Adam Lambert’s Rumor Control

Another day, another tweet-fest from Adam.
As you will read, by the end of his twitter session, Adam states that he is totally OVER IT, meaning the Idol finale controversy that wasn’t really a controversy.
Personally, between the two situations, I say forget the finale as I would much rather have Adam working on his tour. With that being said, we are over it as well!!!!
I have also included an article from Michael Slezak, EW correspondent, explaining the entire situation.


Adam Lambert rep: Report about canceled ‘American Idol’ finale gig was ‘completely fabricated’
by Michael Slezak
Categories: American Idol, Rumor Control

Adam-Lambert-new report by PopEater columnist Rob Shuter claiming that American Idol producers nixed Adam Lambert’s performance on tonight’s season finale because he failed to show up for rehearsals is filled with “false information,” says a rep for the season 8 runner-up. What happened, says 19 Entertainment’s Roger Widynowski, is that, like most major Idol grads, Adam was approached by producers about being a part of the telecast, which included seven out of eight previous Idol winners and a stage full of additional bold-faced show alumni paying tribute to departing judge Simon Cowell. Lambert, however, came down with a case of laryngitis over the weekend, and with his Glam Nation tour set to begin June 4 in Wilkes-Barre, PA, he was promptly placed on vocal rest. “He was never confirmed to do the show. He never skipped rehearsal,” adds Widynowski.

The PopEater article, however, quotes an unnamed source claiming that Lambert “did not show up for rehearsals, sending producers scrambling because they weren’t sure ‘if Adam is sick, being a diva, or worse, planning something that he does not want people to see.’” It goes on to say that Lambert wasn’t “interested in changing his performances to suit [Idol producers’] standards” and that “his non-appearance will be played off by claiming Lambert is sick.”

“That’s completely fabricated,” responds Widynowski.

One fact Widynowski and Shuter agree on is that Lambert did send out a Tweet on May 19 announcing he wouldn’t be part of the season-ending telecast. “Unfortunately not performing on Idol Finale. Guess they have plenty of artists booked. Catch me on Ellen tommorow [sic] and Leno on Friday,” Lambert wrote.

Requests for comment from Fox and American Idol were not immediately responded to.

Here is the result of Adam’s tweet fest yesterday, and for it to make sense, scroll to the bottom and read upward!!

    YOU GO ADAM!! Tell ’em like it is!! I don’t believe anything unless it comes outta those gorgeous freckly lips of yours!! *remembers bubble tweet with finger on lips* PLL

  2. beaglewoman says:

    I had read the article before seeing any Tweets and didn’t believe what was said from the get-go. It’s pretty sad that “journalists” resort to fabrication to get some hits but this is certainly not the first time that people have made up stories about Adam that were completely false. Remember during the AI tour the story about Adam being a diva with a fan because they touched his wet nail polish??? It’s like some folks just can’t, or don’t want to believe, that Adam is actually nice and not self-absorbed. I’m sorry that it’s such a distraction for him but I’m going to 2 of his concerts and celebrate with the rest of the Glamily! After watching about 10 minutes of the AI finale last night it’s probably good that Adam didn’t perform – would have only made the others seem small.

    • 100% HONEST TRUTH!! AI must have thought about it long time ago.
      But i have to say, there was never a grand moment in that finale night except of course when Lee’s name was announced winner. Unlike last year’s, when because Adam it turned out to be the best finale ever and will ever be for AI. And it could have been more memorable for all of us had the title went to the most deserving Adam.

      • I agree. We all know that Adam would have blown everyone out of the water. When they were naming the high points in Idol, they mention Fantasia when she sang Summertime, and when they mentioned Adam Lambert and when he sang Mad World you could hear loud cheers. Can you image what he would have done had he actually been there? Simon Fuller is his manager, Idol is his show, I think he wanted Adam rested up for his tour. And maybe he felt sorry for Kris Allen, because WE all know, Adam would have yet again upstaged him. Idol couldn’t have that being as Kris was last years um winner. (Yeah we all know who the REAL winner is.) What is funny is I love Adam and this year I fell in love with Lee. They are totally different.

    • That is what I thought, Adam would have stole the show, and blown them all out of the water! Simon would have come in second place.


  4. AI did not want Adam he would have over shadow everyone there except for Bret Michaels that was beyond awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AI got it right this year with Lee.

    • DellaD Glamb #39 says:

      I agree 150%!!!

      • jahs #376 says:

        Totally agree! Tired of reading negative remarks about Lee. So many haters out there.

