_______Adam’s Sexy Gems__________
“I’ve been asked what my theme song is before, and that’s “Sex On Fire,” by Kings of Leon—but there hasn’t been much sex on fire this summer because I’m really busy.”
“I’m just gonna remember that feeling, that rush that I got when I got out there with ‘Satisfaction.’ I mean. we arranged it in such a way where it started really slow and it built up to that climax, and that’s literally what my adrenaline was doing; it was just bubbling, it was like simmering, and then it just reached a boiling point and it felt amazing!”
“There’s a lot of sexy songs – songs that are fun to dance to. There’s a lot of anthems and stuff you can sing along to. It pretty much just kicks ass.”- regarding his upcoming album
“Kings of Leon’s ‘Sex on Fire.'”-what theme song should be on when you walk in a room?
“I speak the language of LOOOVE”
“I’ve never made a sex tape … thank goodness.”
“I’m glad it was a soft material and wasn’t anything hard. I’m not really into S&M, but it’s definitely tempting.”- regarding the X-rated projectiles
“Hi Doll…leave me messages when you call Sorry i couldn’t pickup i was tied up. Literally. haha. 20/11/2005 from Adam’s Myspace
“Thanks for the whip!”
“Confidence, intelligence, and self-expression” (what Adam considers sexy)’
“I think sexuality is universal. If something’s attractive to you it’s attractive. Sexy is sexy.”
“I like the top…sorry…That’s inappropriate” (laughs)
“Wow, that’s really flattering…I’m glad I’m causing …gasms”
“My favorite song to sing was ‘Whole Lotta Love’. I got to say ‘every inch of my love’ on National TV.”
“I’m not hot; I can’t wrap my brain around that”- when told he was one of People’s magazine hottest bachelors of the year”
“I’m just happy to be gay.”
“It’s fun and it’s sexy. And if sexy scares you, don’t listen to my music.”
“Entitlement is not sexy”
“I want to bring people together and get them to dance and smile and feel sexy and celebrate our similarities, not our differences.”

_______Upright Café Gems_____________
“So, we’re gonna do the chorus all together and if you’re NOT singing… I’m gonna club you over the head with my microphone”
“I’m gonna sit on the piano now. But I’m not gonna do it side saddle. I’m gonna do it… like a boy….”
“Did you guys get dessert yet? Is there desert happening? Did I get dessert? Did you order dessert for me? Will you? You did? Something chocolate. Great. Good.”
“She’s wonderful. She’s appearing in Wicked right now and I have gotten to kiss those lips and although it’s not necessarily my preference, it was really nice.”
“We all know the feeling of non-intimate companionship…Hello this is West Hollywood….It’s a place of limbo and it hurts.”
“A text message is not okay.” (why don’t you call me anymore?)
“If I had two shoes, I could sell them on Ebay”
“That’s not how you do a sing-a-long…F**k..Off.”
“That’s weak. I’m not convinced.”

_______Audition Gems________________
“I’m not skerrrd”
“I Can Saang”
“I think so.” –Are you then next American Idol?
“If I make it, I think you’ll like what you hear.”
“I want to go out there and fearlessly give them a show.’
“The reason I want to do this is I want to take a song and twist it up and make it my own…. I can.”
“Is it something I could get a shot at working on. I know I can do it.”-response to Simon saying Adam is theatrical and not current
“I will surprise you. I promise.”
“I’m going to take that ruby in my teeth.”
I’m going back home to Hollywood! I made it.”
“The challenge is on..”
“I’m starving.”
“I remember getting into the competition and feeling like, ‘Oh, I hope I crack the top 10. I never thought I would get that far in ‘American Idol’ considering that I’m a little bit more alternative.”

_______ “About Adam” Gems_________
“More makeup and oh I look fat and I hate high-definition.”-what he thinks of seeing himself on TV
“High. Fierce. Beat. Horny. Fun”. – five words to describe an Adam Lambert concert
“My parents are really, really cool. They’re hip parents. My mom has obviously no objections to the way I style myself but there have been moments when she is like ‘Why do you have all that eyeliner on? Maybe you shouldn’t wear that.’ And then I go, ‘Mom, that’s me. I’m just being myself. You know, I’m trying to just be authentic.’ And she’s like, ‘OOO-kay. I guess you do what you wanna do. Why’d you put those holes in your ears? Uuugh’ “(Adam laughs)
“I like getting an emotional reaction out of people. There is an energy exchange that takes place between artist and audience that gives me a huge rush,”
“I feel that I have talked about everything. I cracked my life right open. I have tried to rack my brain over that.”
“You know what, I have nothing to hide, I am who I am and this is about singing. Nothing else.”
“I wasn’t really popular in high school….I was kinda the weird kid … so for all the weird kids out there you can do it!”
“I think just daring to be honest with everybody about who I am. I’m honest to a fault sometimes. I mean, like, I have no filter. (Adam laughs) I’m so honest I will say exactly what I’m thinking. I hardly ever, ever, ever lie, unless it’s to protect somebody, and I think that’s the biggest risk – it is just truly being fearless in who you are… The strongest artists really believe in who they are and they don’t compromise that for anybody.”
“F##k you made me cry” backstage at Hair

“I was a little choir boy. I was fat too.”
“I find myself in my hotel room after the whole day ends just laughing. Just laughing, at nothing. Just laughing.”
“I’ve had my heart broken. I’ve chased after people and had it not work out. Throughout my entire 20’s so far I’ve wanted to be in love. That’s what I want. I think everybody deserves that. And, I’ve only be in love once, so I’m still looking.”
“I have crushes on women all the time. I find women beautiful. And to be the object of desire to a woman is a great compliment.”
“Sometimes my lack of filter gets me in trouble. I have a big mouth.”
“I think I know who I am and hopefully people will like that.”
“I’m a nice rebel.”
“I’m like a fireman….. and a fire starter all at the same time.”
“I have to learn how to make things a little more internal”
“I was born that way”. (laughs)- Asked how he became so fabulous.
“I don’t get embarrassed.”
“Edgy with a smile”
Ryan- “So Adam’s gay.” Adam- “Surprise, Surprise. Did you know I’m also a singer?”
“I kind of like things dangling over my head.”
“I’m honest to a fault.”
“I had to talk myself down off the ledge.”
“That is the most precious thing I’ve ever see.” – baby Paisley video
“I’m not trying to preach to anybody, I’m not trying to spread any agenda, I’m just trying to get people up and dancing and feeling good. There’s nothing controversial about that.”
“I’m surprised that people looked past a lot of the other stuff. Maybe I suspended their disbelief and allowed them to be entertained. I think that’s what music should be.”
“My arms are not in shape. I’m just in the moment when I perform and get hot, so I take my jacket off.””

