Adam Lambert, Meet Your Greatest Fan FROM The Greatest Generation...

`

Meet Isabel…





I had the opportunity to have a Q&A with Isabel and her daughter Joy. The following is the transcript of her replies to my questions and with her consent to share with all of you.

Hello Isabel,

As you know my name is Sean. I have tweeted with your daughter Joy to have this Q&A set up. Thank you for taking the time to answer some questions for me today. You are a true Adam Lambert Fan Favorite and many of us (if not all) absolutely love you.

[Isabel:] Well thank you, I am truly overwhelmed and flabbergasted by the response to my birthday video to Adam. Thank you all so much!


So a few questions that I have:

• What year where you born and where? I'm guessing 1920, yes?

[Isabel:] Yes, I was born in October of 1920, in Norway, Europe. Our family came over to the United States on a ship when I was 9 yrs. old. I've visited there about 15-20 yrs. ago, but have always lived here in Wisconsin. I still do have close relatives there.


• For 89 years young you have the spirit of a teen, how do you stay so young and vibrant?

[Isabel:] I guess by being optimistic and looking on the bright side of life. I keep myself busy with cooking and baking, cleaning my own apartment, doing my own shopping, and I try to keep my health my first priority. This, along with playing cards 3-4 times per week, listening to music, and having a good sense of humor...I love a good joke or laugh! Dirty or not! LOL All of this keeps my mind sharp.


• You’ve seen it all from Elvis, to the Beatles, to Lennon, to Freddie Mercury/Queen, to Michael Jackson, to well you name it, you’ve seen them all…. and yet you said Adam had the best voice? That’s pretty amazing. So what is it about Adam’s voice and presence that beats out all of the rest for you?

[Isabel:] His vocal range is sooo great, he can hold notes for a very long time, and does it so beautifully, and with such control. He's filled with charisma. When he performs on stage he's just fantastic and electrifying, and you can't keep your eyes off him! I just adore him!


• Other then Adam, what are some of your other fun hobbies to do?

[Isabel:] I love music, so I play my keyboard by ear. Music has been a huge part of our family for years. My mother had a beautiful soprano voice. 'Max Steiner', from Hollywood, wanted to take her there when she was younger to make her a star, around 1898-1900; not exactly sure on the year. But, she was married to my father with one child at the time, and he didn't want her to go. Other than my keyboard, I love to sing, but with asthma, I can't really hit or hold the notes like I used to. As I said earlier, I also love to bake, cook, play cards, and go out to lunch with my friends.


• In 89 years you’ve seen Civil Rights come along way but Gay/Human Rights still not moving as fast. You however didn’t even mention a thing in your video about Adam being gay. This was very moving. We (The Fans) loved that it did not seem to be an issue with you as someone from the “Greatest Generation”. Would you mind talking a little about that now and how you feel about Prop 8 and Gay Marriage?

[Isabel:] 'There but for the grace of God go I '...a person that happens to be gay, could be in any family, and I think what's in their hearts is more important than people judging them because of their sexuality. We're all God's children. There are many good people that just happen to be gay.

[Isabel:] I would've probably been against 'gay marriage rights' years ago, but through the years I've learned to accept and respect other people's way of life...they have rights just like the rest of us; so, I feel that it should be their decision if they want to marry...we shouldn't try to stop them.


• You are a beautiful, opened minded woman. What is your advice to other people out there that have issues/problems with Adam?

[Isabel:] JUST LISTEN TO HIS VOICE!!...Especially the song he sang when he was in Brigadoon...




...it made me cry, my daughter too; it was soooo beautiful. He can bring so much beautiful music to the world if they'd only give him a chance. His sexuality doesn't have anything to do with how talented he is, or what type of person he is. His personal life is his own; he doesn't judge us, why should we judge him? He wants people to be happy, get along, and enjoy his music...just like I do!


• What is the secret to life as you see it?

[Isabel:] Be yourself, and love your fellow man for who they are. Show your love and affection to people. There is a higher being for all of us to believe in; be spiritual, and have respect for yourself, AND respect and compassion for others.


• At 89 you seem to have lived a very full and wonderful life. If you could have just one wish or do one thing, what would it be?

[Isabel:] As I said in my video, I would love to see Adam before I pass. Just to have a chance to see “my boy” on stage live and hear his beautiful voice live. That would be a true blessing.


• If there is anything else you would like to add.... please do so.

[Isabel:] Thank you so very much for trying to get this out to Adam and others. I hope the people that see my video, my daughter’s comments with it, and this article, have a kinder understanding and view of Adam and his feelings.

[Isabel:] If they haven't yet given Adam a chance, I hope this opens their minds to respect Adam, and enjoy his amazing talent.


Isabel, thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and allow the fans of Adam Lambert to get to know you a little better… it has truly been my honor.
____________________________

So what did I learn from this beautiful woman of 89 from this, the “Greatest Generation”? That she has more wisdom, more integrity, more insight, more knowledge and more acceptance in her soul and life then at anyone from the “Silent Generation (1925–1942)”, the peace-loving “Baby Boomers (1943–1960)”, more then my own “X Generation (1961–1981)” and can teach a whole new world to the “Y/ Millennium Generation (1982–2001)”.

