Singer Adam Lambert has said he can't
win on how he portrays his sexual orientation.
The openly gay Lambert appeared
Wednesday on CBC Radio's Q
Ghomeshi to pitch his
sophomore album Trespassing.
30, said of the track Outlaws of Love:
“This song is super important to me. I think this song probably
has the most dignity on the album. It has a certain amount of
restraint that I was really excited to create. It's about the
sadness that I sometimes feel when I look at the struggle of the LGBT
community. All of our challenges. You know there's the marriage
equality thing going on right now, kids are being bullied in schools.
Just the general ignorance surrounding the community. It saddens me
sometimes. … This is the one song on the album that really kind of
laments how depressing it can be sometimes.”
On his portrayal of
his sexual orientation, Lambert said: “You can't really win, either
way. On one hand to a certain audience you're too gay and it's, 'Why
is he always talking about gay this, gay that. That's all he talks
about.' And then to the gay community, 'Ok, he's not being gay
enough. Or he's not being the right kind of gay,' which I don't even
know what that means. … It's something that's not as under my
control as people think it is. That's where it gets trippy.”
