So Adam Lambert did make it to the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine! I read the interview and I was pretty surprised at how candid and frank he was about his experiences and sexuality. Yes, he talks about his sexuality in this article, and for those of you who stubbornly refuse to believe that Adam Lambert is gay, there’s no better way to find out than from the horse’s mouth. Besides his sexuality, Adam said some things that will probably shock some of those who voted for him on the show, and I hope Adam wins more fans beyond his Idol core base, cos after the interview I’m not sure all of them will be sticking around. Here are a couple of quotes from the interview:
About discussing his sexuality, “Right after the finale, I almost started talking about it 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 bullshit. I need to be able to explain myself in context.”
On attention from women, “I loved it this season when the girls went crazy for me…As far as I’m concerned, it’s all hot…Just because I’m not sticking it in there doesn’t mean that I don’t find it beautiful”
Kris Allen is his type, “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 the Burning Man kissing photos, “Wasn’t ready for that,” he says. (See photos of Adam Lambert kissing boys.)
On getting caught with gay porn, Adam’s father Eber caught his 13-year-old son looking at gay pornography on the family computer, and turned to his wife and said ‘It’s official.’ Later, Lambert’s mother asked if he had a girlfriend. He said no. She asked if he had a boyfriend. He said no. Then she asked if he wanted a boyfriend, to which Lambert replied “Yes, that would be nice.”
Experimenting with drugs, He tried drugs for the first time at 21, during his six-month European tour of Hair. That was when he dyed his hair black. In Germany, he started smoking pot and tried Ecstasy. But he does have limits. Among his dislikes: cocaine.
Does not do drag, “I’ve only dressed in drag three or four times. … I don’t tuck and wear breasts, that’s not me.”
