I have crushes on women all the time.
– Adam Lambert
I’m not a babysitter.
A lot of my male vocal influences are British – people like David Bowie, Freddie Mercury and Robert Plant.
I think you kind of have to put yourself out there.
So pretty much, to sum it up, if you can freak someone out and bring that kind of emotion out of somebody with a song, you’re doing something right.
Nowadays in pop, there’s not a lot of men that are singing big and loud and high – it’s not as common as it once was.
Conforming is not cool.
After my tour I had time to stay at home, be with my boyfriend and hang out with friends and that brought me down to earth and helped me write music from a more relaxed place.
I breeze through Twitter – I look at the mentions, the pictures, the videos.
Wait a minute, I’m a fan of yours; you can’t be a fan of mine!
I think Lady Gaga is great and is changing pop music and bringing back a certain rock ‘n’ roll spirit, swagger to the game.
I think the British audience might be more open-minded with some of my imagery and weird choices.
I nitpick details.
I worked at Starbucks when I was 16… It was all right.
My M.O. is just do what you do and don’t feel like you have to make apologies for it. I’m sure there will come a point when I have to apologize for something, but not yet.
There’s a certain level of pageantry with ‘Idol,’ and in order to work the show, you kind of have to feed into it.
There’s no regrets for me.
I’ve been known to make out with girls from time to time. Couple drinks involved, you know. It’s fun. And who knows? Maybe it’ll go further someday. I don’t know.
I was really beating myself up about performances and how I looked and this and that.
I don’t feel closeted.
Coming up with something new and original is so exciting.
I wanted the focus to be on my ability as a singer and as an entertainer – not on my private life.
I think theatricality is just one way of performing. I don’t think it’s a better way or the way, but it’s my way.
I am who I am.
I didn’t feel attractive in high school.
I am gay, and I’m very comfortable with it.
Bowie’s been a huge influence on me.
I love myself and I am a good person.
I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.
I have nothing to hide.
