Adam Lambert Clears Up Rumors On 'The Jay Leno Show'
Adam Lambert appeared on "The Jay Leno Show" on Monday night, where he discussed how dramatically his life has changed since he competed on "American Idol," performed at the American Music Awards and released his first album, For Your Entertainment.
"I'm hanging on white knuckles. It's a good ride. I mean how hasn't [life changed since 'Idol']?" he said. "It's wild. I have people that are so supportive of me that are buying the CD."
Adam Lambert On Leno: I Surprised ABC With The Stage Hijinks
Adam Lambert is still unruffled by network decisions to cancel his appearances on several shows following his homoerotic performance at the AMAs.
"I really think they were backed into a corner on what happened," he told Jay Leno Monday night. "There's the FCC and different groups that took offense. They have to do what they have to do."
"Do you think they bailed on you?" Leno asked.
"I did surprise them with some things I didn't do in rehearsal," Lambert said. "Let's be fair. I wasn't as consistent during rehearsal."
"That's lawyer talk!" said Leno. "Like Tiger had transgressions. I love that kind of talk."
Lambert also talked about how much Paula will be missed from 'Idol' and cleared up two rumors: he hasn't developed a makeup line and his father was not mortified by his AMA performance (a rumor he said Bill O'Reilly tried to spread).
Glam rocker Adam Lambert was a special guest on The Jay Leno Show last night (Dec. 21). The American Idol Season 8 Runner-Up had a good chat with the lively talk show host and also performed the new single Whataya Want From Me from his debut CD For Your Entertainment. In the interview, Lambert said his parents are supportive of his career and of his choices. He also cleared up a few Internet rumors that were circulating.
"I haven't started a makeup line. I might, but I haven't yet. My father was rumored to be mortified by what I did [at the 'American Music Awards'] and that we're not speaking. That's a rumor. ... I think Bill O'Reilly perpetuated that. Lovely man. Everyone's entitled to their opinion. [My dad and I] were laughing about it ... so that was a rumor."
