Adam Lambert is simply a "crazy hedonistic rebel who wants to liberate the masses."
That's what this former American Idol star says in the latest issue of Fault, explaining to the magazine how his public persona does not always jibe with his private one.
"I’m not always as strong and confident as I may seem," Adam says. "I work hard to project pride and poise when faced with judgement and heartache. That is how I cope. I feel a bit of pressure to set a certain example that suggests that I deserve my place in this industry. I'm hard on myself and critical."
And how does his upcoming album, "Tresspassing," play into this dichotomy?
"There are songs on [the CD] that deal with that anxiety," he says. "Until I met my current boyfriend (Sauli Koskinen), I was always falling for the wrong guys, which caused my self worth to suffer. This is just some of what the album explores.”
The album was originally scheduled for a March release, but has now been pushed back so Adam can "work on some new songs," as he Tweeted a couple weeks ago.
