Adam Lambert covers the new issue of Instinct Magazine, and he makes some interesting points about his career and how he's perceived by the gay male audience.
“As a community, we’re a little bit resistant to a gay male pop star ourselves,” Lambert says. “It’s very easy for people to look at my origin, which is American Idol, and automatically assume that I’m a commercial sellout or a puppet or a flash in the pan. I don’t think I’m any of those things. There’s something weird there. We’re very eager to celebrate a strong female. But to celebrate a fellow gay man — it gets catty sometimes.” Interesting!
On his new album, Trespassing, Adam tells the mag, "This is the kind of music I listen to. I know the style of vocal I have is kind of big. It has a certain edge to it. I’ve always loved rock, but I also love stuff that is more groove-based, more funky, more soulful, more dance music."
This definitely makes sense ... and kudos to him for speaking out about it!
