Adam Lambert, Allison Iraheta At The Vevo Launch in NYC

Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta attended the VEVO music video portal launch party in New York City Thursday night (December 8).   Adam performed “Whataya Want From Me” for the crowd, filled with industry peeps and A-list musicians and performers.

“It’s like the Grammy’s, ” tweeted Billboard editor, Bill Werde, from the party, “with the whole industry in one room.”

Clive Davis, Jimmy Iovine and Tommy Mattola were a few of the music execs in attendance, plus a slew of stars including, Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crowe, Ciara, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, 50 Cent, Elvis Costello, John Mayer, and Taylor Swift, just to name a few. U2’s Bono gave the opening address.

  1. Shit, that’s one hell of a guest list. Wow! I wonder were he and Allison pinching themselves wondering what they were doing exactly a year ago today!

  2. Is this going to be like a new MTV or something. I lot of heavy hitters. Seems like something they think will be big. Anyone can give a summery of what VEVO actually is and the importance of it. (being that the A-list of music celebs where there) This may just be the one silver lining in what is in the works for Adam. Hopefully

  3. I get the impression this is a notch or two above hosting or performing at a Jingle Ball?

    Vevo will have a huge amount of video content at launch, as its owners control more than 80 percent of all music videos created. YouTube provides backend management for the videos and will also drive viewers to the new destination site.

    The site will get rid of duplicate and low-quality uploads that currently plague YouTube, redirecting to the official highest-quality recording studio version on Vevo. High-definition videos are coming early next year, and synchronized lyrics are posted for as many videos as possible. Vevo videos are embeddable, though there doesn’t seem to be anyway for users to participate or mash them up beyond leaving a comment.

    The company has future plans to make its videos available not just online, but on mobile and connected devices. ‘It’s not about building a destination site, it’s about building an experience,’  Caraeff said. ‘It’s about putting out the best experience wherever people are.’ 

  5. WOW this is an A-list party

    @jodyg: That was insane! Bono, Mariah Carey, Ricky Martin, Taylor Swift and Adam Lambert all within 10 minutes #Vevo

  6. yowzaaaa!!!! mr. lambert and his guyliner on the loose!!!! maybe the bags have gotten worse (with all his gigs) and he decided to cover them up with … eyeliner…

  7. He looks amazing in the performance shots, glam make-up in full force.

  8. yowzaaaa!!!! mr. lambert and his guyliner on the loose!!!! maybe the bags have gotten worse (with all his gigs) and he decided to cover them up with ‘ ¦ eyeliner’ ¦

    I like it. It reminds me of his stage make-up from the Idol tour. It’s something different than just plain black. I wish he’d bring back the blue streaks in his hair too.

    Trying to figure out who all performed. I know Adam and GaGa, but someone mentioned Mariah Carey too. Haven’t seen pics yet.

  9. They are so cuuuuteeee….. Sorry if I already posted. I seem to say the same thing over and over.

  10. Awesome for Adam and Allison.

    Note to Jive stylists: Please keep Allison out of the rock version of Jordin Spark’s poofy skirts.

  11. Held at Skylight Studio in New York City, the star-studded bash was headed by none other than Rihanna and Adam Lambert.

    The bad girl and bad boy of pop music were on hand to rub elbows with key executives and advertising partners amidst the official launch of the online music video service.

  12. Where was Kris? Wow that is some awesome company to keep. I would be starstruck.

  13. I like Allison’s smile. It’s realll… Adam is doing the fake “purse my lips smile” … definitely appropriate for some pics but not when Alli is being genuine.

    Ohh…. and she is rockin the black nail polish….

  14. Where was Kris? Wow that is some awesome company to keep. I would be starstruck.

    Kris has to fly back to LA to do SYTYCD tomorrow.

  15. Trying to figure out who all performed. I know Adam and GaGa, but someone mentioned Mariah Carey too. Haven’t seen pics yet.

    The only pics of performances I’ve seen so far are of Adam or Lady Gaga. Are they the only two who performed?
    That’s all I can find.

  16. The “Making of the Commercial” video is so cute. Can’t wait to see the actual commercial! The poodle with the pink mohawk and Adam’s shiny shirt are my favorites. Too bad the budget doesn’t allow for a video for each song. Imagine the videos for IIHY, Strut, Music Again, Sleepwalker, and Fever. These need to happen!!

    Also, mmm, champagne….

  17. This is great for Adam and I bet he sang well. It’s like a do over of the AMA’s for his peers. I wish Allison could have performed. I hope she had a chance to talk to Cheryl Crow, as I kind of see her going in that direction. I think Cheryl could be a good mentor for her.

  18. Adam and Lady Gaga were the only performers on the party, Mariah presented her new video. There ´s a lot of pictures at Getty images, you can search Vevo there, there ´s also pics with Adam and his band. It was cool to see Alli and Adam in such an A-list party yay!

  19. Re: the making of the commercial video- Adam was way too tall to jump on that bed, Mr. Director-man. And is that Tommy and Monte on the bed at the end along with those cute girls?

  20. I can’t wait to see the commercial. Should be hilarious.

    I’m not sure why so many people are freaking out about the makeup. It was PERFORMANCE MAKEUP, so when the light hit Adam, everything looked really pretty. BB knew what he was doing, don’t worry.

    DAMN, that party was A-list. I hope there’s a performance video coming.

  21. Allison looks fantastic!

    Hopefully her video will be getting some visibility real soon.

  22. Proud of Adam to be there amongh the A-listers, along with little sister Allison….and so happy for him he gets to perform and be considered as one of the headliners…. The band pics are also cool, way too cool!

    Thanks MJ for posting this…this is definitely big AI news!

  23. Holy crap Justin Timberlake in the same room as Adam. I wonder if they met and if Adam went all fanboi on him lololol.

    Maybe Justin went all fanboy on Adam… You could happen. ;-)

  25. Reports say that they played the full FYE video before Adam came on to do his song. I know it’s not Adam’s single, but it is an awesome video!

  26. “I’m not sure why so many people are freaking out about the makeup. It was PERFORMANCE MAKEUP, so when the light hit Adam, everything looked really pretty. BB knew what he was doing, don’t worry.”

    Oops. I’m sorry, I guess I did quite mock Mr. Lambert with my last post. I was just humoring with myself =). I forgot to add that when you put it into context, that amount of make up fits the puzzle. Haha, I’m contradicting myself. Need some sleep… I’m not making sense anymore…

    BTW, I’m by all means, a fan of Mr. Lambert, the man, the singer, the alien…

  27. From What I am reading they think that this VEVO may actually save the music industry. An Adam and Allison are in at the beginning. That is so frigging awesome. An Adam is even doing a commercial for it.

  28. ‘It’s like the Grammy’s,’  tweeted Billboard editor, Bill Werde, from the party, ‘with the whole industry in one room.’ 

    I also like this guote by the Billboard Editor. I hope the industry remembers Adam and Allison when next years nominations come around. Charm them Adam and Allison :mrgreen:

  29. From What I am reading they think that this VEVO may actually save the music industry. An Adam and Allison are in at the beginning. That is so frigging awesome. An Adam is even doing a commercial for it.

    I think it’s a supposedly enhanced version of youtube. I’m not very confident about the business idea. But the event was GOOD for Adam and Allison nevertheless.

  30. ” BTW, I’m by all means, a fan of Mr. Lambert, the man, the singer, the alien’ ¦ ”

    LOL! Don’t we all?…
    I need video of Adam performing… Please MJ?

  31. The “suits” behind VEVO are really big in the industry and they chose Adam to perform. WOO HOO!

  32. Doesn’t SYTYCD do their rehearsals for Wednesday’s show on Tuesday or is that just for the group dance?

  33. Allison looks great!!

    Hard to believe that that booming voice comes out of such a cute girl!!

    go get em Alli!!

  34. OK, just the briefest and shallowest of comments: in the VEVO video, are those the stripey trousers from rock week, Slow Ride, on idol? Wow, he’s lost weight, they are getting baggy on him now! Not quite so, um, figure-enhancing shall we say!! :-) Careful Adam, don’t get too thin.

  35. Oops. I’m sorry, I guess I did quite mock Mr. Lambert with my last post. I was just humoring with myself =). I forgot to add that when you put it into context, that amount of make up fits the puzzle. Haha, I’m contradicting myself. Need some sleep’ ¦ I’m not making sense anymore’ ¦

    BTW, I’m by all means, a fan of Mr. Lambert, the man, the singer, the alien’ ¦

    Don’t apologize; it’s fine :) I just wanted people to realize that the makeup was for the performance, not to freak people out on purpose or something :)

    And I could use some sleep myself! It’s close to 3 a.m. and I’m still doing homework.

    Anyway, I wonder how Adam got to perform at this party. Was he chosen, or was there some sort of agreement? If he was chosen, that’s AWESOME. I’m not trying to say it’s going to happen or anything, but maybe (just maybe?) he could perform at the Grammys after this…

  36. I’m not going to name names, but “an” & “and” are not the same words and do not mean the same thing.

    Ok, I put my red pencil down.
    Allison Iraheta attending is what thrills me. She is still the “dark horse” of AI season 8, and I truly believe that she has the potential to be the real break out star. 31K+ on her debut is great. I wonder if she will build slowly but steadily (provided she gets on radio) the way Jordin did and end up with a sweet career. I’m pulling for her.

    Adam is Adam. He will either live up to the media and become a superstar, or end up as a successful pop star who at least sells well. I’m sure he’s here to stay but I just don’t know if he’ll be big or super big. I wish they would tighten up his branding. This is one thing David Cook has benefited from, besides the talent. His branding has been really consistant: rocker, sports lover, philanthroper. He may not kill in CHR but he’s in for the long haul and although he’s full of surprises, you kind of know what you get with him. He’s reliable.

  37. Adam, here’s a word for you when you put on eyeliner: MODERATION! :P.

    Anyway, I can not be the only one who noticed that he’s gotten slimmer since the Idol tour. It was especially noticeable in some of the earlier shows when he wore the sleeveless shirt and I was like “ugh his arms are fat”, then later on in the tour I was like “hey his arms aren’t fat”. And he doesn’t have as much cheek fat as he used to have. Good job, Adam! Although if he didn’t do anything and I’m just stupid, then this would be kinda awkward.

    Also yay for Allison!

  38. I am sure Adam got this gig since RCA belongs to Sony who seems to be behind Vevo. Sounds like a great gig and it would be awsome if they could put up videos of him and Gaga performing…

  39. Although if he didn’t do anything and I’m just stupid, then this would be kinda awkward.

    No need for awkwardness, Adam has lost weight from the end of the show (where he gained weight from where he was at the beginning of the show) and he’s even lost weight from the end of the tour. Guys are hard to guage for me and the whole weight thing, I mean I would know guys that were an inch taller than me, whipcord thin/muscular, and still outweighed me by like 50 pounds. So moral of the story, no idea of guys and their weight, but I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that Adam lost at least 20 pounds from the end of the tour, much less all the weight he lost after the end of Idol before/during the tour. Boy is back to his more normal WeHo/Citizen Vein weight. Well plus if he had the flu recently, might have lost a few pounds there as well. I know I do.

