In very shocking news, AI’s Adam Lambert has confirmed what the world already knew, that he is indeed gay. Adam appears on the cover of the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine.
“I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay,” says the American Idol runner-up.
Adam continues, “I’m proud of my sexuality. I embrace it. It’s just another part of me.” Adam however is wary of becoming the poster boy for gay civil rights, “I’m trying to be a singer, not a civil rights leader.”
Adam also says he didn’t want to “come out” on American Idol, but rather wanted to do it on his own terms. “I was worried that [coming out] would be so sensationalized that it would overshadow what I was there to do, which was sing,” Lambert tells the mag. “I’m an entertainer, and who I am and what I do in my personal life is a separate thing. it shouldn’t matter. Except it does. It’s really confusing.”
In other news, Adam also signed a record deal with RCA Records. His record is set to be released this fall. We reported yesterday that AI winner, Kris Allen has also signed his record deal.
First the duo, Heidi and Spencer Pratt tried to quit a couple of times before they finally quit, only to return. They were placed in the “Lost Chamber” for 14 hours. (She and Spencer were sentenced to the spider-filled room while the cast voted if they could remain on the show after quitting last week.)
According to their rep, several false and inaccurate reports were circulating that the duo were tortured. Heidi Pratt’s rep confirms to Usmagazine exclusively that she wasn’t tortured on the set of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.
Following the Pratts getting out of the lost chamber, Heidi was rushed to the hospital Saturday night.
TMZ reported Heidi was being treated for a gastric ulcer, while Spencer’s sister, Stephanie, seems to blame NBC. She posted on Twitter: “I’m really saddened to hear that NBC felt it was ok to punish speidi so harshly and torture them as if they were criminals — that Heidi was…rushed to the hospital and has an IV in her arm after being locked in a dark room for 3 days w no food or water. Pls pray she will be ok.”
“She has been released from the hospital and is doing well,” the rep goes on. “The couple remains in Costa Rica. In addition, it was reported the Pratts have fired their legal counsel. This is inaccurate.”
Rock of Love star, Bret Michaels may have suffered a fractured nose and a busted lip after injuring himself during an opening number at the 63rd annual Tony Awardswhich took place Sunday night, his rep announced Monday.
During the elaborate musical number that featured Dolly Parton, Elton John and Liza Minnelli, the reality star was knocked to the ground after running into a piece of scenery. He had hit the stage to perform “Nothin’ But a Good Time” with his band Poison and the cast of Broadway’s Rock of Ages.
Bret informed Usmagazine before the accident, “I came here for one reason – to put on the show and then go party. I’m ready to go party and have a good time.” Following the accident, Michaels went to the hospitals to get his X-rays.
Despite the accident, his publicist says that Michaels had a blast performing at the awards.
Jillian Harris continues her search for true love tonight on The Bachelorette, as she continues to “date” the remaining 13 bachelors. I haven’t been blogging much about this show though I have been watching. Not sure if it has to do with the bad taste the whole Jason Mesnick/Melissa Rycroftfiasco left in my mouth, but this season hasn’t been as interesting to me.
While Jillian’s season has been a tad boring, the guys have yet to disappoint. Plus we finally get to find out tonight that one of the men actually has a girlfriend. Something about this reminds me of a VH1 dating show, so tonight’s episode should be GOOD.
And let’s not forget the very creepy bachelors casted for Jillian -
We’ll start with foot fetish enthusiast Tanner P. I mean wow – does he not see how extremely creepy he comes across? More importantly, how can Jillian not send this creeper packing? All he talks about is “sucking on some toes.” Does he even know what Jillian looks like? because he seems to solely (pun intended) focus on her feet during all their one on ones. Something tells me he is on some city’s sex offender registry.
And next we have David, who is in dire need of some form of anger management/therapy. The only thing that stands out about him is his loud mouth and multiple tattoos. He seems way more concerned with Juan than he is with Jillian. Still not sure why he made it his mission to bring down Juan.
Finally, we have 35 years old Juan, who is the most hated guy in the house. Are the guys simply jealous of him or do they have a valid reason for hating him? I’m not sure I know the answer to this, as these reality shows are able to get creative with the editing. From what I have seen, I don’t see any valid reason they have to hate him.
Recently eliminated contestant, Sasha touches on this topic in his new interview below -
On Juan, the Most Hated Man in the House: “The whole house was against him. It was like instantaneous. Everyone was on it, but David just hates the guy. He’s like, ‘He’s a snake. He’s this he’s that.’ He will bury himself. Everyone thought Juan was a spy, working for the show. He’ll kind of alienate himself, and then when he needs to be in the picture, he’ll look like he’s just one of the guys hanging out when in reality he wasn’t doing any of that.”
On David’s Anger Issues: “His dad had three heart attacks [by age] 50, so it just runs in the family. Some things just bug you. Dave just has a personal mission to almost destroy [Juan] and just make sure he doesn’t move forward in the process. Obviously, there are some anger-management issues going on.”
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS SEASON OF THE BACHELORETTE?
In an all new interview with VH1, Brittaney “Jasmineva” Starr talks about her time on Charm School. She talks about being ostracized, being empowered from porn, bathroom imprisonment and how she’s actually “a pretty normal person at home.”
Below are excepts from her new interview -
Your time on the show seemed tumultuous.
Yeah, it was OK. I was disappointed not to see Sharon Osbourne. I know how 51 Minds edits and the role they insist on making me play into, and I’d never have agreed to go on another show for them had I known the headmistress wasn’t going to be Sharon. I think she’s an amazing woman and I have the highest respect for her and her family.
But not Ricki Lake?
I have respect for Ricki, but I don’t follow her. Sharon’s the coolest. I was really excited to meet her. Ricki seemed nice until I saw the show and what she said about me, which wasn’t nice of her.
Are you talking about her comment about porn not being empowering?
No! She’d barely met me for five minutes and she called me a kook.
During your exit interview, though, you did admit to being “a little psycho.”
(Laughs) You know when I was wearing the pink DJ headphones and Stryker asked me about them? I replied that I wanted to represent that I was a DJ so the world would know what I did, since the show kept making me out as the crazy ex-porn star. So they of course edited that out and just showed my “wicka-wicka” dance, when I was emulating scratching records. Watching that, I totally laughed at myself. I thought it was funny how they edited all the silly stuff together. What’s life without laughter, right?
TMZ reports Kelly has been ordered to two days of community service. If you recall, Kelly was arrested in March after allegedly giving her boyfriend, Nicholas Stefanov, a black eye and slicing his cheek in an argument at her Manhattan apartment.
Kelly said outside of the courtroom today that she believed “justice was served.”
I’m guessing that in Kelly world, being sentenced for assaulting someone means justice for her – the assaulter.
Kris Allen has officially signed a record deal. The American Idolwinner has inked a deal with Jive Records and 19 Recordings.
Kris says in a statement, “As exciting as the last few months have been, I’m really looking forward to what is next. I’m very grateful to be working with Simon Fuller and his team at 19 Entertainment, along with Barry Weiss and Jive Records, on my debut album.”
And what should the fans expect from his new album? “It will be very similar to what you heard from me on the show — definitely in the pop/rock genre. I can’t wait to get started!” Allen said. His album is slated for a fall release.
