From E! Online:
Fans have taken it up a notch from throwing bras and panties at Adam Lambert during the American Idol summer tour. Now they’re tossing up sex toys. “It’s going further, and somebody threw onstage a red-leather tasseled whip,” he tells us. “Yeah, and then the next night, I got one that was made out of, like, purple fur. It’s getting really S&M.” How’s he dealing with the newfound fan freakiness? Find out…
“It interesting,” he says. “I got some glow-in-the-dark handcuffs. It’s really getting creative. It’s exciting. I think they really want me to play with these toys during the number.” So does he? “I always try to because I enjoy that,” he says. “But then somebody threw a bra on during ‘Starlight,’ and, literally, it missed my face by three inches. Yeah, I am going to be a little bit more passive-aggressive, so I decided not to even acknowledge the bra that got thrown on stage, because I didn’t want to condone the behavior.” The upside to the new X-rated projectiles? “I’m glad it was a soft material and wasn’t anything hard. I’m not really into S&M, but it’s definitely tempting.”
Here’s the video showing the toys mentioned above. This was from the Tampa show. When he tosses the handcuffs to an audience member and blows a kiss, it’s too cute!
I have no idea how performers remember all the words to their songs. But you can see in the following video shot during the Deluth, Georgia concert that even Adam is human. He was so clearly enjoying himself onstage, telling the audience “Georgia! I like it down here!” and then he laughs before introducing “Starlight.” When that bra missed his face by 3 inches it surprised him so much that he forgot where he was in the song.
At :51 he sings: “Starlight, I will be chasing your starlight . . .” and instead of “until the end of my life, I don’t know if it’s worth it anymore” he skips to: “let’s conspire to reignite all the souls that would die just to feel alive.” He stumbles a bit on his way back to the “hold you, in my arms,” chorus and from then on it’s beautiful, as usual. But I bet his mind was going a million miles an hour thinking “oh s#!t, how do I get out of this one?” I also wonder what the band thinks when they’ve realized the singer is off. But Adam is enough of an experienced professional that only those who have the lyrics memorized would know.
