American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert opens up about his sexuality in the next issue of Rolling Stone: ‘I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay.’ He revealed that a ‘drug-fueled Burning Man epiphany..’
..brought him to AI: ‘I realized that we all have our own power, and that whatever I wanted to do, I had to make happen. I was like, ‘I’m going to glue rhinestones on my eyelids, bitch!’
On coming out: ‘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 bull****. I need to be able to explain myself in context. ‘I’m proud of my sexuality,’ I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.’ Photo shoot video @ Rolling Stone.