        • That other response was towards Bret showing up. I am also tired of the haters putting down Lee. He was one Idol who actually listened to Adam when he was on there to mentor. I love Lee’s voice. I don’t think he sounds anything like Kris Allen. I was soooooooooooooo happy when Lee won!!! You are right, finally American got it right!!!

    • Wasn’t that cool? I was so surprised! I loved that moment!

  5. ADAM is TRUTH. he speaks it and is it. so much craziness in the world today it’s refreshing to have adam who is not afraid to be honest and open about it.

  6. adamfan says:

    What he “had to get off his chest” could also have been needing to
    respond to the mean comments about his dancers.
    Yes, it’s time for everyone to move on to a place of love for them.

    Is it the last tour rehearsal because all of the equipment is being
    moved east? Does this mean he might actually get a rest for
    a few days – I hope so!!

    Loved his comment “they need to get laid” haha. Good to see his
    sense of humor can still surface amid all this bulls**t.

  7. Cnthia - Glam# 575 says:

    ……”promoting Love, diversity, peace, bravery and pride.” That’s what I am going to thank him for when I see him in the meet and greet line! That and his glamification (sexiness, magnificant voice and unbelievable performance. Love you Adam!

  8. Keep that sense of humor–its all BS anyway and part of being a star. If you weren’t no one would give a F…. if you were there or not. The celebrity game is all about half truths, non-truths and stories that get people to read these stories Probably more people reading why you weren’t there then those reading about who won, which by the way is another BS story. A1 needs a new way of voting, not just a new Simon.

  9. Well Said Adam:) Rip them a New Ass:)Get so sick and Tired of all the false and fake bullshit.On top of not feeling well and crystal not winning lastnight and all the lies:(I WOULD SAY THAT ADAM IS FED UP WITH IT ALL.WE ALL LOVE YOU ADAM:)JUST REST AND RELAX:)

  10. cheryl 334 says:

    Adam, keep practicing keeping your eye on your fans and career. There will always be haters and abusers in this world. What comes around ~goes around! Jealousies abound – unfortunately.

  11. Man have been off line for a couple of days with work priorities and all this has been going on, like the commen further back said, “dont believe anything unless I see and hear Adam say it himself now, or his twitters. At least he can answer back and put the rumours to rest with twitter. I dont know if it is best to ignore the haters or put them right. Adam seems to laugh off critism of himdelf okay, but when it is people he cares for. Watch out.Love you Adam you are a loyal and loving friend and we will stand beside you as you follow your dream and our reward is hearing your wonderfuk voice and watching madarse visual. Your hard work is appreciated.

    Wish I was closer to US for the concert tour, I wonder is it truly going to be international in the fall, has he confirmed this hinself or is it another fallicey.

    • I am not on Twitter myself but this message was posted on AO and I also think on this site.
      That there will be an internation tour this Fall!!!

  12. Adamisamazing says:

    I was really glad to see this posting. Now, Adam and all his fans can move on, and just forget this instance of jealous, unhappy, negative detractors. I admire Adam’s loyalty, honesty and sense of humor. He always handles everything very well because he really is an intelligent person.
    Speaking of AI, this season was a snoozefest for me, so I usually just fast forwarded through it. And, this may sound crazy, and I don’t mean to take anything away from Lee’s singing voice and talent, but I only became a fan of his when Adam Lambert was the mentor on the show. On Elvis week, when Ryan asked Lee why his performance was “hotter” after he received really good reviews from the judges, he said it was because Adam was such a big help. Adam told him to smile more, etc. That’s when I wanted Lee to win. Whenever anyone shows respect for Adam, I love them, too. So, even though Lee deserved to win on his own merit, who knows… maybe his win had something to do with the Adam Effect. Speaking for myself, Lee said something wonderful about Adam in front of everyone, and that is when I wanted Lee to win!

  13. Princessshakeitup says:

    OK, which is the RUMOR and which is the TRUTH!?

    1. Adam is resting his vocal cords on the island of St Kitts where I have him wrapped in a hammock, am plying him with Rum and rubbing him down with coconut oil and aloe [ His vocal cords are at rest because I am doing all the screaming!] and I have pictures of the whole thing that I would like to post here OR:

    2. I am still hoping that someone with authority will contact me regarding a specific post about the Heifer Project “Adam’s Ark” charity opportunity!!!

    YOU DECIDE! Then, PLEASE contact me at:

    It’s probably #1…
    Love and Tropical Dreams,
    Princess and Adam

    • Yes please let’s keep at this! As of this morning we raised $200, since Tuesday!

      So glad you are taking good care of Adam, Princess.

      • Princessshakeitup says:

        As a man once said to me on a trip to the Cayman Islands [MUCH to the delight of my husband] I will leave him, “smiling and walkin’ slow!”
        He’s in good hands!

