Adam Lambert: ‘If [Freddie Mercury] were alive today, I have a feeling he would be out and proud without giving a f**k’

Adam Lambert is once again touring with the surviving members of Queen this summer and thinks his being gay ‘kind of completes the equation.’

That’s because he is stepping in as lead singer for the late Freddie Mercury who was also gay.

‘One of the things that made Freddie special was this part of his personality and if he were alive today, I have a feeling he would be out and proud without giving a fuck,’ Lambert tells Flaunt.

‘It inspired some of his music. Whether he was wrestling with that part of himself or owning it and being proud, I don’t think he would have been the dynamic performer that he was if he didn’t have that conflict in his life.’

Mercury died in 1991 at age 45 due to complications from AIDS. He had confirmed the day before his death that he had contracted the disease.

This is something Lambert has discussed at length with surviving Queen band members Brian May and Roger Taylor.

‘I’ve really wracked their brains about their experiences with Freddie,’ he says.

‘At the time people didn’t know much about the disease but I heard from them that Freddie was very much like, “I’m not going to let this ruin my life.”’

Knowing this, Lambert thinks about Mercury’s defiance when it comes time to perform the power-ballad The Show Must Go On during the shows.

‘It’s so poignant and dramatic because all of the lyrics are like, “I’ve got to go on. I’m not going to let this stop me” and in order to make it work, you have to kind of go there,’ Lambert says.

‘Singing it takes everything in me. Sometimes I’m dizzy when it’s over.’


Ellen DeGeneres, Adam Lambert, Charlie Carver & other celebs reach out after Manchester bombing

The explosion after a Ariana Grande concert in Manchester yesterday sent many LGBT celebrities to social media to express their shock and condolences.

There have been 22 people confirmed dead and more than 50 others injured in the horrific incident that is being investigated as a terrorist attack.

Arrow and Torchwood star John Barrowman shared his thoughts via Instagram video as he watched the news unfold on television.

‘It’s horrible,’ Barrowman said.

‘My thoughts are with everyone in Manchester … I just want to say we’re all thinking about you.’

Lance Bass thought about all of the young fans who were at Manchester Arena and wrote: ‘My heart aches for the victims and their families in England tonight. I can’t fathom how anyone can hurt innocent children.’

Teen Wolf and Desperate Housewives alum Charlie Carver is broken-hearted about it all and had this to say: ‘No matter how barbarous hate and violence can be, love will win.’

Manchester England our thoughts are with you. Jb

Tuesday Morning Man: Manu Ginobili!

While doing my cardio at the gym last night, this sexy guy flashed on the screen. He’s San Antonio Spurs player Manu Ginobili and he may have been playing his last game in the NBA. He was sent out with a standing ovation. Ginobili has been fielding countless questions in recent days about whether he plans to return for a 16th season. A four-time NBA champion with two All-Star appearances, Ginobili is an unrestricted free agent, and it’s unclear whether he’ll be a Spur in 2017-18. He says he hasn’t yet made up his mind about whether to return or not. “Whatever I decide to do, I’ll be a happy camper.,’ he said after the game. ‘I have to choose between two wonderful, truly wonderful options. One is to keep playing in this league at this age, enjoying every day, playing the sport I still love. The other one is to stay at home, be a dad, travel more, enjoy my family. Whatever it is, it’s two unbelievable options. So there is no way I can be sad, because whatever I decide, it’s going to be great.”

Celeb Instagram: Jake Shears & Judith Light! Ellen & Andy! Charlie Carver! Billy Gillman!

Last night I had the honor to sing for the High Queen Priestess that is Judith Light, one of my absolute heroes. She was being recognized by the Eugene O'Neill with the Monte Cristo award. It was beyond special to get to surprise her and always a blast to blow the roof off an unsuspecting room. Also, I realized it was the first time I'd performed my own songs in front of an audience in years, two of them for the first time ever. If only you could know how delicious the whole thing felt. I love you @judithlight , you are warm fire that brings comfort to so many. I can only hope that someday I'm a fraction as plugged-in as you are.

See Emmy winners Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith of ‘Days of Our Lives’ together again!

We won’t be seeing Chandler Massey back on Days of Our Lives until the end of summer but the actor is already back at work as Will Horton. Spotted this cool little video of Massey at lunch with Freddie Smith who plays his husband Sonny Kiriakis and Christopher Sean who plays Paul Narita. I’m certain Will’s return from the dead will come amid a love triangle between Will, Sonny and Paul. I’ll start watching regularly again then. The show really lost me when they changed the character of Will into an absolute dolt then killed him off when he was played by Guy Wilson. I’m figuring the producers would not have brought Massey back to the role unless we were going to get the old thoughtful and emotionally intelligent Will back.

