American Idol's favorite glam star has an album coming up, but even better, the superstar is in love!
"I've tried to keep that somewhat sacred, as far as that privacy. It's the one thing I have, you know?" Lambert shares. "I think that's not uncommon. A lot of people try to keep that private, but the good news is that I am in love, so that's a good place to be. It's a great time to be making music, I'll tell you."
His Behind the Music special will be airing this weekend on VH1, and he said his post-Idol life has at times been difficult.
"I think a lot of the controversies that have surrounded my experience.... I think part of the reason why they're controversies is because I don't always get to communicate my point of view or where I was coming from, and I think the special really allows me to do that," Lambert says.
"One of the things I find a little interesting is how much people want to focus on my sexuality. To this day, I guess, I'm starting to understand it more and more - that it's just something that people find interesting.
"To me, it's not something I think about actively. I struggled with my identity when I was a teenager, right before I came out. That was a very hard time to deal with that.
"I've had a couple moments in my career where there's been some hiccups, but other than that I've had a pretty easy time with it," he admitted. "And it's funny how much people sensationalize it, especially in the media. But that's entertainment."
Adam said with a new love, writing music has been easy, and hopes this album "will give people a little more insight into both my positive side and my negative side. Things that are really happy and joyful and things that are a little bit sad and haunting."
