Watch: Adam Lambert Smokes Pot on Stage


Adam Lambert tuned in, toked up, and made out at an Amsterdam gig.

During a rendition of Jimi Hendrix's "Purple Haze", Lambert "kissed a guy, grabbed his crotch and proceeded to smoke a joint on stage. Afterward, he stuck his microphone in his mouth!"

Via Earsucker: "Guy kissing: 1:04, 8:00-8:14; Crotch grabbing: 1:14; Pot smoking: 1:53, 4:09; Microphone sucking"4:39

  1. Finally "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy" becomes an actual lyric.

  5. His encores are always posted around. How about him singing one of his songs like Aftermath. It's about coming out so it's perfect for here.

  9. This is 2010. 29 grams or less is decriminalized where I live. Everybody 60 years of age and younger has smoked weed and/or been around people who do. Now Lambert snorting dope, shooting up,sucking on a crack pipe, chasing the dragon...shit, never mind. It's all passe in the fall of 2010.

  13. ugh....please tell me he's on minute number 14 & a half. Did someone say he's the "gay" Elvis? More like the "gay" Vanilla Ice.

  14. Big fat yawn at . . . oh, all of it!

  15. I am so sick and tired of gay men cutting down their own, while complaining about the lack of visible gay men in the spotlight. To all bitchy gays; Please feel free to step away from the computer, go into the real world and become the star and the beacon of gayness for all of us.

  16. Rock on Adam, and ignore the haters!

  17. I get a kick out of the fact that a kid from American Idol smoked a joint and kissed a dude in what looks like a former church.
    I don't think he was trying to be edgy so much as goofy. You catch him laughing at himself after he does something ridiculous.

  18. I suspect their tour bus is a very fun place to be.

  19. @Ian F.
    'Paradiso' here in Amsterdam is indeed a former church and a legendary venue. Everyone played here, from the Stones to Prince etc. I was a bit stupefied to see a former contestant of American Idol programmed here but whatever. Most people just had to laugh and cheer a bit. But honestly it's sooooooooo boring to see American artists trying be raw and edgy and smoke a joint on stage here in Paradiso, in a country where its legal.

  20. If he's attempting to familiarise audiences with man to man action - as in the kiss - for the greater good, then fine. If he's just doing it - and smoking a spliff - to gain rock and/or roll cred then yawn...

    The times I was in Amsterdam the problem wasn't obnoxious, goofy American was loud, obnoxious, drunk, goofy British kids, Germans, other Euros. The Americans actually tend to be the tamest and most polite of the bunch.

    And there are many locales in the U.S. where marijuana isn't a big deal unless you're a big dealer, even decriminalized for personal use. Personal amounts have been decriminalized next door to me in the State of Maine for example since the 1970's. My state decriminalized less than 30 grams.

  22. If a rapper smoked weed onstage they'd be arrested.

  23. gawd but he's a fatty boy ain't he.

  24. This happened in Amsterdam where weed is legal. Kid Cudi recently smoked pot onstage in Amsterdam as well and even passed out joints to the audience.

  25. God, as someone who has loved and advocated for gays my entire life, this place is a cesspool of sick bullying and hatred. You make me frustrated that I struggle to teach children (and adults) not to judge and hate. You get an exceptionally talented courageous person who is not taking crap from any side (including you haters, I might add) and all's you can do is sit there and ridicule? And oh, geeze, call a 6'1" 170-lb man fat? Really? Pathetic.
