Mary Lambert Spills Her 'Secrets' - VIDEO

Gay

The "Same Love" songstress has released a lyric video for her new single, “Secrets,” in which she proudly proclaims she doesn’t care if the world knows what her secrets are. She then lists said secretes: she’s bi polar, her family is dysfunctional, sometimes she cries all day, she’s overweight and she’s gay. From HitFix:

Mary_lambertAll these confessions are sung over an impossibly jaunty tune as she refreshingly reveals all in the lyric video. “‘Secrets’ might be the first fun song I’ve ever written,” says Lambert…She co-wrote the track with Eric Rosse, Benny Cassette and MoZella. Rosee and Cassette are also executive producers on her new album, “Heart On My Sleeve,” out Oct. 14 on Capitol Records.

The song is about accepting yourself, flaws and all. “I felt like there were a lot of songs coming out about self-empowerment and challenging beauty standards and I wanted to write a song along those same lines, but in my voice,” Lambert says in a statement. “There is so much shame and guilt in our society and I think it has deprived a lot of people from living fully. We are all facing battles, We’ve all had someone who has hurt us. So let’s talk bout it.”

  2. Actually, Styler - she has a lovely tone and timbre and makes rather impressive use of her non-autotuned range. The track is playful and interesting and the lyrics have a positive outlook and message.
    Not to your taste? Fine & dandy - but why try to use your personal opinion to attack someone who is using her talent to enter the world with a bit of positive energy?

  3. Reminds me of Lily Allen, in a good way.

  5. Trickgood: so intent > talent? God forbid you expect music to be good before you mindlessly praise it.
