Adam Lambert Opens Up About Fame in 'Notion': 'It's Not Freaking Me Out Anymore'

Adam Lambert looks hotter than ever on the cover of Notion magazine’s May 2015 music issue, out on newsstands on Friday (April 24)!

Here’s what the 33-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

Looking back on his experiences: “There were certain ways in which I triumphed and certain ways in which I stumbled a little bit. Unfortunately, people were watching while I was learning.”

On his new look:
“Someone said to me ‘oh you’re not wearing all that crazy sh-t, are you trying to tone it down?’ and I was like ‘no, I just got tired. Fu*k! It was a lot of work!’”

On approaching his third studio album: “The music industry is so crazy, competitive and focused, and after the Trespassing album I kind of had to stop and ask myself ‘why am I doing this? What do I want? Who am I? What am I about?’ and just re-examine at everything. I finally became more grounded about all of the fame stuff; it’s not freaking me out anymore.”

On The Original High: “[The album is] dance-y but bittersweet, and the lyrics are a little darker [than they have been, previously]. I’ve done the more bubblegum stuff, I’ve done the camp stuff, and now I want to encourage people to face their shit. I want to show them the part of me that’s not all polished or [still part of] the ‘pageant on TV’ thing – I want it to be real, you know?”

    Adam Lambert is without question theeeee most talented singer and performer there is and I’ve never met a more Shockingly Otherworldly Handsome Alpha Man as Adam. He exudes a mind boggling mixture of carnal SEXXX appeal and sweet lovable kindness at the same time it’s just Phenomenal. Adams live Voice saturates your soul with melodic beauty. I’m so amped up for what he has in store for us with The Original High.

    Of course it’s not freaking him out anymore, HE’S BARELY FAMOUS!!!

    Adam is an ASTOUNDING vocalist. His voice is beyond amazing. I’ve been a fan since the beginning of seeing him on AI. I don’t really consider Adam to be a celebrity or possessing much “fame.” BUT saying that, he should be at a higher level or fame for his talent. He’s lucky though that he doesn’t have paps following him 24/7.

    He is finding his way in the world, just like the rest of us. Fortunately for me, I don’t have to do it in the public eye. I give him credit for that because I don’t think I could do it.

    You poor thing xtincta.

  • imrah

    You must be very lonely Xtincta..there..there

  • adamluv1000

    I’m so happy he is feeling more comfortable with his fame. Those who think he isn’t famous should tell us what other AI contestant is a front man for a super famous band (Queen) in addition to his personal fame.
