Who is behind the make up? It’s Mom, of course. Fearlessly fashionable American Idol contestant Adam Lambert has never been shy about his wild side. “I have nothing to hide,” he has said. But the surprises havenâ€™t stopped since the American Idol contestant, 27, unveiled his one of a kind style on the hit show last January, according to a report.
“Heâ€™s always been a star, unique to the core,â€ former boss Chris Isaacson, of L.A.â€™s Upright Cabaret said. â€œViewerâ€™s are only seeing the tip of the iceberg.â€ They note his strong connection with mom, playfully dubbing him a Mamaâ€™s Boy. Good timing for a Mother’s Day nod to Adam’s mom Leila.
â€œHis mom is the most supportive woman,â€ Upright Cabaretâ€™s Chris said of Leila Lambert. â€œSheâ€™s allowed him to flourish and be the person he was meant to be. His parents didnâ€™t force him into sports, but let him follow this creative desire to dress in costumes and sing his heart out.â€
Other moms love him as well and Adamâ€™s performances have stunned his legion of fans, including Kelly Rippa and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. â€œHis stage presence is phenomenal,â€ according to “The View” host. Despite Adamâ€™s shocking slip to the bottom two on April 29, the season-eight frontrunnerâ€™s songs have been downloaded more frequently than his competitorsâ€™ on iTunes.
