Adam Lambert In The Studio

Entertainment Weekly has posted some spiffy new photos of Adam Lambert working with Rob Cavallo in the studio.   Check them out HERE.

Sample photo caption!

The singer crafted a mission statement for his album, due out next month. ”I told the producers, ‘Look, I wanna do music that’s very rooted in classic rock as far as the melodies, the guitars, and the vocal energy, ‘ ” Lambert says. ”But then I really wanna overlay a lot of dance-y, synth-y, futuristic stuff on top of it.”

Adam’s album will be available everywhere 11/24.

  1. Great pics in the studio. Shows him at work in a natural environment, even though I think these are probably posed. Love the no-make-up, no hair product look.

  2. Those were some nice pics of him in the studio. I love the natural look. I cannot wait to hear what his sound is going to be like because I find it really hard to believe that the industry is already treating him like a star when he hasn’t even come out with anything yet. There has to be some kind of insider buzz about him.

  3. Love the natural pictures, and how relaxed and “at home” he looks in the studio.

    Counting the days to listen to the single and to TFM.

  4. I love the natural look, too. He seems relaxed and happy and totally at home in the studio. Can’t wait the CD.

  5. That is him posing for pics. Unless he is wearing headphones in the studio, then he’s not singing. And if he is singing, no one is snapping pictures. So it’s all him posing for pics.

    As usual.

  6. Great photos.
    But as great as interviews and photos are, I want some music!!!

  7. Nice pictures – love the mission statement, the man knows what he wants.

    I’m very curious about the esoteric songs, those type songs always intrigue me.

    I can’t get enough of his smile.

    Interesting observation, Mysterioso. Actually, he is wearing headphones in some of the photos, and in others he is outside the recording booth, sans headphones.

    I have actually done work inside a recording booth. Most times I’ve worn headphones, but sometimes, for various reasons, I chose not to.

    And is there a law of physics that says one cannot snap pictures of someone who is actually singing?

    But even if he is, as you say, simply posing for pics, then I say more power to him.
    Obviously, there are an awful lot of people out there who don’t mind looking at him, posed or not. He looks fantastic!

  9. So it’s all him posing for pics. As usual

    Huh?? I know it’s early – but I am lost already.

    Lovely pictures.

    Can someone please tell me when TFM is set to release – is it the 16th, 18th or 20th? I need to set my timer. Thanks.

  10. Who cares if he is posing “As usual,” it’s publicity! Duh.

  11. Really great pics. And I can’t help it, I love the natural look.

  12. I love seeing Adam like this. My favorite looks on Adam are no makeup/natural like here or completely OTT – CTF and tour makeup. The in-between stuff is sometimes hit or miss for me.

  13. ”I don’t think an album has to have one sound,” Lambert says. ”I think once you’ve already established yourself with the public, you have more of an opportunity to take some chances and create more of an eclectic collection. I think my album’s gonna do that.”

    I’m worried that this quote can be mistinterpreted, that he sounds a bit cocky in thinking he’s already an established artist with the record-buying public, which isn’t what he meant to say obviously. I just don’t think it quite came out right. Of course he has a leg up over most singers putting out a debut recording, but so do all AI contestants. They aren’t “established” as anything more than reality-TV characters. Hate to nitpick, but this bothered me last night when I read it so I wanted to get it off my chest.

    I can’t imagine that anyone can be laying down tracks with a hoodie covering their ears, so yes, some of these photos look staged.

  14. Adam looks very comfortable in the studio. Pictures are awesome! I am intrigued about the handful of “esoteric” songs that he co wrote. Wonder what the sound will be on them. Who has he actually written with that we know?

  15. Aaaa! Merci devine compliment with my lunch. Beautiful man. Waiting for cd relese.

  16. What a great treat to wake up to!! Thanks, MJ, for finding these great pictures for us!

  17. I can’t imagine that anyone can be laying down tracks with a hoodie covering their ears, so yes, some of these photos looked staged.

    Yes, I thought the hoodie was especially cute! :)

    As for establishing himself with the public– I don’t think it sounds cocky at all. Adam and the rest of the Idols had a huge chance to establish their musical chops on a show that exposed them to millions of people every week.
    Adam was known for mixing it up, taking risks, always surprising us. He’s simply staying true to the identity we watched him develop on the show.

  18. Thanks for the pictures, it’s nice to see him doing what he loves. I’m very much looking forward to the AMA’s, Time For Miracles song and video, single, album, etc.

  19. will: I think Adam is referring to establishing himself (his sound) with the public via his run on AI. Not that he is an established artist. I don’t think there is anything more to it than that.

  20. Gorgeous pics, staged or not. A great way to wake up to a new day — and we’re one day closer to hearing all of TFM!

  21. I really can’t wait to see how Adam’s CD is going to sound like. His so different but in a very good way. That am sure there’s going to be some songs that are going to be really out of this world am sure. I love Adam’s natural look. We really got alot of good looking guys from season 8. I want some really upbeat songs but also at least a couple of ballards. Which am sure we’re going to get. I think am more excited about his album now then I was before. So many CD’S am going to have to buy, plus am moving so I’ll have to wait until we get to New York before I can buy his and Allison’s CD. I know what i’ll be asking for at Christmas time. If I can hold out that long.

  22. Well, yes, I would think that the “singing” photos are staged. Why would they reveal any new material to two new people (EW photographer and reporter) if there is no need for it? But the photos are cute anyway :)

  23. will: I think Adam is referring to establishing himself (his sound) with the public via his run on AI. Not that he is an established artist. I don’t think there is anything more to it than that.

    ITA. In some other interview, I seem to recall Adam explaining this a bit better, saying that coming off of Idol they have the advantage of having already been introduced to a large population — or something along those lines.

  24. I’m worried that this quote can be mistinterpreted, that he sounds a bit cocky in thinking he’s already an established artist with the record-buying public, which isn’t what he meant to say obviously.

    Will I didn’t get that at all – I took it as establishing a platform on AI. Which is what he’s pretty much said in the past.

  25. When people snap pictures at my job for the monthly newsletter umm guess what we pretend to be having conversation and pretend to be typing. Yeah a whole lot of work gets done when people are bustling around snapping pictures and talking to you…

  26. You’re right Teri, that was the interview with Slezak where he explained that performing on Idol gave them an opportunity to introduce themselves to the public; different than coming out as a brand-new artist.

  27. Who has he actually written with that we know?

    Kara DioGuardi, Greg Wells, and his friends Alisan Porter and Ferras that we know of.

  28. I love Adam in these pics, he looks gorgeous. I see the picking apart of his words has already started though. Myself, I am admiring the pretty and the fact that he uses a word like esoteric.( I had to look it up myself, LOL) Only Adam.

  29. I love seeing Adam like this. My favorite looks on Adam are no makeup/natural like here or completely OTT ‘“ CTF and tour makeup. The in-between stuff is sometimes hit or miss for me.

    Oh my God – this is me exactly!

  30. The photo with the sharpie in his mouth is especially cute.

    I never get tired of looking at him…sigh.

  31. pulchritudinous – characterized by or having great physical beauty and appeal.

    Never heard that word before, but I definitely concur :)

    Nothing egregious in those captions and it seems the ladies still find him pulchritudinous.

    We sure do! :D

  33. Night, night, aloha.

    Pulchritude is one of my favorite words because it sounds like it should be something very bad, but it’s quite the opposite.

    Oooh, fun words. I had to look up pulchritudinous, and, yes, I have to say it applies to Adam! Thanks for the vocab lesson!

  36. @halfie re pulchritudinous–that’s why I like the word, too.

    Adam looks so relaxed and happy. I could not care less whether or not they were posed–it’s nice to see him living his dream, even if part of that dream comes with posing for fake recording photos. ;)

  37. Pul-chri-tuuuuuu-dinousssssss

    What a lovely word for a lovely man! Thank you, halfie.

    Also, Adam is pretty.

  38. @halfie re pulchritudinous’“that’s why I like the word, too.

    I am getting a vocabulary lesson today on top of visual bounty- Great way to start the day.

  39. it seems the ladies still find him pulchritudinous

    Quite a few men find him pulchritudinous as well…. :)

    Now I’m really going to bed.

  40. Mysterioso [quote]That is him posing for pics. Unless he is wearing headphones in the studio, then he’s not singing. And if he is singing, no one is snapping pictures. So it’s all him posing for pics.[/quote]

    That is what one does, when a photographer wants to take one’s picture. ONE POSES. Perhaps you’ve heard of the concept?

    Rest assured, Adam HAS actually recorded songs, and WILL have the proof of it out in November.

  41. Aloha ahiahi adamaloha.

    Love seeing Adam in the studio. Nice pictures.

  42. Thank you Adam for making my life just a little bit more fun….

  43. Love the 3rd pic where he has his hand near his head and he looks like he’s cryin’ out a love song.

  44. I love the word esoteric and eclectic isn’t far behind. His quotes are so nice…its refreshing to read and hear things like this instead of the vocal diarrhea that you get from a lot of celebrities. Either Adam is very intelligent and he just has an apptitude for speech and language, or he has worked extremely hard the last few years to be able to say things without stumbling over words and hemming and hahing.

    As far as the pics go…this is typical “inside the studio” material that every singer has in their marketing portfolio. I am sure there is video of him in the studio that we will see in the near future. It’s all part of the promo and plays really well on indepth interview shows. And I am sure that Adam will have a few of these in his future…man, he’s already done 20/20.

  45. pulchritudinous ‘“ characterized by or having great physical beauty and appeal.

    Never heard that word before, but I definitely concur :)

    I guess nobody takes Latin in high school anymore.

    Puella quam amo est pulchra — the girl I love is beautiful.

    Or, in this case, Puer quem amamus est pulcher (something like that; I’m a little shaky on my paradigms these days …)– The boy we love is beautiful. Yes, indeed. As somebody mentioned upthread — quite a bit of boy beauty this season, especially guy one and guy two! Lovely pictures.

  46. it’s all him posing for pics.

    As usual.

    And this is a bad thing because…. why?

    Oh, I see you’re a worster.
    That explains a lot.

    As for me, posed, unposed, makeup, no makeup, indoors, outdoors, anything is good.

    Halfie, you’re a man after my own heart.

    The more I hear about this album from Adam and Cavallo, the more excited I get. They are telling me exactly what I want to hear. The pretty pictures are just a nice bonus. Pretty boy is pretty.

  48. What a way to wake up in the morning! and loving the photos of Adam today.

  49. Mmmmmmmm, nice photos. Actually saw these photos very late last night, about midnight PT; I think there was a link on TWOP. Amazing what peeps find in the wee hours of the morn’.

    Thanks, MJ, for giving these pictures their own thread, even though they are posed (I see a scandal brewing, **posed photos** oh noes!!)

  50. I am excited about the eclectic direction he is taking.
    Many times I would exclaim after obtaining a new album, that after listening to four tracks , the rest of the album sound the same.
    I am looking forward to being surprised with diversity; with his voice as the thread that connects these different sounds together.
    He is not yet an accomplished artist but he has established himself as one who is not afraid to take chances, as one who has the talent to wield such risks. And I acknowledge that quality in an artist as something that may lead to exemplary works.
    And I think it was Ronald Reagan who said – the future is not for the fainthearted but for the brave.

    And I love the way he looks- comfortable , joyful, good looking, killer smile, I can go on and on …. and these are publicity photos , glad they took these at his place of work… where his dreams are spun… as well as mine for his music.
    Well , I will have to take the risk ( as some may think it is ) and listen to all that Adam has to offer in his album .
    Hope to get that album soon. It will be more than worthy.

