While reading Entertainment Weekly’s Oscar Edition (Feb. 4, 2011), I came across “Life After Idol” by Tanner Stransky. Of course my pulse quickened, hoping they’re heaping praise on Adam Lambert. Yes, he’s pictured in the main photo so I know it’s going to be good!
Ten contestants from Season 8 and earlier are spotlighted with How They’ve Done, What’s Next, and they are given a Career Grade. Adam is the only person from Season 8. I know you’re dying to read it! I’ll retype his section, but you’ll have to read the picture for the others. I couldn’t find a link to the printed article, so the picture of the article will have to do.
ADAM LAMBERTSeason 8’s envelope-pushing runner up.
How He’s Done Lambert recently scored a Grammy nomination for “Whataya Want From Me,” and his 2009 album, For Your Entertainment, has sold 787,000 copies. What’s Next Another album, of course. He’ll head back into the studio this spring, and the finished product could be out by the end of the year. Career Grade B
Whaaatttt???? What about just finishing the most incredible NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL GLAM NATION TOUR??? Oh well, they didn’t really list much detail for the others, and we still have to be grateful that he’s listed. Of course we think it’s a given, but I bet the Claymates are seething!!
A few pages later, under the Music Reviews on p. 112, they’re reviewing George Michael’s Faith: Special Edition. The first sentence: “As latter-day glamazons like Adam Lambert and Lady GaGa have shown, the Wham! man’s influence still looms large.”
Need I say more?!?
