Singer Adam Lambert says he's happy to be out because he doesn't want to have any regrets in 20 years.

Lambert will headline Pride in the Street Festival, which takes place Saturday in downtown Pittsburgh.

Speaking to NewsRadio 1020 KDKA, Lambert was asked whether his gay rights activism puts his career at “risk.”

“Do you view it as a risk? Do you view it as something you have to do?” host Joe DeStio asked.

“In some cases, there are parts of it that might work against me,” Lambert answered. “I figure in 15 years from now, 20 years from now, I don't want to look back with any regrets. You know, I want to do what I want to do. And ultimately that integrity is the thing that I think is more important than the immediate like sales or, you know, measurable success.”

“And I also feel like, you know, between you and I, it's kind of a little bit fun to kind of rile people up,” he added with a laugh.