  51. That is him posing for pics. Unless he is wearing headphones in the studio, then he’s not singing. And if he is singing, no one is snapping pictures. So it’s all him posing for pics.

    What a great treat to wake up to!! Thanks, MJ, for finding these great pictures for us!”

    Yes, thanks for posting these photos in their own thread MJ, although got to give credit to Cindym who posted these pics in headlines in the wee hours of the morning.

  53. The more I read, the more I see…the more excited I become to hear this album. My own musical tastes are so diverse that I know there will be plenty on Adam’s debut to enjoy, especially with his vocals front and center.

    Animated, I love your post! Especially:

    He is not yet an accomplished artist but he has established himself as one who is not afraid to take chances, as one who has the talent to wield such risks. And I acknowledge that quality in an artist as something that may lead to exemplary works.

  54. Oh, I just LOVED the studio pics and Adam quotes! What a great way to start the day! Loving this album even more!

    I hope there’s a little section in the EW magazine devoted to this (I think this week’s issue is on the MJ movie).

  55. Love the 3rd pic where he has his hand near his head and he looks like he’s cryin’ out a love song.

    Nope-he was just “pretending” to sing, because he was posing. I bet the photographer had to coach him. “Okay, now pretend to be singing a love song.”

    Maybe Adam was singing Allison Porter’s rock ballad!

    briarswt @ali22san describe song you did with @adamlambert

    ali22san @briarswt huge rock ballad.

  56. IMDB gets in on the act, re: TFM being screened with TII:

    http://www.imdb.com/news/ni1081666/

    American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert’s “Time for Miracles” video will receive the big-screen treatment as part of the trailer for Roland Emmerich’s doomsday movie 2012, which will precede screenings of the Michael Jackson documentary This Is It beginning October 28, Lambert told MTV News Tuesday. The single is due to be released on October 18 in advance of the November 24 release of Lambert’s first post-Idol CD.

  57. The more I hear about this album from Adam and Cavallo, the more excited I get. They are telling me exactly what I want to hear.

    Yes and yes!! I love me some eclectic, and LOVED all the different sides of Adam on AI. It’s all sounding good!

    It does, doesn’t it? Now I can move on…..

    Halfie, you and Adam belong in the advanced vocabulary club!

    I am so excited for Adam and for us who are soon going to be listening to the results of his hard work. TfM in three days…..

  59. He looks really handsome without makeup. Kinda wish he’d skip it more often.

  60. There has to be some kind of insider buzz about him.

    There has to be… something like.. his range is limitless .. incredible voice/vocal and work ethic .. fun to hang out with.. etc.. etc..

  61. That is him posing for pics. Unless he is wearing headphones in the studio, then he’s not singing. And if he is singing, no one is snapping pictures. So it’s all him posing for pics.

    Damn, another scandal!

    Hillarious! I just spit my coffee on my keyboard. Now, if an artist is photographed for publicity, they are posing for pics. ROFLMAO! Damn! The shame of it all! That’s it-career over!

  62. I loved the pictures, for me for you, he looks good with or without make-up, but I want to know what he was singing.

  63. That is him posing for pics. Unless he is wearing headphones in the studio, then he’s not singing. And if he is singing, no one is snapping pictures. So it’s all him posing for pics.

    Welcome from VFTW. I see you’re tight with greenmelinda. I also see that your favorite pastime seems to be making fun of Adam and especially his fans. I guess we’ll be seeing you on every Adam thread.

  65. OMG, an egregious crime has been committed…call the celebrity police!!!

    A celebrity, in the midst of a worldwide promotional push for his upcoming cd release is actually posing for pictures in the studio from which he is working, oh the shame of it all…..I wonder what they will charge him with-will be a misdemeanor or felony photo-taking crime????

    REALLY, posing has become some major issue now?

    BTW, Adam, thank you for the gorgeous eye candy this lovely Thursday morning!

  66. I always find myself smiling at my computer screen when a new picture of Adam appears. Something about that smile of his just grabs you and makes it impossible to turn away.

    I agree with most others…posed or not, it’s Adam, and his smile just brightened up my morning.

    Your comments on the pictures were sagacious. I am always fascinated by your perspicacity which is only exceeded by your snarkaliciousness.

  68. Oh dear.

    Does this mean that the cover picture of Kris playing the guitar is really just Kris posing with a guitar?

    And the cover picture of Kris in an empty theater is just pretend, and Kris wasn’t actually the first one there?

    Can no one be trusted anymore?

  69. Rowe glad you think the same. I guess many of us think and feel the same about Adam.

    Why does it feel like every day is like a build up towards something… I know what is coming but it’s like watching the a ballgame and its the last 60 seconds.
    Tension is mounting, you get a snippet, a daily increase of news, of new information about the collaborators, ahh, for some sweet release … the pictures here just add to the yearning … some music please.

  70. Sunn – off topic – but Mika is playing here in Boston tonight. I’m debating going – I love Blue Eyes

  71. And is there a law of physics that says one cannot snap pictures of someone who is actually singing?

    Yes.. there’s a law that says one cannot snap pictures of someone who is actually singing in the recording booth in studio. I think only camera man can get in and taping him for his video music while his singing… :grin: :grin:

  72. And the cover picture of Kris in an empty theater is just pretend, and Kris wasn’t actually the first one there?

    HA! And I thought he was just early – lol

  73. Your comments on the pictures were sagacious. I am always fascinated by your perspicacity which is only exceeded by your snarkaliciousness.

    Brizzonculent!

  74. ROFL at the comments here!

    For me, it’s great to see Adam looking so in his element in the studio and discussing the album and his vision for it with enthusiasm. I didn’t take the “established” comment as cockiness. He knows he has to have some commercial elements in order to expand his fan base. But for someone who has yet to release any of his own music, he has had a ton of exposure, through AI, the concerts, and millions of YouTube views of his past performances. The album sounds like it’ll have some more mainstream songs as well as some ‘esoteric’ ones, and that’s perfect. Expand the fan base with the former, and delight/challenge your current fans with the latter.

    And the pulchritude sure doesn’t hurt… ;)

  75. I loved how they snuck Archie in there, hehe.

    Me too!! He was so cute :)

    Maybe Drake is just a close talker. and the car keys lol

  76. In some strange way, I really believe TMZ is trying defuse the ‘gay’ issue as an issue at all.

    I thought Adam would enjoy this video for its irreverent(had to edit, used the wrong word-need more coffee this morning!) tone…

  77. Good morning

    “I wanna rock, I want people to dance, I want people to cry, I want people to smile and laugh,…”And I wanna play dress-up!”

    And I am ready to dance, cry, smile, and laugh!
    You gotta love Adam…he has such ‘postive’ energy around him!!

    So Adam wants his music to be rooted in ‘classic rock’ with a ‘dance-y, synth-y, and futuristic’ stuff on top of it. Well…..that works for me!!!!
    I’m so excited to get this album.

  78. In some strange way, I really believe TMZ is trying defuse the ‘gay’ issue as an issue at all.

    I didn’t see the footage at 1:03 before. Anyone? Adam looked great. As usual (maybe he’s posing, you know. If he is walking, no one is snapping pictures).

    Oh GO! Don’t miss Mika live, you won’t regret it I promise you.

    Back to topic;

    I love this EW piece, the pictures are lovely as usual when Adam is the subject. Two particular quotes made this article special for me though.

    The first:

    The singer crafted a mission statement for his album,

    The second:

    ”There’s also a handful of songs I helped write that are really close to me,” he says. ”They’re not quite as obviously commercial; they’re a little bit more esoteric.”

    Can’t wait to hear this music!!!! Is it November yet?

  80. Everyone,
    We may want to watch ET tonight, since they bumped their original listing about Adam’s music video from the show last night for a 2nd Gosselin story (I know, UGH), maybe they will play it tonight.

    I’ll be watching to make sure, just in case

  81. BeckyMD,

    And if he is posing, we have to call the celebrity police again- oh no, two possible violations in two stories in two days!!! He will accumulate a lengthy celebri-record at this rate!!!

    I thought Adam would enjoy this video for its irreverent(had to edit, used the wrong word-need more coffee this morning!) tone’ ¦

    I think you’re right. I don’t normally like TMZ (ok, I actually despise them LOL) but I laughed at the sarcasm and irreverence (yep, used your word!). Rather than coming across as if they were ridiculing Adam, it’s instead a big ole DUH! to those out there who have trouble wrapping their brains around the reality and (yes, get used to it) normalcy of same-sex couples. (Tiny) Kudos to TMZ. (Wow, never thought I’d write that. But I did qualify it. Kinda.)

  83. Wow! The TMZ was pretty funny. I got none of the underlying malicious tone that had been there in earlier.

  84. Wow! As usual, Adam is so great to look at in these pictures. He clearly has a vision for the kind of music that he wants to make, and I can’t wait to hear it come to life!

  85. Yeah, Sunn! Who crafts a “mission statement” for their album??? Hello? Talk about someone with a single-minded purpose. Jeez. If even half of corporate America would be so focused…

    ETA: His thought process is fascinating. How can I continue to be amazed?

  86. And is there a law of physics that says one cannot snap pictures of someone who is actually singing?

    Well, you know, generally when you’re in a sound booth and the recording or the radio show or whatever is actually going on, you don’t want anybody in there whose activity you don’t want recorded or broadcast. And I’m assuming that you wouldn’t want the camera clicks or the photographer’s shuffling around the room in the recording, right? So — yeah — I think there is sort of a law of physics …. You could photograph the person from outside the booth… but there’s a different quality to a picture when there’s a bunch of glass i nthe way!

  87. I can’t get enough of his smile either. I love that he is always smiling and cheerful. He oozes charm and goodwill if that makes sense.

    So psyched for his album. This was the best description yet and it sounds just right. Exactly where I was hoping and expecting him to go until he began emphasizing electro pop in his descriptions. I actually liked the synth sounds that were laid onto Satisfaction and PTFM on AI. If his music is in that general area I will be very happy. Eclectic sounds perfect. I get a little bored if all songs on an album sound the same.

    ‘Look, I wanna do music that’s very rooted in classic rock as far as the melodies, the guitars, and the vocal energy,’ ‘  Lambert says. ‘ But then I really wanna overlay a lot of dance-y, synth-y, futuristic stuff on top of it.’ 

    This statement makes more of a definite mention of classic rock instead of the just a nod to classic rock statements previously.

    And esoteric songs? Cool! His favorite band Muse has wrote some very esoteric tunes. His personal philosophy is one of the things that intrigues me. I have read on this blog that people do not want to discuss his spiritual views or personal philosophy but to me that would be much more interesting than discussing his BF ad nauseum.

    Thank you to all of you that search the web and post the lastest info here. I very much appreciate it.

    To the people that don’t care for Adam or his music, that’s okay. There are a few big music artists that I don’t care for and they do just fine without my support.

  88. he had me at ‘mission statement’ . ambition is so sexy.

    He had me at “mama”!

  89. Welcome from VFTW. I see you’re tight with greenmelinda. I also see that your favorite pastime seems to be making fun of Adam and especially his fans. I guess we’ll be seeing you on every Adam thread.

    Thanks for this info tiger92. It all makes sense now. On AMA announcement day, wll kept peppering my posts with Kris interjections. Unfortunately, I took the bait and got myself into trouble with mj and other Kris sympathizers by calling it “Adam’s day”. I don’t feel so bad now about being on the naughty step.

  90. And is there a law of physics that says one cannot snap pictures of someone who is actually singing?

    Adam, welcome to Earth. Please don’t violate the law of physics here by singing and being taken pic and being pulchritudinous at the same time.

  91. The fact that Adam has crafted a mission statement for his album is testament to the fact that he is a consumate professional, which has been borne out in the comments from every person who has worked with him.

