Adam Gives Ryan Advice

Singing doesn’t always come easy for Kris Allen

SINGAPORE : It’s been his dream since he was 13 to become a singer but singing doesn’t always come easy for American Idol 8 champion Kris Allen.

The 24-year-old dreads singing in front of small groups as he gets “tensed up” and “scared”. One wonders how he made it through the Idol auditions.

“I’d rather sing in front of a million people than you guys, ” Allen told reporters during an interview at Mandarin Oriental Singapore on Tuesday.

And it’s worse if you are family. So the Arkansas native decided to take action and gave his mum song cards for Christmas which she could use to force him to sing.

“She would pull it out once in a while and go ‘okay now you have to sing’ because I couldn’t say no to it, so that was really rough, ” he said.

More Idol Headlines after the JUMP…

Carrie Underwood, others see post-Grammy album sales bump

Many winners and performers from the Grammy Awards saw significant sales increases last week — notably, for our purposes, Carrie Underwood. The former American Idol champ saw all three of her albums makes The Billboard 200 with week-over-week percentage increases in the double digits.

Play On moved back into the Top 20, as a 65 percent increase brought the album’s weekly sales to nearly 30, 000. Both Some Hearts and Carnival Ride benefited as well, seeing more than 30 percent growth.

Haiti single is ‘fastest seller’ charity track

Simon Cowell’s Haiti song featuring Leona Lewis and Mariah Carey, has become the fastest-selling charity single this century.

The Official Charts Company said the record has topped the 200, 000 sales mark in just two days.

The star-studded cover of Everybody Hurts is also on course to have one of the biggest first week sales of any single since 2000.

All proceeds will go to helping the victims of the Haiti earthquake.

What Would ‘Idol’ Be Like With Howard Stern?

Simon Cowell may have a reputation as “Mr. Nasty, ” but “American Idol” fans won’t know what hit them if shock jock Howard Stern takes his place. Cowell is leaving the popular talent show at the end of the current season.

Stern was rumored as a possible replacement by the New York Post last week, and earlier this week, he told his satellite radio listeners that he would consider taking the job.

“There’s not a better job on the planet than judging that f—ing karaoke contest, ” he said, paying the show a backhanded compliment on his Sirius radio show Monday.

‘American Idol’ Without Simon Cowell? Sarah Silverman Is Worried

Tuesday night marked the beginning of the Ellen DeGeneres era on “American Idol.” The evening also moved us one episode closer to the end of the Simon Cowell reign of caustic truth-telling. Some worry about this passing of the reality judge’s torch, while others embrace it. You can count Sarah Silverman, another caustic truth-teller in her stand-up comedy, in the “Uh-oh, there goes ‘Idol’ ” camp.

Jordin Sparks Designing Jewelry to Benefit Haiti

Former American Idol winner Jordin Sparks is doing her part to give back to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Last week she participated in the all-star group of artists who banded together to record a remake of “We Are the World.”

And Hollyscoop also got the exclusive scoop on another project Miss Sparks is a part of, which combines fashion with charity. Jordin teamed up with Pennyroyal creator and designer Tim Foster to create her very own necklace design for the company’s Signature collection, and part of the proceeds will go to fund mobile medical units in Haiti.

Fantasia on the eye-opening experience of starring in ‘The Color Purple’

“I would seem to walk off the stage, with her still hanging on my back or going home with me. It was different. It was hard. It was scary. It was weird. I’d call my mom sometimes, ‘Mom, what’s going on?’ — and she would ask, ‘Do I need to come?’ ”

Performing on Broadway was the stuff of fantasy for Fantasia Barrino, the 2004 “American Idol” winner who begins her last appearance in “The Color Purple” on Wednesday at the Pantages Theatre.

When the play’s producer approached her in 2006 about playing the lead, Miss Celie, in a musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, of course, she wanted to do it. But the young single mother had no idea what she was getting herself into — the hours of rehearsals and daily shows plus the challenges of living away from her family, especially her young daughter.

Sales Slip for Musicals

The Broadway production of “Hair, ” which won the 2009 Tony Award for best musical revival, dipped below the $500, 000 mark in box-office grosses last week for the first time since opening last March. It was one of several shows with declining ticket sales during the usual midwinter doldrums on Broadway.

