Here’s what’s up in LambertLand today:



1
Spotted! Someone got a haircut!!! Short, but the mullet’s still there!

Alex Lambert New Haircut

Thanks to fan Todd Bower, who ran into Alex and got him to snap the pic. Todd says: “Me & @TrueAlexLambert from A.I. season 9. He was my favorite. Sad he didn’t get it but he’s doing GREAT things now.”

Hmmm, great things, huh? Wonder what the haircut is for… looks professional… photoshoot anyone?!? Also wonder how many stylists had to hold Alex down to make him submit to that short a cut… suddenly the gang of pigeons tweet – see previous post – makes more sense!

Also thanks to Katherine for spotting the tweet!

  1. Kassandra: Ack! Snuffles! That thing you’ve been saying needs to happen might be happening. Haha you really should be following me on Twitter ;) Need to pass it by you…  

    What’s your twitter account?

  2. Is this about the Akon thing? Because that would RULE!!

    Has Akon’s new album come out yet? I’m reading it was delayed until 2011.

  3. I’m pretty sure, I think, I’m almost positive that Sebastian is telling the truth about Akon and Alex jamming together…I mean right? That’s seriously really cool. :cool:

  4. OK Akon’s new album is set to drop February 21st.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akonic

    I wonder if Akon and Alex will do a track together. He could always feature Alex on a re-mix of one of his songs.

  5. Akon is a Universal artist. :wink:

  6. Molly: Akon is a Universal artist. :wink:   

    An INTERSCOPE artist! :whistle:

  7. Interscope is owned by Universal. :whistle:

    And I believe Akon is Universal and Akon’s self-made record label (Kon Live) is Interscope.

  8. Molly: Interscope is owned by Universal.
    And I believe Akon is Universal and Akon’s self-made record label (Kon Live) is Interscope.  

    Exacttly! It would ROCK if Alex was with the Interscope family. Because they totes rule the radio waves these days.

  9. Just look at all those possible collabos! My mouth is watering!

  10. snuffles: I wonder if Akon and Alex will do a track together.He could always feature Alex on a re-mix of one of his songs.  

    Remember when Alex sang Mr. Lonely in the Dream House. Replace Alvin the Chipmunk with Alex’s voice. Might I ask…Why is there a chipmunk in this song? So weird!!

    Yeah! what’s with the chipmunk?

    I’m not sure I’m following you; but that’s an old song. Maybe Akon will feature Alex is a re-mix of whatever his next single is gonna be.

  13. Kassandra: Haha news travels fast   

    Yes it does, ha ha. That’s what twitter is for, right?

  14. Since we’re “dreaming” here. How about Akon and Alex do a re-mix of DWMEO for American Idol!! :w00t:

    ETA: No, wait, wait, wait

    THIS is what they’re re-mixing

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQlIhraqL7o

  15. snuffles: Since we’re “dreaming” here.How about Akon and Alex do a re-mix of DWMEO for American Idol!!   

    Just getting excited here. I don’t know anything about music @Snuffles. Yes a re-mix of DWMEO would be ideal!!!

    ETA: IJHS Ha ha Ha… Let’s hope not, but sooo funny!

  16. Lauren: Remember when Alex sang Mr. Lonely in the Dream House. Replace Alvin the Chipmunk with Alex’s voice. Might I ask…Why is there a chipmunk in this song? So weird!!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EEW-9NDM5k  (Reply)

    Lauren, I really like that song! I’m not into much rap, but I like that one. I hope your guess is right. That would be so cool.

  17. @Molly-that list is a good start, but its just the tip …with UMG, you have not just the Universal Records label,that you posted, but also, artists from- Def Jam, Island, A&M, Geffen, Polydor, Mercury, Interscope,and more…so a ton more potential collabs… :cool:

    Yup, you’re right. I just want some Alex music period!! :tongue:

  19. The good thing is with each of the Universal labels, you have seasoned veterans, ..they can give Alex very helpful advice; For ex.,Gaga, at, Interscope, slugged it out the hard way, could be a valuable mentor… :cool:

  20. I have nothing interesting to add but I just got home and reading all this stuff is getting me very EXCITED!!! :w00t:

  21. I hope Alex can do something like this with Akon

    KUSH – Dr. Dre featuring Snoop Dogg and Akon

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuJDaOVz2qY

  22. I missed all the speculating this afternoon/evening! Now I’m gonna have to go find the tweet that Seb mentioned that’s got you guys all fired up! To be honest, I just can’t see Akon and Alex collaborating on something. For no other reason than I’m afraid the uniqueness of both their voices might not work *together*. Although it’s awesome just to think about!

    I do think his tweet today about being a “singer” is really telling. Something important happened yesterday, I’m sure of it. (And not just that he got laid {again}, @Snuffles! LOL)

  23. @Diane – Personally I think Alex’s tweet was directly related to getting to work with Akon. I could see that being a really big deal for him.

    ETA: Let me put this in perspective. Akon signed Lady Gaga and helped put her on the map.

