American Idol: Adam Lambert teases new album & admits he doesn’t mind protests over his LGBT views
Adam Lambert has refused to give much away when it comes to his brand new album.
The former American Idol contestant is currently working on the follow up to his chart topping record Trespassing, which was released in 2012 and became a hit around the world but he doesn’t want to give too much away about what he’s planning just yet.
The handsome star is playing his cards very close to his chest on this one and told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that while he has ideas on what sound he’s going to pursue and what direction he will take with his new songs, he doesn’t want to vocalise them just yet. He said:
“I do have an idea [of the next album's sound], but I’m not gonna tell ya.”
Lambert was speaking to the newspaper in advance of a planned concert during Pittsburgh Pridefest on Saturday (June 15). Lambert has long been an advocate of LGBT rights and issues and has thrown his weight behind many charitable campaigns and organisations that work with the community. The ‘For Your Entertainment’ hitmaker revealed that it’s important for him to use his fame and celebrity status to do something positive in the world and explained:
“I feel like with celebrity and visibility and fame, there’s a responsibility to try to give back and try to use the visibility for the greater good. It’s not all about me. It’s about trying to raise awareness and getting people to take action. I’m fortunate to have a really cool fan base and they want to be involved.”
In another interview with KDKA Radio’s Joe DeStio Lambert was asked what he thinks of the frequent protests that take place outside his concerts and appearances. He is often targeted by people who disagree with his views on and advocacy for the LGBT community, but Adam doesn’t mind.
When DeStio asked him how that affected him, Lambert laughed:
“Just between me and you, I think it’s a little bit fun.”
