Adam Lambert and Diana Ross?

May 17, 2012 - Update by: @NileRodgers
After a day of traveling that started at 3:00 AM I arrived in Curacao and passed out. I'm leaving up yesterday's post and we can all comment on the newspaper coincidence again and give the people who missed it yesterday a chance to chime in.

I spent yesterday night in my NYC apartment - but I had to get back to Connecticut for an early morning session. While walking through Grand Central Terminal to get the commuter train, I grabbed one of the many free newspapers they offer. This is something I never do because I get my news online.

What are the odds of the only newspaper I've ever taken at that station having these two stories exactly one page apart?

The first story was on Adam Lambert's new album Trespassing - and the article highlighted "Shady," a song that I'd worked on. The second story on the following page was on a new Diana Ross DVD, and it highlighted "I'm Coming Out," another song that I'd worked on. In fact, I co-wrote, orchestrated, co-produced, and played on it. It's from the album Diana, which happens to be the biggest selling album of her career.

I ask you once again, "What are the odds of these two songs being highlighted, in back-to-back articles about Adam Lambert and Diana Ross?
