"It's going really well," says Lambert, 27. "It's just fine. We're dealing with [being apart] just fine."
That, of course, doesn't mean he wouldn't like to spend some more time with the 24-year-old LaBry...
"I'm excited for the future...when I'm in L.A. for more than, you know, a day," Adam continues. "It'll be nice."
Meanwhile, Adam's also shooting down a bogus supermarket tabloid story claiming he lashed out at a fan for—ready for this?—smudging his nail polish.
"That's not true at all," he says. "That never happened. Oh my god, I love it! I love how they always go with a 'very reliable source,' 'a close friend of Adam.' I'm like, 'Who?' "
"That's hilarious," he continues. "What's really funny is, if I indeed painted my nails that day, it wouldn't have been at the time when we meet and greet fans...We get ready before the show and we meet fans like a half an hour after that, so that doesn't make any sense."
