    Speaking of Madonna, American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert ‘“ being honored for his Hotly Anticipated new album due this month ‘“ was still overheated by his recent encounter with the Material Girl. ‘My heart was racing. I think I broke into a cold sweat. I mean, she’s one of my idols,’  he admitted. ‘She just gave me some advice about being in the spotlight and how it can kind of throw you. And she just really said, in a nutshell, ‘Keep your eye on the prize and just ignore all the other energy that doesn’t actually support you.” 

  2. He looks beautiful. The mineral make-up is doing wonders for his skin. Lovely, lovely boy. Sweet boots too.

  3. TV Guide tweeted that both Adam and Kris would be attending this party. Seems like a great PR gig. I wonder why Kris was a no-show. Seems like a waste of a great opportunity.

    I totally agree, and by the articles and tweets, it seems Adam made a lot of new fans. There were some pretty cool celebs at the party too. I wonder what the publicists do when they follow Adam around at these things.

  5. People on twitter were @replying Kris wondering where he was. Hopefully nothing was the matter with him or Katy –that he simply just decided not to go. It is weird, because I think the blond woman in the car with Adam in one of these photos is Kris’ handler from 19E! So Kris’ handler was at the party bu he wasn’t. Weird.

    Anyway, Adam looks great. Nice tight pants!

  6. What a hottie! Looks like he is still flying solo too. Nice outfit (oh the pants).

  7. There is nothing more attractive/sexy to me than a person who is comfortable and loves themself. You can just see Adam’s confidence in this pics. He looks great!!

  8. Adam is whole bunches of pretty in those pictures!

    Did Adam switch to mineral make up? Something my obsessed self missed?

  9. The next day, his debut album, For Your Entertainment will be available everywhere.

    Everywhere in the US, you mean, right? Does anyone know when it’s set to hit stores internationally? How does it usually work?

  10. Another person impressed with Adam – I like her bio on Twitter

    met @adamlambert last night!!!! Ahhhh :DSo nice, such a hottie & I got a pic- I will post soon!! http://myloc.me/1s5wY

  11. That woman was with Adam at the 2012 premiere also. The press release said Adam had two contact people for PR, Roger and a woman, can’t remember her name, but it wasn’t the same person’s as Kris’s. Maybe they just look similar?

    Roger is his publicist from 19M (I think) and the woman is his publicist from RCA. Not likely she was Kris’s handler. Both of them were with Adam at the TII and 2012 red carpets.

  13. Help, I am sure 1 of you smart people can tell me how to ‘gift’ Adam’s album to my sister from ITunes (when I click on the album it says I have already ordered and doesn’t let me do anything else)
    to stay on topic Adam is so hot

  14. Not sure if it has been posted or not but his music video for time of miracles is up on the movie website now.

  15. I’m so glad Adam is back to having his hair styled the way he likes it to be styled. I’ve always liked the anime prince look on him better than the all-American boy thing Idol was going with.

  16. thanks for all the links to the pics …..

    .. he has soo pretty hair, eyes, smile and … ehrmmm …. pants.

    Nice to see that his appearace also causing a bit of a buzz on twitter too .. he seems to have such a presence where ever he goes

  17. If that woman is Adam’s publicist, ok. That makes much more sense! She looks A LOT like Kris’ handler, though, which is sort of funny to me. Don’t know why….I’m just odd, I guess.

  18. LOL, sparkles! Careful now. You’ll be giving away your age.*

    *Used to line inside of eyes back in day, too. Unfortunately, also wore Covergirl white undercover beneath eyes. Resembled raccoon. Thought was hot. Was incorrect.

    Squirrely, I’m ROTFLMA at that picture! Oh my God! Yes, Adam looks gorgeous, but it was a little bit of a shock to have him suddenly woOOOOMP! Up close and personal on my monitor! Gotta love the IDF gals!

    ETA: Girlygirl, I think (but don’t know for sure) that she handles both of them. She’s 19’s publicist – I THINK.

  19. It looks like Alisan Porter was left out last night. She tweets:

    Glad all my friends had a fun night last night.

    I don’t even get a phone call.

    I wonder if this is a little bit of the Drake LeBry syndrome.

    (posted in other thread by mistake but can’t delete the dup)

  20. Just maybe not Kris’ kind of thing. He strikes me as being more homebody and less party boy.

    Yeah he was probably home, pettin the dog, struming his geetar, yucking it up with this friends. Great idea! Words of advice to Kris…make these kinds of events your kind of thing because with your snoozefest of a personality you’ll rapidly fall into obscurity. Talented or not he needs to get out there.

  21. Tweets from last night.

    RT @samantharonson Just met @adamlambert, what a sweetheart. Can’t wait to hear his record!

    RT @ChadDarnell @adamlambert Really great meeting you tonight at the TV Guide Party. I hope that NCIS thing works out!

    RT @TheInfamousPJ Adam Lambert looks great and is so sweet. He is having a great time.

    RT @Busyphilipps25 Just had an amazing interaction with Adam Lambert. He knew he knew me from somewhere but couldn’t place it. Amazing.

    RT @TVGuideMagEIC: Just saw Adam Lambert talking to Busy Phillips and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

    RT @MegMasters Also, for the record, @adamlambert is one of the nicest, most sincere people I’ve ever had the pleasure of interviewing.

    RT @ClaudeKelly: @alexanderdeleon I’m supposed 2 tell @claudekelly that Adam lambert says ‘whaddup whaddup.’  He’s a really nice dude! We talked music. <==Tell Adam i said ‘Howdy!!!’ 

    RT @ScoobyDoo99: I just had an amazing interaction w/Adam Lambert. He thought he knew me from the cartoon network but wasn’t sure. Amazing.

    RT @Busyphilipps25 I tried to find the pic of me and adam lambert and @jessetyler from last night but no dice. If you find it- post it!!!

    @jessetyler @Busyphilipps25 @adamlambert oh yeah! I second that search!

  22. Adam I now #11 on itunes overall charts’ ¦Jason Mraz went ahead of him. I guess that means his Album is #2 on pop even though it does not show that yet.

  23. Squirrely, I’m ROTFLMA at that picture! Oh my God! Yes, Adam looks gorgeous, but it was a little bit of a shock to have him suddenly woOOOOMP! Up close and personal on my monitor! Gotta love the IDF gals!

    Lol. That surprised me too! They are very good pictures! I love the outfit and the whole look.

  24. It is weird, because I think the blond woman in the car with Adam in one of these photos is Kris’ handler from 19E! So Kris’ handler was at the party bu he wasn’t. Weird.

    girlygirl, she is also Adam’s handler. She was at a number of places with Adam including the CBS concert in NYC and the 2012 premiere. She was at the early tour concerts with Adam too.

  25. HOW DID I MISS THIS THREAD??? ;)

    humongous Adam photo ‘“ very very very good closeup

    http://idolforums.com/index.php?showtopic=594571&st=19820#

    *flailing*

    THIS ONE GOES ON MY WALL.

    And his hair…oh, please, keep the hair this way, Adam. No more Pirate!Adam or Elvis!Adam (tho James Dean!Adam was okay). Oh, my, ra. So many sweeet pictures, contacts made (perhaps interviews?!). Happy happy joy joy.

    ETA: Is it just me, or did Slezak sound less than enthralled with the snippets? To be fair, he is already a fan of Sleepwalker, Aimee’s track, so TWO THUMBS UP (he thinks it should be a single, YESSSS) for Slezak.

  26. Jericho

    YMMV, of course, but it’s clear in my mind that Kris doesn’t have a snoozefest of a personality. He’s very funny and snarky. He’s just not always shown that in some of his interviews, and he can be a bit inarticulate at times. Check out his banter with the crowd, Cale and his brother in the videos from his concert Sunday night — he was very relaxed, having a great time and the crowd was responding very well to his remarks (although he still mumbles too much). It seems to me that comfort level is a big deal with Kris — the more comfortable he is, the more he lets his personality come through. Adam, on the other hand, seems to be one of those lucky people who can be comfortable in just about any situation.

    Kris shouldn’t be forced to go to these things if he doesn’t want to. Yes, it would be a good opportunity publicitywise and to mingle with some people in the entertainment business, but, in the end, it’s his choice.

  27. Three new confirmations for AMA; Lil Wayne, Eminem and Whitney Houston.

  28. she is also Adam’s handler. She was at a number of places with Adam including the CBS concert in NYC and the 2012 premiere. She was at the early tour concerts with Adam too.

    I don’t think they share any staff. With both of them having appearances and committments, sometimes in different parts of the country, how would that work?

  29. I get the sense that Kris is very chill and might not love these events, but it still seems like it would be good for him to get out and about a little more, besides his gigs. Did Cook go? Archie? Archie always seemed so shy in public, tho less so now, so that’s why I wonder.

    I can never get enough pics of Adam. If his hair is styled in this more au natural style.

    So…am I the only one that thought Slezak’s review of Adam’s snippets was lukewarm?

  30. Three new confirmations for AMA; Lil Wayne,

    Isn’t he in jail?

  31. So’ ¦am I the only one that thought Slezak’s review of Adam’s snippets was lukewarm?

    If you didn’t expect that you should have.

    All this hype Adam gets is fine but hype tends to move on if you can’t back it up with something tangible. Unless you want to be like Paris Hilton and turn yourself into something of a joke.

  32. So’ ¦am I the only one that thought Slezak’s review of Adam’s snippets was lukewarm?

    I wasn’t expecting high praise. For Allison’s I’m expecting backflips from him.

  33. Kris tweeted that he was at the Matt Kearney concert last night. That’s why he wasn’t at the tv guide party.

  34. So’ ¦am I the only one that thought Slezak’s review of Adam’s snippets was lukewarm?

    Yeah, I thought that too. Which is cool and fine and no, I never look at the comments sections for Adam articles. And I agreed with him on the least awesome songs, though we disagreed on some other stuff, but I’m mostly there with his ranking. I will say though that as I’ve said before, “What Do You Want From Me,” runs through my mind a lot more than I thought it would given how generic I thought it was. In fact, I was trying to remember a Kris song I liked after listening to his album(because I was getting a Chinese food effect from it) and I was like, ‘see, there is a Kris song that stayed with me,’ and then I realized it was WDYWFM. Whoops.

