Adam Lambert Interviewed by Two Swedish Chicks

Adam Lambert chats with Bella and Tyra in Sweden, as he sips some coffee…  He sings a snippet of “Whataya Want From Me” acapella and chooses a fav europop tune, after the chicks play him a couple of snips.

Adam’s international tour is winding up. He’ll be in Canada next week for some Casino dates on April 8th at the Red Robinson Theater and at the River Rock Casino Resort on April 9th, both in British Columbia.

  1. YAY!! I was just on the look out for some Adam news, and here it is. Thanks MJ for posting this.
    His acapella WWFM snipet is gorgeous!

  2. I swear i have missed so many of his interviews because I just can’t keep up with them all anymore.

  3. Wow – acapella on the spot – how brave and he killed it – I hope those girls appreciated that!

  4. Another nice interview, i think these two girls are just a bit smitten with Mr. Lambert. Anyone know if he has landed back in L.A. yet?

    I’m going to miss him being on tour around the world. Idol appearance should be coming up soon!!!

  5. #WelcomeHomeAdam is now up to #3. Hopefully it will be #1 when he fianlly gets into LAX.

  6. I was bummed out this afternoon, and now I’m all cheered up! Thanks for the post!

  7. Monte tweeted about 4 hours ago that they had landed at LAX. So they’re back! Welcome home, Adam.

    And the on-the-spot acapella performance of WWFM? OMG, swoon is right! That was lovely.

  8. Really fun interview..wow he never sings for interviews..those girls are pretty hot though..sexy is sexy! :)

  9. Yes, Adam is home, Monte tweeted a little while ago and it was posted on the old thread (forgot who, sorry). I’ll bet he will be glad to see his parents and his friends, oh and ah Tommy.

  10. Lucky girls getting to hear Adam sing like that! And lucky us that it is on video. His voice is so beautiful!

  11. SonyMusicGlobal
    We hope everyone tagging #welcomehomeadam knows that the countries that had him for a while took good care of ur guy.

    aww! I love the support

  12. I love this world promotion tour. Especially when it was near the end, interviews were more fun and Adam was more relax.

  13. And yet again another…better to best rendition of WWFM…even if it’s only a couple of lines. I really like this interview. The girls are beautiful. Either one would be a perfect match for Adam…It’s still April fool’s day isn’t it?

  14. Yeah, Monte tweeted he was stuck in customs with his guitars and I was thinking, guitars? What about Adam’s codpiece?

  15. I don’t think Monte and Adam are on the same flight. I read earlier Adam had a layover in Heathrow and I think Monte had one in Frankfurt. Could be wrong.

    loved the SonyMusicGlobal tweet. They are really good to Adam. All the countries have been, with the exception of his own ;(

    ETA: I should probably narrow that down to a few people in the media, message board posters and some DJ’s and PD’s.

  16. Does it look like Adam and the girls are in a church? Probably a hotel lobby, but those stain glass windows are throwing me off.

    Someday Adam will have an auction at Sotheby’s. Codpiece…going once, going twice…SOLD to ……(fill in the blank).

    Studio57 you are so correct.

  17. I wonder why Monte and Adam aren’t on the same flight. Well at the very least, maybe Adam was able to get some sleep on the plane.

  18. Oh, I didn’t know that Monte and Adam weren’t on the same flight. I just assumed they were. Monte tweets a lot more than Adam does, so I was taking his word for it. If they’re on different flights then I don’t know whether Adam is back in LA yet or not.

    I too found that SonyMusicGlobal tweet very heartwarming.

  19. OMG, I just realized something. Adam said he was going to tour for 2 and 1/2 months. Is this going to be another summer of underwater cellcasts? Is this going to be my life again? How am I going to survive this? Oh well, I am sure it will be worth it.

  20. Wow can’t wait for the tour dates to be announced!! I’m beginning to realize that as long as Adam has a career (and we know how he wants longevity) I will have a hard time getting my life back. I seriously need a twelve step program.

  21. Oh, sorry I loved that interview, how can he just sing like that and add stuff in whenever he feels like it. I know, the kids this year all have to sing a few bars of their song like that, for a test. Think any of them can do it? Would make for good TV.

