I’m sure we’ve all seen these pictures by now (below). All ardent Adam-holics get their news the second it’s out, right? The pictures don’t show anything shocking. Only someone out in public with their new love, holding hands. It’s just that “the someone” is Adam. “What was he thinking?” some may ask. “Doesn’t he know he hasn’t “come out” yet?”
Adam’s very smart. I’m thinking he did this on purpose, to negate the need for a Rolling Stone expose. I want his cover on Rolling Stone to be solely for the purpose of blasting his musical prowess to the rest of the world. Actually, according to the American Idol forums, it’s the rest of the world who get him. It’s the uptight, white bread, mayonnaise-loving viewers across this country who were too afraid to take their thoughts away from their pablum to think for themselves and recognize a legend in the making. Sorry if I’ve spoken too strongly. I didn’t name a specific geographic region because I know there are some right-minded independent thinking Adam-lovers there!
I for one, don’t want Adam to “come out,” I just want him to “be out,” like these pictures show. After all, his family already knows, his boyfriends know, his friends know, and his peers and cast mates know. And all of the viewers of Idol know – even if they don’t want to admit it.
Fame is a two-edged sword. One of the drawbacks of show business is losing your privacy. Only famous people need to “come out” publicly, plastered all over the cover of a magazine. Adam got onto the Idol singing competition with his eyes only on using it as a platform for his musical career. I truly believe him when he says that getting to the finale was his goal, not winning the title. Because first or second place, you were on TV and singing for America the same amount of time. From his incredible success on Idol, he’s now feeling the backlash of being famous. That you have to live for others first, people you don’t even know but probably feel some sense of loyalty to. Please Adam, think of yourself first. Everyone who loves you only want the best for you. Enjoy your new personal happiness – you don’t owe us anything. It’s us that owe you. We owe you your personal privacy, in return for the incredible pleasure you give us with your music, your personality, your performances, your style, your honesty, your open self, and everything else that is Adam Lambert.
