The new BB rules are very significant, IMO. It really narrows the focus and can really level the playing field. It will be interesting to see the impact it has on Adam, who has a smaller but very active fan base. I intend to view and stream in all the ways that really count.
It will be interesting to see if QAL performs at the Fire Benefit concert in OZ. I'm sure they would love to contribute if they can. It's a terrible thing that is happening there.
My uneducated opinion based solely on observations over the last 10 years: Our “small but very active” fan base cannot move a needle. We cannot generate hundreds of millions of views or streams needed to compete. I was reading that Latin Music is huge on YT. (This correlates with what I see there myself , for instance - @juanes released a song on Sept. 6Th with 104 Mil views atm compared with SP 4.6 Mil over the same time and a very similar number of subscribers). IMO the competition just got stiffer!
this will not stop me from doing what I can to stream and view!
as far as the Fire Benefit - I just can’t see them NOT doing it! Dr Bri posted this just yesterday
as a matter of fact I think they timed the benefit around the QAL date in Sydney, it is not a coincidence Imo.
The new BB rules will be a blessing to some artists and a curse to others. Plain and simple. We are a loyal but pretty finite fan base. My brain tells me to view and stream as much as possible, which I will do. But my heart tells me to just sit back and enjoy Adam's music and enjoy the magical journey of his life. There's room for both.
deb5anne - same here! I have a feeling 2020 will be a great year for Adam and, by extension, all of us.
I agree. It has been an extraordinary year for Adam. Performing at the Oscars and attending Vanity Fair and Gaga post Oscar parties. Concerts where adoring fans are going BSC over you. Traveling like rock stars. Documentary about you on a major network. Moving from a $4Mil home into a $7Mil home. Magazine covers and interviews on and about you. I can't imagine that giving up that life (after living it or being a part of it) and those experiences to live as an average everyday Joe would be easy and preferable to anyone. And no amount of bravado changes that. I think Adam has done and achieved more than enough to secure his future and lifestyle but 2020 I think will be even better for him. I'm really looking forward to everything.

nica575 I totally agree. Dainty is a super promoter and I'm sure the date was chosen to fit into QAL's OZ schedule. It fits right in w/o any problems. Now, fingers crossed it's televised in some form that we can view.
Although the reason for the benefit is truly sad, the event would be exciting I'd imagine...and would get lots and lots of publicity.
I sure hope they can contain these fires soon...our Cali fires are bad enough...can't imagine having them at the scale of these Australia fires. And I can't even think about all those precious animals lost, not to mention the people.
Bringing Tweets or IG pics over is easy....they embed and show up automatically. Just right click on the twitter link at the top of the page to copy (h ttps://twitter.com/amylizwrites/status/1214224122206728199) and paste it here in the reply. IG works the same way.
"He has something about him, an aura, a kind of ‘dark Elvis’ vibe—and what a voice!" Roger Taylor of Queen.
Well we talk about Adam being under the radar. Or not as successful commercially as he should be. But when I look at artists like Michael Jackson or Gaga. Their work ethic in conjunction with their insane level of fame clearly Takes it toll. Steady and modest success is underrated.
QAL for me in just over a month. First outdoor stadium show for me. Should he good.
So once again the two Adams are confused. The contestants hear "Adam Lambert" and think of "Adam Levine" and then guess Maroon 5. It's so weird that this happens so often. The two Adams are SO different.
Amy's video is very fun! WWRY just shows up in the oddest ways. It's an iconic song. No reason why a Buddhist monk can't rock out with the best of them!
Hope we do see QAL performing at the fire benefit concert!
Today it is #Driekoningen ! 💖 This year we will stay a bit longer in the generous atmosphere, because on 29 and 30 May the three kings of Queen + Adam Lambert will come to the #ZiggoDome ! So you can not only enjoy today, but also enjoy! 🙌

atomom: Adam's artistry is in full display: the surprise of hiccuppy gasps right before "new eyes", the sensuous tongue, one-two punch of "damn" smile, head thrown back, body drops to heavy guitar beats, a lusciously looking Adam--all make NE a visual/aural feast.

phronni7: Linda, Thank you so much for your kind wishes and thoughts. I tried to send an earlier thanks, but I don’t know what happened. I was definitely in Zombie mode and might still be to some extent. But I love “I was born to Love You”. Than you again, Laur
