‘American Idol’ notes: Adam Lambert, Phillip Phillips, and Casey Abrams

Another new interview!

We are in the midst of a pretty slow period in the world of “American Idol,” but we have a few more stories to share from the world of the show Wednesday night.

Another new Adam Lambert interview – Thanks to his recent stay in the United Kingdom, there are all sorts of Adam Lambert stories coming out all over the internet.

The latest one? An interview with the BBC where he opens up not just about his sexuality, but also making new music and the road to being a superstar. The best line in this interview is when he even talks positively about his time working on a cruise ship — which is something that he actually was able to learn from:

“[One of the benefits was] learning how to perform for a geriatric audience that’s falling asleep but it can also feel like the most lovely holiday at your grandparents house.”

While it may be an extreme example, you see this sort of attitude from Adam anytime he walks on stage — whether you are a devoted fan or someone who has never heard of him, he still wants to entertain you.

Phillip Phillips’ family faces a robbery – Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks to being on TV is that you instantly become a target — and the reigning champ’s family is experiencing just that.

According to TMZ, the pawn shop run by Phillip’s parents was robbed this week, and around $4,000 was ultimately stolen — including the entire cash register. Phillip’s family has been looking to sell the store, but the celebrity associated with it is hardly going to help when it comes to negotiations.

Another new Casey Abrams song – Casey Abrams’ self-titled debut is coming out on June 26, but before that even happens you can take advantage of another opportunity to check out a performance from him.

The song below is entitled “Blame It On Me,” and it is another lyrical gem from an album that looks to be stuffed full of catchy hooks and strong musicality.

You can buy two of Casey’s new singles over at this link, and stay tuned — we are going to have more on the album as we inch closer to its release.
