Adam Spotlighted in Conan O’Brien’s Monologue!

In Conan O’Brien’s monologue on his second night hosting the Tonight Show, Conan says: “Big celebrity news. American Idol singer Adam Lambert is gonna be on the cover of the next Rolling Stone. And in the interview, gonna finally admit he’s gay. That’s right . . . yep . . . and in other really obvious music news, Amy Winehouse drinks a bit.”

Thankfully the Tonight Show goes out to all of America. By having the message come from as innocuous a source as Conan, the message is softened, and is now mainstream and starts being “ho hum” news. This can only help Adam see success even faster across the boards.

For all those who worry about Adam and his career, this is another sign that he is going to be just fine! He will be accepted and will receive the accolades from the masses that we fans have been bestowing on him since day one!

About Carol

I started writing on this site back in May 2009, not knowing what I was in for or where it would take me. I had no idea of the joy and personal satisfaction I'd find here. I never dreamed that I'd get to meet Adam, but that dream came true! The bonus of becoming such great friends with Lila and the other fans is what keeps me going. Music gets me though every day. In addition to Adam, I love Muse, Linkin Park, 80s and finding newer bands and supporting them by attending everything that's within 350 miles. With Adam, the boundaries are farther! Thanks for joining us on this ride! :)

    Adam needs to kiss a girl and like it, have it captured on film and keep some of his female fans pumping hormones over him like they are doing now. Otherwise, his career seems to be on track. I look for him on Saturday Night Live soon, that would be terrific, he is comedic and sings rather well too, they would do well to get him to appear as a guest.

    • Nahhh, he’s hot no matter who he is kissing or isn’t kissing. How about “I kissed a guy and I liked it”? But ITA about SNL.
      Conan was funny, stating the obvious.

    • I really think this is wrong cuz why should he pretend to be something else just to make ppl happy !!!! no he should stay exactly the way he is cuz we love him just like this and his sexual orientation change nothing we loved him cuz he is Adam Lambert not cuz he is straight or anything else!!
      well i am a straight girl but i see him sexier than ever like this really 🙂

      • AdamAddict says:

        He already makes us happy by singing for us! His beautiful voice touch our soul! He doesn’t have to kiss anyone or anything to please us. I’m happy just seeing him happy and I believe all his fans feel the same too!

        • I WHOLEHEARTEDLY AGREE WITH YOU. I AM A STRAIGHT FEMALE AND LOVE HIM, NO MATTER WHAT HIS LIFESTYLE IS, ITS HIS BEAUTIFUL VOICE, CHARISMA, AND KINDNESS THAT SET HIM APART FROM ALL THE REST. I WISH ONLY THE BEST FOR HIM NOW AND HIS VERY SUCCESSFUL FUTURE.

    • SUsan L says:

      I am one woman who has no need to see Adam kissing a woman to get excited by him! I think the pictures of him kissing other boys are pretty hot. I think there are a lot of women out there who respond to his “ominsexualtiy”. He is sexy across the board. Just take a glance at the lengthy commentary running on the “Is Adam Redefining Sexy” piece. I think straight men could take a few lessons from Adam on how to attract women!

      • MsWrite says:

        Susan, you nailed that! And love the term “omnisexuality!” You’re so right that so often straight men don’t get it *sigh* if only this were the first (or last) time.

        • Gioconda says:

          ITA with you Susan….

        • If you read today’s NY Times Style section about men’s fashion (where the writer David Colman mentions Adam!), it talks about how men are actually “becoming a lot more like women” in terms of finding style that flatters their bodies and is actually fitting rather than so sloppy. It’s an interesting piece—maybe there’s hope–at least in the area of appearance!

          • AdamAdmirer says:

            Thanks for this info, I’ll have to look – also, I can’t wait to see him in GQ, W, and the rest. Adam has great style and I’m sure the fashion gurus can’t wait to get ahold of him to grace their pages.

