“On the Swedish EDM star’s latest club killer, Adam Lambert unleashes a full-on house-diva wail over Chic guitarist, Nile Rodgers’ ultra crisp licks and Avicii’s sleek synth lines. It’s like if Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” had a little brother. Get those hands in the air, people!”

Thanks for the follow ! We have to say, this is our absolute 2nd favorite version of 's ;)

EQ Commentary: LGBT Equality Or Just A Really Good Show? The Macklemore VMAs Gay Debate -


EQ Commentary: LGBT Equality Or Just A Really Good Show? The Macklemore VMAs Gay Debate 

by Raj Rudolph 

Every year, there is always something on the MTV Video Music Awards that really toasts my goose. This year was certainly no exception. And, believe it or not, it didn’t have anything to do with the nudesy, twerking and grinding Miley Cyrus mess or the under-hyped 90 seconds of deflated joy that was the N’SYNCreunion, but rather, it was actually the crowning of a new “LGBT Hero” that was bestowed upon Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for their pro-equality song and video for “Same Love”.
Ironic much huh? I’m a screaming liberal pro-equality fighter and I’m bitching about the pro-equality stance on the VMAs?! So why would this bother someone like me? Surely it’s a good thing for the LGBT equality movement right? Well yes, sort of, but not really. Let me explain…
First of all, let me just preface this commentary. I actually have nothing againstMacklemoreRyan Lewis and Mary Lambert for creating such an honest, poignant and culturally relevant track and video like “Same Love”. It deserves attention and high praise and it’s beyond fantastic that the message of equality is being spread like wildfire throughout the music buying public. It’s also surprisingly amazing that someone in the hip-hop community is finally standing up for us while we are still somewhat bruised from the lyrical lashes caused by the likes of Eminem and 50 Cent over the years. But, please keep in mind when reading this, my comments herein have nothing really to do with the song and video for “Same Love”, so please take that into consideration if you disagree with any of the points I am trying to convey. Also, if you are already reading this in an angry narrative, please shift to a neutral, calm narrative as that was the spirit in which this piece has been written.

The initial article that kickstarted what a small majority of us gays were actually thinking came from Flavorwire in which writer Tyler Coates summarised gay rapper Le1f’s Twitter tirade where he outright told Macklemore and co that“gay people don’t care about his song about gay people.
Although I found Le1f’s Twitter comments to be a little crass and bitter, he does have a point in which he’s calling out the intentions of the independent, superstar band to profit from the struggle of the LGBT community. I do believe the reason that he is tweeting all this primarily stems from the fact that the mainstream, commercial music industry rarely listens or promotes gay male artists and their art. In turn, Le1f’s poses the question – “Why should a white, straight rapper make millions from his track that isn’t any more special than any other gay anthem, written and performed by an actual gay artist?” To further add salt to the wound, the music industry elite then go on to bestow upon Macklemore a highly-coveted MTV music video award, literally turning him overnight into the “new face of equality”, something that the gay community really didn’t have a say in.
Before the 2013 MTV VMAs, I had never even heard “Same Love” and never even received one press release about it. Just sayin.
The problem here really is society, it’s not Macklemore at all. Gay male artists have tried for years to get the recognition that Macklemore received overnight as our “new LGBT hero”. Many gay male artists have had to hide their sexuality in the industry to even garner a sliver of respect and support in their pursuit of a career in music. Gay artists like George MichaelDarren Hayes and Ricky Martin hid their their sexuality altogether during their reign on the charts, waiting until the right moment to come out that wouldn’t equate to complete career suicide. It’s very brave and surprisingly difficult to pull something like that off with the spotlight following on your every move whilst you’re gracing the Billboard Hot 100.
On the other side of the coin, we have the gay trailblazers like Jake Shears ofScissor SistersSam Sparro and Adam Lambert who have had moderate mainstream commercial success whilst being out from the very beginning of their careers. But why doesn’t society raise and elevate these artists to VMA status for being honest and true to who they are from the beginning?Something is definitely off here when we only allow gay artists to elevate up to a certain point in the commercial mainstream, MTV / radio-friendly world of music.
I’d like to examine that if I may…

