In a recent interview with Velocity Live Radio from the Long Island press hour, Adam Lambert talks about his album, the tour, and taking some downtime when it’s over.
A most interesting soundbite comes when the interviewer asks Adam, “What’s the craziest thing that’s ever happened to you?”
There’s a lot of very interesting fan encounters–very, very overzealous fans, and I love them all. They’re super supportive, and they obviously put me where I am. You know, if it weren’t for these fans, I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I did. Sometimes, they’re a little sweaty, A little smelly–very touchy-feely. And some of the gifts are interesting. You know, I got, like, an inflatable kangaroo at one point, four feet tall, and I kind of was like, ok, well, thank you, this is sweet, what the…am I going to do with this?
Adam hasn’t been meeting fans by the buses, and my spidey sense tells me that’s going to be the policy for the rest of the tour. I realize there are many respectful fans out there, but with crazies who scream in his face, try to touch him and invade his personal space, I can’t blame him for not wanting to deal.
But calling fans smelly? Lulz. That might be crossing the line…
