“I didn’t feel attractive in high school. I had self-esteem issues into my early 20s. I was a little overweight, I had skin problems”

SOUNDBITES — “I never wore full-on eyeliner in high school, but I wanted to. I wanted to wear nail polish so bad, but I was afraid to. I was afraid to express myself for a while. I didn’t feel attractive in high school. I had self-esteem issues into my early 20s. I was a little overweight, I had skin problems. As I learned to feel attractive from the inside out, my self-worth got better. […] My life has changed so much, I’m not sure what my needs are anymore. At the moment, it’s probably difficult to have a relationship. I’m going to be doing a lot of growing in the next couple years. I’ve only been in two relationships, and really, really in love just one time. That’s one part of my life I’m learning about – my heart.” —Adam Lambert, on the past and future, less than a week before his debut album drops [USA Today]
