Adam Lambert Denies Queen Rumor, but Flattered by the Suggestion


Adam Lambert


The runner-up of 'American Idol' season 8 claims his statement about his performance with the band was taken out of context.

Adam Lambert has responded to rumor suggesting that he would join Queen when they're headlining Sonisphere festival this summer. The "Better Than I Know Myself" singer set the record straight by posting clarifications on Twitter.

He posted, "Oooh them clever reporters takin my quotes outta context.... I haven't confirmed any guest appearances. I was talking about the EMA'S. :)" He then added, "That being said, I'm truly flattered by your jump to such glorious conclusions mr journalist!! :)."

The rumor was first run by the Daily Star. "The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some f***ing great songs," he reportedly said. "It's to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of."

A rep for Hollywood Records told Rolling Stone, "The Daily Star item only mentions that Adam may perform with Queen at Sonisphere. This is not confirmed. Nothing has been signed. However, if this were to happen, Queen would be returning to the setting of their final concert with Freddie Mercury, which took place in 1986."

Brian May himself is a fan of Lambert's. He once said, "I'm not easily moved to jelly by male vocalists ... but Adam's voice reaches out with sensitivity, depth, maturity, and awesome range and power which will make jaws drop all around the world."

Rumor about Lambert joining Queen actually is not a new one. Back in 2009 after graduating from "American Idol", he was reported getting an offer to front the band. Although admitting that the idea of rocking with his idols was "unbelievable," he stated back then, "But at the same time, I do have my own thing to do right now, and that's my goal."
