Net Worth: According to Celebrity Net Worth in 2013, Adam Lambert has a net worth of 10 million USD.

Childhood: Adam Lambert was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Leila and Eber Lambert. Soon after he was born, Lambert's family moved to Rancho Peñasquitos in San Diego, California. At the age of 9, he attended the Metropolitan Educational Theatre network and appeared in the local productions of shows like 'You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown' and 'Fiddler on the Roof'. He studied at Mesa Verde Middle School and then Mount Carmel High School until graduation in 2000. After that, he attended California State University, Fullerton, but moved to Los Angeles after five weeks.

Career: At the age of 19, Lambert landed a job performing on a cruise ship. At the age of 21, he was cast in the musical 'Hair' during its European tour. In 2004, he appeared alongside Val Kilmer in the role of Joshua in the Kodak Theatre's 'The Ten Commandments: The Musical'. He received positive review for his work in the production, and was brought to the attention of the casting director of 'Wicked'. He was cast as an understudy and became an ensemble member in the first national tour of the production in 2005. After appearing as the front man in the underground rock band The Citizen Vein, Lambert auditioned for the eight season of American Idol. He secured a place in the competition, advancing quickly through the ranks and making it into the final. Although he only came second, he was the only person to receive a standing ovation from Simon Cowell in the 10 years he spent as a judge on the show. Lambert's first official studio album, 'For Your Entertainment', was released in November, 2009. The album debuted at number three on Billboard's 200 list and received favourable reviews from critics as well as a Grammy award nomination. In 2010, the album had reached Gold status. In 2009, he received complaints for a performance at the 'American Music Awards of 2009', where he was seen kissing a male bassist and grabbing another's crotch. This led to a cancelation for a performance from ABC, although he was soon asked to perform on CBS' 'The Early Show' on the same date. In 2010, he returned to American Idol as the first contestant-turned-mentor. This year also saw him tour as the frontman for Queen, as a well-received interpreter of Freddie Mercury. In 2012, he released his second album, 'Trespassing', to great reviews. The following year, he appeared in the fifth season of 'Glee' as a character involved in a muti-episode arc.

Personal Life: Lambert became widely recognised as one of the first openly gay artist in the pop world, and has devoted a large amount of time to promoting LGBT equality.

Adam Lambert Says The Music Industry Holds Gay Artists Back From Using Male Pronouns


Adam Lambert

Singer Adam Lambert has said he believes the music industry is still not comfortable with gay popstars using male pronouns in their lyrics. Lambert, who in 2012 became the first openly gay artist to hit number one on the Billboard chart with his album Trespassing, said that although attitudes are shifting, there’s still some in the industry who need convincing when it comes to letting LGBT artists fully express themselves through their lyrics.

Adam LambertAdam Lambert has spoken about music industry attitudes towards the use of male pronouns by gay popstars.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Lambert said: "I think there have been a lot of things in general that have shifted within the LGBT community and mainstream acceptance. People are becoming less ignorant and the younger generation that's coming up right now are like, 'So what?' That's melting into and affecting pop culture in general.”

Nearly 20,000 people have signed a petition to stop Adam Lambert heading Singapore’s New Year Countdown concert.

Throughout his lengthy and prestigious career, singer-songwriter James Taylor has achieved many great things, but a US Number One album has always eluded him: until today! Taylor’s 47 year wait for a Billboard chart topping LP came to an end this week as it was announced that his new effort Before This World had outsold all rivals.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, Taylor’s 17th studio album sold 97,000 copies in its first week of release to debut atop the Billboard 200, with 96,000 of those coming through actual album sales (as opposed to streaming or track equivalents). His very first album, a self-titled effort, was released in December 1968 but only achieved a chart peak of Number 62 in the US.

Queen And Adam Lambert - First Direct Arena, Leeds - January 20th 2015 Live Review


Sceptics were silenced when Adam Lambert took to the stage with Queen in Leeds on Tuesday evening (20th January). They may be over halfway through their worldwide tour, but the group were still going strong when they performed at the First Direct Arena.

Queen And Adam Lambert - First Direct Arena, Leeds - January 20th 2015 Live Review

Lambert, although a relatively new face in the UK, is well known in the US as a solo artist following his 'American Idol' breakthrough in 2009. His suitability as Queen's lead singer has frequently been called into question but, after numerous performances with the band since 2011, there is little doubt that Lambert is a highly talented addition to the group and one both guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor wholeheartedly approve of.

As with any performer who appears alongside Queen, Lambert is living in the shadow of Freddie Mercury. Mercury is renowned as one of the greatest frontmen of all time. With his showmanship and often brash humour, he has remained prominent in the public imagination as someone who exhibited true talent and joie de vivre but tragically died too young. Purists argue that Queen died with Mercury but, with Lambert at the helm supported by the experience of May and Taylor, it is evident this belief is unfounded.
