Entertainment behind the scenes
Adam Lambert — still out to shock
Remember “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert?
Last season, his penchant for flashy costumes and eye makeup on the No. 1-rated TV talent show earned him the nickname “Glambert”. After the show ended, he disclosed publicly that he was gay. You can read about it here and here.
The cover of his forthcoming debut album “For Your Entertainment” is getting people talking about Lambert all over again, six months after he lost the “Idol” title to Kris Allen.
In a Twitter entry, the glam rocker called the album cover “deliberately campy” and said it was designed to be “ridiculous”.
“Thank you to those who appreciate and understand that the album cover is deliberately campy. It’s an homage to the past. It IS ridiculous,” Lambert wrote.
“For those that don’t get it: oh well… Glad to have gotten your attention,” he continued. “Androgyny. Rock n Roll.”
Lambert recently told Entertainment Weekly about his goals for the album, saying: “I wanna rock; I want people to dance, I want people to cry, I want people to smile and laugh. And I wanna play dress-up!”
Kris Allen releases his own debut album a week ahead of Lambert on Nov 17, called simply “Kris Allen”. Whose album will you be buying?
