Adam Lambert: The New American Sex Symbol
Adam Lambert plays it straight in a steamy photo shoot for this month’s Details magazine, in which he defies his homosexuality and tongues a naked female model. He also grips her breasts and her behind—and apparently, he likes it.
“I am gay, but I like kissing women sometimes,” Lambert tells the mag. “Women are pretty. It doesn’t mean I’m necessarily sleeping with them.”
Nope, just appearing as if he’s sleeping with them. (It sells more albums..)
The photos are meant to challenge sexual norms and prove that Lambert’s sex appeal is not limited to a gay audience. He is a bisexual sex symbol, lusted after by both men and women. The photos were inspired by the fact that women hurl bras and panties at Lambert while he’s performing. And they don’t seem to care that Lambert, who is openly gay, isn’t the least bit interested in their feminine bits. To them, Lambert’s sexual preference is an exciting challenge; the best hard-to-get game ever.
Lambert, of course, is enjoying all the sexual attention. Much of his musical appeal after all, is enhanced by his sex appeal. According to Details, “Americans of every persuasion proved defenseless against Lambert’s vigorous pelvic exertions [on stage].” And he scoffs at any criticism of his super sexy act.
“I have no problem telling people, ‘You know what? I’m not your babysitter, and I’m not your church,’” Lambert tells Details. “They go, ‘Jesus loves you, too.’ One time I just blurted out, ‘I’m Jewish, okay? I don’t need another crucifix! This is not an appropriate gift for me!’”
“I know people are coming from a good place, but it can be offensive. Like, ‘Thank you, I’m not Christian! I don’t read that book.’”
