Adam Lambert on The Advocate is in Demand
There are posters all over Chelsea offering to buy pristine copies of the new issue of The Advocate with Adam Lambert on the cover. This person is willing to pay up to $20 in fact for each issue. No disrespect meant to anyone, but if I am paying $20 for a magazine, I’d better open the centerfold and see a baggie of cocaine fall out. And not that shit that college students are cooking up in the bathtub either. You know exactly what I am talking about on all these levels too, so don’t give me that look. I’m just keepin’ it real folks.

Adam Lambert and G
On July 14, 2011, I was at the Highline Ballroom in New York seeing the always amazing Nikka Costa perform. I was kickin’ it in the VIP section when I looked to my right and saw that Adam Lambert and his friends were standing inches from me. Bonus! If you are a new reader to According2g, you’ll see on the “Encounters with G” section that amazing experiences like this one happen to me all the time. Bookmark the site and check it daily – you never know what kind of crazy things I’ll get up to! But I digress… All of us danced all night long to Nikka’s music, which is one of the closest things you can have to a religious experience, according2g. Nikka’s got the soul, Nikka’s got the funk and she’s an electrifying performer. Adam Lambert, whose hair is working it in ways I can’t even describe in words, was so cool when we chatted. As he was with friends, I didn’t monopolize too much of his time, but as you can see above, he was cool enough to pose for this really cool photo as you can see above. Adam is working on his 2nd album and I am hoping there’s a Nikka Costa collaboration on it. Fingers crossed! Thanks again Adam. Hope you had as good a time as I had!

I’m just going to say it – I think Nikka Costa is one of the best live performers around. Since her 2001 album “Everybody Got Their Something” was released, I’ve seen Nikka live at least 10 times in multiple cities and every time, she is amazing! It was no different when she kicked New York’s ass on July 14, 2011 at the Highline Ballroom. If you’ve never heard her music, you must remedy that immediately! She packs the funk of James Brown and has the soul of Janis Joplin. Nikka hit the stage around 9:15 PM and delivered the goods for nearly 2 hours. She played an even mix of tracks off her latest 3 albums and also included songs from her new EP “Pro*Whoa!”
You’ll be seeing a video of “Push and Pull,” coming soon, so stay tuned – you won’t want to miss it. Seeing that song performed is akin to a musical religious experience for me. She hits the notes and I think the song is one of the most beautiful tracks of the new millennium. For most bands, a song of that magnitude would be the closing number, but not for Nikka Costa. She sandwiched it in a powerful run of songs that included the new song “Pro*Whoa!,” “Like A Feather” (which had everyone in the crowd clapping along during the chorus), the new song “Nylons in a Rip,” and “Can’tneverdidnothing.” Nikka played percussion for a little bit, engaged the audience (which included Adam Lambert in attendance) with sing-a-longs and even got down on her knees to plead on the funk!
You do not want to miss Nikka Costa when she comes to your town! She’s got funk that’ll kick your butt and have you begging for more. Her new EP “Pro*Whoa!” is available online and for the Youtubers out there, she’s launched a channel called “Nikka’s Box,” where she uploads exclusive performances that sometimes feature special guests. After the show was over, Nikka signed copies of “Pro*Whoa!” and I think it’s safe to say, everyone in attendance danced away into the night with a smile on their face.

Adam Lambert - For Your Entertainment: Out now!
Now that Adam Lambert’s cd has been out for a few days, what’s the verdict? Do you love it? Do you hate it? He’s certainly caused controversy in the last week. Not because he does anything risque’, but because the world is full of crashing bores. Come on people! In 2010, kissing a guy on TV makes headlines? If you want to make it interesting, let’s see some priests getting it on with each other. Perhaps a reality TV show called “How Many Beers?” where they test how many beers it takes for a straight guy to not care if a gay guy blows him. I’ll bet the magic number is 7.
I got off topic. Tell me what you think of Adam Lambert’s cd. I haven’t had the pleasure to hear it yet. I’m trying to make this site as interactive as possible. If you don’t reply to this thread, you only have yourselves to blame.
