Without all that makeup, he looks no different to Clay Aiken. This guy tries hard to look “exotic”. He is actually very fair-skinned, acned, Celtic/Germanic looking man.

Its hard to tell what he looks like with all that makeup and hair coloring…

neiltennant July 26, 2015 at 1:53 pm

I wonder kind of Jewish is his mom? Like the ethnic part, ex Russian Jewish

not sure Lambert is a German surname. Christopher Lambert for what I know is French, also I’ve heard a Scottish footballer, now coach, named Paul Lambert.

Christopher Lambert is actually American-born

If a black person can have white ancestry, a white person can have black ancestry. Let´s be honest and fair. Thank you.

Arabs, Jews and Persians are White Caucasians. You don’t have to be Nordic to be a true White Caucasian theres variations of the white race which include olive/colored skin. I think you need to get your facts right and stop being so narrow minded.

@J.J.

Arab is a cultural identity,they have white looking ones,and black(and everything those two colors can make).They are also black Jews,and if I’m not mistaken Asian ones

Naor June 27, 2010 at 3:29 am

Many Jews are blond and blue eyed.. Yes full Jews
In percentage there are more fair eyed people in Israel than in America

Me! December 11, 2010 at 7:12 am

Jews are White

LiL VACHA April 21, 2010 at 10:28 am

HEY ETHNIC, I THINK THAT ADAM LAMBERT IS JUST JEWISH BECAUSE HIS DAD IS JEWISH ALSO I THINK…. BUT OF COURSE HIS MOM IS JEWISH. BECAUSE HIS DAD’S NAME IS HEBREW (WHICH HIS NAME IS EBER WHICH IS HEBREW) SO I THINK BOTH OF HIS PARENTS ARE JEWISH AND HIS DAD’S FAMILY JUST MADE LAMBERT THEIR LAST NAME. IM JUST ASSUMING… BUT THATS WAT I THINK…

Missie March 11, 2011 at 10:23 am

I think adams dad is mostly Norweigan and a little German and his mom is jewish..
