In a new video for Music Choice Play,
singer Adam Lambert says it was hard for him to accept his role as a
representative of the gay community.
The video is one of several the
multi-platform video music network has released this week in
celebration of LGBT Pride.
“What's it like being an openly gay
man in pop music?” the music network asked.
“You can't please everybody,”
Lambert answered. “And everybody wants you to be a different thing
for a different group. At the end of the day, I'm just a guy that
wanted to sing and dress up in crazy clothes.”
“So, it was hard for me to accept
that, like it or not, I was going to be somebody that they looked at
as a figure that was representing the gay community to the rest of
the public,” the American Idol alum added. (The video is
