They started throwing bras in Tacoma. That was the second night of the American Idol Live Tour. More flew in San Diego, Kansas City and DC. They were lacy, flowery bras and perky, polka-dotted bras, and the one that’s currently dangling directly over Adam Lambert’s head – a spongy E-cup on which some ardent fan has scrawled the initials A.L. over each giant boob. As a friendly prank, crew members have strung the bras up in the bowels beneath the stage at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois, just outside Chicago, among an abundance of other offerings – some of them X-rated. The groupies also hurles riding crops, feather boas, handcuffs, panties; it looks a little bit like a grenade went off in Frederick’s of Hollywood. “I’ve heard about Tom Jones and panties,” says Adam Lambert, who has come down to survey the haul. “But me and panties, that’s just a little bit freaky.” He points to a jockstrap on which someone has written in sequins JOCKS LOVE ADAM. “Oh,” he says wryly. “They do?” To the showman in Lambert, a six-foot-one Pan of a man with deep-set blue eyes and a shock of jet-black-and-blue emo-style hair, it’s all part of the spectacle. “A lot of times I’ll pick up a bra and play with it during a song,” he says “It’s a way to connect. It’s like, ‘I threw my bra up on stage and you’re spinning it around. Cool. Yay.’”
Still, he says, ” I think it’s weird that I’m having this effect on women. It’s flattering. I’ve never had underwear thrown at me before. Clearly there’s something significant about it, because there aren’t a lot of openly gay men in the entertainment industry.”
It’s a testament to the sheer mainstream appeal of American Idol that a gay man with an unabashed affection for eyeliner and nailpoilish has emerged from this years competition as a new American sex symbol. “I think it’s beautiful, ” Lambert says. “That’s the way it should be. It shouldn’t matter what a person’s sexual preference is – it doesn’t change their appeal.”
In the end, Americans of every persuasion proved themselves defenseless against Lambert’s vigorous pelvic exertions. “When I’m onstage,” he says, “there’s definitely a sexual energy that goes into it.” Indeed, he gyrated his way through performances like Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love with a libidinous abandon that’s rarely seen on primetime network television. Moral majorities found his style scandalous, but Lambert offers no apologies.
I have no problem telling people, “‘You know what? I’m not your babysitter and I’m not your church’, ” he says. “They go ‘Jesus loves you, too.’ One time I just blurted out ‘I’m Jewish, okay? I don’T need another crucifix! That’s not an appropriate gift for me!’” He laughs. “I know people ar coming from a good place, but it can be offensive. Like, ‘Thank you, I’m not Christian! I don’t read that book.’”
Nor does he beg forgiveness for his outrageous costumes, which often look like cast-offs from a Vegas production of Mad Max. “There’s a certain level of pageantry with Idol and in order to work the show, you kind of have to feed into it,” he says. Some say the 27-year-old even upstaged KISS during their Idol visit, outshining them with his soaring rock-tenor vocals and Bowie-lite stage presence.
Undeniably, it was his voice – shich has been compared favorably to those of Robert Plant and Freddie Mercury – that got him a shot on Idol, but it was his savvy that helped him stay there and eventually steal the show. The gay speculation that surrounded him, shich he never shied away from, probably didn’t hurt, either.
Although he didn’t win the competition – “It doesn’t freaking matter who won it,” says Lambert, the runner-up – it got him what he wanted: a platform of which to launch a singing career. And fame.
When the season ended, he was awarded a sis-figure recording contract with 19 Entertainment, the company that owns Idol and puts out the Albums of headliners, like Clay Aiken and Kelly Clarkson. Simon Fuller, the Great Oz behind the show and one of the most successful producers in history (Idol sales alone have generated close to $100 million), explains Lamberz’s appeal as a matter of genuinely unique talen and natural charisma.
“His voice is second to none,” Fuller says. “It’s up there with the all-time great singers I’ve come across. Many millions of people have already fallen in love with him. He’s got that glint in his eye, wheter you’re gay , whatever, it’s just attractive. He’s just a very sexual guy – and he’s not threathening to women.”
Lambert’s groupies on the Idol Live Tour follow gim across the country, offering him clothes and books and Jewelery . and they’ve tried to give him other things.
