Adam Lambert is days away from turning the big 4-0 and in a recent interview, the singer admitted he isn't jumping for joy about growing older.

Speaking to Attitude magazine, Adam said he finds it "slightly terrifying" that he's soon turning 40 because of his "Peter Pan complex."

Even so, Adam says he has much to look forward to in the years ahead because he is "on a personal transition right now into the next chapter" of his life, which is something he finds "exciting." 

But, when it comes to planning how he wants to celebrate his birthday on January 29, the Grammy nominee admitted, "I don’t have anything planned for my 40th yet. I'll do something with friends."

The American Idol finalist also looked back on his youth and noted that attitudes on homosexuality have softened since he stepped into the limelight in 2009.  "If I was growing up right now, a teenager or in my early 20s in 2021, would my relationship with my sexuality or gender be exactly what it is now?," he wondered.  "I don't know. It might be different."

He also stated, "As we get older, identity becomes less of a priority and mystery.  That’s one reason the new generation is so excited about pronouns and names for their gender." 

When discussing how times have changed, Adam pointed out that gender fluidity and queer culture are openly being explored and celebrated.  "You look at the scene now and it’s so much more accepted and visible," he remarked.

Lil Nas X is revealing which two pop stars are among his biggest inspirations.

In two exclusive clips of his interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, obtained by People, Lil Nas says he counts Miley Cyrus and Doja Cat as major influences.

"Miley is just the sweetest person ever and I feel like she's one of those people that don't even realize how impactful and how much of a legend they already are," he says. "And what they have done and what they're doing right now, even to this day. And I really admire her and her ability to constantly change herself."

Lil Nas X, of course, worked with Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, on the mega-successful remix of “Old Town Road.”

Of Doja Cat, Lil Nas says seeing her VMAs performance last year motivated him to up his game. "It literally made me start going to the gym,” he says. “Because I was like, 'I want to get in shape because I want to start doing crazier, better performances.'"

“And just her music, she's diverse, her videos, and her personality is really colorful and pop," he adds. "She's funny. She's a fun person. She takes things seriously, but doesn't take things seriously. You know what I mean? She takes what she does seriously."

Lil Nas X is set to release his new album, Montero, Friday.
