Adam Lambert Receives GLAAD Media Award!! VIDEO!!

Presented by Mel B of Spice Girl fame, Adam Lambert received the Davidson Valentini Award at the San Francisco GLAAD Media Awards yesterday, giving a very comical and poignant acceptance speech.

GLAAD awards 5-11-13

While shot from a distance, this video captures Mel’s introduction of Adam. Thank you NoAngelPF for your immediate posting.

Here’s a closer video from GLAADMedia of just Adam’s acceptance. Is it my imagination, or is this a very tepid crowd? Maybe I’m just use to a room full of Glamberts, who go crazy at the drop of a feather. Maybe this is what “polite” looks like?!

Here’s Adam making his entrance on the red carpet, with his mom, Leila.

This is the full red carpet – 1 hour & 43 minutes. If you advance the timer button at the bottom of the video, Adam and Leila enter the screen at 39:13. You’ll see Adam move on solo and chat with two on the carpet, giving some beautifully animated close-up facial time, until 44:36. This video gives living room fans a more accurate view of what it’s like to attend Red Carpet events. With the red carpet lasting for 1 ¾ hours, you can imagine that a dinner event lasts all day. Taking in the prep time, traveling to the event, arriving, red carpet, entrance with schmoozing, the event and the after-party, Lila and I can tell you personally that it lasts all day. At least our NewNowNext Awards did!! Kind of like lining up all-day for one of his concerts! 🙂

Adam shares his and Leila’s entrance with us.

Of course it wouldn’t be Adam if our day didn’t start with this:

Happy Mother’s Day to you all! 🙂

Love ya!

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! :)

    What a fabulous outfit for both him and his mom. This was a great event and I’m so proud of Adam. More good things to come I’m sure.

  2. I don’t know why but he looks awkward walking down the red carpet. ADAM YOU SHOULD BE FEELIN SEXY AND FREE.