    Anyhew, I am not a fan of his heavier on-stage make-up, but that’s just what it is, meant to be seen from distance. That being said, would have liked a skoosh less even before then, but it isn’t that bad. FLOVE his coat though. Do want. And I even like his Heat Miser Dragonball Z hair. It’s an homage to stop motion animation and anime all at once, so win-win. I like his complicated sweater, it’s cute and is appropriate. Not sure about the pants, other than they are ombr and just as a general rule, ombr rocks. But I love the lack of real colour. I love black and greys and all for the wearing of much of them.

  40. Scott, pass the red pencil please. I believe the word you are looking for is philanthropist. Not philanthroper.

    LOL! Touche!

  41. By the way, is Adam still going to sing the national anthem at that Steven Spielberg thing? Isn’t that in LA on Wednesday night? And then he’s back in NY on Friday for the jingle ball? And Larry King Live is on Thursday? Is that in LA or NY? I seem to have a lot of questions…

    Anyway, that’s a lot of flying back and forth :)

  42. Allison looks so much like a rocker! I love her attitude. Adam looks amazing! He always stands out in a crowd. Such a great opportunity for him and the band.

  43. Love LOVE love Adam’s look at this event. Makeup, hair, clothes – all edgy-very cool and current.

    There is no one out there right now on the guy side of things who is bringing this sort of unique sensibility. Is glamtastic indeed. And the fact that he can also SING HIS FACE OFF is just the big old cherry on top of a very delicious package.

    Takes balls of steel to have everything that has been thrown at him these past few weeks and keep just being who you are – without apologies. Just awesome.

  45. I am also now an Adam Lambert fan after tonight’s performance at VEVO… Who knew! http://tweetphoto.com/6093660

    Tweet from Vanessa FLynn – apparently with a PR firm Harrison&Shriftman. I hope others at the event shared the same opinion. HOw I wish they would post a video. Regardless, it must have been an amazing opportunity for Adam and Allison to rub elbows with a huge number of industry legends. What a crazy week for Adam! Love it!

  46. Love LOVE love Adam’s look at this event. Makeup, hair, clothes ‘“ all edgy-very cool and current.

    AMEN!!
    I saw all these photos and nearly swooned for his fabulousity…
    “Excessive makeup”????
    Hello?? This is Adam Lambert!!! You’d better resign to his love of make-up if you don’t want to be perpetually frustrated, lol!
    The promo video fore Vevo is especially yummy… that sparkley shirt with that amazing make-up… damn that guy’s delicious!
    When I was 8 years old I saw Labrynth and fell completely in love with David Bowie.
    Now I see Adam and he has the exact same affect…

  47. Adam, why so MUCH makeup? Geesh. Just TOO much dude. You looked awesome on CBS but this was closer to Twisted Sister.

    STOP!

    Some makeup is cool but the INCH THICK BASE and lipstick? That’s just in bad taste and would be if a woman wore it. Also, note – Adam, that thick base makes your skins problems STAND OUT, it doesn’t hide them.

    Just like the rest of us, doing something just because the idea pops into your head doesn’t make it a good idea or “art”.

  48. Adam’s FYE video is on ‘power rotation’  on MTV.

    Oh wow, the FYE is going straight into power rotation as a new add, awesome. I wish MTV was more relevant these days, but still it’s really nice to see. I totally love that video.

    Here’s the source if anyone’s interested: http://www.fmqb.com/article.asp?id=786247

  49. Well I thought Adam looked like hell last night and he looks the same this morning. Too much eye makeup, too much blush and he looks extremely tired. Not a good combination. Hopefully he gets some rest and scrubs his face so he looks more like his fabulous self at the Spielberg event tonight.

  50. LOVE Adam’s outfit and makeup here. He looks great.
    very happy he got some exposure to the big guns in the industry.

    (And yes, the striped pants look like the ones from Slow Ride)

  51. This is great…

    Longineu Vevo was awesome!!! Gotta get some rest now… Back to LALaland!!! G’night Outlaws!!!! http://twitpic.com/srpe3

    Longineu is really loving his new glamfan following. Now we need to see a rub-a-dub-dub Lambert in the tub pic :-)

  52. I get the impression this is a notch or two above hosting or performing at a Jingle Ball?

    Oh, this is certainly better than being a last-minute addition to host Jingle Ball.

    Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga perform at Jingle Balls too, so I don’t know if you can call that “unprestigious”. The concert goers are the ones who will be buying the music, not record execs.

  53. Now this seems like a really cool, really prestigious gig. So was this in NY, and he flies back to LA today?

    I would love to get video, but I guess that probably isn’t going to happen.

    Edited because it is also awesome to see Allison there! She is going to be fine—she is young and talented. I think Jive will give her as much time as she needs.

  54. Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga perform at Jingle Balls too, so I don’t know if you can call that ‘unprestigious’ . The concert goers are the ones who will be buying the music, not record execs.

    The Jingle Balls are a necessary evil, if you want your song played on the radio. And, from what I can tell by Kris having his song in the Top 40, and Adam’s WWFM making significant strides on the spin front – I think they’re working.

    I don’t know a whole lot about how to make it in the music business, but there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of “either/or” to me. Seems like you have to try and kind of be everywhere on all of the different mediums as much as you can.

    This looks like it was one hell of a party. Must have been pretty awesome to hang with the industry A-listers all night. And of course, Allison looks adorable.

    Adam’s been eating properly, he’s eating Freshology. I saw him with the bag at AMA rehearsals.

    Love the stage makeup AND the vertical hair.

  56. What a Win-Win appearance/performance for Adam… It is amazing that the negative could be spun into this….but peeps always find a way! :)

    Also…this may be the best I have ever seen Allison look…Soooo pretty and cool..Quit the young lady!

    Nah, he probably won’t wash it off and just perform at the ADL tonight in the same look, since he only has that ONE style and walks around in stage makeup 24/7.

  58. OMG My daughter fell in love with Bowie at age 8 after seeing Labrinth too! She just turned 9 and used her bday money on Bowie and Adam music! (posting from my phone so I cant quote.)

  59. Love the outfit, the hair, the eye makeup, the nail polish, and the overall look. That’s a rising star peeps! Adam looks ok too :-).

    Really??? Wow, I’m kinda moved by that… It’s an awsome movie, isn’t it? And Bowie is so amazing in it. I remember as a little girl looking at him and thinking he was the most beautiful man I’ve ever seen, and I couldn’t understand why Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) didn’t give in to his charms (remember when he’s trying to “seduce” her…).
    It’s so funny that now that I think of it- my two “idols” when I was 8 were Michael Jackson and David Bowie…
    Hmmm… I wonder what Adam has in common with those two…?

    In a futile attempt to remind people that Allison was also there ;)

    More pictures of Allison here: http://bit.ly/4t9gI8

    Not futile…she looks gorgeous & adorable, love how they’re stylin her. That fab hair! I know Miley Cyrus is rolling in so much money and living her own particular life that she doesn’t even need to care how she looks, BUT what a classy contrast Ali is.

  62. Adam looked awesome last night. Love his outfit. He was dressed to perform and his make up was wonderful. This is make up for stage, and people should get used to it or just forget about AL (or only listen to him). This was another great opportunity for him to sing on the same stage with Lady GaGa and to be around the industry people.

    Nice to see that Allison attended the event.

    Btw, TIME PICKS MAD WORLD #10 Song of 2009

    http://timetop10songsof2009-madworldno.10/

    And also “Whatya Want From Me” is #2 on the 9 at 9 countdown on Z100.

  63. How funny was it when Adam had to jump on the bed and touch the ceiling so he wouldnt hit his head like the person before him did, that guy just jumped with no problem. I didnt mind Adams eye makeup, but not to sure about the heat meiser hair. Cant wait to see the video.
    But how weird did JT look, almost didnt reconize him, looked like an old man.
    And how wrong was it to have a picture of Taylor Swift and Marhra Carey standing next to each other in their low cut black dresses, things that make you want to say Hummmm!!!!!

  64. In a futile attempt to remind people that Allison was also there ;)

    More pictures of Allison here: http://bit.ly/4t9gI8

    Thank you for the link. I saw some pictures of her at the event last night before I had to get to studying for a final exam. (now I should probably get back to that)

    But I didn’t see all of those pictures. All are so cute, ’cause Allison is so cute and pretty. ;p

    I love her smile.

    That dress is pretty awesome too. At first I thought it was just a faded black until I saw the bigger pictures, but it looks like it’s somewhat pink-ish/fuchsia. Very pretty.

    ETA: Ah, didn’t mention that Adam looked nice there too. Of course he doesn’t need to wear all that eye makeup to look nice though, but it’s Adam.

    At first I didn’t know if I would say anything about Adam, ’cause I probably don’t swoon at the site of him like most girls. I’m a fan of him though definitely, as well as a big fan of Allison’s. So I thought I’d mention that I think he looks nice.

  65. those are some of the cutest pics i’ve ever seen of alli…she looked great! this was a good gig for Adam…lots of NYC tastemakers there (djs, PR kids who organize parties and help with set lists, industry bigwigs)…it can only be a good thing if adam’s music is played in the popular nyc clubs

  66. Nah, he probably won’t wash it off and just perform at the ADL tonight in the same look, since he only has that ONE style and walks around in stage makeup 24/7.

    I would hope that Adam knows the difference between how one should look for performing at an industry party vs. how to look when performing at an event honoring Steven Spielberg. Also, I imagine that performing WWFM inspires a different make-up pallet than performing the National Anthem does.

  67. Thanks for the link to Allison pictures, she looks pretty. She almost looks a bit awed, it must be awesome to be in such company. I’m glad she had the opportunity to be there. Must have been so exciting.

  68. I would hope that Adam knows the difference between how one should look for performing at an industry party vs. how to look when performing at an event honoring Steven Spielberg. Also, I imagine that performing WWFM inspires a different make-up pallet than performing the National Anthem does.

    I guess we’ll know later today! Or he could pull a Gaga and wear the same eye makeup she wore when meeting the Queen of England! :grin:

  69. Also, I imagine that performing WWFM inspires a different make-up pallet than performing the National Anthem does.

    Hee hee- Have you ever seen his “sheep” version of the Star Spangled Banner? If you’re very patriotic and think that that’s one of those things that shouldn’t be touched- don’t watch it! Otherwise, it’s hilarious…:-)

    But, obviously, he’ll be on better behaviour on the Speilberg event…

    And I’m still routing hard for a duet between him and Noa Dori!

  70. PRMari

    Thanks for the awesome Alli pics!!

    and Lovedarocker LOL!!

    Allison is gonna be a big eh-stah!!

  71. Adam looked awesome last night. Love his outfit. He was dressed to perform and his make up was wonderful. This is make up for stage, and people should get used to it or just forget about AL

    Oh that’s really nice. Just because some of us don’t care for the ridiculous look he sported last night we just have to ‘get used to it?’ or forget about him? We have as much right to say we didn’t like as you do to say you did. Please let’s not start the good fan/bad fan debate.

  72. Oh Kirsten, that’s one of my favorite seasonal movies as well. I thoroughly enjoy forcing my kids to watch all of the Christmas specials I loved as a kid.

    If Adam keeps sporting the Heatmeiser ‘do, he’ll be forever linked in my head with that character. The same way I can never see a post about Archie without the image of a Monchichi popping into my head LOL.

