Adam Lambert 'reveals' that he's gay

American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert spilled the beans in the latest issue of Rolling Stone that yes, you were right, he's gay. Also, there's no Santa Claus, it gets hot in the summer and tickets to a Yankees game cost too much.

Tbd-adamlambert061009 "I don't think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I'm gay," Lambert says in an interview. "I've been living in Los Angeles for eight years as a gay man."

The fun part of the dirt come, however, when he reveals that he had a crush on his nemesis (on the show, anyway) and eventual victor, Kris Allen, whom he roomed with during the season.

"I was like, 'Oh, s–, they put me with the cute guy,' " Lambert says. "Distracting! He's the one guy that I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type – except that he has a wife. I mean, he's open-minded and liberal, but he's definitely 100 percent straight."

We'll bet Mrs. Allen is glad to hear that. So does Adam want the gay thing to be a big deal? Certainly not.

"I embrace it," he says. "It's just another part of me. ... I'm trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.
