American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert has confessed what we all knew – and were cool with – already. “I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay,” he tells this week’s Rolling Stone magazine. He’s right!
The singer – who is dating hunky interior designer Drake LaBry – continues: “I’m proud of my sexuality,” he confides. “I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.”
Adam adds that Idol producers allowed him to handle coming out on his own terms. “I was worried that [coming out] would be so sensationalized that it would overshadow what I was there to do, which was sing,” he says. “I’m an entertainer, and who I am and what I do in my personal life is a separate thing. it shouldn’t matter. Except it does. It’s really confusing.”
Yet the heartthrob insists that he wants to be known for his passion, not who he sleeps with at night. “I’m trying to be a singer,” he says, “not a civil rights leader.” [Photo: RollingStone]
