Adam Lambert Interview In GQ Magazine (UK): Adam's "Firsts" "Adam Lambert: ‘The first time I experienced homophobia was in the theatre world’" And MORE

Adam tweeted about this article, and it's a GREAT ONE!!! (see his tweet about it at the bottom of this thread, including the tweet from GQ as well).

"Every week, we ask one band or artist a set of quick-fire questions that all start with ‘the first’, from their first shows and paycheques to the first time they fell in love. Up this week is Adam Lambert, the American Idol contestant turned adopted Queen frontman, who covers everything from the first time he got drunk to what it's like being a gay icon"

Adam Lambert: ‘The first time I experienced homophobia was in the theatre world’

Excerpt from the interview: Be sure to read the entire article, as there are so many more "firsts" discussed
GQ: The first time you threw a punch and meant it...

Adam: “I'm not really a fighter but I've gotten into a couple of fights. The first big, real fight I got into was in high school and I think it was justified. I was in PE, there was this kid who was kind of a bully and he started to taunt my buddy, the girl I was besties with in the class. Anyway, she told him off and he smacked her in the face. I was raised to believe that you don't hit a girl like that. I mean don't hit anybody, but a man hitting a woman is not OK. I just got so mad. It was the first time I ever felt rage, like that fiery feeling in my chest. I was on autopilot, it was primal, walking towards him, I didn't even know what I was doing. He was like ‘Oh, what you gonna do?’ And I just decked him. I hit him so hard in the face and it felt really good. My PE teacher – who I suspect might have been gay – said she wouldn't write me up for it because she knew the guy was an asshole who had it coming, ‘But you can't tell anybody I said that.’”

I love this pic with Pharaoh! Just look at his stance, he is such a regal dog.

Patria said...

OMG! First reaction is I lLOVE this pic of Adam and Pharaoh. Especially the suit. No to go back and read.

Beautiful both celebrities!

Nanbert said...

Love the article! It's very real and human. Adam is very disarming.

Anybody notice, in that photo with Pharoah, Adam's gloves coordinate with Pharoah's color? Can there be any doubt that it's on purpose? I'm sure it is...that's Adam for you!... The consumate artist!

I predict that Adam will be offered an original acting role at some point. A role that is suited perfectly for him. He has some acting skills, good comic timing, a natural sense of character. I hope it happens.

Dee R Gee said...

This was a very insightful interview. We learned that Adam has auditioned for some acting roles, only to be told he was too gay. Like I said above, I think there will be an original role for him at some point. I also was surprised to learn that he threw a major punch at a guy. So out of Adam's character, but he sure felt justified, and he didn't get in trouble. VERY good interview!

@Dee R Gee
I really do hope that everyone takes the time to read the interview and see what Adam's responses were.. So interesting and as you say, some insights into his past, and as a result we learn a little more about him... Even after 10 years as a fan, I'm always fascinated to learn more about him..

Dee R Gee, there's a biopic about Elvis in the pipeline (rolls eyes). :-)
