American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert is reportedly readying to come out on the cover of a major magazine.

Lambert might have scored second to Kris Allen on Fox's popular singing contest but the media's obsessive speculation about his sexuality, at, some would say, Lambert's own prodding, has thrust the twenty-seven-year-old into a dazzling spotlight.

The New York Post's venerable babble-zine Page Six is reporting the singer will end his coy act and come out gay on the cover of next week's Rolling Stone.

“He didn't want it to be an issue during the contest, but he's fine with his sexuality,” the paper quotes an anonymous insider.

Previous celebrities who have come out on the cover of a major magazine include comedienne Ellen DeGeneres and former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken who both announced being gay on the cover of People Magazine.
