Adam Lambert notes: airplay, honors, and fighting a cause

What’s happening now?

There’s a lot to touch on at the moment in the world of Adam Lambert, and hopefully we will have the opportunity to fit all of in the span of this one post.

Airplay update

We will begin with a brief look at what is happening on the charts. When it comes to “Whataya Want From Me,” the track dropped down to 1,643 spins this week just after cracking the 1,700 mark recently — which helps to show once again that the song seems to be perpetually floating in the 1,600-1,750 at the moment.

Will this change? It’s not likely until Adam’s new single is released, which will happen next month at the earliest.

A new honor

First, it was Equality California that showed Adam some love earlier this year — and now, PFLAG (Parents, Families, and Friends of Gay Lesbians) has chosen to do the same thing. Adam along with his mother Leila received the honor recently, and he made the following comment about seeing his mom get some due recognition:

“I really came here for my mom. Because she got so excited about PFLAG and told me about the organization and I said that’s great, I’m glad you’re getting involved. She told me about the work that you guys do…It’s really exciting to know that there are people that help support the parents as well, because it is a tough thing.”

You can check out an extended video of the honor below.

The Southwest controversy

While this news does not directly impact Adam, it is notable if for no other reason than that he is connected to one of the parties involved — in addition to the fact that he retweeted some of her messages online.

On Monday, Leisha Hailey (of “The L Word” and the group Uh Huh Her) expressed her anger online at being kicked off of a Southwest Airlines flight for “kissing” another woman. If you remember, Hailey’s bandmate Camila Grey was the keyboardist Adam used for the Glam Nation Tour, and they obviously remain close.

As for Southwest’s response to this incident, they merely posted in a statement online that some passengers felt their kissing was “excessive” — and that the conversation was better suited for “the ground” after the parties involved became upset. (The company did issue a sort of apology, but it was merely for “falling short” of some expectations rather than addressing it to anyone in particular.)

As always, stay tuned for more Adam news!
