Adam Lambert talks about his New Album “For Your Entertainment,” Working with Lady Gaga, and His Appeal to Women

Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood might want to watch their backs. Adam Lambert, the Season 8 “American Idol” runner-up, is poised to become one of the reality show’s biggest break-out stars. The glamtastic rocker released “Time for Miracles,” the closing credits song for this Friday’s disaster porn epic “2012.” And his first solo album, “For Your Entertainment,” drops Nov. 23, one day after he’s scheduled to perform at the American Music Awards. Lambert talked to Speakeasy about his music, his fans and why he’s so appealing to women.

The Wall Street Journal: On your Twitter feed, you said Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” video “melted my brain.”

Adam Lambert: Oh my god, I love it. It’s so out there. She’s so brave in her artistic freedom; she’s an inspiration.

WSJ: She actually contributed a song — “Fever” — to your new album.

AL: Yeah, I really wanted to work with her; she’s just one of my favorites right now. She had an old demo — I think she said she got signed with that demo to her first label deal — and then she never produced it and got it done. I think that it’s a really catchy melody; the lyrics are really fun and silly. Overall, I really enjoyed the process of recording with her. She was on the other side of that glass, just egging me on. She was constantly like, ‘Go crazier! Go higher! Go louder!”

WSJ: If and when you make a music video for “Fever,” would she cameo?

AL: I’d love it. Of course I’d ask her. We’ll see if she’d actually want to do it. She has a lot on her plate right now.

WSJ: You seem so at ease with fame. What do you attribute that to?

AL: I think it helps that that I’ve lived in L.A. for the last eight years and I’m a little older. I’m 27, seen a lot of s—, met a lot of people. I’ve certainly been on the sidelines of paparazzi barrages, like, I’ve been out at a club with various reality show acquaintances and they get that kind of attention. So I’ve been near it, which helps me not to be thrown off by it. My M.O. is just do what you do and don’t feel like you have to make apologies for it. I’m sure there will come a point when I have to apologize for something, but not yet.

WSJ: A lot of big stars go out of their way to hide the fact that they’re gay, but you’re happily out and women still throw thongs at you — what do you think you’re doing differently?

AL: I think it’s a testament to just owning yourself, owning your stuff, and just being comfortable in your skin. It took me some time to get to that point and the timing of “Idol” was appropriate because [that's] when I realized, you know what? I love myself and I am a good person.

WSJ: What do you think your appeal to women is?

AL: I’m not sure — to be honest, that’s one of the more surprising elements about this whole thing. I’m like, really? I honestly don’t know — maybe it’s because, whatever the sexuality thing, I’m a friendly person, and maybe there’s a safety thing involved, in that I’m not threatening.

WSJ: How much say did you have in creating your album cover?

AL: That was pretty much my call. When we got to the point of doing the photo shoot, I just wanted to go super androgynous glam, kind of campy and outlandish. I love imagery like that — that’s why I love the Lady Gaga video. It’s just funny, because the second a guy starts doing things out of the box, people get all freaked out. But women do it all the time, so it’s an interesting double standard.

WSJ: Bowie seems to have been an obvious inspiration.

AL: Yup, Bowie, Jagger, Boy George, Prince, and Michael Jackson — all those guys who would put make up on and look glamorous. Some of the Michael Jackson covers are amazing, like “Dangerous,” where it’s just his eyes and the entire thing is just super frosted and touched up and perfect. And pictures of Bowie back in the day, like the “Hunky Dory” cover where he’s just pretty and in soft focus. I love that look and think it’s cool that not a lot of guy are doing it, so that’s how I’m going to style myself. It’s part of my persona and has been consistently. That’s why I find it so funny that people were surprised by the cover. I mean, didn’t you see me onstage with KISS and the glitter boots and the rhinestones around my eyes [on "Idol"]?

WSJ: Still, do you ever feel trapped in any way by the glam image?

AL: No, I don’t feel trapped. I’m the one who put on those clothes; it’s my own making. I feel like when I want to, I can change it up like I did on the show. I try not to get trapped in any one musical or visual style at all. I mean, that’s part of what I was really trying to do on “Idol” — change it up week to week, like variety tray. A veggie platter, if you will.

WSJ: Were you upset when tracks of your album were leaked online earlier this month?

AL: To be honest, yeah. I would have rather it not been, but that’s how you sell a CD on the internet. It’s hard, because people jump to conclusions based on 30 seconds, and I don’t know how fair that is. It is what it is.

WSJ: Which song pushed you the furthest vocally?

AL: “Sure Fire Winners” is pretty vocally acrobatic. It’s crazy — but they all kind of go crazy. Artistically, I think the Linda Perry song was a departure for me because it was a little out of my obvious comfort zone — vocally, it sits in this falsetto space, and lyrically, if you really listen to it, it’s complicated. The lyrics contradict themselves, which was done on purpose — Linda and I really talked about it.

There are two different interpretations: one is that it’s about two members of a relationship, and what’s going on in their heads when they’re with each other. One partner is loving every moment and in bliss, while the other person is feeling empty and not satistfied. The other way to look at it is that it’s about one person, going back and forth about a relationship in their head. Like one day, we feel like we love this person to death, the next, what the hell. It’s emotionally complicated, which makes it special.

