2010 was certainly the Year of Adam Lambert. And 2011 promises to be more of the same, thank goodness! We’re so happy with the silence of news about him, because hopefully that means he’s getting back to day-to-day life where he can rest, refresh, and work on his next album. I wonder if we can even use the phrase “normal life” when thinking about Adam? After setting fire to stages around the world for almost 10 months, what can “normal” be? Does he have “To Do” lists like the rest of us? Can he go to Home Depot for some screws to fix a cabinet? Does he drop off his dry cleaning? Can you imagine being behind him in line while you’re buying your broccoli? While he’s at work on coming up with his next “wow ’em off the face of Planet Fierce” album, let’s reflect on his inclusion on several lists, awards and accolades. He’s topping many and making solid footprints on the rest of these star-studded roll calls for the top in music, video, concert tour and fashion, as well as entertainer-of-the-year. So much fun for us to do, right?? I give full credit and a heavy “thank you” to Juneau and Xena for compiling this list. You two ladies are wonderful!!

His fashion star was also on the rise. He kept it dapper, rocking suits with a glam touch added at red carpet events, and even went glam toe to glam toe with Boy George and lived to tweet about it. On stage and off, Adam’s presence is no doubt a commanding one. We’re salivating just thinking about what he has in store for the new year.” Great photo gallery of some of the looks Adam rocked in 2010.
