American Idol: Adam Lambert parts with record label & pleads with relatives of LGBT teens!
Adam Lambert has ditched his record label it has been confirmed, after it was claimed that he suffered “creative differences” with RCA.
The American Idol star was apparently being pushed towards recording a new album full of covers and when news of the plans leaked online this week, his huge and enthusiastic fan base took to Twitter and Facebook to blast the idea.
Glamberts would much rather see Adam writing and recording his own tunes and once again showcasing his songwriting abilities and when his label seemed to be against this idea, Adam apparently decided to part company with the team and will now decide on a new home for his new music.
Lambert revealed the news today, confirming:
“Over the past four years, I have been truly fortunate to work with an amazing roster of producers, writers and engineers. Thanks to them, I have grown as both a songwriter and a vocalist. Artistically & professionally, I think it is essential that I continue with this evolution.”
Adam didn’t want to give too much away about his next album but he did tease some details and admitted that he wants the record to consist mostly of his own tunes and not anyone else’s previously released tracks. He continued:
“I am already deep into writing new material with some very talented colleagues for a brand new album, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this new sound & direction. This music is where my heart is, and I believe that is what my fans want to hear.
“So after careful consideration, I have made the decision to respectfully part ways with RCA,” he said. “My passion for the music & respect for the fans will always come first. I am excited to find a new label team who shares this vision.”
Meanwhile, despite the tumultuous time in his own career, the flamboyant singer has also been continuing with his charity work and this week he has pleased with relatives of LGBT teens to be more understanding and accepting of their gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered children.
Speaking to The Advocate after his performance at AT&T’s Live Proud concert, Adam explained:
“I think a lot of older generation parents believe that the life of a LGBT person is going to be really hard and fraught with all this turmoil. Well, most of that turmoil comes from a family rejecting them, so the first step is a family embracing a person for who they are. And that’s not that hard.”
“You look around major cities around the country, it’s not hard. There’s great community, great support system, and there’s a lot of gay kids out there. It’s not that difficult.”
Adam cherishes his position as a role model but he doesn’t want young people to try to copy them. He’d rather inspire them to be themselves and follow their own path than to try to emulate his and continued:
“That’s been my mission this whole time, to encourage people to be who they are. Don’t mimic me. I’m not your example. I’m only trying to get people to do what they want.”