_______Lambertosophy Gems_____________
“I’m very inspired by past music. I’m inspired by history, different periods. Obviously, I love the whole glam rock thing…both in the sound and in the look and in the tone and what they were talking about. I love the sociological view of history too. The late ’60s, for example, was a time of the summer of love and kind of the whole hippie movement-exploration of social norm and what was normal and expected and what rebellious and fresh and new. I think history always repeats itself, like we all know, and I think hopefully we’re entering a time where we can kind of reflect that same sentiment of hope and love and peace.”
“I am confident in who I am and I do not let it bother me”
“For me it is about the power of the positive thought. I never hesitated to help or support the other contestants, and that made it very rewarding. The more you help each others, the more you will get in return. This experience has confirmed my belief system and I will continue to live my life that way.”
“I want to be a role model for, maybe that kid that feels like he’s a little weird or she’s a little weird. You know the kid in school that like doesn’t quite fit the mold, someone that wants to be different.”
“I vowed to be myself as much as possible. I vowed from the get go to try to be myself throughout this competition and the fact that people have backed me on that really feels good because that’s a hard thing to do — be yourself in front of America.”
“Without trying to be too cheesy or be on a soapbox, I just want to say a couple things. This is an example of believing in yourself, knowing who you are. Anybody that feels different or weird, screw it! Embrace it! Embrace each other’s differences, ok? Celebrate it! It’s cool to be different.”
“I think ‘Mad World’ is kind of symbolic, it talks about people that don’t feel like they fit in. I think ‘Change is Gonna Come’ is also symbolic in that anyone who feels oppressed can relate to that song. It’s been a civil rights anthem for a long time, and there’s all sorts of new civil rights issues that are coming up right now.”
“It’s a really, really cool thing to be able to show people that you can be yourself, and you should be proud of yourself, and you should own who you are and what you’re about, and never make apologies for it.”
“It feels really amazing to be able to try and pass that on to kids and young adults who don’t have a role model like that. It feels great because I never had a role model like that.”
“Conforming is not cool. Embracing who you are and what makes you different is actually what’s really cool … The kids that are different and out there and expressive and are bold with those choices, those are the people that grow up to be people we all want to hang out with, that become celebrities or become really successful in what they do because they believe in who they are.”

“Barrack Obama. He has inspired hope and change which has been long overdue.”-answer to the question ‘who is your American Idol?’
“I’m not trying to preach to anybody; I’m not trying to spread an agenda. I’m just trying to get people up and dancing and feeling good. There’s nothing controversial about that.”
“And the other thing that’s interesting being on Idol, it’s different than a lot of other celebrity situations because people call in and vote. So people are more invested, in a way, because they’re responsible for how you do on the show. So I think there’s also a feeling of gratitude that I want to get across. And then there’s also this partial ownership, this possessiveness that the fans feel toward all of us, and that’s interesting.”
“I don’t believe in getting discovered. I believe things happen when they’re meant to happen.. And I love being an inspiration for the world’s weirdos.”
“If you ever feel different, hold your head up high. We’re artists. We’re all crazy. And that’s good-crazy!”
“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” Jimi Hendrix- quoted by Adam
“I think it’s hard because being a dreamer isn’t always the easiest thing in the world because we have to exist in a space that is not reality. We have to exist in that ‘what if’ or ‘imagination’ world, and I think that with all the pressures of everyday life, you can constantly be thrown out of that, and it’s almost a fight to stay in that ‘dreamer’ space. My advice would be to try to find a new angle, a new perspective on something, and that’s in my opinion, the best way to take your dreams and make them come true. Find a way to be new and fresh with your ideas, and just to keep dreaming. Find your safe space that is conducive to that. Find a way to tap into that part of yourself and not be thrown out of that dreamer space. Stay on the cloud! ”
“I’m not asking to get married in your church, but you don’t have any right to tell me I can’t do it.”
“I think that’s what music is; you either love it or you hate it.”
“falling in love” (Greatest accomplishment)
“Lacking secrets really helps growth.”
“Wear it proudly and let your colours shine.”
Music has no prejudice, no color, no preference”
“Why can’t you have the experience without taking a picture of it?”
“Everybody has a right to love”

“In order to pull it off, you just have to WANT to wear it.”
“I’m a waste? If you think I’m gorgeous, I’m still gorgeous. What’s the difference?”
“The show is about finding great singers, not about finding people who are on the moral high ground.”
“Chill out with all the gossip, kiddies!”
“You should own who you are and what you’re about and never make apologies for it.”
“This is an example of believing in yourself, knowing who you are. Anybody that feels different or weird, screw it! Embrace it!”
“It is what it is”
“I didn’t lose! I just didn’t win. Half-full, half-full.”
“Dance with me and I’ll set you free!!!”
“Well, I guess they like to put on their signs, “God Hates Fa….s,” but I think God hates hate more.”

______Adam –The Comedian!_______________
“You got me all to yourself, don’t ya feel good?”It might get juicier, just you wait…. Haha”
“I’m wearing the underwear you gave me from the blue carpet” –speaking to Ellen Degeneres
“I sang Cher during Hollywood week. How didn’t you know?”
“It’s dress-up, Simon!” -response to Simon’s criticism about the long coat in Mad World
“I took too many clothes!” “I don’t know Clay. I’m glad he’s getting headlines now though, because he wasn’t before. If he wants to ride my coattails about it, good for him.”
“I will learn and then I will teach (snicker)”- regarding Belly dancing
“Contrary to popular belief, I do not do drag. I’ve done it like, two or three times for Halloween, and just because I’m wearing makeup and weird clothes does not make it drag. People, get your terms straight, all right?”
“I am single. Always looking. I am looking for you.”
“I wasn’t flammable and I didn’t go up in flames so everything’s great!” – KISS performance
“I’m like the older, evil step brother” (on being like a Jonas Brother)
“That seemed funny to me because in all honesty, I was closing my eyes and like woah, Jamie Fox is three feet from my face right now. I’m freaking out.”
“I wanna watch Katy Perry!”
“I think the pictures did a lot of the talking for me.”
“If anybody didn’t understand, had any doubts, after seeing those pictures of what my preference might be I think you need to go back to the drawing board and learn about what boys kissing boys means.”
(“Adam would you ever consider growing a Freddy Mercury mustache?” ) “I don’t think so; besides it wouldn’t come out the right way, I’m a strawberry blond; this is all smoke and mirrors”
“Did you hear [Gene Simmons] sing on the show . . . He sounded great” accompanied by an adorable and sarcastic head nod and smile.”Gene these are my boots and I’ve worn in many a party, in many a club, with many a c***tail. I think I’ll be okay, but thanks for your concern”.
“You know you’ve made it when you have a streaker”.
“Some boyfriends are pretty relieved… like okay, he likes dudes, OK!”
“I love climbing mountains, yeah, I climb every mountain and I cross every stream” (regarding No Boundaries)
“HOOPLA?” (Like what the H— is that?)-when asked what he thought about all the hoopla around him
“I don’t think he quite got it and I was like ‘well, live with it'”- regarding his Dads reaction to his clothes and makeup.
“Avocados.” what kind of food he would be.
“I’d hope people get excited about me as a food item.”
“”I should have a ‘Conceived in Puerto Rico’ t-shirt.”

