Once again, proof that losing "American Idol" is still winning.
Runner-up Adam Lambert has a record deal. He's signed with 19 Recordings.
Lambert's debut album is due out in the fall.
What the El!?! Editorial:
I personally don't care about Kris' album, I'm waiting for Adam's album!
And for those who have no gay-dar, this announcement's probably for you. Adam Lambert's gay.
The "American Idol" runner-up makes the admission in Rolling Stone magazine.
Though he admits it shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone. He says "I'm proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It's just another part of me."
Lambert says he's not interested in being a poster child for gay rights. He says "I'm trying to be a singer, not a civil-rights leader."
I'm glad he came out so that people can stop talking about it. Move on, he just wants to be a singer!
