Thank you so much, glitterynfierce
And always helpful joooory
One of the interesting things in this article.
I have never heard about his change of voice before.
When he was asked about his wide vocal range, Adam said " I have wide vocal range by nature. I have hardly experienced the change of voice in my youth. And I have been having vocal lessons in my teens."
Also about his fashion,
" In America, my fashion is too unique but no problem in Harajuku. I was inspired so much by Japanese young people and I can do more adventurous in fashion."

I didn't know he has a company...
A part of the interview of InRock June issue.
Interviewer : You have a company named "Adam Lambert Publishing Designer", don't you?
Adam : Ahaha, to tell the truth, I've changed the name recently.
Interviewer : Really?
Adam : What's the new name? [ He asked his staff, (maybe Lane?)]
It's "Glammer Music", isn't it?
(When I started the company), there wasn't the name and eventually I had that long name(laugh), as a temporary name.
Interviewer : To hear you made such a company, we had impression that you are earnest to write music ?
Adam : Yes, I am.

Not at all :)
Interviewers in US or UK have never asked about his business side, that's all, I think.
Adam is always very honest so if they made some research about him, they could get more infos about him, IMO.
Adam also talked about "Broken Open" a lot.
My translation is not so good, but hope you enjoy it! :wave:
Interviewer : Will you explain one of your songs? Is there any interesting stories in your songs?
Adam : I think "Broken Open" is a good example based on my personal experience.
In the previous year when I appeared on American Idol, I don't know why, but I met a lot of people and experienced many times that they began to shed tears.
There were a lot of people who couldn't control their emotions when they were with me.
Really I didn't know why, but mostly I urged them to talk to me. ( His voice choked.)
Oh, I'm not crying, there's just something in my throat.(laugh)
Then urging them to talk, they all opened up their minds and talked to me about their feelings.
I have been thinking why I was, why they chose me and began to sob or opened up their minds and talked to me.
So "Broken Open" is a kind of a message for all the people with hurt minds.
To the people who think there are many thing that they can't understand or there are pieces that can't match in the puzzle, that song says you don't have to make all the pieces match.
Interviewer : Sure, every one might have thought you were the one to confide in?
Adam : Maybe, so.
To be honest I asked them later and they said they could feel safe when they were with me.
Therefore I wanted to write a song about helping others and being able to feel safe with some one.
