I Love You Adam

Posted by: un-pc lesbian

In amongst the continuing earthquake news today a fabulous new story was released that had me squealing with joy, Adam Lambert is going to perform in October. Oh swoon, swoon, uber swoon.

My adoration of the boy began very early on in the Idol season that he competed in. I don’t recall his audition, but my first memory of him was in the pre Hollywood show when the contestants had been split between four rooms during one of the elimination rounds. My eye was caught by this young androgynous person, and my first thought was ooOOoo what gender is that. I quickly realised that it didn’t matter as gender indeterminate is perfect.

I totally became number one supporter on team Adam with his performance of Ring of Fire

Then of course there’s the infamous standing ovation from Mr Hard Arse (or is it Mr Moobs?) for Mad World.

And even when he’s stripped back and minus the glam he is still uber hot

Along the way he made Paula cry with his rendition of I Can’t Have You, but my all time favourite Idol performance was this one

Yes, yes I have put that clip up here before, and yes I am obsessively playing it over and over while I write this.

We must remember however that he DIDN’T win the competition, anyone remember who did?

During the Idol season he didn’t hide his sexuality and openly confirmed it in the Rolling Stone cover interview after the show finished. I think his total honesty and lack of artifice about his sexual preference continued to endear him to the masses. His honesty was such that he survived his infamous “in the moment” actions at the American Music Awards, and then rather than buckle to pressure he stood up and said what he believed, “Female performers have been doing this for years—pushing the envelope about sexuality—and the minute a man does it, everybody freaks out. We’re in 2009—it’s time to take risks, be a little more brave, time to open people’s eyes and if it offends them, then maybe I’m not for them. My goal was not to piss people off, it was to promote freedom of expression and artistic freedom.” Go Adam!!

    I too adore Adam F Lambert! I cannot wait to see him live as the voice is apparantly incredible…the whole freakin package is yummy…I’m a dyke who can’t get enuf of him. There’ll be a lot of screaming at that concert i reckon.

    Loved reading your blog!! I followed Adam from his audition - he totally hooked me with ToMT. Joined AI forums, joined AO, and been there ever since!! I posted a thread in the forum here last year when he was on AO. I’m going to Sydney and Brisbane concerts, but not NZ one, funnily enough. Notice of that one came out too late for me - too hard flying back to Wellington very early and then having to face a class full of kids! Enjoy the concert!!

    Hiya Vanity Rules :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHN51MtHDTI&feature=related

    He sang two songs - MJ’s I Wanna Rock With You and Queen’s Bohemian Rapsody - I’m very pleased he sang the second - didn’t like the first much :)

    Cor…you truly are a devoted fan…..running off to check them out now….

  • 9 elorac // Sep 19, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    I got myself a M & G with Adam in Brisbane :) so now I get to meet him in person. What to say????? I’m sure you can suggest something haha!!

  • 10 un-pc lesbian // Sep 20, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    I LOVE YOU ADAM!!! is there anyhthing else? Oh go you elorac. How did you manage to score that?

  • 11 elorac // Sep 21, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    I bought it!! Been on adamofficial fan site (run by 19E - free) since May last year, and another official paying one (runs side by side with adamofficial)started up 1 Sep. You had to join that - I just paid a $10 fee - in order to get in to buy a M&G. I figured I may as well spend some more, since I had already blown my budget on gowing to OZ!

  • 12 un-pc lesbian // Sep 21, 2010 at 8:33 pm

    Go elorac - you’ll have a blast. Will expect photo’s.

    Hey Vanity Rules
    And others
    Thanks for those link :D
    I love Adam’s nervousness in the chair incident haha, he was just to adorable. I love him as well, maybe its becuase he is just so darn truthful and honest, and he does not care what anyone thinks at all, and you have to admire that quality in anyone. He just carries it superbly.

  • 14 un-pc lesbian // Sep 30, 2010 at 6:20 pm

    Yup, honesty and openness goes a long way.

  • 15 elorac // Oct 15, 2010 at 6:35 pm

    Hey everyone There’s a rumour that Adam is appearing on Australian X Factor next Monday night in Aussie, which means NZ will see the show next Friday night. He’s appearing in the elimination round. Matt (mod on this site) is over in Oz at the mo - he’s going to see Adam - and will check it out to see if it’s happening. They may even advertise it on tonight’s show - don’t know. I’ve included another clip - this is Adam performing on the Idol tour last year. In the finale, normally he and Kris ascended the stage together, but this night Kris was sick, so Adam did it alone :)

    ooOOOooo thanks for that. Have a great time in Oz at his shows elorac. Glam Hard!

    Hey un-pc lesbian - I just had to post this. Adam sang FYE live in his Hong Kong concert - He never sang that live in his GN tour of the US, as far as I know. I so hope he sings this in Auckland tomorrow and in Sydney and Brissie. You enjoy the concert tomorrow night, and make sure you write a recap here - or start a new blog!! :)

    whimper whimper, I’m not going to the concert. Will have to rely on the feedback of others.

  • 20 elorac // Oct 19, 2010 at 6:39 pm

    oh, un-pc, what happened?? Why didn’t you end up going?? I shall let you know how I get on - possibly not til next week. Here’s the clip of Adam on X Factor last night in Australia to cheer you up, if you haven’t seen it already. It shows here this Friday night.

    I have an extremely large tax bill that is taking all my frittering loot. Tickets, airfares, a car repair, and a teenager that broke it’s new boots in 6 weeks meant no Adam for me. I am relying on you to provide all the feedback!!!

    I will be glued on Friday night.

  • 22 elorac // Nov 1, 2010 at 9:48 pm

    Hey un-pc - I’m back from seeing (and meeting) Adam hehe!! Have the pic to prove it, wrinkles (mine) and all! But don’t know how to post any pics here in your blog. Also saw Rufus and Leonard in Wellytown this past weekend - what an absolute blast!!! I have NEVER seen three such beautiful performers in such a short time. Can I post pics in your blog, or do I need to start one myself??
