He may have performed in front of millions of American Idol viewers and seen his album sales take off, but Adam Lambert didn’t officially strike it big until yesterday.
That’s when he sat down with talk show icon Oprah Winfrey. The singer didn’t touch on anything new in the interview – no, he doesn’t regret his American Music Awards performance; yes, he’s gay – but he did take the next step in a burgeoning career.
In the following clip, Lambert takes fans on a mini journey of his life. In a nutshell: he eats and he shops. See what we mean:
Lambert also shared his New Year’s resolution with viewers: to enjoy every single moment in the spotlight.
He recognized that fame is fleeting and that many winners of American Idol quickly fell out of the public consciousness (no offense, Taylor Hicks). Therefore, he’s gonna try his hardest to take in every opportunity and always appreciate what he’s accomplished.
Spoken like the Adam Lambert we know and love, right?
Of course, Adam performed for Oprah and fans, too. Watch his rendition of “If I Had You” below.
