Adam Lambert Covers Instinct, Ponders Gay Fanbase

Adam Lambert Instinct Cover

Adam Lambert covers Instinct, looking as faboo as ever. He really does have a great head o’ hair and whoever taught him how to line his eyes in sooty black kohl had mad skills.

While we know Glambert is stylish and is a rarity, being openly gay while signed to a major label, he is not with a massive gay fanbase. That’s what Instinct sought to discuss with the singer. Why hasn’t the LGBT community embraced Lambert and his music more fully?

Can he forgive them their ‘Trespassing,’ pun intended?

Well, the ‘Better Than I Know Myself’ crooner has a theory about his lack of sizable gay following.

“As a community, we’re a little bit resistant to a gay male pop star ourselves,” Lambert said. “It’s very easy for people to look at my origin, which is ‘American Idol,’ and automatically assume that I’m a commercial sellout or a puppet or a flash in the pan. I don’t think I’m any of those things.”

He continued, offering a gender-specific theory, saying, “There’s something weird there. We’re very eager to celebrate a strong female. But to celebrate a fellow gay man — it gets catty sometimes.” He does have a point…

Still, Lambert hopes that the music contained within ‘Trespassing’ will pull the gay community to his lair this time out. “This is the kind of music I listen to,” he declared. “I know the style of vocal I have is kind of big. It has a certain edge to it. I’ve always loved rock, but I also love stuff that is more groove-based, more funky, more soulful, more dance music.”

That’s exactly why Glambert is not a flash in the pan or a puppet!
