Oh, Adam Lambert continues to surprise us.Â Um, by the way, heÂ used to beÂ an acne-riddenÂ redhead.Â What?Â In a recent story for Details Magazine, Adam participated in a photo shoot where he posed in awkward,Â riskay positions with a naked woman.Â This, of course, sparked a conversation about Adam’s sexuality and his outlook on kissing the opposite sex.Â Keep reading to hear all the details…
It’s no secret that Adam has mesmerized half the country with his eccentric personality and his amazingly good looks. Even though he’s openly gay,Â women everywhere areÂ throwing themselves at him. “I think it’s weird that I’m having this effect on women. It’s flattering. I’ve never had underwear thrown at me before. Clearly there’s something significant about it, because there aren’t a lot of openly gay men in the entertainment industry,” he told Details.Â ”When I’m onstage,” heÂ continued, “there’s definitely a sexual energy that goes into it.”Â
He then told gave the reporter an example of the sort of advances he has received from women while on the American IdolÂ tour. “There was one woman in Jersey who was actually gorgeous,” he said. “She had obviously had a couple of cocktails, and during an afterâ€“show meetâ€“andâ€“greet, she just slithered up next to me and started kissing my neck. I was cool with it. But then it started to get a little weird because she was, like, moaning. She gave me a note that said, ‘I want to make out with you, here’s my number,’ and I was like, wow, this is crazy. But again, it’s cool. Because yeah, I am gay, but I like kissing women sometimes. Women are pretty. It doesn’t mean I’m necessarily sleeping with them.”
“Of course, had I been the one drinking the cocktails,” he added, “I probably would have made out with her.”Â Adam also mentioned that his younger boyfriend wouldn’t have minded.Â
But Adam didn’t always exude the confidence that we see today.Â “I really struggled with my selfâ€“image for a long time,” he said. “I thought I was ugly. So that’s probably where all the makeup and the dyeing of the hair stemmed from.” (He’s really a redhead.)
