying he’d sell five million albums, was another Elvis, change music yada, yada.

    It’s always good for the fans to actually hear the first album before they starting predicting OMG!111 -greatest Idol ever. Bigger than all the rest put together. Especially for Idols that don’t seem to be into the music that the audience is buying currently. You know, like Adam.

    I like Kris and it’s early days but if his PR is all about how great Adam is, he needs a new publicist. He really needs to get away from the Adam gay PR as well. I already know Kris is an open minded, nice guy. Anything else to know about him?

    I remember reading an interview with a friend that said she’s never seen Adam look the same twice. So, if you didn’t like this look, he’s guaranteed to mix it up!

    I agree with those who say over-zealous fans do more harm than good. I know a number were ticked about the piece in MSNBC (and rightly so), but there’s a huge difference between supportive fans and OTT/scary fans!

    There have been a few tweets about people writing songs for Adam and Adam sitting down for co-writes. I’m excited about the music! I think the tour will help take the spotlight off of Adam for a bit – getting out of LA will be a good thing!

  • oceana

    Clearone, you’ve made several derogatory posts about Roger, but still haven’t said what it is you don’t like about him. Come on, you have my curiosity up now. Why don’t you like him? I’ve never heard a bad word about him except from some claymates who didn’t like that he was gay and who thought that he was trying to paint Clay as gay. Is there something else about him that we should know?

    I get what you’re saying and I agree it’s so not cool, if that’s the case. But really other than Barbara Walters, is there anyone on the planet who does not know that Adam is gay? I hate to compare myself to Miss Malaprop aka Kara DioGuardi but I’m sort of just as baffled as she was. On the other hand, I don’t think it’s that Kris is making Adam’s queerness more acceptable but rather that Adam’s OTT-ness (makeup & overt sexuality) – which is TOTALLY SEPARATE IMO – does not reflect a lack of character or values; I think it’s the lack of comfort with the gender bending that has really been at the heart of some of Adam’s detractors. I think many in the media and bloggers, posters, etc. have mistakenly conflated Adam’s Queerness with his OTTness. I think the segment of the public that rejects Adam because of his being gay will never be dissuaded – in the same way it’s nearly impossible to overcome racial and religious prejudice. BUT I can see that there is likely a much bigger segment that are simply put off by Adam’s look – but with Kris giving the OK – they may be willing listen to Adam’s music with a more open mind.

  • oceana

    Oceana, thatà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s an interesting post about the Clay fans. They seem to have the worst rep of all.

    Of course not all Clay’s fans were OTT but a lot of them were, enough to tar the name forever. A lot of his fans didn’t even want to be called Claymates but got lumped in together, as tends to happen. I think Clay’s fans (and I was one once, but not to such a degree) became a cautionary tale for the way they bombarded and bullied dj’s, bought multiple (and I do mean multiple) cds, over-defended him, and accused anyone who thought he might be gay as if it was the most terrible thing that could happen.

    But there are a lot of sensible Clay fans of course.

  • SpenserJ

    MJà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬’ I donà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t get the post at 1:31 a.m. I hope you arenà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢t mocking Adam and his fans. That would be sadà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦Ãƒ ¢Ã¢â€š ¬ ¦

    MJ’s just telling it like it is. It’s the same old story every year. No good ever comes from hyper-defensiveness and e-mailing complaints. It just makes people look way too invested. It’s the reason that political advisors never let people running for office answer online criticisms. You just can’t win, and sometimes, you end up looking crazy.

    I can never figure out if the same people are fans of previous Idols, Clay, Taylor etc. and then go on to the current ones or if theyà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢re new people because the behavior patterns are exactly the same.

    At this point, the repeated pattern and nearly word for word posts would start to make you think it’s just the same people over and over again. But I’m still not sure either. I’m always amazed at how all these years later, even the slightest derogatory mention of Clay will bring his over-invested fans out of the woodwork. Those people can spam blog comments and online polls better than anyone I’ve ever seen.

