  1. just reqested adams ong in r local station and they just made a shout out of adam fans hir in manila!!! yehey!!!

    btw, johnson the guy luks like the blond adam lambert…

  2. I’m thinking that once they get there and sign the confidentiality agreement, there will be no more Tweets!

  3. Me too…so excited!! I wonder what they are going to do. Do you think it will be a relationship video or a tabloid/fan type video? I wonder if they will do a gay relationship video. Now that would be totally awesome (and with that phrase I have now turned back to my teenage years!)

  5. ope they will release the album early next yir maybe b4 adams bday.. dat would be awesome!!!

  6. Lots of videos show the singer singing while a story plays out but the singer is not one of the featured characters in the story line. So that’s one scenario, the other is a Lady Gaga type video which depicts the singer as the protagonist of the story. And some are just straight forward, no story.

    Re: sexuality, WWFM is not really sexual, so who knows if that will play a part or not. I like FYE (the music video, not the AMA performance!) as it’s more or less equal opportunity regarding sexuality. If an Adam video is strictly guy on guy then his female fans would be kinda left out, and let’s face it even though we are fully aware of his preference, we (speaking as a female fan) think he is hot and enjoy our silly little fantasies. Flirting is fun and Adam is pretty good at that so I think he will work it out! :)

  7. sorry – not sure why I keep double posting tonight. My fingers are just too happy!

  8. t. I like FYE (the music video, not the AMA performance!) as it’s more or less equal opportunity regarding sexuality.

    I agree revcat. I love when he is standing in the middle of a circle of dancers and two dancers are standing with him and one is a girl and the other a guy. I also agree WWFM isn’t a sexy song but it is a relationship song. It’s fun to speculate since we don’t have much else to go on. :-)

    Wonder if he will again be the most clothed person in the video. Funny how sexy he can be buttoned up to the hilt!

  9. I hope this video goes to itunes a little faster than FYE. I think he lost some sales because evryone had already downloaded it. I had 3 copies on my computer before I bought it from itunes. Not many non fans are going to buy it if they can get it free.

  10. yah lorismile, even if he is singing sexy songs he is well covered but he still lukks so sexy and so hot. way to go adam. i also wonder what he is wearing and what his hair luk like.

  11. although he could go fierce-with reallllly tall hair – a giant jock strap strapped on over his skintight jeans- singing Whataya want from me to those nasty ABC execs…

  12. I just love how excited we get at the news of some new Adam! Whether it’s an upcoming interview, perfomance, morning show, late night…anything…anytime! We go gaga over his tweets for god’s sake!…and now, a new video! I can’t wait! I love the anticipation and speculation. That guy sure knows how to keep us on the edge of our seats! I thinks it’s because we know we are always in for something original, exciting, surprising and (let’s face it) hot and sexy!

    and what kind of hair???

    A vulnerable look, I’m guessing Emo.

    YAH,EMO!!!!!!!! :D :D :D

    Not many non fans are going to buy it if they can get it free.

    but it’s only fans who know(or care) to get it online:)

    so excited’ ¦BUT how much $ this gonna cost adam?!

    Given the cost of his producers, massive promotional budgets, and now a second video, he’s not going to see much $from RCA for awhile, if ever. Hopefully a tour helps things break even and he’s sees something.

  15. Funny how sexy he can be buttoned up to the hilt!

    LOL — That’s for sure!

    what promotion?

    Massive promotional budgets?
    Given poor album sales, some of the other idols may not see much $ from their label for awhile, if ever. Hopefully a tour MIGHT help things break even.

  18. So far, seems their promotional budget has been spent mostly on plane fares/hotels – what else? My favorite today “Strut”!

  19. What comes first – the chicken or the egg? Same for singers, if no promo because of poor sales, how will they make it up on tour if no promo? Oh right, there’s twitter – lol.

  20. Sooo excited to see this new Adam thread! I had not expected a new video so soon after the FYE MV but I will definitely take it! I hope for Emo hair as we already have Elvis hair for FYE and as they say variety is the spice of life afterall. :-)

    This MV filming has probably kept Adam so busy that he has had no time to tweet (yes, I am that obsessed in reading his daily tweets heheh…) ;-)

    Oh, I wonder if the Jay Leno show taping is done same day too? I saw Adam’s pic on their website as their Special guest for the Dec 21 show.

  21. Every couple of days a new Adam song pops into my head and stays there- I never really liked Sure Fire Winners, but the other day I could not get that song out of my head!!!!! There really isn’t one song that I dislike on his CD- although if I HAD to get rid of one song, it would probably be Sleepwalker .
    I don’t hate it, but it just seems kind of flat- really does nothing for me.

  22. I am curious to see where he goes with this music Video. I have a feeling it will be more story motivated. One thing I wish could happen is that the Music video version has the Trill on the “its Me” like he did on SYTYCD. I love that and I am constantly playing that version over and over again. It gives the song an extra dimension. IMHO. I am sure that what ever the video and concept it will be entertaining and great!. Now I hope I get to win some of the tickets for the free concert in NYC. I really want to see Adam Kris and Allison in concert singing their own songs.

  23. Great news! Adam shooting the WWFM video today. I wonder if he’s going to have the same guy ( I can’t remember his name) direct this video like FYE? I hope so and wasn’t this guy suppose to direct Adam’s tour in the Spring? I don’t think he did the AMA production.

    Had my grandkids this weekened for our annual making of Xmas cookies and I had Adam’s album playing and it was fun to watch all three of them (11, 7, and 4 yrs. old) dancing and singing to the music! The 7yr old kept requesting to hear “If I Had You”. So…Adam has people singing and dancing to his music at all ages. (LOL)

  24. I wonder if he’s going to have the same guy ( I can’t remember his name) direct this video like FYE?

    The guy who directed the FYE MV is Ray Kay.

  25. @JuliannaMilton: Adam Lambert fans!In the music video I’m playing a girl who’s to young to get in the club.Just got makeup.Waiting on …

    Looks like it is a story driven video….

  26. Thanks, GreatAdamFan for the Ray Kay information. I sure hope he’s doing this video. I think he gets “sexy with a smile”.

  27. It’s funny, mila3, that your favorite today is “Strut” because by the time my feet hit the floor this morning, the words to that song started running through my mind. It’s not one of my favorites, so I was surprised. To me, though, any of them can be a favorite on any given day. No bad ones.

  28. I doubt it’s the same director who did FYE.

    If there’s a club in the WWFM mv, maybe there will be a performance section, as there was in FYE, and that means the band will be part of the video too? It seems an Adam thing to involve his band, and I like to see them in the videos too, since they all get DRESSED.

    No clue what the story would be. Just hope it looks really good. Why does it have to be a night shoot, unless there’s some outdoor stuff? They shot FYE in broad daylight and made it look completely nocturnal. Or is it simply a night shoot for schedule?

    What time does Leno tape tomorrow?

    Levine, just saw that Leno yt. How weird is that?

    edit: sorry, dup

  30. As to songs, I hope IIHU isn’t a single, I think it’s too Europop and the beat sounds like SNL’s Night at the Roxbury (What is Love).

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etEQz7NYSLg&feature=related

    WWFM is definitely the most radio friendly. And FEVER too, if the pronoun thing doesn’t get in the way. I just didn’t like the homage to Poker Face at the end, but I guess if Gaga is coaching you to sing the song a certain way, maybe you have to sing it like her.

    hi, sidewalkstory! Cool that the concert is going to be NYC – except is it really going to be from 8-10 am on 2/14 or do I have my info wrong?

  31. Oh, maybe Adam and band are playing in the club as the story plays out.

    Edited, because I agree that Fever should definitely be a single at some point, it might be the catchiest track on the album. And I LOVE the homage to Poker Face at the end. It kind of feels like an inside joke.

  32. although if I HAD to get rid of one song, it would probably be Sleepwalker .
    I don’t hate it, but it just seems kind of flat- really does nothing for me.

    OMG..there IS somebody else out there that feels the same as I. I have seen so many posts that think this song should be released as a single, and I have never got that at all. It is by far my least favorite on the album, and could never imagine this as a single. Thanks for helping me feel I am not alone in my feelings about this song. :)

  33. Maybe he can make some pocket cash off Dior to live on until he sees any album money ;)

  34. ClaytonMJonson tweet:

    At the Adam Lambert video shoot, shooting a club scene and of course it’s outside, freezing cold…i want my bed

  35. If they’re shooting a club scene, I wonder if Adam is throwing some business to the Upright?

  36. I was really hoping for a video somehow about the press and fans and navigating new fame more than a relationship video. Given everything, that’s what I hear each time I hear the song.

  37. Edited, because I agree that Fever should definitely be a single at some point, it might be the catchiest track on the album.

    I agree. Fever and PUU are some the catchiest songs I’ve heard in a while, IMHO.

  38. The Upright space just from the videos looks decidedly non-club like.

    Actually, WWFM really doesn’t strike me as a club song, so the fact that there’s a club scene – though we don’t know how that relates to the storyline – is LOL.

