Adam Lambert speaks about being a gay male pop star
Adam Lambert has spoken out about being a gay male pop star, suggesting the gay community is sometimes a little "catty" when it comes to celebrating male success.
Speaking to Instinct magazine in a cover interview, Lambert said that he feels the gay community sometimes is a little "resistant" to gay male popstars.
He added that whilst he feels the community is happy to celebrate "strong females", it isn't always the case when it comes to men. He said:
"As a community, we're a little bit resistant to a gay male pop star ourselves. It's very easy for people to look at my origin, which is American Idol, and automatically assume that I’m a commercial sellout or a puppet or a flash in the pan. I don't think I'm any of those things. There's something weird there. We're very eager to celebrate a strong female. But to celebrate a fellow gay man – it gets catty sometimes."
