Adam Lambert Decides to Come Out of the Closet

From Mercury News:

“American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert, who has been coyly noncommittal about his sexuality since becoming a sensation on the TV talent show, will come out in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in next month’s edition, the New York Post reported today.

Lambert has cheerfully ducked questions about his sexual preference, despite photos posted on the Web showing him kissing men, dressing in drag and otherwise acting like a British comedian.

The Post, quoting a “well-placed” source at Rolling Stone, said Lambert will put the speculation to rest in his cover-story interview.

“He didn’t want it to be an issue during the contest, but he’s fine with his sexuality,” the source told the New York Post. As recently as this week, Lambert told people to “keep speculating” when asked about his sexual preference.

Lambert is on a roll:

“Conforming is not cool,” he adds. “Embracing who you are and what makes you different is actually what’s really cool … The kids that are different and out there and expressive and are bold with those choices, those are the people that grow up to be people we all want to hang out with, that become celebrities or become really successful in what they do because they believe in who they are.”

Now is this a lot more fun than listening to Fox News brag about the Christian vote that rigged Rupert Murdoch’s singing contest to win?

Lambert’s going to be the next Golden Boy of music and folks won’t care if he’s gay any more than they care if Elton John is gay.
