ADAM Lambert was worried his sexuality would be an issue while he was appearing on American Idol.
The star — who came out as gay after finishing runner-up in last year’s season of the hit TV talent show — feared he’d be treated differently.
“I was actually worried about [my sexuality] when I auditioned,” Lambert said during an interview on UK TV show Friday Night With Jonathan Ross.
“I thought ‘I’m not what they usually go for, I don’t know if it’s going to work out’ but it did, and thank God I auditioned.
“At first I remember Simon Cowell was saying to me during my audition, ‘Well you’re very theatrical’, and he always said that as a negative statement but I thought to myself that’s a good thing.
“Yeah, I’m theatrical and I’m proud of it, I think that there is a lot of room for that in pop music.”
Adam recently admitted he’s worried about ending up alone.
“I have a fear of being alone — not being alone by myself, but I want to fall in love, and grow old with somebody and I just sometimes get scared that it’s not going to happen,” he said last month.
