Adam Lambert attended the 2012 Premiere for Sony’s end of the world Sci-Fi disaster film, which was appropriately held on the black carpet. Adam looked spectacular in his ultra fabulous studded jacket.
When Adam Lambert interviewed with MTV he said, “I really feel honored that they came to me and asked me. I think it’s obviously a risk on their part because this was before any sort of album had been completed or hardly even started. So for them to ask me, it shows faith. It really made me feel good and gave me a lot of confidence.”
Adam Lambert told ET, “You know it feels really amazing. I’ve never been part of a feature film before, the soundtrack I think is going to be wonderful. I’m really kind of apprehensive about hearing my song at the end of the movie. It’s going to be pretty surreal.”
In this clip from maximotv.com, Adam Lambert talks about Sony asking him to sing “Time For Miracles” for 2012, what he would do if he knew the world were ending tomorrow, and where he plans to be on December 21, 2012.

How Hollywood dresses for a disaster
As for Adam, this studded ja-a-a-a-a-a-acket was eye-catching, even by his platform bootie standards. But I loved it — as I do everything he wears, does, says, sings, applies
Hot off the press!! Lyndsey Parker visited 19 Entertainment offices today to listen to three of Adam Lambert’s songs from his debut album titled, “For Your Entertainment”. Lyndsey describes her experience, as only she can, where you are guaranteed to get a real feel for what’s coming our way on November 23rd!
Okay, dear readers, please excuse any typos in the following blog entry. I am to be excused, since my brain is so boggled after getting to visit the 19 Entertainment offices and privately preview three Adam Lambert songs from his upcoming superglamtastic and very aptly titled debut album, For Your Entertainment (out November 23). My black-fingernailed fingers are quivering in almost too palsy-stricken a manner to type, but at the same time I am too excited about the audio glitterbombs that have been blasted directly into my unsuspecting ear canals to wait until I’m fully coherent to share my giddy thoughts. I’d be waiting a good long while, really.
Yes, the music was THAT good, people. It was EXACTLY the extraterrestrial electro-opus I hoped and dreamed it would be. You know how the Glamerican Idol recently told Entertainment Weekly that his album would sound “as if a ’70s time-capsule blasted off into space and you’re watching it through a holographic filter”? Well, yeah, that sums it up pretty awesomely; I honestly don’t know if I can actually top such brilliant wordage. Perhaps Adam should just have my job…if he weren’t so busy reinventing the pop wheel, being fabulous, making plans for world domination, daring to dance in the path of greatness, etc.
Now, I know some fans (including myself, to some degree) were thrown a curveball by “Time For Miracles,” Adam’s classic-rock-leaning, Aerosmithian 2012 power-ballad that didn’t seem all that spacey or holographic, to be honest. Certainly that song especially appealed to Adam fans partial to his Idol performances of hoary perennials like Zep’s “Whole Lotta Love,” U2′s “One,” Aerosmith’s “Cryin’,” and Steppenwolf’s “Born To Be Wild,” but it was hardly the “rock-pop-electronic-dance thing” Adam once titillatingly promised.
However, Adam Lambert is a complex man with a multiple musical personality, and so I can tell you all, based on the three tracks I heard, For Your Entertainment sounds NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING, like “Time For Miracles.” These freaky-deaky songs, in all their wondrously neon-lit, mirror-balled, future-shocked, robot-rockin’ glory, almost don’t even sound like they were recorded by the same artist, the same human being…except for the fact that that voice is unmistakable, of course.
The time for miracles really has arrived now, in the fierce form of these sneak-previewed tracks:
“Entertainment” – The default title track and statement of intent, masterminded by Dr. Luke (Katy Perry) and Claude Kelly (Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson), Adam opens this one up, Rocky Horror-meets-Robbie Williams-style, with the audacious declaration: “I’m here for your entertainment!” And he ain’t kidding. This is an ultra-caffeinated party-starter (imagine if Mika, Sam Sparro, and Kevin Rudolf had a threesome that resulted in the conception of a glittery alien baby…if you dare), and it’s just begging to be remixed by everyone from Calvin Harris to the Neptunes to Justice–even though it sounds like a shiz-hawt remix already, as is.
“Winners” – A slinky, sexy, salacious dance-rock grinder with a keening, near-orgasmic vocal reminiscent of Adam’s watershed “Ring Of Fire” performance, this Rob Cavallo-produced cut cracks open in the middle like a giant whitechocolatespaceegg to reveal a colossal, fist-pumping, Gary-Glittery chantalong chorus that seems lifted straight out of “We Will Rock You 2: Electric Boogaloo.” So my guess is Queen’s Brian May will be impressed by this massive masterwork, too. A winner, indeed.
“Music Again” – Okay, this is the song, also produced by Rob Cavallo, largely responsible for my current lack of coherence or composure. The minute this glammy tour de force forced its way out of the 19 Entertainment office’s speakers, it was so white-hot I was instantly reduced to a puddle of melted spandex and runny eyeliner. A falsetto gang chorus like something off a lost Sweet outtakes album, squalling guitar riffs, pumping “Funkytown” beats…my head was pretty much exploding at this point, but I managed to hold my cranium together long enough to turn to a nearby 19 employee and jokingly state, “This sounds like the Darkness, if the Darkness were remixed.” To which the employee answered, “That’s funny you say that, because this song was actually written by [legendarily unitarded Darkness frontman] Justin Hawkins, and that’s Justin on guitar.”
