"I don’t think it should be a surprise for anyone to hear that I’m gay," Lambert says in the new issue of Rolling Stone, hitting newsstands this week.

Shocking right? So why did he wait so long to just say what everyone pretty much already knew?

"Right after the finale, I almost started talking about it to the reporters, but I thought, 'I'm going to wait for Rolling Stone, that will be cooler.'" he tells the mag. "I didn’t want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullshit. I need to be able to explain myself in context.

"I'm proud of my sexuality," Lambert continues. "I embrace it. It’s just another part of me."
