After months and months of speculation, everyone seems to be weighing in on Adam Lambert’s sexuality, except Adam Lambert himself. American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi recently sat down with the ladies of The View to discuss this season’s finalists. When asked about Adam’s sexuality, Kara claims she never thought he was in the closet. According to her, Adam has always been out as a gay man. This doesn’t take into account the countless interviews in which Lambert has refused to answer any question about his sexuality directly.
Rumors have been flying around about Adam’s sexuality affecting the final votes. Whether or not Adam Lambert lost to Kris Allen because people believe he’s gay is yet to be seen. There are even rumors about AT&T influencing Allen’s win.
What we do know is that Kris and Adam are both incredibly talented young men. When Barbara Walters asked Kara DioGuardi whether or not Adam’s sexuality swayed American Idol voters, Kara said, “I hope not… we should be judging on talent and viability in the music industry and they both had that.”
Finally rumors are flying around about Adam Lambert publicly making a statement about his sexuality. We’ll have to wait and see if this happens. In the meantime, check out Kara’s interview below.
What do you think? Is Adam Lambert gay? Does it matter? Has he always been out? Should he “officially” come out?
