Adam Lambert: I'm Gay (Rolling Stone Cover)

Adam Lambert officially comes out of the closest in the the new issue of Rolling Stone, on stands tomorrow. Here’s a preview of his interview:

On coming out: “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 [But] I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.”

On realizing he was gay growing up: “I started to realize I wasn’t like every other boy. I realized that we all have our own power, and that whatever I wanted to do, I had to make happen.”

On his run on American Idol:”I was like, ‘I’m going to glue rhinestones on my eyelids, b—-!’ Right after the finale, I almost started talking about [being gay] 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 bulls—. I need to be able to explain myself in context… Clay Aiken’s gay, and I’m gay, and we couldn’t be more different. The only thing that is the same about everyone in the gay community is that we’re gay. … Why can’t we talk about a human community?”

On getting attention from fangirls: “I loved it this season when the girls went crazy for me. As far as I’m concerned, it’s all hot.”

On sharing a bedroom with Idol winner Kris Allen: “They put me with the cute guy. Distracting! He’s the one guy I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type — except that he has a wife. I mean he’s open-minded and liberal, but he’s definitely 100% straight.”

On gaining self-confidence through Idol: “I finally checked into my self-worth for the first time in my life, and the fact that it coincided with Idol is so sweet. I mean, I still have moments where I think, ‘Oh, my skin is terrible, and I’m a little fat — I should really go to the gym more.’ But for the most part, when I look in the mirror now, I finally see somebody who can do something cool.”

    You know I have been critical of Adam in other posts, but I am ok with him coming out this way. I think he handled it correctly (the way he wanted it). I love his honesty as well, it made me like him. He is just like everyone else, he has insecurities and he is not perfect. He is human. And all of us being part of the human community we should all be more accepting. I am a kris fan, but he is a cool guy. I won’t say anything mean spirited about him anymore.

    Finally that this is out of the way. Can we discuss about something else? So all that MANLY-LOOK in AI like the Mad World #1, Satisfaction, Black & White, Tracks of My Tears, Funky Music, One, his audition of Bohemian Rhapsody were the FAKE Adam Lambert. I don’t mind gay people but the only thing I mind is how every gay man has to OPENLY comment about other men if they are his type or if they are hot or cute. Like can’t a gay man just be around another man without thinking of sex/his body (he is cute, hot, etc.)?

    I think that’s why a lot of gay men are good-looking because they focus too much on the looks/body of another man. And they are the in-your-face type also where they would force a straight man to be gay by coming on to them. In my opinion, I think there are men who are born gay like they think they are female, I have seen this before. But I also think that there are men who were NOT born gay but learned to be gay because another true gay male attracted to them was hounding them to be gay. I have seen this one also.

    I guess, I am discussing about gay. LOL

    F**k off!
    Straight men think and talk about cute girls all the time.

    I don’t understand why it’s a surprise that he’s Gay…I knew it from the moment I first saw him. I don’t think he was ever trying to hide that fact. But I love his voice and this is a cool Magazine cover!!!

    Throw Up…throw up all over my computer. Gay mess of a man.

    Cassie Says:

    Yayyyyyyyyy, the cover is ultra sexy. And I love how candid he is. He doesn’t have to be inside the Idol bubble anymore.

    Stevie Wonder can see that Adam is gay. Doesn’t take away his talent.

    @31 Says:

    Are you really that ignorant? Or are you just a troll?
    Straight men can’t be “forced” to be gay. That’s one of the stupidest things that I have ever read.
    And gay men can be “manly”, just as some lesbians can be ‘feminine’. You need to get a new set of stereotypes. Your old ones don’t work.

    i don’t know why gays were so obsessed with hearing him say it, as if it wasn’t fcuking obvious. LOL.. he’s gay, so what.. i bet people still wont move on.

    Adam Rocks!! Can’t wait to hear his music!!

    lacey Says:

    Yay, HOT cover! But the quotes are all wrong. They are out of order and jumbled – putting sentences together that don’t go together. It skews what Adam actually says.

    btw, he didn’t discuss it on the show because he didn’t want it to overshadow his singing – remember, he was in singing competition!

    As for some of the comments on this site…grow up people.

    Liz Says:

    So…I’m going to pull an Adam and buy several copies of this issue. When does this issue go on the shelves? I. CAN’T. WAIT!!!!

    I also can’t wait to see HIM and his amazing talent on tour!! He’s my WHOLE reason to watch Idol AT ALL!!!

    Love Adam’s honesty. He’s so right about the ‘human community’ thing, gay or not gay, who cares. Btw, he looks ultra hot!

    @ Mary # 32 — so true!

    I think he’s adorable, the cover is sexy, and his responses prove him to be a very grounded guy.

    Who cares if he’s gay?!
    I love him as a singer, as an entertainer. I also think he’s HOT.
    You don’t have to be perfect to be hot and gorgeous and ADAM IS HOT AND GORGEOUS AND TALENTED !!!
    What else could you ask for?

    Great cover and fantastic interview, he is a nice guy, respect!

    Anessa Says:

    Adam Lambert drives me absolutely crazy! Who cares if he’s gay! More power to him for having the ability to turn so many people on with his amazing talent. Newsflash, America! Sex sells and Adam Lambert is a sex symbol for this generation. Elvis can keep the throne, but it’s about time America found someone worthy enough to wear the crown & hey— I think Adam would still make a fabulous, diamond studded tiara look fN hott!
    Thx for the out of this world visual ****** you continue to give us, Adam! ;-)

    hmm Says:

    he needs better fitting clothing. I HATE his jackes with the pushed up sleeves and boulder shoulders and I hate the way he wears his pants ALMOST as much as I hate the way Zac Efron wears his pants. When a dude has no butt and the skinny jeans sag they make his lower body look short and weird.
