We were lucky enough to spend an hour or so with Adam Lambert earlier this week when he swung by our New York City headquarters. We talked to him about a variety of topics, including his new video for “Better Than I Know Myself” and some of the thematic differences you’ll notice between For Your Entertainment and Trespassing, but we also got his thoughts on some recent goings-on in the pop culture world. We’ll be sharing the full interview with you over the coming weeks, but we wanted to get this clip out to the Glambert Nation as soon as it was humanly possible.
Since Adam is no stranger to controversial live television performances (*cough* the 2009 AMAs!!! *cough*), we thought we’d get his opinion on Nicki Minaj’s “Exorcism Of Roman” number from at the Grammys this past weekend. “It was a really intense idea,” he told us. “I was just trying to follow what the narrative was, I was a little lost. But it was interesting and she went for it.”
Lambert continued, “Being an artist, it doesn’t always work, whatever it is that you’re doing. But there’s something to be said about going for it. She has a point of view, and she’s bold, and she wanted to tell a story. I just wasn’t sure the story, but it looked rad.”
We’ll have more from our interview with Adam Lambert for you next week! (PS, only 32 more days until Trespassing comes out!)
