Adam Lambert confident Australia will accept same-sex marriage soon

Adam Lambert thinks it is only a matter of time until Australia legalises same-sex marriage.

The country has not yet accepted gay marriage and it is currently in the midst of a debate about the issue.

Speaking to Australia's Kyle and Jackie O radio show, Lambert expressed his confidence that the country will soon allow it - despite the apparent resistance from Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

He said: "I'm sure it will happen. I've always thought of Australia as such a progressive place, so liberal.

"The attitudes here from what I have experienced towards anybody who's alternative with their sexuality or lifestyle seems pretty open. So I'm sure it will come around soon."

In the same interview, the US star gently criticised host Jackie O for suggesting that Lambert could date fellow openly gay man Ricky Martin.

He said: "That’s so silly...'Oh a gay guy and another gay guy, oh you must date', come on."
