Adam Lambert: “My Wish Is for Gay to Become Less of a Label”
A few weeks before the release of his highly anticipated single, “Ghost Town” Adam Lambert granted an interview and a photoshoot with Rankin for HungerTV. In it, he talked about his music, his career path and his sexuality. Read on for more details.
Lambert, who first gained recognition as a contender on “American Idol” back in 2009, has always been upfront about who he is. The fact that he is gay is assimilated in most things he does; it’s in his music and his stage performances, and he admits that he makes no apologies for this.
“I think there’s a simple power in being unapologetic and open about who and what you are and not letting it prevent you from getting what you want,” he said in the exclusive with HungerTV.
“In that way, I think I’ve made a statement. My wish is for gay to become less of a label and more of just one of many great colors in the collective box of humanity. I’m not a separatist. I’m all inclusive,” the singer added.
These days, Lambert is reaping the value of being open, out and proud, if you will, as it is a huge part of his success. He just finished a successful sold-out tour with Queen in Europe and he’s due for launching “Ghost Town” in April. The single is the artist’s introduction to “The Original High,” an upcoming album he’s been working on for a few years. He lightly cautions the public that the “Ghost Town” promises to be catchy, the kind that will be in your head for hours and hours.
Lambert’s work on his new album is something “very, very personal” to him. He believes that he has matured throughout the process of creating this. He received much helped from Max Martin and Shellback, his album producers, and regards the materials in the album as the “most tasteful, sophisticated” work he has done in his career so far.
“Ghost Town” will be released on Apr. 21, 2015 and then by September, he will once again reunite with Queen for “Rock in Rio.”
