I’m late on these bits of news since I spent Tuesday focused on writing up my David Cook interview.
hmm… let’s see. gets a civil restraining order against his stalker on top of Ryan Seacrest last month’s criminal restraining order.
The order issued Tuesday requires Chidi Benjamin Uzomah Jr. to stay 100 yards away from the radio and television personality. A criminal court judge granted a similar order against Uzomah earlier this month.
And Adam Lambert’s handlers apparently tried to downplay his gayness in conversations with Out magazine. The editor in this letter (scroll down to read it) seems bitter about the situation despite the fact Adam comes off refreshingly candid in the actual interview.
Here’s a link to part one of the interview. It’s extremely long. Here’s a very brief excerpt:
Are you usually attracted to straight boys?
Kris seems like a real straight guy.
He is a real straight guy. He’s very straight. He’s just…cute.
He’s pretty. He’s a pretty boy. You know? And he’s nice. He’s a really nice guy. One of the things that I think is so refreshing and cool about him is that he’s from Arkansas — and this is me being small-minded — I just kinda figured that the acceptance of people like me in Arkansas is probably a lot lower than here. And he’s very open-minded to people’s lifestyles and he doesn’t judge. He’s a good guy.
On sexuality: “To some people, me being sexual is really offensive because I’m gay. They’re like, ‘He’s being really gay.’ And I’m like, actually, ‘No, I’m just being sexual.’ Male sexuality is frightening to America [but] female sexuality is all over the place.”
