Is Adam Lambert a Diva?
Anonymous sources tell gossip columnist, Courtney Hazlett, of MSNBC that during last week’s media tour, Adam was “rude to everyone ‘ from fans right down to the lighting folks.”
Well, some folks who have worked with Adam pre-Idol tell a different story.
Chris Isaacson and Shane Scheel the co-producers of West Hollywood’s famed Upright Cabaret couldn’t have been clearer when I interviewed them in March and April for a couple of New York Post stories I was writing on Adam.
I asked the “diva” question, point blank, and here’s what I got:
From Chris Isaacson:
…He incredibly talented, he a complete professional, he always knows his music and he always on time, and he a very nice soul, he a good person ¦you get no diva from him at all, he really wonderful.
And from Shane Scheel:
“He passionate about singing, he loves to sing. There are difficult people, and I always try to avoid them…We adore him, he one of our All-stars, and we cant wait to watch him go straight to the top.
“I think what I like about him is that he always been very collaborative and equally supportive of every single person there…He takes a genuine interest in other artists, he learns from them, works with them and collaborates with them. I think that a very important part of being an artist.
All the folks I interviewed who worked with Adam pre-Idol had nothing but glowing praise, not only for his talent, but also his sweet-natured and generous personality.
Unless the Idol experience changed him in some fundamental way? I’m not buying the diva stories.
