ADAM LAMBERT OPENS UP TO E! FOR HIS VERY OWN E! TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY

E! TRUE HOLLYWOOD STORY: ADAM LAMBERT

Premieres November 21 @ 9:00 PM ET/PT Only On E!

“That’s why I’m here. I’m an entertainer. To provoke conversation and opinion is part of what I do.” – Adam Lambert

(Los Angeles, CA, October 26, 2010) — Adam Lambert has traveled far since his days as a freckle faced, red-headed kid playing “Linus” in his school production of You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Along the way, he’s pushed boundaries, reinvented glam-rock and transformed himself into a universal sex symbol. The most beloved runner-up in American Idol history shares his journey to stardom in his own words in the upcoming E! True Hollywood Story, set to premiere November 21st at 9:00 PM, ET/PT.

Also sitting down with E! are Lambert’s mother, Leila; father, Eber; brother, Neil; close friends and widely respected music journalists Anne Powers and Vanessa Grigoriadis. Lambert’s family shares intimate anecdotes from the pop star’s childhood in North San Diego County. “I’m very fortunate to have parents that recognized that I was different and recognized how I was special. They didn’t ever try to box me in,” says Lambert. The singer also divulges wild stories from his days performing in various musical theater gigs on cruise ships and throughout Europe. He explains, “I was exploring my sexuality a lot more aggressively. I was living a rock star lifestyle. I tried a lot of things – it was a big eye-opener for me.” Lambert also tells E! the revelation he experienced while attending the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert that landed him at American Idol auditions in San Francisco. American Idol judge Randy Jackson shares with E! his recollections of that fateful day when he heard Lambert’s Idol audition – “I was like ‘Oh my God- I’ve been looking for this guy, where has this guy been?” To the shock of many, Lambert did not walk away the winner of the popular singing competition, losing to Kris Allen in the final vote. This new E! True Hollywood Story examines the speculation surrounding the Idol results and Lambert’s reaction to being a runner-up.

Also chronicled in the one-hour program are the emotional and controversial milestones in Lambert’s personal life. From how he told his parents that he was gay, to the release of potentially damaging photos of him kissing an ex-boyfriend during the height of the American Idol craze, to his Rolling Stone magazine cover story and his highly criticized American Music Awards performance, Lambert reveals all. Says the singer, “My fans have been really supportive of my choice to be open and upfront about my sexuality and my lifestyle. I have come from the belief that hiding something from people and manipulating what they think of you is far more offensive and disrespectful than just being upfront and being who you are.”

With new stories, surprising revelations and exclusive photos and videos straight from an extremely candid Lambert himself, this E! True Hollywood Story is not to be missed. Be sure to tune-in to the E! True Hollywood Story: Adam Lambert on November 21th at 9:00 PM only on E!.

  1. Everything I love about this man, always confirmed over and over again. Can’t wait to hear the Zodiac Rock and Roll stories!!!! Anyway this whole thing sounds amazing. How great his family and some friends will be there. This sounds like a complete treat!

    Also want to bring it to everybodies attention that on Adam Official one of the head moderators is asking fans if they would purchase a GlamNation DVD/CD. So don’t be a stranger, go overthere, create an account and let you voice be heard. The response has been overwhelming but it would be so fabulous to have more and more people respond and show Adam how much we love and appreciate him right before he gets another well deserved break!

    • Irena,
      What section at AdamOfficial do we go to please?

    • sun-n-stars says:

      Where on Adam Official can you purchase the DVD? I’ve been searching and cannot locate it.

      • You go to Community and then “Adam discussion” amd it will be the first topic.
        They are looking for tons of responses….
        The DVD is not released yet. the Suits at RCA are looking into the profitability right now. So please don’t let this fall through because of lack of response.
        Lots of ardent fans have repsonded very enthusiasticly but in reality they only make up a small percentage of the fanbase.
        Still people found their way to all the GlamNation concerts so they will find these DVD’s as well.
        I guess it is very unusual to release such a DVD of a new artist!

  2. We have been waiting for this day from the begining. We fan knew from the AI8 days that Adam Lambert is the force to reckon with. E True Hollywood people are smart and connected with the people’s choice. I am a proud fan and happy for Adam for his achievement.

  3. I don’t know where he gets the time or the energy. He’s a regular energizer bunny. Got the calendar marked. Finally, something worth watching on TV.

  4. Leilani Aloha says:

    Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh , so happy for Adam!!!

    Yes, will look forward to watch “E” on Nov. 21!!!

    Felt the same way as judge Randy Jackson & all Adam fans when I first heard him sang ” WLL”!!!
    My Husband & I went ” OMG! who is this kid! ”

    And when all the hub about his sexuality, the more we want to surport & voted for Adam Lambert!
    He’s so talented, with a beautiful big voice, charisma & good looks makes Adam Lambert a born entertainer!!!

