Adam Lambert on Sexuality: Gay Men Scare Americans

by at . Comments

The latest issue of Out magazine names Adam Lambert its Breakout Star of 2009.

In an interview with the publication, Lambert dishes on his life as a celebrity, saying: “Fame doesn’t freak me out. I can handle it. But sometimes out in public there are people that just are so rude."

But the singer saves his most controversial statement for a discourse on sexuality. He says many folks are grossed out by the concept of gay men:

“To some people, me being sexual is really offensive because I’m gay. They’re like, ‘He’s being really gay.’ And I’m like, actually, ‘No, I’m just being sexual.’ Male sexuality is frightening to America [but] female sexuality is all over the place.”

We couldn't agree more. Critics can make all the religious or moral arguments they want to. But if only lesbians wanted to get married, no one would care.

Too many Americans are simply disgusted by the image of guys sleeping together. As a result, they spit on the rights and happiness of their fellow man.

Will Lambert's comments negatively effect his debut album sales? We hope not. But, either way, we admire the singer for speaking his mind.

Adam is one of the most beautiful enlightened human beings on the planet, plus his voice is pure heaven, it really saddens me when intolerant and ignorant beings judge him for being gay, like they have any right to do so, their selves are perfect?? they show their very immature souls by the intolerant crap they write, they are so easy to spot,, they show the inhumaness against the universe that created them, NOW THAT IS ANNOYING, and so very sad.

Adam Lambert is an amazing performer. I look forward to everything he does. I had one of the worst years of my life last year, Adam helped me to get through all of the stress, and anxiety. I will always be grateful to him for that. I will always be a huge fan. I just love him that sexy man!

People need to back off Lambert, there's more to him than his sexuality.

This interview makes me the most proud of Adam. He is definitely not afraid to speak his heart and be vulnerable. Way to go Adam! I the mom of two teenagers and you have opened up my perspective on a lot of things. I will support you all the way! I first fell in love with your voice, but there is so much more to our wonderful Adam. Just stay true to who you are, do your thing and it will be alright...
