Adam Lambert Covers Fiasco Magazine in Black
Adam Lambert loves the color black. He’s pretty much the new Man in Black. It’s his signature hue, and he rocks it on the cover of the new issue of Fiasco, which hits stands today (Dec. 10).
The always stylish singer, who is slowly returning to his inky black locks after a stint as a platinum blond, looks dashing on the cover. Even his adapting and adjusting hair looks fashion forward. He earned the “Glambert” nickname due to his penchant for thick, black “guyliner” and glammed out look. But here, there is an air of sophistication and he holds back a little. It works for him.
The former ‘American Idol‘ contestant — he didn’t win, but went on to have a bigger career than Kris Allen, the singer who defeated him, including a No. 1 record, which was a first for a LGBT artist — spoke about life on a reality singing show and as an artist beyond all the hoopla that comes with being on a ratings juggernaut.
“It’s interesting, because you get all this hype and celebrity and it’s of the moment. But as far as being an artist, that’s not really explored until you put out your own original material,” he said, encapsulating the ‘Idol’ and post-’Idol’ experience.
He also addressed his image and style, which is a repeat topic when it comes to Lambert, saying, “The way I look at it, there’s just as much pressure [on men], but men aren’t supposed to talk about it. It’s supposed to seem easy, but men, especially in the public eye, are just as worried as women are.”
He also joked about the correlation between his style and image, and his status as a LGBT icon. “For the general audience, they look at the way I style myself and they go, ‘Errrr, that’s gay,’ but you ask a handful of gay guys and they’re like, ‘I would never wear that!’” he joked.
Ain’t no thang. Lambert always looks good.
