What Adam Lambert Learned from Lady Gaga and Madonna...

by at . Comments

Since coming in second on American Idol, Adam Lambert has accomplished every professional dream he could ever have imagined.

But while he's proud of his debut album, and excited to be touring the globe these days, nothing has compared to meeting a pair of his personal heroes: Lady Gaga and Madonna.

Speaking to Australia's The Daily Telegraph this week - in anticipation of his October 20 concert in that country - Lambert passed along the words of wisdom these icons shared with him.

Adam Lambert won't be donning a meat dress, but he'll be taking other pieces of advice from Lady Gaga and Madonna.

From Lady Gaga: "She told me about the previous three years. She worked really, really hard before she made it. She told me there's no glamour, you don't get a lot of sleep, you don't get a lot of stability in your social life - you just have to count on yourself and go for it. It was a good pep talk. And she was right."

From Madonna: "She told me that you can't get wrapped up in all the media and message boards, that everyone's going to have an opinion. People will criticize you especially when you're doing it well. You can't do much better than getting career advice from Madonna. She's the queen, right?"

Lambert also talked about the fine line he has to walk as an openly gay person in Hollywood. He said:

"I'm very comfortable with my sexuality and I have no qualms talking about it. It's important for me to be bold about it. There are not a lot of examples of that in pop culture. I'm happy to fill that role."

At the same time... "I'm not a gay spokesman. I'm a singer. I'm an entertainer who happens to be gay."

@ randyjacksonsbutt--- Gaga is not gay, she only supports gay rights. We can argue about her music, showmanship and originality but her activism is truly wonderful in my opinion.

When Lady Gaga first came out it was refreshing to see someone do something different for a change. However, the more she opens her 23 year old yapper you start to see that she is really just a female version of Boy George. Give her ten years and she will be assaulting escorts in her apartment.