    At any rate, it was nice to see Adam get some recognition. His crazy outfits are part of how he keeps me entertained. But, he needs to work on that red carpet thing a little – because I’m pretty sure in Hollywoodland, holding the lapels of your jacket while you pose is a no no. It usually takes the young starlets a while to perfect their red carpet pose. After they begin seeing themselves in pics, they learn what works and what doesn’t. I imagine it will be no different for Adam. He’s got an expressive face, so that definitely helps.

  • oceana

    But really other than Barbara Walters, is there anyone on the planet who does not know that Adam is gay?

    Really, I always assumed he was gay. I think most people did. No big deal. He seems very comfortable with his identity. I do NOT think the RS article will be all about being gay. They are cooler than that.

  • Tess

    If I had to say one thing about Adam, it would be that the man totally gets IT.

    He knows how the celebrity game is played, he knows what gets attention, he knows that being OTT or slightly controversial keeps the interest up, he knows that without fans and fan support he’ll get nowhere, he knows that you have to stand out from the crowd and he knows this is what you do publicly while staying sane and grounded in your private life.

    This might be a damn bigger rodeo for Adam but it isn’t his first rodeo. He’s been on the fringes of the “scene” for awhile and now he gets to step into the big time. I am sure that he is well aware that being in Hollywood during this transition from Idol stage to Idol tour puts him into the spotlight. He is also aware that his lifestyle and flamboyance makes him a media magnet. I am sure that he is also aware that things will die down during the tour (except for local media) and that he needs to position himself so that the “attention” will resurface once his album is released and he begins to promote it and upcoming tours.

    I thought what he did last night was bold and calculated and also fun for him. People may not neccessarily liked the look but they won’t forget that he made an impact. It’s like dressing in white when everyone else wears black. Because his hair was different it created buzz. I just think it’s kind of amusing that female celebrities totally understand this but most men just don’t understand the impact of “a look”.

    I’m really looking forward to watching Adam as time passes. The roller coaster ride is going to be a blast, and like young kids we are going to be talking about it for a long time.

    You mean all the stuff the media has been focusing on all along? Not.

    It isn’t a matter of faith, but a matter of evidence. The media coverage so far has been mostly about Adam’s sexual preference. Is he or isn’t he is the question they want answered specifically.

    I’m sure all that other stuff will get a mention in the article, but it’s not what’s going to sell the magazine or why he got the cover.

    You know I really believe that Kris says want he believes. I seem to recall that he even discussed this in his Idolatry interview.

    I think that a lot of people, even some Kris fans, seem to underestimate Kris on a regular basis. I actually think that he has done an amazing job of clearly saying what he believes and not stirring up contraversary. And, so far, Kris has shown himself to be thoughtful and intelligent.

    Regarding Adam’s “coming out” — if you look at any of the polls, the majority of American’s under 65 years now even support marriage equality. So I really think that most of the record-buying/concert-going audience don’t care if an artist is gay.

  • clearone

    …and I find that very sad and if true, it’s doing Adam a huge disservice.

    As for Roger, I just find him smarmy and don’t think he’s a very creative PR person. How many PR people are there that you know their faces because they’re always in their client’s pictures? With Roger, he shows his face too often. I think with him, it’s more about the celebrity than the work. Just don’t like him.

  • jerzytrash

    You mean all the stuff the media has been focusing on all along? Not.

    mj far be it for me to lock horns with the site owner :P but I think media is kind of an exaggeration – I’ll give you paps and gossip rags but legitimate news and entertainment outlets have mostly been focused on Adam’s look, gender bending, vocal ability, previous performances and the fact that his skill level seemed so out of place on American Idol. I think the disconnect between what Adam brought to Idol and every other previous contestant is what got him noticed and kept their attention. If he had been voted off back in the Top 7, do you really think he would have garnered nearly any of the attention that he now enjoys? I think it’s his talent and innovative performances that’s been keeping real journalists interested. If he’s getting the cover, like Lady Gaga of last week, it’s because he’s provocative not because he’s gay.

  • AA foreva

    Thanks so much for posting these great pics. When Adam smiles he is the most beautiful to me. His loving approach to everyone he meets creates such a positive energy that people are drawn to him.