“There was one woman in Jersey who was actually gorgeous,” says Lambert. “She had obviously had a couple of c***tails, and during an after-show meet-and-greet, she just slithered up next to me and started kissing my neck. I was cool with it. But then it started to get a little weird because she was, like, moaning. She gave me a note that said, !I want to make out with you, here’s my number,’ and I was like, wow, this is crazy. But again, it’s cool. Because yeah, I’m gay, but I like kissing women sometimes. Women are pretty. It doesn’t mean im necessarily sleeping with them. Of course, had I been the one drinking c***tails,” he adds, “I probably would’ve made out with her.”
He says it wouldn’t matter to his 24-year-old boyfriend, whom he won’t discuss except to say that he’s “Cajun” and has “swagger” (“I like ‘em smaller and younger,” Lambert says mischieviously.)
He smiles. “I don’t see how all of this is different than – let’s take a modern sex-symbol like Brad Pitt. How many of the women who fantasize about him actually sleep with him?” he asks. “It’s all fantasy – that’s what entertainment is. I’m here to entertain you, and if my sexuality is apparent and you respond to it, and you’re attracted to it, then great, I’m doing my job. It ain’t happening anyway!”
His road manager arrives to hustle him off to get ready for the show. “It takes him a little longer because he’s totally on girl-time,” she says affably.
“I like to get real pretty, ” Lambert says.
Lambert grew up in an affluent suburb of San Diego, his parents were laid back baby-boomers – his mother was a dental hygienist and his father a supervisor at a telecommunications company – who didn’t freak out when their little boy exhibited a fondness for singing show tunes and gamboling around in capes. Which might explain why, two decades later, Lambert could sit up in front of a somber Chris Conelly on 20/20 and tell him how comfortable he is with his sexuality.
“Get into it b****es!” he says now, laughing. “I’m not hiding anything. At least I can say that I’m honest.”
But growing up, he says, he felt different, and he didn’t always like the way he looked. In high school, he battled acne and his weight.
“I really struggled with my self-image for a long time,” he says.
“I thought I was ugly. So that’s probably where all the makeup and dyeing of hair stemmed from.” (He’s really a redhead.)
After a few weeks as a musical.theater major at a college in Orange County, he left to star in a play in San Diego. He came out at 18, but he was still a virging and “actually very lonely,” he says. At 19, he worked as a singer in a musical revue on a cruise ship for a year. “That showed me the world,” he says. “And I got to do a lot of shopping. It affects your perpective like crazy. Somewhere in the South Pacific I saw a really poor Third World island and I was like, ohhhh. I had never senn that. I was kind of like, upper-middle-class and white-bread.”
He lost his virginity on his 21st birthday, in Hollywood, where he had mooved to pursue a singing career. The same year, he travelled for six months in the European production of Hair. In 2004, he got great reviews playing Joshua in an ill-fated musical production of The Ten Commandments at the Kodak Theater in Los angeles, alongside Val Kilmer. But, he says, he felt he wasn’t really getting anywhere.
He fell into a depression somewhere in 2006. “I got out of my first relationship and I was kinda downward-spirally,” he says. “I was destructive, just numbing myself out.” He started partying ar nightclubs like Hyde and sleeping around a bit – or, as he describes it, ” being a slutbag.”
He was also drinking, “smoking a crap ton of weed” and doing coke. “It was everywhere,” he says. “And I’m not gonna lie, I had some fun, but it’s never worth it the next days physically.”
In 2007, he was cast in the chorus of the national tour of Wicked abd finally making enough money to support himself – about $1800 a week. “But I was burned out on the show,” he says. ” Wicked was humbling. I was an understudy. I didn’t get to go on that much.”
That summer, on a spiritual quest of sorts, he went to the Burning Man Festival in the Nevada desert. While on acid for the first time, he says, “I had a spiritual epiphany about the world and where I fit into it and wat I’m supposed to be doing. And my epiphany was, I can’t be afraid anymore, I have to take life by the balls and make crap happen.”
When he got back to L.A., he decided to try out for American Idol.
Lambert’s entrance onto the stage of the Allstar Arena is preceded by some booming thunderclap sound effects (and a) screen lit up in pulsating red lights that look like the electronic fires of hell. Twenty thousand fans unleash blood-curdling screams. And they’re not all girls. There are dudes – straight dudes (that) look up to the stage with expactation, wanting to see this guy, who held his own, even singing with KISS and Queen: their bands.
Lamberts swaggers onto the stage (amidst) a near-seizure-inducing light sequence, wearing a leather jacket with spiked shoulders. He launches into his trademark Zeppelin number with gusto, then plunges the mic stand between his legs and (strokes) it up and down as if testing his manhood. The crowd goes insane.
