Singer Adam Lambert shares some of the best advice he has ever received.
ackson is recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time by Guinness World Records. His contributions to music, dance, and fashion, along with his publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades. The eighth child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene along with his brothers as a member of The Jackson 5 in 1964, and began his solo career in 1971. In the early 1980s, Jackson became the dominant figure in popular music. The music videos for his songs, including those of "Beat It," "Billie Jean," and "Thriller," were credited with breaking down racial barriers and transforming the medium into an art form and promotional tool. -;;"
Have a good day
That advise came from Madonna when Adam when he visited her in her home shortly after Idol.
thanks for featuring Adam. Loving the guyliner too.
Sound advice – and beautiful eyes. Keep applying the eyeliner Adam, show 'em how it's done. Never change.
Shame on you CNN! Adam Lambert gives some great advice here and all you do is make some lame remark about eye liner. Way to marginalize! Wake up, it's 2012. This does not happen to him overseas. Only in America does the subtle or not so subtle ridicule continue after almost 4 years. This guy is a fabulous talent and fabulous humanitarian, yet the media always jumps in with some throw away remark about his look. I expected more from CNN.
Thanks for posting this! Great advice Adam.
But CNN... the eyeliner comment was uncalled for. Hmm, don't want to date myself, but most all the rockers of my era wore eyeliner as a sign of well, a rocker and/or bad boy... Nothing more, nothing less! Hope the USA media gets over it.
With the internet you can see what is going on around the world when Adam does concerts and interviews in other countries, and the USA is the country that habitually talks about the eyeliner and/or his preference. Get over it, it's 2012... Talk about the music – did you show/mention his album that came out this year – it's fantastic!
He didn't mention who gave him that advice! The answer: Madonna
Practically every rock star wears eyeliner.. Get over it CNN