  • JustWatching

    As a big fan of Adams, my comments are not about the award Adam received, but about the background in the photos where he is receiving the award. All the wrinkled material. Is that the best they could do? Looks like the kind of backgrounds we’d hang in the basement when the neighborhood kids put on shows for the parents or other kids. lol Adam, on the other hand, looked great. Not really liking his hair like that but it goes with the outfit I guess.

    Adam’s “new” look is consistent with his glam days. Just having fun with style. I think that Adam is really just doing what he has always done – pre-Idol that is. He always played around with his look even on Idol although not with a drastic cut like this glam-hawk. He has such thick hair that it’s easy to do almost any style I would imagine.

  • Mom in the Suburbs

    Congrats Adam on the media buzz. Love the pics with the award and big smile, love the smiley pic at the podium, but not so keen on the buzzed short sides of the hair. Well, his look will be different by next week! I like his hair with a little bit of length, on the sides and in the front. Slicked back or emo style, he’s gorgeous.
    With his newly svelte silhouette, these pics foreshadow modeling for high fashion or fragrance ads. Edgey and beautiful.

    Thanks for all the video’s and pics MJ. … Adam looks great .. he’s so at home doing this kind of stuff … I love his OTT glamness, I know that it’s going to be too much for some people and understand how all the media hype surrounding him can annoy people but thankfully he also has the talent to justify all the intereste in him.

    He looks and behaves like a total star in those videos. Good luck to him.

    For sure. Adam is a marketers dream come true.

    I didn’t like his clothing last night. The jacket was too small imo. He looked too shiney/slick or something. It was like I could smell his cologne by simply looking at those pictures. I liked the leather clothing and hair styles of Whole Lotta Love and Ring of Fire because it made him look edgier (sexier). In the outfit last night he looked uncomfortable (sorta like women used to look in the days of girdles and pointy bras), just all bound up somehow and unable to move naturally. Holding his lapels, not appearing to know what to do with his hands, seeming a little self conscious made me think he was a whole lotta nervous. Not his best look. Now this is just constructive criticism because anybody who has ever read a post of mine knows I’m crazy about Adam! I’m just writing this because if others felt this way, you aren’t alone, lol. I hope the RS cover is edgy/sexy Adam at his finest!

    It seems there are a lot of people who would like to believe otherwise, but the Rolling Stone cover is a BIG deal, no matter the focus of the article. It really is.

    “Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m sure all that other stuff will get a mention in the article, but ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s not whatà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s going to sell the magazine or why he got the cover.”

    RS is not just some gossip magazine that put someone on the cover because he is gay. There have been other gay AI constestants besides Clay in the past, whom looked quite open that people can tell, but they are not good enough. There are also tons of AI winners, and they too are not good enough to land on the cover, because the music industry don’t give a damn about AI like most viewers do, they view it as a cheesy reality show. Adam is the rare gem that comes out of the show, and the fact he is gay is just splendid.

    mj far be it for me to lock horns with the site owner :P but I think media is kind of an exaggeration – Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢ll give you paps and gossip rags but legitimate news and entertainment outlets have mostly been focused on Adamà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s look, gender bending, vocal ability, previous performances and the fact that his skill level seemed so out of place on American Idol. I think the disconnect between what Adam brought to Idol and every other previous contestant is what got him noticed and kept their attention.

    Yep. I agree with this assessment. Case in point: Whole Lotta Love. I’m with Simon on this, one of my favorite Adam performances ever. The look, the vocals, the energy, the supreme confidence. RS noticed, we all did.

    Also, regarding the Claymates, WORD, to your entire post, oceana. I think people are being a little too quick to label Adam fans as the new Claymates. Geez, the guy was a sweetheart all season, humble, polite, thanking everyone connected with the show, gracious in defeat and genuinely happy for his friend, Kris, and two weeks after the show ends some no-name gossip columnist from an allegedly reputable news organization comes out and labels him a “diva.” A homophobic slur based on what? Nada, no specifics, no sources, zero evidence. And because his fans rush to his defense by posting angry comments we’re all suddenly a bunch of Claymates? No, I don’t think so. As you pointed out, oceana, Adam’s situation is different from Clay’s (out and proud) and ADAM is very different from Clay. And while there may be some overlap in fans, I can’t believe the crazy Claytards who are still in deep denial over him would have jumped on the Adam love train this season. Different guys, different fanbase.