Now the women are throwing bras at him. They come zooming up from every which way. Here comes a pink feather boa. Lambert picks it up and swings it around his head. When a brightly coloredbeach ball arrives, he gives it a swift, hard kick into the crowd. Not a girly kick, either.
Outside, after the show, 26-year-old Cara is waiting in front of the stage door with about a hundred other teen girls and their moms.
“He’s sexy as hellllll,” she says. “He’s a freaking badass.”
“Adam Lambert is the perfect man,” sighs 15-year-old Jennifer.
The next day, Lambert sets out for a walk around Chicago. HE’s reclutant to go at first because, he says, “They will mob…” And they do. In their own polite way, because they’re Midwesterners. They want to praise and congratulate him and take pictures with him. “I voted for you!” they tell him.
“There’s a feeling of entitlement (with the fans) because they voted to get us where we are,” he says, just a trifle irritated. “But you know what? I am responsible for what I created, and thank you, but I created it, you didn’t.”
A beefy guy in a sweatshirt and aviator shades approaches.
“Big fan,” he says, opening his arms for a hug.
“Oh, right on,” says Lambert, allowing himself to be embraced.
“I thought it was you!” says the man, squeezing Lambert close.
It would be hard to miss him. Lambert is wearing an outfit that looks like Johnny Rotten’s closet had an orgy with Prince’s dry cleaning. “Nobody tells you how to do this – there’s no handbook for, like, inta-fame,” he says as we walk away. “I’m just trying to be nice and responsible.”
At a quiet Italian restaurant, he discusses the phenomenon of his “jock” appeal. “Maybe it’s the thing of being, like, confident in who you are, which cuts across the lines of gender and sexual orientation,” he says.
Or maybe jocks just like the way he sings – and Lambert intends to keep it that way. “I just want to entertain,” he says, “I don’t want [my music] to be a political or social thing right away. Eventually, I would love to mess with that, but it’s a tricky road. There’s a part of me that’s a businessperson and a part of me that’s an artist, and the artist wants to push buttons and break boundaries, but the businessperson goes, “Well, that doesn’t really sell albums.” I don’t want to alienate a bunch of people who would otherwise be into what I do.
For the album, 19 entertainment has paired Lambert with some of the best pop producers in the music industry, inclusing Greg Wells, who has worked with Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson. “The surprise is, that he’s also a gifted songwriter,” says Wells. Lambert plays a taste of the Album for me on his iPod. He descibes it as “(dancey) pop”. It has the kind of catchy hooks designed to go platinum.
I’m working my ass off right now,” he says. And it’s already paying off. He just rented a three bedroom house in Hollywood Heights and has his eye on a Jaguar coupe. “I’ve started looking (???) abd I’m like, ooooh. I’m not gonna lie and say money doesn’t (mean) anything to me,” he says. “It’s fun to have money. It’s nice to (buy) nice things and live comfortably, and that’s one of the reasons I wanted this. That’s one of the trade-offs of fame., it’s the American Dream.
Adam, is that you?” A woman is passing by (???????) seeing him, she stops: her hands fly to her mouth. She begins to tremble and weep. Lambert gets up to give her a hug.
“It’s going to be okay,” he tells her, laughing. “It’s really going to be okay.”

Adam Lambert: The Billboard Cover Story & Video by Ann Donahue | November 20, 2009
Less than a year after the 'American Idol' wild child burst onto the scene in an explosion of glitter and leather, Adam Lambert readies his first album. Plus: a Q&A with 'Idol' victor Kris Allen.
Adam Lambert-the man with the outsize personality who delivered an audacious octave-and-a-half sitar-tinged purr of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" on the most-watched TV show in the country, dodged sex toys thrown at him onstage during the "American Idol" tour and did it all without smearing his eyeliner-is currently curled in the fetal position.
Balled up in a patio chair on the 10th-story balcony at 19 Entertainment in Los Angeles, Lambert is the portrait of the goth as a young man-black clothes and combat boots; dyed black hair and nail polish; Egyptian-themed jewelry matching the Eye of Horus tattoo on his wrist. He grabs his knees and constricts himself even tighter as he reveals why he's so emo right now: He's attending the premiere of the film "2012" in a few hours. And his song, "Time for Miracles," plays over the closing credits.
LAMBERT PHOTO GALLERY | LISTEN TO "FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT"
"I'm going to be like this, in my seat, hiding in my popcorn bucket," he says. "It's going to be really weird." Lambert laughs, unfurls his legs and straightens up in the chair. His worry is, of course, all a joke, an act, a performance. Because, true to his album title, Lambert is here for our entertainment.
