If you think you saw Adam Lambert for a brief scene in Bohemian Rhapsody, you were right.

The acclaimed film is slated for home release on February 12, 2019 but is already available for pre-order here.


The former American Idol runner-up in the show's eighth season has firmly established himself as an accomplished solo artist in his own right, landing him a collaboration performing with the remaining members of the rock group, Queen, now known as Queen + Adam Lambert.

In an inspired twist, the singer crossed paths with the rock legend who formerly fronted Queen on which Bohemian RhapsodyRhapsody is based.

Sort of.

Lambert confirmed he was the truck driver from the Queen biopic who shared a fleeting moment with Freddie Mercury, who was played by Golden Globe winner Rami Malek.

The singer teased in a tweet on Saturday:

"Who is he!?"

Access Online refreshed audiences' memory of the singer's cameo halfway through the film.

In the scene, Freddie Mercury (Malek) is at a rest stop and talking to his fiancée Mary Austin on the phone. Enter: rugged truck driver (Lambert), with whom Mercury locks eyes before disappearing into the bathroom.

The film implied that the pivotal moment signified Mercury's first gay experience after coming to America.

Lambert fans campaigned for him to win an award for his seductive portrayal of a blue collar worker.

Maybe he needed to catch his breath from getting hot flashes.

Lambert first performed with Queen band members, Brian May and Roger Taylor, during American Idol in 2009 and officially joined the group as the new frontman in 2012.

According to Digital Spy, May said that Mercury, who died on November 24, 1991, would approve of the new lead singer bringing the band into the future.

"Judging by my incoming mail, this decision will make a lot of people very happy. It's a worthy challenge for us, and I'm sure Adam would meet with Freddie's approval!"
"And what better place to revisit, and walk those emotional paths than Knebworth? It will be a rush."

Lambert said he hoped to honor Mercury's legacy prior to Queen + Adam Lambert's July 2012 performance at the Knebworth Festival in England, which was the final venue where Mercury performed his final act with Queen in 1986.

"I'm completely in awe of the Queen phenomenon. The thought of sharing the stage for a full set is so beautifully surreal. I'm honored to be able to pay my respects to Freddie's memory."
"He's a personal hero of mine and I am deeply grateful for the chance to sing such powerful music for fans of this legendary band."

With his current successes, the humble singer must wonder if this is the real life or just fantasy.

But to us, he is a champion.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
