Adam Lambert Interview and Photo Shoot – Schön Magazine

Adam Lambert tweeted photos from his latest shoot with Schön magazine. Check out all the photos (mostly cheeky photos posing with the zebra head!) and interview t the publication’s website.

Excerpt from the interview:

On the topic of narratives within the songs – are they real life scenarios? – Definitely. I’m pretty social. I like to drink, I like to go to clubs; I like to dance. I lived in Hollywood for 15 years and it’s an interesting city: on one hand, it can be very glamorous and full of fantasy and possibility and you’re always meeting beautiful people. But the flipside of that is that it can be very false and very hollow. I kind of wanted to talk about the dichotomy of that in the songs.

Fifth Harmony Slams Donald Trump: “He’s Catering to a Portion of Americans — The Racist Ones” – “As an immigrant myself, to have someone say such disgusting things about my people — my dad who came from Mexico, my mom who worked at Marshall’s before she became an architect, and me pursuing my singing dreams — it’s terrible,” Cabello said. Nineteen-year-old Jauregui talked about how Trump inspires her to urge young people to vote. “We have the mass majority, and if young people don’t get involved in the voting process, then Trump’s going to win,” Jauregui said. “He’s catering to a portion of Americans — the racist ones. It’s little things like that. If I can get 20 more girls to vote than that’s 20 more votes against something that could be negative.” – Read more at THR
