@adamlambert has done it again! He recently tweeted about being “off da grid.”

We now know that meant a trip 900 miles south to gorgeous Cabo San Lucas. But how much sun and relaxation time did he get?! He’s now sporting a new, dramatic look (yes, dramatic – even for Adam!), so part of his time must have been spent at a salon. Adam’s new bleached blond look is raising eyebrows across the globe. And maybe even his own jet black eyebrows! A photo of Adam was tweeted upon his arrival at LAX with boyfriend Sauli Koskinen, back from their trip to Mexico.
Adam gave his fans more of what they wanted. He tweeted out a photo of his new ‘do.

We know and love that Adam is always a work-in-progress and he even gave us a possible reason for the change.

He left us with this:

Lyndsey Parker of Reality Rocks has done an original, fresh write-up on this, so I’ll turn you over to it. Please be sure to comment what you think about Adam’s new look!

Love ya!

Adam Lambert’s Blonde Ambition: His Most Dramatic ‘Do Yet!

More than three years after his season of “American Idol” ended, Adam Lambert’s hair, both on his head and on his face, remains the hot topic of much online debate. Elvis hair or emo hair? Blue Manic Panic stripe or Vanilla Ice stripes? Clip-on ponytail or no? Goatee or beard-free? There was even one time when he tweeted a pic of the side of his head freshly shaved, and Twitter basically exploded. Well, the engineers over at Twitter better have some backup servers in place, just in case, now that the forever-shapeshifting Glamerican Idol has just tweeted another photo of what may be his most extreme follicle makeover yet.

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)


  1. Im happy to see Adam finally be himself. He must have spent a huge amount of time keeping his hair black.

  2. Lila - Glamb #3 says:

    I love the new look and that he’s constantly changing. I found a video recently that reminded me of a nightclub I used to go to in the 80’s and I had forgotten how extreme our hairstyles were back then. No wonder I love Adam and his group!

    • Adam can absolutely do no wrong in my eyes! Three years ago he literally “saved” my life. He is my Savior in so many other ways, too. I thank the Universe for sharing its truly wondrous creation and to please always keep him safe, healthy and happy 🙂 Adam will always be Adam, which is to say “you never know what to expect”!! I must admit though that his gorgeous raven black locks sure made his baby blues pop out – oh so nicely!! I’ll be one of Adam’s fans forever and always.

    Adam’s hair is just like his heart and his voice ~ Golden!! IJLYA*

  4. In the beginning I gasped over everything Adam did but now I just smile 🙂
    Rock On!

    I like the black much better, but overall I don’t really get too excited over his hairdos. This is what Adam does and we need to get used to it. I love how you never know what you’ll get from him.

  6. Kat4adam says:

    Will Adam and Queen play at the closing ceremonies in London for the Olympics.
    Love the look, hope he doesn’t shave his head, wouldn’t like that.

  7. Gwendolyn says:

    After all, it’s just hair and perhaps most importantly, it’s HIS hair. Although at first blush, I have to say I miss the previous look. HOWEVER — I decided years and years ago that if I had just one life, I preferred to live it as a blonde LOL . Carpe diem, Adam. . . we know you do!

  8. Well, Adam sure came back ON the grid in a big, dramatic way, didn’t he? He never fails to amuse me, as well as entertain me. I simply adore him no matter what he does to his hair. Plus this is a great way for him to get publicity, which he so richly deserves, although I don’t think he did this for that reason. I think he likes to make changes to keep life interesting and don’t we all strive for a more interesting life? I don’t think he’ll stay this color for long. My personal fav hairstyle of his is the shaggy pixie cut which I think makes him look so adorable, but that style is so 3 years ago. And I like the raven black as far as color goes. He is just so lovable, no matter how he wears his hair, and no matter what clothes he wears. He does seem to like being on the cutting edge of things. I just love him to pieces!

    I want to see Adam performing live & in colour with the new look. When I first saw the pics at LAX I just chuckled because Adam & Sauli looked to me to be giggling over the reaction they knew was to come from Adam’s new look. Whether he wants blue or wolf or #chromeashplatinumfantasy is fine by me. I’m interested in the whole man, externally & internally. Rock on Adam!

  10. It’s Adam’s hair, but I think black is so much more sexy and dramatic looking. The blond makes him look too washed out althought he is always interesting!

  11. Come back to black, please Adam!

  12. Black is much better. He looks too washed out as a blonde !

  13. I know it’s still him, but then again, not him. I think the black suits him better. Maybe it’s just a phase for his time off – I hope he changes it back to the way it was when he first came into our lives. They look like twins now & he needs to stand out by himself & not be a clone of someone else (no offense Sauli). At least that is how I feel about it. He is still gorgeous but not in the same distinctive way that he was. His hair has seen a lot of changes over the years, but nothing this extreme. Bring back the black – it is who you are!

    • I couldn’t agree with you more! I love Adam to pieces, but I don’t like this do at all! I didn’t like the shaved on one side either.

