Though the news broke earlier this morning, it took hearing it from his own mouth on VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live this morning to shake our too-good-to-be-true disbelief: Adam Lambert has been tapped to host this year’s VH1 DIVAS, airing live on Sunday, December 18th at 9PM ET/8C. Lambert shared a few details about the gig — he says there he will “definitely be singing,” but was reticent when the talk turned to dancing: “You know my foot will be tapping and my foot will be swinging, but I don’t know if we’ll have any full choreographed moments,” he laughed — before taking the deep dive into what “diva” means to him .
According to Lambert, “a diva” could be a lot of different things: “I think being a diva is high levels of fabulousness, it’s confidence, it’s fashion, it’s talent, it’s just a real high level of fierce,” he said, insistent that these all be considered positive things. And does he, The Glam One, count himself a diva? He said only “sometimes,” because “it’s my own worst enemy when I look in the mirror sometimes.” Maybe he needs to add “humble” to that list.