  2. I *almost* agree with Tom. I REALLY hope he keeps everyone guessing for a while longer by at LEAST giving the girls a little “sumthin’ sumthin'” every now and then. But then again, I don’t want him to be fake either. There’s ENOUGH of that in the music industry as is. I don’t want my favorite music artist to be more of the same. If it frees him creatively and personally to free himself of other people’s expectations/speculations about his penis…then more power to him. Just Do It!!! But as a straight girl, it REALLY does something to you when you’re at a concert and your favorite artist locks eyes with you (or just looks in your general direction LOL) and you instantly BELIEVE your fantasies that YOU may ACTUALLY have a shot in hell with this guy…only to be let down by the realization that he’s looking over your left shoulder at the cute guy behind you!!! LOL!!! Luckily for Adam (and US) that he has enough of that indescribable luscious that is him to go around for everybody!!!

    It’s great too to see other entities outside of the AI media blitz have picked up on Adam and have recognized that America has recognized him!! Now all we need is to see Adam PARODIED on Saturday Night Live!!! Then we KNOW he’s made it then!!! We may have to wait a minute for the SNL hosting/performance gig. If any AI ’09 contestant appears on SNL, it’ll be Kris since he won. Then most likely Adam afterwards. Since they have the tour, then the albums and the promotion I’m thinking sometime next season like the premiere (hopefully *crosses fingers*) in the fall.

    Great blog though. I never thought about the idea of using the mainstream media to “soften the blow” of Adam’s so-called “coming out”. Very ineresting, clever and hopefully effective!

  3. “Adam needs to kiss a girl and like it”? Tom, you’re joking right? People love Adam because he is known for being true to himself. He needs to kiss and like the one he loves, and that appears to be Drake. Good for them, and good for us because they’re a hot couple.

    • Yep! Yep! Yep!

      Enough with the jaded ideas about how to keep Adam ‘marketable’. The reason he inspires so many is that he is a breath of fresh, (honest) air! Will some tweens girls out there be disappointed that Adam will never be their boyfriend and lose interest in his music? Probably. Will the Bill O’s of the world keep questioning his appeal based soley on his sexual orientation? I’m sure. Will Adam still be a run-away success story, inspiring thousands (or millions?) of people who have a broad enough view of the world to appreciate genuine talent? Absolutely!!

      Babe just needs to keep on doing what he does best – be his BEAUTIFUL (sexy to all walks of life) self!

  4. I really hope with all my heart ppl accept Adam just the way he is and don’t hold this against him cuz his life should never be something that ppl go against him 4 !!! ppl need to let others live their life the way they want to live it … simple as that … absolutely no one has the right to judge others cuz if u want to judge then start with yourself then go 4 others !!… i love Adam the way he is and i don’t want him to change anything i loved him like this and will always love him …. cuz i am a little worry about him and his career he is s real star and ppl should embrace him the way he is 🙂 I hope all his fans stick with him cuz it not about his personal life but cuz of hi amazing qualities that he have which is amazing at every level 🙂

  5. I don’t care about Adam’s sexuality just like I didn’t care about anybody that’s HOT! It’s not like I’ll ever get to be with them anyway, so what’s the difference. He lives his life and I enjoy my fantasies. Reality and fantasy need not be connected.

  6. JRZGRL1 says:

    This whole discussion, to some extent, is based on our societal fixation on sexuality as one of two opposite extremes e.g. you’re either gay or you’re straight. One or the other – no in between. The reality is that 90% of us are in that in between, sometimes uncomfortable grey zone. Adam is a unique human being and his sexuality is part of who he is but it doesn’t define him and it doesn’t make his singing and performing any less sexy to anyone, including me, an aging lesbian. I just adore him – he doesn’t need to kiss a girl to make anyone happy. I agree with Deb – we love Adam because he’s damned good at what he does and we can have all the fantasies we want.

    • suebella says:

      totally agree with every word JRZGRL1…..from another aging lesbian….!!!!
      Adam has made me feel young again, lifted me from depression and re-awakened my fantasies (to my wife’s benefit)…!!!!
      I am so looking forward to his coming career,
      and the bonus is he is such a nice person and a marvellous role-model…
      oooooh………….he is just beautiful in every way!!!!!

  7. glambertfan says:

    I’m quite confused.Adam do kiss a girl in wicked.just not his preference.is it means pretending?I don’t think so.he also kiss allisan on cheek in backstage.there was video on youtube.why do we presume gay can’t kiss girl,and will feel gross?I thought he said “it was nice.” kiss is just passionate expression of intimacy..of course .definitly won’t be french kiss.but I think he will kiss female fan if he feel their adorable or likable.of course in cheek.lol..

