Idol News Roundup - 8/5/09

The LA Times has part one of a big in-depth interview with Adam Lambert, called "Adam Lambert: The Ultimate Interview, Part One"

Adam talks about his boyfriend Drake LaBray with E! Online, saying, "It's going really well. It's just fine. We're dealing with [being apart] just fine. I'm excited for the future ... when I'm in L.A. for more than, you know, a day. It'll be nice." He also debunks the nailpolish diva rumor that was in the tabloids recently.

More excerpts from the cutting room floor of Adam's interview with the Baltimore Sun were posted on the Sun's entertainment blog. He said he purchased his iTunes videos during the show as a learning tool to review his performance.

The gossip section of the Washington Examiner spotted six of the Idols Monday night at The Source in D.C.: "Allison Iraheta, Anoop Desai, Danny Gokey, Matt Giraud, Megan Joy and Lil Rounds led an entourage of almost 40 people for dinner. A restaurant spokeswoman says the group feasted on tuna cones, short ribs and 'many mojitos.' Desai actually left the formal dining room upstairs to dine on pizzas in the lounge with two female friends. Iraheta, we hear, attracted the most attention, thanks to her little black dress and 'sky-high, patent leather Christian Louboutins.'”

Matt Giraud talks to Hollywood The Write Way about his involvement in and reveals that although he is unsigned at the moment, he he is "writing new music and talking to different people about releasing a few songs on iTunes for the time being".

Idolatry (!!!!) returns with a Brooke White interview by Michael Slezak and a performance of "Radio Radio". Brooke talks about songwriting and says that if the music and lyrics don't come together, the song is "going to be a long road before it gets finished". She says it kills her when she gets a great tune in her head but no words to attach with it.
