Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know what Adam said to me in regards to his not coming out to meet the fans before the show.... as well as an additional message from Adam!

I said "Adam, your fans want to know why you don't come out in the afternoon."

He answered "I come out after the show."

I asked "But why don't you come out before?"

And he said "Because it's hot. I'm tired. I have to sing 5 songs and want to rest my voice -- those songs are HIGH!" (and he kind of grabbed at his throat when he said that. It was kind of funny). Then he said "Tell them to come out after to meet me. I'd love to meet them after."

I thanked him and started to walk away, but then he stopped me and said "Could you tell them something else for me? Could you tell them that I'm going to start a charity or something soon, and that I would rather they don't spend their money buying things for me that I don't need... and I don't really have much space to put it on a bus anyway, ya know?" He then said that if the fans draw him a picture or write a poem, he thinks that is cool, but that he thinks their money should go to a better cause

So there you have it! If you want to meet Adam, go after because he will not come out before the show, and donate to a charity!

Thank you Adam for always being honest. I love that you know what you need to do to take care of yourself. Your voice is a rare instrument, and I love that you respect it, and us, enough to take care of it. We do recognize the high notes, and how much energy you give to every performance.

I appreciate that all afternoon you have formal meet and greets, and press. Then you sing the most difficult, and energetic performance of the 10. And then you go to yet another after party. I'm just amazed you can come out at all. We all know how much you love your fans and you are trying to give us your all. Gee, then all the recording in between.

Do what you need to do. The East Coasters are counting on it!!! Ha!

I like that he was honest, but I don't understand why you asked him, when you were already in the privileged postion of meeting him.

I would have thought it was obvious why he doesn't make himself public property all the time and I don't really like that he was put on the spot like that. Sorry.

Because everybody had been asking why he doesn't come out, and hoping that he was going to start coming out early as the tour went on. There were speculations that it was because of press, because he had to do his makeup, even because of security issues! It was clear that is was NOT obvious as to why Adam didn't come out. I just wanted to be able to set the record straight, and save some Glamberts an afternoon of waiting in the hot sun for something that was never going to happen (over the past few days, I have seen MANY disappointed people do this). so I asked him and he told me to let the fans know that he will come out after the show, so to come then and not to expect him before original.gif


For the record, he didn't seem uncomfortable answering the question one little bit, and repeated that I should tell the fans more than once.

well, I believe the OP. Adam said once before that he was planning to set up a charity and preferred for fans to donate to that rather than give him gifts.

thanks for passing along his message. flowers.gif

I have some of it on video if you really want me to post it...

You're right, Adam is not my favorite. That's why I didn't mind using my one chance to meet him to ask him that question.

YES, he said he appreciates the gifts, but thinks the money could be put to better use! That is what he said. Sorry if that bothers you blarg.gif

Adam has said in interviews that he'd rather people donate to charity. I definitely think this poster is telling the truth.

So there you have it! If you want to meet Adam, go after because he will not come out before the show, and donate to a charity!



It may sound weird but I alreay tweeted to Adam about this.

He has to do 50 shows for about two months and that's crazy

Comparing to other contestants, he puts a lot of energy on the show, and the most of songs he has to sing is crazily high notes songs/.

That's gonna a lot of work for him


So I was really really worried at first because no matter how powerful person he might be, I knew he would have some problems handling that.

I used to sing so I know how hard it is to have those big shows in a row like 50 times.



So at first I just tweeted Adam that he should've not consist of those crazy songs everywhere and he should've thought about all situations that he has to record an album at the same time.

I know both of them are really important for him but I care him more I care his throat more.



Well, and moving by bus thing, AW! that's the worst part for the SINGERS

The atmosphere in the bus is really horrible, I normally don't get cold a lot but when I had really important audition about several yrs ago, I had a horrible cold while I was sleeping in the bus.



Anyways, I totally understand no matter what, and He is very sensitive one I know, (he doesn't look like that though)

Now I have no choice but to pray for him, srsly I don't care whether this tour ends right now I do think he needs some rest for him and for his throat . For the singers taking a rest is the always best part, he needs enough sleep and rest. Well, the things he has to do right now is pretty crazy, He ALSO HAS TO MAKE RECORDS AT THE SAME TIME DANG. I want to suggest him to change some songs from wild things to a bit soft ones but that's his choice.





Well, he shouldn't use his voice THAT MUCH.


I hope he could get through this till the end AMEN

Thanks for posting what he told you. I wish people would leave him alone about it now but somehow I doubt that.

I really hope Adam nominates a charity soon or sets up a foundation. I would be first in line to donate. I love that he is so considerate like that wub.gif wub.gif

I'd rather not see the video. it's the kind of thing that could get twisted into Adam being a diva~ you know? I think he's totally justified but of course the h8ers will find a way to use his answer against him.

Yeah, he seems to be REALLY good at meeting the fans after the show! I am actually impressed at how well he seems to handle the crowd yes.gif

I agree, I probably shouldn't post it. Only, watching it back, the only part my sister videod (is that a word? tongue.gif) is the part about the charity... eh, I still probably should just leave it.

Good for him! I respect Adam for taking good care of himself...that's an amazing thing he's doing. And good for him for speaking the truth as only Adam can!

This is a grueling tour schedule that they are booked on and there's no way they get any down time to rest and recuperate until the tour is over in mid-September. My son is in the industry and he's been on tour many times....he says the same thing. He goes nowhere but from his hotel room to the theatre on show days. Absolutely Adam needs to concentrate on making sure he's healthy and well-rested so he doesn't get sick and miss a show.

He really doesn't owe it to us to come out and meet and greet us...it's a privilege when he does and a huge "awwwww" when he can't.

Yeah, I really wasn't trying to say "Lambert is a jerk!" or anything. I completely understand why he doesn't come out, and he has every right not to. I was just trying to save some people the trouble of waiting around all day in the hot sun when he wouldn't come out, and Adam told me to make sure you guys knew to come out after if you want to meet him.

Sorry again if I upset anyone, though...

I believe you and don't think you were painting Adam as a jerk. I quite like how blunt he is about it, actually, since he could have made up an excuse. Actually, some people will still see it as an excuse (not implying you), but honestly, not Idols have the same demands on them, including past winners and fan favorites, and Adam's a lot more savvy on how to pace himself/save his voice.

I think that question was a little blunt and not sure you should have found it your question to ask. I mean, shouldn't a Lambert fan who was conversing with him ask this question instead? It sounds like you were hugging Kris and Matt and then approached Adam only to ask him a question that deals with him and his fans, even though you aren't one. But whatever, what's done is done.
