“American Idol’s” Joshua Ledet Gets Hug from Michelle Obama: “She Told Me I Was the Reason She Watched” – American Idol contestant Joshua Ledet got a lot of praise from the judges and celebrity mentors while he was on the show, but he just met a celebrity fan who trumps them all: first lady Michelle Obama. The encounter happened Wednesday, when Joshua was appearing live on Live! with Kelly, and Mrs. Obama just happened to be waiting backstage to tape a future episode. “She asked to see me ’cause she heard I was on the show, and then I was freaking out when she walked in,” a still-shaken Joshua told ABC News Radio minutes after the meeting. “She just embraced me and just gave me lots of hugs and told me that I was the reason she watched American Idol.” – Red more at ABC News Radio

Adam Lambert on Q – Adam Lambert is back in the spotlight once again with his second record Trespassing. This time around, he’s drawing back the glittery curtain of his rock star persona, exposing a more personal, emotional, and even socially-conscious side. – Listen to the Interview on Q radio

Adam Lambert’s Rocking Ritz Carlton Exit – The 30-year-old star has been quite the jet setter lately to talk about his second studio album “Trespassing” and it looks like he will be taking another international trip as he told his Twitter followers, “UK! Im coming to London next week! Trespassing is now avail for you to pre-order.” – See the photos at Gossip-Center

Adam Lambert: I went on American Idol because I couldn’t get signed – What lessons has the industry taught you so far? Nothing’s logical – it’s all down to chance. It’s a game. There are moments when I take everything very seriously, then others when I laugh at it. You have to be able to toggle between both perspectives. On the one hand, it’s not brain surgery; on the other I want to sing about emotionally resonant subject matter. – Read more at Metro.co.uk

Justin Guarini Brings FROM IDOL TO BROADWAY to Joe’s Pub, 6/2 – Justin Guarini’s new show “From Idol to Broadway” captures the entertainer’s journey from the days of paying his dues, to skyrocketing to fame on the inaugural season of American Idol, and right through to his first bows on Broadway. – Read more at Broadwayworld.com

Kelly Clarkson Gets Tough on Duets – After both her Duets partners, Jordan Meredith and Jason Farol, ended up in the bottom last week, Clarkson is determined to show improvement when the competition returns Thursday (8 p.m. ET) to ABC. “I’m going to be really blunt with you,” Clarkson says in a clip of the upcoming episode. “I think everybody else has way more experience. And it shows because when they’re out on stage they’re into it and they’re not nervous.” As part of her strategy, she’s switching up the song style for Jordan, who performed Clarkson’s hit “Stronger” in the premiere. – Read more at People

    that was a really nice event/special with Adam at Musique Plus yesterday.  They spent an entire hour talking about his career, experiences, his videos (and playing them), upcoming Queen gigs etc.  They showed a little congratulations on No. 1 video prepared by Roger Taylor and presented Adam with a plaque for something like having the most videos in their countdowns for the longest, or getting the most votes ever or something to that effect.  I miss shows like this, where there is an depth discussion with the artist in the US. Canada has NML, UK has ChartShow.  Since the demise of MTV’s TRL nothing has really taken its place.  Anyway, Adam looked like he really enjoyed the Musique Plus thing and it was great for the fans

    One hour about Adam Lambert ? Wow ! Magnifique !!

    Aw the NCOE singalong at Musique Plus was so cute, love watching Adam giggle realizing that basically everyone there knew the words. My fave part was near the end when he heard one of the fans totally accurately mimic that distinctive little background run he does in the song, he pointed to them and was all yaaay! Too bad the show staff was distracting him by talking and having him sign stuff while the fans sang IIHY, but it was still adorbs.

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, that was the word that popped into my mind when seeing those fans sing: cute/mignon…

    As much as I love Adam Lambert and his songs, I have to admit that I only know bits and pieces, maybe maximum 70 % of his songs like FYE, WTYWFM and Aftermath… no entire song… :-( … lemme find out the lyrics to “Naked Love”… just in case one day he shows up in Asia again…

    OMG how cute is this boy! His smile is just … heartbreaking. LOL at screaming along with the screaming fangirls on the street.  He’s still just some anonymous kid from Louisiana in his head, huh?

    He kept a poker face about the “future plans” question, so I can’t tell if there’s nothing to tell re: record deal, or if he’s simply keeping silent until an announcement is made.

