Adam Is Open about His Sexuality, Says Kara DioGuardi

American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert may want America to keep speculating about his sexuality, but there's at least one person who has no doubt which way the 27-year-old singer swings: judge Kara DioGuardi.

"I don't think that Adam was ever in [the closet]," she says in a chat set to air on The View Friday.

Her comment came as part of a response to host Barbara Walters, who had asked if Lambert's controversial loss to Kris Allen was influenced by questions about whether Lambert is gay. Lambert has a penchant for eyeliner, nail polish, tight pants and flamboyant hair styles, and has been photographed kissing other men.

"I hope not," DioGuardi answered. "Because we should be judging on talent and viability in the music industry, and they both had that."

In an earlier interview with PEOPLE.com, Lambert said people who worried about whether he preferred men or women romantically needed to "calm down," and that the most important thing was that he was being true to himself.

"You should own who you are and what you're about, and never make apologies for it," he said.

Update to post:

Adam Lambert has no hard feelings after "American Idol" Season 2 runner-up Clay Aiken bashed him then apologized over a series of blog posts late last week.

"I don't know Clay," Adam told Access Hollywood on Thursday morning after performing on the 'Today Show. 'I'm glad he's getting headlines now though, because he wasn't before.'

I think Adam is great without a doubt and look forward to meeting him when I attend the American Idol Concert July 16th in Los Angeles at the Staple Center! I can't wait till the day when "GAY" is not an issue. If someone gets "queasy" about watching or listening to a "GAY" person then I would say they should just result to reading comic books. There is nothing more we can do to help that person. I just had to say that. Have a great weekend guys! Cheers! John (Pasadena, CA)
