Adam Lambert Album Cover Photo Shoot

Jasen Kaplan “celebrity makeup artist” twittered all day Thursday from the location of Adam Lambert’s album cover shoot.   You’ve got the location, possibly the outfits, the accessories and some eye wear and of course, the jacket.

And the photo of Adam? A cross between Big Boy and the Michelin Man? What’s the deal? I think we’ve got a little bit of a Jimmy Neutron vibe going there as well.   Glittery Alien from Planet Fierce? Heh.

In any case, the photo is gone off of Kaplan’s twitter page.   He says, “hundreds of photos but i am not alloud to post pics of the shoot guys sorry! i love u all but i cant give away images. im make up not photog”

The cover, says Kaplan is being shot by photographer, Warwick Saint.Hm.

  1. Nah, I think the puffy thing is just a custom jacket to keep him warm and he’ll remove it once they’re doing the photo shoot…?

  2. Poor Adam! He looks so unhappy. And I’m sorry but this picture will never stop being funny.

    I can’t believe they had a 15 hour photo shoot and the guy chose to tweet this picture.

  3. I loved Adam’s fixation with his costuming during the show, and with few exceptions I think he chose outfits that suited both him and the song very well. But… that costume is extremely unfortunate. Perhaps it is designed to keep the Glamberts from continuing to throw sex toys on the stage, or to protect his arms in case they didn’t stop.

    Hopefully, there are other pics of him in other costumes, because that one is just. not. good. He doesn’t look like a Glittery Alien from the Planet Fierce. He looks like Mr. Staypuft from “Ghostbusters.”

  4. Let me guess their trying for a “Flash Gordan” theme with the Queen vocals in the back ground?
    I don’t know which but I just had an flashback to those old sifi shows..

  5. I have no worries about the photo shoot. You can tell this shot isn’t really a shot, especially with the person adjusting either his hair or makeup. He’s not even posed in any way. From the pictures tweeted all day, loved the jacket with the spikes. I want them to show him in a variety of clothing, because he looks good in anything. Well, almost anything, that jacket up top does him no favors.

    What I want to know is, how much trouble did the “make-up artist” get into for leaking the pictures and details through twitter all day? I can tell you one thing, it would make me hesitant to hire him for future shoots.

  6. I’ll reserve my comments until I see the finished product. This might be one of the F***gate or dildo-gate dicussions on the roll where we got burned in the end. But I get the feeling that adam haters will have a field day on this.

    At this moment, all I can say is only Adam Lambert can pull something like this. He’ll keep people talking. An oh yes, this is just one of his costumes. We haven’t seen the black jacket with spikes yet.

  7. What a stupid outfit. bwahahaha Adam, if you are on the cover of your album as the Michelen Man there will be more talk about that than your actual music. It’s a wtf moment I’m having right now.

  8. I hope this progresses into a wiggly, scantily clothed shiny happy Adam… :shock_tb:

  9. Seriously, though, the photographer tweeted other outfits and accessories that look FAR more promising:

    THE BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

    http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r116/LondonLady72/AdamCastle.jpg

    It was a 12 hour photo shoot with MANY looks and outfit changes. Also the make up artist said he was forbidden to release an of the REAL shots. So my guess what he did Tweet ended up on the reject pile.

  10. A thread by its own? oh no you didn’t, mj!

    I knew this was coming, but I was really really hoping you wouldn’t go there, MJ ;-) But news is news. And all’s fair in the game of “lets dissect every last detail about the idols” so I definitely can’t blame you!

  11. That was too funny. his face is beautiful though. I think they showed us this one to make us laugh and of course talk abt Adam some more. either that or he has an endorsement deal with michelin. way too funny.

  12. What I want to know is, how much trouble did the ‘make-up artist’  get into for leaking the pictures and details through twitter all day? I can tell you one thing, it would make me hesitant to hire him for future shoots.

    Although the guy seems really enamored with Adam, I, too, found his behavior to be unprofessional.

  13. Although the guy seems really enamored with Adam, I, too, found his behavior to be unprofessional.

    I found it especially hilarious that he literally tweets, “Sorry can’t send any pics of the shoot.” Then he sends pics of the shoot. Wha?

  14. I wonder what went on at this photo shoot. Adam looks a sumo wrestler who’s dressed for a trip to Antarctica in this photo. Maybe the finished product will come out looking much better, than this photo does.

  15. I think Adam has a new nickname Glittery Alien Michelin man in black.

    You can tell this shot isn’t really a shot, especially with the person adjusting either his hair or makeup

    They always have makeup men around when they aren’t doing shots. I wonder why he was adjusting his makeup if he was not going to be taking a picture?

  16. Can I do the conspiracy theory take that this is some brilliant marketing strategy where they make you go wtf, the pic goes viral, and gets everyone interested in his album? LMAO

  17. I hope this progresses into a wiggly, scantily clothed shiny happy Adam’ ¦

    Hmm, yeah, almost makes me think of a caterpillar now – maybe it’s a metamorphosis shoot where he transforms from a fat, wiggly caterpillar into a beautiful bedazzled butterfly. Yeah…that’s it.

  18. I wonder what went on at this photo shoot. Adam looks a sumo wrestler who’s dressed for a trip to Antarctica in this photo. Maybe the finished product will come out looking much better, than this photo does.

    A glam sumo wrestler.

    Well this picture is definitely being talked about, and laughed about. There are whole montages being created as we post.

  19. Perez got hold of the Michelin man photo…

    How Do We Say This Delicately???

    What the heck is he wearing??????????

    There is nothing “glam” about this, sweetie!

    A Perezcious insider sent us this startling image of American Idol runner-up Adam Labert at a photo shoot for his album artwork, earlier this week.

    Just because you put sequins on a trash bag and add some big puffy sleeves does not make it fashion. It just makes it stoopid!

    But who is he to laugh when he himself seems to be wearing a few spare tires! LOL.

  20. “Can I do the conspiracy theory take that this is some brilliant marketing strategy where they make you go wtf, the pic goes viral, and gets everyone interested in his album? LMAO”

    -I’ll go with you on this one. It will keep people interested on how his album cover will turn out to be and eventually his CD.

  21. I love how the makeup guy is now blaming this on tweet fans and backtracking as fast as he can:

    @Lefil01 sry u dnt lk the 1 pic. Every picture he took was beautiful & amazing. My 1 camera pic doesn’t do him justice. My bad. Yall begged

    And oh yeah, the camera pic distorted the poofy jacket and Big Boy hair. Sure.

  22. The whole time the make up guy was tweeting, I kept wondering if he would get into trouble for doing so, and if he realized how quickly the internet community would run with everything he tweeted.

    Adam’s record company is making a huge investment in him, and they will want his brand protected. (And, yes, Adam is a brand now!) I don’t think this guy thought ahead when he tweeted this photo. It won’t matter much in the end, but I can’t imagine that this was authorized by anyone in charge, and Adam must not be pleased.

    We got lots of behind the scenes shots from the RS shoot, but they all looked fabulous even if they weren’t used in the final cut. That’s good brand management.

    Poor BB. He must have woken up to this this morning.

    But his face looks absolutely beautiful!!

  23. LOL, Ozarka. I love how Perez claims he’s got an insider when this photo has been already all over the internet. Nice try.

  24. When I showed my husband this pic of Adam early this morning, after he chuckled, he thought of DEVO (?). Since I don’t know them was he even close to comparing? I would get a big kick out of telling him he was nuts :) :) :) Anyone???

  25. They always have makeup men around when they aren’t doing shots. I wonder why he was adjusting his makeup if he was not going to be taking a picture?

    What I was saying is it’s not a finished shot. It’s a picture taken by a makeup artist that wasn’t supposed to post any pictures for the shoot. I’m sure there are actual shots of him in the outfit by the photographer, but this is not representative of the supposed “vision” of the shot. I think his face looks beautiful in the shot, but yeah, the jacket is wack.

  26. If I saw this walking down the street, I would crack up laughing.
    Adam, dear, you’re beautiful, so please use another picture for your album cover. Although the people thinking this is a viral marketing strategy may be right, as that IS a really unprofessional thing for a makeup artist to do…

  27. In some interview Adam mentioned he liked a great new designer, Gareth Pugh. He said –check him out –and I did.
    I would bet this design is by that guy!

    I cannot re:locate the article/pictures that showed the designs that were like this style of ‘clothing’  er’ ¦ ‘costume’ . He is known for doing ‘out there’  designs (his 2008 fashion show indicates this more than his new line).

    Adam ‘“you would have gotten my “Idol” votes had I been living in the US. BUT, if I got a vote for your cover shot —glad there are more pictures to choose from!

  28. WHY DO YOU SHOW PPL THAT PICTURE??

    IT WILL SRSLY NOT BE ON THE COVER FOR GODS SAKE!

    Poor Adam, he probably didn’t want that guy posting that picture, and even so we don’t even know what the outfit is for. We don’t know what it rly looks like. Way to give it more attention.

    DID U NOT SEE THE OTHER, MORE COOLER, PICTURES HE POSTED? YEAH. I’M PRETTY SURE ADAM LIKES THOSE OUTFITS MORE.

  29. OMG.

    So this is what a Glittery Alien from the Planet Fierce looks like. Damn, Adam looks like a freaking Alien Teletubby. Ridiculous.

    Well, now I’m not even sure if Adam’s going the Lady Gaga route. Because she seems to exploit or accentuate her sexuality and body? Could Adam be any more neutered or asexual? So he’s not going for rock cred nor electro/pop cred either. WTF?

  30. I’m going to go with the theory a few others have posted (a stretch perhaps but…) that it’s just something they wrapped around him to help set glitter/sequins/paint/whatnot they put on his arms…Please? LOL

  31. Hair doesn’t bother me. (Then again, my favorite David Cook hair was “Cookie Neutron” from the Top 2.”)

    The “jacket,” though. Adam’s sexiness is in his long, slithery frame and the way he moves. Although an album cover is of course a static picture, I cannot imagine him moving in that outfit.

    I also can’t believe they made up that outfit just as a head fake for the fans. SOMEONE thought that might make a good cover picture. Hopefully, cooler and more brand conscious heads will prevail. Adam Lambert’s cover is going to have him wearing something out there. But this outfit is out in the Kuiper Belt (beyond the orbit of Pluto).

  32. LMAO. The outfit looks really stupiddddddddd. Don’t like this hairstyle either, ew. Emo hair FTW!!!!

  33. I’m going to go with the theory a few others have posted (a stretch perhaps but’ ¦) that it’s just something they wrapped around him to help set glitter/sequins/paint/whatnot they put on his arms’ ¦Please? LOL

    It does like some kind of cover, but I can’t figure out the loop around the neck. It could be some kind of a thermal heat pack.

  34. I actually like the Gumby hair. Somehow I thought of an exaggerated Bowie when I first saw it.

  35. LOL! I was hoping someone had saved this pic since the make-up artist removed it from his Twitter account before I had the chance to see what all the fuss was about. Terraj, Jasen said in his tweets that he was only going to post a picture if he had Adam’s permission. I could see Adam cracking up and saying, “Post that one!”

    I have a lot of faith in Warwick Saint. I expect an interesting, provocative album cover. Quite different from what we’re used to see with Idol debuts.

  36. I thought ‘The Blob’ was just a movie. WTF? I’d prefer Lady Gaga’s Kermit the Frog suit to this.

  37. Perez got hold of the Michelin man photo’ ¦

    Exacto, SybilTrelawney (cool ref to Harry Potter character)!

    Y’know, I’ve never gotten the Adam sex appeal for apparently hordes of drooling straight women. To me, he’s obviously a good entertainer but in terms of sexual vibes, he sets off my gaydar instantly. I like the idea of him as a cross-over hunk, I’m just not feelin’ it.

    This does nothing to change that, and in fact makes me wonder whether he’s getting wardrobe advice from a Martian stylist. But hey, it’ll get people talking/arguing, and that’s a big part of the game….

  39. OMG I can’t wait MJ

    mj Aug 14th, 2009 at 12:04 pm

    I’m just about to post a pic you all will like better ;).

