Queen’s live performance vocalist, Adam Lambert, recently posted a series of tweets on his Twitter account and reacted to the negative comments that Lil Nas X received upon the release of his controversial music video for Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ due to which he was accused of blasphemy and devil worship.

As you know, Adam Lambert is one of the musicians who are the most vocal considering their support for LGBTQIA+ rights. He even launched a foundation in 2019 named Feel Something Foundation which aims to ensure that the charities which support individuals within the LGBTQ+ community, who are facing numerous issues, are being assisted.

As you may have heard, the famous rapper and songwriter Lil Nas X released his latest song ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ on March 26, 2021, and it’s safe to say that the song has created a lot of controversy. While some people argue that it’s a valuable expression of queerness through Christian symbolism in relation to the usual ‘you’re going to hell’ claim, others accused Lil Nas X of blasphemy, sacrilege, and devil worship.

That was the point that Adam Lambert chimed in and said that he’s actually ‘excited for the explosion ⁦Lil Nas X has created with his video.’ He said that he found it ‘challenging and symbolic’ and appreciated the fact that it touches on sensitive issues. After seeing the numerous tweets attacking Lil Nas X for his latest release Adam Lambert felt the need to talk about this matter some more.

Adam Lambert said that while people are shocked and disgusted to see Lil Nas X giving ‘The Devil’ a lap dance, they didn’t bat an eyelash at movies such as Hellboy, Good Omens, The Devil’s Advocate, or Rosemary’s Baby in which the main character sleeps with Satan and bears his child. Lambert went on to say that celebrating Halloween should also be considered blasphemy and stated that what Satan represents there is an archetype.’

Here’s what Adam Lambert said in his first tweet:

“I’m so excited for the explosion ⁦Lil Nas X has created with his video. It’s been a long time coming but it just came all over us. It’s challenging and symbolic and pushes buttons. How refreshing. Great article Variety! (But also… fuck my drag right?)”

Here’s what he said he said in his follow-up tweet:

“Did any of the people shocked and disgusted by his video see the movie Hellboy? Good Omens. What about The Devils Advocate? What about Rosemary’s Baby? The Witches of Eastwick? Better yet…. do you celebrate Halloween? Come on ….. it’s an Archetype.”
