Adam Lambert’s Time For Miracles Video To Be Unveiled Before “This Is It”

Adam Lambert told MTV News at the AMA press conference today, that he had a lot of fun filming the video for “Time For Miracles.” Adam also confirms October 18 as the release date for the tune.

And the biggest news? “The ‘2012’ trailer that we put together with the [‘Time for Miracles’ music video] will be premiering at the Michael Jackson film, ” Adam reveals to MTV News. He’s referring to a special trailer that will run before the upcoming documentary Michael Jackson’s This Is It, which begins a two week run on October 28.

More from MTV:

“[The video] was really performance-driven. It was really about the lyric content and the emotional guts of the song, ” Lambert told MTV News on Tuesday (October 13) in Los Angeles.

But given that the tune is being used in a Roland Emmerich-helmed disaster flick, fans should expect a doomsday element to the clip as well. “There were a ton of extras on the set. What they were doing is they were staging scenes reminiscent of what happens in ‘2012, ‘ ” Lambert said.

Specifically, the “American Idol” rocker pointed to one sequence in the video where he sings calmly while chaos surrounds him. “I’m just walking through looking straight at the camera singing the song, and there’s a riot going on around me ‘” people being tossed in front of me, looting, you know, people being arrested, ” Lambert described. “That was pretty wild, to try to stay focused on the song while that was happening. But we had fun. It was a good day.”

    only problem is that Oct 18th is Sunday’ ¦.

    yes, and particularly troublesome because i will be driving back from the OU/TX football game. dammit RL! OU better win!

  2. I couldn’t possibly flail anymore if I tried. I just cannot believe the stuff that happened today and can’t even keep it straight in my head.

    October 18th- TFM released ( to Itunes/Amazon?)
    October 28th- TFM Video premieres before This Is It
    November 10th- 2012 Soundtrack available
    November 13th – 2012 Movie hits theaters
    November 22- Adam performs on AMA’s
    November 24- TBD Album Released
    November 24- GMA Concert

    And somewhere in there is the release of the single- what am I missing?

    maybe they’re using the Mayan calendar…..

  4. So much amazing Adam news today. What a great day for Adam and his fans!!!!

  5. LOL, that’s right, cool guys don’t look at explosions.

    LMAO! I always loved that song!

  6. Thanks mj but too many threads. I’m getting all confuzzled.

    So, will we see the TFM MV on Itunes???

  7. I believe that Adam’s video playing before Michael Jackson’s “This is It” movie marks the PASSING OF THE TORCH.

    The King is Dead. Long Live the King.

  8. I don’t think that I can even begin to grab the significance of this. So “This is It” will be playing at IMAX theaters around the globe for 2 weeks…the numbers are mind-blowing. And Adam is getting to introduce himself to the world on someone else’s dime (the producers of 2012 and Sony). I won’t even hazard a guess at how many people this will reach.

    And even if only 10% are impressed with Adam’s voice and search him out for additional material…oh geesh. No one has this kind of PR and LUCK. What in the hell did Adam do right to get this kind of attention.

    This video, this song, and his album better be as good as we are led to believe. Otherwise there will be a lot more dissapointed peeps than the Idol fandom. Oh my!!

  9. If it follows a normal schedule, new stuff is added to itTunes on Tuesdays, so look for it the tuesday after the MJ movie premiere.

  10. Are the AMA’s still going to announce a surprise regarding Adam? What more news can they have, other than the single release, of which I’m sure they won’t be privy to that.

    So, if we don’t go see MJ’s movie, we won’t get to see the TfM video until possibly a couple of weeks after the movie premiers?

    OK, I am loving the Adam storm, I truly am. But I want to hear his new music!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Another five days I’m wishing to pass. I’m going to get grey hairs.

    ETA: Or should I say, more grey hairs.

  11. ANOTHER THREAD?? I don’t know where to post what anymore.

    *sobbing*

    But no, I am not complaining….THANK YOU 100 TIMES OVER, mj.

    This is a firestorm, an Adamstorm, a Nor’easter, a tornado of infinite proportions…

    (And wait till the actual records come out! lol)

    As Paula said in her interview w/ EW, “He’s a superstar.”

    Oh, and thank you, Studio 57, for the list. I have flailed and squeed too much today. I am taking tonight off. ;)

    I wasn’t sure I was going to see the mj documentary, tho I loved reading about the end-of-the-prep tour interviews in RS, but clearly now I have to go.

  12. And even if only 10% are impressed with Adam’s voice and search him out for additional material’ ¦oh geesh. No one has this kind of PR and LUCK. What in the hell did Adam do right to get this kind of attention.

    He’s gorgeous, he can sangggg, and he didn’t win AI!

  13. Someone suggested a few days ago that Time for Miracles might get picked up as a sports anthemy thing. They might be on to something..I actually read a sports related article that references Adam and Time for Miracles…and the Olympics start in February…..just sayin

  14. And how the heck is Adam acting so calm on this video….I bet when he heard the news he was squeeing and flailing like a little baby. I bet there have been some real tears shed at all of the Lambert households the last few weeks. I’m just sitting here in total stunned silence!

  15. The schedule for Adam’s promotion is amazing!

    10/9/09 – TfM preview video

    10/13/09 – Adam Storm begins: BIG NEWS DAY — upcoming promos revealed in a series of news interviews

    10/18/09 – TfM released (more proof that RCA is going global with Adam because that will be Monday AM is Japan)

    10/28-29/09 – TfM video premiers simultaneously globally before MJ’s “This Is It”. Plays all over the world for 2 weeks.

    This Is It Global Release Dates

    Between 10/25/09 and 11/22/09 – release of lead album single, album cover & title, track list.

    11/10/09 “2012” Soundtrack released

    11/13/09 Global release of “2012”

    11/22/09 – Adam on AMA – premier performance of his new single

    11/23/09 – Album on-sale in UK
    11/24/09 – Album on-sale in US, Canada, Japan, EU

    11/24/09 – Adam GMA concert

    And there is a lot more coming!! I am betting on RS Cover #2 and SNL.

  16. I feel kind of guilty about this embarassment of riches, that all of us Adam fans are receiving. I am awed and amazed by Adam and grateful to RCA for pulling out all of the stops for him and his record.

    only problem is that Oct 18th is Sunday’ ¦.

    Not a problem, this is not a typical single, sales will depend on the mv far more than radio play. It’s also designed to promote a movie not an artist. So 1st week Billboard sales numbers don’t matter much at this point, they expect and want it to explode closer to the movie date.

    This music video is showing in movie theatres, it will be reaching the audience through a whole other route.

  18. I believe that Adam’s video playing before Michael Jackson’s ‘This is It’  movie marks the PASSING OF THE TORCH.

    The King is Dead. Long Live the King.

    THIS gives me chills. Poignant symbolism here and some damn good promotion.
    Oh Adam, you rule!

  19. Thanks HWC and cindy- I added those dates. I told you I can’t keep this straight, lol. I am just going to keep posting on this thread- I can’t keep track of everything.

    Txarchitect- I replied on one of the other posts about the Passing Of The Torch. I couldn’t agree more. It is no coincidence that they are premiering his video before the King Of Pop.

  20. you know, Tess… at first i was blown away by the significance and by how cool it is but i really didnt process the SCOPE of this until your post… this video… with HIS VOICE and HIS FACE will be on jumbo screens all over the world. holy. shit.

  21. Am like a kid in a candy store – Thanks a lot MJ –
    I am going back and forth the different news here so excited.
    It is really awesome how RCA is handling Adam’s launching. These guys are smart at what they do with such a rich talent to work with. They are running with him to the hilt.

  22. Txarchitect- I replied on one of the other posts about the Passing Of The Torch. I couldn’t agree more. It is no coincidence that they are premiering his video before the King Of Pop.

    SOBBING

    Remember: We knew him when he was just part of the Top 36 of AI S8. ;)

  23. All I can say is I am buying tickets at the same rate MJ is putting up new threads. First, it was the AMA show tickets, then it was “This Is It” movie tickets. I hope nobody has more atomic news for us today. I need to find ways to make more money to keep up. :)

  24. You guys are beating me to all the news and info…. I type too slow because I am on Adam news overload….. All these threads on Adam today reminds me of when a parent finds their kid smoking cigarettes and they make them smoke a whole pack to the point they throw up so they get so sick they will never smoke again…. Well bring it on…..I’ll never get sick of Adam….and if I throw up…I will lift my head, wipe my mouth, and take more in. :mrgreen:

  25. ANOTHER THREAD?? I don’t know where to post what anymore.

    *sobbing*

    I’m so discombobulated – happy but discombobulated non the less….

  26. It’s almost unreal how much promotion he’s getting. Wow.

    And it wasn’t like that for sooooo long!! Remember when he commented how the producers of Wicked weren’t really interested in promoting him and how he had to beg to get his job back after having left to go to Tahoe?

    Sometimes I feel like the entire purpose for the existence of American Idol over all these years was to reveal this man’s gifts to the world.

    Is that too OTT?

  27. Our cup runneth over! This is almost too much to take in all at once…but I’ll try LOL!

    @dishofsalt Laura Saltman says on her twitter she has an announcement to make concerning Adam, but can’t reveal it until the 20th, but it’s worth the wait. I wonder what it could be. Also her interview with Adam should be posted sometime tonight.

    October 13, 2009 at 6:11 pm

    only problem is that Oct 18th is Sunday’ ¦.

    Sunday in the US is Monday in Asia. This one is global — not just the US.

    The are designing a marketing plan to promote 2012 and it just happens to also align with making Adam a global superstar. I really believe that the planets are aligned for this one!!

    ETA: “2012” and “This Is It” are both simultaneous global theatrical released timed to align with Adam first album release. It is just cosmic. How can Adam be so calm!!!

  29. All right more description of what to expect from Adam’s album from Adam himself. (ET interview)

    It’s pop with a lotta rock to it. Real glammy, hearkens back to what I love about the music of the 70s, wrapping that up with a nice modern 2010 treatment. heh. Okay kinda what Cavallo said. Def sounds new and different. Any day now? sheesh.

  30. after today, i am even more confident that, in Randy Jackson speak this album is “gonna be da bomb”. I’m sure that RCA execs have heard some of the finished tracks and think they have a goldmine. They wouldn’t be going all out for Adam otherwise.

  31. Q3 the planets, solar systems, and galaxies are aligned and pointing to the superstar orbited by planet fierce.

    In East Indian astrology it is very auspicious to be born in October more so than any other month. Would you say that Adam’s career (eta: as a recording artist) is beginning in October?

  32. And I’m going to say what I feel many are thinking. All of this “good stuff” is happening to an out gay male that isn’t ashamed of his lifestyle or his feelings and had the guts to brave it through what could have been a very uncomfortable time for him, his friends, and his family. I don’t think anyone could have forseen this happening when he walked into that audition on American Idol.

  33. And even if only 10% are impressed with Adam’s voice and search him out for additional material’ ¦oh geesh. No one has this kind of PR and LUCK. What in the hell did Adam do right to get this kind of attention.

    Well his birthday is the same day as Oprah’s!

    Remember when he commented how the producers of Wicked weren’t really interested in promoting him and how he had to beg to get his job back after having left to go to Tahoe?

    They’re watching and crying about the one that got away…

  35. “Deleted I am type too slow because I am on Adam news overload’ ¦.. All these threads on Adam today reminds me of when a parent finds their kid smoking cigarettes and them makes them smoke a whole pack to the point they throw up so they get so sick they will never smoke again’ ¦. Well bring it on’ ¦..I’ll never get sick of Adam’ ¦.and if I throw up’ ¦I will lift my head, wipe my mouth, and take more in. ”

    LMAO! You know what it reminds me of? The movie Supertroopers when the stoner kids are pulled over by the police and the officer decides to mess with their heads and tells them to pull over again, and the one stoner kid says: “He already pulled over officer, he can’t pull over any more!”
    well I can’t flail anymore. It’s impossible.

  36. 19 and RCA did not arrange most of this. It happened because Adam is talented.

    “2012” – The flim’s producers ask for Adam.

    “This Is It” – Is a 2012 promotion

    AMA performance – 19R/RCA/Song can’t arrange that; the producers from Dick Clark Productions and ABC select who is invited to present and perform.

    And, when he gets the RS cover, SNL, and everything else, it won’t be because RCA set it up. I distinctly recall Adam saying that they were sorting through a whole lot of offer in the end of the tour interview. I think there is more to come!

  37. Wow, I have been at Jury Duty and just got home.

    Soooooo many Adam threads!! I don’t even know where to begin!!! ???
    Which one to read first ??? !!!!!

    So, the Adam storm has arrived…. :-D

  38. ETA: ‘2012’ ³ and ‘This Is It’  are both simultaneous global theatrical released timed to align with Adam first album release. It is just cosmic. How can Adam be so calm!!!

