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.”




Adam Lambert recently toured across the globe with Queen, and he revealed to Fiasco that is definitely feeling the pressure:

“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.”