  40. No Sunn @12:03 – El Divo is my cup of tea (BIG TIME) – my husband was a rocker in his “hey” day so I would assume that would be the genre he was referencing!!!

  41. mj Aug 14th, 2009 at 12:04 pm

    I’m just about to post a pic you all will like better ;).

    mj you’re such a tease. Now I can’t stop refreshing until I see the pic.

  42. So, if they were trying out tons of different looks over the course of a 12 hour shoot, here’s hoping that this guy tweeted this one because he knew it was one that most likely wouldn’t be used. I’m sure it would never make the cover, and after the negative response to it (I assume they might pay attention to that kind of thing?), hopefully not even the album art.

    Um…at least we know that they weren’t kidding about thinking outside the box? :)

    Y’know, I’ve never gotten the Adam sex appeal for apparently hordes of drooling straight women. To me, he’s obviously a good entertainer but in terms of sexual vibes, he sets off my gaydar instantly

    .

    I think that Adam sets off almost every cognitive person’s gaydar instantly. :) It’s not about that–it’s just that he’s very good-looking and attractive. I don’t have to feel like I even hypothetically have a chance with him to find him attractive–if I did, I’d never be able to find any married celebrity attractive, or any celebrity at all, really, because really, not much of a chance there, right? But good-looking and attractive are good-looking and attractive, regardless of orientation. :)

  43. I’m going to go with the theory a few others have posted (a stretch perhaps but’ ¦) that it’s just something they wrapped around him to help set glitter/sequins/paint/whatnot they put on his arms’ ¦Please? LOL

    It does like some kind of cover, but I can’t figure out the loop around the neck. It could be some kind of a thermal heat pack.

    That was my theory. Although @Squirrely, the crop thing does help ‘“ makes him look like some SciFi ruler instead.

    Or, the story line is, “The Glittery Alien fell to Earth and landed in the Antarctic …”

  44. Oh Perez can SUCK IT!! You know if Lady Gaga was wearing this, he’s be jizzin’ in his pants with praise!

  45. I just knew you were going to post this MJ, because heck, it’s hits. But, I have to admit, a little part of me just died inside to find this picture at the top of your blog.

    I love avant garde, but this is just fugly and massively unflattering. I can’t imagine this looking good from any angle, glammed up, blingeed out, anything.

    I have a lot of faith in Warwick Saint. I expect an interesting, provocative album cover.

    I don’t. Not anymore. Seriously. He’s in charge and he let this hideousness happen. It takes a lot of work to make Adam look bad.

  46. Thanks everyone!! You have made my day – not only do I get to tell him “he’s nuts” but after seeing their pic I am going to smack him upside the head! :thumbup_tb:

  47. You have to have full body armor to be an Adam fan, not just thick skin. Ok, other fan idols, yuck it up. It is fugly, funny, weird, what were they thinking….

    Maybe I can laugh later.

  48. LisaE, we’ve seen the jacket, and this ain’t it. We also know Jasen wasn’t going to post any pics without Adam’s permission. I think we’re being punked.

  49. Okay: beautiful face, beautiful hair, saddest outfit on earth! Hopefully it’s a joke, or else it’ll maybe be one of the pictures that are inside the album cover, but not THE cover shot. There’s no way that they would cover up that fabulous body of his– let’s give them credit for not being idiots, LOL!

    It does like some kind of cover, but I can’t figure out the loop around the neck. It could be some kind of a thermal heat pack.

    That’s what threw me off, readon. I can make up something for the arms, but the neck loop is…I have nothing.

    Maybe it’s some kind of bondage outfit? Maybe they use all that rubbery stuff to lash him to a dungeon wall by the neck and arms???? Oh boy, I need coffee.

  51. Gumby Hair, Caterpillar, Body Armor, an Alien Teletubby, you guys are killing me but no more than this picture LMAO… :lol_tb:

    Waiting for the other pic MJ…

  52. I’m convinced nothing could be worse than Blake Lewis’ album cover art, so I’m not worried. I’m sure they took more than one pic. ;-)

    I quite enjoyed DEVO back in the day!

  53. Two things:

    1. The stylist/whoever is fixing his hair.
    2. That spiky jacket of doom. I mean someone could get impaled on that thing if they get too close.

    So I think the black puffy thing is covering the jacket. I mean it doesn’t explain the Jimmy Neutron hair or the gold sequiny….thing, but I think this picture is a bit misleading.

    Still kinda funny though.

  54. Oh I am ever so hopeful the new picture gets posted in the next 20 minutes – I am leaving to go back to work and then straight to the concert and I do not want to leave with that imagine in my mind. Eek. I do not think that he would approve that one in a million years…

  55. LisaE, we’ve seen the jacket, and this ain’t it. We also know Jasen wasn’t going to post any pics without Adam’s permission. I think we’re being punked.

    I’m sure Adam took hundreds of shots in multiple looks, including the jacket. However, that does not negate the fact that this particular outfit/hairdo/god-knows-what was among that group. We’re not being punked in any way other than Jasen might have picked one of the more insane things to tweet because he thought it was funny (and maybe thought nobody was paying attention?!?!). Adam might have let him post a pic, but I seriously doubt Adam approved this particular one. He would have been crazy to do that.

    ETA: For the record, I do love these discussions on AI sites (the *locked* one on ONTD_AI had me crying with laughter last night as everyone gasped in collective horror), because we know/love or at least understand Adam (or understand the context of this picture). I only worry about it getting out into the general public – like say Perez’ site. There are some idiotic Adam fans who think Perez needs to know everything about Adam. They tweet him about his every move, good, bad, disastrous. TBH, Perez doesn’t have to work very hard for Adam material.

  56. Alternatives:

    1. Someone had the fashion equivalent of a cerebral hemorrhage.

    2. Adam is auditioning for a part in the next Star Trek movie.

    3. He’s trying out for the part of Emperor Leto Atreides.

    4. Norma Kamali designed that outfit after her iconic down coats of the 1980s.

    5. They’re just having a laugh with us.

    6. It looks much better in person.

    Let’s just hope its number 6, or that the pictures get discarded for a picture of him wearing some nice OTT black leather.

    Oh hey, GREAT theory!!

  58. “Well once again, love it or hate it, he ain’t gonna be boring.”

    And there you have it. It is one of the ugliest things I have ever seen, however, and I can only hope that this is the last time we see this awful look on him. Ever. I mean, really. Why would anyone put him in something that hides his beautiful body, anyway!?

  59. I’m a HUUUGE Adam fan , but that picture is damned funny. I chuckled and snarked all morning about it. Just because I’m a fan doesn’t mean I can’t see the funny.

    Also, I keep in mind that this is one picture out of hundreds, and one outfit out of several. Not to mention that this is a picture taken without the setup, during down time (hairstylist is in he shot). So, in my mind it is no big deal, and not even remotely indicative of the final result of the shoot.

    In fact, if this picture keeps Adam’s name in the news and blogs, and develops curiosity about the album, then all the better. It’s all buzz, and buzz is always good.

  60. Maybe it’s some kind of bondage outfit? Maybe they use all that rubbery stuff to lash him to a dungeon wall by the neck and arms???? Oh boy, I need coffee.

    Hmmm. Getting an image. Going with it.

    You have to have full body armor to be an Adam fan, not just thick skin.

    LOL I’m a huge Adam fan and I can’t stop laughing. No armor needed. Adam is always walking a fine line in his fashion choices and sometimes he goes waaaay over into ridiculous (can anyone say Young Hollywood). It’s part of what I love about him…even as I occasionally wish he had someone at home to stop him from walking out the door. Obviously when you put Adam together with fashion photographers you’re going to end up with some really strange and possibly ugly stuff because neither one of them see the line between fashion and ridiculous that is so obvious to the rest of us. Totally appreciate the laughter he gives.

  63. Yes PJ @ 12:27 I know my hubby did also enjoy them – he’s ref was most likely due to the “outlandish” outfit – and my reference had more to do with their looks as I find Adam not hurting in that department at all!

  64. But I get the feeling that adam haters will have a field day on this.

    I am not an Adam hater but even I am having a field day with this. I think Adam wouldn’t mind us having a few (ok many) laughs at his expense, he strikes me as a generous guy. :laugh_tb:

  65. Man, this thread is going to be epic. I can’t wait. **grabs popcorn**

  66. you know who he reminds me of?

    the goodyear tyre advert cartoon guy whose body is made up of tyres…i cant seem to find a pic of it sadly

    I think they need to hire somone to be with him. The position would be “reality checker” or “Adam filter”. He does so well 99% of the time, but when he slips ups, it is usually a doozie.

    I agree and they would have to protect his neck too from those spikes (plus others who get anywhere near him.)

    The funny thing is, most of them turned out positive in the end. LOL. It’s so fun being an Adam fan if your heart can take it.

  70. Maybe it’s some kind of bondage outfit? Maybe they use all that rubbery stuff to lash him to a dungeon wall by the neck and arms???? Oh boy, I need coffee.

    ROTFLMFAO – whatever works right??

  71. Is there a sequined ET on the top?

    Snuffles, you had the best description (Alien royalty) of all…. i’m still LOL

    It probably goes with the space music?
    I would prefer the decor relating to space than the extra-terrestrial outfit…

  72. He kinda looks like a gigantic chocolate statue. No wonder Tiggers like Adam Lamberts.

  73. So I think the black puffy thing is covering the jacket.

    Is the jacket made out of gold sequins? Even if you take away the black puffy thing, the gold sequins thing is fugly too and adds about 100 pounds.

  74. LOL I’m a huge Adam fan and I can’t stop laughing. No armor needed.

    Just my thoughts!

  75. Maybe it is the new wave version of the Sienfeld puffy shirt?

    Perhaps he’s going for the glam polar bear look?

    He’s the next contestant on Wipeout?

  76. Where’s Mombert when you need her? She seems like the voice of reason that Adam might actually listen to (ok, maybe not so much, but at least she would tell it like it is!)

    Hmmm…didn’t all of this take place within a week? LOL.

  78. Man, this thread is going to be epic. I can’t wait. **grabs popcorn**

    I know it! **orders extra-large bucket of popcorn**

    But, honestly, that picture made my day. I literally choked on my coffee. I love that Perez has picked up on it, because, once again, Adam is getting the buzz. But, this might not be a good thing for Jasen Kaplan! Ooopsie!

  79. Maybe it is the new wave version of the Sienfeld puffy shirt?

    Perhaps he’s going for the glam polar bear look?

    He’s a new contestant on Wipeout?

    :lol_tb:

  80. I am enjoying this thread so much because it seems that even the Lambert fans (like me) are getting a big kick out of this. Love the connections, to other photos, you all are making. The most I’ve laughed in a long time!

  81. He’s starring as the monster in “Ghostbusters 4: West Hollywood Haunting”?

    Well, first there was weightgate, then bragate, then envelopegate (though Matt got the brunt of that) and there’s been many a twittergate …

    Now Michelin Man/Gumby/Nanook of the North/Jimmy Neutron gate …

  83. Someone help me. I can’t stop LOLing to myself and the funny comments in this thread aren’t helping either.

    THIS!

    And the reason I came out of lurking. This is such a drama-free community compared to others I’ve observed. I may read about my fave (Adam) at a few other places but MJ’s has *all* the Idol news and a respectful group of people that just seem to have fun. Thanks for that, guys! And especially MJ!

  85. maybe it’s an inflatable outfit and still need to be inflated? …promising ;)
    :lol_tb:

    Adam is so OTT

  86. Adam is going hiking in the Glittery Alien mountains. He is singing NoBo and he’s using his hair as a compass. He’ll use the light as his guide. The man on the right is giving him final directions. Watch out, Kara. He’s coming for YOU.

  87. I love that Perez has picked up on it, because, once again, Adam is getting the buzz.

    But is this the right kind of buzz? A lot of people already think Adam is ridiculous and things like this just cement that in their mind. I dunno. Do we have any PR people?