      • katskreati says:

        you do know your remarks fuel haters…give them something to diss him about…if you are a true fan…you would not care if he shaved his head…he owns his hair…he is creative and a rish taker…quite being judgemental.

      • I agree with you DNSowles!

  14. It is Adam’s hair, but he is not as sexy looking with that blonde washed out hair….
    Please bring back the black Adam…..I agree with Barb you look like twins.

    • katskreati says:

      is that what you like about adam….just his hair…or do you like what is inside…his heart and his amazing talent….stop being superficial and love him for being the risk taking, big hearted, sexy no matter what, mega talented man he is…

  15. Leilani Aloha says:

    So so happy today to hear Adam’s ” what do you want from me ” playing one of the malls in Waikiki, Honolulu!!!

    • katskreati says:

      get this …my husband was at Remington Grill yesterday and they played a country music version of What do ya want from me…not a new style country music …but old country style…He said it was all he could do to not bust out laughing…But I guess that is when you know your song is successful…when country music people are doing covers of it.

    • KO's smiling says:

      Heard Better than I Know Myself at Toys R Us yesterday. So weird.

  16. Francess Clark says:

    I think it’s androgynous and futuristic and very real Adam. The black brought too many Elvis comparisons. This makes me think of David Bowie. Adam is moving into his own unique style musically and this new look goes with that. He’s beautiful any way he wants it.

  17. I can’t say for sure that I don’t like the new color. I just don’t like the pic
    he tweeted. Maybe when I see a colored pic of him with the new hair,
    I’ll like it better. I do love his hair black. And he’ll still have to keep
    this color maintained.

  18. I don’t care what Adam does with his hair. I love everything about Adam, his character, his soul, his edge, his honesty, his realness. Don’t get me wrong I love his looks too, He is gorgoeus no matter what he does to himself. Black, Red, Blonde, shaved, bearded, long short, buzzed, makeup, no makeup… Aren’t we all doing that to ourselves? I never know what color i’m gonna be when I come home from the salon. I wish people would leave him alone, just quit whining and bitching evertime the boy makes a move. Let him live his life. He deserves that for all that he gives to us.He has taught me to be myself and I’m 50 years old. The last 3 years I’ve quit alot of the pretending just to fit in to the right social circles and Iam who I am. And it’s because Adam isn’ t afraid to be who he is.He does “keep us entertained”. We hever know what he’s gonna do and I for one love that. It’s just hair guys and didn’t affect his voice !

  19. katskreati says:

    People…really…you know Adam is laughing at you…all of you…whining about his hair color change. Adam is Adam…he loves change…he is not scared of change…he likes being brave (this is very brave…to go from black to platinum) and he expressing himself…Give him a break and be the true fan you are suppose to be…Stop being shallow like his haters.

    • Yes, we will give him a break & be the true fans we’re supposed to be …. as soon as you stop dictating what we’re allowed to like & dislike!

  20. adam was born with light color hair he has just gone back to his roots ha ha. but i will say the black hair makes him oh so sexy and brings out his eyes. i will still love what ever makes him happyxoxox

  21. I truly am so in love and infatuated with Adam… but I have to admit I prefer the black hair that’s not shaved…. and when it’s a bit longer. This blonde do looks washed out for
    him, less babe-ish in my opinion. He has such a gorgeous face and eyes, that the black hair highlights to the max. Just remember once you go black you never go back baby!

  22. Random Medley says:

    There sure is an awful lot of opinions based on ball cap covered pap pictures and 1 colourless picture Adam tweeted.

    I’m waiting to see what Lee Cherry photos look like or fierce make-up and dressing up for Japan looks like.

    So far my favorite was the shaggy fresh fcuked look with the blue highlights. But if that was all we got we would have missed out on everything from emo, shaved sides, elmo, Elvis and a variety of wolves. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHATS NEXT \O/

  23. Adam looks great, Wait for a color picture before you pass judgment .sure a black and white print is going to look washed out but wait till you see hes flesh tone and his amazing eyes and you won’t be able to say washed out…..Love me some Adam

  24. bring the black hair baaaccckkk! !!!

  25. I too prefere the black with those amazing blue eyes, too many blonds with blue eyes , and I’m one. Love the drama of the jet black hair, more his personality , dramatic !!!!

  26. It looks like its about 50-50 on the hair change. Just because I stated that I prefer it being black, in no way does that say I’m still not a fan. We are allowed our opinion. No it does not change his voice or who he is, but the drastic change, for me, is that I prefer the black because it is more distinctive to his whole packaged look. Don’t put me in the same category as the haters, that is just wrong.

  27. vocalsrule says:

    It is so crazy that for all her success in the Olympics, some people got all worked up about Gabby Douglas’s hair. Same for Adam. Do whatever you want guys. They have both achieved levels we can only try to dream about. We love you however you want to be.

  28. Black and blonde look perfect on Adam. LOV it !!
