Lambert: 'Own Who You Are'

adam lambert is comfortable being himself

Some of the public has wondered about Adam Lambert's sexuality since the "American Idol" runner-up rocked the stage wearing guyliner, nail polish and tight pants -- and Adam loves to keep peeps guessing about him.

"It's a really, really cool thing to be able to show people that you can be yourself, and you should be proud of yourself, and you should own who you are and what you're about, and never make apologies for it," Lambert tells People magazine.

The glam singer has kept the focus on his music when people have tried to question him about his personal life, proving that he could be himself without divulging anything about his sex life. His message for the people who still ask about his sexuality is simple -- "calm down and keep speculating."

Adam, 27, says his comfort in his own skin can serve as an example to fans. "It feels really amazing to be able to try and pass that on to kids and young adults who don't have a role model like that," he admitted. "It feels great because I never had a role model like that."

The San Diego native added, "Conforming is not cool. Embracing who you are and what makes you different is actually what's really cool... The kids that are different and out there and expressive and are bold with those choices, those are the people that grow up to be people we all want to hang out with."