  88. I must admit this gets a lot more comments than red plaid shirts and bedroom hair….

  89. He’s the spokesmodel for the Lady Gaga Life Jacket line from LL Bean?

  90. Yesterday it was funny, today is just too much for me (separate thread?).
    Btw, Twitter is not devil, it’s worse – it’s the new god.

    I can’t imagine the response to “glamorized” photos from Elle. I’m not thinking of Adam’s ones in the first place. At first funny, then…

  91. Too funny! I’m just shaking my head like an indulgent aunt about this! I do think his expression–or lack thereof–is priceless. He looks kind of quietly horrified yet resigned to his Gumby Fate.

    I fervently hope that they have tons of outfits from which to choose and that this one won’t make the cut. Unless it’s for his comedy album! lol

  92. Adam is all about sexy. This photo is so NOT sexy. Ugggggggghhhhhhhh.

  93. All I can say is “WHAT THE (fill in the blank) IS THIS?!!! Hope this is one shot they decide NOT to use. And I’m BEGGING his hair isn’t like this for the whole shoot!!!!! Just my opinion but…LOL!

  94. [eddiemurphyvoice] I’m Gay Gumby, Dammit! [/eddiemurphyvoice]

    Whew. Ok, I’m done now. LOL!

  95. I think Adam will surprise (not) us all by wearing THIS hair in tonight’s concert :tongue2_tb:

  97. “He’s the new Puff Daddy?”

    Damn, that totally made spit coffee. LMAO.

    Well, Idols do like to get endorsements. And Cowell did say that he expects Adam him to be big outside the US. Heh.

  98. I love that Perez has picked up on it, because, once again, Adam is getting the buzz.

    Totally! And the funny thing is that Perez WORSHIPS Lady Gaga and never pokes fun at her ridiculous outfits. He applauds her for them. Yet when Adam does it…it’s a fail. PH is such an idiot. Yay for the media attention though! It’s great for Adam!

  99. MJ might be having too much fun that’s she’s forgetting to post the other picture which she said is better….or was is just a tease?

  100. But is this the right kind of buzz? A lot of people already think Adam is ridiculous and things like this just cement that in their mind.

    Exactly. They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity but this will test that theory. Too many people dislike him and are rooting for him to fail.

  101. lola, the other picture is the one MJ just posted in the Rolling Stone post.
    Ok, I loved Adam but I didnt like that pic, but I ´m having son much fun with all the comments here lol

  102. Exactly. They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity but this will test that theory.

    I think it will be fine. It will sure make more people pay more attention when his actual album comes out! Just for the sheer curiosity/potential epic trainwreck potential.

    All jokes aside, he sure knows how to get tongues wagging in his direction!

    It must’ve been a long, cold winter on Planet Fierce.

    Bwwaaahhh! Yes. And apparently it snows sequins there.

  103. The internet is full of bad pictures of every celebrity out there and unless they are mug shots the viewers just laugh and move on….I don’t think a picture of Adam dressed up as a brown marshmallow is going to turn someone into an Adam hater….though the haters are going to get a real kick out of this. (as are the fans, since this is too funny!)

  104. “lola, the other picture is the one MJ just posted in the Rolling Stone post.”

    – Ok. I thought MJ being so resourceful has found another picture from the shoot. My bad.

  105. It must’ve been a long, cold winter on Planet Fierce.

    :laugh_tb: :laugh_tb:

  106. But is this the right kind of buzz? A lot of people already think Adam is ridiculous and things like this just cement that in their mind.

    Exactly. They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity but this will test that theory. Too many people dislike him and are rooting for him to fail.

    Those folk weren’t gonna buy his cd anyway, so it’s really a wash. People really don’t buy a cd for the ‘cover’ anymore, do they? The very fact that a simple cover shot generates this much attention couldn’t possible be bad. Finally do we really think that this is the cover? Nah, just gives us something to snark about until the next Adam news that seems to be filling our summer.

    Is it newsworthy, hell naw, but he’s got serious buzz, and believe me, it’s not bad.

  107. It’s all high-concept rock video.

    Picture this…

    Adam the frumpy sad alien lands on some planet in this outfit and is immediately arrested by the Intergalactic Fashion Police.

    There is a long Eighties style musical montage of him getting a makeover ala ZZ Top’s “Legs” video, and then he emerges as the Glittery Alien from the Planet Fierce in the ultra-spiky black jacket and butterfly-wing eye gear from one of those shots.

    Everyone dances and the hottest guy in school asks him to the prom. The end. Happily ever after.

  108. I’m sure someone else has already made this observation, but —

    Nah, I think the puffy thing is just a custom jacket to keep him warm and he’ll remove it once they’re doing the photo shoot’ ¦?

    Nice try! It’s STIFLINGLY HOT in NY!

  109. Adam the frumpy sad alien lands on some planet in this outfit and is immediately arrested by the Intergalactic Fashion Police.

    Best.post.ever. !!!! Thread closed. HA!

  110. I have been lmao all morning over this pic. I find it hilarious and epic and just so lolz-worthy. And the look on Adam’s face here is priceless. I think there’s less than a 1% chance this outfit is getting anywhere near the cover of his album, but I’m so glad it got posted b/c I love having new Adam stuff to talk about–the nuttier the better. I love you, Adam…don’t ever change!

  111. I do not like and Adam doesn’t look like he likes it either.

    I don’t want a CD with this on the cover!

  112. Well, I love me some Adam, but that’s just HORRIBLE! Forget BigBoy and The Michelin Man, Adam looks like Astro Boy. That hair is a HUGE no. And the outfit? Brown sequens?

    Please God, tell Adam in his dreams NOT to go here for his album cover unless that look is HUGELY coolified in Photoshop.

  113. Exactly. They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity but this will test that theory. Too many people dislike him and are rooting for him to fail.

    Nah…..They would have to look for something more tangible…this isnt fail..its just a hilariously bad picture…………… :lol_tb:

  114. Lol, the look on Adam’s face is “Dude, this looks like SH*T!”

  115. It looks like a glittery, Adamized sumo wrestler costume to me. Sort of. I can’t wait to see the actual shot though!

  116. I was checking out Wiki on Gareth Pugh and found this. It’s possible it’s his design.

    Pugh’s trademark is his experimentation with form and volume. He often uses “nonsensically shaped, wearable sculptures” to “distort the human body almost beyond recognition.” Elements in his designs include PVC inflated into voluminous coats, black and white patchwork squares, Perspex discs linked like chain mail, and shiny latex masks and leggings”

    That being said, I don’t want Adam’s body distorted. It’s pretty just the way it is.

  117. I don’t want a CD with this on the cover!

    No way in hell this is going to be on the CD. First of all, they wouldn’t leak a picture with the actual outfit he’ll be wearing. I’m sure they picked a picture with an ensemble they won’t be using. Thank f’n god. Still LMAO…..

  118. you need to read my guidelines. if you keep complaining, I’ll put you in moderation

  119. You just need Tommy Lee Jones & Will Smith and it’s picture perfect.

  120. Well, Idols do like to get endorsements. And Cowell did say that he expects Adam him to be big outside the US. Heh.

    Well this certainly makes him look big. :lol_tb:

    Well there went the buzz for me, why oh why I say to myself each and every day does ‘plaid’  ALWAYS have to be mentioned in so many threads

    LOL After this it’d be kind of nice to see him stripped down — uh, whoa, okay, back on track — and dressed in plaid like Kris.

    ETA:
    “You just need Tommy Lee Jones & Will Smith and it’s picture perfect.”

    LOL Best response yet!! That’d be awesome!

  121. I really hope Jasen Kaplan gets slammed for posting this picture. I tweeted him what I thought of it. I have a rule when I put on clothes — if it doesn’t make me look alluring or attractive I don’t wear it. I don’t buy it. And I damn sure don’t take pictures of me wearing it. :guns_tb:

  122. No way in hell this is going to be on the CD. First of all, they wouldn’t leak a picture with the actual outfit he’ll be wearing.

    This. I suppose they could still conceivably use it as one of the album art pictures, though I doubt that, but there is no way that they are going to use this look for the cover of an outfit/look when it has already been leaked. You don’t want people to look at a cover and go, “Oh right, I remember that thing from a twitter pic.” Thank god. I mean, maybe he leaked this one because they had already decided not to use it–they must have tried out a number of different looks over the course of however many hours–but they’re definitely not using it prominently now.

  123. First of all, they wouldn’t leak a picture with the actual outfit he’ll be wearing.

    Who knows. To be perfectly honest, I seriously suspect that the make-up artist did his own thing here. He was told not to post a picture of an actual shot and he didn’t, so I’m not sure he felt like he needed approval to post this. His deletion of the post and his subsequent tweets indicate that he was doing his own thing.

    His tweet as of a few minutes ago:


    JasenKaplan: I can’t wait to get some booze in me today!

    Oh yes Jasen, you need a good drunk right now. You had no clue what you were wading into.

  124. You just need Tommy Lee Jones & Will Smith and it’s picture perfect.

    :laugh_tb:

    Good times people. Good times.

  125. Those folk weren’t gonna buy his cd anyway, so it’s really a wash. People really don’t buy a cd for the ‘cover’ anymore, do they?

    A lot of people don’t buy CDs at all any more but that’s not the point.

    If you are an established act like Lady Gaga or an Idol everyone likes you can afford to pull these stunts. Neither of these things is true here.

    LOL! Wow – this has certainly been a summer to remember. I haven’t even had a vacation, but who needs one with Adam around to keep things interesting?

  127. Please God, tell Adam in his dreams NOT to go here for his album cover unless that look is HUGELY coolified in Photoshop.

    Even photoshop cannot coolify that mess,LOL

    He was sent back to schoolin’ regarding twitter! :mrgreen_wp: Its Diablo!!!I tell ya! :devil_tb:

  129. If you are an established act like Lady Gaga or an Idol everyone likes you can afford to pull these stunts. Neither of these things is true here.

    Aw, it is so not that big of a deal IMO. All that really matters is the quality of the music. If anything, more people will know and/or remember his name now. He’s not even releasing anything for months! This will not kill his career.

    Besides, opportunities for high quality snark like this one do not come around often. It should be a law that you must enjoy the laughs while you have the chance! Even Gokey can’t beat this.

  130. If you are an established act like Lady Gaga or an Idol everyone likes you can afford to pull these stunts. Neither of these things is true here.

    Err..what stunt has he pulled? other than a bad pic from a photshoot leaking out on twatter?

    That’s just panic over nothing

  131. OMG! Not good. Please Adam don’t do this. Oh boy I’m scared.

  132. And he’s not like Gaga where he is taking himself soooo seriously that he’d actually wear that to Starbucks.

    Who knows Adam might wear something like this to Starbucks, but he’d have to order an iced latte to cool off.

  133. This photo is so not gonna matter in October when his CD drops. Unless, of course, this photo or some hideous facsimile thereof actually lands on the cover (that just won’t happen).

    Loving all the comments. I keep LOLing and my boss and co-workers keep looking at me… Wish I were home so I could LOL with impunity.

  134. This shot is fun and Adam looks so happy in this, he loves to play dress up doesn’t he? :)

    If anything this shows that the photographer isn’t afraid to take some risks and there will definetly be some hilarious pictures, I bet there will be some very interesting shots too.

    ETA: I forgot to add, to those who are harrassing the poor make up artist who sent this photo: big fail

  135. Adam looks thrilled…
    I don’t even get it! Who would even design such an horrible thing? But it’s great for the lolz!

  136. oooo noooo .. that’s not a good look.

    They may have been going for the glittery space man look but it’s on it’s way to being like Eddie Murphy in The Nutty Professor. …. adding a few sequins to a Mitchelin Tyre Man suit doesn’t make it cool or trendy … and BROWN? …. BROWN? … oh noes.

    … also you have a guy who’s had a few issues with weight growing up and what do they do? … stick him in a fat suit for one of the most important photoshoots of his life ….lol

    Poor Adam …. I have my doubts that this will make the cover (at least I hope not) … so have my fingers crossed that that spikey black jacket makes an appearance.

