I waited with great anticipation for last night’s On the Record with Fuse interview with Adam Lambert last night. I was looking forward to learning new glamorous details about him. My heart was starting to pound as the minutes were counting down closer to broadcast. Then, they played the For Your Entertainment video and I felt a sense of “rightness with the world.”
The video immediately led into the beginning of the interview. Ahh, he looked great, didn’t he? And he sounded very willing to reveal more about his sparkly self. But as the questions kept coming, I sadly realized nothing new was coming. But then, what was I expecting? After all, how much more about Adam can we hard core fans learn? I must admit, the piece about Adam being interested in looking at the boys in the 6th grade locker room caught me off guard. This was another example of Adam’s “open door” policy about himself. And also the fact that his mother had given him his own cardboard box of theatre makeup.
I was a bit surprised when they were talking about the pictures that came out during Top 13 and how Adam had been afraid they might put an end to his Idol bid. I wasn’t surprised by that news, but by the picture they used. Instead of the pictures we all saw of Adam kissing former boyfriend Brad Bell, they showed a picture of Adam and Drake kissing shortly before their relationship ended. I could hear you all screaming too!
I truly appreciate any opportunity to see Adam, whether he’s talking or singing. And On the Record with Fuse gave me just that! As I write this, it is 2 minutes away from the debut of the new season of American Idol. I don’t know if I can watch. I don’t want to spend an evening full of smarkiness, commenting on how the new contestants can’t hold a candle to Adam. But we knew that about 2 episodes into last season!
