Adam Lambert on sexuality in the music industry: 'The landscape is different now'

Back in 2012, Adam Lambert became the first openly gay artist to have an album top the Billboard 200 chart and he has now revealed that the public and the media's attitudes towards sexuality have changed so much since he burst onto the scene as an 'American Idol' finalist 6 years ago. 

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the hitmaker explained that while he was "happy to be a part of that movement" he is glad that society is more accepting now and coming out doesn't have to be such a 'big deal':

"It's really interesting because I think so much has changed in the past six years. The landscape is entirely different than when I first came on to the scene. We have artists who are out and it's not a big deal and it's not something that the media is blowing out of proportion either, which is nice to see."

"Now what's exciting is kind of like, it's implied. I feel like we don't have to harp on it all the time. People are ready to move forward and just be people."