  137. Hey all – I’m buying that CD as soon as it comes out (I actually can’t wait!!) I really don’t give a s*** what the cover looks like because I love Adam for his singing ability. I was just saying if the cover looks anything like that it would be ridiculous. I truly doubt it will though. Adam is way more in control than that.

  138. OK, I’ll bite…. why is Adam dressed like he’s going to a glittery black-tie high-society reception – on the POLAR ICE CAP???

  139. I’m now feeling for that JasenKaplan. Out of his excitement and giddines over Adam, he sent out a sample of the photo shoot. Unfortunately, he picked the wrong picture to share.

    Lisa E – no need to panic. Adam has worst pictures than this in the internet. It will pass. At least, he still looks beautiful despite the outfit.

  140. …From across the frozen wasteland of ice-bound Planet Fierce, a dark Prince came striding, his ebony locks impervious to the frigid winds. Half-man, half-caterpillar, his glittery form elicited awe from all who beheld him…

    ‘ ¦And it’s now in the NY Post. No joke. Not gonna link to it.

    Well, since is word is WAAAAY out on this, in more ways than one, my guess is that the resulting consequences and surely unintended hilarity over it will ultimately kill its chances of actually making it to the album cover, so we should probably all just relax and uh… keep pointing and laughing….?

  142. It’s Adam’s choice and he does choose Far Out…… We love him no matter what, but this will look so weird when I’m sitting 90 degree weather in Florida like I am now. I’m sweating just looking at this. This is not cool…..I say Not Cool !!!!!

    Poor Kaplan may lose his job over this leak…..he’ll know better next time.

  143. edit: don’t question posters motives or demand explanations from people. Everyone is entitled to an opinion without an interrogation from the “true fan” police. Again, I’m NOT running a fansite.

  144. Tony: No, it will not. We don’t even know how real any of this is. It makes for a hilarious thread, tho, that’s for sure!

  145. On a serious note. I think this picture and the other pictures of the costume stuff like the spiked jacket gives us a clue on where the album is going. Mr. Adam Lambert is the new Mr. Gaga. Even though the picture is funny I think Adam is signaling that he is going for a pop sound and feel. I don’t think Rock is in Adam’s future, IMO

  146. Lisa E – no need to panic. Adam has worst pictures than this in the internet. It will pass. At least, he still looks beautiful despite the outfit.

    oh totally … inspite of the sequined sleeping bag the face is still soooo pretty

  147. That image is spreading like wildfire. The NY Post seems to have gotten it from Towleroad. Twitter ought to be interesting tonight. Wonder if Adam will say anything.

  148. Lisa E – you may click on the NY Post link. It’s not that bad. They’re showing another outfit he used giving a glimpse of hope. So, it’s all good.

    Wow. I wonder if the music will suck as much as the picture.

    Only if the puffy jacket designer is also the songwriter!

  150. I hope they only use this face. :) I just tweeted Jasen Kaplan, expressing dismay at the cover. (Not really–I just told him the picture was causing hilarity amongst Idol fans.) I wonder how many tweets he has received today. :P

    I will pre-order the album, if I can, or buy the single the *second* it drops, silly picture be damned!

  151. Lisa E – no need to panic. Adam has worst pictures than this in the internet. It will pass. At least, he still looks beautiful despite the outfit.

    I know. I’m not actually panicked. Mostly because I know Adam, the photog and the makeup artist aren’t making the ultimate decision here. I’m just a worry wart about Adam’s wider career and perception in the outside world. He doesn’t always seem to care, so I tend to worry for him. I just want him to do well. So when things like this come out, I’m torn between LMAO and crying. The life of a fan… :P

    btw, This whole thing is killing my work day…

  152. Judging from the look on his face, I don’t think this is the type of Sparkle Motion he was going for.

  153. “He doesn’t always seem to care, so I tend to worry for him. I just want him to do well. So when things like this come out, I’m torn between LMAO and crying. The life of a fan’ ¦ :P”

    -I do too but I tend to focus on the positive (thanks to Adam). If Adam fails, it will be because of his own doing. But so far, he has tons of fans who are just as excited about his future.

  154. It’s been suggested that this is a superimposed picture put out as a spoof to put people off the scent. I do hope so.

  155. Only if the puffy jacket designer is also the songwriter!

    :lol_tb:

    At least it proves that Adam isn’t going to be boring …. and I agree with the “Mr Gaga” thing …. I bet he makes some kick ass videos .. but I’m hoping that they don’t involve sumo suits

    Wow. I wonder if the music will suck as much as the picture

    No, silly! The sound will be “muffled” though.

  157. Positive possibilities:

    First of all, Warwick Saint’s oft seen crime scene lighting, blatant sex chick, bad bondage calendar motifs are not the fresh, never-seen, uniquely engaging, layered, story-telling nuanced sexuality I was hoping for. (YMMV, of course.) Yes, it was important for Adam to infiltrate the NYC fashion world. They make a good PR base. But why go GaGa? Why not someone uber chic? Or artsy? Inventive?

    Photogs get labelled. They need work in an ever-shrinking industry, so Saint has to keep churning out the same ole grind, pun intended, to keep eating. But the idea of having Adam’s debut cover being derivative anything, especially tarted up, imitation GaGa was a branding nightmare, IMHO. So kept hoping, maybe, just maybe, collaborative Adam said to Mr. Saint: what would you do given free reign. And Mr. Saint seized the opportunity to expand his range. Not many clients are willing to pay for that. Maybe Adam is. (Like all things, assume somehow this too comes out of Adam’s future sales, eventually.)

    This leaked picture actually gives me some hope. Sure it’s just one shot out of what was 4, maybe 5, set-ups. But at least it’s not neon bondage. Adam’s hair looks great. New and soft. The make-up is not over done. Again, shows at least “The pretty” was considered. And not just the whips and chains.

    Also, it indicates Mr. Saint might have been thinking larger than the “if you like GaGa” you’ll like this cover he twittered. (And double ugh to that. YMMV). Note Adam’s could be standing in front of white no-seam, yet they’re on location.(though those may just be white cards to bounce the light.) So this shot may be going to be Photoshopped with others. White is an easy to remove background. Or Adam’s simply going to raise his arms and it’s a tight, tight shot. And the whole point is soft folds around him with a little gleam from the sequins. (Except that he’s standing. And there is no reason to make your talent weary by standing unless you need it. But maybe he’s just up for a minute.) It may also be a protective cover over something spiky. Or it’s going to be laced tightly in a minute. Or it’s an action shot of it getting ripped about to happen. Or for all we know the thing attaches to an airhose and puffs up. And they’re going to photoshop it to make some kind of roaring muscled Asian sci-fi character. Or put an effect on it. But at least none of those things is overdone, seen-it-all-before, pin-up bondage.

    Adam’s expression is a smart one while you’re getting hair adjustment and lighting is being checked. Which is try to rest your face as much as possible.

    Now it’s strange it was tweeted at all. Because Warwick Saint promised to tweet all day and he didn’t. And Jasen Kaplan’s pic tweets have all been deleted. So, thinking all this means the cover will be fresh. That Mr. Saint is bringing something new. That they really want it to be a surprise. Because it will be so different than all the other “me-too’s” in the Warwick Saint gallery. It’s possible.

  158. It’s been suggested that this is a superimposed picture put out as a spoof to put people off the scent. I do hope so.

    Nah. I don’t think so. I think Adam’s just in an air blanket to keep warm while they set up lighting for a shot.

    If it’s upsetting to some that this made The Post, buckle up. I suspect the late-night hosts are going to have a blast with this. And it will do Adam absolutely no harm. In fact, he’ll probably be laughing his ass off at any jokes told at his expense regarding that stupid picture.

  159. Ummm…..only one word comes to mind: ridiculous (and not in a good day).

    I am starting to long for the day when the circus leaves town ….

  160. btw, This whole thing is killing my work day’ ¦

    God, yes it is. And my sleep last night.

    I was feeling sick last night (but much better today) and could do nothing more than lay in bed and check for the promised pretty twitpics from our chattytwitty JasenKaplan.

    I think those of us online last night had allowed the anticipation to so build up that when the pic finally came it was like …. what … the … HELL????

    Then folks here at mjs and on ontd-ai started having so much fun cleverly denigrating the look that I found myself LOLing so much that my kids wondered if I was yelping in pain from this weird illness that struck me.

    I tell ya, laughter is the best medicine, because I feel fine today.

    Now, I am amused by all the hand-wringing, second-guessing and speculation about what this whole crazy Michelin Big Boy look means and how news on this is spreading like wildfire. (One thing you can say about Adam is he keeps the buzz going, even when it’s not by his own hand.)

    Yup. No work getting done today.

    A side note: I noticed that on ontd_ai there was talk about locking the thread so that Perez Hilton would not get his hands on it. They apparently did lock it. How silly, though, because already by then it was on its way to going viral.

  161. Nah. I don’t think so. I think Adam’s just in an air blanket to keep warm while they set up lighting for a shot.

    lol .. only Adam could have a sequined air blanket.

    So there’s the possiility that he may be wearing something very skimpy underneath? .. perhaps some of the underwear that’s been thrown at him on stage? :blink_tb:

    LOL! Not unless the photoshoot creative director is also writing the music and doing the singing.

  163. Reminds me of a character from Ghostbusters. LOL

    Why can’t he just represent himself? I often think Adam’s heart is really more in acting although he is a very good singer.

  164. This leaked picture actually gives me some hope. Sure it’s just one shot out of what was 4, maybe 5, set-ups. But at least it’s not neon bondage. Adam’s hair looks great. New and soft. The make-up is not over done. Again, shows at least ‘The pretty’  was considered. And not just the whips and chains.

    I actually agree with this, not a fan or spikes and bondage.

  165. If you look at the gold in the background of his shirt, it sure looks like an alien like the one from Close Encounters. You can see it just squint!!! :hmm2_ee:

  166. We’ve been talking about him needing a haircut recently, but I sure hope future concert thread checklists don’t need to be edited to “Emo, Elvis, or Gumby?”

  167. Now it’s strange it was tweeted at all. Because Warwick Saint promised to tweet all day and he didn’t. And Jasen Kaplan’s pic tweets have all been deleted. So, thinking all this means the cover will be fresh. That Mr. Saint is bringing something new. That they really want it to be a surprise. Because it will be so different than all the other ‘me-too’s’  in the Warwick Saint gallery. It’s possible.

    Fifthhousesun, you are giving me hope, I love your take on things…

  168. This leaked picture actually gives me some hope. Sure it’s just one shot out of what was 4, maybe 5, set-ups. But at least it’s not neon bondage. Adam’s hair looks great. New and soft. The make-up is not over done. Again, shows at least ‘The pretty’  was considered. And not just the whips and chains.

    :blink_tb:


    I’m thinking, no.

    Nope.

    Nada.

    I’m thinking the picture is just bad. And funny. LOL!

  169. Can I go on record to say again how much I love this picture? It just keeps on bringing the lolz. I can’t get over it. And I am not in the least bit worried about the album cover. I predict it will be fierce and awesome and beautiful, just like Adam. And if nothing else, it sure won’t be boring. Back to wiping tears of joy and mirth off my cheeks.

  170. I do too but I tend to focus on the positive (thanks to Adam).

    Here’s the positive that I’ve taken out of this: Adam’s album cover can be totally and utterly mediocre now, but as long as he’s not wearing the brown-sequined-michelin-outfit and his hair doesn’t look like Jimmy Neutron, we’ll all be completely thrilled. This guy managed to do the impossible and lower expectations. :)

    Warwick Saint’s oft seen crime scene lighting, blatant sex chick, bad bondage calendar motifs

    Actually he did some amazing shots of Lady GaGa using brilliant colors (not neon) which I loved:

    http://www.warwicksaint.com/photographer/gallery/09

    After I saw the location I thought maybe that’s the direction they were heading in. (Actually, this photo, for all its lulz/horror, is bizarre in that there is no way it works with the setting. Why go to a gothic castle to get futuristic? That makes no sense.)

