Singer Adam Lambert has denied reports that he has joined the rock group Queen.

Lambert said comments he made to the UK's Daily Star had been taken out of context.

The 30-year-old American Idol alum told the tabloid that he would join Queen at the Sonisphere Festival in July.

“The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie [Mercury] and the band by singing some fucking great songs,” he said. “It's to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would have been proud of.”

On Friday, Lambert denied the reports.

“Oooh them clever reporters taking my quotes outta context,” he tweeted to his more than 1.3 million followers. “I haven't confirmed any guest appearances. I was talking about the EMA's [European Music Awards]”

“That being said, I'm truly flattered by your jump to such glorious conclusions mr. journalist!!:)”

The British rock band Queen currently includes Roger Taylor and Brian May. Taylor and May formed the band Smile, which Freddie Mercury altered to Queen when he joined. Mercury died in 1991 of complications due to AIDS.

A rep for Queen's label told Rolling Stone that nothing had been confirmed yet.

“The Daily Star item only mentioned that Adam may perform with Queen at Sonisphere. This is not confirmed. Nothing has been signed,” he said.

Lambert's second studio album, Trespassing, will be released on March 20.
