*** UPDATE: Adam nicely says he thinks that is some people just talking shit when asked if he was a diva and that’s just how it goes :
It was sadly inevitable. With the success of an individual comes that army of low-lifes determined to bring him down. I don’t understand their motives, but their weapons are gossip, rumor, and lies. How do we spot these? Look for unsubstantiated claims, unknown sources, and outlets with an obvious bias.
Most of you have probably already seen the online articles regarding Adams supposed diva-like behavior. Courtney Hazlett of MSNBC quotes unknown sources that say Adam is a diva and rude to everyone, from fans to lighting folks. Media outlets all over the web have thrown gasoline on the story, and the trash fire is burning, folks. Thankfully there are voices of reason – responsible journalists and bloggers as well as Adam fans all over – who are coming to his defense. See http://mjsbigblog.com/is-adam-lambert-a-diva.htm for all the speculation regarding this story.
I wondered what we could do as a group on this site, and I thought that one thing we could do would be to start a thread of personal experiences with Adam – a permanent log detailing fan or professional interaction with Adam that shows him as the man we all believe him to be – humble, polite, always with a smile, and willing to go the extra mile for his fans. This could include any of you who saw Adam during his homecoming (ahem, guys – you know who you are), during press week, or during a show. Maybe you were at a taping, in the crowd, or got his autograph. The log of comments may start out short (how many of us have been lucky enough to see Adam in person?), but as the tour starts and more of us have the chance to see and/or meet him, I’m sure it will grow.
This is our ammunition against those who would spread lies about Adam. Anyone wanting to know how Adam really acts has only to come here and see the proof of personal experience. If you’ve had such an experience and are willing to share, please comment with the particulars and what you heard or saw from Adam that shows him to be the person WE believe in.
