Adam Lambert Goes Glampire for Private Affair

Internet reports that placed Adam Lambert at a private function Saturday night in Baca Raton, performing for Party City’s Annual Halloween Industry Awards party were absolutely true.

Party City, a manufacturer of party goods, sent out a press release, with photo this morning:

ROCKAWAY, N.J., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ — Party City, America’s largest party specialty and Halloween retailer, celebrates Halloween early this year, as it generates excitement for kids who may not have otherwise been able to get into the spirit of the season.

  1. I like his hair here. Yeah, shallow comment is shallow. Doesn’t look Liza like to me (not to say that I didn’t think it kind of was in other pictures…because I do). But hey, it happens that not every picture looks good.

    But what the heck is that kid dressed as?

  2. But what the heck is that kid dressed as?

    I think it’s a dementor in Harry Porter.

  3. oh my god. he’s so pretty

    terrj- I agree so pretty and sooo skinny! He looks like he has lost more weight. Don’t lose anymore Adam!

  4. Oh, he looks so HOT. I like him thinner; he lost the weight after the show and during the Tour.

    I think the person in the black is the female from the Details Photo Shoot. ;)

    Emo Hair! Adam makes my heart go thud. Wait till he is on the Red Carpet tonight!

    *flailing*

  5. He is one gorgeous man. Too skinny? No, just right.

    Is that Drake?

    Cute!

  6. Is the red carpet event going to be on TV tonight? I didn’t see it on my E! listings…

  7. SQueeeeeee he is so stinkin’ beautiful…. wow, I cannot believe how shallow I have become!! Oh, who cares, I really enjoy his gorgeousness…..

  8. I love this:

    Party guests were entertained by American Idol *star*, Adam Lambert

    He has lost weight. Looks like he did when AI8 began. Thin-faced Adam has a more ethereal look. I don’t mind round-faced Adam though. Gorgeous either way to me.

  9. Red Carpet is simulcast on VH1 and MTV and ustream at 8:30 pm est tonight

  10. He is such a kid at heart. It must have been fun for Adam to do a corporate event that included Halloween and helped support kids as well.

    He probably received numerous requests to perform at corporate or non-profit events similar to the events at which Kris has been performing. It seems so him that with his busy schedule he made time for this one.

  11. I wonder how much he got paid for this gig. Love the look!

    To fly across the country for a private corporate event? He probably got his advertised appearance fee plus expenses. Big corporate events like this will typically have an entertainment budget. The event planner will take that number, then look up who they can afford. Entertainers can really make a good chunck of change doing these kinds of things.

  12. I’ll bet it was fun for Adam to be at this event since Halloween is his favorite holiday. It’s been reported that he sang ROF, I wish we had vids.

  13. Adam does look very pretty in that linked photo. I expected a costume. This is his normal dress. I guess he went for subtle with just the fangs?

    It must have been a fun event for him. As has been said, Halloween is his fave holiday.

  14. If Robert Pattinson can speak with fangs, Adam can sing with ’em.

    SO DAMN HOT.

    Yep, I heard he sang RoF, too. *thud*

    He is such a great guy in pretty much all areas…

  15. All I know is that it is now Tuesday…this was done on Saturday and not a peep from him about the event. I think that really bodes well for Adam’s “private” future. He isn’t a teller of Tales…doesn’t saturate Twitter with details that aren’t really anybody else’s business (even his tweets on Sunday were pretty generic other than his location). He doesn’t come across as a total ass hole and self-promoter…if he was all of this information would have been leaked to his fan sites so they could ooh and aah over what a wonderful man he is because he is at a charity event.

    I am sure he got paid for the gig…but he didn’t “have to” show up early and spend time with the kids. Say what you will but I think this man does have some class.

  16. terraj,

    oh no, can you imagine the rush to buy the condom and brief combo? LOL!!

    LMAO (this might upset some posters. BEWARE when clicking on this link)

    Wonder if there will be a run on this brand? He’s a good sport!

  18. Since you brought it up, don’t care much for Robert Pattinson, or Twilight movies. If Adam is using the expensive tooth veneers that would be used in a vampire movie then you are probably right that there would be little difference.

    I was enjoying myself imagining him singing in a vampirish Transylvanian accent like Jason Segel in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

  19. oh no, can you imagine the rush to buy the condom and brief combo? LOL!!

    I think the run will be by women buying them for their significant others. It will be their little secret.

    Muhahaha!

  20. oh no, can you imagine the rush to buy the condom and brief combo? LOL!!

    Maybe we should be buying stock in whatever he recommends?!

  21. I am not a Twilight fan whatsoever (except the soundtracks are really good: Muse! Death Cab for Cutie!), but I think Robert Pattinson is very cute, and if Adam loves Twilight, I don’t mind the connection.

    It is interesting how little or much Adam tweets.

    Wait till Halloween–Glampire!Adam is going to be out of this world. This was a pre-show ;) Speaking of:

    RED CARPET AFFAIR TONIGHT. JUST A REMINDER. :)

  22. If Robert Pattinson can speak with fangs, Adam can sing with ’em.

    SO DAMN HOT.

