(Newser) – Don't look to Adam Lambert to put to rest the guessing game about his sexual preferences. At least not yet. "Calm down," said the American Idol runner-up. "Keep speculating." Asked if he'll address the matter at some point, he responded, "Maybe," reports People. In the meantime, Lambert says, "it's a really, really cool thing to be able to show people that you can be yourself ... and never make apologies for it."

Adds the 27-year-old: "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. It feels great because I never had a role model like that."
