Lots to get through today!
Alex Lambert tees
First, Jessica Bongiorno (otherwise known as the woman who saaaaaaved Alex Lambert), has tweeted that she will be designing a special Alex Lambert T-shirt! The shirt will no doubt be fabulous since Jessica has plenty of experience designing for her own T-shirt line, Britees. Now you know what to put on your Christmas wish list!
Second, Alex tweeted on Friday that he was writing with regular collaborators DEEKAY along with Raphael Saadiq (who has produced songs for artists including Joss Stone and Alex’s fave, John Legend). It will be interesting to see what old-school R&B man Saadiq brings to DEEKAY’s ultra-pop sound. Alex then tweeted on Saturday: “In the cave once again for probably the craziest session I’ve ever had…”. We’re guessing that would be a session at DEEKAY’s recording studio, laying down a demo track for the song they just wrote? Whatever the case, it’s good to hear that Alex is writing – more confirmation for the worriers among us that 19 Entertainment is still invested in him, regardless of the fate of ‘If I Can Dream’.
Victory is… not ours
On the heels of this good news, a bit of bad: the results of the reality TV star tournament conducted by D Magazine (a magazine for the Dallas, Texas, area) are in, with Alex receiving 49% of votes compared to Tim Urban’s 51%. Now sure, it would have been nice to see those numbers reversed, but we think 49% is pretty darn respectable considering that Tim has had way more exposure than Alex (6 more weeks than him on Idol in front of an audience of millions, plus the recent Idol tour), so congratulations Alex and good job voting guys! At the very least, we showed D Magazine that Alex Lambert is not someone to be written off as quickly as they did in their lame excuse of a bio on him (research, D Magazine, research!).
Libras and Lambert?
On to a fun factoid: it seems, from the spate of birthdays we’ve been having recently, that an unusually high proportion of Alex Lambert fans are Libras – including Ms. J. Bongiorno herself and our very own admin, GollyMolly! Could there be a cosmic connection between Libras and Alex Lambert, drawing people of that sign to him? Well, since Alex’s birthday is on December 10th (psst… that’s 2 months from now for those who want to send or organize something), he’s a Sagittarius… and a quick search reveals that indeed, Libra and Sagittarius are an excellent match! According to eAstrology.com: “Libra and Sagittarius, Air and Fire. An excellent combination… You both like parties and making new friends. You communicate very easily and you have much energy: this is a perfect match.”