    Sue, I don’t think Twilight vampires have fangs

    I just gave myself away. damn.

    beehiway: was enjoying myself imagining him singing in a vampirish Transylvanian accent like Jason Segel in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

  24. Truthiness-

    This might have already been posted, but that kid is dressed as a Dementor from Harry Potter.

  25. lol, Studio57. Someone LURRRVES Twilight… ;)

    I saw the 1st movie with friends. They analyzed it (!). I was like, Um, cheesy, much? But I enjoyed scenes with Pattinson. New movie has more Jakob, so less interest, tho apparently he has buffed up a lot for the role; he is werewolf, after all. I did read the first two books, and Jakob was my favorite character.

    If Adam made a cameo appearance in movie #3, I would be compelled to buy the movie. ;)

    It is SO cool how involved Adam is with children’s charities and how little he pats himself on the back for it. You could tell from the Top 3 homecoming video that his favorite part of the day was seeing the kids from the performing center, tho he also seemed to enjoy the woman who took off her top. lol

  26. Beehiway:

    I love that one! Is it on itunes???

    YEP!

    Sue- the first movie did suck -no pun intended but thought I’d keep it there anyway :) I bought the books for my two daughters and read them too so I could talk to them about it, lol. Loved the first three books. the second movie does look better- of course I am going! What a month for movies! Supposed to go to TII this weekend, but if I am hearing the trailer isn’t worth it, forget it- then 2012, Twilight, and I still haven’t seen Paranormal Activity yet! So many movies, so little time!

    I did find it on itunes. Yes. thanks for the idea.

  28. As Tess said, “He doesn’t come across as a total ass hole and self-promoter’ ¦if he was all of this information would have been leaked to his fan sites so they could ooh and aah over what a wonderful man he is because he is at a charity event.

    ITA with this Tess. Sometimes the fan reactions are such overkill that it just gets so old to me. I’ve always seen Adam as a very talented, handsome, thoughtful, nice, intelligent gentleman who just happens to want to enjoy life to the absolute max….for himself, not for show. There is the “For Your Entertainment” Adam, with talent that cannot be denied, and then there is the private Adam who should be able to enjoy his privacy and protect it. This is the Adam I like.

  29. Oh, totally off topic but MJ does have the ad on her site so I’ll remark on it…I am breathlessly waiting for the film Pirate Radio. I love Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Bill Nighy….loved, loved, loved Four Weddings and Knotting Hill and one of my top 10 movies is Love Actually. And this breaks on the 13th of November…so I can buy a ticket for it and then convince a ticket attendant (at the multi-plex) to let me in for the credits only of 2012.

    Happy day!!

  30. oh my god. he’s so pretty

    This is my favorite look for Adam–he is delightfully feminine and masculine all wrapped up in a glittery aura! He’s radiant.

    I’m not sure how he does it, but somehow Adam can be extremely feminine while not being effeminate. I’m a woman, and effeminate men are not attractive to me. I love masculine energy, but I’m surprised by how attractive I find the feminine look mixed up in that oh so masculine body.

    Who woulda thought??

  31. If Robert Pattinson can speak with fangs, Adam can sing with ’em.

    Not embarrassed to admit I’m a Twilight fan. One of the stipulations the author put in the contract to release the rights for the movie was that the vampires didn’t have fangs.

    The books are 10000xs better than the movies. But what do you expect when they have to make a 2 hour movie from a 400 page book?

    Adam does look great here. This is my favorite look also. And yeah for doing the charity thing without having to get the recognition for it. This says alot about him as a person.

  32. sorry Adam, too feminine looking for me in this shot

    Not sure I understand – you enjoy his less gay look then?

    I think the TMI comments are hilarious. Do people really live on these blogs and not want to know everything that is out there? Seems like an odd place to be if you don’t!

  33. Celebration at Durex headquarters. Because celebrity endorsements for condoms are not so easy to arrange. Though, in Adam’s case, it’s something to consider as an internet or overseas high budget, movie-level production values commercial. Could be done with taste and style. And mean monster money for Adam. (And the YouTube global bounce a bonus.)

    (And, yes, long ago, had a big corp client going to buy a Japanese condom manufacturer, so had to, uh, study the market. Japan apparently makes outstanding condoms. Kept beside the bed in very beautiful boxes. And FYI, American condoms only have one basic size: Bigger than the other guy. Seriously, around the world condoms have regular sounding sizes. But in America they couldn’t sell any mediums, much less smalls. So they made up names, all sounding heroic.)

    Keep wondering if all these “favorites” in Details came with a product placement fee. Because Adam is wiping out a lot of future endorsement categories with these blurbs.

  34. RED CARPET AFFAIR TONIGHT. JUST A REMINDER.

    Is this being televised?

    Yep, 8:30PM EST, VH-1 and MTV.

    :)

  35. I know Twilight series is very popular. Both of my sisters have read all the books so far and my husband dragged me to the first movie. Personally I don’t care for vampire stories anymore, most plots are repetitive. Plus, the book Salem’s Lot finished it off for me. Enough vampire images to last me a lifetime. The story line for Twilight however, was kind of intriguing so I have asked my sister to keep me up to date on the details as the books are published.

