I Just Received My Autographed Picture From Adam!

So, I opened the front door this afternoon, and received a very happy surprise! It was the self-addressed, stamped envelope that I enclosed when I sent Adam the engraved Ice Cream Dipper and requested a photo. I know you’ve all heard about this gift: there’s a YouTube video shot at the radio station when I asked Adam if he received it, thanks to my very good friend Lila. I’ve posted pictures from that day too, and that scene was even pictured in the May 25 People Magazine!

I very excitedly opened the envelope, careful not to damage what I hoped was inside. I pulled out a gorgeous picture of Adam. I can tell it was taken when he performed Satisfaction the first time, trying for votes to get into the Top 12. He’s dressed in all black, complete with several gold chains and necklaces. He  has a  microphone in hand and a full-on smile, so I think it was when he was receiving the judges’ comments. Well, not Simon’s, if memory serves me correctly! This was when we first heard the “self-indulgent rubbish” remark referring to the beginning of the performance!

The picture is a 5×7 computer print framed with a white border, on a full-sized sheet of photo paper. At the top, he wrote “Thanks Carol!” and he signed the bottom, Adam Lambert. I compared this signature to the self-made Adam Lambert CD I had him sign when he was exiting the radio station on Homecoming Day. On that day, he was in a hurry and his signature was rushed. The only letters you can clearly make out are the capital A, the capital L and closing “t.” However, on the picture I received today, the entire name is clearly legible, like the signature on the iTunes picture. I compared those two signatures closely, and was happy to see this is a fresh signature, not a printed version.

OOOHHHH – I’m so excited!! I think the last “fan club” I joined was when I was in elementary school – and it was for the “Shrimpenstein” TV show!! While that show had a very catchy theme song, I’d trade my “45” in a hundred times over to hear Adam sing again!

I’d love to share in your excitement too, so if you’ve received something from Adam, please don’t be shy!


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! :)


  1. OMG!!! ;alskfgjaldkfjgaldkfjg Am so happy for you 😀 I stopped whatever I was doing and rushed to the computer as soon as I read dreamsound’s tweet xD Wheeee~ 😀

    I’m happy to be the first to congratulate you! What a cool, cool surprise to arrive on your doorstep. I am SOOOOOOOOO jealous, but hopefully someday I can get his autograph, too.

  3. Star Catcher says:

    Congrats! I would die to recieve something that spectacular in the mail. -Dances-

  4. Congrats Carol, I’m sure you would keep that pic and signature in the safest place. You know it might worth millions 50 years from now. He’s gonna be a LEGEND.

  5. Oh Carol. Congrats! Congrats!
    Im soooooo jealous now.
    If only I was staying in the US.

    Adam, please come to Singapore!

  6. That’s awesome that you got a response from Adam! It definitely shows how important his fans are to him! I’ve been wanting to send a letter to Adam, however I’m having troubles on finding a legit address. I have the American Idol one, but I didn’t know if that was as legit as legit can get? Thank you!

    I have been waiting for mine too. How long did it take to get it ? mishelle

    • Carol Hagey says:

      Hi Mishelle,
      I sent the package with the photo request on April 20th. I sent it 2-Day Priority Mail. When I saw him at the Homecoming on May 8th I asked him if he’d received the Ice Cream Dipper. That’s when he turned right to me and said “Yes, I LOVE it!” So that was 18 days later. I received the signed picture back yesterday, May 27th. Nothing is visible on the postmark except the number 26, so I imagine it was sent May 26th. I’m in San Diego, 150 miles south of Los Angeles, so it only took one day. Unless he was visiting his family in San Diego and mailed it himself! Ha Ha Ha! When I addressed the envelope to myself, I didn’t put anything for the Return Address. I was hoping maybe he’d put his name (dream on!) or American Idol, or they’d stamp it Project 19 or something. But it was still blank when it arrived.

      He probably took all his fan mail with him while they’ve been touring all the talk shows. I imagine it was a good distraction during all the travel time, and all the “hurry up and wait” time. Like on the morning shows, they kept dragging them out on the street to say “coming up”, then we didn’t see them perform for over an hour.

      Hope you get your picture soon!

  8. Carol, you bitch, I would rip that and use it as toilet paper. It’s worthless compared to a Kris Allen autograph.

    • cmhagey says:

      Oh Frank, tsk tsk. Adam’s fans are always generous with their praise of Kris. Or they’re silent. Can you please follow suit?

    • Kris who?

    • hine100 says:

      Frank who?

      • AdamAddict says:

        TO:Frank with a low IQ,
        I feel sorry for you! Now go eat you own shit,BITCH!

    • Yeah, and I’d hope that you’d get a huge papercut in your a-hole if you did, jerk! Kris ain’t my favorite but I don’t hate him and especially not his fans. Go find a heart and a brain to go with it!

  9. Frank you’re a fool.

  10. How? Just how? I want one, too. Please tell me.

  11. hine100 says:

    Way 2 go Michelle that you are making what you want happen for you. Congratulations!!!!! I won’t say you’re so lucky because you’ve made your own luck.
    Anyway, where did you send for it?? C’mon shares pleasseee!!!!!! 😀

  12. hine100 says:

    Dreamsound, thanks once again for all your efforts re Adam on twitter and this site, once again awesome job. I divide my time between your site and Adam’s official, and when I’m on facebook and myspace catchup with his stuff on Adams profiles in each one.

    R u seriously trying out for AI? If you are I’m looking out 4 U. Keep this name so we know u.

  13. What’s the address we’d send something?

    • frodo325 says:

      Hi Deamsound and Michelle–
      I too would like to simply send Adam a letter of appreciation. I am having serious surgery on June 16th and would hope that what I write could be read by him before that date–I know weird– but it is important to me that I communicate what I want to say to him before the surgery.

      So how should I go about that. I have his 19 Entertainment snail mail address in Hollywood but chances are an assistant only reads those first and then who knows when he would see it IF she or he would choose to show it to him. I was told that this is the usual case and now that he is so famous this is probably the case.

      I don’t have high hopes about his seeing my letter but thought you guys might have a suggestion.
      Thank you for this wonderful site.
      Marty R.
