Queen + Adam Lambert’s stage frontman and also known as one the most talented new-age stars, Adam Lambert, was recently interviewed by ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ and talked about the ups and downs of the LGBT+ community in the music industry.
According to his statements on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Adam Lambert seems hopeful about the things that have changed for LGBTQ+ and gay stars since he participated in ‘American Idol’ in 2009.
Adam also stated that there were always ups and downs about the gay artists in the industry but after he made his debut in the show, much progress has been made. While being positive at all, Adam also did not hesitate to warn people about the problems and the things that should be done in near future.
Here is what Adam Lambert said:
“I remember coming off of Idol and going into the mainstream music industry, label system, and them just — even if they were excited themselves, there were a lot of question marks. There was a lot of fear like, ‘Is this gonna sell? Is this gonna work?’
And, as you know, that’s the name of the game for the commercial music business. It’s a business. It was a bit of a struggle to kind of hold my ground and keep focused on my part of the deal, which is being the artist and the musician, being the guy that wears those weird shoes.”
“It was a lot of ups and downs, but I’m really thankful for my experience. And I think that the world has changed. I think we’re in a place now — within the music industry, within the entertainment industry, and in the world — where yes, there’s still discrimination, there are still problems, there’s still work to be done, but there has been so much progress made.