    If Adam made a cameo appearance in movie #3, I would be compelled to buy the movie.

    Ditto. Actually have held out hope for him to make a cameo appearance since it he would be thrilled and I think he would be so great. (Picturing super-sexy glammed up but brooding, intense vampire)

  36. Just woke up to a new thread and OMG … sorry guys but … aren’t we all fangirly today!!!

    Methinks that this thread is only going to oooz and gush and gush some more …

    So: something to stem the flow. The boys at DDD posted this comparison.

    Danyl Johnson: feeling good

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQV2DJIswlI

    Adam Lambert: feeling good

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_WVuj4K4fs

    OK. Maybe some more gushing is in order. (Simon ought to be ashamed of himself)

    See you all in headlines.

  37. Re: the Details info, I like how he says it so casually “I don’t even think about it.” GREAT way to illustrate that it’s a given, fav brand or not, that he’s practicing safe sex. This is the kind of response I had hoped for and, frankly, expected. Not preachy or holier than thou. Good for him. It may not seem important, but as someone very active in raising AIDS awareness, I see this matter-of-fact response as a big WIN.

  38. beehiway- all 4 books are out. I was really disappointed with the last one, but the first three are great. I will never get sick of vampires. Although I could never get into True Blood ( vampires with southern accents just don’t do it for me), Vampire Diaries is kind of fun! The “bad” brother, Damon, on there is soooooooo intriguing.

    Did Adam get his hair cut again? He better not have :(

  39. KLI: This is my favorite look for Adam’“he is delightfully feminine and masculine all wrapped up in a glittery aura! He’s radiant.

    I’m not sure how he does it, but somehow Adam can be extremely feminine while not being effeminate. I’m a woman, and effeminate men are not attractive to me. I love masculine energy, but I’m surprised by how attractive I find the feminine look mixed up in that oh so masculine body.

    Who woulda thought??

    You said it, KLI!! I could write an essay on this subject, but won’t… unless someone wants to pay me for it… uh… RSW Dan, you still out there!?? (JOKE!).

    Anyhoooo…. now we know why Adam started in early with the Tweet and interview mentions of being a Glampire for Halloween, which was to promote the party industry. If that means we can forecast clues in his other Tweets, well, there’s a new hobby in itself for some of the more obsessed devoted fans. I must say, though, for all his mentions of Glampire, I really expected to see him in one of his typical OTT creative genius-style costumes, not some ragtag collection of previously worn accessories with a pair of fangs tossed in for good measure. Sounds like something I’d do – I expect more from Adam! Oh, well, Halloween technically hasn’t happened yet, so maybe he got a gift certificate for Party City and can go pick up one of those stock flame-retardant acetate numbers (emphasis on the flame-resistance!).

  40. No matter what, with Adam, even when he is in drag, the testosterone is there. The boy can’t help it.

  41. ^^Me too! I hope we NEVER see that hair cut from the red carpet pictures with the sides all shaved short again!! I’m also not a fan of the pompador (sp.) either, ick. His hair is looking perfect to me lately :)
    (stay emo adam, pretty please)

    Just woke up to a new thread and OMG ‘ ¦ sorry guys but ‘ ¦ aren’t we all fangirly today!!!

    Methinks that this thread is only going to oooz and gush and gush some more ‘ ¦

    So: something to stem the flow. The boys at DDD posted this comparison.

    Link to comparison please, only see the youtube links.

  43. beehiway- all 4 books are out. I was really disappointed with the last one, but the first three are great. I will never get sick of vampires.

    Did Adam get his hair cut again? He better not have :(

    The True Blood books (Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris) are by far the best book series I have ever read. Give them a shot. Much better than the TV series, although it has grown on me due to my love of the novels.

    Back on topic-ish…I do think that Adam got a hair cut or did something different. It looks shorter than his AMA gig. I like it off of his face a little bit more, but I think he looks gorgeous no matter what. Those eyes, that sweet smile. He knows how to work it.

  44. My friends (who are, I might add, much younger than I am, for the most part) LOVE the Twilight series. I read the first one, and liked it quite a lot. The second one, not so much. I couldn’t even get through the third one. I think Stephanie Meyer is a TERRIBLE writer. I have an MFA in creative writing, and if I tried to turn that stuff in, I’d fail. Good characters, fair plot, ridiculous dialogue (I don’t mean Edward and the Cullens, but the rest of them), and she just cannot write descriptively.

    I heard the first movie wasn’t very good, but other friends (older), who had not read the books, found that the movie really delved into crushes and abstinence. Um, okay, got that, don’t need a whole movie to discuss. YMMV.

    LOVE LONG HAIR ON ADAM, but not Elvis!Hair (pompadour, icky, I agree). I like James Dean!Hair.

    I am a pretty non-OTT type. I did not love pics from Zodiac, for the most part, or Burning Man (do love both group/events, however). No green chest for me. I like the more subdued but still hunky!Adam. So a tasteful Glampire would work well for me. ;)

    BTW, did Alisan and Adam meet through Zodiac? Her album is very good, but pretty pop-ish (she has a very nice voice).

  45. Sorry beehiway.

    I implied that they did a comparison but they only listed the two links and declared, from listening to them, that there was no comparison. Gotta agree with that.