“Hair” is also close to signing new leads, and is hoping to get a box-office boost by hiring the former “American Idol” sensation Ace Young to play Berger. Berger is now played by Will Swenson, who is opening the London production of “Hair” next month with other members of the original Broadway cast.

Spotlight grows brighter for Ayla Brown

Let’s set the record straight.

Ayla Brown is available. She is available as a single or five-track EP on iTunes.

The former “American Idol” contestant and current Boston College women’s basketball star released her third studio effort, “Circles, ” a week after her father, Scott Brown, won a U.S. Senate seat (and said she was “available”).

As for the fatherly faux pas heard around the world, the 21-year-old communications major said, “It was definitely funny. It was definitely innocent. That’s so my dad. He loves to joke around and I love him for it.”

For ‘Idol’ Debut, Ellen Parties With Mom — Not Simon

Along with the millions of viewers that tuned in last night to watch Ellen DeGeneres make her ‘American Idol’ debut was one very special viewer indeed — her mom.

“Ellen invited her mom and a close friend over to her house to watch along with everyone else in America, ” a friend of the new judge tells me. “It was super causal with pizza, salad and a few glasses of champagne to celebrate. Plus a home-made cake from her number one fan — Mama DeGeneres.

“Simon had suggested all the judges go out to dinner to celebrate, but Ellen decided she would rather celebrate her joining America’s number one show with her close friends and family, ” the pal said.

We thought you did great, Ellen. I’m sure mom did too!

Jessie James helps Hatian Orphans

MERCURY RECORDING ARTIST JESSIE JAMES HELPS HAITIAN ORPHANS
Nashville concert and silent auction raise funds for Dove orphanage in Port-au-Prince

On February 11, 2010, music artists Jessie James and Alyssa Bonagura will perform at The Listening Room in downtown Nashville to benefit Dove Orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. During the performance, a silent auction with items donated from The Rolling Stones, Danny Gokey, Darryl Worley, Dave Barnes and others will be available.

Following the earthquake, Liz McKie, director of 501(c3) nonprofit, Dove Missions, received a phone call from a friend in Port-au-Prince saying than an orphanage had collapsed and 45 young children needed shelter, food and water immediately. After exhausting other options, Liz and her team took on the incredible responsibility of expanding their mission and offering a home, food, heath services and hope for an education to these children; however, their mission is quickly being drained of its resources and is in immediate need of funding and supplies.

  1. “Simon Cowell’s Haiti song featuring Leona Lewis and Mariah Carey, has become the fastest-selling charity single this century.”

    well theres another ego boost for him….. though good for haiti, but still.

  2. From someone who attended Kris’ concert:

    Singapore concert truly epic. @KrisAllen was literally molested throughout the show. But he seemed to love it.

  3. Oops! I misread one of the headlines. I thought it said: “Jesse James Hates Haitian Orphans”

  4. This was one of the best articles I have seen about Adam. Rockstar Weekly really supports him

    I’d take these with a grain of salt. I believe they are written by Adam fans, not true industry people.

  5. This was one of the best articles I have seen about Adam. Rockstar Weekly really supports him.

    What a beauifully written article! And yes it was written by “true industry people”, not Adam fans (although the two are not mutually exclusive).

  6. Pic of Danny from visit to Austin radio station this morning.Looks to be a ‘family friendly’ station, not one of the three TX country stations listed for Danny’s schedule today. Maybe they saw he was in town and requested an extra interview.

  7. “I’d take these with a grain of salt. I believe they are written by Adam fans, not true industry people.”

    Etty Payne is the UK Rock Star Weekly Correspondent. I believe that could qualify her as “industry people”. The article is beautifully and professionally written. And I agree that she could also be an Adam fan. As noted above the two aren’t mutually exclusive.

    It looks like a legitimite magazine to me.

  9. Great article…those Canadians are really lovin’ Adam!!
    Canada Rocks!!

  10. the “‘Saddle Sore Saloon in Norco” is in CA, again in the Inland Empire, right around where I live. So what exactly is happening there with Danny Gokey? Anyone? Is he going to be there?

    so now Adam is back to being a “rock” star? ;) ummm, his album is all pop/dance. rock is not just black eyeliner and leather pants. seriously, that lady (author of the article) needs to take a chill pill.