  39. I have NO CLUE what they’re doing,but it sounds interesting

    To me, though, any of them can be a favorite on any given day

    I think that’s the same for most Adam fans.I know i feel the same way:) (the BEST album ever,flove everything,even though I can never get into a loaded smile.,..)I don’t have a favorite-it changes every day(which is the best thing about th album IMHO)

    i love sleepwalker(but I live pretty much anything Adam,so…;))

    on 2/14

    hey!!! 4 days after my birthday:) :) :)

  40. new tweet fr juliana:

    Adam Lambert looks beautiful in a black suit/tie/snake leather shoes : )

  41. although if I HAD to get rid of one song, it would probably be Sleepwalker .

    Really? That’s one of my favorite! I think it can make a perfect MV. Here is Michael Slezak’s idea about the video:
    “Lyrically, this one conjures up some vivid imagery that you know will make for a super-compelling video clip: A dark and stormy night, with our conflicted Goth hero left a’wandering in the wake of a night of unbridled passion…”

    I can totally see it!

  42. Kanadie, I also am with you on “Sleepwalker” being one of my least favorites. But there is something haunting about it that makes it appealing. I wasn’t particularly fond of “Broken Open” until I listened to Adam’s interview (?Sirius? or Jim C.?) in which he told about the song and its special meaning to him. I went back and gave it a serious listen after that. Liked it better that time. But, hey, they’re all good!!!!

    Also, I really like “If I Had You”. I like dance music, so I’m a target for that one.

  43. I LOVE Sleepwalker. It’s one of my favorite songs on the album. I think it’s very radio friendly and should be released as a single. I’m anxious to hear Adam sing it live.

    I love a man in a suit!

  44. I don’t like Sleepwalker or Aftermath. I still listen to them–his is actually one of very few albums I listen to in its entirety–because they’re not terrible, just not what I like from him.

    I’d love Soaked and If I Had You as singles–angst and yearning in the cold, depressing months of winter. ;)

  45. another music video already? i can only imagine how much the 1st 2 cost tho im sure him and 19 didnt pay for TFM,but FYE had to be up there. All the traveling theres no way they are making money on him right now. They sure are pushing him as hard as they can tho, tryin to drum up real exposure

  46. I think Aftermath sounds very Daughtry; you can totally tell it was produced by Howard Benson. I actually really like the song—it is a good message, and Adam’s vocals are gorgeous. I just think there are WAY more interesting tracks on the album, so it kind of gets left behind.

  47. I personal feel that the album For Your Entertainment gets better and better upon each listen. Though I love the song Time for Miracles is the one song that does not fit in the flow of the album. Master Plan and DTRH fit perfect. Even Aftermath which does sound very Daughtry fits.

    On WWFM I still wish they could re record it and put the trill in on the “its me” like he did on SYTYCD. I love it.

  48. As we await more tweets from the MV shoot here is something from IDF that is pretty funny, but also pretty truthful especially when you are talking about IDF – MJ’s is mild compared to IDF!

    The emotional guideline for all things Adam:

    01. Someone finds something new.
    02. We all happily spazz about it.
    03. One person questions the validity/rightfulness.
    04. Another person refutes the questioning of said validity/rightfulness.
    05. A discussion ensues of the pros and cons.
    06. Fretting begins in earnest.
    07. Tidbits are finally released.
    08. Spazzing resumes.
    09. Steps 3 through 6 resume.
    10. We all love it. It’s better than we could have imagined!!!
    11. Final product is released.
    12. Group hugs all around.
    13. Love Adam even more.
    14. New day/new controversy, return to step 1.

    I agree. At first I was kind of meh about the song but since Adam is one of the co-writers and mentioned that the lyrics were something that meant a lot to him (or something very much like that) I took another listen and paid more attention to the lyrics and now I like the song a lot.

    HAHAHAHA you just described my life since May 21 2009. (just kidding)

  51. A club scene for Whataya Want From Me? That’s not what I would have expected.

  52. All the traveling theres no way they are making money on him right now.

    Just think if his whole band and all their equipment had to travel to 3x as many places! That would be some costs right there.

    Adam has only had to travel to a few JBB’s and his album has sold 300K in 3 weeks. I would think he would be saving the label some money as far as these JBBs go!

    Do a third as much (without travel expenses for a band) but end up with twice as many album sales in less time! Pretty good deal, really!

  53. im surprised they’re allowing these people to tweet stuff from the video shoot. not that im complaining tho! :)

  54. Thanks dhunken and girlygirl! Everyone is so dressed up for this one! Very different feel already.

    and if you listen to the director it sounds like this is going to be where fans are grabbing at him a paparazzi trying to get his picture as he tries to get into the club. I think

    No you are correct – ties in with him saying “Whatya want from me!” to all of those grabbing at him and the paparazzi.

  56. yeah it seems like its going to be a paparazzi type of video with paps and fans surrounding him from the looks of that little behind the scenes vid. I hope theres more to it then that tho. This paparazzi not leaving the celebrity alone has been done to death in recent years with Britney, Gaga, even flipping Lindsay Lohan. Anywho Adam looks absolutely stunning! im sure there will be more to the video. and my god if Adam has been at the shoot since 7am and the shoot is lasting all night he’s not gonna be getting any sleep, plus he has Leno tomorrow.

  57. The video clip has been taken down…Darn! I had to leave for a while and I guess I missed it. But thanks for the description of it anyway!

    Well, I need to get some sleep. Goodnight all.

    Adam does look stunning! This is obviously why he said on Friday night that he was heading home to get some sleep at about 9:30ish. He will be ready for Leno, the boy was burnt out during the latter part of the tour from being sick and the tour bus and interviews and all the photo shoots they kept flying him to and from and still gave it his all when he was on stage.

  59. I’m surprised this person is allowed to leak these clips. Thought there’d be some confidentiality clause for all in the area.

  60. I am hoping Music Again would be the next single. It’s a daring choice but if it worked it could be huge. I think it’s a good choice for his image.

    IIHY, Sleepwalker should def also be released but I would take MA first, then IIHY and Sleepwalker. Radio seems a bit hesitant about dance music from a male artist so if MA came first followed by IIHY it might work.

    Though he has a ton of songs that can be used a singles. Strut, SFW, Fever and PUU? They work too. He can live off this album for a long time.

  61. If I could choose what he release next, I would like Sleepwalker or Fever. Adam’s voice sounds fantastic on Sleepwalker, plus it has great guitar and drum work on that one. Fever is such a dance song, that everyone will be shaking their moneymaker to the beat.

  62. Music video sounds cool. Remember when we got pics of the guy in the leather outfit for FYE and we were like WTF?? That turned out just fine so I think this will be too. I like the concept of it being from his lover’s POV. I can imagine how his new found fame affected his relationship with Drake. The song seems to totally fit Adam’s life right now.

    but I would take MA first

    Someone on pulse reported that MA got some spins from radio…I think it was 9. Probably just random peeps playing sample or something but still….

  63. Today is his last public appareance in a wile right? I guess they will rehearse for the Gridlock concert but I hope he gets a few days off.

    Oh, and there is also a rumour that we’ll know about the live-streaming at NYE today. Maybe he will announce it at Leno.

  64. Reading what the concept of this video is supposed to be, I’m concerned that it could be the final nail. Such a shame because he has so much potential but he’s not getting any guidance or boundaries whatsoever. I’m really sorry about that because I think he’s exceptional. The song works because it’s non-gender specific but if the video is going to change that, it’s toast.

    Yes, today’s Leno appearance is the last one until NYE. The band has got to be scheduling some serious rehearsals to prepare for performing the 10 songs at Gridlock. Adam should be able to get away for a few days as the band can rehearse without him while he is gone like they did last weekend when he was flying all weekend to attend those Jingle Balls.

    You might be right, but I still think he’ll be OK as long as he doesn’t kiss anyone… or do something else lewd.

    But who knows.

  67. So it’s from a lover’s prospective….at a club. Seems I recall some tweets about a month before Adam and Drake broke up from people in a club that were saying Drake got pissed and took off while Adam ran after him out of the club. At the time it kind of got written off since there were no pictures to prove it. Hmmm……

  68. The song works because it’s non-gender specific but if the video is going to change that, it’s toast.

    There are a lot of relationships songs where the word “You” is used and it is not gender specific. That doesn’t mean they don’t show the guy/girl in the video. I don’t think it will be “toast”. I don’t think you give the public enough credit. I think his CD sales are going fine (on par with Rihanna, ahead of Shakira – both established names). Further, I think assumptions are being made prior to seeing the final cut. I’ll wait to form an opinion then.

  71. The song can fit a number of different situations, they may touch on several concepts in the video. Whatever it is, I am sure it will be well done.

  72. If Adam uses the word POV like I do, then the other “person” will be watching the action-or becomes the camera (which is as gender neutral as a POV can get)-and this means they wouldn’t be shown. I can picture this with the first scene-Adam walking into a club, while his lover watches. Or Adam lying in bed-naked-(not really but can hope here) singing to his lover, the camera. .Maybe I am interpreting POV too literally though, but this approach would be a good way to keep it “gender neutral” and please most of his fans and critics.