    Also, must weigh in on the hair issue … longer hair = good and Liza hair ought not to be discussed because … (gushing tears) … well … it should just … go away … far away … until he’s older than Liza herself … at least …

    IMHO

    Thank you, suebrody. :)

  47. Adam Lambert: feeling good

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_WVuj4K4fs

    Okay: So I love BTBW Adam, RoF Adam, Crying Adam, and also Tour with emo hair Adam. Maybe my favorite is MW, part 2 (finale Adam), which is sort of-Edward-ish with long coat, yearning look. Cannot stand PTFM, WLL, ToMT Adam (or YM, as discussed ad nauseum). , tho I love ToMT. I don’t like Adam in suits–give me the black biker look or long coat (AND MAN, DO I LOVE THE DICKENS SCARF), green eyes, and sweet smile, and meltage ensues. And Come Home!Adam is a favorite.

    Yes, I am shallow that way. ;)

  48. the stars are aligning in Adam’s favor:

    Adam Lambert
    ‘ ¦
    STARmeter: Up 23% in popularity this week. See why on IMDbPro.

    from http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2189338/

    wonder what metrics IMDB uses for the STARmeter?

    Ooh, Alisan is there!

    Adam is back up to #26 on pop iTunes chart; I expect much more movement after tonight. He is at #69 on iTunes chart, and that should move as well.

    Happy to help, fuzzywuzzy.

    Damn, not getting much work done again. SO EXCITED!!!

  49. Okay, one more vampire reference. Then gotta go. It’s kinda OT right. (See title of thread.)

    I loved the movie, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, so campy. The tv series was okay at first, then it seemed that they had to keep going more and more OTT to keep it interesting to viewers (and it still got too repetitive)

  50. No matter what, with Adam, even when he is in drag, the testosterone is there. The boy can’t help it.

    I agree. Adam is completely masculine IMO. He oozes sexuality and it’s def of the male variety.

  51. Sheesh, Simon can be such a prick. I thought it was called a judging *panel*.

    And he gave Danyl standing ovation when Adam didn’t get one. Imagine that.

    Emo hair rules above all others.

  52. BTW, did Alisan and Adam meet through Zodiac? Her album is very good, but pretty pop-ish (she has a very nice voice).

    I seem to remember that Alisan was also in the Ten Commandments with Adam and I believe that was before the Zodiac show.

  53. Confused about emo hair. Does it have the spikey look or the smooth look, or either one as long as it has long sides?

  54. I love how Adam is wearing same shirts more than once; you know, not being wasteful. Can’t wait to see what’s he is wearing tonight. I am hoping for James Dean’s look myself.

  55. beehiway,

    In my mind emo is long and smooth framing the face or with one side falling onto the face.

    But now I’m wondering if I have the same definition as everyone else. My choice of a best example would be Hollywood week.

    heartforadam. I agree. It’s like he chooses and holds on to things that he really loves. And why have more?

  56. The True Blood books (Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris) are by far the best book series I have ever read. Give them a shot.

    My niece keeps telling me she is going to give them to me, if not, I’ll get them for my girls for Christmas.

    Isn’t vampires on topic, lol?

  57. I love how Adam is wearing same shirts more than once; you know, not being wasteful.

    don’t think he’s had much time to shop.

  58. Love Adam Glampire, especially the picture on PH site with the halloween background.

    These gigs are great PR for Adam. I am sure he charmed everybody in the party. This company should have created an Adam costume for Halloween.

  59. Geez. You really appreciate Adam’s breath control and power after listening to Danyl’s version of Feeling Good. I started looking around for an inhaler during that clip and I don’t even have asthma!

    On the other hand, I will admit Danyl’s was better than this version:

    Feeling Good

  60. Oh, yay! A thread devoted to Adam’s look- love it!
    I’ll weigh in as a big fan of emo hair, the spikier the better. These pics from the party are just about perfect!
    But I also have a special place in my heart for the bedraggled sooty end-of-the-world look that he rocked in the TfM video. And yes, suebrody, the Dickens scarf for sure!!

    And this:

    No matter what, with Adam, even when he is in drag, the testosterone is there. The boy can’t help it.

    I agree. Adam is completely masculine IMO. He oozes sexuality and it’s def of the male variety.

    ITA a million percent! I don’t know how to describe it, but there’s something about the look in his eyes and the vibe he puts out that is undeniably masculine no matter what frilly sparkly thing he’s wearing. Something about his utter self-confidence when he knows he looks good. It just says, “Yeah, b*tch, here I am- you know you want me!”
    Irresistable :)

    LOL, GEL, that’s what I’m sayin’ too. It’s amazing and compelling and so HOT!! I guess this has always been the case with the legendary androgynous male performers ‘“ MJ, Bowie, Jagger ‘“ the sexual duality has always been gripping and intoxicating to watch. Add in Adam’s alpha male power and whoa!!

    LaurelG, I also agree with your assessment about Danyl. I like the guy, but his vocal power is nowhere near Adam’s and was drown out by the production completely ‘“ to my mind, anyway!!

  62. Does anybody happen to have the URL of the Ustream for today ´s red carpet? It was in one of the threads yesterday, but I cannot find it now. TIA!