Please read that above sentence again closely, people, and allow the full weight of its awesomeness to sink in. Adam Lambert + Justin Hawkins. ADAM LAMBERT + JUSTIN HAWKINS! Best. Collabo. Ever. Two of the most righteously rockin’ and elastically vocal-corded rock gawds of the past 10 years, two of this decade’s lone keepers of the glam-rock flame, together at last. As a diehard Darkness fan, I still believe in a thing called love…and I loved this song so much that at this point in the listening session, what was left of my poor throbbing head exploded, and shards of my caved-in skull went flying in all directions across the 19 office like the debris from a busted piñata. I apologize to the 19 office’s evening cleaning crew in advance. But hey, I could not help it. Let me state this again, just to be clear: Adam Lambert + Justin Hawkins. Such a skull-shatteringly awesome duet even deserves a new name-smash: Hawkbert. Or maybe Lamkins. Yesssssss.
Wham, bam, thank you Madam, for the glam. I can’t wait to hear (and write about) more, if my head can take it…Preview Alert!: Reality Rocks’ Adam Lambert Listening Session by Lyndsdey Parker
Mikael Wood from Entertainment Weekly joined Adam Lambert in the studio to talk about Adam’s debut album and hear “Music Again” first hand. To read the full article, pick up your copy of Entertainment Weekly, dated 10-23-09 which is in stores now.
Adam Lambert describes three of his new songs to give us a sneak peak of his new music.
In The Studio with Adam Lambert
An early preview of three new songs.
“What Do You Want From Me?” (written by Pink and Max Martin) “It works on a relationship level, but I also relate to the sense of talking to the public. Like ‘This whole thing’s a little freaked out, but please have faith in me, because I won’t disappoint you.’”
“Strut” (written by Kara DiGuardi and Lambert) “It’s Gary Glitter/T. Rex-type thing with an empowerment lyric. You’re not going to find love and happiness unless you let your hair down and strut your stuff.”
“Loaded Smile” (written by Linda Perry and Lambert) “It’s a bit dark with all the vocals in falsetto. It feels like you’re floating in space.” by Mikael Wood, Entertainment Weekly.
We’ve got some information from Gil Kaufman from MTV about Adam Lambert working with Lady Gaga earlier this week. Adam has mentioned during many interviews that he would love to work with Lady Gaga. What an incredible opportunity for Adam!
Adam Lambert Confirms Collaboration With Lady Gaga
“Yes it’s true: I spent yesterday in the studio w the insanely talented and creative Lady Gaga recording a song that she wrote! I love her,” Lambert tweeted.
Ever since Lady Gaga appeared on an “American Idol” results show this spring, fans have begged the two to collaborate. Just last week, the “Idol” rocker dismissed rumors that he would be joining Gaga on her Monster Ball tour. News of an alleged Gaga/Lambert duet, however, spread on Monday, when songwriter Ruth-Anne Cunningham tweeted that she’d dropped by a recording session where the two artists were working together. (A publicist for Lady Gaga would not comment when asked about it by MTV News yesterday afternoon.)
On his Twitter, Lambert revealed that the hookup was not just some experiment, but that Gaga came armed with music she’d crafted specifically for the glam-rock-loving singer. “Gaga wrote the song a while ago, and she thought it would be a good fit for me,” he wrote. “It’s a solo track. I feel so honored and lucky to be asked.
“Gaga just gets it, ya know?” he added. A spokesperson for Lambert could not be reached at press time to confirm if the song, whose title was not revealed, will be included on his upcoming major label debut, For Your Entertainment, out November 23.

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
“Time For Miracles” Music Video On The Big Screen
Lambert is especially happy about where fans will be able to see the “Time for Miracles” video: the big screen. “The ’2012′ trailer that we put together with the ['Time for Miracles' music video] will be premiering at the Michael Jackson film,” Lambert revealed to MTV News, referring to a special trailer that will run before the upcoming documentary “Michael Jackson’s This Is It.” by Jim Catiello, MTV.com
Given the fact that Michael Jackson’s documentary ‘This Is It’ and Adam Lambert’s “Time For Miracles” will both release worldwide, it’s a perfect fit. Just to give you an idea of the potential viewing audience for “Time For Miracles” music video, I’ve included some stats about MJ’s ‘This Is It’ ticket sales.
Among the cities with the strongest sales are Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston and New York. Records were also set in Japan, where more than $1 million in tickets were sold on the first day they were available. In London, fans bought more than 30,000 tickets on the first day, eclipsing the advance interest in the “Harry Potter” and “The Lord of the Rings” films, which were wildly popular in Britain. Record sales were also reported in Holland, Sweden, Belgium and New Zealand, MTV.com reports.
It was also reported, while online sales were high, fans also lined sidewalks waiting for tickets in Paris, Bangkok and Munich, Sony Pictures said. “Michael Jackson’s This Is It” Breaks Ticket Sales Records Worldwide