  35. It thought Slezak was very positive actually, more than I expected. I do want some objectivity from reviewers.

  36. I thought Slezak gave a fair and positive review of the snippets. (really they are just snippets. I really got more from him then I even would have said about them) He liked 9, meh about 1, and 2 not so much. Seems to me to be an endorsement rather then a put down. IMHO. I fully agree with him that final judgment can not be passed until the songs are heard in full. I am happy with his review.

  37. Is it just me, or did Slezak sound less than enthralled with the snippets? To be fair, he is already a fan of Sleepwalker, Aimee’s track, so TWO THUMBS UP (he thinks it should be a single, YESSSS) for Slezak.

    Not your imagination sue. Michael and Jim always seem more reserved for Adam than for Kris.

    Adam looked amazing at the TV Guide party. He just carries himself like a star IMO. So fashioable and gorgeous.

  38. I too thought that it was a pretty positive review from Slezak .. very fair.

    It’s rare that you’ll get an album where you love all the tracks and I thought his comments were very just .. some tracks he seemed really impressed with and others not so much.. but the one’s he wasn’t sure about he hinted that he would need to hear a bit more of them and that he was interested in doing so.

  39. I guess it doesn’t matter till the album comes out, anyway. FYE is growing on me, but I really didn’t like it all. I def didn’t like TfM’s snippet, and now I *love* it. I know that Sleepwalker, Broken Up, and Soaked will be favorites, however. I think I will like Pick U Up (except the cutesy U). Otherwise, I reserve judgment.

    BTW, Pro-FM in Providence, RI (I am streaming it) is giving way tickets to the AMAs!!! *fingers crossed*

    I’ll read Slezak’s column again, to be fair…

  40. I also read it as very positive but I dont know how he usually reviews. I would have put strut higher though. :grin:

  41. Three new confirmations for AMA; Lil Wayne, Eminem and Whitney Houston.

    Dude, how many more performances can they possibly cram into this award ceremony? I guess they are going all out this year.
    I cant wait to see what Adam will do…so exciting.
    IMO Eminem’s current stuff is underwhelming and not as good as his previous songs..
    Im really not looking forward to seeing Lil Wayne with his shirt off and his pants under his ass running around the stage…I like some of his songs but his live performances are poorly coordinated (from an aesthetic standpoint) imo…
    Whitney Houston’s voice is a shadow of what it once was..its very sad and I hope she doesnt embarrass herself on national television…shit like that could potentially overshadow the other performances.
    I wont say anymore since I dont want to jinx it LOL

  42. So’ ¦am I the only one that thought Slezak’s review of Adam’s snippets was lukewarm?

    I thought he was really complimentary on many of the songs. I really wouldn’t describe it as lukewarm at all. It’s hard to say too much about a snippet anyway.

    The first few comments are dumb and unrelated to the article though.

    The comments sections on those articles are nothing but another rehashing of the same petty fanwars with the same ridiculous buzzwords those people use over and over. Some of those AI uber-fans should find some more productive things to do with their days, other than making fools of themselves all over the interwebs.

  43. I will say though that as I’ve said before, ‘What Do You Want From Me,’  runs through my mind a lot more than I thought it would given how generic I thought it was. In fact, I was trying to remember a Kris song I liked after listening to his album(because I was getting a Chinese food effect from it) and I was like, ‘see, there is a Kris song that stayed with me,’ and then I realized it was WDYWFM. Whoops.

    LOL this is happening to me too. I can’t get that stupid song out of my head, the hook on that song is incredible.

  44. What is Matt Kearney’s connection to Kris?

    I think Kris made a mistake by not attending the TV Guide party last night. I think the visibility would have done him a lot of good.

  45. Slezak’s review was actually better than I was expecting. I came away feeling like he liked most of the tracks. And, you have to remember, he was reviewing 30 sec. snippets (some of them starting up at weird places). I kind of agree with most of his ranking, although Pick U Up has grown on me a lot, as has What Do You Want From Me.

  46. AMA’s will have 18 performances, I made a list the other day and all but 5 had been announced, now I think only 2 left to disclose.

    Adam Lambert
    Carrie Underwood
    Kelly Clarkson
    Daughtry
    Jay-Z, Alicia Keys
    Jennifer Lopez
    Shakira
    Rihanna
    Green Day
    Eminen
    Lil’ Wayne
    Whitney Houston
    Mary J. Blige
    Lady GaGa
    The Black Eyed Peas
    Keith Urban

  47. Three new confirmations for AMA; Lil Wayne,

    Isn’t he in jail?

    Lil Wayne won’t be sentenced until February, he just plead out.

  48. i didnt get “lukewarm” AT ALL. it seemed to me he had the exact same reaction that a lot of adam FANS had… loved almost all but was meh about a few of them. plus the two or three that he picked on (pick you up, and what do you want from me) were the ones that a lot of us put at the bottom of our list, too. i dont see what the big deal is.

    in no way did i expect him to gush about all of them, nor do they deserve to ALL be gushed about. uber fans might love all of them (i certainly do) but there is no way i would expect idol bloggers, and especially ‘real’ critics to lose their minds over every track.

    im sure even the RS fan club will have some songs they dont absolutely love.

  49. Dude, how many more performances can they possibly cram into this award ceremony? I guess they are going all out this year.

    That’s what I’m wondering. How effing long is this show? At least it shouldn’t be boring.

    I thought Slezak was really positive about the snippets. He didn’t write any of them off, and starting with If I Had You had positive reactions to all of them.

  50. AMA’s will have 18 performances

    That is fucking insane…even though the VMAs used to have a lot of performances, prob something close to this but now a days award shows dont have that many do they?

  51. From the top of his head to the tips of his toes, Adam’s lookin’ good.

    I thought Michael’s review was pretty good, and for the most part I agreed with his ranking order. I would have changed a few around. Now of course for Allison’s, I expect his review to be off the hook.

  52. How effing long is this show? At least it shouldn’t be boring.

    Good question…but you are definitely right about the not boring part :)

  53. in no way did i expect him to gush about all of them, nor do they deserve to ALL be gushed about. uber fans might love all of them (i certainly do) but there is no way i would expect idol bloggers, and especially ‘real’ critics to lose their minds over every track.

    Ha. Lets see if he doesn’t gush about all of Allison’s tracks. lol Michael S. has his favorites like everyone else.

  54. I like Slezak’s review! Because I seem to have completely different taste in music than he does, I’d take his top to bottom list and pretty much flip it upside down and shake a few songs into a different order. (Broken Open is my favorite by far.) But, that’s okay. I bet Polly was pleased!

  55. Brian has his numbers up TfM did 9,000 more. He’s also is doubting Adam’s public appeal. I do wish FYE did better, but I think a lot of other factors played into – I still don’t think the AO numbers are being counted but whatever – I’m buying his record and if he has to have his big shows overseas then I will have some traveling to do.

  56. Brian has his numbers up TfM did 9,000 more. He’s also is doubting Adam’s public appeal. I do wish FYE did better, but I think a lot of other factors played into ‘“ I still don’t think the AO numbers are being counted but whatever

    Brian also wrote that he thought the sales for FYE were for less than a week. So that means the AO and Amazon downloads are not included?

  57. I thought Brian’s article was pretty good. It showed concerns for both Kris and Adam but it also pointed out that he thought Adam was coming out of the gate on sales better than kris. Overall, it was one of the fairest analysis I have seen by ANYONE in a while.

  58. Okay, I read Slezak’s review again (HEY, MJ, ANOTHER LINK TO YOU!!!). It wasn’t great, it wasn’t bad. I guess I also would have placed some differently (e.g., I like Pick U Up, but he does not). If he does not gush over every single Alli single, I may have to color my hair pink, too. Oh, wait; I already have purplish highlights. Whew. ;)

    LLWD is getting a spin on PRO-FM in Providence! Am waiting for FYE, b/c they play it (they are HAC) and Mix in Boston does not.

    Now I have to read Brian’s analysis….I guess…

    Seriously, at this point, I just enjoy looking at Adam pictures! He will sell what he sells; we can’t control that. I am not going to wring my hands anymore, that’s for sure.

    ETA: Squirrely, ITA. Have Adam concert, WILL travel.

  59. Maybe I’m just projecting – I’ll go look at more pretty Adam pictures.

  60. “Michael (Slezak) and Jim (Cantiello) always seem more reserved for Adam than for Kris.”

    :) When Michael talks to Kris Michael’s faces gets all red beet, flush, and cute. Jim said that he met Kris he felt so comfortable around him it was like he had known him all his life. Like an old friend. I noticed that Kris has that effect. Ryan would always put his arm around Kris and joked with him on the show. He didn’t do that with many of the other contestants.

  61. I liked the Brian article as well. I found it pretty level-headed especially because he mentioned what is, imho at least, the biggest obstacles that Adam and Kris are facing and that is having t compete with acts like Rhianna, John Mayer and Shakira who are already established and do have a larger fan base. That is tough competition.
    Adam’s album is doing really good in Pre-sales and hopefully will continue to seel once it comes out…The issue with FYE sales has to do with a lot of things…its not been out very long and Itunes was having problems when it had just come out. It also hasnt received a lot of promo.
    Im going to stay optimistic about everything because Adam has everything it takes to be successful.

  62. I have no concern about the numbers for the singles at this point.

    TfM was purchased by Adam fans, and probably no one else (relatively speaking). The movie isn’t out yet, it is getting no radio play, it is not on the general public’s radar at all. If a movie song becomes a “hit” it will happen after the movie is out. Not saying this song’s a hit, just that the ordinary person who isn’t on the internet reading Adam and Cavallo interviews or listening to Brian May talk does not know this song exists—yet.