WSJ: Speaking of “Sure Fire Winners,” it sounds like an homage to “We are the Champions.” Is it?

AL: It wasn’t intentional, and I didn’t write that song. But yeah, that’s totally the vibe. I don’t know if the writers did that on purpose or not. But it is like a “we rock” kind of anthem.

WSJ: How closely do you follow the forums on your site and read what people tweet at you?

AL: I breeze through Twitter — I look at the mentions, the pictures, the videos. But I try not to get too wrapped up in message boards because it’s crazy. When the fans are supportive, that’s super positive. On the flip side, when message boards are filled with negativity, I find it sad that people have nothing better to do than hate on others online. It’s not a good vibe.

WSJ: Have you heard Kris Allen’s album?

AL: I haven’t heard his album, but love his single. I’ll be one of the first to get a copy, I’m sure.

WSJ: Are you going to return to “American Idol” to perform during the new season?

AL: If they want me to perform, I’d love to.

WSJ: Would you have liked to see Ellen DeGeneres as a judge?

AL: No, I wouldn’t change my experience at all. I love Paula and think she’s amazing. She was one of the first believers [in me], if you know what I mean. She really had my back. As for Simon, he really has nothing to do with me at this point. I mean, he’s a judge. He is also a producer, but he’s not the automatic “Idol” producer. He’s producing Leona Lewis, but that’s his project. Going back to the Internet thing, it amused me how people can be so misinformed. When I read certain things, I just want to tell them, you have no idea what you’re talking about. It’s an endless source of entertainment for me.

Adam Lambert talks about "Not Alienating" Fans with his Sexuality

With the release of his debut album, For Your Entertainment, slated for next week, Adam Lambert is everywhere these days. But one place he hasn't been before is on the cover of Out magazine, the country's leading gay publication. Wearing a tuxedo and a quizzical look, Lambert posed for the "Out 100" issue alongside comedian Wanda Sykes, gay icon Cyndi Lauper, former Army lieutenant and "don't ask, don't tell" opponent Daniel Choi, and "Chicago" director Rob Marshall.

One misconception Lambert dealt with early in the interview was the suspicion from some gay fans that he dropped not-so-subtle, winking hints about his sexuality on "American Idol" before officially coming out of the closet after the program ended.

"There was never any deliberate, like, 'I'm going to hint now...' because I was never in the closet," he said. "The funny thing about dealing with all that was ... [Long pause.] When those pictures came out online, I got freaked out. I was like, 'Great, that's gonna f--- things up.' 'Cause I just figured, you know, this is a national television program and people are conservative in our country, aside from L.A. and New York and a couple of other places."

Lambert said he decided early on that he was not going to make his sexuality a factor on the show, because to him it was about entertaining the audience. But he knew that some fans might be upset by his decision.

"It's a hard thing that everybody's gonna have their opinion about," he said. "Some people in the gay community might look at it like, 'You really should've owned that. You didn't hide it, but you didn't admit it and that's weak.' My whole point is, I'm not trying to lead the f---ing way for the civil-rights movement that we're in right now. I just happen to be a gay man — and I'm not ashamed of that at all."

Lambert lauded the Fox publicity team for how they handled the leak of pictures of him making out with an ex-boyfriend and explained that he told the show's spokesperson he was not ashamed of the photos and didn't feel like he had to deny (or confirm) anything.

" 'I don't want to seem like I'm ashamed of it. Because that's not me,' " he said he told her. " 'That's just not how I am. But at the same time, I really want this opportunity and I want to stay on the show as long as possible. So, I kinda have to come up with a compromise.' And [the publicist] was like, 'Well, is it a big deal to you?' And I'm like, 'No.' And she's like, 'Well, then let's not make a big deal out of it.' And that's what we did. ... And I'm glad that I handled it that way, because I think that had I immediately said the words and labeled myself — you know, said 'I am gay' — I think that it would've been more about that, initially, than anything else."

Among other topics, Lambert discussed his shock at finding that many of his fans are not feeling his collaborator and kindred spirit Lady Gaga: "A lot of my core fans — people that went to the 'Idol' concerts, and I glance at the messages boards once in a while — there is a surprising amount of them that don't like her."

He also discussed how his desire to just stay on "American Idol" from week to week drove him to adopt a chameleon-like persona.

"This week I'm not going to have any rocker style. I'm going to do Motown. I'm not going to wear any makeup, and I'm going to do my cleaned-up classic retro look," he explained of his strategy. "And people were like, 'Wow!' And I'm like, 'To me it's not really that different. I'm just wearing a suit. I just brushed my hair.' " He was surprised when his efforts to change it up each week were met with support from the show's producers, who allowed him to be himself, realizing that the chatter was good for ratings.

He also talked about how the goofy Ford videos the "Idol" contestants dreaded were actually good practice for when he filmed his "Time for Miracles" clip, what kind of boys he's into and the loss of anonymity that comes with suddenly being a famous pop star.

