Tyler Smith places in Adam Lambert Video Contest

Issue 39, Volume 16.

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook resident Tyler Smith, 16, was named the second place winner in the Best Overall category ("Above & Beyond") in the International Adam Lambert Video Contest.

Lambert asked his fans to create videos set to his upcoming new single, "Trespassing," from his current album of the same name, which debuted at #1 in May.

The second place win makes Tyler’s entry # 1 from the U.S. out of hundreds of entries. The other winners in the Best Overall Category are from New Zealand (first) & Canada (third).

Tyler’s video has received over 13,000 views on YouTube, Advertisement

since Lambert tweeted his video as one of the overall winners. Tyler stars in the video, and did all of the video editing himself. He loves music, video editing, and animation.

"He just seems to learn things so fast," said his parents Don and Ali Smith, who were amazed when at the age of two years Tyler understood the concept of the "Back to the Future" movies, which they believe sparked his interest in movie and television production, as well as video editing.

Congrats on the creativity ...and effort, and National Recognition. To each-his own. But it May be wrong for a 16 YO be involved too deeply in the Adam Lambert persona. Just sayin'...hey in my day...people dressed like Adam Ant (not the cartoon)...and went, yeah...I mostly get it!

But it does appear you got Gov. Jerry Brown, on your side with the passing of associated legislation. Have you considered working out with weights and looking into joining the AirForce for flight training?

I see fab success and a happy life for you n yur future!

Thank you for your congratulations, but I could have done without your judgmental comments, and assumptions about my son's orientation.

Although it is none of your business whatsoever, my son happens to be straight, and totally attracted to girls.

We are ALL Adam fans in this house. Mom Dad and Son. As Glamberts we are all about love, acceptance, being positive, allowing people to be themselves, and express themselves in their own way etc.
We could use more positive role models like Adam in this world.
There are too many people in the world who are bullying, hateful, judgmental of others, and afraid of anyone that looks, thinks, or acts in some way that is different from the crowd.
(All that typical Jr High school mentality)

And what's with the Jerry Brown legislation comment? That's quite a leap, to assume that my son, who you don't even know, is gay because he is a fan of an extremely talented Grammy nominated singer who just happens to be gay.
(I can't believe how many people are unable to refer to Adam without referring to his orientation, as if that's all that defines him.)

My son is 16 yrs old and still growing, being tall and slender runs in the family, His paternal Grandfather was the first player ever signed to play with the Lakers, and yes, he was tall and thin too! For you to judge who my son is by his weight and height is only acting like a bully.

As far as your suggestion of joining the Air Force, I have respect for the military, my father served in the military and in the war, in the military, but I know that it is not for everyone. And I can tell you that the military would definitely not be the ideal environment for my son's personality.

I find it offensive that you would use the honor of the military to hide behind for your bullying of a 16 yr old child.

Yes, he will be a fabulous success and will have a happy life. Thank you for saying so, but I find it odd that you just mention mom. He lives in a loving, supportive, secure, and creative household with his 2 straight parents who are married to each other.

I'm done with this topic if you don't want the Mama Bear to come in growling, don't attack the cub ...