    He has planned and thought out every detail, and wants to implement a vision that is thoroughly his, nothing left to chance.

    I have to respect his intelligent, business like approach to his artistic endeavors.

    Bravo, Adam!

    he had me at ‘mission statement’ . ambition is so sexy.

    :) ha, yes it is. Love his determination and tenacity.

  93. He looks lovely and very happy. I can’t wait to hear what he’s actually singing.

  94. His favorite band Muse has wrote some very esoteric tunes. His personal philosophy is one of the things that intrigues me. I have read on this blog that people do not want to discuss his spiritual views or personal philosophy but to me that would be much more interesting than discussing his BF ad nauseum.

    I didn’t realize his spiritual views/personal philosophy were verboten on here. Oh well. It certainly is an interesting topic, and sounds like something we might want to chat about over in Planet Fierce. Discussing BF not required. ;)

    And to weigh in on the studio pictures, he does look natural, relaxed and confident. He is so photogenic. Posed, not posed: who gives a rat’s patoot. Sexy is sexy.

  96. Tension is mounting, you get a snippet, a daily increase of news, of new information about the collaborators, ahh, for some sweet release…

    Almost like foreplay, n’est pas?

  97. I must enjoy Planet Fierce because I almost missed Cate’s post because of Rowe’s right above it.

    I am clearly getting old.

  98. Ahem, Rowe. Only adamaloha and she assures me it’s just the time difference. (But if anyone has some Vitamin Bob, feel free to send me a sample).

    I do think that Adam is smart to keep talking about how much control he has over this album. Certainly, if there should be problems it will be harder to distance himself from them. But it sets him apart from the assumptions that people make about Idols and their lack of control. He wants to stand out and is not risk-averse.

  99. Adam putting the headphones on and getting ready to sing his heart out for all of us. His c d has got to be great.
    I cannot get enough of Adam. I am so happy he is fullfilling his dreams.
    I am so glad to go along for the ride. Dream on Adam. Whatever you do will be great.

    You’re so right, and it’s just another positive to put in Adam’s column. Because even if he *doesn’t* have as much control as he’d like us to believe, by saying he does he is willingly taking full responsibility for what happens next. To me, that is not only a sign of maturity but of integrity. They will be no finger pointing from Adam when all is said and done. He’s got courage, in more ways than one.

    Thanks for defining. I thought it meant how he looked in his tight pants — but when you think about it, it can still refer to that.

    I get the sense that Adam truly has as much control as he wants over his CD. That’s not to say that I think he has ultimate control, but that in previous interviews he has commented that he likes to collaborate, to work as a team on things. I don’t think he ever wanted to be fully in command, just to be able to have a voice in the process and decision-making, and I think it appears he’s getting that.

  107. Haven’t checked on Amazon lately, how is Bob anyway?

    Bob is incognito right now, but Adam’s CD is holding steady at #7 in music. I haven’t checked the “rock” category since early this morning; it was #2 in rock then.

  108. I’m just amazed that after nearly 3 weeks, Adam’s untitled CD is still in the top 10!

    In some strange way, I really believe TMZ is trying defuse the ‘gay’ issue as an issue at all.

    That would be great. It is very funny. TMZ is almost making fun of themselves (or paps in general). They have wanted a kissing picture since they first heard of Drake and saw him with Adam. Now that they have it- maybe they were waiting to do this piece, waiting to get that pic.

    It feels so liberating to have artists like Adam and Lady Gaga that are out of the closet at the beginning of their careers. It is personally a big relief to me that society is headed toward acceptance. It can be painful to watch people you know and care about have to hide their sexuality.

  110. from thedoctorluke

    OK gonna work on this Adam L track tonight and put some old vintage synths on it…. bring some history to it…..
    about 10 hours ago from web

  111. luv how Adam get a prominent mention even in this Urban Mecca AMA article:

    http://urbanmecca.net/news/?p=9536

    Love when media just refer to him as singer/recording artist, instead of runner-up AI

    Interesting he got more of a writeup than superstar J-Lo.

  112. VAlilac, thanks for the dr luke twitter.
    I am so glad to see all the industry people are excited to work with Adam. It’s been said before but he really must make a great impression and has the respect of these talented people. It says so much about Adam each time we see them mention him in tweets, interviews and articles.

    And since I’m at work and can’t follow twitter I appreciate the sharing.

  113. halfie, just remember it’s the little GREEN pill, not the purple one. That’s for earth people.

  114. I think the only people who have no control over their albums are the ones that don’t know what the hell to do. Adam may or may not have written or co written some tracks, but his vision for what he wanted started way back in the season when he tried to do BTBW. I knew what he was going for, but bandzilla and the people in the recording studio couldn’t deliver the electro beats he wanted. That is what I am most excited about- i want to see if the people he is working with deliver their end of the bargain.

    Synthesizers? Bring some history? I wonder if we are talking 80’s ( Depeche Mode, Soft Cell- new wave) or 70’s (Yes, Kraftwerk, Bowie- prog)???????

  115. Is anyone planning to buy the single Time for Miracles?

    (rolling in the floor laughing hysterically.)

    If you are, please tell me Where and What Time on October 18 you will be going to get the link to purchase said music. I do not seem to recall anyone saying exactly where it will be available OR what time to look for it.

  116. Old vintage synth? Any ideas what that would be? Anyone?
    eta: thanks studio 57, makes more sense now

  117. Dallas- I am hoping it will be on Itunes. I am just getting the song, not the album. Amazon has it too ( both the mp3 and the album)

  118. Vitamin Bob??

    These are great pictures of Adam. I also agree with you guys regarding his taking responsibility for whatever product he puts out. Just as he was willing to do with his performances on American Idol, he’s willing to put himself and his ideas out there. For some it didn’t work (ie. the polarizing response to Ring Of Fire), but I always felt that Adam went balls to the wall every week. No fear in him, he wasn’t scared about being polarizing, he wanted to perform HIS WAY. Whether he is getting HIS WAY or not with this album, he has me believing that he is and that the album will be HIM, as he wants us to see him. I love that about him.

  119. Thank you Studio57. So at this point, only Amazon has an mp3 listed for upcoming sale. 12:01 a.m. on the 18th? Anybody know the s.o.p. for this? Of course you do (somebody.)

  120. Beehiway- I edited my post above to ask that same question- I am wondering if we are talking 70’s or 80’s here. I really keep thinking Adam is going to go for a New Wave sound like Depeche Mode. Sort of how Gaga goes for that Missing person’s sound. That would be cool. Almost like a Gary Neuman “Cars” sound.

    BUT, since he always says he likes classic rock I would die if it was more of an updated prog rock sound like Yes. More than Bowie, Adam reminds me of Jon Anderson in his theatricality ( and vocal power).

  121. Do you think TFM will be available for download on iTunes on Sunday? I think Tuesday is more likely. I might not lurrrve it, but I have to have it. :) I want his 1st single, TBD! :)

    Geez, RL is just keeping me away too from you all. I miss you! *snif* But God, he looks HOT in that photo. As I said in the headlines thread, he is like a kid in a toy store. He is getting his gifts and sharing them w/ his friends and sibling (and in this case, the world). Soooo happy for the guy who got treated like shit by the Wicked Company in LA.

    Mission statements rock! Honestly, this record is gonna be siiiick! I really believe this.

  122. I am so glad to see all the industry people are excited to work with Adam. It’s been said before but he really must make a great impression and has the respect of these talented people. It says so much about Adam each time we see them mention him in tweets, interviews and articles.

    Adam certainly has the buzz, not only from fans but industry folks. Thus, getting the AMA announcement gig and being invited to perform. This goes to show how much confidence the AMA producers have in Adam’s performance abilities: no album released, no single, just a snippet of a movie soundtrack.

  123. 10/20 would make more sense for the song to be released for purchase, right?

    I’m guessing the 10/18 that Cavallo and Lambert were throwing around was for the first airplay or full internet “leak”.

  124. Tension is mounting, you get a snippet, a daily increase of news, of new information about the collaborators, ahh, for some sweet release’ ¦

    Almost like foreplay, n’est pas?

    Can foreplay be TOO long? Discuss!

  125. You know, I don’t think it matters if it is 10/18 or 10/20- Amazon presales showed Adam Lambert fans will find it and buy it.

  126. BUT, since he always says he likes classic rock I would die if it was more of an updated prog rock sound like Yes. More than Bowie, Adam reminds me of Jon Anderson in his theatricality ( and vocal power).

    I loveee YES. We have all their music.

  127. LOL on the TMZ video!!!

    KISS!!!

    Voiceover: Is Adam Lambert gay???

    My response: No, he just likes to kiss guys, like his boyfriend. ;)

    Adam does tend to make you reach for the dictionary for words to describe him. I wrote someone about his “rampant sexuality”, and found myself looking up “rampant” to make sure I used the right word.

    rampant adj. of a person or activity, violent or unrestrained in action or performance.

    Wasn’t a big Yes fan myself but they did have and esoteric foundation to some of their music and Anderson sang a song called “for me for you.” kinda find that amusing in a Randy kinda way.

  132. Dallas: As of right now I only see Amazon US listing Time For Miracles available for download Oct. 20th.

    Yes I am buying the single, yes I pre-ordered the 2012 soundtrack (the listing sounds amazing) and I pre-ordered Adam’s CD. I will probably also buy the i-tunes LP and any other single that comes out and I will see 2012 opening weekend.
    I figure all told under $50 for total enjoyment. Even if I get two copies of something. I’ve spend more on things I like alot less.

    In most cases, not. What dissapoints me the most is that it seems that Adam will not be singing his new single live prior to the AMAs. I finally got that through my thick scull.

    All this time I thought that as soon as his single was released he would be singing it on all the relevant TV shows. IMO Adam will be in demand for a spot on the major shows cuz i seriously believe the ratings go way up when he is on. I know I would make a point to catch ANY show he is on as I would guess most of his fans would do.

    At least maybe we can hope that he will sing TfM live, maybe. Or at least we will be able to watch the video, or buy it, i hope.

    I certainly hope that we don’t have to wait for Jackson’s movie to see the video.

  134. These are great pictures of Adam. I also agree with you guys regarding his taking responsibility for whatever product he puts out.

    Rickey Minor said in a fairly early interview during AI8 that Adam wasn’t afraid of anything. He said others were often wary about taking chances, but not Adam. Rickey didn’t conceal his admiration for Adam.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Adam has more control over his CD than any other Idol has ever had when working on a first recording through 19R. None of the others probably ever had as clear a vision of what they wanted and as innate a sense of what works and what doesn’t. Those unusual abilities had to be obvious to TPTB at 19R and RCA, so my guess is they are looking at Adam as more a partner in this production than as somebody they have to carefully manage and direct.

  135. Okay, I’m late to the party and you guys are cracking me up!!

    @halfie, pulchritude, indeed.

    This has me a little distressed too, beehiway, because Adam will be doing prerelease press the week before the AMAs ‘“ he has to. He already has the shortened week of Thanksgiving that tightens his N.Y. media rounds. L.A. media rounds have to be the week before to capitalize on the prerelease and sweeps week. This means he will be doing his L.A. media prior to the AMAs ‘“ and he can’t perform his single when he’s promoting his CD? Makes no sense, but if it was a tradeoff for the appearance, I understand.

    My only conclusion is that he will be performing TFM, which is also a little strange since because he says TFM is not indicative of what the CD will sound like. Hmmmm.

    I mean, I’m glad, but it will be a little strange I think for at least the L.A. leg of the PR rounds. Well, as long as he’s singing, being dazzlingly engaging in interviews and bringing the pretty, I’m all good.

