Adam Lambert tweeted yesterday, “On my way to the THIS IS IT premiere with my lovely date Miss Katy Perry!! We are Dressed!”
Here’s what Adam Lambert had to say about Michael Jackson during an interview on the red carpet. “Michael Jackson raised the bar so high that all of us of us are just looking at it like this. I think everybody has said that over the last twenty or so years. He fused music together, pop, rock, R&B, he didn’t pick one genre. He didn’t conform with the way he dressed, with the way he performed, he was his own guy and I’m very inspired by that attitude.”
Adam Lambert talks with Access Hollywood about his inspirations for his album cover and about Michael Jackson’s “This Is It”.
Adam Lambert has revealed that it was a host of music legends helped inspire the glam look on the cover of his upcoming album, “For Your Entertainment.”
“I’ve loved David Bowie since I was a kid [and] artists like Michael Jackson, Prince [and] Mick Jagger,” Adam told Access Hollywood’s Tony Potts at the Los Angeles premiere of “This Is It” on Tuesday night. “There’s a lot of male rock stars in history that have kind of played with androgyny and I [am] just fascinated by that look so I wanted to do something like that for the album cover.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Adam unveiled the cover on his official Web site on Tuesday. The image shows the “American Idol” Season 8 runner-up with colorful make up and a leather-gloved hand cradling his face.
Beyond simply the cover, Adam said he is thrilled to be releasing the effort – his first official album of post-“American Idol” material – on November 23 via 19 Recordings/RCA, but he told Tony he only just finished picking the songs.
“I’m so excited,” Adam said. “We just came up with the final track listing [on Monday] — made our final selection on songs. It’s all happening… I can’t believe it. I’m so lucky.”
And the raven-haired singer from San Diego is still singing the praises of the show that gave him an opportunity to reach out to millions each week earlier this year. Adam said the next step, however, is standing on his own two feet.
“’American Idol’ is the most amazing opportunity for an artist… It’s a platform, it’s an opportunity. You compete well on the show and then you have the chance at a record deal and it helps launch your career,” Adam raved. “I wouldn’t be anywhere without that show, but now that the show is over… you kind of have to pull out the reigns and do your thing. Now it’s up to me to just try to keep entertaining people and hopefully keep everybody’s interest.”
Adam attended last night’s “This Is It” premiere with a date – his pal and fellow singer Katy Perry – but before heading in he told Tony he hoped to really understand Michael better as a performer by watching the nearly two-hour movie.
“I just want to get a glimpse of his creative process,” Adam said. “I’ve always been a Michael Jackson fan, but part of what made him so alluring is that he was kind of mysterious. [You] didn’t get to see behind the scenes that much, with the exception of that ‘Thriller’ behind the scenes documentary which I was obsessed with as a kid.”
And with “This Is It” finally hitting theaters today, Adam said what he’ll miss most about the entertainer is his artistry.
“[I’ll miss] his individuality and [the] freedom that he had in expressing himself,” Adam said. “There’s nobody like him. There hasn’t been since, there wasn’t before. He was his own unique brand of entertainer and I respect and admire how original and individual that was.” Access Hollywood
Laura Saltman’s interview with Adam Lambert yesterday during the AMA press conference is the perfect compliment to Lyndsey Parker’s interview with Rob Cavallo. Now we have a producer’s and an artist’s prospectives. It is very interesting to hear Adam Lambert talk from his personal viewpoint and experience about creating his debut album and the support he has received from RCA/19E. Adam is full of enthusiasm and when he talks about his music, it’s contagious!
I also enjoyed hearing Adam describe his first experience announcing the AMA nominees and talking about his ideas for what will surely be an astonishing live performance of his single on the 2009 American Music Awards on November 22nd. Adam wants to put on a show and I personally can’t wait! Adam also squashes some rumours on twitter about touring with Lady Gaga and appearing on Saturday Night Live.
At the end of the interview, Laura Saltman informs us that she has some big news about Adam Lambert that can’t be shared until next Tuesday. I have to wonder what could be so exciting that it almost takes her breath away. Well, we’re talking about Adam Lambert here, so anything is possible!

Adam Lambert was interviewed by Nancy O’Dell which aired in a two part series this week on Access Hollywood. Even if you saw the interview on the show, don’t miss this uncut extended version supplied by Access. It’s a totally different interview when you can hear everything Adam has to say in context which has not been edited for time allotments on a television show.
The interview takes places in a casual setting, one of Adam’s favorite stores, LA’s American Rag. We all know how much Adam loves shopping. Adam has a great sense of humour and he always handles any question with ease. What I really enjoy, is Adam’s unique way of expanding on his answers to give you more insight as to why he feels the way he does. That’s one of the benefits of watching this unedited version of the interview.
