Adam Lambert says on Watch What Happens Live he “freaked out” after discovering Madonna also had a song titled “Ghosttown.”
(Madonna’s is actually two words: “Ghost Town”)
Lambert recently released a promotional song titled “Underground” for his new album, The Original High, but it was his lead single “Ghosttown” that’s getting the attention. During his visit with Andy Cohen on WWHL on Monday, Lambert couldn’t believe the Queen also had a song of the same name.
“I had a momentary freak out,” Lambert said. “My song was already done and mixed, and we decided it was the first single, and then I opened my album and I see her album, because of the leaks, came out early and I see “Ghosttown” and I was like, ‘What are the chances?’ I had a little mini freakout. I’m a big Madonna fan and I didn’t want anyone to think I was coming for her… you know? You know how the gays get! He’s comin for ha. They’re such different songs so it was fine.”

Lambert shared a similar sentiment a few weeks back about the identical song title. “This was done, it was mixed, we had already decided that it was the first single and then December rolled around and I opened up my laptop and looked on iTunes and there was another ‘Ghosttown,'” he says. “It was funny to me because I’m a huge Madonna fan and have been following her career ever since I was a kid and maybe there’s something in the universe going on, I don’t know. Maybe our writers all drank the same Kool-Aid. I don’t know what it was, but it was amazing.”
