‘American Idol:’ Adam Lambert talks overturning of Prop 8 — ‘Equal rights are very glam’  

The proposition 8 in California has been the source of much controversy. It seems as though there is a mixed reaction on the fact that today it has been overturned by a judge. Many celebrities have taken to Twitter to discuss this change, including the former American Idol finalist Adam Lambert who also addressed it via the popular social networking site. Whenever something of importance is coming up, or there is a rumor that needs clearing up — or whatever the case may be, the fans can count on the singer to take to the internet to tell them whatever they need to know.  

Lambert writes to his fans:  

“Prop 8 Overturned! I’m glad California has restored the right for ALL of its citizens to marry whoever they please! Equal rights are very Glam!”  

Adam Lambert has always been very open with the fans. He has been honest about everything from his sexuality to what he thinks about certain political issues. this transparency that he shares with his fans, is one of the qualities that they have grown to admire about the performer–Equal-rights-are-very-glam?cid=sharing_twitter:52611

Adam Lambert: Ke$ha talks ‘true friend’ in singer, lack of MTV VMA nominations  

Yesterday the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards nominees were announced, singer Adam Lambert did not receive any nods, but his friend Ke$ha did. In true form, he took to Twitter to congratulate her on her success. In a new interview, Ke$ha discusses her friend and how “unfortunate” it is that he was not nominated.  

As Billboard reports, when asked about Lambert, Ke$ha explains: “It’s a little bit unfortunate that he didn’t get nominated, because he does have one of the best voices I’ve ever heard. In a business full of utmost do****baggery, I’m really lucky to have found a real friend in him.”  

Many fans of course have expressed the fact that they have been surprised that Adam Lambert did not receive a nomination, especially since his album, and singles continue to do so well on the charts. His Glam Nation tour continually sells-out venues due to the sheer fact that demand of fans must be kept up with. Due to all these various facts, it is a bit odd that he was not nominated at all. “If I Had You” continues to be toward the very top of VH1’s Top 20 countdown, and the video is still doing well on the iTunes charts.

Recap from Meet and Greet by @glamtravelr (posted on Planet Fierce)

Glamtraveler Meets Adam!I had a meet and greet with Adam in Las Vegas! He is the most gracious, beautiful, and dedicated person. Yes person, that was my impression after I left. He is a young man who is at the top of his game, going after his dream, and giving it all he has to give.After standing in line, I turned the corner and Neil was taking pics of people with Adam. I asked Neil if he recognized me, because he has glared at me in various cities over a dozen times. He said no. Good. Game on Neil. Then it was my turn. I have been close to Adam a few times, so I wasn’t completely star struck, so I thought. But this is where my memory fades in and out.. Adam was just so beautiful! He said hello and it burst out of my mouth, ” Do you remember me?”I have been to a dozen concerts by this time, front row, second, filmed, took pics, and I’m sure he was looking at me many times! He even blew me a kiss at a bus a few days ago after I yelled his name (respectfully, of course). I thought I was one of those people he talked about recognizing from on stage. I had a chat with Eber, and he even suggested Adam probably knew who I was…Well, Adam very quietly (I think he was saving his voice somewhat), said “No, I’m sorry, have we met?” And silly me, I said “You gave me a hug at the buses in Myrtle Beach!”  Adam, in all seriousness, said ” Ohhhhhh.” Me: ” And I was in front row in Charlotte, and second many times, I’ve been to over 12 Glamnations very close, up front!” And Adam said, very respectfully. “Ahhhhh”Then Neil piped in and said, “Take the picture” So Adam, somehow had his arm around me and turned me around for the picture. I wanted to tell him he was looking right at my camera when I filmed the kick to the security guard in DC! He did not know who I was at all. The persona I was totally in love with had no idea who I was. Ah well, we were moving on.I can’t remember being so close to him, but I did remember to notice he smelled good. Somewhat like the Westin hotel aroma, ginger and some light spices. (Crazy, but passing along info.)I thought then he was using his best acting/greetings lines to perfection. Then I told him he was inspiring me to live my life to the fullest. I told him he was our John Lennon, spreading love and acceptance.  That got his attention. He totally looked at me with attention and I started babbling. He did say thank you very much, I think.I wanted to say because of him, I now could chat with silly teenage girls. I could stand in line with people I would previously avoiding walking near. I could go without food, water, bathroom breaks for hours. I could begin conversations with gay boys, crazy ladies, and people with piercing and tattoos and let them know I totally accepted who they were and loved them for it. But instead I just got another hug. He signed some things and I got another hug. I left thinking he was just a person. Talented, beautiful, and dedicated no doubt. But when I was dumped into the sand that was the venue in Las Vegas, people started to notice the meet and greet patch. I didn’t want to say anything to dispel the Adam myth.I stood in the back of the venue with people who flew in from Japan. Stood next to questionable local Las Vegas woman who was by herself totally into Adam. Found a fellow PFer. Watched mothers and daughters bond. Watched gay men sing together, and a lesbian couple make out.
Adam was spectacular, and I was totally mesmerized.When I left the venue, fellow fan friends all asked about the meet and greet. Does it matter that he doesn’t know who I am? No. Does it matter that he is just a young man on the brink of stardom? No. The Adam Lambert phenomena is so much more then that. Because of Adam Lambert, I am living my life to the fullest. I am happier then I’ve been in a long, long time. He is bringing people together in love and acceptance. We are carrying the message forward. At the airport flying home, I tired to bond with some the people there. Not happening. We are sooo lucky to be into this Adam Lambert experience! I can’t wait to go to another Glamnation and fall under the spell of this amazing man and all you wonderful fans! I am a better person for it.

  1. I loved Glamtravlre’s experience w/Adam, everything that they said in the article is so true. Adam has changed me & so many others by his way of Being. & Yes Adam is just a Person but an Awesome one at That.

  2. Fabulous write up by Glamtraveler! Nice to see her realize that there is no way Adam is going to remember everyone he sees – even if it is repeatedly – and that it really doesn’t matter. Yes, he is just a human like all of us – another person who just happens to have an amazing ability to sing & connect with people even in tiny snippets of time. And yes, it is that ability to be open & willing to connect which we should all share as much as we can, every day, whether we are with our Glamily or not.