Lambert admitted that the tremendous pressure he feels to succeed has already gotten to him a couple of times, but said his decade-plus of experience in musical theater and living in Los Angeles has perhaps made him more prepared than other contestants. "When you're in the city of entertainment, and you open your eyes and you meet people and you hear stories and you have friends that have been through this and that, going onto a show like 'Idol,' you get it, going into it," he said.

In response to a question about Lambert's handlers telling the magazine not to make their client seem "too gay," the singer said there is something to that idea in crafting his image. "I think the whole magic of this moment is that I'm not alienating anybody," he said. "I'm not trying to anyway. I want as many people to feel like they can like the music. I don't want to edit myself to the point where I feel like I don't have integrity. ... It's almost like being a political figure. It's like a balancing act."

Adam Lambert, Kris Allen, Allison Iraheta Illustrate Personal Styles In Elle

Kris Allen, Allison Iraheta and Adam Lambert all certainly have very distinct senses of style. So when the trio of "American Idol" stars teamed up for an Elle magazine photo shoot, they each got to express their individual sense of fashion. And, yes, that means that Lambert was wearing eyeliner and spiky platforms.

Lambert appears in the spread all dolled up in a glam suit posing with a microphone. "Accessories were the big thing for Adam," Elle creative director (and "The City" regular) Joe Zee says in his A to Zee column in the December issue.


"He's got a classic uniform of nonconformity," Zee continued about Lambert's look. "But I wanted the finishing touches to make his look a look. Think dangerous: chainmail scarf, link-chain gloves, spiked boots."

Just to illustrate the contrast of the singers' styles, Zee dressed Allen in Lambert-style wings and platforms — a look the "Idol" winner clearly can't pull off. But in the real spread, Allen embraces his "soulful quality" in a tie, vest and skinny black pants, holding an acoustic guitar. "He's like a young Chris Isaak who can sing in a stadium and make every person feel like it's a one-on-one performance," Zee wrote.

As for the only lady in the group, Zee wanted to keep Iraheta's personal aesthetic alive and make sure her rocker spirit was captured in the photos, dressing her in a figure-hugging one-sleeve dress and leopard-print ankle boots. "I'm very inspired by girl rockers," Zee explained, "especially a young Courtney Love and Grace Slick, and mixed kick-ass sexy with the toughness of her attitude and the music."

Adam Lambert on the Demons and Dance Behind "For Your Entertainment" - Rolling Stone Interview Part 2

"Broken Open" is one of the album's big ballads. Can you talk about the record's slower songs?
There's three songs that are really emotional, a little bit slower, softer. One of them is a song that Muse wrote, "Soaked." That opens up with a real soft vocal, it's very tender, the lyrics are very vulnerable, then it goes into a soaring ballad-type feel. That was another example — we got the song from Muse, and I was shitting myself, I couldn't believe it, I thought, "This is incredible, I can't believe they're giving me a song." I'm a huge fan, and it, too, like the rest of the three that I'm talking about, have this real retro feel to it, melodically and even in the style of the production, very Seventies, at times very Sixties, almost like a Shirley Bassey song mixed with a Queen record. "Broken Open" you could put it in the same category as a downtempo Goldfrapp song or even like Radiohead, there's shades of that in there, very electronic but mellow, very ethereal. The lyrics are basically encouraging someone to feel safe in being vulnerable. "Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open." It's about that moment where someone really opens up emotionally to you. I just wrote that from some experiences that I've had with certain people in my life, and I hope that it comes across that way.

The songs you write on your own, do you tend to gravitate toward ballads or sadder songs?
I like to write both, I just like to write something that means something. Even "Strut," it's not incredibly hooky, but it's a self-empowerment thing. Strut it out, work your shit, and feel good about yourself and let it all hang out, sooner or later you're going to find love and be happy in your life. So it's fun and it's lighthearted, but it definitely has some weight to it, as far as what it's trying to say. There's another one called "Aftermath" which is probably the most Idol-esque type song on the album. The cool thing is that the lyrics are basically about dealing with your demons. I think there's a universal message in it. It might be about coming out, it might be about self-acceptance, taking the chance of keeping it real and doing what you feel in your heart you have to do, even though it's scary, even though people might not like it. It might be about going to AA. Any sort of traumatic life moment, and in the aftermath of it, of making that decision and dealing with whatever it is you're dealing with, you'll find solace in it. It's another kind of empowerment-type anthem.

People criticized your album cover for its theatrical camp, but you'd argue that's actually where a lot of pop music is heading, correct?
I think that especially right now in the pop scene, theatricality is definitely back. Look at artists like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, for example, two very kitschy, tongue in cheek artists. Even people like Rihanna, it's very theatrical, it's very dramatic, it's very fashion. All that's happening, and people like Madonna have been doing it for years, and Michael Jackson was the master of it. I just think that people want that again. I was fortunate that I got picked for Idol and people liked it, because that was the kind of music I wanted to do, add more presentation to it, a little more showmanship, not just about the voice.

When was the first time you hit one of those crazy notes and realized you could do it?
One of the real high crazy ones? That was in my twenties, I couldn't do it when I was a teenager.

