Queen's Brian May: 'Adam Lambert was stopped from winning 'American Idol' by a huge anti-gay lobby'
Adam Lambert is currently fronting the iconic rock band Queen and member Brian May has praised his role in the group, describing the superstar as 'fun' and injecting life back into their live performances.
Speaking to Britain's The Guardian newspaper recently, May explained that Lambert is a fantastic temporary addition to their line-up:
"He brings a lot of fun to the situation, the way Freddie did. In the old days, we were worried about everything being perfect. And now we have a real awareness that there aren’t many people out there playing completely live, so you treasure the mistakes you make.”
Referring to the time where a panel on Fox News’s 'The O’Reilly Factor' discussed pictures of Lambert locking lips with another man before the show's final, May explained that it was an unfair and ridiculous way of trying to turn people against him:
“You have to remember that Adam was stopped from winning American Idol by a huge anti-gay lobby."
