Michael Sarver: The End-Of-Tour Interview

There is perhaps no Idol in this season’s top 10 that’s given as much of himself to the fans as Michael Sarver. Whether it’s the “Twitter parties” he hosts in which he answers random questions from fans, or his impeccable attendance of pre- and after-show meet-and-greets, Michael really puts himself out there and never fails to show his love and appreciation for the people who spent hours on the phone voting him into the American Idol top 10.

Scott MacIntyre: The End-Of-Tour Interview

When Scott MacIntyre competed on American Idol this year, some detractors claimed that he’d only made it so far on the show because of his blindness, which lent him a sympathetic (read: ratings-garnering) back story and a “gimmick.” I admit such cynical thoughts even crossed my own mind. But it turns out Scott was not at all angling for the sympathy vote. His back story was in fact was more complicated than most viewers ever realized, but because he hoped to be judged on his musicality alone, he kept mum about his difficult past.

Making Noise, Joyful or Otherwise

A diva doesn’t bow out gracefully, or quietly, which is why Paula Abdul, weeks after detaching herself from ‘American Idol, ‘  found herself on a stage in Brooklyn, holding a series of microphones in the general area of her face, lip-synching a four-song medley of her two-decades-old hits.

It took gumption to do that, knowing full well that everyone who was to take the stage in the next two hours would be a vocal titan. (Well, almost everyone.) But above all, a diva makes a scene.

Theatre Review: The Color Purple

I remember reading some time ago that Barbara Cook, the venerable Broadway and concert singer, had attended the musical ‘The Color Purple’  on Broadway and was so moved by Fantasia’s performance as Celie that she saw the show twice. I now know why. For it is this young woman’s performance that transforms an excellent show into a truly compelling, not-to-be-missed event. The Theater of the Stars is presenting the show at the Fox through September 27.

Jennifer Hudson: Back Out in the Big Apple

Enjoying the pre-fall weather of the East Coast, Jennifer Hudson was spotted out and about in New York City this morning (September 18).

Joined by her husband, wrestler David Otunga, the ‘American Idol’  alum looked a bit tuckered out as she left her Manhattan hotel sporting a grey v-neck top and black trousers.

Paula Abdul as ‘VH1: Divas’ host: Don’t quit your day job! (Oh wait…)

I’d have tuned in to VH1: Divas last night just for that show-closing Kelly Clarkson-Melissa Etheridge duet, but I was also curious to see how Paula Abdul would fare in her first high-profile gig since officially exiting American Idol. And, well, if I were in the role of ‘nurturing judge’  right now, I guess I’d have to put it this way: ‘Paula, you looked beautiful last night. And Liza Minnelli was right: Your shoes were sensational.’  Sad to say, however, I can’t say the same for the portions of the telecast where sound was coming out of Paula’s mouth, as each uncomfortable between-performance bit seemed to paint the ‘Promise of a New Day’  singer as a doddering buffoon.

Who Wants a Whitney & Jennifer Hudson Duet?

And speaking of favorite singers, Ne-Yo says he may be executive producing Jennifer Hudson’s next album. “She said she wants this one to be a lot more personal, ” says Ne-Yo, who collaborated with J.Hud on her first solo single, “Spotlight.” “I’m pretty good at writing personal records’ ¦It starts with her idea and her thoughts.”

“She’s gone through a lot over the last year, so she has a lot to talk about, ” he continues. “She’s definitely gotten stronger. The things that she’s gone through and for her to still be upbeat and happy, it’s amazing.”

We say it’s time for Houston and Hudson to hit the studio together, don’t you?

Spazzing out at VH1 Divas

Last night, every single woman I have ever lip-synced to in the shower was under one big tent. On a red carpet. In fancy dresses. And I wasn’t dreaming.

VH1 Divas, hosted by the loopier than ever Paula Abdul, is an event that celebrates the very best women in music. In attendance were Adele, Jordan Sparks, Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis and so many others.

I got some great stuff from the gals, including Adele filling me in on her new CD “being prepped in January of 2010” and “True Blood’s” Sam Trammel saying that next season he thinks his character “will find his shape shifter parents.” Here are a few zingers from last night’s red carpet that couldn’t make the video and photo gallery that should keep your eyes happy as well.

Jennifer Hudson Talks Baby Son: ‘He’s So Precious’

Jennifer Hudson tore herself away from her 1-month-old son to perform at ‘VH1 Divas’  on Thursday night, but baby Daniel David Otunga, named after his dad, was still on her mind.

‘It’s always hard, ‘  Jennifer told Access Hollywood of leaving her baby behind for the night. ‘I [have got to] get adjusted to it because, it’s like, I don’t [want to] ever leave him. He’s so precious.’ 

In fact, Jennifer has been so into being a new mom that she only just found out Ellen DeGeneres is filling the ‘American Idol’  judge’s chair, which was vacated this summer by ‘VH1 Divas’  host Paula Abdul.

‘I am just now hearing about that. I guess I’ve been tucked away with the baby because I was like, ‘Really?”  Jennifer said of her stunned reaction. ‘I love Ellen.’ 

Carrie Underwood Discusses High School & New Album

MUSKOGEE, OK– Three people are new members of the Oklahoma Music Hall of fame. They were inducted on Thursday night and include Carrie Underwood. She had a lot of interesting things to say about the induction, her high school and new album.

After seeing a video of her life from small town girl to country super star, Carrie Underwood told the Muskogee audience she’s an emotional person and the whole experience made her teary eyed. Before her concert, Underwood talked about everything from her new album to the Checotah Wildcats.

“I know they had a good year last year and took down some Ironheads, ” said Carrie Underwood.

Concert review: Carrie Underwood credits, rocks Oklahoma in Hall of Fame show

MUSKOGEE — Carrie Underwood was in her element and in the biggest venue within a 30-minute radius of her hometown, Checotah. As the most successful champion in the history of “American Idol” and the proud owner of the best commercial track record of any country artist in the past five years, her induction Thursday into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame was always a near-certainty. But her total investment in delivering a great show indicated that nothing was being taken for granted. She was, after all, nearly a half-century younger than the two other musicians, Rocky Frisco and Ramona Reed, who were honored that night. So, in front of 3, 500 fans assembled in the Muskogee Civic Center, Underwood proved why she was worthy of the honor.

Also inducted into the state Music Hall of Fame Thursday were Rocky Frisco, a longtime J.J. Cale keyboardist, and Western swing yodeler Ramona Reed. C.H. Parker, longtime music instructor and director at Northeastern State University in Tahlequah, received the Governor’s Award.

