UPDATE: Since I posted this article yesterday, there’s more evidence that the Rolllingstone cover article is going to happen. This item in the New York Post quotes an RS source “that Lambert will be coming out officially on the next cover of Rolling Stone.” and in this hilarious interview with Michelle Collins of Best Week Ever, Adam answers “maybe” with some side glances to his publicist when she asks him about he rumors… Meanwhile, big-mouth Kara DioGuardi has gotten her self some press by telling the gals at the View, that she has no doubts that Adam is out.
Adam Lambert may finally answer the questions about his sexual orientation that have been dogging him since the post-Idol finale press tour began last week.
“If you stay tuned, we’ll have all the answers you’re looking for, ” answered Adam in response to a question from Elvis Duran in a Z100 radio interview this morning, “Very very very soon, everybody is going to find out what they need to find out.”
That explains Ryan Seacrest’s mysterious twitter today, “What up adam and kris! crushing it on the today show! Btw adam will address the sexuality speculation soon. They are both superstars!” Oh Ryan, such an insider. NOT.
There’s a rumor going around that Adam’s got a cover story in the next issue of Rollingstone magazine. The speculation is he’ll “come out” via the article.
Throughout his entire Idol journey, Adam has never attempted to hide who he is. Do we really need him to spell it out for us? Seriously, the bulletin is unnecessary as far as I’m concerned. But whatevs. Maybe the press will shut up about it already if he finally admits the obvious.
ETA: I just had another thought. EW’s Adam B. Vary hit Adam up with the sexual preference question the night of the finale. If Adam had been forthcoming, his answer would have overshadowed everything else–including Kris Allen’s win. Adam stealing Kris’s thunder would have been totally uncool. So, journos, how about allowing Adam and Kris to focus on Idol as they make their post-Idol media rounds? ‘Cause the minute Adam ‘fesses up, the gay thing is all you peeps will talk about.
