Adam Lambert celebrates being number one and releases new video
29 May 2012

Adam Lambert celebrated having the number one album on the Billboard charts by working harder than ever to promote the disc, Trespassing.

Lambert, 30,  kicked off the Memorial Day weekend last Friday with a performance at Jenkinson’s Pavillion in Point Pleasant, N.J., an appearance at Six Flags New England on Saturday then a television interview on Monday with MuchMusic’s New.Music.Live show in Toronto, Canada.

Lambert, who made history last week when he became the first openly gay artist to have an album top the chart in its first week of release, says his music is universal.

‘Music doesn’t have an orientation [or] a preference,’ he said in the interview for Canadian television.  ‘Music is universal, we all love to dance, we all love to feel, and we all love to sing along to stuff. [It] doesn’t matter if you’re gay, straight, black, white, girl or boy.’

On Tuesday (29 May), Lambert released a new video for Never Close Our Eyes, the second single from Trespassing. (see below).

‘I want to keep putting out singles for this album,’ he said.
