American idol runner-up Adam Lambert yesterday told how he bonded with his hero Lady Gaga – thanks to a love of whisky.
The singer, who received a standing ovation from judge Simon Cowell on the US show, has been described as the male equivalent of Gaga.
Yesterday, he jetted into Scotland on a whistle-stop tour to promote his new album and was delighted to strap on a 21st-century kilt for the Razz.
He said of his spiky sporran: “It’s like having a cactus – a little pet cactus.
“I’m not a true Scotsman today because I’ve teamed up the kilt with some plaid leggings – but I’d like to wear this back home in the US too.”
LA-born Adam, 28, revealed he has a lot in common with Lady Gaga, who wrote the song Fever for his album For Your Entertainment.
He said: “We had a couple of whiskies and traded stories about life and music in the studio and, in some ways, we are cut from a similar cloth.
“She did theatre for a while too and she got into the club kid scene in New York and I did in LA. We had a similar experience and it’s a compliment to be dubbed the male version of her.”
