Here's an in-depth interview with Adam Lambert about his music, why he turned down a role in Hedwig, and what his plans are.
You’re considered one of the truly nice guys in show business. How do you stay so grounded?
The big thing is keeping the right people around you. I’ve met a lot of people and my old friends from way back when are still my friends. Perspective is everything. I’m not afraid to make new friends. I like people and I’m open.

Buy his music. It's excellent. You'll like it.
Mati Weiderpass Kicked Out of Fire Island Bar
Mati Weiderpass was also involved in the Ian Reisner/Ted Cruz dinner event fiasco that's been making so much news that I think we're all getting a little sick of it.
Here's what happened when Weiderpass went to a gay bar in Fire Island and the gay people in the bar found out a Republican sympathizer was there. Yes, it happened. I swear I'm not making this up.
Weiderpass (pictured here with the awful GOP presidential candidate) was kicked out of a Fire Island gay bar after his mere presence got on everyone’s nerves.
“One guy got up and asked him what the rationale was to have dinner with Cruz,” bar patron Evan Lobel tells Page Six. “They got kind of heated and before you knew it, there was a lot of people yelling.” Not the kind of thing that usually happens in a gay bar, safe to say.
That’s when owner P.J. McAteer approached the table. He told Weiderpass to leave or he would call the police.
“Upon their departure, the crowd cheered,” Lobel said.
You can read the rest here. I hate to comment on things like this because I'm not a fan of Ted Cruz either. Ted Cruz would be the last person I'd give money to. But you have to admit this was a bit of a seventh grade mean girl tactic to pull, especially for a room full of grown men. It wasn't their most dignified moment and I'd like to let anyone reading this who isn't gay know that we are not all like those gay bar people in Fire Island. Most of us know the meaning of decorum.
Nick Jonas Saves Pittsburgh Pride
Even though I don't always get Nick Jonas, I have to admit what he did recently really changed my impression of him a lot.
After Iggy Azalea backed out of Pittsburgh Pride, watch what happened:
But have no fear, Nick Jonas is here. He heard about the Iggy drama and contacted the festival, offering to step in last-minute and fill the slot. We’d say there are a few other slots we wouldn’t mind him filling, be we wouldn’t do that. Would we?
“When I heard about the difficult position Pittsburgh Pride was in just days before their event, I knew I had to find a way to help,” he said in a statement on Thursday.
“I’m excited to do what I can to support the LGBT community in Pittsburgh, and I look forward to seeing you this Saturday as we celebrate together.”
