Peace, Love & Adam Always,
Thursday, January 28, 2010
At some point in our lives we all want to break free. Free as a child to just go out and play and not have to do chores. Free as a teen to get our drivers license and break free to drive around with our friends. Free to turn 18 and finally be an adult. Free to be 21 and not be carded. Free to fall in love, free to have sex, free to come out, free, free, free!
As we then become mature, upstanding, tax paying adults… we yearn to break free from the daily grind. Free from our spouse asking if you did what THEY wanted. To break free for just 30 minutes of free time alone from screaming children or a bitching boss or co-workers. Oh, how we long to break free.
And Along Came Adam…
Suddenly, we feel free. We are breaking free. We find the time. We MAKE the time and all because of Adam Lambert. Adam has empowered all of us to break free in so many ways and yet, the more free we become because of him… the less freedom he now has and now Adam longs to break free. Maybe just for that 30 minutes we all once wished for; Adam has now given us.
Oh, The Price Of Fame…
Is it too great, too much to ask for some privacy? We all say no but yet we all know if we saw Adam in a store or a restaurant, it would take every fiber of our very being not to go up to him… even very politely. But yet, Adam still loves all of it. Still longs to be with all of us and still says, don’t leave me alone. He may long to break free but he takes it all in true stride and remains the beautiful, humble man that he is. That sweet young man running down the street with a smile on his face and breaking free to go sing in Hollywood for what would change his entire life.
We are now breaking free with Adam, we all take the time, we all get up and “strut”, we all glam it up and it’s all because of Adam. We still at times, along with Adam, may long to break free. But it is the moments we are free that we now cherish with Adam and love him more for it.
I hope you will enjoy this music video I made, that goes along with my blog. For the BEST QUALITY Viewing... please watch it on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIEtVWrh8VcYouTube. Thanks!
Peace, Love & Adam Always,
THIS BLOG IS DEDICATED TO ADAM LAMBERT-HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME BREAK FREE! MUCH LOVE ~ SEAN
Life is a Journey, not a destination… Adam is on the Journey of his life right now and we are lucky enough to be a part of it. I feel SO lucky to have found him and to be a part of all of this.
Growing up I was not able to accept myself. Not able to accept that I am gay. I will one day open up more about that, but am not ready to go there yet. However, I will simply say that as a teen I was in complete denial of the fact that I was gay and never allowed myself to have a “crush” on any “Male Star”. I now find through Adam, I am able to have that experience and know what it is like to be on this journey of being a “fan”. I wait in excitement for the next showing of Adam. For any little Tweet to come from him. To hope he is happy, and worry that he is losing too much weight, but hope he is eating well. MY GOD… I have turned into his beautiful Jewish Mother! When did that happen? LOL! I guess the more we fall in love with Adam the more we care about his well-being.
As I look at all of you… these beautiful women adoring Adam, I see many of you as my friends and my sisters and I feel in my heart that so many of you are gay men trapped in women’s bodies and Adam triggered that in you. That is YOUR Journey. To allow the gay man in all of you to come out and be celebrated – don’t be afraid to hide it. Let that PRIDE show and I don’t care if you are 15 or 105… Adam brings out that teen in all of us again and we are on the Journey with him! We have no destination, we are just going to celebrate it everyday. We ARE going to “Strut” and enjoy every moment, cry every tear of joy for Adam or sorrow when we see his pain and together… this Journey will forever bond us and we will be grateful to Adam Lambert for taking us along for the ride.
Peace, Love & Adam Always,
PS: This blog is dedicated to Azure, Jen, Julie and Kelly. Thank you for helping me and believing in me. I love you.
@rickey I come in peace. LOL I know many are upset by what you said about @adamlambert . But I'm not and here is why.......
First of all, my name is Sean. I know many people are on the attack right now at you and what you said about and showed of @adamlambert. I hope you will give me the chance to just talk to you. I don't plan on attacking you. I understand why you posted the pictures in HD of Adam and said what you did.
Sometimes our own pain and jealously can come out in many ways. Maybe you are jealous of Adam or maybe you just wanted some attention? I don’t know. Only you can answer that. But what I do know… Adam Lambert is beautiful and a very handsome man. His beauty comes from the inside and shows through on the outside. Adam teaches about Love and Light… he shows that in all he does. What you have done is just the opposite. You have shown the hate and darkness of a human. I believe you are better then that. At least I hope you are.
Yes, Adam has some marks on his face from when he was a teen. Who doesn’t? LOL I know I do. We all have scars... some show on the outside, some on the inside. Those who have them on the inside sometimes are very insecure people that have to point out other peoples visible scars. Is that what you were trying to accomplish today... to make yourself feel better by trying to hurt Adam? I promise, it did not work. Adam is MUCH stronger then that and has more self-esteem then you can imagine.
I’m sorry you felt you had to do this. I’m sorry you are a person in such pain and have such insecurities. I wish you the best though and hope that you know, I don’t hate you, I’m not even mad at you. I just feel sorry for you.
Peace, Love & Adam Always,
To Certain @adamlambert FANS: I'm about to give you a very hard pill to swallow. Ready? CHILL THE FUCK OUT!!!
Before you all flip out… these are MY opinions and MINE ONLY. But please do read on. Do you not get that Adam is human? He has feeling, he gets pissed off. He may express that in a tweet. It’s not “humor”. So many of you are clueless with your “ohhh that’s just Adam being Adam.” How do you know? You don’t know Adam! And sorry but I don’t think so in my opinion; I think he was pissed off at rumors and bullshit tweets about him and a woman being together… A WOMAN! Give me a fucking break!
Let’s define “FAN”:
Root word Latin fanaticus inspired by a deity, frenzied, from fanum temple. Fanatic: marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion.
