So here is my story ! I have been asked by many how I find and organize all this Adam info and the truth is, I’ve been researching and compiling everything about Adam Lambert since June 2009!
I’ve watched every season of AI (except the current one) and I loved Adam right from the audition. However, when he sang Satisfaction and looked into the camera and moved his right shoulder, I was gone! Totally mesmerized by this man. Even though I have had favorites contestants each season, the Adam Lambert effect was something I had not experienced!
So that night of Satisfaction, I googled “Adam Lambert” and found the “Crawl Through Fire” video from Zodiac Club. OMG! Shared it with a number of family members and friends who were watching Idol. Adam is gorgeous, mega talented and gay was my assessment of the situation.
Couldn’t stop thinking about Adam Lambert and lived last winter (which was pretty horrible in many other ways) waiting for Tuesday and Wednesday nights. I followed every performance and got a bit more on Youtube and loved it all. I enjoyed the energetic performances like Black and White, Born to Be Wild and Whole Lotta Love more than the emotional ones. I loved Adam with his hair down and rocking crazy clothes. Of course, I love them all now!
When Adam came in second, I was angry and hurt like so many! Perhaps that caused me to become even more involved with all the googling and reading every article, watching every video and trying to make sense of that gigantic mistake that America made!
On May 26, the day it was opened, I joined Adam Official, my first fan club ever and I spent a great deal of time there. Lots of good info. Oh, my name on AO was Gloriousca. It’s now ladybeth cause they banned me again!
On June 3, I read an article titled “What is it about Adam Lambert?” Written by Allegra Huston, it made some good points and gave me much to think about in regards to how I was reacting to Adam. I was feeling excited and happy.
I was also reading a book at that time called Find Your Courage, a book I really loved. I kept thinking that if I could only absorb and apply all of the info in that book, I could be who I knew I really was. As I read the pages, I could see that watching Adam navigate his new path was a perfect demonstration of the recommendations made. He was and is a fabulous role model for all.. young and old.
Back to Allegra, within a few days, there were several hundred comments posted on the article. It had sparked something in many women and all sorts of confessions and comments were left by women, young and old and even great grandmothers. I read and reread the comments and found myself laughing out loud in public places and wanting to connect with some of these women who seemed to be willing to let go of their masks and let their true selves out.
Over time, a number of us became regular posters on the site as we all continued to discuss Adam Lambert and our lives. We chatted daily and I became a major information provider for the site. I’m not sure why it worked out this way except that maybe I was so hungry for all info about Adam Lambert and wanted to see everything. I ended up with lists of Websites, Articles, Interviews, Fan tributes, Pictures, Reviews, …. Adam Lambert right from the start. (I’ve posted the fan tributes and all the rest will come eventually) I was particularly fascinated with the words of Adam Lambert and put together a thread on AO of quotes from and about him called Diamonds of the Rock God. Also want to say that deep inside, I believed there was a higher purpose for what I was doing but I had no idea what it was.

Many of you met me at the Idol concert in Syracuse where I wore my Adam Lambert cape. It’s a beautiful cape a la Katy Perry that one of my closest Adam friends made for my birthday last September. So many people took pictures of it in Syracuse…. I was amazed. I also had it at the Kradison concert in NYC where Adam acknowledged it and I nearly cried!
I got onto twitter late last year and shared some stories and quotes with followers. As it started to grow, I found it difficult to keep track of the daily posts. I began to think about a blog and joined this Wordpress site. I have learned through Adam that the best way to learn is to jump right in and not be afraid to take risks. If you had any idea how little I knew about technology last year, you would be shocked. But I’m not afraid to try something new and I’m not afraid to make mistakes. I also have the belief that all of this is happening for a reason which I do not have to understand to move forward with.
One of the best things for me about this journey is that I really do not care what anyone thinks about what I am doing… if they don’t like it, they can move on to something else. And partly because of my confidence, many people I know support and love my passion even if they might be whispering about how crazy I am behind my back!
Really doesn’t matter. I have been very successful in my life. I ran a large, business for more than 25 years, raised two beautiful, successful children who are young adults, have a husband who loves me and lots of good friends. I do some incredible volunteer work that I’m very proud of and I feel like I have already made a difference in the world.
But something was seriously wrong until Adam Lambert sang Satisfaction and changed all of my perceptions of myself. When I first entered the business world , clients would ask where my boss was. The world was not used to seeing women in powerful places. And ladies like me, grew up without many role models for how to be a complete person in the world. Years of motherhood and challenges trying to balance work and family left me in a place where I had accomplished a great deal but was still feeling the pressure to be a person I didn’t find inspiring.
Adam Lambert and his philosophy and his being out there in some way gave me permission to be the person I had dreamed of becoming, when I thought I could have it all. He has helped me to be in the moment and to be passionate and joyful. He showed me through his beautiful example that it is OK to be authentic in the world in spite of the fact that many might not approve!
OMG… I wasn’t planning to write a book about myself. My goal here is to hopefully share some Adam inspiration.
I think I’ve said most of what I wanted to share. If there is anything else, please ask me… or tell me to stop it already. Adam Lambert shifted my life in so many ways. He is the best entertainer ever but he is also a great role model and therapist. I have questioned so many of my beliefs because of Adam and many of them have changed as a result.
So thank you followers for reading this. Writing this blog daily is so much fun. I do believe its going to continue to evolve and I’m very excited about the future.
Thank you so much for your support and love and for all the new friends in places all over the world. I am humbled by your appreciation for this labour of love and I look forward to what the future brings.
Hope to meet many of you at future concerts and events!
Love you all and especially love Adam Lambert!
