Adam Lambert Still Asked About His Sexuality

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayMusic MinuteAdam LambertLGBT


People need to just get over it!

Yes, we know. Adam Lambert is gay. When a French journalist asked him about the press centering around the issue, Adam responded:

"[My sexuality] remains one of the main topics of conversation, wherever I go. But it's OK, it doesn't bother me. When I'm abroad, people mostly ask me why they talk about it so much in the U.S.! And it's normal, because there are very few openly gay artists. I just don't want it to overshadow my music, and this can be the case because of the media, who have a tendency to sensationalize the issue."

When asked if he was capitalizing on his "coming out" by writing a song called Aftermath, Adam said:

"Pop is so commercial that when there's a cause that you can support in an honest manner and when you can influence people to make their life better, I don't think you should pass up the opportunity. It's very exciting to be able to do something meaningful, beneficial. Even if it's only a simple pop song, there's an intent behind it, which is to help people to better accept who they are.

This album allowed me to introduce myself to the public and the media, to show them what I do. So if I have the opportunity to continue in this business, it won't be necessary to talk about [my sexuality] anymore, because it will already have been talked about. What else can they say?"

So true. With his Grammy nomination and a promise of a new album being recorded next year, let's hope everyone can just begin to focus on his music and not his sexuality.

    Adams so good at dealing with it all tho - and with the media in particular. I've never seen anyone so endlessly patient and polite - and good humoured - in interviews as him.

    I got Adam Lambert's acoustic EP off itunes this week and while the new version of Whataya Want From Me is my fave on it, Aftermath is a close second. It's such a beautiful song, so heartfelt. It's amazing that it is a live recording and he sounds so incredibly good. Rare in this age of autotune studio tricks.

    "I just don't want it to overshadow my music, and this can be the case because of the media, who have a tendency to sensationalize the issue"

    Here's a thought, do what he asks! Shut up about it!

    Adam is sexy sometimes, most pop stars are. But his voice is incredible all on its own, which isn't really the case with a number of popstars who are very successful. I'm glad he got a Grammy nomination - he deserves it.

    Adam is a national embarrassment. Being able to sing and being gay does not give a person a free pass to act like an as*hole. He wants us to think he is really a hot sh*t but we all know he really freaking hates himself. This is what total and complete self hate looks like.

    Re: boston61 – Just saw the same comment from you on another site about Adam. What do you do run around cutting and pasting your garbage where ever you find an article about him. Sounds like you are a little obsessed with him or are you a closeted fan???

    BRAVO Perez….well said!!!!

    BTW - his Acoustic Live! album is amazing. Best voice on the planet!

    I guess Adam can't blame people for pointing out his sexuality since he is very open about it and let's face it there aren't many other gay male singers out there or at least as flamboyant as Adam. Anyways I can't wait for your next album Adam!
