Adam Lambert Responds to OUT Magazine Via Twitter

Screen shot 2009-11-17 at 6.33.17 PM

Adam Lambert responded to OUT magazine editor Aaron Hicklin, who suggested in his editor's letter for the 'OUT 100' issue that Lambert and his handlers, 19 Entertainment, were wary of having Lambert appear on the cover and asked the magazine not to ask certain questions for fear the singer would appear "too gay", a notion that Lambert's interviewer backed up.

Responded Lambert via Twitter: "Dear Aaron, it's def not that deep. Chill! Guess ya gotta get attention for the magazine. U too are at the mercy of the marketing machine. Until we have a meaningful conversation, perhaps you should refrain from projecting your publications' agenda onto my career."

  2. He doesn't want to support the gay community. So why should we support him?

  5. For a guy this young, who has been put under a microscope by the MSM, by his choice I know, he handles himself very well. It is clear that Hicklin, or should we call him Dicklin, is trying to use Lambert to sell his rag. Good for Lambert, fuck the douche bag.

    I haven't seen this so-called support. Where did you see this?

  8. No good can come of this. Hopefully they'll all calm their asses down. Go for a walk, paint the bathroom, toast a bagel. Find a better battle.

  9. His handlers are afraid of him looking too gay? where were they when they decided on his album cover?

  10. As if the cover of his album wasn't screaming queen already?

    Wait til it tanks, then he'll come crying to the gay community and will probably be consdered another 'hero'.

    RIP Gay print media

  12. OUT is so gay.

    Posted by: Kitty Boots | Nov 17, 2009 7:13:58 PM


  13. I really hope one of his handlers wrote this, because if not B* better be checking himself to tell someone not to "project [their] publication's [sic] agenda" onto his career before he already has one.

    What exactly is this "agenda" Glambert?

  14. So? Adam Lambert is a little bitch who wants his gay cake and his straight cake. Are we surprised?

  15. DONE with Adam ... the OUT Agenda is just what ... CIVIL EQUALITY ?

    Sorry Adam I am over your "career" ... taking to twitter is amazingly childish.

  16. Good for him. OUT was the one that chose to act like unprofessional asses and deserved to be called out. As for him not helping the gay community, since when has the gay community been behind him? I've rarely seen the "community" do anything but trash him for being "too gay", "too fat", "not masculine enough" and far worse.

    At any rate, I've seen more than a handful of straight people that have stated being a fan of his has helped them realize how, not only were they wrong in some of their views of gays, but how much crap we have to deal with and how we deserve to be treated like equals. He did that by being himself, not some fanatical agenda pusher. I seriously doubt OUT has ever done anything to convert straights to the cause of equality.

  17. I was an avid Lambert fan. Now, not so much. If the accusations are true and Lambert instructed OUT to tame down his flame for marketing purposes, I think Lambert should retire his eyeliner and sequins now.

    Being the "Great Gay Hope" isn't easy, but isn't that why you're being honored in the OUT 100 list in the first place?

  18. "DONE with Adam ... the OUT Agenda is just what ... CIVIL EQUALITY ?"

    Seriously? OUT is the gay version of Elle, hardly a leader in equality or rights issues.

    "Sorry Adam I am over your "career" ... taking to twitter is amazingly childish."

    And what Aaron did wasn't? You have a very odd sense of maturity.

  19. yawn

  20. Lambert has talent, but I could no more enjoy his singing than I could enjoy a screech owl. Even if I could tolerate such sonic crap, his attitude toward gay fans, gay media, gay culture, gay politics have been shown to be absolute shit.

    Nobody survives the American Idol experience with any semblance of human personality. He's another self-important douchebag just like Clay Aiken. Let's hope his career comes and goes just as fast.

  21. "I was an avid Lambert fan. Now, not so much. If the accusations are true and Lambert instructed OUT to tame down his flame for marketing purposes, I think Lambert should retire his eyeliner and sequins now."

    Jesus Christ, what ever happened to reading comprehension. Adam didn't say shit to OUT about anything not in the interview. According to the writer of the article, the 19m handler for Adam took the writer outside before the interview, away from Adam, and asked her to avoid politics. Not Adam; his handler.

    As for their previous attempt to get him during the show, ALL contestants are forbidden by contract from doing magazine articles until after the final episode. Perhaps OUT should have done their research. AfterElton seemed to have.

  22. I'm an Adam fan and want to support him... but his response smacks of prissiness.

    So your handlers got heavy handed and are trying to 'manage' your gay publicity.

    Own it and move on. Or craft a positive response, reaffirming your support for the gay community.

    Don't give out attitude yet - your singles so far have tanked and Idol runners up don't have the best chart track record. The gay community is a very loyal market.... just ask Cyndi!

  23. "I was an avid Lambert fan. Now, not so much. If the accusations are true and Lambert instructed OUT to tame down his flame for marketing purposes, I think Lambert should retire his eyeliner and sequins now. "

    Adam didn't say shit to OUT about any such thing. The writer of the article stated on her blog that his handler took her outside the interview area, away from Adam, and asked that she not ask political questions. Not Adam, his handler.

    The writer said herself that Adam wasn't likely to not answer such questions if she asked. It was his handlers that she had a problem with, not him.

    As for the cover story, I sincerely doubt 19 said any such thing considering other pics he has done and had published under their management. Really, if they didn't make him tone down the album cover, why on earth would they ask such a thing for a magazine not likely to be seen outside the gay community? He has never shied away from talking about being gay in any article I have ever read.

    Honestly, people should actually try reading things he has said instead of inferring based on their own prejudice. In fact, why not start with the full article OUT put on their own website.

  24. Prissiness is next to Godliness when it comes to Gayness.

  25. Met him and chatted with him, which is more than most have here. I get the impression that he wants to do things on his terms and at his pace, which I think he has every right to do.

    He's OUT, he's open....now he's apparently not gay enough for you? Let him get on with building his career. He deserves the space to create his own identity and career.

    All this said, I don't doubt that Nineteen Management were a bunch of assholes. They're the lowest of the low. Would sell their own mothers to make a dollar.