As for the upcoming “Generation Z (2001–)” they are the hope and if any of their parents are reading this… please save this and read it to them one day when then can understand that long before there time, there was a generation of people called the “The Greatest Generation”… why? Because Isabel is living proof of that statement… she is simply and truly… the greatest.


HELP SEND ISABEL TO SEE ADAM!!!

As of this afternoon, Thursday 2/4/10; Mtn Woman from AO has two perfect tickets and seats to the Palm Springs Fantasy Concert of Adam Lambert. Gifted with love from Mtn Woman from AO she is giving these tickets to Isabel and Joy. That’s right Isabel… you are going to see “YOUR BOY ADAM!”

ADAM FANS & GLAMILY HELP NEEDED:

Sean

Broken Open…

Part I of II

On Monday 1st February 2010, @sweetsexysean said:

I know many of you don’t understand my anger and hurt toward Adam Lambert. But try for one moment to walk in my shoes and think about my life... my husbands life. To just take a moment and THINK!

SO MANY people already think being gay is a CHOICE and so many have worked SO HARD to change that way of thinking. So when Adam said about converting from gay to straight.... http://tinyurl.com/ye4ooug "I don't believe in converting, that's just so silly but I do think that it's possible someday." THAT statement was VERY, VERY damaging.

YES, Adam is his own man. He only speaks for himself but Adam IS a gay man and so therefore many people look at him as the example AND the rule and some looked up to him. At least I did. If Adam didn’t ever want the label of “Gay”, he never should have said... “YES, I AM GAY.” He could have said he was Bi or Queer.

So before you get pissed off at me.......walk a mile in my shoes and understand why my heart just broke into a million pieces.

Peace & Love,
Sean

Broken Open Part II of II

Adam, I owe you an apology. A BIG APOLOGY! SO here it goes... It is my mia culpa for making you my gay superhero. You never asked to be, you never wanted to be and it was not fair of me to put you there. You are an amazing singer and song writer and that's it. You just happen to be gay and we have that in common and I made it more then what it is/was.

I always tell you UBU but when you were you.... I slapped you in the face and said NO! I realized, I wanted you to be the man, I wanted you to be. It took a great friend, @AdamsMikeStand to help me realize that and all my TRUE friends standing by me, holding my hand and saying.....we love you Sean, no matter what. Even though I was lashing out at "their idol" THEY still stood by me and loved me and didn't ask me to change. THAT is true friendship. That is pure of heart, which is love. I’m sorry I didn’t give you the same love they gave me.

I learned a very great lesson in all of this.

1. Don't love a person for what you want them to be, but for whom they are, unconditionally.

2. You are human Adam and you owe me NOTHING. You owe your fans nothing but Music. That's it. Just your music.

3. You are an OPEN BOOK and while I may look at some of the pages and think, WHAT? I accept every beautiful page in your Book of Life and thank you for letting us see just a small part of it. It was VERY unfair of me to try and rip apart any page in your book and I am truly sorry and humbly ask for your forgiveness.


To all those that follow me, some of you are still with me and I love you and thank you for your love and support. Some of you left and I understand why. To any Adam Lambert Fan that gave me their two cents, I understand. You were protecting the man and artist you love.

As I have said in my past blogs before.... It's a Journey - Not a Destination and Adam is taking us on an amazing ride. Last night, my Journey took a wrong turn due to my OWN fault but I am back on track and with time..... I hope many of you will learn to love and trust me again and know that I am Adam's biggest male fan/supporter and his MUSIC comes first.....always has and always will.

Peace, Love and Adam Always,
Sean


PS: Sorry for being such a DQ.

D'oh LOL

You Have A New Follower On Twitter... Imagine That!



Imagine…
If you will a man, me, just a simple guy that in real world is actually quite shy.

Imagine…
If you will a man, me, coming online to a whole new world and finding that people think I’m interesting. Why, I’m still not sure.

Imagine…
Me on Twitter getting all these people following me over a letter I wrote to Adam Lambert that to this day, I still do not know if he has ever read.

Imagine…
Me allowing my thoughts to come pouring out in a blog and for people to accept them, like them, even love them and want more.

Imagine….
Me, being scare, overwhelmed not knowing who to trust, what to do and telling people… “No, I won’t follow you on Twitter. I don’t know you!”

Imagine…
How many people I have hurt by that simple, stupid act.

Imagine…
Me listening to my hero, my original hero John Lennon and his words and thinking how I always say… “Adam is what Lennon was talking about when he wrote… Imagine.”

Imagine…
The light finally clicked on for me today and I just Followed 270 of you. Only 80 of you being followed before and now ALL of you being followed because I now hope and imagine I have made someone, maybe just one person happy. But even just one, is better then anyone I rejected out of fear before and I am so sorry and hope you will all forgive me... because each of your are important, beautiful people and VERY important to me.

WHY NOW? BECAUSE…

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world


You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one



Peace, Love & Adam Always,
Sean
