Adam Lambert: I'm The Same Adam I've Always Been

Adam Lambert is one of Paper magazine’s Beautiful People of 2010!

The 28-year-old entertainer told Paper that he often doesn’t feel like he’s being controversial. “I’m just the same Adam I’ve always been, and in the circles I run in, it’s not all that shocking,” he shared.

As for his favorite designers, Adam cited Gareth Pugh, “the late and great” Alexander McQueen, Galliano and Dolce & Gabbana.

FYI: Adam is wearing a jacket by Gucci and a shirt by Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers.

    Wow “Ugly Pic”..you are really angry, aren’t you? I can only imagine what you must look like. Why do people have to be so hateful? I would bet that they don’t know a thing about Adam so why do they bother posting about him? Jealous much? Adam was never a drag queen…he dressed up for a few occasions. He is so sweet, honest, hilarious, gorgeous and the most talented singer I’ve ever heard! I guess I’ll never get why people have to be so mean. Who cares if he’s gay…unless you’re wanting to sleep with him. That has nothing to do with his talent.

    Lily Says:

    I’ve met him when he was in Singapore and I gotta say that he is one of the nicest entertainer that I have ever met in my life. Yeah he has his flaws and all but I gotta say, overall as a person, he is beautiful inside and outside. Love him.

    Mosey Says:

    He is absolutely beautiful inside and out. I cannot believe that there are still people out there that have so much hate in their hearts. What has this man done to you? I am so proud to say I am a fan he brings so much joy to so many. A BIG THANKYOU TO ADAM FOR BEING ADAM.

    He’s awesome! Loooove his voice! Love his style, it fits him very well, and he’s very smart person (you can tell from all his interviews, especially the video ones).
    Beauty is a matter of perception, and I agree with papermag’s idea of beauty. It’s not just what you see, personality and intelligence are part of it too. Adam’s got those in spades. :)
    A++, papermag!

    Lem Says:

    @Love Him!!!: I basically agree – as I’ve blogged before and elsewhere – some will always be jealous or threatened by Lambert because deep down they know that Lambert can make the knees go weak of your girlfriend, your boyfriend, your BFF, your best bud next door, the person in front of you in line at the store, your little sis, your mother and maybe your older brother too. Okay, let the hateful comments begin…but way down deep inside you know I have a valid point!

    Light Says:

    Beautiful man, inside and out, and one of the most talented singer/entertainers to come along in decades. As for the mean haters, can’t you see how telling your comments are about yourselves..when you judge others it because you see that in yourselves….proven psychological fact people, so the last laugh as sad as it is, is oneyourselves.

    kms Says:

    SIT DOWN Says:

    The troll posting as “Adam”, lol, just lol. First, L O L at you using the words “drag queen” as a negative term, way to show your intelligence moron. I know many drag queens, Adam knows so many drag queens, they EXIST, they’re HUMAN, they’re colorful and beautiful and a lot happier than you are. They are PEOPLE. You can be sure they don’t spend their time online trashing people they’ve never even met. Btw RuPaul’s Drag Race is a hilarious show, you should watch it sometime – although it’d be past your bedtime am I right, TH fan? Lol. There are tons of photos of Adam and his friends with drag queens, kings, performers, everyone. Unlike you, he doesn’t judge a book by it’s cover, unlike you and people just like you, he will befriend you if you are a nice person, not for how you dress, not because of your orientation or skin tone or lifestyle. Unlike you and people like you, he is not ugly inside. His best friend is Jewish, his brother is Atheist (Twit.ter. com /negativeneil – follow him if you understand & appreciate hilarious snark and politics), his father again has his own views, his mother is Jewish, his other friend is very religious, his other friend is Muslim, his other is Christian, his other is African, his other is Asian, his other is white, his other is into Art, his other is into Music, his other is into Business…..we are all human. Adam, himself, is a total hippie at heart, spiritual and open minded and beautiful. He is a BEAUTIFUL person. He is such a free spirit and has a huge huge circle of friends, “You will gravitate towards Lambert in a crowd, whether or not you intend to. He has a specific energy, a specific vibe. Those who radiate charisma with positivity become undeniably magnetic.”

