“American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert has given an interview to Out magazine, part 1 of which is available now. He addresses collaborating with Lady Gaga, his blown-out-of-proportion crush on Kris Allen and dabbling with the ladies.
Adam Lambert’s debut albut, “For Your Entertainment,” drops on Nov. 23 so he is ramping up for the release by making the press rounds. The first stop? Out magazine. Excerpts of the interview are below, you can read the whole piece on Out’s website.
On Lady Gaga: “I saw those pictures in Out, the Halloween pictures. They were incredible! I’m so refreshed by her. I think she’s finally taking risks. Like where are those people? You know what I mean? I’m inspired by it. I’m like, ‘Yeah, f**k yeah. Let’s take risks.'”
On Kris Allen and the “crush” comment: “Believe me, right after I said it, I was like… It turned into this thing, and I was like, ‘Oh God, I shouldn’t said that and now it’s blown way out of proportion.’ … He’s a really nice guy. One of the things that I think is so refreshing and cool about him is that he’s from Arkansas — and this is me being small-minded — I just kinda figured that the acceptance of people like me in Arkansas is probably a lot lower than here. And he’s very open-minded to people’s lifestyles and he doesn’t judge. He’s a good guy.”
On dabbling with girls: “I say I’m curious. There are gay guys that gag and go ‘eww’
at the thought of having sex with a girl. I’m curious about it, because
I’ve never done it … The point of the matter is that I would not rule it out. The idea is intriguing.”