    FYE is so new. Radio play is not significant enough yet to be bringing in the general public. It isn’t on the radar yet. It will take time, or at least until the AMA’s. If RCA was interested in a splashy entrance, they wouldn’t have made the single available on AO.

    The only place where I can maybe see RCA miscalculating a bit is with the radio roll-out. I think, because Adam seems to have moved beyond–way beyond–the AI stigma in the eyes of the media and the industry, RCA expected the same from radio stations. That hasn’t happened–he is going to have to “earn” the spins just like everybody else. When the KISS station in Chicago first played the single, they didn’t immediately tell listeners who was singing because of what he called, “preconceived notions”

  63. Ryan would always put his arm around Kris and joked with him on the show. He didn’t do that with many of the other contestants.

    Maybe all the others were taller than Ryan and it would have been awkward?

  64. It is weird, because I think the blond woman in the car with Adam in one of these photos is Kris’ handler from 19E! So Kris’ handler was at the party bu he wasn’t. Weird.

    girlygirl, she is also Adam’s handler. She was at a number of places with Adam including the CBS concert in NYC and the 2012 premiere. She was at the early tour concerts with Adam too.

    The girl in the car is Lane Newland, she is Adam’s daily manager/assistant.
    I chatted with her briefly at the last concert in Manchester, she is very nice, very young. I was kind of bowled over with the feeling that she must have – at the moment anyway, one of the best – to me – jobs in the world! I was green! She gets to go with Adam everywhere, the concerts, recordings, junkets, premieres (she was also in many of the 2012 ‘red’ carpet photos and interviews) etc. She said Adam was a nice guy, but seemed quite detached and blase about it. So I thought to myself, she’s too young, doesn’t know what she’s got………
    Oh can you just imagine what one of us calm, reasonable mature and professional ladies would make of that job!!!!!!!!

  65. “Slezak’s review was fair. I hate the comment section though.”

    Whenever I read the nasty comments, I think of 12 year olds trying to outdo each other

  66. “Maybe all the others were taller than Ryan and it would have been awkward?”

    nah, he just liked Kris. He even said when he introduced Kris when he sang SWHFTM “You’re gonna like this”.

  67. Whenever I read the nasty comments, I think of 12 year olds trying to outdo each other

    Don’t you hate to that. It is really sad when people do that. Imagine what it is like if a contestant wanted to see their reviews and there is a bunch of stupid remarks on there.

  68. I got the feeling Ryan had a tighter connection to Adam. But on a whole I think everyone on Idol connected with Kris. As for Jim and Slezak I think it’s their own uneasiness and doubts about Adam’s talent that makes them uneasy around Adam, based on the bazillion other interviews of Adam with other people everyone one of them seem like old friends and buddies.

  69. you people are a tough audience!!!! Slezaks “review” if you can call it that was pretty darn great! He liked most of the songs and some he was really excited about. It is interesting that among the usual idoloonie bloggers they all have different least favorites and favorites (but they ALL love Music Again), just like on this board…i think that bodes well for the album

  70. Adam tweets:

    @samantharonson so great to hang out last night!!

    What is Matt Kearney’s connection to Kris?

    I think Kris made a mistake by not attending the TV Guide party last night. I think the visibility would have done him a lot of good.

    I disagree. What is Kris’s connection to TV Guide? He may have had his start on national television, but he seems to be intent on promoting himself on music-related gigs like the Napa Valley gig and all these radio shows he has been calling into. And besides, Kris just did the red carpet and interviews at the People’s Choice Nominations. He got visibility there.

    I also think it was great that Kris went to see Mat Kearney perform. He deserves a break after the series of gigs he’s been doing recently. Mat is a great musician and he and Kris have grown to be quite close. IMO, establishing connections in the music industry goes a much longer way than making an appearance at a party.

    That said, Adam looks fab as usual in those pics. I love how he accessorizes.

  72. aa61889 (accidentally deleted the last number but you know who you are!)

    I thought Michael’s review was great! Where are you getting that is was lukewarm? He seemed to like some tracks more than others just like everyone else. He also seemed to loooove several of them. I didn’t see anything negative. Am I crazy?

    No you are definitely not crazy. I thought it was a great review. He liked most of the tracks and is eager to hear more, plus I enjoyed reading the piece. I think some people are reading more into it than is written due to a preconceived notion that Michael is not a big Adam fan which may or may not be true, but if he does have a bias he didn’t portray it in this article. He gave every snippet a fair shake.

  73. FINALLY! FYE is playing on PRO-FM in Providence!!! I was about to call–sersly, I had started to call–and then they started playing it!!!! First time I have heard it on the radio. It sounds AWESOME!!!

    LOL have you guys seen how many twitter followers this girl has?
    Adam is so smart :) He does his own marketing very well. He should fire his peeps and do his own thing ;)

    She tweeted about him too so that was cool! And she is a well known LA DJ she can spin his record at parties.

  76. Samantha Ronson is following Adam now

    # @adamlambert so fun! Xo 9 minutes ago from UberTwitter in reply to adamlambert

    ETA: her twitter pic is of her and DJ AM :( rip

    Just met @adamlambert, what a sweetheart. Can’t wait to hear his record! about 14 hours ago from UberTwitter

  77. Ryan likes Kris…..not really sure because he dissed him after he won and during the Conan interview. But I do agree that Kris is likeable. Adam is the love him or hate him guy (not only like).

  78. samantha ronson is best known for her on again off again with Lindsey Lohan
    so between the 2 of them maybe Adam’s music will be listen to by more people

    CNN interview from 2012 ‘“ you have click on Adam’s picture for his parts ‘“ there is an interview around 22:17:17″

    Fantastic interview..he is so funny and has such a great personality…so comfortable with himself…not many people have this…

    Thank you for bringing it

    I love the way the interviewer keep trying to get him to sing.

    CNN guy: I want to learn how the song goes.
    Adam: Then you have to buy it on iTunes.
    CNN guy starts to sing “We are the Champions,” wants Adam to sing, too
    Adam: This is an interview not a concert.

    LOL

    Thank you for this link the interview was hilarious…the guy conducting the interview tried so hard to get Adam to sing and he wouldnt LOL it was cute and Adam handled it well.

  82. What is Kris’s connection to TV Guide?

    I think you have a misconception about last night’s TV Guide party. These types of events are for the attendees to network; be seen; be talked about; make connections. It wasn’t just a party were everyone stands around awkwardly with drink in hand leaning up against a back wall. These types of parties are extremely important to attend for new and upandcoming singers and actors. The contacts that someone can make at one of these events can be invaluable to one’s career. Kris could have gone after the concert. Very poor choice on his part for not attending.

  83. Adam made a few contacts and made some lasting impressions based on the tweets that were flying about on twitter. It would have been good publicity for Kris to go, but whatever he will do his own thing, the same as Adam.

  84. I agree, jericho, but I wonder if Kris is just not the type to go to these parties. I would have thought his handler would have insisted he do it–maybe after the Mat Kearney performance–but I guess not. Look how many people tweeted about Adam after the party. Wouldn’t some of them have tweeted about Kris, too, given how personable (if laid back) he is?

    Adam just looks so hot in these pics. Oh, the hair. I love the hair so much.

  85. ok I know so far most of the covers of Adams songs have sucked especially the FYE ones but I found a really cool cover of “Time for Miracles”…I think its very close to what Adam has said the original demo version was like and I loved the feel of it…and the dude is a fan :)

  86. New tweet from Samantha Ronson:

    @adamlambert so fun! Xo34 minutes ago from UberTwitter in reply to adamlambert

    Well, that worked!!!

  87. I think Kris made a mistake by not attending the TV Guide party last night. I think the visibility would have done him a lot of good.

    I disagree. What is Kris’s connection to TV Guide? He may have had his start on national television, but he seems to be intent on promoting himself on music-related gigs like the Napa Valley gig and all these radio shows he has been calling into.

    I agree. Kris has been working hard promoting his song to radio. That seems a lot more important than showing up at a “Hot” something party. These things are a dime a dozen in LA. Adam should take a page out of Kris’ book.

  88. “the guy conducting the interview tried so hard to get Adam to sing and he wouldnt LOL it was cute and Adam handled it well”

    can you imagine what would have happened if Adam started singing “We are the champions” in the middle of that crowd…he would have looked like a real jerk…not that he could ever in my book

  89. OMG. If Adam HAD started singing, I would have cringed a thousand cringes! It would have been so tacky. I’m breathing a sigh of relief that Adam knows better!

  90. can you imagine what would have happened if Adam started singing ‘We are the champions’  in the middle of that crowd’ ¦he would have looked like a real jerk

    More like an ass…that was a really stupid request LOL.

  91. CNN interview from 2012 ‘“ you have click on Adam’s picture for his parts ‘“ there is an interview around 22:17:17

    OMG he’s so adorable! seriously.. what a flirt

  92. “I agree. Kris has been working hard promoting his song to radio. That seems a lot more important than showing up at a ‘Hot’  something party. These things are a dime a dozen in LA. Adam should take a page out of Kris’ book.”

    I really hope all these radio interviews do help Kris in the long run…so far they haven’t seemed to make a difference

  93. The CNN guy interviewing Adam was the biggest idiot ever. I can’t get over that he pushed Adam’s shoulder to spin him around.

  94. Haha, that cover was lovely! It’s a really pretty song, would love to hear a soft acosutic version like this by Adam. I actually think it works really well in this vulnerable arrangement.

  95. The CNN guy interviewing Adam was the biggest idiot ever. I can’t get over that he pushed Adam’s shoulder to spin him around.

    Ok good I’m not the only one bothered by that. I felt he was trying to make Adam look foolish but Adam handled him well. And I like how Adam didn’t allow him to just dismiss him, the interviewer was an ass.

  96. I loved the way Adam dealt with CNN guy. Just laughed and was gracious. WTG, Adam. That’s the way to get the press to talk favorably about you (not that it shouldn’t).

