This past week Adam stepped in to film Idol season 14 audition rounds in NYC since Keith Urban was unavailable due to the death of Nicole’s father.(OMG LOOK IT’S ADAM LEVINE AND SHAKIRA AND THAT COUNTRY GUY WHO IS MARRIED TO MIRANDA LAMBERT! WAIT….THAT’S NOT RIGHT….)
And not only did we get to see him rock TWO different colored suits..
We got to hear a bit about his upcoming third album when he sat down to interview with Ryan. He didn’t say much but he did say he had a new label (duh) and that any and every genre was pretty much on the table (EVEN *GASP* RAP!! WHERE ARE MY PEARLS TO CLUTCH!?!) and that he’s really happy. YAY! But the MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION raised during this unexpected jaunt back to Idol was:
WHO IS THE BIGGER BERT? JLO OR RYAN?
In this corner we have JLo who looks at Adam like this for reasons we have yet to determine:
And in this corner we have Ryan who, well, did this:
“Can you go back to you in a sweaty robe?”
SO WHO HERE IS THE ULTIMATE BERT IN THIS FACE OFF?
Let’s look at the facts here. On one hand we have ultimate diva JLo who is looking at Adam like HE JUST CREATED THE SUN AND MOON AND CHOCOLATE AND SANTA CLAUS AND ORGASMS AND PUPPIES AND NEWBORN BABY SMELL:
LOOK AT THAT FACE PEOPLE! LOOK AT THAT SMILE! LOOK AT THOSE CRAZY EYES! HERE IS ANOTHER PIC OF JLO LOOKING AT HIM:
Yeah. That’s some serious berting my friends. But is it enough to win? Is it enough when on the other hand we have Ryan basically saying:
HEY REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE TELLING ME ABOUT BEING SWEATY IN A ROBE YEA LET’S GO BACK TO THAT BECAUSE THAT’S REALLY ALL I AM THINKING ABOUT AND THIS IS TOTALLY NORMAL BEHAVIOR BETWEEN TWO BRO’S. DON’T WORRY I AM NOT UNDRESSING YOU WITH MY MIND OR ANYTHING THIS IS A TOTALLY NORMAL BRO LIKE THING TO JOKE ABOUT. BRO.
So who gets YOUR vote?

Well the QAL epic summer tour has come to an end and I thought I would take this opportunity to share some of my fave gifs that I made from the various concerts. It’s a Top 1O list, and it was hard to get it down to 10 lol. So here goes, drumroll please…..
Eat your heart out Fred Astaire, Adam dancing across the stage to go over and play with Spike at the keyboards during CLTCL
Why can’t we give love, give love…and Roger did by kissing Adam’s hand after singing Under Pressure together-one of the early “awww” moments of the tour.
I call this “Bam Bam Pow Lights Out”. It’s almost like his pelvic thrust knocked the lights out, as well as the first 5 rows.
Somebody To Love became one of my favorite performances on the tour. His taking the audience to “Glam Church” followed by the pause before he brought us to the promised land-the best! The “I’ll wait for my applause before I slay you” gif was created.
Killer Queen-ahh where to begin. This performance was campy, funny, and all kinds of sexy. We got great props with it too-a fan and a bottle of champagne. Here is Adam looking all kinds of gorgeous and sexy, we felt the heat-unf!
“Did I get you wet madame?” became the question after Adam “spit” into the audience. Fountain Adam was born.
As mentioned earlier, Somebody To Love became a fave song and it’s ending with the epic “Fringe Spin” a symbol of Adam at his crazy, happy, look at this awesome outfit self.
At the beginning of the tour, Killer Queen had Adam playing the unimpressed diva to Brian’s attempt to “woo” shall we say. What followed was some fun interaction between them on the couch.
Well it’s no surprise that this next gif also came from KQ-the COUCH. This boudoir settee saw some action this tour and I wouldn’t be surprised if a pair of arm chairs show up in the next couple of months.
Yes, top honors goes to the “Pelvic thrust machine gun” bam bam you’re all pregnant, no more words necessary.
