Adam Lambert claims that Madonna is ‘being p****d on’ because of her music, and not for her sexual antics.
Rather, the 37-year-old believes the Queen of Pop is suffering a setback due to her recent musical output.
The 60-year-old pop icon released her latest studio album, Madame X, this month, but Adam believes the material on the album ‘doesn’t fall quite in line with her legacy’.
Speaking to The Independent, Adam said: ‘I’m a long-time Madonna fan for sure – but here’s my question: does she? Or is she getting a pushback because of the music she’s making?
‘I love that she reinvents herself. I love her, and I think she’s brilliant. And I do think she’s p****d upon a bit, but I don’t think it’s because she’s a strong sexual woman.
‘I think it’s because she’s making the music of 2019 that doesn’t fall quite in line with her legacy, perhaps.’
But Adam still has love for the singer, later adding: ‘But I have to give it to her that she’s going for it, and she’s ballsy and she’s confident.’
The singer is speaking from the heart as a true fan, but he has also revealed that he would never make music to please anybody.
‘I never want to turn around and realise that a project I’m working on is me trying too hard to be trendy or cool or young or any of those things’, he admitted.
‘At the end of the day, I’m gonna sleep better at night knowing I made an album I like that’s true to my experience.
‘Everyone has their own relationship with their own career and the music industry, but personally, I’ve played the game. I’m not done playing it.
‘My music is still pop music – but it’s over here. It’s in my world, and I feel good about that.’
Adam’s latest single New Eyes is out now. His fourth studio album Velvet is due for release in September.
