Adamisms (Glossary)

Glittery Alien

Glittery alien from Planet Fierce

There are a lot of new words springing up around Adam Lambert since he first arrived on the scene in American Idol Season 8. And yet more keep being invented every day. There are also some terms applied to Adam that may be unfamiliar to some people.

So we thought we’d assemble some of them here for the newer inductees to Adam fandom so that you can catch up fast and understand what everyone is on about. Definitions and explanations are from various places around the internet including the Urban Dictionary and various fan sites.


Adam Lambert:  The nicest and funniest gentleman on American Idol season 8 with an awesome voice and amazing smile. He tried to spice a song up by just adding his own style into it.

An extremely bangable contestant from American Idol. Often seen wearing nail polish and guyliner, and is unfortunately gay. -sob-

Adamism A study or belief in which all things are blessed because of Adam Lambert’s fabulousness, which includes his spirituality and his gifted voice.

Adam Bomb A play on Adam Lambert’s name and the explosiveness of bomb to sound like ‘Atom Bomb’. Describes the global phenomena Adam has caused with his incredible talent, sex appeal and charisma. Used to categorise a die-hard fan of Adam Lambert and everything that has to do with him. They are known as Adam Bombs because they’re ever ready to explode in order to spread more Adam Lambert love and craze throughout the world. (See also: Glambert’s and Lambskanks).

(NOTE: Oh dear – I found another description for this expression – which has nothing to do with Adam – well I don’t think so anyway – but it’s XXX rated so I’ll leave it up to the curious to discover for themselves – be warned don’t look it up if your ‘sensitive’)

Adamphylactic Shock What happens when one goes too long without seeing Adam pictures and hearing Adam’s music.

Adamphetamine The drug that is Adam Lambert – causes sleeplessness, over-excitement, general euphoria, and the propensity to travel.

Highly addictive. Proponents advise generous use. However, the ability to maintain a semblance of normalcy while under the influence is unlikely.

Beware the addictees there is no antidote and rehabilitation is impossible.

Adamoration kind of like regular adoration but when used in relation to Adam it is intensified, magnified and glamorized to the gazillionith degree.

Adamgelic Refers to Adams Angelic Voice, Looks & Personality. NB from puddles: I just made it up now – but it might have already been out there!!! Coach: I’m sure it was!) I think it’s mostly referring to his angelic look but naughty behaviour. So in that way Adamgelic is very VERY different to “angelic”.

Adamitis the contageous love fest that occurs in your mind once to see/hear/read anything Adam. it includes slight fever, major chills and forgetfulness ( as in you forget your life pre-adam)

Adamazing an adjective to describe all things loved about American Idol’s Adam Lambert . One of the many words describing Adam Lambert and his total awesomeness. He is virtually indescribable, but words like these are suitable to describe the awesomeness that is Adam Lambert.

Adamized – to be totally impressed and surprised (in a great way) by all things Adam

Adamlicious a delicious Adam – believed to have been started by a dedicated Glambert in the ‘Adam Lambert Thread’ on the Australian XFactor Forum November 2010. Now the name of the best Adam Lambert Forum – in THE WORLD

Adamgasm – The peak of one’s sexual excitation caused by anything that involves Adam Lambert and his ultra sexiness.

The high point of your excitement of listening to, thinking about, or watching Adam Lambert’s uber sexiness. Like an orgasm, but better.

Adommy – the fantasy pairing of Adam Lambert and Tommy Ratliff (Adam’s bass player AKA the guy he kissed at the AMAs) which was carried through the GNT tour as part of the concerts theatre (and possibly as a thumb to the nose at the conservatives who tried to ban Adam because he kissed a guy) Sadly now extinct due to overly obsessive fans thinking it was real and turning it into cray delusions. Adam no longer kisses Tommy.

Attack of the sex toys Refers to Adam’s tour with American Idol where people kept throwing sex toys (as well as bras) at him. One incident in particular stands out because the sex toy actually struck Adam in the leg while he was performing WLL and Adam deftly kicked it off the stage.

Bassfap – Rhythmic sliding of the fret hand up and down the neck of a bass guitar to simulate masturbation (i. e., fap). Specifically coined to refer to the bassist’s portion of the band intro on Adam Lambert’s Glam Nation tour, wherein such motion is often employed.

“Did you see last night’s concert? When Tommy Joe Ratliff broke out the bassfap during his solo, the Glambulge must have grown six inches.”

BB – Could be so many things but we understand the original meaning was Baby Boy (for Adam) – but use your imagination for what else it could be.

Dang Dang – Nickname given to Adam in Mainland China – derived from his Chines symbol name – Ah Dang.  The trendiest kind of nickname for young Chinese people right now is one character doubled.

Dark Lord Screamanova – This term was actually started by a fan of another American Idol contestant – who were trying to put down HH & the Glamberts & referred to them as “loyal minions of the Dark Lord of Screamanova” Like true Glamberts they look at the positive & loved the name so now they have embraced the term.

This is what one fan says on the Official Forum (which BTW is not a patch on ours) –

“We immediately embraced the name & became devoted followers on the one true Dark Lord who was sent to save us from mediocrity & deliver us from safe & normal.  Enjoy spending time here with your fellow Minions & giving thanks to the Dark Lord for all that he has given to us!

Bow to the Dark Lord Screamanova”

****NEW F.A.W. (pronounced Phaw!) – stands for Flailing Arm Woman the mysterious and – to some – annoying woman who’s arms can be seen flailing and waving about in almost every bit of the GN Live DVD. We are still waiting to find out who she is but it looks like she’s gone to ground. LMAO

Fanyuchka – from a fan’s review of concert in Kiev in March 2013. Via google translate the expression was: when Adam looked at us – my hidden fanyuchka did “jizz in my pants”. We are not going to interpret this one. We’ll just leave you to work it out :)

Lambskank – One who is described as a devoted fan to Adam Lambert and his scorching sexiness. Thrives on adamgasms. Usually declares their up-for-anything-and-everything attitude when it comes to Adam Lambert. Hence, a skank for anything Adam Lambert. A lambskank is also known as proof that Adam Lambert can certainly make the good girls go bad, such as his san diego streaker. Can also be classified as a Glambert or an Adam Bomb.

“Adam Lambert makes me wanna do bad things with him. I am such a Lambskank for him”.

(NOTE – I wondered if I should be offended when I first heard this term – then I saw a vid of Adam saying “Hi all my Lambskanks – I love you”)

Uncle Soy Sauce – Nickname given to Adam’s previous lead guitarist, Monte Pittman when they were in China. It comes from a chinese saying describing someone who just goes about their business regardless of what’s going on around them “I’m just here to buy the soy sauce” – The Chinese fans noticed that Monte is always uninterested no matter what is going on around him on stage – particularly with Adam & Tommy.

Xanadam – idyllic , beautiful place you get transported to when listening to Adam sing; luxurious pleasure dome created by Adam’s music.

Unf – unclear where this originates and looks like it’s not particularly attached to Adam. Some say it’s the initials for something like “usual noise of f***ing” or similar. Others think it just came from a mis-pronunciation of  “oomph” that Adam expressed when he was mentoring on Idol in season 9. He said a performance needed more “Unf”.

Whatever is correct. The term is so perfect to describe Adam that’s all we care about. See next entry!