    Broadway seemed to impress him. He’d be amazing in a musical, but I still want a record. At this point I’m even willing to buy straight gospel from him.

    OKMAG: Kris Allen Talks About Having a Song on Daniel Powter’s New Album & ‘American Idol’ Fan Wars (VIDEO): Part 2

    He’s so low-key when he’s not singing.  Quiet, even.  Reminds me a lot of Beyonce, in that regard.

    I’m pretty there is something in the works.  I just hope his random tweet to Diane Warren about being a brilliant songwriter was just that…a random tweet.

    It will be interesting to see the direction they take him in, musically.

    I hope they don’t do Diane Warren songs.  JUST SAY NO! 
    You know, for some reason I just don’t trust Jimmy when it comes to Joshua’s CD. 

    Thanks for interview link.  His reserved manner in interviews reminds me of Prince.  When Prince does give an interview, he comes off as quiet, shy, but on the stage he lets loose.  He’s toned down his act from his earlier days, but still its like he has an alter ego.  Josh seems to be the same way.

  • http://www.etsy.com/shop/AdorablyHooked Gwen

    That tweet was toooooo random.  I am very afraid.

  • YankeeFan08

    I also wish they would stop asking Adam about Kris and his comment to TMZ.  Maybe Kris’ management should have squashed that TMZ story.  How many times has Adam been asked about it?  They even asked Adam today if he knew Kris was going to be dropped from his label.  What an awkward position to put Adam in.  What did they expect him to say? Of course, Adam is ever the gentleman and only says complimentary things.

    Seriously, Adam should stipulate before these interviews that he’s not going to answer any questions about Kris. Let Kris’ management answer the questions about the TMZ story and what his label plans for him.

  • http://twitter.com/buffyloverlori buffyloverlori

    Kris get’s asked about Adam all the time To. it’s sad but it’s something that both of them will probably always going to have brought up from other people when they interview them. I don’t like all the hate Kris still gets from winning Idol against Adam but that season is a hot spot for reporters, even if not everything is fair. I love both Adam and Kris but I wish also that people would just let season 8 go and just treat them like they weren’t on the same season but they were so their always going to have that connection between one another just part of the business.

    Daniel Powter’s new album “Turn On The Lights” is due out August 14, 2012

  • dabney c

    Doesn’t Jimmy work with Mary J Blige? She’s doing ok. I think Jimmy really, really likes Josh. He also knows that Josh’s throwback vibe is both a plus and a minus, with the trick being to find the perfect balance between a current and old-school sound. Kind of like what Haley is trying to do with “Listen Up”. It’s pretty “in” to bring back the 60′s now, so he might be hitting the market at just the right moment. Hope Jimmy doesn’t wait a whole year like with Haley, though. Christmas is perfect, despite the possible Idol-album-saturation factor.

  • Anonymous

    I think the opposite of what Kris’ management want is to squash the rumours of the TMZ thing.  It’s free promo and the most attention Kris has got in a while in the ‘tabloidy’ media.

    It just annoys me because as an Adam fan from after Idol I have no interest in kris and what Adam thinks about Kris or whatever.  Plus I’m sure Kris’ management is enjoying the free ‘lovely words’ that Adam is capable of putting out in these kind of things. Kris should be doing his own promo as he is doing and that’s it.

  • too-cool-for-school

    Kris is asked about Adam in nearly every interview, also.  People are always asking if they will work together in the future or what he thinks of Adam’s album and so on.

    I would love if interviewers would let it go and stop asking both of them about the other, as to focus on their individual music but it just isn’t going to happen. I’ve come to accept that fact.

  • mmb

    Really great that Trespassing and songs from Trespassing are being listed on so many “best of year so far” and “songs of summer” lists etc.

  • http://twitter.com/buffyloverlori buffyloverlori

    I agree with you but am afraid it comes with the terrority. Adam shouldn’t have to put up with that but he can’t be rude about it or it could turn the reporters or radio personal against him. Which could really hurt his chances of getting played on their stations. I would just say I don’t no the answer to that question but I would hope not. Or something along that line. I didn’t listen to the interview so am not sure how Adam answered the question but I know Adam likes Kris and seems to really think his a good singer so am sure he handled it like a Pro that he is.

