THE READERS’ 5 FAVOURITE Adam Lambert’s MAGAZINE COVERS OF ALL TIME…
Every time we see one of our favorites on the cover a magazine, we have to buy it. Adam Lambert is certainly no exception to this. He’s basically ruling the world at the moment, and we don’t see his slowing down anytime soon. In honor of this pop-rock crossover artist (and style icon) that we love so much, we asked Adam Lambert fans and TMN readers to vote for their favourite covers of the magazine, choosing from the 21 issues.
RANK Adam Lambert’s Best Magazine Covers
Every single cover received at least 150 votes – which proves that they’re all loved by someone!
A massive 4.283 votes were cast in the final round, and we can now reveal the overall Top 5.
5 Classic ROCK
In fifth place is Classic ROCK Issue, published in 2015 – The release of the issue came just days after Queen + Adam Lambert wowed fans with their BBC 1 New Year’s Eve concert. The event saw Adam tackling some of Queen’s biggest hits and new figures confirm that they entertained 13.5 million viewers.
In Classic Rock Magazine Adam Lambert talks about the huge job of filling Freddie Mercury’s shoes. He reveals, “There’s never going to be another, and I’m not replacing him. That’s not what I’m doing. I’m trying to keep the memory alive, and remind people how amazing he was, without imitating him. I’m trying to share with the audience how much he inspired me.”
Queen’s Brian May showers Adam with praise saying, “Adam is the first person we’ve encountered who can do all the Queen catalogue without blinking. He is a gift from god.”
Fabulous, Gorgeous cover and great interview!!!
In fourth place is NEXT Issue, published in 2015 – “Adam Lambert is a force to be reckoned with—and it’s not just apparent in his stunning vocal prowess. Simply by being himself since auditioning for Simon Cowell and co. in 2009, Lambert has helped pave the way for LGBT artists and entertainers the world over. And his seamless transition from the eighth seasonAmerican Idol runner-up to the chart-topping solo artist he is today—who happens to play part-time frontman for Queen, no less—is equally impressive. In fact, since he first landed in our living rooms six years ago, there’s been no denying the man’s a star.
Three years since his last full-length release, Lambert called in from Los Angeles to chat about his anticipated new album, The Original High, plus summer love and the fruits of collaboration.”

Our TMN Team absolute adore the cover!
3 Rolling Stone
In third place is Rolling Stone Issue, published in 2009 – Matthew Rolston, one of the world’s great photographers and video and commercial directors, shot Adam Lambert for the iconic cover of Rolling Stone Magazine – who revealed that he’s gay, that he has a record deal, etc etc, in the interview. But moreover, Lambert became a photographic icon just by Rolston shooting him. Rolston, who’s shot everyone from Beyonce’ to Fergie to Salma Hayek – doing covers for Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, W and zillions of other mags for many years – sayed Lambert is one of the rare truly sweet and kind music superstars he’s been exposed to – and compares him to Beyonce’ in terms of how stable and nice he is. “They are the rare superstars I’ve met who are truly centered and coming from a very thankful appreciative place,” says Rolston.
Rolling Stone also shared a video of Adam’s photo shoot:
In second place is GLAMOHOLIC Issue, published in 2015 – The cover coincides with the announcement that Adam will perform his new single ‘Another Lonely Night’ on the UK’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ on November 2015 and the single receiving a massive 61 adds on US radio in its first week.
After an incredible 2015, Adam has announced he will be doing a world tour next year. Starting in Australia in January, he’ll continue on to countries including Germany, Italy and the UK, with US dates to be announced shortly.
These pictures are absolutely breathtaking!
AND THE WINNER IS……
In first place, however, is Attitude the AWARDS Issue, published in 2015 – A worthy winner!
There’s not a thing we don’t love about this cover. Yes, yes, and definitely yes.
Lambert is so much more than a fleeting pop sensation. He’s a talented songwriter, an amazing performer and a style icon to boot. And we all started calling Adam Lambert what he really is — a rock star.
