Juneau and Xena Part 2: Talking About the Book, Blog & Adam Lambert!
This is part 2 of the interview with Xena and Juneau, who are the authors of the book, On the Meaning of Adam Lambert
On the Meaning of Adam Lambert by Juneau and Xena
This post will be a bit shorter, but the podcast is a bit longer so you will get to spend your time listening to the continuing conversation. However as you listen to the opening of this section of the conversation, you may recognize parts of yourself talking. I certainly recognized myself. particularly when Xena felt that she had to be stoic and would go off and write it down in the book to release that side of her personality that was being repressed– and Juneau also had done the same thing.
Ok.. if I feel this way and these two highly educated, work-savvy women have had the same experiences, what about you? if you are married or even not married, is there a side of you hidden from others that you are afraid to show for fear of — what?– derision, disgust or horror that you might be something more than what others perceive.
The entire point of this book — of Adam Lambert in being who he is and not backing down– is to be the entire complete you that you are and allow yourself to evolve and be better, greater , a more fully realized person than you might be today. Truly they have me thinking even now about the changes I need and want to make in myself.
As Xena says, “lacy lingerie behind the metal breastplate”, is pretty close to the bone and the truth that we as women need to be. However this book isn’t just about Xena and Juneau though it’s by them, for them, it’s about their thoughts, feelings and passion for the music of this young man who has become an iconic figure– a rule-breaker, a transcendent individual who has created such a reaction in the fans– both male and female.
if you head over to the Amazon.com page, you can check out the reviews and see how many women have been set free by this book and Adam Lambert. it’s like someone took Adam Lambert apart and split the man from the image and analyzed the impact of what those events in which Lambert has been in and how it impacts one or two people as the ‘everywoman” (or man) sort of perspective.
These women are incredibly gifted and giving.. and that they have stretched themselves so far to put themselves into this sort of blog and this book is incredible. Some of what they have done,
Juneau and Xena at their book party in NYC.
These women are immersed in Adam Lambert– but more than just the man, but the man who is representative of many things and also allows people to test-drive various roads or aspirations and attach it to him and see how it fits to find their own comfort zone for them to try on themselves.
Truly, it’s a conversation now, it’s not an interview with these two women. It stopped being an interview a long time ago. It evolved into a true sharing between three women and you are seeing and hearing about a part of me too. This is the sisterhood that comes out through Adam Lambert (though I have very little exposure to Lambert). The connection is using Adam as the vehicle that has now allowed 3 women who live in 2 different countries and in various regions to connect, chat and share.