    We can flail for him so that he can keep his head in the game.
    Which reminds me of an interview during AI8. He mentions going to his room at night and just laughing and laughing. He was surprised that things were lining up and going so well for him at that time.

  39. Copied from previous thread…
    ‘The ‘2012’ ² trailer that we put together with the [‘Time for Miracles’ music video] will be premiering at the Michael Jackson film,’  Lambert revealed to MTV News, referring to a special trailer that will run before the upcoming documentary ‘Michael Jackson’s This Is It.’ 

    I am the first fantard in line BUT WAIT this line from the article says trailer with Music video..’ referring to a special trailer that will run’ ¦’ 

    The word Special makes me think it might NOT be the actual Music Video for ‘Time for Miracles’ like we would seee on MTV or VH1, special is a scary word’ ¦

  40. Jeebus. You can’t buy this sort of promotion.

    And the best is, he probably gets it for free since its a part of Sonys promotion for the movie 2012. And This Is It! is by Sony as well, right?

  41. We get the Movie video on the 28th, will go see it ofcourse. and the 2012 on the 12th of Nov.

    Adam will be local, Yay.

  42. And even if only 10% are impressed with Adam’s voice and search him out for additional material’ ¦oh geesh. No one has this kind of PR and LUCK. What in the hell did Adam do right to get this kind of attention.

    Well his birthday is the same day as Oprah’s!

    I swear to God Adam must have read THE SECRET, lol. I always laughed about that damn book but this kid has GREAT karma or something ( still crossing fingers behind back)

    You’re right — it says special trailer. I wonder if there is a TfM music video and a TfM special trailer for the TII promo.

  44. Sometimes I feel like the entire purpose for the existence of American Idol over all these years was to reveal this man’s gifts to the world.

    Is that too OTT?

    Probably but I love that you posted it! ;-)

  45. I WASN’T GOING TO GO AND SEE “THIS IS IT” BUT I AM GOING NOW. I WANT TO SEE ADAM SINGING THIS SONG WITH THE DISASTER GOING ON ALL AROUND HIM. I WILL GO TO SEE “THIS IS IT” JUST TO SEE ADAM! AND THIS IS TRUE “I believe that Adam’s video playing before Michael Jackson’s ‘This is It’  movie marks the PASSING OF THE TORCH.”

  46. Okay, I am going home now…back later…I knew today would be exciting but I had NO IDEA WHATSOEVER.

    mj RULES.

  47. I think that the headline is wrong. It looks like the MV will be out before 10/28/09 — but that there is a special version for the MJ TII. Look at what Jim C. wrote:

    Lambert is especially happy about where fans will be able to see the “Time for Miracles” video: the big screen. “The ‘2012’ trailer that we put together with the [‘Time for Miracles’ music video] will be premiering at the Michael Jackson film,” Lambert revealed to MTV News, referring to a special trailer that will run before the upcoming documentary “Michael Jackson’s This Is It.”

    ETA: I believe Jim rushed to get this out an worded it poorly. Hope he clarifies it.

  48. Oh, it looks this guy, Joseph Uliano directed Adam’s TFM music video. He tweeted this:

    wrapping up the new Adam Lambert shoot for 2012 and putting the final touches on KISS

    http://twitter.com/Josephuliano

    Here’s his website with lots of examples of his work! According to his twitter, he just finished OneRepublic’s video for “All The Right Moves” too.

    (Sorry if this was already posted in another thread!)

    Wait a sec, n/m…he’s not a director, he’s a producer. Sorry!

    Adam will be sharing the AMA stage with some major stars….

    Black Eyed Peas, nominated for best duo or group along with Kings of Leon and Nickelback, will perform on the show. Alicia Keys and Jennifer Lopez are also scheduled for performances. “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert will use the show to debut songs from his upcoming album.

    I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this. I’m all threaded out.

  51. Ok, so it’s a trailer that is being released with the MJ documntary — NOT the actual music video for TFM…is that right?

  52. The marketing of both 2012 and Adam’s album fall under Sony/RCA’s purview. Also to get a performance slot on an awards show is lobbied for by labels. It’s who lobbies for their artist the hardest wins.

    Ofcourse RCA has a hand in this, these things do not happen by chance. The fact that Adam is talented and is sought after by the industry has, I will grant, have made their job a whole lot easier.

    SNL is notorious for picking the ones they want, but it’s also well known as a promotional slot that companies lobby for. IF adam gets it it will be down to his popularity and RCA’s efforts.

    This marketing and PR scheme has been a thing of beauty so far. Touch wood it will continue to be so and will bear fruit.

    Black Swan.

  53. “Sometimes I feel like the entire purpose for the existence of American Idol over all these years was to reveal this man’s gifts to the world.

    Is that too OTT?”

    I feel EXACTLY the same way…!

  54. Wow…this is fantastic for Adam! What a day he’s having-good for him!

    Ok, so it’s a trailer that is being released with the MJ documntary ‘” NOT the actual music video for TFM’ ¦is that right?

    I thought so at first too, girlygirl but on re-re and re-reading it (inbetween having to actually work! damnit) it’s the video. ETA: not sure about both, I thought so, but now I don’t know about that part. Darn work interferring with my Adam timelines.

  59. girlygirl: Ok, so it’s a trailer that is being released with the MJ documntary ‘” NOT the actual music video for TFM’ ¦is that right?

    No, the Music Video will be shown with a special trailer for 2012. What isn’t exactly clear is if the MV will be shown without the special trailer before 10/28.

    There are some other reports that there are two different videos — a music video for TfM and a Special 2012 Trailer that includes the song produced specifically to be shown before TII.

  60. I’m absolutely exhausted .. and all I’ve done today is read up on Adam news …lol

    ‘American Idol’  runner-up Adam Lambert will use the show to debut songs from his upcoming album.

    surely they mean just the one song .. or is he doing a medley? …lol

  61. This marketing and PR scheme has been a thing of beauty so far.

    Yeah, whoever it was who got Adam the opportunity to sing a song on the soundtrack of the most hyped movie this year, really should be getting a raise. That’s a seriously lucky break right there. And, a whole lot of promo on the movie company’s dime.

  62. I think the “Special trailer” before This Is It will consist of:

    1.) A “NEW” (as in different-from-the-roadblock-one) trailer of the 2012 movie , AND,

    2.) Adam’s music video for Time for Miracles.

    That is exactly what he said in his quote:

    ‘The (1.) ‘2012’ ² trailer that we put together with the [(2.)’Time for Miracles’ music video] will be premiering at the Michael Jackson film,’ 

  63. Ok, so it’s a trailer that is being released with the MJ documntary ‘” NOT the actual music video for TFM’ ¦is that right?

    It’s a little confusing, but I think it means at least some part of the music video will be shown, packaged into or with a trailer for 2012.

  64. So many great news today, the preview before This is It is really the most unexpected and thrilling, will they put the whole clip before the film (it would be more than 4 minutes long)?

    19 and RCA did not arrange most of this. It happened because Adam is talented.

    ‘2012’ ³ ‘“ The flim’s producers ask for Adam.

    ‘This Is It’  ‘“ Is a 2012 promotion.

    It’s probably more of a combination of factors, both films are produced by Sony and RCA is one of the labels of Sony, so their is certainly some cross promotion going on in here.
    Altough They wouldn’t use his videos and promote him like that if they didn’t think he was talented and worth the risk.

  65. LMAO. I love you guys and your OTT enthusiasm. The joy is just plain fun to read. I must say the news lockdown they’ve had on Adam since the tour has really paid off, making sure that everyone was listening when he revealed all this incredible stuff. I can’t believe how happy I am for him and I haven’t even heard a single song off the album.

    Adamaloha, I loved the Mayan Calendar comment and thank you for understanding how my brain works (in that I was commenting on the conflicting date/day in the article and not the poor choice of release day).

  66. I LOVE TODAY!!! js

    and ummmm

    all I can say is ummm Adam Mitchell lambert is “opening” for an icon,performing at the ama’s AND has kick a$$ hair.

    UM WOW

    g2g back 2 bk rports now…bye

  67. tinafea:I’m sure that RCA execs have heard some of the finished tracks and think they have a goldmine. They wouldn’t be going all out for Adam otherwise.

    THIS THIS THIS! I cannot imagine a media blitz of this proportion if they were going on faith. No exec could be that stupid.

  68. LOL! Jim C is so excited about his scoop, he tweeted the news to God:

    Sending stuff to @God is a great internet meme. And have you checked out @God’s Twitter page? It does have a purty picture. But I think United Airlines should watch out.

    19 and RCA did not arrange most of this. It happened because Adam is talented.

    This. It is still my belief that they reached out for Adam and requested him to sing the TfM power ballad. He had mentioned a couple of times that they have had multiple offers and have had to turn some down.

    19/RCA just got real lucky this time around…

  72. I go out for a few hours and come back to find Adam threads multiplying like rabbits around here!

  73. Sunn: The marketing of both 2012 and Adam’s album fall under Sony/RCA’s purview. Also to get a performance slot on an awards show is lobbied for by labels. It’s who lobbies for their artist the hardest wins.

    Ofcourse RCA has a hand in this, these things do not happen by chance. The fact that Adam is talented and is sought after by the industry has, I will grant, have made their job a whole lot easier.

    SNL is notorious for picking the ones they want, but it’s also well known as a promotional slot that companies lobby for. IF adam gets it it will be down to his popularity and RCA’s efforts.

    19M does most of the marketing planning for their clients — includng Adam. Some things like radio promos are mostly a matter of money. Other things cannot be arranged by an artist’s management or record label.

    Sony is doing the marketing planning and controlling the marketing of “2012”. 19M/Adam could have turned down the offer to record TfM and they could have negotiated specific terms but they did not have the negotiating power to make TII happen — and the deal was done AFTER the song was recorded.

    SNL (which is a rumor) picks their own acts, Loren Michaels personally selects who will be on the show. But Adam would not perform on SNL without 19M approval and without 19R/RCA picking up the expenses (and charging them to Adam).

    AMA performance – 19R/RCA could have lobbied or suggested or even revealed some of Adam’s recording to DCP to influence them, the can’t arrange it. But, just like any other live TV performance, without 19M approval and without 19R/RCA picking up the expenses (and charging them to Adam), he isn’t on the AMAs.

  74. Adam opening for Michael Jackson. WOW

    I guess that they fianlly found someone big enough that it was OK for Adam to open for him!!

  75. Adam opening for Michael Jackson. WOW

    Weren’t we just discussing who Adam was going to open for on tour. Guess we know the answer now. Too freakin’ funny!

    And that means… drumroll please…. SOLO TOUR for Adam next year!

  77. Am I the only one that is bothered by this?
    How is he going to promote the single for the next month if he is not going to premier it until 11/22?

    He doesn’t need to promote the single before then. The point of releasing a single is to generate buzz leading up to the album release — TV appearances, reviews, etc.

    Lambert has a Time for Miracles as the vehicle for generating buzz. Snippet last weekend. Full leak this coming weekend. Music video and trailer in the world-wide run of MJ movie end of October. World-wide simultaneous release of 2012 movie mid November. Plus, whatever promo stuff he does, singing TFM.

    Then, the single is premiered at the AMA on Sunday night ten days after the movie, followed by Tuesday release of the album. Basically, it’s wall-to-wall world-wide Lambert between today and the day his album is released. Then, he can go on all the shows and promote the single.

    This stuff is all Sony Entertainment cross-promotion. They have evidently decided to put a bit of a push behind Mr. Lambert. I’m having trouble even comiing to grips with the exposure of showing the TFM music video with the world-wide run of This is It. Jackson is so popular outside the United States. Sony just cross-branded Mr. Lambert with Michael Jackson.

  78. just bought my ticket for the opening night of This Is It!!!

    did i tell the bunch of friends i emailed to go with me the *real* reason i want to see it opening night?

    nope.

    will they know exactly why i wanted to go on opening night once the previews start rolling?

    oh yes. and im imagining lots of knowing smirks and giggles directed my way.

    but the theater will be dark, i will have adam in digital surround sound and they wont be able to see me smiling like an idiot.

  79. Well did we lower our expectations low enough? HaHa
    I think the Adam Tsunami caught us off guard.

    From now on I will entertain any ott idea about Adam’s career.
    Even Adam was surprised about the AMA gig, since he does not have an album released, yet.

  80. I am thinking Adam negotiated with RCA to put as much money and effort into the production of the album as he possibly could and this is probably the main reason why he wanted to win AI, if the rumor of the winner getting some part of the recording cost free. I think he is gambling everything he has, hoping that it will work out. If it doesn’t, at least he knows he did all he could. And maybe this is why he is waiting with tour confirmations, he has no idea if this works out and he needs to see some money coming back in before deciding on a tour.

    Disclaimer: pure speculation on my part.

  81. Am I the only one that is bothered by this?
    How is he going to promote the single for the next month if he is not going to premier it until 11/22?

    Edited: I just read the original quote and it says premiere performance of his single.

    I’m not sure how that will work actually.