    I also think that they allow these “leaks” on purpose, to build interest. Just look at the bondage parade for FYE!

  73. “Adam says the video is from his lover’s POV and some fighting…”

    So will his lover be a girl or a dude? Minefield for Adam here. If he goes girl, he pisses off the gays who will call him a sell-out. If he goes dude, he icks out a large part of a country as well.

    Better for him if his lover is never seen.

    Has there even been a major male popstar with an openly gay relationship in a video? Don’t think so.

  74. Hmm, very interesting if they used a lover’s POV filming but never really show the lover. It’s a real challenge to make an engaging MV like that. It’ll be very interesting to see.

  75. Looks really cool! I thought he would maybe have a video in the style of Madonna’s “Substitute for Love” for WWFM, and it looks as though I might be close…

    Amazing how it’s always “oh too bad, NOW his career is REALLY over!”
    I’ve heard that pretty much every week since AI ended (even sometimes while on Idol- like after ROF or after being in the bottom 2)…

    Personally- I’m sure Adam is not toast (or WTH he should be this time) and there is no “final nail”.
    We will be enjoying him for quite some time yet… :-)

  76. We will be enjoying him for quite some time yet’ ¦

    I ditto this!

  77. yay for a new video! sads tho that once this video is out the FYE video will be played less…love that video….on a related note, my 6yo autistic son is constantly running around the apt singing “whataya want from me” over and over….he can’t talk much but every now and then he picks up on a catchy piece of a pop song and sings it over and over….if wwfm is catchy enough for an autistic child to glom onto it, it is definitely very catchy — he has a knack for picking hits, LOL (his last favorite was beyonce’s irreplaceable — “to the left to the left, everything you own in the box to the left”)

  78. That sounds adorable, mmb!

    Now I’ve got “to the left to the left” stuck in my head, lol!

  79. This video can’t come quickly enough!! ADAM, visually and vocally, the best treat ever!!!

  80. If Adam uses the word POV like I do, then the other ‘person’  will be watching the action-or becomes the camera (which is as gender neutral as a POV can get)-and this means they wouldn’t be shown. I can picture this with the first scene-Adam walking into a club, while his lover watches.

    That’s a fine line to walk. Could come off as being from the POV of a stalker instead of a lover.

  81. I have to share this. I shared some Adam perf. videos with my boss on a business trip a couple of months back. She pretty much flipped esp. over ROF. When the CD came out I got one for her and gave it to her for Christmas. She hadn’t said anything and I didn’t want to ask but yesterday she said she listened to the CD and she didn’t just like it, she LOVED it. She said she had been listening to it over and over. Her favorite actually is WWFM esp. after I had her watch the SYTYCD performance ( she thought he was stunning). Anyway, now she is getting just as in love with Adam as I am and we spent a good hour talking about him, LOL!. She is now gong to gift a CD to a couple of her friends! Ok, I think I have done my share of Adam promo for the week, but really, the CD is so full of goodness that I believe it will sell big eventually just on word of mouth!

  82. I would be shocked if Adam used a girl as the other half of the relationship”

    Adam is so true to himself, I truly believe he would never have a girl at the SO in the video.

    Adam is an artist. If he uses to express his creativity with women on this or future videos I will neither be angry nor shocked.

    “Reading what the concept of this video is supposed to be, I’m concerned that it could be the final nail ”

    Adam will never have a “Last Nail” on anything. He’s flying too high. He has arrived. Can’t wait for this video.

  83. ‘Reading what the concept of this video is supposed to be, I’m concerned that it could be the final nail ‘ 

    Adam will never have a ‘Last Nail’  on anything. He’s flying too high. He has arrived. Can’t wait for this video.

    I have to agree…I totally feel that if Adam was to ever put an end to his career it would have already happened with the AMA performance, but from all I have seen and read, it seems he came out of all that looking pretty good actually. :)

  84. ‘Reading what the concept of this video is supposed to be, I’m concerned that it could be the final nail ‘ 

    How can something be a “final nail” until its been seen?????

  85. The clips look interesting but the director has to keep Adam’s mugging and hammy expressions to a minimum. That hurt both TFM and FYE videos. If they can do a restrained video and let the song do the work, I think it’ll be fine. The story is less important than doing a good job on the video itself.

  86. Adam’s mugging and hammy expressions

    Could you please explain those terms to a non-American?

    ________________

    Who said that it hurt the video – the best part of FYE video is Adam sitting in that chair giving that sexy smile/smirk/wink thingy…

    And in TFM what did he do besides walk towards the camera…did I miss something???

    I guess for those of us that like his look – we are glad when he mugs the camera!!!

    I’m just saying…

  88. Who said that it hurt the video ‘“ the best part of FYE video is Adam sitting in that chair giving that sexy smile/smirk/wink thingy’ ¦

    And in TFM what did he do besides walk towards the camera’ ¦did I miss something???Who said that it hurt the video ‘“ the best part of FYE video is Adam sitting in that chair giving that sexy smile/smirk/wink thingy’ ¦

    Agreed!

    So will his lover be a girl or a dude? Minefield for Adam here. If he goes girl, he pisses off the gays who will call him a sell-out. If he goes dude, he icks out a large part of a country as well.

    Also regarding the whole POV thingy, I agree with mitchellvii. Whatever Adam does, there will be a side that will be anti-adam. One side says Adam too gay, another says not enough. Sigh.. Kudos to Adam for being able to take all this.

  89. I think Adam’s facial expressions are one of the things that make the FYE video so good. They also help to keep it “playful” as opposed to the AMAs, imo.

  90. Okay- I think I understand what the “muggung” look means (and yes I love it!), but seriously- what does “hammy” mean?? Anyone??

  91. Who said that it hurt the video ‘“ the best part of FYE video is Adam sitting in that chair giving that sexy smile/smirk/wink thingy’ ¦

    LOL. You are sooooooooooooooooo right!! That is the best part of the FYE video. The video is also selling so someone likes it….. lol

  92. “Who said that it hurt the video ‘“ the best part of FYE video is Adam sitting in that chair giving that sexy smile/smirk/wink thingy’ ¦”

    ITA-That part is the sexiest part of the video. That whole video is full of win. And in TFM? All he did was walk and looked pretty freaking pretty doing it too.
    I am also one who hopes Adam stays true to himself and uses a male SO if that is the concept of the WWFM video. I don’t think it will hurt him at all. Everyone knows he is gay and the people who can’t deal with it won’t stick with him the rest of the way anyway.
    As for the “final nail” comment. Adam is bigger than ever and he came out smelling like a rose after the AMA debacle. In fact from the media and honors that have come his way, he garnered a huge amount of respect due to the way he handled himself in the aftermath. He faced everything alone with no spokesperson and managed to get people talking about subjects that needed some fire lit underneath them.

  93. Okay- I think I understand what the ‘muggung’  look means (and yes I love it!), but seriously- what does ‘hammy’  mean?? Anyone??

    mr, “hammy” means corny, over-acting for the camera, overdoing it, acting like a “ham.”

    According to dictionary.com:
    1. characteristic of a person who overacts.
    2. overacted.
    3. exaggerated.

    People who do that are called “hams.” I’m not saying any of this applies to Adam, this is just what the word means. It’s also used for someone who loves attention and loves to be in front of a camera. Like, “He/she’s a real ham.”

  94. In a year or 2 people will look back at the whole ama/fye first single event as a brilliant move. Someone was talking about Xtina a and her dong diirty the other day, and how she pushed for it but it was not a radio success and equating it with adam and fye. Altho not a hit, diirty served a purpose: it introduced an adult, sexy (kinda skanky imo) xtina to the public wheras before she was kinda pretty princess teenage Xtina. She needed to do this compete with britney and other. Same with fye – fye broke adam away from idol. Made a statement that he wasn’t going to be singing about magic rainbows or living each day to the fullest etc but that he was going to be an adult artist. That is done and now they have moved on to a more radio friendly song

  95. When I look at art, even pop cultural art, I want to experience the artist’s vision. I don’t necessarily want to see myself – my views, my ideas – because I already know those. I’ve said before, I don’t go to an art exhibit and tell the painter he should have used more blue.

    If I listen to songs about breaking hearts or having one’s heart broken, whatever, I want to hear/feel the ARTIST’S take on those experiences.

    So, as a fan of Adam’s I don’t “fret” about his next video or talk show appearance or concert. He’ll express himself as he sees fit, handle the plusses or minuses of his choices, as he’s been doing.

    I’m simply really looking forward to seeing how the hell he and all the other artistic professionals working with him decide to visually portray WWFM in this video.

    I’m very confident, no matter WHAT he does, there’ll be something to think and talk about – maybe a lot.

  96. By the way, my prior post was not to imply that those who sing about magic rainbows or living each day to the fullest are not adult artists. I’m not that articulate today

  97. Adam is an artist. If he uses to express his creativity with women on this or future videos I will neither be angry nor shocked.

