Adam Lambert erases the borders – MONTREAL – When we met Thursday morning, Adam Lambert was in remarkably good spirits. The flamboyant, glammy pop star, who was the runner-up in the 2009 edition of American Idol, is on a promotional tour talking up his sophomore album, Trespassing. And he says he’s really digging the reaction he’s been getting in Canada. Canada has “a different mindset,” said Lambert, sitting on the balcony of a swanky suite at the W Hotel. “You’re more open. Music audiences here might not get turned off by a couple of things that audiences in the States get caught up in. Like sexuality. Like alternative representation of masculinities. That’s a tougher sell in America.” – Read more at Montreal Gazette

    a few thoughts on the headlines today:

    Good for Kris getting continued media coverage.  Can’t say he’s not getting out there and letting people know he has an album available! 

    Does Carrie EVER go casual?  I mean she’s beautiful but just once I’d like to see her without all the hair and make up and in a more natural state.

    not surprised that Adam’s favorite board game is one that requires intelligence and thought.   I’ve never seen the show 1 girl 5 gays but any time I can see Adam on television works for me so I say get him on there pronto.

    LOL Randi, I think that is casual for Carrie.  She most likely wakes up picture perfect.

    Is it me, or has J-Hud been engaged for several years? 

    I didn’t even know there was 2 different Access Hollywood shows. I was all ready to watch the show that airs at night, to try and catch Kris.

    Chess sounds so nerdy.

    Carrie is like J-Lo. When she was dating Ben Affleck, she wore designer sweats (you know those pretty velore ones) to baseball games. His wife (Jennifer Garner) wears jeans and t-shirts.

    To paraphrase an old Hollywood star: Joan Crawford, who ALWAYS dressed to the nines and never left the house without all the trappings of what she felt was “her duty” as a “star”…her thought:  give them what they want.

    Besides….lots of country gals have been doing this for years….Naomi Judd, Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn.

    Chess sounds so nerdy.

    Chess might sound nerdy to some because it’s a game that requires intelligence to play, unlike checkers or other boardgames.  I like that Adam’s father knew the value of teaching him a game that requires critical thinking skills. 

    To paraphrase an old Hollywood star: Joan Crawford, who ALWAYS dressed to the nines and never left the house without all the trappings of what she felt was “her duty” as a “star”…her thought:  give them what they want.

    yes, but we now know how fake Joan Crawford was.  While she was busy presenting the picture of perfection to the public she was abusing her children and basically batshit insane.

    Carrie’s outfit looks casual to me.  Or as casual as she can be, since it’s not like she’s out running errands or at the mall.  She’s working, and is fully aware that pictures from this rehearsal will pop up in various media outlets.

    Here are last night’s ratings from tvbythenumbers.

    FOX was the top-rated network last night with adults 18-49, but NBC led with total viewers

    On NBC, America’s Got Talent earned a 3.2 rating, up four-tenths from last week’s 2.8 adults 18-49 rating.

    CBS and The CW were all repeats.

    Yeah here I was having a largh about Carrie dressing up in her 80s Flashdance-inspired finest. Thus endeth my deep thoughts about how she’s looking in the rehearsal pictures.

    Speaking of Carrie, her fan club party’s going on right now at the Opry in Nashville (she’s also playing the Opry tonight). Carrie played an acoustic set of the following songs:

    Do You Think About Me
    Nobody Ever Told You
    Temporary Home
    Good Girl
    Two Black Cadillacs
    Wine After Whiskey (1st time ever in public)
    Good In Goodbye (1st time ever in public)
    One Way Ticket
    Jesus Take The Wheel
    Blown Away
    Before He Cheats

    Carrie’s now doing a Q&A with CMT’s Evan Farmer at the fan club party. Topics so far have included cows and The Walking Dead. Evan Farmer’s confirmed she’ll be announcing her new single at the FC party. Carrie also blogged to tease that she’ll be showing a special preview of something at the party. Odds are it’s a preview of the Blown Away video and that’ll confirm that it’s the 2nd single. But, it hasn’t happened yet.

    Oh, and now she’s filming the audience singing Happy Birthday to her hubby (I don’t think he’s there because he’s at a Tim McGraw charity event this morning).

    EDIT: Yep, they’re getting a sneak peek at the Blown Away video.

    who wears “hooker/stripper” shoes with shorts and calls that casual? LOL

    I just remember the carrie from the farm and guess I appreciate people who can be a little more laid back and not so “on” 24/7.

    Good Tuesday Everyone,

    Queens Diamond Jubilee has been a blast here in the UK on this great Bank Holiday:-)

    Yesterday’s concert was epic! The Original Amazing Grace Jones was  my favorite Spellbinding performance. How do you sing in pitch and hula Hoop at the same time-Singing “Slave to the Rhythm”? and at 64! WOW! Only cuckoo Grace can do that;can’t think of anyone else:-)not even GaGa. (she has not been very kind about GaGa-oh dear!. But it’s a laugh for me:-) I dont take things too seriously

    Not surprise that Adam’s favorite game is chess. Thanks papa Lambert:-) Great choice and yes a brain stimulator. He will go down a treat in Russia where chess competition is crazy:-) Its a cultural thing.

