Our good friends of at Gather.com have been kind enough to bring this little story to the attention of everyone out there. Adam Lambert, who just got back from a week of partying over at Burning Man, filmed a bit for MTV’s Talk @Playground earlier this summer. The piece will finally air this upcoming Sunday. Previews of the segments have already become available, as can be seen above.
On the show, Lambert talks about fashion and how it inspires him saying “Like many musical artists, I’m inspired by clothes. And when I’m in something or wearing something, I’m in a different creative space when I’m writing a song. Or if I’m performing on stage, it puts me where I want to be in my imagination and what world I want to live in. What would I be dressed in while I was telling that story.”
According to Renee Snyder of Gather.com “The show pairs creative people in the worlds of music and fashion to discuss ideas and inspiration. For his segment, Adam was paired with SKINGRAFT Founder, Johnny Cota. Adam is friends with the Skingraft owners and has worn their designs on American Idol, during his Glam Nation tour and during photo shoots.”
It should not be surprising that Lambert was selected to participate in this. While he has certainly not shown the flair for the eccentric that Lady Gaga has, he has a certain fashion sense that tends to draw the eye to him wherever he goes. Lambert recently presented the Style Award at the VH1 2011 Do Something Awards.
The Swatch MTV Talk@Playground series will also feature these other artist/designer pairings: “Rankin & Kelis, Keri Hilson&Kerin Rose, Beth Ditto & Fred Butler, Kelly Rowland & Jen Kao, Juliette Lewis & Alex Noble, Skylar Grey & Paul Budnitz, and The Black Eyed Peas & Jean-Charles De Castelbajac.”
Lambert has become rather famous for his singing and musical abilities, but he has also won the hearts of many a fan through his dedication to helping others. Lambert has donate quite a lot of money to causes that help young people, and especially those aimed at stopping the LGBT suicide crisis.
Lambert has been known to attend award shows with his boyfriend Sauli. The two appear to be pretty happy together right now.
