Behind The Music: Adam Lambert is set to premiere this Sunday, August 7 at 10 PM ET/PT on VH1. The network sent over some quotes:

"I think I'm a result of all the things I love about music. I love rock and roll. I love that bombastic approach to vocals and sexuality. And I love the production style of electronic music. I love all that. I like artists that take risks and that don't want to blend in. That's the kind of person that I am and that's the kind of artist that I am." – Adam Lambert, on his career

"I think when I was in about sixth grade, that's when I first realized that I was probably not the same as the other boys. And, you know, it was a weird discovery and of course, I was kind of in denial for a while and it was all in my own head. And to me it was a deep secret. I was just not ready to talk about it with anybody. And I didn't know how my parent's would react and I didn't know what that would be like and I think at that age it was something that I was ashamed of, because it was so different. And [it] wasn't the norm and not encouraged and no one talks about that in school and that's one of the things that's so hard about being a young person and realizing that you're gay, or bi, or whatever. We're not told that that's okay." – Adam Lambert, on realizing he was different

"I was awkward and struggling to find out who I was and where I fit. I didn't know anybody else that was gay. So I was playing along, and that's one of the things that is really tough, is that you kind of create this persona in order to be accepted, and that persona is 'I'm just like everybody else, so, I'm gonna ask the girl to the dance… And I'm going to wear the clothes all the other boys are wearing, and this way no one will make fun of me, and this way, I'll be accepted.'" – Adam Lambert, his insecurities in high school