    Exactly!!
    After having read all the comments, I must be looking at all of this a bit differently than many others. I look at this video as Adam playing a role. He is becoming a “character” in a story. This is not meant to be a biography of his life. Looking at it this way, it doesn’t much matter if his love interest is male or female. Adam is just playing a part in a film as any actor would.

  98. I don’t know, I kinda like the point that someone made about the POV being from the camera’s viewpoint. I think it adds to the mystery of Adam and we get to see how he reacts to whatever is being thrown at him. Either way he (or the director) decides to do it will be beautiful, wonderful, exciting. It always is when it comes to Adam!!

  99. I love you, luv. And you’re right – it IS about the hair! How will Adam’s hair be portrayed?!? (You make me smile.)

  100. By the way, my prior post was not to imply that those who sing about magic rainbows or living each day to the fullest are not adult artists. I’m not that articulate today

    LOL. David Cook’s coronation song (platinum selling AC hit) was all about “magic rainbows or living each day to the fullest” but I’m sure you didn’t mean to cast aspersions on DC :) It was a corny song that he didn’t choose and that he refuses to ever sing again, but he made lemonade out of lemons with that one, with his nice croony voice.

    Re: xtina’s Dirty video, it was indeed skanky, and I don’t know that she “had to do it” to compete with Britney, it was a choice she made but there were other ways she could have competed. I thought it made her look a bit desperate and like a copycat, rather than making her seem more adult. But she seems to have earned respect over the years in other ways.

    The dilemma about playing a love interest on a video when you are gay is indeed interesting and does present a quandry. I know that in Clay’s videos, when he was closeted, many of his fans wanted him to play a character in love with a girl, many of them I think wanted this to prove (to themselves?) that he wasn’t gay, but he avoided any kind of love interest for himself in his videos. I think it would have been seen later as phoniness if he had made out with a woman in his video.

    I don’t know how Adam will or should or could handle it. Even though the artist is playing a character on a video, it’s not to the same extent as one plays a character in a movie. My own reaction is “no” to him acting out romantically or sexually with a woman, at least now. I think it would seem like a lie and wouldn’t go over well. And being with a man would alienate many viewers, including many women who see him as a romantic figure and want to see themselves as his love interest. I’m curious how they’ll handle it. They’ll probably be vague, leaving it open to interpretation.

  101. As for the ‘final nail’  comment. Adam is bigger than ever and he came out smelling like a rose after the AMA debacle. In fact from the media and honors that have come his way, he garnered a huge amount of respect due to the way he handled himself in the aftermath.

    Yes, that “final nail” comment is pretty hysterical, given the accolades he has received since the AMA’s. His album sales are still good, his single is climbing, his FYE MV is still near the top of I-Tunes after a week and he’s featured in a number of high-profile magazines. His career is just beginning & there’s no coffin or nail in sight.
    The future looks pretty darn exciting!

  102. In a year or 2 people will look back at the whole ama/fye first single event as a brilliant move.

    I agree the ultimate result of AMA will be much better than if Adam had not done what he did. He got the attention of peeps who were paying no attention to him before. And in the end it was ABC that came off looking like the bad guys.

  103. “He faced everything alone with no spokesperson and managed to get people talking about subjects that needed some fire lit underneath them.”
    ————————————————————————————–
    To me, this is an all telling truth. Adam is a newbie to fame. The fact that he handled that whole AMA thing on his own is very remarkable. I’m not so sure established artists with years of media experience could have handled it any better. His growth potential in his career gives me shivers….it’s hard telling where this guy could go within a few years. His complete package of talent, personality, intelligence and work ethic is quite rare. 2010 should be quite a treat!

  104. Thanks for the clarification oceana!

    Must say I giggled to read the meaning of “hammy”… funny word, ain’t it?
    And, yeah, Adam sometimes overacts, but I it doesn’t bother me, I think it’s adorable! I think it shows he’s really giving it all he’s got, and then some…

    I once studied acting, and one of the biggest lessons I learned was that it’s better to over-act than under-act sometimes, because you can always “clean up” someone who’s over-acting, but you can never add more to an under-actor, there just isn’t enough to work with… and so, while he isn’t a perfect actor- bb’s got plenty to work with!

  105. THIS!!

    “When I look at art, even pop cultural art, I want to experience the artist’s vision. I don’t necessarily want to see myself ‘“ my views, my ideas ‘“ because I already know those. I’ve said before, I don’t go to an art exhibit and tell the painter he should have used more blue.

    So well said Bridget! Just enjoy what he’s giving us – he’s doing his best!
    For the rest who are not enjoying it so much, maybe Adam’s style is not for you. He’s a very expressive, intense, and erotic artist, not your plain vanilla singer. He emotes with every sensual cell in his body, and makes most other male singers look boring to me.

    jpfan – you think he’s ‘mugging’ and ‘hammy’? Perhaps you haven’t seen his Zodiac Show, Upright Cabaret and concert tour performances? FYE & TFM videos are comparatively restrained!Adam LOL

  106. I think Adam overacts his facial expressions sometimes. Like if he still was in theatre and not on television. On TV you need so little to see or get the hint on whats being portayed.

    I also think he overarticulated a bit in his previous MV’s. When you sing for real this is REALLY good but it can come off weird in an MV.

    Still there are a some parts of the FYE MV that is just awesome. I love the beginning and the band scene. Also really like when all the dancers fall down on the floor simultanously.

  107. julianna tweets about leaks:

    For the record, the director asked us to take pics and vids with our cellphones. That was our role in #AdamLambert s music video.

  108. I am looking forward to the video. Love the FYE video. When he commands the dancers down… love it. Love his “mugging” the camera. So playful. So Adam.

    Favorite song. Fever

    Least favorite. Aftermath or Soaked

    Nail? Coffin??? Only if he stars in a vampire film!

    I love the hair up. I love the hair down. Anyway he does it I feel like I’m on a merry go round…. ( I know, I couldn’t resist..too much coffee)

  109. Adam looked handsome.

    I guess they were filming the ‘I’m a freak’ part, like Adam is all caught up in the vanity fair to which his lover feel distant. I think there will be filming for the ‘thank you for loving me cause you’re doing it perfectly’ and I hope we can see vulnerable no-make-up Adam (drooling). Maybe the band will appear in between scenes or after the main story line finishes.

    That’s a fine line to walk. Could come off as being from the POV of a stalker instead of a lover.

    Then it will truly be an MV about Adam and his fans. lol

  110. Re overacting- it’s the directors job to tell an actor how much expression to use in each take and then ultimately his and the editors decision which take to use in the final version. Can’t all be blamed on Adam- if they thought it was too much they would tell him.

  111. Ok, i have to comment on this, I am so excited to see this video! Love the look, very interesting concept, taking into account the too gay/ not gay enough accusations that Adam has to deal with. I would not be surprised if they use a girl as the lover, this IS role playing, also, remember the Detales photoshoot( hottest thing ever!). When Adam was asked about that, he said he was creating art, not expressing his own sexuality per say. So, if it is a girl, it is fine, he is not selling out, IMHP. If it is a guy, that may cause too much tongue wagging and controversy and I don’t think that is needed at this point and may hurt WWFM. My take is, It is either a girl lover or someone the viewer cannot see, which is my favorite scenario, will add sophistication to MV. And, I love Adams look, reminds me his “If I have you performance” on AI.

  112. I once studied acting, and one of the biggest lessons I learned was that it’s better to over-act than under-act sometimes, because you can always ‘clean up’  someone who’s over-acting, but you can never add more to an under-actor, there just isn’t enough to work with’ ¦

    Same is true with writing, mr, better to get passionate in the first draft, easier to tone it down later than to create passion after the fact, or so one theory goes.

    also, remember the Detales photoshoot( hottest thing ever!). When Adam was asked about that, he said he was creating art, not expressing his own sexuality per say.

    He did get some criticism for the Details shoot. It was thought by some (raises hand) to be a lame ploy by the magazine (not by Adam) to play down his gayness and make him accessible to his female adorers. Seemed like a bit of a sell-out to some. I don’t know how you handle it though. Actors have this situation too, which is why many don’t come out, they don’t want to limit themselves when it comes to roles, or in the public imagination. It’s a tightrope. And it’s not necessarily that people are homophobes, but one likes to fantasize about people sometimes and then one doesn’t want to ruin the fantasies, but how can you be all things to all people?

  113. Re overacting- it’s the directors job to tell an actor how much expression to use in each take and then ultimately his and the editors decision which take to use in the final version. Can’t all be blamed on Adam- if they thought it was too much they would tell him.

    Totally agree with this.

  114. I think Adam overacts his facial expressions sometimes. Like if he still was in theatre and not on television.

    Possibly so, since it’s a common occurrence when one transitions from the stage to the screen.

