He has a stack of hit singles and eye catching videos to his name, so we thought glam-pop singer Adam Lambert would be the perfect artist to ask for his picks at this year’s ‘2012 MTV Video Music Awards’!

Although Adam shied away from predicting an actual winner for the ‘Video of the Year’ category, he did admit that he loves Bajan beauty Rihanna’s “different” clip for ‘We Found Love’!

“I liked the Rihanna video a lot because I felt like it was something different,” he told MTV Australia when we caught up in Sydney last month.

“You know, all of us want to make some glam, fabulous, fashion-orientated thing but that video was very real, almost like documentary style and I thought it was very cool.”

And the ‘Never Close Our Eyes’ singer had nothing but kind words for Australia’s own Gotye, who’s also up for nods in the ‘Video of The Year’ and ‘Best Editing’ categories!

“I love the song, yeah it’s great. It’s so different, you know, and the fact that it has become such a big hit especially on American radio is really refreshing,” the former ‘American Idol’ star added.

“Songs like this song really change the game a little bit for everybody else and they make us realize that there isn’t a formula maybe, even though everybody keeps saying that there might be.”

Don’t miss the ‘2012 MTV VMAs’ broadcast live from LA’s Staples Center on Friday September 7 @ 9am (11am NZ) on MTV Australia!
