Singer tells GSN: 'I've been openly gay my whole career and I don't think there's any other way to be'

Eli Lieb, whose cover of Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball went viral last year on YouTube, likes to sing about love.

But the openly gay artist wants his songs to be relateable to both straight and gay audiences.

'When you listen, it's equal,' he tells Gay Star News. 'When you see my videos, it's still equal and I try to make that the point - it's just love as opposed to a gay relationship.'

While the songs can apply to straight or same-sex love, the videos leave no doubt that Lieb is into men.

He tweets: “Anyone find it interesting how straight male pop stars are pandering to gay audiences lately!?"

It's not lost on Adam Lambert that some supposedly straight male pop stars are aggressively courting gay male fans.

He's not naming names but it seems clear he's got to be talking about Nick Jonas who has flashed his abs at gay clubs or One Direction's Harry Styles who seemed to hint in a recent interview that he might be bisexual.

The openly gay Lambert is asking his Twitter followers: 'Anyone find it interesting how straight male pop stars are pandering to gay audiences lately!? Should we be flattered? Progress or strategy?'