    Oceana ‘“ no aspersions intended! I love DC and even have TOML on my ipod

    Least favorites are: Aftermath, Broken Open, and Soaked

  116. Talking about Adam’s theater background, here is a short video where Adam was in the ensemble of Wicked which was on….Jay Leno!! He was starting off on the far left, dancing with a girl, and wearing a green hat, a blue coat and purple pants.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fj97O6rWSS0

    He will perform in Jay’s show again today. (me in teary eyes)

  117. but one likes to fantasize about people sometimes and then one doesn’t want to ruin the fantasies

    But but but- it really doesn’t ruin the fantasy for me!!! Why the hell would I want to see him with another woman for crying out loud????
    I find it to be much more of a turn- on to see Adam smooching some other hot guy (TommyJoe I am sooo looking at YOU).

  118. I can’t wait for Leno. The first thing next morning I will go on MJ’s blog and watch it (I am sure it will be there :) )
    As for the “nail in the coffin” thingy, I trust Adam’s judgment. Of course, he out did it on AMA, but it was because of all these other performances, his heart rate got going and as somebody has pointed out really cleverly before, when a person is nervous, he/she acts they way he/she is used to (vide – Adam’s cabaret performances). So he acted “safely”, i.e the way he knew how. It happened to me once, I was being introduced to my future husband’s parents and I blew it completely, I was sooo nervous, I started running around the table and wallowing like I was batshit crazy. And I am NOT crazy, believe me ;)

  119. But but but- it really doesn’t ruin the fantasy for me!!! Why the hell would I want to see him with another woman for crying out loud????
    I find it to be much more of a turn- on to see Adam smooching some other hot guy (TommyJoe I am sooo looking at YOU).

    Some women are turned on by men-with-men but I doubt that most women are … so it does ruin the fantasy for many, it would seem.

  120. To me, this is an all telling truth. Adam is a newbie to fame. The fact that he handled that whole AMA thing on his own is very remarkable. I’m not so sure established artists with years of media experience could have handled it any better. His growth potential in his career gives me shivers’ ¦.it’s hard telling where this guy could go within a few years. His complete package of talent, personality, intelligence and work ethic is quite rare. 2010 should be quite a treat!

    Very well stated. I will be shocked if Adam doesn’t become a huge star. He won’t be just singing either. He is so much more than that.

  121. Some women are turned on by men-with-men but I doubt that most women are ‘ ¦ so it does ruin the fantasy for many, it would seem.

    I personally think that as proudly out as Adam has been since Idol that any woman still harboring fantasies about him would choose to “overlook” anything Adam might do in his video, anyway, possibly seeing themselves as “THE ONE” that would be so tempting as to sway Adam’s sexuality their way. LOL! Fantasies being what they are, they can be manipulated any which way the dreamer wants them to go.

  122. After having read all the comments, I must be looking at all of this a bit differently than many others. I look at this video as Adam playing a role. He is becoming a ‘character’  in a story. This is not meant to be a biography of his life. Looking at it this way, it doesn’t much matter if his love interest is male or female. Adam is just playing a part in a film as any actor would.

    If Adam can ONLY play a gay male, that will severely limit his song choices and his acting roles, should he choose to step into that arena. We all know who Adam is in “real life”. Why should he be limited in his professional life? Straight men and women are not.

  123. Some women are turned on by men-with-men but I doubt that most women are ‘ ¦ so it does ruin the fantasy for many, it would seem.

    LOL- I never thought I was into men-with-men till the AMA’s either!
    So I think many women may be surprised at what might turn them on.
    And straight guys, too. I’m sure Adam has some straight guys attracted to him… it sounds like a contradiction, I know, but I don’t think it is. I think (and I’m def not the first to think so) people’s sexuality, and especially sensuality, is much more complex than black and white.

    That’s why I don’t think Adam was “selling out” when he did the Details shoot- just being adventurous and exploring new territory, so to speak…

    Having said that, I wouldn’t bet on him having a female counterpart for this video… it just sounds unlikely. Remember- he’s all about the lyrics, and if lyrics say relationship- while I don’t know what he’ll do- I am almost sure he won’t be playing a hetero lover…

  124. Given the cost of his producers, massive promotional budgets, and now a second video, he’s not going to see much $from RCA for awhile, if ever. Hopefully a tour helps things break even and he’s sees something.

    Actually, compared to Kris, his promotion has been minimal. For FYE, he only did one call-in radio interview with Seacrest. The sales from his mv probably paid for the cost of making the video. With WWFM, he’s done more, but probably 10% of what Kris has done for LLWD. Adam’s deluxe albums were pretty pricey, which he sold quite a few of those, so RCA is profitting. Singles aren’t a moneymaker — they are used as a promotion for albums, which Adam is doing fine in the album sales.

    Adam has done many photoshoots, and he gets paid a boatload of $$ for those. He has already been approached for some endorsements, and we don’t know which ones his people have decided on. He may already be doing some (he doesn’t tell us enough).

    Adam got paid handsomely from 2012. Not just having a song in the movie, but he did some press junkets and walked the red carpet. Adam also did a couple of benefits, which he got paid. He will also get paid beaucoup bucks for NYE.

    I’m not worried about Adam; he is not hurting for $$.

  125. Favorite song. Fever

    Least favorite. Aftermath or SoakedNail? Coffin??? Only if he stars in a vampire film!

    My favorites are: A Loaded Smile, Fever, Sleepwalker, FYE, MA, and WWFM.

    Least favorites are: Aftermath, Broken Open, and Soaked

    My top 5 songs are: Fever, Aftermath, Broken Open, If I Had You and Sure Fire Winners

    My least favorite song is For Your Entertainment. I think it’s one of the weakest songs on the album, actually. Don’t get me wrong, though. I still like the song. I like every song on the album. I just think that’s a weak link.

    As for the WWFM music video ‘” I’m excited to see how director and Adam transform and portray the lyrics in an actual mv. I love seeing/hearing people’s interpretation of different songs and visuals and such. So I really hope this video is good and takes off. I’m just seriously looking forward to what 2010 has to bring for Adam. & I’m anxious for his tour to start up around the spring! (:

    For the rest who are not enjoying it so much, maybe Adam’s style is not for you. He’s a very expressive, intense, and erotic artist, not your plain vanilla singer. He emotes with every sensual cell in his body, and makes most other male singers look boring to me.

    Exactly! That’s what I love about him. He is so expressive with anything and everything he does. He’s extremely passionate and is most definitely not your “plain vanilla singer” as you so put it. Man, I love him! Ha.

    wow-this is so complicated.( he should do this,no he shouldn’t,yes he should) .i’m shallow-all I care about is his hair:)

    hahahah. ITA. This video is HIS video, he can do whatever he wants with it. When the video comes out, all my attention would just be on HIM.

  127. mr: ITA agree with everything you said in your post. We must be soul sisters (uh . . . I think you’re a woman LOL).

    Anyway, Adam keeps pushing boundaries and pushing buttons we didn’t know existed.

    It all makes me feel a little confused and strange but kinda happy!! We all laughed at Kara’s reaction after Ring of Fire, but she was just expressing how many of us felt.

  128. I’m anxious for his tour to start up around the spring! (:

    Me too!! I want them to announce dates and cities and start selling ticket soon so that I can lobby my friends to come with me :)

  129. If Adam can ONLY play a gay male, that will severely limit his song choices and his acting roles, should he choose to step into that arena. We all know who Adam is in ‘real life’ . Why should he be limited in his professional life? Straight men and women are not.

    Exactly my point……. Thanks, ScorpioBSB!

  130. He did get some criticism for the Details shoot. It was thought by some (raises hand) to be a lame ploy by the magazine (not by Adam) to play down his gayness and make him accessible to his female adorers. Seemed like a bit of a sell-out to some

    yes, this is what I’m talking about, you and many others see Adam in a hetero situations as a sell out, and I respect that, but I see it as a expression of art, and no, i am not one of those fans that wanted to be that model (Adam is a good actor, but not that good, lol), so I saw it as art, two beautiful ppl, making beautiful art together, making me want to be with my loved one.

    BTW, WWFM was #3 on high noon countdown on Z-100 ( you go Adam!) and Ryan said something about Adam making a major announsment soon of something, I wander what is he talking about?

    When Rob Marshall said he wanted to Adam in his next movie, I’m betting he wasn’t even thinking of a “gay” role.

  132. BTW, WWFM was #3 on high noon countdown on Z-100 ( you go Adam!)

    Does Z-100 have other countdowns? Is the other countdown for time period such as morning or afternoon more telling about if a song is doing well in Z-100?

  133. Uh…me likey men with men too. There may be more of us women out there than you think, we just don’t feel like being berated for it so we don’t discuss it. The people who might have the biggest problem with it are straight men, and they’re probably not the biggest mv audience anyway. IMO straight men criticize men with men, or younger men with older women because they’re so threatened by it. Of course the opposite images are rampant on tv, etc. I’m sure Adam would be quite willing to play a straight man in a movie, doubt if directors are worried about that. Details mag anyone? I’d be first in line to see anything Adam was in. These people tweeting vids and photos remind me of the guy who sent out the Michelin man pic. Aren’t they concerned they won’t be invited to appear in the next video? Kind of foolish of this Julianna gal.

