Out singer-songwriter Adam Lambert
covers the February issue of UK LGBTQ glossy Attitude.
In the accompanying interview, Lambert
is interviewed by Boy George.
“Gender fluidity, sexual diversity
and Queen. Adam Lambert in conversation with Boy George,” reads the
On whether Queen will record new music,
Lambert, who is touring with the group, agrees with Boy George that
it could be “great” but sounds skeptical.
“The only time we ever get asked that

George responded. “When I do a drawing of someone, I don’t copy

for me to say, but you’re amazing, they’re amazing – it can

“Of course, that’s the most

that. On the other hand, I wouldn’t want to let anybody down, to

Lambert also discussed his untitled

who’s a bit obscure,” Lambert explained. “Writing music for
someone else’s story has been really interesting. It takes place in
the 70s. I love that era. I’ll be putting out an album, linked to
the musical. A concept album, where I’m performing it.”
Queen + Adam Lambert tour dates in the
UK begin in May.
