Adam Lambert’s fans are “dedicated”

“Are you a huge fan of “Adam Lambert” who likes to blog? We’ve got a job for you…”

HollywoodNews.com: Though Adam Lambert may have occupied just a small niche in the world of pop music, the singer says that his fans are some of the most passionate fans you could find anywhere.

Lambert believes his fan base has expanded, not through some huge promotional campaign, but by word of mouth, Digital Spy reports.

“Well, I mean, the venues are not huge. They’re modest. But I think there’s definitely something going on with the internet and I think there’s a lot of word of mouth surrounding my project and that’s really exciting for me.” The singer told X Magazine. Lambert admits that it seems harder in the states because people aren’t as understanding of sexuality.

“I don’t know exactly how it works in the UK music scene but in the States it is a little tough because people… some people, the minute they hear gay, their mind becomes closed and they don’t want to hear your music.” Lambert said.

    You are so right about people in the states being closed minded. All they have to hear is the word gay. I even had a radio announcer ask me why I liked him because he was gay, I should be prejudice against him. People have to learn to except people for who they are, not by what they are labeled. Adam is a great singer with a personality and charm to go with it. Once you go to one of his concerts, you are hooked forever and can’t get enough of him. At least the other countries are open minded and see and hear the person. You are right, his fans will not walk away from him. Please don’t give up on us because of the close minded persons. We love you Adam!!!!!!

    I love the United States, don’t get me wrong, but homophobia is really, really stupid. Adam Lambert is an incredibly talented artist. If you’re not listening to his voice just because of his sexuality, I feel very sorry for your life.

    It did shock me at first to learn he was gay but that didn’t last long.Now I think of him as a great singer and person and that is the only thing that matters.Now I have to add Grammy nominated singer. zippitydoda

    I think what he says is true and so unfortunate. Adam Lambert has mad talent and people who won’t even give him a real chance are missing out. He has a remarkable voice and is super charismatic and truly a great performer.

    There’s probably more homophobia in the US, true, but let’s remember that virtually all of Adam’s tour dates in the US were SOLD OUT!! Adam has so many fans who absolutely adore him and will support him all the way.

    I have always felt the saying “Judge not least ye be judged” …….so I really try to stick to that saying…..Love Adam and he is the most fantastic entertainer that we have had since Elvis…….I loved your glam nation tour….I seen 9 here in the U. S. and it was great…..

    I cannot for the life of me understand the connection between being a PHENomenal ENTERtainer & being ‘gay’ have to do with one another! Sexual orientation doesn’t have a thing to do with how well an artist can SING or ENTERtain! It is the VOICE .. CHARisma .. STAGE Presence … RAPPort with the audience & how they feel when the show is over! Did they enjoy themselves … was it worth the money they spent … would they go to see him again … that’s what counts … not this ‘gay’ BS!! Grow Up America!!

    Adam is so right about the closed minds. When I tell some people I like Adam Lambert they look at me and say “you know he’s gay right”? Almost in the same way someone would say “you know he spent 10 years in jail for drug trafficing? I now look right back and say “what is your point”? People get all flustered. I’m in my senior year of high school and a lot of them need to grow up. My friends like Adam and if you don’t like him then we tell people to go foutre themselves. Ha ha ha …..I picked that up from Adam’s interview in France. I noticed though people in the last few months are acting differently toward him. Kind of like they are getting used to him and warming up to him.

    It is a sad commentary to me that Fever cannot be released as a single in the US, but was released in Malaysia, where being homosexual is against the law. We may not have laws on the books in the US, but in many ways we are far worse bigots because we actually discriminate against those who are different and pretend it’s about “god”.

    I’m one of those fans. I think I have watched at least one video from each of the Glamnation tour concerts. Every performance is amazing and a bit different…just so entertaining. It really is fun to be an Adam Lambert Fan. Converastions on the fan sites are intense and really make you think of more than just the concert. It is about feeling and how you view different people and understanding that we are all different. And for me it is about discovering that in other people as well.
    Also… the conversations are not about anyone being gay most of the time. I have found the music industry interesting and have been enjoying music I would never have given a first listen to if it wasn’t for the Adam lambert fans. One blog leads you to another, to another and it has become entertainment for times when I just want to sit and realax with my computer.