    I would LOVE to hear an acoustic TfM. Boy, would that show off his vocal range. *sigh*

  97. ‘I agree. Kris has been working hard promoting his song to radio. That seems a lot more important than showing up at a ‘Hot’  something party. These things are a dime a dozen in LA. Adam should take a page out of Kris’ book.‘ 

    Yeah, cuz it has worked out so well for Kris so far.

  98. ‘I agree. Kris has been working hard promoting his song to radio. That seems a lot more important than showing up at a ‘Hot’  something party. These things are a dime a dozen in LA. Adam should take a page out of Kris’ book.’ 

    I disagree, but they are two different types of personalities. I think Adam is doing just fine to date. And Adam isn’t doing radio gigs because he hasn’t been GIVEN radio gigs to do. You don’t show up to a station and say, Hey, can you please interview me today? No, it’s arranged for you by the record company. OTOH, if TV Guide offers you the chance to be seen, you take it. Or not. Maybe it won’t matter. But to say Adam hasn’t been busy with promotion is inaccurate.

    ETA: Squirrely, is Adam in a hoodie? ;)

  99. I disagree. What is Kris’s connection to TV Guide?

    Well, he was on TV all last spring and won the most watched reality show on TV.
    TV Guide does write articles about reality show personalities-both past and present. It’s Kris’ choice, he didn’t have to go. But, Adam being at a TV Guide party makes just as much sense as Kris being at one.

    samantha ronson is best known for her on again off again with Lindsey Lohan

    She’s also a well-known LA DJ with over a million twitter followers. Getting to know Samantha Ronson and impressing her can’t hurt!

  100. These things are a dime a dozen in LA. Adam should take a page out of Kris’ book.’ 

    No… actually he shouldn’t. They are two completely different types of people and artists. Adam is going for global success while Kris might be happy just opening the local piggly wiggly in Little Rock…..

    I really hope all these radio interviews do help Kris in the long run’ ¦so far they haven’t seemed to make a difference

    Kris saw a nice increase in sales last week so the radio gigs might be kickin in but that still doesn’t mean Adam should follow his lead. Adam is in fact about more than just the music.

  101. I agree. Kris has been working hard promoting his song to radio. That seems a lot more important than showing up at a ‘Hot’  something party. These things are a dime a dozen in LA. Adam should take a page out of Kris’ book.

    Huh? Hasn’t Adam been working hard prepping for his performance on the AMA awards? You can do both. Check out the entertainment magazines. Some very high profile, yet very, very busy people show up for these types of events to not only network but to get themselves photographed and have those pics placed in entertainment magazines. One picture in US Weekly with the caption “Adam Lambert attends the such-and-such party. His new album will be released on November 23” is a pretty nice piece of marketing.

    And lest anyone think that schmoozing with TV folks is a waste of time for a musician, having a song of yours used on the music track of a television show is an important way to move your music. Just ask The Fray.

    Obviously, it was up to Kris. I don’t think he made a bad choice. But, just because Kris opted not to go hardly means Adam was in the wrong to do so – or that Adam is wasting time going to parties while poor Kris is wearing himself to a pulp doing call-ins on radio stations. Adam’s been non-stop since the tour ended.

  102. I really hope all these radio interviews do help Kris in the long run’ ¦so far they haven’t seemed to make a difference

    How do we know that they aren’t part of what’s causing more stations to pick up play of LLWD? Songs really don’t get anywhere just based on merit. Elbow grease, such as showing up for station-led events and to on-air interviews to help them fill their air time with something interesting, tend to be very much a part of the deal.

  103. Adam is going for global success while Kris might be happy just opening the local piggly wiggly in Little Rock’ ¦..

    That cracked me the hell up. But truthfully – I think Kris would be fine with that. I think he wants to make a living with his music but don’t want the fame.

  104. luv I don’t think he expected to win when the whole thing started.

  105. PRO-FM just talked about the AMAs and who would the djays like to see perform. Well, Lady GaGa…Adam Lambert…

    I almost fell out of my chair.

  106. I loved the pics from this event. I also liked Michael’s review. I thought he gave Adam kudos repeatedly for his vocal ability and really only commented negatively on some of the arrangements. Pretty good overall. I also have to agree with some earlier in this thread, I can’t get What Do You Want From Me out of my head. Keeps wandering around in there. I do have a question, though. How many songs does Adam get to sing at the GMA show? I think someone said three but not sure. Anyone know?

  107. Thanks for the CNN link-ADAM LAMBERT CNN 2012 INTERVIEW Adam is quite savvy in handling the CNN guy’s funny way of trying to get Adam to sing a snippet of TFM .

    And Adam personifies the name of this party – TV Guide’s Hot List He sure can lead the list . He sure looks like a top hot lister.

  108. He should learn at least one more pose. Bump up his pose repertoire up to 3.

  109. HA – I think Kris’ ambition reaches well beyond playing the local Piggly Wiggly!

    But I don’t think he’s much of a party boy. If his management has any real issue with him not going to this TV Guide thing last night, they should talk to him about it. Otherwise, no big deal.

  110. saga

    Huh? I think Adam is only going to perform one song at the AMAs…his single. Most performers at these award shoes only perform one song. Sometimes two — if they are a huge act or they are going one of those musical tributes to so-and-so…

  111. I vote for FYE, Strut, and Soaked OR Sleepwalker. Come on, I HAD to put Sleepwalker in there. ;)

  112. No, girlygirl, we are talking about the GMAs. He only does FYE at the AMAs. I bet they can barely fit that one in. They have something like 20 performers. How they will show everyone is beyond me. So I guess it’s good if Adam goes early on, so he doesn’t get rushed, and they don’t cut his performance short (or out) if they run out of time.

    ETA: http://92profm.com/goout.asp?u=http://www.tunegenie.com/tophits/wpro/

    Adam is on their playlist on the Pro FM homepage.

  113. Adam is going for global success while Kris might be happy just opening the local piggly wiggly in Little Rock’ ¦..

    I think both of them are pretty much going for the same thing, which is to be able to sustain themselves with their music, and make the kind of music they like. And I wish them both well in this. Given the similiar and crappy numbers, not like Adam is being globally successful right now, he has just as much of a shot at opening the Piggly Wiggly at this point. Though I think it would be more interesting to see FYE performed at a Piggly Wiggly, than an acoustic song from Kris. The lulz factor would definitely be higher.

    And yeah, why be mean to poor Adam on his skinny jeans. It’s not his fault. It’s a fashionable trend, he’s a fashionable guy, not his fault he has CDs in his pocket.

  114. Girlygirl Saga is talking about the GMA performance. I’m for Soaked, FYE, Fever. I’m more excited about this (but very excited about AMAs).

  115. Yeah, cuz it has worked out so well for Kris so far.

    Kris is doing what all new artists have to do to get radio play. The fact that his sales are lagging isn’t due to lack of effort. I get the feeling RCA doesn’t think Adam needs to do such a lowly form of promotion. They might want to rethink that after looking at some actual numbers. Both sales numbers and radio spins and adds.

    Huh? Hasn’t Adam been working hard prepping for his performance on the AMA awards?

    I’m sure he has and I hope it works out since he doesn’t seem to have any other kind of promo in mind.

    My point with these “hot list” parties is that there’s a new one every week and at some point they can backfire on you. All this “hot” stuff going on doesn’t mean much if you can’t back it up with some “hot” numbers.

  116. Though I think it would be more interesting to see FYE performed at a Piggly Wiggly, than an acoustic song from Kris. The lulz factor would definitely be higher.

    THIS!

    I am also more excited about the AMAs, I have to admit, b/c:

    1) He can play more than one song;
    2) It’s HIS concert;
    3) The album will have DROPPED!!!

  117. Hmm, I guess I could go for FYE, STRUT and FEVER if we are to keep it all upbeat.

  118. Great pictures and nice CNN interview of Adam.

    As for Kris, he just did the PCA announcement yesterday morning which gave him media exposure. I think if he felt like to take break, attend a concert and social with the musicians he can relate to, why not?

    I bet both Adam and Kris had a good time.

  119. Hmm, I guess I could go for FYE, STRUT and FEVER if we are to keep it all upbeat.

    I’m flexible this will work too.

    Adam and his penis enjoy a night out with Samantha Ronson:

    “http://socialitelife.celebuzz.com/archive/2009/11/11/adam_lambert_and_his_penis_enjoy_a_night_out_with_samantha_ronson.php

    The man is packing ‘“ he can’t help it.

    I don’t see Kris in this headline’ ¦hee hee.

    And hey, he is doing his own thang and Adam his and I hope both are successful.”

    Love the comments after this article (if it could be called an article)..all seem to be in favor of the Glambulge

  121. Natasha
    All this ‘hot’  stuff going on doesn’t mean much if you can’t back it up with some ‘hot’  numbers.

    Fake it till you make it!

  122. Samantha Ronson also has a blog and she had LLWD as her Song of the Day pik on that a couple of weeks back. She actually had to defend her choice on twitter, because people were tweeting her wondering why she would pick that song. She was like “because I really like the song”

    So she is now a fan of both Kris and Adam…

  123. I bet for GMA he does FYE and TfM (the movie will be out by then). But, what a strange comboination that will be, lol.

  124. The man is packing ‘“ he can’t help it.

    Squirrely- I’m glad you said it. I was thinking it (alot)

  125. Adam hung out with Cassidy last night too –

    cassidyhaley

    @adamlambert hey babe! Good to see you last night!

  126. I adore Adam and I wandered into this thread to check out his appearance st the TVGuide party and I see so many insults directed towards Kris. I know that it is everyone’s right to diss Kris as this is not a fan site but I just want you Adam fans to know that you aren’t doing Adam any favors by alienating Kris’s fan base. I am not really a fan of Adam’s style but I still like him a lot as a person and respect his talent. I even bought his single just to show him my support but sometimes his fans are so darn mean that I actually find myself hoping that he will fail just so that they will get a taste of humble pie. I suppose that this will be deleted since it is against the rules to talk about other posters but,in any case, I just wish that you all could see that you are hurting Adam far more than you are helping him.