  • Anonymous

    Those photos are amazing, especially the one with the white sweater.  Just the little bit of skin that he is showing looks incredibly hot.

  • Anonymous

    So let’s see- Kris has been asked in almost every interview since winning Idol about Adam, and now that a few interviewers are asking Adam about Kris in his interviews some Adam fans are annoyed. Okay then….
    Personally as long as the interviewers do it in a nice way I don’t mind the questions, although after 3 years you would think the press would have moved on. Of course since many fans haven’t moved on from Season 8 I guess it’s to be expected.

  • too-cool-for-school

  • Anonymous

     Well I don’t watch Kris’ interviews so I wouldn’t know.  I’m sure it annoys some Kris’ fans too if it happens so often as you say.

    It just struck me as funny that now that Kris has the album out, this TMZ thing happened and Adam keeps mentioning his ‘great album’ in media were Kris isn’t even doing promo like Canada and the UK. I’m a conspiracy theorist, what can I say?  I remember people here saying Adam got thrown in the drunk tank in December for publicity, so I’m not exactly the only one.

  • http://twitter.com/buffyloverlori buffyloverlori

    Yea I agree. They really need to be trying and getting Kris put into magazines and Adds and stuff his super sexy and takes such awesome pictures.

  • Anonymous

    The TMZ story is not good promo.  It would be fine if they left it at the lie about his comment in reference to AI, especially since they put the video with his real statement on the website, but the line about him losing his contract is the thing that will have mileage, and that could eventually hurt him.  Not that 19 cares, since they’ve played a greater role in fanning the fan wars, and hurting Kris’ career than TMZ ever could.

  • too-cool-for-school

    I love them both too! I’m happy for him! It’s really awesome that she is a fan. Maybe he will get an invite to the White House, then he can meet the president also! :)

  • too-cool-for-school

    Sometimes the questions are good, other times it just seems like filler for the interview. *shrug* Maybe it would be better if their albums hadn’t dropped in the same month, ha-ha.

  • http://twitter.com/whiskey401 Whiskey

    I think you right. Kris’ management could have squash this by now. Unfortunately two UK press reported the story and I think Adam will probably be asked once he steps foot in the UK. Adam is class act and doesn’t get baited with these interviewers about Idol contestants or their fans. That OK article was bad timing for Kris because his response to Idol fan wars just sounds more bitter. At least to me it did. Oh well.

    Yeah, they’re friends who say that they text and keep up with each other, they have albums coming out at the same time, and they like each other’s music. I think it makes a lot of sense that there’s continued media interest in their friendship. Like you say, as long as the questions aren’t an attack on the other artist, they don’t bother me at all.

  • http://twitter.com/buffyloverlori buffyloverlori

     They are not friends.  That’s just funny to me.  When they asked him on the Virgin Canada interview right now, Adam said we tweet sometimes.  That’s not a friendship.

    They’re colleagues and Adam likes him, I’m sure.  But there’s no interest in their friendship whatsoever.  The interest is in Kris’ doing so badly that there’s a perception he’s getting kicked off his label and trying to get Adam to say something bad about it.  Which he won’t because Adam is extremely good with words.

  • http://twitter.com/butterflydm Diana

    I haven’t really seen any evidence that Kris and Adam have dropped each other as friends, but we all have our own interpretation of their words and actions, I suppose.

    Naw that’s not Adam’s style, forbidding particular questions LOL. He’s always been pretty much an open book. And as awkward as it was for that DJ to basically parrot that false TMZ article to him to get a reaction, both the label dropping bullshit and the misquoted Idol comment, Adam handled it as sweetly as he always does. He praised Kris’s album and gently contradicted the DJ on what he thought Kris probably was talking about. I’d actually forgotten about it by the time the interview was over.

    Adam managed the firestorm of the AMA’s without ever trying to dictate questions, there’s no way he’d do it just to avoid a few questions about Kris.

  • Anonymous

    Of course they ask folks from Idol, questions about Idol or their season. Adam and/or Kris both need more radio play for their singles.  None of the rest of this stuff matters in the slightest (except to some diehard fans I guess)

    I think it’s natural that they are asked about each other.  Idol was only 3 years ago and they just released their 2nd albums within a week of each other.

    All I can say for Kris is he’s lucky Adam’s response isn’t “well that’s just Kris being Kris” or something equally non-committal when asked about unflattering comments Kris has made.

