The Advocate Reinvents Adam Lambert

By Charlotte Robinson, October 18, 2011
Adam Lambert definitely was American Idol’s most interesting graduate, has a new album in the works, a new relationship & a new media attitude. Before American Idol Lambert’s life was not defined by his sexuality. According to him, “all of a sudden it’s all about being gay.” He acknowledges that some good can come from that, “When I was a kid I didn’t have that many people to look up to. And if I’d had people in the public eye who were really up-front about it, it probably would have helped me. I feel like this is a conversation Advocate readers will understand where I’m coming from, because it’s tricky–I don’t know what the f--- I’m doing sometimes. Seriously. No one teaches you how to be a gay celebrity.”

How many ways can I spell G-A-Y? Everybody knows I’m gay. And the thing that’s hard is, where’s there balance for me? I’m a musician and I’m writing music. I’m also becoming more involved sociopolitically, I’m getting involved with the Trevor Project and Equality California — these are things that I really do care about. But I do want to maintain a balance. What am I going to be known for in 15 years? I want to be known for my music, that’s my art. That’s what I’m contributing actively. I think visibility is a great tool, and that’s one other reason that I’ve been so verbal about it, but the irony is that here we are, talking about it.
