Singer Adam Lambert says the media is
making a “big deal” out of British singer Sam Smith's sexuality.
Last month, Smith revealed that his
single In the Lonely Hour is about unrequited love between
himself and another man.
The 22-year-old Smith said he had only
been in “unrequited relationships.”
“In the Lonely Hour is about a
guy that I fell in love with last year, and he didn’t love me back.
I think I’m over it now, but I was in a very dark place. I kept
feeling lonely in the fact that I hadn’t felt love before. I’ve
felt the bad things. And what’s a more powerful emotion: pain or
happiness?” Smith said.
The revelation only led to more
questions, such as, “Does Smith identify as gay or bisexual?”
Speaking to UK
Star, Lambert, who is openly gay, said the speculation was
“Sam is going through that process of
having his sexuality dissected and talked about,” Lambert said.
“It's hard because even though things
have changed a lot since I came out, it's still a drama or talking
point,” he added. “He told me he has never had an issue about
his sexuality until now because everyone is making such a big deal
about it, which is crazy.”
