Last year’s runner-up to the winner on "American Idol" wants the world to know that he is gay but he was never in the closet, according to MTV News.
Citing an interview with Adam Lambert in Out magazine, MTV says that Lambert has been accused of letting the public think he was straight — or bisexual — while competing on the Fox show last season.
"There was never any deliberate, like, ‘I’m going to hint now…’ because I was never in the closet," he said. Lambert’s first solo CD since the show came to an end, "For Your Entertainment," will be released next week.
