The lead single from that 2015 album, “Ghost Town” was touted as Lambert’s best single to date by the New York Times, and the song eventually was certified gold in January of 2016. While on tour to promote the new album, Lambert again ran into a bit of discrimination for his sexual orientation: in November of 2015, an online petition surfaced protesting Lambert’s appearance in Singapore later that year due to his homosexuality and support of LGBT rights. Lambert was allowed to perform, but warned that his performance needed to adhere to broadcasting and television laws. At the end of 2015, Lambert was ranked as the top earning former contestant of American Idol by Forbes Magazine and will co-star in Fox’s presentation of The Rocky Horror Picture Show as Eddie.

Most recently, Macy’s announced on May 3rd that Lambert would be the new face in their American Icon advertising campaign along with the organization “Got Your 6,” which supports America’s veterans. This is not a surprise, as Lambert has been a fashion icon since his start on American Idol. Clearly Adam Lambert is not slowing down anytime soon, and we hope to see much more from him!
