So, is Adam Lambert gay?
"Calm down," the American Idol runner-up says about wanting to know about his sexual preference, and "keep speculating."
Really, though, who cares?! It doesn't change the fact that he is super talented and different, and, most importantly, comfortable in his own skin.
"It's a really, really cool thing," Adam said, "to be able to show people that you can be yourself, and you should be proud of yourself, and you should own who you are and what you're about, and never make apologies for it."
The singer, who could possibly be making music with Queen in the future, loves the idea of being someone to look up to.
"It feels really amazing to be able to try and pass that on to kids and young adults who don't have a role model like that," he says. "It feels great because I never had a role model like that."
"Conforming is not cool," he adds. "Embracing who you are and what makes you different is actually what's really cool ... The kids that are different and out there and expressive and are bold with those choices, those are the people that grow up to be people we all want to hang out with, that become celebrities or become really successful in what they do because they believe in who they are."
It really doesn't matter to me but, as for whether or not he'll ever put all the speculation to rest and address his sexuality, the glam rocker simply says, "Maybe."
That's right, Adam, let 'em stew.