  73. Adam’s FYE video is on ‘power rotation’  on MTV:

    Week of 12/7/09
    NEW ADDS
    Adam Lambert ‘For Your Entertainment’ 
    Shinedown ‘If You Only Knew’ 
    Nickelback ‘Never Gonna Be Alone’ 
    Green Day ’21st Century Breakdown

    POWER ROTATION (25-30 plays/week)

    8. Adam Lambert ‘For Your Entertainment

  74. Clearone – I agree Adam looked tired. Concur on not starting good fan/bad fan debate. Hoping for a positive day!

  75. Clearone-
    I don’t think anyone was saying you’re not a “good fan”- it’s just that it seems pretty obvious that Adam likes this style very much, and will continue to wear heavy make up for a while, that’s why peeps, me included, say “get used to it”. Because it ain’t going away.

  76. Not futile’ ¦she looks gorgeous & adorable, love how they’re stylin her. That fab hair! I know Miley Cyrus is rolling in so much money and living her own particular life that she doesn’t even need to care how she looks, BUT what a classy contrast Ali is.

    Miley clearly is a hard worker but she also kind of fell into all this because of her family business and they seem to be really interested in marketing her as a sex-kitten-under-wraps, kinda, to me, which I think may have a lot to do with how she tends to look. Allison’s a musician and got where she is so far with her own talent and brains, which I think are considerable. What a cool kid she is. She looked gorgeous last night — and also in some of the pictures a little amazed to be where she is, it looks like to me. I sure hope this is only the beginning of great things for her.

  77. Adam’s makeup seems more ott here than other places he’s appeared. At least by the time the pictures were taken, it looks like “too much” to me. Makes him look a bit clownish. Maybe he should have applied it just before his performance, and toned it down for the pictures after …

  78. I wish there was video of this event. Also someone upthread said they showed Adam’s FYE video(Hot!) before he came on and that is cool if it is true. Adam looked like a total rock star here, I love it! Allison is a cutie.

  79. Allison is gonna be a big eh-stah!!

    Ha. I love how her mom said that on the show. And her mom seems to know it! :)

    I really can’t picture Allison not having a nice career, because she is such a great performer with amazing pipes. No pressure though.

  80. I am glad I am not the only one having issues with Adams make up, way too much, imho. But who knows if peeps at the party even cared, did not see any comments on twitter, just OMG Lambert is here! Loved his outfit, though, his stylist is very good. And I am sure he will look fine for steven spellberg event, I hope he looks like he did for early show on CBS, that was one gorgeous look.

  81. Yay! A great night and and great day for Adam. Finally! And he totally was in the right place to redeem himself( if needed for these folks) for his AMA performance. OMG, so many huge people in the industry were there!

    did you all see this little article/vid?

    Did you see how Lady Gaga showed up? Gaga and Adam both performed. In fact, they were the only two artist that performed. The had on their “performance faces”.
    If a girl can glam it up, so can a guy.

  83. This is one of my favorite pictures from last night:

    http://twitpic.com/sqpd0

    Clearone, you forgot to include the part of my message where I said “or just listen to him” because he is not going to stop wearing make up. I was not starting a fan war. You don ´t like his make up, but as mr said “it ain’t going away”.

    I am having a great Adam day, listening to his CD while correcting my students ´final projects. Good for my students that I am in a positive mood ;-)

  84. Allison has the best outfit ever — what a great look for her! Hope she had fun.

  85. But who knows if peeps at the party even cared, did not see any comments on twitter, just OMG Lambert is here!

    Well, the party was filled with people in the music industry. They’ve seen stuff a lot weirder than “excessive eyeliner”. They probably didn’t even notice :)

  86. that’s why peeps, me included, say ‘get used to it’ .

    Well saying it makes people defensive so it’s not the best thing to say…just sayin’

    FTR….I don’t care about Lady Gaga. I think she’s freakish.

  87. Allison looked marvelous, and her hair is divine now. I hated it when I first saw it. Now it’s just stunning. The entire outfit was ridiculous….in a good way. Rocker chic! Adam does look tired, but the dude is working his ass off, flying coast to coast, probably running on fumes, or cocktails, lol. And it’s not going to slow down any time soon. Loved that he and Gaga performed for this A-list crowd. Certainly ain’t gonna hurt.

  88. I think Adam was one of the only two (?) artists who was invited to perform at the VEVO event, with the other being Lady GaGa. (Someone correct this if wrong.)

    His makeup is performance makeup, and very much appropriate in this case.

    And hey…HE likes it! I love that he pleases himself as opposed to trying to please all his fans/non-fans.

    (Although I do agree he looked tired, and the makeup emphasized that rather than hid it, I think.)

  89. Frankly, I had a hard time dragging my eyes away from the glambulge to take a good look at Adam’s make up but when I did I thought he looked fab. We need some video here.

  90. I love the pictures with Adam and Allison and then the one with Adam and Rhianna.

    That clip of the commercial where Adam throws the TV out the window cracked me up. lol

  91. Adam doesn’t look tired to me. He looks like he’s having the time of his life. lol Allison looked cute.

  92. And I’m still routing hard for a duet between him and Noa Dori!

    mr, you are such an optimist! Actually, I’d love if it happened. Nothing suggests it will, but if it does, I’m sure a cyber sleuth will find it.

  93. My first impression at looking at those Adam pictures is that he looks like a tired over-the-hill performer. Maybe thats the risk of gunning full throttle to be the talk of the town. The news cycle gets shorter and shorter until its weeks instead of years or decades. Crazy. When a hallmark of your career is creating bolder and bolder personas that titillate and shock, there’s really only so far you can go. You have to have the music, theatre or acting chops to back that up. Right now, Gaga definitely has that but Adam, not so much. He risks becoming a parody of himself if there’s no foundation of artistry to stand on short of what makeup, hair and outfit he’s going to wear next. Without that, the media circus will soon move on to the next act.

  94. Pretty awesome that only Adam and Gaga performed! Allison is so much better than Miley. She seems so confident in who she is and she has an adult sounding voice. Miley still sounds like a 12 yr old IMO.

  95. I don’t think anyone was saying you’re not a ‘good fan’ - it’s just that it seems pretty obvious that Adam likes this style very much, and will continue to wear heavy make up for a while, that’s why peeps, me included, say ‘get used to it’ . Because it ain’t going away.

    Exactly, its the same comments/debates each post. I just wish someone would come up with a different criticism/compliament. Its the same stuff. Hair or eyeliner, eyeliner or hair. and sometimes we add a comment about wearing black.

  96. Pretty awesome that only Adam and Gaga performed!

    Yes. The networks might censor Adam but the music industry obviously isn’t!

  97. (And yes, the striped pants look like the ones from Slow Ride)

    Count the stripes per leg- they’re not the same.

    I couldn’t care less how Adam chooses to adorn himself for any one occasion but I do wish he got more rest.

  98. People should be happy that we are now discussing Adam and his music and instead we are complaining about eyeliner for a performance. lol I got my morning laugh before I’m off to my first meeting of the day.

    by the way, who is the other black girl in the picture with Adam. The one is Rhianna I know, who is the other? anyone know?

  100. Well- didn’t mean to offend anyone…

    GaGaglambert- It’s always good to be optimistic!
    But now that I seriously think about it, in order to sing that sort of a duet, you need to rehearse, and I hardly imagine he had time to get together with her and rehearse anything.., then again, when people are well trained, they sometimes are able to pull off amazing performances with practically zero rehearsing time and nobody would guess (believe me, I’ve seen it happen many times… I have a bit of a theatre background…).
    Not giving up hope!!! :-)

  101. by the way, who is the other black girl in the picture with Adam. The one is Rhianna I know, who is the other? anyone know?

    I think it’s Ciara?

  102. People should be happy that we are now discussing Adam and his music and instead we are complaining about eyeliner for a performance. lol I got my morning laugh before I’m off to my first meeting of the day.

    Well, in fairness to the people who have commented, we have no video of the performance. So, we can’t see or hear it. Therefore, people are commenting on what we do have – still photos of the way Adam and Allison looked last night.

    I don’t really give a crap about Adam’s make-up, his hair or his clothes. But, it’s kind of human nature to see a picture of someone and comment on how you think they look.

  103. Did you see how Lady Gaga showed up? Gaga and Adam both performed. In fact, they were the only two artist that performed. The had on their ‘performance faces’ .
    If a girl can glam it up, so can a guy.

    I’m telling you, she is a bad influence on him! JK, I would love to see them perform together, Fever anyone?
    and it is raining cats and dogs here in NY, I hope Adam makes it to LA, did they fly last nite?

    this must be the last picture with the big shots b/4 they drop him for selling 50k this week if we are to believe what we hear. lol . so Adam better frame that picture.

    His make up is awesome. I think it was done like that to appear like he is crying glitter when asking whatya want from him. all planned. I don’t think there’s any good fan /bad fan . u like it or u don’t . Adam does things to please himself not for others to approve .

  105. Because of Adam Lambert, AI has lost all credibility. Chris Allen, the supposed winner, has been totally eclipsed by all the Adam Lambert press (thanks to Ent 19). Clearly they promote who they want when they want. No Idol contestant has ever been shoved down the throat of America as he has. Frankly, I am totally disinterested and will never watch AI again

  106. I’m giggling at this whole post about the makeup. Step away from the idol bubble peeps. Pop the bubble!

    This is an industry event. Not an AI reunion. He’s not there to impress the already fans, but to hang with the big wigs and perform for them. It’s not televised for us. These folks don’t bat an eye at makeup. Adam gets it.

    Fierce, totally fierce. And Tommy is one sexy mofo too.

    International, international. That’s all I’m saying!

  107. movin2thabeet said, “You have to have the music, theatre or acting chops to back that up.” Right now, Gaga definitely has that but Adam, not so much.

    Adam’s theater resume includes “Brigadoon”, “Hair”, and “Wicked”. He is a singer and an actor. I like Lady GaGa. I’ve never heard of her theater experience. I think most reviewers concede the point that Adam is a gifted vocalist. Lady GaGa can sing, but she is not in the same league as Adam.

  108. Allison and Sheryl Crow in the same room? I hope they talked about touring together this summer.

  109. AI has lost all credibility

    Tee hee, I don’t think they ever had any. It’s a reality tv talent show. I love it, and I watch it obsessively, but mostly I think they find their talent by accident while they’re trying to create compelling tv.

    This is actually the first season I haven’t been disappointed with the post-AI product. I hear some pretty solid stuff on the 3 cd’s released so far. That took me completely by surprise.

  110. Because of Adam Lambert, AI has lost all credibility. Chris Allen, the supposed winner, has been totally eclipsed by all the Adam Lambert press (thanks to Ent 19). Clearly they promote who they want when they want. No Idol contestant has ever been shoved down the throat of America as he has. Frankly, I am totally disinterested and will never watch AI again

    It’s Kris Allen.

  111. The next couple of weeks are crammed with lots & lots of Adam. So much to look forward to. He appears to have the respect and admiration of people in the music business – the suits and the performers. As he should. He’s super-talented, creative and unique.

