Adam Lambert Opens Up About Expressing His Sexuality in the Music Industry

Adam Lambert graces the cover of the Summer 2018 issue of Attitude Magazine, which will hit newsstands soon.

Here’s what the 36-year-old American Idol alum had to say…

On his new solo music: “Obviously Queen really inspired me. I don’t think this album is genre-specific. I think there are a lot of different influences on it. There’s rock, there’s FUNK, there’s soul, there’s disco, Seventies singer-songwriter pop and some Eighties flavors, too. That being said, there are a lot of modern influences as well, so it’s sort of a fusion.”

On Freddie Mercury being ‘closeted’: “I don’t know how “in the closet” Freddie actually was. I mean it was like another time where it was just taboo to even discuss it in the media. I think it might have been interpreted as him being tongue-in-cheek, but he sort of owned it from the get-go. There were interviews where they were asking if he was gay and he was like, ‘Yeah as a daffodil… gay as a daffodil.’ And I don’t know if they thought because he was being flippant about it that he wasn’t being serious. But he never really said, ‘No, I’m not.’”

On expressing his sexuality in the music industry: “It has never been: ‘These are the rules.’ It’s more about the struggle and the stress of what will and will not connect, and that has changed since I started out: as a pop artist you want people to relate to you and then at some point I had to just balance all of that out with who I actually am, as an artist, as somebody who wants to express himself.”
