Billboard polled 600,000 readers, who let it be known that the sexiest male musician out there is — get ready for it — Adam Lambert. The guy is on fire these days, what with being the sexiest singer du jour, plus having recently made it to the number one spot on the Billboard chart when his new album “Tresspassing” sold 77,000 copies in its first week (beating out Adele, no less). blogs.forward.com/the-shmooze/157798/adam-lambert-tops-sexiest-men-in-pop-list/#ixzz1xqxH80u0
Over this guy:
^^^WHO CAN BLAME THEM?!! JUST LOOK AT HIM!!!^^^ :D :D :D
Pushing a single to US radio.....$1 million Making a video.........$250 thousand Number 1 album, fronting Queen, sexiest man in music......priceless!
also, I know it helps to have a low bar, but NCOE has been creeping up on Canadian iTunes every day....now at 102, and the negative bullets have started to reverse. Better than going the other direction!
Adam talks to us about Queen, American Idol, being a role model and his school days
We have to admit it, we were all a little starstruck when Adam Lambert took over our Twitter account and popped into the 4music.com offices for a chat.
The raven-haired singer with the piercing blue eyes, is just as striking in the flesh as he is in his press pictures. We know first hand.
After we'd picked ourselves up off the floor, we got down to the business in hand and asked him a few questions.
He chats to us about how "surreal" it is to front the legendary group Queen and how he hopes that "Freddie (Mercury) would have thought that he was fabulous".

We discover why he initially auditioned for American Idol and says his age and experience helped him strive to become the winner.
Adam talks about being an "outsider" at school and how it felt to dread lunch as he'd be by himself. But he also reveals how "lucky" he feels to be a role model now and how this means he can inspire people to be positive and go for their dreams.
The interview continues as Adam answers our questions articulately and from the heart. He was a pleasure to meet and we hope to see him back at the 4music.com hub sometime soon. Watch the interview in full above.
Pop in for a cuppa and a chat anytime you want Adam...