  22. I know, the kids this year all have to sing a few bars of their song like that, for a test. Think any of them can do it? Would make for good TV.

    I think Crystal Bowersox could do it (somewhat!), the rest I doubt it. NONE of them can come near Adam.

  23. Also loved the interview and I think Adam will continue to prove the nay-sayers wrong… he has a serious innate musical sensibility. He is not just a good vocalist with an amazing range…he has an ear for music and knows how to change things up to stay fresh and sound cool. I think he’ll be making music for as long as he wants to do it. Of course I’m preach’n to the choir here. I loved how intent he looks when he’s listening to the three songs they played.

  24. Cute interview. The impromptu acapella performance was great! Those girls were so cute … obviously very taken with him! Who could blame them. He’s too adorable!

  25. OMG — Precious interview!
    It just goes to show that Adam needs absolutely no backup tracks or instrumentation. All he needs is his voice! Wow!!! :)

  26. Adam said he was going to tour for 2 and 1/2 months. Is this going to be another summer of underwater cellcasts? Is this going to be my life again?

    LOL — I was thinking the exact same thing!!
    Hey, we will survive…… ;)

  27. Adam’s dad and brother, lol

    negativeneil

    Haha I knew your genes were crap. RT @milestougeaux Adam was adopted, left on our doorstep by a groups of gypsies, tramps and thieves.

  28. One of the many things I love about Adam’s interviews on this global tour is that he is so courteous about being understood when he speaks with someone whose native language is not English, without really seeming to do so. Many people in the same position either speak perceptibly more slowly, more loudly, or “dumb down” the vocabulary. Listen to this interview and then compare it to one with an American dj, and notice the accommodation. He visibly listens more carefully, and speaks just a tad more formally with people who learned English out of a textbook. Just another example of Adam’s innate people skills and sensitivity to his surroundings.

  29. I hadn’t seen that UK interview, thank you! Looks like there are UK tv appearances to look forward to! Jonathan Ross I hope

  30. kradamour….Exactly what I was thinking but didn’t know how to express it like you..I noticed this in Singapore and Japan too. Thank you!

  31. I loved this interview with the Girl DJs. Adam was sweet to them, and they were sweet to him! IMO Adam is a walking example of someone with a high degree of social intelligence. I checked the Itunes pop singles chart to see how Adam was doing with WWFM/FYE: Notice he is charting top ten in Sweden.

    Link for the itunes pop singles chart for downloads:
    http://www.apple.com/euro/itunes/charts/top10popsongs.html

    One or both of Adam’s songs are in the top ten list of Itunes Pop charts downloads in SEVEN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES! Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands. Seeing is believing!

  32. Cookiebr7: Unbelievable! I got all emotional seeing this. This is wonderful!

  33. Thanks, MJ, I hadn’t see this one yet. Adam is such a wonderful singer. I can’t wait to see him next week.

  34. ccokiebr7- Thanks for that link, and GO FINLAND, lol. What happened with Japan? I thought he was number one there? Doesn’t matter- good to see the love.

  35. I just finally finished listening to that 2-hour Adam intensive Joy Theme Party show on Melbourne radio. Wow– that was really something. Definitely worth listening to.

    Here’s the link to the recording if you missed it:
    http://littleglitterlittleglam.blogspot.com/2010/03/two-hours-of-adam-lambert-radio-from.html

    The DJ wrote a blog post afterwards:
    http://joythemeparty.blogspot.com/

    The DJ is obviously a huge Adam fan, and it was so lovely to hear 2 hours of Adam singing and her high praise of Adam broadcast on the radio.

    After she played acoustic WLL from the FS concert, this is what the DJ said:
    “After I heard acoustic Whole Lotta Love, I went over the edge and said Adam will be one of the greatest artists of all time. I stand by that… It’s all about the voice. It’s one of the most extraordinary voices in rock music ever. He is a worthy successor to Freddie Mercury. It’s not overstating it to say that anymore in my opinion.”

    How wonderful to hear a DJ actually say that over the radio, and I couldn’t agree with her more.

  36. haha that video was to funny…sorry I couldn’t help myself I have been trending on twitter for the last 5hrs i got bored and had to post that

  37. neil and dad again

    milestougeaux
    @negativeneil yes son…. your mongrel pedigree will haunt you to the end. enjoy!

