Photographer Robert Sebree has been taking a bunch of photos of Adam Lambert in his studio, and this Tudor-themed photo is the latest in the series. According to Adam, he enjoys playing dress up and you can totally see his flair for drama in these photos. Most of them have an awesome glam rock vibe that reminds me of my favorite movie of all time, Velvet Goldmine. Look under the cut for the colored version of the photo above, plus a few more photos by Robert Sebree.
Lately, fans have been pissy towards Adam Lambert for not attending the after-concert bus autograph and photo sessions. To make up for his absence, he decided to throw a Twitter party. For an entire hour, fans Twittered questions to his Twitter account, and Adam answered as many as he could through his iPhone. Faux News covered Adam’s Twitter party briefly but what they failed to add was that it was actually Michael Sarver who invented the first Idol Twitter party. Michael hosted the first one and many others after that.
Adam’s Twitter party put fans in a very good mood, and even answered questions about when his new single will come out.

And it turns out that he would do a collaboration with Katy Perry and Slash if he had the chance.
Adam Lambert may have revealed everything about his sexuality, but he’s very poker-faced when it comes to his professional debut. Well it turns out he’s working with Swedish-Morrocan producer RedOne, the man behind the pop phenomenon Lady Gaga and the person often credited for the recent comeback of glam rock. Lady Gaga is theatrical for sure but glam rock – maybe not?
In any case, E! News says that Adam Glambert spent last weekend holed up with RedOne in an LA recording studio. According to the busy producer in an interview with the LA Times, Adam Lambert will be taking a dance/pop direction with heavy rock influences.
“I want to go rock — David Bowie and Queen, but make it more easy for people to get,” the producer said of his vision for Lambert. “It has to be rock, but with an interesting dance angle to it, you know? You’ll like it.”
RedOne said he hopes to record at least six songs with Lambert, but that doesn’t guarantee that they’ll all make Lambert’s RCA debut (a Lambert representative was unable to be reached prior to posting). An “Idol” finalist comes equipped with a built-in fan base, and RedOne said he’s eager to play with people’s expectations.
“You know what I like about him? He’s fresh,” said RedOne. “You can go almost whatever direction with him. People know him from being on ‘American Idol,’ singing other people’s songs, but you can take him in a new direction, and this will be the first time you hear Adam Lambert with his signature. My goal is to get his signature out from him to the world.”
I’m so excited to hear what Adam’s post-Idol sound will be like!
The American Idol Season 8 Tour is going to kick off real soon and so far, we’ve already got a bunch of song spoilers. The first one is really obvious: since every Idol winner performs the winning Idol song, it’s probably safe to assume that Kris Allen will be singing “No Boundaries”. Here are the rest of our guesses:
So Adam Lambert did make it to the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine! I read the interview and I was pretty surprised at how candid and frank he was about his experiences and sexuality. Yes, he talks about his sexuality in this article, and for those of you who stubbornly refuse to believe that Adam Lambert is gay, there’s no better way to find out than from the horse’s mouth. Besides his sexuality, Adam said some things that will probably shock some of those who voted for him on the show, and I hope Adam wins more fans beyond his Idol core base, cos after the interview I’m not sure all of them will be sticking around. Here are a couple of quotes from the interview:
About discussing his sexuality, “Right after the finale, I almost started talking about it to the reporters, but I thought, ‘I’m going to wait for Rolling Stone, that will be cooler,’…I didn’t want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullshit. I need to be able to explain myself in context.”
On attention from women, “I loved it this season when the girls went crazy for me…As far as I’m concerned, it’s all hot…Just because I’m not sticking it in there doesn’t mean that I don’t find it beautiful”
Kris Allen is his type, “They put me with the cute guy. Distracting! He’s the one guy I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type — except that he has a wife. I mean he’s open-minded and liberal, but he’s definitely 100% straight.”
On the Burning Man kissing photos, “Wasn’t ready for that,” he says. (See photos of Adam Lambert kissing boys.)
On getting caught with gay porn, Adam’s father Eber caught his 13-year-old son looking at gay pornography on the family computer, and turned to his wife and said ‘It’s official.’ Later, Lambert’s mother asked if he had a girlfriend. He said no. She asked if he had a boyfriend. He said no. Then she asked if he wanted a boyfriend, to which Lambert replied “Yes, that would be nice.”
Experimenting with drugs, He tried drugs for the first time at 21, during his six-month European tour of Hair. That was when he dyed his hair black. In Germany, he started smoking pot and tried Ecstasy. But he does have limits. Among his dislikes: cocaine.
Does not do drag, “I’ve only dressed in drag three or four times. … I don’t tuck and wear breasts, that’s not me.”
TweetThe media really needs to stop making a big deal out of Adam Lambert and his boyfriend Drake Lambry, but I really like how both of them handle the media frenzy with such class, managing to stay tight-lipped about their personal lives and Adam’s career while remaining friendly.
TMZ was stalking the pair and managed to catch up with them as Adam was headed to bring Drake to the airport, who was going to catch a flight to Louisiana. Yep, Drake’s leaving town, which means you can all stop stalking them now! Both of them just laughed it off when the TMZ reporter repeatedly tried to get them to kiss for the camera while they walked.