  136. Can you even imagine the amount of people that are going to see Time For Miracles on October 28th? It is boggling my mind! They are expecting THIS IS IT to have a bigger 5 day opening than The Dark Knight:

    You saw how all of MJ’s music had record sales. I expect the movie to be the same, especially since it is only going to be out for two weeks. I wasn’t going to see it, but to see Adam on the big screen has changed my mind. I expect TfM to be very, very successful for Adam, both the audio and video. They are going to put the video for sale, aren’t they?

    I am bummed out that first single TBD won’t be performed prior to the AMAs from what I read you guys posted earlier. I mean, it’s very cool that it will debut in front of so many ppl, but somehow I cannot see TFM working out without the orchestra. Of course, we haven’t heard the whole thing, so I’m just speculating. No singing on the press junket? I guess the press junket won’t take place until after the album is released…Obviously, I am behind the rest of you…not literally…

    ETA: So far I have purchased:
    MJ movie ticket with Adam’s vid
    Pre-ordered of TBD on amazon
    Ready to download TFM
    Ready to pre-order TBD on iTunes
    Ready to download 2012 soundtrack on iTunes
    Will download Twilight soundtrack…oh, wait, that’s not Adam. ;)

  139. This is my first foray into idol fandom, but I hear people talking of first albums and mentioning idol drek. Listening to Cavallo’s interview and hearing him talk about Adam’s vocals, and about staying up until 4:00 in the morning to work on tracks, and listening to the tone he uses when he talks about Adam as one of the most gifted singers he has ever recorded, I’m thinking maybe some of these guys are feeling creatively excited about what they have to work with- and feeling that stimulating, creative energy that challenges them to be at their creative best as well. When people feel that creative adrenaline charge, really good things can happen. Here’s hoping.

  140. I love Adam in these pics, he looks gorgeous. I see the picking apart of his words has already started though. Myself, I am admiring the pretty and the fact that he uses a word like esoteric.( I had to look it up myself, LOL) Only Adam.

    No…Cookie is a fellow word nerd. Love that about them both!

    Love the pics too. Love the outfit. I simply cannot wait for the album. I am most concerned about how it will be received by non-Idol peeps and Adam’s peers in the music industry. I am excited actually! Yay for another Adam post!

  141. I mean, it’s very cool that it will debut in front of so many ppl, but somehow I cannot see TFM working out without the orchestra.

    Adam will figure out a way to make his vocals sound great.

    Lynne- I couldn’t agree more. Adam just has this really positive aura around him. It’s infectious.

  143. I am a huge Yes fan and have never hear ‘For Me For You’ .

    It was by Journey, not Yes, and Randy Jackson wrote it.

    Oh, no doubt. But I don’t think TFM is going to represent him as well as his tracks on his album. He WILL find a way to make TFM work, tho, you’re right. He sang Muse acoustic and it sounded just fine. ;)

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000005S6Y/jonandersonon-20

    Oops, I guess it was a [jon anderson-Yes band member] solo disc and not a Yes band disc. And it is “For you For me” (i got it backa–wards) You can listen to a snippet on Amazon.

  149. I cannot see TFM working out without the orchestra.

    I am pretty confident that there will be ample opportunity to hear Mr. Lambert sing Time for Miracles live and that he will manage to do so effectively.

    IMO, too much is being made of the distinction between Time for Miracles and the music on Lambert’s first album. It’s all part and parcel of the Adam brand.

  150. I thought Adam was performing one of his own songs for the AMA’s. Is someone suggesting that TFM will be the song on the AMA’s?

  151. IMO, too much is being made of the distinction between Time for Miracles and the music on Lambert’s first album. It’s all part and parcel of the Adam brand.

    I mostly agree with this but it is Adam who keeps making the distinction. He really seems to want to communicate how different his album will be from TFM.

    Still, yes, all part of a brand.

  152. sidewalkstory, I *think* folks are suggesting that if Adam is contractually obligated to debut the performance of his first single at the AMAs, it means he can’t perform it before then on any press junkets to promote his album. So instead of doing his regular single on the talk show circuit prior to the AMAs, he might be singing TFM on these talk shows and radio interviews (if he performs live at all prior to the AMAs).

  153. I thought Adam was performing one of his own songs for the AMA’s. Is someone suggesting that TFM will be the song on the AMA’s?

    No, sidewalkstory, just the opposite. They said that the AMAs would be the debut performance of his album single, which draws us to the logical conclusion that he will NOT be performing it any other time prior, even though it will be released.

    So knowing that he will be doing pre-drop press for his album (as is standard for any artist) and he cannot sing the single until Nov. 22, we are drawing the logical conclusion that he will have to sing TFM for any press appearances prior to the 22nd.

    After the 22nd, when he’s in New York, I’m sure it will be all about the single.

    Oops, Rowe, we cross-posted. So, in summary … what Rowe said.

    Oh no. Adam said he will be singing his debut single. It’s just that it has been interpreted here (by those having more insight about this things than moi) that the AMAs will be the FIRST time he sings his new single live.

    Hey music promo gurus, do I have that right?

    Edit: see Susan’s post above :)

  155. I do not like his hair. It looks like he’s wearing a bump it, lmao. at least he shaved that nastiness off his face though.

  156. I do not like his hair. It looks like he’s wearing a bump it, lmao. at least he shaved that nastiness off his face though.

    It’s really getting long lately. I think I prefer the spikey hair more…

  157. LOL susanM and beehiway – great minds post alike. ;)

    You know, I’m wondering if we’re misinterpreting this. Reading the Reuters version of the AMA press release it actually says:

    “The AMA’s will be Adam Lambert’s debut performance of music from his forthcoming CD release.”

    Performance of music – might it mean a medley of songs from the CD? Or the big, flashy production number vs. a low-key radio station session? Maybe that’s the way around the performance of the single at any other event: the debut of a particular type of performance, not necessarily the first time the song is sung live.

    Just grasping here, and trying to make it as easy on Adam (and, well, we fans of course!) as possible. Wordsmithing is such fun…

  158. The hair looks alright, like, well done, but I don’t think it suits him. Spikey hair is better.

  159. Thx for the explanations. I just saw Adam’s AMA interview where he clearly says he is perf his single for the first time on the award show so it makes sense that he may perform TFM before that.

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

    edit: I see that this was posted while I was typing but this link is the YouTube one (fr their YT channel)

  160. sidewalkstory, I *think* folks are suggesting that if Adam is contractually obligated to debut the performance of his first single at the AMAs, it means he can’t perform it before then on any press junkets to promote his album. So instead of doing his regular single on the talk show circuit prior to the AMAs, he might be singing TFM on these talk shows and radio interviews (if he performs live at all prior to the AMAs).

    I’m wondering if they all decided (including 19/RCA and AMA producers) to debut the performance at the AMAs for ratings. I think the anticipation has been building, esp when his pre-sales skyrocketed w/no promotion whatsoever. I think the industry may be more excited than Adam’s fans (is that possible) for his debut performance.

  161. rowenaaine i think there were a couple versions of that AMA announcement. That is what confused me initially. On one of yesterday’s threads an announcment was posted that said he would debut his single. I will try to look for it.

    Alison I’ve missed you!! I thought maybe we were getting Anoop scoop without hoops from Slezak yesterday. I was hoping for you!!

  163. Slezak must read our posts(it is all about the pretty!):

    EWMichaelSlezak Good news: EW has a new gallery of pretty pictures of @adamlambert in the studio! Bad news: No accompanying audio! http://bit.ly/129gmh 1 minute ago from web

  164. sooo yesterday when I was actually here was news-less?

    anyway

    I AM IN HEAVEN RIGHT NOW!!!

    …and hi;)

  165. Adam said he will perform his single live for the first time on the AMA’s. NOT TfM. And he also said that, though this will be the first live performance, the single will be heard prior to that.

  166. beehiway – yeah, I saw that too and it was quite confusing. PR Newswire has the same one that Reuters put out, and it appears to be the official one from Dick Clark Productions.

    http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/2009-american-music-awards-nominees-announced-64091832.html – again with ‘The AMA’s will be Adam Lambert’s debut performance of music from his forthcoming CD release.’ 

    What I am thinking is…even if Adam said on Ryan’s radio show that he is performing his single, he doesn’t even know what his single is yet! It will be a little while in the making before we really know what he’s going to do…and judging by how TPTB have kept secrets up to now, we won’t have a clue until he steps onto that stage on Nov. 22. :)

    You know what though? It’s ALL GOOD!!!!!

    And is there a law of physics that says one cannot snap pictures of someone who is actually singing?

    Well, you know, generally when you’re in a sound booth and the recording or the radio show or whatever is actually going on, you don’t want anybody in there whose activity you don’t want recorded or broadcast. And I’m assuming that you wouldn’t want the camera clicks or the photographer’s shuffling around the room in the recording, right? So ‘” yeah ‘” I think there is sort of a law of physics ‘ ¦. You could photograph the person from outside the booth’ ¦ but there’s a different quality to a picture when there’s a bunch of glass i nthe way!

    Sorry, Lucy. I couldn’t find the “facetious smiley” :)
    But in order to look like one is singing it helps to actually sing while the photog is snapping away!

    Absolutely! Our cute little birdie is taking off and soaring high.

  169. All I still care about is: Power Vocals…Rock…Ballads! (smiley)

    I’ve tried to keep track but it just keeps coming…so far I’ve got producers Adam has worked with:

    1. Rob Cavallo (6-7?)
    2. Red One (6)
    3. Dr Luke (1)
    4. Max Martin (1)
    5. Greg Wells (2?)
    6. Ryan Tedder (4?)
    7. Linda Perry (1)
    8. Howard Benson (1?)
    9. Claude Kelly (1?)
    10. Matrix (writers or producers)

    Writers – Aimee Mayo, Ryan Tedder, Sam Sparro, Desmond Childs, Ferras etc.

    25? tracks – it seems like alot – does anyone know if this is usual for a first recording? Deluxe CD?

  170. 25? tracks ‘“ it seems like alot ‘“ does anyone know if this is usual for a first recording? Deluxe CD?

    I don’t know if it is a lot or the standard…the only thing I do know is Adam said they had about 30 songs that they were going to pick 12

    I do not like his hair. It looks like he’s wearing a bump it, lmao. at least he shaved that nastiness off his face though.

    OOOH… I LOVE the hair! looks sexy.

    And– Hi, Alison! Good to see you!

  172. Okay, guys, update. I put a post in PF. I just received ticket confirmation for the Tonight Show for Friday, Nov. 13. I put in a plea in my ticket request for the day Adam appears (you submit four different dates with the initial request).

    I HAVE NO WAY OF KNOWING if this will be the night he appears, but it is not outside the realm of possibility. It is a little early, but my guess is that the Tonight Show will be one of his first appearances (it wields the most power in L.A.).

    @Adamland ‘“ you out there? I’m holding one for you ‘“ at least until we can ascertain what day he will be appearing and anthro as well.

    Does anyone have the links to one of those talk show appearance tracking sites? The “Tonight Show” only gives episode listings about a week in advance. Thanks!

  173. We don’t know for sure that RedOne did six songs. He had said he HOPED to do six songs, but we never got confirmation that he reached his goal.

    Adam’s supposed to perform on GMA November 24th. He’ll probably make the press rounds in NY the week of release, and then hit up the L.A. shows the week after. Which is fine, having the promo spread out will keep his sales from dropping off too much in its second week.

    OMG. Oh this would be epic. OMG.

  175. We haven’t heard much about his work with Linda Perry, wonder if they didn’t hit it off?

  176. I think it’s typical to record a lot of songs so they have more to choose from. I love the idea that Adam will have so many quality songs that anything they pick will be amazing.

