Glambert Talks Controversy & His New Album

An album that we are waiting for with bated breath!

Adam Lambert was interviewed in this month's issue of The Advocate and he doesn't hold back on anything. Remember when he made out with his male keyboard player at the American Music Awards? Yeah, he talks about that. Remember that Details photo shoot? Yeah, he goes there! And of course, he chats about his next album, due out next month, which he calls his most personal to date.

Check out these HIGHlights from the interview:

On the shock of kissing his male keyboard player at the American Music Awards:

“I kind of asked for it in a way. Not everything is so premeditated as people think it is. There are things that just happen, there are things you just do. It was an impulse.”

On that Details photo shoot:

“Taking a picture with a girl — I thought it was just sexy. Most of my fans are female, and it was kind of a fantasy for them, and why not? There’s no question in their minds (that he’s gay). No question in my mind, not an ounce.”

About his new album:

“No matter what the genre is, it’s all very personal, even on upbeat, fun tracks. The last album was a little bit more of a fantasy escape…even my image for that last album felt very theatrical and kind of over-the-top and intentionally tacky. I get a kick out of making artistic statements that are kind of ridiculous.”

Balancing his music with his image:

“How many ways can I spell G-A-Y? Everybody knows I’m gay. And the thing that’s hard is, where’s there balance for me? I’m a musician and I’m writing music. I’m also becoming more involved sociopolitically, I’m getting involved with the Trevor Project and Equality California — these are things that I really do care about. But I do want to maintain a balance. What am I going to be known for in 15 years? I want to be known for my music, that’s my art. That’s what I’m contributing actively. I think visibility is a great tool, and that’s one other reason that I’ve been so verbal about it, but the irony is that here we are, talking about it.”

We'd like to think there will be a time when people aren't defined by their sexuality, but if nothing else, at least people like Adam are doing what they can to work towards that. Good for him.

Now, give us a taste of the new album!!! A single, a sampler - ANYTHING!!!

    Oh brother, here we go again. I never thought I'd be so bored by "controversy"
    Btw…he's looking more and more like Liza Minnelli.

    Re: Whatevers!!! – if you were bored by it you wouldn't bother reading it, lol. How ya doing Kris Allen fan?



  3. 3

    I'd like to imagine a day where people aren't defined with their sexuality, but it's hard to do that when people like you feel the constant need to shove it down people's throats. DO YOU EVEN WRITE THIS STUFF?!?!



  4. 4

    Re: Express_Lane – I love when homophobes say they don't like the gay being "shoved down their throats". It sounds kind of naughty, and like you're protesting a wee too much ;)

    Hard to believe Adam Lambert is still being asked about the AMAs kiss. If he was reacting against the gay media for claiming he wasn't gay enough what was his 'male keyboard player' doing who is said to be straight and has continued to kiss Lambert publicly while on tour? Perez, can you get him to talk about what's in it for him?

    Re: ih8trolls
    A homophobe having an account on perezhilton… I love how intelligent and misunderstanding people can be. Sigh.

    Re: ih8trolls
    I mean would you like it if "straight" people had to constantly tell people so… A problem is only a problem if it is made one.

    Re: ih8trolls – I agree. Funny how there are so many overtly sexual performers out there, but they never get accused of shoving their heterosexuality down our throats. Stars always get asked about their romantic lives - there is still such a double standard.

    Frank N Furter, is that you?



  10. 10

    Re: Express_Lane – When straight people constantly talk about how homosexuality is a sin, isn't that pushing their christian identity down people's throats too ? hmmmm.



  11. 11

    I love his voice……and his hair!!!!



  12. 12

    Re: Cashmere Jay – He would make a fantastic Frank'n'Furter!

    Re: iloverickymartin – And Ricky Martin…enough said



  14. 14

    Love Adam, can't wait for his new music!



  15. 15

    he needs to go easy with the make up. He looks a bit clownish.

    and we all know a ginger lurks beneath all that black dye and make up! eww



  16. 16

    That looks is gross. Be gay and be happy. without the ugly sister look.



  17. 17

    I thought he came out as Bisexual (even though any one with a decent radar could tell he's definitely all gay).

    And to each his own, but this gay man, think he looks gross, enough with the caked on make-up and need to over style your hair every time your pic is taken…



  18. 18

    If Boy George and Tokio Hotel singer had a love child…….

    All you haters ““““““` wish you were 1/2 the man Adam is!!! ♥



  20. 20

    Hmmm, he'll need so called "controversy" to wake up the snoozefest that is his music…..he's the most boring gay I've ever read about. Spice it up Adam, make us want you and want to listen to you….like George Michael :)



  21. 21

    Re: kustumpainter – Ummm, nah, their child would've had more talent! Adam needs to liven things up!



  22. 22

    Re: ih8trolls – it's not straight people talking about "sin', it would be those who believe in what the bible says. And not every straight is a believer. Get your facts together or you come off sounding like an idiot.



  23. 23

    SQUEE!



  24. 24

    Adam is an embarrassment to all normal gay MEN.



  25. 25

    can't wait for the album!!



  26. 26

    Re: boston61 – What is the definition of a normal gay man!!! He is being himself and that is all he needs to be.



  27. 27

    Not gay enough — too gay — not normal — be gay and be happy! — Liza Minnelli — YAWN (O) Please come up with some more creative put downs.. you guys are failing so far :P



  28. 28

    CAN'T WAIT FOR HIS ALBUM !!!



  29. 29

    To Boston61: What is a NORMAL gay man?? If Adam isn't normal, then I like abnormal much better. I would guess you aren't as cute, sweet, nice, popular, talented and generally an all around nice guy as Adam is. Why is the gay community so rude to it's own? Seems such a waste. LOVE ADAM.
