Adam Lambert has followed up an historic achievement with a brand new music video.

The former American Idol runner-up finished atop the Billboard 200 chart last week, becoming the first openly gay musician to ever accomplish that feat. So, what does a talented singer do for an encore?

He unveils the official video for "Never Close Our Eyes," giving fans a futuristic look at a depressing world with not nearly enough color or dancing. But have no fear, Lambert is here!

Watch him lead a revolution:

"The one thing that I was really excited about was maybe something sort of science fiction," says Adam of the shoot. "Something kind of New World Order, in the future. Something not of this reality. When we put that out there, a gentleman called Dori Oskowitz came back with an amazing treatment. This director is a really cool guy, totally on the same page as me."

Adam Lambert has made history.

The former American Idol runner-up shot past another famous series alumnus this week and claimed the number-one spot on the Billboard 200 for his latest album, "Trespassing." In doing so, Lambert became the first openly gay man to sit atop the chart.

Yes, Clay Aiken achieved the same status with his 2003 CD, but he did not come out of the closet until five years later.

Of course, the important thing is not Lambert's sexuality; it's his success. The eccentric crooner sold 77,000 units of "Trespassing" in the seven days since its release. Well done, Adam!

Here's a look at the Billboard top five:

  1. Adam Lambert, Trespassing: 77,000
  2. Adele, 21: 63,000
  3. Carrie Underwood, Blown Away: 54,000
  4. Norah Jones, Little Broken Hearts: 45,000
  5. Tenacious D, Rise of the Fenix, 44,000

Adam Lambert, you tease.

As a reward for his followers on Twitter helping to push his new record, "Trespassing," up the iTunes chart, Lambert has given us a glimpse at his next music video. It's for the track "Never Close Our Eyes."

Ok Glamily! I know ya'll been helping to chart #Trespassing! Thank you sooo much! You wanna see a sneak peak at the video??? Lambert Tweeted yesterday, proceeding to present the following:

The former American Idol runner-up has said this CD is more personal than his debut effort.

"There are songs on [the CD] that deal with that anxiety," Adam said in March. "Until I met my current boyfriend (Sauli Koskinen), I was always falling for the wrong guys, which caused my self worth to suffer. This is just some of what the album explores.”

Adam Lambert covers the latest issue of Instinct, a magazine that focuses on the LGBT community - and opens up to the publication on a topic that may cause some controversy for the former American Idol star.

"As a community, we’re a little bit resistant to a gay male pop star ourselves," Lambert says. "It’s very easy for people to look at my origin, which is American Idol, and automatically assume that I’m a commercial sellout or a puppet or a flash in the pan.

"I don’t think I’m any of those things. There’s something weird there. We’re very eager to celebrate a strong female. But to celebrate a fellow gay man – it gets catty sometimes.”

The artist will soon be coming out with a new album, one he has described as especially personal, and he elaborated here regarding what fans can expect:

“This is the kind of music I listen to. I know the style of vocal I have is kind of big. It has a certain edge to it. I’ve always loved rock, but I also love stuff that is more groove-based, more funky, more soulful, more dance music.”

Adam Lambert is simply a "crazy hedonistic rebel who wants to liberate the masses."

That's what this former American Idol star says in the latest issue of Fault, explaining to the magazine how his public persona does not always jibe with his private one.

"I’m not always as strong and confident as I may seem," Adam says. "I work hard to project pride and poise when faced with judgement and heartache. That is how I cope. I feel a bit of pressure to set a certain example that suggests that I deserve my place in this industry. I'm hard on myself and critical."

And how does his upcoming album, "Tresspassing," play into this dichotomy?

"There are songs on [the CD] that deal with that anxiety," he says. "Until I met my current boyfriend (Sauli Koskinen), I was always falling for the wrong guys, which caused my self worth to suffer. This is just some of what the album explores.”

The album was originally scheduled for a March release, but has now been pushed back so Adam can "work on some new songs," as he Tweeted a couple weeks ago.

Reports of Adam Lambert taking over as the lead singer of Queen, for a prolonged summer tour, may have been premature.

But the former American Idol runner-up has now confirmed that he'll stand in as the frontman for this iconic rock band for one unique evening in England.

"I have been invited by Queen to sing one very special concert! Sonisphere at Knebworth July 7th!” the 30-year-old artist Tweeted last night, adding: “Sorry to be coy about the details the past few weeks, but I made a promise to keep it under wraps as best I could. Gonna be a surreal night!”

It's a doubly great day to be an Adam Lambert fan today.

First, the singer announced that he would front an upcoming tour with the remaining band members of Queen, hitting up various arenas and stadiums in honor of late singer Freddie Mercury.

Now, Lambert has released the official music video for his latest single - off his soon-to-be-released album - "Better Than I Know Myself." In it, we see two sides of the singer, as a pair of personalities square off; one is all dark and leather-y, the other calm, serene, sipping on tea even.

Which will win out? Watch and see what happens:

He is the champion, our friends.

Adam Lambert will join iconic band Queen on tour this summer, both sides announced this week, a development that follows the singer's 2009 American Idol finale performance with original members Brian May and Roger Taylor; as well as their teaming up again at the MTV European Music Awards in November.

"The intention is to pay tribute to [late singer Freddie Mercury] and the band by singing some f-cking great songs," Lambert tells Great Britain's The Daily Star. "It’s to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of."

We apologize, Adam Lambert. We're a day late in wishing you a happy 30th birthday.

But the important occasion seems worth calling attention despite our tardiness because the singer isn't asking for presents. Instead, he's asking fans to contribute to a worthwhile cause.

“Today is my birthday, and for my 30th I’d like you all to help me change the world," Adam Tweeted yesterday, including a link to charity:water and asking followers to give what they can.

"Together, I bet we can raise over $1 million and bring thousands more people clean water," he added.

We've already donated. Won't you help Lambert and many others take this simple step toward a better, healthier universe?

Adam Lambert is in full-on album promotional mode.

A few days after releasing the cover art for "Trespassing," the former American Idol favorite is taking fans behind the scenes of his upcoming music video for the first single off that CD, "Better Than I Know Myself."

"Sometimes you screw up or you say something to hurt your partner’s feelings, or you haven’t been supportive," Adam says below. "This song basically owns that, says, ‘Look, I’m sorry. Sometimes I’m not perfect but without you I don’t know what I would do with myself. I need you because you are the only person that knows me better than I know myself."