  82. I’m having trouble even comiing to grips with the exposure of showing the TFM music video with the world-wide run of This is It. Jackson is so popular outside the United States.

    This! My eyes just filled with tears when I read this…I hadn’t even thought of the WORLDWIDE exposure this would generate! OMG! Wow!

  83. I believe Mr. Lambert is mostly gambling with Sony Entertainment money. The reason musical artists kill for associations with movies is that it shifts the cost of promotion (musical videoes and the like) from their royaltiy slice to the film division promo budget. Obviously, the promo budget for a $250 million motion picture dwarfs even the most optimistic budget for promotion of an American idol wannabee’s CD release.

    In this case, it’s even bigger than From Justin to Kelly.

  84. Okay hwc, i get what you’re saying, the buzz has already started. But if the purpose of releasing and promoting the single is to promote the album then I think he still needs to do that.

    All indications are that TfM is not anything like the songs that will be on his album. The music video, movie release etc. is good buzz but is it REALLY promoting his album? What about the TV appearances, GMA concert series? Isn’t he going to sing his new single?

    The only thing I was trying to point out on my post is that the AMA announcement says that he will debut his single and I just don’t think that is accurate.

  85. Holy crap…….it doesn’t get much bigger than this! Millions around the world will see this….millions. Just wow.

    Specifically, the ‘American Idol’  rocker pointed to one sequence in the video where he sings calmly while chaos surrounds him. ‘I’m just walking through looking straight at the camera singing the song, and there’s a riot going on around me ‘” people being tossed in front of me, looting, you know, people being arrested,’  Lambert described. ‘That was pretty wild, to try to stay focused on the song while that was happening. But we had fun. It was a good day.’ 

    Just kill me now……..

  86. hwc….leaves you totally speechless, doesn’t it. What other NEWBIE has had this kind of promo?

    And….Adam is probably making some good bucks for appearing on the AMAs. Even though this is promo for his album, performing a gig usually pays. Besides, have you guys ever seen the gift baskets for these things. They put in paperwork on how to file the worth of the basket on your income tax. Surreal!

  87. Am I the only one that is bothered by this?
    How is he going to promote the single for the next month if he is not going to premier it until 11/22?

    I was thinking that it may be his premier ‘live’ performance of it if that’s what was said? But it would still have a recorded release before then.

  88. I believe Mr. Lambert is mostly gambling with Sony Entertainment money.

    For this promo, yes, but not for the cost to produce his album. That’s on Adams shoulders, on loan from RCA.

  89. In this case, it’s even bigger than From Justin to Kelly.

    Get out of here…That is just crazy talk! :-)

  90. @hwc, now that makes perfect sense. Fianlly, a roll out promo schedule I can actually see the brainstorming behind.

    I like it. The only thing that kind of bothers me is …. would they not want to get some kind of “feel” for how well this single was doing before he performed it?

  91. Wow! A new thread. I just posted on the other thread that I saw a TV clip of the AMA’s, with Adam and Paula, tonight on E News.

    Adam opening for MJ……I’ve never seen such a ‘well oiled’ PR machine!! It’s hard to take it all ‘in’ today!! But….I’M NOT COMPLAINING!!! I can’t stop smiling.

  92. Where do you go to buy tickets for the AMAs?

    if you google, a lot of places will come up, including ticketmaster.

  93. Sony just cross-branded Mr. Lambert with Michael Jackson.

    I know. I’m still finding it hard to digest everything I’ve heard today. I need a few hours of calm to let it sink in and analyze it.

    I’m still concerned about TFM branding Adam with a certain style of music in the people’s minds, I’m not sure though, I need to think about it.

    What sort of push will they put behind the single release? How will it be packaged in the lead up to the AMAs?

    I have questions.

  94. And I’m going to say what I feel many are thinking. All of this ‘good stuff’  is happening to an out gay male that isn’t ashamed of his lifestyle or his feelings and had the guts to brave it through what could have been a very uncomfortable time for him, his friends, and his family. I don’t think anyone could have forseen this happening when he walked into that audition on American Idol.

    I would have never even dared to imagine this is how it would all turn out for him. I’m beyond thrilled that the stars seem aligned for Adam to get everything he ever hoped and dreamed of. It shows that it pays to be true to yourself!

    “In this case, it’s even bigger than From Justin to Kelly.”

    “Get out of here’ ¦That is just crazy talk!”

    LMFAO nothing is bigger than J2K… you best recognize!

  95. it is unclear by the wording whether that means that he wont be performing it prior, like he would if he were promoting it on talk shows, but this is how im going to choose to process it:

    he will be singing it on talk shows
    but the AMA’s will be the first time he will be !performing! it.

  96. I guess this goes back to the old debate of whether a single is promotion for the album, or promotion for name recognition and buzz. Since many times a single may not really be reflective of what is on the album, I am of the belief that a single and resulting radio spins are more about keeping someone’s name front and center than actually “selling” the album, especially in this day and age.

    An album sells on the strength of itself not on the strength of radio spins and released singles (see Sparks, Jordin…good singles slow album) or (Cook, David….slow singles good album sales).

    And based on what has taken place today Adam won’t be needing a single to get his name and brand out there. Good karma is doing that for him…ha!

  97. I hope Susan Boyle stops by MTV News when she promotes her new album. I want to talk to her about cats. I’m serious.

    KISS AND TELL

  99. Am I the only one that is bothered by this?
    How is he going to promote the single for the next month if he is not going to premier it until 11/22?

    From today’s press release:

    The AMA’s will be Adam Lambert’s debut performance of music from his forthcoming CD release. Additional acts and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.

    It doesn’t say it will be the premier of the song — just the debut performance. That is different. I would expect it to be released a few weeks before the AMA’s. And then Adam to do interviews before the AMA’s to promote his album.

  100. God, I was working all day and couldn’t participate….OMG I need to make a list of all the amazingly great opportunities that have fallen from outer space and landed on our Glittery Alien from Planet Fierce. And reading your very intuitive comments about how he is carrying the $$ burden of his debut CD is telling. This is why his album will be better than those of the winning idols before him….it’s his money he is risking in the long run. He has no fear, he is putting it all out there. He has said it before, “I risked being safe, I always knew why”.

  101. They put in paperwork on how to file the worth of the basket on your income tax.

    So they must have to sign for the baskets and give their Soc Sec # at the same time. It is up to the company that provides the goodies to give the recipient a 1099-Misc at the end of the year for any gift valued over $600. The provider is the one who establishes the value.

  102. All indications are that TfM is not anything like the songs that will be on his album. The music video, movie release etc. is good buzz but is it REALLY promoting his album? What about the TV appearances, GMA concert series? Isn’t he going to sing his new single?

    The level of promotion that Sony Entiertainment is doing suggests that they aren’t as concerned with selling an Adam Lambert album as they are creating an Adam Lambert brand. If they are successful in creating a brand, then album sales and everything else will follow.

    I have a theory that pop music (i.e. the stuff on Top 40 and the award shows) is the musical equvialent of People Magazine. The “product” is the celebrity characters. Brittney Spears is a brand, much more than a singer. And, so forth.

    Now, as far as selliing an album, based on the bit of Time for Miracles I’ve heard, I would be inclined to want to hear more music from that singer… and I don’t even really like that kind of music.

  103. No one said anything about premiering it did they? They said he’ll perform it. The single will premier before then I’m sure.

    Sorry, not trying to beat the horse, but yes, several have posted here that the single will be premiered or debuted on AMA.

    People, are you forgetting what Adam said this morning on Ryan’s show? That we will hear the single “any day now… it’s very soon.”
    There’s just been so much EPIC news today, it’s hard to keep it straight! :)

  104. I’m still concerned about TFM branding Adam with a certain style of music in the people’s minds

    And that’s what makes it so great that he’s performing at the AMAs! He’ll be able to showcase his music to a huge audience.
    — Unless of course you’re referring to the international base where maybe the AMAs don’t reach (I don’t know — does anyone have insight on this?).

  105. Jim C’s latest tweet …lol

  106. Wow, I come home from taking care of RL, and another Adam Thread!!!

    I agree Sony just cross branded Adam with MJ

    Not saying he is the next MJ, as the music industry is different from when Michael started, but who gets this kind of promotion, for a sold out movie on widespread engagement! Not like tv, people can’t change the channel, it is not over the end credits, it is FRONT & Center before a major documentary movie that has been promoted extensively.

    Now I understand the MJ movie continuously running promo on Adam Official- Sony is playing this real smart-

  107. Q3,
    adamaloha posted this a little earlier and I edited my original post (several pages back). But my original post was based on the the announcement you quoted and in your timeline that the single will premier on the AMA.

    But a snippet of my original post without the eta was being moved down thread so I kinda went with it. So sorry to cause any confusion.

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

    Sounds to me that the AMA’s will be the promotion for his ablum not his single.

  109. Sony just cross-branded Mr. Lambert with Michael Jackson.

    I think that they are branding Adam as a global icon — and doing a really great job of it.

    And he already has all the right DNA to make it work and last — extreme talent, the right look, sex apeal, ability to charm almost everyone, and that odd mix of confidence and vulnerability that isn’t like anyone else.

    It gonna be something to watch!!

  110. The AMA performance will be Adam’s premier performance of his single from his upcoming album. It is in several of today’s interviews.

    beehiway: adamaloha posted this a little earlier and I edited my original post (several pages back). But my original post was based on the the announcement you quoted and in your timeline that the single will premier on the AMA.

    But a snippet of my original post without the eta was being moved down thread so I kinda went with it. So sorry to cause any confusion.

    Don’t be sorry — with so many threads and so much news — I am just happily lost in the storm!!

  111. I like it. The only thing that kind of bothers me is ‘ ¦. would they not want to get some kind of ‘feel’  for how well this single was doing before he performed it?

    The people who are making the marketing decisions at Sony have been listening to Lambert’s stuff since well before the tour started. He recoreded Time for Miracles on July 15th, ten days after the tour started. Before that he had done a half dozen tracks for the album, and they have all the vocals he did on the studio tracks from Idol. I’m guessing the Sony pooh-bahs are at least mildly optimistic that the album will be OK.

  112. @hwc, I agree that Sony and RCA and 19 are all optimistic about the entire package, including any note that pours forth from Adam’s golden throat…. but I like to hear performers at these boring functions sing songs that I already recognize and possibly can wail along with at home, i.e. some recognition. That is why I think his single will be out and played around the world before he performs it AMA flash bang head on fire style. JMHO of course.

    Edit: But…I still like your timeline and I have copied it down to refer to each day next to my calendar. :-)

  113. The people who are making the marketing decisions at Sony have been listening to Lambert’s stuff since well before the tour started. He recoreded Time for Miracles on July 15th, ten days after the tour started. Before that he had done a half dozen tracks for the album, and they have all the vocals he did on the studio tracks from Idol. I’m guessing the Sony pooh-bahs are at least mildly optimistic that the album will be OK.

    They have some of the best market research, social media and buzz measurement people working on “2012” the film — I’ve seen some of the Adam data and it is unlike anything I have ever looked at. RCA is releasing 2012 soundtrack, TfM and Adam’s album — they have seen the data, too.

    Adam may have doubts that his music will sell, but I think he is the only doubter involved.

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

    Debut means first. So;
    Adam Lambert’s first performance of music from his forthcoming album. However, first here could mean his fist performance at the AMA’s of music from his forthcoming CD.

    I’m not sure; It would worry me if he were not allowed to promote the single before then. Perhaps that’s why the single release date was delayed. because they got the AMA deal. And the price for the AMA deal is that they get the very first live performance of the single. So they delayed the single release because they knew Adam would not be able to promote it.

    I don’t know, I’m speculating here. The language of the release isn’t really vague, i’m just looking for away to avoid the natural meaning.

    ETA:

    I do think the single will be released before then, possibly Nov 3rd, I just don’t think he’ll be able to perform it until the AMAs

  115. There’s just been so much EPIC news today, it’s hard to keep it straight!

    No kidding! There’s so much going on, my head is spinning. I can’t even fathom what Adam must be feeling right now? Wow, wow, wow!

  116. ADAM’S party continues in another thread? I could never catch up.. :grin:

  117. Someone, in some thread, pointed out that Adam did say to Ryan this morning that the single would be out any day now. Or no, was he talking about TfM, or no was he talking about the video, or no was he talking about **head explodes**

  118. For this promo, yes, but not for the cost to produce his album. That’s on Adams shoulders, on loan from RCA.

    Yeah. I understand how that works. Mr. Lambert’s costs are the same (production, music video, radio payola) whether they try to push a song to radio with an appearnce on GMA or whether they give him a world-wide cross-branded promotion with Michael Jackson’s movie and 2012, none of which costs him a dime. Obviously, the odds of him recouping his sunk costs go up exponentially with the word-wide rollout.

