The promotion train is full speed ahead for Adam Lambert’s forthcoming third studio album, The Original High. He’s definitely working the grind to ensure the word is out. Hot off the heels of his broody spread for Hunger comes another editorial in a high-profile magazine.
The 33-year-old poses for an 11-page spread in the new issue of Attitude magazine. Glambert is looking pretty fine these days. He also opens up about life as a ‘post-gay’ pop star, his fellow gay compatriots and his new LP. Check out a few quotes below, along with another photo from the issue.
“Sam Smith, hats off, he has had an amazing year, he’s a lovely guy. I’ve met him a few times. I’m so happy for him, and I’m so happy his sexuality wasn’t a big thorn in his side. It was just: ‘This is who I am, I’m cool with it and so you should be too.’ And his songs are timeless and beautiful, and everybody relates to them. He’s doing it right, for sure.”
Adam Lambert is about to embark on a new era with his third studio album, The Original High. It’s his first offering since leaving RCA Records over creative differences and signing with his new label. I can’t wait for the lead cut, “Ghost Town,” to drop on April 21. The slinky Max Martin-produced track will undoubtedly be huge club hit.
The 33-year-old singer talks about his new album, singing with Queen, advancing gay rights in the music industry with Hunger. Lambert also poses for a stunning broody fashion editorial snapped by Rankin for the publication. Check out more photos and quotes below.
“The first single feels like the perfect introduction to The Original High. It establishes itself in a very earthy, vulnerable way and transforms into a hypnotic dream full of surreal imagery and set to a minimal yet massive deep house beat. The hook will worm its way into your ears after the first listen. Get ready!”
When Glee returns this Thursday, Adam Lambert makes his debut. Based on the stills and audio of his “Marry The Night” performance, it should be a memorable and thrilling extravaganza. I wouldn’t expect anything less.
In a behind-the-scenes clip, Lambert introduces his character Elliott Gilbert who goes by the stage name Starchild. He also talks about initially auditioning for Glee years ago, but producers told him he was too old. Apparently, Glambert found the fountain of youth and now is Glee-ready. Speaking of looks, his skin looks fantastic in the vid. Remember when he was on American Idol? It wasn’t nearly as flawless back then.
Check out the clip below where Chris Colfer and Demi Lovato sing his praises.
Lady Gaga’s little monsters are probably going to crucify me for saying this, but Adam Lambert just showed her up. His cover of “Marry The Night” absolutely slays. He should really book some recording studio time with Fernando Garibay who co-wrote the track. The two of them can create magic together.
Other songs being performed when Glee returns November 7 include Gaga’s “Applause” and Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake” and “Roar.” Lambert teams up with fellow guest star Demi Lovato on the latter. I can’t wait to hear their rendition. In the meantime give Adam’s “Marry The Night” a listen below.
Adam Lambert doesn’t make his Glee debut for another week, but he’s already hanging out with one of its stars, Amber Riley aka Mercedes Jones. The 31-year-old singer kicks off Todrick Hall’s latest masterpiece, Spell Block Tango.
The YouTube sensation teamed up with Marlon Wayans’ new company “What The Funny” to produce a viral Halloween video. Not surprisingly, Disney characters are incorporated in the clip. Hall definitely has a hard-on for all things Mickey, doesn’t he? This time he allows a few of Disney’s most infamous villains to tell their side of their respective fairytale while set to the music of Chicago. It’s actually quite funny.
Along with Lambert and Riley, the clip features appearances by Blake McGrath, Pia Toscano, Cassie Scerbo, several hot shirtless models and Todrick himself. Check out Spell Block Tango below.
First and foremost, Happy National Coming Out Day (NCOD) everyone. How do you plan on celebrating this gay holiday? Come out again? LOL. I kid.
The date of October 11 was chosen because it was the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights where half a million people participated. In 1998, Robert Eichberg, a psychologist from New Mexico, and Jean O’Leary, an openly gay political leader from Los Angeles, made the holiday official and founded NCOD.
To mark the 25th anniversary, the Human Rights Campaign looks back at some of the trailblazing coming out moments in American media that raised the profile of LGBT Americans and sparked important dialogue about the fight for equality. Some of the famous LGBT celebrities featured in the clip include Ricky Martin, Jason Collins, Frank Ocean, Adam Lambert, Lance Bass and naturally Ellen DeGeneres.

Did you catch Ryan Murphy and company’s tribute to Cory Monteith on Glee last night? I can’t even imagine how difficult it was for the writers, crew and especially actors to film this episode. With emotions still raw, I’m certain plenty of tears were shed during filming.
Did it live up to the hype? Given the delicate nature, producers did a solid job. It was a little uneven and disjointed at parts, but when it was on, they got it right. Without question, Lea Michele’s “Make You Feel My Love” performance was the most heartbreaking. I’m certain those tears were 100 percent authentic.
Other musical standouts include Amber Riley’s “I’ll Stand By You” and Kevin McHale & Chord Overstreet’s duet on “Fire & Rain.” On the complete opposite spectrum, Naya Rivera’s “If I Die Young” disappointed. It sounded too fast, plus her storyline seemed forced. Why Dianna Agron wasn’t invited is beyond insane. Besides Kurt Hummel and Rachel Berry, Quinn had the closest connection to Finn and not Santana. I really hope behind the scenes drama and politics weren’t the reason for Quinn’s omission.
At the end of the episode, FOX aired PSAs filmed by the actors persuading people to help others, who are struggling with addiction. They urged people to call 1-800-662-HELP and find help on a treatment website. Profits from official track sales will go to Monteith’s favorite charity, Project Limelight. Check out all the performances from “The Quarterback” below and be sure to weigh in with your thoughts on the episode afterwards.
UPDATE: The tribute episode gave Glee it’s biggest audience in more than a year with 7.4 million tuning in. The episode tied ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy for the lead among adults 18-49 in its hour.

On September 17, 2013 Avicii finally drops his debut album #True. The Swedish DJ recently debuted the music video for the awesome lead cut “Wake Me Up.” Given the surprising twang of the dance hit, the accompanying visual follows suit with a country-themed narrative. It follows a young woman leaving her small town for the promise and glamor of the big city. Naturally, she arrives to the metropolis on her horse.
As wicked as “Wake Me Up” is, the track I’m currently obsessed over is the Swedish producer’s collaboration with Adam Lambert. Avicii teased the track would be “very disco.” Based on the low-quality audio versions kicking on YouTube, I have to agree, but with an EDM twist. With the success of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Bruno Mars’ “Treasure,” going the disco route is a wise move. Check out Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” video below, along with a preview of “ID (Lay Me Down)” featuring Adam Lambert.
