A hotly anticipated Rolling Stone cover story featuring "American Idol" runner-up Adam Lambert hits newsstands this week.
This issue ends speculation regarding flamboyant Lambert's sexuality. "I don't think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I'm gay," Lambert, 27, tells the magazine.
Lambert, who recently signed with 19 Recordings and RCA Records, adds he's proud of his sexuality. But he cautions, "I'm trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader."
