Adam Lambert never said himself as a gay despite his spreading pictures of he kissing a guy, but people are arguing that Adam's sexuality is to be blamed for his loss to Kris Allen on 'American Idol'.
beating Adam Lambert
as the new "American Idol" champ is out of prediction. This raises an argument whether Adam loses the "Idol" crown because of his sexuality since he recorded great performance during the season.
Adam, 27-year-old, never really proclaimed himself as a gay. He just stated, "I am who I am", when he was asked about the subject of his sexuality. However, pictures of him kissing another man has been spread through Internet during the season 8.
Some people think Adam's sexuality is a major factor determining his loss to Kris on "Idol", such as Annie Duke, recent "Celebrity Apprentice" runner-up, who said, "I seriously think Adam lost just because he is gay. Bummed. Bummed. Bummed." In opposite, Paul Katz from The Huffington Post believes that Adam would have not made until the top 2 if his gay rumor affected people's votes since his pictures kissing a guy has appeared weeks prior.
When asked about blogs saying, "If he wins [it's] because he's gay, or if he loses [it's] because he's gay,' Adam answered it jokingly, "Is that what they're gonna say? Those blogs have a lot of opinions, don't they? I think that Kris won because he's a great artist and I was happy to be a runner-up to that."
Adam continued, "If there's anything that can come from this experience, and I hope that all the fans out there can pick up on, is that even if you're really different, there's a way to get along with each other," adding, "And it's not about 'Oh, you beat me because of this,' or 'You, you're different.' It's about finding the common stuff that makes it work."