Honorable mentions go to:
ITLOTG “Woah Woah la la la la”
Adam riding his “bike”. Yes, many great gif’s came from this so it was hard to decide but this had a little extra whip-giddy up!
This tour had A++ pants and Adam had no problems shaking that booty & turning to sashay shante back to his band.
A big thanks to all those fans who provided us with videos to watch and to create these fun awesome moments-enjoy!

A few days ago Adam decided to favorite this tweet:
Could it be that Adam is unhappy with the way his fans conduct themselves in comment sections? Is this even possible?!?!
HAS HE EVEN READ THE HANDBOOK!?!?!
I mean every fan got one of these at orientation (except the two quoted above I guess) so I guess I had just assumed he was familiar with the rules and regulations as well. Let’s get him up to speed, shall we?
Here is an excerpt:
1.) You are required to comment:
First lesson in the being a fan handbook, sub-chapter “Protocol for Comment Section Interaction”, is that you are required to comment. This is non negotiable and failure to do so can result in the revocation of your state issued stan card. If there is an article, blog post, YouTube video, tweet from someone outside the fandom, or any other digital media with an available means to reply, your first duty as a fan is to make sure you get your message across.
2.) Always identify yourself:
When beginning your comment make sure to clearly identify yourself. This can be done in many ways, but it is highly recommended you begin by making it obvious to the reader that you are an Adam fan. The words “glam, glitter, sparkly, unicorn, rainbow, bulge, bert” proceeded or followed by a series of numbers in any sequence are suggested as they are easily recognizable. Next remember that there is a strict hierarchy among fandom so stating how long you have been a fan for, and what prompted your undying love and admiration, is suggested so as to give your comments a sense of importance to other readers. Last but not least is to remember that anyone over the age of 65 is required to state their age for the wonderment of others.
3.) Clarify your intention:
After clearly identifying yourself you must further support your intention for commenting. There must be no doubt for the reader that you are here for Adam and no other reason. Some ways to accomplish this is to make blanket statements about how he is better than any other artist that ever existed, denounce other singers and their talents, and mock others for enjoying other artists since they do not possess the same abilities as Adam. These are a few examples, but feel free to use your own judgement. Remember the ruder the better.
4.) Hyperbole, hyperbole, hyperbole:
This is one of the more important steps in completing your comment, for none is truly complete without a long diatribe extolling Adam’s many virtues. Some examples would be to call him a ‘rock god”, an “icon” or any other combination of superfluous adjectives. Comparing him to, or proclaiming him to be better than, past musical icons are not required but strongly encouraged. Long, lengthy musings on his various physical attributes and what they do to your private areas is recommended, no matter how graphic or tasteless. Examples on how he has changed your life, complete with an emotional anecdote, are always a good idea even if they have little to nothing to do with the subject at hand.
5.) Demonstrate Lack of Awareness:
This is not required but it certainly is a tactic that has been employed in the past to great result. Making yourself sound as completely out of touch as possible further reinforces that your love for Adam is true and untainted by reality. If you use this method you are required to state at least one of the following: that you do not enjoy popular music, or that you do not listen to popular radio. While you are only required to state one, using both packs more of a punch. If you do happen to bring up any type of musical or cultural touchstone you must make sure it occurred on or before December, 31st 1979.
6.) The “victim card”:
Last but certainly not least, this may be the most important part of the commenting process. Never underestimate the power of using the victim card. This is the idea that no matter what happens, Adam is and forever will be scorned. Remember that no praise will ever be enough praise and it is your duty as a fan to vigorously and bitterly point out the bad in any good situation. This includes but is not limited to: perceived snubs, being overlooked in the US, American Idol conspiracies, lack of radio play, and homophobia.
There you go. Now you are well versed in how to properly comment as a fan, go forth and make those comment sections your bitch.
There. I hope after reading this, Adam will see the error of his ways. For us fans weren’t actively trying to be embarrassing as fuck, no, we were simply following an established set of rules that were given to us on our first day as fans. Simple mistake. If he wishes to make an addendum to the handbook he can simply just submit one and we can all just modify our behavior as such. Easy peasy.
Thank you to Melirose89 for assistance in reviewing the handbook. It’s very ~wordy and technical and I appreciate her patience and grasp of the English language.