  134. Completely random – but I just turned my head to see what was on MTV hits (volume on mute during commercials), and there’s Adam’s beautiful face singing FYE :-) Ahh, like a little bit of heaven…!

  135. and Ryan said something about Adam making a major announsment soon of something, I wander what is he talking about?

    Really?! Ohhh, intriguing… Maybe tour details…Can’t wait for the Leno show tonight! Adam was in the commercial for it this morning as being on the “naughty list” – lol.

  136. Thanks sidewalkstory – saw the comment you shared from Julianna about their role being to take pics and vids. Don’t know if the director also meant for her to tweet them to the world. Doesn’t look like other people there are doing it.

  137. Adam! Just keep pushing forward. I for one trust your instincts…it’s art and it ain’t that deep, right? I for one will love viewing or listening too anything that you have had a hand in performing/producing. You are amazing and you touch my soul profoundly.

  138. My own reaction is ‘no’  to him acting out romantically or sexually with a woman, at least now. I think it would seem like a lie and wouldn’t go over well.

    That would mean that married artists (or ones in serious relationships) would have to do videos with their partners. Otherwise, they would also be “portraying a lie”.
    That’s what mvs are, a story. The story is not expected to be from home videos from the artist’s real life. I guess all mvs could be considered to be “lies”.

  139. Why should he be limited in his professional life? Straight men and women are not.

    But do we see many straight singers making love to same-sex partners in videos? There is some woman/woman, which is more accepted now, but male/male is, well, can anyone think of any videos where straight men play like they are gay on videos? I’m not saying it’s right that there’s a stigma, but it is a reality and does pose a problem for Adam and his peeps to solve. To deny that there is a tricky situation there to figure out is not realistic, imo.

    That would mean that married artists (or ones in serious relationships) would have to do videos with their partners. Otherwise, they would also be ‘portraying a lie’ .
    That’s what mvs are, a story. The story is not expected to be from home videos from the artist’s real life. I guess all mvs could be considered to be ‘lies’ .

    I don’t think that is the same thing, married artists and actors have always made love to other people on camera, everyone understands that they are acting. But this is a different issue, a gender issue. I think it’s a challenge and it will be interesting to see how Adam and his people deal with it. Maybe it “shouldn’t” be a challenge, in a perfect world, but it’s not a perfect world.

    There seems to be a difference between movies and music videos too. I wonder how other gay artists have dealt with it. Elton John’s always behind his piano, I can’t imagine seeing him pretend to be with a woman actually, or Boy George. I guess whatever adam feels comfortable with and whatever works for him is what he should do.

  140. How will Adam’s hair be portrayed?!?

    Lol! It is an entity unto itself.

    Agree with those who said that Adam’s facial expressions were the highlight of the FYE vid. They did serve to lighten the mood of what could have been a pretty dark scenario.

  141. Does Z-100 have other countdowns? Is the other countdown for time period such as morning or afternoon more telling about if a song is doing well in Z-100?

    I only catch the high noon top 5 and top 40 every sat, both with ryan seacrest . I do listen to z-100 a lot but not aware of anything else.

  142. There seems to be a difference between movies and music videos too. I wonder how other gay artists have dealt with it. Elton John’s always behind his piano, I can’t imagine seeing him pretend to be with a woman actually, or Boy George. I guess whatever adam feels comfortable with and whatever works for him is what he should do.

    IMO, I really have no problem seeing him with women and men in vids. Adam is different from the other artists you mention, because he has kinda toed that line as far as sexuality is concerned to a much greater degree. I completely believe that “bi-curious” line of his. And while I don’t imagine he’d be falling in love with a woman any time soon, the fact that he views sexuality as so open-ended, even for himself, means you can get a little bit of both sides, imo, without it having to mean he’s either a sellout or “too gay”.

    RS vs. Details is a good example. I had no problem with either. Details was not a sellout imo – it was Adam expressing that sexuality can be very nebulous and hard to define. I love that attitude of his, and think it’s very true when you look at changing attitudes in the 21st century.

  143. Geez, I really need to get out of \”lurking mode\” and start posting here. I\’m really feelin\’ the need to belong!!!!!! I\’m one of \”those\” fans that lack friends that share my, let\’s call it \”enthusiasm\” when it comes to Adam.

    \”In response to: mitchellvii – 12/21/2009 at 7:15 am: Has there even been a major male popstar with an openly gay relationship in a video? Don\’t think so.\”

    Not a major male popstar, but a \”boygroup\” (Boyzone) member, Stephen Gately. Sure, the group wasn\’t/isn\’t popular in the USA, but they were massive back in the 90\’s over in the UK, Europe, Asia, and elsewhere. However, they did have a Top 40 hit here in 1999, \”No Matter What.\” Unfortunately, Stephen died in October (discussed on this blog on Oct. 10). I\’ve not viewed this video – I can\’t cos I use a webtv (anybody remember the infomercials for them back in the 90\’s?). I\’ve got a HUGE list of YouTube Adam videos I have to view when I\’m able to use a friend\’s computer (might have to move in with her for a week! LOL) Anyway, check out this link to Boyzone\’s \”Better\” video – I hope it\’s good! Apologies if this is OT, but I thought it fit in with this discussion.

  144. Adam is different from the other artists you mention, because he has kinda toed that line as far as sexuality is concerned to a much greater degree. I completely believe that ‘bi-curious’  line of his.

    I’m not sure how he has blurred the line. He seems to be definitely gay. Has he been involved romantically with women? I am not so sure about the “bi-curious” line. It seems like a good idea to say it though if you have female fans and don’t want to alienate any of them. So to keep it “a mystery” works in his favor.

    It’s his own business, but still it will be interesting to see how he does his videos. BTW, Elton John didn’t come out until late in his career, so he wasn’t in-your-face with his sexuality either. I don’t recall any videos with a female love interest, but then he’s not the most sexy or handsome guy. Adam is more of a sex object, he’s “hot” to a lot of women, so it’s a different issue with him when it comes to videos.

  145. Now when I listen to WWFM, I’ll expect a falsetto in ‘it’s me’ and a repeat of ‘please’ in ‘please don’t give in’. Wonder if Adam will do the same impromptu tonight.

  146. “But do we see many straight singers making love to same-sex partners in videos?”

    I don’t think that is the same thing, married artists and actors have always made love to other people on camera, everyone understands that they are acting.

    The equivalent to straight singers making love to same-sex partners in music videos would be gay singers making love to opposite-sex partners in music videos. Neither partner is representative of the other’s true sexual preference/inclination. Also, many, many male actors have played homosexual characters in movies (James Franco as Sean Penn’s partner in “Milk” comes to mind recently) and everyone then, and now, understands that they are acting also.

    Besides, or more importantly, people NEED TO REMEMBER, that Adam began his career in musical theatre where he “acted” straight in male roles (particularly “Wicked”) where he played opposite a female character! The “Wicked” role, in particular, called for kissing and the believability of an intimate/loving affection for and relationship to one another. I saw the YouTubes, and I think he pulled that off!!! Other instances of gay “actors” playing straight characters could be seen as recently as a few weeks ago! NO ONE CAN TELL ME that ALL OF THE MALE DANCERS ON SYTYCD ARE STRAIGHT – from all 6 seasons!!! Being that the pairings are male-female, with accompanying love/intimacy themes, THERE IS SOME GOOD ACTING GOING ON THERE!!! And I think they pull that off wonderfully too!

    Bottom line…Adam will do just fine in ANY character role he is presented with!!! As ALWAYS, he will be excellently believable and awesome! No Worries!

  147. I’m not sure how he has blurred the line. He seems to be definitely gay. Has he been involved romantically with women? I am not so sure about the ‘bi-curious’  line. It seems like a good idea to say it though if you have female fans and don’t want to alienate any of them. So to keep it ‘a mystery’  works in his favor.

    I completely understand the bi-curious line. It doesn’t mean he’s not gay, but sexuality is about more than love. Let’s put it this way, I think Adam could only find a soulmate in another man, a true love, but, as he’s said, he wouldn’t mind making out with a woman if she was hot and he had enough to drink. THAT’S part of the sexual ambiguity. Again, I never read it as just “catering” to female fans – I think it’s a part of this very bohemian, free love view of sexuality in general.

    Adam is more of a sex object, he’s ‘hot’  to a lot of women, so it’s a different issue with him when it comes to videos

    I do agree with this – him being so open about sexuality sorta puts him, by default, in a no win scenario – as we’ve seen him having to deal with time and time again (post-AMAs, Details magazine etc.) He’s never gonna please everyone, it seems, no matter how he displays his sexuality. (Unless you’re a fan like me, and then any side of him is a-ok ;-) )

  148. I love, love, love the new falsetto in “it’s me!” I hope he does it tonight; it was pretty perfect on SYTYCD.

  149. OK, Adam with a woman/Adam with a guy in the MV, I wonder how many his fans really care. I for one, don’t. As long as it’s Adam, then it’s good for me. As for the rest of the world, no matter what he does, there’ll be always somebody crying wolf, or crying “final nail”, for that matter.

