American Idol

Let him be

This article on Ricky.org got me thinking this beautiful Saturday morning about the kind of privacy issues that famous people face.

I think the reporter was asking a genuine question about what may have cost Adam to lose his game. But you have to admit that it was also a roundabout way of asking about his sexuality.

I mean — with due respect to whoever the reporter was — who knows Adam may get emotional and say, “yeah man.. they didn’t vote for me because I’m xxxxxxxx” and then bammm! he or she gets his/her exclusive!

But I believe Adam is classier and more media savvy than we realise. He’s really intelligent this Adam guy and I think he’s been through a lot in life — good and bad experiences — to make him mature enough to handle the pressures of “suddently” being in the limelight.

Fans and the media alike have been speculating about Adam Lambert’s sexual preference since incriminating photos of him popped up on the Internet.

I admit I was initially a bit uncomfortable seeing them simly because it felt like watching someone really close to me  engaging in sexual activities.

I mean, for example, you know your parents or older siblings with children have sex but you’d rather not think that they actually do it, let alone look at photos of them in the act, you know what I mean? *lol*

So, I just avoided looking at those photos.

But that doesn’t mean that I respect Adam less. In my last post, I’ve already declared how deeply I respect him as an artiste and a person who has shown tremendous grace and humility. Watch this phoner with Ellen DeGeneres to know what I mean.

Well, back to what I wrote earlier, it annoys me that people keep on trying to get him to admit to being homosexual at every chance (i.e interview) that they get.

Adam, on the other hand, has given them vague sound bites that give the reporters something, but not exactly what they wanted, to write about.

Some fans  wish that he would just “clarify the issue already”. But I’m glad he’s not giving in because it is none of anyone’s business whether he kisses boys or girls. By the way, I can direct you to the photos and videos to prove that he’s done both but that still doesn’t say anything concrete about his sexuality.

I don’t agree that just because he is now a celebrity, he is obliged to introduce to us his girl friend or boyfriend. If he wants to, he’ll do it in his own time, not because an entertainment reporter asks him to so they could get an exclusive.

I wish some people would just stop trying to “out” him. People will “come out of the closet” or remain in there forever and ever if and when they want to, thank you very much.

So, why don’t we just give that question a rest. At this rate, that question is ready to join one of those tired cliches that can be found in the lyrics of No Boundaries, the single which was foisted on poor Adam and Kris Allen. Well, tough luck for Kris because he gets to keep the single *lol*. I hope he changes the arrangement and make it more “Kris Allen-esque”.
