Life on the Front Stage:
Adam is no stranger to the stage, he has been a public performer since he was a young boy. Performing as a stage actor, he has performed in many onstage musicals and toured before he became famous as a recording artist. All the plays and musicals, just added as training for a life in music. This is proof, that Adam Lambert is not a fly by night singing contest finalist. (Sarcastic pun intended).
During American Idol an apparent smear campaign was conducted against him, with some publishing photos of Lambert and another male being intimate. Adam admitted his sexual orientation and stated he was not ashamed nor, did he have anything to hide. Adam handled the situation in a very diplomatic way, and continued the season, and it did not effect his ratings as a singer and performer on American Idol.
Quest for Platinum:
Currently Adam Lambert is recording his second album in the studio, which is rumored to be a great album to come. With his vocal style and panache this is bound to be a much anticipated follow up album.
Adam Lambert is the male version of Lady Gaga all the elements are there, from vocals and style to marketing and performing.
Will Adam Lambert's debut album "For Your Entertainment" reach Platinum sales status before he releases his next album? We hope it does, he is an artist that deserves to cross the finish line.
Adam Lambert's album sales to date are approximately over 800,000 in the US, another 200,000 units need to be sold to have the RIAA certification of Platinum.