Was it a process of training and training until it came naturally?
I kind of rejected voice lessons, in a way, I stopped taking voice lessons when I was 20, and I found my voice after that, when I wasn't being told what to do. I wasn't worrying about singing correctly. When you take voice lessons, you get kind of programmed to sing correctly, and when I stopped singing correctly, I had a cooler sound, I think.

When you were auditioning the guys for your band, what was the vibe you were looking for?
The guitar player is somebody I've been writing with and I've known for years, actually, Monte Pittman. I had a band together for a little while here in L.A., a short-lived band, and we had written songs together and we're going to keep writing songs together. I told him a long time ago, "You're going to be in my band." There's a loyalty there, and we have a working relationship that's really great. He's been playing with Madonna for years, he's great. The drummer has a really good energy, and he's an Aquarius like me. I get kind of dorky about the astrology, I hate to admit it.

Have you gotten any new tattoos recently?
No. I thought about it. I need to find something that I want first. I'm not sure what else I want to put on my body, but I'd like to.

Adam Lambert on the Demons and Dance Behind "For Your Entertainment" - Rolling Stone Interview Part 1

Adam Lambert tells Rolling Stone how whiskey and David Bowie influenced his debut album, For Your Entertainment. American Idol's first real rock star also opened up about working with Muse and writing one of the record's most tender ballads. Here's more from Jenny Eliscu's conversation with the man RS dubbed a glam-rock sex god during his fantastic Idol run:

Tell me about the process of making this record.
We did some recording on tour, not that much, though. What we ended up doing was conceptualizing on the road, and then just collecting as many demos and ideas as possible. Before the tour started, I did write for like a month. Over the course of the tour, we collected a lot of different music and found what resonated with us. The cool thing about the whole process was that we took a lot of the songs from demos and really developed them and tried to tailor them to the vibe that I was going for on the album, which was to blend old and new, to take classic rock-sounding track and say, "How can we modernize this, how can we give it an electronic edge?" I think it went pretty well.

Going into it, before you heard a single demo, what were the things you were certain you wanted it to be?
I wanted to do somehow not a classic and Eighties rock thing, the stuff I got credibility for on Idol. I wanted it to be dance, I wanted it to be pop, I wanted it to be international — these were our check boxes. I really wanted to do a new pop glam thing. I didn't want to create an album that was cohesive, because that's not my personally, I wanted something that was all over the map, because that's the kind of music I like to listen to, and I like to sing a lot of different styles of music, and there should be something different for every mood you're in.

Do you think your look will go through different phases?
I love dress-up, I love costume, I love make-up and all that shit, so I have a feeling that I'm going to tailor a look for each song. I kind of think that for the first single, "For Your Entertainment," we're going to go for more of an old Hollywood look, like 1930s style, but influences of Berlin, kind of dark, black and white, opium den, old glam? I want it to look like Valentino, old movie star, like black and white, pencil moustaches — that kind of vibe.

You've spent a lot of time absorbing lots of music. Do you have a large record collection?
Yeah, I'm a freak with iTunes, I'm constantly fucking buying music. I love listening to whatever's new and fresh, and I'll go back and explore. I went through a period of time where all I was listening to was stuff from the late Sixties, the whole flower power fuckin' psychedelic hippie-type music, like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, the Beatles. I remember at one point I was listening to a lot of disco. I love disco music, anyone who doesn't love disco, I don't know?

Every generation has some kind of music they have baggage about.
Yeah. I love dance music, I've always loved dance music. I think anything with a good beat that makes you feel like getting ready for the evening, going to work, in the gym, it's inspiring, it makes you feel good. It makes you move and it makes you want to feel sexy and flirt with somebody and have a drink. There's a lot of that on the record, because I love that.

What was it like working with Lady Gaga? She brought you a demo from a few years ago?
We just talked about the direction of which way it would go, and she said, "I really want to make more current than the demo is, and dance it up, make it a little more disco-y, and I was like, "Yeah, let's do it." I think we accomplished it.

Did you do more work on it with respect to lyrics? How much did it change the song itself from the demo?
On American Idol, I tended to interpret things vocally, there's a lot of ad-libbing and stuff going on. It was a simple melody before, and we made it a lot more in your face and over the top.

What about "Music Again," the song Justin Hawkins from the Darkness contributed?
It has a classic rock riff to it that I thought was so sexy. Another band that was a major reference was Queen. You hear that influence in a couple different songs, and the chorus of that song, I wanted the harmonies to sound like Queen, I wanted it to be really full. Also, bands like Sweet used to do that with their vocals, glam bands. I just wanted to show people I had a sense of humor with this shit. It's fun, it's supposed to be kind of campy.

Adam Lambert: Dating? No. Clubbing? Yes!

Adam Lambert and his boyfriend, Drake LaBry, may have recently called it quits, but that doesn't mean the singer is on the market.

"I'm so busy with all this stuff and with the record that I'm really just focused on the music right now," Lambert told us last night at TV Guide magazine's Hot List Party at the SLS Hotel.

Not that he doesn't enjoy having a good time. Lambert was spotted after the TV Guide bash hanging at Hollywood's Bardot nightclub. In addition to chatting with Samantha Ronson, I'm told he appeared quite cozy with "a blond model-like guy in his thirties."

