Adam Lambert: How Very Interesting

“I think what is great is that [being gay is] going to become a non-issue, and it should be in my mind. To me, it’s not a big deal. It’s just like, OK, this my sexuality, and I’m cool with it, and this is who I am and I accept myself and I’m much more than that. I think that’s the exciting thing about where we are heading, where in time to come it’s not going to be as much of an issue. And that’s being helped along by people being open and upfront about it, and challenging the stereotypes too. 

“I like that we’re sort of in a time where people are like, ‘look: I don’t want to be boxed in by a label'. It’s very limiting to choose A or B as what or who you are - I don’t think it works that way. I think the more we live in the in between, the happier people are gonna be."

He has less time for Miley Cyrus’s identification as pansexual - “whatever it is” - but is happy the conversation about sexuality is progressing and hopeful that eventually coming out as gay won’t be a news story.

Ellen Page recently talked about feeling morally obliged to use her platform to improve gay visibility, something she said factored into her decision to come out so publicly. Lambert was the first openly gay singer to reach number one with an album in the US Billboard chart, making his own journey an important LGBT moment. 

“I think when everything first happened in the beginning I didn’t realise that that was going to be a big part of my trajectory. I didn’t know that that was going to be something that I was going to be representing so when it all first started, I was little but like, wait, what? But then the more I started realising that it was bigger than me in that way, that I could hopefully give a young person some courage – which is exciting!” 

Adam Lambert, light entertainment megastar and queen of the gaybores, talks to The Independent.

Has he not noticed the only thing anyone ever wants to talk about is his sexuality?

Cause it's the only vaguely fucking interesting thing about you!

'I don't see myself as a shit artist, I see myself more as an artist who happens to be shit...'
