Adam Lambert Is Gay, Says Kara DioGuardi

American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert is openly gay, says Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.

“I don’t think that Adam was ever in [the closet],” she says in a taped interview airing Friday on The View. “I think he was always openly out. I never thought he wasn’t.”

When asked by Barbara Walters whether Adam‘s perceived sexuality may have swayed voters, Kara said, “Well, first of all, I hope not … because we should be judging on talent and viability in the music industry and they both [Adam and winner Kris Allen] had that.”

    She has no wast at all.And it’s not because she’s thin, it’s just the way she was built.I have seen anorexic people and they still have a wast.I’d hate it if i didn’t have a wast though, i’d feel like a boy.

    Of course everyone knows Adam is gay, but he won’t come out and say it just yet…He is waiting to get paid to come out on the cover of his issue of Rolling stone magazine when his issues comes out very soon. That is so not cool.

    Can someone please explain what “openly gay” means? I never heard Adam say he was gay on the show. I didn’t even give it a thought until Perez Hilton splashed some pics of Adam with other guys on his web site. Adam certainly doesn’t LOOK gay (see Clay Aiken, and Perez Hilton). I don’t think most people watching the show knew unless they read some of the blogs.

    I think there is a bit of a double standard, though. If a female contestant had posed for some of the pics that Adam had posed for, she probably would have been thrown from the show.

    Ugh, after the stunt Kara pulled when she tried upstaging Bikini Girl why would anyone even listen to what she has to say?! Kara annoyed me before but after that cry for attention I’m-so-jealous-of-this-younger-woman-so-I’m-going-to-try-and-make-her-look-silly crap she pulled I absolutely will not watch American Idol next season if Kara is coming back. The woman is a moron, and a desperately needy one at that.

    I appreciate the fact that he hasn’t commented on it. It shows that he wants the focus to be on what is important, which is music, not his sexuality.

    you are a lesbian.. And a big dike at that… So go ahead and show

    a lot of people dont care if Adam is gay or not. He is a good singer regardless. Kara has no business telling everyone. Hope she doesn’t come back next series.

    First of all, lets rethink this for a minute “I think he was always openly out. I never thought he wasn’t.” – She did think he wasn’t gay at a certain point and it’s during the audition, it was obvious she had a slight crush on him considering she went all blushy-giggly when he kissed her hand. That’s one.

    Second off, who is she to actually speak, no offense but I think if anyone should be talking about Adam’s sexuality it is Adam himself – otherwise no one, no matter what the case, has a right to speak. Since he’s not talking, I don’t think Kara or anyone else around Adam should be speaking. No matter what the cause.

    Third, gay or not, Adam’s a singer, this is a talent show, this is a show about musical talent not about sexuality and what people think of homosexuals – so lets hope people aren’t dumb enough to have voted for this that way. And even if they did, i’d feel sorry that people in this world still act that way after humans like Harvey Milk made history.

    Adam’s a great singer, a wonderful performer and a really sweet guy, homosexual, or not, people should see his musical abilities.

    who cares if Adam is gay or not? It’s his personal life. What counts is that he seems like a wonderful person, a terrific singer with so much talent among other things….

    I really hope people did not vote for him because they thought he was gay. That’s really silly and not the point of the American Idol contest.

    Oh…and oh….he’s cute!

    Kara is not gay according to aol she is engaged to some guy. i dont care is he is gay. his eyes are amazing but he wears to much makeup. i dont like the dark look he should go back to his natural color which i think is blonde according to footage from high school. too bad cuz people thought he was the next Elvis.

    ganymede30324 Says:

    So we keep reading that an openly gay guy is suddenly coy about his identity after all the hype over how his runner-up status supposedly had to do with his sexuality. If Adam is SOOO much more talented and marketable than anyone else, then why NOT allow his talent to speak for itself?

    Its one thing to be gay, but keep it to yourself. When you start milking it for covers and making money off your sexuality, you lose my support. I no longer will be buying anything from this flaming homo.