  150. OK, Adam with a woman/Adam with a guy in the MV, I wonder how many his fans really care. I for one, don’t. As long as it’s Adam, then it’s good for me. As for the rest of the world, no matter what he does, there’ll be always somebody crying wolf, or crying ‘final nail’ , for that matter.

    LOL – very true. And on that note, I can’t WAIT to see this MV :-) Whatever it is, it’s gonna be hot! (heck, we already have the Adam clips above to prove it!)

  151. I think Adam proved that he is indeed gay enough. If he wants to play a straight role or a gay role, it doesn’t negate or validate his gayness. I’m just looking forward to another cool video from the glittery one.

  152. As Kinsey writes in Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948):

    ‘Males do not represent two discrete populations, heterosexual and homosexual. The world is not to be divided into sheep and goats’ ¦The living world is a continuum in each and every one of its aspects.”

    The authors add in Sexual Behavior of the Human Female (1953):

    ‘It is a characteristic of the human mind that tries to dichotomize in its classification of phenomena’ ¦.Sexual behavior is either normal or abnormal, socially acceptable or unacceptable, heterosexual or homosexual; and many persons do not want to believe that there are gradations in these matters from one to the other extreme.’ 

    Kinsey also reported:

    ‘While emphasizing the continuity of the gradations between exclusively heterosexual and exclusively homosexual histories, it has seemed desirable to develop some sort of classification which could be based on the relative amounts of heterosexual and homosexual experience or response in each history… An individual may be assigned a position on this scale, for each period in his life…. A seven-point scale comes nearer to showing the many gradations that actually exist.’  (pp. 639, 656).

  153. What is “The Kinsey Scale?”

    The Heterosexual-Homosexual Rating Scale, sometimes referred to as the ‘Kinsey Scale,’  was developed by Alfred Kinsey and his colleagues Wardell Pomeroy and Clyde Martin in 1948, in order to account for research findings that showed people did not fit into neat and exclusive heterosexual or homosexual categories.

    Interviewing people about their sexual histories, the Kinsey team found that, for many people, sexual behavior, thoughts and feelings towards the same or opposite sex was not always consistent across time. Though the majority of men and women reported being exclusively heterosexual, and a percentage reported exclusively homosexual behavior and attractions, many individuals disclosed behaviors or thoughts somewhere in between.

  154. in order to account for research findings that showed people did not fit into neat and exclusive heterosexual or homosexual categories.

    Yes, thank you! This!

  155. I wonder why there is no news on this site about the supposed rescheduling of the Jimmy Kimmel Live appearance??? It’s supposed to happen in 2010. No date set as of yet.

    Lyndsey Parker tweeted the comment: “Adam is to be rescheduled on Jimmy Kimmel live – no date set (yet).”

    Her Twitter Bio: “Professional rock ‘n’ reality fan, managing editor of Yahoo! Music, Reality Rocks blogger, NME.com’s LA Woman, hyperbolist, eternal teenager, geek… “

  156. Has he been involved romantically with women?

    Romantically or sexually? Sexually, yes he has.

    I am not so sure about the ‘bi-curious’  line.

    Since we don’t know Adam personally, nor have we been inside his mind, we really don’t “know” who he has been sexually attracted to in his lifetime. He says he is bi-curious, no one can really say how much or how little that is. It’s a strange situation when others try to decide or interpret what someone else’s sexual fluidity is.

  157. I don’t think that is the same thing, married artists and actors have always made love to other people on camera, everyone understands that they are acting. But this is a different issue, a gender issue.

    Straight men and women have played gay characters in movies for years. I didn’t think the guys in Brokeback Mountain or Tom Hanks in Philadelphia were gay in real life. I understood that it was acting. Neil Patrick Harris plays a womanizer on his tv series. Gay people play straight characters also. It’s called ACTING!
    A mv is not real life. It is acting out a scene.

    Adam has said recently ‘  I am not bisexual’ ¦I am gay’ 

    I’m not sure what this is in answer to, but I don’t think anyone was saying he was bisexual.

    Since we don’t know Adam personally, nor have we been inside his mind, we really don’t ‘know’  who he has been sexually attracted to in his lifetime. He says he is bi-curious, no one can really say how much or how little that is. It’s a strange situation when others try to decide or interpret what someone else’s sexual fluidity is.

    Which is why the best we can go on is what he himself has said. I’m assuming he was being completely truthful in those statements about being bi-curious. That’s all I was saying before.

  159. Can’t wait’ ¦a new performance tonight. Is it live or taped?

    I think Jay’s shows are always taped.

  160. I hope the mv is OTT heterosexual…in your face heterosexual…but if it isn’t, I’m ok with that too.

  161. I think Jay’s shows are always taped.

    We usually hear something from someone who was at the taping…nothing yet? I hope he wears the suit again…although it’s probably too soon, he’ll come up with something different.

    Doesn’t being bisexual mean you have to prefer both sexes equally.

    No…it just means you’re not exclusively attracted to men or women. A bisexual person could easily be attracted 50-50 or 60-40 or even be 90% straight with the occasional interest in somebody of the same sex. They’d still be bisexual.

  164. Straight men and women have played gay characters in movies for years. I didn’t think the guys in Brokeback Mountain or Tom Hanks in Philadelphia were gay in real life.

    LIVE STREAM FROM GRIDLOCK – ADAM NYE CONCERT – MONDAY UPDATE
    I just spoke to Matt, the event coordinator for the Gridlock NYE event, to find out if it was going to be televised or have a live stream from the internet. He said they are trying to lock in a deal for live streaming and it should be finalized by Monday. He said he would let me know via my email and I will immediately post it here and on twitter. He is looking into a pay-per-view deal via the internet. I told him that there were many fans that are not able to make it that would be thrilled if he could make this work. I will post more information as I get it. My wish is that everyone world wide could experience this as I’m sure it will be an amazing concert. Adam’s first real concert! We all want to partake

    MONDAY Dec 21 update – Just spoke with a representative from Gridlock. It will be live streamed from the internet and available access worldwide. Will be approx $5.00 to view. They are in negotiations with Adam’s management today to see if they are allowed to videotape Adam’s performance. I expressed the desire of the Global fans. They have my # and will call when things are firmed up, which may be by tomorrow. Thanks to everyone that is as excited about this as I am. I am one of the lucky one’s that will be able to go. I live in San Diego. I am all of your voice though because I know I would want to see it if I couldn’t go. I will post updates as I get them.

  170. I hope he wears the suit again

    OMG, I loved that suit he wore on SYTYCD!!! He looked so incredibly stunning, classy, and HOT!!!

  171. Wow – Adam on NYE would really make my boring plans really good. I could take a nap then wake up and watch his whole set!!!

    I can’t wait for the Leno performance tonight. I might actually stay up and watch as opposed to waiting until the morning to see my recording.

    I recorded FYE from VH1 this morning so I can see it anytime I want on the “big screen” I also bought the video for my computer.

    I am in official Adam mode, I can’t find anything interesting to be happy about in the R&B world.

  172. MONDAY Dec 21 update ‘“ Just spoke with a representative from Gridlock. It will be live streamed from the internet and available access worldwide. Will be approx $5.00 to view

    Thank you so much for the info, it would be so awesome to see a quality video of the concert!!! I am on east coast so going to the concert is just out of question, but to be able to have high quality videos is the next best thing!

  173. Thank you, FlyGirl, for all you are doing on behalf of Adam’s fans. You know, I still get quite upset when I think about Ryan Seacrest and New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. We all would have been able to view this on TV, and Adam soooooo deserves to be VIEWED!!!! I have moved forward from all of that, but every now and then it creeps back. Of course, it didn’t help matters that an entire page of the Washington Post Parade magazine this week was devoted to a story about Ryan and this yearly tradition of his. I’m hoping it will work out that we will be able to do a bit better than live streaming. Love you, FlyGirl!!

  174. Adam is a great and unique singer and I support him unconditionally. I wish him all the happiness and success in the world. He deserves that.
    Enjoy Adam !!

  175. I’m an idiot when it comes to Pay Per View…can anyone do it? Do you have to have a certain cable package? can you buy it and then record it?…see I told you, I’m an idiot. Ohhhh, he is going to be sooo goood.

  176. Adam is a great and unique singer and I support him unconditionally. I wish him all the happiness and success in the world. He deserves that.

    I second THAT!!! :)

  177. BTW, Elton John didn’t come out until late in his career, so he wasn’t in-your-face with his sexuality either.

    Elton John came out in a 1976 Rolling Stone interview, although at the time he said he was bisexual. But it was only six years into his career, and the news made quite a splash at the time.

  178. omg flygirl that is great news…although i have no clue how it works. i hope it will be explained because i will have it pay per viewing on every computer i can find!!!! ahhh im soo excited!!

  179. I’m an idiot when it comes to Pay Per View’ ¦can anyone do it? Do you have to have a certain cable package? can you buy it and then record it?’ ¦see I told you, I’m an idiot. Ohhhh, he is going to be sooo goood.

