In a new interview, out singer Adam
Lambert says most people don't care about his sexuality.
The 34-year-old Lambert spoke with the
Journal Sentinel ahead of Tuesday's performance in the
Riverside Theater and just after he debuted a new single on American
Idol: Welcome to the Show.
“How do you feel about society's
response to openly gay performers or gay themes in music in 2016?”
he was asked.
“What I've found that is interesting
is the majority of people I've encountered really don't care,”
Lambert answered. “The people that care the most about it are the
media. And in some ways it can be a very good thing because it is
helping us progress and it can help us break down stereotypes and it
can help break homophobia by talking about it and really exploring
it. But in some ways it perpetuates the separateness of it. By
talking about it all the time, and pointing it out and slanting
articles about it all the time, you're keeping people separated.”
“The thing I'm trying to do with my
music is it's not gay, it's not straight, it's not black or white,
it's not man or woman, it's sort of just human,” he added.
