//Adam Lambert Admits He’s Gay In Rolling Stone Magazine//

Adam Lambert finally confirms what fans have speculated for months: he’s gay.

The American Idol season 8 runner-up comes out in the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine in his revealing cover story.

“I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay,” he told the magazine.

The 28-year-old rocker with an intense love for tight pants, eye liner, and spiked hair has never denied being gay. Idol judge Kara DioGuardi told hosts on The View he was out during the show, he just didn’t make it an issue. He has been spotted around town proudly holding hands with his boyfriend, designer Drake LeBry.

Lambert talks about his plan to officially come out and how he purposely chose Rolling Stone to break the news.

“Right after the finale, I almost started talking about it to the reporters, but I thought, ‘I’m going to wait for Rolling Stone, that will be cooler,’ ” he said. “I didn’t want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullshit. I need to be able to explain myself in context.”

He continued, “I’m proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.” But he’s not looking to make his career all about his sexuality. He wants the main focus to remain his music. “I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.”

The issue is on newsstands Friday.