  66. Daryl was good, but no Adam, IMO. Same with Nathan Drake on Aussie Idol (he sang MW, cited Adam, apparently). He’s good, but nowhere in the same league (very cute, tho!).

    ITA on Hollywood week. Adam looked ADORABLE. “I WILL surprise you.” lol

  67. LOL, GEL, that’s what I’m sayin’ too. It’s amazing and compelling and so HOT!!

    Susan, GEL, ITA>
    This has always been the foundation of Adam’s sexual appeal to women– his strength is undeniable. Someone needs to bottle that alpha male/feminine elixir it and sell it to straight men. They’d all be so much hotter.

  68. What I love about Adam (and I did about Cook, too) is there is this earnest confidence. Like, I can do this and you know I can, too, but I won’t show off about.

    Plus they both have great hair. :)

  72. heartforadam, thanks for the Crazy/Ford Day link!! All this time I’ve been lamenting the fact that all of the previously known vids were from far away and you could barely make out what they were saying! These are drastic improvements!

    Hee! Never heard Kris tell Adam the only instrument he probably plays is the triangle!

  73. Aimee’s/Ferras’s song got rejected. Ferras did a song with…I dunno, actually (anyone?). Aimee did a song with her husband Chris and Ryan Tedder from One Republic. I think that one has a good shot of getting in. It sounds like Ferras’s did. And Alisan Porter sang on someone’s track (Ferras’s? Another one?).

    SO DAMNED CONFUSED ABOUT ALL OF THIS NOW.

    I just hope Adam looks purdy on the Red Carpet. :)

  74. My niece keeps telling me she is going to give them to me, if not, I’ll get them for my girls for Christmas.

    Isn’t vampires on topic, lol?

    Yes! It seems to be! Just a warning…these books are NOTHING like Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Series. Lots of violence and graphic sex scenes. Not suitable for anyone under 17 really.

  75. IdolThoughts Sookie Stackhouse series is my favorite. Read them all. The tv series is ok, but just not the same. Anyway, love Adam as vampire…

  76. anthrogeek, my favorite part has always been:

    Adam: I don’t think you could really dance to acoustic guitar.

    Kris: That’s.. a lie.

    See, THIS is why I love Kradam. I’m sorry, but their chemistry is just ADORABLE.

  77. Yes! It seems to be! Just a warning’ ¦these books are NOTHING like Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Series. Lots of violence and graphic sex scenes. Not suitable for anyone under 17 really.

    Good thing you said that- one is just turning 13.

  78. See, I don’t understand Kris’s comment (“That’s…a lie”) when Adam said you couldn’t dance to acoustic guitar. (Sorry, I can’t quote.)

  79. “OK. Maybe some more gushing is in order. (Simon ought to be ashamed of himself)”

    Okay, you guys know those “mis-heard song lyrics????”

    In Kiss and Tell, does he really sing “We GUSH together?”

    ‘Cause I’ve never had any problem conjuring up a visual for that –

    until this darn condom discussion…..

  80. Hee! Never heard Kris tell Adam the only instrument he probably plays is the triangle!

    I thought Kris said “hey, you could play the triangle!” as a suggestion about an instrument Adam could say. About the same thing, but slight modification of intent/tone, I think. But yeah, it was cute how Kris was doing some gentle razzing of Adam’s not playing an instrument with the ‘where’s yours.’

    I’m with suebrody, Kradam are adorable, and love. Not shipping them, but just as friends who can be funny together. It’s nice.

    In Kiss and Tell, does he really sing ‘We GUSH together?’ 

    LOL TXArchitect! Close enough, though! I believe he sings “I gush cuz we’re so fresh together.”

    Thanks for the visual. Heh.

  82. Does anyone know if the streaming sites for the premiere will be any different than MTV’s TV coverage?

  83. Thanks heartforadam Where have those Ford Day videos been?! I’m like anthrogeek, was so disappointed that we did not have front and center video of the Crazy duet.

  84. beehiway, be sure to check out that person’s other vids, too – finally in the Q&A you can actually make out what they’re saying! When talking about Adam’s hair, Kris says “he had me doing… things” – kinda cute.

  85. Seeing that vid of Simon was a reminder of all that is unattractive about the man. Will never forget when Adam sang “A Change is Gonna Come” – heartbreaking (he had tears on his face) – a performance I believe, the greatest ever on AI – Cowell just said, “well, you’re 100% back in the game.” Like Adam ever left.

    Ooo, I was going to rant about this on my last comment about Simon. I totally agree with you. I just hated that Simon treated finale night like a boxing match awarding one round to Kris and one round to Adam. I honestly think that Simon became a bit jealous after Adam sang Mad World and he had that exchange with Paula, paraphrasing, Hi beautiful – You look astonishingly handsome tonight! Simon’s face twisted and looked very unhappy. So I think he wanted to knock Adam a notch, so even though everyone else thought the performance was good, Simon couldn’t say anything good. AND I think that I noticed a slight burst in Adam’s happy bubble for the rest of the night because of it. Anyway just conjecture and my opinion.

    ETA: i am new to most idol discussion so you all have probably covered this ad infinitum in the threads back in May.