    He looks delicious in that Behind the Scenes Making of the Vevo commercial. Simply gorgeous. And so relaxed and funny on camera.

  112. Somebody asked about Kris being there, is his record company one of the ones that have an equity share of Vivo? Sony and Universal Music Group are stakeholders. EMI is part of it but they don’t have equity interest.

    are kris and Allison not on the same label?. i don’t think kris was in NY , he has a lot of jingle balls this week and was probably at one.

  113. Love the promo, screw album sales, these three idols are awesome. Most exciting year for me and even better, just saw FYE on mtv twice this morning,. HOLLA! LOL

  114. Larry King Live will be broadcast from LA.
    So NYC Tues for View taping and VEVO
    LA for Spielberg and LKL Wed
    and back to east coast for Jingle Ball on Friday. Correct?
    if so the only really tight squeeze was going from the VEVO event to the Spielberg event. (I could do it if I were still 27)

    P.S. Or is he 28 now, anybody know when his birthday is? :)

  115. are kris and Allison not on the same label?. i don’t think kris was in NY , he has a lot of jingle balls this week and was probably at one.

    Looks like their schedules are all pretty jam-packed right now. I wouldn’t expect each of them to be available for every event.

  116. Chris Allen, the supposed winner, has been totally eclipsed by all the Adam Lambert press (thanks to Ent 19). Clearly they promote who they want when they want. No Idol contestant has ever been shoved down the throat of America as he has.Frankly, I am totally disinterested and will never watch AI again

    I won’t watch AI either but not becos Adam was in it the previous year but b/cos my darling Paula won’t be at her seat!. that’s my way of protesting hehe.

    You mean Kris Allen, right?
    I actually think that more ppl will watch AI because of Kris, Alison and Adam season and the wonderful music they are putting out now.

  118. I’ve never watched AI before (except the funny auditions on youtube, ofcourse- I will never get over that red headed guy thinking he sounds like Friddie Mercury… I still laugh myself breathless when I watch it… but I digress)- but Adam is something else.
    The buzz around him is because he was just 7 thousand times better than anyone there. Ofcourse ofcourse, not everyone agrees with that- but many people in the industry certainly do.
    I’ll remind you that dozens of music reporters fell crazily inlove with him waaaaay before he “lost” the title. I think he would still have this buzz even had he finished eight place. It’s not only in his management’s hands, you know- when you have Rolling Stone Mag., Entertainment Weekly and many more high profilers chasing you for covers, you would be pretty stupid as a mangement to just ignore that and say “No- we want the WINNER to do all that”. Because no one was interested in the winner. They were interested in Adam, and IMO, justly so.

  119. this must be the last picture with the big shots b/4 they drop him for selling 50k this week if we are to believe what we hear. lol . so Adam better frame that picture.

    LOL! Yep, I’m sure they are sooo disappointed in 250K!

    His make up is awesome. I think it was done like that to appear like he is crying glitter when asking whatya want from him. all planned.

    Some people tweeted “Adam’s crying glitter” last night.

    I don’t think there’s any good fan /bad fan . u like it or u don’t . Adam does things to please himself not for others to approve .

    I happen to like it. I agree, Adam can decide for himself how he would like to look at different performances.
    He likes to wear make-up and experiment with his hair. He’s not going to stop.

  120. I clicked in a side add for the Today show where Donnie Deutshc talks about things from a “man” perspective. I found some of the things that he said as innapropriate for a 10 am show, as what Adam did on the AMA at 11 pm.
    It doesn’t matter whether “Douche” is right about men, or that this is really NBC and not ABC. The point is that somehow, its ok for this guy to talk about glorifying sex and treating partners as sex objects this early in the morning (oh, the children!!), but not for Adam to, well, glorify sex and treat partners as sex objects that late at night.
    Just a point of view.

  121. I am also now an Adam Lambert fan after tonight’s performance at VEVO’ ¦ Who knew! http://tweetphoto.com/6093660

    Uhhh . . . “Who knew!”

    Uhhh . . . “We knew–that’s who!!” LOL. LOTS of people knew!

    I’ve known since Ring of Fire–the first time I laid eyes on Adam. It is nice to be reminded that there are in fact people out there who really don’t know much if anything about Adam.

    I love to see twitter comments like these!

  122. Oh, and I’m not planning on watching AI in the future, but if I continue to drop in on mj’s for my Adam fix every now and then, and I hear someone’s said to be good, I may tune in and watch. But I’m skeptic, as I have tried watching these shows before, and while I love music and good singing, I’m usually pretty bored and annoyed with these shows for putting in “suspense” and manipulation…
    Still, we wouldn’t have heard of Adam Lambert had it not been for AI, and I will always be grateful and give them kuddos for that. And more kuddos for giving him creative freedom. Good for them!

  123. Totally different perspective being inside the AI bubble and being outside. One has to do with fan entitlement, one has to do with loving a performer because of what he/she brings to the table. Some fans are able to move on from AI many don’t seem to want to. There are some Idols who are still playing to the AI crowd like Carrie, but some have just moved on and though they are appreciative of the opportunity that AI gave them they are intelligent enough to realize that this middle of the road, slightly older and conservative demographic isn’t what keeps a singer moving in the real world.

  124. If you look at the performance photos the make up looks perfect. It’s stage makeup meant for a performance. I think he got a little sweaty (but not smelly, god forbid LOL) and the eye makeup ran a bit afterwords. It happens. No biggie.

    I think he looks fabulous. After having seen all the pre-Idol photos (e.g. the big blue sparkly alien prince, fall leaf brief, and various other photos of Adam being Adam), I think his current look is a bit subdued. I know he is capable of MUCH MORE when it comes to hair and makeup. I LOVE that Adam works it when he performs and dresses up. No other guys are doing that right now on the American music scene. Go Adam!!

  125. His make up is awesome. I think it was done like that to appear like he is crying glitter when asking whatya want from him. all planned. Some people tweeted ‘Adam’s crying glitter‘  last night.

    This makes total sense to me. And if I were as exhausted as Adam must be, I’d be loading the make up on too.

    I would love to see them perform together, Fever anyone?

    Me too!! Adam + Lady Gaga + piano = AWESOME!!! This could be a template for their performance. Kind of The Cutting Room, NYC meets Upright Cabaret, LA:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZjm-cmsE94

    it is raining cats and dogs here in NY, I hope Adam makes it to LA

    Weather here still awful. Area airports experiencing delays.

  126. hmmmm… i don’t quite get the commentary regarding adam’s hair & makeup. it’s the same exact look he sported in the final ai live show this past summer, as well as in numerous other performances… his mission is 21st century glam. as he’s been quoted previously stating, he set this up long ago.

    the puzzle is the overlooked point by some that he was one of two performers selected to perform for this high wattage industry group. that’s huge, and it speaks volumes for the trajectory his career path is on. kudos.

  127. Why, at every event Adam is at that Kris isn’t, someone asks “where is Kris?”Give me a break. Kris is busy, his label has scheduled a lot of performance events for him, and they were sceduled a long time ago. Yesterday he was performing for a radio event in Connecticut, wasn’t he? And then he had to travel, as far as I know. And industry events are great, but connecting with the fans, and getting out there and playing for regular people gets you the real grass roots support.

  128. just checked the twitter, the guys usially tweet from planes/airports, nothing; I want to see Adam singing national anthem, dammit! I know, way overinvested fan here,LOL.

    Yes, gaga/lambert duet/video would be epic, fever is an awesome song, can it be the next single? the radio would pick it up in a second.

  129. I sure would like a video of Adams and Gagas performance. THAT would have been a good premier! :grin:

  130. SpenserJ
    12/09/2009 at 8:23 am

    Nah, he probably won’t wash it off and just perform at the ADL tonight in the same look, since he only has that ONE style and walks around in stage makeup 24/7.

    I would hope that Adam knows the difference between how one should look for performing at an industry party vs. how to look when performing at an event honoring Steven Spielberg. Also, I imagine that performing WWFM inspires a different make-up pallet than performing the National Anthem does.

    LOL I knew my remark would be misconstrued. I actually said that in response to another poster who snarked the comment originally. Something about hoping he washes his face before the ADL in about the 10th comment about disliking the makeup.

    I avoided an *eyeroll* after having seen mj post something about not being permitted here.

  131. “”Because of Adam Lambert, AI has lost all credibility. Chris Allen, the supposed winner, has been totally eclipsed by all the Adam Lambert press (thanks to Ent 19).

    I have seen this exact same post over and over at various sites, it sticks out in my mind because it seems that they dont even know who Kris Allen is or Chris would be spelled correctly! They just dont like Adam and that is fine, he has enough peeps that do

  132. Yes, gaga/lambert duet/video would be epic, fever is an awesome song, can it be the next single? the radio would pick it up in a second.

    I don’t think we’ll see Fever as a single. Maybe if it’s released later after (and if) Adam has had several single successes and is firmly established on radio. The line “there he goes…” is probably too controversial for America…

  133. Is that a real TV in the first video? It doesn’t seem heavy since Adam threw it out of the winndow like it were make of plastics.

  134. Loved the make up and outfit. Perfect for the hipster NYC music crowd, especially since he was performing!

    now he has a stylist, I guess they get some credit too, although maybe they just shop for him

    Loved Allison too! so adorable and a great opportunity for her

    ETA: loved allison too! so adorable

  135. OMG, what is he doing to himself? He looks like a total monstrosity with all that makeup.

    I’m sorry…I dislike using such harsh words about Adam, but he looks freakin’ ridiculous. It’s going to be impossible…for me anyway…to get past his makeup & concentrate on his incredible voice if he chooses to keep that god awful look…totally distracting & takes away from his voice.

    I want to slap him upside the head & tell him to snap out of it already! He’s looking heinous. Somebody, please, anybody who has any pull with Adam…tell him to tone it down…it’s awful!

    So sad…he’s so gorgeous in the TFM video & other pictures where I’ve seen him toned down & natural looking. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  136. Adam & Ke$ha look good together. I think a club tour with those two would be a lot of fun!

    I love the pic of Adam and Rihanna, haha. Anyway, I really hope video of last night’s performance of WWFM shows up! And I can’t wait to see the full Vevo commercial. The behind-the-scenes clip is fun and Adam looks very, very pretty!

  137. Sorry – don’t like that picture up top with Allison, too much makeup for me (well actually I just don’t like the way it’s applied)…

    I haven’t had the opportunity to say on this board how much I LOVE ADAMS CD – great job…

    Least favorites is probably Aftermath and Broken Open…

    Most favorites are: Loaded Smile, Sleepwalker, Fever, Music Again, For Your Entertainment (and others I don’t know the name of off the top).

  138. “”I want to slap him upside the head & tell him to snap out of it already! He’s looking heinous. Somebody, please, anybody who has any pull with Adam’ ¦tell him to tone it down’ ¦it’s awful!

    So sad’ ¦he’s so gorgeous in the TFM video & other pictures where I’ve seen him toned down & natural looking. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”””

    shhhh -take a deep breath, calm down, he will be fine, one pic with runny make up does not a loser make! lol –

  139. Also, I imagine that performing WWFM inspires a different make-up pallet than performing the National Anthem does.

    Red, white and blue glittery eyelids for Spielburg’s party? Or not :)

  140. ‘You have to have the music, theatre or acting chops to back that up. Right now, Gaga definitely has that but Adam, not so much.”