Last year Adam Lambert made one of THE defining gay anthems of our time – it’s called “Outlaws Of Love” and it’s one of those LGBT anthems that literally brings tears to my eyes, every time I see and hear him perform it. Most people would have deemed this track more than single-worthy. A lot of hardcore Adam Lambert fans would have supported this song as a potential single from“Trespassing”, with hopes of elevating Adam Lambert to the level of Freddie Mercury or Elton John. But why wasn’t “Outlaws Of Love” released as a single? It’s actually more poetic than Gaga’s “Born This Way” if you’ve ever heard it. Well we can only guess, but something tells me that Adam Lambertwould have loved RCA to have invested heavily into “Outlaws Of Love” as a single in 2012 – but they didn’t. Instead, they wanted him to make an album of 80′s cover songs which eventually led to leaving the label due to “creative differences”. You can’t say the boy didn’t try!
Adam Lambert was also actually in attendance at the 2013 VMAs in which he presented an “Artist To Watch” award to Austin Mahone for nothing more than having released his a mediocre song and video for “What About Love”.Meanwhile the LGBT equality show is going on in full effect at the VMAs withAdam Lambert not partaking. Instead MTV is crowning Macklemore with high praise for “Same Love” – bringing a straight rapper, a lesbian and a straight R&B superstar ally in way of Jennifer Hudson to perform the track to the world on international television. Everyone really, except a gay male artist was present during this LGBT equality show. But I guarantee you this, if Adam Lambert would have joined MacklemoreLewisMary Lambert and Jennifer Hudson during their performance of “Same Love”, the result would have had a much bigger impact.
Actually, if that happened, you wouldn’t be reading this article right now.........
........What it all boils down to is this…
Gay musicians have it the worst in the industry when seeking out mainstream success. If we want to celebrate gay equality in music, then let’s actually elevate our gay artists instead of keeping them on the sideline for fear of them being “too risky” or “too risque”. Sure, no one wants to see a leather and bondage or penis-ahoy on an internationally televised awards show, but instead of giving out awards to the straight allies, let’s start giving out awards and affording the same opportunities to gay artists that we give to female artists, hip-hop artists and those super rich straight boys who spin dance music from their computers.
Gay artists are the ones living with the struggle of equality everyday and they really are the true heroes in the LGBT music community. I think that’s what the opposition to this whole Macklemore/LGBT divide is really trying to say behind the bitchy tweets and the Twitter and Facebook wars with each other.
With “Same Love” by MacklemoreLewis and Mary Lambert getting the massive attention it’s getting right now, let’s just hope that it’s a stepping stone to opening the doors of acceptance for real gay artists. Maybe one day a gay artist will be able to take center stage at the VMAs, win a VMA and it will be ok. I welcome that day with an open heart. But let’s not forget the real trailblazers like Adam Lambert and Frank Ocean (who lost out on a VMA toChris Brown) who are really heroes for the LGBT community and who are actually gay too.
With over 72 million views of “Same Love” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, it’s not surprising at all to me that MTV and the music industry elite jumped on board their fast-moving independent train to Hitsville. There’s real money to be made there.
Having said all of this now, please know that I pose no shade to any of the aforementioned artists. It’s just the flip side of the coin and sometimes the unpopular side of the story needs to be told too for perspective.
For some gays, they are out there, fighting the fight, winning the real small battles for the gay rights movement and for other gays, they are just adapting to whatever freedoms society allows. I’ve never been an adapter, ever – it’s not a philosophy that I would ever subscribe to and that’s why I wrote this article.
You want to know the real winner of the VMAs and who should have been crowned “LGBT hero” – watch “She Keeps Me Warm” by Mary Lambert. It’s not getting near as much attention as her collaboration with Macklemore andLewis is getting but it’s a lot more brave and real than “Same Love” could ever hope to be.

All-in-all, “Same Love” is brilliant and I’m glad it’s out there, getting attention and helping the pro-equality cause.
What do you think?

VMA Peformance:


If I was gay, I would think hip-hop hates me
Have you read the YouTube comments lately?
"Man, that's gay" gets dropped on the daily
We become so numb to what we're saying
A culture founded from oppression
Yet we don't have acceptance for 'em
Call each other faggots behind the keys of a message board
A word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores it
Gay is synonymous with the lesser
It's the same hate that's caused wars from religion
Gender to skin color, the complexion of your pigment
The same fight that led people to walk outs and sit ins
It's human rights for everybody, there is no difference!
Live on and be yourself
When I was at church they taught me something else
If you preach hate at the service those words aren't anointed
That holy water that you soak in has been poisoned
When everyone else is more comfortable remaining voiceless
Rather than fighting for humans that have had their rights stolen
I might not be the same, but that's not important
No freedom till we're equal, damn right I support it

We press play, don't press pause
Progress, march on
With the veil over our eyes
We turn our back on the cause
Till the day that my uncles can be united by law
When kids are walking 'round the hallway plagued by pain in their heart
A world so hateful some would rather die than be who they are
And a certificate on paper isn't gonna solve it all
But it's a damn good place to start
No law is gonna change us
We have to change us
Whatever God you believe in
We come from the same one
Strip away the fear
Underneath it's all the same love
About time that we raised up... sex

Mary Lambert:

And I can't change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
And I can't change
Even if I tried
Even if I wanted to
My love
My love
My love
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm
She keeps me warm

Love is patient
Love is kind
Love is patient
Love is kind
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind
(I'm not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind
(I'm not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
(not crying on Sundays)
Love is kind
(I'm not crying on Sundays)
Love is patient
Love is kind

Can We All Just Agree That Adam Lambert And Katy Perry Are The Most Photogenic Pair Ever!? 

MTV Buzzworthy Blog

Katy Perry and Adam Lambert posed after the VMAs.
Katy and Adam should basically do everything together so that we get more of these flawless photos.
Though watching our 60-second VMA supercut video on repeat really does wonders with VMA withdrawal, a worthy alternative cure might be staring at the photo of Adam Lambert and Katy Perry up top, which Adam shared on his Instagram along with the caption, "Me and my grill @katyperry." (Wordplay FTW!)
This picture of Katy and Adam BFF-ing at Sunday's ceremony is just, like, TOO PERFECT! Seriously, our pupils can only handle so much beauty per pixel.Speaking of pixels, we're willing to bet that if you zoomed in on this photo about 14 bazillion times, you'd see that every tiny digital dot is actually a little fleck of glowing glam. What, you don't think that pop stars' pictures are made up of the same plebian pixels we get, do you? GET REAL.
I mean, well, we're trying to focus on it, but the shine from Katy's grill paired with the Artist To Watch presenter's gleaming smize may just make us go blind.We're gonna opt for closing our eyes and imagining what went down.
They probably complimented each other's incredible outfits, arranged brunch plans the next morning so they could rave over Katy's Turnt-Up "Roar" performance . And then, Katy asked Adam to do a PRISM collabo because, guys, GlammyKats need to be the next stan movement, amirite?? (Show those Glam-birds what's what.)
