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.”

    big fan of this dude! Rock on man….you rule!
    and to all of you writing BS abt Lambert, get lost. And it is none of your business, the dude can hump a donkey if he wishes, back off and mind ur business. Its a shame that all you haters out there are even talking about this, shame on you and grow up.
    Respect and peace to Adam!

    Adam is amazing at singing and he is gorgeous. I feel sick when I see homophobes commenting and saying nasty ****. Accept life today cuz thats how it’s gonna be and you can’t change it. I love Adam. I couldn’t care less if he’s gay. Except for the fact I now have no chance with him. :( jokes. I think he’s perfect and beautiful. Bad skin? Fat? Where? What? ILY ADAM! <3

    I only saw one episode of Idol this season, and the first thing that comes to mind upon reading this is: No sh*t. I assumed he was already out.

    he’s def hot in this pic. and it still bothers me up to now coz he didnt win. his voice is FAR BETTER than Kris’s voice. and that just proves more and more as he sang diff songs on american idol. i think he’s one of the best people who joined American Idol. And he never hit on Kris. Like he said, Kris is 100% straight. so to anyone who says he hit on Kris, I suggest you find time to read. lol.
    I admire his voice so much that when I hear him sing, I feel goosebumps on my skin lol.
    well, even if he didnt win, i am sure he will outshine Kris Allen in many ways.

    He’s such a great guy, i can’t wait for his career to take off!

    Hope Says:


    He didn’t hit on Kris. Are you retarded? Can you read?
    He said Kris was attractive. Never mentioned hitting on him. Go back to first grade.

    Hope Says:

    @KRISALLENFAN: Actually, no one HAS noticed Kris after the competion that was a stupid thing to say. and Kris isn’t on he cover on rolling stone…so…yeah

    @mary: yeah, and the name mary is getting pretty annoying to me.

    Hope Says:

    @SANDY: yeah but he’s a dull and boring singer and only won because America isn’t accepting of gay people as a whole

    @Gross: Hey Gross, you are jealous of Adam. If you can get most women of all ages to like you even though you are gay, then you are as hot as Adam.

    aseret64 Says:

    @KRISALLENFAN: KRISALLENFAN – duh! its all about business. Adam is hot and people like haters, gay community and fans are talking about him everyday. He has crashed several domains because tons of people cant get enough of him. He deserved it. Winning the title doesnt mean you really “win”, and you very well know what I mean by this. Adam is the true winner in the long run. Dont be bitter if Kris isnt in the cover of RS. Helllllllllo!

    Ha Ha Ha Ha… You tell them!
    It is amazing how people read something and understand another.
    I wonder how their brains do that LOL, it went from “…I find him attractive”
    to: “…he hit on Kris.”

    News flash: When they say “Ignorance is bliss” does not mean it applies to EVERYTHING or in this instance for that matter.

    Logan, if you will remember Clay Aiken got a Rolling Stone cover and he wasn’t a winner either…what the “Stone” cares about is a massive audience appeal and that something extra that spells “Star”
