Adam Lambert Headlines Miami Beach Gay Pride

Written by Scott Holland on April 10 2013

AdamLambert-bannerAmerican Idol has been part of pop culture for the last 12 years and has introduced us to many talented singers who have gone on to become worldwide phenomena’s. However, it is my opinion, that the best singer they ever had on American Idol (ok, I admit it I am a AI junkie) was Adam Lambert. Imagine my surprise when I found out that not only is he an incredibly gifted artist, but a really nice, down to earth, person as well. He made me feel like I was just chatting with my buddy. Stardom has clearly not changed the wonderful human being Adam is. It was a real pleasure to do this Hotspots exclusive Interview just days before he appears as the headliner at Miami Beach Gay Pride.
AdamLambert-pic1At what age did you know you loved music and when did you first realize you wanted to be a singer/recording artist?
I was doing musical theater growing up and when I was 14 I got a solo and I realized I might be good at this. At that point I realized I would probably be in the entertainment business as a career, but I didn’t see myself as a recording artist till I was in my 20’s.
Who were your inspirations/mentors in life and in the music industry?
There were a couple growing up: Alex Urban and Lynn Broils, and now a small circle of friends in Los Angeles.
What made you audition for American Idol?
When I started getting into recording and writing I realized it was more difficult to break into as a 27 year old gay guy in musical theater. I thought getting on TV was a great move and it worked...YAY!
In your opinion, what was your defining moment on Idol?
Mad World is what people seem to think, as it connected with a lot of people. My personal favorite was a Whole Lot of Love by Led Zepplen, as it had never been on the approved song list before I sung it.
AdamLAmbert-pic2How did it feel the first time you heard your song on the radio?
It was bizarre and completely exciting. It was a surreal experience and very validating.
How did it feel to go back and be a mentor on Idol?
That was really cool and I took it as a big compliment. I like to help people and I definitely have a lot of opinions...LOL!
You have toured all over the world, what has been your favorite gig and favorite city?
Hard to say, but Australia and Asia are awesome. Also, Paradiso in Amsterdam is an amazing venue to play.
You have been on so many magazine covers, what has been your favorite and why?
I would have to say Rolling Stone, because it’s Rolling Stone. Detail’s was a cool shoot as well.
You have such a unique fashion style, where did it come from and how would you describe it?
I honestly don’t know how to categorize it. It’s definitely kind of a rock and roll attitude with a modern avant garde twist.
You have given so much of your time and money to charity. First, thank you, and second what drives you to give back?
I feel like it’s my responsibility. I have a fabulous lifestyle so it important to turn it around and give back. When I highlight a cause my fans are so great they take off with it. Its Karmic balance!
How does it feel to be a Gay Icon?
It feels good and I am complimented and flattered by it. I try and take the role on with as much care and poise as I possibly can.
AdamLambert-pic3It was just announced that you will be receiving the GLAAD Davidson/Valentini Award in May, how exciting is that? (Promoting equal rights in the gay community)
I am really excited for the awards show in San Francisco. GLAAD is expanding and making a lot of cool changes. It’s amazing to be a part of it.
What do you do for fun and what would people be shocked to know about you?
I am taller then everybody thinks I am. I like going out and talking to people. Just last week I went out and met friends at a bar in West Hollywood.
What should Miami Pride expect from your performance?
Expect a lot of energy. I am bringing 2 of my dancers who were just on tour with me and we are going to throw it down.
What’s ahead for Adam Lambert?
I have a couple of things brewing with my great management team. I do have a new recording project in the works. After that, I want to see what else, other than music, I can experiment with.
