This thread is meant for all those fans who discovered Adam later in the game to post their stories. We oldies love to hear how you discovered Adam, what hooked you, your favorite performance/trait/outfit, etc.

Buckle up guys! We're in for a wild ride with Adam at the wheel!!!!

And I'm posting this as a welcome wagon gift....

I've been a glambert for 2 and half months now, so I do consider myself a newish fan. Prepare for a longish entry. I'm a total diehard fan is an understatement. laughing.gif

Early June I was bored and I was looking for something that was edgy and entertaining. So I went youtubing or youtube window shopping. I heard this name "Adam Lambert" somewhere but I didn't know where I heard it from. So I typed it in and found the FYE music video. I thought it was sexy but it was generic huh.gif so I didn't bother with it for another 2 weeks or so, but I did download the song. I listened to it casually and I thought wow, these lyrics are very frisky, but it had such a powerful and (dominatrix) vibe that I kept listening to it. I couldn't stop listening to it (that's pop music) and I got hooked to the song.

I then wikied Adam Lambert and I found out that he was gay. Which didn't detract me from his work or style at all. If anything, it actually made it more interesting that somebody like him would be able to make it in the mainstream. I haven't been listening to mainstream for several years, mainly because I thought that it was all pretentious corporate crap and people who I feel are more product than artist and thus don't deserve their fame.

Then I looked up Adam Lambert on American Idol, and I saw his Black and White performance + the Judges reactions + the endearing Idol background story, and that was Hook, Line and Sinker for me. haha.gif I was phailing in front of the computer screen because that was the first time I saw him perform live, and he had such amazing stage presence! and his voice hit notes that were INSANE and I LOVED the part where he just runs up to the judge's faces and starts singing that he ain't afraid of anything and He looked so touched by the judges comments crying.gif and I'm so happy to see that somebody who's worked their a** off for the past 8 years finally get their break especially since they're so incredibly talented and superstar material! w00t.gif

... That was the point I stopped making sense and turned into a rambling fangirl incapable of conveying articulate and coherent speech. I could only squee and gush about Adam Lambert. laughing.gif People thought I was going crazy because English is supposed to be my best subject and I'm a straight A student. Thankfully this phase only lasted 2 weeks, or I'm pretty sure my brain would have exploded due to rabidness haha.gif I was pretty nuts. I promise I'm tame and levelheaded now though. thumbsup.gif I never even bothered with with american pop culture, I only cared about Japanese pop culture haha.gif But during that time it was crazy because NEVER have I ever been so obsessed with a celebrity, even more so an AMERICAN MAINSTREAM celebrity. I didn't know it would ever happen to me but it did, so now I can check off the "Severe Celebrity Worship" off of my crazy-things-that-youths-do list.

2 months later, I think I've seen every single Adam Lambert interview, appearance, news article, music vid, photo etc... I think I now know why I was so obsessed with him. I have tons of respect for him. Especially after how gracefully he handled the entire AMA "scandal". He's just someone who gets it and that's very rare these days in pop culture. Most celebs are in the fritz and I don't blame them, considering the ridiculous amount of public scrutiny and insanity they get. It's overwhelming and I now understand why Britney Spears went crazy. I got really pissed off at how much crap Lambert was getting from the entire ABC and AMA "scandal". But I also found it to be hysterical because it was so massively blown out of proportion and the new anchors/tabloids were so dense and didn't notice that.

No I do not wish that Lambert was straight. I see him as a role model, simply because his philosophy and style resonate very well with me.It's very similar to mine, except his is more well thought out, developed and expansive because he's an adult and I'm still a teen. I was also very precocious, showoffy, liked to dress up, liked to pose for photos and liked to perform and sing as an elementary school kid too. But it was something I gave up when I went into junior high because of self-conciousness, body image issues, bad skin with acne etc....(Kinda like Lambert in highschool LOL emotional eater). It was easy for me to make friends and I'm great with leadership and social events, but I felt that I was holding back a lot and selling myself short. Seeing Lambert where he is now gives me a feeling of self empowerment. I feel like I'm a lot more open-minded, less conservative (I was conservative in the first place cuz I was scared of being judged) and articulate after a summer of following Adam Lambert's work, interviews etc... I do things that come naturally to me now and it's liberating I tell ya!


Whew! That was long. Don't even get me started on his voice and performance style, fashion and I how I gleefully enjoy all his work etc... or else this post will never end. This story makes me sound extremely dedicated LOL, but it's true and that's why I posted it here. original.gif

Long Live King Glambert!
