In a videotaped interview with the fashion magazine, Lambert, who is openly gay, said he appreciates beautiful women.

“My band, we were walking through the airport, and so many times they were like, 'Oh my god, did you see that girl? She's so hot.' And I was like, 'Yeah, she's beautiful. She's really beautiful.'”

“I'm glad they're entertained,” Lambert said. “And, you know what, I appreciate beautiful women. I love beautiful everything. So, if someone looks amazing, I'm like, 'Yeah, cool.'”

The Whataya Want From Me singer added that his international tour has taught him that music brings people together.

“I think there's something the same about all the different countries and people as opposed to something different. And I think the more we focus on how we are alike, I think the better off we are, in general.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)