Katharine McPhee Dishes On Going Blonde

It’s been over a month since Katharine McPhee gave PEOPLE an exclusive sneak peek at her new platinum look on her album cover. Yet she still managed to wait until Fashion Week to reveal the look on the red carpet. Katharine spoke with PEOPLE backstage at the Tommy Hilfiger show in Manhattan’s Bryant Park tents about what prompted her to trade her signature sexy brunette style for being a blonde-bobbed bombshell. ‘I have a record coming out in January called Unbroken, ‘  she explains, ‘and I’ve been working on it for the last year and it’s been a big artistic development. It sort of felt like I was shedding skin, so I was literally shedding layers of hair.

How much is that doggy? Simon Cowell eyes up a stray mutt on the red carpet

Big-hearted Simon Cowell appeared enamoured with a new friend at a charity event in London last night.

The jet-setting X Factor judge, 50, arrived with date Sinitta, 40, and as they posed up, he seemed to be quite taken with a black and white mutt that was also walking the red carpet.

And for the millionaire mogul, money is certainly no object, just maybe the issue of whether he would be around the walk the dog.

The pair were out at the Collars And Cuffs Ball, a fundraiser for Battersea Dogs’ Home at the Royal Opera House in London.

  1. I loved the MTV clip about Jason. Is he or isn’t he? I know VFTW has a picture of him blowing smoke, but that could have very well been a hooka. I don’t know why he would keep denying it? It’s not like it would stop his demo target from buying records.

    As for the AGT article. At least Kevin Skinner has a million dollars. I think that will be the extent of his career though. i wish they would do away with that show already. America does have talent, but whoever is voting on those contestants, or even picking them to be on the show, sure the hell don’t have taste.

  6. At least, BB looks happy. Adam should rest his voice this weekend because I am sure he will start recording on Monday.

  7. I posted in the other thread about Matt G, but I’ll repeat a jazz album by him would be awesome. I don’t feel him as a pop, rock or even R&B artist. Bluesy and Jazz would be awesome coming from him.

  8. Okay, I stand corrected. I said on the headlines thread I didn’t think it was a leather jacket. Wrong. Twink tank still kills me though. And that demure pose of Drake’s? Hee.

  10. Great pictures of Adam and Drake. They look good together. The main thing is that Adam looks soooo happy with Drake.
    Lucky bastard.

  11. Here’s video of the ever-talented David Cook playing drums for his opening act, Phil Marshall, last night at the York Fair. (Andy Skib and Monty Anderson from Dave’s band also joined Phil on-stage for the song). This was Cook’s 121st show on his marathon tour. He’s mentioned in interviews that he’s been practicing on drums and piano, so I guess this was his big public debut. He’s concentrating hard, but sure looks like he’s having a blast!

  12. Those pics of Adam and Drake are too darn cute. Adam looks SO happy!

  13. Adam Lambert and Drake LaBry: Funhouse Date Night

    Oh for fucks sake, what is up with those damn tank tops!

  14. Drake and Adam see like a cool couple and they obviously make each other happy. But what is with the “twink tank”? I don’t understand that at all as a usual wardrobe choice for anyone.

  15. Re-Adam and Drake. Does Drake look taller, or is it just the perspective of how they are walking? I always thought he was much shorter than Adam. He actually looks better here than other times and his eyes are really beautiful. Adam is all smiles.

    Adam Lambert and Drake LaBry: Funhouse Date Night

    Oh for fucks sake, what is up with those damn tank tops!

    Can’t hate on the tanks because I have two draws full, but I dress them up with cute sweaters or button down shirts. I don’t mind the tanks, I can’t stand his tattoo. Other than that I think he looks nice and they both look very happy.

  17. Is there anything amazing on iTunes that’s a must-buy???!!!!

    me and my mom have this thing where if I do something (a chore or something) I get songs.I have 26 frm last yr that I can use whenever I want.I’m saving them 4 kradison .any really cool music though??!!!:)

    checking out muse now…..

  18. Maybe Drake dresses that way because Adam thinks it’s sexy. Ok ladies. Been there. Done that. Different strokes. Hmm. hehe.

  19. Drake, are those snakeskin boots going to disintegrate before you get new shoes?

    Adam did the same thing with his. When he was at the CBS early show, I saw that they actually had separated from the sole in one spot. Years ago, when I used to walk to school three miles barefoot in the snow, we used to have shoemakers for repairs.

  20. Here’s video of the ever-talented David Cook playing drums for his opening act,

    Ahhh, that’s soooo cool! Thanks a lot for the video. I don’t know how he has the time to learn that, but keep playing Cookie, keep training cause I love me some drums.
    LOL He seems into it. Also cute that he’s wearing his friend’s shirt.

    This Cleveland site has a bunch of pictures from his show there and a review…

    You know you’ve seen a good concert when you’re ears are still ringing and you’re still ‘tasting every moment’  (sorry, we just couldn’t resist the reference from David Cook’s first single) the morning after.
    Thursday night was a mad house to say the least for the sold out David Cook show at the House of Blues.
    The former American Idol champ sang his signature hits like ‘Come Back to Me’  and ‘Light On,’  and even threw in some covers too. If you ever doubted his reign over season seven of ‘Idol,’  go see his show. You’ll see why America chose him.

  21. They do look really happy! Drake’s clothes make me cringe though ‘ ¦ but I have to admire that Adam doesn’t seem to care.

    Well he should because if Drake is going to be seen out and about with him, how he dresses and looks reflects on Adam. Adam dresses so well and Drake looks like a ragamuffin next to him. I cringe thinking about the tank shirt on the red carpet somewhere.

  22. Here’s video of the ever-talented David Cook playing drums for his opening act, Phil Marshall, last night at the York Fair.

    Wow that was pretty good. Can’t wait to see him on the piano next.

  23. Is it wrong of me that I couldn’t even click on the video of Scott’s interview? Something about him is just off-putting to me, can’t put my finger on it. He seems so self-interested perhaps?

    Re: Drake’s tank tops- I think there’s a time and a place for them, but he does seem to overdo it. My theory is that Adam likes them, otherwise I can’t imagine he would wear them so often. In lots of old Drake photos he’s wearing regular shirts (and looks really cute in them too). Maybe cold weather will put an end to the issue for a while. I’d love to see him dressed less casually for a change too.

  24. seems like a slow day today-good because I’ve g2g now.bye:(hope nothing EPIC!!! happens

    only 65 days ………

    btw does anyone have an idea of when llwd will be on iTunes!!!???

  25. Loved the clip of David Cook playing the drums! Thanks to all you Cook fans for showing me how amazing this guy is. I just watched him casually on S7 and all I remember hearing about him afterwards (wasn’t following AI online then) was that these crazy women were stalking him. Glad to see he’s growing his career and receiving such good reviews.