When "American Idol" launched in 2002, creator Simon Fuller must have dreamed of a contestant like the 27-year-old Lambert -- one that mixes style and substance, one that can sing anything and gives a damn about cultivating his public image. In a year, Lambert's gone from being one of a herd of auditioners at the San Francisco tryouts to landing the covers of Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone before his album was even released.
For 19 Entertainment, the eighth season of "American Idol" was something of an embarrassment of riches-the eventual winner, Kris Allen (see cover Q&A here) has sold 1.1 million digital downloads of his "Idol" songs, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and contestant Allison Iraheta, with her preternaturally gravelly vocals and artful red and blue hair is prepared to court the Hayley Williams/Avril Lavigne demographic.
But in a year when the clubby stylings of Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas are setting sales records, it's Lambert's slinky set of dance songs that are poised to steal the spotlight. "For Your Entertainment" will be released Nov. 23; the title track lead single sold 18,000 in its first week of release, according to SoundScan, while "Time for Miracles" has sold 68,000 in three weeks. This comes on top of the 997,000 digital tracks sold of Lambert's songs from "Idol."
"He's an artist with a true sense of who he is," RCA Music Group GM/executive VP Tom Corson says. "It's our job to work with him and present him with options to help steer the ship-but ultimately it's his call. He has a vision."
The cover of "For Your Entertainment" shows Lambert as a three-dimensional version of Patrick Nagel's artwork for Duran Duran's "Rio": all glam makeup and sharp angles. It's not subtle in any way-Lambert is gleeful as he points out that he wore all that makeup-but it's true to his image as a showman that combines singing talent with a theatrical bent.
It's an image he flaunted throughout "Idol"-and was never more exemplified than in Lambert's retort to judge Simon Cowell's critique that one of his performances was too "Rocky Horror." ("I like 'Rocky Horror,' " Lambert patiently explained.)
But it's rare that a persona crafted on "Idol" doesn't go through some sort of intensification as the performers transition from contestant to professional: Texas cutie Kelly Clarkson took on a pop sheen; Carrie Underwood's country chops were honed on the show. For Lambert, he was "Glambert" from the start.
"I think there's a misconception-people think that 'Idol' is like a Svengali puppeteer," Lambert says. "I think that may be the perception because certain people that have gone through the system didn't have a strong idea of what they wanted to do visually. I think the minute you do, they respond to that. And I've been very verbal and opinionated about what I want to create, and they've been nothing but supportive of that."
When Lambert moved to Los Angeles from San Diego eight years ago and began working in theater and as a session singer, he quickly learned that business acumen was just as important as musical talent. At 27, he's in the upper age range of "Idol" contestants-the cutoff for the show is 28-and the simple fact of his added life experience could serve him well as he transitions away from the spotlight that is built into the show.
"I do consider myself part artist, part businessperson," Lambert says. "I find marketing interesting, I find publicity interesting. I find the whole process interesting. I think there's some artists that are really focused on the music and the artistry, but I also think being a showman and being an entertainer is more than just being a musician. It's everything-it's something to look at and to listen to."
The songs on "For Your Entertainment" rely heavily on dance beats, but there are a number of ballads for contrast. "When I was picking my singles, I thought maybe I should do more of a rock thing because that's what people expect. But if I did what people expected of me, I don't think I would have gotten through 'Idol' the way I did," Lambert says. "It's part of my shtick as an artist to keep surprising people."
One defining characteristic is the A-list writing and production credit throughout the album: "Soaked," which Lambert says is about a one-night stand, was written by Muse's Matthew Bellamy and produced by Rob Cavallo, who worked on four tracks on the album; "Strut" was written by Lambert, "Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi and Greg Wells, who also produced; Ryan Tedder wrote and produced "Sleepwalker" alongside co-writers Aimee Mayo and Chris Lindsey.
"If an artist has the skills and ambition to write songs, then we will actively encourage and pursue this, often by pairing our artists with the world's very best songwriters, allowing them to learn and develop their writing skills," 19 Entertainment founder/CEO Simon Fuller says.
The announcement of the pairing of Lambert and Lady Gaga on the track "Fever" was fodder for gossip blogs, but Gaga doesn't actually perform on the track, Lambert says, explaining, "She was on the other side of the glass just egging me on."
