Along with releasing his sophomore album this week, Adam Lambert also debuted a new silver-streaked hairdo.
“I wanted it to look like sunrise,” Lambert told PEOPLE Thursday night at the American Idol results show. “My hairdresser and I have a lot of fun. Both of us get bored very easily — so it’s like, ‘What are we going to do now?'”
The American Idol alum, who stopped by his old stomping ground to perform his single “Never Close Your Eyes,” was also in better shape than ever before.
Lambert said he lost weight the old-fashioned way — by watching what he eats. “Oh, you know, just being a little bit smarter with the junk food,” the singer revealed to reporters. “Skipping the ice cream that I love so much!”
Ice cream isn’t the singer’s only vice — he has a weakness for other dairy products, too. “I miss cheese,” he joked. “I really like cheese, but I haven’t been eating so much of it.”
