According to a report in UK Star, it seems like Adam Lambert will be Queen's new lead singer, but the American Idol alum has since tweeted that his quotes were taken out of context.
"The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some f***ing great songs," he reportedly told the mag. "It's to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of."
However, last night Lambert tweeted, "Oooh them clever reporters takin my quotes outta context.... I haven't confirmed any guest appearances. I was talking about the EMA'S. That being said, I'm truly flattered by your jump to such glorious conclusions mr journalist!! :)"
Lambert previously performed with Queen at the 2009 Idol finals as well as the aforementioned gig at the MTV EMAs. In Star's report, Adam stated that he'd love to hit the studio with the iconic rock band. "It'd be cool to record with Brian [May] and Roger [Taylor]," he said. "Being asked to front Queen is the best thing that can possibly happen."
A rep for Queen's label told Rolling Stone, "The Daily Star item only mentions that Adam may perform with Queen at Sonisphere. This is not confirmed. Nothing has been signed. However, if this were to happen, Queen would be returning to the setting of their final concert with Freddie Mercury, which took place in 1986."