“Ja- who?”-during word associations, the phrase was John and Kate.

“I like cupcakes… and dogs”
“I killed a snake in the jungle!”
“I’m really excited about my outfit”
“I love disco sticks!”
“We were driving around the block on a back lot and it was so snarly and growly and we had the top down, and I was like, ‘I want THIS car’ – no offense to the Fusion, but I need a little, like, glitz and glamour in my life.”
“I hope fans know that when I’m up on stage snarling and tossing my hair around that I’m just having a good time and playing… that I’m not really like that.”
“When people throw their underwear up onstage, it usually has me laughing. It’s flattering, it’s funny…”
“I’m tired but I’m great…I’m physically tired but emotionally and spiritually, I’m feeling love.”
“…the amount of bra and panties (thrown onstage)…I could open a Victoria’s Secrets.”

_______Adam the Strategist____________
“I am a little out there, but I’m kind of a strategist in that I knew what I could get away with and what I probably couldn’t get away with, so I tried to dumb myself down for the first couple auditions. You know, look a little more normal, dress a little bit more low key. ”
“I’m not going to do the Cheese whiz and compromise”-Mom suggested toning it down a bit
“I am not your average contestant and it took a lot of courage for people to believe in me. And the courage from the fans fed my courage. The biggest risk I’ve ever taken is going on American Idol and trying to be myself. I wasn’t going to try too hard to conform, and I knew that it could possibly not work out.”
“I’ve always been out.”
“I wasn’t ready. I was just getting used to being a figure of the public eye”
“I don’t want to be looking over my shoulder all the time, thinking I have to hide, being scared of being found out, putting on a front, having a beard, going down the red carpet with some chick who is posing as my girlfriend. That’s not cool, that’s not being a rock star. I can’t do that.”
“My strategy was to show all different sides. There’s a very fine line between giving the audience what they wanted and then also me trying to introduce stuff that they didn’t know they wanted.”
“I love Zeppelin. When we found out we could do this song, it was a happy day.”
“I like things that are different, that make you look. I don’t like to blend in. I like to stand out.”
“I’m like your boy next door who decided that he wanted to be a rebel one day. So, I’m a nice rebel.”
“This is by far my favorite of all the theme weeks and I want to go out there and kill it!”
“For me, it’s not about what happened tonight, it’s about tomorrow, it’s about what’s next.”
“The biggest risk I’ve ever taken is going on American Idol and trying to be myself. I wasn’t going to try too hard to conform.”

_______Post-Idol Gems_____________
“You learn to really depend on yourself, I think. You know, before this, most of my artistic experience had been in the theatre, and in the theatre it’s all about being told where to stand and what to say, you know, how to say it. You’re directed and choreographed and costumed. And this, this has been the first time that I’ve really gotten to have more creative control, from the inside out. Of course, I’m working with a team; it is collaborative effort, but for the most part I can make all these decisions myself. I think there is a slight misconception at home… ‘why are the producers doing that for him?’ That came from me. They have been so gracious as to indulge me when I’ve asked ‘Can I come down the stairs? Could you put really moody lighting here? Can I sit on this chair?’ I just come up with ideas and they’ve been very, very, very supportive. So, it’s been really fun to create my own performances, from the ground up.”
“Don’t get too close…..I’ll project.” -regarding the camera zooming in
“It was my pleasure, but when were you ever old?” -in response to thanks for making me feel young again
“Wear it. Get that guy liner on, smudge it, and wear it. And don’t wash it off, it looks better after it’s been on for a few days.”
“Thanks for taking the piss out of me on the show, I enjoyed it. I can take a joke, I like it. It was good. And I deserve a little bit of an eye roll every now and again. I’m kind of ridiculous. I know that.”
“You’ re put into this position and everything is happening and the only option you really have is to either take it really seriously and get screwed up by it or to shrug your shoulders and kind of laugh and be like “Whatever.” And I tend to try to always have a sense of humour about things, its just easier to deal with things that way.”
“I’m kinda in your face.”
“That was not a doozy! Oh, doozy is a good thing? I thought doozy was a bad thing.”
“Who’s this freak show”
“Owff- I gotta do something quick”
“I just wanna sing- I don’t want to represent a cause…”
“They censored it. Is that indecent? …I wasn’t embarrassed….He was embarrassed”
“That elephant is really pink.”
“I’m just being myself and the fact that people are responding to that…. it just means the world to me”
“Isn’t it fun to be cheeky?”
“Shy?” (Coy look) “ME?”
“If I played it safe, I wouldn’t be being me”.
“That’s bull, it’s not disrespectful. Johnny Cash was a rebel. Johnny Cash probably would have dug it. . . Done, done and done. Get over it. I’m not a country singer. What did you want me to do? Boot Scootin’ Boogie. . . . Electro dance remix.”
“I know the drag queen that runs it, and she hooked me up”
“I tend to try to always have a sense of humor about things. It’s just easier to deal with things that way”.
Answering the big question on America’s mind…..
“America, on June 12th, the Federal Communications Commission will require all TV stations to broadcast in digital rather than analogue signals.
If you live in Pennsylvania, you can pick up your converter box at the south Philadelphia older adult centre. Puncture the cricothyroid membrane with a knife to enter the trachea.
And, don’t forget to chill your ambrosia salad overnight.
Hook up your HDMI cables and BAM, you’re all set for the digital transition”
Mother’s Day…
“Hi Mom…. (big hug)…that feels good!! – surprised by Leila on Mother’s day
“Unconditional love and support. It made such a difference.” – what he got from Mom
“Isn’t this crazy? Isn’t this wild?” – what he says on the phone
“She’s such a show-off…such a show-off”
“Fiddler on the roof…..yah, yah, yah” – when they first felt the power of his voice
“I learned from the best:”- about Mom after she talks about all the great comments about how well Adam was raised
( and the best one)…”I love you too!”

