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.