  87. ETA2: yes, i know the season is over, had to get that off my chest for some reason, thanks.

  88. OK, run…don’t walk to adamofficial…they have posted the album cover!!!! I’m not feelin’it—-it’s a very feminine photo.

    Adam official .com just revealed the cover of his album

    WOW! Talk about an androgynous look! Cobalt blue hair! Wow.

  90. ITA. Last year, Simon pulled the same crap, but you know, it was worse, b/c with the David’s, they actually had it SET UP like a matching box, with a boxer (coach?) and Andrew Lloyd Weber. The poor David’s had to wear white robes and boxing gloves, if I’m not mistaken. And they made it three rounds, so it was set up that way. It wasn’t quite that way this year, but Simon (barely) gave round to Kris, gave Adam round two (one hundred million percent), and then everyone gushed about Adam while Kris was given faint praise after the craptastic NoBo. So if you were a Kris fan, you picked up the phone but HARD. Okay, I did that with Adam, but it seemed unfair to Kris.

    So, what I’m saying is this had to do with TPTB (the guy next door versus guyliner…not funny, Ryan/TPTB). As for FG, however, it became about how theatrical Adam was (starting with Randy saying it was *too* theatrical, then Kara and Paula disagreeing, and Ryan noted that Adam’s being theatrical was like complaining that a cow mooed). IT WAS BEYOND PATHETIC.

    Anyway…I can’t wait to see Adam on the carpet tonight. WOOT! Emo hair, Adam, I’m begging you…

    However, also recall that for Top 3, Simon, etal pretty much insisted that Adam make Top 2, whereas this was not the case with Kris OR Danny.

    COVER PIC…lemme see….!!!

  91. okay..I just love him but I think this is a little too female looking…what happened to those photo shoots of him w/red shoes, etc. I liked those better. I guess Adam loves those glamour shots

  92. NOOOO. I do not like it at ALL. *sobbing*

    Zodiac, Zodiac…WHERE IS EMO ADAM???

    :(

  93. Wow, not what I was expecting, but I like it. Still need to process!

  94. But he had blue streaks during RoF, and he looked gorgeous…why androgynous? WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY? Why not James Dean!Adam?

    *sobbing*

  95. Ok. I know some people won’t dig it, but I LOVE the cover. I feel like an homage to everything I enjoyed growing up. It’s like hair band + Bowie + glam 80’s glamour shot = alien glitter queen.

    LOVE it. And not what I expected at all, so I love it even more for it.

  96. :(

    Since I have 19 more minutes, I’m going to repeat this:

    :(

    I know he wants to push the envelope, but first he has this funky title and now THIS? God, there are so many people that will not want to buy this album. And I *realize* that Adam says if you don’t like me, that’s fine, BUT I LOVE HIM and I do not like this album one freaking bit.

  97. Bedroom look. Signalling a sexy album.

    It’s a glittery alien just arrived to Planet Earth. See the stardust in the background. Interesting, but unexpected. Edgy, sexual, risky. Everything he said the album was going to be.

  98. I’m really surprised they went with something so feminine…I’m not crazy about it.

  99. okay..I just love him but I think this is a little too female looking’ ¦what happened to those photo shoots of him w/red shoes, etc. I liked those better. I guess Adam loves those glamour shots

    I have to agree with you, joyceanna

    I need to get used to it. I was expecting something different.

  100. I love it!!! He looks gorgeous in that shot..beautiful.

    Here’s his tweet:

    adamlambert
    Album cover revealed on adamofficial.com. Glam is back!!!6 minutes ago from Echofon

  101. Wow totally not expecting that picture. Androgynous is the word.
    Adam certainly looks like an alien glitter queen as Totalele stated above. That is going to freak out/turn off a lot of people. I mean people who are fans and not used to freaky. Not that Adam cares lol. It’s a little feminine for my taste but I like it.

  102. You don’t like it, Sue? Geez, I love it! Gosh, I’m starting to think Adam’s fans aren’t happy with anything he does. Oh well. As long as they buy his album. ;)

    I love the blue as well as the adrongynous look. I think the face catches the eye because it is very feminine. It’s controversial without being ridiculous (like Michelon Man would have been.) Very Bowie-esque.

  103. First thought- He looks like a girl.
    Second thought- he looks androgynous, and GOOD ON HIM FOR STAYING TRUE TO HIMSELF!

    Oh, and can’t wait to hear from the pearl clutchers!

  104. I like it. I looked directly into those eyes for a minute and I can feel it.

    Outerspace in the background. The make-up giving an image of cat like alien eyes. The luminescent skin. The blue tones. The artwork has balance.

    The other worldly look fits right in with the glittery alien theme. Honestly I was hoping for that theme.

  105. You don’t like it, Sue? Geez, I love it! Gosh, I’m starting to think Adam’s fans aren’t happy with anything he does. Oh well. As long as they buy his album. ;)

    Oh, this won’t stop me from buying the album–or several copies–but I dunno. There’s pushing the envelope, and then there is SELLING COPIES OF THE ALBUM. I want him to sell copies of the album to ppl who are not in the Idol bubble, and I dunno…

    Oh, whatever. I wanna see him on the Red Carpet, I want to hear his music, see his videos, and f**k the cover for me. I just wonder what RCA thought…

  106. Be sure and enlarge the picture. It does seem more glam Adam when it is larger. But yes, I would say androngynous is a very apt description. Hmmmm. I don’t dislike it, but I was like Sue, hoping for something more… radical Adam I guess.

