All Your Favorite Musicians Have Voted, Have You?

The big day is upon us: Happy Election Day! After many months of endorsements and rallying, even the most famous and busy musicians are taking some time to hit the polls or submit their absentee ballots. And because it’s such a special day, many are snapping (sometimes illegal) photos and sharing the experience. Below, because we sincerely hope you’ll follow their example and exercise your right to vote today, we’re rounding-up all their Tweets and Instagrams as they share them. Until the polls close… Read more…

EXCLUSIVE: Adam Lambert On His Pretty Little Liars Appearance — “My Vampire Teeth Were My Shield, My Armor”

Adam Lambert has long been one of our favorite artists and, quite frankly, one of the main reasons that we were so psyched about attending the Live In The Vineyard festival in Napa, California this weekend. Adam sat down with our VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown host Jim Shearer for an interview that you’ll see on next week’s episode of the show (premiering on Saturday, November 10), but we wanted to get this clip up of Adam talking about his recent appearance on Pretty Little Liars up for the Glambert Nation as quickly as possible (hence, the low quality video; we sacrificed a bit of quality for speed!).

As you’ll see in the video clip above, Adam admits that he’s not entirely sure how he ended up on the set of Pretty Little Liars, but he did have a clear idea of what he wanted to do when he got there. “[The producers] told me it was a Halloween episode and they suggested kind of a costume thing,” Adam explained to us just a few short hours ago. “They said, ‘Oh, you know, we want to do like a steampunk band,’ and I said, ‘Vampire.’ They were trying to backpedal, and I said ‘No, I’m going to be a vampire.’ And they said, ‘Well, maybe you should…’ and I [said] ‘I’m going to come in the teeth, you’re not gonna get ‘em off me.’ Sometimes you just gotta put your foot down. Or your teeth down. Or something!”

You see, Adam wanted to make sure he was completely comfortable for what amounted to one of his biggest acting gigs to date. “When I got on set, I was really nervous ’cause I’ve never done a sitcom/TV drama thing before,” he bravely admitted. “Thank God I had my vampire teeth in because that was my shield, my armor.”

We’ll have more about Adam Lambert’s appearance at Live In The Vineyard here on VH1 Tuner tomorrow, and don’t forget to watch the VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown on Saturday for more of Jim Shearer’s interview with Glambie!

Live In The Vineyard: LP’s Haunting Voice And Otherwordly Whistling Skills Get The Weekend Started Off On The Right Note

LP Performs At Live In The Vineyard 2012

Twice a year, the not-so-disparate worlds of music and wine are paired together during the weekend-long Live In The Vineyard event, held in the incredibly picturesque environs of Northern California’s Napa Valley. Co-founded by music industry veterans Claire Parr and Bobbii Hach-Jacobs, the event is celebrating its 10th anniversary this weekend by bringing high wattage talent like Alanis Morrissette, Gavin DeGraw, Adam Lambert, VH1 You Oughta Know artists Delta Rae and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, and more into the grape-growing capital of the United States to perform.

The weekend’s festivities kicked off in earnest last night at Bottega, the restaurant founded by celebrity chef Michael Chiarello (Bravo’s Top Chef Masters, the Food Network’s Easy Entertaining). Chiarello was celebrating the upcoming release of his new cookbook, Live Fire, and put on a cooking demonstration —pasta and clams on the grill!— with the spritely musician LP. The Brooklyn-born, ukelele-wielding LP (Laura Pergolizzi) looks a little bit like Don’t Look Back-era Bob Dylan, but sings like Tegan Quin if Tegan had a more expansive vocal range.

Adam Lambert Grows Fangs For Pretty Little Liars

All aboard! Trick-or-treating kicked off early this season, with Adam Lambert officially ushering in the season last night with a guest appearance on Pretty Little Liar’s. Starring as the glammest vampire in all the land, he’s called to Roseland to perform at the Little Liars’ Ghost Train bash. With his patted a deathly white and fangs in full show, he got flirty with Aria (Lucy Hale), and then hit the stage  two Trespassing tracks, “Cuckoo” and “Trespassing.” To be sure, tricks and trouble were aplenty on that train last night, but Lambert’s performances were all treat.

