Reporter to ‘Idol’s’ Lambert: ‘Are You Bi-Curious?’
Adam Lambert of American Idol gave his first interview to ABC's 20/20 last Friday night. The main subject of the interview was Lambert's homosexuality. Lambert explained that, "It's surprising because I don't think twice about, for example, my sexuality. I've been living this way the whole time I've been here in L.A. for the past eight years. It's a funny reminder that not everybody is as comfortable with it as I am."
After a surprising loss to Kris Allen, Adam Lambert has managed to stay in the spotlight. Throughout the competition Lambert's sexuality had been debated and discussed relentlessly, and he has made the most of it. Lambert explained that "It feels really good cause I think there was a lot of speculation and talk ... And it feels really good to just kind of state the facts and move forward. Not keep wondering about, what does he do, you know? With whom?"
This unburdening came complete with a picture of Lambert kissing another man.
To finish the interview, reporter Chris Connelly asked "What message do you have for those women [who are attracted to you] now that you're declaring your sexuality?"
"Well I think that sexuality is universal. If something is attractive to you, it's attractive. Sexy is sexy."
"Are you bi-curious?"
"I would never give myself the label bi-sexual, but bi-curious, yeah. I've been known to make out with girls from time to time. A couple drinks involved, you know. It's fun. And who knows, maybe it will go further some day. I don't know. Who is the lucky woman? I don't know."
The phrase "Too much information" comes to mind.