    • It’s called acting. That’s what actors do on stage….or did you think that every time you watch a kiss in a play, movie or television show that the actors are actually in love with each other? I hate to be so snarky, but COME ON!

      And then there’s friendship, like Adam’s with Allison or Kris…do you never kiss your friends glambertfan? Your response makes me think you need to open yourself up a bit to a wider range of interactions with people. Not everything is so black and white.

  8. I TOTALLY know what BEAUTY is talking about above. Like it or not, girls love to fantasize about their celeb obsessions and imagine that they could quite possibly have a chance with that person should they ever cross paths – as unlikley as that may be!

    I’m not saying that Adam should be anything he’s not, just agreeing with BEAUTY’s point about how girls love the fantasy!

    • MsWrite says:

      This is true, however, the awesome thing in all of this is we’re all being given the chance to evolve and grow and assess what fantasies, realities and art we respond to. Young girls are likely more flexible in this than we “older girls” are. The last post about what makes Adam sexy proves that we are all trying to define it in our world, in ourselves and Adam. I think it’s an incredible thing and truly a driving force in our current societal evolution.

      Who knew Randy of all people would have been the prophet when Adam walked into the audition, “I think currently, it’s time for someone like you.” No truer words have been spoken.

      P.S. In the spirit of full disclosure, I’m also Suse 1701, I didn’t realize my other name was saved ony phone.

  9. eww whoever told him to kiss a girl wtf? NO NO NO!!! im a straight girl and I have NO desire for adam to be straight. i like him being gay. its awesome, i mean, seeing him with another hot guy? i could get into that, but seeing him with a girl, YUCK!!! i dont want some girls hands on adam.

    and in more serious news, its WHO HE IS. he doesnt need to change or put on an act for ANYBODY. you rock the gayness adam!!

  10. Blambert says:

    It seems Adam is the smartest, by not letting anyone or anything get in his way.

    All Adam fans appreciatte this fact and love him all the more for it.

    He is setting a great example by living his life the way he wants it to be,
    and is carving his own road to success.

    Let’s all focus on the positive and be thankful that we have someone to be proud of!

  11. Lisette here,
    Thenks for this poste agan dreamsounde,a place for all Adam’s frends an fans.An hering Conan
    an his sarcastique humour..no mattre whet Adam’s lifestyle choice is,or whet he wishes to keep a bit of mystere or subtle hints in photos etc..Thet’s his perogative to share or reveale.An being openminded agan respecte his privacy,although in l’entertainmente is quite difficile given paparazzi,media,etc. An so for femmes who wish to fantasize thet’s there perogative,an splendide.

    I wish the media would refocus onto his abilities. I really do. I am so sick of it all that is has put a damper on my google searching anything Adam. I figured Adam was bisexual after his hiccup during Black & White, and then after seeing Ring of Fire. I never cared, my husband and kids didn’t care and I wish the media would drop it already. First round was the “voting scandal” now this? Come on people, let’s refocus! Upon one of my google searches months back, I stumbled upon Adam’s original myspace page and he lists himself as bisexual. Wait until the media gets wind of that….boring!

    Just let me hear the guy sing, and watch him perform, let me listen to how well spoken he is on interviews.

  13. Glamazon says:

    Adam is the total package: amazing talent, great personality, gorgeous looks, very sexy, well-spoken and together. If you get Adam and LOVE him, you accept him for who and what he is.
    I’ve read the posts and he has fans of all ages, sexes and all around the world. I know his journey to stardom has only begun with where idol left off. I wish Adam the best of everything and we can can”t wait to see/hear more from him….ADAM is the best!!!!

  14. Adam in prime time! Can’t get enought of him! We want to see more Adam….

  15. TO ALL THE KNOW-IT-ALL WRITERS WHO PRETEND THAT ADAM LAMBERT’S SEXUAL ORIENTATION IS UNIMPORTANT, THEN CONTINUE WRITING ABOUT IT AD NAUSEUM, ENOUGH ALREADY!

    I HOPE HE IS STRAIGHT AND LEADING YOU ALL UP THE GARDEN PATH WITH EGG ON YOUR FACES.

    LOVE

    SUZANNE XO

  16. I hope he is fooling all of you people who keep saying hes gay but no matter what he is I dont care, We all love some ADAM LAMBERT!!!!