    I don’t know exactly where the break-even point is on an album, one music video, and radio station payola promo for the first single, but I’m guessing that it is somewhere in the ballpark of a million copies, give or take. Even the big name producers would be eager to work on a percentage basis on this particular album, in fact they probably prefered a percentage deal. They are like oil wildcatters, too. It’s all about drilling a lot of wells in the hopes of having a percentage cut of the occasional gusher. This is one of the projects that comes along with a better than usual shot of hitting a gusher.

  119. And the price for the AMA deal is that they get the very first live performance of the single. So they delayed the single release because they knew Adam would not be able to promote it.

    That could be true!

    But you can promo a new single without doing a live performance. And perhaps they have a MV for the single.

  120. i read the press release to mean that Adam’s first live performance of his single will be on the AMAs…the single will be released to radio and for sale sometime later this month…where else would he perform it over the next month?..i doubt that it is going to lend itself to acoustic versions at radio stations, so it makes sense to make the first live performance an “event”…he will then spend the following week at GMA and all the talk shows promoting the album…makes perfect sense to me

    Yes he did say very soon.

    But you can promo a new single without doing a live performance. And perhaps they have a MV for the single.

    I’m trying to figure out how and the only thing I can come up with is a music video. But we haven’t heard anything about that.

  122. Yes he did say very soon.

    ummm Adams soon is never soon enough!!!!!

  123. Ok I don’t know if this is good news or bad news but the song “Want”, the demo song that was being push by Hi Fi Records and was released sometime in June has entered the Itunes pop Chart at 181. It is doing better then when it was first released and Adam asked everyone not to buy it.

  124. you can promo a new single by doing lots of radio and TV interviews (eg MTV, extra, ET etc.) and talking about it ….

  125. dhunken and rblaha1234, you made me cry tears of joy for Adam. It just makes sense that someone with the OTT talent that he has is now a front runner. He just needed some exposure to the right people…he already had everything else he needed. I for one am eternally grateful to both his friends in the cast of Wicked for pushing him, and those certain funguses at Burning Man for his moment of clarity to get him to take a leap of faith that brought him into our lives!

  126. I believe he actually said in the next few days- isn’t it on the Ryan audio?

  127. Dallas: Someone, in some thread, pointed out that Adam did say to Ryan this morning that the single would be out any day now. Or no, was he talking about TfM, or no was he talking about the video, or no was he talking about **head explodes**

    TfM – releases Sunday 10/18/09

    New single/from album – will be picked in next couple of days (per Adam in Ryan interview) and should be released for sale and radio in October (unless something has changed since Adam said this in a interview in September).

    AMA performance will be Adam’s debut performance of his new single — but nothing has been said about not releasing it until then.

    One final thought: Daughtry’s first album and first single were released on the same day. And his first album sold very well.

    ETA: Usually radio promos are a bit of talking then they play the record. The challange is TV but since Adam is a great interview — and has done almost no TV interviews — I don’t think this is a problem for him.

  128. For me (for you) I just know that I will enjoy his live performance of the single a tad bit more if I have played it on my iPod and computer a few hundred times first. So I am really hoping to get it soon and my def of soon is NOT FIVE EFFING WEEKS. Just sayin’

  129. Just getting here. Had work and RL. Squeeeiiiiinnnnnnggggggg. This has been an awesome day.

    He’s gorgeous, he can sangggg, and he didn’t win AI!

    .
    Yeah guys. It’s Adam. It’s Adam. It’s Adam, Need I say more.

    I recorded the interview with Ryan on my iPhone and Adam was referring to the single from his album coming out very soon, any day now. We already knew that the TfM song is coming out this weekend, right, so that wasn’t news?

  131. Most of the time artists don’t perform their debut single from an album until the week of their CD being released, they use it for promo for their album more than promo for their single. I suspect that the performance at the AMAs will quickly be followed by other performances upon the release of his CD two days later.

    Yes, I think you’re right.

    It’s beginning to sink in now, and I just realized that all the show performances, like the late shows and morning shows, are slated for post AMA date.

    So the single will be released soon according to Adam – dates can very from the 19th to the 3rd I guess – it will premiere on pop radio go to adds a week or two later, all the while TFM is spinning on HCR and in movie theaters.

    A single Music video will probably be released prior to the AMA’s and then the live performance is on Live Prime-Time TV.

    ALL is good, I think.

    Congratulations Adam bb.

  133. OK, I must tear myself away from the blogs and my, um, work and head home. This really has been some kind of Adam storm with no end in sight.
    Hold on tight, guys! It’s just getting good.

    DishofSalt Look for it online sometime tonight. RT @Kradison4life: @DishofSalt Will the interview be up tonight?

    Yes, he did say any day now for his single

  135. hi guys!!! I’ll be multitasking on this thread in a half hour:)

    btw some1 else did a current event on gays too:)

    I FLIVE ADAM

    that is all:)

  136. Okay, first of all ‘“ dealing with WAY TOO REAL real life and come back to this!!!

    O.M.G. This is bigger than I ever imagined. I mean, I know we treat him like he walks on water, but these Sony, RCA and media peeps are doing us one better ‘“ holy cripes! I wouldn’t have imagined the video debuting before “This Is It” in a million years. Talk about faith.

    And LOL to the concept that Adam “negotiated with Sony to put as much money behind him …” Riiiight. Can I go to my bank and “negotiate with them” to invest in a $10,000,000 home for me on a promise? “Really, I’m good for it, BofA, I’ve got potential ‘“ you’ll see!”

    Sony/RCA wouldn’t give a lead dime to any of this up front if they didn’t believe he is a commodity worth investing in. He’s a Blue Chip stock right now and they are laying it all on the table for him.

    So happy for him, but when I heard the Michael thing I got a little scared for the first time because this is SO HUGE.

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

    Debut means first. So; Adam Lambert’s first performance of music from his forthcoming album. However, first here could mean his fist performance at the AMA’s of music from his forthcoming CD.

    The key here is debut PERFORMANCE. Remember, not a one of us has seen Kris perform LLWD live. Radio interviews, spins and other marketing can be done without him ever performing it live. I imagine they are going to saturate the airwaves (and radio) and build anticipation so when he performs the single, it’s going to be a freaking SHOW STOPPER!!!

    Adam Typhoon is more like it.

    Is it too late for him to win the Nobel Prize? Because at this point I’m not putting anything past him.

  137. We keep talking about cross promo….okie dokie then. Adam releases a single and goes on every Talk TV show known to man and does this really great interview and the show plays a snippet of his song and Adam says ” yea, I’ll be performing that live on the AMAs on Nov. 22, and then my album drops on the 24th” and now everyone in the Universe is happy.. the TV show ’cause they got Adam, Adam ’cause he gets promo time, and the AMAs ’cause he just gave them a pitch.

    Man this guy is worth his weight in gold.

    And….the gift baskets ain’t no measly $600 bucks. The one’s at the Oscars were close to $40,000.

  138. Jim C’s latest tweet ‘ ¦lol

    jambajim I hope Susan Boyle stops by MTV News when she promotes her new album. I want to talk to her about cats. I’m serious.
    6 minutes ago from web

    Maybe they’ll have her bring Pebbles with her on her promotional tour so as to avoid another epic meltdown.

    He doesn’t need to promote the single before then. The point of releasing a single is to generate buzz leading up to the album release ‘” TV appearances, reviews, etc.

    I think he needs to promote the single but he doesn’t need to perform it live before the AMAs.

  139. Here’s what Adam said in the Ryan interview this morning:

    ‘AMA performance I will be performing my upcoming single from my album which has yet to be decided and released.’ 

    ‘The 2012 song, Time for Miracles, is for the soundtrack only it is not my first single.’ 

    ‘My first single will be something entirely different.’ 

    ‘The single from the album will be glammy ‘ ¦ it will be glitterier.’ 

    ‘We don’t have a specific date, any day now. It’s very soon ‘“ just stay posted — as soon as I have a date I’ll let you guys know.’ 

    Pretty clear that the album single will be released soon and that he will be preforming the album single at the AMAs.

  140. All of this is such great news. I always did love storms :) Can someone please remind me who Laura Saltzman is? Somewhere, on one of these threads, I read that she will have an announcement on 10/20 (I think). Anyone know what that is about? thanks

  141. And even if only 10% are impressed with Adam’s voice and search him out for additional material’ ¦oh geesh. No one has this kind of PR and LUCK. What in the hell did Adam do right to get this kind of attention.

    The instrument that he has is the right thing he does. His unbelievable, incredible, amazing voice with out of this world /limitless range.

    This video, this song, and his album better be as good as we are led to believe. Otherwise there will be a lot more dissapointed peeps than the Idol fandom. Oh my!!

    I’m just hoping they really have great song materials for him that can show the world his real talent.

  142. Didn’t Adam also say today, in a different interview, that he had one more week of recording, and then they were going to look at all the songs, and pick the single?

    If that is the case – the single release is at least two weeks out.

  143. There seems to be tons of Adam interveiws from today. There is one really cute from Radar Online where he talks about wanting to be a Glampire for holloween. Don’t know the link but they have it on the thread at IDF>

  144. Thank you again Q3. Now I can relax. Until the next phase of the Adam Storm.

    @SusanM “Is it too late for him to win the Nobel Prize?”

    Is there one for WTF Vocals? (credit to Q3 for that being my favorite quote of the day)

  145. Tess: Yea’ ¦and Adam’s any day now might mean Christmas.

    He did say that he didn’t know. Perhaps (as a small bird told me today) 19/RCA is surprised at the buzz level that Adam is getting without active promotion.

  146. Laura Saltman is posting her interview tonite, so I am watching for it

  147. Um. So, I spent ALL DAY ON HERE TODAY. ALL DAY. I thought I would come back in case anything new had developed on SOME thread (one of four, I believe?). Any news? Is Laura Saltsman’s interview up yet?

    I hope my boss know I did NOTHING AT ALL today… :(

    Are we 100 percent sure he won’t debut his single b/f AMA’s? If it comes out in the next two weeks, will RCA wait till Nov 22nd for him to play somewhere (and I don’t mean on the radio)?

    Maybe it’s b/c there is no room for the 30-piece orchestra. ;) (As I said, I’ve been here all day.)

  148. This makes me remember a photo I posted here a long time ago that I got from another website that pretty much sums up what you just said.

    I think many of us thought of Adam as Michael’s successor when Michael passed …

    It just amazed me today that RCA/19/Sonny seem to think so as well.

    Frankly, I never thought those guys were that smart.

    Laura does Dish of Salt for one of the evening programs (Access Hollywood, maybe?). So she will have her interview online, anyway, if not on TV. Oh, and she is right up there with Lyndsey Parker and Michelle Collins (Best Week Ever) for Top Adam Fangirls. :)

  150. Speaking of WTF vocals…

    Here’s a portion of the MTV article… Adam talking about recording the TFM song with Cavallo:

    Recording the song was perhaps more of a challenge. Lambert explained that working with producer Rob Cavallo on the power ballad was fairly intense. “[He] pushed me to the limit,” Lambert said. “I sang for my life. It was quite a day of recording, but it turned out great.” Cavallo and Lambert went on to work together on several tracks that might end up on Lambert’s CD come November 24. (Cavallo spilled three song titles to Yahoo! Music on Tuesday, including “Suburban Decay,” “Winners” and “Music Again.”)”

    It’s why Cavallo knows exactly what Adam can do.

    And I have never heard Adam say he’s been pushed to the limit vocally before. This will be an amazing showcase for him.. well worthy of the worldwide attention and its spot leading into MJ’s doc.

    If you saw this snippet on the other thread forgive me. I just don’t know where to post anything anymore.

    He said they’ll pick the songs for the album, he didn’t mention single in that quote. I think the single is a choice of three at this point, if the rumors are true. They’ll be choosing the rest of the album next week.

    I’m just hoping they really have great song materials for him that can show the world his real talent.

    I’m not worried about song material I’m pretty sure, based on the Cavallo interview, that it will be of quality and to Adam’s taste and style – that’s all an artist can really ask for.
    Whether it’s to the taste and style of the general public is another question entirely, but I wouldn’t by the same measure want his sound compromised for the sake of some generic mass market drivel.

    I have a feeling his album will be good, I’m hoping for very good.

  152. Thanks suebrody I expect someone here will post the link when the interview comes out so I will just be patient. :)

  153. This might sound trite but —

    I think the music industry has figured out who is the star…..

  154. Didn’t Adam also say today, in a different interview, that he had one more week of recording, and then they were going to look at all the songs, and pick the single?

    I think he said “pick the songs” that could mean that they already have an idea of the single but not the other songs that will also appear on the album.

    I hope my boss know I did NOTHING AT ALL today’ ¦

    I’ve been hoping my boss wouldn’t notice this since May LOL…

    Are we 100 percent sure he won’t debut his single b/f AMA’s? If it comes out in the next two weeks, will RCA wait till Nov 22nd for him to play somewhere (and I don’t mean on the radio)?