______Rolling Stone and /20/20 Gems_______________
“That…when they told me that I was gonna get (the cover)..I was like ‘WHAT?!’ Are you freakin’ kidding me?!’ Oh my gosh, it was amazing. I said, ‘Well, who else am I gonna be on the cover with?’ Oh, just you. ‘WHAT?!”- coolest moment of his life- getting the cover of the Rolling Stone
“I was getting bitter. I was looking for something, and I wasn’t sure what it was.”

“I had a psychedelic experience where I looked up at the clouds and went, Oh!….I realized that we all have our own power, and that whatever I wanted to do, I had to make happen.”
“I’m not gonna lie – I put Kaluha in my coffee this morning”
“For a little while, I felt I was at a rave. Then I went from ‘Oh my God, who has glow sticks?’ to ‘Stick a pacifier in me, I’m done.'”
“I m going to glue rhinestones on my eyelids, b****! That’s right American Idol in platform boots. You ain’t voting anymore.”
”Is it smog that makes everything look that way?” “Or is it glitter?”
“I find it very important to be in control of this situation. I feel like everyone has an opinion of me and I want a chance to say, ‘Well, do you want to hear how I really feel about all this?”
“I’m bi-curious, not bi-sexual—I’ve made out with girls—it’ fun—who knows how far my bi-curious will go someday—-who knows who the lucky girl will be…..
“Why can’t some men have strong feminine sides? Does that make them less of a man? I don’t know why our society has such an emphasis on masculinity and femininity- it’s really gross. I don’t think you’re truly sexy until you don’t care about that.”

“I loved it this season when girls went crazy for me. As far as I’m concerned, it’s all hot. Just because I’m not sticking it in there doesn’t mean that I don’t find it beautiful.”
“A combination of like ‘OK, Matthew Ralston, I’ll be a sexy rock star as you take my picture and the fear of ‘there is a python on my crotch.’ So it was kind of a mix. It was a risky sexy.”
“I like taking risks though. It was fun.”
“Yeah, I think so. I think playing it safe is SOOOO boring.”
(Whose idea was the snake?)- “Mine…Adam and the fruit of knowledge. The idea behind the Adam and Eve thing is questioning the concept of morality and what’s right and wrong; I think it’s an interesting debate”
“Don’t they say that you dream more when there are things you aren’t attaining, that you are repressing? Well, I haven’t been having any dreams lately. Now I’m in a waking dream.”
“I get to play dress up and be a rock star. It’s fun!”
“I had an odd fascination with glitter… see, now I’m stereotyping myself”
“Maybe it will go further someday. Who’s the lucky lady?
______Kradam Gems____________
“[Kris Allen] has a good heart and a good spirit. He’s so mellow, he’s so kick-back. He and I have a lot of love with Allison Iraheta. It felt like this kind of sibling thing. Just good energy, the three of us together. Kris and I both got very protective of her. We encouraged her to pick up the guitar and take risks musically. It always felt very positive … good karma, you know? Kris doesn’t need any advice, clearly. Even though he’s really kick-back, he’s got a very strong sense of self in a non-aggressive, non-intense way. It’s cool.”
“A crush (or finding someone attractive) shouldn’t be scary”
Kris: “Bromances are in!” Adam: “Bromae”
(Pointing to Kris) “Less is more” – (Pointing to himself) “More is more”
“Even if you’re really different, there’s a way to get along. It’s about finding the common stuff. Our (Adam and Kris) goal was to bring you guys together.”
“Oh, we don’t get naked together.” –asked which one of them looked better naked
“Oh s***, they put me with the cute guy”
“I know you want me.” Kris: “that song takes on a whole new meaning with being in the room with you Adam.” Adam: “Your wife said the same thing.”
“A crush doesn’t mean that I was having, you know……[awkward]……ANYWAY”…

_______Adam Gems on Fame and the Future__________
“Here we go …” webisode #1
“It’s the whole “Slumdog Millionaire” thing, where it’s like his whole life like leads up to that moment and the only way he gets through that moment is because of all of his experiences. I went to see “Slumdog” as this was all happening and I was just in tears because I was so touched by the concept of that movie. And I wouldn’t have done what I did on the show had it not been for what I’ve gone through and my experiences in my life and what age I’m at. I wouldn’t have been that confident. I would have been second guessing myself. I would have been really busy people-pleasing as opposed to just doing what I do. It was meant to be now.”
“I just want to make cool music and wear cool clothes. It is not much deeper than that. I want to entertain people and figure out new ways to get people’s attention, keep them dancing and maybe cross over to other forms of media — maybe TV and film in the future, maybe fashion. We will see what the future holds.”
“There’s no way to ever really prepare for it. Fame is a reflection of what I’ve done. Notoriety is proof of a job well done.”
“I’ve met a lot of people that I look up to, artists that I respect. That’s been crazy. Just last night I met Usher, Enrique Iglesias and My Chemical Romance at the studio. I’ve just been meeting these artists and they know who I am now because of the show and Rolling Stone and all that, so it’s weird that they’re like ‘Hey, Adam!’ and I’m like ‘What?!’ It’s just weird to be on the same page as them, so to speak.”
“This whole experience is liberating and validating at the same time. It’s really allowing me to be the artist I’ve always wanted to be. This experience has opened up so many doors and connected me with so many amazing, talented, reputable producers and writers. That’s liberation right there.”
“I have been doing a lot of writing, actually. It’s been really exciting. I think something that people can expect from the album is that, lyrically, everything that I’m singing about is true to my life. That’s important to me, it’s something I can connect to personally. I think this is the album that’s going to be fun and exciting and sexy and also going to have positive hopeful messages.”
“I’m hopeful. I have a great opportunity right now. There are a lot of people who want to work with me that I really respect. And hopefully it works. I’m not c***y because I’ve seen a lot of guys come off this show and bomb, so I recognize that I could crash and burn. But if I play it safe, it’s not going to work, so I might as well go for it with the same intention that I had on the show.”
“Whenever I get overwhelmed or a little bit cranky, I tend to go, ‘You know what? Look how lucky you are. You got what you wanted. This is amazing. I have to remind myself from time to time. And when I do remind myself, I’m thrilled.”
“This whole experience is liberating and validating at the same time. It’s really allowing me to be the artist I’ve always wanted to be. This experience has opened up so many doors and connected me with so many amazing, talented, reputable producers and writers. That’s liberation right there.”
“I get a lot of very excited, physical women, and it’s always really sweet and it means a lot, but sometimes I get a little smothered. But I know the thing is that it’s all from the heart, and I love that. The expression is real and genuine, and that’s what matters.”
“When you are performing and the audience is screaming your name, it totally charges you up,”
“I think it’s a fair trade. It’s worth it, for the opportunities.”
“Honestly, this is what I’ve been working towards since I moved to LA after high school… I feel like I have a shot now at crossing that finish line, hopefully.”
“Nothing can prepare you for this.”
“Oh yah, it comes with the territory, man, I mean everything I’ve ever done in my entire life and I’m 27 years old, is going to get drug out, you know”
“I’ve been a small fish in a big pond for eight years”
“I can’t wait for people to hear what my music really sounds like.”
“I try to give everyone something they want, and also something they didn’t know they wanted”
“It can charge you up and make you feel like a million dollars, and at the same time it can make you feel like you got run over by a train. There is so much energy coming at you all the time. In New York, I wanted to just give everybody as much of me as I could because everyone was so supportive and showing so much love.”
“And the other thing that’s interesting being on Idol, it’s different than a lot of other celebrity situations because people call in and vote. So people are more invested, in a way, because they’re responsible for how you do on the show. So I think there’s also a feeling of gratitude that I want to get across. And then there’s also this partial ownership, this possessiveness that the fans feel toward all of us, and that’s interesting.”
“Thank you to my family and friends who’ve kept me grounded throughout this journey. Thank you to the incredible fans who have shown me so much light and love. It was all of you who made this dream come true. I’m eternally grateful.”
“Thanks first to the Universe for sending this opportunity my way and for making sure all was in alignment.”