  26. I don’t think we can discount the possibility that Adam simply likes to be able to look at Drake’s arms. I know I do, and I don’t even know the guy.

    And maybe it’s my contrary nature, but after months of Idol fans blogging, commenting, facebooking and no doubt tweeting him that his twink tanks are Worse Than Cancer and must all be burned and the earth salted around them, he’s gotta be aware. I kinda like that he doesn’t let the internet push him around.

    I think I’m now rooting for the tank tops, the twinkier the better.

    Years ago, when I used to walk to school three miles barefoot in the snow, we used to have shoemakers for repairs.

    Uphill both ways. You can’t forget that part. It’s important. Say it with me. Uphill. Both ways.

    Actually, I just read an article recently about the demise of the shoe repair shop. We ungrateful minions buy super cheap shoes and just toss them when they break. But Adam — he should have access to this rarest of craftsman now. Just maybe not the time to get to one.

    And there are so many reasons this ain’t never gonna happen that it’s not even funny…but lord save me from dating a celebrity. I’m neurotically self-conscious as it is. I wouldn’t make it a day. ;)

    Unfortunately they live in LA — and it doesn’t get that cold!! LOL!

    Maybe all the OTT Adam fans should send Drake clothes. (Just kidding!!)

  29. Great interview with Michael Saver by Lyndsay. He says in the interview that he has grown as an individual through his experience on the tour and with the other idols. I can say my appreciation for him has grown exponentially with his growth. I really like this guy now and if he does come out with a record I will seriously consider buying it.

  30. We say it’s time for Houston and Hudson to hit the studio together, don’t you?

    No f-ing way. I think it is time to admit that Houston has shot her voice and so she can move on and write a book.

    ETA:
    Anyone have anymore gossip on Michael and a recording contract.

  31. Q3 don’t give them any ideas;)

    I think drake’s tank tops are okayyyyy

  32. Well he should because if Drake is going to be seen out and about with him, how he dresses and looks reflects on Adam. Adam dresses so well and Drake looks like a ragamuffin next to him. I cringe thinking about the tank shirt on the red carpet somewhere.

    I think he may put a nice nice designer jacket over it for the red carpet walks.

    Agreed. Jennifer, stay far, far away from Whitney. What happened to Whitney was beyond tragic, but Jennifer is so wonderfully talented I only want to see her moving forward.

    Can I just say how proud I was of the Idol girls on the Divas show? One good thing about Idol is that it brings forward people who can sing live. Thank God.

  35. Well he should because if Drake is going to be seen out and about with him, how he dresses and looks reflects on Adam. Adam dresses so well and Drake looks like a ragamuffin next to him. I cringe thinking about the tank shirt on the red carpet somewhere.

    I’m actually hoping Adam walks any red carpets on his own so the focus is on him and not who he is with.

  40. When I visited SF and LA, I was hot while all the natives wore sweaters and jackets… some even had gloves on in June.

  41. I’d be interested in a personal album from Jennifer Hudson/Ne-Yo. I haven’t purchased much of her music before, but I love her voice and that sounds cool.

    What a great review for Fantasia. I’m going to see if that show is coming anywhere near me. It sounds like a can’t miss.

  42. Ok, I have a little “thing” for drummers, and David Cook drumming has just made my life. And he’s pretty good! And he was concentrating sooooo hard! And he’s adorable! And, and…..

    Maybe I’m just dense, but can anyone translate “wak” and “how ya doin, i’m andy”?

  44. For whoever asked about the Kris Allen Boston concert today–I know a lot of Kris fans who are going, so there will be pics and vids.

    I agree about a jazzy/bluesy album for Matt G. I don’t know if a label will sign him to go in that direction, but I can totally see it.

  45. LOL..those pictures of Drake and Adam probably have the Kradamites going back and looking at the Good Morning America photos, clapping their hands and chanting “I still believe, I still believe”.

    I think they look cute together and anyone that can make Adam smile that much, I’m definitely a fan of.

    As far as red carpets, I hope Adam would walk it with whoever he’s dating as long as he wants to. All the other people walk with their significants, why shouldn’t he?

  46. The 27-year-old ‘American Idol’  runner-up and his interior designer boyfriend smiled it up for paparazzi after checking out the latest stop on Pink’s ‘Funhouse’  tour.

    It looks like they are having a great time. I guess no backstage meet and greet with PINK? Too bad.

    Drake and Adam look great! I hope Drake can get his name out there for his interior design biz. If he his waiting tables in West Hollywood, it sounds like his biz hasn’t taken off yet. I think he needs to dress sharper to give an impression of what kind of interior designer he is. Right now, he has got the spotlight because of Adam. He should try and monopolize on it in regards to his style. I don’t follow him, so maybe he is already doing so, but if he hasn’t, he should put some of his work on his twitter background page. Just my little old opinion.

  47. Maybe I’m just dense, but can anyone translate ‘wak’  and ‘how ya doin, i’m andy’ ?

    ‘wak’ is slang and I take it to mean crazy or f@$ked up depending on how it’s used. I don’t get the ‘andy’ remark.

  48. Thanks for posting the video of David Cook playing drums, LadyMadonna! Maybe by the time he tours for the next album he’ll be one of those musicians who runs from instrument to instrument over the course of a show, LOL. Acoustic guitar, electric guitar, piano, drums… Guess we can’t hope for any ukulele though. ;0)

  49. As far as red carpets, I hope Adam would walk it with whoever he’s dating as long as he wants to. All the other people walk with their significants, why shouldn’t he?

    Many walk the carpet alone so the focus is on them. Adam will do what he will do but I just think that, especially so early in his career, the focus would swing to who he’s dating rather than himself if he walks the carpet with someone. I’d rather hear him being asked about what designer he’s wearing or what his new project is than who the guy is with him. Whatever…..it is what it is! I don’t care for Drake but it’s not me that matters.

  50. Right now, he has got the spotlight because of Adam. He should try and monopolize on it in regards to his style

    …and that’s what I’m afraid he’s going to do. If he is a good designer he should be successful on his own merits, not because he is dating an up and coming celebrity who has worked very hard to get where he is.

  51. As far as red carpets, I hope Adam would walk it with whoever he’s dating as long as he wants to. All the other people walk with their significants, why shouldn’t he?

    I agree.

  52. ‘ ¦and that’s what I’m afraid he’s going to do. If he is a good designer he should be successful on his own merits, not because he is dating an up and coming celebrity who has worked very hard to get where he is.

    In todays world use whatever you can to get the business it’s his work that would keep the business and help him get more.

  53. Oh GOD I think I just ploded. DC tweeted Chris D.

    Chris tweeted this:

    @CHRIS_Daughtry For the past 2 days I’ve been completely sucked in to Batman: Arkham Asylum…why is this game so addicting?

