What Has Lambert Been Up to Lately?
Last year, Lambert released his fourth studio album, Velvet. It featured the singles “Feel Something,” “New Eyes,” and “Superpower.” Unfortunately, his appearances in Las Vegas and on a European tour had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Earlier this year, Lambert told Kelly Clarkson that he’s thinking about starting a makeup line, and he’s also working on a musical which he started during the pandemic. The singer has also been doing charity work with his Feel Something Foundation, which he launched in 2019.