    Sue, are you pearl clutching???? LOL

    PS: HE sure is PRETTY…..YUMMY.

  107. I like it but I have a feeling this will be like Blake’s cd cover: love it or hate it. It’s got a real 80’s New Wave look to it or even a Ziggy Stardust feel.

    It’s the perfect cover though for a glammed up male Lady GaGa/Madonna style cd.

  108. I think everyone likes the cover on Twitter but me.

    It’s allright. It’s a bit of a shocker. Adam fans get ready. He is not going to do anything that you expected. The wild ride begins.

    ETA. Look at those lips. This is a sexy picture.

  109. lol, yes, Dallas. ;)

    God, is the new Adam thread up yet? And the Adam haters are gonna have a field day with this one…in 5, 4, 3…

    P.S. I need to look at it a bit more…I reacted too quickly. I was thinking Kris Allen. lol

  110. I love it ‘“ it’s gutsy, it’s graphic, it’s glam and androgynous. From seeing the previous photo leaks and the art director’s prior work I didn’t think they were going generic AT ALL.

    Adam ≠  Coward. They went for it and I love it.

  111. It is meant to be feminine, androgynous, like bowie and prince-

    Glam rock, all about the dress up…..

    It is gorgeous art, bet the pics inside are beautifully artistic as well

    Is that a snake, or a lizard on his wrist???

  112. He is beautiful. Maybe he is TOO beautiful on that pic. Not hot like on all his other pictures.

    I need to get used to it. I need to get used to it.

    That pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it.. lol

    It’s Patrick Nagel with Flashdance font! Glitter boy got balls made of moon rock, yo. Gotta love that.

  114. I like fierce!Adam Gampire, see picture above.

    Going to print it out and look at it a bit longer…I’m sure it will grow on me, the way RoF did…

    Adam don’t give a damn about no one, that’s for freakin’ sure…

    dyg1, yes indeedy. WHERE IS MJ? ;)

  115. It’s utterly outrageous – fascinating – mindblowing – EVERYONE WILL TALK!!!!! A total freakout – go go go Baby.

    Japan will love it.

  116. It is meant to be feminine, androgynous, like bowie and prince-

    Glam rock, all about the dress up’ ¦..

    It is gorgeous art, bet the pics inside are beautifully artistic as well

    And the picture is shirtless and maybe naked.

  117. Interesting. Since this bears no resemblance to the dreaded MM setup we glimpsed, it will be very interesting to see the rest of the album art to see how the other concepts from that shoot were used, if indeed they were at all.

  118. I totally respect that he stayed true to himself- he has a musical and artisitic vision for himself and 19 let him go for it– thank you, 19 and good for Adam!

    If you don’t like the essence of glam rock, you may not like this cover, BUT it will keep you talking and that is what true art is all about!

  119. readon,

    one can only hope that there is a mostly naked Adam in the inside the album pics!!!

  120. My first reaction was that it was too feminine. Then I looked at it again and saw how gorgeous it is. Now that’s cover ART (and I stress the word art). Not just a simple pic of the artist. I don’t buy albums based on the cover. If the music is good people will buy it no matter what the cover looks like. Not many people buy/don’t buy an album based on the cover. Most people buy it because they have heard what is on it and like it.

    Shallow note: Doesn’t look like he’s wearing a shirt, hmm……

  121. It is a very sexy picture. I think he still exudes some testosterone in this artwork. It is gutsy and edgy. I love it. I love that about him.

  122. I love Adam for continually suprising us with everything he does. He definately knows how to get everyone’s attention!

    His eyes are so beautiful and intoxicating. I can see why this will turn some people off but I like it. I would love to be a fly on the wall when they were choosing which shot to use.

  123. NOOOO. I do not like it at ALL. *sobbing*

    Right there with you, Sue.

    So that earlier discussion about how impossible it is to strip away the innate and smoldering masculinity of Adam Lambert….Apparently it’s not hard at all.

    Sexy? Not even a little bit, IMHO. Pearl-clutching? About what? His emasculation? Glamorous? How? It’s a face shot with half gloves and neon coloring. This isn’t interesting, or innovative. Hoping the music will be.

    True to himself? How? He’s never, ever gone all feminine. In fact his whole point was not to, to have edge. Remember “I don’t do drag”.

    Where’s the idea? Creativity? Concept?

    Really, really, really, really dissappointed. On every level.

    I like it! It grabs your attention. And this is who Adam is.

    YEP. Adam would love this picture …. he is going for exactly that look for this album. Mundane he is not.

  126. first sight it is definitely a shock…..but suebrody, go back and look again if you can. The second look caused my heart to skip a beat. He is absolutely gorgeous, Gorgeous!!!!!
    and just how incredibly entertaining is this guy??? Constant suprise. I LOVE IT!