— fa•nat•i•cal•ly adverb
— fa•nat•i•cal•ness noun
Adam loves people who genuinely love and care for him. Fans I believe are less and less appealing. Sure, we all say we are “FANS” but when we really break it down.... do we want to be put in that cluster of fuck ups? NOT ME? Take for example today…….
Radio Station Personality and DJ, Larry Flick, from Sirius Radio OutQ made a statement about fans hurting a singer’s career because they were too over the top about him and overzealous (I paraphrase). Mr. Flick was NOT, I repeat NOT talking about Adam Lambert or his fans but then what transpired... well, ironically proved Mr. Flick right. Mr. Flick struck a nerve with some Lambert fans because he was bombarded with tweets of rudeness and child like stupidity that well, was a complete embarrassment to Adam Lambert to the point where Adam had to tweet Mr. Flick and APOLOGIZE for his OWN FANS. How pathetic and sad is that. Mr. Flick has been one of Adam’s supporters from day one, playing his music when no one else would. HOW DARE YOU BITE HIS HAND!!!!
If you honestly don’t think at that point Adam was not happy, then you’re an idiot and you need a wake up call. Guess what… this is it.
WAKE UP!!! Adam is a human being. He is a man with feelings, he gets upset, and he gets embarrassed. Sure he stays positive but he’s not Jesus Christ for fucks sake… I’d think not since he’s Jewish! LMAO (Yes, I'm being ironic. I know Christ was born Jewish! LOL)
Now here is some honey to slide that pill down with… Adam does love all his “Fans” (cringe I hate that word) But he has said time and time again he would not be where he is with out all of you… all of us. All I ask is that before you FLIP OUT and tweet that nasty tweet… take a deep breath… count to 10 and say… is this what Adam would really want me to do? I can pretty much tell you….the answer is… NO.
Peace, Love & Adam Always,
I know many don't understand..... I also know there are many who do understand but....... as a man, who is gay..... I found myself at first like any other fan, just happy and excited to see Adam on Oprah. SO EXCITED! LOL I was counting down the minutes with all of you. LOL
As the show started and my Husband, Jake, came home. We sat on the couch together and watched. We listened as Adam talked so eloquently and self-aware as he always does. So funny with humor and his own pure sweet and kind heart.
Jake was holding my hand and then lifted it up and kissed it during a commercial. I laughed and said, what’s that for? He said, “because you look so innocent and sweet with that huge smile on your face, waiting for the commercials to be over with and Adam to be back on.” LOL As Adam came back on and started to sing WWFM………..something came over me. Tears started to stream down my face, I felt such pride as I saw this man who has never lied, never hidden the fact of who he is, never tried to say, ‘oh it was just a joke’ or some other bullshit and so many before him have done. He was honest and open and he told the world, yes “I’m Gay” and so what? Deal with it! And there he was………on Oprah………OPRAH!!!!!!!!! The woman is a fucking Icon to THE WORLD and she was adoring him. SINGING ALONG with Adam word for word.
Oprah is right, Adam IS paving the way. I know he didn’t choose it. I know he may not have wanted it. But he is doing it and I thank him and love him for it even more………..if that’s possible. LOL
I have no doubt……….Adam is the key. He is the one. He will change and open minds and hearts. I know that is a lot to put on one man but the beauty of it………Adam doesn’t have to do anything extra or special………..Adam just has to be Adam and the rest just falls into place.
What an amazing day. What a beautiful day. What an amazing and beautiful man Adam Lambert is from the inside out.
My Heart Is Full.
Peace, Love & Adam Always,
On her radio show, Dr Laura Schlesinger said that, as an observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The following response is an open letter to Dr. Laura, penned by a US resident, which was posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:
Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination... End of debate. Its in the Bible - end of argument!
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how best to follow them.
1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighbouring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is, my neighbours. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
5. I have a neighbour who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2. Clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there 'degrees' of abomination?
7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wriggle room here?
8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.
Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
Your adoring fan,

@adamlambert FINALLY, a way to write you and not have it in just 140 words or less. LOL Now I dont know what to say. HAha OK, seriously........first, I doubt you will ever even see this. I mean, you have a million tweets come into you from millions of girls every day. I'm just one dude that's out in a sea of many trying to say thank you and you don't owe me anything.
I didn't know you from AI. I actually didn't know you until the AMA's. Yep. And when I first saw you I was like WTF!!!!! LOL But then my husband Jake said, why are you freaking out and I realized, it was because you were able to express yourself so freely, with no apologies. That scared the hell out of me because after being in the closet for so long and being told I was a freak, I didn’t belong, the world hates me......to see a man stand up there and say, this is who I am and fuck you if you don't like it. Was the most fucking amazing thing I had ever seen, Adam. I realized my fear was actually adoration and the next day my husband bought your CD for me. LOL He’s a good man.
Since then it’s been complete craziness for you I know and I have watched you handle yourself with such grace and confidence and true self awareness. At times I have been in awe of you and looking at your parents, thinking……..why couldn’t I have had parents like that!! LOL They obviously did an amazing job raising you. But today I saw the pain in your WWFM video and it hurt and I’m sorry for your pain and hurt.
In closing, yes I’m wrapping it up LOL, I would just like to thank you for you being you. In my past tweets to you I’d always just say UBU Adam but, you always have been and I know you always will be and for that, I thank you. I thank you for the man that you are and that man that you are becoming. And most of all for sharing yourself and your talent with the world. You fill up my heart along with so many others. What a beautiful gift that is. Thank you.
Respectfully and With Peace & Love,
PS: I hope you have a wonderful and very Happy Birthday on the 29th.
