Update: I just added a couple of web extra clips (not included in the televised interview) one is a brief interview with Adam’s brother Neil.
Check out the video of Adam Lambert’s interview by Chris Connelly on ABC’s 20/20 tonight.
Connelly pretty much covering the same ground as the Rolling Stone interview, gave Adam the opportunity to say, out loud, the words many have been wanting to hear–“I Am Gay.”
Adam’s mother, Leila was interviewed, and there was a nice cross-cut between her and Adam, describing the moment he came out to her in his late teens.
Also, clips of Adam rehearsing for the American Idol summer tour, had him performing David Bowie’s “Fame” as well as Muse’s “Starlight”. It’s a pretty good bet he’ll be performing both when the Top 10 hit the road starting July 5 in Portland, OR.
A tiny digression: I got my US magazine in the mail yesterday, with Adam in a little sidebar on the cover with the obligatory headline “I Am Gay”. Inside, Adam shares his feelings on the RS cover with US, “I’m really happy with it. The cover looks great…I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.”
Video after the JUMP…
