My Bowie: Adam Lambert

By Adam Lambert

Beware of the Diamond Dogs.

My father is a huge Bowie fan, and about the time I first got interested in what he was listening to, he pulled out the Diamond Dogs album. The cover was just so cool and trippy and weird. At that point I was really into Halloween and costumes, and when my dad played me the album, I thought, Oh, it’s a Halloween thing. I was maybe 8 or 9, but I didn’t really start appreciating Bowie for myself until my early twenties, when I was getting into glam rock. A light bulb went off—I wasn’t into drag, I didn’t want to dress like a woman, but I wanted to express my gender and artistic identity differently than the mainstream. Bowie was a key inspiration.

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! :)

    What is the tattoo on Adam’s neck? Is it a tattoo that Adam got that I miss seeing?
    Please let me know.

  2. Our dear Adam is multi talented! I love Adam. Haven’t seen him in person yet. I hope someday I will.

  3. All I can say is that I’m glad Adam isn’t into drag. I love that he knows who he is. That drag stuff is way too confusing. I love that Adam is a very confident man. He exudes confidence in everything that he does. He doesn’t even need the eyeliner 🙂