  127. Oops, yes, GMAs, gah, sorry, luv.

    I want one slow song. Soaked, Sleepwalker, OR Broken Up would do it for me. But I bet it’s Soaked, b/c they can drop Muse in there. I have the feeling they will break it up with one slow song. But you know, I’m good with whatever. I mean, it’s ADAM.

    My point with these ‘hot list’  parties is that there’s a new one every week and at some point they can backfire on you

    How so?

  128. Kris is doing what all new artists have to do to get radio play. The fact that his sales are lagging isn’t due to lack of effort. I get the feeling RCA doesn’t think Adam needs to do such a lowly form of promotion. They might want to rethink that after looking at some actual numbers. Both sales numbers and radio spins and adds.

    I think they miscalculated and I personally think they’re still miscalculating if they expect the AMAs to solve everything. It won’t. And the single and album will slowly sink in sales, like TfM did, and LLWD did before LLWD had enough spins to at least sustain it and get some growth. I don’t see enough foundation for Adam being put in right now, to sustain good sales. AMAs being the magic bullet of everything, aside.

  129. So I guess the general agreement is that Adam does get to sing three songs at GMA? That I am REALLY looking forward to!! Is it possible that Adam has been low profile (except for this event) because he is working on a video for FYE? and do they have videos for all the songs or just some? sorry about so many questions, this is new to me…

  130. My point with these ‘hot list’  parties is that there’s a new one every week

    Really? There is a Hot TV Guide party like this one EVERY week? Where are the pictures from those?

    he has just as much of a shot at opening the Piggly Wiggly at this point.

    Or Adam could give that Broadway producer from “Spiderman” a call. Maybe he would have to stoop as low as being the lead singer for Queen and having to tour around the world. Perhaps Aerosmith might let him try out.
    As funny as Adam singing FYE at Piggly Wiggly would be, I believe he has far more options available to him since the end of AI.

  131. So wait — did Kris go to the Mat Kearney concert? I thought I saw something saying this further back in the comments

  132. girlygirl, someone did post that Kris went to Mat Kearney last night. I don’t remember him tweeting about it, tho…did he, anyone? I know they are now friends, since they were writing together.

    I assume Kris, Adam, and Allison all get three songs.

  133. oladyrocklover, I agree that as a rule, dissing one person to rise up the other, isn’t my preferred method and that it’s not terribly useful in my book. But then I’m a fan of both Kris’s and Adam’s and want them both to do well. It’s not a zero sum game to me, Adam’s being (hopefully) successful doesn’t have to come at the expense of Kris. I want both to be successful in their own chosen ways.

    That being said, if Kris’s and Adam’s success comes that the expense of Subo, I might have to admit to being a hypocrite and rooting for that to happen. Or having Kris and Adam be successful instead of say, Miley Cyrus or Taylor Swift? I’d be all for that. But then I think all of those women are overrated and can’t really sing. I don’t feel that say for Adam or Kris (or Allison for that matter).

  134. He IS a hot number!

    He and Kris are so different in every way that the comparisons strike me as a little crazy. The only thing they have in common is their stint on the show. Someone said pages ago (and I can’t find the post to quote) that with Adam it’s about “more than the music“. ITA. I think they will go in totally different directions with their respective careers. And wherever Adam’s path leads I’ll be there.

  135. Oh — the Good Morning America appearance — I thought y’all were saying Adam would sing 3 songs at the AMAs

    Yeah, I think both Kris and Adam will sing multiple songs for the GMA concert — no one else is scheduled to sing at those right? How many songs did Carrie sing atn her GMA concert on the day her album dropped?

  136. I adore Adam and I wandered into this thread to check out his appearance st the TVGuide party and I see so many insults directed towards Kris. I know that it is everyone’s right to diss Kris as this is not a fan site but I just want you Adam fans to know that you aren’t doing Adam any favors by alienating Kris’s fan base. I am not really a fan of Adam’s style but I still like him a lot as a person and respect his talent. I even bought his single just to show him my support but sometimes his fans are so darn mean that I actually find myself hoping that he will fail just so that they will get a taste of humble pie. I suppose that this will be deleted since it is against the rules to talk about other posters but,in any case, I just wish that you all could see that you are hurting Adam far more than you are helping him.

    If that’s the case with all the nasty comments about Adam that are thrown around Kris career should be dead in the water. But seriously I don’t see any comments that are insulting other than a joke about the piggly wiggly. We are discussing media coverage. And my believing Kris do not want fame the way Adam does is not an insult. Fan comments on a blog have no bearing on Adam or Kris career. It just bothers the fans who don’t agree with them.

  137. So she is now a fan of both Kris and Adam’ ¦

    girlygirl,
    Samantha Ronson was a fan of Matt’s first. She rooted for Matt as her favorite and even hung out with him and Lindsay at a piano bar after one of the concerts.

  138. So wait ‘” did Kris go to the Mat Kearney concert? I thought I saw something saying this further back in the comments

    It’s on his twitter – I’m in shock if you missed a tweet from Kris.

  139. I think RCA just thought radio would pick up and play anything by Adam immediately. Program Directors don’t work like that–especially for new artists who also happen to come off AI. FYE is a great, top 40-friendly song, but nobody is going to know that if it doesn’t get heard. It is getting spins, and I don’t doubt it will be successful. But, it isn’t going to happen as quickly as RCA thought. And, I just hope they have enough time now for the song to gain a little familiarity before the AMAs. They do need to get Adam and the song out there. Radio interviews help, but as I learned last year with Cook, that’s no guarentee of spins either (DC had a great interview with the morning DJs at the Mix, they loved him, they spun the song once and then not again for, like, days). I think the concerts—like what Kris is doing—do work.

  140. My point with these ‘hot list’  parties is that there’s a new one every week

    Really? There is a Hot TV Guide party like this one EVERY week? Where are the pictures from those?

    In a word, yes. Every week there’s a “hot” this or an “up and coming” that where various celebrities can come and get their picture taken and get some press. Open your window and look. Or open US magazine or InTouch Weekly or Life and Style.

  141. Ugh, can we not rehash the radio promo thing in every thread… I was getting really excited picking out possible GMA songs!

  142. To clarify, that’s the Mix in Chicago (WTMX)—edit isn’t working for me

  143. I’m with you saga.
    Adam like the more glamorous, mingling and personal connections route and Kris like the more conventional route. Eventually Adam will do radio and TV talk show promotions too.

  144. The man is packing ‘“ he can’t help it.

    Problem is, he could be wearing flairs, and it would be the same. The only solution would be to wear a long, loose buttoned up coat to hide it.

    …or a kilt. I bet Adam could really rock a kilt.

  145. So now that we have established it was great that Adam went to TV Guide event (raising hand) or not necessary (other people’s hands), moving back onto the GMAs.

    So, we know that Adam will start with FYE. Then I think Fever b/c that’s the Pink track (or is that the GaGa track–GaGa, right?). Finally, I really think he picks a slow track to give the set a bit of balance, like, Hey, let’s pick something slower, and that’s when he goes for Soaked.

    Now, what will he wear? ;) I am going with black jacket, t-shirt, skinny jeans, black boots, emo (or variation of) hair. Probably sparkly black jacket, but maybe more subdued for morning show. PLEASE NO ELVIS/BOUFFANT HAIR.

    What he will wear for the AMAs is way out of my league. ;)

  146. I think RCA just thought radio would pick up and play anything by Adam immediately. Program Directors don’t work like that’“especially for new artists who also happen to come off AI.

    Well holy crap. Someone should contact RCA and tell them that!!! How did they ever become one of the most successful recording companies in the world for the last 80 years without that knowledge? Shocking!

  147. We know one thing – what ever Adam wears it will be recycled – that boys does not waste and outfit.

    Although I’m hoping that a designer dresses him for the AMA red carpet

  148. I hope he chooses strut because then Monte gets to shine with the guitar riff. And I hope it will be single no 2. Soaked would be lovely but will it work on the GMA stage? Is it still early in the morning?

  149. ‘ ¦or a kilt. I bet Adam could really rock a kilt.

    With those pale, skinny legs of his? Probably not so much.

    I think RCA just thought radio would pick up and play anything by Adam immediately. Program Directors don’t work like that’“especially for new artists who also happen to come off AI. FYE is a great, top 40-friendly song, but nobody is going to know that if it doesn’t get heard. It is getting spins, and I don’t doubt it will be successful.

I think the concerts’”like what Kris is doing’”do work.

    Problem, those concerts don’t seem like an RCA kind of thing. Or so I gather, what was Cook doing last year besides radio interviews to support his single? Oh and yeah, I agree with everything you said except the concert thing. Not sure if that is needed. But something is, and if not that, than what? hmmm.

  150. I am also more excited about the AMAs, I have to admit, b/c:

    1) He can play more than one song;

    I have to admit that I just got home from work and am, once again, late to the festivities. Boy, my job is SO interfering with my life right now!!
    Anyway, I have only had a chance to read through the most recent comments. I’m sure this was discussed early on. What is up with Adam playing more than one song? Does this mean he is actually playing more than just FYE at the AMAs?? Thank you and love you for filling me in with the details….. :)

  151. ‘ ¦or a kilt. I bet Adam could really rock a kilt.

    With those pale, skinny legs of his? Probably not so much.

    I’d like to judge for my self – visuals are needed

  152. Adam like the more glamorous, mingling and personal connections route and Kris like the more conventional route. Eventually Adam will do radio and TV talk show promotions too.

    Lmao. And when might Adam get around to this “conventional route”?

    It’s one thing to rewrite the rules for yourself if you can back it up with success but 18,000 downloads does not justify a rewrite.

    My point with these ‘hot list’  parties is that there’s a new one every week

    Really? There is a Hot TV Guide party like this one EVERY week? Where are the pictures from those?

    In a word, yes. Every week there’s a ‘hot’  this or an ‘up and coming’  that where various celebrities can come and get their picture taken and get some press. Open your window and look. Or open US magazine or InTouch Weekly or Life and Style.