    It will most def be released to radio prior to the 22nd however, I doubt he will perform it anywhere before then and that isn’t unusual for a debut single. Kris hasn’t performed his single anywhere. Carrie Underwood hasn’t performed her new single anywhere that has been televised either.

    Radar online interview

    http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2009/10/exclusive-video-interview-adam-lambert-jumps-twilight-train

    I love vampires. Tee hee. Remember when Simon dissed him and said he wasn’t sure if he would be current (or said his performance was indulgent rubbish) and Randy was like no, Twilight, Twilight (this is Top 36 and then again Top 11, RoF). Yeah, I remember these things.

    ETA: I meant to write, I hope my boss doesn’t know I didn’t do any work today. Something like that. Because I haven’t done much since the road block, and I did about an hour’s worth today, tops. Bad, Sue, bad.

  156. Sony just cross-branded Mr. Lambert with Michael Jackson. I buy this partially. They probably expect Adam to have a big international following, but I also don’t want to give Adam all the credit. Sony is also trying to sell this wildly expensive movie in a tough economy. Not all those execs are in the Idol bubble like us. The trailer is also about “the movie,” lest we forget. I do think it’s great that they think Adam is a good fit for the promotion of the film. I also have an instinct that this is cross promotion unlike any other for a former contestant of a TV show (and not even the winner). It’s part of an electricity I’ve always felt around Adam. The sense that: omg, this guy is going to be a huge star.

  157. Pretty clear that the album single will be released soon and that he will be preforming the album single at the AMAs.

    Yep, you’re right, Q3. I’ve edited my post above to match this truth :)

    As for exactly when “soon” might be, IDK, but I’m choosing to believe that they have already selected the single and Adam is just being coy about it. Just IMHO…

  158. Hi, mom in the suburbs. It’s been a while. *waving*

    Yeah, this is all about HOW DO WE MAKE MONEY ON A $200 MILLION DOLLAR MOVIE THAT HAS GOTTEN MEDIOCRE REVIEWS SO FAR?

    Oh, well, there’s this guy, see, named Adam Lambert, and he might help…

    ETA: Top 13, MJ Week

    After Adam sang Black or White, Paula teared up and said he was the most charismatic performer they had ever had on Idol and predicted he would go the finals, while Adam teared up. Simon said it was in a totally different league (yeah, I’m watching it right now). Maybe that was the beginning of the torch passage, even tho Adam has admitted it wasn’t a perfect performance vocally but was one of his favorites. Oh, and Randy said he could make a record right now (then), and Kara said, “I hope Michael Jackson is watching this tonight.”

    So….there ya go.

    Boy, did Paula call it that night. “You’ve got the whole package.”

  159. And bringing this highfalutin’ convo down to the purely superficial…
    Adam sure looks Yummy in these interviews. *little squeee*

  160. Someone said that PR people that’s handling Adam’s PR would have the easiest job. I totally agree! They don’t need to do the press release for Adam. Just coach him a little and give him what materials he can relay to the press and let him say it himself and it works like MAGIC. The result they get by letting Adam does his own PR is thousands time better than if the label or his management that does it. It’s like an atomic bom.

  161. And’ ¦.the gift baskets ain’t no measly $600 bucks. The one’s at the Oscars were close to $40,000.

    Didn’t say the baskets were $600. Said that was the reporting requirement for any gift valued over $600. I’m sure even the costume jewelry put in those baskets is over $600.

  162. Good luck Adam! This year, I think, will be remembered by many as the year of the Glittery Alien.
    Stay out of trouble, and you’ll be the biggest star AI has ever produced.

  163. SueBrody Lol! How do we help promote this film indeed? In case anyone thought I was trying to be too clear-headed–I’m so ridiculously excited at how much everyone is jumping on the Adam-train and recognizing this amazing talent. I might just have to go listen to the TfM snippet to celebrate….Then it’s back to RL….Oh, and watch the little TfM video with Adam selling the hell out of the song. That voice is so unreal. THEN it’s back to RL.

  164. Well, we’ve only been waiting since MAY TO BE THIS EXCITED. I have, anyway. Boy, do I want to see him on the REALLY, REALLY BIG SCREEN. My TV set is 32 inches, flat screen. :)

  165. Adam ET

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

    Awww! So adorable :) He’s so excited that performing on the AMAs was “granted” to him- so humble…
    Whenever I see him talking about what he’s working on and how excited he is about it, I’m just so damn happy for him.

  166. REALLY, REALLY BIG SCREEN…. theater surround sound

    Ok I am going to see the movie!!!

  167. My TV set is 32 inches, flat screen

    That’s what I have and I’m very happy with it. Especially now that I rarely watch TV because of my time online.

  168. new tweet from adam!

    adamlambert Workin w Howard Benson tonight!!!! This album is gonna be Siiiiiiiiiiiick

  169. Adam tweet

    adamlambert Workin w Howard Benson tonight!!!! This album is gonna be Siiiiiiiiiiiick

    STOP TEASING US!

  170. October 13, 2009 at 9:18 pm

    My TV set is 32 inches, flat screen

    That’s what I have and I’m very happy with it. Especially now that I rarely watch TV because of my time online.

    No, I love it. I meant that I want Adam on the LARGER screen. :)

    Good point re: being online, BTW. Too true, too true.

    ETA: So NOW Adam tweets? When we are already on overload?
    I thought I was close to stopping flailing, but apparently that is not the case.

  171. and Daughtry answered him about it:

    CHRIS_Daughtry @adamlambert Tell him I said wassups!!!! 1 minute ago from Echofon

  172. Ok I was wondering who he is.. so I looked it up!

    Howard Benson Overview:
    Producer Howard Benson specializes in rock acts that have a polished, mainstream sound. Even though he first made his name in the 1980s and ’90s producing records for legends of punk (TSOL) and metal (Motorhead), Benson has subsequently focused his attention on pop-rock groups like Papa Roach, Hoobastank and Theory of a Deadman. Benson emphasizes vocals on his albums, believing that they’re the most crucial component of a record’s success, and it’s rare for one of his albums not to feature them front and center in the mix.

  173. I’m sure Adam’s last tweet has been posted somewhere, but I’m not sure which is the correct thread anymore for certain things so I’ll just quote it here:

    Workin w Howard Benson tonight!!!! This album is gonna be Siiiiiiiiiiiick

    He’s really going to be tired tonight. His first post of the day was about how early it was.

    Now I have to go look up who Howard Benson is.

    edit: thx spinastory

  174. Wow, spinastory, that is so exciting- Howard Benson sounds like a perfect fit for Adam!!!

  175. And of course he helped Chris

    Daughtry went quadruple-platinum, making it one of the most lucrative albums from an American Idol alum.

  176. and Daughtry answered him about it:

    CHRIS_Daughtry @adamlambert Tell him I said wassups!!!! 1 minute ago from Echofon

    That’s a first – I’m surprised Daughtry follows him…

  177. I wounder if Howard asked to work on the album.. snicker.. seeing he like’s vocals so much

  178. Howard Benson, on what attracts him to a project.
    ‘I love meeting somebody who is brand new, who nobody has ever heard of, and I say, ‘That guy’s a star.’ And then you just have to produce him.

    Laugh!!! see I am sure he asked!!!

  179. So NOW Adam tweets? When we are already on overload?
    I thought I was close to stopping flailing, but apparently that is not the case.

    Yeah, same here. And I’m exhausted from flailing, but when I see how hard Adam is working today, I figure, well, I just gotta dig deep and flail some more. The guy has a SERIOUS work ethic, which should be a lesson and an example for those of us here who are neglecting our work! LOL

  180. Geez, this album is gonna be a bit of EVERYTHING, glammy, glittery, rocky, dancey, pop-rockish, orchestral, and with a ballad or two thrown in for good measure.

    Just like Adam said it would be.

    ETA: greeneyedlady, HA HA HA

  181. really looking forward to lots of bonus tracks-let’s see have to buy from Target, Walmart, Japan, UK, Deluxe US, US cd, itunes- gee, did I miss anything?

    Oh Yeah, Time for Miracles

    And every available video as well

    Oh boy, better start saving quickly….

  182. I love listening to Adam speak. And those eyes….

    You can tell he’s loving every minute of this roller coaster, and it couldn’t be happening to a sweeter person. :)

  183. And I’m exhausted from flailing, but when I see how hard Adam is working today, I figure, well, I just gotta dig deep and flail some more.

    LMAO!

  184. how cute:

    Allison4Realzzz @adamlambert it is!! He da’ Man.. And he’s straight Gansta’!!! less than a minute ago from Echofon

  185. @ali22san: @OhFerras @adamlambert @elythecreep. Double yay!13 minutes ago from UberTwitter in reply to OhFerras

    lol (@OhFerras tweeted it first, I guess–do not know who elythecreep is)

    Still do not know where Aimee is today…Keith Urban is doing a show (Brian Mansfleld is tweeting it), so maybe she’s there?

    Oh, Alli, never change. :)

  186. elythecreep actually tweets, or used to tweet, with alissan a lot. I think he is a closer friend of Alissans than Ferras. I followed him for a while but gave up because he was talking about his boners too much.

    edit: actually, I was going to even unfollow Alissan at one point because I got tired of hearing about her afternoon sex.

  187. I like that Howard Benson did work on MCR’s Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge album. I’m Not Okay and Helena were really good songs off that album. I also like Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, but haven’t heard this latest album he worked on. My kids listened to them, but the only song I really remember from them is Face Down, which was cool.

  188. Basically, it’s wall-to-wall world-wide Lambert between today and the day his album is released. Then, he can go on all the shows and promote the single.

    I love the words wall-to-wall world-wide Lambert promotion…

  189. I’M SO EXCITED!!!!! I love face down

    okay gnight y’all:)

  190. Well, good nght, everyone, Laura Saltzman’s (DishofSalt)interview not up yet, guess it will be later…..

    Wow trying to fit in all the Adam flailing, working & taking care of my special needs son is stinkin’ tiring…..

  191. I wonder if Ferras and Ely Rise (Ely the creep) got the first single.
    They’re excited about something.

  192. Adamme: Someone said that PR people that’s handling Adam’s PR would have the easiest job.

    LOL! The hardest PR job is working for someone who is in massive demand. Trust me, working for Adam can’t be easy — but many of us would volunteer for the job!

  193. Not to be wet blanket, but am I the only one concerned for Adam’s album sales the first week? He’s up against two Pop heavyweights that week. Both Rihanna and Lady Gaga have albums coming same week as Adam. I know it’s all about long lasting album sales. But I want Adam at #1 on Billboard that week! Gaga and Rihanna may put a monkey wrench into that plan happening. :(

  194. I wonder if Ferras and Ely Rise (Ely the creep) got the first single.
    They’re excited about something.

    Ferras and Allisan worked together in the beginning of the process. Ely is the friend. Don’t think he had anything to do with Adam’s songwriting.

  195. Ely Rise is a songwriter who supposedly was working on Adam’s album.

    Did Ferras and Alisan also work on the album together? I know Ferras is also pitching songs for Adam’s album.

    I wonder if Ferras and Ely Rise (Ely the creep) got the first single.

    I think that Adam is recording a song by Ferras and Ely Rise with Howard Benson — because the tweet stream started with this one from Adam.

    Workin w Howard Benson tonight!!!! This album is gonna be Siiiiiiiiiiiickabout 1 hour ago from Echofon

  197. Such an epic Adam day, and there I am driving home when my BBerry goes off and it’s an Adam tweet about Howard Benson (and thanks, spinastory for explaining who he is, sounds like a perfect match) and I think, oh wow, how much more can I take?!
    Happily, I’d take much more.
    Then I get my mail and find a DVD on Adam’s Story, a compendium of all his AI performances interspersed with interviews. It’s a lovely gift from my Adam twitter friend VAIdol (holla!) and the perfect way to cap off such an epic day.
    So amazing to see where he came from, those first moments when we first laid eyes on that emo hair and those eyes and heard that otherworldly voice, when we knew this guy was going places, when he hooked us — and then to see all that is unfolding for him now. It just takes my breath away.
    *Tears!*

  198. I’m guessing Adam is recording a song tonight with Howard Benson that Ely, Alisan, and Ferras wrote together. All of their gleeful tweets came right after Adam’s tweet. They’re probably just excited about that. :)

  199. It’s a win-win for Sony to use Adam’s voice to both promote 2012 and sell tickets to “This is it” internationally. Most trailers at the movies and online are just meh but Adam’s TFM AOL clip alone already has over 500,000 views – currently he is an effective draw.

    and for LuvAdamLambert, ya know how you were posting about Adam and World Domination and we were telling you that you would have to wait? well…
    }:-)

  200. Did Ferras and Alisan also work on the album together?

    yes. Adam-Alissan-Ferras worked together one evening early in the process.

  201. So much fantastic Adam news today! On Sept. 5th my hubby, daughter and I attended the Idols Summer Tour in Indianapolis and had after-party passes, where we talked to and had our picture taken with a superstar of mega-proportions: ADAM LAMBERT!