    DC tweeted him back:

    @thedavidcook@CHRIS_Daughtry – just finished it. it goes on FOREVER! enjoy

    *squishes my rocker boys*

  54. I hate those twink tanks on Drake, like BVoU hate them. They’re unattractive and pairing them with some lame suspenders and crappy boots? Excellent choice there! Only not. And he needs to lose the pornstache and dude, get some other hair products so he doesn’t look like he hasn’t washed in days. Oh and did I mention I really hate those twink tanks?

    Other than that, it’s nice that Adam looks so happy and that he is going out to enjoy himself. Though funny that he just got off a gruelling 52 show tour, and indeed flew in from a last show, to LA and pretty much directly to this show.

    In other news, I’m looking forward to the Mazar/Maks pairing on DWTS. I don’t really like Maks, so I like when women bust his chops, I’m sure Debi will, and that’s good television. Not sure if she can dance, but who cares about that?

  55. Awww, I’m not afraid for Adam. He seems like a smart guy, he has tons of loyal friends. Adam’s ex is one of the most out-there, exhibitionist guys there is, yet he has remained extremely loyal to Adam. I’m sure he could have told/sold pictures, stories, etc regarding his time with Adam and he never has. His friends could have capitalized on pictures/stories and I don’t see that they have either. I don’t think that all of a sudden Adam’s judgement about people could be completely gone. Drake has apparently been friends or more with Adam for a long time, before Idol, so obviously there’s something there.

    If he makes Adam happy, which by those pictures it looks like he does, more power to him.

    ETA: I don’t like the tanks either, but whatever. I also think Cheeks is much more attractive than Drake, but whatever.

    I like the comment someone made on ONTD_AI regarding the two of them:

    “Looking at those pictures, it’s impossible to tell what the weather is like in L.A.”

    That’s what I thought…

  56. Adam is already back to work!

    I understand your concern, but I think they were dating before Adam became the star of Idol so I think I’ll give Drake the benefit of the doubt. I guess I feel that the more Drake is successful and financially indepedent in his own right, the better things will be for their friendship/relationship. I think it is tough for celebs to get involved with people who are not successful in their own careers, and I’m not getting the impression that Drake has found success yet. He is still very young, so that isn’t surprising, but if he can use his moment in the spotlight to move things along, that would be good for both of them, I think.

    Why would it be worse eating reindeer than any other kind of meat? I don’t get it. Normal deer is delicious, don’t recall if I’ve ever had reindeer though … (random post is random – I know)

    @CindyM: ITA, think Cheeks is prettier than Drake and do not like tank tops – actually I’d prefer it if Lambry were never photographed together – kinda ruins the pretty for me. But well, if he makes Adam happy then it’s all good. Best of luck to them.

    I had lamb for the first time a year and a half ago – a week later I became vegan….weird I know.

  65. Here’s video of the ever-talented David Cook playing drums for his opening act, Phil Marshall, last night at the York Fair.

    Awww, he looks so earnest — like he’s concentrating hard on not messing up. He’s no Kyle, but not bad Mr. Cook.

  66. I just looked up Rob C on Wikipedia and this was probably mentioned, but he’s working on an album with Meatloaf. I wonder if Adam will guest on that album?

  67. but I think they were dating before Adam became the star of Idol

    I’m not so sure about this. I know they knew ea other but don’t believe they started dating seriously until the show was underway.

    I heard rumors that Drake was with someone else until the show. Maybe, maybe not. Whenever Adam left the Idol premises, there were always pic’s or TMZ vids. No Drake reports till the end when Perez reported them together at an Idol dinner. Seems odd. And, yes, Drake lived in Louisiana, but you mean to tell me he didn’t show up until May, which was when that Olive Garden group dinner took place. It just doesn’t add up that he stayed away so long when you see how hot and heavy they are now. And how come Drake didn’t show up in the Idol audience (waving like a fool) until very close to the end of the season.

    I say that Drake was just a friend that Adam wound up hooking up with during the show.

  68. mj, still getting those weird pop-ups here when my firefox is set to prevent pop-ups.

  69. Awww, he looks so earnest ‘” like he’s concentrating hard on not messing up. He’s no Kyle, but not bad Mr. Cook.

    I thought it was adorable too, that earnest face :) . For those of you who like MWK or covers thereof, he did ‘Til I’m Blue last night at York and I was supposed to go and couldn’t and missed it. Noooo… love that song. Heh. Pity party.

  70. Here in Texas we call those tanks (a la Drake) “wife beaters” and the only guys who wear them are usually perched on the front porch of a double wide yellin’ at the old lady to bring them another beer….which is why I CRINGE when I see Drake decked out in one in public with Adam in tow. Makes me want to call the fashion police and demand an arrest.

  71. I just looked up Rob C on Wikipedia and this was probably mentioned, but he’s working on an album with Meatloaf. I wonder if Adam will guest on that album?

    Meatloaf has a short series of vid’s at YT that are about a minute long and very funny. He introduces someone and as soon as that person says hello, he ends the vid. Adam was in one of those vids with him at Cavallo’s home recording studio. David Cook is in an older one.

    I’ll be back with the link.

    Edit: here is the link –

  72. I had lamb for the first time a year and a half ago ‘“ a week later I became vegan’ ¦.weird I know.

    Weird indeed. I love lamb, and veal and generally any other kind of baby animal that I’ve tasted so far – guess there is no chance of me giving up meat and animal products voluntarily ;)

  73. Like I said earlier…

    Adam/Happiness – My ship of choice. He certainly looks happy in pictures with Drake, so more power to him.

  74. I remember reading that Adam and Drake met when Adam was in a club and Drake was a server and when Adam saw him he thought “That guy is just my type” and made a b-line to meet him. So obviously beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    As far as those pictures go, they just look like two guys walking out of a concert smiling for the camera. Drake looks a little like he’s posing in most of the shots. He must weigh 98 pounds wet!

    As far as the wife beaters, to each his own. Drake is in no way shape or form a twink btw.

    I don’t thing Drake is attractive, however he has a HUGE nose. Well, we all know what that means! ;)

    sidewalkstory, you are pretty correct with your time line. From what I understand Drake has made extended visits here to L.A. for a couple of years and they met when Adam was handing out fliers for his club appearances and became friends.

    Drake is a small town cajun boy and still dresses like one.

  76. I don’t think Drake is attractive, however he has a HUGE nose.

    Maybe Adam could refer him to his doctor! Just Kidding…I”m on the side of the conversation that says Adam never had a nose job. But we did go in circles on that one…and ditto with the wife beater shirts. LOL!