    When ex bigot Michael Sarver was asked who he looked up to he said, “Actually, the coolest person I’ve met is Adam Lambert, as far as teaching me the most. And it has nothing to do with music, eveything to do with character. And not seeing the difference before you see the person, seeing the person first. I have to say if I have grown the most from any certain individual it would have to be Adam Lambert. His heart and soul is amazing. And he always has something positive to say, no matter what we’re faced with, no matter what life throws at him. I can say I’m a changed man because of that guy, I am thankful for him.”

His circle of friends. His life has never been boring. I’d trade his for mine is a milli sec.

    God. I wish people would quit judging him just cause he is gay. I mean seriously. He’s talented and HOT! I really dont give a f*** about him being gay. He is a good singer. I mean who agrees with me?

  71. 71
    goldfrapp Says:

    @TheNameIsManda: He’s an AMAZING singer. And he’s hilarious and really nice, so the hate is really bad. Someone said the hate comes from phobes and some gay men. It’s what I’ve found 99% of the time, when you track their comments around the sites, they always have the same tone and the bitterness clicks. As for the gay men, it’s always either the old gay men that are not used to anyone younger than them being sexual. They’ve spent their entire life presenting themselves as publicly Asexual so they find it hard with the new generation. And there are also some younger ones who present themselves as neutral, I don’t think they understand their behaviour is as bad as the hphobes, as they are basically saying you can only be gay if you are a certain way. There is not one type of gay just like there is not one type of lesbian and straight. It’s actually very offensive but Adam doesn’t give a f—-k. Him and his band are having mad success all over the world, everywhere he’s gone so far there have been thousands of fans. And there is a reason he has so many legends as friends and fans. He’s gonna be huge, I don’t get that feeling about a lot of people but watch him.

    Kristina Says:

    omg! look at his gorgeous face!!!!! how can he be so gorgeous all the time?

    Adam sings beautifully. He can rock it out like any true rock star (QUEEN wants him; Slash is interested in working with him) and then sing a ballad that will entrap you with the emotions emitting from his voice! He can do amazing things with a song so that it’s always fresh and exciting.
    ….
    This glittery alien is never boring and he will always entertain!

    Adam Lambert speaking about Burning Man:

    “It’s an Art Festival that takes place in the desert, there’s music, it’s like a big party. Woodstock meets a big ol’ rave, meets the Louvre, how’s that lol? The pictures don’t do it justice at all, man it’s fascinating. It’s basically like a social experiment, a Utopian society for ONE week. And it’s mapped out, with over, I think it was 70 thousand, no it’s bigger than that, it’s huuuuge whatever it is, 1000s and 1000s of people. It becomes the 2nd largest city in Navada for one week, and then everybody leaves. And there’s NOTHING left. So it’s all camping, parties, costumes, people riding their bikes around, it’s the most free society, and…everybody there, is so positive, and just loving each other, it’s like something that doesnt really EXIST in real life, and that’s what makes it so beautiful. I went 3 years in a row, and it just changed my outlook on everything. I was like “You know what, it’s better to just be free and celebrate life, and to meet strangers and say hello. It’s like fantasy, it’s like a dream, on earth.”

I would love to meet and talk to Adam more than anyone. Have seen him up close and personal, but was unable to talk to him. Maybe during his tour this summer. For those of you who are backbiting, jealousy is an ugly thing. Adam has talent, beauty, humility etc….so why not take part in the joy he brings to so many all over the world!

I don’t get it, it shows you way up if anything. But phobes and catty gays aside, I’m realizing the trolls are fans of really bad artists like Clay and TH, if that’s the case, then lolllllll.

    Ricky Martin chose to hide and lie about who is is for years while he sang “She bangs”…
    Adam Lambert never lied about his sexuality, he’s been open and honest about it right from the start despite being ridiculed.
    His talent, convidence and courage make him a role model whether you like it or not.
