Next week's American Idol result show will be graced with the presence of one of the show's most memorable performers - Adam Lambert!
What makes the news even more amazing is that Glambert will be doing something a little different this time around. He's poised to perform an acoustic version of his new song Aftermath. So, that is to say, he is turning down the glam for this jam.
Should be interesting! Make sure you tune in!
Then, after you've seen it live, head on over to iTunes and download the track for a good cause. A portion of the proceeds will go to support The Trevor Project.
Inspired! Such an important group to give to back to.
When the two men walked out onto the stage at the ceremony, viewers at home only saw them engage in a brief dance before the camera jumped to an extended, awkward shot of Penelope Cruz - and that's because in actuality, the two men - who are actually close friends in real life - shared a little comedic mouth action!
ABC has refused to comment on the issue, and we think that it's frankly pretty shitty! For a network that airs a show like Brothers & Sisters, we have no idea why they continue to censor this sort of thing (anyone remember the Glambert debacle?)
Such an unbelievable shame, especially after the events of this past year. Get it together, guys.
For those of you who missed Adam Lambert's Glam Nation tour - Shame on you! It was a spectacular show! What the hell were you doing that night that was soooo important, anyway? Doesn't matter, no excuse!
Nah, we're just playin' with ya! It's all good. But you did miss a really great show and though it won't really compare to seeing him live, Glambert's provided all you fans with the second best thing.
On March 22nd, Adam is releasing a CD/DVD combo set, put together from footage and recordings from one of his live shows! The CD will include 12 tracks, such as If I Had You and Whataya Want From Me, while the DVD will highlight performances from Adam's stop in Indianapolis on the Glam Nation Tour!
Faboosh! We so want to relive that shiz! You should want to too!
If you're interested, you can go to his website and pre-order the set now!
And he doesn't think anyone else should be either.
Last night, Adam Lambert took to his Twitter to comment on what we assume must've been his first viewing of an episode of Teen Mom.
Needless to say, he was not amused. First, he tweeted out this message to his followers:
This Teen Mom show on MTV is so depressing. I know it's "real life" but shouldn't there be programming that inspires kids to shoot higher? #glorifyingwhitetrash
Now, we couldn't agree more with him - we've always said that this show sends a wrong message to kids - but a number of his followers gave him some backlash about his hashtag. So, Glambert had to follow up his comment with WENN.]
Here's what Lambert had to say about his upcoming album:
"There is going to be an acoustic CD. I don't have an exact release date. Probably around Thanksgiving time — November, December. We went around Europe in the earlier part of this year, and here [in Australia], and we did a lot of promo."
More from Lambert:
"And so I had Monty, my guitar player, and my drummer at the time - and we just did very stripped-back versions of the songs… and then we also recorded some of the actual stuff from the Glam Nation tour. So it's going to be a mix of both."
We're def curious to hear what our Glambert will sound like when he goes acoustic.
Adam Lambert is set to be the subject of the next E! True Hollywood Story, which premieres November 21st!
Here are some of the HIGHlights of his interview:
On his family:
“I’m very fortunate to have parents that recognized that I was different and recognized how I was special. They didn’t ever try to box me in.”
On traveling Europe and performing on cruise ships:
“I was exploring my sexuality a lot more aggressively. I was living a rock star lifestyle. I tried a lot of things – it was a big eye-opener for me.”
On his fans:
“My fans have been really supportive of my choice to be open and upfront about my sexuality and my lifestyle. I have come from the belief that hiding something from people and manipulating what they think of you is far more offensive and disrespectful than just being upfront and being who you are.”
We're very curious to hear what else he has to say - especially about some of the more public hurtles he's had to overcome! He never shies away from telling it like it is, for which we have the utmost respect!
What do U think?? Will U be tuning into the Glambert's E! True Hollywood Story??
