With her new album, Mary Lambert stands on her own terms.


If you had to sum up Mary Lambert in one word, it might well be “authentic”— not a word that often springs to mind when you’re describing a pop star! But then, Lambert is by no means a typical pop star.

As you probably know, unless you’ve been living under a rock, Mary Lambert is a musician from Washington state who got her big break when she sang the hook of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’s 2014 smash, “Same Love,” a hip-hop song in support of marriage equality. But Lambert herself is not a hip-hop artist. Her music falls more in the singer-songwriter genre—but her songs are written on the piano rather than the guitar, and her repertoire is as likely to include intense spoken-word pieces as it is feel-good pop tunes. The song that made her a star is “She Keeps Me Warm,” a deceptively simple ballad that includes the hook from “Same Love” (“I can’t change, even if I tried”), which this straight, male writer admits he still can’t listen to (or watch) without getting misty-eyed.

We also remind readers to safeguard their health—sexual, psychological, and physical—which still needs to be maintained even within a committed relationship. Love isn’t as random as Cupid’s arrow. Getting it and keeping it need to be worked at. Decades of activism and visibility gave us the right to formalize our romantic unions—and vigilance will give us the right keep it.