    What a funny family

  38. Just got home from picking up my daughter at college. So I’m late to the party. The girls seemed smitten! :-)

    sorry I couldn’t help myself I have been trending on twitter for the last 5hrs

    Really, I hadn’t noticed ;-)

  39. haha lorismile i felt bad for my cousin haha she is the only one on my twitter that isn’t an adam follower but I got her to trend once :)

  40. adamlambert Just landed in LA LA LAND. Good to be home.

    Adam finally landed

  41. sorry I couldn’t help myself I have been trending on twitter for the last 5hrs

    Did he say that somewhere?

  42. lazyc0w
    Lorismile was picking on me, we are following each other on twitter I have been trending #WelcomeHomeAdam all afternoon, so she was getting those all afternoon as well, that was me she was quoting

    hehe must watch video you guys have to see this

    OK SMEGGS, you really “GOT” me. I was going to have a small ADAM nightcap before bed bed and what better that the new IMPROVED Down the Rabbit Hole from F.S.

    Instead, since I was one of the “Mother Trucker” that was there, I will just have to toddle off to bed and dream of the original presentation.

  44. As soon as she posts her real improved version I will post it here as well

  45. P.S. smeggs – I am mostly a lurker but I always enjoy your posts :)

  46. I’m glad to see that Adam is back home. He tweeted about an hour ago that he is at home and ready to sleep off his jetlag. What a long travel day for him after a very long trip. I’m guessing he’s going to go into private seclusion from the public for the next couple of days, rest up, and see friends and family. I hope so, at least, for his sake. Because soon he’ll be into intensive rehearsals to be ready for Vancouver in a week, and he probably needs to re-charge his batteries.

    Listen to me– I sound like his mom! Adam being worn out is bringing out my maternal instincts I guess.

    haha I know right, my first thought was I hope he gets a few days off to hybernate or something

    is there still hope that there will be some vid of Adam in Hair?

    hahaha and what particular part were you asking about lol :)

  49. LOL! Now you’re talkin’ BeckyMD! I think that would just put the Adam fan universe right over the edge.

  50. I think that if there was video it would have showed up by now, sorry to burst your bubbles

  51. Unfortunately, I think you’re right, smeggs.

    Here is a sneak peak at the HOT magazine (out of Singapore I think) interview with Adam. It’s interesting, especially when he waxes philosophical about why he has so many female fans.

    http://www.hotxpress.com/celebnews.aspx?pk=5B49EF1000672E4EE1B169EE741816E8B4D020A2473E53C06A77D6703C6E3111

    And here are some high quality photographs of Adam in Stockholm. Click on “Scen/Mingel” in the left hand list on the left and you’ll see Adam come up in a list.

  52. Just saw this video of another (I think) Swedish interview. Made me laugh more than any other! The guy asks Adam what he would include in his concert if he had absolutely no budget limitations!! Adam is so funny! He thinks of so many creative things, some of which are individual massage chairs for each audience member, individual bars for him, the band members and a bar for each audience member too! AND the whole concert would take place on a spaceship that would blast off and look down on earth!!! GLAMTASTICAL!!!

    http://www.voice.fi/index.php?option=com_sbsfile&tmpl=audiovideo&cid=6404

  53. saspurs21fan… Thanks for posting that new interview. That was fun. I loved Adam’s vision of the ultimate show! I wanna be there!

  54. I think those videos of Hair are with people’s cruise ship vacation videos. Nobody can recognize him enough to find him in the old footage. ;)

    Besides, the role he played wasn’t one of the hippies, so unless he was just an extra in that scene, he probably wouldn’t have been front and center enough to show in a video of it.

    Have some My Conviction anyway..

  55. He landed later than I thought he would, I wonder if he was still treding. Probably not, but I hope people tell him about it.

    He was still trending when he tweeted that he landed. #6 or something like that…and after he tweeted he jumped up to #4 for a while. First time I’ve participated in trying to trend something. It was no easy task! Trending is serious business….I’m pretty sure I have carpal tunnel from the experience!! LOL :)

  57. Aww, great! I’m happy to hear he was still trending when he tweeted. Sweet.

  58. @MeganY94 just announced – Orianthi and Adam Lambert are coming to the Shooting Star Casino June 11th!! Details at y94.com, can’t wait!