    Yes it is a big deal. I think that is why people keep talking about it. If it wasn’t a big deal no one would care.

    Sooooo true!! Soooooo true!! There is a difference between gossip/pap sites and legitimate entertainment outlets.

    I agree and I think it’s especially significant coming in the week following Lady Gaga. That is not merely coincidental. For the past 40 years or so Rolling Stone has been a significant influence shaping the direction of pop music in all it’s forms. By putting Adam on there *now*, they clearly believe he is in a position to shape a unique trajectory in music. That’s what RS does – it acknowledges new and/or unique people who they believe have or will have some influence on culture worthy of serious attention.

  • unique28v

    If heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s getting the cover, like Lady Gaga of last week, ità ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s because heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s provocative not because heà ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢s gay.

    YES!!! PREACH!!!!

  • stacyyim

    I also think some of the Kris fans who don’t like the idea that Adam will be on the cover of RS could give it a break. Even if it’s not Adam, it’s NOT going to be Kris, just forget it.

  • suebrody

    Green Day was on last month’s cover b/c their new album is receiving so much attention (i.e., they have returned returned to the rock scene with a concept album). It had nothing to do with Billie Joe Armstrong’s sexuality, believe it or not.

    He has a lot of parallels with Lady Gaga, the performance art background, the OTT sexuality, outlandish (in a good way!) appearance. Both have proved that different can be beautiful. Also, the dance club vibe in her music is somewhat similar to some of his pre-Idol music. She is one of his faves and its totally rockin’ that her RS issue is the one directly preceding his.

    Crazy fans? Fans have always been crazy, the only difference now is that we have the internet which brings a whole new dimension to crazy. BTW I would love to see Rock of Ages, hopefully while Constantine is still in the cast. Someone in this thread criticized Rock of Ages as OTT? Say what? That’s what that whole era of music was about! Broadway is a tough sell, its hard to get something on stage and with the current economy filling seats is difficult. Making it on B-way is nothing to sneeze at!

    I happened to be in Hollywood yesterday, Adam’s former home (one bedroom studio apartment!)… Hollywood is really a crummy place. I was there to see a play, but had some time to kill so walked around a bit. The people I saw talking to themselves probably never heard of blue tooth and definitely didn’t have a cell phone. Its a very poor area, gets a little better up by the Kodak theatre where it takes on a festive air with all the people dressed up in costumes to pose for pictures with the tourists. My point being, did Adam look proud, maybe that look was merely HAPPY! Thank goodness he has a wonderful chance for his music to be heard around the world and will never have to live in the low rent district again!

  • jlc

    I want to share with you this very interesting blog about Adam (and Kris):

    Beautiful–loved it.

  • jerzytrash

    revcat

    Good post! I was wondering about the area of H’wood where it was mentioned that Adam lived. I could’ve sworn I saw something that said Melrose & Wilcox – but maybe I’m mistaken. I’m familiar with West Hollywood but not so much the other side of Fairfax and I was wondering i that area, like most of NYC, had become gentrified. Not to go totally off topic but it seems to be the case with Venice & Santa Monica – no low rent area anymore in either neighborhood.

    What I think is also an interesting parallel/contrast to LG is the fact that LG is TOTALLY NYC and Adam is practically the spawn of LA (in a good way!) Both basically doing the same thing but one with the East Coast v. West Coast vibe. There’s definately a difference and I can’t wait to see it & hear it in full frontal OTT-ity. If looked at it that way Adam is the whole California Dreamin, New Agey, Mean People Suck guy while LG is very urban intellectual & arty which the crux of survival in NYC. Eh maybe I should save this for my dissertation. LOL Either way, I hope someone can make it happen that they tour together for a bit. I think LG is 1,000 x more talented and relevent than Katy Perry (who seems a bit vapid to me) and I would love to see Adam aligned with a smarter vibe.

