Adam Lambert Would Consider Acting Again -- After Album Release

Musical-theater vet says he'd 'love to be a part of a film.'

[artist id="3188063"]Adam Lambert[/artist] is still a couple of weeks away from releasing his major-label debut, For Your Entertainment, but already he's considering other career options. In fact, Lambert would love to go back to Hollywood. But this time instead of competing on the "American Idol" stage, he would love to see his face on the silver screen.

"[Acting] is something that I've done a lot over the past eight or 10 years," he told the Philippine Daily Inquirer. "If the opportunity came up and it was the right thing, I would love to be a part of a film. Right now, I am going to try to work on the album first. One thing at a time."

Lambert, who was making a name for himself in the L.A. musical theater scene before he went on "Idol," is wisely concentrating on his upcoming album release. The glam rocker explained the LP's mix of musical genres in his interview with the paper.

"I went four or five different ways all on the same album," he said. "I wanted to figure out a way to do an album that had cohesion to it but that was kind of a variety of different directions, just like what my experience was on 'Idol.' I think we did it. ... It's not as Svengali puppet master as people commonly think the 'Idol' experience is. It's actually been the opposite."

Lambert seems to be comfortable with all the attention he's getting these days, particularly all the focus on his image. "You can label [my look] however you want — androgynous, glam, emo, Goth. We can put a bunch of different labels on it, but I'm just being myself," he said. "I like to pretty it up like all the good rock stars do. Mick Jagger and David Bowie did it, and I'm like trying to do it now."