    • Farzana says:

      Oh! How I would love to be your assistant in the #1 scenario…I could pick you up after you faint with the screaming! I was a nurse in a “former life” so I know how to deal with others hysteria…not too sure about mine! LOL

      Truly, guys, is anyone out there seeing the fabulous opportunity with “Adam’s Ark”? Let’s continue the love revolution he has started and forget the negative rumor mongers!

      We, his dedicated fans, are the ones who can shine a light on the integrity and sincerity of this gifted performer!! In his KISS 108 interview he was asked about receiving fan gifts and his reply was to the effect that he would prefer his fans give to a charity and give him evidence that they have done so with a form of receipt. This would show appreciation for his concerts.

      Now, the man has spoken!

      I would love to show this man how much he means to me by giving him a gift that would have lasting meaning, wouldn’t you?

      Personally, I think this reveals a sterling quality of Adam in that he remembers others and is considerate of their needs! (How else would he be – as reflected in his performances?)

      Let’s give back to him by reflecting his goodness into the world. The Heifer Project – “Adam’s Ark” is a fabulous opportunity to provide economic assistance to thousands across the globe in his name. It only takes a few dollars to contribute to the cause, certainly, the amounts can be any you wish. The more people that contribute the larger the final benefit. For international fans, any currency is accepted per their web site.You can read about it all on:

      Adam’s Ark….has a nice message for the world through your love dollars! Wouldn’t you like to be one of the people that puts a smile on his face? If this particular project doesn’t appeal to you, then please pick a charity and give generously along with all your fellow fans!

      I believe Adam’s fans are one of a kind and we can demonstrate this abundantly to the negative elements that try to tear away at his unique character/talents.

      I, for one, feel inspired by him. What about you? If you feel the same, then join the fans that support “Adam’s Ark.” His personality and talents have inspired me to elaborate my zeal for him in this post! Can you feel the love?

    • adamfan says:

      I heard they are both true haha!!

  14. Adam I was sure they kept you last at the finally and then you were not ther. Everyone I talked to could not believe you were not on there. You are the show. They did you wrong. I hate rumors and lies , no reason for it. They are all jealous. You are great, so whatever. You did it again talk of the town.

  15. This is so out of topic, but I was wondering if Adam can read everyone’s tweets. I follow him on Twitter and send him tweets once in a while. I know he’s too busy to respond, but I was at least hoping he could read his tweets from his fans.

    Does anyone know? I’m not very familiar with Twitter. I just log on to check what my handsome singer is up to.

    • ellen #447 says:

      Adam can read every tweet he receives if you address your tweet @adamlambert. Problem is he gets hundreds of tweets an hour . Sometimes he randomly answers someone. When that happens, that person flails forever with excitement ! He definitely lurks often on twitter because he seems aware of what drama is going on almost daily !

  16. i thought he would not have fit in as i think he is moving faster and doing better then most of the ones that have won so far. I have a gut feeling he will pass up and do better then any other. He would have def been the shining light on ai if he was there. im happy he is more concerned with his fans. I know he set the bar so high i really could barely get threw this season and have no plans to watch next year expecially with simon being gone… this was the first year since clay i didnt vote…
    BTW does anyone know if adam even sees our posts on twitter if he is not following us…

    • LuvAdam476 says:

      Tina if you put @adamlambert in your twitter message it will get to him. But whether he sees it or not is another story. When on twitter go over to the search on the right and type in @adamlambert and it will pull up all of the tweets that go to him. You can do this with anyone not just Adam.


  17. If I had read any of the shit they said about Adam, I never would have believed it and would have called them out. Adam Lambert is an honest young man who happens to have the best voice and everything else. I’m sorry that he has to be bothered with this nonsense and, especially how he’s feeling.

    Adam, no self-respecting fan would believe this crap. Rest up, when you can, and let the scum slither under the rock they came from.


  18. I believe Adam before anyone else. By the way I vowed never to watch A.I. ever again. America you got it all wrong once again , your ears must be on backwards.

  19. earlzagurl4u says:

    The Most Talked About Celebrity of the Idol Finale Was ADAM LAMBERT,,and he wasn’t even there!! PLL

  20. Adam is such a breath of fresh air. Really, with all he has on his plate he has to deal with all the jealous mental midgets, and even takes the time to give us the story. He’s almost too good to be true. He’s such a decent, talented human. What a blessing in these crazy times. I have tickets to see Adam at 4 of his Glam Nation concerts. I saw him for the first time in Indio and have yet to recover. This man is a rate and precious gift to us all. Love you, Adam.