    I don’t know. I kind of think that, on Idol, Adam showed that he knows pretty well how to vary his performance, bring them up, bring them down, go all theatrical in some and straight in others, etc. ….

    I don’t expect him to have a real problem bringing the variety, especially when you consider that he’s been a big hit in straight, badly received musicals like the Ten Commandments, where he was clearly the one and only showstopper, and in the Upright Cabaret and the Zodiac Show and such, where he did the over-the-top stuff as well as the sincere solo singer stuff …

    Granted, he doesn’t have the pop-music experience that Gaga now has and she’s a good instrumentalist and such and he’s not. But he’s getting more of that experience now, and he did get points for songwriting talent from at least some folks that worked on his album.

    He certainly has a different mix of talents and skills than she does, but I would be hard pressed to say that he’s way less talented or skilled. And he seems to be a pretty fast learner as well.

    I think the difference that means he’ll most likely be a solid gold seller and very substantial niche artist, compared to her being a platinum singer and pop phenomenon, is that fewer people may want a guy singing like he does and doing the theater-glam thing like he does.To me, the most popular guys seem to be either serious guitar strummers, or hard masculine rockers in black tee shirts, or rappers. Some good looking, pretty-singing black guys with whitish features seem to get away with a softer sexuality, but I don’t see any top-selling white guys who do. And I don’t see any really top-selling guys wearing makeup. This may not be the era for that. … For me, though, none of that reflects on his theatrical and musical talent, though, just what the pop taste of the age may be.

  141. The line ‘there he goes’ ¦’  is probably too controversial for America’ ¦

    you know, I was thinking the same thing when I listened to the song the first time, radio cannot be too out there, they will lose listeners. I listen to z-100 a lot, and even they stay kind of safe, imagine other more conservative stations. And just to point out, something interesting with Z-100, they love Adam, for real, but when FYE(single) was released they put it on the request list, but never played it for some reason, overtly sexual lyrics, ” pain/pleasure, hurt u real good” maybe? And I thought the song was about entertaing us, the listeners, LOL.

  142. LOL I knew my remark would be misconstrued. I actually said that in response to another poster who snarked the comment originally.

    I’m sorry – my bad. I got that you were being facetious/sarcastic. I didn’t really think that you thought he wore the same make-up for two days straight LOL.

    The good thing about when you dislike Adam’s current look is that he’s so fickle, you have very good odds of seeing him look completely different the next day.

  143. OMG, what is he doing to himself?

    Whatever the hell he wants to do to himself. Just like Lady Gaga does.
    Just like we all do.

    This is from an article link in the headlines thread:

    POP STAR ON FIRE Let’s get one thing straight ‘” despite what his album (For Your Entertainment, RCA) and single proclaim, Adam Lambert is not here for your entertainment. Well, sure, he’s a performer, and as such he has certain obligations to his fans. But that doesn’t mean he exists solely for our benefit. If he did, we’d be able to mold him to our liking, creating either a sexuality-defying glam rock god or, to use a Rufus Wainwright term, the gay messiah.

    Adam looked awesome last night. Love his outfit. He was dressed to perform and his make up was wonderful. This is make up for stage, and people should get used to it or just forget about AL

    Oh that’s really nice. Just because some of us don’t care for the ridiculous look he sported last night we just have to ‘get used to it?’ or forget about him? We have as much right to say we didn’t like as you do to say you did. Please let’s not start the good fan/bad fan debate.

    For me, it’s more like I just ignore the things about the singers I have an issue with. Such as: Carrie having no charisma and trying to be all dangerously (and foolishly uncoordinatedly) groped on the AMAs, Cooks’ butt ugly hair and can’t be bothered looking clean style, Clay giving up 6 years of his life in avoiding the gay, Kelly being too complacent to be bothered buying a decent outfit for a live show…you get my drift.

    So as a mom I CELEBRATE any young entertainer who is willing to put themselves out, AND give fans something to enjoy and/or talk about.

    For me, continually harping on a performer’s personal style would feel like being one of those women who keeps picking the wrong man and thinking they can change them. What’s the point…

    Aside from the fact I adore Adam’s entire thing especially the old school completely covered in greenbody and bluebody glam cosmetic, Zodiac feather Change is Gonna Come act, huge blond dreads and bejewel-ed one of a kind compelling STARPOWER. LOL

  145. Dammit, I will never catch up on this thread. People…srsly, wait for me next time, k? ;)

    I am so happy for Adam I could burst. I don’t care if his skin is blue (which could happen, actually, and it is kinda orange in that behind-the-scenes video). WWFM is getting lots of spins, FYE video is out and will hopefully make Top 20 on VH-1 this week, he has tons of appearances, he will look so handsome at the Spielberg even, I’m sure (suit, non-puffy hair, I hope)…God, thrilled for the guy who hasn’t even had his birthday yet. So many goods!

    And on the Twitter said, @Longineu is finally following me! 20 tweets later (he promised ;)). He just tweeted:

    On my way back home, thank you all for the support!!!!!:) about 1 hour ago from TwitBird iPhone

    What up japan can’t wait to see you!!!!! about 1 hour ago from TwitBird iPhone

    Sitting in the van,,,, lots of traffic……. about 1 hour ago from TwitBird iPhone

    At the view http://twitpic.com/ssq8b about 1 hour ago from TwitBird iPhone

    I didn’t know he was gong to Japan…

    Anyway, will check in later. Happy, happy days to be an Adam fan. :)

    Oh, of course I love him most with emo hair (Ellen Show: so handsome), but I will take Adam anyway I can…in a platonic way, of course. 8)

  146. Exactly, its the same comments/debates each post. I just wish someone would come up with a different criticism/compliament. Its the same stuff. Hair or eyeliner, eyeliner or hair. and sometimes we add a comment about wearing black.

    Be careful what you wish for LOL, some of the debbie downers might stay up all night thinking up creative criticisms. In fact I saw one today but don’t want to dignify it with a response.

  147. It’s going to be impossible’ ¦for me anyway’ ¦to get past his makeup & concentrate on his incredible voice if he chooses to keep that god awful look’ ¦totally distracting & takes away from his voice.

    Luckily, Adam has a great cd out. You don’t even have to look at him-just listen.
    Or you could go watch 12 weeks of his idol songs, Today Show, GMA, Letterman, CBS Early Show and Ellen. Also coming up-Leno, Conan, Chelsea Lately and The View! Something for everyone!!!

  148. I don’t think we’ll see Fever as a single. Maybe if it’s released later after (and if) Adam has had several single successes and is firmly established on radio. The line ‘there he goes’ ¦’  is probably too controversial for America’ ¦

    Yeah, unfortunately I agree, and said something similarly the other day. I feel that if Adam could really breakthrough on radio with a few hits, and get radio to more fully embrace him (sexuality and all), THEN we’ll hear Fever on the radio :-) One can dream…

    Whatever the hell he wants to do to himself. Just like Lady Gaga does.
    Just like we all do.

    LOL – tru dat! How many times has Gaga been rather vocally ridiculed for her outfits. As Adam says, she’s so brave – she just does it, regardless of whether everyone LOVES it or not.

    Not saying you can’t dislike Adam’s appearance from day to day – there are def. some looks of his that I’m not as fond of (YHA, anyone?) But he’s gutsy, true to himself, original – I’d rather that any day than have him weak, self-doubting, or conforming.

  149. Because of Adam Lambert, AI has lost all credibility. Chris Allen, the supposed winner, has been totally eclipsed by all the Adam Lambert press (thanks to Ent 19). Clearly they promote who they want when they want. No Idol contestant has ever been shoved down the throat of America as he has. Frankly, I am totally disinterested and will never watch AI again

    AI S8 is way over. There is no longer who’s the winner anymore. The AI finalists and winner are now on their own on their career paths. The treatments that Adam has been getting are from the media, the music industry and from the TV networks.

  150. I didn’t know he was gong to Japan’ ¦

    I don’t know that he is. Didn’t he tweet about Japan the other day, but when people asked, he said that he HOPED to some day go to Japan.

  151. mr
    12/09/2009 at 10:05 am
    It’s not only in his management’s hands, you know- when you have Rolling Stone Mag., Entertainment Weekly and many more high profilers chasing you for covers, you would be pretty stupid as a mangement to just ignore that and say ‘No- we want the WINNER to do all that’ .

    Yes, and each Idol contestant had the opportunity to shine. Adam created his own narrative including the AMA performance. If he were lazy, a stumblebum in interviews and lacking charisma, he wouldn’t keep getting them. He respects every single interviewer and tries to offer the viewer/reader his “best performance” every single time. A theater tradition. Which he’s stated several times.

    And something that I’m sorry that Kris seemed to not understand. Of all the lessons he could have learned from Adam that is number ONE. SHOW the public you are giving them SOMETHING that’s of value to you and you respect.

    Not going to GMA for a performance of your new single and saying you’re too lazy to walk around off the stage and that you were out till after 1 am and tired. And not interviewing how much you prefer the writing process over the performance.

    Nature abhors a vacuum and the people who want and enjoy the “fame” and are capable with talent to offer will fill it. That’s the whole point, isn’t it?

  152. BTW – just had to say that this event sounded beyond awesome! Yeah, mini Grammy-esque celebration. I mean, talk about big names there! All the hottest music producers and talent today. Wow. That is great for them to get to hear Adam live and experience his amazing awesomeness in all its glory.

    Seriously, I have to say, despite his stumbles along the way, looking at his level of performance, and particularly those vocals, I’m just kinda floored by how much more talented he is than most other pop performers today. Really – to hear him sing live (most of the time, lol) just kinda shows what a different league he’s in than so many “autotuned to death” singers today. Hopefully an event like this makes that very clear to the bigwigs :-)

  153. And something that I’m sorry that Kris seemed to not understand. Of all the lessons he could have learned from Adam that is number ONE. SHOW the public you are giving them SOMETHING that’s of value to you and you respect.

    Yes, I really respect Kris, and I understand that this is part of who he is, but one of the most troubling things about some of his interviews and public appearances, especially early on, has been this sense that he’s not always the most enthusiastic about his work, the profession, the music. He loves it, obviously, but we need to feel that enthusiasm too. Through twitter or what have you, he just didn’t always succeed in capturing that enthusiasm to make the audience care as much about his journey and product. After all, in the end, you ARE selling a product.

  154. Unfortunately Lambert has decided to venture down the path of celebrity, and has forsaken the path of musical artist. His look, on stage, and on camera behavior has become clown-like. His “in your face” persona and attitude seems forced and manufactured. Irregardless of whether this is who he really is or if it is just a manifestation of Lambert and his management, people are quickly tiring of the act.

  155. I’m just kinda floored by how much more talented he is than most other pop performers today. Really ‘“ to hear him sing live (most of the time, lol) just kinda shows what a different league he’s in than so many ‘autotuned to death’  singers today. Hopefully an event like this makes that very clear to the bigwigs :-)

    I’m sure it will. I think this recognition is at least partly behind his being invited to this event as well as behind the (relatively small!) part of the famous “hype” that comes from music critics and writers.

