Breaking news: American Idol runner up Adam Lambert is gay. (Gasp!)
I’m sure this is a huge shock for all of you so I’ll give you a moment of silence to process this.
After months of speculation about his sexuality, Lambert finally came out in a Rolling Stone magazine cover story. He says, “I’m proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.”
As to why he did not come out publicly earlier, Lambert says, “I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.”
What has me baffled, however, is not why Lambert didn’t come out earlier, but what exactly the Rolling Stone art department was going for with the cover shot. Check it out.
What is up with the weird butterfly and snake imagery? And while we’re at it, what’s up with Lambert’s outfit.