    I don’t understand your point. I am not being sarcastic or disrespectful but I don’t think Kris or Adam is in a position to ignore any chance to get whatever press they can. Except for this blog I wouldn’t know that Kris was at the Matt K. concert. Branding and promoting yourself just before your album drops would be a priority in my opinion but I don’t judge Kris based on him preferring to go to Matt K concert instead. Adam is not better for going to the TV Guide event and Kris is not better for not going. (no matter how many there are of these Hollywood events each week). I want Kris to be a success and would think it would have been in his best interest to go to the TV Guide party but Kris has said he is not looking for Stardom. He just wants to make music. So it may be more important to him to support a friend’s concert then to promote himself. Again does not make him better or worse them Adam. Who knows if Adam had a friend that was in concert last night he may not have been there either. But I still don’t fully understand the point that there are many of these events every week. They must be important promotion wise or they wouldn’t have them at all.

  154. Well holy crap. Someone should contact RCA and tell them that!!! How did they ever become one of the most successful recording companies in the world for the last 80 years without that knowledge? Shocking!

    Seriously, this is not the first singer they have signed….is it?

  155. I don’t really care what he wears for GMA, now AMA – there is a conversation I could get a bit jazzed about. Given that Gaga is on the program as well should be interesting to see who can be the most outrageous.

    I am voting for something Zodiac club like – would love to see him melt people’s brains and it would for make the crowd at the show go absolutely bat shit crazy – among all the too cool for gangs R&B guys, laid back plaid or stetson brigade (depending which side of the rock/country fence you sit on), and girls in their corsets and gowns I would love to see Adam decked out in a flowing glittery something surrounded by writing scantily clad dancers and flames.

  156. bridgeymah
    I am voting for something Zodiac club like

    I certainly dont want him to show up like a matrix albino! I wish Ciriano or someone would make an outfit for his AMA performance.

  157. Seriously, this is not the first singer they have signed’ ¦.is it?

    Seriously, I guess you didn’t get the sarcasm.

  158. Lmao. And when might Adam get around to this ‘conventional route’ ?

    It’s one thing to rewrite the rules for yourself if you can back it up with success but 18,000 downloads does not justify a such a rewrite.

    LMAO if you really think Adam is controlling how he is rolling himself out. I don’t think any of us are privy to what Adam roll out actually is or if anything is being rewritten. But a colorful and inventive opinion on your assessment on how you think things are being handled.

  159. Well holy crap. Someone should contact RCA and tell them that!!! How did they ever become one of the most successful recording companies in the world for the last 80 years without that knowledge? Shocking!

    haha.

  160. “With those pale, skinny legs of his? Probably not so much”

    I don’t think anyone would be looking at the “skinny” legs

  161. Seriously, this is not the first singer they have signed’ ¦.is it?

    lol

    I honest to God believe that RCA knows what it is doing with Adam. He is really too popular w/ the press to be pushed aside. I am sure Kris wants to be extremely successful, but I do think it’s more in a grass-roots way, which is to say playing lots of smaller concerts. More like Cook, but less rocky. Not comparing the two (except the plaid, heh), but I just think that Kris would play venues closer to the ones Cook plays and do more stipped down sets. Not a thing wrong with that.

    Yes, I meant the GMAs, and FOUR songs would be better, but I am going with three. I just heard Fever again and I think that will be the 2nd choice after FYE. Maybe Soaked would be too mellow, but I think SLEEPWALKER would be an excellent choice. :)

  162. Well holy crap. Someone should contact RCA and tell them that!!! How did they ever become one of the most successful recording companies in the world for the last 80 years without that knowledge? Shocking!

    Also shocking, RCA isn’t always right and they make, mistakes and miscalculations. I know, weird! Shocking even. It’s like RCA is like every corporate ever and doesn’t always do the right thing. And it’s like until things start gettting better for Adam with sales, spins whatever, that people are going to question if RCA is doing the right strategy, because right now, results aren’t good.

    I know, shocking! to think that when something is demonstrably not working, that people want it to change to something that hopefully will work. Wacky.

    That being said, realizing there isn’t anything we can do to make RCA change their policy is one thing and making the decision that as there is nothing that can be done, that stressing is pointless. Okay. But I think equally valid is the stance that knowing that there is nothing one can do personally, someone still chooses to discuss the ramifications and possible future solutions. That’s kind of what blogs are for. Well that and creating macros and .gifs. Or at least that’s what I’ve learned from I Can Haz Cheeseburger and ONTD, YMMV.

  163. Well at least Kris officially confirmed where he was last night.

    Krisallen
    #Went to the @matkearney show last night and it was great. Hung out backstage for a little bit.
    about 3 hours ago from Echofon

    From both his and Mat’s accounts, they really hit it off when they wrote the song together. And in his place, I would choose a friend’s concert over a red carpet party as well. Seems obvious his management didn’t think the TV Guide thing was a big deal…

  164. I wanna see Adam in a kilt in the worst way now. Thanks a lot, squirrely. ;) Wear what you want, Adam (I do not expect emo hair–that’s what he wears for the GMAs), but DO NOT HIDE YOUR BEAUTIFUL FACE ALA GAGA.

    There will be dancers and they will be dancing for your entertainment.

  165. Seriously, this is not the first singer they have signed’ ¦.is it?

    Seriously, I guess you didn’t get the sarcasm.

    I did! LOL and I guess you didn’t get mine. I luved your post! Guess things don’t come out the same on a blog. lol

  166. I honest to God believe that RCA knows what it is doing with Adam.

    I agree. People need to chill out. LOL

    Adam’s album seems to be holding steady on Itunes and Amazon so I think after 2 weeks there isn’t a meltdown yet. #1 Pop album and 10 overall after only 12 hours is nothing to sneeze at. I honestly see nothing negative for either Adam or Kris. Allison has some work to do though….

    Yes, I meant the GMAs, and FOUR songs would be better, but I am going with three. I just heard Fever again and I think that will be the 2nd choice after FYE. Maybe Soaked would be too mellow, but I think SLEEPWALKER would be an excellent choice. :)

    Sleepwalker would be a terrific choice. I would also like Adam to sing Strut and Fever.

  167. i have always thought he was gorgeous, but omg he is perfection in those pictures!! he always looks and carries himself like a superstar.

  168. Woah, I’ll back off RCA, lol. I guess the alternative is that the single roll-out is happening exactly to plan and Adam is just not going to be as popular out the box as I thought he would be. Which is actually just fine; it only becomes a problem when you get caught up in the fan drama that AI breeds, lol

    And to clarify, I personally think Adam will be in a good position come December. How could he not be, really?

  169. I would LOVE to hear an acoustic TfM. Boy, would that show off his vocal range. *sigh*

    Yes. That would be awesome.

    Regarding the GMAs, I’d like to hear Soaked and the Broken Wing song too.

    Heck, Adam should sing his whole album. lol

  170. He should learn at least one more pose. Bump up his pose repertoire up to 3.

    LOL! Are we adding modeling lessons to the list of things Adam needs to do while he is lazing around trying to prep for the AMA’s, Letterman, GMA, Ellen…

  171. Woah, I’ll back off RCA, lol. I guess the alternative is that the single roll-out is happening exactly to plan and Adam is just not going to be as popular out the box as I thought he would be. Which is actually just fine; it only becomes a problem when you get caught up in the fan drama that AI breeds, lol

    Yup!!

  172. Alaadam

    Unfortunately, no. Many Kris fans are still hoping it will end up as a bonus track somewhere since it has been described as “edgy and driving” and both guys have said they really like how the song turned out

  173. I know, shocking! to think that when something is demonstrably not working, that people want it to change to something that hopefully will work. Wacky.

    But what’s even more shocking is that people who know ZERO about what RCA’s short term and long term promotional plans are for Adam, are quite ready to call the plan (that they know nothing about) a failure, that needs changing. RCA has an incredible musical history and yet some seem to think it’s possible they are confused as to how to get spins? Really? You think they don’t know how this business works? After 80 years?

  174. Did anyone else remember the list someone had here last week about first weeks sales for other artists? I remembered three of them- Lady Gaga, 30 Seconds To Mars and Flyleaf. All of them sold under 20,000 their first week. All of them ended up selling 1-2 million.

    The sky is not falling :)

  175. “Huh? Hasn’t Adam been working hard prepping for his performance on the AMA awards?

    I’m sure he has and I hope it works out since he doesn’t seem to have any other kind of promo in mind.”

    This I don’t understand, besides AMAs, isn’t he scheduled for GMA, Ellen, Letterman and Oprah..also theme song will be playing on the 2012 movie..also promoted on RS and Details…plus other mags. but I don’t remember which ones…I’m sure he will be doing radio promos soon

  176. There is a possibility that the GMA concert will be outdoors. People on twitter were all freaked out that they were going move the location. hahaha, if you’re coming from out-of-town what’s the diff if it’s in Times Sq or Lincoln Ctr Plaza?

  177. Seriously, this is not the first singer they have signed’ ¦.is it?

    Seriously, I guess you didn’t get the sarcasm.

    I did! LOL and I guess you didn’t get mine. I luved your post! Guess things don’t come out the same on a blog. lol

    LOL. Oopsy!

  178. OMG hitspredictor has 2 min clips of the songs! Sleepwalker playing now! Gah

  179. I’m a long time lurker but I have a question I hope someone can answer for me. (Pretty please!?!)

    When sales numbers are posted for Adam’s album the 1st week, will all the pre-orders from AO and Itunes and Amazon count as well?

    I guess what I really want to know is, by pre-ordering Adam’s album rather than waiting to buy the 1st week, am I hurting his visible 1st week sales? Certainly that is the number everyone will be talking about (and sadly, comparing to 1st week sales for other artists and making predictions, however unfounded, about Adam’s future career.)

