Thanks for the 2 links, @nimi... I believe the Young Hollywood video was filmed not long after week 1's DTWS premiere.

Re-posting from GSD... @miav9 posted this link to a fun, 4-way in studio live chat among Adam, Jenna and 2 Entertainment Tonight hosts from earlier today (38 mins.): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OuzEIrWB9Zs

Before their ET live chat, Adam & Jenna also did an FB Live chat with Extra's Mario Lopez (8 mins.): https://www.facebook.com/extra/videos/10155726683474755/

When someone says "tone it down," what does that really mean?
If you aren't being loud or rude, there's no need to tone your self-expression down for anyone. And I think you need to look inside yourself and ask if you are happy with the way you are and if you enjoy your experience. Are you treating people the way you want to be treated? If you do that, then that's what matters most.
What do you say to people who think athletes should keep their opinions to themselves?
Being an athlete, you're given this incredibly large platform where there's a lot of people looking up to you. And I think if you feel like you have the strength to take on a subject that matters to you, even if you may receive backlash about, just do it. But you should only do it if it feels right and is true to who you are. If you have the opportunity to help other people, then you should take advantage of that.

Adam was interviewed on "Good Day LA" earlier today -- 2 ways to watch his 7-minute segment:
https://twitter.com/GDLA/status/994639231120162817
http://www.foxla.com/good-day-la-links/332804807-video

He was filmed on the ice at the Pickwick rink in Burbank yesterday -- this young girl got a pic with him ("What a surprise to hear that he was filming some show [;)] at my rink today."): https://www.instagram.com/p/BilPjVmleWW/

ETA her response in the comments: "yes he skated just a little - no jumping... one of his spins - the corkscrew with his head backwards and it was beautiful!"
