I posted this also on the AI forum. One of the posters on the "Muse" video thread said Adam is also singing a Bowie song - 5 songs total. Yesterday, I got the last two copies of RS at my local B&N. So, I have an extra if any one has trouble securing getting a copy. I won't be a spoiler (unless you want me to be) lol, but it answered one of the questions we've been discussing here, and quite possibly another. Excellent article.

What is Tuesday?

Wouldn't you know it, I forgot to check this thread on Friday and didn't know about the 20/20 interview until about 10:45 that night. Well after his appearance. It just seemed like he dropped out of sight and I attributed that to maybe the tour starting up.

I just saw it on the ABC link! American Idol's Adam Lambert on His Sexuality: 'I'm Gay,' 'I'm Bi-Curious' - ABC News This might work.

I've had just about enough of Gene Simmons giving Adam advice. He needs to shut up himself. I think Adam was smart in the way he handled the issue. BTW - I read Kris is "flattered" that Adam found him attractive, and he thinks it's hilarious.

Clip:
And the way he did it - both brazenly and playfully, posing on the cover with a come-hither stare and a snake running up his leg - represents a different sort of trajectory for a rock star. Rather than coming out midcareer, after gaining a measure of public support, Lambert is asking audiences to accept him first, and make him a star afterward.
"There is something very contemporary about it - the fact that he is speaking openly about his sexuality, defusing it at a very early point in his career, making his calculation that he is going to be able to be a big success," said Tavia Nyong'o, a professor of performance studies at New York University who studies race and sexuality in the arts. "He's doing something very new and uncharted in pop culture."

Gene Simmons to Adam Lambert: Shut up about being gay
Jeez. It's not like Adam is pushing his agenda down, he just decided to end all the gossip and speculation. Are Gene Simmons' eyes starting to turn slightly greenish with Adam?

That's exactly what I think. Check the addition on my last post. Adam is breaking new ground by coming out now instead of mid career. Adam doesn't need any advice from old "green eyes".

I know it's not my doing LOL but it gives me some pleasure and pride to be able to figure it our back in February or whenever he sang that "Ring of Fire". Reading various venereal mags and professionals of all sorts - supporting and analyzing that, is amusing!

I think he is a bit jealous for sure. Also, does anyone else find it odd coming from someone that feels his entire life is special enough for it's own reality series.
