Adam Lambert's Rolling Stone Cover and Article Addressing Sexuality, He Is Gay

Adam Lambert's Rolling Stone Cover — and, Yes, Sexuality — Finally Comes Out (Pun Intended)

After weeks of speculation and rumors, here it is: Adam Lambert's Rolling Stone cover story! His sexuality has been less and less of a mystery, especially after seeing Adam holding hands with his rumored boyfriend, but he still addressed the burning question. He also opened up about how a "drug-fueled" trip to Burning Man is what made him join American Idol — I'm guessing he's the only AI contestant ever to attend Burning Man. Here are highlights:

  • On his sexuality: "I don't think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I'm gay . . . I'm proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It's just another part of me . . . I'm trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader."
  • On joining Idol: "I knew that it was my only shot to be taken seriously in the recording industry, because it's fast and broad."
  • On coming out: "Right after the finale, I almost started talking about it to the reporters, but I thought, 'I'm going to wait for Rolling Stone, that will be cooler,' . . . I didn't want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullshit. I need to be able to explain myself in context."

Ever since he made his debut, Adam's been doing things his own way, and in even bigger news he just signed a record deal. His first album is expected this Fall and he ended his announcement saying, "It's going to be ridiculous! Get ready!" At this point, we expect nothing less.

Cover= TOTAL SEX!btw, i heard that in the interview he said that he loved when the girls would go crazy over him during AI, and he thinks it's all hot. there was something said like,"even though i'm not sticking it in there, it doesnt mean i don't think it's beautiful" --dont quote me on that quote lolapparently he also mentioned something about starting to feel bi-curious. i say, whatever, love you Adam no matter what!

I watched the show and it is pretty obvious to me that he is gay. I think it is not a big deal that he is gay, he is a good singer, that is all that matters. but i guess it is a big deal to adam since he has to come out in Rolling Stones.

The only thing about this gay "out" thing is that you are immediatly dealing with the person's sex lives. Really, who gives a .... on that? I am not gay so I have not walked in their shoes, but is it necessary to be or come "out" publicly? Some privacy is good to have I would think.

I think it's funny that he is getting the most publicity and he was in second place just goes to show you don't have to be in first place.
