Last night, after SYTYCD, Adam made another appearance – on E!’s Chelsea Lately. An early commercial had host Chelsea Handler calling Adam ‘a woman’, and she promptly went on to introduce him as ‘the gayest thing to come out of American Idol since Clay Aiken’.. and the first questions dealt with Adam’s redheaded-ness and his weight. Perfectly cliché, hopes for good Adam moments weren’t high at that point.
However, Adam seemed to have a good time dealing with Chelsea’s sarcasm and quick wit – actually added in his own twist when the host invited him to come on her show whenever he felt the need to relive the AMA performance. She brought out a gay staff member who’d be happy to participate – after which Adam swiftly replied ‘Yeah, all gays like all gays, so you know.. Every man is attractive to every gay man, so it should work out!’. Touché. And an extra plus, he looked gorgeous as always!
From there, the conversation covered the album cover, Lady Gaga (He’s turning into her spokesperson. Seriously.), Madonna (‘we had a mutual friend who introduced us..’ Chelsea: ‘Lourdes?’), and what is probably a first for him on television, Adam feeling comfortable enough to discuss drugs – particularly his acid-tripping that led to him auditioning for Idol; yet casually steering away from the topic: ‘Protect the children!’
Overall, he seemed to have a good time, his infectious laughter and giggling apparent throughout the interview. And obviously, Chelsea was smitten with him!