    But I think they also *all* know that, while unusual and interesting talent can get you a very solid career, it has, like, zero ability to make you the hottest thing in entertainment. That’s all about taste. And I don’t think it’s clear at all at this point whether Adam will translate into a performer who appeals to the taste of millions or only the taste of a solid hundreds of thousands (in this country — if you add up the whole world, I’m sure it will ultimately be a million or two at least …) I think they’re just testing the waters on that at this point, to see what will happen. No evidence one way or another, though, yet, as far as I can see.

  156. For me, continually harping on a performer’s personal style would feel like being one of those women who keeps picking the wrong man and thinking they can change them. What’s the point’ ¦

    great comparison and so so so true!

    I like his look and im not tired of him, i hope he will never change. :P

  158. To me, the most popular guys seem to be either serious guitar strummers, or hard masculine rockers in black tee shirts, or rappers.

    A change is gonna come…

  159. people are quickly tiring of the act.

    Not everybody! I’m actually looking forward to the next makeup-heavy performance! It just boils down to — Some of us love theatrical, outrageous and sometimes silly stuff, and some don’t. …

    I agree with you that my group is probably in the minority. But I still think it’s a pretty substantial minority. So there’s nothing wrong with that…. Adam can’t be James Taylor or Andrea Bocelli, despite his having a pretty voice like they do. As an entertainer, you’ve gotta specialize at least to some extent what comes naturally to you, or else you won’t hvae either the steam or the talent to fulfill your own potential, I think. … But in doing that I think you have to realize that your particular potential may not take you to Britney or Eminem levels, because it all depends on how many people find who you are to be to *their* liking — and you hvae no control over that.

  160. To me, the most popular guys seem to be either serious guitar strummers, or hard masculine rockers in black tee shirts, or rappers.

    A change is gonna come’ ¦

    We’ll see! Personally, I’d be happy if it would — but when I look around me I really don’t think I want to bank on it!

  161. I’m not tired of him because he’s different in every single appearance! I like the ongoing ‘what will he….?’

    However, I am tired of Nickelback.

  162. I love FEVER too, when I put the CD on I have to play it over and over, maybe they can dub in on the Radio when they play it, to There SHE goes, my baby walks so slow, sexual Tic Tac Toe, Oh, I could go on!!!

  163. If Gaga and Adam dueted “Fever,” she could sing “There he goes . . .”

    Just a random thought, not that there really is a duet in the works or that kinda copping out like that would be a good idea anyway.

  164. I loved Adam ´s look: his hair, his makeup and the fact that he was able to perform live in front of the heavy weight industry people so they can see (if not already) the he really has the talent and star power to be a great pop star.

  165. I am removing my comments, b/c I just want to be happy about Adam’s success today. :)

  166. Is that Barry Weiss, the guy who’s got his hands wrapped around Allison in this pic?

    He did say the following right?
    “Allison was an absolute stand-out this season,” stated RCA/JIVE Label Group’s Chairman and CEO Barry Weiss. “Her bluesy, powerful voice, spunky attitude, and edgy star power immediately captivated us and it didn’t matter where she ranked on Idol, we knew we wanted her to join our amazing crop of young talent at Jive.”

    Man he believes in Alli – he probably called her for the photo op – and probably responsible for her invitation.
    Good news all around.

    Someone said Adam has the Robert Smith vibe, and I agree. The Cure kicks.

  167. i am thrilled about everything about him..his look his voice..it must have been a really exciting night for him.

    what is about him that i can hear about him 24/7 and its never enough!!!

  168. I loved Adam’s look last night. The hair and make-up were fabulous. The glitter only came out for his performance and I’m sure it looked amazing under the lights and spiced up “Whataya Want From Me.” This is the Adam I love!

    I find the weirdness over the Fever lyric strange. The majority of Adam’s fans are female and we sing along “There he goes, my baby walks so slow.” It’s like “uh huh, yes he does.” Songs are released to the public to make their own. I’m not thinking about Adam’s sex life when I listen to Fever. It’s my own sexy song.

    I’m actually looking forward to the next makeup-heavy performance! It just boils down to ‘” Some of us love theatrical, outrageous and sometimes silly stuff, and some don’t. ‘ ¦

    I’ll never understand how people who claim to be fans don’t love his theatrical, outrageous, heavily made up, sometimes silly side. That’s WHO Adam is. That’s who he was before AI. That’s who he was on AI. That’s who he was on tour. That’s who he’s been since he left the tour. He’s never been anything different. That’s who he is as a performer at his core. That’s not going to change. It’s one thing to say you don’t like a particular outfit, but another to say you want Adam to change who he is as a performer/person.

  169. “I find the weirdness over the Fever lyric strange.”

    If Fever is released to the radio and it isn’t played because of a pro-noun then Adam is totally right that discrimination does exist.

  170. No way should should the lyric ever be changed to ‘She’ when Adam sings it.

    no, no, no..nobody uh, no, no no…

  171. For me, continually harping on a performer’s personal style would feel like being one of those women who keeps picking the wrong man and thinking they can change them. What’s the point’ ¦

    Perfect!
    Sometimes he is going to look like the boy next door and sometimes a glam god. That has ALWAYS been the way Adam is.

  172. I like Fever. I think Fever could be a big hit, tho it isn’t my favorite song (I can’t get Pick U Up or If I Had You out of my head). I think IIHY (Monte’s favorite song, he tweeted) is a really bouncy song, and PUU is more mainstream, but just works, IMO, and his voice–supreme. He hold that note for nearly a minute at the end, as the vibratto comes shining thru, and then he laughs, as to say, See what I can do? Love it!

    “Someone said Adam has the Robert Smith vibe, and I agree. The Cure kicks.”

    YES. I have seen Adam as a Cure/Depeche mode sort of singer for a while (to wit: Soaked, Broken Open, A Loaded Smile). I don’t know if this is still in, but I love this vibe a lot. Maybe it’s coming back into vogue.

  173. I think you have to realize that your particular potential may not take you to Britney or Eminem levels

    There is no accounting for taste. If Britney and Eminem were brand new artists I would be sitting here saying they will never make it. I can’t stand either one but apparently hundreds of thousands of people disagree with me.

    So it doesn’t matter if everyone gets Adam. No matter how many fans Adam accrues inside and outside of the U.S. there will still be people scratching their heads and saying WTF? And the rest will be saying “I told you so!”

    P.S. I hope the Japan tweet reference means they are trying to set something up in Japan. I have been to Japan and I am 100% sure they would love them some Adam. And it is so much fun there, Adam and the band would have a ball.

  174. SherriEShepherd: Pre-taped Adam Lambert. He’s a really nice guy. We talked b4 he went on. I respect him & he respected my views. Plus loved that eyeliner

  175. I love FEVER too, when I put the CD on I have to play it over and over, maybe they can dub in on the Radio when they play it, to There SHE goes, my baby walks so slow, sexual Tic Tac Toe, Oh, I could go on!!!

    Sorry, but no way. I’d rather go with: don’t even push it to radio, than change that line. Adam would likely NEVER compromise to that, nor should he. Same as the blurred kiss, etc – HUGE double standard for him to have to change that line for the sake of, what, exactly? It’s not profanity, it’s not harmful. So, yeah, no compromise ever on that line.

    I’m not tired of him because he’s different in every single appearance! I like the ongoing ‘what will he’ ¦.?’

    However, I am tired of Nickelback.

    ^^ THIS! Absolutely! Kinda goes to my comments last night on the album sales thread – what is safe, is usally what sells better, even looking at AI success stories, Carrie, Kelly, Daughtry – they are all safe, stay to what is expected of them, don’t veer to far off from that, and that’s part of what has led to their success.

    But at the same time, that safeness is incredibly boring imo. Though Adam’s constant flirting with danger may not win him as many fans, I wouldn’t change it for the world :-)

  176. I think one reason that some people have problem with Adam’s ott make up is that Adam is male (Lady Gaga doesn’t have that problem because we’re used to women put on dramatic makeups) and he is a quite good looking man without make up – so that his make up is not justified. Some people will ask why he needs the make up when he looks pretty (or prettier) without it. If Adam were uglier that he is, I guess less people will question it.

    But Adam may not put on makeup merely in order to look prettier. I think the make up and the outfit is just another way he choose to express himself. Feeling free to express themselves even when that won’t please other people is one of many reasons that we need artists, imo. We have many inner selves that we want to put on now and then but never be brave enough to do so due to the restriction from society norms. Artists in some way fulfill that desire in us. They embrace the freedom of expression and I admire that. just my opinion…

  177. P.S. I hope the Japan tweet reference means they are trying to set something up in Japan. I have been to Japan and I am 100% sure they would love them some Adam. And it is so much fun there, Adam and the band would have a ball.

    Oh, yes – Adam would LOVE it there, and they would love him back :-) Harajuku in Tokyo was MADE for Adam!

  178. the puzzle is the overlooked point by some that he was one of two performers selected to perform for this high wattage industry group. that’s huge, and it speaks volumes for the trajectory his career path is on. kudos.

    Good observation! That is pretty awesome!

  179. I’m actually looking forward to the next makeup-heavy performance! It just boils down to ‘” Some of us love theatrical, outrageous and sometimes silly stuff, and some don’t. ‘ ¦

    I’ll never understand how people who claim to be fans don’t love his theatrical, outrageous, heavily made up, sometimes silly side.

    Well, I agree with this to some extent. But, to be fair, Adam does have his *voice* alone to make people fans of …. And I can imagine some folks really really liking his voice, while having entertainment tastes that aren’t at all in Adam’s ballpark …. And if you were like that and saw him perform Mad World, Tracks of My Tears, Change Is Gonna Come, etc., you might easily *hope* that his music career would have the voice as the primary, or even the only, focal point. Because that’s the music you’d love to hear and buy! And Adam did show us this side of himself, and not just on Idol but at the Upright, with performances like Come Home, and with I Just Love You and The Prayer…. etc. If I weren’t a theater girl and didn’t love big crazy performances but loved voices, I can easily see myself being disappointed and maybe even annoyed at the direction he’s taking his career in at this point! I would want that voice to perform in ways that were to *my* liking! (I definitely have felt this with some other Idols, such as Daughtry and Archie, for example.)(

  180. suebrody : YES. I have seen Adam as a Cure/Depeche mode sort of singer for a while (to wit: Soaked, Broken Open, A Loaded Smile). I don’t know if this is still in, but I love this vibe a lot. Maybe it’s coming back into vogue.

    Soaked – probably the best song in the album, for me. In my view, Adam should’ve gone for the Depeche Mode/Cure/NIN sound and direction, rather than glam.

    Ideally, industrial punk(AFI) would have been a homerun. FTW

  181. the puzzle is the overlooked point by some that he was one of two performers selected to perform for this high wattage industry group. that’s huge, and it speaks volumes for the trajectory his career path is on. kudos.

    Wow. That is very cool.

    My general consensus is, the music biz, and a lot of the media, seem to really LOVE Adam – he’s a great interviewer, great personality, great talent as singer and performer, he definitely has a lot of the right ingredients to be that next big thing (or at least, do really well in a difficult industry). However, it’s still early going when it comes to getting Joe Schmo on the street to learn about him, especially to learn about his music. That will take a little more time. But there it is.

