Singer Adam Lambert praises coronavirus ‘champions,’ says Trump should defer to medical experts
International singer-songwriter Adam Lambert has praised the Governor of California and Mayor of Los Angeles for their responses to Covid-19, but told CNBC that on a federal level, U.S. leadership is “a little bit chaotic.”
The star, who lives in Los Angeles, said there were cases of “really wonderful leadership” in California, but when asked what more he would like President Trump to do, he replied: “I think it’s more that I want him to do less.”
“It seems to me that when he has a press conference and he speaks, it just makes things worse. So if he would just maybe let the professionals, the medical professionals, step in, I think if he delegated a little bit more responsibly, that might be good,” he told CNBC’s Tania Bryer.
The White House was not immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC.
Lambert, who has collaborated with rock band Queen as lead vocalist since 2012, described how he and band mates Brian May and Roger Taylor decided to release a lockdown version of one of Queen’s iconic tracks. They have renamed it “You are the Champions,” and it’s being released in aid of the World Health Organization’s Covid-19 Solidarity Response Fund for frontline healthcare workers.
“Brian had been on a great streak of recording covers for his Instagram, and that’s where the idea sparked. He got in touch with us and said let’s do ‘We Are The Champions’,” he said.
“Then we started thinking about who we would dedicate it to, and then we have this idea of why don’t we go as far as to change the title of the song. I think this situation warrants that type of iconic shift and so that’s what we did. We recorded it separately in our houses on cell phones.”
The global artist, who launched his career after being runner-up on American Idol in 2009, told CNBC how he thinks the music industry will be impacted by Covid-19.
“I do think that we’re going to see a lot of alternatives to the live performance space. Everyone’s sort of scrambling and finding new technology which is incredible. And it’s exciting in a way, because I think it’s a new challenge,” he said.
“Now that music is being consumed in this digital format and streaming is sort of the main way that people get to hear things, I almost think in some ways it may be a great time for us to be releasing music that way.”
Good Morning everyone! This site is so important to me - it surely fills in gaps while we're all so isolated. Adam's interviews were fabulous as usual! He's smart and eloquent and beautiful to watch. They were all great interviews. Wow! I wish they hadn't reached out to The White Houses! The last thing Adam needs is to be mixed up in that mess. Oh well -- we'll see. Also - 3 quick questions (just curious) that I'm sure y'all will know - 1. What does Neil do for a living? He's so clever and smart and quick-witted. I hope he's able to put all that to good use. 2. Where does Eber live? How close to Adam?? 3. Did Adam's other house ever sell?? I know he had a sale -- then I didn't hear anything further. These questions are all so " not important" but I am curious. Love y'all & thanks!!
Eber lives in the san Diego area, not sure if in a suburb, but he refers to it as san Diego. I believe Adam's house is still listed for sale. Appears whatever "deal" that was mentioned by the new realtor was more of a sales pitch. I have no idea what Neil does for a living. He used to do Youtube vids for a gaming enterprise years ago. I believe Elise works in an office setting.
This is for major Adamtopia announcements. If you want to discuss Adam, start with today's Daily News & Information thread.
nannygoat: Just heard this parody of Bohemian Rhapsody. Thought everyone would enjoy it. Amazes me how people can be so creative. ow.ly/p9ZH30niDPS and did I mention how much I am enjoying all the 'goodies' we got lately? "Feel Something" is gorgeous.

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
