Oh, the odd celebrity of Adam Lambert. The runner-up on season 8 of American Idol has gone on to sell over 4 million records world wide. A couple dozen listeners of local radio station i93 were treated to an up close and personal set with Lambert at the Hard Rock Cafe yesterday. He answered a couple questions, sang a couple songs, and grabbed a few pictures before being hustled off, leaving loving, devoted fans in his wake. Here's what you missed.

Adam Lambert is an extremely nice guy, respectful, funny and a great sport. I suggest we follow his lead and move past a poor choice of words. I appreciate all articles that can appreciate Adam's vocal ability and showmanship. He never has a bad word to say about anyone and generously compliments other artists. We are loyal and supportive of Adam not only for his undeniable talent, but for his beautiful,kind spirit to all people, regardless of age,race,religion and gender. He doesn't have an arrogant bone in his body and does much for charity, quietly and unselfishly. Elvis had fans of all ages, many of which were older women. Adam has that same connectability and honesty that is very attractive and will serve him well. I just want to enjoy the magnificent gifts he shares and the positive energy that surrounds him. Peace y'all..

Adam's fans are all genders and sexual orientations, all races and ethnic groups and nationalities, etc... So while I appreciate the photos and the mention... I do agree with quite a few other women here that your choice of description " his odd celebrity" was VERY ODD, indeed.And TODAY is March 8th and you have NOT "removed it" as you said you would. Shame on you on so many levels.

Fans of Adam Lambert include:  Brian May and Roger Taylor of QUEEN (who he's fronting at a couple of "small" gigs this year, btw - Knebworth in England? yeah...also 1 or 2 in Moscow), also Meatloaf, Slash, Elton John, and many others, and his fanbase consists of teens to men & women in their 80's - this is because he is uber-talented, and not only that, but he's extremely interesting. Regardless, everyone should check out a live show of Adam's whenever they can, because he's brilliant live and puts on the best shows.

I am a "GRambert" and a Glambert; and yes old enough to be Adam's mother, almost old enough to be his grandmother; if Adam couldn't sing, I wouldn't have been there yesterday; and I am a retired professional woman, by the way with a graduate degree so think I have discerning taste.  Adam also happens to be funny, smart, caring, professional and yes, not hard to look at.  BUT it is his voice which makes me want to hear him again; a professor of music analyzed his voice a few years back and said he had very unusual range; can span many octaves, and freely move back & forth.  Yesterday the "emcee" said, "What do you think of (long pause as he struggled with whether to say having older women as fans),,,,,your fans and waved at us.  Adam knew exactly what he meant as did we.  Adam said I have fans of all ages and I love my fans....they have my back."  Smart man.

Someone that writes..doesn't think..then has to delete after making a fool of himself.

this article sounds like something a jealous straight man would write... Adam can't help that he's drop dead gorgeous.. he can't help that he attracts BOTH sexes. Even though he's into men.. he can still get the girls.... haha... that's gotta get your panties in a knot.

Thanks for the article and pics...but hausfrau is condescending and insulting.  Adam fans are highly educated, accomplished women and we damn well know a put down when we read it. Appreciate your article and you covering Adam hopeful the next time you do so it is with more respect to his fans.

Hausfraus? Really? Oh well, doesn't matter. Adam loves ALL his fans.

It's very misogynistic of you to assume that because a lot of women like him he's somehow inferior to an artist who is worshipped by mainly men. Are you really saying that womens taste is inferior to mens because that is what it sounds like.Adam has a large percentage of highly educated and professional people who are fans of his who just happen to be women.I don't understand the prejudice against older women especially as opposed to teenagers. We are better educated and have experienced more music both live and on record first hand. If I was an artist I would be more complemented to be followed by someone who has attended many concerts and experienced the greats in their prime first hand than by some teen who has only watched videos of the latest craze on TV.

Urban Dictionary definition of Haufraus: Stupid fat ugly older woman who posts non-stop on message boards about old lady topics, such as hummus recipes and their current object of lust. ... WTAF! You definitely don't deserve the magnificient Adam Lambert in your presence. I'm disgusted with you.. #HOWRUDE!!!

Exactly, MattL1. No one but the rabid cyberfans even care about Adam Lambert at this point. Was the station inundated with screaming fans outside begging for a glimpse of their star? No. A dozen or so middle aged ladies came to see him and that homely fellow on guitar. His fans are sounding more and more like Clay Aiken fans.

You are not a fan of Adam's.. yet you keep coming back to this article and posting. What does that say about you? Loser?  I'd say. I'd bet money you're a middle-aged white guy who in your wildest dreams.. would kill to look like Adam .. for one night.

I was the one who took the pictures and sent in both the pictures and the original wording.  You can direct any complaints to me.  Adam seemed like a really nice guy, and yes, the folks there to see him were primarily middle aged women...and they were thrilled to see him...Flag

It was copy forwarded to me by the photographer, and after mulling over that choice of words, I have removed it. DC9 means no disrespect to Adam Lambert loyal fans.

You betcha celebrities like Gaga and JB have mainly young teens as followers/fans and that age group is very fickle. They love ya today and tomorrow they forgot your name. So who would a celebrity want as a fan base I'd have to think they would want the fan base Adam has. He loves all of his fans from age 2 to 90 and remember middle age women have the buying power not the teens. That is why Gaga sales aren't as high now. She still sells because the teens parents buy them itune cards just hand over their credit cards. Some of these parents buy Adam's music.

No sorry Mike this is the definition of "Hausfraus" = Urban Dictionary definition of Haufraus: Stupid fat ugly older woman who posts non-stop on 

message boards about old lady topics, such as hummus recipes and their current object of lust. .....google is available if u would like to check it! Thank you & Have A God Day

the hausfrau was referring to the women that were there to see Adam it is the German word for housewife.

Adam is the nicest of guys.. and why does age even matter enough to be mentioned.. Adam loves all his fans young and old, He says age doesn't matter. Why is it so interesting that a middle aged women might like his incredible voice and beautiful soul.. Adam has lots of teen fans too ..just so you know :(

Sherry

Mike this is exactly what I knew you meant but used hausfrau in it's place. I think you did it again saying primarily middle aged women were there. How do you know how old these women are? Do u know them personally? Another ageist and sexist remark.

Really? Bieber, Gaga and Madonna all have small armies of predominantly middle aged woman as their fanbases? I did not know that.

I'd love to keep chatting with you but your excessive use of punctuation one moment and then total lack of it the next is rather unsettling to me. Good day!

then you don't know Bieber's Gaga's or Madonna's fan bases very well do you

I somehow think I just walked into some fan bubble. I don't know what any of that means. Sorry. Just making an observation of how often this sort of fan base happens to former American Idol stars.

I don't even know why a reference needed to be made about the age of the audience to begin with. And to make a direct correlation to the so called odd celebrityhood of Adam Lambert--I guess you thought it would go unnoticed---foolish man!

Middle aged means "young" to me......:)