    As for him performing the single prior to the week of release of his album, typically, for the first single that’s how it works. They don’t usually promote the single separately because you want the single to sell the album FIRST and foremost. The fact that his first performance will be on a show as big as the AMAs is mindboogling.

    The pictures are so great! I’m with whoever said I love Adam natural and fresh and OTT glammed up. he’s goregous all the time but the middle of the road pics are sometimes less striking.

  177. Look, I wanna do music that’s very rooted in classic rock as far as the melodies, the guitars, and the vocal energy,’ ‘  Lambert says. ‘ But then I really wanna overlay a lot of dance-y, synth-y, futuristic stuff on top of it.

    I can’t wait to hear how this is gonna turn out. Whatever genre, doesn’t matter. I think he will excel. Of course I’d love it if he dabbled in a little groove metal – he’s got the voice. Not gonna happen, but still. Classic rock is fine by me too. His rock wail puts me in the mind of 70’s glam rocker Edgar Winter. Both got a lot of soul.

    Bonus for visiting MJ’s today, a most excellent vocab lesson:)

  178. We haven’t heard much about his work with Linda Perry, wonder if they didn’t hit it off?

    Adam did a tweet on the night he was in the studio with her.

  179. Allison, WB!!

    from YO_RANDYJACKSON – looks like he’s going to Oprah too?

    We’ll, Papertongues show was amazing, getting ready to go to chitown, to the mecca of talk shows Harpo studio’s!

  180. It’s interesting that people who understand the music industry finds it so remarkable that Adam crafted a mission statement for his album.

    I would have thought that all artists/album producers would have to do something like that for every album. There has to be some underlying theme or unifying musical approach or personal journey reflected or whatever. Otherwise, all you get is a collection of random songs.

    Which is obviously the explanation for the bizarre that is SuBo’s album track list. There’s eclectic. And then there’s all over the place like a dog’s breakfast!

  181. well, isn’t Alexander Trugman a sweetheart?

    @alexWTrugs: @egoldsmash just B thankful U dnt write abt @Adamlambert. His fans consist of sum fucking psychopaths.

  182. What bug has gotten into Alex’s shorts?

    – he could dream to have the amount of devoted fans that Adam has!!!

  183. Maybe he made a bet with someone… just waiting to get his point proven…

  184. Re: Alex Trugs. I’d hate to be on the receiving end of all the tweets he’s going to get now. What was he thinking?

    ETA: you might be right, saga. But, not sure why anyone would *want* to bring that onto themselves.

  185. ya think if he was going to do this PROPERLY he could spell Scum correctly, he spelled it sum

  186. saga,

    possibly, if so , I stand corrected– he is still an idiot, though

  187. His rock wail puts me in the mind of 70’s glam rocker Edgar Winter.

    The lead vocals in Edgar Winter’s White Trash were handled by a dude named Jerry LaCroix, who could flat wail. When I went looking for singers who can do what Lambert does, he was one of the names I came up with.

  188. Adam is at #8 on the Amazon charts. Susan Boyle is #1, probably helped by having her cover art “unveiled”.

    ETA: #2 in Rock, #8 in Pop.

  189. Does that look like a pint of ice cream in Adam’s bag in the pic with Brandy?

  190. Trugman is buddies with the worsters because they pay attention to him, and vice versa.

    Classic rock is fine by me too. His rock wail puts me in the mind of 70’s glam rocker Edgar Winter. Both got a lot of soul.

    Edgar Winter didn’t sing- you are either thinking about Rick Derringer or Dan Hartman, who traded lead vocals.
    ETA2: I stand corrected. Winter did sing too

    ETA:

    hwc- I never heard of that guy- was he pre or post Frankenstein?

  191. I love Classic rock.. but I am really interested in hearing the other stuff he has planed too.. I like adventure.. :-)

  192. It’s funny that Alex seemed like a nice guy during tryouts. I felt bad for him when he knocked down the microphone and bombed out on his song. His sense of humor since AI has been annoying. I hope he feels better if he is sick though.

  193. Well, damn! I just sent Alex a “get well” tweet. I didn’t know he’d said something so tracky. Oh well.

  194. I really, think Adam will be doing his single before the AMAs, especially on shows like Ellen. After Thankgiing, all those shows go on hiatus and there is no way RCA or Adam will wait until January for these appearances.

  195. Does that look like a pint of ice cream in Adam’s bag in the pic with Brandy?

    LMAO! I was just looking at that picture saying the same thing to myself.

  196. OT, but since the previous Dead Horse Thread is Dead, I just wanted to say that I, too, happened to catch that TMZ item whilst channel surfing and thot it was refreshing for them to snark on Adam’s relationship exactly like they would on any other couple. Apparently, the producer (or whatever?) Harvey Levin is gay so at least they aren’t gonna be slimey in that area other that to make fun of Adam the same way as anyone else. Too bad there has to be a reason for them to be uh, respectfully disrespectful, but like Rowe said, I still kinda sorta have to give tiny kudos to them. (And there was actually another clever remark on one of the websites with the kissing photos: they called Drake “Shia LaBoyfriend” which I gotta admit took some serious, multi-layered wordplay!)

  197. omg-gorgeous-eyes to die for:

    http://twitpic.com/lnjzf

    That’s how they look in person. I was mesmerized by his eyes first, then the rest of him. I wonder why more photos don’t show how blue they are.

  198. I really, think Adam will be doing his single before the AMAs, especially on shows like Ellen.

    He has stated clearly that his first “performance” of his debut single will be on the AMAs.

    Ellen does a huge thing for Christmas, giving away stuff. I think the week of Christmas and New Years is hiatus, but I remember new shows leading up to Christmas week. I remember the same things on lots of the other daytime talk shows.

  200. I putting my guess out there right now…
    I think the wording on a few press releases acutally meant Adam will be performing his debut single not debuting his single on the AMAs.

    So with that line of thinking whenever the single does come out – again Adam has always said mid-late October – he would have 3 plus weeks between the release and the AMAs which I can only imagine would include performing opportunities – including press rounds in New York and LA.
    I know in each subsequent interview Adam has only said he would perform the single he has never said the word ‘debut’ or ‘my first ever performance of’
    just putting this out there.

  201. So, Randy Jackson is going to be on Oprah tomorrow? Did someone say it is about MJ, and she is having special guests to talk about him? Thus, a conversation with Adam regarding MJ?

  202. I know in each subsequent interview Adam has only said he would perform the single he has never said the word ‘debut’ or ‘my first ever performance of’
    just putting this out there.

    If you watch the interview with Julie Moran and Jai Rodriguez he says it will be the “debut performance” of his single, but that you will be able to hear it before then.

  203. Remember, if he makes appearance before now and AMAs, he still has Time for Miracles to sing. I am sure is contracted to deliver some promotion for that song as well…

  204. Somebody said they remember Adam saying his album would be like the studio version of BTBW. I don’t remember him saying that. Does it sound familiar to anyone?

    Tomorrow is Oprah’s live show. If it’s about Michael, I can’t imagine they’d have time for Adam questions and audience participation. Could he be skyping in tomorrow for a few questions about Michael and an actual appearance at a later date?

  207. On Oprah’s website, it says Mike Tyson is on there talking about his daughter tomorrow.

    Lynee- I kind of remember that interview, but that was before he even went in the studio I think.

  208. If TII is going to be played in IMAX theatres, I’m definitely, definitely going to see it. Can you imagine Adam’s beautiful vocals in surround-sound? Can you imagine seeing him on the HUGE screen? Why do I keep wishing my days away?

  209. WHere did this talk about Randy Jackson being on Oprah and talking about MJ come from? I thought Randy tweeted that Adam was going on Oprah, not himself, I guess I misread it.

  210. Somebody said they remember Adam saying his album would be like the studio version of BTBW. I don’t remember him saying that. Does it sound familiar to anyone?

    I kind of remember that early on. Maybe his album has evolved since that early description.

  211. hwc- I never heard of that guy- was he pre or post Frankenstein?

    Frankenstein actually pre-dates all of Edgar Winter’s bands. It first appeared in the Johny Winter Band’s live sets as early as 1970 — Edgar played sax and keyboards in that band. A live version is included in the Deluxe Edition of Second Winter.

    Jerry LaCroix is the featured vocalist on the classic Edgar Winter White Trash live allbum Roadwork. which featured both Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer on guitar. Amazing, amazing, live set recorded at the Apollo in NYC and the Whiskey A Go Go in LA.

    http://www.amazon.com/Roadwork-Edgar-Winter-White-Trash/dp/B0000024YD

    That was released in 1972, before Frankenstein made an appearnce on a more pop oriented studio album later that year (without LaCroix).

  212. I am having a bad day…but I like his hair in these pics. I lurrrve it, actually.

    Trugs is a HUGE fave of VFTW (vile website). But I am still surprised he would tweet such a nasty thing (I don’t give a damn if he has swine flu–what’s he doing on the computer if he’s that bloody sick?!)

    Well, if we don’t get to hear Adam’s 1st single performed b/c the AMA’s, at least we can play it…at some point…when it’s released…sometime soon…after they decide what it’s actually going to be…

    And yeah, he has said about 100x that he really likes TFM (and that the video is “epic”) but that it sounds nothing like what is going on his album. So while I’m looking forward to TFM, and planning to download it the second I can on iTunes, I really am much more interested in his first single. YMMV.

  213. Tomorrow is Oprah’s live show. If it’s about Michael, I can’t imagine they’d have time for Adam questions and audience participation. Could he be skyping in tomorrow for a few questions about Michael and an actual appearance at a later date?

    I get the newsletters that say, “Friday on ‘Oprah'” in my email. I checked tomorrow’s and it ONLY says Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield meet again and goes into some details and gives related links. It says nothing about Randy or MJ or TII or Adam. That must be a different show.

    Oh, Frak, I’m going to HAVE to see TII on IMAX now.

    Mike Tyson was on Oprah on Monday this week. It already aired. Here’s a story about it: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/12/mike-tyson-on-oprah-dead-_n_317637.html

    Fridays are Oprah’s live shows with Gayle and Kelly Ripa’s husband. That listing must be wrong.

    ETA: The Mike Tyson/Evander Holyfield reunion is scheduled for Friday’s live show. So, who knows. See below post.

  215. I DVR Oprah every day, sometimes I actually watch it. :) I’ll check when I get home and see if there’s anything about tomorrow’s show featured in today’s show. I’ll post if I find anything out, if no one else beats me to it!

  218. from YO_RANDYJACKSON
    We’ll, Papertongues show was amazing, getting ready to go to chitown, to the mecca of talk shows Harpo studio’s!

    IDK, it sounds like he may be going to Chicago, possibly Harpo, but he doesn’t say he’s doing her show. I don’t know what the hell he would be doing on a TII show anyway. They may be taping something for next week? Or I think Harpo does other things besides just her show. Could be wrong.

  219. Somebody said they remember Adam saying his album would be like the studio version of BTBW. I don’t remember him saying that. Does it sound familiar to anyone?

    I remember him saying that he wanted to update classic rock with electronic sound, similar to how he did on BTBW. The impression with which I was left following his statement wasn’t that his CD would necessarily be like that specific song, but that he would be using contemporary stylings like he did on that song.

  220. Adam’s beautiful vocals in surround-sound?

    American Idol has been broadcast in Dolby Digital Surround sound for several years now. It’s the standard audio format for high definition TV. Alas, the Idol producers don’t do a particularly good job with the sound mix. Some of the award shows are incredible. Even better are many of the DVD concert videos in Dolby Digital Surround sound, where they’ve had the opportunity to go back and remix like a studio album. There is some stunning stuff out there.

