Adam Lambert Slams Jackie O for Gay Comments; ‘The Original High’ Singer to Tone Down Theatrics
Adam Lambert is still at the peak of his career after a seemingly long wait for his new album “The Original High.” While the 33-year-old singer can be known to some people as the gay singer from “American Idol,” Lambert admitted that times have changed and the music industry is becoming more accepting of singers, regardless of their gender or sexual preferences. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Adam Lambert is known for his extreme and theatrical performances on stage and while it’s one of the things that his fans loved him for, the “Ghost Town” singer revealed that he will be toning down such acts for his upcoming tours.
“I think in the past my image was very theatrical and flamboyant, and it’s been great to make people smile but I feel like I’ve done a good amount of that and it was time to try something new and strip that back and be something real and not a character,” Lambert told Yahoo! UK.
Lambert recalled that since his rose to fame in “American Idol” six years ago, he has finally reached that point where he can be comfortable being himself. “I don’t feel the need to please anybody.”
While the “If I Had You” singer said that times have changed and the music industry has become more accepting of gay singers, Lambert recently slammed a radio show host for citing gay remarks.
Perth Now reported that KIIS FM’s “Kyle and Jackie O Show” host Jackie O commented on how Lambert could start a relationship with Ricky Martin because of their same preferences.
“Don’t do that, you’re not allowed to do that,” Lambert remarked.
Jackie O tried to defend her statement by saying that there’s more to her statement than Lambert thought and said, “you’re both in the industry, you both understand each other’s schedule, you’re both hot… it would work.” Lambert, however, did not seem pleased at all.
