    Adam Lambert on His Sexuality: 'Keep Speculating'
    By Aaron Parsley

    Adam Lambert says role models come in a variety of different forms even in eye makeup, fingernail polish and tight pants.

    "It's a really, really cool thing," the American Idol runner-up says, "to be able to show people that you can be yourself, and you should be proud of yourself, and you should own who you are and what you're about, and never make apologies for it."

    So to those who speculate about his sexuality, he has a message. "Calm down," he says, and "keep speculating."

    Lambert, 27, who finished second to Kris Allen in the show that ended May 20, says his comfort with himself can serve as an example. "It feels really amazing to be able to try and pass that on to kids and young adults who don't have a role model like that," he says. "It feels great because I never had a role model like that."

    "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."

    As for all the talk about his personal life, Lambert says just one word when asked if he'll address his sexuality directly, say in an upcoming issue of Rolling Stone: "Maybe."

    The crowd sure loved them some Adam. Cameras going off all over the place. He sounded as great as always, and looked fabulous. Just got to love the guy.

    I almost feel sorry for Kris when they make appearances together, because he is just so overshadowed. Kris is just so average.

    I had a lovely dream about Adam last night. And yes, I'm old enough to be his mother.
    Count your blessings!

    Re: Adam Lambert - Season 8

    gawker.com has a recent article up really attacking Adam for his coy refusals to admit his sexuality. I can't post it here because there is lots of profanity, but if you are interested. Comments are pretty evenly split on the subject, but the writer pulls no punches.

    When will people ever get that it is none of their business who in the heck any person sleeps with and they have no right to know. I wish Adam would tell the media and anyone else who asks what his sexual leaning is that hey its my business and you don't need to know. I swear people are so nosy sometimes. I would be so irate if I had people coming up to me asking stupid questions all day.

    Re: Adam Lambert - Season 8

    Gawker just wants their headline and it's fun right now for a lot of these sites because Adam has been doing the cat-and-mouse game and pirouetting around all sexuality questions with clever comebacks like "that elephant is pink, isn't it?" and others. Rumor has had it for more than a week now that Adam was going to be on the cover of Rolling Stone and he will talk about the big "it", which is only big if you've been living under a rock and if you're some gossip site that needs to write about something. I think a certain constituency out there wants some sort of acknowledgment as a matter of principle, privacy and one's own timetable and feelings be damned.

    This made me smile. I hope he never talks about his sexuality - it might only serve to destroy sweet dreams like this one...
