While we wait for tomorrow’s exciting Oprah, complete with a special appearance from one of our Glamb administrators (shhh . . . it’s a secret!!), catch up on an interview that was posted on the Oprah.com site.
From the very first note, there was no doubt Adam Lambert was bringing something new to the Idol stage. He is by far one of the most original and talented performers in the music industry today—and he has the Rolling Stone cover to prove it!
Screening Room chatted with the American Idol runner-up about life in the fast lane.
Stephanie Snipes: We simply must start by talking about the Rolling Stone cover. How amazing is that?
Adam Lambert: Wild, right? I was so honored when they asked me. It’s surreal. Every time I see it on a newsstand or on someone’s coffee table I’m like, “Whoa! That’s me! Oh my gosh!” It’s wild. It’s such an honor.
SS: It’s an amazing cover.
AL: Thank you! I like it too. Matthew Rolston is a genius photographer. Not only technically skilled but conceptually he brings so much amazing creativity to the table. He’s the best at what he does.
SS: Okay, Adam, there are a lot of Lambert fans out here that need a little consoling after the finale. Any words to make us feel better?
AL: I don’t think it really matters. I still get to put out an album. I still got signed to a major label. I got signed to RCA in a partnership with 19 Entertainment. I still get to do what I want to do. Nothing changes that. My whole goal of being on the show was to get some exposure and have a career in the recording industry. My immediate goal was to stay on the show as long as possible, and I did that. I stayed on as long as the show went on. I don’t think it’s about the title. I think it’s about the experience and it’s about the connection that I’ve gotten to make with all the people at home.
I’m so touched by everyone’s passion and dedication to voting and supporting me. And, I’m still going to make a really kick ass album.