    Where is this?

    Where is this?

    Looks like it’s in MN….I sure hope this means Orianthi will be joining him all summer. I’m getting REALLY excited!!!

  60. 129aquarius….are you up yet??? We need to mapquest Shooting Star Casino in MN!!!! Have wheels…will travel!!

    Update: It’s 14 hours :( oh, well.

  61. I’m excited!! More concert news!! Now if only Foxwoods would tweet somethinng! The casino is in MN.

    I love how we are always getting some kind of news on Adam. Never a dull moment.

  62. Looks like it’s in MN….I sure hope this means Orianthi will be joining him all summer. I’m getting REALLY excited!!!

    Me too!! This is a great combination. I would be happy to hear Orianthi when I go to one of Adam’s concerts. And I am going to see him live at least once – no matter how much it costs!! Is Orianthi on the same label as Adam?

  63. Is Orianthi on the same label as Adam?

    I haven’t checked it myself, but others are saying she’s with 19E. You’ve definately got the right attitude….what ever it costs!!!! :)

  64. I can’t get out of my head how cool it would be to see her and Tommy together on a number…they’re both so cute. I love Monte, but I would also love to see Oriathi, Tommy and Adam playing around with each other for a song. Sorry, purely shallow, but it’s my fantasy. :)

  65. tls62, I like the way you think. That’s a very pretty picture.

    I hope that Kiss show gets radio adds and spins for Kris and Adam’s next singles. Very smart.

  66. Looks like orianthi will be joining Adam for whole tour. Makes a lot of sense for both of them. Looking forward to it. Now just announce some NYC area dates (but don’t put tix on sale til Monday)

  67. Good Morning all, I don’t know what is more exciting for me right now..the anticipation for Adam’s tour schedule and being able to see him perform again or thinking about our naked BB all curled up in his bed….oh my…life is good either way!

  68. I totally have to get out of here, major Easter shopping to do this morning, but envision this: Low lighting…spot light on Adam who starts singing Sleepwalker. He gradually starts seductively prancing around Orianthi and Tommy…crowd goes crazy as he leans his back into Orianthi (or Tommy) and sings “You’re everything that I waaaaant…but YOU don’t want me!” Lights go brighter now and start bouncing around. As the chorus kicks it up, Tommy and Orianthi move toward each other…throwing their blonde heads around in unison as Adam wails “I’m a SLEEPWALKER, WALKER, WALKER”. Both Adam and Tommy circle around Orianthi as she totally rocks out the guitar solo. As the last chorus starts, they all move back to their starting spots on the stage…lighting goes back down to Adam as he wraps it up while doing his seductive sway dancing to “I can’t turn this around…I keep running into waaalls that I caaaan’t break down.”

    Yes…totally shallow, I know. :)

  69. or thinking about our naked BB all curled up in his bed

    Okay…on THAT note, I really have to get out of here. You just made Easter shopping a little more enjoyable with that thought in my head today!! :)

  70. Supposedly the remix EP will be available to purchase on Adam’s Official website on April 9th and then iTunes on April 14th.

  71. naked BB all curled up in his bed….oh my…life is good either way!

    Well that’s a nice vision!

    I don’t see the EP selling alot except to his fan base. It’s just remixes really – minus Voodoo.

    Sorry, I can’t picture Adam and Orianthi doing back to backs on his tour. She just doesn’t seem the type from what I’ve seen. I will say that she will kill the solo on Sleepwalker but I’ll miss Monti. He’s like the proud papa on stage.

    Can I also just say how happy I am he’s not touring with Ke$ha. I don’t know if I could sit through her live singing for a whole set.

  72. Here’s my morning catch up :)

    Other than being on the same label.. how does this make sense? No sarcasm intended.. I just don’t see this as a great match. My husband has her album and her sound and vibe is so different than Adam’s. Financially it might make sense, but other than that??