    The right-wing “Christians” are some of the least tolerant people in the world. We have absolutely no right to slam other countries for their prejudice and bias when the United States of America is quilty of profound discimination. Even our Congress sustains the DADT policy depriving our men and women of their personal rights as they fight and die for their country. I’m embarrassed for this country and ashamed at the hate filled comments that are addressed at Adam Lambert. He is a beautiful spirit with a supernatural talent.

    Adam is so talented. I’ve seen him Live at GNT and there is no denying he is one fabulous singer. People who have closed minds are missing out on his talent. I am so happy I saw him this summer. I was actually not expecting to be STUNNED by him in person, but I was swept away in all honesty. I’ve seen a lot of concerts but GNT was amazing and Adam gives 500% during his show. I don’t know how or where he gets that energy but you can feel it.

    Just this evening I listened to a weekly blog radio conversation between Angelina Kalahari, a soprano who entertained the queen of England, and Juneau & Xena, the women who wrote the book On The Meaning of Adam Lambert. They also have a blog site of the same name. The topic was his new EP Acoustic For Your Entertainment. His formal training in opera was discussed and how he used his whole body when he breathes. Angelina explained how the body reacts to this technique and what we see on stage because of it. This was a real eye-opener for me….I really learned something. I would suggest that you go to their site and listen to this weeks radio blog. You’ll be glad that you did. Oh, I love Adam unconditionally.

    Ahhhhh, yes … Those ‘open-minded mavericks,’ the Americans! (What a joke!) I’ve lived in three other countries, and -each time I’ve returned- I feel as if I’ve gone BACK in time, as far as some issues are concerned … Certainly the issue of homosexuality is among those. I think much of the problem is how we deal with sexuality in this country ~ Whispers and giggles suround all things sexual, from the time we’re children … Meanwhile, in other countries, sexuality (as well as the naked body) is seen as a more natural thing, and is, therefore, not such a big deal … Of course, we Americans can thank our Puritannical roots, and what the know-it-alls here are so SURE how God feels about homosexuality. Organized religion has turned out to be one of the most divisive, destructive concepts ever. At least Adam has discovered the more “sane” world outside this one, isolated country …

    I think Adam and most of you are wrong. The US is not as backward as Adam believes. Adam would have won American Idol if those creeps down in Arkansas did not vote thousands of times each with the help of AT&T. I worked for AT&T for over 20 years and I know how easily the votes could have been scammed. Blocking Adam’s votes and power texting could easily produce the 38 million votes that changed the outcome. America favored Adam. Is there any data that would convince anyone to believe that Kris really deserved to win? He never had the fans or the talent to win on his own. He is the worst singer who ever won even though Lee sold less records. Kris was riding Adam’s coattails as his friend or Kris would have sold the least albums. It is bad PR that allows people to think that mainstream America will not embrace the most talented singer of this generation. This talented entertainer is a national treasure and we should start treating him like one.

    Roger, you are right! Adam is a national treasure. Unfortunately he’s STILL an unappreciated -at his real value –treasure. On the other hand, people from other continents respect and appreciate ADAM more even though he did not work that hard for them.
    Homophobia is an american disease that can not be cured that fast because it requires education, an open mind and an open spirit.
    I wish ADAM all the best luck in this world.

    @Millie, Here, Here. Such a good post and so true!!! In fact, every single post is so on point though a sad commentary on America’s values!!! Your posts give me hope That a “Change Is Going To Come to America.”

    This is a singer to treasure. i think the word-of-mouth extends across the sea.

  • December 10, 2010 | Permalink |

    I usually don’t commet on these articles, but couldn’t resist this one. First , Adam is the most amazing singer I have ever experienced in my lifetime. Live or on TV , he is totally mesmerizing. As a person, he is kind, humble and wishes only the best for other artists.
    Secondly, I have had a DJ tell me not to call again and for me to tell my fanclub the samething. This man knew nothing about me and this is what I got. This is only one reason why we are so protective of him. I feel that I have been so blessed to have seen this amazing talent in my lifetime. Go Adam!!!!!!!!!!

