    The whole interview here is good....but skip to 2:20 if you want to see the pink elephant question icon_smile.gif



    Go Adam!

    He comes out sort of....which I think is totally cool. I think he is handling the whoe am I gay or not issue very well...

    What do you think?

    Even though I don't really watch the idol show except clips here and there, I think he is a great performer, and sounds like a smart kid.

    I think it's reprehensible that the mainstream media is trying to one-up each other to get Adam to admit he's gay. And I am speaking of a member of the mainstream media. Leave the kid alone.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. It seems like they are all vying to be the first to officially break the news. Personally, I hope he holds out for a wad of cash for an exclusive outing with a major network. But seriously, who in their right mind would be shocked that faggotry was afoot at American Idol?

    Yea, I agree he handled it very well. I wish he could fire back and ask a question in answer to a question: Why do you want to know or need to know? But that would a big ole can of worms and the end to his career, I think.

    I don't agree here. I am sure this sort of questioning was discussed ahead of time with this interviewer and Lambert. It almost looks a little "tongue and cheek" and they both seem to be having fun.

    It is kind of "in" joking around... and I think it shows that he is above it all...having fun with it, making a non issue of it, and just being really cool.

    I respect him a lot more with the way he is handling this whole thing....

    Go Adam

    I would rather have Adam come out while he is still on top of his game unlike a certain Clay Akien did just to try and refire his career.
    I'm a bit confussed. Do we come out or do we stay in? If he is gay, great, if he isn't he needs to say one way or another.

    they were totally playing around.

    that was such a fun interview.

    i totally predict he's going to do the coming out thing on his own time - and maybe even make a dime doing it...as he should!

    Wholeheartedly agree. Shameful really (I'm stalking specifically about Perez Hilton's "closeted homosexual" remarks. Heck, if Adam is in the closet, it must be a pretty shallow one with the door wide open!)

    I enjoy the way he handles it - never really skirts around the issue but never says 'I'm Gay!' with a corresponding photo on People mag.

    He's not admitting or denying anything. I think he's just amused by the whole situation and he's going to wait for a big cash out on a magazine cover.

    Remember this...