Having lunch with some great people… @fmsmith319 @therealcmassey @scott_mathison_ @mrchristophersean You know these guys?…

Civil rights icon Harvey Milk was born 87 years ago today: ‘Hope will never be silent’

Harvey Milk was just 48 years old and had been a gay rights activist for less than a decade when he was murdered inside San Francisco City Hall.
But what a legacy he left behind.

Born 87 years ago today, Milk was the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in California as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.

He fought hard against discrimination – including Proposition 6, a ballot initiative that would have made firing gay teachers—and any public school employees who supported gay rights—mandatory. It lost by a million votes.

As a supervisor, Milk was responsible for passing a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city but just 11 months into his term, he and Mayor George Moscone were murdered at City Hall by former Supervisor Dan White.

Today is Harvey Milk Day – a day to celebrate Milk’s story, message and legacy to give hope and inspire disenfranchised communities.


Dame Julie Andrews: ‘I don’t think there’s been a time when I haven’t been [an LGBT ally]‘

Since her iconic films The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Victor/Victoria and Thoroughly Modern Millie have brought Julie Andrews legions of gay fans over the decades, it’s nice to know she loves us right back. Dame Andrews, 81, was asked by The Advocate when she first realized she was an LGBT ally. “That’s hard to answer, because, just always!” Andrews replied. “Theater, anyway, is such an open community and free. I don’t think there’s been a time when I haven’t been [an ally].”

“I have to say, though, in my hometown, in my community, I was very aware of bias and bigotry, and couldn’t understand it,” Andrews continued. “I was raised not to be that way and not to think that way, and it always seemed puzzling to me that the world wasn’t just embracing human beings. But it’s never been something that I stumbled on. It’s just always been innate, thanks I think to the professions that I am in. But also the way I was raised.”


Cher, 71, steals the show at Billboard Music Awards

I absolutely love that #IconCher is trending on Twitter because it means the greatest of gay icons is getting her due. At the age of 71, the ageless Cher showed up looking and sounding much like she did when she was 41. She performed two of her biggest hits Believe and If I Can Turn Back Time wearing terrific wigs and outfits and showed the world that somehow she’s still at the top of her game. Sometimes I wish Cher had made more movies but in the end she has been right to focus on live performing. It really is what she does best and is as good as she ever was. She doesn’t need to turn back time – she’s still got it! (Will post video of her performance later today. For now, here is her acceptance speech after being presented with Billboard’s Icon Award.)

Monday Morning Man: Novak Djokovic!

Winning the French Open last year seems like both the best and worst thing to have happened to Novak Djokovic’s career. It cemented his status as an all-time great and one of the few men to have won all four grand slam titles at least once. Novak has also won six Australian Opens, three Wimbledons and two US Opens. But he seems to have lost motivation since that epic win in Paris nearly a year ago. Now ranked number two – and a shaky number two at that – Novak turns 30 today and heads into Paris to defend his title having lost in the final of the Italian Open yesterday to 20-year-old Alexander Zverev. He will be coached by 1999 French Open champ Andre Agassi in Paris as he tries to recapture his winning ways.

Bette Midler is the toast of Broadway with her Tony Award-nominated performance in Hello, Dolly! What’s nice to see in this CBS Sunday Morning interview with Gayle King is that Bette is having such a good time. She looks just terrific at 71 and in her first musical on Broadway in 50 years!

Watch Patti LuPone’s epic rant against Donald Trump: ‘He’s certifiably insane and he has compromised this country’

Miss Patti LuPone took Madonna down a few weeks ago and now it’s Donald Trump’s turn. Here is what the seven-time Tony nominee and two-time winner has to say about the man: “He’s a fucking-ass motherfucking asshole. He’s a fucking nut and he should be—he’s certifiably insane and he has compromised this country, and it is tantamount to treason what he just did. And why are we not doing anything about it? Why is it taking so long? What the fuck is going on in this country?”

Showtune Sunday: Songs of Stephen Schwartz!

Last night, three-time Oscar winner and three-time Grammy winner Stephen Schwartz was honored at the Gay Men’s Chorus of LA’s Voice Awards. I got to chat with him a bit and he was just terrific! He is the composer of such hit musicals as Godspell, Pippin and Wicked and contributed lyrics for a number of successful films, including Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Prince of Egypt and Enchanted. Here are some of his songs being performed throughout the years. Enjoy!