    I’m new here but I think I just earned the right to SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    http://www.adamofficial.com/node/810949

    BestAI possibly they are taping this show for later broadcast?

  222. If O’Reilly can use pulchritudinous in a sentence, he’s more erudite than I had imagined.

    (Which would make his remarkable tendency to be wrong all the time even more notable).

    ‘“ Oprah is doing a show on Reality Shows so Randy would fit right in.

    Ah, well that makes sense. Boo that it’s going to be about reality shows! I know that was the original tease and when I submitted my questions, but it sounded like they had gone a different route by only talking about Adam and not other reality shows so much in the other question solicitation. Hopefully he won’t have to share billing with the Kardashians or something (yuck!)

    Well, I’m sure she’ll highlight Adam in a positive light and boo again that he won’t be singing apparently.

    So they’re doing the Friday live show with Tyson and Holyfield and then taping his show for another day. I hope those in the audience are allowed to give some scoop about when it’s going to air.

  228. So they’re doing the Friday live show with Tyson and Holyfield and then taping his show for another day. I hope those in the audience are allowed to give some scoop about when it’s going to air.

    Not that this has anything to do with Adam, but Kenny Ortega, friend and choreographer of MJ’s is also supposed to be on tomorrow. He also directed TII movie.

  229. Oh hey everyone that said hello/welcome back to me :)

    hope y’all been well. I keep meaning to post more.

  230. Not that this has anything to do with Adam, but Kenny Ortega, friend and choreographer of MJ’s is also supposed to be on tomorrow. He also directed TII movie.

    Hmmm, that “Reality Show” show does seem like it’s taking a TII turn …

  231. Halfie: American Idol has been broadcast in Dolby Digital Surround sound for several years now. It’s the standard audio format for high definition TV. Alas, the Idol producers don’t do a particularly good job with the sound mix.

    So, that’s why so many people who have gone to the live shows have said Adam sounds really incredible live. Weird, tho, people haven’t mentioned that about anyone else.

  232. Underneath the layers of makeup is a beautiful man. I love him in his natural state. Adam looks great in these pictures.

  233. HWC- Thanks for the Edgar Winter schoolin!

    Sounds like Oprah is going to tape the reality segment tomorrow and show it at a later date.

  234. I just got my weekly email from EW, and they’re going to have a story (with the photographs) about Adam. In fact, it was the top item in the email:

    Exclusive Glambert Adam Lambert talks about his upcoming album; plus: 6 exclusive pics of the ‘Idol’ fave in the studio!

  235. The lead vocals in Edgar Winter’s White Trash were handled by a dude named Jerry LaCroix, who could flat wail. When I went looking for singers who can do what Lambert does, he was one of the names I came up with.

    hwc, you know it guy, could LaCroix ever wail! Adam evokes for me memories of the rock wailin done by Edgar on Tobacco Road and his dual vocals with LaCroix on Save Our Planet. Edgar being a pioneer of synthesized rock is another parallel…

    I hope the funk descriptor espoused by Adam in the past is still a part of the equation too. I’m trying not to get too hyped but I think there’s a whole lot of potential for a terrific product and I can’t help but be excited!

  236. I apologize for following myself, but the edit option doesn’t seem to want to work for me. Here’s the rest of what the email said about the Adam article:

    LAMBERT:It could be. It was originally done for the soundtrack for the 2012 movie and it will be on there but it may wind up on my cd as well as an added track or bonus,it is still being decided.
    REPORTER:Brian May said is was great.
    LAMBERT:I know that is just awesome coming from him.

    QUESTION:Have you seen the movie 2012 yet?
    LAMBERT: No, I haven’t. I will be going to the premiere for it so that will probably be the first time I will actually see the whole movie

    .

  238. Studio!Adam is one of my favorite Adams. He just looks so natural and in his element. And based on that mission statement, I’m beginning to think that this album might be a lot more rock than I expected (I expected straight up Lady Gaga). But we’ll see…

    and alison— welcome back! :D It’s really nice to see you posting again. Your straightforwardness is always refreshing.

    Oh hey everyone that said hello/welcome back to me

    hope y’all been well. I keep meaning to post more.

    alison! Just got home from work, saw your posts and just had to say hi. So good to see you. Any Anoop news?

    And just so I stay OT, BB looks great all ‘posed’ up in da studio ‘as usual.’

  240. LAMBERT: No, I haven’t. I will be going to the premiere for it so that will probably be the first time I will actually see the whole movie

    Squeee!!

    Exclusive Glambert Adam Lambert talks about his upcoming album; plus: 6 exclusive pics of the ‘Idol’ fave in the studio!

    So, is that the article and photos running at the top of this thread?

  241. Mickey Borden- this thread is from that EW article- it’s on their website right now. I believe the TV Characters You Hate is on there now too.

    VAlilac- thanks for that info- I hope TFM is a bonus track on Adam’s TBD album!

  242. hey emo :mrgreen:

    No Noop news, the state fair is next week though. So tempting.. but I’m sure there will be videos of it.. which I’m sure all of y’all will watch :D

  243. I think the point I was trying to make (and more than once to my embarrassment) is that the Adam pictures and article will be in the actual EW Magazine, and not just online.

  244. Ooops- sorry- didn’t get what you meant. You know, I have subscribed to EW for so many years but I think it’s time to let my subscription lapse- everything is such old news by the time the magazine comes because I read it online.

  245. No Noop news, the state fair is next week though. So tempting.. but I’m sure there will be videos of it.. which I’m sure all of y’all will watch

    I will watch (you know I have a soft spot for Noop). :-)

  246. QUESTION:Have you seen the movie 2012 yet?
    LAMBERT: No, I haven’t. I will be going to the premiere for it so that will probably be the first time I will actually see the whole movie

    Woo hoo!! Red carpet, baby!!! Anyone have any idea when the Hollywood premiere is scheduled?? All I could find was that the movie opens on the 13th in theatres, but what about the red carpet thing??

    Q3, baby, do your thang!!!

  247. Does anybody know if Entertainment Tonight is showing Adam’s music video (which was supposed to happen last night, but didn’t…grrr)?

    ETA: Hi Alison! Nice to have you back! I didn’t delurk until after the tour, but your posts all summer were very entertaining.

  248. I will watch (you know I have a soft spot for Noop). :-)

    Yep and that’s why you’re my fave.

    Hey Janus! congrats on delurking.

    Q3, baby, do your thang!!!

    I would bet tuesday/wednesday a few days prior.
    Red Carpet, he’ll be in every mag and online photo site. YEAH!

  250. Just got this tweet:

    AINow Got emails from people who say Amazon told them TFM will world premiere tomorrow but won’t be avail for download until Tues. Can’t confirm.

    Supposedly they are trying to confirm and will tweet more

  251. yeah I wondered about that too .. I just read about it today and I’m sitting here in the UK like a saddo at 1:30 in the morning waiting to see if it happens …lol

  252. omfa thnx mama2dasha.sigh I’ll b gone when the WORLD EXPLODES!!!!

  253. yeah I wondered about that too .. I just read about it today and I’m sitting here in the UK like a saddo at 1:30 in the morning waiting to see if it happens ‘ ¦lol

    Yes, they’re implying it would happen at midnight tonight, but again saying can’t confirm. Another late night for me..can’t sleep anway due to all the exciting news lately!

  254. midnight??!!! I could probably sneak down but my dads here and he would kill me.fml.I’ll c it tomorrow..

  255. Adam Lambert’s ‘Time for Miracles’  To Debut Before Jackson’s ‘This Is It’ 
    http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdaily/index.php/2009/10/14/adam-lamberts-time-for-miracles-to-debut-before-jacksons-this-is-it/

    I just loved this comment:
    Anonymous | 10/14/2009, 1:43 pm EST

    People who read Adam Lambert posts:

    1%: WHO?
    1%: OMG HE IS THE BESTEST EVERRR!!1!
    1%: UGH HE SUCKS
    1%: YOU SUCK FOR SAYING HE SUCKS
    1%: NO *YOU* SUCK
    5%: I DO/DON’T LIKE HIS HAIR/MAKEUP/OUTFIT
    90%: WHATEVER JUST GIVE US SOME DAMN MUSIC ALREADY

  256. OK, don’t get too excited. Its hard to sort out these tweets but its all just rumor so far, so don’t stay up or sneak up…here is the last tweet:

    AINow RT @NessieCCullen @AINow a few hours?! Omfg – not saying midnight. just anytime tomorrow. and still we don’t even know if that’s true lol

    I am not sure who is saying what here..twitter is so confusing!

  257. Yes, they’re implying it would happen at midnight tonight, but again saying can’t confirm. Another late night for me..can’t sleep anway due to all the exciting news lately!

    ah right thanks … then I’ll stay up a bit longer … thank god for coffee and chocolate …. although you’re right the Adam adreneline over the past couple of days has totally ballsed up my sleep pattern ..lol

  258. Hmmm . . . can’t seem to figure out which of the threads is the one to be OT about the Oprah appearance. I put this in headlines, but it looks like there is (was) more Oprah talk on this one.

    I guess I’m a little late to chime in on the Oprah speculation but doesn’t it make sense that Adam’s SKYPE appearance on Oprah is a kind of test/audition for him (for her)? I’m sure she’s heard the buzz and/or her staff has certainly kept her in the loop about it ‘” particuarly the responses from their own website. So if (when!) his satellite appearance generates ratings and evokes a lot of response (from the audience and viewers) that’s her cue to feature him on a later show ‘” where he can sing and be interviewed ala Streisand, Michael Buble, et al.

  259. suebrody, in scheduling they even titled this episode of Flash Forward the Black Swan episode

  260. I e-mailed Oprah after A I season 8 was over and asked her to have Adam Lambert on her show. She did not listen to me then. Maybe she is listening now. I hope so.

  261. just FYI everyone:

    Just FYI, rumor is that entire TFM song is going to be released right after midnight and that Amazon will be posting an actual CD version that you can preorder/order tomorrow.

    There are severeal peeps who contacted Amazon and supposedly got this info.

    As Always, take this rumor with grain of salt, but my Amazon.com will be open ready to order the TFM cd is this actually comes to pass.

  262. News!!! 3 song titles in this article with descriptions!!! STRUT(written by ADam and Kara), Loaded Smile(written by Adam & Linda Perry) and What do You want from me(written by Pink & Max MArtin) YEAH!!!

    here is screen views of the print version of EW:

    http://twitpic.com/lojf6

  263. Who was skeptical that Adam would not be writing and getting writing credit? WRONG!!!!

  264. here is screen views of the print version of EW:

    a larger version of the screen views

    http://pics.livejournal.com/mayonegg/pic/0001xrt7

    What do You want from me written by Pink and Max Martin
    Strut written by Kara and Adam
    Loaded Smile written by Linda Perry and Adam

    I love the name ‘Loaded Smile’, but “it’s a bit dark.”

    ETA

    It’s seem Music Again (written by Justin Hawkins) is the other song recorded in Capitol Studio.

    I like this EW.

  265. PINK????? WHAAAAAAAA? Wonder if that’s an old one or if she wrote it for Adam?

    FYI- If you missed the Pink Behind The Music, they gave a really cool insight into how Linda Perry wrote with Pink. She made Pink sit down and tell her her life story,really pour her heart out about the crap she endured in her life, and she had to sing her story. It was really pretty cool.

    Gee, now I take back what I said earlier about cancelling my EW subscription, I guess you really do get more in the magazine article. It comes tomorrow for me.

    ETA: Pink and Max Martin wrote together for her I’m Not Dead album, which i think was her least successful album. I wonder if the Adam song is one of their throwaways.

