Adam Lambert Says 'If I Had You' Clip 'Gets Kind of Psychedelic'

Adam Lambert

'I was inspired by the parties that I've gone to in the past, like Burning Man,' Lambert tells MTV News of the video.

Adam Lambert has already dropped some hints about the over-the-top video for his latest single, "If I Had You." And when MTV News caught up with the singer backstage at KIIS-FM's annual Wango Tango festival in Los Angeles, the former "American Idol" contestant admitted that all he needed to shoot the clip were some old pals.

"The thing about the video [is] there is a love interest: It's all my friends," he explained. "It's about the love that you have with your circle of people that you surround yourself with.

"The 'If I Had You' video we shot in the woods at night," he continued. "I was inspired by the parties that I've gone to in the past, like Burning Man and this other party called Lightning in a Bottle. There's a big kind of subculture in California and around the country of people who are designers and performance artists, just free spirits that like to come together and play dress-up and have a good time. And it's a very specific community, one that's inspired me a lot."

Instead of casting people to look like they could be part of this subculture, Lambert got his real friends onboard. "I invited my friends to come party in my video, so there's a real authentic joy," he explained. "And it gets kind of psychedelic. There's just gonna be a lot of special effects ... Some are from [Los Angeles variety extravaganza] "The Zodiac Show," some are from parties [and] clubs. ... Some of them I've done theater with. It's a big variety of people."

And, as teased in a photo released last week, there are going to be some great costumes from the fashionista himself. "You know me and costumes, I tried to do as many looks as I could," he said, adding that he was a little shocked there were paparazzi hanging around near the set. "It's funny 'cause I wanted to keep that whole thing a secret. I think there were paparazzi camped out on the hillside."

'American Idol': Adam Lambert thinks Crystal Bowersox should win Season 9

'American Idol': Adam Lambert thinks Crystal Bowersox should win Season 9
By Andrea Reiher| Zap2it May 17, 2010

"American Idol" Season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert has picked his winner of Season 9 -- Crystal Bowersox.

Lambert tells Hollywood Life at his Wango Tango concert in Los Angeles, when asked who he thinks should win Season 9, "I think Crystal is great. I love her anti-establishment attitude."

Adam is about to embark on his Glam Nation tour this summer -- it kicks off June 4 in Wilkes-Barre, PA and continues until Sept. 4 in Rockford, IL. He has said he'd love to come back for the "American Idol" finale, so we wonder if we'll see him there before his tour starts.

The Top 3 of "American Idol" perform the judges' choice songs this week. Ellen DeGeneres chose "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney for Crystal Bowersox. Kara DioGuardi and Randy Jackson chose "Daughters" by John Mayer for Casey James. Simon Cowell chose "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen for Lee Dewyze, who will probably do a version closer to Jeff Buckley's haunting rendition than Cohen's original.

Adam Lambert

In a move that will undoubtedly bring joy to his devoted fans, People magazine has included Adam Lambert on its 2010 list of "World's Most Beautiful" people.

In a video posted on its website, People gives Adam's fans a taste of what his photo shoot for the issue was like. He strikes a series of poses in jet-black feathers and leather, in a thorny sort of crown and leopard-skin-print shirt, and wearing white angel wings, golden epaulettes … with two live parrots perched on his shoulder and hands.

Adam can be heard in voice-over describing his look in 10 words or less: "Glam, theatrical, expressive … how many words is that?" And describing his favorite feature: "If I had to pick a favorite feature on myself, it would probably be my eyes. That's why I like to put so much eye makeup on them, because I just like to make them pop out. Or my hair."
