Adam Lambert: I’ve slept with closeted celebrities

The singer with Queen says he’s slept with high-profile closeted stars.

The American Idol star told Glamour magazine there were many very famous men who were not openly gay and he said: “I’ve been with a few of them.”

Asked why he thinks they haven’t come out, he said: “Whether it’s music or acting, you’ve got to remember that those industries are primarily run by men, so maybe it’s about that.

“But with women being the primary movie goers and record-buyers, surely it shouldn’t matter so much?”

Mr Lambert has previously said he believes the music industry is becoming less homophobic. He said: “It’s quickly changing along with society. I’m thrilled. We have entered a time with a much more level playing field.

He also said he had slept with a woman for the first time. “I’ve slept with a woman before. I did it for the first time when I was 29.

“It was a random thing but I was very curious. It felt great.

“I think women are beautiful – and I always notice when girls smell really good. Like most gay men, I’m drawn to confident women.”

In January the singer – who has been performing with the band Queen – talked about not wanting people to think he was “replacing” Freddie Mercury. 

He hopes singing with Queen will help open people’s minds.