__________About Adam Gems by others__________________________
“When God created Adam Lambert, he was showing off.”
“Glittery alien from the Planet Fierce” – Neil Lambert
“He’s been screaming at his higher register ever since he came out of me..!” Leila Lambert
“It must be good to be Adam’s father right now, huh?” Eber answered with “It’s always good to be his father.” Eber Lambert
“He’s a mystery wrapped in an enigma in a conundrum bag, that Adam Lambert.”
“I grab a Rolling Stone on the way because Adam’s on the cover, lips slightly apart doing his best “Which of your kids am I going to defile? Son or daughter?” Neil Lambert
“The way he sang the song right now.. he’s gonna knock everyone’s head off” Jamie Fox
“I don’t even know what to say about this boy…I give you points for unique..a great singer.” Randy Travis
“He’s the real deal.” Quentin Tarentino
“I was very proud of Adam’s interpretation of that song.” Smokey Robinson
“Adam’s got pipes, you know? He’s got so much range and it comes so easy—it’s like effortless” – former Guns-n-Roses lead guitarist, Slash
“I probably couldn’t help myself, that guy liner is so amazing. But he’s got an incredible voice, talent is very sexy. I love that he’s so androgynous, he just doesn’t care, has fun and wears whatever he wants.” – Rachel Wood

(When asked what young talent he’s been paying attention to, he said this season’s “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert has a special talent.) “I really hope the right people get a hold of him. I would love to see him with Queen, but the Queen vocalist would probably have me shot. But he could have stepped into Queen with that range and that emotion.”- Graeme Edge (The Moody Blues)
“I think his fans would appreciate knowing that when he sits down for a chat, he’s engaging and very modest. (Lemme tell ya, this isn’t always the case.) He was a delight.”- Darla Atlas,
“Let me also say this about Adam… forget his incredible singing ability for a second… but what an actor! He nailed his lines ON THE FIRST TAKE — complicated words, mind you — and had the sort of comic sensibility that one can only be born with. The entire room was cracking up from the guy.” Michelle Collins
“You’re gonna be responsible for next year so many men showing up wearing nail polish and eyeliner.”- Ellen Degeneres”
“..Watching in disbelief Adam Lambert’s “Ring of Fire,” the gutsiest Idol performance ever, and his “Mad World” and realizing we were witnessing a star being born.” Richard Rushfield
“His “edginess” was code enough for a values clash with conservatives. And although the additional minority stripe of his being Jewish may not have helped him in the way Kris Allen’s Christianity did, it’s unlikely that enough people even knew he was Jewish for that to have had an impact. I don’t think anyone would suggest that Lambert lost because he had less talent.” Danielle Berrin
“A good singer breathes from the diaphragm, but a great singer breathes from the soul. There’s an ethereal sound that comes from the latter, and Lambert has managed to harness it. He can dial into that enigmatic space where light meets sound and flip the switch at will, taking the listener, willing or not, right along with him to exhilarating highs and haunting lows. That is the voice of talent. Now for the other ingredients. As if conducting a musical symphony, Lambert commands his body to join his voice in perfect synchronicity, and boldly goes where no man has gone before….not this masterfully, anyway. Do you feel something vibrating?” Jennifer Maurer
“The formula was upset a bit in its eighth season — a year forever to be known as Adam’s World. Of course, we mean Adam Lambert, 27, he of the rubbery pelvis, mascara and polarizing multi octave range and classic rock god moves that all combined in a perfect pop storm to land him on the covers of Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly even before Idol crowned the safer, Disney-approved Kris Allen its winner. ” Howard Cohen, Miami Herald

“He is a role model. He is a modern day hero in an unconventional way. He makes being the geek, being the shy non-sports-jock cool. He stands for all of the choir and band and drama club geeks who were mocked all throughout their high school days. He is also a huge poster child for the Ugly Duckling who is fat and a bit awkward, unsure of himself who grows up to be completely fabulous and a true gentleman and friend. Sometimes I think you have to go thru this kind of pain to become as great as he is. He stands when standing is hard. Remarkable. And that is just his character I haven’t even talked about his talent yet” Meredith Rosser
“So is he reading his mail? I hope so. And in some ways, I hope not. It will inspire him no doubt, but all the hype could also impair his sense of reality – a reality that gave birth to the original Adam Lambert. We’ll keep writing though, and watching. We just can’t help ourselves. Did you hear that, Adam?” Jennifer Maurer
“Adam. I think he’s extremely talented …His range is through the roof. He hits notes that every singer wishes they could hit.” Chris Daughtry
“Since rocking the “Idol” stage, Adam has amassed a huge fan base that loves his funky rocker style — and the fact he isn’t afraid to be himself. Lambert came out in a June issue of Rolling Stone, making it the magazine’s top-seller this year”.
“There he is- the perfect spiritual descendent of Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Queen, Hedwig and all things gender-fluid and fabulous. He’s the gorgeousness of glam rock rising, like an iridescent glittery phoenix emerging from America’s cultural ashes. Eyeliner, black nail polish, incredible costumes, sexual ambiguity, a beautiful heart and more originality and musical mastery that we haven’t seen in many, many years”.”