    I will forever cherish that photo and those memories!!

    I have thought of Kris Allen today with all this Adam news and all, and wonder how he’s feeling. I know he’s proud of Adam, but has to be a little bummed out.

  202. Wow. The “This is It” movie is going to be HUGE internationally. This is a great way for Adam to be “introduced” to the whole. How exciting for him!

  203. “Fianlly” delurking to comment on passing the torch from MJ to Adam
    . . . This was from an old TV interview that Kris and Adam did on E News (which, naturally, I can’t find) but I did find the print version below. Without meaning to self-proclaim himself as the heir apparent, Adam did just that with this quote about Michael’s death. (Just put in present tense and substitute Adam for “he” or “King of Pop” and when he says “race,” just think in terms of being gay & Jewish.)


    “His voice was just one of a kind,” he said. “No one else sounds like him. Furthermore, the visual stuff he brought to the table was so groundbreaking and edgy and ahead of its time, in a way. There wasn’t anyone else really going out there like that.”

    Lambert added that the King of Pop broke barriers. “He defied sexuality and race in a way that no one else has,” he said. “He wasn’t openly masculine or feminine. He was kind of somewhere in the middle in this androgynous space and at some point he was like, ‘Black or white, it doesn’t matter.’ There were a lot of things he straddled the line of, and I think that was really cool.”

    Talk about chill bumps (tho here on Maui we call it “chicken skin!” . . . )And speaking of: Hi, sistah, Adamaloha! (waves) It’s me, adamauian from PF! Just wanted to let you know I loved your Mayan calendar line which I would have quoted if I had any idea what thread it was in! Hell, I don’t even know what thread I’m in! All this good news is just an Adambundance of riches!

  204. I’m having trouble even comiing to grips with the exposure of showing the TFM music video with the world-wide run of This is It. Jackson is so popular outside the United States. Sony just cross-branded Mr. Lambert with Michael Jackson.

    So true. Thats the first thing I thought when I first read this news.

    During the AI show, when Simon C. said Adam could be the first world-wide star AI has produced I guess he wasn’t kidding. It looks like they are giving it their all to expose Adam as much as they can and as quickly as they can. All he needs now are good songs. If he has that, he has the potential to take off like a rocket. Its going to be interesting and fun to track what direction Adam’s career goes in. I had already bought my tickets to “This is It” about 2 weeks ago so I’m excited!!

    yes. Adam-Alissan-Ferras worked together one evening early in the process.

    Um…yes. ;) Aimee Mayo STILL has not weighed in, tho, just Alissan and Ferras…I do not really know what happened to her. Maybe she lost her internet connection??? Of course I tweeted her, puhleeze, ppl. ;)

  206. ‘His voice was just one of a kind,’  he said. ‘No one else sounds like him. Furthermore, the visual stuff he brought to the table was so groundbreaking and edgy and ahead of its time, in a way. There wasn’t anyone else really going out there like that.’ 

    Glad you delurked tootheatrical to bring us this. Wow, chills, goosebumps, chicken skin, all of it!

  207. Hopefully my brain will be able to decipher all of this during my sleep…exhausted…can’t imagine how Adam feels

  208. I just found out that Ely is the pianist for (or works) with Hoobastank, taking a break while they work on an acoustic album. Someone ALWAYS knows something. I just convey the info when possible, and usual after someone else. ;)

    ETA: good luck, dsp. Sunn can’t sleep, either. I am re-watching all of S8 (Adam’s performances and Kris’s as well) to make me appreciate the journey. :)

  209. Hopefully my brain will be able to decipher all of this during my sleep’ ¦exhausted’ ¦can’t imagine how Adam feels

    LOL! I know! Just following Adam is so exhausting on a day like this, imagine how he must feel to live it all!

    Epic day, folks – looking forward to many more to come as the Adamstorm intensifies :-)

  210. tootheatrical, that interview sounds like the one Adam did with Kris for Ryan Seacrest. I remember the two of them standing there with Ryan.

    Is PF People’s Forum? Were you also on Worldcrossing?

  211. All in all, I believe we can call it a pretty good day’s work for Mr. Adam Lambert, no? :-)

    Congrats Adam, you deserve it.

    Personally, October 18th is now quite the platinum-starred day on our family calendar, seeing as it’s the day we first see Cook perform live and first have access to Adam’s initial post-Idol release…. Ahhhh…. happy day, happy day~

  212. I do not really know what happened to her. Maybe she lost her internet connection??? Of course I tweeted her

    I thought you and Aimee Mayo were like *this*.

    Did she finally block you?

    Um. So, I spent ALL DAY ON HERE TODAY. ALL DAY. I thought I would come back in case anything new had developed on SOME thread (one of four, I believe?). Any news? Is Laura Saltsman’s interview up yet?

    I hope my boss know I did NOTHING AT ALL today’ ¦

    LOL! You’re not alone, suebrody! I don’t even KNOW how many days I’ve now spent on mj’s or twitter following everything idol (Adam) related I could find :-)

    Today was the worst day yet – all Adam all day!

  214. Oh, and just to put in my 2 cents about the whole AMA premier single debate – I’m inclined to believe the single will come out well before that (in the next few weeks), and be available for downloads and radio adds.

    The actual PERFORMANCE of it will be on Nov 22, and before then Adam will have interviews and the song played (but not performing it). Just a guess.

  215. Don’t know for sure where to put this but I think Adam is going to be on Oprah. In the “be in the audience” section, they have a link labled “calling all Adam Lambert Fans” and when you click on it it says this

    “Do you watch American Idol? Are you a fan of Adam Lambert? Did his performances blow you away, and do you feel he should have won the title of American Idol? Tell us why! If you could ask Adam one question what would it be?

    If you would like to attend a taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show featuring Adam Lambert, email us now and tell us why! ” and has a form for you to fill out!

    Another awesome PR move for Adam!

    Good bye Buble and Boyle. If Adam gets Oprah, Bob will be estatic.

  222. I think everyone has collapsed from exhaustion (flailing no doubt)… is anyone still awake??

  223. I think everyone has collapsed from exhaustion (flailing no doubt)’ ¦ is anyone still awake??

    Maybe just a few. I can’t get Mjs at work, so i am late to these 1000 threads. Flailing, crying,pacing,laughing, but also getting sleepy.

  224. I think everyone has collapsed from exhaustion (flailing no doubt)’ ¦ is anyone still awake??

    barely. I though you got a 2nd wind?

  225. Of course, my other thot on the Adam video/trailer was:
    “Oh, swell — yet another movie that I have to make a point of not seeing!” I’m already planning to poke my nose into the end of “2012” for the credits and now I have to check-in early for the beginning of “This Is It” . . . Kinda hoping for a “real” movie (indie, character-driven type for me) that I actually want to see to in between the two!

    Hi, Ravengirl! Yeah, pretty amazing quote, huh? (On the lighter side, all I can think of is Craig Ferguson saying “REMIIIIND you of anyone?????”)

    And, yes, sidewalkstory — I think it was an interview with Ryan, but isn’t he on E!news? (Then again, isn’t he on E!verything???) I found the print version on E!online . . . (PF is Planet Fierce, BTW, the new Adam hang-out for when Mj doesn’t have 5 — count ’em, 5! — Adam threads for us to monopolize, hijack, play in! And I don’t know anything about Worldcrossing — or even People’s Forum! I am seriously new to all this and only started blogging (at PF) yesterday!

  226. Heh, so Adam is opening for Michael Jackson.

    No other Idol can claim that. What amazing exposure. This movie is being shown everywhere.

  227. barely. I though you got a 2nd wind?

    It’s hard to get a second wind in this storm. Where to start. So much to read. Adam you are exhausting.

  228. I knew it!!!! By the way it says Chicago only!!! Does this mean you have to live in Chicago?

    weird…it doesnt say that when I go on oprah.com, but when I followed your link it did. I will try to post a link.

  229. I think everyone has collapsed from exhaustion (flailing no doubt)’ ¦ is anyone still awake??

    ….(babbling incoherently, drool running down side of mouth, right hand slowly raises, lucidness returns )…… I am!…is….there…..more ….Adam…..Newssssss…..drenched….. from the……first wave……of storm….

  230. I think everyone has collapsed from exhaustion (flailing no doubt)’ ¦ is anyone still awake??

    **waves hand** Still awake. :-)

    I’ve just completed the massive read of all Adam threads.

    Whew. I cry, I laugh, I remember moments from this journey, I think of something relevant to post… I scroll down to find others brains work like mine and seem to post my exact thoughts, I flail, and mostly I appreciate all of you whose wonderful expressions I read in full night after night.

    What a day! I just think back to Bohemian Rhapsody and even more so Black or White… and not to sound like a know-it-all…. but I just knew it! Didn’t all of you?

    Even though today has unveiled amazing info… I’m not, in my gut, surprised at all. Totally thrilled, but not surprised. :-)

  231. Oh, you have to live in Chicago? :(

    OPRAH. Wow. Wow oh wow oh wow. We’d wondered about that (why am I still on here, flailing? I’ve been on here flailing all day!).

    BTW, allisan porter is still tweeting. Latest ones:

  234. Good night all. It’s been an AMAZING day for Adam and for all of us!! I guess we can’t complain about Adam news being too slow anymore! I am exhausted….I can imagine how tired Adam must be….and he did more recording tonight. You have to really admire his ‘work ethic’.

    MJ–thanks for the many Adam threads today. It’s always nice to come here and get all the news. So many here can get us quick information…
    everybody seems to work together and have fun!

  235. guess it’s not safe to go to bed yet.

    I completely forgot that they were in Times Square from 7am to 7pm today. Lindsay Parker too. With a few acts.

    Meant to go check it out but never left the computer today.

  236. Phew, Aimee Mayo is alive and well. :)

    Wow, everyone has weighed in. SO AWESOME.

    Okay, so I guess I’m gonna call it a night, too, since it’s nearly midnight and I have been on since 10AM. The fun has just begun!!! Ciao for now.

  237. Sometimes I feel like the entire purpose for the existence of American Idol over all these years was to reveal this man’s gifts to the world.

    Great !

    I’ve watched Oprah since the 80’s. This would be my favorite show for sure. :)

    He will knock Oprah off her feet. (hee, hee).

    Sidewalkstory,
    I remember Kimberly was a big Adam fan. She said early on that he was a STAR!

  240. Epic studio tweets from Alisan and Ferras and then word that Adam’s got OPRAH? Dead! Just dead.

    I just know that the minute I sign off word will come that he’s got SNL.

  241. OMG! Just saw the Oprah thing – are you freaking kidding me!!???

    Adam, you are KILLING me today! I am BEYOND my flail threshold for today (too much flailing since about 11am this morning) And now the Oprah thing! OMG, Adam (do we have any other confirmation of this?) I need to go to bed, but Adam is going to keep me up all night at this rate!

  242. Ok, if this is literally the beginning of the Adamstorm, then by the time the album comes out we’ll be at like “2012” levels of destruction.

  243. OMG! I missed the day (RL) and now I have no idea where to start! HEEELP! There are 2000 posts to read over god knows how many threads….which one should I start with?
    I saw the AMA video, saw the pics, saw Rob Cavallo vid – what else is out there from today?

    LOL! Bad day to miss – the adamstorm is in full effect :-)

    Sounds like you got all the big points though. There’s an interview with Ryan Seacrest too that’s definitely worth a listen. And then of course the TFM vid premiere, plus now word of a possible Oprah appearance.

    how many jackpots can you hit in one day??? seriously???

    advern, whatever you do, listen to the Ryan interview. He is DELICIOUS in that. So sweet, enthusiastic, happy and just a living doll. That will put a smile on your face.

    Oprah? I FUCKING KNEW IT!!! But am flailing nonetheless!!!!

    BB continues to Kill. It.

  248. ET interview. MTV Article. TFM song will feature worldwide before the MJ movie. Possible Oprah booking.

    Thx, Sunn. I am off to look for these…My hands are shaking from excitement…siiiiiiiiiick!!!!

    advern, whatever you do, listen to the Ryan interview. He is DELICIOUS in that. So sweet, enthusiastic, happy and just a living doll. That will put a smile on your face.

    Thank you Susan M…Ohhhh, I can imagine! Ryan must be fanboying…

  249. BB continues to Kill. It.

    BB continues to kill us. Spread it out a little BB. First we starve, then we gorge. It’s not healthy. Love you BB.

  250. I need more info about this Oprah thing.

    But that’s pretty epic. Random, but epic. Watch it be one of those “my favourite things,” things.

  251. It really is Time for Miracle .. OMG SusanM did you send the email out to Oprah? Has anybody posted this? I got it from other forum

    Oprah callings for Adam Lambert fans!!

    Calling All Adam Lambert Fans!
    Do you watch American Idol? Are you a fan of Adam Lambert? Did his performances blow you away, and do you feel he should have won the title of American Idol? Tell us why! If you could ask Adam one question what would it be?