OK, now we can talk about the music...

As I told you earlier today, Lambert's American Idol cohort Kris Allen insists there's no rivalry between the two. Lambert feels the same way.

"If anybody watched the show, they'll know that we're like apples and oranges," Lambert said. "That's part of the reason we got along so well. It felt like we were comrades in this competition and this experience. And I feel like we still are."

Lambert's CD, For Your Entertainment, is due out on Nov. 23, just days after Allen's self-titled debut.

Lambert still has to complete the video for his first single, "Time For Miracles," from the movie 2012. "It's going to be pretty sexy," he said. "Get ready."

Just how sexy?

"I'll be dressed," Lambert said, "but there will probably be some people that are pretty sexy—yeah!"

Could Adam Lambert have a TV future?

Adam Lambert already has a TV background with "American Idol;" now, it looks like the genre-bending singer is looking to make a foray into acting. According to Showbiz Spy, Adam is looking to take on some acting roles in the future: “I hope acting’s in my future, yeah...It is something that I’ve done a lot over the past eight or 10 years."

Of course, this statement immediately begs the question: where could Lambert land? While he says that he would like to do a movie, we know that at least one TV show is interested in his services: "Glee." The Fox musical / comedy would be a perfect fit for his talents, but would Adam really want to return to the network that made him famous so quickly?

If Adam merely wanted to put his foot in the door, a guest spot on a show like "NCIS" or "CSI" (similar to what Taylor Swift did) could work very well. Many sitcoms would probably try to exploit the singer, so an offbeat show or a drama may very well be the best choice.

Are there any TV shows in which you would like to see Adam appear? Let me know your thoughts with a comment and stay tuned for more news. Adam Lambert's debut album, "For Your Entertainment," will hit stores on November 23. Pre-order it by clicking here Now!

Adam Lambert Defends His Glittery Image

"People want to talk about whether I have rock cred, whether I'm selling out, the theatricality, the gay stuff. ... Chill out! And just enjoy yourself. It's not that deep. Sometimes it is deep. Some of the songs on the album are. Sometimes it's just, 'This is hot, I feel good, this song makes me want to go get a drink and flirt with somebody and have a good time.' Good energy is just as credible as the cathartic, dark, heavy stuff. It's just as important!"

-"American Idol" runner-up and budding glam icon Adam Lambert, who spoke to The Los Angeles Times about his debut album, his ever-evolving image and the public reaction to his work outside of "Idol." Lambert's first record For Your Entertainment drops in a few weeks, but he has already found himself defending his aesthetic choices — including his embrace of traditionally theatrical tropes. "People look at me and immediately say, 'Oh, he's doing the musical-theater thing,'" he explained. "But if you look at most female pop stars right now, how are they any less theater? Beyoncé is doing 'Single Ladies' with two girls in character shoes and leotards, doing Fosse choreography from 'Sweet Charity' and 'West Side Story.'" The singer credits his eclectic taste with his multi-faceted sound. "I was a Paula Abdul fan, a Michael Jackson fan, a Madonna fan. When Christina Aguilera came out when I was in high school, that was a great example of someone taking the pop-dance feel but who could really sing," he said. "Pop stars have done it; it's just not a lot of guys have done it."

2012 stars John Cusack and Amanda Peet talk about Adam Lambert's 'Time for Miracles'

Tuesday night, at the Los Angeles red-carpet premiere for "2012" — that most disastrous of all disaster movies — Adam Lambert told reporters that he feels honored to have contributed "Time for Miracles" to the film's soundtrack. So how do the film's stars feel about it?

"I love him," Amanda Peet told MTV News of the "American Idol" runner-up. "I love him. I love him."



John Cusack, meanwhile, was less honored than amusingly confused when asked about the man known as Glambert. "I have no clue," he confessed. "No, I've seen 'American Idol.' They have the guy, Dr. Sanjay Gupta. He was on that, right? Anderson Cooper won a few times."

Well played, Cusack! Peet wasn't able to play it nearly as cool the one and only time she had the opportunity to meet Lambert, at the "2012" premiere. "I said 'Hi,' but by the time I said 'Hi,' he was already walking past, and I was walking this way, and it was too late to accost him because he had already gone by," the actress laughed. "Which is probably a good thing."

Like Cusack, director Roland Emmerich had never heard of Lambert before his involvement with "2012." Emmerich was busy filming during the past "Idol" season, and he never watches TV anyway. But he liked the song, and a Sony exec showed him some YouTube videos of Lambert, suggesting he'd be a good fit to sing it.

"I said, 'Oh, my God, what an incredible voice,' " the director told MTV News.

So, Lambert recorded "Miracles," which became his post-"Idol" debut as well as a bonus track on his major-label debut, For Your Entertainment, which hits on November 23, 10 days after the release of "2012."

Peet can't wait to hear the tracks. "I'm excited," she said with a grin.

The singer's edge - Adam Lambert: Cool, Calm and Eclectic (part 3)

As an openly gay man during a time when that identity has become more acceptable (in the media, at least), Adam Lambert starts with a surprising advantage over apparently straight rockers: He's expected to be in touch with his feminine side.