    I am soooooooo hoping this will be on Pay Per View. We are hooked up with Cox Communications, and we just call in our order. They take care of it for us.

  180. The PPV deal is via the Internet, not cable TV. At the moment, there are no plans for a PPV deal via cable TV. They are trying to record the event for sale as a concert DVD, but not sure if Adam would like this to be his 1st concert DVD. But it does make sense for him to profit from it, as many others will most likely try to do (of they don’t give it away for free via YouTube) though. The good news is that they are still working out the details of it all and we’ll very likely know for sure what’s going on by the end of the week.

    I’m not sure if you could record the livestream on the Internet on your computer’s DVD recorder without the aid of some special software that captures/records the feed.

  181. Actually, that AO post about FYE is not informed. Many read and thought true, but it’s just some random poster. AO is probably going to take it down soon.

    Correct info is up on PlanetFierce: http://bit.ly/7COfvU Scroll down and you’ll see the headline. Q3 did some excellent journalism and called around until she got the real answers.

    The deal isn’t done yet. If pay streaming happens it will benefit Red Cross.

    4evermomof4 also posted her tweet exchange with some of the Gridlock organizers. 85% likely was the word.

  182. I’m not sure if you could record the livestream on the Internet on your computer’s DVD recorder without the aid of some special software that captures/records the feed.

    And this is what makes me so, so, so sad. :(

  183. Without that “random poster”, no one would have ever known that this may be a possibility. At least the leaked info rallys the fanbase and hopefully prompts us to put pressure on Gridlock to make this possibility a reality! 85% though is a GOOD percentage! Makes it appear as if whatever deal is being worked out is almost done.

    GRIDLOCK NYE CONCERT LIVE STREAM
    NOT FINALIZED

    Daily Planet 12/21/09 4:00PM ET by Q3

    There is a report on AdamOfficial.com that there will be a Live Stream for of the Gridlock NYE Concert. The report is premature.

    I talked with representatives of both Gridlock and Adam’s Management and confirmed that live streaming of the concert is under discussion but is NOT finalized. I also confirmed that any proceeds from online fees will go to the American Red Cross.

    When this is finalized, I will post the complete information.

    Note: Q3 update at 5:00PM – the original post about Gridlock NYE being available online from AO.com has been removed.

  184. So excited if the NYE live streaming turns out to be a go. I’d pay even for a cellcast to hear Adam’s first post AI concert!

  186. So let me get this straight. Info from Planet Fierce, a fan board, is supposed to be more reliable than information posted on AO, Adam’s official board?

    AO is also a fan board. Although it is the “official” fan board, it doesn’t mean that it is always the most up to date. There have been many times that the fans know of happenings before the official board posts information. Who knows? Q3 does have connections!

    PF may be a fan site, but there are some high level folks over there in and out of the industry. There are are also high level folks connected to the industry, who can get some direct info regarding Adam. Sometimes this person has some information that she can’t even divulge to her fellow Fiercians until they are officially announced.

  189. They are trying to record the event for sale as a concert DVD, but not sure if Adam would like this to be his 1st concert DVD. But it does make sense for him to profit from it, as many others will most likely try to do (of they don’t give it away for free via YouTube) though. The good news is that they are still working out the details of it all and we’ll very likely know for sure what’s going on by the end of the week.

    Yes to this! Like the AI tour, many many of us fans would be willing to fork over the money to the official Adam Lambert fund to buy things like a dvd of the show! If people would just make those available, a lot of us would gladly buy!

    And if not, you unfortunately have a situation where people WILL find a way to record it for free from the internet. Just saying

    I’m not sure if you could record the livestream on the Internet on your computer’s DVD recorder without the aid of some special software that captures/records the feed.

    Maybe there’s a reason for that…..whatever…..I always wait for confirmation from Adam on anything anyhow.

  191. Went to VH1 to watch FYE music video and for some reason I cannot find or link to it? Any idea what I am doing wrong?

  192. Yes to this! Like the AI tour, many many of us fans would be willing to fork over the money to the official Adam Lambert fund to buy things like a dvd of the show! If people would just make those available, a lot of us would gladly buy!

    Yes, yes, and yes!!!

    Yes, yes, and yes!!!

    and another YES!…what price would you put on a deluxe boxed set of Adam!!! ..including: all AI performances, variety of AI tour (bra tossing and boa please, and the hat!), Gridock, FYE, WWFM, and toss in some pre-idol CTF and CBTM. OK….just my dream collection, but I have my CC# ready just in case!

  194. And yes yes and yes again Mainegal. How about a calender thrown in too!! The hat was when I saw him in Syracuse. When he threw it back in the audience there was a fight for it. But the owner of the hat won.
    My credit card is ready too.

  195. luval – You can watch it here: http://www.vh1.com/shows/series/top_20_countdown/

    Adam is #16 for the FINAL top 20 of 2009 (KA is #13). Voting for the Top 20 doesn’t start again until 12/26/2009.

    “Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” is the #1 video of 2009! See who else made a splash this year, and come back on 12/26 at 11am EST to vote for the first Top 20 show of 2010!”

    Oh luval…what great memories!! Was that really just a few months ago?… what a wild and crazy trip 2009 as been for us Glamberts!…and Gridlock will kick off an amazing 2010! ….to the PTB….Give us our Gridlock!!

  197. Yes, Yes and Yes to an Adam DVD!!!!!!! of anything!!!!!! LOL

    CC is also ready!!! I mean seriously, I paid $25 for the deluxe DVD just so I could get a few extra pictures! :-)

  198. Thanks Flygirl!

    And Mainegal, I am sad to see 2009 end, but hope 2010 will bring us so much more of Adam…I’ll be in Adam withdrawal after Gridlock. But maybe by then WWFM video will be out. What other tv shows can Adam possibly be on? The tour!!!!

  199. Luval….I missed out on the summer tour..big sad…(glued to youtube instead) ..will NOT make that mistake again!!!! Soooo.. I am planning major investment ( hey, I deserve it!) in Adam tour tix this spring/summer…(kinda of Glambert deadhead). I wonder how many of my MJ friends I’ll meet along the way??….should we wear nametags?

  200. What other tv shows can Adam possibly be on?

    He hasn’t been on Jimmy Fallon yet or any of the late, late shows. Those would be great, too, as they’d possibly reach a younger demographic than, say, the daytime shows reach. I know my son in his early 20’s is up watching during those wee hours while his old fogey parents snooze away! I think he’d have fun on Rachel Ray, too, since he’s into restaurants and, at the moment, healthy nutrition. She’s quick and smart like he is, so I think they’d hit it off.

  201. Mainegal,

    Yeah we have to touch bases on his tour. I saw him twice this summer.Will have to think about our “sign”. Maybe some dead black roses on our shoulders. LOL.Can’t wait!!!!

    Will be watching Leno now.

    ps…a lot of dislike for him but honestly, I don’t mind him. I like a little laugh before bed (have to get up at 5am).

    see ya!

  202. And Mainegal, I am sad to see 2009 end, but hope 2010 will bring us so much more of Adam’ ¦I’ll be in Adam withdrawal after Gridlock. But maybe by then WWFM video will be out. What other tv shows can Adam possibly be on? The tour!!!!

    Hmm, he could be at the People’s Choice Awards – hopefully he’ll show up for that. And in the Spring I’d LOVE to see him on Glee, SNL (and still hoping for Oprah). That would just be awesome!

  203. What other tv shows can Adam possibly be on?

    Forums have been talking and insiders tweeting about a rescheduled Jimmy Kimmel Live performance in early 2010.

    The People’s Choice Awards is 1/6/10 I think, so maybe he’ll show up there. Mostly only the winners (they know before hand) show up to accept the awards, but he just may show up even if he doesn’t win since he’s still a newbie and needs the face time to keep his buzz up and momentum going.

    And like the others have said, any of the late, late night shows (Jimmy Fallon, Craig Ferguson, Carson Daily) haven’t had him on as of yet. Perhaps we should get a tweet/email campaign going to gently “remind” them of this fact. We could bring up Chelsea Lately’s #s to entice Carson to bring Adam on. He’s the late, late night “step-child’.

    Ryan, Rock My Town is February 13, 2010 in NYC. I don’t know if this will be televised or livestreamed, especially since it’s free to all concert goers. The venue hasn’t been announced yet and there are no tickets for sale anywhere. Expect lots of TV promo for this too!

    Also, don’t count out American Idol next year either. You know when they get down to the final 20 (or is it 10?) when the viewers vote, they tend to have live acts perform on elimination night. So I think it’s safe to say that Adam will most likely be on in early spring to promote his tour.

  204. but he just may show up even if he doesn’t win since he’s still a newbie and needs the face time to keep his buzz up and momentum going.

    I’m hoping he may be asked to present at a show like this – I could definitely see that happening, though hope they give him a good script (doubtful, considering these awards shows).

  205. Can’t wait! Idol on Tuesday and Adams music video on Friday! Thanks for the news mj.