    ETA:

    The girl in the first photo here has rhinestones on her eyes (kinda like the ones the guy was making):

    http://www.warwicksaint.com/photographer/gallery/02

    I think that would like cool on Adam.

    Some of these shots are cool too:

    http://www.warwicksaint.com/photographer/gallery/03

  171. What I was saying is it’s not a finished shot. It’s a picture taken by a makeup artist that wasn’t supposed to post any pictures for the shoot. I’m sure there are actual shots of him in the outfit by the photographer, but this is not representative of the supposed ‘vision’  of the shot. I think his face looks beautiful in the shot, but yeah, the jacket is wack.

    I seriously doubt the photog would allow a makeup person leak any kind of shots of Adam’s outfit. I bet they tried to cover up Adam when Jasen took this shot. Little did he know that one pic would be the laughing stock of Twitter. Poor Adam.

  172. What a truly, stupendously, wonderful thread this is! I really haven’t laughed this hard in such a long time. Who knew that there were so many witty people gathered in this one place

    But we should really thank the people who are putting these things out. They must be getting an even bigger guffaw than we are.

    Someone is screwing with us guys!

    (Photoshop! Even I could create this glorious mischief with just a few minutes on Photoshop).

    Great entertainment though.

  173. Yeah, OK, maybe it’s a Glambertized version of a Snuggli, meant for nothing more than keeping him warm between digital file uploads! Yeah… yeah, that’s it…. yeah….. YEEah.

  174. Ellie2,

    Can I go on record to say again how much I love this picture? It just keeps on bringing the lolz. I can’t get over it. And I am not in the least bit worried about the album cover. I predict it will be fierce and awesome and beautiful, just like Adam. And if nothing else, it sure won’t be boring. Back to wiping tears of joy and mirth off my cheeks.

    ITA, it’s pure hilarity. And also, FifthHouse, you make some very good points about why is Adam standing when they are working on him still? Doesn’t really make sense unless his sleeping bag cocoon doesn’t allow him to sit down (or whatever is underneath the polar suit).

    I don’t see how the sleeves, cowl are sequined. The shirt underneath, yes.

    I’m thinking the end result will be something none of us could have ever imagined or expected (like we would have never imagined or expected this!), but I think it will be something completely different and it’s part of the roller coaster ride of an Adam fan.

  175. Get a grip people. We don’t know the entire concept of the shot. We can’t just judge the concept to be a success and failure by just 1 pic. Remember 19E is in the business of making money, they are not stupid. They will not allow anyone to ruin everything for Adam. He is a hot commodity and nobody destroys hot commodity – most especially in a recession economy, wherein international sales is needed to augment local sales. As for the make-up artist, he has no right to post any photos on twit. I have handled shoots for local and global adverting clients, it is not allowed to leak photos. Anyway, haters who think Adam will not make it (selling CD) because of this…well, you can have your laugh now. I bet you won’t be laughing come October. LOL! i find it funny that these people can’t resists hitting out on Adam. There is deep seated A****. As for the other Adam fans have a little faith people. Don’t stress yourself about this. I won’t.

    editing: your ott lecturing and fingerwagging earned you a spot in moderation

  176. I bet Adam is laughing, too. It’s not like he wasn’t glammed up for the Zodiac Show. ;-) But if he has another Twitter party, I bet this he will get a zillion questions about this…

    Most.entertaining.thread.ever.

  177. This shot seems to be a pic in between sets. The hairdresser is in the pic with a can of hairspray. Why does everyone think this is going to be the actual picture that will be on the album cover?

    I still like the hair though.

  178. I’m not worried I’m disgusted. This represents everything wrong with society with Adam in the picture. I thought my end of the world post yesterday was ott but theni saw this again. Yknow it’s not that bad if you squint… close one eye…. and then close the other. There. Much better. I hate this other than the outfit because this is the first Adam hair I have HATED and I hate the face too. So much pretty ruined. and his face is waaaay too pale. I like tan Adam but not orange Adam. But I’d rather have irange Adam than this. I’ll be back laterim going to visit my grandpa in the hospital( not too serious-I hope) and I seriously hope we havebetter photo shoot news when I get back. But on a positive note I JUST woke up so I shouldbe able to stay awake 4 the concert.

  179. lol .. only Adam could have a sequined air blanket.

    Heehee!! OMG, it just keeps getting more and more bizarre, doesn’t it? Actually, he’s wearing it backwards. The sequins are on the shirt he’s wearing. The “blanket” should cover his chest and you slip your arms in the sleeves. It’s like a sleeping bag Snuggli. I suspect it was either put on to cover up the costume or because Adam is sleeveless under it, and the place is cold.

    Either way, Jasen Kaplan sure is quiet today. Other than expressing the need to get a good drunk on, tonight. I have a feeling he made a major boo-boo.

  180. Adam hardcore fans :clap_tb: :clap_tb: You guys have to laugh at that picture.I really thought when i got back to MJ’s today Most would of been banned by now.Glad you guys are taking it well it is funny but if your laughing it keeps the real haters out.Haters only win when you let them win.

    I see they used my ideal on this picture wish it was done better

    Perez and Adam combined’ ¦

    I heard tweetville just got enough boose to party all weekend :drunk_tb: :jittery_tb:

  181. Here’s the positive that I’ve taken out of this: Adam’s album cover can be totally and utterly mediocre now, but as long as he’s not wearing the brown-sequined-michelin-outfit and his hair doesn’t look like Jimmy Neutron, we’ll all be completely thrilled. This guy managed to do the impossible and lower expectations. :)

    OMG! Hysterical and the truth!
    I went to Warwick Saint’s page and his photographs are beautiful and sexy! Of course, he’s never had to deal with what concept 19E has???
    Anyway, thanks for the laughs everyone! I am loving this thread, might be my favorite of all time (and I am a huge Adam fan!)

  182. Hmmm, now Warwick Saint, the photographer for the shoot, has deleted all the tweets regarding Adam. Why the clean up?? One thing is for certain, there is always something with Adam that gets people talking-good or bad.

  183. This shot seems to be a pic in between sets. The hairdresser is in the pic with a can of hairspray. Why does everyone think this is going to be the actual picture that will be on the album cover?

    I don’t think anyone is saying that that’s the actual pic .. with that expression and pose .. they’re just discussing the look (ie hairstyle) .. and what he’s wearing … I don’t think any of us think that the hairdresser is going to feature on the actual cover …lol

    This shot seems to be a pic in between sets. The hairdresser is in the pic with a can of hairspray. Why does everyone think this is going to be the actual picture that will be on the album cover?

    Exactly. It’s a pic taken during the setup. Seriously this pic will not be even close to the cover or the inlay photos. Also, Jason said they took hundreds of photos, and we’ve seen at least 2 other outfits, I don’t understand why everyone is flailing over this.

    It’s s funny pic taken with a cellphone that’s all, imo. It does not represent, or even give a hint of the finished product. Hell, we can’t even predict a theme from this picture.

    I for one, am not worried at all about the album images. Looking at the photographer’s work, the man has never taken a bad picture, why assume he’s starting now?

  185. The worst thing any celeb wants is “no reaction”. That just means that they don’t have any “IT” power and people could really care less.

    Besides we’ve already established that the online world and the twitter world is only a bare infinitesimal fractional amount of music lovers and music buyers.

    And, what the hell would we be talking about if we didn’t have this fun and sinfully horrible picture to keep us entertained. Guess we could be talking about the Idol boys playing Chippendales.

  186. This shot seems to be a pic in between sets. The hairdresser is in the pic with a can of hairspray. Why does everyone think this is going to be the actual picture that will be on the album cover?

    Yup. It is between shots, the question is whether that ugly puffy jacket thing is in the real pictures. My guess is it’s just something to keep him warm between set-ups. Or part of some weird special effects thing.

    On the bright side, Adam now joins the ever-growing list of famous puffy things.

  187. I for one am going to wait for actual pictures from the shoot and the actual CD cover before I start rushing to judgements. lol

  188. A few thoughts:

    1. I really doubt that this shot looks anything like what will appear anywhere.

    2. The way it is lit, with the hot light on the left side, it apears to be for a close-up, if anything. And as someone already commented, if you crop this to a head-sholders photo, it isn’t terrible.

    3. With a 12 hour shoot that there should be 4 or 5 different looks from this photoshoot. From the accessory photos they tweeted, looks like we got clues on 3 or 4 different looks:

    – Black and silver spiked outfit

    – “Egyptian” collar

    – Eyepatches with crystals (doesn’t seem to fit with any of the other items)

    – Copper Big Boy

    4. My guess is that we have no idea from the clues what the photos will be like. Just like I don’t think we saw the final Elle mag shot of Adam in that tweet.

    Now that I have gotten over my intial “WTF reaction” to the photo — I actually realize that it’s just more of the wild Adam ride. This one photo “leak” is worth a couple days of online and press buzz. Yes, the photo is aweful but hasn’t just built curiosity about what his album cover shot will look like.

    Has there ever been an Idol album cover photo that people actually got press about 2-1/2 months before the album release? I am really starting to think that Adam is a very good branding and PR strategist — because he started his personal branding campaign during Idol, and has continues to build it in a very definite and directed way.

  189. You know, as much as this picture causes me to keep cackling like a hyena on laughing gas, I would much rather have an Adam album cover like this than something generic and “been there, done that.” It’s ADAM, for shit’s sake. The boy is not going to do the expected thing. That’s why I love him. He’s never afraid to push the envelope and try something that may end up being an epic fail. Having said that, I still say there’s no way this shot (or any shot in this outfit) shows up on the album.

  190. OK!…Now I invision two things that might happen at tonights concert during Adam’s set:
    1. Someone throws a “Michelin Man”, “Gumby”, “Lost In Space–Robot”,
    and “Jimmy Newtron” inspired doll on stage during ‘Life On Mars’.

    2. Rickey dances around his room during Adam’s cell cast set with this above mentioned ‘alien’ doll!!

    LOL!!!

  191. I dismiss — sadly– the theory that this poof jacket is something to keep Adam warm between shoots because how to explain the separate doughnut ring around his neck?

    And I dismiss the theory that this ridiculous photo is bringing out all the Adam haters. Once you get over the initial shock, then the dismay, then the anger and then the disappointment you reach the hilarity stage, and that is bringing nothing but love and mirth and merriment and a much needed bit of humor in this crazy crazy world.
    Let the good times roll (like the rolls of the Michelin jacket). :clap_tb: :clap_tb: :clap_tb:

  192. @LisaE,

    Some of these shots are cool too:

    http://www.warwicksaint.com/photographer/gallery/03

    I also went through his celebrity portfolio and CRAP!! Those are some bangin’ shots ‘“ serious dramatic stunners. I particularly loved the shoots with Adrien Brody, Cindy Crawford and both sessions with Cate Blanchett. I am so not worried now (I really wasn’t before, I didn’t think for a minute this shot would have anything to do with the eventual cover).

    How the polar suit became part of the equation, I don’t know and I really don’t care. I have utter faith that in their 12-hour photo shoot that the photographer, talent (!!!), support staff and location will culminate to an EPIC cover.

    And seriously, could you see Simon greenlighting this in ANY way shape or form? Doubt it.

  193. ITA, it’s pure hilarity. And also, FifthHouse, you make some very good points about why is Adam standing when they are working on him still?

    It actually looks like they are just doing a minor hair adjustment.

    Warwick Saint is a really talented photographer. With 12 hours, apparently a nice budget, some beautiful accessories, a great location and Adam — the result will be really good — maybe even great.

  194. I am really starting to think that Adam is a very good branding and PR strategist

    Well, it certainly calls to mind some famous brands! You could call it ICONIC!!

  195. I see some people are suggesting that this might be a Gareth Pugh design, personally I’m not sure because I haven’t seen him done anything that looks like that. You can see most of his works here where you might see some of his weirder designs (for example the Spring 2007 collection) –
    http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/F2009RTW-PUGH

    I like his 2009/10 Men collection – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ca-HgeZMW0s
    and that’s something Adam should go for (edgy, sexy and stylish) rather than Pugh’s more experimental and adventurous ones. Well, at least for now anyway, he can go for the more outrageous ones once he has a better feel of what might suit him.