Bite Into This Preview Of Adam Lambert’s Pretty Little Liars Appearance


Now that we are older and allowed to eat candy for dinner any time we want, we find that Halloween is often only so sweet as our favorite television show’s spooky holiday special. And this year, Pretty Little Liars has roped the full-sized Snickers equivalent of a guest star for theirs: Adam Lambert. How’s that for a treat?

Back in August, Adam teased the role by sharing a picture of himself all gussied up in a ruffle-chested blouse, his face blotted pale and fangs in full show. Now, we get one better as a preview the episode has made its way online. The quick clip shows Vampire Adam and Aria (played by Lucy Hale) getting chatty before Vambert runs off to perform and a spooky mime sweeps through the Halloween party. What brings Adam to town? What songs will he play? Is he actually a vampire, or does he just look really good dressed as one? Guess we’ll have  tune in on October 23rd to find out!

Learn Shanghainese With Adam Lambert: Ngu Ei Nong! I Love You!

In Shanghai, China over the weekend, Adam Lambert was schooled in the local dialect live and on air while appearing on the popular talkshow 80′s Talkshow. Looking extra glam with his silver hair and in a borrowed studded leather jacket — “Don’t make me give it back!” — he listened attentively as the dear instructor went over a few useful phrases. As the show’s host attests to, Shanghainese is a tricky dialect, but Glam was down for the challenge. “Okay, I am going to do a really good job,” he said, sounding genuinely eager to learn.

You can learn, too! Just repeat after him, after he repeats after her:

Popdust’s No. 1 Pop Star Justin Bieber Reveals His “Favorite Things,” Likes Michael Jackson And Porcupines

Popdust has gone ahead and done the impossible: ranked the world’s greatest pop stars. Sure to account for the inspiring, bewildering, hilarious, and the naughty, they’ve created a comprehensive list they call the Popdust 40, described as “artists whose music we love and love lives we find fascinating, who shoot the videos and tap out the tweets that amuse us and who employ stylists to create the globe’s most interesting hair.” Included in their mix are fan nominated K-Pop sensations Big Bang to 2Chainz, Glambert  to Madonna, P!nk to Carly Rae, Skrillex and Ellie Goulding to Jay-Z and Beyonce, and so and and so forth. The list is thorough and exhaustive, and try as we might, we can’t think of anyone more deserving than these forty. And most of all we like that, instead of simply stopping when they hit Number One (spoilers ahead!), they went ahead and asked their No. 1 artist Justin Bieber to rank a few favorites of his own. Turns out Popdust’s King of Pop is a fan of that other King of Pop! Read more…

BRACKET MADNESS: JT, Lil Wayne, Lambert And MJ Face-off In Round Two!

If there is one thing that the four male artists in Round 2 in our latest edition of Bracket Madness have in common, it is that they each swept the floor with their opponent in Round 1. Justin Timberlake said “Bye Bye Bye” to Justin Bieber, getting 81% of the vote to Biebs’s 18%. Kanye West posed a bit more of a challenge for Lil Wayne, but Weezy still won his round with more than half the vote! Daughtry didn’t stand a fighting chance against Adam Lambert, who won with a whopping 77% of the votes. And Oprah’s latest Usher interview did nothing to convince voters, as he lost to Michael Jackson who got 83% of the vote.

Here’s where things get tough … Timberlake is facing Weezy in Round 2 and Lambert is taking on the King of Pop himself. So how do you decide? Aside from following your heart, here are a few facts about each of the artists that may help sway your vote …

BRACKET MADNESS: In Battle Of The American Idol Alumni, Do You Prefer Lambert’s Glam Or Daughtry’s Brawn?

One thing that’s for sure is that it takes more than just a little bit of talent or luck to make it to the Top Ten on American Idol. Year in and year out, the show has churned big stars who have been super successful in the music industry, whether or not they actually won the show.
