Adam Lambert Wants More Tattoos!

Adam LambertADAM Lambert wants to get some more tattoos.

The American Idol runner-up says he’s keen to add a new inking to his body — he just isn’t sure what.

“I haven’t gotten any new tattoos recently,” the star told Rolling Stone magazine. “I thought about it. I need to find something that I want first. I’m not sure what else I want to put on my body, but I’d like to.”

Lambert — who releases his debut album, For Your Entertainment, later this month — also revealed that he likes writing ballads as well as sadder songs.

“I like to write both, I just like to write something that means something,” he said. “Even Strut, it’s not incredibly hooky, but it’s a self-empowerment thing. Strut it out, work your shit, and feel good about yourself and let it all hang out, sooner or later you’re going to find love and be happy in your life. So it’s fun and it’s lighthearted, but it definitely has some weight to it, as far as what it’s trying to say.

“There’s another one called Aftermath which is probably the most Idol-esque type song on the album. The cool thing is that the lyrics are basically about dealing with your demons. I think there’s a universal message in it. It might be about coming out, it might be about self-acceptance, taking the chance of keeping it real and doing what you feel in your heart you have to do, even though it’s scary, even though people might not like it. It might be about going to AA. Any sort of traumatic life moment, and in the aftermath of it, of making that decision and dealing with whatever it is you’re dealing with, you’ll find solace in it. It’s another kind of empowerment-type anthem.”

“I think that especially right now in the pop scene, theatricality is definitely back,” he added. “Look at artists like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, for example, two very kitschy, tongue in cheek artists. Even people like Rihanna, it’s very theatrical, it’s very dramatic, it’s very fashion. All that’s happening, and people like Madonna have been doing it for years, and Michael Jackson was the master of it. I just think that people want that again. I was fortunate that I got picked for Idol and people liked it, because that was the kind of music I wanted to do, add more presentation to it, a little more showmanship, not just about the voice.”

    No tattoos, Adam, NO please! Tattoos are for jail inmates, for other stupids, but not for intelligent people. You are an intellectual, Adam, please do not make yourself a simple one. Do not disappoint your parents, your future children, your present and future fans. Do not use dirty words in your language, do not use to often word "blue", it sounds cheap. Good luck to you, Adam.

    Don’t be so quick to judge tattooed people. You obviously haven’t judged him because he is gay, neither should you judge him because he got tattooed.
    They do not change what a person is inside, just the exterior. If a tattoo makes you feel good and proud of who you are, then do it.
    If you don’t like them fair enough, but leave people to make their own choice.
    Adam I am proud that you got tattooed, and that those you chose have a meaning for you.
