We already got the shocking, NO-WAY! reveal in Rolling StoneAmerican Idol runner-up Adam Lambert is gay. Still, as Chris Connolly points out in the video embedded here, last night on 20/20 was the first time he talked about it on TV. Oh! Well that is an event. The seven-plus-minute segment didn’t unearth much — he’s gay, he didn’t want to put it all out there during the Idol competition, he played dress-up as a kid. There is a sentimental-piano-backed moment where his mom lovingly and casually talks about supporting her son throughout his life. I guess if I had to pick one highlight from the interview, it was the moment he provided hope for all the swooning tween girls unbothered by the fact that Adam likes boys: “I wouldn’t ever give myself the label bisexual, but bi-ciurous, yeah. I’ve been known to make out with girls from time to time. Couple drinks invovled, you know, it’s fun. And who knows, maybe it’ll go further someday, I dunno. Who’s the lucky woman…” Keep those gals-a-gushin’. Smart move, Glambert.
