Adam's Rolling Stone cover and interview

Here's the highly anticipated Rolling Stone cover:

I want a giant poster of it for the living room. It could use a bright red apple, though, I think.

This drops officially on Friday, but will be on newstands in some cities tomorrow. News reports today all over the place describe many interesting tidbits that will appear in the RS article, beyond the (yawn) "I'm gay" profession, for those who are interested in Adam beyond his music.

On Kris (Popeater):
Lambert even goes on to share his feelings toward sharing a living space with 'Idol' champion Kris Allen. He says that when the show moved them in together, "I was like, 'Oh, s--t, they put me with the cute guy.' Distracting! He's the one guy that I found attractive in the whole group on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type – except that he has a wife. I mean, he's open-minded and liberal, but he's definitely 100 percent straight."

On coming out to his (very sweet) parents (Popeater):
Adam's father Eber caught his 13-year-old son looking at gay pornography on the family computer, and turned to his wife and said 'It's official.' Later, Lambert's mother asked if he had a girlfriend. He said no. She asked if he had a boyfriend. He said no. Then she asked if he wanted a boyfriend, to which Lambert replied "Yes, that would be nice." "Suddenly, it was like a wall dropped, and we started gabbing like crazy," Lambert says.

On pot, Ecstasy and cocaine (USA Today):
At 21, he was in a European tour of Hair for six months. That was when he dyed his hair black. In Germany, he started smoking pot and tried Ecstasy. But he does have limits. Among his dislikes: cocaine.

On funguses: (NY Post):
"I was looking for something and I wasn't sure what it was. [After experimenting with] certain funguses, I had a psychedelic experience where I looked up at the clouds and went, 'Oh!' I realized that we all have our own power, and that whatever I wanted to do, I had to make happen."

On the now-famous pictures of him in drag and kissing Brad Bell (TVGuide.com):
"I've only dressed in drag three or four times — and of course I took pictures, because I looked amazing — but I don't tuck and I don't wear breasts, that's not me," Lambert said. "Sucking my boy's face? Yes, that I will own."

For anyone who is uninitiated about, but interested in, the Kradam bromance, here's an excellent primer, complete with slow-motion gifs of the boys in their best Kradam moments. It's a beautiful thing.

The Bible says this:
Leviticus 20:13: "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."

Can't tell if we're being spammed or if this is our former blog bro. Look into the distinction between old covenant and new. Unless you also want to advocate for the stoning of adulterous women and all the other whacked out things that Leviticus commands.