  • revcat

    Probably “low rent” was a poor choice of words as I don’t think anywhere in LA has cheap rent. Melrose is considered kind of cool, did pass the street Wilcox so was pretty close to his former digs.

    More importantly, when will RS hit the stands? I’m going to be out of town later this month and might miss it as the place I’m going is sticksville :(

  • downeast

    as the place Ià ¢Ã¢â€š ¬Ã¢â€ž ¢m going is sticksville :(

    I hear you. Except I LIVE in sticksville, and the closest bookstore/newstand is two hours from here. Seriously.

    Anyone have any idea where I might be able to buy that issue online?

  • TylerWV

    Im an Adam fan but I dont think that look makes it off stage. Hes too good looking to need all the fussiness, imo. The pose looked a little Divaish too lol.

    Exactly.

    One day it will eventually filter through to them that the industry and media are not interested in Kris. Harsh but true and the sad thing is that his fans put him in that embarrassing position.

    I’m undecided about his hair but that would be my only criticism. The rest of the look is great. As for “divaish”, no fan of Adam would even use that word.

  • lavender1960

    Hmm all due respect that outfit looks dated like maybe Adam was raiding Bret Michael’s closet and that is one closet not to be “coming out” of…of course YMMV or should I say YMWV.

    I found this on youku. It’s kind of old so you may have seen it already. Someone may have put the link here originally for that matter. If so, I apologize cuz I don’t mean to steal anyone’s thunder, just wanted to share good Adam footage. Adam is being interviewed by Mario Lopez for Extra! Adam has some funny moments! http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XOTQwNzM5MTI=.htmlhttp://www.bestweekever.tv/2009/06/05/does-this-look-like-the-face-of-a-diva/

    Forgive me if this has been posted before but honestly I can’t keep up with what’s been posted.

    In this interview Adam confirms he’s been signed by RCA and he WILL be on the cover of Rolling Stone.

    However, I must discuss the lower half of his outfit. The pants make me want to punch kittens. The boots make me want to punch puppies. There is something Bai Ling about them, only with more fabric. Also, This outfit makes me want to read gofugyourself, which never fails to bring me joy.

    OMG, I LOVE the fug gals! I can’t remember how I found that site, but when I’m feeling irritated & bitchy and need to snap myself out of it, I go there to laugh for a bit. …Now I’m curious if they’ve got him on their site…..

    So many Adam-fans absolutely love those pants, but I have to admit I’m not really on board with them – simply because I am a firm believer that skinny-legged pants/jeams do not look good on *anyone*, particularly guys, because their calves are usually disproportionately skinny to the rest of their physique – and Adam is no exception. That jacket has a lot going on so I think he should have gone with black pants/jeans – or even white, but leave the Peter Pan skinny ones at home! JMO. lol

    Huh? How did the fans put him in that position? I also don’t agree that the media and industry aren’t interested in him. Sure he’s not as in-demand as Adam is, but that doesn’t mean there is no interest.

    I agree, RS is not some gossip magazine. It’s still respected in the industry as far as I can tell.

    It was an honor for Clay to be on the cover too, and I think it was because, at the time, he was a potentially fascinating person. The “gay” question was only one aspect of the interview. He answered some questions wierdly, i.e. he talked about killing a cat (and had PETA after him for it). And he talked about biting his toenails. (Ick.) He was always controversal and drew negative attention to himself from the start. I remember cringing when he talked about the toenails and the cat, wondering why he talked about those things. Clay’s always been controversal and still is to this day. A lot of people were curious about him after the show and he had a certain charisma, however he gradually turned into a bit of a media joke, and I don’t think it was so much his being closeted, as the negative attention he periodically drew to himself, like putting his hand on Kelly Ripa’s mouth, and recently his comments about Adam for instance. Anyway it is interesting that RS picked him for the cover, just like Adam, almost immediately when he got off the show. I think he also talked about the vanilla revolution in that article, or maybe it was a different article from that era.

    Many are underestimating Kris. Still. Can’t wait to see him prove some peeps wrong. Again. I also can’t wait for Adam and Allison to kick some butt. :-)

    WTF? Killed a cat? Any respect I had just tanked.
