Adam Lambert: Talks about song training
With his rock 'n' roll cry, Adam Lambert has one of the wildest voices in the history of "American Idol" and the star told a famous newspaper that he figured out his sound himself.
Regarding his training as an opera singer he told a famous newspaper, “I started rejecting the proper way to sing and I started singing," "I was listening to more and more rock music and wondering, 'Wow, how does that person do that with their voice?'"
Adam said, "I met with [a vocal coach] over the summer and talked to him about it and the funny thing was, you know when I do those little, crazy, screamy notes? He's like, 'We don't really have a way to teach that. It kind of goes outside of our box.' Those notes that sound sort of like rock-scream, no one ever taught me to do," "I sort of had to teach myself. You just do it. It's just a sound you make."
It is his fans who are looking forward to November 23 release of his first post-"Idol" album, "For Your Entertainment."
Adam said, "I want to put it out there that I don't take myself all that seriously," "The dress-up supports that; the fantasy element supports it. People want to talk about whether I have rock cred, whether I'm selling out, the theatricality, the gay stuff. . . . Chill out! And just enjoy yourself. It's not that deep."
He noted that the album does have some emotional tracks, such as "Soaked," a song written by Muse. Also "Broken Open," a track that Adam himself co-wrote, is special effort on part of Adam.
He added, "Sometimes it's just, 'This is hot, I feel good, this song makes me want to go get a drink and flirt with somebody and have a good time,'" "Good energy is just as credible as the cathartic, dark, heavy [stuff]. It's just as important!"
