Singer Adam Lambert said turning 40 was “a little scary” as he was preparing for a milestone birthday later this month.
However, a US entertainer who gained fame after winning second place at the American Idol show in 2009 told Attitude magazine that he was embracing the imminent change.
“Sure, I have Peter Pan Syndrome, so 40 is a little scary,” he said.
“That said, I’m personally moving to the next chapter now. It’s exciting.”
The star admitted that he didn’t know how to celebrate the January 29th event, saying, “I have no plans for the 40th time yet. I’m going to do something with my friends.”
For 13 years since being an idol, Lambert has established himself as an international star, co-starring with rock band Queen and selling millions of albums.
Born in Indianapolis, the performer became the first openly gay artist to top the US Billboard album charts at Trespass in 2012.
He recently compared being openly gay in the music industry 10 years ago with “Wild West.”
Lambert told the magazine:
“I don’t know. It may be different. As we get older, identity priorities and mysteries decrease.
“That’s one of the reasons why the new generation is so excited about gender pronouns and names. They’re in the process of becoming the ones they want to be. That’s what you do in your teens and twenties.”
Lambert also describes how gender attitudes have changed since he was young.
“Before entering the music scene, I remember that only drag queens made up at gay clubs in LA.
“Drugs were very small. It wasn’t in the industry. I liked the look, expressiveness, and substitutability, so I always liked to make up.”