  182. suebrody, can you tweet @monterrific (or whoever you think will respond!) as to when we will know what Adam and the bands “big, big plans” are for New Years Eve? Below are previous posts if that helps:

    Monte told me he would they would do some sort of concert for NYE. I am sure they are scouting around for some sort of gig. (fyi–this was your post on 12/7)

    In answer to Q about NYE plans (this was someone else’s post, also on 12/7):
    @glambert_1481 oh yes. big, big plans. It’s going to be so much fun
    Monte was replying to 1481’s question about what they had going on for NYE.

    Your post seemed like Monte was saying that they didn’t have anything concrete yet, but the response to @glambert_1481 made it seem like something was already scheduled.

    Do you think you can get something more definite from Monte? I think it’s so important for Adam and the band to have a really good NYE’s gig.

    It also concerns me a little that Fox and NBC haven’t snatched Adam up for their NYE shows if he is available. Maybe you can find out more info?

    Oh…thanks for being our “link” to the band! You are awesome!

  183. I’ll never understand how people who claim to be fans don’t love his theatrical, outrageous, heavily made up, sometimes silly side.

    …and I’ll never understand why people do. Being a fan of the VOICE and not the theatrics, it’s disappointing to me when he doesn’t focus on his greatest gift IMO which is his incredible voice. I feel the glitz and glam takes away from it and that it’s a waste. Others feel differently…..whatever…..

    ….or what Lucy said.

    I do realize this was an important appearance for Adam last night but honestly I’m more excited that he’s singing for Steven Speilberg tonight.

  184. No way Monte will spill the beans on NYE. We’ll find out when we find out. Frustrating, but that’s the way it’s going to be. I hope he does get a great gig!

    I agree with the above post that the media and critics love Adam but selling to the masses is a tougher road. Mainly because mainstream music can’t get out of it’s own box.

  185. I think one reason that some people have problem with Adam’s ott make up is that Adam is male (Lady Gaga doesn’t have that problem because we’re used to women put on dramatic makeups) and he is a quite good looking man without make up ‘“ so that his make up is not justified. Some people will ask why he needs the make up when he looks pretty (or prettier) without it. If Adam were uglier that he is, I guess less people will question it.

    ITA. Also. A lot of artists/actors try to choose roles that make them less attractive, so people can focus more on their talents (Johnny Depp, Charlize Theron).

  186. Here’s another example of “star power”. Adam’s drummer has his own little fan club of Adam fans and he humbly, sweetly stays in touch on Twitter. The guy’s been around the world and is a famous drummer but he is GRATEFUL. He even had the girls email his dad LOL. So last night he said goodnight and tweeted this adorable photo: http://twitpic.com/srpe3

    You can’t teach authentic. And authentic will find it’s own audience, IMO.

  187. Wow, Adam resembles frontman Robert Smith of the Cure as if they were twins, LOL. Takes me back to my teen years of my generation, the ’80’s. Ooooohoooo!

  188. “I’m more excited that he’s singing for Steven Speilberg tonight.”

    But only a few hundred people will hear that and we aren’t included. Realistically very few music buyers seem to care about a voice anymore. Singers with great voices seem to be shelved to the easy listening format and are sold to the over 40 set. If I was young and talented the last place I would be looking for fans would be those who only listen to music inside an elevator.

  189. Whomever suggested what are Adam’s & the bands plans for NYE, suggestion to FOX… have The Glambert on their NYE special… hint, hint!

  190. Oh’ ¦thanks for being our ‘link’  to the band! You are awesome!

    I try! Now I have Monte AND Longineu!!! ;) Longineu is a sweet guy and Monte loves the fans. Tommy tweets but isn’t as invested (oh, Tommy, tsk ;)). I have tweeted Monte, but I highly doubt we’ll hear anything until it’s official. Still hoping very hard for Carson Daly!!! He has been tweeted as well by a few Adam fans.

    I d not think FOX will pick up Adam, b/c they already have Allison and Kris, and I don’t think they want a Kradison special (just a thought, dunno).

    I have to admit that as a ginormous fan of Adam, I have always preferred the softer side (MW, FG, ACIGC, Come Home from Upright), or no, the more introspective side. SO on the album, my favorite songs are WWFM, TfM, Soaked, Sleepwalker, and Broken Open. I like A Loaded Smile, too, but when I read Adam’s comments on it, and heard the lyrics, I dunno, I don’t connect to it as much. I like upbeat tracks, too, like IIHU, PUU, Strut, Fever, and Master Plan(well, maybe that’s an anthem?) I do like the more upbeat ones, especially IIHU and PUU, but it’s the other types that make me go umph, and that is partly b/c they showcase his song SO BEAUTIFULLY. I appreciate the glammy side, and enjoy it, but it’s not what attracts him to me as much (Ellen: sob). But I am happy with whatever Adam does that allows him to perform and makes him happy.

    I dunno, but I think this IS his band that he will tour with.

  191. Before playing WWFM, 93.3 just said Adam was going to be on the cover of People magazine this week with his makeup off, talking about what he looks for in a relationship.

    Um… I think they mean this week’s article with Tiger on the cover. ?

  192. I feel the glitz and glam takes away from it and that it’s a waste.

    He was glitz and glam way before Idol. He ain’t gonna change now. He’s living his dream and his dream may not match yours. He’s not going to please you or many others but if he’s not true to himself then what is the point?

  193. I saw Monte’s tweet about them having a New Year’s gig. It was not a response tweet to anyone, it was just an announcement. Notice how he will not give any more details? Badgering will not change that.

    Um’ ¦ I think they mean this week’s article with Tiger on the cover. ?

    Yes. He is in that one. I have it.

  195. “I find the weirdness over the Fever lyric strange. The majority of Adam’s fans are female and we sing along ‘There he goes, my baby walks so slow.’  It’s like ‘uh huh, yes he does.’  Songs are released to the public to make their own. I’m not thinking about Adam’s sex life when I listen to Fever. It’s my own sexy song.

    ^^ THIS ^^

    how do you correctly do quotes, btw?

  196. Because of Adam Lambert, AI has lost all credibility. Chris Allen, the supposed winner, has been totally eclipsed by all the Adam Lambert press (thanks to Ent 19). Clearly they promote who they want when they want. No Idol contestant has ever been shoved down the throat of America as he has. Frankly, I am totally disinterested and will never watch AI again

    AI Fans need to remember that they’re not in the AI world anymore. They’re outside the bubble. They’re in the real world now. AI is only a tiny part of music industry. Music Industry doesn’t care who the winner is and who runner up is. They don’t play by AI rules, ONLY AI fans are still holding on to those silly rules. AI alumnus has to play by the real world rules to conquer it.

    Fans need to view them in a different set of goggles’ ¦LOL.

  197. OMG! I LOVE Adam’s make-up on the ‘Behind the Making’ video.

    Me too.. love when he’s jumping up and down on that bed.. like a little kid.. cute :grin:

  198. ‘I find the weirdness over the Fever lyric strange. The majority of Adam’s fans are female and we sing along ‘There he goes, my baby walks so slow.’  It’s like ‘uh huh, yes he does.’  Songs are released to the public to make their own. I’m not thinking about Adam’s sex life when I listen to Fever. It’s my own sexy song.’ 

    Unfortunately, I think the issue is less with what us fans think about the lyric (gender switching in songs goes on all the time, of course, with girls singing along to “My Girl”, etc.) and more with what RADIO would pick up quickly. They are so damn conservative, and I feel Adam’s sexuality (and gender) are the biggest hurdle at the moment to really getting him major cred on the radio. Radio favors a very specific formula at any given moment. And it only changes every now and then, and by rules that no one really understands.

    I saw Monte’s tweet about them having a New Year’s gig. It was not a response tweet to anyone, it was just an announcement.

    Monte’s tweet about NYE was in response to this:

    @Monterrific Any plans yet for New Years Eve for Adam and the Band?
    7:43 PM Dec 7th from web in reply to Monterrific
    glambert_1481
    Liz Sargent

    and Monte replied:

    @glambert_1481 oh yes. big, big plans. It’s going to be so much fun
    7:44 PM Dec 7th from web in reply to glambert_1481

  200. “I’ll never understand how people who claim to be fans don’t love his theatrical, outrageous, heavily made up, sometimes silly side.

    ‘ ¦and I’ll never understand why people do. Being a fan of the VOICE and not the theatrics, it’s disappointing to me when he doesn’t focus on his greatest gift IMO which is his incredible voice. I feel the glitz and glam takes away from it and that it’s a waste. Others feel differently’ ¦..whatever’ ¦..

    ‘ ¦.or what Lucy said.

    I do realize this was an important appearance for Adam last night but honestly I’m more excited that he’s singing for Steven Speilberg tonight.”

    I agree with both of these points. Adam needs to find the right venues to do both of these styles. And if his concerts incorporated both styles, I think they would be super entertaining experiences.

    I saw Monte’s tweet about them having a New Year’s gig. It was not a response tweet to anyone, it was just an announcement. Notice how he will not give any more details? Badgering will not change that.

    Right, there’s plenty of badgering going on. Lots of demands/complaints and some “I’m going to spam you till I get what I want”

    I was laughing when Monte agreed to follow his fans. He had no idea he was going to receive around 2000 pages of tweets per day but he said he enjoys it. He also just released his personal album on cdbaby and itunes so it’s a win-win. The entire band seems surprised at their individual popularity and very grateful. I’m sure Adam’s given them the 411 on boundaries. Except that one time LP called a fan for her birthday or something LOLOL LP’s father got a twitter and said “I don’t scare easily”. HA.

  202. If Adam drops the glitz and glam, I will find him less interesting. His voice is fantastic and yaddi yadda but seeing how he is creating his stage presence is a huge plus for me too. He is obviously enjoying doing that, so even if is might cost his pecuniarily it doesn’t hurt his artistry at least from his point of view (and I think we should respect their own views for all artists)

  203. Did you see the Gaga performance from last night?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXDTe653-Fs

    She is giving me the ‘I wouldn’t want to perform after her’  feeling lately. Just LOVED when she put her feet on the piano.

    I love Gaga and all that but I can went through half of this performance. I don’t like her version of Fever either, so I guess I’m not a fan of semi-a capella Gaga.

  204. I love Gaga and all that but I can went through half of this performance. I don’t like her version of Fever either, so I guess I’m not a fan of semi-a capella Gaga.

    Hmm I probably like her lately because she is piano singing. Didn’t like her X factor performance very much, not personal enough imo. I didn’t love the first half of her AMA performance either but when she started trashing those whiskey bottled I was totally loving it.

    So, more whiskey bottles and foot on the piano please!

  205. Yep, “Fever” is great the way it is because it IS the way it is. Anything less is a compromise.

    If radio doesn’t play it, that wouldn’t surprise me, but I keep telling myself . . .

    Adam will tour, he will know the people there want to see him/hear him HIS way, and I will be there among them.

    Frankly, I’m already tired of the “Fascinating People” special AND the “View” follow-up, even though they haven’t even aired! because I don’t think they’re really going to get at what makes Adam fascinating.

  206. Don’t forget about Adam on Chelsea Lately. THAT is going to be hysterical!

    I am not going down the Twitter road. If you don’t want to be part of it, that’s cool, but let Monte, etal do what they want. They are big boys.