I’m not a mom, but I am an aunt, and I can only imagine the pride you feel when you watch all his dreams come true!!” bebe

“I honestly believe he may be one of the greatest stars in our lifetimes, and I am jazzed thinking of how I will tell my grandchildren how it felt to see Adam for the first time on American Idol, when I was young.”

“SURREAL AND SO REAL”- Winner of the ‘Paradox of Adam’ contest by Lily

“And G-d said, “Let there be light… and glitter, and beauty, and talent. Bliss. Inspiration. Amazement. Sexiness. And a whole lotta love.” And all of these things appeared. And G-d saw this, that it was good. No, better than that. Beyond good. G-d saw that it was perfection. And, G-d called it… Adam Lambert.” SarahC63

… well there is only time for one animal in my life” Ellie loves Adam

“I would rather watch Adam Lambert sleep than the other contestants perform.”
“He could bring a garden full of dying flowers back to life with the magic in his voice.”
“I plan to buy this kid’s CD even if I go deaf between now and the time it comes out.”
“Adam Lambert just blows my mind. His version of Ring of Fire was in a league of its own. It was a combination of Jim Morrison meets Robert Plant meets Moody Blues meets Pink Floyd; they all drop acid and resurrect “The King” to perform it, a young Elvis Presley.”
“He (Adam) makes gay women straight, straight men gay, and straight women (very) confused”.
“I never thought a person I haven’t met could move me to this degree of happiness and pure freedom, especially because I’m a little young to be involved in the whole Adam phenomenon (I’m a teen). You’ve made me laugh, cry, scream, sing, dance, and become more sexually awakened that *any* girl I know! When I meet you I don’t know what I’ll say. And I will meet you someday. It’s in my heart. I think people like me are driven by the pull of fate to meet you. Thank you for making me feel something real.” ML

‘”If u are diagnosed with O.A.L.D (obsessive Adam Lambert disorder), know that there is no cure!’”

“The world didn’t know what it was missing, until Adam Lambert was born.”

“Adam Lambert’s voice can make water flow in the desert and flowers bloom in the arctic.”

“I love listening to this man speak or sing or grunt or snarl. LOL He is a brain-sexer, because that’s where it all starts. Then from there it goes everywhere.”
“But what I love about him the most is that he just is who he is. The rest all just flows out when you can be yourself.” Sweet Violet
“I am constantly impressed with Adam’s command of our language and his ease in interviews. He is able to express his thoughts clearly, quickly, and easily- that’s NOT always easy to do, given the tough questions some people throw around! I remember Ryan Seacrest (can’t remember which interview) asking a leading question about Kris and Adam rooming together. It was a nasty innuendo, I thought. Adam snapped a response back in an instant, shut Ryan up, and redirected the interview. And he did it with no malice!”
“Yes, Adam is a master communicator. He has said he talks too much, but at least when he does, it’s worth listening to!!!! Adam gets an A+ from this English teacher!!!! ” Suenomma
“I love that u call Adam a brain sexer – brains, brawn and beauty; yah he’s totally so : ) and that is why I think we are so protective over Adam. Because UNDERNEATH THE HEART is a fragile quivering soul.”
” I’m struck by the way he speaks – actually using the English language the way it’s supposed to be spoken – proper grammar and all, go figure. In the radio interview just posted tonight: “neither Kris nor I…”(a lot of people don’t get that either/or, neither/nor thing right) and …”had the opportunity presented itself…”. Not to be a grammar snob, but you don’t hear a lot of people speaking like that, and it’s very refreshing.” Lady_D-Bo
“I major in Eng Language and Literature and i am very fascinated by Adam’s vocabulary too. But his quotes are incredible too – they don’t just show his grasp of the language but his level of maturity and thinking – blew me away each time when Adam’s interviewed…there’s always some intriguing quote that enlightens us instantly in a nutshell about Adam’s world. Adamazing!!!” Leejas
“I’m an English teacher so Adam just impresses the heck out of me.”
“Phoenix rising from the ashes..”
“Adam you are not talented you are talent itself. You are not graceful you are grace itself. You are not sexy but sex itself. Never change we love you”
“Although we just love “Adam The Rock God,” it’s his Beautiful Spirit inside that truly amazes us more and more…I kind of think about it as being the glue that holds all that glitter in place.”

“Adam, you are one GORGEOUS man. And so is your boyfriend, Drake. I hope, if it all works out, that you guys live a long and happy life together. Don’t let it get ruined by obnoxious screaming fans, and stalkerish papparazzi. I love you Adam, be safe, conserve your voice, and have FUN!!! “ Love Glambert #1274

“He is the most, gifted, creative, charismatic and hard working performer we’ve seen in a very long time, so surely this completely unique gem we describe is special. He is eager to please us and we have responded with as much adulation as any entertainer can get. He is a complete surprise and no one was looking for him, how could we when we didn’t even know such a one existed? No one could have invented or even imagined Adam.”
“Whole Lotta Love is the ultimate for me too. The uber sexy rock god, strutting, sneering, lip quivering, swagger is what I love, love, love about him. If he sings Whole Lotta Love at the concert, I may faint. That song and performance rocks me to the core.”

“We love you Adam”, “Be careful Adam”, “Take care of your voice, Adam”, “You’ve given me a reason to get up every morning, Adam”, “You rock my world, Adam “I don’t care if you’re gay or straight, I love you, Adam”, “You are the sexiest man alive, Adam”, “Can’t wait until your CD comes out, Adam”, “Waiting for your live tour, Adam!” “You rocked it out onstage last night, Adam”, “I haven’t felt this way in 20 years, Adam”, “Marry me, Adam”, “Twitter me Adam”, “Friend me on Facebook, Adam”, “My mom loves you Adam”, “My brother loves you Adam”, “My boyfriend even loves you, Adam!”

