All the times singer Mary Lambert spoke the truth! Preach!
You may know Mary Lambert as the woman who lent her beautiful voice to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ hit, “Same Love,” but Lambert isn’t just a supremely talented songbird, she’s also constantly fighting to make the world a better place and is a huge proponent of gender equality, LGBT rights, mental illness awareness, and body positivity.
In an industry that can often feel like it only goes skin deep, Lambert’s authenticity is truly a breath of fresh air. In her single, “Secrets,” she cheekily sings, “I’ve got bi-polar disorder/My sh*t’s not in order/I’m overweight/I’m always late“. The hook, “They tell us from the time we’re young/To hide the things that we don’t like about ourselves/Inside ourselves/I know I’m not the only one who spent so long attempting to be someone else/Well I’m over it“.
It should come as no surprise to realize that Lambert is a never-ending fountain of wisdom outside of the studio, too. With brilliant tidbits of life advice in every interview and song, we’re starting to think Mary Lambert should pen a self-help book. Until that happens, we’ll just compile a few of our favorite Mary Lambert quotes into one convenient post. Get your notebooks out, folks — you may wanna copy some of these down.