    I wouldn’t change Fever. I like it just the way it is, and would love to see it get radio play. It might at some point. I think the next single will be upbeat; could be Strut, could be (I hope) IIHY or PUU, could be Music Again.

  207. When Adam visited z100 in NYC didn’t the DJs go on and on about how much they loved “Fever,” and thought it could be a hit? And I think the Lady Gaga connection can only help. I do wonder if the gender reference–and the fact that it opens the song–will be too big of an obstacle for radio. I really hope not, because it might be the catchiest song on the CD.

  208. Did you see the Gaga performance from last night?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXDTe653-Fs

    She is giving me the ‘I wouldn’t want to perform after her’  feeling lately. Just LOVED when she put her feet on the piano.

    So, I may have missed this (been jumping around all the threads today), but do we have vid of Adam’s performance from Vevo? (please say yes!)

  209. I liked the Lady Gaga Performance does anyone have a link to Adam’s performance last night?

  210. dhunken-I have been hoping for a vid of Adam since the Gaga one came out. What up?

  211. Voice plus Glitz plus Glam plus Charm = Adam Lambert

    The glits and the glam is part of the package.

  212. Summer, Monte was asked by many tweeters if there were NYE plans. I had asked (once only) myself. No one here can take credit for it.

    ‘I’m going to spam you till I get what I want’ 

    sleepinggiant, Exactly. And the band is in no position to complain.

    ‘I find the weirdness over the Fever lyric strange.’ 

    If Fever is released to the radio and it isn’t played because of a pro-noun then Adam is totally right that discrimination does exist.

    No way should should the lyric ever be changed to ‘She’ when Adam sings it.

    no, no, no..nobody uh, no, no no’ ¦

    And yet when the lead (female )singer of the former Christian band Sixpence None the Richer sang “There she goes, there she goes again, Racing through my brain, and I just can’t contain this feeling that remains” no one batted an eyelash.

    Oh sorry. I thought you actually introduced the Twitter analysis saying that some were good at it and others uninvested etc…. no offense. The reality is all 4 opened Twitter accounts for adam’s fans so they were babes in the woods . Monte being the possible exception I don’t remember if his was brand new or not.

    Katy Perry kissed a girl all the way to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 and Pop 100, so I think America would be able to handle Adam singing “there he goes, my baby”.

    Summer, Monte was asked by many tweeters if there were NYE plans. I had asked (once only) myself. No one here can take credit for it.

    My response had nothing to do with giving anyone credit for asking- I was just responding to your comment that Monte *announced* the gig, when, in fact, he only mentioned NYE *in response* to twitterers asking him if they had any plans.

  217. Wow seems a little makeup can create a lot of consternation. Alas fans of “good Adam” I think we’ll see a lot more of his glittery twin “edgy Adam”. He can clean it up and make nice when the occasion calls for it, but I people seem to forget that the guy who put on chaps and bleated the national anthem and who painted himself gold for Crawl Thru Fire lives in there too. Bring it on I say, and yes last night he totally reminded me of a young more current and edgy Robert Smith from the Cure too.

    It’s ALL good.

  218. Regarding the catchiest song on the album–Fever!

    During Thanksgiving, I had four kids in the car with me. Their ages were 5, 7, 9, and 13. We listened to the album many times, but they ALL kept asking for FEVER, FEVER, FEVER. Play it again!!

    I don’t think they really knew what it was about, but that was their favorite song because it was so catchy. Kids LOVE that song even though it’s not exactly kid friendly lyrics.

  219. people seem to forget that the guy who put on chaps and bleated the national anthem and who painted himself gold for Crawl Thru Fire lives in there too.

    And don’t forget the sparkly blue alien with plastic skulls around his head and the skimpy loincloth made of fall colored leaves!!

    Adam is the cool cat with the slicked back hair and conservative suit but he’s also a sparkly alien.

    There’s no boxing him in and every time people try to he’s gonna switch it up and try something new! I love the switcharoo, but if you get too vested in one side of Adam or one look–it’s “gonna get rough for you.”

  220. Seems to be alot of talk at AO and IDF that Adam’s interview with Larry King has been cancelled! There has not been a reason posted yet? But there is speculation that it is due to the Tiger Woods drama…

    Ironically, my kids (ages 6 and 9) absolute favorite repeat it again and again song over Thanksgiving was FYE…i mean they LOVE it…..talk about kid-unfriendly lyrics! (luckily they have no idea what they mean — they just like bouncing up and down in their seats to the beat)

    Wouldn’t shock me…LKL schedule changes on a dime to deal with breaking events and scheduled guests are frequently bumped…he did have it on his website last week that adam would be on tomorrow and was asking for fans to email questions…i don’t see it referenced on the website today, so could have been cancelled or rescheduled….or they have enough questions and everything going on as planned tomorrow….

  228. The other thread said Adam’s camp cancelled LKL but I don’t know if that’s true, anybody know? Or Tiger’s sordid story preempted Adam?

    I hope Adam doesn’t go on LKL because the AMAs are so yesterday and I don’t want to hear about it anymore! I’m sure that and Adam being gay are Larry’s main agendas.

    Some people have said that musical guests perform on the show, I have never seen this happen. Less talk more music is what I want to see from Adam and I don’t care how he wears his hair or his makeup!

    I’ve never seen anyone sing on LKL either – but I’m not a regular viewer. So, I suppose it’s possible.

    Wait – Vevo is only available in the US? Surely there are plans at least to make it international, wouldn’t ya think? If they want to be the biggest music video site in the world and blah blah blah, I would assume that they intend to expand their market a little.

    ITA with you re: the songs. Loaded Smile just makes me sad and IIHU and PUU make me very happy – along with Music Again, actually. I really like that song.

    Re: LKL being cancelled – good! Don’t need anymore AMA and/or gay talk. Nothing new could be added to that conversation!

    Re: Barbara Walters updated her Fascinating People interview with Adam. If he’s back in LA today for his Speilberg gig tonight, I can’t figure out how she could meet with him today (as the article indicated). Maybe “today” actually meant yesterday after “The View” interview was taped – not that it matters.

    Re: VEVO party – Although I think he looks good all the time, this was not my favorite look for him and yes, I agree with those that thought he looked very tired. Poor kid.

    I just hope whatever NYE gig he and the band get that they have the time of their lives and that lots of people get go to the event and fall in love with them. Just want Adam to very happy with his career and in his personal life – he deserves it so much, IMO.

    Gotta run. Been gone for a while so appreciate all the news.

  233. Me too.. love when he’s jumping up and down on that bed.. like a little kid.. cute

    Agree!

  234. Press releases say Vevo will be introduced to UK “next year” ..no ention of any other countries though !!

  235. Next year in the UK? Noooo! That means it’ll take forever to reach the middle east…
    Damn! I live at the end of the world…

    Well, off to bed, hopefully there’s some sort of footage when I wake up (either vevo or Speilberg, or dare I hope for both?)

    I wanna hear him SING

    Well now that seems a little counter-productive to world domination, I think.

  237. From blog above;

    Just as I was about to pack it in and head to the Buddy Media holiday party, rumors of Lady GaGa began to swirl, but first – Adam Lambert took the stage with his big melon of thick spiked raven hair and sparkly eyes. That kid has pipes. I don’t care about any of his recent drama, he has a gift. He kind of reminded me of old school Jon Bon Jovi as he performed “What do you want from me.”

    suebrody–the last comment in bold print – did someone else say that or are you saying YOU are not going to post here anymore? It wouldn’t be any fun without you! (if suebrody is offline, does anyone know the answer?)

  239. I’ll never understand how people who claim to be fans don’t love his theatrical, outrageous, heavily made up, sometimes silly side.

    I totaly agree with this. I always thought that Adam has some strange “fans”. I think that if you hate his album cover, his make-up, thought that he should apologize for his AMA over-sexual performance (as if he committed a crime), and only like three or four song on his album, you’re probably not an ADAM fan. You are a American Idol fan, that thought that he was the best (or at least one of the best) contestant of the last season.

    That’s who Adam is. I know he is a complex performer, and not all of his performances are about the theatrics, heavy make-up and overly expressions of sexuality. But that seems to be the kind of artist that he is, even if not all the time.

    A few days ago, I remember reading that someone ask Allison what she thought of his AMA’s performance and she aswered something like: “that’s Adam, what did you expected?”. That girl is smart.

    From this review of the evening:

    http://www.mediapost.com/publications/?fa=Articles.showArticle&art_aid=118853

  241. Katy Perry kissed a girl all the way to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 and Pop 100, so I think America would be able to handle Adam singing ‘there he goes, my baby’ .

    Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works. Girl on girl action is “hawt”. Guy on guy action is “gross”.

  242. Wonder where Adam got his inspiration for his Vevo outfit. Bill wore it a month earlier, but Adam looks better in it!

    http://twitpic.com/ssrzp

    Well, Adam certainly fills the pants out better. Just sayin…

  243. Suebrody….if you really aren’t going to post here anymore, take care..you are alot of fun and will be missed! :)

  244. I just had an interesting experience. I went to VH1 to check out Adam’s FYE video (again, it’s hot ok) and the comments don’t show up for me. I checked out the VEVO site for the video and the comments stated they were loading( there were comments there before) but they never loaded. This struck me as very strange happening on both sites. Any ideas?

  245. I checked out the VEVO site for the video and the comments stated they were loading( there were comments there before) but they never loaded.

    That happened to me earlier today on VEVO.

  246. I wonder if Adam and Bill have the same stylist’ ¦’ ¦.

    Adam said in one of those early behind the scenes videos that Bill was his hair idol. Adam would love your comment.

  247. I just got here to read the thread. Why is suebrody not going to post here anymore? Love ya, suebrody….don’t leave!!

    Adam looked great last night at the VEVO launch. Only Adam and Lady Gaga performed. Wow! Loved how the one reviewer acknowledged Adam’s amazing talent!

    Can someone give me the VEVO website?

  248. Is it just me or Adam’s package is really notorious in the pictures?

  249. Thanks zzatrms for Vevo’s website.

    Barbara Walters Special is on in 10 minutes here!

  250. Katy Perry kissed a girl all the way to No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 and Pop 100, so I think America would be able to handle Adam singing ‘there he goes, my baby’ .

    Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works. Girl on girl action is ‘hawt’ . Guy on guy action is ‘gross’ .

    Yes, sadly. But things will get better, and I really hope Adam’s the one to bring about that change :-)

  251. Adam looked ‘great’ on the Barbara Walters Special! I liked how he said that it isn’t about who he’s sleeping with but it’s about his ‘music’. Loved that they showed the TFM video with Adam in his amazing Rocker voice…and Barbara saying “And what a voice he has”. (or something along those lines)

  252. Well, that’s good news Bowie1. I was teetering on the fence as to whether I should watch it or not. After Barbara’s David Letterman appearance I wasn’t so sure. I’m in California so it’s not on yet here, meanwhile I must not peek on MJs or there will be no point in waiting to watch.

  253. Adam and Allison looked like rock stars. Allison new album #JustLikeYou is incredible. I hope she will start getting the media attention she deserves. One of the best album out now. I have bought Adams album too.
