2009 Rewind: Adam Lambert on Idol, Sexuality, True Blood and More!

by at . Comments

We told you Adam Lambert was everywhere.

The singer has appeared on The View, So You Think You Can Dance and Chelsea Lately over the last week. That's what happens when you're one of the 10 most-searched for celebrities on Google in 2009.

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the wildly popular singer dishes on the year of his life. As the excerpts below depict, he looks back on American Idol, coming out of the closet and more...

On American Idol: "I honestly didn't feel like I would get that far on the show. I thought, I'm not as conventional as American Idol usually likes. I just didn't expect the judges and the audience to be as supportive as they were."

On announcing he's gay: "I'm very comfortable with my sexuality, and very, very open about it, and have always been out, since I was out of high school..  after the competition was over, and I had made my mark, so to speak, I felt like then it was appropriate to talk about my personal life."

On an upcoming tour: "I think it's probably going to be springtime... I think it's not going to be a standard arena tour. We're going to do something a little different. My big goal is I want to create a show. I want to do something that's very visually dynamic, and is a little more interactive feeling than your typical arena tour."

On his favorite TV show: "I watched True Blood. I just love the tone of it. I really like what they're saying. In many ways, they're talking about our current civil rights issues, but under the guise of they're vampires. It's really sexy. The actors are fantastic. The storylines are captivating."

Sexy, fantastic and captivating? Lambert could be referring to himself with those descriptions.

Like Lambert alot. Not fanatical about it - but absolutely want to see him in concert. His CD is excellent, completely worth the purchase! On my Ipod, cd in the car - check it out people, it's good! His sales are doing just fine I think... he can totally live up to an arena tour if that's what he and his handlers want for him, no worries about that!

Adam Lambert is the most powerful entertainer. His set on the American Idol tour this summer ranked as the best concert performance of the year. WOW!

I also am 50's and have teenage daughter--both in love with Adam. I almost feel sorry for my poor husband who has become an internet widower. Even my teenage son loves Fever. We will all go see him! Adam is absolutely 100% addictive. Wish him great happiness and success for 2010!

Simply can't wait for Adam's tour: big arena, little arena, television, one-one-one (just a dream, you know), any time, any place. I need me some adam!!! New Year Nightmare: Heard rumor he may do international tour with Queen. Selfishly, I want him in America--I'm willing to travel far and wide to see Adam, but not sure I will be able to go to Europe

Somehow FYE managed to appeal to me, in my fifties - and my daughter who's 18!! How many artists can do that?? Yes, Glenda I agree. I am 55 and my daughter is 28 and we both love Adam. We don't always agree on music, but we loved Adam at first sight. We are anxiously awaiting his tour.

I will admit my addiction as well. I google Adam's name every day for any little bit of new info or something I may have missed previously. I am fascinated by him. I love his courage and conviction. I have gay friends who have experienced isolation and scorn for their sexuality. Good for Adam for embracing his sexuality openly.
Most of all I love his talent. His CD is a wonderful and clever variety of songs for all tastes. I drove 14 hours this summer just to see Adam on the Idol tour. I can't get enough of him. I can hardly wait for his tour.

Captivating, addictive, warm, uplifting, sweet, sexy. Adam has just started. I have never followed any talent like Adam Lambert. He has something that grabs you. He also knows how to stay up front and personal with his fans in a sincere way. Eye candy and an incredible voice. When did you say that show will be? I will be there with all my husband and my friends. He needs a TV special with Adam as center stage. Can not get enough ADAM.

I completely echo what Amanda says only I'm a little older so my pinups were Elvis Presley. When I first saw Adam on American Idol I turned to my husband and said this guy will be as big as Elvis - mark my words. Adam exudes sex appeal, talent, and charisma. He also has the best voice in the world in the category of pop or rock singing. I believe that Adam could sing anything he desired because he has the range. His voice is one of a kind - incredible!
