Adam Lambert revealed in an interview with Digital Spy that the music industry still has a stigma against gay men singing about men in love songs.
“There’s only so much you can do as an artist,” the singer told Digital Spy. “Luckily we’re in a moment right now with streaming where there’s more power put back into the artist’s and audience’s hands.
“But the gatekeepers who make a lot of the other big decisions in the music industry, those are the ones hardest to convince on certain things. That’s the reasoning for some of that pronoun stuff,” Lambert continued.
However, Lambert says he is seeing a shift in attitude when it comes to letting LGBT artists express themselves.
“I think there have been a lot of things in general that have shifted within the LGBT community and mainstream acceptance,” Lambert says.
“People are becoming less ignorant and the younger generation that’s coming up right now are like, ‘So what?’ That’s melting into and affecting pop culture in general,” Lambert continued.
Lambert is currently on his The Original High world tour.
