Adam Lambert Feels 'Fortunate' to Live in Liberal Household


Adam Lambert


The runner-up of 'American Idol' eighth season is grateful for having understanding parents who accept his sexuality.

Gay singer Adam Lambert is grateful to his parents for accepting his sexuality and supporting him throughout his younger years, insisting he is "fortunate" to have grown up in such a liberal household. The former "American Idol" contestant confirmed his sexuality to the public in a tell-all interview with Rolling Stone magazine in 2009, shortly after he finished second in the reality TV show competition.

Lambert went on to shock fans with a sexually charged performance at the American Music Awards in November 2009, in which he simulated a sex act with a male dancer, prompting more than 1,500 viewers to file complaints to broadcaster ABC. But despite the controversy, the gay star is proud that he is able to be himself - and has credited his parents with giving him the confidence to flaunt his sexuality.

He tells music channel Fuse, "My dad is a Deadhead (fan of rock band Grateful Dead), my mom's a Jewish-American princess from Jersey. They never got hung up on stuff like that, and I'm fortunate, because there's a lot of people who come from households where it's not OK."
