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.”

I love him not because I want to sleep with him,gay or not I could care less.I love him as the inner me-wild,fearless,brave child

Learning he is gay is about as surprising as learning the pope is Catholic.

boring as ever…

Thanks – agree. The vitriol on this site is pretty awful.

He’s better looking than 99% of the people you know – he’s 100% more talented than the people you know – he’ s more charismatic than just about anyone you know – and he can sing like the very devil. All the critics and naysayers on this blog should take a look in the mirror. My, that’s impressive. The guy’s got it – and the world knows it. Get over it.

It wouldn’t have mattered if he said he was an alien, he is still hot! He can still sing, and that is all that matters.

hahaha I love when he talks about his crush on Kris. that’s so funny! I love him

my gosh,, i think hot guys are already extinct..,but still i like his bLACK FINGERS!!!!!

He will have no problem getting endless bottoms.

I could tell that Adam was gay, or at least bi-, from the start, even before the pics of him making out with a guy came out. Aside from that, I wonder what Kris would say when he reads what Adam said about him, haha, in case he didn’t already know.

GROSSSSSSSSSSSS EWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why gay men are so handsome?….

@@Sg:

Gay men are more feminine. They take better care of themselves ,their body and overall self image.

OMG, i think i died when i read that adam would’ve loved Kris if Kris was gay… T_T this. is. totally. awesome

@KRISALLENFAN:
This is for NASTY… So what if your GAY! Who cares??? HUH???
Adam sure as hell don’t! Adam is the real winner in this because
he has all the women and men loving him!! And not cuz he is gay
but because he CAN sing…Chris Allen is a wanna be …always will be.
Good Luck Adam as I know everything you touch will turn to gold!
Love you love you love you!!!

ohhh that is such a good interview! bless him. ah allll man :D

this should be no suprise to anyone, its gross and not natural and shouldnt be supported

this is not a suprise to anyone, i dont know if he thought he was fooling anybody, but this is gross and shouldnt be supported

I just want to say, I am glad Adam came out. I am a straight and I think he is Hot and I definitely will buy this issue of Rolling Stone magazine. I just want Adam to hurry up and put a record out already. I hope he does it soon so we have something to look forward to. lol Adam You Rock ! I have some of your songs on my Ipod. I have to say AI calmed some of his songs down from the live performances. I vey much liked the live performances just the way he looks at the camera would make anyone melt.

Adam is the ****!…HOT, SEXXXY, FIERCE!

I don’t care if he doesn’t have da best skin or gains a few pounds….he’s freakin off the charts beautiful!

GO ADAM!
