WATCH: Mary Lambert Tells Sweet Lesbian Love Story with 'She Keeps Me Warm'

Out performer Mary Lambert stars in the sweet video for her single "She Keeps Me Warm."

Prior to Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards Mary Lambert may not have been a household name, but following her performance with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis on “Same Love,” during which she sang face-to-face with Oscar winner and renowned belter Jennifer Hudson, Lambert is well on her way.

Best known for the melodic hook in Macklemore’s LGBT anthem “Same Love,” Lambert released a solo version of “She Keeps Me Warm” earlier this summer. Now, the video for “She Keeps Me Warm,” starring Lambert in the incipient stages of a sweet lesbian love story, is out for your viewing pleasure.

In an exclusive interview with us Lambert explained her thinking behind the story for the video:

“While we’re providing a context for the world to see a normal lesbian relationship with two women, I also wanted to show a context of a plus-sized woman that can be romantic and sexy.  I notice so often in media, plus-sized women’s bodies are used also as a novelty, not that different from the way lesbian relationships are used as a novelty.  The plus-sized woman’s body has become this comedic element to things.  They’re not allowed to be sexy.  It’s always supposed to be funny or make you uncomfortable, and I was always so frustrated with that. I feel romantic, and I feel sexy, and I have a really great butt!”