  • December 11, 2010 | Permalink |

    Kerry/Roger: So are you saying that if Adam had won American Idol, the entire U.S. population would have embraced him as a national treasure, nobody would have had any problems with the fact that he’s gay, and no complaints would have been filed to the FCC after his AMA performance last fall? You honestly think that the general U.S. population care that friggin’ much about who wins a silly reality/talent show, so they would completely ignore Adam’s talent simply because he didn’t win? Are you aware that there are many people who NEVER even watch American Idol? I’m serious, it’s true! And, there are also people who watch American Idol but never vote! Really! There are also many people who love to watch American Idol and pick their favorite every year, but never follow or pay any attention to their favorite after the season ends (regardless of whether their favorite wins or not)! Just thought you should know that! Anyway, there are plenty of potential Adam fans among the fans of other artists, (yes, even among the fans of Kris Allen, believe it or not), but when you keep badmouthing Kris they’re just going to get turned off and refuse to give Adam a chance. So your hate campaign against Kris is not helping Adam, it’s hurting him. Way to go.

    I for one are sick of defending adam to my family and friends. They all say he’s too OTT but I know it’s because he’s gay that they don’t embrace him. I ever never felt this way about any artist and learned so much about myself from being an adam fan. His fans are truly remarkable and I am so proud to be part of this journey with this remarkable talent. IMO, it’s thier loss if they don’t get him and yes, America is sooo closed minded. It’s pathetic!

    Adam Lambert has the rest of the world behind him! He don’t need closed minded Americans to be a Super star.. He Already is one!!!

  • December 11, 2010 | Permalink |

    I agree with Adam. As part of his fan base from the beginning, I’ve seen an expansion since he began touring. It seems he won many people over during that time. I’ve run into a few, not just at concerts but just in random places. They seem so shocked. “Wow, that guy is talented!” Naw, really? I haven’t been aware of that for the last two years.

    And, of course, there really can’t be much reasoned and supportable debate about American attitudes toward gays. Our collective progression is underwhelming. Adam’s broken some barriers, though. Painfully and possibly to his detriment, it’s true, but I admire his sheer brass. Others may detest him for the shock he’s inspired, but luckily for those of us who believe that knuckles were not meant to be dragged upon the ground, they can’t turn back time and unmake Adam Lambert.

  • December 11, 2010 | Permalink |

    I am one of Adam’s older fans and all my friends think I am insane! I haven’t met one single person who is a fan besides at the concerts, twitter, or his fansite. I have even tried among the younger crowd who work for me and they aren’t fans either. Think if all these untapped people were fans what an amazing career he would have. I send his songs out and get “he sings nice” replies but no interest. I must see something they don’t see so am so thankful for his internet fans. For a while, I thought I was his only fan!

    @Roger ~ I agree with you totally that Adam is a “national treasure” … and I WISH I could agree with your optimistic view that homophobia has nothing to do with the fact that Adam didn’t win AI, and is not as “big” here as we think he should be. As I mentioned, I have international life experience to support my point of view to the contrary … Whether or not the “Arkansas situation” was any part of the reason for Adam’s not winning, I put that aside long ago (and truly feel Adam’s ‘runner-up’ status has benefitted him as a win never could have), and wish others would stop bringing Kris up, especially to discredit him. He’s a seemingly nice guy with good musical and voice skills (and, isn’t Adam’s more impressive post-Idol success vindication enough?) … I do, however, applaud YOUR great taste in music! Let’s just enjoy Adam for his incredible attributes, and refrain from bringing others down, while doing that.

  • December 11, 2010 | Permalink |

    To quote ADAM & Kris (and then I’ll retire this subject) … there was no competition ‘between’ them but a competition within themselves to do their best to WIN! ADAM has done just that … IMO … ADAM is a WINNER. There’s nothing wrong with going on a TV show to introduce yourself to MILLIONS of people & show them how TALENTED you are & WHY you should be the winner. Where else can you get that kind of exposure/publicity for nothing? ADAM & Kris both went on the show with one thought in mind … to stay on for as long as the VOTERS would allow them to. As for the voters … when have they gotten anything right in the past DECADE … and NOT just on a reality show?!? … JMO

    Just wanted to note that ADAM LAMBERT has been VOTED Entertainer of the Year 2010 on a Flecking Records poll in the UK besting Lady GaGa … McFly .. Ke$sha .. Katty Perry .. Pink … just to name a few of the other artists. Guess that means the PEOPLE have spoken in spite of the efforts of the radio DJs & TPTB that are trying to IGNORE ADAM!! Good for you UK fans!! GO ADAM!!