    If this is Pugh’s, then he’s probably trying something different and I don’t think this is one of his better effort or idea. It can be a bit hit and miss with these creative people. Here’s an example of his work as worn by Kylie Minogue in her video which worked better – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE8EAqneUbM

    Notice where Lady Gaga got some of her fashion ideas.

  196. :lol_tb: @ maturin!

    I dismiss ‘” sadly’“ the theory that this poof jacket is something to keep Adam warm between shoots because how to explain the separate doughnut ring around his neck?

    Damn, I tried so hard on that one! LOL

    And I dismiss the theory that this ridiculous photo is bringing out all the Adam haters.

    Seriously, anyone who frequents mjs knows this is how we roll on here. Any Idol who does something even mildly amusing gets the jokes. There really haven’t been mean comments, its not like he’s Gokey or McPhee. Heh.

  197. Well, we all know Adam has a lot of tricks up his sleeves.
    Maybe that is why they are so puffy??

    If they did use this picture, I envision it with him wearing a space helmet and standing on Planet Fierce. With a picture of the real, spiky, wild Adam’s reflection in the helmet?

    It could be used to show the visual transformation of the glittery alien from Planet Fierce saga.
    ???

  198. This is Major Tom to ground control
    I’m stepping through the door
    And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
    And the stars look very different today

    PS Defying Gravity, cool space show.

  199. Wow. Who knew something so out of focus, out of context and unintentional could lead to this type of visceral reaction?! Very interesting!

    @IdolThoughts, you likely have no way of knowing this unless you read her concert recap, but @luvadamlambert is 12. She’s extremely articulate and stands her ground, but she, like all of us, get a little caught up in our emotional commitment to Adam.

    @LAL, it’s going to be FINE. This picture is hilarious,but there’s no need to worry. Look at it like you would any of Adam’s previous Halloween shots ‘“ it’s all part of living in a world where we luvadamlambert!

    As I said before, I don’t think this is going to resemble the eventual cover in any way (hair may make an appearance though …?).

  200. Oh Dear Lord. What in the hell have they done to Adam?

    Pilsbury doughboy and Michelin Man are right on target.

    Adam is such a handsome young man, with leanings towards looking totally goth and this is the best they could do? Really? At that awesome looking mansion and this is it???? WTF??

    If they were so hard up for idea’s they could have borrowed some from the movie Twilight or even Phantom of the Opera with all the candelabras lighting up the opera house. (gave it a gothy feeling). That hair is NOT attractive. Adam has such a lovely full head of hair and they pomped it up? Again, WTF?

    I lurve’s Adam an I really hate to say it, but I hate this.

  201. Seriously, anyone who frequents mjs knows this is how we roll on here. Any Idol who does something even mildly amusing gets the jokes. There really haven’t been mean comments, its not like he’s Gokey or McPhee. Heh.

    Exactly. If you can’t handle a little snark or criticism directed at your favorite, you shouldn’t be reading my blog. It’s that simple. I’m not running a fan site here.

    Posters who bitch, complain and lecture will go straight to moderation.

    Seriously, the folks who are complaining need to find a nice puppies-and-rainbows-preach-it-to-the-choir fan forum and make it your home.

    ETA:

    I knew this was coming, but I was really really hoping you wouldn’t go there, MJ ;-)

    It’s not my job to protect Adam. Sorry.

  202. Seriously, anyone who frequents mjs knows this is how we roll on here. Any Idol who does something even mildly amusing gets the jokes. There really haven’t been mean comments, its not like he’s Gokey or McPhee. Heh.

    I’d like to see Gokey pull off this outfit! ;-)

  203. You’d think with all of the stuff we’ve seen him wear on Idol that he would object to wearing something as stupid as this.

    Maybe TPTB’s shackles are tighter than we thought. Then again, who knows what context the picture could be for. The context better be very strong because that is one shitty looking outfit.

  204. Once you get over the initial shock, then the dismay, then the anger and then the disappointment you reach the hilarity stage, and that is bringing nothing but love and mirth and merriment and a much needed bit of humor in this crazy crazy world.

    I am loving this stage!I can’t even remember a thread that’s been so much fun.

  205. Haha. Anytime Adam has me guessing with WTF!!!!, i’m always pleasantly surprised in the end. He could wear a trash bag and he’d still find a way to rock it out. He knows what he’s doin, let the man work.

  206. I dismiss ‘” sadly’“ the theory that this poof jacket is something to keep Adam warm between shoots because how to explain the separate doughnut ring around his neck?

    I think the photographer’s assistant came on his bike, had a puncture, started to repair it and needed somewhere to hang the old inner tube while he was fixing it.

    I agree that if people want to be too overprotective of Adam they should just stick to the “gushy” fansites … blogs are for general discussions and everyone is entitled to post their opinions even if it is snark.

    I’m a massive Adam fan but can’t help being snarky about the photo .. it’s been funny reading the posts here. Adam’s not a one to shy away from snark so I doubt it bothers him .. plus I’ll be buying his CD whatever’s on the front cover .. even if he’s wearing a plaid shirt, a pair of ill fitting jeans and a pair of flip flops.

  207. I haven’t read this thread but I know enough to say…….YUCK!!! What in the heck are they thinking with that picture on the front page. GOOD GOSH Adam….don’t let them do that to you. It’s horrific!!!!!!!!!!!! Your album will be a joke with that on the cover. Even us die hard fans can’t get past that. Horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  208. People thought that that ugly tire-looking thing is supposed to keep Adam WARM? Now THAT’S a laugh.

  209. If you can’t handle a little snark or criticism directed at your favorite, you shouldn’t be reading my blog. It’s that simple. I’m not running a fan site here.
    Well, I guess I belong, as an Adam crazee, I have been LOLzing all day!

  210. I just love him. LOL If this is a joke you can be sure he’s in on it.

    I do love the face & hair though.

    Can’t wait for an explanation of this!

  211. OMG !!!!!!!!! Please don’t let this be true !!!!! I love you Adam but I don’t like this look at all!!!!!!!!

  212. OMG WTF is that?! LOL indeed, were it not so frighteningly, er, sad… and hilarious at the same time?

    Oh man, I hope this turns out well. Guess it’s true, the guy keeps ya guessing!

    I’ve not read the comments yet, I can only imagine. I’ll be back for the endless LOLz when I have some time. This should be goooooood!

    P.S. I still love Adam, but for the first time, I’ll admit I’m a wee bit worried. :-)

  213. “And seriously, could you see Simon greenlighting this in ANY way shape or form? Doubt it.”

    Simon Cowell is not involved with the Idols after they leave the TV show. Cowell doesn’t work with Adam now, unless he’s been added to the ever increasing list of producers involved in this album.

    The only Simon who is involved now is Simon Fuller. Simon Fuller managed the Spice Girls. So yes, I could see Simon Fuller greenlighting this.

  214. This shot is fun and Adam looks so happy in this, he loves to play dress up doesn’t he? :)

    Adam does love playing dress up, but in this picture he looks he’s going ‘FML. How the hell did I get caught wearing this bedazzled elephant carcass as part of a high concept fashion shot.’

    I just hope he did have actual fun the rest of the day with outfits that weren’t totally unflattering, stupid and ridiculous.

    But yeah, this picture is a source of constant lulz.

  215. But now that I laughed and cried . . . and laughed again.

    There are in fact some pretty memorable occasions of using weird, deliberately ugly or body distorting looks for some cool effects in music performance.

    I recall the giant puffy suits in Missy Elliott’s groundbreaking ’90s video “I Can’t Stand the Rain

    And as a young kid I freaked the heck out seeing David Bowie on SNL carried out in some sort of a giant plastic cone and then dancing as a nightmarish puppet.

    I looked for video but there doesn’t seem to be any, although I found a description. Don’t look at the date. I TOLD YOU NOT TO LOOK AT THE DATE. Am old.

    Anyways. There’s always hope.

  216. Lisa….. right on !!!!!

    “Adam is such a handsome young man, with leanings towards looking totally goth and this is the best they could do? Really? At that awesome looking mansion and this is it???? WTF??
    I lurve’s Adam an I really hate to say it, but I hate this.”

    PLEASE DON’T DO THIS ADAM !!!!!!!!!

  217. Did anyone else think this was the latest wax figure at Madame Tussaud’s? Although, they surely would have dressed him better. This is just so HUH????

  218. W. T. F. That is a very scary picture. The hair stood up on the back of my neck. :gulp_ee:

  219. Adam actually looks 8 months pregnant in the pic ‘ ¦ not his belly, but the way the suit is.

    I thought the same thing. I think it supports the opinion that he didn’t realize he was being photographed for all of us to see!!! He’s just letting it all hang out! Like when Cookie gets caught with tummeh…love the tummeh

  220. Any caption ideas for that photo?

    Maybe Adam’s chanting to himself: “I have a recording contract. My fans love me. I have a recording contract. Everything will be OK. I have a recording contract.”

  221. I hope he didnt keep the same hairstyle for the whole day, and they changed up his hair in some pictures.

  222. I thought the same thing. I think it supports the opinion that he didn’t realize he was being photographed for all of us to see!!! He’s just letting it all hang out! Like when Cookie gets caught with tummeh’ ¦love the tummeh

    lol .. there’s no way that’s Adam’s real stomach .. even if he was relaxing and letting it all hang out …. it’s either the way the light is playing on the sequins or the actual suit … I know Adam doesn’t have a washboard stomach but he also doesnt have a stomache like a giant wok or a space hopper …lol

  223. I guess I’m confused – why does anyone think Adam chose this or had any real input into it? I assumed the photographer/stylist on the shoot came up with it. Adam doesn’t even look happy in this photo (which is rather unusual – even when he isn’t out and out grinning, he usually has a rather happy look to him – I think it is part of what draws people to him…)

    I haven’t been involved in this sort of shoot, but my understanding was that they TRY a lot of different looks/styles/poses over the length of the shoot. They could even go through several different makup/hairstyles and definitely various outfits.

    One would assume this was a “look” that was tried, deemed a total failure and they went on to the next idea.

    Maybe the idiot makup guy thought it was OK to post BECAUSE it was a rejected look.

  224. Any caption ideas for that photo?

    Planet Fierce will not be extending my visa if this gets leaked!

  225. Perhaps it’s not for Adam’s CD cover but it’s a new suit for him to wear on tour to protect him from flying dildo’s … armour plated and heavily padded.

    There’s probably a helmet to go with it.

  226. I think Adam will surprise (not) us all by wearing THIS hair in tonight’s concert

    OMG I hope not. I had other things to do tonight but now I’ll be here for the concert just to see what happens with “hairgate”.

  227. Adam actually looks 8 months pregnant in the pic ‘ ¦ not his belly, but the way the suit is.

    Yep, it’s a little alien baby bump! Can you imagine the twisted fanfic that will come from this. Of course it will involve Kris(because it usually does). Kris will gush and be so proud that their little alien bundle of joy has a gumby shaped head. And they will wrap alien baby in a plaid receiving blanket.

    If Adam came out wearing “gumby hair” tonight, twitter would explode!

  228. This is Major Tom to ground control

    Hes told us not to blow it
    Cause he knows its all worthwhile

  229. I would much rather have an Adam album cover like this than something generic and ‘been there, done that.’  It’s ADAM, for shit’s sake. The boy is not going to do the expected thing. That’s why I love him. He’s never afraid to push the envelope and try something that may end up being an epic fail. Having said that, I still say there’s no way this shot (or any shot in this outfit) shows up on the album.

    Totally agree with this! He keeps the ride interesting, that’s for sure!

