Though I wish he'd come out DURING the show, I'm glad he finally stood up and (evidently) said it.
I heard that his mother revealed that there was a contractual agreement with the producers of American Idol that they wouldn't discuss Adam's being gay during the run of the show, but in this article it sounds like he's saying it was his decision...
And what is up with the SNAKE (photoshopped in or not) in the cover photo??? That is an interesting... um, CHOICE. What the heck? Is the snake by Adam's crotch some sort of commentary on the dangers of coming out? being gay? Or is it supposed to be sexy, in a straight-culture kind of way? Or is it a nod to the purported "choice" in being gay - saying being gay is a kind of garden of Eden temptation?
One more time, everyone. There is NO CHOICE in whom your body and spirit find attractive. The CHOICE is whether or not you're going to be honest about who you are attracted to.
All in all, I can't wait to read the article...
And I promise, more commentary here when I do!
