Adam Lambert has gone ahead and insured his voice in 2012. The runner-up of the eighth season of The American Idol said that his voice was his source of livelihood and it is what makes sure that he is able to pay the bills, therefore, he has to make sure that it is insured. He even referred to Jennifer Lopez and said that if she could insure her derriere then he could do the same for his voice.
According to The National, Adam Lambert has spent $48 million to get his voice insured. This move was taken after Adam Lambert was named as the highest earning alumni of American Idol by Forbes in 2012. He decided that he needs to protect the one thing that helps him earn over $10 million every year on an average.
Adam Lambert is on fire these days. He went on his third solo tour on the eve of New Years and even before the tour could end, there is news that Lambert is going to go for a toned down version of his Original High Tour at the RedFest DXB.
Adam Lambert is going to collaborate with Queen in June for the Isle of Wight Festival. Adam Lambert had previously gone on tour with Queen – Roger Taylor and Brian May and he couldn’t have been more excited about the prospect of coming together with them again.