  266. I am so happy for him that he will also get song writing royalties!

    suebrody, in scheduling they even titled this episode of Flash Forward the Black Swan episode

    4evrmom, it was me who posted about black swan on Flash Forward

  268. News!!! 3 song titles in this article with descriptions!!! STRUT(written by ADam and Kara), Loaded Smile(written by Adam & Linda Perry) and What do You want from me(written by Pink & Max MArtin) YEAH!!!

    here is screen views of the print version of EW:

    PINK??? I LOVE PINK!!!!!
    OMG
    I must not scream. Gotta calm down. Breathe in, breathe out. I wonder if she wrote the song for Adam specifically? Or if it’s an old one that she never used?? But still omg pink! *spaz*

  269. No wonder Adam was front row at Pink concert, huh?

    I thought he was in the press section. Close, but no front row.

  270. sorry, sidewalkstory, my error, I thought suebrody had posted the Black Swan info

  271. Isn’t Justin hawkins the lead singer from The Darkness?

    Yes. (Not that I knew it before, it’s on the EW article)

  272. Studio57, I loved the Pink Behind the Music and the drama between Pink and Linda Perry over Christina, primarily. Pink rocks!

  273. Thanks Becky- i just read the article. Now I am excited- it seems like he went a little bit away from the electro pop. I like the term glam metal better.

    Now can we just hear some damn music????

    4evermom- It was a great BTM. I had no clue that she plucked Linda Perry from obscurity. I thought Linda was pretty well established when she worked with Pink. It’s so sad they had a falling out.

  274. Loaded Smile: it’s a bit dark, with all the vocals in falsetto. It feels like you’re floating in space.

    dark, floating, space…Michelin Man?

  275. Studio57-It is sad they had a falling out-

    Oftentimes, I find that those with intensively creative minds are also very temperamental, sometimes it just goes with the territory, I guess

  276. No wonder Adam was front row at Pink concert, huh?

    I thought he was in the press section. Close, but no front row.

    Front row was GA, on the floor. You are correct, he was in the press section which was one seciton off the floor.

    Max Martin also wrote 4 of the songs on her “Funhouse” album. “I’m Not Dead” was a very sucessful album. The album between Mizunderstood” and “I’m Not Dead” is the one that bombed (can’t remember the title.) It’s the time when PINK says she was tired of everything and it should porbably have never been made. “I’m Not Dead” got her back on track.

  277. Sorry, everyone, I did not mean that Adam was literally in the front row, what I should have said is no wonder he was a prominently attending a Pink concert, he had recorded one of her songs…I should have been more clear in what I was trying to say…

  278. just FYI everyone:

    Just FYI, rumor is that entire TFM song is going to be released right after midnight and that Amazon will be posting an actual CD version that you can preorder/order tomorrow.

    Sorry if this has already been answered at some point, but what does being “released” actually mean? If this rumor is true, would we be able to hear the whole song on Amazon but wouldn’t be able to purchase until the 20th? I just saw on another website that it means we might be able to hear it on the radio tomorrow, but I don’t particularly want to leave hearing it to chance — I want to hear it ASAP!

  279. “What Do You Want From Me’ defintiely sounds like something P!NK would have written during her separation from Carey. It’s probably very woeful! I can just imagine Adam singing it right now and it makes me excited!

  280. pattyH- according to wiki ( and yes, i know they are not always reliable) Try This ( the one before I’m Not Dead) sold 3 million in the US as opposed to 1.3 for IND. It said it was her least successful US album. Glad to know MM did some of the songs on Funhouse though.

  281. Okay- What Ya Want From Me is a “leftover track” on Pinks Funhouse:

    http://www.pink-fanclub.com/funhouse-album.html

    From the website:
    The following tracks were confirmed for the original album’s track list. It is now presumed that they will appear as B-Side tracks on future singles.

    Tracks confirmed by ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers) site:

    “What Ya Want From Me?” (Pink, Max Martin, Shellback)

  282. Love the idea of a track co written by Pink .. the Justin Hawkins thing is unexpected but interesting …. love the idea of something T-Rex like .. but not sure he should be using the “Gary Glitter” word …. must admit I liked some of Gary Glitter and the Glitter Band’s records in the 70’s it was fun stuff but not sure how people in the US feel about Gary Glitter but his name isn’t very well received here in the UK these days due to his dubious lifestyle.

  283. Hello,

    Catching up on the threads. The EW article is interesting and exciting and makes me nervous. The storm is happening.

  284. I think the Casada song is a different one as Casada wrote it

    I think so too. Can’t imagine either Pink or Adam sings it. Just for a second my memory went back to all the speculations when LLWD’s name leaked out.

  285. It has to be. The article says that the song was written by Max Martin and Pink. Has nothing to do with Casada.

  286. Okay- What Ya Want From Me is a ‘leftover track’  on Pinks Funhouse:

    How the hell did you find that? Impressive sleuthing.

  287. Becky MD- I wish Adam would get the hint that he looks better without the makeup. Reminds me of a young Warren Beatty:
    http://warrenandjulieforever.bravehost.com/myPictures/beatty.jpg

    Me, too. I think he mentioned that on Idol they, whoever that was, were telling him that he looked too pale, so he said O.K. bring on the bronzer. I say pale is nice on him. Just his natural skin color is just fine. Oh well, makeup or no, he’s just so fine.

  288. What You want from Me? – Adam’s description

    “This whole things a little freaked out, but please have faith in me, because I won’t dissapoint you”…

    I don’t hear that description in that Cascada’s version… so I don’t think it’s the same song.. but who knows

  289. Okay- What Ya Want From Me is a ‘leftover track’  on Pinks Funhouse:

    Oops. I hope for Adam’s sake that Pink’s leftovers are better than the Script’s leftovers. Was this song ever released anywhere as a B side?

  290. How the hell did you find that? Impressive sleuthing.

    I’m getting better at googling, lol.

    Natasha- according to the link I posted above, it was set aside for a possible B side so i don’t think it was recorded yet. But there might be a Pink demo somewhere….

  291. So the Pink song must be the one cover he mentioned he’d be doing on the album . . .

  292. OK so I am over in the headline thread wondering why no one is commenting on the EW article! LOL!

    They have 28 songs recorded for this album — so they should just release a 2-disc set!

  293. karen- most of us American’s only know rock And Roll Part 2 from GG. That song will never go away.

    ah right .. yes that one has great lyrics doesn’t it (*insert sarcastic smilie*) …lol

    I was actually a big fan of Gary Glitter in his day even though I was very young .. used to “strut” around the living room to “Leader of the Gang” .. even saw him a couple of times in concert in the 90’s when he became a total parody of himself .. they were fun shows but it’s the whole paedophilia stuff that makes me very uncomfortable about anthing associated with him unfortunately.

    Obviously I’m not saying that any of this has any relation to Adam .. and like I say I liked Gary Glitter’s style of Glamrock for the fun side .. it’s just the other stuff that’s kind of made him a name you shouldn’t mention over here

  294. So the Pink song must be the one cover he mentioned he’d be doing on the album . . .

    Here we go again! LOL!
    If P!NK wrote it but never recorded it, then it’s not a cover. Right?

  295. I don’t think any of the three track in EW will be the first single — unless that Pink/Max Martin song is great!

  296. new tweet from greg wells

    greg_wells: File under “tease” but I can’t wait for people to hear Adam’s record. Starting to hear final mixes today and it’s exciting.

    we can’t wait EITHER!

  297. Natasha- according to the link I posted above, it was set aside for a possible B side so i don’t think it was recorded yet. But there might be a Pink demo somewhere’ ¦.

    As long as it wasn’t released I don’t think it’s that big a deal. “I Do Not Hook Up” was a Katy Perry song that didn’t make her album. I think songs get kicked around.

  298. Gah Gah Gah! I’m so not allowed to be playing in Adamland tonight! I have so much work to do, and now there is all this epicness happening! That EW article just pushes all the right buttons. What are you people doing to me? You are my downfall!

  299. @Adamland ‘“ you out there? I’m holding one for you ‘“ at least until we can ascertain what day he will be appearing and anthro as well.

    SusanM, I’m here, contact me at @lindsav on Twitter.

  300. Here are the writers of the other song mentioned. Obviously, not the
    P!NK/Martin collaboration.

    Cascada : What Do You Want From Me Lyrics
    Songwriters: Cornelissen, Tony; Peifer, Yann; Reuter, Manuel;

  301. Karen- lol- GG always gave me the heebie jeebies.

    Here we go again! LOL!
    If P!NK wrote it but never recorded it, then it’s not a cover. Right?

    That’s the way I look at it. the Script version of LLWD WAS a B side and recorded. From the looks of the website, and I do not know how dated it is, this Pink song was just set aside for a POSSIBLE B- side in the future.

  302. Q3: They have 28 songs recorded for this album ‘” so they should just release a 2-disc set!

    Dammit, this is what I want!!! How insatiably curious are we gonna be knowing that if, say, 14 songs make the CD, there are still another 14 recorded tracks out there we’ll still wanna hear!! AARRGGHH!! The torture!

  303. Wow, fascinating stuff going on tonight. The EW article is chock-full of great details.Makes it even harder to wait!
    And the amazon thing tonight. Not sure I understand yet how that all came about but fingers crossed anyway.
    Back to trying to catch up. It really is getting hard to keep up. I was distracted by RL and balloon boy.

  304. I don’t think any of the three track in EW will be the first single ‘” unless that Pink/Max Martin song is great!

    IA. It seems Adam’s PR team tend to distribute news even-handedly to several channel. I guess another media, maybe RL will get the scoop to reveal the first single.

  305. pattyH- according to wiki ( and yes, i know they are not always reliable) Try This ( the one before I’m Not Dead) sold 3 million in the US as opposed to 1.3 for IND. It said it was her least successful US album. Glad to know MM did some of the songs on Funhouse though.

    Thanks for that info, Studio57. I guess I was thinking, because P!NK hated it, it was less successful. It probably sold because more records were selling back then and the success of Mizunderstood might have carried it a little.
    Try This is the one I don’t have.

  306. I’m sad about the Oprah thing-I got an email asking for my questions, but no invite to a Friday taping. Da#@ you Oprah and these cruel loops you ask us to jump through!

  307. Oh, man the gregwells tweet! I can’t stand it anymore. I cannot imagine these people are just pumping themselves up. If this album isn’t all they say it is, they are going to look like damn fools.

  308. I have no room in my tease file for any more where Adam’s album’s concerned .. this is like pure torture …. October is officially the longest month in my calendar and I have feeling that November isn’t going to be any better …lol

  309. Gah. His album sounds amazing. I hope that it’s all he says it is and not just straight electropop.

  310. Well there are two Max Martin tracks — because Andreas Johnasson cp-wrote a song that Adam recorded.

  311. I don’t know about anyone else, but I am exhausted from information overload. It seems like every writer and producer, who has worked on this album, has chimed in to say how fantastic Adam and the album are. Expectations have grown to a epic level and now I expect this to be the greatest album made in the last fifty years. I don’t think I could read another tweet from someone working with Adam, bragging about a song that we haven’t yet heard. I simply want some new music, interviews and pretty pictures. Maybe a lot of pretty pictures, because we have earned, by being patient.

  312. bridgette12, let’s hope the Amazon rumor is true that we can hear TFM in its full length or Oprah’s rumor is true that we can see him in TV.

  313. Usually I’m very good about reading all the posts. But not tonight. I will comment on the photo of Adam though. Gorgeous!!! As always. He looks happy!

  314. bridgette12, I agree. I am also exhausted! Tonight, with the discussion here about all the songs and then Greg Wells tweet, it made me think. All these writers and producers are tweeting about how incredible Adam is, specifically his voice. But what if the songs are crap?!