  77. Why would it be worse eating reindeer than any other kind of meat? I don’t get it. Normal deer is delicious, don’t recall if I’ve ever had reindeer though ‘ ¦ (random post is random ‘“ I know)

    Actually raindeer meat is one of the better meats you can eat since it’s considered wild.

  78. I like the Rob Cavallo association with Adam:

    2009 collaborations:

    Paramore
    Shinedown
    Dave Matthews Band
    Meatloaf

    I like his past associations too:

    Green Day
    My Chemical Romance
    GooGoo Dolls
    David Cook
    Alanis Morrisette

    Of course he also worked with Paris Hilton, so who knows..LOL

  79. Did I miss an entire thread on “wife beaters?” Sorry if I opened old wounds or something. By the way, what is a twink? Missed that too. However, I think Drake is very good looking — just would like to see him lookin’ less like a porn star. Hey, if Adam likes him, I like him.

  80. In the gay vernacular a twink is a gay teenage boy or a guy who looks like a young teenage boy.

  81. Squirrily, I put the MeatLoaf w/Adam link as an edit to my post above. (The vid doesn’t make sense w/o an explanation.)

    Drake’s love of the tank top has been discussed before which opened up the topic of where the term “wife beater” came from. It took an ethnic origin turn, which some felt was sterotyping, but all was well that ended well.

    I too never heard of a TWINK before this website. I guess it is a gay man who is quite boyish looking. If Kris had less muscle mass, (and was gay) he would be considered a twink as would Archie (if he were gay).

  83. One good thing about Idol is that it brings forward people who can sing live. Thank God.

    Yes, and I’m sure Paula agrees with you.

  85. One attribute a twink has is a hairless face. By that I don’t mean he shaves but that he doesn’t need to shave, like a young boy.

    On that basis alone Drake doesn’t qualify for twinkdom.

  86. Monica (Courtney Cox) was called a twink (or twinkie) on Friends when she was dating the “older” guy (forgot his name). The father didn’t know and told Monica that he heard his friend was dating a twink. That was the first time I heard the expression.

  87. The Climb is a great song wasted on Miley Cyrus.

    Singing in general, is wasted on Miley.

    Rob Cavello is a good association, as far as I’m concerned. Of course everyone has their song or projects that don’t work out, he’s done a lot of work I like, so fingers crossed. Adam was up early! he Tweeted that at what, 8-9? here on the Left Coast and he went yesterday from Detroit, performing there, across country, took in a show that ended at 11pm and who knows what time he ended up going to sleep. Good for him for working hard, but hopefully he doesn’t push his voice too much.

  88. OK, thanks all for the explanations. Never heard ‘Twink’ before. Also, the term for the tank refers only to the tank itself, not the guy (at least these days) but I won’t kick that dead horse any more. :-)

  89. Danny channeling Scott

    Singing in general, is wasted on Miley.

    LOL !

  90. Wasn’t Brian May over at Rob Cavello’s house looking at stars or some such when he heard the 2012 soundtrack and made all of those fangirly comments about Adam? Or maybe I am “misremembering” ….

  91. I’m actually hoping Adam walks any red carpets on his own so the focus is on him and not who he is with.

    Finally, I totally agree with you, Clearone

    I have to agree with this. I suspect that will be the case…or he will bring his mother, who deserves to be there as she has been so supportive of his career all these years. She and Adam’s dad deserve to share in some big moments with him as they have stood by him always.

  94. or he will bring his mother, who deserves to be there as she has been so supportive of his career all these years. She and Adam’s dad deserve to share in some big moments with him as they have stood by him always.

    That’s true, but he can thank them in the acceptance speech. Adam should attend the awards like everyone else does with his significant other if he chooses.

    26 minutes ago from Echofon

  96. Back to the Drake/Adam discussion, I recall in one of the gazillion interviews that he was asked about being in a “relationship” and he said no. Then he clarified and said he was “dating” someone. That kind of struck me as saying that there was nothing serious in his life. This interview was maybe a month or so ago….maybe it was Lyndsey’s interview. Maybe things have evolved more now but I’m thinking he will walk the red carpet alone. Do we have Adam walking the red carpet already?

  97. Rob Cavallo produced “Time For Miracles.” So I guess Adam’s recording a new song with him for his own album?

  98. Do we have Adam walking the red carpet already?

    Well, I imagine he’ll at least walk the carpet at the premiere of the movie 2012, since he sang the featured song for it. Unless you’re considering red carpet is only for award shows?

  99. OK, true. Yes, I was thinking awards show…but I do believe we will see him on the red carpet many times…. I believe. I believe.

  100. Do we have Adam walking the red carpet already?

    It’s given…don’t know for what but he will be walking the red carpet a few times.

  101. Then he clarified and said he was ‘dating’  someone.

    He was already hot and heavy w/Drake by that time and said the statement was to protect others.

    I still do not believe that Adam was dating Drake till mid-show as per my post above at 1:25p

  102. In other news, I’m looking forward to the Mazar/Maks pairing on DWTS. I don’t really like Maks, so I like when women bust his chops, I’m sure Debi will, and that’s good television. Not sure if she can dance, but who cares about that?

    I agree. But I do like Maks, lol. I think a lot of his shtick is just a put-on. His best partner, imo, was Mel B., ’cause she could really dish it out while still keeping it humorous. I honestly think Maks fell a little bit in love with her, and if circumstances were different–who knows? To me, they were a much more convincing couple than Maks and Karina–couldn’t see that working out at all. And I guess it didn’t.

  103. Adam can date whomever he wants, but Drake almost always ruins an Adam picture. He just looks so sleazy, skanky, oily, etc. If Adam shines from within, then whatever is shining from inside of Draake ain’t pleasant. I hope he is a great guy, but he takes bad pictures and he dresses horribly.

    If Adam likes him dressed like that, then Drake should only do it at home. It does not reflect well on Adam or Drake.

  104. That’s true, but he can thank them in the acceptance speech. Adam should attend the awards like everyone else does with his significant other if he chooses.

    I recall lots of celebs bringing their parents to awards show. Yes, he could thank his parents in a speech, but it’s not the same as them being there. Whoever he brings is fine, but I wouldn’t be surprised if his mom at least gets to go to one event.

  105. but I wouldn’t be surprised if his mom at least gets to go to one event.

    Wouldn’t surprise me either.

  106. or he will bring his mother, who deserves to be there as she has been so supportive of his career all these years. She and Adam’s dad deserve to share in some big moments with him as they have stood by him always.

    That’s true, but he can thank them in the acceptance speech. Adam should attend the awards like everyone else does with his significant other if he chooses.

    Not everyone attends with their significant other. Many have taken a parent or sibling with them. Personally I think his it’s a nice thing to do to thank those people for being there for them their entire lives and not for just a few months.

