ADAM LAMBERT: ARTIST OF THE YEAR ROLLING STONE! MTV's #3 MEN OF YEAR, CHELSEA, LETTERMAN, LENO, ADL, JINGLE BALL VIDEOS (30) EW, TIME, US PHOTOS (37)!

December 19, 2009.
37 NEW PHOTOS! 30 NEW VIDEOS! Adam Lambert continues to rack up award after award as his illustrious career moves forward. Named by the Rolling Stone Readers Poll as the Artist of the Year and US Weekly as 2009 Glam God of the Year, Adam Lambert also garnered the number three place in MTV’s Men of the Year award, barely missing out to a dead guy (Michael Jackson) and rapper Jay-Z. Adam is also listed by Time Magazine as one of the 25 People Who Mattered Most in 2009.
.
And as we have already posted the video of it (See it again at the bottom of this post), Barbara Walters chose him as one of the Most Fascinating People of 2009. In addition, Entertainment Weekly (EW) chose Adam Lambert as one of the Entertainers of the Year. The Hollywood Gossip website went one step further than Barbara by dubbing him "the Most Fascinating Singer Alive."
.
FYI: Adam's second official video, “For Your Entertainment,” available from iTunes for only four days now, has already hit number one, bouncing another gay icon, Lady Gaga, from the top spot with her brilliant “Bad Romance” video.

Although Adam Lambert has only been on the national scene for a year now, he's already developed a huge fan base, including most of Rolling Stone s devoted readers. The publication released their annual Readers Choices on Tuesday, and the American Idol runner-up was selected as the Top Artist of 2009. He beat out other megastars, including Green Day, Lady Gaga, Kings of Leon, and Pearl Jam.

Not afraid to play with dolls, Adam Lambert checks out the LIV Fashion Dolls Display in the Official H & M Artist Gift Lounge backstage at Madison Square Gardens’ Z100 Jingle Ball, where he was a presenter. The Examiner.com noted, “He probably got more attention backstage than most of the performers. Lambert was so in-demand that there was barely time to talk to him for more than two minutes.” 12-11-09 photo picture

MTV announced on Thursday, December 17, 2009, they had chosen Adam Lambert as their #3 Man of The Year, saying the “Over-the-top singer burst on the scene with American Idol and keeps surprising us. Despite his defeat at the hands of Kris Allen in the season-eight finale January 13, 2009, Adam Lambert was unquestionably the biggest Idol star of the year, if not of all time. He graced magazine covers, pundits speculated about his sexuality—he was everywhere you looked. Post-Idol, well, he just kept rising. In fact, Lambert was famous for all of 2009, which is why he comes in at #3 on our list.”

“Adam Lambert stole the show on a nightly basis during the American Idols Live! tour,” MTV continued, “In October, he premiered a delightfully over-the-top video, 'Time for Miracles,' the first single from the 2012 soundtrack. Then, in November, he began promoting his debut album CD, For Your Entertainment, by closing out the American Music Awards (AMAs)with a shocking performance that featured nods to S & M, oral sex and some good old-fashioned guy-on-guy action. It was a display that rankled network censors (who cut out most of the graphic bits from the West Coast feed), created a firestorm of controversy and led to him being dropped from a scheduled appearance on ABC's Good Morning America."

This was the infamous kiss that was so loud it was heard around the world! MTV photo. We've brought the video back with this post today because it's so hot. Check it out again!

MTV’s lavish praise went on: “For his part, Lambert didn't let the criticisms weigh him down. He refused to apologize for the AMA performance and worked very hard to continue the promotion of his For Your Entertainment album, which would debut at #3 with sales of more than 198,000 copies (By comparison, Idol winner Kris Allen's debut sold a paltry 80,000 in its first week). And when he was targeted by Eminem on the song 'Elevator' (which used a little bit of wordplay to hide a very ugly anti-gay slur), he let it roll off his back, telling MTV News that he 'didn't take it personally.' For more information, see the videos at the bottom of this post.

“A lightning rod for controversy,” MTV concluded, “a pop star bravely going where few have ventured (openly) before—Lambert was 2009. And we expect him to keep on pushing the envelope in 2010 too.”