    Thank you to anyone who has info about this. I really wish I didn’t let myself get so stressed out over this stuff, but I just adore Adam so much it makes my heart hurt. lol

  180. This I don’t understand, besides AMAs, isn’t he scheduled for GMA, Ellen, Letterman and Oprah..also theme song will be playing on the 2012 movie..also promoted on RS and Details’ ¦plus other mags. but I don’t remember which ones’ ¦I’m sure he will be doing radio promos soon

    This ^^^^

  181. OMG hitspredictor has 2 min clips of the songs! Sleepwalker playing now! Gah

    ontd_ai has pick u up and music again clips.

  182. LauraMA (are you from MA?), I cannot answer your questions. I believe FYE sales will be counted (yes?), but not till album is released.

    I can just say the following:

    A) He should sing entire album on GMAs, as well as bonus tracks, but the show isn’t long enough.

    B) WHERE IS THIS LOCALE THAT PLAYS TWO MINUTES SNIPPETS? *off to find*

    ETA: He isn’t scheduled for Oprah yet, is he? She just asked if he would come on show to sing and he said Yes, if you want me to, and she said that she did and it was a big ole luvfest. ;)

  183. “If i had you’ IS GREAT. Love this clip better. I’ll have this on repeat!

  184. Well still not thrilled by Pick U Up, but at least I can hear some more Weezer in the longer clip.

    Off to to listen to the rest of the longer clips.

  185. LMAO if you really think Adam is controlling how he is rolling himself out.

    I didn’t say Adam is in charge but someone is and if you have weak sales you might want to rethink that rollout and make adjustments.

    And it’s not just sales. His spins and adds aren’t that good especially in Top 40 which is the preferable format for him.

  186. WAIT A SECOND
    can someone give me a link to these 2 minute previews?
    And ya know what a time for his management to be lazy XD
    They lock up everything super tight and then the MUSIC leaks.

  187. The “sad” thing for AI contestants is that they are assumed to come in with HUGE ready-made fanbases and, thus, are expected to produce high first week sales. This is probably the only case where people make any kind of judgements in the very early stages. I mean, I think Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”, took months and months to make it big on the chart. He can get away with having his song take its time—nobody is writing negative articles, blogs, tweets, etc. the minute his song isn’t moving up the chart with a bullet.

    And, to be clear, nobody is crying failure. Nothing about Adam or FYE is a failure or even potential failure. It will do great–eventually. It is ok to question what RCA might be doing (or not doing); it is just discussion. It doesn’t mean people are stressed-out about it.

    And it is good to remember, RCA is much more album focused, rather than the individual singles, which is a good way to be.

  188. OMG hitspredictor has 2 min clips of the songs! Sleepwalker playing now! Gah

    This will shock you, but it didn’t work for me. :( How do I get to ontd_ai? You have to be a member, right?

    *clueless*

  189. Becky MD — i don’t think those are working….but thanks for the effort….can anyone else get into these?

  190. BeckyMD, I am getting an error message:

    server is taking too long to respond.

    *sigh*

    Today is Aimee Mayo’s anniversary, BTW, if anyone wants to wish her a good one. :)

  191. Ya ontd_ai’s membership is locked but they say that they’ll open it up soon.

    Pick you up sounds amazing! I should listen to some Weezer :)

  192. ‘if i had you’ is so~~~~different and so much better than the 30 sec snippet!!!

  193. It’s in a locked post mmb.
    Um those vocaroo links aren’t working for me :(
    But Pick u up and Music Again sound awesome :D

  194. I didn’t say Adam is in charge but someone is and if you have weak sales you might want to rethink that roll out and make adjustments.

    Oh my mistake but this is what you had written and from below it looked liked you were accusing Adam directly especially in the highlight area:

    Lmao. And when might Adam get around to this ‘conventional route’ ?

    It’s one thing to rewrite the rules for yourself if you can back it up with success but 18,000 downloads does not justify a such a rewrite.

    But I am not a professional and I am not yet going to question those who are at this point. (its only been a week) but you are free too. Your original post wasn’t clear and it seems as if you implied Adam was in control of his roll out but now that you have clarified yourself I don’t really disagree with you or agree with you.

    And it’s not just sales. His spins and adds aren’t that good especially in Top 40 which is the preferable format for him

    Well then your one of the few who think this because even Kristen who post the spins and Adds each week on this blog said his spins and add numbers are good at this point. Please provide the numbers you are basing your assessment on because as far as I know you can’t get the spin numbers anymore. (and that has been for the past few days). I would like to be able to follow that so please provide the link. Thank you.

  195. “If I had you” is so much better than I thought it would be. So much more attitude, love it!

  196. Haha, I am logged on this site and just listened to whatya want from me.

  197. The only link that worked for me is music again. were people able to open any of the others?

  198. When I get into my car the first thing I do is put my c d on of
    Adam singing all his songs from Idol to F Y E and T F M..
    I never listen to the radio anymore. The last time I listened to the radio was when Ryan had Adam on the radio. I just do not listed to the radio.

  199. Oh, Sleepwalker is so pretty… *sigh* You can go to Twitter for many of these downloads…they are only partial, of course.

    Pick U Up is going to be a radio hit, watch it happen.

    If I Had You…also excellent.

    I WANT THE ENTIRE ALBUM NOW. DYING HERE.

  200. That rolling stone article was really interesting. Now we know that Monte Pittman is OFFICIALLY going to be in his band. Sweet :)
    OH OH OH and it looks like the AMA performance might be Old Hollywood style….not really sure what that means but it sounds interesting.

  201. I agree. Music Again is my least favorite of these three. Wow, I really like If I Had You a lot. Very nice beat. Great dance tune.

  202. SLEEPWALKER FTW!!! Aimee, thank you for NOT DISAPPOINTING US. Much love.

    Old Hollywood Style? What does that mean? Like Vaudeville?

  203. Ugh, why did he go eurodisco…. NOTHING can make me like IF I HAD YOU

  204. Hoo boy, are ppl fighting about this on Twitter.
    Adam would not want this.
    It will stop ppl from buying the album.

    UM.
    No.
    And.
    No.

  205. I kind of think that for the first single, “For Your Entertainment,” we’re going to go for more of an old Hollywood look, like 1930s style, but influences of Berlin, kind of dark, black and white, opium den, old glam? I want it to look like Valentino, old movie star, like black and white, pencil moustaches ‘” that kind of vibe.

    I have no idea what that means. Except no fiery headdresses? And…STACHES? NOOOOOO.

  206. I have no idea what that means. Except no fiery headdresses? And’ ¦STACHES? NOOOOOO.

    You and me both sue XD
    But I don’t think he’s going to grow a moustache again don’t worry xD

  207. So Adam decided to keep working with Monte Pittman. That does not surprise me. lol I can’t wait to see a picture of the band!!

  208. Whatya Want From Me is a potential hit I agree, but it’s more like one of those songs that get stuck and annoy you.

  209. Five of them, right? No Strut or Aftermath or Fever?

    Hey I can all get what is provided…Work with me Suebrody… :-) Trying my best…..

  210. I’m desperate to hear a 2 min clip of Soaked, Broken Open and A Loaded Smile .. oh and Sure Fire Winners (I want to know what the girls want to know ..lol).

    oh and the Rabbit Hole one intrigues me

  211. Pick U Up and If I Had You are so much better than the 30 second clips. They’re like the dark horses of Adam’s album… Whataya Want From Me and Music Again are about the same… still not understanding the love for the latter, but we’ll see what the longer version can do for me. Sleepwalker is really good I can’t wait for it in HQ.

  212. Old Hollywood Style? What does that mean? Like Vaudeville?

    Not at all. It means like things like Film Noir, or Jean Harlow and Marlene Dietrich.

  213. People on twitter are upset about the clips? I am sure that the “leaks” are straight from 19/rca…I would expect them to stream the whole album on the internet by next week anyway, so why are people up in arms…this will only increase interest in the album!

  214. Out if the ones we’ve heard I would pick Pick U Up as a single. Sleepwalker is interesting but I am not sure it’s single material.

  215. Its so weird hearing more than 30 seconds of these songs, I keep expecting them to the end where the snippets did and then they..dont! :D

  216. Well I like Pick U Up more, again, you can finally hear some Weezer on it. Still not thrilled by it, but I like it.

    Like If I Had You a lot more. It still has some spots where I’m all ehh, but then other parts where I was digging the beat. The beat and attitude have improved for me with the longer clip, though it still has a bit of the eurodisco sound which isn’t my fave.

    Sleepwalker pretty much kicks ass. Good song all the way around. Pretty as well.

    Liking What Do You Want From me a lot more as well. Phew! It’s already sticking in my head, this longer clip and more rock/less generic, will just put in in there more.

    The only song that I like less is Music Again and that’s a shame because I was hoping to get some interesting more glam rock stuff. But not enough rock, too much disco/glam at this point. Unless they add a lot more guitar in the beginning.

  217. People on twitter are upset about the clips? I am sure that the ‘leaks’  are straight from 19/rca’ ¦I would expect them to stream the whole album on the internet by next week anyway, so why are people up in arms’ ¦this will only increase interest in the album!]

    Yes. Acc’d to Idol360–she has the website–RCA released them for feedback. Just five of them, tho, and I am greedy. I want to hear Broken Open in the WORST WAY.

    Anyway, least favorite is Music Again (which I figured, that was my least favorite before, tho it’s okay, but the falsetto bugs me in this case, tho I guess it’s a nod to the 70s). The others: two thumbs way up.

    Truthiness, I can see film noir. Black and white. Very stylized. That would work. Still don’t like the mustache idea, tho.

  218. Tik Tok somehow is very like LLWD. It’s like a LLWD maash with a Gaga song.

  219. I wonder why they picked those 4? If I had You, PUU, and WWFM are arguably the weakest ones on the record. Everyone is dying to hear Fever and Soaked. Odd that those weren’t included.

    Funny but I like PUU and IIHY now that I heard extended versions. WWFM is still not a favorite, and as I originally thought Sleepwalker is GOOD Tedder. The Tedder that was influenced by and worked with Timbaland. As a matter of fact, I think it sounds more Timbaland than Tedder.

    Congrats Aimee Mayo wherever you are!

