Adam Lambert is every bookie’s pick for this year’s American Idol winner, which helps explain why he’s already on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. But his non-answer to the speculation about his personal life inside suggests he’s aware that his homoerotic photos and Burning Man appearances could pull conservatives towards Christian competitors Danny Gokey and Kris Allen.
I know who I am. I’m an honest guy, and I’m just going to keep singing.
Despite the increasing intensity of anti-Lambert material on the web, the singer got a hero’s welcome during his “hometown visit” in San Diego today, where he spoke with high school students, visited his old drama and music teachers and inspired a mob scene outside of a radio station. Whether or not the rumors keep him from winning, there’s no doubt that Lambert is already a star.