    Financial, definitely. It’s cheaper to combine them than to book venues individually, they share costs. I’m not sure about Orianthi’s fan base, but I’m assuming she’ll bring more men than Adam would, so in that regards it could be beneficial for him. She’s probably got cool fans that might not like Adam’s album recorded but might like him live.

    This is a big question mark for me. We’ll have to see if these are just a few dates or a longer tour. Kesha is a better match if you ask me & they are on the same label. I could just see Adam on stage in all his flamboyant glory (said with love) to a crowd of Orianthi fans. IDK – need to find out more about Orianthi fans. Well at least if they tour together, I’ll get my husband to happily attend with me. lol

  77. Just think if Kesha does open up for him anyone that coma just to see kesha and stays for Adam, will really see how great a singer/performer he is hahaha

  78. My husband is quite happy to be seing Orianthi. And he gets a baseball game. Total win/win concert for him. If Orianthi’s fans were so inclined to look up Adam, they might be damn impressed with Monte and LP too. Tommy’s building quite the fanbase but isn’t as well known for his musicality, but he seems to play a ton of instruments. The band kicks ass live, so hopefully they’ll be impressed. But still with under 100k album sales in the US, I’m not quite sure who her fanbase is yet.

    And if Tommy’s as straight as Adam says, he and Orianthi would make a damn pretty couple. :)

  79. Hi, people, well it has taken me most of last night and this a.m. to get caught up (because I MUST click on each and every link). Wow, so much happening, so excited for Adam. Plus, reflecting deeply on the AMAs, am I the only one that thinks that there has been a sort of long-term impact/turnaround? All of a sudden, Ricky Martin comes out, Anna Paquin announces she’s bi. Not that Adam calculated anything like that, I just think he inadvertently pushed the envelope so far on mainstream TV that it actually stretched (even though it was sort of painful at the time). Anyway, people, don’t forget to vote for him on Time’s poll of 100 2010! Also, I am so proud of myself, I have been looking for this little snippet of the Melbourne interview and I found it! Just love this girl, and his facial expressions are just so intriguing and sexy in this viceo. Remember her, the one who gave him the tights?
    http://www.novafm.com.au/Video_Adam-Lambert-Rapid-fire-questions_100565

  80. also, the date of the MN concert is right when Monte’s twins are due. Maybe she’ll fill in.

  81. But still with under 100k album sales in the US, I’m not quite sure who her fanbase is yet.

    Wow seriously? Where did you get your #s. I’m always looking for sales #s, but I think I’m looking in the wrong place.

  82. Wow, those are not very good numbers for Orianthi. Her song is played on the radio all the time though. Maybe that’s why they are billing her as the special guest appearance. Adam may only have one hit song but he has sold a ton more albums than her. (not meant as an insult or an Adam is better….just an observation)

    It looks like the MN gig has about 2,000 seats?? That be much better than seeing him in the 10K+ areana I saw him in last summer.
    (although I am holding out hope for attending the G-A-Y event while I’m in London that week….fingers crossed….hopefully I can give you guys a first person review)

  83. Yay!!! I hope he comes to Northern California!

    IMO, Orianthi would be a great opening act for Adam. She is a very talented musician…if you saw her in the Micheal Jackson “This Is It” documentary you would know how awesome she is. I think both her and Monte on guitar during Sleepwalker would be epic! That being said, I’m just meh on her singing (although she is a better live singer than kesha).

    She would also bring in a younger crowd. My 11 and 14 old year girls weren’t interested in going with me to see Adam in concert, but once they find out Orianthi will be openning for him, I’m sure they’ll change their minds.

  84. Thanks for posting the Hot magazine article/interview from Singapore, smeggs. I really liked that interview. They asked good thoughtful questions, and Adam was thoughtful in his responses. I think it’s really interesting to learn how he perceives his impact on people, and how he’s still trying to comprehend people’s passion for him. I think he is starting to grock it, though — this is apparent in his rather philosophical (and accurate, IMO) answer to the question about why he has so many female fans and what he thinks he represents.