“I can’t imagine a whole Adam concert – they will need a first aid station, or hose-down the audience every so often.”
“I’m leaving Saturday morning….so I won’t be here much as I have alot to do to get ready…..holy f…..I think I’m a groupie…..this new addition will be the first of 5….yup seeing that in print confirms that I’ve completely lost my mind. I will try to hold the camera as steady as possible so I can capture as much of his hotness as I can, so I can share it with all of you.”
“I told my husband he should write a Thank you letter to Adam. If you know what I mean!!!” LoveforAdam

____Adam Gems from my Brilliant Sisters at WowOwow_________
“I also enjoyed a little frisson of delight when I heard Adam pronounce “accoutrements”. French is the language of seduction, no?” Xena
“He’s brazen and I find it so appealing…it’s not that he’s full of himself…not conceited at all, it’s that he’s so comfortable with himself and his sexuality… he’s not afraid to show us. Impudent/brazen and sexy as hell!!! ” Cleo
“Why Adam, why now ? No clue … it could be that he just gives me pleasure to hear his voice and see his face, the perfect storm of my perfect man – the musical & physical ?” EKA
“Adam is the perfect person to project onto. How much fun is this? It’s so nice to have a gorgeous, sexy, talented, adorable, inspiring, brilliant wakeup call once in awhile!!!! “AB
“This young man touched a part of all of us, a little hole we didn’t know we had, and his voice and face reached right in and showered us like protons from the sun. EKA
“..Feeling Good, did it for me, too. And my life hasn’t been the same since. And, like you, too, I got a new computer in January, thinking it was time to ditch the 8-year-old one I had for a spiffy laptop and gorgeous large monitor. For some reason, I just knew I had to get these things this year….and then I knew why….in time for Adam.” NS
“I sometimes see him as a post- sexual gift from the universe, a man poised to take us into the 21st century who will rise above the prejudice and labels. EKA
“Adam ripped open a hole in our lives that we didn’t know we had, and we are having a fabulous time exploring what that means. It’s incredible to me how many of us have taken actions that we would never have dreamed possible even two months ago. We are feeling creative, writing insane erotic fantasies, designing jewelry, sprucing up our looks, feeling young and in love, and making wonderful friendships here. It’s all GOOD!!”
“It could also give buyers information about trends in real-time, faster than monthly magazines, said Jess Lee, Polyvore’s product manager. This fall, for example, watch for recent trends bubbling up on the site: exposed zippers, fingerless gloves and butterfly prints.” Is it purely coincidental, or did the inspiration come from a certain wildly compelling Idol known for accoutrements and themes that fit the above-described? He is quite the trend-setter, our Adam. ” JU

“Since the very start, it’s the pain and his struggle and his just wanting to find love and to be loved that goes straight to my heart…when he sings love ballads or songs about hurt, he’s singing about himself and to me that makes him so vulnerable and so irresistible. His beauty, his voice, his personality and his looks keep the attraction alive…but it’s how he makes me feel, that keeps me coming back for more.” Cleo
“All my concerted efforts of the past couple of weeks to rejoin the living and become a responsible, NPR-listening, work- and family-focused, upstanding citizen have just crashed and burned. I’m back in Adamania land.” JU
“There is no fighting the SEX GOD from Planet Fierce. I suspect once you’re under his spell, you’re in for life!! Oh well!” CL
“ Can’t fight the universe and Adam Lambert!! Guess we are destined for excitement, love, happiness. laughter and fun for a long time.” AB
“I wouldn’t bestow being our savior upon you – that’s a burden no one individual should have to bear; but in fact you have saved us on a day – to – day basis with your laughter, your songs and talent, your insight, and by just being you. Thank you for making our lives fun again, for making us get dressed and made up, to go dancing again, for once again screaming our lungs out at your concerts. Adam Lambert, you are a dream come true for all of us, and I certainly hope that this voyage lasts for a very long time. YOU’RE SIMPLY THE BEST!! – BETTER THAN ALL THE REST!” DG
“I think Adam’s very unattainability has made women of all ages feel it’s safe to express their love for him. They know they don’t stand a chance, but it’s not a personal rejection”. JU
“I love clever minds. I love clever, sexy, kind minds with good looking men attached even more! “XWP

_____________GEMS ABOUT THE TOUR____________________
“By the time he descended into the stage with a final shout of “I love you, San Diego!” Lambert had proved he’s the total package —- voice, charisma, confidence, star power and good looks (a striking mix of broad-shouldered masculinity and almost feminine beauty enhanced by his trademark guyliner and shimmery electric blue eye shadow).”
‘His (Danny’s) set ended and the air was nearly sucked out of the arena as almost every woman from age 2 – 98 took a preparatory breath as they awaited the appearance of the boy with the leather pants and guyliner. Looking back, those like me will remember the next moment as the moment that rendered their hearing less operative. Because as soon as the graphics appeared on the jumbo-trons indicating Adam’s arrival, the noise in the arena swelled to deafening roar. Imagine the sound that would occur if a thousand Robert Pattinsons were suddenly dropped into a swirling mass of schoolgirls and Twilight moms.” -Kelley Keltner,
“AND THEN HE ENTERED THE SPOTLIGHT. For the next few songs, I was entranced by his beauty, his bedazzled jacket, his near constant pelvic thrusts and yeah, his voice. I love me a little Adam Lambert (or a lot, I love me a lot) and this boy is not messing around, grown women were crying*, young girls were screaming at ear-piercing decibels** and I have never seen someone slip so much sexual body language into one song***. Just when we all thought it could not get more fabulous, he ripped off his leather jacket to reveal a vest, just a vest, Holy-Freaking-Magical-Moment.”
“WLL performance analysis… responding to the waves & waves of vibes sent back up to him from a female audience, high on testosterone, Adam swoons behind the mike. What an attentive lover – here he is in all his pheromonic splendour and he lets us know he’s turned on too. How many times can we watch this without going blind?” Xena Warrior Princess
“He’s incredible. I know I need to expand my list of superlatives, because he deserves so many more. His energy just radiates and rings all through the place. When he sang that last note, put his arm up and the lift started taking him away… I screamed like crazy, holding up my dorky rock hands and just not knowing what to do, because he was leaving. It was over, after such a short time. The stage was taking him away and I wasn’t done with him yet. It was exhilarating, and really distressing at the same time. But yeah, Adam Lambert is an effing Rockstar. ”
“After what seemed an eternity, the lights dimmed and the whole arena exploded into one deafening scream it almost drowned out the sound effects on the stage. Then there HE was! My knees almost buckled and I started crying. He is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. My eyes were glued to him but it was hard to see through tears that just would not stop. His voice is out of this world – crystalline pure, powerful, magnetic. “ SSH
“Halfway through his set, Adam takes off his awesome rocker jacket and exposes his arms. When he was asked if he did anything special to get his arms in shape, the modest Adam said, “My arms are not in shape. I’m just in the moment when I perform and get hot, so I take my jacket off.”
“My daughter is screaming uncontrollably and so is most of the crowd….all I can do is stare. I am totally mute. I’m burning his image into my brain…..he is breathtaking. He doesn’t walk, he struts. He begs you to watch his every move. It’s impossible to look away. He is magnetic and it’s so powerful. He is like a growling, snarling beast and it’s absolutely irresistible! I’m amazed at what he’s done to me with a sneer of his lip. I’m mesmerized. I’m taking pictures, one after another but I can’t focus on what I’m doing and to be honest, I don’t remember taking those pictures. It is so surreal. He is so close He finishes the song and I’m emotionally spent. He is going to sing more and I’m not sure if I can take it. All my daughter can say is omg, omg!! “ CQE