The title track-which was produced by Dr. Luke, who co-wrote it with Claude Kelly-is now being worked to top 40 and hot AC radio. "I wanted to release something that would be played in a club, that would make you dance on New Year's," Lambert says.
He means that literally-"Dick Clark's Rockin' New Year's Eve With Ryan Seacrest" is one of the TV appearances lined up for Lambert in the coming months; the campaign starts Nov. 22 with his show-closing performance at the American Music Awards. Besides the typical rounds of morning and late-night talk shows, Lambert will be interviewed as one of the "Most Fascinating People" of 2009. "Adam is so telegenic. It's going to be a visual launch," Corson says.
A video for "For Your Entertainment" is forthcoming. It's directed by Ray Kay, who did the video for Lady Gaga's "Poker Face."
The album is available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon and was streamed on MySpace the week of Nov. 16. Lambert's Web site, AdamOfficial.com, is offering direct-to-consumer deluxe sets, including one for $24 that contains a 16-page picture book and two bonus tracks. One of them, "Whataya Want From Me" (written by Pink, Max Martin and Johan Shellbeck), will likely be the next single.
Internationally, Corson says the label intends to break Lambert first in the United Kingdom and Japan. For his part, Lambert wants to tour in 2010-and tour big. "I want dancers, I want costumes, I want video screens," he says. "I want to put on a show that's really theatrical and fun and grand."
'IDOL' GIVES BACK
All of this is the end result of a heady year for Lambert. At this time in 2008, he was waiting for the Hollywood elimination rounds of "Idol" to start. In TV time, it takes six months for "Idol" to crown a winner, but the production process runs year-round.
Despite the artifice of the show, it does drop-kick contestants into the media spotlight-a valuable lesson for any pop star. "They put you through it to see if you can hang," Lambert says.
The 2009 season of "Idol" attracted an average of 25.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen, the lowest average in several years; but it's still the most-watched show on TV, as it has been since 2004. The finale where Allen was proclaimed the winner over Lambert was watched by 28.8 million viewers-10 million more than the 2009 Grammy Awards.
"The finale of 'Idol' was pretty epic," Lambert says. "I got up there and was singing with Queen and Kiss-I got to put on a costume. I really feel the finale summed up what I'm trying to do, and what I'm going to do. I think that being onstage with legendary people like that reminds you of what showmanship is."
Weeks after the "Idol" season wrapped, the top 10 contestants embark on the Idols Live tour-a valedictory sprint of 52 cities in three months that grossed $30 million this year, according to Billboard Boxscore.
While group numbers are a standard part of the show, each high-finishing "Idol" contestant gets his or her chance to shine in a solo. Lambert did a medley of David Bowie's "Life on Mars?," "Fame" and "Let's Dance." He saw it as a chance to stage-test the sound he had in mind for his debut. "I always wanted to do Bowie songs, and I never did them on 'Idol' because it wasn't ever the right fit," he says. "We did a different, slightly modern production, which is basically what I'm doing on my album."
And much like the TV show, the "Idol" tour puts its participants through the wringer. "I've done theater for years and I've sung for a long time, but I've never done a solo set in concert night after night while traveling," Lambert says. "It was a good way to learn about how to take care of yourself and how to pace yourself while on the road."
With the fame comes accompanying challenges; Lambert has become a favorite subject of the tabloids and paparazzi. "Yeah, it's weird," he says. "You know, it's like, 'Hi, I'm just walking to my car-why do you care?' "
It's very likely that they care because of the wink-wink, nudge-nudge game that was played in the media about Lambert's sexuality during his "Idol" tenure. Lambert demurred on the questions about whether he was gay until the Rolling Stone article; since then he's unwittingly become Adam Lambert, Icon for Gay Youth. It's not a mantle he shoulders easily.
"I don't want to be a spokesperson for anybody, no matter who they are," he says. "I'm not following this career path to be a role model or to be a poster child for anything except for music. If there's an indirect impact that my presence has on certain issue, then I think that's a good thing."
It's a mature point of view to take as Lambert's private life becomes inextricably linked to his public persona. It's an issue that will get raised again and again-as he walked the red carpet for "2012," for example, he was asked if he brought a date. His laughing response? "My date is my jacket, actually."
A few days after the premiere, Lambert is sitting in Fuller's office, swiveling back and forth in a white office chair as he prepares for another long day of media interviews. The movie, as it turned out, was a blast, and "Time for Miracles" was warmly received. "People stayed and listened," he says, honestly happy. Of course they did. That's entertainment.