    I also really liked that fan chat that smeggs posted with the fans in Stockholm. Although it’s difficult to hear in parts, I really like it when he stands his ground about everybody having opinions about his choices and telling him what he should and shouldn’t do (like about the tattoo he wants; for the record, I’m not a fan of big tattoos, but I respect that it’s Adam’s choice for his own body). He talks about making his own choices about what he wants to do and says, with great sincerity and kindness, “I’ve gotten to where I am, for you guys, because I’ve listened to my heart. So I’m going to keep listening to my heart, for you.” Good choice, Adam. Rock on!

  85. sr4mjc ahhh ok they’ve listed guest performers on Idol Chatter. I sometimes notice that. Thanks for the link.. I was also wondering what Ke$ha was doing #s wise.

  86. I think Orianthi is a perfect opener for Adam. She has a current hit single, she has respect and name recognition in the business, she is also big around the world being she is from Australia and the MJ connection, which could translate into a “world tour” for both of them. They are both also probably the top new virtuoso’s at there instrument out there right now.
    Plus she played on Sleepwalker, which in itself is a good enough reason for me!
    This is not a negative towards Adam, but if you paired up Adam and Kesha on a show, you may see Adam opening for Kesha..she has the bigger sales numbers(TikTok at over 6million worldwide) and her album animal just passed 550K in the USA and she is still selling around 25K a week, so she will be passing Adam in a week or two. I used to think this would be a great pairing, but the more I see Kesha perform, the more I am not impressed, and think it would end up not being a compliment to Adams abilities. :)

  87. I have seen Ke$ha on several shows and she doesn’t sound good live which is a disappointment b/c I actually like Tik Tok & Blah Blah Blah on the radio but listening to it live not so much.

    I am hoping to see Orianthi she has mad skills & hopefully her live set is more rock–I am excited about Adam tour dates hoping to hear some dates in the Atlanta area or NY on the weekend….Here’s hoping to get the full concert schedule soon :-)

  88. My only issue with Orianthi opening for Adam is that they are both new artists. I really don’t want to fund Kesha so I knda hope that tour doesn’t happen (lol she is ok just don’t want to see her in concert), I would probably never go to a Xtina or Gaga concert unless Adam was opening for them. But at least I would know I would enjoy the show, can’t say I would with Ke$ha, but then again if Adam did open for Ke$ha maybe that would bring in the $$$$…. ;)

  89. if Adam did open for Ke$ha

    for this i have this vision, where after Adam is done all the Adam fans leave and the venue is only half full or almost empty.. cuz I wouldn’t stick around for Ke$ha, but I certainly would go see Adam.

  90. Kanadie,

    It’s like you read my mind…I completely agree with you. IMO, even though they are both new, they are two of the most talented artists out there today…which will make for one amazing concert!!!

    As I said before, I also think it will bring in a younger fan base. Adam has stated that he wants to continue to make music that is current and he wants longevity in his career. Of course, IMO, from a purely business point of view, I think getting the under 20 crowd more interested in his music is an important component to reaching that goal. My 14 year old was spending about $30-$40 on itunes a month, that’s more than I spent in a year!

  91. Kanadie –

    “They are both also probably the top new virtuoso’s at there instrument out there right now.”

    This is exactly how I feel. Orianthi is without a doubt a very highly-trained, talented musician. When I saw her in MJ’s “This Is It”, she was one of those people who commanded your attention, even when MJ was on stage! I feel the very same about Adam, although based on Orianthi’s AI performance, I think Adam is probably a stronger live, solo performer. But I am thrilled at the idea of them touring together – I really think their styles and levels of skill in their respective crafts are very compatible.

    I am sooooo glad he isn’t touring with Ke$ha. Although she may be more talented than I give her credit for, and her “party girl” persona may be something her PR team came up with, I don’t think she deserves the same level of respect for her art as Adam and Orianthi do. I sure hope Adam/Orianthi come to Texas!!!!

  92. The tween market, unfortunately, is very important. I’m not sure about Orianthi bringing a younger audience….the casino date is 18 and over. My daughter’s 11 yr old friend told me Adam is in alot of the tween magazines she gets. That’s gotta help.