  252. So does this mean Adam has been booked on Oprah ‘” or that the show producers are simply considering the idea, depending on what kind of response they get to this?

    Reading the form, it sounds like a done deal. They’re asking about whether you want to see the Oprah Show with Adam Lambert – it sounds like it is already on the schedule for a future date.

    So, guys, I started today with basically zero expectations of actually getting any useful, new info today. And THIS is what I get!

    Ok, from now I guess it’s best to assume Adam’s first single will be the equivalent of him singing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” – and then all will be well :-)

  253. there is definitely a link that says chicago only, and then another that is not… i wonder if the chicago only one will be used to give out audience tickets and then the non-chicago link is still open to other people to gather info, questions, comments, videos, etc.

    she does that sometimes where she will say “one of your fans, Jane Doe, sent us an email that said “fill in touching story about how adam changed her life”” …. i think we can just copy and paste todays threads and send it in.

    i wonder when the show will be?!?!?!

  254. Ok, from now I guess it’s best to assume Adam’s first single will be the equivalent of him singing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’  ‘“ and then all will be well

    Adam doesn’t have to sing anything. He went to the top of the Amazon charts with nothing. No title, no songs, no pictures. Forget snake oil, Adam can sell invisible music.

  255. LMAO at starving, gorging, and selling invisible music. Readon, you’re killing me!

  256. ok…it’s been a long day with a lot of great comments… but this is HILARIOUS readon

    Adam doesn’t have to sing anything. He went to the top of the Amazon charts with nothing. No title, no songs, no pictures. Forget snake oil, Adam can sell invisible music.

  257. Oprah!!! I’m so glad I live in Chicago! :) I’m trying to think of a good question to ask. We went from no news to all this! I can’t keep up with the threads! I’m so glad he’s getting all this attention. I hope the people outside of the Idol bubble fall in love with him like we have.

  258. I’m tempted to fill out the Oprah form, but it says you should be prepared to ask your question on air—no way, lol, not even for Adam. He is really going to be everywhere this Fall.

    And I am guessing Alisan’s tweet means that her song has made the album cut?

  259. So does this mean Adam has been booked on Oprah ‘” or that the show producers are simply considering the idea, depending on what kind of response they get to this?

    If you go to this link: http://www.oprah.com/audience and scroll to the bottom of the page, Adam’s request is under Last Minute Reservations:

    That section says”
    Last-Minute Reservations
    Please see below for last-minute availability through e-mail. Submit only ONE request. Multiple submissions will disqualify you from these reservations. If you are selected for one of these last-minute reservations, you will be contacted and confirmed by phone.

    Makes me think that if he’s booked, the show isn’t that far away.

  260. Usually a lurker, but, the Oprah possibility is tooo exicting. I filled out the form, I live in AZ so no way to attend and tried to submit form without a date. I was not able to, so sent in a pretend date so I could get my form submitted with my request for the most amazing new artist with the biggest generous gentle soul to be on the show. Just in case they were not 100% convinced they should have the Glittery Alien on I wanted to give them my vote!! I love this place, you guys made my day at work tolerable, smile on my face all day, so very excited for Adam.

    It’s so exciting. :)

  262. What date do I want to attend? hmmm’ ¦.how about 11/24 the album drop date or 1/28 both Adam and Oprah’s birthday?

    BeckyMD.. I just did it and entered her/his birthday.. :)

  263. I wounder if Howard asked to work on the album.. snicker.. seeing he like’s vocals so much

    Top 3 on the show, MTV interviewed few producers and Benson was one of them. He told MTV that he’s likely will work with Adam and he said Glam rock isn’t selling this time and Adam should do poprock/dancey songs.

  264. I think there is a way to submit without a date. I was reading of others doing it, I don’t know right now how, but I’m going to ask and find out. I still have family/friends in Chicago, maybe I can use one of their address or something. Hmmmm.

    Anyhew, crazy. Now that I gave it some more thought, maybe some DonorsChoose stuff in there? Oprah loves her charities. And maybe the people chosen would be about how the arts changed them? I have no clue. IF this happens, whoa! crazy.

  265. The Adam booking on Oprah will probably be part of the 2012 show. Oprah will do an episode about the film with the director and stars and Adam will perform TFM.

    Anyone applying for tickets should choose a date prior to opening date of the movie which is 14/11 I think.

    ETA:

    Movie opens on 13/11.

    Thank you Truthiness.

  266. Anyone applying for tickets should choose a date prior to opening date of the movie which is 14/11 I think.

    It’s 11/13.

  267. I don’t know exactly where the break-even point is on an album, one music video, and radio station payola promo for the first single, but I’m guessing that it is somewhere in the ballpark of a million copies, give or take. Even the big name producers would be eager to work on a percentage basis on this particular album, in fact they probably prefered a percentage deal. They are like oil wildcatters, too. It’s all about drilling a lot of wells in the hopes of having a percentage cut of the occasional gusher. This is one of the projects that comes along with a better than usual shot of hitting a gusher.

    hhmmm.. this is somethin I’m sure NyMichael would be able to answer or he would pick up the phone to get the answers.

  268. Laura Saltman reply tweeted to this gal “holly” (missGolightly22). Holly met Laura this morning at the AMA press thing, and holly told Laura to ask Adam about the Saturday Night Live rumor.

    This is Laura’s response.

    DishofSalt I did! has not spoken to anyone about it yet. pix is funny! RT @MissGolightly22: It was nice meeting you today! Did you ask Adam about SNL?

  269. Adamme, I filled out the form too. Don’t expect they will pick me tho. Just to show some support for Adam guesting in Oprah.

  270. Kind of a shame that Oprah doesn’t like mega-talented singers who sing with emotion and can really belt . . .or that she doesn’t appreciate teachers/education or anyone who inspires support in that area . . . or even articulate, polite, hard-working young people who . . . . oh, wait . . . . nvm

  271. Top 3 on the show, MTV interviewed few producers and Benson was one of them. He told MTV that he’s likely will work with Adam and he said Glam rock isn’t selling this time and Adam should do poprock/dancey songs.

    I found this old article with a short quote of him and he didn’t seem to think that:

    Howard Benson, who produced both of Daughtry’s albums, as well as discs by Clarkson and My Chemical Romance, raved about the 27-year-old singer’s potential. He emphasized that Lambert should embrace his theatrical side, dismissing industry chatter that the singer must reinvent himself to appeal to the widest possible audience.

    “You need to make the record that is true to him,” Benson said. “That’s what works on every one of these Idols. Why did Carrie Underwood work? She made a country record. They didn’t want to make that record, but she made that record and it worked. Chris Daughtry made a rock record, because that’s where he was comfortable and it was believable.”

    Maybee you’re refering to the following producer:

    Douglas Grean, who produced Scott Weiland’s “Happy” in Galoshes, pegged Lambert as a singer most comfortable in the pop world. “He could go either rock pop or orchestral pop,” Grean said. “He should avoid trying to be in a rock band. Real rock fans would see right through that.”

  272. Ok I don’t know if this is good news or bad news but the song ‘Want’ , the demo song that was being push by Hi Fi Records and was released sometime in June has entered the Itunes pop Chart at 181. It is doing better then when it was first released and Adam asked everyone not to buy it.

    sorry but i liked it(have in my cell phone)

    Because I couldn’t not have a complete Adam collection but I didn’t want to but this song, it is the one illegal download I own. It’s just a back-up vocal track but it’s still Adam!

  275. Just an FYI brought over from the hooplamagnet:

    As of 11:30pm EST, the TFM clip has 991,035 views when you combine the numbers from AOL, Moviefone and 23 Youtube channels!

  284. I love Adam’s singing in live performances-so his singing in the video with all the actors around should be great (Time For Miracles)Adam is a fantastic singer on stage and I hope the album reflects his singing perfectly because he is the most exciting entertainer in decades- and he is fascinating too.

  285. What date do I want to attend? hmmm’ ¦.how about 11/24 the album drop date or 1/28 both Adam and Oprah’s birthday?

    Kind of a shame that Oprah doesn’t like mega-talented singers who sing with emotion and can really belt . . .or that she doesn’t appreciate teachers/education or anyone who inspires support in that area . . . or even articulate, polite, hard-working young people who . . . . oh, wait . . . . nvm

    You nailed that – not to mention stories of perseverence, having the courage to be who you are and live your life on yor own terms …

  287. I cannot even believe all this is happening.

    Did you notice he just said when asked by Laura Saltsman about SNL that nothing was “confirmed”.?

    Maybe her news is the Oprah stuff. From that questionaire on her website it does look like a done deal.

  288. Just watched the Laura Saltman interview he such a beautiful BOY!!!!

  289. Laura Saltman’s interview is up on Dish of Salt. So cute, and dang it, there’s a cliffhanger ending to the interview that we won’t see till next week!

    Great interview, but what could the big story be.

    No SNL, no single info, no tour yet and Jim C already spilled about the video trailer showing before TII, I have no idea what could be next.

  290. I have just requested Oprah tickets.

    If I am that lucky I will just fly myself and my friend there. I am all about spreading happy. Unfortunately I am not lucky.

    ETA: I am 99% sure that Oprah is a done deal – she wouldn’t have a “Calling all Adam Lambert Fans” form if she was thinking it over.

    ETA: Laura mentions next Tuesday, is that the “soon” Adam refers to?? The single from the album maybe?

    You nailed that ‘“ not to mention stories of perseverence, having the courage to be who you are and live your life on yor own terms ‘ ¦

    ‘Zactly — no matter how many amazing alter egos our boy has, he is always his “authentic self!”

    (Susan, I know why you are having trouble sleeping so I left a message for you on Planet Fierce . . .)

  292. I just can’t believe it. Adam will have America covered with Oprah and the AMAs, and with This Is It selling out all over the world, he’s going to reach a wide international audience, too. What exceptional promotion.

  293. Oprah huh? Wow. Could someone tell me why she has such power considering she’s so annoying? Only for Adam will I watch her…….

  294. Ah, thanks, TT! Will try to go back to sleep right now.

    Need plenty of stamina for Adam Storm II. Would love if we could get some Oprah confirmation and maybe SNL coming up! I couldn’t watch the Dish of Salt interview on my phone, so I still have that to look forward to.

  295. I have not been able to sleep well, just trying to digest all the Adam info. Now Oprah and the Dish of Salt Interview. Maybe what she is keeping for later is the Oprah news.

    How can I keep myself updated on all-Adam if my work is trying to get in the middle?

    Still flailing :-)

  296. I just found out that Ely is the pianist for (or works) with Hoobastank, taking a break while they work on an acoustic album. Someone ALWAYS knows something. I just convey the info when possible, and usual after someone else. ;)

    Ely also works regularly with Elliott.

  297. OMG – I barely got ANY sleep last night just because of the excitement yesterday! What epicness! Wow! Can hardly wait to see what comes next :-)

  298. The one thing that I find so unusual about Adam interviews is that he really sounds and acts like he is just talking to you. It’s like a discussion between two friends which I, as the listener, am privy to overhear. I don’t feel like I am being subjected to a question and answer barrage without emotion and feeling. Nice this!

  299. Adam doesn’t have to sing anything. He went to the top of the Amazon charts with nothing. No title, no songs, no pictures. Forget snake oil, Adam can sell invisible music.

    LOL! Love it – yeah invisible music (or silent music maybe?)

  300. Loved the Laura Saltman interview because I love hearing/seeing him talking nearly as much as singing. It’s been said many, many times before but he is so articulate & charismatic. And his happiness & optimism come through like the sun coming up in the morning.

    The producers of Wicked in LA must be kicking themselves around the block about now.

  301. The one thing that I find so unusual about Adam interviews is that he really sounds and acts like he is just talking to you.

    Very true. And the other amazing thing he’s able to do is really adjust his own style to whoever is doing the interview, which always makes each one come across so naturally and seemlessly – no matter what the style or personality of the interviewer is.

    Oh, with adamstorm ramping up, I just realized how much I completely missed having tons of Adam interviews! Can’t wait to start seeing more and more in the coming months!

  302. Wish this would work for Adam fans!

    Due to the high demand for anything pertaining to the Twilight franchise, in particular the music from the flick, the New Moon soundtrack will be released a week earlier than originally planned. The label, Chop Shop/Atlantic, said the demands of fans were ‘overwhelming and unprecedented.’ 

    The disc will be out on October 16th.

  303. Laura mentions next Tuesday, is that the ‘soon’  Adam refers to?? The single from the album maybe?

    Laura said Tuesday, not next Tuesday, so I thought she wanted the cut as to not spoil what was going to air on TV tonight.

  304. As I mentioned last night, Ely constantly talks about sex, but not in a romantic way. I followed him until I got tired of hearing about his boners. This morning someone retweeted one of his tweets:

    RT: @MDMOLINARI @OhFerras DILDO MUCH? How’s ur PLAYTEX GENTLE GUIDE ?ahahahahaha

    Judge for yourself.