"I'm the gay guy pushing the straight boundaries," he said. "But that's what I did on the show! Like when I did 'Ring of Fire,' I went full-on with eye makeup, a really weird outfit and leather. The very next week, I did 'Tracks of My Tears' in a suit, looking really hetero. I was playing with my image. It wasn't that I was trying to be straight."

His playful pan-sexuality and flamboyant swagger, once qualities common to hard rockers, are now owned by the likes of Pink and Lady Gaga. Lambert understands that. He also cites Justin Timberlake as a kindred spirit, if not musically, then in terms of showmanship and fluid style.

"I think the next generation coming up is a little bit more open-minded," he said. "More accepting, more colorful, more multi-genre, multiethnic, multi-sexuality, which is more utopian. Or I think so. I hope so."

What separates Lambert from much of pop's young elite is his voice, an instrument whose timbre, power and range recalls those titans of hard rock.

"He can sing almost any note on a guitar from the lowest to highest," said Cavallo, who thinks Lambert's sense of style and soul, combined with that range, puts him in the realm of the greats. "And if you're in the studio with him and say, 'Can we get a little more dirty?' he'll go 'Waaaaah!' And then the microphone is melted and the speakers have exploded."

Lambert studied opera as a teenager, then turned away from lessons for a while. "I started rejecting the proper way to sing and I started singing," he said. "I was listening to more and more rock music and wondering, wow, how does that person do that with their voice?"

He discovered there was no name for what rock singers do. Lambert's singing, like his taste and his personal style, put him beyond a boundary.

"I met with [a vocal coach] over the summer and talked to him about it, and the funny thing was, you know when I do those little, crazy, screamy notes? He's like, 'We don't really have a way to teach that. It kind of goes outside of our box.' Those notes that sound sort of like rock-scream, no one ever taught me to do. I sort of had to teach myself. You just do it. It's just a sound you make."

The Lambert Way - Adam Lambert: Cool, Calm and Eclectic (part 2)

As Adam Lambert plays the role, a rock star doesn't have to be an angry punk, a brooding post-grunge puritan or a hair-metal style macho dude in a dress. These approaches all have their purpose, but Lambert projects something different: outrageousness that's totally at peace with itself.

He does this by connecting countercultural ideas -- values he learned as a kid touring Germany in a production of "Hair," the musical that first brought rock's spirit to Broadway -- with a trouper's sense of artistic performance as work, which takes brains and a certain sharpness as well as talent.

"His No. 1 challenge, which I think he'll pass, is stay true to himself and to roll with the punches as they come," said Rob Cavallo, who has worked with artists from Green Day to the Dave Matthews Band and produced four tracks on "For Your Entertainment." "He's going to have successes. He might have people against him. Which is exactly what happened to Elvis, the Beatles, to Prince. . . . There will be controversy, and there will be opinions. If he stays true to himself he will be one of those great artists to watch over the years."

Lambert readily admits a huge debt to David Bowie, whom he describes as "my favorite," and other glam and classic rockers such as Mick Jagger and Marc Bolan of T. Rex. (More surprisingly, he repeatedly cites both Prince and Michael Jackson.) Lambert's efforts to succeed as a rocker will hinge on his ability to tap into the legacy Bowie and those others represent. His "emo" side, linking him to bands like Fall Out Boy, also helps. But it's hard to know if the rock world -- and rock radio, in particular -- will embrace him.

"When bands like Fall Out Boy and All American Rejects first came out, they got airplay on modern-rock stations," noted Leslie Fram, a rock radio veteran who's program director of New York's 101.9 RXP FM and co-host of its morning show with Matt Pinfield. "But when they crossed over to the Top 40, it was the nail in the coffin. They went over to the pop side, image-wise, and modern-rock radio wanted nothing to do with them."

Lambert's trying something even these bands didn't attempt -- to succeed in both the rock and pop camps at once. He loves his glam, but he admits that in terms of today's stars, he has more in common with Beyoncé than with Chris Daughtry.

"People look at me and immediately say, 'Oh, he's doing the musical-theater thing,' " he said. "But if you look at most female pop stars right now, how are they any less theater? Beyoncé is doing 'Single Ladies' with two girls in character shoes and leotards, doing Fosse choreography from 'Sweet Charity,' and 'West Side Story.' "

Lambert obviously learned some of his moves from his youth in the theater, but he's also always credited the friends he made through Burning Man, the annual festival of makeshift art that turns a patch of the Nevada desert into its own magic kingdom. If "Hair" introduced him to the language of the counterculture, Burning Man showed him how people spoke it every day.

"There's a community here in L.A. that's part of Burning Man," said Lambert, a San Diego native who moved to Hollywood after high school. "It's an underground community, and when I found out about it I was so much more excited about living here. The people I was meeting were a lot more interesting, more original. And happy, just happy.

"Los Angeles can be a really sad city. If you go to the clubs you meet a bunch of people trying to be actors and not fulfilling their dreams, and they're bitter and sad. . . . But in [the Burning Man] community no one cares. You're living your life, and you feel fabulous about it, and you might be doing it on $5 a day."

