Adam Lambert Says It Was 'Tricky' To Balance Coming Out & His Career After 'American Idol'

Adam Lambert sits down to speak at the Mosaic LGBT Youth Centre on Thursday evening (May 31) in London, England.

The 36-year-old entertainer joined members to discuss homophobia, his own experience of coming out and his personal journey at the center, which aims to support, educate and inspire LGBT youth.

“After American Idol for a year it was all anyone wanted to talk about in the media,” Adam expressed about coming out. “Part of me was like this is cool, this is important and I’m comfortable with my sexuality. But it also became weird because I was like I also sing, and I have a record that I’d love you to hear. It was tricky to balance it.”

“Now we’re at a point where other artists are out, and the landscape has changed,” Adam added. “Watching the queer movement over the past ten years has been awesome – we’ve come so far, you can see the conversation starting and things are really changing. Making it more than just gay or straight. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel and I’m very proud of that.”

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.”

Adam Lambert Opens Up About Being Out Since 'Idol' & His New Solo Music

Adam Lambert is looking handsome in a new feature for Wonderland, out now.

Here’s what the 36-year-old For Your Entertainment star had to say…

On being openly gay: “I have been gay and out of the closet – very loudly so – since I was 18 and I wasn’t in the closet on the show (American Idol) or around anyone. It wasn’t until the show was wrapping up that I realized everyone wanted me to come out, but I was already out! I’ve always been out. It was just never talked about because it had no baring of what I was doing on stage. It’s not like it was a big surprise with my outfits or my looks or my song choices, you know?”

On homophobia and LGBQT issues in the industry: “A lot of things were taboo and I got some backlash. It was interesting. But now it’s nine years later and I’m seeing different pop acts come up that are so proud about their sexuality and it doesn’t even seem like it’s a big thing anymore! We’re moving to the other side of it, where it’s the way it always should have been.”

On his new solo music: “I think the fans have been waiting long enough, and so have I! I’ve really been trying to explore what I want the sound and subject matter to be. I want it to be authentic and real and something that felt natural for me. Because it’s such a competitive industry, it’s very easy to get lost with producers and songwriters trying to be like ‘this is the trend and this is the sound of the moment’ and all of that’s really cool but it makes you get lost in the game and you lose the heart of what you’re doing. So I’ve been really focused on trying to stay in my own truth in everything and it’s been going really well because now I feel like everything is coming together. Things are really good. I think this year is gonna be really exciting.”