    Kris gets asked about Adam all the time as well. It’s a two-way street. Until they stop releasing music at the same time and/or they are so far removed from Idol that people no longer care (hah, good luck with that), both guys are likely going to continue to get asked the occasional question about the other. It is what it is. It’s not like that is the primary focus of the interviews.

  • Axxxel

    I agree with what you say except the first sentence. I think if you have been roommates for almost 3 months, having given each other advice about music and inspired each other and annoyed each other with daily irritating habits…. maybe Adam and Kris may ended up more than just distant acquaintances.

    And even if you feel that they might be not friends, at least there is this feeling of complicity between them because they have been together in this Idol machine since top 36 until top 2…and they feel a certain fondness when they look back at that period.

    Are you saying that Kris and his management worked up a plan to have TMZ distribute a story that makes Kris look bitter, and that implies that he is about to lose his contract?  I wouldn’t put it past 19 to hurt one client to help another, since I think they’ve done that in the past, but this story doesn’t help anyone.  In fact, part of it has the potential to hurt Kris.  People aren’t going to check out the album if they believe that it is so bad that he’s about to lose his contract.

    19 also can’t stop outlets from reporting on the story, all they can do is have Kris tweet out a response, which he did, and address it in subsequent interviews, which he did as well. In fact, it’s a subject that he shouldn’t address again after this week, so that it will die.

  • Axxxel

    I still remember reading an interview (not in USA though) during  Adam Lambert Glamnation tour. He has been asked  to comment about Christine Aguillera’s slow sales of her album a while ago… 
    This is after Adam Lambert has said numerous times in previous interviews with other media that he would love to duet with her. 

     So I guess reporters just want to create sensational news and stir up the emotions and afterwards misquote (sometimes on purpose) so that the gossipmachine will keep on rolling and keep them working.

    I doubt it bothers Adam to be asked about Kris.  Adam is extremely generous in his praise of other artists and he’s very supportive of his friends.  THe praise he’s given to Kris’ album has been down right effusive especially when compared to what Kris has said about Adam’s album.

    I think the difference is Adam is so articulate that he honestly could praise dog crap and make it sound appealing.  (not that Kris’ album is dog crap just an example) whereas Kris can barely articulate his thoughts on his own album much less anyone else.

    Good Lambert interviews here – like the Q Radio interviewer – believe they had a talk about two years ago.

    And the Virgin Radio one – so much fun – don’t think I’ve ever seen Adam so relaxed.  Guy’s never boring – that’s a real talent – lol.

    Wow, Incipit, I’ve never seen that picture before! I’ve always heard there was a crazy big crowd for that show but couldn’t picture what that many people would really look like.

    I guess now I can. Go Davids! :D

    Someone here earlier this week or last week mentioned there needs to be a part 2 of that show staged in 2014. That’s an idea that I can definitely get behind. Where’s my passport? haha

    I loved Adam having Kris’s back in that interview where they asked about the TMZ thing. That was nice.

    THEN, I get to the interview of Kris where that “reporter” instigated the 3 year old fan wars. She says something like, “I feel like (the haters on twitter) they are people that after 3 years haven’t moved on…..” Why is this hack of a reporter bringing it up? It’s only going to make Adam’s hard core fans upset with Kris.  I guess hits for her interview was more important than not giving those people that hate on him for winning Idol more reason to hate on him.

    Those are great photos. I’m both appreciative of and amused by the one where he’s wearing the white shirt with the collar strategically tugged down.

    Another great interview. Adam talks Idol stigma and responding to Idol being the root of all evil in today’s music, making the leap from the show to the business.

    Adam Lambert says things would’ve been much tougher without American Idol

    Do you think you could’ve done what you’ve done without American Idol?

    “I think the machine exists behind the show and it’s a well-oiled machine. Simon Fuller created a great brand. He did a good job trying to create an audience for music. For a young contestant who doesn’t have much
    experience, they can use the machine to their advantage. But then there are those of us who’re on the show and know what we want. I think when they met me and I got to the end of the show, they were excited. They thought – ‘OK this guy has ideas. He has a vision.’ I think they liked that. I think it’s case by case.

    How great for Josh.  He is really a nice guy. He was the best technical singer in the competition and deserved to be in the Final 2. I would have loved to see a Phillip/Josh match up.
