'Britain's Got Talent' Star Jamie Lambert Of Collabro: 'I'm Gay'
British boy band Collabro had a bit of a viral moment on this side of the pond when they brought Britain's Got Talent judges to their feet with their impressive collaborative vocals! And now the group stands to garner a few more fans now that Collabro member Jamie Lambert (pictured, far right) has revealed he's gay.
Lambert spoke with The Sun on his sexuality, saying:
“No one asked — I have nothing to hide from anybody. I think it’s really important that all gay people in the public eye just talk about it. The more that happens, the more normal it becomes...I remember when Stephen Gately from Boyzone came out and it was a really massive deal...But I think nowadays it’s about being comfortable in your own skin and comfortable with who you fall in love with. It doesn’t make a difference whether it’s with a man or a woman...It’s only an aspect of me, just like it’s only an aspect of [his Collabro bandmates] that they’re straight. It’s not all of who I am. I would hate for people to see me as ‘the gay one’, rather than the one who sings that line.”
