Everyone loves a good rih-interpretation.
And no artist seems to be acting as more of a muse for the pop world lately than Illuminati Instagram Queen, Navy Commander and #PhuckYoFeelings Pot Pop Princess herself, Miss RiRi Fenty.
Well hello, Adam.
While he’s been busy performing across South Africa and China over the past few weeks (and teaming up with the legendary Miss Cyndi Lauper for the Home for the Holidays concert last night in NYC), the Trespassing singer took time out recently to shoot a cover story with UK arts/culture magazine, Fiasco–and damn, the boy’s cleans up nicely.
Apparently a little less guyliner and a slicked back quiff goes a long way, ’cause Mr. Lambert’s gone from ’70′s glam-rocker to serving full-on GQ model realness. Loving this more muted look–let’s hope it sticks for a little while!
The full issue goes on sale Monday, but for now, here’s a few teases from the accompanying interview (and one more shot below.)
Calling all Glamberts!
Yesterday, former Idol contestant, part-time Queen frontman and full-time Outlaw of Love Adam Lambert made history by becoming the first LGBT artist in history to top (ALRIGHT, SIMMER DOWN) the Billboard 200 chart at #1, selling over 77,000 copies and knocking fellow Idol alum Carrie Underwood‘s Blown Away. A huge day for Adam, and an even huger day for the gay community. Kudos, Mr. Lambert!
Still haven’t heard the album yet? Well, don’t be Shady! I got you! To celebrate the release…
MuuMuse is giving away FIVE copies of Trespassing.
Earlier this week, Gossip released their fabulous, Brian Higgins-produced new record A Joyful Noise, featuring lead single “Perfect World,” as well as their brand new single (and my personal favorite of the album), “Move In The Right Direction.” (Seen the video yet? Well, you DAMN WELL SHOULD.)

All’s not what it seems in the mind of Adam Lambert.
The Ray Kay-directed clip for “Better Than I Know Myself,” the lead single off of Lambert’s upcoming sophomore record Trespassing, takes us on a split-screen tour of Lambert’s psyche, revealing a fiery duel of emotions: A little bit of darkness, a little bit of light. Some angel, some devil. The good and the bad. One can’t exist without the other–it’s the yin and the yang, ya dig?
Gorgeously shot, brilliantly acted (the liquor-guzzling shots of Lambert are particularly venomous), “Better Than I Know Myself” is undoubtedly his finest work to date. Kudos to you, Adam!
“Better Than I Know Myself” was released on December 20. (iTunes)
