Adam Lambert Rages Against the “American Idol” Machine

Let it be known—Adam Lambert is his own man.

The American Idol fave tells E! Online that he’s no mere cog in the Idol machine, and is taking his destiny into his own hands with his upcoming debut album.

Lambert asserts,

“I think there’s a little bit of a misconception out in the public that people that come out of American Idol are puppetted and kind of controlled. That hasn’t been my experience one bit. They’ve been completely supportive and collaborative with me and all the powers that be are really trying to facilitate my artistic vision.”

Lambert even says that he’s co-written a number of songs on the disc-to-be, and has worked hard with producers RedOne, Linda Perry and Ryan Tedder to bring his singular creative vision to fruition.

The singer enthuses,

“I really feel I’ve gotten to inject a lot of this music on the album with my own personal vocal stylings and my own lyrical content. A lot of it talks about stuff I really care about and that I find interesting, so that feels really good.”

Yes it does, Adam. Yes it does.
