Adam Lambert on His Look: It’s Nothing New!

Our Glam Rocker admits to E News Now that his look is more of a simple do-over than an original style. “What I do has been done before,” says Adam. He takes his looks from 70s and 80s glam artists, and David Bowie is a huge influence. Never mind, we LOVE everything you do! No matter the style that he’s re-creating, he always brings something new to the page.

After the E News Now video, be sure and check out the Man In The Box video showing his playful side, from his photo shoot with V Man Magazine, out Thursday.

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! :)

    Adam looks hot as usual. But getting beyond that, he is such a professional. It must be a pleasure for the photographers to work with a person who is ready to do exactly what they need in order to get a good shot. This is where all of Adams background comes in handy. Great to see him getting out there and getting the exposure!

    • Hi, ER, you said it well, Adam work hard and well at what he does. And he is hot and sexy it doesn’t matter he has makeup or not, and it doesn’t matter what type of clothing. He is just beautiful !!

      • Yes, ladies, Adam is HOOOOTTT and so beautiful it hurts to look at him, no? (But, I do.)

        PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:

        Friday is Adam’s birthday! And, since none of us get to have BIRTHDAY SEX with him, the next best thing would be to buy another copy of his FYE cd. (Yes, I know you already have several. Me too.) Let’s show him some love by spiking his album sales on his birthday! Woot!

        Spread the word on other threads, ok?

          Where have you been Wannabe, you seemed to disappear on us again. You need to stick around more, we need you on this site, please don’t go away again.

          • Aw, Dianne thank you. Real life has slammed into me for the past month or so, but I am working on getting my mojo back! Never fear. Even if I don’t post, I’m always checking in on all of you.

    • Smokin Hottt Hunk of a salacious MAN!! Luscious Lips Lambert!!!

    I agree. He is so over that he does everything. He is always ready for everything. I believe that he gain all people because he acting according to place. He feels what ‘s happening at the moment.
    I don’t know if I can explain what I want to say but He does what he want and does well. That’s it.
    Beijos/ kisses (Sorry my English ) I know you’ll understand.

    CD comes 28/january here in Brasil

  3. Loved, loved “Strut” on Ellen today. He was REALLY into the song…..does it EVER get old watching Adam……….Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!

  4. Adam looks so hot. Is there anything that Adam can’t do? He seems so amazing at everything he does. I am enjoying every second that Adam is bringing to us! Love you Adam!

  5. AdamAddict says:

    There’s photos …smoking hot ones!!~gulp~So this V Man Mag,who is the cover??And,I know this photoshoot but why there’s like eerr laser thing that Adam touched.What is that?For a sec,I thought he doing commercial but it says for mag.Hmm??!!

  6. Terry (Teresa/Canada)- I loved your post about how
    you just happened to tune in just when WWFM was playing, 3 times
    in a row. Yes, Adam’s vibe is alive and floating around Vancouver
    all the time!! You must be on his wavelength, ha ha…
    In the one interview, Adam said he could be the warm-up act for a
    “name” band (like Lady Gaga) – my answer is NO!!! He is the MAIN
    ATTRACTION for his own concerts, not a warm-up band!! He is so humble.
    People are fainting just in the anticipation – definitely not a warm-up act
    for someone else!!
    Also, Lady Gaga said she would be doing a duet at the Grammy’s
    with a surprise artist, let’s hope it’s Adam!
    I wish I had the money to make a bid on that sweaty underwear from
    the Ellen show!!
    Congrat’s on album going GOLD!!!!

    • adamfan, Oh you’ve got my hopes up so High here, talking about Lady G and a surprise artist!
      I want him singing that night, not asking people what they are wearing……… He’s a singer for God’s sake!

      I would love to have those undies he was sweating & dancing in to have & to hold! Just think his GB was in those. I better start bidding…………………….

      • Camera’s will be either exploding or melting, Lady Gaga and Adam performing together.
        Things are just getting really wild and crazy….
        The sweaty underwear! This is again so wonderfully over the top. We could all pitch in and make them the Traveling Undies.
        Now if he believes his undies are worth a lot of money he better believes it himself his voice is worth a lot of money

        It was great that Ellen brought him back on the show so shortly after he his first visit, she has his back all the way. Happy to see him perform a different song, he was really into playing with theme, of course.
        The signature screams at the end of the song tell me this man is a headliner and not just the opening act!

        • Irena

          I Know I was just thinking the same thing We all chip in for the Undies and they become the Traveling Adambulge Undiepants!!!

          Your right, if heis picture and Undies are worth money His Voice Is WORTH A MILLION.

    • i agree 100% Adamfan.

