[personal profile] lexzilla
So remember when I asked you guys about Adam Lambert and then some time later posted that while over 50% of you guys loved him, 20% of you had never heard him sing, but loved his pretty \o/, and another 20% of you didn't know who he was? And then I wrote that "I will be looking to rectify this in the near future"? Which I'm sure you were all very excited about, but maybe secretly hoped I was lying because oh man you don't really care :P

Well this is now the near future and this is my proselytizing for Adam pimp post of glory, or it's some links and you tube clips. Whatever.


LOTS OF DIFFERENT WAYS TO FIND OUT ABOUT HOW AMAZING ADAM LAMBERT IS, SO YOU TOO CAN BECOME CRAZY OBSESSED AND FLAIL ALONG WITH ME [IF YOU AREN'T ALREADY]

This is Adam. He is pretty.



In fact that is him being pretty in People magazine's Most Beautiful people issue. They can say that because it's true.

I could ramble on here about Adam's prettiness some more and tell you all about how awesome he is, but I don't need to put in the hard work because someone has already done that in a far more entertaining fashion then I could ever manage. So go here and read this brilliant Adam primer by [livejournal.com profile] bexless.



Adam is not famous for being pretty. He is famous for SINGING LIKE A FREAKING SINGING GENIUS and for being a gay mainstream artist which a lot of press still can't seem to get over. So Adam sung in LA for 8 years or so, being amazing while a lot of people failed to notice. then he went on American Idol AND TROLLED THAT SHIT and a lot of people did notice.

I'd never read Television Without Pity's recaps before, but the guy who did the American Idol write-ups seems to have a knack for explaining Adam. If you want to read the reviews, look for season 8. Otherwise here are some choice excerpts of him experiencing Adam.

"He's like if Ziggy Stardust and Cyndi Lauper had a very magical, very gay baby with an unbelievable range and the ability to shoot glitter and cocaine and entire battalions of Pussycat Dolls out of his hoo-hah."

"But his voice is good, and can do backflips and your laundry at the same damn time, which is impressive."

"It is... I hate this, because he makes me talk like Paula because people words don't work for things that are essentially otherworldly, so every week it's difficult to describe without resorting to these weird labored metaphors. So -- beyond saying that the Jeff Buckley vocal resemblance gets stronger every week and somebody needs to mention that already -- like... It's sort of like what if that movie Queen Of The Damned were not only real, but interested in slipping you a roofie and selling you on the black market. He screeches out some kind of artsy orgasm and nearly pulls his shirt up over his head, and then just starts wailing like some forgotten homosexual Greek myth about sailors that never come home. It's... Totally awesome. Of course. I feel weird and crazy, and entertained. Those sudden register shifts used to freak me out with Jeff Buckley too, like, "And now I am a lady... And now I am a dude again." I can't imagine how uncomfortable that must have been for lots and lots of people."

"He sings it right at that sweet spot at the place where his voice is high but still strong, and then all the falsetto is completely unscreechy. It's understated and confident, and very beautiful. Ethereal, that's the word you're going to be hearing about this."

So here's some videos of Adam singing before he became famous. In lots of different styles. so you can't say there won't be anything you like :P

VOCAL RUNS MASTERCLASS

EMOTIONAL BALLAD

ROCK

BROADWAY
[HAHAHA WORST MUSICAL EVER WITH VAL KILMER]


So then he went on Idol and was awesome some more. [livejournal.com profile] no_detective wrote a brilliant introduction to Adam's Idol performances, which I agree with because I too DO NOT LIKE THAT SHOW BUT NOW KINDA LOVE IT FOR GIVING ME ADAM. Arrgghh. Check it out here because it's funny and informative and contexty and a fascinating read.

You can watch a lot of Adam's Idol performances here or download them all here thanks to [livejournal.com profile] cultureslut1.
 
After Idol, Adam released his album which is fun and an electro-pop-rock hybrid that is not my usual taste at all BUT HIS TALENT TRANSCENDS GENRE [lol that sounds pompous - even more so if you imagine it in movie trailer voice-over style] and I love it and you can buy it here [I've linked to the UK version because it has more bonus tracks - unfortunately, it does not have the "gay gay gay gay yay" cover that the American one does].

I can't embed the official videos, but here are easily clickable links.
For Your Entertainment [FEATURING CORSET WEARING CANE WIELDING ADAM]
Whataya Want From Me [FEATURING PRETTY EMO ADAM]
If I Had You [POSSIBLY THE HAPPIEST THING EVER AND FEATURING TOP HAT WEARING ADAM]

Currently Adam is entertaining audience with live shows across America on his GLAM NATION tour. Live Adam is EVEN BETTER then studio ADAM and I can say that with certainty because I witnessed it a few months ago and FLAILED accordingly.

LIVE ADAM DOES THINGS LIKE THIS:

IMPROVISED ACOUSTIC VERSION OF WHOLE LOTTA LOVE

AND SINGS LIKE THIS

And he also does the stage gay with his bassist Tommy, but it's different and more awesome because Adam is actualfax gay and the place where he played it up the most was WASHINGTON DC because he is clever like that :)


HE ALSO LIKES TO PLAY WITH HIS PENIS WHEN PERFORMING \o/ BECAUSE PERFORMING MAKES HIM 'HAPPY'
His cock almost has it's own level of fame at this point. Try googling 'glambulge'...


Here is a fan video of Adam's hips in action. WARNING: YOU WILL BE STUCK WATCHING THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

[livejournal.com profile] mistresscurvy  wrote an excellent piece of meta on the diversity of Adam's band and dancers here. Yes, Jews and gentiles, blacks and whites, gays and straights. They're their own rainbow <3333

There are lots of women at Adam's shows and [livejournal.com profile] no_detective has written insightfully [WITH PICTURES!! for the shallow amongst us i.e. ME] about what his appeal might be. Read it here. Otherwise you're stuck with my version which just kind of goes GAH and links you to clips. Hers is thoughtful and shit.