_________From Me____________
“Adam, you are my first and only celebrity obsession and it has been a pleasure having you on my mind constantly. You remind me about having passion, courage and living life with a positive outlook in spite of the obstacles. You show me how to be a better person through your shining example and demonstrate that being authentic and caring about others is what is most important. You also remind me about how sexy life can be. I haven’t felt like a teenager in a long time….” GB

“We talked about the “vibrations” the music brought to our bodies as we listened to Adam. We were in total agreement about the energy centres being opened. A quick discussion of the chakra energy system and it was agreed that #2 and #4 were opened instantly and now I believe that # 1,3, 5, 6 and 7 are in Adams control.”
“Adam, you rock my chakras…..Kundalini rising!!!” GB
Gloria Beth


  1. After reading all these comments by everyone, from Adam himself to all his admirers, I am at a complete loss to express the emotions welling up in this 78 year old chest! ‘Thought all that was over forever, but everything about Adam (as mentioned above) makes me feel completely overwhelmed and vulnerable and about 15!!! I have tickets for his tour in August and don’t know how I’ll live until then. Or afterward when it’s all over. Maybe it would be better to not indulge
    my obsession, but how would that be possible?? Ex-quisite pain is love like this.
    My children and grandchildren look at me like I’ve completely lost it when I try to talk to them about Adam. They say, “He’s gay!!!”. Like that’s the only thing stopping me from being with him! That really is ridiculous.
    That’s my tale and thanx for letting me express it.
    I only wish I could somehow tell these things to him. Maybe he would have the words to talk me out of it. Take care of yourself and those gor-geous pipes, sweet Angel!

  4. Oh my God you have done a good thing here! I really believe these should get published and I for one would buy the book!
    Adam is an amazing person, not just for his talent, but a genuine good guy, intelligent with sharp wit and a sense of humor to match! Those quotes just prove all of it! Thank you thank you thank you!!

  5. Thank you so much for this – it is a remarkable read – it is beautiful. I am 85 years old and hate to think that because of my age I will miss so much of Adam’s awesome career. Hopefully, his spirit will shine up in heaven too. I adore him!

  6. Helen… OMG… this is so touching. I hope that you have another 20 years or more to watch Adam blossom into the superstar he is well on his way to becoming. We know he makes us all feel young and passionate again so enjoy and thanks for the comment!

  7. This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read. I wouldn’t mind having everything he’s ever said printed in a book I could take with me to bed every night. (To READ!) I hang on every word, scour his face to learn more about him, enjoy the hell out of his humor, and his voice sends me to the most safe place I’ve ever been, even when he makes me cry my heart out…

  8. thanks to you for all the work you do for us fans ….. xoxo to you

    ah, and for Adam: he is adorable and lovable for his whole personality. I just love, love, love him

    And right today I had a good time with my colleagues at work: One of them said to me: “yesterday I watched on tv a program about the apocalypse, supposed to be in 2012. You see, Nostradamus, the Maya … I don’t know, because this ancient predictions … Do you believe, it might happen ??” And I said: “No, and there is no need to be afraid. Because the title song of the movie “2012” is “Time for miracles” and Adam Lambert sings it, and he won’t let it happen”. They stared at me “What ????” and then we all smiled; they know how much I admire and care for Adam (since I have about 140 pictures of Adam, Tommy and Glam Nation Tour as screensaver on my computerscreen …).

    Yes, so big is my trust in Adam ****xoxo to him

  9. Yah.. no worries about 2012 as long as Adam sings to us!

  10. I do have more… I did start book 2 and I will post it really soon. Adam quotes is where I started and I love everything about the way he speaks… and pretty much everything else too..

  11. This is an amazing compilation which makes me feel so proud. I can’t think of anything much to add to the comments above since they express my feelings so clearly. Adam is my obsession, my hobby, my muse, my sanctuary, one of my most important inspirations and the second man in my life. (My husband doesn’t mind as he gets the benefits!) I just wish I could get my non Adam fan friends and family to read this. Thank you for your tireless labour of love. I’m looking forward to your book. ❤

  12. OMG, i knew i shouldnt have clicked on this!! I have laundry all over the vacume is in the middle of the room dinner isnt made!! And i dont care!!!!!! This was so much fun to read!! This young man has brought so much joy to my otherwise not so fun life. I have one child that left for college 3000 miles away from home a couple of monthe before AI S8 started. Then an angel walked into the audition room and saved me. I would be on anti depressants for sure without him in my life.The fact that i now also have many amazing friends i would have never met if not for Adam is just icing on the cake!I love every word Adam has ever said, but on of my favorites is when he told the ladies on the View that his dreidle spins the other way!! So cute, hope you can include that in part 2! Thanks to everyone thet helped put this together!! Rema

  15. Wow! What deeply personal reading by all who contributed. I am so lucky that my husband also loves Adam. He knows what i feel about Adam without taking anything away from him. In fact, like so many people state, he does get the benefits. You know :)! Have to get the book. Thanks so much!

  16. I think this is my favorite post from this blog, Adam is such a cool, nice, funny, and sweet person, and weird. But I LOVE weird! It’s so cool how he is himself all the time, not sugar coating things and stuff. I hope I get to meet him when he does his next tour. 🙂 I love the ”Kradam Gems” and comidic quotes, hilarous! And how long did this take, the post. (Sorry for any bad spelling.)

  17. Wow, this is fantastic! Thanx for making this!

  18. Wow…I hear what you’re all saying, feel what you’re all feeling and am sooo glad I’m not the only one who is completely obsessed by this beautiful, naturally talented, gorgeous man….I love everything about him and find it so funny that 2 months ago I’d never even heard of Adam…I am eternally grateful to my husband who got tickets for the Queen and Adam Lambert concert on July 12th this year….my life has not been the same since…his amazing vocal range, awesome stage presence and refreshing openness has me completely hooked. I feel like a teenager gin! Go Glamberts, and love u Adam! Xx

  20. After reading this over and over I can’t even sleep anymore. It’s true!! What I think I may have discovered..about his song MAP.. is that the song was actually written about himself. Just an amazing person. You have said it all..there are no more words to say except I too love him to death.