  230. DEFINITLY a cross between stay putf man on ghostbusters oopma loompa falls in willy wonkas chocolate river…gotta love VFTW…but yea this is really horrific, though i SERIOUSLY doubt that this was used on his cover.

    but the HAIR…SOMEONE has been having a little bit too much fun with Bump-its

  231. Disclaimer: I am a huge Adam Lambert Fan!!!!!!

    But this picture does not represent the Alien from Planet Fierce……More like the Alien from Planet Farce. This is not Lord Gaga….more like Lord Gag. He looks like a white Gumby. I am sure with all the pictures they took this can not be the best of the bunch. So hopefully this was just a JOKE. Because saying he looks like the Michelin Man is being nice….I would say Adam this is Messed-up man. :wacko_tb:

    Now back to the Real music Messiah Adam Lambert….Rolling Stone Magazine acceptance Pic where are you.

  232. So hard to keep up with this thread, so I apologize if this has already been said, but has anyone else seen the tweets from Gokey and Sarver about a “hilarious” twitpic and half expected it would be a link to Adam’s photo shoot pic? That would just be cruel, of course, but it was really the first thought I had!

    From Sarver:

    michaelsarver1One of the funniest things I have ever seen. LMAO!!! http://bit.ly/IXbeq

  233. I haven’t read through this whole thread yet, but I am absolutely dying of laughter. What the heck IS that?! :lol_tb:

    Love this’ ¦.can’t quit watching Kris’ expression.

    WUT? WUT? WUT? LOL Kris, ADAM IS COMING FOR YOU! WATCH OUT! :)

    I could not be less concerned about this. I doubt the actual cover would have leaded out; who knows what this is for? Adam is too smart to go with this. Tho I am becoming partial to the hair. ;-)

  236. Have an online look through all of Adam’s crazy costume photos and tell me if you can find anything that isn’t sleek, fitted or tight? Is he stupid enough to go too far out on a limb at this stage in his career? I’ll bet that he waits until he does a second album. Spikes and leather for now … medieval pincushions for later.

  237. I still maintain this is part of the eighties musical makeover montage for his movie. H.I.M.’s cover of “Walking on Sunshine” is playing with dark perkiness in the background, and any minute now, the Glittery Alien from the Planet Fierce will be launched into outer space society. ;) Prom kings. True love. Kisses over birthday cakes. The like.

    I am so supremely happy they released this photo!!!

    I in no way believe this is what we’ll see on his album. If it were, I wouldn’t care (want the music inside), and it’s kept me beautifully distracted all day long. Lots to read, lots of laughs. Would have been a rough day without it.

    Thank you, Adam! Thank you, makeup guy! Thank you crazy coat! Thank you MJ’s Big Blog!

    :drunk_tb:

  238. It’s just bad lighting…and remember, the camera adds 100 pounds.

    I am laughing so hard my eyes are tearing.

    Just when I stop laughing so hard I’m crying then someone posts the Chippendales vid and I start all over again, then someone posts the River Dance vid with Adam doing a flying split jump and I almost fell off my chair laughing, crying and then the Gossip Candy blog with the WUT? gifs. I don’t know if I can keep laughing without cracking a rib or something! LOL!

    OMG Adam you are priceless without even trying to be! Buckle up fellow Aam fans (and non-fans) this is going to be one wild ride!

  240. Though laughable…this will blow by and be forgotten about in a bit.

    Remember the whole HiFi Recordings hoopla and the Want single..long since forgotten!

  241. The only Simon who is involved now is Simon Fuller. Simon Fuller managed the Spice Girls. So yes, I could see Simon Fuller greenlighting this.

    Is Simon Fuller managing Adam Lambert? He doesn’t manage all Idols, so this is not a stupid question. At the moment, he manages Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, and David Cook. I’m not sure about Jordin. She appears on his web site but I have heard that he no longer manages her. Does he?

  242. OK can not look anymore.

    They turned Adam into a puffy Transformer. They have wheels on his feet too?

  244. Wow Jasen Kaplan has wiped out any and all existence of his tweets about this photoshoot! I think someone got his ass ripped a new one..LOL.

  245. Ok i have the best poll question for tonites concert.What was funnier

    Danny- “scream on”

    Adam- “picture”

  246. Though laughable’ ¦this will blow by and be forgotten about in a bit.

    Yeah! by the way that reminds Summer is almost over, where is the Album “On with the Show” I thought it had a summer release date and summer is almost gone. HIFi may have decided to wait. Especially since “Want” wasn’t wanted after Adam came out against it and we listened and did not buy it.

  247. Ok i have the best poll question for tonites concert.What was funnier

    Danny- ‘scream on’ 

    Adam- ‘picture’ 

    How long til someone splices Danny’s scream into a shot of this picture as a reaction?

    Thats how i came up with it was thinking that.More like putting danny scream on picture in with the adam and perez picture.
    With the caption- O lord please

  250. @pjd,

    I guess I’m confused – why does anyone think Adam chose this or had any real input into it? I assumed the photographer/stylist on the shoot came up with it. Adam doesn’t even look happy in this photo (which is rather unusual – even when he isn’t out and out grinning, he usually has a rather happy look to him – I think it is part of what draws people to him’ ¦)

    I haven’t been involved in this sort of shoot, but my understanding was that they TRY a lot of different looks/styles/poses over the length of the shoot. They could even go through several different makup/hairstyles and definitely various outfits.

    One would assume this was a ‘look’  that was tried, deemed a total failure and they went on to the next idea.

    Maybe the idiot makup guy thought it was OK to post BECAUSE it was a rejected look.

    ^^^ THIS!! Again, it cracks me up how people think Adam is dictating the creative direction. Other than some beforehand dialog and professional collaboration, the model becomes the model and the photographer becomes the photographer. They hired an expert with an extensive resume for a LOOK. This is HIS shoot.

    If Adam was TRULY uncomfortable with something, he could refuse and likely the photographer wouldn’t push him, but there would be a bit of a red flag flying, like, “This guy is getting a first album cover shoot with ME and he’s copping an attitude? Okay …”

    We’ve said it before, Adam shies away from nothing, I have no doubt he’s going to put himself into the very established hands of Warwick Saint and once they had their conversation about the overall look, he will be the consummate professional and suck it up and do whatever he is asked to do. And A-list celebrity like Cate Blanchett, once she agrees to the shoot, defers to the photographer’s vision. They wouldn’t try to dictate it any more than they’d try to dictate the direction of a film. IT’S. NOT. DONE.

    This is part of working in a creative, collaborative industry. You have to trust other people to do their jobs.

  251. How long til someone splices Danny’s scream into a shot of this picture as a reaction?

    Aug 14th, 2009 at 4:44 pm It’s not my job to protect Adam. Sorry.

    mj, you don’t have to protect to protect Adam, he already has an airbag around him. He’s set!

    Hey, maybe we finally figured out why the photographer came up with this concept…it’s safety first!

    First his charity, now he’s trying to show the benefit of (sequined) airbags. That Adam, he’s such a giver.

  253. Adam hardcore fans: You guys have to laugh at that picture.I really thought when i got back to MJ’s today Most would of been banned by now.Glad you guys are taking it well it is funny but if your laughing it keeps the real haters out.Haters only win when you let them win.

    Well…it really is indefensible. :tongue3_tb: The only thing you can do is laugh at it! Last night, I laughed my ass off. This morning, after it broke on a few non-AI sites, I hit my head against my desk a few times. Now, I’m back to laughing. The Gossip Candy comments are hysterical. There’s also a poster at ONTD_AI who keeps adding this pic at the top of every post and for some reason it’s cracking me up. Keeping a sense of humor really does help get through these things. So, I’ll roll with it…

    Compared to Hi-Fi-Gate (smoke coming out of my ears), this is absolutely nothing!

  254. In case of a water landing, Adam Lambert can be used as a flotation device…
    Oh, Adam honey– your inner beauty still shines through.

    But seriously, this thread has made my day!!!!

  255. Adam the frumpy sad alien lands on some planet in this outfit and is immediately arrested by the Intergalactic Fashion Police.

    There is a long Eighties style musical montage of him getting a makeover ala ZZ Top’s ‘Legs’  video, and then he emerges as the Glittery Alien from the Planet Fierce in the ultra-spiky black jacket and butterfly-wing eye gear from one of those shots.

    Everyone dances and the hottest guy in school asks him to the prom. The end. Happily ever after.

    Didn’t John Hughes already make this movie??

    I KID! I Love JH and was broken hearted when he died. He was responsible for some of my favorite movies.

  256. Already been done at ONTD. Along w/ every other hilarious thing you can possibly think of.

    Its the start of the weekend.They only started over there but its all in fun love.Sure adam will take some digs from his idol friends but we know adam can give it back really well.

  257. Adam actually looks 8 months pregnant in the pic ‘ ¦ not his belly, but the way the suit is.

    Oh dear God, please don’t give the Kradam shippers any ideas!!! :wink_wp: Geez, I have to leave for the weekend, but couldn’t resist one last look. For some reason, his arms make me think of the little brother in “A Christmas Story” when his mother had him all dressed in his snowsuit, and he couldn’t lower his arms!

  258. LOL at the Christmas Story reference. Now I’m picturing him on his back, flailing in the snow.

    We can’t see his hands. He’s in a gothic castle. Perhaps he’s Edward Tire-arms Scissorhands.

    We know he glitters in the sun. So maybe he’s Edward Tire-arms Scissorhands Cullen!

    @adamlambert: Dude, en’ tire’ ment is not sexy

    :lol_tb: Clever!!!!!!!

  260. It kind of reminds me of something an astronaut would wear…..a space suit. And yeah, it’s ugly!

  261. So, Perez has pulled the picture and his post from his site and from CocoPerez? Hmmm’ ¦.

    out of the goodness of his loving heart or did someone make him take it down? Warwick and Jasen have removed all Adam mentions from their tweets. Things that make you go hmmmmm

  262. Hmmm. The last time this happened was when Perez had been scorned by Adam, posted a premature statement about “Want” and then had to get rid of it fast in order to retract and clarify. Let’s see now … didn’t Adam kinda dis Perez yesterday?

    Today’s site jokes are damn fine.

  263. If they did use this picture, I envision it with him wearing a space helmet and standing on Planet Fierce. With a picture of the real, spiky, wild Adam’s reflection in the helmet?

    this could happen. Or something weird and sci fi, but probably no face obscuring helmet. Or some Gulliver’s Travels photoshopping. Or this just an inset in something they’re going to montage together to put as some added attraction on the fold out liner notes inside the CD to encourage hard copy purchase.

    Just IMHO, all those Warwick Saint existing shots in his gallery are done and over already. Seen it. (Saw it decades ago.) There is nothing unique, or compelling, or envelope pushing about them. YMMV, of course, and some people here, with good taste, like them. And clearly GaGa is huge success. But she’s got to already be seeking her next thing and look.

    But, IMHO, those pics could be anyone. You could interchange the celebrities in all of them with an unknown model. You can neon glow anyone. The hardest thing is to be ahead of the game. And to be ahead of the game while expressing something unique about the subject. My worry was the cover would be “anyone”, and not something new and interestingly reflecting Adam. And dated, over, done GaGa imitation.

    Now of course this poufy mess brownage doesn’t express Adam. But the hair surprised me. And I take that as a very good sign. Sure it could be the Shoney’s Big Boy Dairy Queen cone top. But I haven’t seen it on a human looking so interesting. Some people may hate it, but at least it’s new and different. And shows his face. And Adam’s face is beautiful here. So as lunatic and ridiculous as this outfit is, it gives some hope that maybe it won’t just be generic could be anyone shots from the day’s work.

    And, best of all, for the fans, now we’ll all be interested to see what they did with the moufy suit shot. Plus, it gives them one to “throw away”. Since we’ve seen and mocked this, they could turn it into something interesting, release it saying they’re not using it, but there will be special hard copy CD only stuff,and get the fans more frothed and ready to buy the hard copy.

  264. Didn’t John Hughes already make this movie??

    Brother From Another Planet by Sayles comes to mind as well.

  265. I kind of like the hair. The jacket/blanket not so much. He looks so serious… I wonder what he is thinking.

  266. I was horrified when I got my first view of this picture, but this thread has made me laugh.

    Adam will survive this. I bet the other idols are having a lot of fun, at Adam’s expense, with this picture.

    LOL at the Christmas Story reference. Now I’m picturing him on his back, flailing in the snow.

