With more and more people becoming open with others’ sexualities (or their own, in any case), it’s only fitting that we pay tribute to those moments that truly awed us. Here are Hollywood’s 10 proudly gay celebs!
He’s almost as busy as Lady Gaga. Okay, that’s not really the case, but Adam Lambert’s has been making his rounds in the UK, fresh from his stint in Tokyo, Japan.
What’s a Grammy show without those who’d dare stun us with their choice of threads, crazy antics, or mere celebrity presence? Read on to see why these five stars incurred a little gasp from yours truly.
Yesterday I raved about the best-dressed women at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Now it’s the guys’ turn. I know there’s nothing much they can don other than ties and tuxedos, but there are a few stylish men who add the extra oomph to an otherwise conventional suit.
He may have tried to act goofy for this photo op, but Eli Roth (whose movie Inglorious Basterds won Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture)’s plaid suit made him more hottie than funny.
Glee’s bad boy Mark Salling (left) went retro with this gray number. He joined fellow gleeks (L-R) Jenna Ushkowitz, Jessalyn Gilsig and Matthew Morrison for a photo op after their show won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
Although head-to-toe black is a safe choice, not many guys can stylishly pull it off the way Kevin Bacon did. The Taking Chance actor also took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries.
Gay rights activists are all up in arms and their target is ABC. Everyone has heard of Adam Lambert’s stunts on stage at the AMAs, and we all know that ABC cancelled his appearance/performance after. They did, however, go through with an interview of Chris Brown – with a performance to boot. Now what’s wrong with this picture? Cancelling on a gay performer is okay and featuring a girlfriend beater is okay, too? Ummm…is it just me or is ABC calling the wrong shots?
The keyboard player that Adam Lambert kissed on stage is straight, but according to Adam, he didn’t mind the kiss. After all, it was all for entertainment’s sake. It was not planned, but maybe it was hinted during rehearsal. He hasn’t said anything about the issue, though. Maybe he liked it?

I didn’t want to use the word “shock,” but that’s what people are saying. Good Morning America canceled Adam’s appearance following the controversial performance he gave at the AMAs. They say he’s alienating his fans. I think he’s just being himself and trying to prove his flair for showmanship as well. Does anyone disagree?
Good news to those of you who have been yearning after Adam Lambert: he is now single! The bad news? I don’t think he his available. He did break up with his partner, Drake LaBry, but the reason is not because they don’t want to be with each other anymore. It’s simply because of Adam’s crazy schedule that comes with his career. Sources say they’re friends and that there was little drama behind the split.
He was a hit from the start, and even when he openly admitted that he is gay, Adam Lambert’s fan base did not suffer. Indeed, it was to be expected. Now he is on the road with fellow Idol contestants, but he says that his relationship with boyfriend Drake LaBray is going strong.
KISS front man Gene Simmons thinks that Adam’s admitting that he is gay “effectively stopped the handsome 20-something’s career in its tracks.” I think that Simmons just might be wrong. After all, this is a new era, and it’s not like everyone KNEW that Adam’s gay even before he admitted it! Some alpha males may be put off, but I am pretty sure that his being gay has not total ruined his career.
Adam Lambert’s career is off to a good start. He was always a favorite back in the Idol days, and now, his album is set to be launched earlier than expected. His first single was also released Friday. Title “Want,” it has been receiving favorable reviews. This one’s someone to look out for.
Clay Aiken bashed Adam Lambert in his official blog saying that he only watched one episode of AI this season, and that was when Adam performed Ring of Fire. He said it was “contrived, awful, and slightly frightening.” Simon, is that you?
Anyhow, Adam said that he has no hard feelings – and that he does not know Clay. Poor Clay, his statements seem contrived to me.
Kris’ fans are more than ecstatic that he won the title of American Idol but Adam Lambert’s fans are more than disgruntled. Now, rumors are circulating that AT&T “helped” some people from Allen’s hometown so that they could vote, giving him an unfair advantage. What do you think of this?
What can I say? Maybe Suri was right! The votes have been cast and America has decided that their next idol is Kris Allen. I guess Lambert’s antics were too much for the public. Congratulations, Kris!
Suri Cruise was there to watch history during the finals of American Idol. It seemed, however, that the little girls ears were too sensitive to the piercing sound of Adam Lambert’s voice. She was seen with her ears covered at one point!
I am sure many are disappointed like me, but Danny Gokey is not going to the finals. Instead, we will be seeing Adam Lambert and Kris Allen in the finals of American Idol. Despite the fact that my favorite is out, the finals ought to be a good one. Who is your bet?