*g* This has now gotten a little longer then even I intended and I haven't even begun to waffle on about all the double standards of his 'scandalous' AMA performance or what an absolutely adorable dork he is or about his charity work with DonorsChoose.org [hee, I linked just in case anyone has a few $ or £ or whatever to spare], but here are a few final links instead.

Adam/words are a well known OTP. Rightly so. Watch him in action:
on Idolatry
with Barnaby
with Michelle Collins
on Fuse
with Jonathan Ross

HIS TWITTER [worth following for occasional rants, bitch fights with Perez Hilton and stories of tranny pee]
[livejournal.com profile] hooplamagnet is geeky and my fave internet com and it's for Adam news and has tons of media
[livejournal.com profile] teamcockbert  is for flailing about Adam/whoever with fics, fic recs, pics and no ship wars
[livejournal.com profile] adamficfinder is an Adam/any pairing fic finding com for when you're looking for something you can't remember
Here is a reclist of Adam/other people fics!
If you're wondering about some of those other people, then you can read the cheat sheet at cockbert and also there's an Adam/Kris primer by [livejournal.com profile] buffyx here.

Adam and his claw attempt to look all rock 'n' roll hardcore while still being adorable!

I blame you for the new Adam Lambert folder I had to create in my bookmarks to match the Kris Allen folder I already had. He really is pretty and sparkly. I still have to watch videos of him performing on mute, but he has a knack for spectacle.

Plus,I like anyone who can be that witty...I think I love Adam Lambert a little. I've even been stalking/reading his brother's blog.

WOOHOO. I will happily take that blame, treasure it and keep it warm at night!

Kris is adorable. Musically not my cup of tea, but I do think he's talented.

Yeah. He's a good talker for sure. That definitely appeals to me as well. Neil is fucking hilarious. I love his perpetual grump on and twitter trolling and his idol tour recap on that blog is one of my favourite things. Aww your little Adam love is making me happy :D

I have diligently made my way through this post in order to rectify my horrifying lack of knowledge of Adam Lambert and it is now clear to me why there are so many popstars in this world who cannot sing - ADAM LAMBERT HAS APPROPRIATED THEIR VOICES FOR HIS OWN NEFARIOUS PURPOSES! O.o

Awww. You read it! I appreciate that <3

And don't you feel better now you've let Adam into your heart? Like the world is a brighter place and bluebirds are everywhere? LOL...I'm possibly only half joking.

Hee. I like that voice theory....AND THERE'S HIS OTHER NEFARIOUS PLAN TO SPARKLE US ALL INTO SUBMISSION >:|

Damn! Sorry about your computer :(

BUT YAY YAY YAY YAY on being sold. Isn't he amazing *dreamy sigh*? And kinda fascinating. Maybe because it's been so long since there's been anyone like him. He's like a modern anachronism, which I know doesn't make sense but it works in my head!

And I'm always here if you want to be inundated with more Adam stuff :D

oh mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn what an outstandingly, wonderfully, pretty, awesome post....

After Idol, Adam released his album which is fun and an electro-pop-rock hybrid that is not my usual taste at all BUT HIS TALENT TRANSCENDS GENRE

I think he does electro justice :p

Yeah, that clip of "If I had you" is one of my fluffy favs :o) That acoustic version of "Whole lotta love" is another for very different reasons *innocent eyes*

He grabs his dick? Well, who wouldn't under the circumstances? *amused*

yeah that rude boy vid has been *studied*

yeah, for me its the mix between his dorkish, sunny, open nature and his hot, sexy performances.

Thanks for the *wonderful* post!

LOL. Or geeky and OTT flaily :P Anyway, it's your fault for linking me to no_detective's posts!

HAHAHA. NO ONE HAS AN INNOCENT REACTION TO THAT WLL. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE!!

its the mix between his dorkish, sunny, open nature and his hot, sexy performances EXACTLY!! Although on a shallow note, his very pretty face doesn't hurt any. And if he weren't epically talented none of that would matter :D

OMG whilst I was forcibly offline, I dreamt that Adam announced his UK dates and all the tickets sold!! :(

*laughing* Most of our non dairy ices are made in China, it's verrryyy easy to not to eat them. At least it is law to say on the wrapper where they come from.

I tend to live on this (http://www.charlies.co.nz/index.html#products/Quenchers) in summer. Usually, the raspberry and lemonade, yum, it's not sweet, just amazingly refreshing.

Wow. That's...pretty weird. I would have thought a hot country would make their own. Crazy. LOL - do I want to ask what's wrong with China's lollies?

Oh yummy. I go for Marks & Spencers still lemonade, which is kind of just a slightly sweeter lemon juice. I'm guessing its the same kind of thing? I like the sound of the two flavours too.

Right now I'm drinking an old fashioned cream soda. It's delicious :)

Anything from China is suspect, they don't have health standards in place. I remember eating a packet of noodles which tasted of metal and practically burned my mouth one time. It had to be some kind of pesticide.

Yeah, if you are just left with a refreshed mouth rather than a sticky one or one that makes you pucker from the tartness, that's it :o)

? I take it, it isn't real cream?

EW EW EW EW. Okay. Definitely don't buy China food. Got it!

Yup. There's a teeny tarte pucker, but no so overwhelming to be constant or unpleasant.

LOL no. It's a vanilla flavour carbonated drink. Huh. I just looked it up and it's kinda different all round the world.
