In a post-American Idol finale interview Adam Lambert told Entertainment Weekly that he thinks that the speculation about his sexuality keeps things “interesting.” “
“[My sexuality] is not dangling over my head. It may be dangling over yours, but it’s not over mine. I think speculation keeps things very, very interesting.”
The American Idol runner up said that he was happy that Kris Allen won the contest. “I’m so happy for him. He deserves it. He’s so talented, and he’s a good person.
“We were roommates, so we were kind of thrown in together, and he’s just like a really open-minded, good person. He’s got a great view of the world. We share a lot of philosophies on the world, even though we have different backgrounds.”
During the show, Lambert had the opportunity to perform onstage with two legendary rock legends.
“Oh my god, what an honour. Queen is like one of my all time favourite rock bands, and then to be up on stage with KISS with the pyro and the costumes – I mean, it was a dream come true. It was awesome,” he said.
