"I'm flattered," says winner of "American Idol" season 8 Kris Allen when asked by People about what he thinks of runner-up Adam Lambert publicly admitting he has crush on him while they were in the Idol mansion. "And think it's hilarious," he adds.

Adam Lambert, who verified the on-going rumors that he is gay in his Rolling Stone cover story, made no attempt to hide the fact that he has crush on Kris Allen. He told the print media, "I was like, 'Oh, s***, 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."

Both Kris Allen and Adam Lambert have stressed in several interviews that though they were competing for the "American Idol" title, they remain good friends and support each other's career. Professionally, both of them have been signed to the same recording company 19 Recordings. On Wednesday, June 10, they were snapped hitting a recording studio in Los Angeles to make music together.

Adam is one of the most stunning looking human beings I have ever seen and talented - well how the hell did he not win - I couldn't believe it - is America so conservative that they couldn't get past his gayness? Or what?

Kris would be lucky if he did. I think every gay movie star and singer in the nation is now lined up for that job.Adam is way over the common crushes. he can pick and chooe. man or woman.whoever he want. one thing for sure is he can shop for quality now. cause he is gonna be a Star!

Adam no way said crush. That was a silly media twist.I think the 20/20 thing he did with his mom was outstanding. Now lets have kris on 20/20 to tell us how he and his wife do it and how often.Adam gave into everyones questions so he can get on with the music and acting.Stop making fools out of adam and kris.They need to just go sing.Let up on both these young men.

he said he thought he was cute. i guess in a small helpless kind of way he is. Adam never said crush. Please Adam Lambert could have any man or woman he wanted.Kris is married and i think this is bad talk for both men. leave them both alone. Kris has to deal with all the cheating issues and Adam with everyone wanting to claim him sexually. Ok facts:kris's got caught cheating his way to the top. Fact:Adam got screwed by american idol / kris and a few west La hunks. So whatz new? The world is ok!

actually, Adam said: "Hes the one guy I found attractive on the show: nice, nonchalant, pretty and totally my type except that he has a wife." And I agree with Kris it's hilarious, coz Kris is way out of that fugly b!tch's league.
