It’s official: American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert, featured on the cover and in an interview in the new Rolling Stone, confirms he is gay.
“I’m proud of my sexuality,” Lambert adds. “I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.” Ultimately, however Lambert tells RS contributor Vanessa Grigoriadis that there are other parts of his life that he’s trying to keep front and center. “I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader,” he says.
He also says he had a crush on AI winner Kris Allen. Allen, totally supports Adam.
I think he’s happier that he can be himself and it’s nice,” Allen told People about Lambert’s relationship with hunky Drake LaBry, with whom he’s been photographed holding hands. “Adam is who he is and he’s not afraid. I support him in whatever he does.”
And, Adam has just signed a recording contract with 19 Entertainment and RCA Recordings. His first album should be out this fall.
