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.

    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.”

    He can pull off pretty much anything lmao:

  • ianaleah

    Beautyiful looking & beautiful because he has guts, is honest, charming, articulate,witty, intelligent. He’s sweet , he’s sexy, poised,, confident, talente, stylish. Adam has rocked my world and I’m a straight gal. His energy is good, he’s a positive thinker with great attitude. I admire, respect and am infatuated with him. He is intriguing and interesting and exciting. Beautiful.

  • Slash

    @circle jerk: No, smarta$$. By circle, he is talking about The Zodiac Show where he performed for years with his friends like Carmit Bachar (PCD), Alisan Porter, Scarlett Cherry…The Citizen Vein, Burning Man, the underground LA scene with so many colorful, alternative expressive creative up and coming artists, fashionistas, performers. His circle of friends. His life has never been boring. I’d trade his for mine is a milli sec.

  • um

    Just Jared you should have printed the rest of the interview.

  • Jen

    Wow, looks like one homophobic prick spammed the comments on page 1 lol I don’t understand losers like that.

    Adam is so inspiring, just being who he is. You gotta love that! Especially when such an amazing person comes with an equally amazing voice!


    “These Beautiful People aren’t your ordinary people’s beauties. The folks we brought together in this issue are a purposefully diverse, eclectic and slightly off-kilter batch — some of whom you’ll probably recognize, many of whom you probably won’t. These are the people we’re obsessed with right now. We think you should be, too.”

  • christine

    Now that I think of it… Ricky Martin & Adam do sort of seem similar… they may be from two diff music worlds, but they do seem alike in some ways.
    Maybe they should get together… soulmates.

  • more RARES lol.
  • Oh honey, no.

    @christine: Hahaha, except they’re nothing alike lol? Ricky Martin has a partner (who funnily enough, looks a lot like Rickey whaaaaat??), and Adam’s type is elfin creative, alternative types, he HATES tanned muscly men, that look.

    His longtime friend Josh is a good example of his type:

  • Oh honey, no.
  • Oh honey, no.
  • Oh honey, no
  • TheNameIsManda

    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?

  • goldfrapp

    @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

    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!
    okay, and his hair is just the BEST!


    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.”

  • LOL

    @goldfrapp: You forgot the Tokio Hotel fans – or fan, and the Claikens. Where do they even come from.

  • Mari

    He is indeed beautiful.

  • oh, honey, no

    @christine: That first pic was meant to be Josh:

    lmao. Not TJ, oops..

  • Ben

    @LOL: The TH and CA fans are so f-n insane. During the MTV Poll they were there for f-n hours voting against and thumbing down comments, what do you even get out of that?!

  • did someone say….

    Adam is THE most beautiful human being inside and out!!! In my 55 years I have never been a fan girl, until Adam. Adam represents a turning point in my life to which I will be forever grateful. 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!

  • snowmen

    I haaaaate that shot! But I’ve never liked that photographer’s work anyway.
    But I love Adam! :) He’s such a doll —
    and MAAAAAD talented, well happy for his success. I hope it continues, he’s fab <3

  • Jermaine

    Lol. I don’t get anyone who can bash someone who has friends and fans in Queen, Slash, Zeppelin, Spielberg, Tyler, Burton, Paul McCartney, T&G, Marshall, Madonna, Rivers Cuomo, LPerry, Muse, Gaga etcccccc. I srsly don’t lmfao. Maybe if you had your own icons wanting to hang out and work with you like that, you’d be in a good place to judge but you don’t lol. 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. Brush it off NEXT, keep it up Lambo lol.

  • heck no


    Ricky Martin has waited all this time to come out. Adam was brave to do so right at the beginning of his career. They are not similar at all.

  • Nancy

    Adam is extremely handsome,intelligent and has crazy talent!!! His album is amazing, with so many terrific songs that it is hard to pick a favorite!!! Definitely agree that he is beautiful inside & out!!!!

  • Taryn

    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.

  • ksh

    love adam! such a talented and handsome man

  • Katherine

    WHO is this, make it go away.

  • joker

    @Katherine: you go away, you will never be missed

  • Adora

    I dont think American Idol will ever bring out anyone as talented, creative and great as him.

  • Carla

    Gotta love him. He’s gorgeous and super talented :)

  • y

    @Carla: And LOVELY, and hilarious when he’s in a funny mood. :)

  • Beautiful Soul

    I got to know Adam simply because of his music. HIs good look, fashion taste and nice personality are all extra desert.
    But I do have to say, he’s a truely beautiful person, not just because of his handsome face or fabulous clothes – the man radiates light from inside.

  • Katherine

    @GLORIA: So turning pint would be you hit menopause huh?
    Coming out from the beginning doesn’t make him a hero just a person who cares he still sucks I can’t stand his annoying voice.

  • WHAT

    ^ his voice is like angels having s.e.x, so f—–n beautiful. check out broken open, brigadoon and voodoo – unreeeeeaaaaaaaal
