Jamai Loman is shocked at the fuss that has arisen around his new album. The LGBT community fell on the lyrics Enough To Do, because the singer was deliberately not about ‘he’ or ‘him’ sing.
“It has me pretty surprised,” says the singer last night at Peacock. “Everyone knows that I for men fall, I have also never difficult. I am shocked. Just because I no one wants to exclude, is the entire LGBT community about me cases.” According to Jamai played his orientation no role. “It has nothing to do with that I’m ashamed of my homosexuality. I am fifteen years ago from the cabinet came, that was on every front page, I have my color has already been long known.”
Not an activist
The gender-neutral texts were, according to Jamai intended for everyone to speak with his songs. “As a writer, I will always choose for ‘you’, never ‘he’ or ‘she’. If I have a song to sing, it is logical that with regard to a man. But I want that others can also find in the song.” The Idols-winner has, however, considered his orientation back to sound, but he did that after discussion with his schrijfpartners ultimately. “I was afraid that I was in a certain corner would be taken as I in the he-form would write. I don’t want that. I am a musician, not an activist.”