The US leg of the Queen + Adam Lambert tour has now come to a close, and even though it is all still pretty fresh in our minds, let’s take a short walk down memory lane with a brief A to Z recap of this leg of the “Once in A Lifetime” tour. Thanks to @melirose89 who assisted me with this post and all the lovely photogs, videographers and gif makers out in fandom and beyond (credited pics if I knew the source)
(pic from Lambertizeme, motivational poster by me)
The recap after the cut…

Well I don’t know if anyone noticed really but I took a wee sabbatical from blogging for a bit just to rest my creative juices before era 3 and to just enjoy the QAL tour without having to worry about posting picture after picture and video after video. That’s the kind of shit that makes stanning feel like work and no thank you!! I needed a break!
BUT NOW I AM BACK. FEELING RESTED AND REPLENISHED. ARE YOU EXCITED?
I….I am gonna take that as a yes.
So many things have happened since I last blogged. Adam has ditched the blonde hair color. He grew more melvin, then he got rid of most of it, and then grew it back again. We found out he has a little bit of Tina Turner in him..
And that he’s the kind of guy who spits not swallows…
That he likes to sass his elders..
WE FOUND OUT THAT ADUFUS IS REAL!!!
But more importantly that Couchbert is the new Floorbert…
But most importantly we found out that whether he was playing a sold out Forum in LA or a sold out Madison Square Garden in NYC he
WAS A FUCKING CHAMPION IN A FUCKING GOLD GLITTERY CROWN!!!!!
Now a little more about Madison Square Garden. I was privileged enough to witness it in person and it was AMAZING. I had never truly understood why that venue was the Holy Grail of venues for a musical artist to play, and maybe I still don’t fully understand, but I have to say that from the minute I walked into the arena and down the stairs to my seat I was overcome with a massive indescribable feeling. You know when a place just has a presence? A history? That’s what I felt.
Or maybe what I felt was the Irish ale and two shots of Jameson I had at the Irish pub minutes earlier??
That’s my hand right there. Aren’t my chubby little fingers sexay? And that’s my phone…that’s where the MAGIC happens people!!!
Did I mention my seats were amazing?
I managed to end up in Glambert-ville with berts to the right and to the left and like half of my feed a stone throws away from me. It was so nice to put some faces to screen names and everyone I met was super nice. I am SO GLAD no one asked me for my glambert number like someone did to Loha in Las Vegas…LOL. I really don’t know how I would have handled that. Laughed in their face? Tell them it was 666 with crazy eyes and see how they reacted? Not sure.
I wish I could fully encapsulate with words how amazing the concert was but all I can think of to say is that listening to Youtube videos or a stream does NOT do justice to his voice, Brian’s guitar, Roger’s drumming, and any of the other elements that fused together to form such a perfect live experience. It is something that, while good on video, is UNREAL live, in the moment and surrounded by the energy from thousands of fans. There is just no comparison. I was fortunate enough to see one of the UK Hammersmith shows and while that was great, this show far surpassed that for me. The energy, the set, the production value, BRIAN’S NEVER ENDING GUITAR SOLO, the lady in front of me wearing Christmas garland as a scarf (I am on to you lady), the straight guy next to me dancing the standard dorky white man dance the whole show, the beach balls passing through the crowd. Amazing.
AND WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER SLAYED MY LIFE. LIKE IT KILLED ME DEAD AND THEN RESURRECTED ME AND THEN KILLED ME AGAIN THAT’S HOW AMAZING IT WAS.
It was so good that even the younger guy in front of me, who looked like he had maybe come with his parents and was kinda blase about the whole experience so far, whipped out his phone and started filming when Adam started slaying those notes. It gave me chills. SRSLY. And let’s not forget all of MSG (well I am gonna ignore the small section directly opposite me on the other side of the arena. I am going to assume their arms were simply tired from batting around all those beach balls.) doing the Radio Gaga clap like it should be done. It was beautiful.
Oh and I also got a pretty cool shirt.
Overall it was a SUPER AMAZING experience and it will be something I will fap over for all of eternity.
