''"I don't think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I'm gay... I'm proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It's just another part of me.... I'm trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.... I didn't want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullshit. I need to be able to explain myself in context.''
Adam Lambert of American Idol fame finally ending speculation about being gay, and telling Rolling Stone magazine why he chose to chose the music magazine over another publication like People Magazine which has featured "I'm Gay" cover stories from Clay Aiken and Lance Bass. Lambert was expected to win the TV competition during most of the season, but lost in the finale to Kris Allen.(Rolling Stone)