  17. Suse1701 says:

    Again, as I think I mentioned, I’ve never been a fan of the sentiment, “Any publicity is good publicity,” but I have to say, in this case, it’s kind of true. We want to keep Adam’s name in the press. And really, for the most part, the coverage and response has been pretty respectful.

    Yes, it’s ridiculous anyone has the nerve to ask this. No, it’s no one’s business, but the reality is, people are going to talk. Conan and other comedians skewered Clay for years because he tried to hide his sexuality. That’s comedy folks. His mention of Adam was quite respectful too (yet still got a laugh). If Adam were to try to hide, that’s when they’d come after him and he is smart enough to not deny, not confirm and cheerfully turn the questions back on those who ask.

    And in the lag-time between the finale and the RS cover (and there will be another gap between that and the release of his album), his handlers are keeping his name in the media and the public consciousness, even going a step further by branching him out to the non-AI audience.

    In the meantime, he’s charming the media, upping his mystique and intentionally or unintentionally, rousing a largely – from my observation – intelligent dialogue about our country’s views on sexuality, privacy, the media and his talent, which it always comes back to.

    As long as he is not being hurt by this, from a PR perspective, it’s rather ingenious.

  18. Deb From Oz says:

    He is a very clever cookie, no doubt about it! All this carry-on about sexuality is pretty irrelevant.. I just want to hear him SING!!!!

  19. Annette says:

    A year from now…when Adam has the #1 CD…people will hopefully be over all this sexuality stuff, and see him for the amazing musical talent that he is..period!

  20. Why is the media not questioning the other Idol contestants “are you straight”? What difference does it make? They are lots of both straight and gay rock stars; Adam is a phenomenal performer and that is all that should matter.

  21. Deborah says:

    I’m hooked on him whether I like it or not!! And that’s because of his voice, his talent, his sex appeal, his genteelness, his confidence, his smoldering darkness, his kindness to others, his humility, his performances, his ….I guess you get the picture here.

    …………sorry what was this article about?

    Adam. I just love even saying his name.
    ; )

    • I feel exactly the same way, never get tired of looking at him or listening to him…..just can’t ever get enough! He just drives me crazy and makes me feel like a kid again. Looking forward to seeing him on the tour, but really can’t wait for a solo concert. Imagine…two hours of Adam, that will be heavenly! Just talking about him leaves me breathless.
      Adam, Adam, Adam, a rose by any other name would not be so sweet.

  22. adamfancajungirl says:

    I don’t care if Adam is gay. Whatever he does in his private life is his business. What I care about is his talent. I love watching his videos everyday. I never did that before with any other singer.I love everything about him. I will always be a fan.

  23. SleepyBee says:

    Thanks, Conan. Now even more people will be clearing the shelves of Rolling Stone. I may not even get a copy. Our Adam is costing me some coin. First, the DVD recorder to get him out of my DVR, which he filled up with his magnificence. Then the iPod, so my husband wouldn’t have to continuously listen to the 50+ selections I’ve downloaded (he thinks Adam’s great, too, but come on-24/7?). Now I guess I’ll have to subscribe to every periodic publication to which Adam might decide to grant a piece (even that sounds suggestive, doesn’t it?). Not to mention the AI tour tickets, requiring overnight lodging. If he ever plays the Paris Opera House, that will be a first for me, too. I’m so obsessed, I don’t understand it myself, so I couldn’t possibly explain it.
    Wow! Adam is talking on the Sumbody & Bob show and it’s feeding in! Where’s this coming from? Heaven?

  24. wow – thanks for the quick reply. will wait and then get my glamb#

  25. Monica Brennan says:

    Will Adam really be on the cover of the next Rolling Stone issue?

  26. Eclipse says:

    Remember Brian/Justin on QAF ? – straight women were some of their biggest fans…..once that show went off we have been in limbo. Now at last a new focus who is also multi-talented and entertaining. Paying customer here just waiting for Adam’s first CD and tour.

  27. hopefully this will soften the media’s attacks on him…i want to hear music, see his amazing performances, listen to that beautiful voice…not listen to people question if he’s gay or not…

  28. Deiondra says:

    good for conan its about time someone made people feel stupid for gossiping about adam’s sexuality. Its like yea it is totally obvious, and shouldn’t matter anyways!
