Adam Lambert promises that he's about to address all the lingering questions about him.
"At this point, I think everybody knows everything, but once the Rolling Stone article comes out, people will know everything," the American Idol runner-up told us last night at the Young Hollywood Awards.
Reportedly, Lambert will officially come out of the closet next week in a cover story for the music magazine...
"I'm excited," he said. "I want people to know what's up. It's words coming out of my mouth!"
While accepting the Artist of the Year award, Lambert cracked, "People are always asking me what it’s like. There are all these rumors going around, and there are paparazzi."
"And there are the queen rumors—all of them," he added. (Coincidentally enough, this month marks the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which are credited as the birth of the gay rights movement.)
As for his recent verbal ping-pong with Clay Aiken, "I'm over it. I don't care about what he has to say," said Lambert, who shared more secrets for handling the attention with The Awful Truth.
And while Lambert has made it clear in previous interviews that he'd love to work with Madonna (like, no duh!), he also wouldn't mind some studio time with Missy Elliott.
"Something a little bit urban—something you can shake your booty to," he said. "I haven't really performed much hip-hop. But I think the two of us can team up with a cool kind of rock-hip-hop-dance-type jam. That would be pretty sick."