    Moreover, his honesty & authenticity makes all of us LOVE him moreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

    Congrats Adam!!!

  5. Cannot wait! 🙂

  6. Mary-Ellen #444 says:

    Excellent! Now to convince hubby to record this for me as I will be IN AMSTERDAM for Adam’s concert the night before! Oh my November is going to be so good!:)

  7. I’M SO HAPPY; AND ON MY BIRTHDAY!! THIS IS GOING TO BE A REAL BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR ME; LOVE ADAM SINCE I SAW HIM SINGING “SATISFACTION:” ON AI; I MISS SEEING HIM ON TV!!

  8. adamlover51 says:

    Happy Birthday early mary ellen what a great way to spend your birthday I can’t wait to see E love seeing adams faimly always so cute they deserve a lot of credit for raising such a wonerfull young man and supporting his amazing talant He is such a positive spirit just love listening to him talk

  9. I’ll be there and have it taped to watch again and again. I believe it is the same night as the AMAs. Not that it matters, I won’t be watching any of it anyway. Sadly I will concede that Justin Bieber is a god in the music business and expect him to win along with the usuals. I don’t want to watch.

  10. Glamourclamor says:

    Nothing ever works when I try to record. I am a total fail at electronics. Even looked on line and thinking about buying a TVo so I can be sure to get it right. Will at least talk to the people who sell these things in stores. And no, not buying for this one show alone, lots of things I want to record in the future. This is just the means to the end, so to speak. Well, it sounded good. Wasn’t planning on watching AMA’s since they still have that steel rod up their behinds. Time to cut Adam a little slack, don’t you think? Network TV is going to be a dinosaur pretty soon, if they don’t catch up to the cable shows. Hardly ever watch Network much these days. And as Marie above, says, Bieber will probably win, although Eminem should win. Am I just too damn old to think this Bieber Kid is anything other than another Mouseteer, except he has no real talent but a lot of hair and jumps around the stage like he’s got fire ants in his drawers.

    • LOL!!! Love reading your comments…they crack me up! And we think alike, but you’re better at actually posting your thoughts. I just enjoy reading them!

  11. SUCH JOY….E! AND ADAM ARE THE SAME DAY AS THE AMA’S….I WONDER WHAT WE’LL BE WATCHING???? I PRAY ADAM HAS THE MOST VIEWERS THAN ANY OTHER E! SPECIAL, WE CAN MAKE THAT HAPPEN.

  12. GLAMOURclamor….I SECOND THAT MOTION. BEIBER IS ALSO DOING AN ACOUSTAL CD WHICH WILL BE RELEASED AROUND THE SAME TIME AS ADAM’S. BEIBER WILL FADE AS THESE YOUNG GIRLS GO ON TO THE NEXT BIG TEENY BOPPER, OUR ADAM HAS STAYING POWER (you know what I mean).

    • Yeah, can anyone say “Hanson”????

    • Glamourclamor says:

      Bieber doing an acoustical cd, on what? Guess I have only heard him sing one song, but since he has lots of big time people backing him,and making tons of money off him, nothing should surprise me. In fact, these people give new meaning to exploitation!!! Does this kid go to school? At least the Disney kids were given an education. Read somewhere that he didn’t know what German meant. Probably did not happen, just a story. Anyway, wish him luck with his acoustical cd, won’t buy it, but still wish him the best, and all those other pockets being filled up.

      • I can’t bear finish even just one song of him, i shut off the radio once i heard the first verse.
        Justin is for the youngs girls who eventually overcome their immaturities and be sane the next and he’s totally a goner.

  13. Can’t wait for Adam’s E special. Miss Adam so. He’s such a delight for all 5 senses. I sat on the aisle at Melody Tent in Hyannis, MA, so every time Adam left or entered the stage he flew by me and I got a whif of his scent. I still smell him! Waiting to go back on stage he stood next to me for a torturous 30 seconds or so. My body wanted to hold him, my mind wanted to tell him how much he means to me, and my heart said let him be. My heart won and I’m glad it did. He stood there in the aisle, vulnerable and waiting to do his thing. I let him have his seconds of freedom. But I did get to smell him. Adam is one magnificent star, a gift to us all.

    • Oh what a sweet story,. Why am I crying?
      Because you said you felt his vulnerability…..somewhere deep inside still lives that freckled overweight teenager who was a virgin till he was 21.
      This will always be my deepest connection to Adam, our personal transformation that we both went through. And believe me sometimes the voices in your head like to play tricks on you!
      Now of course I can’t wait to get the dirt on E! and hear what live has been like after his 21st birthday!!!!!