  12. mj, I know California cities have funny spellings, but please correct the spelling of the names of the places where David Cook and Adam Lambert are having their concerts later this month in case someone wants to see them and needs the real spellings for mapquest purposes or whatever. Cabazano s/b CABAZON and India s/b INDIO. Both places are in Riverside County, about 1.5-2 hours drive SE of Los Angeles. COME SEE THEM!!

  13. Etty Payne is the UK Rock Star Weekly Correspondent. I believe that could qualify her as “industry people”.

    I couldnt find any non adam related articles written by this lady. not sure if she’s just a fan correspondent or a real journalist with industry experience. a wouldnt put too much cred on her title. like resumes, job titles should be taken with a grain of salt :) speaking from personal experience as ive gotten a bit fancy with mine LOL

  14. This was one of the best articles I have seen about Adam. Rockstar Weekly really supports him.

    shit I think she kicked Lyndsey out of lambert’s ass and got in there herself. I kid, I kid. I liked some of the points in the article but IMO, it sounds like it came off a fan board.

  15. “Simon Cowell’s Haiti song featuring Leona Lewis and Mariah Carey, has become the fastest-selling charity single this century.”

    well theres another ego boost for him….. though good for haiti, but still.

    I think in this case the good outweighs the bad. I’m thrilled because that’s more money for haiti and they need as much as they can get right now.

  16. GreenHippo, see here? Looks like the radio station is giving out passes. When Danny’s been doing these radio/tour promo concerts, he usually sings anywhere from ~4 or more songs in the daytime/morning events, and 7-8+ for the evening events. He and the three band members with him put on a good show.

    Awesome gift :-) And Happy (snow-filled) b-day! My b-day was Monday (Feb 8 ) (Aquarius power!)

  24. I don’t think going on SNL would be breaking news for Extra. I am hoping maybe performing SFW at the Olympic opening ceremony! I know wishful thinking but a girl can dream can’t she?

    The people at EXTRA, Acess Hollywood, and Entertainment Tonight, must really love Adam, because they have a lot of segments about him. I hope that he is hosting SNL, it will be hilarious and a lot of fun for him, plus a chance to sing.

  26. I didn’t read the rockstarweekly article-I can gush about Adam enough,thankyouverymuch so I Sony need someone to do it for me ;)

    shit I think she kicked Lyndsey out of lambert’s ass and got in there herself.

    LOL

    not that target is the authority on this, but they organizes FYE as rock LOL

  27. Happy Birthday Luv! I remember that 13 was a really fun age. Enjoy!

    I hope that the blizzard doesn’t put a damper on Adam’s plans. Air traffic tomorrow will probably be difficult. Hopefully he will get VIP treatment and not have any problems.

  28. I don’t think going on SNL would be breaking news for Extra. I am hoping maybe performing SFW at the Olympic opening ceremony! I know wishful thinking but a girl can dream can’t she?

    That would be wonderful. Or, maybe about actually strutting the catwalk during fashion week? Speculation is good!

  29. Adam is NOT performing at the olympics LOL. He is not canadian! It is unusual for non-natives to perform in opening or closing ceremonies (I know there were such performances in beijing tho)

  30. Ok, not getting my hopes up just yet about the Adam news on Extra – I just don’t want it to be something we already know about, because that seems to happen quite often.

    Thanks, luv :-)

  34. thanks steph6449, but I am at work and all these links you provided are being “websensed” here, so I can’t link to them. I also can’t stand KFROG, so I was and still kinda am cluless. But as I see it, one can only go to this concert if one has a free ticket won via the K-Frog radio station. Oh well, not that great of a Danny fan anyway.. Would have been great though, since it’s only 15 min away from my home…. sigh

    BUT I have my Adam tix w/Glamily reunion – whoo hoo and I’m gonna wear my Purple MJ sign(button) – hope to see as many as possible of you there!!

  35. HAPPY 13th BIRTHDAY, LUV!! HAVE A FANTASTIC AND AMAZING DAY!!!!! (Throwing some “GLITTER” around in your honor!)

  36. Happy Birthday Luv! Enjoy your day. My California grandkids are complaining that they NEVER get a snow day off!

  37. GreenHippo, this is what is posted at the K-FROG site. Looks like Saturday would be the day they’ll start to give away passes. Not sure how big that venue is, hopefully they’ll give away a lot of tix for anyone interested to attend.

