Los Angeles, May 31 (IANS) Rumour has been mounting online that this year’s “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert will come out of the closet about his sexuality in the next issue of the Rolling Stone magazine.
The New York Post’s Page Six is the first to report the story, saying “a well-placed magazine source” has confirmed that Lambert’s much-questioned sexuality will be put on the magazine’s next cover, AceShowbiz reports.
“He didn’t want it to be an issue during the contest, but he’s fine with his sexuality,” the source states when referring to Adam’s time on “American Idol”.
When asked to verify the story, a representative for Rolling Stone said: “We don’t comment on future covers.”
Lambert, who is the runner-up of “American Idol” season eight, raised speculations about his sexual orientation after the revelation of some photos showing him kissing men and dressed in full drag.
Refusing to acknowledge his sexuality, he hinted during several interviews that people can “keep speculating” on it.