     I am pleased Adam’s NCOE video is moving up the chart. He deserves it:-)

    Regards

    B-Babie
    xx

    Carrie usually test runs the shoes she’ll be wearing for her actual performance during rehearsals. And, Carrie has the reputation of being somebody who rehearses hard. Just recently Bill Werde of Billboard and others tweeted how they were surprised and impressed by how she rehearsed Blown Away 6 times at full blast at the Billboard Music Awards. And, it sure paid off :) Whitney Pastorek and Mandi Bierly of Entertainment Weekly have reported similar things when they’ve attended CMA rehearsals.

    I didn’t even know she tested her shoes out, but that was my first guess.  If I was going to perform on a shiny stage in front of millions of people on television, I would wear my performance shoes during rehearsal, especially if the performance shoes have heels.  

    randi said: I just remember the carrie from the farm and guess I appreciate people who can be a little more laid back and not so “on” 24/7.

    She’s not on the farm. She’s working, so she needs to be on. High heels with jean shorts isn’t exactly stripper wear, it’s a style, but as I said above, my first thought is that on an unfamiliar stage, it’s best to test out the shoes, and the rest of the outfit is very casual.

    Kris’ face when the female anchor mistakenly said that he & Katy are having a baby was priceless. Lol, it was like, “what???? nobody told me I’m gonna be a daddy”.

    And then when they asked him about what Kelly said about Idol, his face was like, “oh no, I’m not getting dragged into this”

    if she’s testing out her performances shoes that makes sense.  We’ll see come tomorrow night what she’s wearing.  BTW, I didn’t say the outfit was “stripper” wear I said the shoes were “stripper/hooker” which just means they are extremely high. 

    I think people assume I’m talking just about the clothes when I’m actually talking about the hair extensions and full face of make up for what should, I would assume, be a laid back and casual rehearsal in the presence of the crew and other performers rehearsing.  I thought I read that the rehearsal was closed to the media so how would she have the expectation that pictures would leak?

    Except…not really because a photographer is there taking photos of the “casual” and “private” rehearsal to be sent out for “exclusives” to certain publications. So, Carrie can’t be dressed in her sweats with stringy hair.

    Hell, I do full makeup and hair everyday and I don’t work outside my home.
    Some of us just do.

    I know this is a very silly poll, but two Idols Carrie and Adam are on Billboards poll for sexiest woman and sexiest man in music.  Ten of the biggest stars in the industry are on each list.  As an Adam fan, I am always happy to see him included with the big names. I also see a gay man being included in a list like this as another sign of our society moving forward on the equality issue.

    Hollie’s Idology is up.  

    http://tvline.com/2012/06/05/idology-hollie-cavanagh-season-11-exit-interview/

    Enjoyable. She has a good attitude, that’s for sure, but in a way I feel like this interview highlights how young she really is, or shall I say inexperienced as a performer. I don’t know how to explain that exactly either. I also still don’t know what she really wants to sing in terms of her future career. She admits that she mostly would love to sing diva ballads, but she knows that isn’t selling right now so you got to do the stuff that sells. Like what? Generic pop?

    It all depends on the time allocated.  He also did a shortened version on Live with Kelly.

    She IS very sweet, but also very deer in the headlights. If it weren’t for her charmingly allusive accent, I’d say Disney. She’s be par-fect for a reboot of The Parent Trap!  I just don’t see her being signed without a clear vision of what she plans to do. She’s engaging but she isn’t, in my opinion, particularly charismatic.

    It’s not that I don’t find Hollie charismatic, but if there were ever somebody who needs some serious development as a musical artist, for me it’s her.  Most of the others who have been kicked off this season, I at least get a vision for where they see themselves as artists or fitting into the industry.  That doesn’t mean they will all necessarily get to do what they want to do and/or be successful at it, but at least I can envision what they would like to do.  I still don’t have a clue with Hollie outside of her love for the big ole diva ballad.

    I think I was also thrown by what she said about her S10 audition breakdown and how part of it was because she was new to singing and therefore had never really faced rejection before.  She’s honest about it and fully admits she wasn’t ready, but I’m just trying to imagine how many times folks like Elise & Erika have heard “no” in terms of their music careers.  Though obviously Hollie has grown a lot in the last year.

    Yep.. underneath that glam look, Adam is a nerd, if you watch his interview when he’s talking about music, he really is a nerd. His knowledge of music can go back to I don’t know which years (maybe as far as 1960).. Thanks to his DJs father. LOL