    There will probably be a red carpet for 2012. I would fully expect Adam to be attending the AMA’s which are in November are they not?

    Geez Adam, take care of yourself! He still didn’t sound 100 percent yesterday in Detroit, flew back to LA, went out to a concert then to work at 8:00 a.m. ?!

  107. Adam can date whomever he wants, but Drake almost always ruins an Adam picture. He just looks so sleazy, skanky, oily, etc. If Adam shines from within, then whatever is shining from inside of Draake ain’t pleasant. I hope he is a great guy, but he takes bad pictures and he dresses horribly.

  116. I have to admit, a lot of the criticism Drake receives from certain fans makes me more than a little uncomfortable. It really isn’t our business to approve of or disapprove of who Adam Lambert dates.

    And just because he wears a tank-top to a rock concert (I didn’t know they had such a strict dress code, personally) hardly means that the man can’t or wouldn’t be able to dress for the red carpet should the opportunity arise.

    I totally agree with you! And Adam should walk the red carpet ALONE; focus should only be on him and if he is with Drake, it definitely won’t be! His parents with him – OK; but NOT Drake. Drake may be a great guy and it’s obvious Adam is crazy about him, but there’s a time and a place to show off Drake (like the Pink concert) and a red carpet event is not it!!

  120. Does Kris have a radio interview or performance today? Any pic or video?

  122. Kris needs to get a contract with a plaid shirt manufacturer right now!!! He’s wearing my favorite one in that twitpic, and I don’t even like plaid. It looks right on him, though, and i like the blue and red.

    http://twitpic.com/icg1x

  123. I am so happy to hear he is doing “Falling Slowly” now that he’s off the tour. Lovelovelove that song and his performance of it. The Ford Day perf was sublime. And his MITM there was awesome, too. Changed up from when he did it on Idol and even better. I hope he keeps those on the playlist when he starts touring. For which I cannot wait. Wheeee!!

  124. EmmaJK – Cookie twittered earlier today that he was in “hotel lobby, waiting to head to airport and fly to LA LA land. 3 days to operation hang with dublin” But apparently he’s sacrificing some of his rare time off with his dog to participate in this charity event. It’s good to be a Cook fan.

  125. He did disco night dance. And at least one person has his hole set on video.

  126. They said afterwards he got rushed away. I can’t wait for vids.

    Aww, he is wearing the shirt he wore on his birthday dinner. I can’t wait for vids either.

  128. For some reason I thought Kris’ radio party was later tonight. Can’t wait to see the videos — especially of him dancing! Glad that he’s getting to do a couple of the songs he wasn’t able to perform on tour. I guess he didn’t do his new single though, huh.

  129. I’m back! Hi!!! I hope there’s video if the kris thing…..

  130. The label must have told Kris he can’t play his new single until after it’s official debut Monday…

    threescompany_We asked him to play the new song and he said “don’t ask that!”

    threescompany_ @ontd_fluffy he asked who was going in the pool and I yelled YOU! He said “no, I am not. I have to get on a plane” @priscillaf videoed it – less than 5 seconds ago from TweetDeck in reply to ontd_fluffy

    Now see, Kris could have probably gotten a lot of new fans if he had shown up at this event in his swim trunks…JS…

    But I guess he was headed straight to NYC (or LA?) after this appearance

  131. Someone on twitter said they ask him to play his new song, and he told them not to ask that. They said he did some of the paula dance.

  132. Someone supposedly videotaped Kris’ whole set. Hopefully it will be posted soon…

    Even with private planes that would be a ton of travel in about 36 hours time. But would he fly from Boston to NY instead of simply drive? IDK…either way I’m pooped just thinking about Adam’s and Kris’ crazy schedules…

    wow!! like one comment said, it’s like a magazine photoshoot! very nice shot of him

  140. I can’t wait to see the videos of Kris’s set and interivew. So excited for him! His first non-AI tour gig. Excellent. Though sucks we didn’t get to hear the single. Not surprising, but still. But I guess I can fake patience and wait until Monday to hear it. Only two days away.

  141. idolfan4life_22 #I JUST MET KRIS ALLEN!!!!! ahhhhhhh thanks @krisallen4real you are incredible. i love you.#

  142. I guess when we get to see more pictures from Priscillaf were going to shit bricks. (quoting) twitter message.

  143. Someone on twitter said they ask him to play his new song, and he told them not to ask that.

    Boo! Oh well, Monday it is. **pouts**

  144. So epic. I don’t get how people say his bland. I just love Kris. So funny.

  145. wow!! like one comment said, it’s like a magazine photoshoot! very nice shot of him

    Since there seems to be a lack of official photos for Kris, maybe they can use that shot? LOL. Nice photo. I was hoping that he’d get to sing his new single today, but hope that it was a good set anyway. Look forward to seeing the videos.

  146. Kris’s dancing is rotflmfao !!!! That why I love him<3. LOL

  147. It’s goodthat kris’s set is the same as yesterday.less things to remember….

  148. Someone on twitter said they ask him to play his new song, and he told them not to ask that.

    Kiss New York is a Clear Channel station, while Mix 104.1 is owned by CBS. So yeah, no way Kris was performing his new single in Boston today…

  149. UNC had a game today and I reckon Anoop went.

    # I missed this http://twitpic.com/ic4u3

    I heard the game while on the bus- but no mention of Chapel Hill’s own, fresh out of the American Idols live tour, ANOOP DESAI! weird.

    and his friend saw Journey last night- met them backstage and showed them the Clef’s version of DSB. I wonder if Anoop went with him. I mean, it was his first night back, and it’s the same guy that picked him up at the airport.

  150. Tried to go check out Rickey’s article. Damn, his site always tries to download all kinds of shit onto my computer. Does anybody else have that problem???

  151. It looks like they are having a great time. I guess no backstage meet and greet with PINK? Too bad.

    from Butch Walker’s Blog (he tweeted that he was there last night):

    My friend played at Staples Center in LA last night (great fun was had by all), so afterwards we were all shuttled into a backstage Green Room where I would exchange words of wisdom with the likes of a Perez Hilton, an Adam Lambert (the cute, gay guy from Idol),

    Yep, its Adam!

    What makes you certain? I’m kinda on the fence. 1-Why would she tweet the picture to him if he’s there? If she had @drake too, I’d understand. 2-the chest/arm hair look too dark 3-Adam’s recording today and those sessions have been lasting a long time. That pic was taken this afternoon. 4-That picture looks familiar to me from some other time.

    But…the lips kinda look like Adam.

That pic was taken this afternoon. 4-That picture looks familiar to me from some other time.

    But’ ¦the lips kinda look like Adam.

