Happy birthday, Adam Lambert! Time for a news-link party

Adam in white Adam Lambert turns 28 today, and the Ministry of Gossip is having a link party to celebrate. 

His album, "For Your Entertainment," was last week's bestseller, and downloads of the single "Whataya Want From Me" (the video is embedded below) got a boost after he appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," where he recognized the fleeting nature of fame and promised to enjoy every moment of his time in the spotlight.

He'll also be on the Grammys red carpet Sunday with "Entertainment Tonight," critiquing the fashions. "I'm overly honest, so that will probably show through," he tells ET. "I won't be mean, though. I'm not mean."

SoCal locals might want to know that tickets go (or, depending on when you're reading this, went) on sale at 10 today (count the minutes!) for his show at the Fantasy Springs Resort Hotel and Casino in Indio, although judging by the tone of this report, not all the locals are aware that Adam might have a few fans interested in showing up.

Out on the "For Your Entertainment" tour, Adam sat down for a manicure with a reporter in Toronto.

Yes, both of them had their nails done -- check out the fun picture (and fun story) at the link above. As he told National Post reporter Ben Kaplan:

"I like playing dress-up, I like going out, I like taking pride in how I look," he says, citing David Bowie, Boy George, Mötley Crüe and Michael Jackson as influences. "My look is androgynous and over-the-top, but makeup and nail polish are just part of the story. Musicians used to want to feel sexy, I honestly don't know what changed."

Glammy is featured in the VMan magazine that hit newsstands Thursday, along with Justin Bieber and others. Those "exclusive" pics that showed up online Jan. 26? The Ministry had them Jan. 25, with a video to boot. Go figure.

Back to that birthday thing -- as fan group's already know, Adam's cause of choice is arts education in schools, and through DonorsChoose.org, a special birthday giving page has been established. 

Happy birthday, Mr. Lambert!

I dearly love to look at Adam Lambert when he is dressed up nice...but on have you watched Ellen on Idol yet, there is a picture and he looks weird...I hate it when he puts his hair up in the center , looks like a nerd...Now on the other hand when he dresses up with his hair like Elvis wore it, or just down then he is sharp.....Adam fan and love his music.....
