Adam Lambert spoke with MTV about the making of his “Time For Miracles” music video during the American Music Awards press conference this week. Here’s what Adam had to say about his role in the music video.
“[The video] was really performance-driven. It was really about the lyric content and the emotional guts of the song,” Lambert told MTV News on Tuesday (October 13) in Los Angeles.
But given that the tune is being used in a Roland Emmerich-helmed disaster flick, fans should expect a doomsday element to the clip as well. “There were a ton of extras on the set. What they were doing is they were staging scenes reminiscent of what happens in ’2012,’ ” Lambert said.
Specifically, the “American Idol” rocker pointed to one sequence in the video where he sings calmly while chaos surrounds him. “I’m just walking through looking straight at the camera singing the song, and there’s a riot going on around me — people being tossed in front of me, looting, you know, people being arrested,” Lambert described. “That was pretty wild, to try to stay focused on the song while that was happening. But we had fun. It was a good day.” by Jim Catiello, MTV.com
