by at . Comments

Adam Lambert covers the latest issue of Instinct, a magazine that focuses on the LGBT community - and opens up to the publication on a topic that may cause some controversy for the former American Idol star.

"As a community, we’re a little bit resistant to a gay male pop star ourselves," Lambert says. "It’s very easy for people to look at my origin, which is American Idol, and automatically assume that I’m a commercial sellout or a puppet or a flash in the pan.

"I don’t think I’m any of those things. There’s something weird there. We’re very eager to celebrate a strong female. But to celebrate a fellow gay man – it gets catty sometimes.”

The artist will soon be coming out with a new album, one he has described as especially personal, and he elaborated here regarding what fans can expect:

“This is the kind of music I listen to. I know the style of vocal I have is kind of big. It has a certain edge to it. I’ve always loved rock, but I also love stuff that is more groove-based, more funky, more soulful, more dance music.”

Oh My God! Adam soooo beautiful *_*


Adam does not hide in the shadows. He had trained hard and has a respectable musical theatre background of experience. Gay or not, I admire the total quality of voice he portrays on all of his records. He would not have been asked to do the song Time for a Miracle for the movie 2012 otherwise. All I can say is GO ADAM !


I think what Adam means about the Lgbt community being "catty" is what I see when I watch some shows with people from lgbt community who discuss Adam. One person will say he is to outrageous & bad for the community, then the next will say he's not "out" enough or he should be more vocal. He can't win. I am a straight female fan, but I am very supportive of the lgbt community partly because of Adam. I was supportive of equal rights before Adam, but seeing as I didn't know anybody who was gay, I was not passionate about it. I think the lgbt community should back him just for the fact that he is out & proud. That he is making it easier for artists not to have to hide in the closet till they are famous to come out. He is saying it the way he sees it,& he's not the only one. It is a little sad that most of his fans are straight females.


Adam Lambert is the best singer out there. He is the most amazing performer and an incredibly sweet and beautiful person. I. Love. Him. There's no one like Adam. No one. ♥


He should a. just be himself and never mind the catty comments and b. just be happy that he has and audience and a fanbase whoever they are. Everyone in the world is not going to like you, ever. It's better just to accept it..


Jimmy T & Commonsense = CATTY CASE IN POINT!! and throw in a pinch of they don't know what the eff they're talking about either


'con't' ...I'll take the uber-talented,skilled at singing/song-writing,on pitch,in key,lip-sync-free Adam Lambert any day!!!


@common sense: You don't know what you are talking about. Adam wrote on 12 of the 15 songs on Trespassing. Yes, music is subjective but I get a feeling you are just not listening.
@Jimmy T: Wow, where do I start? As a gay man, I find your comment totally disgusting, pathetic and really sad. YOU are the problem not Adam.
BTW - his new CD is BRILLIANT.


Who cares about Adam's "personal" cd? Shoot he doesnt even write the lyrics so how personal can it be?
I love little stars who have enormous egos! Come out with some really good music and then more gay people will like you.
And be happy you have these rabid Liberace leftover fans. At least that's something.