  305. If you don’t want to fill-out the Oprah ‘form’ to give a question or attend the show you can still send a generic email through the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page or through any Oprah page.
    I just wanted the show to know I would watch any show with Adam Lambert and how amazing he is – I can’t go to Chicago and I don’t want to submit a question I just want to ensure he is actually on the show and SINGS!

  306. But yesterday was Tuesday.

    Thank you Cindy. You are one of the people that I can make laugh at why I thought today was Tues. I orig thought Oct 15 was Wed, and today would be the day before, Tues. I am sitting here working on my own return for the deadline. Yesterday I realized the reprieve of having an extra day, but all was forgotten this morning.

    edit: “the shoemaker’s shoes”

  307. Q3….

    My understanding is that once all the tracts are laid down and the cover is ready to go, the physical part of “pressing” (such an old archaic term) the CD and packing for distribution is pretty rapid. Sometimes the 4 week down time is factored into the equation for any unforseen problems…which hopefully won’t occur. (I surmise that there will be more tracts available than space on Adam’s album).

    So if the album is ready and the demand becomes high because of the “this is it” campaign I am sure they could blow the album out early….but then Adam would step on Kris’ toes…and how would that go over in the Idol world (the general public could care less)?

    And, now that Adam is scheduled for the AMAs the timing just seems so opportune to hit the airwaves on Sunday and the downloads on Tuesday. Even though I’d like to see the album as soon as possible (my handmade Adam CD is getting frazzled from all the overwork) I think the 24th is still optimum for Adam.

  308. Adam doesn’t have to sing anything. He went to the top of the Amazon charts with nothing. No title, no songs, no pictures. Forget snake oil, Adam can sell invisible music.

    Ha ha, not wanting to infringe on anyone’s excitement, and it is a fun time to be a fan, when everything is happening for the first time, but just a dose of reality, other Idol’s cds also went to the top on Amazon before there was a title or a picture, including Clay and David Cook and others, it happens because of the huge AI audience that is ready to buy the first cd no matter what it is. Don’t forget that when 38 million (give or take) people watch a show, the first round of cd sales will be huge no matter what is on it.

    That’s not to diminish Adam’s buzz, which is pretty extraordinary, but to add some context for the Amazon stuff.

    Great interview, but what could the big story be.

    No SNL, no single info, no tour yet and Jim C already spilled about the video trailer showing before TII, I have no idea what could be next.

    Great interview! That ending was way too cruel! Not at all sure what the Tuesday “secret” could be (though thought it was hilarious how much Adam was freaking out at the end not knowing where Laura was going with it :-) )

    Yeah, he didn’t say anything about SNL :-( Too bad. Well, if nothing HAS been offered yet, I still think it’s cool when these various interviewers bring the rumors up, just as a way of getting the word out there – “Hey, SNL, peeps! Sign Adam up for a show, hint hint.” Who knows – it definitely can’t hurt!

  310. Over on Vote for the Worst they call Adam’s OTT fans sparkle cows. Last night I embraced my inner sparkle cow because as soon as I read on that website (saw it there first) that Adam’s video was going to be showing before “This is It” I went to the “This is It” website and bought tickets.

    The movie opens on 10/28 but a couple of the theaters are doing a preview showing at 9pm on 10/27. I was afraid that if I waited until the 27th to get tickets it might sell out so I went ahead and got the tickets. Then I laughed at the OTT sparkle cow I had become.

    Ok, I can finally admit it….I’m flailing. In my defense, I was already planning on seeing “This is It” even though I wasn’t planning on buying tickets two weeks in advance. :)

  311. I may be sparklely but I am not a cow – but whatever. I wonder if LA was out last night playing in the Adamstorm ;p

    ETA: it’s not just all the good things happening with Adam, I know it’s not unique, but he is and his excitement about all of it makes me excited.

  312. I got my ticket to THIS IS IT last night, Halloween (MAWHAHAHA) at 4pm. As of now, I am going alone, but hopefully someone will go w/ me. It’s apropos to go on Halloween, but it was also the only Saturday showing, and I watch football on Sunays (priorities, ppl!). Not sure what to do about Oprah, but it’s a good idea to show that yes, I want ADAM on your show! While I never watch it–I prefer Ellen (I am sure he’ll be ON THERE soon, maybe around the GMA’s, b/c it’s in NYC and his release date, right?), but Oprah is HUGE. I mean, her book of the month selections go to the Top of the publisher’s lists.

    I am still flailing. And Laura Saltzman’s interview was so great. She is a fangirl, but a tempered one, and how excited but humble was Adam? OH MAN, he is one special dude. :)]

    We need a new thread, hee hee. BTW, I think his single will be released next Tuesday, and that is why she will interview him again. I HOPE SO!!!

  313. My work server blocks this site ‘ ¦bummer!

    I’ll check google for you to see if they are anywhere else.

    edit: OK, glad you found them.

  314. madnessinmotion- don’t pay attention to them. They are irrelevant anymore, with the exception of their photochops. There is about 10 regular posters on there now and the only thing they can come up with is calling fans fat/cows/frauen.The irony of it all is they probably spend as much time trying to dig up dirt or generally complain as regular fans spend being positive. They are still tards. I got a kick out of their little temper tantrums that they weren’t able to make swastikagate happen. Now they are shifting over to Rickey’s because they are bored with each other. It must suck to be them.

  315. BTW, I think his single will be released next Tuesday, and that is why she will interview him again. I HOPE SO!!!

    I don’t think it relates to his single because Adam said the single hasn’t been chosen yet. If he doesn’t know the single, neither does Salzman.

    My guess is that it is related to Time for Miracles. It’s either her singing it for him or asking him to sing it to her or questions about the lyrics or something like that.

  316. even though it’s a cut up snippet TfM sounds really good on my ipod – I’m feening for the whole song

  317. Fianlly, a site my work server doesn’t block! Love those pictures, particularly the fact that they are publicly arm in arm. How positively normal! A Change Is Gonna Come.

  318. Adam looks like he is smiling when he is kissing Drake. And with those bright camera lights, methinks they put on a show to counteract the story about their “fight”. No way did they not know they were being photographed.

  319. Not as hot as Heath’s kisses but hey it was only a peak.. I could’nt imagin everywhere I go there goes a camera.. yikesssss… good luck with that Adam!!!!

  320. You have to laugh at all the absurdity – environmentally-friendly canvas shopping bags, wearing seat belts while smooching and running into Brandy of all people – “The boy is mine.” Yesterday was epic in so many ways.
    :-)

  321. I just ate so I won’t be looking at those pics and video. Get a room Adam. PDA’s are gross.

    Oprah is way overhyped. Yes, he’ll sell more CD’s but Ellen will be a more enjoyable appearance (if he appears there).

  322. I do not like TMZ but it made me happy to see Adam and Drake out and about and perfectly comfortable kissing in front of the camera. I just have to admire Adam’s refusal to be anyone other than who he is. I grew up in a very conservative environment and being an Adam fan has opened my heart and mind like I never imagined. A change is definately gonna come and none too soon.

  323. I just ate so I won’t be looking at those pics and video. Get a room Adam. PDA’s are gross.

    Actually it was nothing big – I thought it was rather sweet.

  324. Well I don’t think I will watch the video as much as I love seeing Adam I don’t like the intrusivness of some of the pictures.. And I want to be the old woman in the disney movie who hits the lion with her purse!!! BAD Kitty!!! leave the boy alone! reason I don’t buy gossip mags.

  325. I just ate so I won’t be looking at those pics and video. Get a room Adam. PDA’s are gross.

    lol. have to love you clearone. however that kiss was accidentally for the fight story of a few days ago, so he gets a pass.

  326. And I want to be the old woman in the disney movie who hits the lion with her purse!!! BAD Kitty!!! leave the boy alone! reason I don’t buy gossip mags.

    and you will want to smack a couple of them in that video – they are hounds – they can make a person never want to get their picture taken.

  327. lol. have to love you clearone. however that kiss was accidentally for the fight story of a few days ago, so he gets a pass.

    I don’t think it had anything to do with the fight…

  328. I think the smoochy pic is adorable, and Adam looks remarkably happy considering he’s being chased by paps at the 7-11. LOL at Drake clinging to him for dear life! Adam had quite a day yesterday, and I’m glad he got to to have his bf with him to share the happiness. (And I love the sweatery thing!) How the heck does he get his hair to look so good even in the rain, is what I want to know…

    As for the Saltman interview, I love when he says, “I don’t really do anything by being careful, I like to take risks. If I were being cautious or careful I wouldn’t be being myself.”

    This is really a huge part of why I think so many incredible things are happening for Adam. He knows what he wants and is brave enough to go after it. This incredible courage combined with his brilliant talent is such a force- no wonder things are just exploding for him right now.

    And Oprah, well, she has her faults, but there’s no denying she has the golden touch. When she talks about something, people listen. And Adam’s story is right up her alley. Her fans are going to lap him up.

  329. Drake is a lucky SOB

    ahhhhh to be 20 years younger and a Guy!!!! lol

  330. I simply cannot catch up with all the videos and pics from all day yesterday, and I simply cannot pore thru 1200 comments looking for links! Is there a comprehensive list anywhere of all the interview, vids, pics, etc. that turned up for yesterday, and if so, where is it???

    The lucky person who posts such a comprehensive list gets my undying gratitude and a… prize… yeah, that’s it…. a prize…..

  331. ahhhhh to be 20 years younger and a Guy!!!! lol

    ROFL, spinastory!! Exactly! When my husband teases me about my Adam obsession, I remind him that unless I wake up as a twenty-something gay man, he has nothing to worry about. But if I did…

  332. The Access Hollywood interview is soooo good!

    Adam and LAura have such good chemistry and the conversation between them just flows.

    Loved it.

    What’s happening Tuesday????

  333. How the heck does he get his hair to look so good even in the rain, is what I want to know’ ¦

    LOL! I SOOOO need to get hooked up with his products. My hair is a mess in the rain!

    What’s happening Tuesday????

    Well, that’s the new million dollar question :-) Something related to:

    * First single?
    * TFM?
    * Possible tour?

    Who knows? But the suspense is going to kill me!

  334. Well I don’t think I will watch the video as much as I love seeing Adam I don’t like the intrusivness of some of the pictures.. And I want to be the old woman in the disney movie who hits the lion with her purse!!! BAD Kitty!!! leave the boy alone! reason I don’t buy gossip mags.

    You’re right those type of pics are intrusive…..another reason I won’t look at them. TMZ and the like are scum. Celebrities private lives are none of our business.

  335. Does anyone have a link for the Dish of Salt video on YouTube? I can’t see the accesshollywood video on my work PC or on my cell phone.

    ETA: Thank you to Sunn and Chipmunk for posting links on the headlines thread. No longer needed here. :)

  336. OMG!! I finally caught up. AND am officially “delurking”!! Have shared as much as possible with my best friend-my husband- who also liked Adam from the beginning as he has a background in music and got caught up in Adam’s talent. He’s been VERY supportive of my “addiction”, time spent on this site and went to 2 tour concerts this year with me and really enjoyed both. I share many tidbits with him as they occur BUT–TODAY, actually YESTERDAY WAS TOO MUCH !!! I just can’t overwhelm him with ALL that happened. Told him about Ryans’s interview and the news there and had him listen to the interview with Rob Cavallo and this morning the news about the TFM video with TII. But I needed to delurk and tell you all howmuch fun it’s been having a place to come for information and discussion and I read every thread here about Adam. I will probably stay more in the background but have been so happy to havwe you share your feelings and insight with me as we make this epic journey

  337. Actually it was nothing big ‘“ I thought it was rather sweet.

    Nothing particularly wrong with it, IMO. What I object to is the ultra-low class vermin who took the pic and those far beneath them who published it.

  338. Larc

    Actually it was nothing big ‘“ I thought it was rather sweet.

    Nothing particularly wrong with it, IMO. What I object to is the ultra-low class vermin who took the pic and those far beneath them who published it.

    You summed it up for me as well. HOWEVER, I did giggle with glee to see him happy in love. It makes me SOOOOOO happy for him. His darling Voodoo down dreamy lover is so cute.

  339. Welcome little dutchess, delurk more often. Yesterday was definitely overwhelming with news, I’m exhausted today!

  340. The Adam Lambert Fans’ application for Oprah’s show has been on her site since AI was over. I did a search for it on her site around the time the rumor circulated that Adam was going to be on Larry King. I forgot about it and never thought to post it here when I did see it.

  341. They have some of the best market research, social media and buzz measurement people working on ‘2012’ ³ the film ‘” I’ve seen some of the Adam data and it is unlike anything I have ever looked at. RCA is releasing 2012 soundtrack, TfM and Adam’s album ‘” they have seen the data, too.

    Adam may have doubts that his music will sell, but I think he is the only doubter involved.

    AHHHHHHHHHHH
    whatwhatwhat
    Q3 explain yourself! XD
    AHHHH *dissolves*