  21. I’m so, so, SO happy that Adam is working so hard for us. It just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside–Oh, I love the glamily. 🙂

    I’m starting to get really sick of all the BS too. And I totally trust Adam–I’ll listen to hijm beofre anyone else. So many people are targeting Adam for no good reason–And people wonder why we’re so protective!!!! *exasperated growl/sigh* I hope they give him a break soon, because God, does he need it. He works so hard and on top of that he’s climbing an uphill battle–He most definitely deserves any break and any success he gets!

    Regardless, Adam is such a strong character and I’m proud he’s defending himself so well. I’m incredibly excited for the Glam Nation Tour and I truly appreciate that he’s being so careful to make it the best thing possible for his fans. Oh Adam, this is why we love you! 🙂 ? I’m also stoked–for both him and his fans– that he’s going international! AHHHHHHHHHHHH~!!! *goes beserk* Is it just me or do you feel like something HUGE is going to happen for Adam soon–like he’s going to take off more than ever before and finally be appreciated like he deserves (because even though he’s successful now, he deservees WAY more)? Ahhhh~ I can totally feel it… I’m just waiting, waiting….

    I wished Adam was at AI, even if just to see his smile. But after finding out that he strained his voice, I’d rather he took care of himself, like he’s doing. So I’m fine that he wasn’t there– Though if he was I’m sure he probably would have stolen the show. 🙂
    @earlzagurl4u Really?!?!? See what I mean!!! Haha!


      And yet I must add to it:
      I must say, I really enjoy Adam’s little “Tweet-fests.” I find his rants so cute and enjoyable, and very true. 😀 Just another reason I love Adam! ?

    • Ephyne, you are probably right about Adam stealing the show. That’s what I was thinking. Can you imagine if he would have sung “Sleepwalker” or “If I Had You”?

      As it is, I felt embarrassed for this year’s contestants, especially when Adam performaed. His explosive performance had to have put the contestants to shame especially when Ryan exclaimed, “Now that’s a performance!”

    • retrogrrrl says:

      Just wait until after the video for “If I Had You” drops. Right now other countries are pushing Wahtaya Want From Me to the top of the charts. When If I Had You hits, the Lambertmania will go global and those of us lucky enough to be going to the GlamNation shows will see history in the making. I can feel it too. As they say you reap what you sow and Adam has worked his cute little arse off to make sure this is the most spectacular show EVER and he will soon reap the rewards of that hard work & dedication! Elvis had haters when he began his career, and England embraced Bowie before America knew who he was. ADAM’S TIME IS COMING! I gotta tell ya, while I was watching the Idol finale this year, during the commercials I was watching my DVD of the finale LAST year, and when Adam was singing “Change is Gonna Come” it gave me chills, because I know it’s gonna happen for him in a BIG WAY.
      Love you Adam, I hope you have a nice break & take care of yourself, get well soon puddin’ !
      I’ll be going nutz for you in the pit at Seattle & Portland! Stay fabulous boo! XXX

  22. glamaus says:

    ADAM says it right down the line….no holds barred! Such an admirable trait ….love it!
    (so Aussie!) ……. There’s no time for trivial moments (negativity uses so much wasted energy),
    …. ADAM has a GLAM NATION TOUR both here and overseas to blow out the water ……………..
    ……so total P O S I T I V I T Y is the only way to go! Time to throw the GLITTER and prepare for the most amazing year ever!

  23. American Idol is so over and Adam is just beginning! lets all focus on the future and all of the great and inspiring things that are coming up this year on the Glam Nation tour! I can’t wait Tampa Bay!!!

  24. hey their friend u r so true to the heart (yes) ur the real deal tell it like it is stay up friend enjoy

  25. ianaleah says:

    I am happy Michael Slezak published the info. I think it is important to stop negative comments as soon as possible.” Silence speaks consent-” that old maxim still stands strong. Saying and doing nothing is allowing error/wrongness to spread. Merely correcting it with facts, dealing with the issue/behavior without attacking the person/personality works .I just admire and respect Adam so much because he is a very enlightened person. Thanks Slezak, movin’ on now. Still counting days till his concert. I’m going to put purple in my hair, got my glitter and sparkly outfit. Going out of my head 🙂

  26. This is a tough business. Hang in there and stay focused. We all have your back.

  27. Does Adam or his management read our posts? I hope so….then he must know the impact he is having on us all.

    Adam, if you do read our comments….I would like to say

    Thank you for being the change. You inspire me to be braver when I stand up for diversity and NOH8. The world needs you…

    Thank you for the entertainment. My life has more joy in it now. Your music lifts me up!

