Adam Lambert reveals the controversy caused by his gender-fluid album cover


The openly gay singer who now rocks the stage as a guest vocalist of Queen, used to be very glamorous at the very beginning of his career – the name of his fandom (GLAMberts) spoke for itself. And this glamour often included things which are not stereotypically considered masculine – nail polish, eye liner and so on. Taking to Instagram, he tweeted two alternate covers for his debut album For Your Entertainment. Adam says that the first variant of the cover, on which Adam is depicted with a makeup on and looks quite gender-fluid, was rejected by the retailers who said they would not sell a CD with a cover like that. Instead a second more conservative cover was produced but even on this one Adam still has a makeup on. “Anniversary of my first official album For Your Entertainment ! I was feelin my gender fluid (and fully photoshopped) glam rock fantasy. The powers that be released a second cover for retailers who felt ‘uncomfortable’ w the original. (Even though i was still fully painted),” Adaam says, addinbg that now he laughs at it, but then it was a totally different situation.
