Adam Lambert’s Birthday Wish to Benefit True Colors – In America, up to 40% of youth experiencing homelessness identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT), while just 7% of the general youth population identifies as LGBT. The discrepancy is overwhelming and it’s impossible to ignore. Adam believes that no young person deserves to be homeless – let alone because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. For his birthday this year, the singer, songwriter, and current Queen frontman is asking fans to donate in support of the effort to end LGBT youth homelessness. Your support will enable the True Colors Fund to continue our work to not only end LGBT youth homelessness in America, but prevent young people from becoming homeless in the first place. Adam’s 34th Birthday is Today. You can donate HERE.

Emily Ann Roberts found her voice long before she was on television – There was a lot of music in Emily Ann Roberts before she became a popular finalist on “The Voice.” The 17-year-old Karns High School junior says she soaked up her father’s CD collection when she was younger. “I rode around with my dad when I was younger, and he just played his favorite albums for me, so I just grew up on that and just latched on to it,” says Roberts. “It’s really fun to take his music and try to bring it into my generation. I just think that music has so much soul and it’s just so special that I don’t think it should be forgotten about.” She says there was one album that was particularly special — Ricky Skaggs’ disc “Soldier of the Cross.” – Read more at Knox News

Simon Cowell Promises to Shake Things Up on ‘America’s Got Talent’: ‘There Aren’t Really Any Rules’ – “I’ve been thinking about it for a while. We did actually talk about me doing the show a few years ago, and at the time I couldn’t do it,” he explains. “But having been on the British show ever since it started, every time I used to turn up and watch America’s Got Talent, there was a part of me that always thought, ‘You know what? It would be a really fun show to do.’ So when it came up again this time, I thought it was just too good an opportunity to turn down. And I want to experience what it’s like judging American talent on this show, compared to just British talent.” – Read more at US Magazine