    Ya the facial structure (that we can see) screams Adam but the rest doesn’t match.

  157. I think she was just sending the photo of Drake to Adam, just like folks do often on email or twitter. Don’t think it mattered qhether he was there or not. Height and jaw look like Adam to me do that’swhy I think it was him. Chest hair is often darker than overall body hair.

    There are other older shots of Drake beside her pool in her pic file but he has on another bathing suit. (She also has one from July of Adam and Drake which captures them staring into each other’s eyes as he visits backstage. Cute) None of the other (two -three) guys regularly featured on her pic file remotely looks like the person behind Drake in this photo.
    I won’t swear it is Adam, but I think so.

  158. That tweet DC sent to Chris D. this morning? Chris tweeted back omg LMAO!!

    @CHRIS_Daughtry I’m at the end now…on hard.

    I had forgot what the initial tweet was about, saw that and cracked up. The responses on Twitter are hilarious. Oh boys and their toys.

    David Cook will be attending the Shadow Buddies Benefit Dinner and Auction in Kansas City on Monday.

    I’m so glad he’s attending this. That site says there will be a red carpet so hopefully we’ll get some nice pics! Tony is a really good guy. I remember he was part of one of Oprah’s big charity shows. Really sweet and caring guy.

  159. Well, I don’t call those moobs myself. I think it’s partly the angle of the shot. The lower arm and wrist looks very familiar. The chin and lips also could be a match. It might be Adam, but it’s not conclusive imo.

    I would have thought his session lasted longer today unless it was just a preliminary session (it is Saturday after all.)

    We need a full time investigator to help us solve all the mysteries! :)

  160. Just seen on Twitter:
    @DJLisaFoxx: @thedavidcook David Cook TAKING OVER 104.3MYfm-LA ALL WEEK!! Guest hosting 7-8pm nightly http://www.1043myfm.com

    Thanks for the heads up, wellhesback!! They play his music often on this station.

  161. Adam can date whomever he wants, but Drake almost always ruins an Adam picture. He just looks so sleazy, skanky, oily, etc. If Adam shines from within, then whatever is shining from inside of Drake ain’t pleasant. I hope he is a great guy, but he takes bad pictures and he dresses horribly.

    This.

    And every photo I see of the two of them makes Adam seem (okay, don’t hate on me) ordinary. Drake is so extreme looking, sharp features, odd poses…makes Adam seem almost too wholesome by comparison. As much as I love to look at Adam, I find myself only seeing Drake in those pix. Odd. And an excellent reason to not walk a red carpet with him. Adam needs to be the visual center while he builds his career.

    Re the several comments about Adam being smitten with Drake, looking so happy together, etc. – huh? I don’t see smitten. I see Adam smiling for a camera. Whenever there is a camera in his face, even papparazi, there is a smile on that face. Adam may well be smitten, but we don’t have any objective evidence of that. A couple of twitters? Hardly definitive.

    I want happiness for Adam as much as anyone. If Drake is it, I am thrilled (and a little bit dubious, but whatever). But visually the pairing is jarring. And I can’t help thinking of the youtubes of Drake’s European trip. He sounded so inarticulate and, well, not too bright.

    Just my opinion. Worth what it is worth.

  162. I hope Adam is happy. But if it doesn’t work out with Drake, I wouldn’t mind seeing Adam with someone like Lance Bass. Lance was in the hottest bachelors issue of People magazine with Adam. He knows what it is like to be a sex symbol (N’SYNC was huge) and now he is into acting and producing. Also, I see Lance has having an inquistive mind, (wanting to go into space) and a good sense of humor..(his cameo in Tropic Thunder).

    If Adam and Drake live happily every after that is good too. Whatever floats Adam’s boat.


  163. David Archuleta was voted #1 on J-14’s favorite male singer poll.
    Adam Lambert was voted #5. Check out the magazine scan’ ¦
    tfKjKI/AAAAAAAARzc/MWYpDjR2cVQ/s1600-h/zj14favesinger.jpg

    David and Taylor make a cute couple. :)

  164. And every photo I see of the two of them makes Adam seem (okay, don’t hate on me) ordinary.

    I know what you mean. With all of Adam’s talk of energy transfer, Drake just seems like an energy drain. Something feels off. I have no right to even make these comments, I don’t know these people.

  165. Great interview with Michael Saver by Lyndsay. He says in the interview that he has grown as an individual through his experience on the tour and with the other idols. I can say my appreciation for him has grown exponentially with his growth. I really like this guy now and if he does come out with a record I will seriously consider buying it.

    Me, too. I wasn’t sure how genuine he was at the beginning of the Tour–he was trolling for tweeter followers, IMO–but I truly believe that the Idol experience has changed him for the (much) better, and that he has honestly connected with the fans who have done the same with him. If he puts out a decent country album, I will definitely buy it, and no way in hell would I have said that when Alexis was defeated Top 11 and he was still standing. I am glad he made the Tour (Scott, OTOH…), and would like to meet him someday.

  166. I agree suebrody. To me, there’s no one of those not signed that has done more to endear themselves to the public than Michael. I also doubted his sincerity for a bit, but his interaction with fans and others proved himself to me. Gotta admit, when he wrapped that orange boa around Adam’s neck during the last DSB, I melted a bit.

  167. I’d probably buy a Michael Sarver country album before I’d buy a Gokey country album. partly for reasons summed up by suebrody, above.

  168. That’s totally not Adam. Adam is squishy around the torso, but not that squishy. And not to get all creeper like, but Adam’s arms do not look like that. His arm hair is still very reddish-blond, though other parts of his hair are no longer that light. But no parts of his hair are as dark as that dude’s arm hair.

    That I know someone’s arm hair other than my own, just made me feel kind of sick inside.

    Not to mention that this chick is showing this picture to Adam to inform him of puppy and it’s name.

    Okay, I’m going to go lie down in a cool, dark room until I can feel even a false sense of having a life, come back.

    OOOOOOHH. This ends tonight doesn’t it?? Im really curious how the chat will work and if the rest of the Adam fans will ever get to know what transpired in the chat.

  174. Bored now with talk of Adam or not Adam, plaid shirts and ugly tanks, the ontd_ai kids have used their ninja skills for good, once again, and might have been able to suss out another possible song from Adam’s album. Tedder song?

    Interesting. Finally, something that may be relevant.
    “Biggest Regret”

  175. I’m a Michael convert, also- didn’t expect that to happen!
    I’m thinking it’s not Adam. Go look at the recently released RS photo which shows his upper right chest area, including his nipple. (I can’t believe I’m discussing this.) Anyway, there is no evidence of Moobs there. Plus, think about how much thinner he’s gotten since the RS shoot. The biggest give away were those boring ass swim trunks. You know Adam would have trunks with more style than those. (a little glitter, floatable handcuffs…something)

  176. the ontd_ai kids have used their ninja skills for good, once again, and might have been able to suss out another possible song from Adam’s album. Tedder song?