Lambert is certainly enjoying his bigger budget now -- especially the "expensive, beautiful and weird" clothes -- but he seems to have preserved the perspective he gained hanging out with serious bohemians.

He does know how to play the music industry game. He raided the executive suites for collaborators on "For Your Entertainment": Its songwriters include ubiquitous hit-makers Max Martin, Ryan Tedder, Linda Perry, Dr. Luke and "Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi, and his producers include big names like RedOne and Rob Cavallo.

"Adam is unusually confident in my mind but not in a pretentious way," Tedder said in an e-mail. "He has the confidence of a guy that absolutely knows who he is to the core, both musically and personally. He spent four days in Denver working with me and was as laid back and comfortable in my studio as he was being swarmed by fans when we went to dinner. For a first-time artist, he definitely had more control creatively than I've ever seen a new act given, but Adam is the kind of person that would rather not put out anything than put out something that was less than 100% his vision."

Pinfield, Fram's co-host on WRXP and a defining force within alternative rock as an MTV host during the 1990s, thinks his eclectic approach could work for Lambert. He might have a tough time on rock radio, Pinfield said, but the singer's fans might not care.

"There was a different world before, with the rock 'n' roll thing," he said. "Today, the same kids who love the Beatles and the Stones and Zeppelin could love Radiohead, and Adam Lambert. Young people today are not as worried about being genre specific."

In the studio, Lambert enlisted hot ingénues Pink and Lady Gaga as writers while securing some of that fabled rock cred by covering material by Justin Hawkins, formerly of English glam revivalists the Darkness, and Muse, a band that he loves.

"I listen to crazy, robust rock music where they sing their faces off, and soul music, which can be similar," Lambert said. "But I also listen to a lot of dance music. I love that style. I was a Paula Abdul fan, a Michael Jackson fan, a Madonna fan. When Christina Aguilera came out when I was in high school, that was a great example of someone taking the pop-dance feel but who could really sing. Pop stars have done it; it's just not a lot of guys have done it. Maybe it's a question of masculine persona."

Adam Lambert "For Your Entertainment" Debut Album to be Released Monday, November 23

With his out-of-this-world vocal range and unique musical style, Adam Lambert is the ultra-glam, rock superstar that has America hooked. On Monday, Nov 23, Adam will unleash one of the most highly anticipated debut albums, "For Your Entertainment," on 19 Recordings/RCA. The record garnered contributions from such innovative artists as Lady Gaga, P!nk, Muse, Justin Hawkins formerly of The Darkness and Rivers Cuomo of Weezer.

Millions of fans watched Lambert's stunning performances on the eighth season
of "American Idol" and now those millions of fans are waiting for the release
of the album and Adam's first single, which Adam introduced on Ryan Seacrest's
radio show Oct. 30. "For Your Entertainment" was written by Claude Kelly
("Circus" by Britney Spears) and Dr. Luke ("I Kissed A Girl" by Katy Perry and
"Girlfriend" by Avril Lavigne, "Right Round" by Flo Rida, along with multiple
singles by Kelly Clarkson) and produced by Dr. Luke.

"I feel so lucky to have been granted true opportunity to work with some of
the top producers and writers in popular music," Says Adam. "This album is a
reflection of their genius and the collaborative energy that they were
gracious enough to share with me."

The credits on Lambert's first album read like a list of the hottest artists
in the music business. Lady Gaga, long cited as a major influence on Adam,
c-wrote the track "Fever" with producer Jeff Bhasker. P!nk is a co-writer on
"Whataya Want From Me," along with Sweden's Max Martin and Johan Shellback.
Matthew Bellamy, of the British prog rock/eletronica band Muse, one of Adam's
favorite groups, wrote "Soaked."

Justin Hawkins, who was lead singer of the acclaimed British quartet the
Darkness, wrote the lead track on the album, "Music Again." Rivers Cuomo,
co-founder, lead singer and principal songwriter for Weezer, is one of the
writers on "Pick U Up," along with Lambert and Greg Wells ("I Do Not Hook Up,"
Kelly Clarkson).

There are other stellar names featured in the credits on Adam's debut release.
Rock goddess Linda Perry, responsible for hits like "Beautiful" by Christina
Aguilera and "Get The Party Started" by P!nk, is the writer and producer of "A
Loaded Smile." Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, whose credits include "Bleeding
Love" for Leona Lewis and "Halo" for Beyonce, wrote and produced
"Sleepwalker."

Adam co-wrote four of the songs on his album. In addition to "Pick U Up," Adam
penned "Strut" with Greg Wells and "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi;
"Aftermath" with Alisan Porter, Ferras and Ely Rise; and "Broken Open" with
Wells and Evan Bogart (whose credits include "S.O.S." by Rihanna and "Jai Ho!
(You Are My Destiny)" from "Slumdog Millionaire."

Four of the tracks on "For Your Entertainment" are produced by Rob Cavallo,
the A-list producer who has worked with Green Day, My Chemical Romance, David
Cook, Alanis Morisette, Chris Isaak, Paramore, Jewel, Shinedown and Dave
Matthews Band. Cavallo produced "Music Again," "Soaked," "Sure Fire Winners"
and the bonus track, "Time For Miracles," from the soundtrack to the new
motion picture, "2012."

