Asked by UPI about the timeless quality of Queen's lyrics at a Live Nation press event in New York this week, Lambert replied, "They don't really sing about a lot of things that are about a specific time period."
"They also don't sing about: 'Oh, look how badass we are. Look at all of our money.' They don't do any of this ego... I mean, yes, 'We Are the Champions' has a braggadocious thing about it, but it's more of an empowerment, infectious thing for the audience to be involved in."
"So, I think that their songs are about the heart and the spirit and you can't really go wrong when you write about that stuff, you know? It's timeless and it's universal."
