American pop star Adam Lambert's concert in Singapore on Friday has been given an "Advisory 16 and above (some mature content)" rating by the Media Development Authority (MDA).

This means the performance by the openly gay singer contains content that may not be suitable for younger audiences, but will not restrict admission by age.

The MDA explained on its website that the concert "will feature two songs from Adam Lambert's album Trespassing - Outlaws Of Love and Shady - whose lyrics are based on the singer's personal experiences and lifestyle".

The Straits Times reported last Saturday that the National Council of Churches of Singapore (NCCS) had received a complaint that a church-owned venue was hosting Lambert's concert, which may promote "the gay lifestyle".