  28. Adam…you’re sooo lucky that you weren’t apart of AI’s Finale…the only high point was Bret Michaels & Casey…Acually they were probably aware that you would of stolen the show!!!!

  29. Ima Ramorah says:

    Adam haters (have extended it to the Glambers as well) will always be in abundance.
    He is recognized all over the world as a super STAR has been on a exhausting dizzying schedule
    yet here in the US the adam-phobes can’t wait to trash him.

    I don’t consider them *journalist* except of the pissy yellow variety.

  30. sun-n-stars says:

    I feel so sad for Adam. Why can’t they just give it a rest. Thank goodness there are honest people in the world who will report the truth. He is so open and honest. Naysayers have to fabricate something to try and bring him down. I get sick of it. Love you Adam and can’t wait to see you in Virginia!!!!

  31. peggyGlamb#345 says:

    I really don’t think Adam missed much on Idol…Brett Michaels was the highlight….I am one who gets agravated at negative press and really who beleives most of it…Idiots….and Adam had said he wasn’t going to be on there so I believed him…..Lets look at the tour, I got 4 cities I and my daughters are going to and we are ready….To see him in person again is my goal…..

  32. Patti Ross says:

    Thanks Michael for this… Adam’s true fans know he is not in anyway a diva or would be sneaky to put an AMA “hide your children” performance on. Where do jealous minds travel to???

    Crystal should have won in my opinion. It seems this country likes these soulful Michael McDonald SP? voices. Now we have similar voices , Cook ,Kris ( less so) & Lee and earlier Hicks. All really nice voices but Crystal was different and clearly has more to her voice, more power, more charisma as an entertainer. She clearly beat Lee on Tues and Weds night. Maybe the right person won as it is clear Crystal (and Adam) will have a long careers dreadlocks and all. Lee like Kris could have faded away more easily but because they have the “title” have a better chance of staying around although it hasn’t helped Taylor Hicks that much.

    So looking forward to Adams tour. Have seen him 7 times now and he blows me away with his creativity and vocal acrobatics. For those that don’t like his dancers I’m sure there are many who would like your seats. I love them and watching Adam move with them is… well, mesmerizing! We are in for are treat!

  33. Adam is going to Europe how cool is that. Hard work and excellence will aways be rewarded.

    • libraglam says:

      It’s great to see ADAM going INTERNATIONAL.

      I am in the SF Bay Area but i also want to see ADAM in Brazil….people are wild there…i want to see how wild it is with ADAM :-))) It’s gonna be fun to watch !

      Our daily life is pretty “serious”. Those who have jobs, headed to “serious” work everyday. I am surrounded by “serious” people. That’s enuf for me, so i dont’ want to watch more ” serious” stuff on my leisure time. Otherwise i just watch myself in the mirror ! It’s boring! I love to see somthing different ! And what ADAM brings to us is…..! That’s entertainment ! Since the day ADAM came to my life, i love to see myself in the mirror better and look forward for different things ADAM bring to us !!!

      Let’s loose, be positive and enjoy life ! * Smille* Enjoy the weekend !!

  34. so what says:

    so what that Adam was not on idol this last week. Adam is a entertainer for sure, and has a great voice, but AI is still a family show and in my opinion he has proven in the past that his television appearance on a certian award show was less than family friendly. So perhaps he should just stick to concerts, where fans that appreciate his style and over the top theactrics prefail……just sayin….

  35. Samantha Rosalie Cannon says:

    You have to lurve Adam. It sucks that people make up bs like that. “Sick of certain journalists and jealous people in the industry trying to stir up bullshit drama. Must not be getting laid. GET A LIFE! HAHA ” lmao at that. I was sad he wasn’t on the finale though I came home early cauz I though he would be. It sucks I’m going to miss the glamnation tour cauz I’ll be in el hospital, you should have heard the doctor’s receptionist when I was asking if I would be healed enough to go to the concert, defently thought I was insane.

  36. PaulaGlam says:

    Amazing! Adam causes controversy just by staying home. That’s GOT to be the sign of a superstar!

  37. PaulaGlam says:

    I am patiently waiting for July 21st, Portland Glam Tour. I feel like a little kid waiting for Christmas day!!!
    Adam get some rest and forget all the rumors. Congratulations on your European Billboard Charts that it shows you coming in @ #46 on the HOT 100, number # 1 for WWFM in Finland, Germany and Austria, JOB WELL DONE and this is just the beginning, FAN FOR LIFE.

  38. adamfan says:

    This is off topic, but my other friends do not follow
    On Ellen today, Crystal said her boyfriend broke up with
    her just before the finale. How mean is that!
