Adam Lambert: ‘The first time I experienced homophobia was in the theatre world’ – “Funny as it sounds it, probably within the theatre world. I would be auditioning to play parts such as the romantic young leading man and it was hard because there was a lot of homophobia in casting.

Dave Stewart on What Sets ‘Songland’ Apart From the Reality TV Music Pack – But then the Eurythmics were managed by Simon Fuller for a period in the late ’90s. And I knew Simon Fuller before that and he created Pop Idol, which became American Idol. So I was around a lot. And even though that wasn’t my cup of tea, and the singing competitions are not really my cup of tea, but every now and then there would be somebody you could tell they could be an artist. Then mainly you saw younger artists who decided to go on there but they actually wrote songs. – Read more at Billboard
