Adam Lambert doesn’t want sexuality to overshadow his music

HollywoodNews.com: Adam Lambert’s sexuality has been a topic of conversation since his ‘American Idol’ days, and while talking about it doesn’t bother him, he hopes that it doesn’t overshadow his work.

Lambert states that he understands all the talk about it because there are “very few openly gay artists,” states The Hollywood Gossip. However, he worries that it may be too much of a topic of conversation because matters like this are often sensationalized by others.

Luckily, he doesn’t always have to worry about being asked about his sexuality: “When I’m abroad, people mostly ask me why they talk about it so much in the U.S.!”

Do you think Adam Lambert’s music would be overshadowed by his sexuality?

    Not in my eyes. Adam’s talent far exceeds any other thought, but I do get tired of the media asking him about it ALL THE TIME!! He is a gifted vocal artist, an amazing performer, gorgeous and a style icon – who cares about who he sleeps with??? I don’t, I love his voice.

    It is Adam’s voice that is important firstly,then his showmanship. He is such a kind supportive person to his friends, Fantastic to his fans-so giving and caring. If a man who spreads the message of love to everyone is critised because of who he happens to sleep with behind closed doors then something is seriously wrong. That is the business of Adam and his partner not us..We are not obsessed with the sexuality of straight celebrities so why should it be an issue with Adam. I fail to understand why it is so big an issue to so many people.,what are they scared of.Gay people are just people. Leave him alone in regard to sex and concentrate on the real talent that he is.That’s what sets him apart from the reat.

    I believe a very large portion of Adam’s fans are females who love him gay or straight. He is the most talented, sexiest man on the planet! His German and Amsterdam concerts were outstanding because he was free to be himself. All you have to do is view the videos and you will see that the audiences were on fire. Adam was at his “over the top” best!!!
    Yes, I think it’s an uphill climb for him in the U.S. because he is openly gay but he has accomplished so much in the last year and he will continue to be a groundbreaker.
    Just wish RCA would f_____g wake up and promote him more. Are they blind? Every few days another country makes the news with a Lambert single at the top of their charts.
    Love a comment I read about him at the Jingle Ball “He looks like a panther in a cage”.

    The only thing that overshadlow s Adam’s music is not his sexual orientation but his notness, sexiness, and general overall swoon-inducing stage moves! He is SEXY! Whew!

    His “Hotness” I meant in prior email — spelling error! He’s HOT!

    Adam is outstanding talented, charismatic and gorgeous. It is almost impossible to believe that his sexuality will ever take over his career. Why ? Because there are million of gay people but ONLY ONE ADAM in this world!
    However, I find such topic of of conversation VERY DISRESPECTFUL and I really think that Adam does not deserve such treatment.
    As far as I am concerned, American Idol runner-up and especially sexuality must be avoided in any interview with Adam.

    In the US, I do think his musicality is often overshadowed by his sexuality, not only in society at large (have you ever read some of the comment sections of mainstream entertainment websites about him), but also in the media and the music industry — especially amongst radio programmers. Our culture seems to fear or hate gay sexuality and want our gay public figures to be “safe” like Neil Patrick Harris (who while a gifted comedic actor is by no stretch of the imagination sexual and in fact plays a heterosexual male slut on tv). Adam is not “safe” to many in our culture because he does not hide his sexuality and he confounds conservative notions not only of homosexuality but of female sexuality — how often do those same comments sections express incredulity that women find Adam sexually attractive? The appreciation and downright lust female fans feel for and express about Adam is confusing, confounding and threatening. To many — including the media — he is at best viewed like an exotic wild creature — something best seen from a distance and at worst viewed as a dangerous wild animal who must be contained (and kept off our airwaves).

    Adam is not only hot, supremely talented, gorgeous, enlightened, intelligent, he is the quintessential ALPHA MALE, and to some that is so threatening. It is so sad that a country that spouts off, all men are created equal, and land of the free, make such a mockery of these words by there selfish fears. America should be so proud they have produced such a talent like Adam plus he, being classy, well spoken and humble and honest to a fault, all the things that they say they value. NO one chooses to be gay, no one chooses to be straight, you are just born that way and to condemn someone for the way the Universe made them is not only so ignorant but arrogant. Who are they to judge. Grow up people and celebrate the world, it is everyones home.

    Questions such as yours, Ms. Sullivan, are a mere petty annoyance and not worthy of worry or discussion. Adam is nominated for a Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. Think about that for a minute and you will have answered your own impertinent question.
