"I think it's weird that I'm having this effect on women. It's flattering, I've never had underwear thrown at me before. Clearly, there's something significant about it, because there aren't a lot of openly gay men in the entertainment industry."
It's a testament to the sheer mainstream power of American Idol that a gay man with an unabashed affection for eyeliner and nail polish has emerged from this year's competition as a new American sex symbol. "I think it's beautiful," Lambert says. "That's the way it should be. It shouldn't matter what a person's sexual preference is----it doesn't change their appeal."