  220. If they’re looking for the second single, I’m surprised they didn’t put up Fever….

    And why would they look for a second single already??? They need to give FYE a chance. It’s a great song and the only reason it’s not doing well is for promotional reasons/ confusion with TFM…

    Anyway I think Sleepwalker is the best song here but it depends on whether they want a ballad single or not. Music Again shouldn’t be the single–it’s not current enough and I can’t see it being a hit. Altho I’m actually starting to like it more now that I have the lyrics

  221. LOVE all of them but especially Music Again and Sleepwalker….agree that whataya want from me, if i had u and pick u up are all even better in the longer version

  222. I wonder why they picked those 4? If I had You, PUU, and WWFM are arguably the weakest ones on the record. Everyone is dying to hear Fever and Soaked. Odd that those weren’t included.

    I think they did not include the ones that were getting the most uniformly positive reactions — i think they gave people a longer taste of the “weaker” ones to show that hey, they aren’t that weak

  223. Everyone is tweeting Aimee. ;)

    I don’t think they really want a second single yet, I think they just want general reaction (tho I kind of don’t get that…maybe as a marketing tool?).

    I am surprised that I really like If I Had U…the others I am not surprised about. Bummed out that Music Again is first track, tho, since it will prob end up my least favorite. Oh, well. Wow, I am going to sing If I Had U over and over. It’s what I wanted FYE to sound like. That could have been the first single, IMO.

  224. Sleepwalker is F**king Awesome…Holy Crap…..Epic….I want the whole song now… I like the rest least fav is Music Again..Like P U U much better IIHY and WWFM addicting songs.

  225. I think they did not include the ones that were getting the most uniformly positive reactions ‘” i think they gave people a longer taste of the ‘weaker’  ones to show that hey, they aren’t that weak

    Not true Music Again and Sleepwalker were getting pretty uniformly positive reactions. Also if they were releasing “weak” songs they would’ve released Aftermath

  226. Also if they were releasing ‘weak’  songs they would’ve released Aftermath

    I like Aftermath …..

  227. Well, a lot of us heard Fever and Soaked again, so I guess they weren’t necessary. I am surprised that Sleepwalker is here; thought Aftermath would, since that seems to be getting kind of meh reviews. I was hoping for Broken Up, just b/c I am so excited from what I’ve heard.

    (I am not used to the acronyms yet, dhunken.)

    Wait till this mutha streams next week…OMG.

  228. Truthiness, I can see film noir. Black and white. Very stylized. That would work. Still don’t like the mustache idea, tho

    Well I agree the moostach is a VERY bad idea. *still shuddering over those horrible NO pictures.* So wrong.

    There is precedent with people like Clark Gable and Errol Flynn, so I could possibly see what he was going for, but no. DNW for Adam.

  229. I love WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME Just don’t give up. Need a second to breathe. Just keep coming around. Baby your beautiful. I think you could save my life. I love these lyrics. Just don’t give up on me. I won’t let you down. Adam I will never give up on you. And I know you will never let me down.

  230. Also if they were releasing ‘weak’  songs they would’ve released Aftermath

    I like Aftermath ‘ ¦..

    Sorry rephrase… if they were releasing songs that got more negative reactions from the 30 sec clips on average. :)

  231. Also if they were releasing ‘weak’  songs they would’ve released Aftermath

    I like Aftermath ‘ ¦..

    Sorry rephrase’ ¦ if they were releasing songs that got more negative reactions from the 30 sec clips on average. :)

    ITA. And Twitter friends are convincing me that I will love Music Again. Of course, they hate TfM and I do not. ;)

    I wonder if Adam is in his apartment or wherever going, YEP, THEY LIKE WHAT THEY HEAR. I hope so.

  232. Oh- and did you guys hear that guitar at the end of Sleepwalker? If Orianthi isn’t the guitarist on Strut, it HAS to be this one.

    Also if they were releasing ‘weak’  songs they would’ve released Aftermath

    I like Aftermath ‘ ¦..

    Okay, let me restate- they didn’t put the most favorable ones on there- Soaked, Fever, Broken Open, Loaded Smile.

  233. Hoo boy, are ppl fighting about this on Twitter.
    Adam would not want this.
    It will stop ppl from buying the album.

    And this is when Twitter goes back to being the Devil.

    I like all these so much more! except for Music Again. Sads.

    But for a single I would say Sleepwalker if they wanted something more ballady, it’s SOOO effing pretty.

    And yeah, like Pick U Up and What Do Want From Me more each time I hear them.

    Okay, want the whole album. Right now.

  234. I love Aftermath (what we have heard at least!) too but I know some don’t . . but I make no apologies for my love of late 80s hair metal and that’s what it reminds of.

  235. I don’t know why people are getting so upset about the clips as from what I can hear each one has been “chopped up” so that you don’t get a full flow of 2 mins of the actual song .. its a bit of it, then another bit chopped onto it .. so it’s not like you could rip the whole track or the 2 mins as they would appear on the actual CD

  236. OMG what a roller coaster – Adam is doing great/Adam is failing – take a deep breath people cuz we are in for a bumpy ride. Seriously, if it weren’t for Idol Adam would still be a chorus boy. He’s gonna do fine!

  237. From Jim C:

    Wait, does anyone find it odd that we now have 2+ minute snippets of a bunch of @adamlambert tracks? Not that I’m complaining, mind you!!!9 minutes ago from web

    More snippets?!!! http://bit.ly/1K0Qb6 HE’S A STREETWALKER, YOU GUYS! LOLOL!10 minutes ago from web

    OMG MUSIC AGAIN! http://bit.ly/3avXht Sha la la la! YES YES YES!
    @adamlambert Can I sing backup on tour?16 minutes ago from web

    Um, he meant Sleepwalker, lol

  238. I like all these so much more! except for Music Again. Sads.

    But for a single I would say Sleepwalker if they wanted something more ballady, it’s SOOO effing pretty.

    And yeah, like Pick U Up and What Do Want From Me more each time I hear them.

    Okay, want the whole album. Right now.

    hmm– so do you now think there will be more than 2-3 decent songs on the album? ^.^

  239. I am obliged to keep playing If I Had You over and over again. So damn catchy!!!

    Geez, srsly, next week, when the album streams (if it does, hopefully)…OMG.

    And then…the album release date, after the AMAs.

    *thud*

  240. If I had you…that would be the only thing I’d ever need…if I had you…then money, fame, and fortune could never compete…

    *dancing in my seat*

  241. Well the best thing about Music Again for me right now is it’s correctly using raison d’etre as part of a song lyric. But it’s entirely too ELO sounding and not enough Queen sounding.

  242. I can’t believe you guys like If I Had You! The chorus is sooo europop that I could puke. But the rest it really good… can we operate away the chorus?

  243. *need album right now*
    *cannot wait till 11.23*
    *flail and squee*

    Well the best thing about Music Again for me right now is it’s correctly using raison d’etre as part of a song lyric.

    BEST.SENTENCE.EVER.

  244. I can’t believe you guys like If I Had You! The chorus is sooo europop that I could puke.

    I like europop so I’m good with that. Maybe they could use it as a UK single?

  245. not too crazy about Pick Me UP – I like it but don’t love it just yet.

  246. I am liking sleepwalker more… I think Kelly should have used Whatya Want From Me as her first album single… (but she cant :grin:)

  247. Can’t wait to hear the entire album in my car blasting the volume. There are songs that I like (given the fact that I haven’t heard the entire songs) more than others, but that’s like saying I love Edy’s French Silk ice cream and I only just like Dulce de Leche….IT’S ALL FREAKIN GREAT!!!!! Adam is like a snake chamer…he is so beautiful and once he starts singing, well I kinda go to a happy place……..squeeeeeeeeeeeeee More Please flaillllllllllllllllllllll

  248. Well the best thing about Music Again for me right now is it’s correctly using raison d’etre as part of a song lyric.

    BEST.SENTENCE.EVER.

    The longer snippet of M.A. makes it sound even more like Queen, not a bad thing! I love the layers of harmony in that snippet. It’s gorgeous. Also, SuBro, I’m with you: “cannot wait till 11.23”

    Also, I’m starting to get overly excited about the AMA performance….

  249. I love Streetwalker (HeH) WYWFM not so much. I am so picturing Adam at the AMA awards singing, dressed in a turben outfit, kinda like a mixture of CTF and Rudolf Valentino.

  250. ET just had a segment about the TV Guide Hot List in upcoming TV Guide Magazine, which includes ADam Lambert (showed him last nite)and I forgot the other couple of peeps they mentioned, so gotta go get that TV Guide issue…

  251. We are going to need several threads next week: one for each song. (KIDDING!)

    Well, I need to go home, snif. Can download these at home and listen on computer there.

    SO HAPPY. It’s true. Up, down, up, down. *tired but happy* Will post again.

    laterz for now

  252. All of the new snippets sound awesome. Maybe I’m biased, lol. Love dancing to euro-electro-pop If I Had You, love airy-sounding rock-ballad Sleepwalker. Love the new snippet of Pick U Up, even though it doesn’t sound like A-ha any more. I now see the Weezer sound in P. U. Up. Maybe I’m in the minority, but I love Music Again, but I do think it sounds like updated Queen. The songs all sound like he hit different genres; eclectic is right.

  253. I am loving what I am hearing on these snippets, but I wish they hadn’t chopped them up. Sleepwalker and Music Again are great. I didn’t care that much for If I Had You but now I really like it. I want the whole thing so bad now!

  254. Wow I love all these extended snippets. That guitar in Sleepwalker is HOT. Wonder how that is. Is it 11/23 yet? BTW I could see Adam in a black suit and fedora for old hollywood. just no face hair, please?

  255. Oh- and did you guys hear that guitar at the end of Sleepwalker? If Orianthi isn’t the guitarist on Strut, it HAS to be this one.

    It could be Slash…

  256. I STILL LOVE MUSIC AGAIN and I will play it again and again and…well you get the idea.

  257. Adam is so cute. Two more days until we get to hear Time For Miracles at the movies. :)