    I’m really interested to see how well he sells. His fan base isn’t going to be enough, I don’t think, to get sell-outs at all these venues.

    ohhhh…Adam updated his twitter bio (I think)
    “Prepping for North American Summer Tour! ”
    Note he says North American and not USA.
    :-)

  93. Lorismile
    He did that right after he got off the plane last night…or maybe right before he got on..lol

  94. Gosh, I really hope that Adam doesn’t play too many casinos for his summer tour…that would be so limiting if they all have an 18+ age requirement. Orianthi has a lot of young female fans, so playing too many casinos just doesn’t make sense to me. Don’t get me wrong, the 2000 seat casino venues are great for us devoted Adam fans, but it doesn’t do much for expanding his fan base. Hopefully, he’ll mix it up.

  95. I don’t think these casino shows are actually part of his acctual tour. I think these are 1 offs

  96. I think this one is part of the tour since it’s in June.

    i deleted pic as smegs says it’s old.

  97. Haha saw that pic I think it an old one from the details shot. And she isn’t nekkid she got flesh colored undies, stilletos and finger nail polish on. The reason I think its old is it looks like he doesn’t have his new piercing in his left upper lobe.

    I love the look on his face. It looks like he was doing something and she couldn’t het his attention so she did that. And he just looks at her like “What, I’m busy” lol

    sr4mjc… this morning you posted a clip of Adam singing My Conviction from Hair. Thank you!! I had never heard that — what a riot he is. He can sing anything, and with such flair! LOL :-) That was great!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLRBw-uHPpI

    Oh, wow, I thought I’d found everything there was to find from Adam’s pre-Idol days. This was new — and fantastic. Even being goofy his vocal control is amazing. I wish I were one of those lucky people who had already been acquainted with him from theater days, Upright Cabaret, Zodiac or Citizen Vein (or better yet, all of the above!)

  99. I got a call from my manager and she said we have materials that Max Martin wants you to use

    How awesome is that…to get Max Martin calling your manager?? Tres cool. (assuming the translation is accurate lol)

    Also – I was on a cruise that left the morning after the finale and I was gone for 2 weeks. I just discovered I missed a CBS Morning Show Mad World appearance. Do any of you have a “best” appearance that I should look up?

  100. So I just realised the I will be home on the nights of Adam’s 2 canada shows. And my BF will be in Arizona. This means I can be on my computer all night waiting for videos without him picking on me, hehehe yippie!

  101. Hello everyone

    Looks like they may have taken the Jay Leno Sleepwalker off of youtube. My favorite! Any ideas where I can see it?

    Geez smegs…the canada shows will be in the middle of the night my time…east coast…oh poop.

  102. WWFM is sure getting some good mileage!

    I have a feeling, a gut feeling, that as time goes on, he is going to stake a deeper claim in the world of entertainment. He is so darn talented in every sense and I can see him developing his own sound even more. I think this first album is good considering it was a 3 mth post idol project, but he is still lurking and I look forward to the full Adam album.

  103. I look forward to the full Adam album.

    omg me too :) I can’t wait to see what he does given the time :) but considering how his label and stuff were with him I think that this album is a full Adam album

  104. yeah, I mean he seems content with every step and was pretty intimately involved with many of those steps, but one day I see him completely writing an album on his own. That will be a cool day indeed. For now, we get to watch the seeds being planted and the sprouts growing deep roots. ;)

  105. How wonderful to revisit Sleepwalker on Leno. That was fabulous. And the mp3 too! Thanks smeggs!

    baddabing & smeggs… I agree. I LOVE the FYE album, AND I’m very excited to see where Adam will go with his music and his sound on future albums. I love the thought of him reaching out to people he dreams of collaborating with (e.g. Bowie, Xtina) and them saying yes. Can you imagine a Bowie co-write or Xtina duet on the next album? That would be awesome.

    We got so spoiled over the last month, didn’t we? I got so used to lots of new Adam treats everyday, but he has had a quiet day today away from the public eye (good for him!) so I don’t quite know what to do with myself tonight. You mean I actually have to do chores now? LOL

  106. You mean I actually have to do chores now? LOL

    Naw
    Is there any other mp3 you want cwm I came across of few of he talkshow performances the other day

  107. Such an offer! How about Strut on Ellen and IIHY on Oprah? :-)

    Hmmm… what are some other good choices available??

