ADAM Lambert says fans can tell when stars are trying to be someone else.

“The public aren’t stupid and they can smell bulls**t from a mile away,” Lambert said.

“Authenticity is really important. If you are not being true to yourself, people are like, ‘meh’. In the beginning when I started I had this glam rock fantasy and I really played it out wearing crazy clothes and a lot of make-up. And over the years it has evolved into a different thing and I just wanted to get a little more real, quite frankly.”

Lambert, 33, is in town for just a couple of days, flying in to perform new single Another Lonely Night live on The X Factor on Tuesday night.

He will return in January for a national run of shows, including Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on the 31st.

“It is really easy to get caught up (in the competition),” he said when asked his advice for X Factor contestants.

“The thing to keep in mind while you are on the show is to keep your ears and eyes open, ask as many questions as you can and start developing relationships that you need. This business is really hard and it is all about the team you have around you and the decisions you make.”

Another Lonely Night is the follow-up single to his previous hit, Ghost Town, from third studio album, The Original High.

“I think everyone has felt that way (lonely),” he explained.

“It is definitely personal and something that I went through but I think everyone has and hopefully when they hear it they realise they’re not alone. Even though it is bittersweet lyrically, it does make you want to dance so that could get you through that feeling.”

The singer added: “I work a lot, I travel a lot and I love what I do. I’m single, I live alone, there are some lonely moments.”

Lambert has sold several million albums since placing runner-up on American Idol in 2009. His biggest hits include Whataya Want From Me and If I Had You.

Longevity is his main game.

“I just want to be able to keep working, that’s pretty much all I am asking for. Yes we are in the music industry and it gets competitive and there’s chart positions and of course it feels good to have a hit but I just want to be able to do what I love for a living and keep it going and artistically explore new things.”!fJk1zYBQ!1WbSKcXm5YYxctbcI1KbMw