One day before "For Your Entertainment" goes on sale, Adam will sing the title
track on television for the first time, appearing on "The American Music
Awards" on ABC-TV on Sunday, Nov. 22. He will give a special live concert
performance on ABC-TV's "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, Nov. 25, "Late
Show With David Letterman" that same night on CBS and will pre-tape on Nov.
23. More TV shows to be announced soon.

Adam Lambert: Cool, Calm and Eclectic (part 1)

The singer's genre-busting major label debut, 'For Your Entertainment,' drops Nov. 23, and it just might make him an American idol all over again.

Kicking off another typical seven-day work week in the offices of his management company 19 Entertainment, Adam Lambert fixed his gaze on his own pretty face. Scattered across his publicist's desk were proof sheets from a photo session with the singer, who will release his debut album on RCA Records, "For Your Entertainment," Nov. 23. The shots captured Lambert in typical glam-god poses: peacock, street tough, space oddity, freaky adventurer in the boudoir of the damned.

Lambert, who in person is none of those things but rather a startlingly grounded 27-year-old radiating Southern Californian optimism, took up a red pencil and circled a frame. "This one needs a little fix here," he said, momentarily playing art director. It's all part of one big performance for Lambert as he works to resurrect rock in the new pop age.

But hold on. When such hyperbole is thrust at him -- by, say, an overly admiring pop critic who followed him closely during last year's "American Idol" contest, when he broke ground as the most successful Idol to be rock-oriented, androgynous and gay -- he lifts a ring-laden hand to brush it away.

"I want to put it out there that I don't take myself all that seriously," he said. That's one of his mantras. "The dress-up supports that; the fantasy element supports it. People want to talk about whether I have rock cred, whether I'm selling out, the theatricality, the gay stuff. . . . Chill out! And just enjoy yourself. It's not that deep."

Then he corrected himself, slightly. "Sometimes it is deep. Some of the songs on the album are," he admitted, pointing to the song "Soaked," a sweeping epic about the loneliness of one-night stands that's actually a cover of an unreleased track from Muse, and a very serious one at that. He also singled out "Broken Open," a ballad he co-wrote, which he said is about encouraging a lover to become vulnerable enough to cry.

"But sometimes it's just, 'This is hot, I feel good, this song makes me want to go get a drink and flirt with somebody and have a good time.' Good energy is just as credible as the cathartic, dark, heavy" stuff, he said. "It's just as important!"

This might be the most exciting message Lambert carries forward into one of the most intensely observed major label debuts in recent pop history. He's reminding America that rock music can be joyful, light-spirited and sublimely silly, just as pop can explore serious subjects beyond the call to hit the dance floor. And that a rock star might also like to dance.

Adam Lambert feels Honored to be on the 2012 Soundtrack

It's a big month for Adam Lambert. He's releasing his debut album, For Your Entertainment, on November 23, which is just 10 days after "2012" hits movie theaters. This isn't exciting news for Lambert because he's a big fan of disaster flicks, but instead because his song "Time for Miracles" appears on the movie's soundtrack.

At the Los Angeles premiere of the film on Tuesday night, he told reporters how great it felt to be asked to contribute to the film's soundtrack since it was long before he had started work on his debut LP.

"I really feel honored that they came to me and asked me. I think it's obviously a risk on their part because this was before any sort of album had been completed or hardly even started," he said. "So for them to ask me, it shows faith. It really made me feel good and gave me a lot of confidence."

Late last month, the video premiered for the song. In it, Lambert makes his way through an apocalyptic world while mugging for the camera and belting out the show-stopping tune. "[Rob] pushed me to the limit. I sang for my life," Lambert said about working with producer Rob Cavallo on the song, which was written by Alain Johannes and the late Natasha Shneider.

Lambert dons his best Goth clothes and anguished face in the video as he makes his way through disaster scene after disaster scene, as everyone around him flees falling buildings and debris raining down from a fiery sky. Despite the fact that the world is coming to an end around him, Lambert looks triumphantly straight into the camera and sings about not giving up on a lost love.

Hear clips from the songs on Adam Lambert's new album

Adam Lambert's "For Your Entertainment" may not hit stores until November 23, but now we have a chance to listen to samples of every song. Thanks to Amazon UK, there are brief 30-second clips of every song available for our listening pleasure.



As expected, the album contains a multitude of different genres while simultaneously tests Adam's vocal range. Some songs, such as "Sure Fire Winners" and "Music Again," definitely have a sound reminiscent of Queen and other decades-old rock anthem bands. Others, such as "If I Had You" and the Lady Gaga-penned "Fever," are more pop-based and contain driving beats and catchy melodies (not to mention a little bit of auto-tune). There are also a few slow ballads in there, such as "Broken Open" and "Soaked."

Overall, the album looks to please Adam's ever-expanding fanbase as he continues to build momentum over the coming weeks (he is currently ranked #9 on Amazon, far ahead of fellow "Idol" contestants Kris Allen and Allison Iraheta). What do you think of some of the song samples? Let me know your thoughts with a comment below and as always stay tuned for more "American Idol" news.