    We can’t see his hands. He’s in a gothic castle. Perhaps he’s Edward Tire-arms Scissorhands.

  267. Would be fun to hear what Neil thinks of Adam’s hmmmm new look?.

  268. So, Perez has pulled the picture and his post from his site and from CocoPerez? Hmmm’ ¦.

    Good, but doesn’t help much. Once it is out on the internetz, it is out on the internetz. But once again it confirms that Gaga is doing something with Adam…

    At least Adam’s FACE looks beautiful in that picture.

    The outfit, though… I can’t decide whether this or Lady Gaga’s frog outfit is worse aesthetically. Career wise this is definitely worse, since he isn’t established yet…

    Once again though.

    Thank you, my expectations are effectively lowered.

    Poor bb Adam, will send him lots of love in my thoughts.

    WoW that is some complement coming from Brian May! Can’t wait to hear it! Pretty awesome considering he played next to one of the greatest rock vocalists of all time!

    Maybe the balloon outfit is to protect him from the end of the world in 2012?

  270. Brother From Another Planet by Sayles comes to mind as well.

    Replace that with Blubber, and we’re good to go

  271. Maybe this is his new M&G wear. To save him from the crazies. You know, like one of those protective suits the police wear while training the attack dogs.

    I saw this posted on another site so funny.

  272. Here’s another opportunity for a RS cover so that Adam can come out about that picture.

  273. OMG…Thank you tiger92. There is nothing better than an approval by Brian May. Queen forever.

  274. I think it looks a bit like a brown turtoise shell inhabited by Adam. I do think he looks stunning and I like the hair.

  275. Interesting…why would Perez pull the pic without explanation. He usually dishes about stuff like that. Interesting…

    Aug 14th, 2009 at 6:17 pm
    Still think it’s photoshop.

    NewFan.. now that I read you post… I think it’s really possible a photoshop. The hair doesn’t match the Michellin costume and the hair goes with that Black Jacket that leaked by the same guy. He got busted leaking all this things. So take people attention away from the real costum (black jacket), Warwick probably did this photoshop. He can do it smoothly so it doesn’t look like a photshop. I’m pretty sure Adam know about it and now he’s also laughing so loud now knowing that he makes people crazy once again… :lol_tb:

  277. I literally squeed like a little girl when I saw the headline. Imagine my dismay when I saw the pic. Ah man, I got Adam roll’d.

  278. @IdolThoughts, you likely have no way of knowing this unless you read her concert recap, but @luvadamlambert is 12. She’s extremely articulate and stands her ground, but she, like all of us, get a little caught up in our emotional commitment to Adam.

    Say what????Don’t think so, she has a commitment to Anoop, that’s all.

  279. Wow that’s some blog post by Brian May … I want to hear that track NOW!!!!! .

    Okay, this makes up for the misbegotten photo at the top of this thread! If Brian May is impressed, then that 2012 recording must be good. Looking forward to hearing it — sounds like a great first step for Adam.

  281. Chipmunk that’s funny.. the gossipcandy links… but what is HH? I know it’s for Adam.. but what’s HH mean?

  282. I hope Adam gets his sorry butt on his Twitter and Twats about this stupid picture. Adam you can possibly think that this picture should be shown and made such fun of. Come on, get with it and splain PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

  283. Honestly, have folks really looked at Warwick Saint’s photography? I think he’s great — in a really commercial-photography kind of way! Not out there or nuts or anything, so he isn’t going to do anything crazy. If you haven’t, look on the web site under the various categories. When you click a category, a first photo comes up, and if you continue to click, more in that category appear. His stuff is gorgeous, beautifully expressive, really captures the people, to me, while staying completely within the bounds of an advertising-photography kind of look, which I’m sure they want! The music stuff is stunning, and shows him to have a big range — he’s done nice stuff for a whole bunch of people and he doesn’t seem to be the kind to let his own ego take over the picture at all, as you might fear if you took that costume too seriously.

    He isn’t going to suddenly forget all that stuff when he’s hired by RCA to work with somebody who’s got as much attention — and already had a very cool Matthew Rolston cover that he has to compete with — as Adam. I’m sure he tried to do a very good job, and show a recognizable Adam. He really seems to like putting facial expressions on film. That’s what he seems to do with everybody else he’s photographed, and I don’t see why this would be different.

    Doubt he will say anything. The pic and all tweets from the make-up guy and the photographer have all been deleted and so has Perez Hilton’s post with pic. This is an RCA photo shoot for his album, Adam did what he was told to do. He did not post this picture.

  287. The weather on Planet Fierce must be very, very cold!!!!
    I love it! Such a multi-functional jacket!

  288. @lucy, ITA and @FifthHouse, I have mad respect for your insight and I know you have far more experience with Warwick than I do, but a gorgeous shot is a gorgeous shot, whether the composition has been done to death or not.

    I hope WS isn’t trying to break out into a whole new look using Adam as his guinea pig; or if he does, he can pony up something better than this situation.

    All I’ve got to say: Guys, you have a pretty subject, in a pretty location and a great photographer, we don’t need to do some new avant garde art form, let’s just get a fabulous, compelling shot that will STUN people who live on Mars and have never heard of Adam Lambert as they casually walk be the WalMart CD aisle.

    And the Brian May shout out made my day (as the DDD list did the last two days!). Adam, you sure keep things interesting.

  289. Okay, I just went to Warwick Saint’s website. The guy is incapable of taking a bad picture, so I am sure there is a method to his madness. Looking at the picture again, does anyone else think this MIGHT just be a futuristic spider-type costume? Maybe it was meant to be seen with him crawling or something, just a though…. or it’s just a sucky outfit, lol.

    Anyhoo- My caption for the photo contest?

    BRIAN MAY LOVES ME. YOUR ARGUMENT IS INVALID.

  290. Astronaut Adam is having fun with dressing up and having fun with his fans.
    There is probably something amazing at the end of this tunnel.
    Crossing fingers !

    Brian May , sir, you are great ! I guess anyone who says great things about Adam becomes superlative in our book. I have to say ” Our” as my family is so addicted now to Adam .

  291. Tiger92

    I think I love you. How do you keep finding just the kind of thing that I really want to read? The DDD Music Forum that you told us about yesterday is just too good! I scoured it. Fascinating, mostly analytical, stuff about every genre of music (except opera) As you said …

    they placed Adam as #2 out of 100 Most Technically Skilled Rock Vocalists (Freddie Mercury is #3) and, they also, unanimously, recognized him as #1 for Best Live Rock Vocal Performance (for Heaven on their Minds/Jesus Christ Superstar).

    http://forums.nutsie.com/viewtopic.php?t=18672
    http://forums.nutsie.com/viewtopic.php?t=66801

    And now you find Brian May’s words of praise as well.

    These dudes really do not care what he’s wearing! So, even if Adam is having an exceptionally bad fashion day, it doesn’t matter to the people who have an exceptional ear for music. It puts the brown Michelin tire monstrosity into perspective. (Except that I still think it’s Photoshop)

    So, Tiger92 … are you also M_ _ _ _ ?

  292. #Guess who’s sick of people accusing him of doing things he didn’t do. Guess who’s sick of being attacked. I am.#31 minutes ago from UberTwitter

    Adam fans should read some stories about Claymates’ ¦.

    This guy should learn a little something we like to call the internet. He was clearly thrilled by doing tons of Tweeting and getting tons of responses and positive reinforcement. So he kept on doing it. He then Tweeted a picture he said he himself said he didn’t have the right to, as he wasn’t the “photog.” But he did and got negative reaction to the picture he Tweeted. A picture that got a NY Post article about it, got on various websites, this one included, to massive amounts of scorn and ridicule for a client he was working with. And all for a picture that we either wouldn’t have seen, it probably would never have made the cut, or been seen in the finished product in a different way, if not for this guy. And then he attempted to delete all his pics. Well that’s not the way it works. So yeah, he acted unprofessionally and opened up someone he worked with to negative publicity. Eh. That’s no the fans fault. He didn’t have to Tweet that picture. Just because fans ask for things? Doesn’t mean you should do it.

    So yeah, don’t feel that this is a case of people attacking someone for no reason. Guy created a reason and acted unprofessionally, as far as I’m concerned.

  293. BTW, I thought the makeup guy’s tweets about having a crush on Adam (or thinking he’s hot or whatever) were also extremely unprofessional. It’s a working relationship. Get a grip.

  294. let’s just get a fabulous, compelling shot that will STUN people who live on Mars and have never heard of Adam Lambert as they casually walk be the WalMart CD aisle.

    THIS. You said it so well. :)

  295. I agree that Twittering Make-Up Guy acted very unprofessionally in posting that picture, but I have a feeling that he got some really really ugly tweets — uglier than that jacket — in response. Probably some that really cross the line, despite the fact that he opened himself up to ridicule.

    I didn’t know the NY Post had covered this. Despite that, I doubt this picture has really made much of an impression, if any, outside the Adam-nets. When Adam’s CD comes out, no one will remember the Michelin Man suit.

    Exciting to hear Brian May’s view on Adam’s soundtrack song.

  296. Oh heck, I think people should lighten up. I thought it was hilarious, and I’m a rabid Adam fan. I don’t think he was unprofessional at all, although I’d like to hear Adam’s take on it. But I have to say I hate Twitter for that reason, because while it’s so much fun that a photog can share instantaneously, it’s also sad that people can react in such mean-spirited ways about it. The Elle photographer tweeted with us and it was so cool. I’m afraid this backlash is going to ruin it for fans in the future. Everyone will be afraid to share. Too bad.

  299. “they placed Adam as #2 out of 100 Most Technically Skilled Rock Vocalists (Freddie Mercury is #3) and, they also, unanimously, recognized him as #1 for Best Live Rock Vocal Performance (for Heaven on their Minds/Jesus Christ Superstar).

    @NewFan – thanks for the link. I read this the other day and now understand why professional are saying his is technically skilled. Adam is really good. AM happy for BM’s comment. Read it earlier in a different site and wow! It made my day. :-)

  300. The Elle photographer tweeted with us and it was so cool. I’m afraid this backlash is going to ruin it for fans in the future. Everyone will be afraid to share. Too bad.

    The difference is that the Elle Photoshoot Creative Director tweeted the Elle picture. Not a make-up artist who had no authorization to do so. I think he really acted unprofessionally and if I was setting up a photo shoot, I’d think twice about hiring him or at least make him sign some sort of confidentiality agreement. What I wouldn’t do?? Tweet him now with insults.

  301. Not saying that sequined puffer jackets will definitely be a big trend for winter 2010, but

    Big trends for fall 2009 that Adam wore 4-6 months ago on the show and tour:

    1. leather biker jackets, preferably studded/embellished
    2. bleached out jeans
    3. denim vests, preferably studded
    4. denim on denim
    5. sharp shouldered jackets
    6. biker boots

  302. Hehe, hilarious indeed. But no worries guys, since months ago, we should have learned to expect anything from Adam.

    I don’t believe that the outfit has any potential to be a part of an album cover, but, who knows? We are missing the whole context here. But if it is, I’m sure that it will be great. As someone mentioned, Adam is a brand, they would not dare to get this type of reaction with the finished product.

    I still believe it’s only a joke.

    BTW, about Brian May, to get those words from the man who played for years with Freddie Mercury, what a compliment :)!

    Hawt. I’d hit it!

    …but he wouldn’t feel it! :)

  304. So, Tiger92 ‘ ¦ are you also M_ _ _ _ ?

    NewFan: Nope, sorry. I only belong to one other board and I’ve only posted over there once.

  305. Drat! Wrong again! I thought I had you pegged as a new member at the DDD site; one who supplies them with new concert videos from all the tour stops. Because, you see, I know that you could do that … and because it would have explained your great information access. And …Oh well. So much for my theories. I’ll try to bake the next one more thoroughly.

  306. I am hoping he is getting ready to vist us up here in Montana this winter. Very style forward……..

  307. Love this’ ¦.can’t quit watching Kris’ expression

    I know that I am really tired and feel like I have been hit by a truck….but I can’t see Kris’ reaction??
