Mary Lambert will join Macklemore and Ryan & Lewis as they
perform gay marriage anthem Same Love at the MTV Video Music
Awards on Sunday night.
In Same Love – available on The Heist – Lambert
sings the chorus: “And I can't change; even if I tried; even if I
wanted to; my love she keeps me warm.”
Earlier this month, Lambert released She Keeps Me Warm, a
full track that builds on that chorus.
In releasing the single, Lambert described it as “the other side
of the Same Love story.”
This week, she released the video for She Keeps Me Warm.

“I felt like there was another story to Same Love,”
Lambert told Billboard.
“I was worried about feeling tacky, like I'm some one-trick pony,
but at the same time, there's a reason that the chorus resonated with
people. I think that the chorus itself is non-political – it's
about this universal idea of what love is. So I made a song
surrounding that idea.”
She added in comments to BuzzFeed:
“I just wanted to provide a visibility for a lesbian relationship.”