    Hmmm, Biggest Regret. Sounds like exactly the kind of song Adam said he wouldn’t have on his album. Didn’t he say no emo, only feel good?

  177. He did say he would have ballads. Also, they will have 20-24 songs to choose from.

  178. Hmmm, Biggest Regret. Sounds like exactly the kind of song Adam said he wouldn’t have on his album. Didn’t he say no emo, only feel good?

    He said he would also have emotional ballads. I think what Adam was talking about is the brand of whiny rock that seems to popular these days, with groups like Nickelback, Daugherty and yes, some sadly of Cook. That’s what I think he was referring to and to which I give a hearty “hear hear!” I think even some emo songs are less whiny than some of the whiner rock these days.

  179. ya the name ‘biggest regret’ sounds like something that doesn’t fit with his whole ~positivity~ thing he’s got going on. But who knows *shrug*

  180. Biggest Regret?
    Does sound emo. But I like emo Adam and was hoping he didn’t mean that about not including any on his album.
    Mad World…Come Home… I Can’t Make You Love Me… IICHY… TOMT….

    Emo, all… and beautiful.

  181. Biggest Regret…. All I can say is that the poster who tracked down those tweets etc is an amazing investigator (certainly vis a vis my internet-challenged ways). Way to go!

    And maybe it is a life-affirming song… like “live life to the fullest or else that will be your biggest regret” sort of thing.

    LOVE the speculation!

  182. ‘Biggest Regret’ 

    Wow, I’m amazed at the lengths that people are going through to track something like this down. Kind of fun to try to imagine what the sound would be like, and how Adam would sound doing something like a song titled “Biggest Regret”. Of course, this might be totally wrong, but it’s fun to make up.

    I’m a Michael convert, also- didn’t expect that to happen!

    Yeah, I agree. I think that Michael really did grow as an individual, and I respect him for that. I didn’t care initially if he might be successful or not, and now I really hope that he is.

  183. Have to chuckle about the speculation about the “maybe Adam / maybe not” in the pool photo with Drake and the amazing details we know about Adam’s body! and yes, how there is just a little bit of an ick factor here…just a smidgen…

    Ha ha, funny…and icky. I don’t think thats him, everyone was just saying how skinny he looked yesterday at the ford thing, I think his friends were having fun by the pool and decided to send him a picture to look at while he was hard at work in the studio.

    I prefer to think of it as we are just really good fans ;-) ….. who are only looking out for our “Idol” and doing our part to control..um I mean contain the Proverbial rumor bin….yeah that’s it!!!!!

  186. I have to agree, unless he magically gained 30 lbs. overnight it’s not Adam in that photo…

  187. LOL..it is funny. Not as funny as ONTD_AI where I think they have over 1500 posts on whether it’s Adam or not. The latest thing I saw was that someone magnified the picture and focused on the smidgen of pinky toe that is visible and it is not painted black, as Adam’s were very recently (flip flop sighting), therefore it cannot be Adam.

  192. I haven’t had a chance to read through the whole thread but I wanted to give a ‘shout out’ to Adam’s charity “Donorschoose.org”. It is at $174,272. Sorry if this has already been mentioned. I was hoping it would reach the $200,000 mark at the close of his fan sites contest tomorrow. I think it has a chance to do that! Everybodies generosity has helped so many school programs for kids. It’s an important and great charity.

  197. Watch it with the sound muted, their dances are just too adorable and the evolution of them is interesting :)

  198. OKay, if you folks don’t think its Adam I’ll reconsider, but I am not totally unconvinced. The facial resemblance is too close and the other things such as color of hair or chubbiness can be influenced visually by a host of other factors (angle, lighting, body posture, camera quality). But, having been away for a few hours I think its funny – but not surprising – that the is it or isn’t it question resulted in all the posts here and on ONTD.

  199. I showed my friend and I was like “That’s Adam’s BF. but… who is this??” and I scrolled up, and she said simply “that’s adam.”

    I think it is as well. Adam isn’t svelte by any means. You can tell when when he takes off his jacket when singing, and he’s got a bit of softness around the waist. He’s like, trying to lose weight, but it doesn’t seem like he’s trying to get fit. He should take some advice from Anoop. Anoop is naturally more elegant looking, but he used to be chubby.

    Ummm… guess I”d better go back and read some posts… hope I find the one that explains this one… :)

  203. Just joining in again for a few minutes. Maybe this has been discussed. I don’t seem to be able to open up any of the (maybe 20 or so) you tube videos that I have tried with Adam from the tour. Is anyone else having this problem? I never got around to saving them into Real Player or whatever. Now I really can’t sleep. I remember hearing that YT might do this, but did they?

    That was the scary rumor floating around, fed partially by the fact that something happened to MJ’s videos. But she confirmed later that the issue with her youtube channel had nothing to do with the Idol tour videos. I’m not saying they won’t do it, I wouldn’t put anything past them. But it doesn’t look like it’s happened yet. I just checked a couple of my bookmarked youtubes at random to test, and they seem fine. For example, here’s the TALC Bowie Medley from Manchester:

    Hope that helps.

  205. Thanks soverymel. That one did work for me. Would you mind trying the one titled Adam Lambert Performing a Bowie Medley in D.C.? That is one I could not get to open. The yt screen just stays black on that one and most of the others that I have checked.

    I had planned to put them on Real Play Monday or Tuesday. Hope I still have that opportunity.

  206. Thanks soverymel for checking your bookmarks for me. The one you linked did work for me, but some others still do not. The youtube screen is just black on them or they say an error occurred – try again.

    Guess there’s just something flukey going on with my laptop.

  207. Kris’ Twitter Party for anyone who missed it

    Alright thanks guys. Going to sleep now.

  208. They are, it’s definitely in the ‘we’re bored and need Adam news so let’s be hilarious’  vein. They are a great group over there, very funny.

    Ya those guys are awesome :)

  209. How much time is left in donor challenge? I wonder if they will reach 200,000?

  210. Just came across this photo with Adam and Kris last DSB with Anoop frame in middle. I guess you may have seen this, cute huh.
    They have tons of memories to share amongst them. Probably greatest summer they ever had.

    On the Donors Challenge, great going. Really great that so many kids are benefiting from this. Kudos to all Adam fans who supported this. Wow over $180 thousand donated, and over 69,000 students reached. Really great!

    You’re welcome! I tried the one you mentioned, and it worked for me. I’m afraid that it must be something on your end that’s gone wrong, sorry.
