James Taylor debuts at number 1 today with his first album in 12 years, selling 95,000 copies of “Before this World,” twice as many as the number 2 album, by Adam Lambert.
“Adam is devastated. What happened? He did a ton of press and still no-one bought his new album,” a pal tells NAUGHTY GOSSIP. “This could be his last CD. If sales don’t improve, he won’t be making any more.”
Adam sold just 41,112 copies! OUCH
Adam Lambert admits to “moments of frustration and pressure” after coming out to the world in 2009.
‘At that time, how many mainstream music artists did we have that were out? Elton John and George Michael – and his whole coming out was tabloid fun. There hadn’t been a blueprint to follow,’ Lambert tells Out Magazine.
‘The one thing I wished I’d had: a little more guidance,’ he says. ‘There were definitely moments of frustration and pressure, but there’s been a lot of goodwill as well, a lot of support from fans and media people, and it’s balanced out. I don’t have any sort of bitterness about it.’
