If there's one thing Adam Lambert has proven over the last few months, it's that he's his own man.
He'll come out of the closet on his own time, he'll create his own versions of classic songs and no one will tell him otherwise. It's an admirable quality.
In a recent interview, the singer said the same creative freedom will apply to his debut album. Record label 19 Entertainment has not put any restrictions on the type of CD he wants to make.
"I think there's a little bit of a misconception out in the public that people that come out of American Idol are puppetted and kind of controlled," Adam told E! News. "That hasn't been my experience one bit. They've been completely supportive and collaborative with me and all the powers that be are really trying to facilitate my artistic vision."
How many copies of Adam Lambert's debut album will you purchase?
Of the CD - which hits stores in less than two months! - Lambert said he's working with top producers such as Linda Perry and Ryan Tedder. He's also penning his own singles.
"I really feel I've gotten to inject a lot of this music on the album with my own personal vocal stylings and my own lyrical content. A lot of it talks about stuff I really care about and that I find interesting, so that feels really good."
Of course, no interview would be complete without asking Adam for his feelings on new judge Ellen DeGeneres. His reply:
"She's obviously a fan of the show, and she's been in the entertainment industry for a long time... I think she'll provide a lot of great insight and really speak for the people that watch the show that aren't all that well versed in the music industry and in music."
