Adam Lambert & Wanda Sykes: Out 100 Cover Stars

Adam Lambert & Wanda Sykes: Out 100 Cover Stars

Adam Lambert and Wanda Sykes are among Out’s 100 – a group of 100 gay men, lesbians, transgender people and allies – in the magazine’s upcoming December 2009 issue.

The 27-year-old Idol alum was named the Breakout Star, while Wanda took home Entertainer of the Year. Here’s what Adam had to share with Out

On sexuality: “To some people, me being sexual is really offensive because I’m gay. They’re like, ‘He’s being really gay.’ And I’m like, actually, ‘No, I’m just being sexual.’ Male sexuality is frightening to America [but] female sexuality is all over the place.”

On fame: “Fame doesn’t freak me out, and I can handle it. But sometimes out in public there are people that just are so rude.

“Like, people are really cool about it and they’ll come up to you and they’re just like, “Oh hey man, I really liked you.” It’s brief, it’s sweet, it’s genuine. But some people freak out. And I’m like, why are you freaking out? I don’t get that mentality. I’ve never felt like that about a celebrity before — except maybe Madonna.

“When I met Madonna my heart was racing. That’s my one experience being star-struck. And I told her, ‘I’m freaking out.’ And she said, ‘Why?’ And I said, ‘Because you’re f—ing Madonna.’”

The Out 100 issue will hit newsstands next Tuesday (November 24). For the complete list of the 100 people recognized, visit

    Come on Adam…Sexy is one thing, Sexual/Sleezy is another. Even sexual sleezy women are just that…sleezy. I think they call them ****** or other similar words. Dont join them. We just want to hear you sing.

    I thought Cindi lauper was the same as that other 80s singer with the short hair who was on a reality tv show.

    read the whole statement!
    “100 gay men, lesbians, transgender people and allies”
    Lauper always was an avid supporter of gay and transgender people rights.

    not homophobic, really Says:

    Yep gay male sexuality is scary to many people and it’s because of their wee-wees protruding from their bodies, poking here and there in straights and gays, carrying that horrible disease to men and women.

    Wanda Sykes has never been funny! Agh she is awful, whoever decided she should get her own show needs to be shot.

    Adam is sexy and sensual and I’m loving it! He’s just pushing our buttons to find out what his boundaries are and how far out there he can go with the public. We have female sexualty thrown in our faces everyday on TV, magazines, movies, etc. Why not some male sexuality? – especially from our talented sexy Adam! Just don’t forget though that we mainly want you, Adam, to be about sharing your beautiful voice and making us feel those emotions that you do through your singing. That’s the best part of you and the part I love the most. I freaked out standing before you twice on do to me what M did to you…made my heart race and my brain to go blank! No one else has ever done that to me and I’m in my 60s!!!!!!
