Apparently there’s been some confusion over whether Adam Lambert is gay or not (Wow. Seriously?), so American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi took it upon herself to set the record straight on The View, according to Us Magazine:
“I don’t think that Adam was ever in [the closet],” she says in a taped interview airing Friday on ABC’s The View. “I think he was always openly out.”
Walters then asked again if Lambert — who has never publicly said he’s gay — “was always openly out.”
“I think he was,” DioGuardi replies. “I mean, from what I’ve seen … I do. I never thought he wasn’t.”
Asked by Barbara Walters whether Lambert’s perceived sexuality may have influenced Idol voters, DioGuardi says, “Well, first of all, I hope not … because we should be judging on talent and viability in the music industry and they both [Lambert and winner Kris Allen] had that.”
Wanna know how I knew Adam Lambert is gay? He was on AMERICAN IDOL. And before anyone’s panties get in a bunch, I would’ve thought the same thing if he was a woman, robot or ham sandwich. So relax.