  315. IT’S MIDNIGHT NOW.. ANYTHING FROM AMAZON?

    Nope! It still says “unavailable.”

  316. But what if the songs are crap?!

    The songs would have to be very crappy. Because when Adam opens his mouth and sings I get shivers. Not to worry. Even if he doesn’t have your style of music on his album, no doubt his voice will be gorgeous.

    P.S. Yes, I’m a traitor who purchased “Want” from itunes. A very sucky song, but IT’S ADAM. :)

  317. Even if he doesn’t have your style of music on his album, no doubt his voice will be gorgeous

    My tastes are very eclectic so I’m sure the style won’t matter to me. I just want good songs with Adam’s voice singing them! I also want it to get great reviews though, too.

  318. Just checked amazon. Nothing yet.

    I just want to hear the entire song. Somebody release it, please.

  319. Small concession, Bob is up at Amazon.

    ETA. When did 2012 get an album cover? I give in to RL for one day, it figures.

  320. I don’t think the album will be crappy. I have faith in Adam and respect some of the people who he’s worked with. I just expect a really good album after all of these months. The way all of these people were carrying on, it better be good. I am tired and you can imagine how draining it is for Adam. I can’t imagine he’s going to get any time off for quite awhile. Well anyway, hopefully we will get a new song this weekend.

  321. Almost 12:30 a.m. – where’s the bloody CD?

    Another trail that leads to nowhere?

    Drinking a great red from Israel. Good excuse now to drink even more.

  322. I also want it to get great reviews though, too.

    I’m hoping for that!!!! :)

  323. iluvai :P.S. Yes, I’m a traitor who purchased ‘Want’  from itunes. A very sucky song, but IT’S ADAM.

    You’re cute. Have a feeling there are a lot of us ‘traitors.’

    I’m glad I popped in to check things out before heading to bed. the more I hear about the album the more excited I get. Thanks for the EW article!

    (deleted) But that 30 sec. sounds great.

    As Billy Idol says: ‘In the midnight hour she cried MORE, MORE, MORE.
    pft, good night.

  324. Now, I know nothing about the music industry. Correct me if I am wrong, if a song was never released by the artist it was originally written for and is later recorded and released by another artist, it is not considered a cover. If the above is correct, I would pee my pants laughing at the so-called veteran music bloggers who either couldn’t get the fact straight or purposely twisted the fact to put down the ones they do not favor.

  325. Jimmy Fallon just mentioned Adam. He said that Adam is dressing as a Glampire for halloween, so actually he is not dressing up for halloween. Something like that. I loved the EW article. This is all really exciting!

  326. Okay now so much so much to absorb :

    1. Ice cream from 7-Eleven? : Now we know where that behind booty(See AMA pics) is from.

    2. 28 recorded tracks ? And they will only be releasing 14 ? Don’t they know that there is an interplanetary law requiring that all recorded songs of the Fierce One has to be released to its glittizens to avoid mass riots and all sorts of cyber mass action .
    Don’t they understand that if they issue a special TWO CD plus DVD , this will be gobbled up and devoured and Adamland will still not be satiated.

    3.Can someone ask the Hiro of Heroes to transport himself to November 24 and get us a copy of that Album . The waiting is taking a toll on my computer.

  327. Jimmy Fallon just mentioned Adam. He said that Adam is dressing as a Glampire for halloween, so actually he is not dressing up for halloween.

    OK, now I can go to bed laughing.

  328. Dang, at this point I WISH the Pink/Max song was a cover, so we could track it down and get it on youtube so I could hear SOMETHING!

  329. Goodnight, sidewalkstory! I just woke up. Adam’s good for insomnia.

    Jimmy Fallon just mentioned Adam. He said that Adam is dressing as a Glampire for halloween, so actually he is not dressing up for halloween.

    maddy, thanks for mentioning. I’d love to see Adam on Fallon. I think he’d be kind of a fanboy – he did the Adam/Clay feud skit, and when they flashed a pic of Adam at the AI finale, said, “That’s one handsome dude” or something. Not in jest.

    Would love to see Adam on ANY late night show doing a song + interview actually, since he did none of that before.

  330. hiya Beehiway:

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I love Adam. More More More!!!! :)

  331. I just check Amazon.com – the only Adam single available is “No Bounderies” $1.29. Sooooo, what else can I do but say “Night, night, everyone – I’m off to bed :)

  332. Nope, nothing on Amazon. Just another tease. Mean people, getting our hopes up for nothing. lol :)

  333. Well there are two Max Martin tracks ‘” because Andreas Johnasson cp-wrote a song that Adam recorded.

    Are you sure about this? Wasn’t it Andreas Carlsson?

  334. From someone on AO:

    I spoke to Amazon on the phone. They said TFM will be released to all media October 16. Amazon will not have it available for download until October 20 (they said they need to get some kind of rights to play the song.) This is all I know.

    Where do we listen? And I can’t at work!!!

  335. This is from a recent article:

    “A small snippet of “Time for Miracles” leaked late last week, but Lambert told us to expect the full song later this week. “I believe on the 18th [Saturday], ‘Time for Miracles’ will be released. … I’m really happy about it.”

    It looks as though we will need to wait just a little longer……. :(

  336. Happycat, I too have Adam-induced insomnia, or regular insomnia that I fill with Adam reading. Sorry everyone about Amazon being a fake out. I do remember that Fallon sketch and it was a very genuine reaction. They showed Clay’s picture, then they showed Adam’s (I think from Finale night) and he said, “That’s a good looking guy,” (or something similar) almost as an aside.

    Yep!

  337. Hi all. So if the song is going to be released today where would I hear it? I need to know what to listen to… or something. Radio? some website? help please. thanks

  338. Hi Susan M. – so we are hoping Adam appears on Tonight Show on Friday November 14?

    And the waiting continues for a leak of a song from sony… and any frakking song from RCA!!!

  339. Hi Adamland! It’s Friday the 13th (hopefully lucky) and the day 2012 is released.*fingers crossed* But it could be the start of Adam’s CD release media blitz. The more I think about it, the timing might be just right, especially if he will be performing TFM.

    I’m going back to sleep, but I’ll tweet you tomorow.

    Any more word on the veracity of this AO post? Here goes but is there some chance that Oprah got the deal for the debut of TfM today? Amazon DOES say original release date 10/16/09. Call me crazy. LOL

  341. Premiering on Oprah maybe? Then onsale on Sunday?
    It IS Oprah and would be a HUGE promotional push *crosses fingers*
    Oh and I have a feeling that when he goes on all those shows around November 20th they’ll play his single and he’ll mention something about first performing it on the AMA’s. OR he’ll perform his single on a lot of those shows but then do a medley of songs from his album at the AMA’s.

  342. DAMMIT ALL TO HELL. I FORGOT TO SET MY DVR FOR OPRAH!!! :(

    (I knew this would happen. I *knew* it.) I still do not think TFM comes out today, but I hope so!

    BTW, I’m back. I had such a terrible day yesterday–you may send sympathy shout outs (HINT HINT)–but I missed you all. Those pics of Adam should be up on headlines or an ADAM THREAD soon, but God, he looks HOT. Emo!Adam will always be my favorite. Go away, Elvis!Adam. ;)

    But in the good news department, I get EW Magazine, so I will get the two-page spread. Yippie!!!

    I wanna hear TFM today. :(

    DAMMIT ALL TO HELL. I FORGOT TO SET MY DVR FOR OPRAH!!!

    Sue, I’m pretty sure there’s no need.

    The consensus seems to be that Oprah does TWO shows on Friday. A live one first, and taped one second. Mike Tyson and Evander, and also stuff on the MJ movie is slated for the live one. A reality show theme is slated for the taped one, which makes it 99% likely that Adam will be on that one, and it’ll probably be aired sometime in the next week.

  344. Oh, okay. Thanks. :) *breathing sigh of relief* That makes total sense with the reality show theme. I guess I haven’t paid enough attention here, sorry. I taped the wrong morning show for GMA, so I want to make sure I don’t screw up again. I will set the DVR tonight for all Oprah shows next week, just to be on the safe side.

    The folks on another thread, no names mentioned, don’t seem to like me very much, so I’m gonna stick w/ you guys. :)

    Man, I wanna hear TFM…!!! I wanna hear his new single even more, but I want TFM. I bought Want, too–desperate for new music (I did download Bowie Medley and Starlight, but can’t figure out how to get them on my iPod). Not that I’m the only one. ;)

    ETA: If Adam said, and he did, more than once, that he is not singing TFM on the AMAs, I don’t know why ppl keep saying he is. BTW, I want to host an AMA party, so if anyone in the Boston area wants to come to Brookline, let me know. (No car, can’t travel.)

  345. If I still lived in Cleveland Circle I’d be hopping on the T in a heartbeat for Brookline. I miss my Boston days.

  346. Oh, halfie, bummer. I used to live right in Cleveland Circle, but moved to a better part of Brookline a few year ago. Too bad. Love it here. Have lived here my whole life, except for a brief foray to Western MA for college and after-college work. I hate the weather (snow showers today!), but otherwise I would not leave the area.

    Now we are on page 2. Need a new Adam thread. :)

  347. Suebrody Whatever you are going through–my deepest sympathies. Take care of yourself, dear. Women are so often the first to forget about themselves while they are busy worrying about everyone else. It’s good to have someone like Adam to take our minds off the stresses in life, eh? I don’t entirely agree with you about Elvis-Adam, though. I love emo and elvis, oh and natural hair. As long as his hair stays dark, it’s all good!

    Come on Amazon, stop teasing us. Where is the single for Time for Miracles? The 2 tiny clips aren’t doing it for me any more!

  348. SueBro!!! Please take care of yourself and I wish I lived close enough to join you for an AMA party! Woot!

    Hmmm, I deleted myself for lack of clarity and free associating.

    IS THAT AMAZON EMAIL EVEN REAL? W.T.F.

    I need TfM … and I need it NOW.

    Loved the EW article, pix and song reveals!
    Has anyone tried this tea?
    http://www.tealand.com/ThroatCoat.asp

    Yes. My family swears by it during cold/flu season. Slippery Elm is the main ingredient. It’s amazing stuff. I can see why Adam uses it to soothe his throat!

    suebrody – hang in there honey. sending hugs your way

  350. Don’t they know that its impolite to make people wait .
    Where’s the song?
    Since they made us wait . . . they’d better make TforM full song release so grand that heads of state will send congratulatory letters to Obama for it.
    Please it’s really Time for Miracles.

  351. Right there with everyone frustrated about crazy rumors about Time for Miracles. I mean, why can’t they just release the freakin’ song? Haven’t they teased us enough? I’m ready for the climax now, please.

  352. Tweet from Cantiello:

    jambajim Someone I know got a sneak peek of a certain photo spread that will be in Elle Magazine soon. And it is spectacular!!! #JimsATease

    Why am I getting the feeling that everyone is intent on tormenting Adam fans?

    And, suebrody, hi there! Sending a *hug* your way :)

  353. “Why am I getting the feeling that everyone is intent on tormenting Adam fans?”

    That is what I am feeling, that all of these people are conspiring to drive all of us completely bunkers. Why don’t they just release the song today, then all of Adam’s fans will have a chance this weekend to listen to it.

  354. jambajim Someone I know got a sneak peek of a certain photo spread that will be in Elle Magazine soon. And it is spectacular!!! #JimsATease

    Why am I getting the feeling that everyone is intent on tormenting Adam fans?

    It’s tweet from Cantiello, so it’s more likely reference to Kris’ photo.

    ETA, kinda confirm it’s Kris.

    Rumor has that Kris was wearing wings in Elle shoot.