  14. sun-n-stars says:

    I got real close to Adam as well at the Norfolk mall in Virginia. I couldn’t even look at him, I was so nervous plus I didn’t want to draw attention to him as people were lining up for a movie bonanza that was going on that evening. I did sneak a quick look while beside him – cannot lie about it. He and the band were going to see “Get Him to the Greek”. My friend & I did chat with Neil – but he was extremely nervous. We didn’t go to see the same movie as I am quite shy and did not want to appear like a stalker to him. Thanks for notifying us about the E! premiere and to purchase the DVD. Best wishes to all!

  15. Adam Lambert “Artistic Genius”. Looking forward to this. He is just such an amazing guy in every way. Voice, charm, intelligence, entertainer, looks. He has it ALL!!! I have never been so infatuated by an artist like this in my life. It’s been so much fun following his career. Attending multiple Glam Nation shows, watching videos and interviews. What a great hobby!!! Love Adam!!!!

  16. Jane Parker says:

    I can hardly wait!!!

  17. This is totally awesome. It’s about time e did something
    And everyone he loves is there. Hope they ask
    New questions and get new answers

  18. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be TIVO’ing E! when this particular show comes out, but isn’t that show usually reserved for celebrities that are past their “heyday”? Adam is just starting his.

    Just wondering.

  19. Is anyone know Adam going to be at jingle Bowl S Florida

  20. I am looking forward to it. I was at the San Diego concert where some of it was shot. They wouldn’t let any other photographers in because E! had exclusive rights. He looked amazing and I was lucky enough to see him from the 8th row. I hope that they will do a positive piece on him. I am SO excited and so happy for him. I just hope they dwell on the positive and keep the negativity to a minimum like the AMAs, pap – the stuff that doesn’t really matter. No one has the talent, vocals, charisma and charm that Adam has. So, I want the TV audience to see what we have all known since day one on AI. I love what Adam has brought to my life and I want the rest of the world to know him – the person and entertainer. DVRs will be set to watch over and over again.

  21. The good thing that Adam rubbed-off on me is his positive outlook in almost everything. I had become more positive now. The cup is half-full and not half-empty. Through all my struggles and tears in my work in Public Health, the Health Center which I head, is now bagging awards. First place in the Province among 17 towns, and might become first again in Region 6 among almost 200 towns. I documented 6 Best Health Practices, one of these is the HATAW exercise program which I lead. This site also helped as an outlet for my many moods and Adam was a panacea and a great inspiration.

    . Thanks Fernando, Sue, Carol. Leila and the other Glambs.
    Thank God for Adam, may he continue to entertain and inspire us for many more years to come.

  22. I love everything all of you have said and I totally agree with you. Adam is an amazing soul and I am so glad that he has come into our lives. I have one friend who says what I feel is nothing more then being a groupie like people have been for years. I have others who laugh when I mention him and say ” are you still on that kick?” They have no comprehension of what this man is. And maybe I’m crazy, but I feel there is much more to Adam then they think. Look at all the people he has united because of our love of his amazing voice and charisma and for what he stands for. The unity of people, the acceptance of each other and ourselves. He inspires us to be kinder and generous with our positivity. For me he has brought peace into my life. When I get overwhelmed with the reality of everyday trials and tribulations I listen to his music or bring him up on the internet and just enjoy watching him perform or his interviews or read all the comments from all of you. It just makes me happy………..

    • Aw, Maisong, what a wonderful post!! Well said and so true!! You speak for many of us. Thank you!

  23. cruise ships are the best, they have their own live entertainment and some pools on the deck .

  24. My gosh… Oh, Reverse Osmosis, you just gave me an idea. And there Igo dreaming again. Even if this won’t come true, to dream of this just makes me happy. —- There’s this cruise ship, and on board are the Glambs and we get to watch Adam each night perform at its big club. Oh, how happy we were, because it was one big reunion of the Glambs where we met, socialized and just suffused with Adam’s love and music.——–

  25. ELAINE CASALE says:

  26. can sum1 pls tell me wat time it will air in malaysia…..

  27. Lynette Crosby says:

    I wanted to add my comments about Adam Lambert. I watched him on American Idol and was so impressed that for the first time ever, I picked up the phone and voted for him. I thought he was a wonderful singer with the ability to sing any type of song–even slow songs like “Mad, Mad World ” and “Feeling Good”. I began recording episodes of American Idol and then waited eagerly to see him on the 2009 AMA show.

    Well, he blew me away–but not in a good way. Of course I long ago realized that Adam was gay but I thought it had no bearing on his talent. But the S&M thing–the oral sex pantomine, the in-you-face attitude. I’m no longer a fan. I guess I’m a mainstream type of person–obviously not the type that Adam wants to perform for…

    I tuned in the2010 AMA show the other night, sort of hoping that Adam would be back with a calmer, more nuanced performance featuring his great vocal range. I searched the internet and read that he wasn’t invited back. Too bad…

  28. of course cruise ships are expensive but of course the trip is very nice `,~

  29. Thank you, I have recently been looking for details about this topic for ages and yours is the best I’ve found so far.