    K-FROG thanks you for listening with a free concert with RCA recording artist and American Idol’s Danny Gokey, Thursday, February 18th at 7:30pm at the Saddle Sore Saloon in Norco!

    Doors open at 6pm. The only way to get in to this free concert is to win tickets on K-FROG! And the winning begins this Saturday on K-FROG!

  38. All 600 people at one location for a party? I just bought my ticket. I wasn’t going to when the only thing left was seperate party. I will bring my camera and take pics and send them along if they are any good.

    I look forward to seeing all of you MJ’ers there. :)

  39. Probably not any breaking news that we don’t already know about. The last time, the breaking news was about the Grammy’s and we all knew about it for a week before the news broke. The breaking news is probably that he will be at the fashion thingy-since we’ve known about it for days.

  40. Maybe the big announement is about the FS concert, which is almost sold out. I’m glad I got my tickets early. Also looking forward to seeing MJ’ers at the party :)

  41. All 600 people at one location for a party? I just bought my ticket. I wasn’t going to when the only thing left was seperate party. I will bring my camera and take pics and send them along if they are any good.

    OHHHHHHHHHHH…..It sounds like a wonderful party. I am so jealous.

  42. The breaking news is probably that he will be at the fashion thingy-since we’ve known about it for days.

    But he’s just attending! He’s not doing anything- so what would be breaking news about it? At least the grammy thing was a gig, he actually had to interview people and rate their outfits…

    I hope it’s something interesting!

    And cool about the VH1 concert! So that’s what he was talking about the other day when he mentioned accoustic arrangements!
    Someone yesterday- I think it was girlygirl (apologize if I’m wrong) who said she had really liked when they did those unplugged gigs on MTV- and I completely agreed! So here it is again- and this time on VH1! Yay!!!

    So we have at least four Adam performances to look forward to this month:
    1. AOL sessions
    2. Kradison concert
    3. VH1 accoustic concert
    4. Fantasy Springs casino concert!

    Oh yeah- Adam definitely isn’t about the music… what a poser!!! :-)

  43. Looks like Vh-1 is taping an acoustic concert for Adam Saturday.
    http://bit.ly/aeVeL9

    This is so cool! I can’t wait to see that. He’s going to have a busy time in NY performing this weekend it seems. Wonder if that means he’ll have earned that going to a fashion show now?

    But seriously, that is very cool, and lots of people will get to see acoustic Adam all at once. Way to go.

    I’m starting to believe you’re right! It’s cool any which way…
    I really am stoked for so many Adam performances in the next few weeks- especially since he has the knack for always changing things up a bit! So no performance sounds like the other…

    And happy birthday luv!

  45. Happy Birthday luvadamlambert. Is it today? My daughter’s is today too, she’s 18 now. I feel so old… But not old enough to feel soooo good about all the great Adam news. Idols in general are having a good week.

  46. saga, have you ever watched the old MTV unplugged sessions? Storytellers is the VH1 version. Usually 30 minutes, acoustic, and the artist talks a little about the song before singing.

    He better do “Broken Open” :)

  47. Yeah I know MTV unplugged. Mariah’s breakthrough sort of. And Lauryn Hills was good.

  48. i just saw that vh1 storytellers not too long ago with john mayer…awesome!

    ps anyone see perez and mayer’s fight today? hilar!

  49. Why all the secrecy re adams acoustic set for vh1 (which I assume is probably storytellers). When katy perry and john mayer did theirs, they were tweeting up a storm about it beforehand

  50. Chicagolaw
    02/10/2010 at 3:39 pm
    Rumor is that the VH1 thing is Storytellers.

    I love those! I just watched the one that featured John Mayer. He is very insightful and articulate and it made for an excellent show. I’m sure Adam’s will be just as interesting.

  51. i just saw that vh1 storytellers not too long ago with john mayer…awesome!

    ps anyone see perez and mayer’s fight today? hilar!

    Heh, just read a few of Perez posts…

  52. I just visited the VH1 storyteller site. Very cool! I viewed the one with David Bowie. He did “Life on Mars”. It was interesting to compare to Adam’s touring performance. I’m pretty sure that this is the big news on Extra. When I Googled VH1,Gotham casting, Adam Lambert the Extra news was first on the Google search and source was Gotham casting. I really hope that this is what Adam is doing. It will be a perfect setting for his vocals and his personality. I want SNL too!

