Adam Lambert is gay!: Surprised?

Rolling-Stone-adam-lambert_l Adam Lambert finally confirms his sexuality in the new issue of Rolling Stone. Yes, it turns out the American Idol contestant is gay. The issue hits stands this week, but already has some excerpts up. “I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay,” Lambert says in the interview, adding, "I’m proud of my sexuality…I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.” Just don't call him a poster boy, Lambert urges in the piece: "I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.”

What do you think, Music Mixers? Is anyone out there remotely surprised by this news? And what do you make of the snake-enhanced RS cover photograph?

    This is from Rolling Stone’s “No Frickin Duh” issue.
    I’m also looking forward to the articles “Simon Cowell Gets Nasty” and “Paula Abdul: My Prescription Drug Nightmare.”

    Adam you ROCK!
    I love that he is so open and unashamed about himself.
    So HOT!!!!!!

  • Rock Chick

    Adam Lambert is gay? What a shock-not. Now let the man make his album and shut up about it.

  • cranky

    In other shocking news today: Water Confirmed to be Wet! Sky is Indeed Up! Bears Do In Fact Crap in the Woods! Sheesh.

  • Paige Turner

    This is so unfair to straight women. He is sexy as heII.

  • SJones

    Wow. Hot cover. I can’t wait to read the article. Seems like he “comes out” in very nonchalant fashion. Very cool. (I’m so relieved that the cover doesn’t read “Yes, I’m Gay.” Because that would have been terribly lame.)
    So far, so good, Adam. Keep it up!

  • pleather

    It’s a beautiful snake, but I’m not quite sure I get it. Adam is a snake? Adam has a snake in his pants? Hunh?

  • Winona

    The only thing I’m surprised about is how sexy the cover pic is – hot!

  • Jennifer

    That cover photo looks gay.

  • blind

    Why the snake? Why the butterfly? What is the symbolism?

  • EntertainmentBlogger

    No surprises here. Always knew Adam liked other snakes near his crotch.

  • tij

    Finally that this is out of the way. Can we discuss about something else?

  • PeterBilt The Nature Boy

    I am shocked and appalled. Sorry ladies, you’ll just have to settle for old PeterBilt then.

  • PeterBilt The Nature Boy

    Don’t worry ladies, there is plenty of me to go around

  • CindyM

    I assume the snake to play on Adam and the Garden of Eden maybe? Hot, hot cover.