  7. Adam is being waaayy to modest for our ears. Sure this look may have been done before, But
    no one has had the Smokin -Hot -Gorgeous -Handsome Face of his to go with it. He is an original all the way! From Head to Toe, he cant be beat.

    • Although modesty is one of the traits we love about Adam, I entirely agree with you Mary…Adam doesn’t need to be modest about his look……he is unique = having no like or equal.

      Love, Yvonne (Australia)

  8. “Shock rocker?” Did I hear that correctly? Oh, brother…
    Well, Adam’s right, in a way. It HAS been done before. Sorta. Somewhat. More or less. But yeah, Mary C. says it–he’s being too modest. Adam brings something new to the table, which is why he’s causing such a sensation. He doesn’t just add to the lineage–he’s creating one, as well. And I say this as someone who remembers when Bowie first came on the scene (yeah, I’m that old).

  9. Adam is an “opening act” for NO ONE! Remember the AI tour??? What happened to the “act” that followed him after his performance on those concerts…….

    • lorraine

      Your right!! No ONE in their right mind will want to FOLLOW Adam on stage!! He will always blow away the others!!! No Competition. NONE!! DONE!!

      Lady GaGa would be the only choice, because she is a women and so unique herself.

  10. please vote for http://www.musiqtone.com its end jan/27 11 am and please vote for him on vh1 top20 countdown.i heard adam wwfm mv is no.1 from mjbigblog in 1 night.

  11. Evette #419 says:

    I am so tired of hearing ADAM referred to as controversial. What is the controversy? He is the sweetest kindest person and a mega talent what is so controversial about that. The only thing I find controversial is why there aren’t more people like him. As for his style you are right he is selling himself short. I’ve seen the 70’s and 80’s and nobody pulls it off like ADAM. He’s glam, yes, but so much more. I think he is CLASSY! This man is so perfect!!!!!!

    • Evette,
      Right ON!! Adam is NOT contraversial. He is a creative singer! He has NO COMPETITION and he is so original. I have never seen anything like him yet in my life. he is not the big hair band type of the 80’s. or the hippie 70’s look. He is so unique thats why we are so excited!!!

      He is like a box of GODIVA~~~~ You never know what your going to GET~~~ YUM YUM!!

  12. @ Evette419 enjoyed your comments! Yes, ADAM IS A VERY ‘CLASSY’ ‘HUNKY DORY’ GUY with
    talent beyond belief! If being out the box labels ADAM controversial than hey, I love it! He is such a
    beautiful person, intelligent, eloquent, caring and a mesmerizingly AMAZING entertainer who will
    achieve MEGASTARDOM! Only very few have achieved such status in the industry, ADAM for me (with MJ) lead the way of all time! Both a wonder to the world! ….and yup, after Ellen last night
    we have all been strutting all day! (did not appreciate however, having the show edited…as I’m sure
    many Glambs felt the same way….what was the deal on that!…..opps, we’re back to the controversial
    moments again!!!!!!!! Oh, time to move on!)

  13. DellaD Glamb #39 says:

    Evette — you said it best — C L A S S Y —- there is no one to match Adam for class . . . ..

  14. If someone can get Adam to be the Man in a Box, will you please mail him to me? Ha! Ha! I imagine the moment of opening that box and finding Adam, OH MY!!! COD will be fine.

  15. Silvana/Argentina says:

    Adam might be inspired in the ’70 and ’80, but he is REINVENTING glam. No one can compare to him in any possible way. And as Evette said, he is CLASSY!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Dianne Hill says:

      I agree Silvana, Adam is now leading the way, his look may have started back in the 1970s but Adam has redefined it and is doing it so much better than anyone did back then, and yes Evette is right he is one very CLASSY, SEXUAL GUY, the most beautiful guy on the planet, if we keep saying it loud enough, he may just hear us, do you think?

      I also agree with what LIsa said, if anyone wants to send me Adam in a Box I will be one very happy lady, imagine unwrapping that beautiful man inside, sigh.

  16. Ok peeps, you are getting my hopes up that he will be the one performing with Gaga!!! Would I just die? Yes!!!! I am going to NOT let myself think that it will be “HIM” and just enjoy the red carpet but wouldn’t it be great? Oh and sweet, sweet Ellen really pushing for Adam! Telling the world that she could have anyone she wanted to sing and she chose Adam? She has some great taste and will be great on Idol but I think that her heart belongs to Adam! Also, who out there thinks that the best part of the song was at the end when he was taking his ear things out and smiling?! I kept rewinding!! That smile is worth a thousand words and I find myself always smiling at the tv the whole time he is on! Fabulous that man is!! GO ADAM!