  53. Isn’t that Storytellers show more for singer-songwriters? (With the ‘story’ part relating to the songwriting part.) That’s what I always assumed anyway, but must admit haven’t watched it for some time.

  54. Chicagolaw
    02/10/2010 at 3:39 pm
    “Rumor is that the VH1 thing is Storytellers”

    I saw John Mayer’s Storyteller’s show, and it was great. I hope this is true, it’s going to be great hearing Adam’s acoustic versions of his songs. I hope he sings Broken Open and Aftermath, love both of these so much.

  55. Can someone tell a little about Storytellers? Someone said they sometimes make a DVD of these sessions?

    Storytellers is a television music series produced by the VH1 network.

    In each episode artists perform in front of a (mostly small and intimate) live audience, and tell stories about their music, writing experiences and memories, somewhat similar to MTV Unplugged. The show started in 1996 with a broadcast of Ray Davies, during his “Storyteller” tour, and took its name from this first show.

    Over 70 episodes have aired, and many of the performances have subsequently been released on CD or DVD. “Best of” collections have also been released.

  56. I thought it was pretty common knowledge that she does, I’m sure it comes as no surprise to her label at this point.

    Heh, yeah, that was no shock to me. I don’t think her beef with her label is any sort of secret.

  57. RT @ainow: AUDIO: Exclusive Interview With David Archuleta on Sophomore Album & Memoir –> http://bit.ly/b4LxVX

    mainly talks about the album and writing process and who he’d like to collaborate with. also touches briefly on the book he is doing.

  59. Thnx will:)

    happy early bday melicert :)

    I was dissapointed with one of my bday presents so my parents are like ” well what do u want” and I said Adam poster but they’re like “not in this household” and then basically said he was too gay :( very irritatainh..

  60. Carrie answers questions from fans about her tour, her routine, what her favorite song that she’s cowritten is, and other stuff in this video sponsored by vitaminwater.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5aW9dbB6v4

    She mentions her tour will have production elements that she’s never had before, with more moving pieces and some surprise stuff that’ll put her closer to the audience than she’s ever been.

    Also I love how when talking about Temporary Home she comes *this* close to claiming credit for it because it’s the song that’s more her baby than any other one she’s cowritten but then she makes extra sure to be clear that it couldn’t have happened without her cowriters Luke Laird and Zac Maloy. Most singers in the same kind of cowriting situation aren’t as generous.

  61. Hillarious article at MTV about Kara last night comparing the Garcia guy to Adam:

    DavidArchie: @davidfan4ever Oh haha when I said spring I meant a single, not an entire album. That’d be overwhelming!

    A single will be just fine by me. It will be great to hear David on the radio again and to get a new music video. He might even get to perform his new single on the AI stage to promote it.

  67. From Perez:

    OMG!

    Kelly Clarkson better watch her mouth!

    In the middle of her concert at the Manchester Apollo the other night, the American Idol alum declared, “I love soulful music and i don’t always get to record it because i work with a bunch of suits.”

    Fingers crossed for Kelly that none of those “suits” were in the audience!

    She followed up her declaration by quietly singing “Two-more-records!” to the crowd.

    The suits could make those last two records a living hell if you’re not careful, Kel!

    Well the business people are commonly referred to as “suits” in show biz, it’s an old phrase. I like that Kelly said “two-more-records” which indicates that she’s going to leave rca after her contract is fulfilled and do her own thing. Which I am looking forward to.

    She’s made some good music with RCA, and I wasn’t crazy about My December, but I think they are still skewing her too pop and not letting her do enough of what she wants to do. There should be a happy medium between “pop princess” and “angry depressed metal princess” like My December was. I think if they gave her more leeway she wouldn’t be so mad at them. She’s got the talent and success to be honest with them. If she finds another label I look forward to some great soulful music, hopefully. I think she learned something from My December too.

    Kelly bashing her label?

    LOL. That’s pretty mild for Kelly.

    and from my perspective so mild I didn’t think it was even a bashing of any kind just her viewpoint but again I follow Kelly pretty well and so this to me would not phase me at all compared to what she has been vocal about. Hell she fired her guitar player right on stage and was not shy about it. :-)