Adam Lambert also made Time Magazine’s list of the 25 People Who Mattered Most in 2009. Although the ranking votes are still coming in, at press time Adam had already racked up highest numbers, beating out even Barack Obama and Sonia Sotomayor, to name just two. Here’s Time’s article on Adam (after the photo):

“He was not the winner of American Idol. He was not even the first Idol runner-up to later make the thoroughly unsurprising announcement that he is gay. (See Aiken, Clay.) But Lambert came first in generating attention: that eyeliner, that voice—ranging from a husky smolder to a granite-splitting glam-rock shriek—and those glittered-out, magnetic performances."

Time continued: "And there was the way Lambert treated his sexuality, which reflected the tricky path of gayness toward mainstream acceptance. Lambert never confirmed his being gay until finishing Idol, but, importantly, he never denied it."

"And unlike Aiken’s, his performances had an unmistakable erotic charge — he was a man, not a man-child," said Time Magazine. "After Idol, he infuriated some viewers with a raunchy, grinding show at the American Music Awards on ABC.

Rather than apologize, he charged a double standard for gay men while keeping a smile on his face: when Joy Behar told him, on The View, that he was ‘not exactly a nice Jewish boy,’ he quipped, ‘I’m a little different. My dreidel spins the other way.’ Lambert ended 2009 out, proud—and loud.”

Thehollywoodgossip.com has also paid homage to Adam Lambert, tying him with Lady Gaga for their Celebrity of the Year Finalist at #5:

“As 2010 draws near, The Hollywood Gossip staff looks back on the year that was, honoring finalists for our prestigious, 3rd Annual Celebrity of the Year award. These stars have given us their best, their worst, their off-the-wall antics and in the case of these two, an immediate, but lasting impact on the music world. It's time for THG to pay tribute to this greatness. Yesterday, the '09 countdown featured lots of Tiger Woods mistresses at #6. Today, we present Celebrity of the Year Finalist #5: Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga!"

“The year in music belonged to these two rising stars. He started the year as an unknown; made headlines in February for his flamboyant acts; finished second on American Idol; and has to already be considered one of the most successful singers in the show's history. Adam Lambert hasn't merely made a name for himself in 2009, he's created a cult following in fewer than 12 months.”

"Hated by some and embraced by others, the crooner managed to handle his sexuality with both subtle grace AND over-the-top exploits. Adam has more in common with Lady GaGa than unique fashion taste and controversial performances. Both are well-spoken in interviews and deadly serious about their craft. Lambert made out with a man at the American Music Awards, but 2009 will be best remembered as the year he made off with the title of Most Fascinating Singer Alive.” Read more about their Lady Gaga accolades here.

Adam Lambert told Entertainment Weekly that he’s in the planning stage of his upcoming United States tour. “I think it’s probably going to be springtime. I’ve started talking to management about putting something together. It’s not going to be a standard arena tour. We’re going to do something a little different. My big goal is I want to do something that’s very visually dynamic, and is a little more interactive feeling than your typical arena tour. So we’re looking at venues that are probably going to be a little smaller and a little more intimate.”

Adam also told EW that his favorite entertainer is Lady Gaga. “She just inspires me with her creativity and her out-of-the-box thinking. She's not afraid to take risks and to be different. She dances. She's visually interesting; she's got costumes. And she's a great musician.''

Thursday, 12-3-09, a pair of brand-new Eminem songs hit the Net, one of which, "Elevator," contains a lyric directed at Adam Lambert, Lance Bass and Clay Aiken that may be using an anti-gay slur. "Sorry, Lance, Mr. Lambert and Aiken ain't gonna make it/ They get so mad, when I call them both fake/ It's all these f---ing voices in my head, I can't take it/ Someone shut that f---ing baby up, before I shake it," he raps on the tune—with the "Fake/ It's" combination sounding a lot like a common anti-gay slur. Fan reactions to "Elevator" span from "It's very wrong" to "It's just lyrics." Watch the MTV video fan reaction report below. Adam’s own reaction is documented in the video after this one.