  127. one can only hope that there is a mostly naked Adam in the inside the album pics!!!


    4evrmomof4,
    the only way to justify this cover is to have, inside, snarling, WLL level, completely masculine pictures.

    That would at least have an idea.

  128. Well, it certainly doesn’t scream American Idol contestant, now does it? :)

  129. OMG – I LOVE the album cover. I LOVE that it’s very glam and androgynous. It reminds me a bit of Bowie’s Changes One cover. For those of you worried about it, I don’t know of anyone who judges an album entirely by its cover. It looks sexy and sultry and glam, just like he’s described some of the music to be. Yay!

  130. beehiway

    Glitter boy got balls made of moon rock,

    Absolutely. He’s going for it. Ok fans. He said he was going to take some risks. If you had been listening, you should have gotten scared then. He expects supports. Take a deep breath and look at the picture again. It. is. gorgeous.

  131. off to the new thread– bet there are masculine pics inside the album….

  132. suebrody:
    my favorite part has always been:

    Adam: I don’t think you could really dance to acoustic guitar.

    Kris: That’s.. a lie.

    See, THIS is why I love Kradam. I’m sorry, but their chemistry is just ADORABLE.

    It cracks me up that Kris sounds so…righteous when he says that. Like he’s personally offended by that comment, lol.

    In this video, you can hear Adam laugh when Kris says he likes to procrastinate, heh.

    Mitla96
    No matter what, with Adam, even when he is in drag, the testosterone is there. The boy can’t help it.

    Yup. And he’s still prettier than me, dammit.

    Based on those pics of Adam’s previous vampire-ish costumes, I’m expecting something much more elaborate as his true Glampire outfit. I prefer those to the Glittery Albino Deity look he was sporting last year–although that was certainly interesting!

  133. Well, it certainly doesn’t scream American Idol contestant, now does it?

    ITA – and that’s part of what I love about it! One of Adam’s largest hurdles is going to be climbing out from under the cheese-filled Idol brick, and this is certainly a step in that direction. Geez, he’s beautiful!

  134. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this…..Adam is gonna put a new name on the map of current music. I can’t wait!!!!!!

  135. Well, it certainly doesn’t scream American Idol contestant, now does it? :)

    I said that on Twitter, too. ;)

    Okay, off to new thread and to stop my heart from thudding. Need some reflective time. :)

  136. Adam is Adam that is glam rock look, can’t have the glam without the look. He knows and we have been told by Adam who and what he is in all respects. Why disappointed?. He is who he is regardless of what some want him to be or those who desire Adam to change. The cover is Adam, look back at his pre idol music. Cover is fantastic, hope the glam style of music follows. I am on board just what I expected. Love the cover. Love Adam for his honesty, he never tried to fool anyone or sell us anything different, we formed our our inner thoughts alone the way and a few got side-tracked.
    IMOHO

  137. So that earlier discussion about how impossible it is to strip away the innate and smoldering masculinity of Adam Lambert’ ¦.Apparently it’s not hard at all.

    I am very sad to say that I totally agree with you, FifthHouseSun.

  138. I don’t know what to think about this cover, may be I’ll cut out Detail’s cover picture or other favorites and put them over it. But I love the piercing blue eyes, though.

  139. If I had pearls on I would probably be clutching them. Holy sh…. Where is testosterone Adam? I can’t stop laughing. What the HELL, how the HELL are they going to market him?

    What was it that Kara said? It makes me feel “strange” “weird” “giddy” and I. LIKE. IT!

    Oh. My. God. Time to bring out the Kevlar for this evening – every troll hater on the planet must be heading for Adam threads and blogs …..As Bette said “It’s going to be a bumpy night”!

  140. suebrody
    October 27, 2009 at 5:35 pm

    I think everyone likes the cover on Twitter but me.

    I’m with you on this one Sue!
    I could pick any one of the dozens (..hundreds?) of photos from my “Adam folder” that I’d prefer. Elvis, emo, sexy, boyish, WLL, ToMT, Sebree ..hell, even NoLO ‘stache (I actually love those). I have always loved that the looks can be soooo different – but Adam still shines thru. Hate to say it, but my first impression of the cover was Glamour Shots from the mall.

  141. YEP. Adam would love this picture ‘ ¦. he is going for exactly that look for this album. Mundane he is not.

    But better than this he is. As I said in the other thread, this isn’t Bowie glam, it’s elementary glam, it “IDOL’glam”

    To me it screams “Hello I was on American Idol and I embraced the cheese”.

    Sorry, big, huge fan of Bowie as I am of Adam. This isn’t a Bowie cover (if that was indeed what he was shooting for). This is OTT trying too hard. Or an 80’s pic.

    I still like to purchase CD’s so I will have my own personal copy of this one day – behind a beautiful outrageous pic of Adam that isn’t all over the place.

  142. The picture is way to “gay” for me… I’m so not “homophobic” I really… REALLY stand by the… You are what/who you are, and I 100% believe that, so that doesn’t bother me, but BUT the cover is so “girly”.

    Is there a chance we’ll see some video from this party?

  143. Hell Lady Gaga’s covers are more artsy than this, more high fashion, less glam. IDEK not what I expected.
