IDOL ADAM’S A DARK HORSE
The What Do You Want From Me singer told me: “There are songs on the album about me rebelling against society and saying ‘f*** you, I’ll do what I want’.
“Cuckoo is about me acknowledging I’m insane and celebrating that fact. “And Shady is a sleazy, disco funk about cruising for sex, so it will be interesting to see how Middle America interprets that.”
But a loved-up Adam admitted there’d be no more cruising now he’s met boyfriend Sauli Koskinen, adding: “I’m so happy to be in a committed relationship.
“I haven’t had many relationships. I’ve seen and slept with a lot of great people but I’ve always wanted to find someone to be in love with and now I’ve found it I’m holding on tight.”
The venue was tiny and very fancy (...with free wine \o/ ) only about 50ish people there and was completely full. I was worried that being a ~showcase full of media the crowd might be kind of crappy and more interested in the freebies at the bar, but as soon as Adam came on the atmosphere was just as electric as any GNT shows I've been to (...but minus the screaming Glamberts with their cameras at the front) - lots of media fanboys were getting really into it and singing along \o/
Set was same as Austria show, vocals totally flawless. Adam sat on a stool for most of the set but stood up and shook his thing to Trespassing, which is sooooooo good live and even acoustically you can tell it's a Pharrell song, beat is super-danceable. OOL was so haunting, sang wrong words in 1st verse of WWFM but idt anyone noticed. The acoustics of the room & sound system were way better than some of the other venues I've seen Adam at (Shepherds Bush Empire sound was SHIT) anda pro FILMED THE WHOLE SET
you're welcome :) i didn't watch all the Austria vids, but from what i did watch the London crowd was way better. there were a few ppl sitting at tables around the outside but the majority were standing around the stage & seemed to be getting into it - would say Trespassing got the best reaction but none of the songs felt ~flat
Adam was doing the whole networking thing and talking to everyone, didn't want to bug him so just had quick chat & goodbye before we left. spoke to some media ppl afterwards & all said great stuff about Adam & sounded generally positive about his UK promo and what a nice guy he is :DDD tried to get some gossip out of the Flaunt mag guy (...who was pretty hot) about the shoot, but he would only let on that it was 'incredible' and 'different'

There are songs for staying strong, even if someone says that you're outside and you are not welcome, the songs of pure, honest love of discovery, and the night life and fun. Still, even fun songs can be dark moments.

“To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest”
Within each person exists the potential for great light and great darkness. This duality of dark/light (a slightly less judgemental derivative of good versus evil) has been explored by artists since the beginning of time and remains a fascination to many. It’s a dichotomy that is explored everyday in music, in television, in film and in literature. Where balance is always the goal when light and dark collide, imbalance tends to be it’s nature which sets up the idea of an ongoing internal power struggle.
With Adam Lambert’s latest music video for “Better Than I Know Myself”, the gorgeous lead single from his upcoming 2012 album: “Trespassing”, he and director Ray Kay explore this eternal inner struggle that in some capacity we all face everyday.
All I know is one thing for sure: It’s a good thing Adam got his dark side in check, before any more delicious pommegranates got hurt. Oh, and…
“Better Than I Know Myself” is pure Pop Heaven. The best video of Lambert’s career to date and one of the best so far in 2012!