  108. Wow, ask and ye shall receive! Bless your sweet heart, smeggs.

    Ooh ooh ooh I’d LOVE to have Music Again from the Early Show! Oh and the AOL sessions would be fantabulous. I think I’m pretty well covered on the rest of it.

    Wee! Happy Easter to me!

  109. smeggs have I told you lately that I love you?! Thank you thank you thank you! :-) :-) :-)

  110. Aack — don’t do it smeggs!

    My daughter and I were talking tonight about how far we’ll travel to see Adam, given that we assume he’s not coming to our hometown. Closest would be Portland, but if he doesn’t go there, we’ll travel to Seattle, SF, LA, Las Vegas… If I travel beyond Portland, though, I’ll have to endure the chiding of my husband, because then he’ll know for sure that I’ve lost it. We went to Adam’s Gridlock concert together on NYE, but since we were already in LA for the holidays, no special travel was needed for that. Traveling to a show this summer would be travel just to see Adam, and I know my hubby is going to tease me mercilessly for it. Probably worth it though, huh? ;-)

  111. cwm
    thats funny I was saying to someone else I was willing to drive down to oregon to see Adam in concert. And I live about 2 1/2 hours north of seattle, lol
    of course I am in the same boat if I go to oregon my BF is gonna give me no end of grief for it

  112. smeggs… Well if I come up to Seattle or you come down to Oregon, we’ll have to be sure to meet up at the concert!

    And thanks for the Strut on Ice video. I was curious about that. Fun.

  113. Good morning everyone. Hope this thread isn’t dead yet but…here is my 2cents about Orianthi. I love her and think she is really talented and a throw back to a time when someone could become famous through talent instead of being half naked on stage. I think she will do well with Adam and bring in a good audience mix. I can’t wait until we know all his concert dates/locations. Keep your fingers crossed for some east coast action.

    Here is a video using the “MAN/BOY” song that Adam had to rate on the inteview with the Two Swedish Chick. Funny that it was done well before this.

  114. Smeggs, thanks for shimmy Adam. I remember that interview session, he was on tour this summer and had just arrived back in LA and I think they were across from the Kodak Theater that day. He had that gorgeous interview with Lindsay from Yahoo that day. He was looking so fantastic that day. Thanks for sharing…he’s such a flirt. I think he was talking to the gal from Access Hollywood in the gif. The fact that I remember all this is the topic for another blog.

    Adam better come to seattle during his tour..I have taken measures to make this happen http://www.twitpic.com/1csrx7

    What can be said that’s not in the picture, roflmao

  116. Of course thread is not dead until a new Adam one shows up.

    Good morning…just got back from my am run listening to Adam on my IPod. Ring of Fire…someone here said they would give almost anything to hear that live just once. And I totally agree. Can you imagine? But I’ll bet there’s rights or something that would prevent this as well as Adam saying he probably would not do any covers in his concerts. Well, one can only dream.

    Smeggingnuts you have to be sleeping right now. Right? Although sometimes I think you are super human. And me too…I LOVE YOU!!!
    Thanks so much for Jay Leno Sleepingwalker. I can’t get enought of this perormance.

  117. Oh and a thought on Strut with the Stars on Ice..(thanks smeggs). I thought the choreography was a bit of a mess. Ok, the leather and fingerless gloves were ok…more for FYE…but they should start over on the skaters performances.

  118. Okay…need some help. At the 53 second mark of the Man/Boy video..who is he dancing with. Never saw that before.

  119. Planet Fierce… Don’t know if you’re still checking in on this thread anymore or not, but the 53 second mark in the Man-Boy video is from when Adam performed on SYTYCD Australia. After he sang, the host asked him if he had any dance moves. It was cute. That performance is worth watching if you haven’t seen it.

  120. Ok. On the topic of not having a life. The GIF is from the Laura Saltman Access Hollywood interview when they were on the AI summer tour playing in LA.

  121. Adam saying he probably would not do any covers in his concerts. Well, one can only dream.

    I’m dreaming I am at an Adam concert, and he sings “Come home” accompanied only by the piano, just like at Upright Cabaret.

    Then after I recover from that (if I do), I’m dreaming that Adam sings, “I just love you”, again accompanied only by the piano.

    There are a couple of other Adam performances at Upright cabaret I might dream about too…
