Rocker Adam Lambert says he would like
to join the ranks of celebrity gay dads Ricky Martin, Neil Patrick
Harris and Clay Aiken.
The American Idol season 8
runner-up discussed the possibility while on tour in Australia.
In answering a fan's question about
fatherhood, the 28-year-old rock star said he was open to the idea.
“I think there will come a time when
that will be a possibility,” he said. “At his point I think it's
kinda far off because I think I'm just at the beginning of a career
and I want to concentrate on that. If I was to raise a young person,
I would want to give them all of me and so I would want to make sure
I was in a place where the career could definitely be put on the back
burner for five to ten years.”
On Monday, Lambert reached out to
troubled gay teens considering suicide, recording
a 90-second, black-and-white clip for the It Gets Better campaign.
“It gets better,” Lambert tells the teens, then adds, “but
it's up to you.”
