Adam Lambert reveals the difficulties of being a gay idol
Adam Lambert has revealed that many gay guys would never dress like him, even though he feels like he often falls into a gay stereotype.
Talking to Fiasco magazine, Lambert stated: “For the general audience, they look at the way I style myself and they go ‘Errrr, that’s gay,’ but you ask a handful of gay guys and they’re like ‘I would never wear that!’”
Further elaborating about modern culture of men looking after their looks, he said: “The way I look at it, there’s just as much pressure [on men], but men aren’t supposed to talk about it. It’s supposed to seem easy, but men, especially in the public eye, are just as worried as women are.”
“Those shows I did with Queen were pretty surreal. I was really excited and super flattered, but intimidated at the same time. How do you live up to some like Freddie Mercury?
There was no way I could ever compete with him. I had to let that go and create an experience of paying tribute.”
