Adam Lambert on Jay Leno – Video

Adam Lambert Jay Leno 01-2009-12-21.jpg

Adam Lambert guests on the Jay Leno Show.

Jay interviewed him about his being controversial and he sang “Whataya Want From Me”.

Adam said that he wanted to clarify two things:

1. He has not started a make up line
2. He is in good terms with his father

I don’t know why he mentioned the make up line. Maybe someone’s trying to sell things in his name? (Remember those glasses in the name of Danny Gokey which we all fell for?) But honestly, make up line, at least the guyliner line, which should be easy to set up, is a good idea.

Why are all the photos of Adam Lambert in the different stories as close and blown up as humanly possible but they're not this way for say, Kris Allen?

I think Adam saga will be over if he only focus on his make up and outfit. He seems nice and smart with enormous talent. I prefer him to sing from his heart not trying to be Lady Ga Ga.

Adam and Jay interacted so well together! What I loved most about this interview was that Jay didn't focus on either his sexuality or the AMA's. He asked Adam some great questions, and it brought out Adam's personality really well. Jay gave him the perfect opportunity to sell out ABC, but he chose the high road and owned up to his actions anyway. VERY smart and classy of him. This interview was perfect.

I loved the interview. Adam is always so relaxed and just has a really outgoing personality. He seems down to earth and so genuine. Adam also sounded so good singing WDYWFM his voice was in perfect pit. With Adams charm good & sexy looks, plus his exceptionally huge singing talent he'll make it far and many good things will happen for him!

Thanks for posting the video clips Rickey!

The title of this blog sounds like a Jeopardy answer - "what title do you NEVER want to see as a porn video" :D

Further evidence that FOX/AI/19Evil is hell bent on trying to save face and pump more payolaand promo into their planted fail whale (from MJs):

<i> According to an item on AdamOfficial, Adam Lambert’s “For Your Entertainment” will be used by Fox to promote their January lineup. So watch for that!</i>

So FOX's new line up will be full of rough gay sex? YAY!!!!

JEALOUSY REARS IT'S UGLY HEAD ONCE AGAIN IN THE FORM OF OPPIE and KEITH! Strange how obsessed you two are with Adam. That speaks volumes about the two of you. In other words...we can see through you!

Adam reminds me "Have a gay and merry Christmas".

Whew - is all I can say about Adam...he is just lovable. I am glad he has his family to keep him grounded, plus he is GROWN & SEXY!!!

I thought the camera was totally off during his performance, more than once, it was like they didn't know where to shoot, "just in case" - but they need not worry about Adam - he's learned his lesson!!!

This is the first interview I've watched of him. I can see why he gets a lot of bookings like this because he is a great interview.

Loved watching Adam on Leno last night! Awesome interview and performance. My question? When will Adam start singing other songs on his album? I realize he's laying low on the FYE song but there are plenty more that need exposure. JMHO

I never liked Leno until now. I was a Letterman fan but Leno has been great to Adam! Smooth operator that Adam--love his interviews. Leno really deserves a lot of credit for showing that Adam is really just a guy who is like everyone else except that he's very talented. Great man hugs as well. Yes, it's ok for a straight man to hug a gay man, it won't kill ya!

It was so down home--the only thing that was missing was a cup of coffee and a doughnut! Loved it.

Great interview...great singing! Adam's sales totals are over 350,000 now, and up about 37% from last week. If he keeps this steady pace, and as his air play increases, he'll hit 500k in just a few weeks. Great job Adam!

Funny, Keith, but I bet we'd all puke if we looked at your picture. Why don't you post it so we can see how "handsome" you are????

you should really see a doctor since you've obviously developed an obsession in looking at "mAdam's" pics.

Adam nailed this interview. Really showed a different side of him, away from all the AMA drama. WWFM was also good. I like the different phrasing he used.

So glad Adam had a chance to speak. What a pleasure when an interviewer does the homework and keeps things fresh. Adam was warm, witty, gorgeous, and he killed the song. This blog post says it all:

I agree with all of the above. Adam is always so positive and happy. He never goes negative on anybody, and is such a joy to listen to, both in his interview and especially every time he sings. He has never looked so good as well.

That was a GREAT interview. The best I've seen since the 'controversy'. Its sort of nice to see him feeling comfortable and talkative. I had kind of lost faith in him for a while but this interview was very reassuring that he is still the Adam that I know and like and it was also good to hear the crowds' support. Yay!

can't say I am a huge Jay fan..though I think he is a nice guy...but it really appreciated that he didn't dwell on the controversy...hopefully people are starting to movie on now! good interview