  24. @Diane- I think its safe to assume Alex is partying it up 2NITE!!!!

  25. You guys have prolly seen this,but Sebastian’s later tweet is the most telling:
    ‘Oh and Alex Lambert bang bang bang LOL’
    Its like when Sam Larsen said he wanted to kill Justin Bieber ,jokingly(as Sam was a subscriber to Justin’s private Youtube channel),when Justin announced he’d signed with Def Jam…Its a typical musician’s reaction to another with HUGE news.. :cool:

  26. @Snuffles, OK I gotcha. Akon is *more* than a potential collaborator. He’s a star maker! Thanks for the crumb, Sebastian. Wheeeeeeeeee!

    ETA: But Alex loves to talk smack about The Biebs. I would think he’d be more careful if they were on the same label, no?
    ETAA: @alleycatfan, Double Wheeeeeee!

  27. alleycatfan: You guys have prolly seen this,but Sebastian’s later tweet is the most telling:

    I’m glad you mentioned Sebastian’s “bang bang bang” tweet. I was kind of thinking it might have meant something like that. Kinda like WOW! Thanks!!

    I know It’s kinda late but whoever is up needs to go listen to @jessiejofficial right now! She’s bouta be the next big star!

    I wonder if Alex was on here and saw my post about Jessie J. :ninja:

  29. And label is she with???

    from Jessie J.’s bio-

    ‘Now, Jessie’s signed worldwide to Universal Music Group. In the US, she inked a deal with Lava/Universal Republic Records and Island Records in the UK. “I feel like my album is an example of what exists in the world of music right now. It’s like my album is an iPod… it’s like when you go clubbing these days, you don’t have a pop room and a separate R&B room, they’re all together. People just appreciate great music…”‘

    http://jessiejofficial.com/index.php
    Check her out again. She’s infectious.

    Scratch all that about Universal and if he read it here @Snuffles. Actually I think that he was just reading Adam Lambert’s twitter timeline last night because one of Adam’s most recent tweets was…”Jessie J-Do It Like a Dude- can’t get it out of my head. Sick track.”

    Last night Alex tweeted to Adam “Do it like a bruva!”, which are some of the lyrics of the song and then Alex tweeted about Jessie J. being the next big star

    Actually things are simpler than they appear sometimes. :wink:

    Happy Birthday Cathy! Have a great day and I hope your birthday wish comes true! ;)

  31. Don’t know how many of you are Last.fm members, but it’s a great tool to keep track of Alex’s growing popularity! Even though his weekly plays have gone down in the last few months, he’s still gaining new listeners every week :) He had 2,802 listeners when they last updated his profile. Check it out: http://www.last.fm/music/Alex+Lambert

    For those of you who don’t know, Last.fm is basically a website through which you can either listen to music (by subscribing and listening to their radio) or just keep track of what you’re listening to. You can “scrobble” songs from your computer/iPod/phone, and Last.fm will keep track of what sort of music you listen to & which artists are similar to each other. I’m pretty addicted to it!

  32. Thanks, Lauren. I hope my birthday wish comes true, too!! haha

  33. holy Akon, I really hope Sebastian isn’t messing with us about Ak & Al “jamming!” At first, I thought he was just referring to passing Akon in the Mr. Twitter rankings.

    Has anyone asked Alex about Akon yet? (I’m not a twitterer)
    I ask because I’ve noticed that recently, when fans straight-up ask Alex about stuff like this (which doesn’t happen a lot for some odd reason?!) he’s given straight-up answers–instead of his old “maybe (wink face)” or changing the topic with a completely random response haha. (recent tweets he’s answered: “When is your album coming out?”, “Do you have a record deal (yes or no answer)?”, “R u gonna be in the studio today?”)

  34. Cathy: Thanks, Lauren. I hope my birthday wish comes true, too!! haha  (Reply)

    Hey Cathy, have a great great birthday, I hope your birthday wish comes true tooooo!!!! :w00t:

  35. I just listened to Jessie J – can I say AWESOME!! Loved the Do It Like A Dude song, but I loved her singing in the NYC subway! The UK has really got it with their ‘real’ singers “making” it! Here’s hoping the U.S. can take a cue from the Brits.

  36. @lauren..this is totally off subject, but did Alex ever mention that he picked up his Christmas present from 19?? Maybe I just missed it, I was wondering if he enjoyed it.

  37. Thanks @Matilda for the Last.fm link…I was glad to see Alex had more views and listeners than anyone on Idol, that placed 3 thru 9 last year -the others currently have a major label record out. But I am constantly amazed at how many supporters there are of Didi Benami, who has wayyy more listeners than anyone in the top ten, save Lee and Crystal…She performed just as well when I checked her numbers on iheartadio, as they have a similar Idol page; and her Youtube numbers on David Letterman are HUGE,and she has other high totals…Is it that she has a Huge number of Israeli fans?, she’s a very pretty girl- I have always been stumped by Didi’s popularity…

    Totally agree Marianne! Britain’s got talent! Haha, she’s awesome :biggrin:
