Gene Simmons Thinks Adam Lambert Should've Stayed in the Closet

Gene Simmons Thinks Adam Lambert Should've Stayed in the Closet-photo

Well, there goes any hope for an Adam Lambert/Kiss tour in the future.

Kiss frontman Gene Simmons tells AOL in no uncertain terms that he thinks American Idol runner-up Lambert made a big mistake by coming out of the closet in his recent Rolling Stone interview.

"He's enormously talented, best talent American Idol has had, but I think he killed his career because now the conversation is not about his talent but about his sexual preference," Simmons opines. "He's done. You're forcing people to deal with issues they may not be interested in. Life is unfair, and the masses don't all live in L.A. They live in Wisconsin and Nebraska, and you're on crack if you think the same rules apply there. My advice is still the same, shut the f*ck up, just sing and let people say whatever they want."

Hmm. Pretty strong words, for a guy who wears more makeup than Lambert does.

Have your say in the comments section: Do you agree that coming out of the closet will hurt Adam Lambert's career?

    Gene Simmons is not very likely to be the dumbest guy in the room. Adanm should listen. Also, this may just be PR anyway as the REST of the interview that you FAIL to report had Simmons issuing an open invitation to Lambert to join Kiss on tour. moron.

    adam lambert is young, talented, and applied to people who like rock, pop, techno, and so many other things. not just classic rock, like kiss. and he is beautiful with or without makeup. kiss is, well, out of style. and gene is kind of revolting. gene, a piece of advice: old men who bury their faces in makeup are creepy. adam lambert.... keep it up. every woman in america is in love with you!

    Gene's not being a bigot, he's just being honest. Adam took out all the controversy from his persona in that interview. I think he screwed himself by coming out.

    I think Gene is right, Adam had the females and males in his pocket they both loved him and his singing style, he should have not said anything about his preferances and let them think what they want , It was not that important to tell the world that he is gay as long as he is happy with what he is and his life that all that mattered , now when people see him perform the first thing they are thinking is he so handsome and gay.

    Gene Simmons is the provincial one, not people in Nebraska. He ignorantly stereotypes all Midwesterners as homophobic and biggoted. Really? Seems to me they just passed gay marriage in Iowa, but banned it in L.A.! And by the way, it's pretty rich to hear Simmons saying that Adam's fans should be focused on his music and not distracted by his sex life. Isn't Gene Simmons' entire persona based on his sexual conquests and how many women he's had? Gee, Mr. Simmons, I think you should have kept your heterosexuality in the closet so it wouldn't have distracted from your tal... oh, wait, maybe that's the difference.

    I think Gene needs to SHUT UP! Adam is a great singer and will do just fine. Whether he is gay or not just doesn't matter!

    I totaly agree with Gene: If not %100 then at least %70 of the Adam's fans lost interest in Adam due to his "coming out of the closet". LOL!!! Are you freakin crazy!! 99% of his fans could care less if he is gay and still think he is the hottest guy in around. He is so damn talented and gorgeous and gay is the new sexy!! Adam Rocks!!!

  • JMac
    JMac

    Really? Adam should be so lucky he is spoken by the great Gene Simmons. LOL!! Look who Gene keeps talking about - Adam Lambert!! Gene even said Adam could join them on the Kiss tour - so wake up and smell the roses - Adam Lambert is the next BIG DEAL!! The man is MEGA Talented and Gene and Queen, and Red One all see it. Now go take your nappy grumpy one.

    Gene Simmonds has a solid point. Yes and Gene has exploited sex for years. Adam is just goreous and talented and smokin' hot. Gene might be jealous but Adam is a star. I love to watch and listen to his spectacular range and amazing voice. HOT, Mega talented and a really sweet dude. Adam we love you!! Gene go home and stop talking please! Adam Rocks!!

  • JMac

    It just doesn't matter when you are as talented and gorgeous as Adam. He is so charismatic that you can't help respond to his sexiness. He is a great artist and he will be a Mega Star and being gay won't stop us from loving to watch him perform, I would definately pay money to be at his concerts and I can't wait for his CD this fall!! Adam Rocks!! And he is a really nice guy too, which is a big bonus.

    "Don’t complain about the snow on your neighbor’s roof when your own doorstep is unclean." Look who's talking (Simmons). I don't wanna say that Simmons is totally wrong, but he should not generalize things because it is very probable that the opposite of what he's thinking of is happening. For example, I for one love the more Adam when he "came out" because it shows his honesty of what and who he really is. In the first place, Adam did not hide his sexuality. Simmons was like saying that when he started being weird in the way he acted and dressed up on stage when performing, not to mention his yucky snake-like tongue, he also started ending his career! It's just so sad to note that people like Simmons are the ones putting down the image of their fellow artists. They should have been the ones who understand and let other shallow-minded and bland people understand the uniqueness of great talents like them. Too bad for him! Anyway, Adam will be iconic, and he will rise more to stardom.

    Mr. Simmons' statement reeks of pure jealousy and homophobia. Fortunately most of the country has moved on, but there are still obsessed people like Mr. Simmons who live in the past. I think Mr. Simmons has a crush on Adam, and it scares him, eh?

    Adam Lambert should'n have stayed in the closet, he was never in it! Why should he have to hide his sexuality? I want his music and I don't care if he is gay - that's his personal life. And he's hot as hell! It's good he has cleared this question, now people can focus on the import things - his music. Looking forward to his CD!

    Unfortunately, Jim, part of the problem IS that "KISS has been around since pretty much the dawn of time..." (as you wrote). Gene Simmons has had his day, fittingly during the time when male chauvinists still had some fans. Relevance? Well, that's a discussion for another time ... What we're talking about here is one who oozes pomposity and verbosity vs. one who is characterized by honesty and class.

    Gene please STFU - the only one talking about his sexuality these days is you. He had said it like once or twice after all the media who-har about it and has not really mentioned it since. Sounds like Gene is the only one that's upset he's gay. I totally agree with SCat.....took the words right out of my mouth....enough Gene...and if any reporters ask you about it....try saying this.....NO COMMENT.

    Tell you what, Gene. When Adam's tour rolls around he can just give Wisconsin and Nebraska the miss since they're as gayphobic as you seem to think. There's plenty enough folks left the world over who love Adam for his amazing voice and performances. It was the media that kept the gay issue on the hot burner, not Adam. It out, he's out - Adam's already moved on. Adam has a huge music career ahead of him - yours is petering out.

    Gene Simmonds doesn't know what he is talking about. The best move Adam made is being honest and open We care about his music, not who he sleeps with! Besides he hardly is the only one. Think about it and they are more successful than Simmonds ever was or will be. .

    Any "men" who can't handle the fact that Adam is gay, aren't real men anyway. Macho ***holes are out guys. Men who are confident in themselves will have no problem with Adam being gay. If you want to impress the ladies, go to an Adam Lambert concert. Adam's "coming out" was just a formality anyway. It would have been assumed he was gay anyway. So why does it matter either way?

    Is this jackass still commented on Mr. Lambert or is this an old interview? This Gene Simmons sounds like a complete fool really. It is none of this guys business what Lambert says or does not say regarding his sexuality. For God Sakes Gene Simmons sit down please. BTW Gene Simmons Mormons loved Lambert so what the hell are you talking about? Unreal. Please go buy a new rug for your head and keep your makeup on, Adam Lambert you will never, ever be, and NOBODY in America cares what your opinion is of Lambert, NOBODY.

    Gene needs to stop riding Adams coattails AND it wasn't Adams fault! The media kept asking him and everyone wouldn't leave him alone about it! So he had to set the record straight! Being gay WILL NOT HURT his career! He was many fans who will always love and support him

    How many more times do we have to see this same Gene Simmons comment putting negative vibes about Adam on the ethers? I've seen this same exact subject multiple times every single day since Gene said it. Adam hasn't been harping on the gay issue. He spoke up only when it became obvious that people weren't going to leave it alone until he said something. It's Gene, the media, bloggers, and websites like this who keep bringing it back up. Those Gene comments were made several weeks ago, so enough already! I can't believe that every single day I see this same exact subject on countless sites. It seems that every person who blogs about Adam and every website just keeps rehashing this same subject. I personally don't want to see another word about it. Because if Adam's career gets screwed like Gene claims, it won't be Adam's fault. It will be the fault of all the bloggers and websites who won't stop talking about what Gene said. Stop keeping those negative comments at the forefront! If that's all everyone hears, yes, it just might ruin Adam's career. So just stop already! I personally love, love, love Adam Lambert. I'm straight, and I don't give a fluke about his sexual orientation. I'm here for him, and for his music. Go Adam!

    Gene, get back in your trash can with all the other green grouches! It is a new day and we do not care if Adam is gay. Everyone out there, including you, is clamoring to get a piece of him, because it is clear where he is going from here. He is fresh and new and one other thing you wouldn't know anything about, a good and kind person. You may be able to cover up all of your other signs of aging, with wrinkle cream and Rogaine, but this attitude is just OLD!

    Adam Lambert is always be the headlines. Gene is riding Adam's coattail so he has to repeat what he said before to make the headlines again. OLD NEWS - NOW GENE REALLY NEEDS TO SHUT UP! JUST SHUT UP YOU SORDID CHAUVINIST OLD MAN!! Try to make headlines by your own without riding Adam's popularity.. geeezz Really? Gene Simmons riding this clowns coattails? Gimme a f-ing break. Kiss has been around since pretty much the dawn of time and no one will remember this adam guy in two years. I can't believe there is even a discussion as to who is more relevant. Adam should be so lucky he is spoken by the great Gene Simmons.

    Gene simmons ....what's your problem with gays? You are probably a closet gay yourself and too scared someone will find out so therefore find it necessary to make formidable statements about Adam being gay. Yes! you probably also fancy him!! I'm sure there were millions of people who 'hated' KISS because of your make-up and costumes ( probably thought you were all gay). Just to enlighten you Mr. Simmons a gay person has no say that he is born gay just as a person has no say that he is born hetro. It's just as normal to be gay as it is to be hetro. As for Adam Lambert - he is a musical genius, an amazing entertainer and the most gorgeous looking man I have ever seen - a total *SUPER STAR*.

    To Lynne: To say "no one under the age of 50" cares if Adam is gay ... is leaving out plenty of his fans. Where Adam is concerned, there are not neat, little boxes to put fans in ~ I just turned 62, and I have the same liberal values I have always had, growing up on both coasts and having been through the "sexual revolution." My generation made liberalism and inclusion "fashionable," so please don't put us in the "probably agree with Gene Simmons" column. I've had plenty of debates with 20- and 30-year-olds, who refuse to accept gays. It's not an age issue; it's a state of mind issue. Anyway, have you seen how many women in their 60s and even 70s have posted adoring posts about Adam? His countless attributes include his appeal to an incredible spectrum of people. One would think that someone like Gene, whose band broke down certain barriers in their day, would be progressive, but wow! Has he ever shown his "old fogey" side with these comments! No, I think we're seeing that fans of Adam Lambert are ushering in a fresh, new, revolutionary standard whose time has come ~ and one that Gene Simmons can't even fathom. You go girl! Well said!!!

    Please Gene! Get over it! Adam Lambert is the future and you're the past! Adam had to "get out of the closet" although he was never in, because people didn't talk about anything else then him being gay or not. Now that we know for sure, we can focus on the important things - the great artist and singer Adam Lambert! Looking also forward to his CD!

On the other way I love Adam Lambert - and I also don't care about his sexuality. Adam Lambert has the whole package - great looks, incredible voice. Looking so forward to his CD!

    oh gene you very much lost all my respect; as much as I loved kiss as much as I hate you for saying that right now. First off, you should be the one shutting the f*ck up. Second off, if adam did anything it was only being honest and up until now I haven't seen anything but good reactions to his honesty, whether the fans are in LA or wisconsin. I'm a fan from the Middle east, yes far away where homosexuality is a crime, and I'm telling you one thing, Adam's one amazing guy for being honest, I'd love if most of the homosexuals around the world were honest enough to tell people who they are and stand up for themselves. I was tired of hearing OTHER speak for adam, this time I heard him talk, and I respect him for that, it was HIS job to speak no one else's and your opinion or anyone else's in the world isn't going to change that. You're suppose to be a rock legend if I were you I'd give support for a new-comer who's probably going to be the next big thing in a few years just like you were one time. I don't know if you know this, but back when you started you had people saying sh*t about you guys as well, I am pretty sure you didn't want to turn into these people but guess what pal, you did, you became one of them, which makes me lose every single ounce of respect for you.

    Why is Mr. Simmons talking about this again? Doesn't he get it. We're not back in the 1970's Gene, and Adam's popularity is not with the red states. It is world wide. His musical talent and personna is loved and respected and recognized all over the world. So lose your homophobic attitude 'cause you're the only one dwelling on Adam's sexuality. My husband and I are Adam fans, and we knew from day one that he was gay. It does not matter one bit. It's about the talent and his abilities as a performer. And, unlike you, he is beautiful to look at!! So get a new subject.

    Well Gene, it's time to swallow that ugly tongue of yours. Adam is the best artist to come along in decades and nothing will stop him. Gene, you are out touch with the new generation, we are don't give a sh.... if someone is gay , bi, etc. like in your prejudice day, sure there are still some scared homophobes out there , but Adam has legions of evolved intelligent fans all over the world and you should stop using him to get a little press for yourself Hey, do you know Clay.

  • Beverly

    There are so many friends, artists and producers who like and admire Adam so why is it that Gene Simmons' comments about Adam's sex life are the main blog comments we are seeing? I wonder who this is benefitting. Why are Gene's ridiculous comments being quoted over and over on the blogs? Adam has always been himself -- "out" in the open. Apparently he has never hidden who he is. So WHAT is Gene REALLY talking about? I am beginning to wonder why Gene talks about sex so much -- his and Adams'. Why doesn't he direct HIS conversation to comments about music and Adam's unique talents? Why does he object to the fact that Adam has ALWAYS been open and honest and does not hide who he is behind masks, lies and criticisms of others?

    Adam is first an entertainer and I've not seen anyone in a long time so committed to doing just that. He, like Elvis and Michael totally transform themselves when they're singing. This is they're passion. We can sit back and enjoy. Adam has a vocal range that is unbelievable and I for one can appreciate all of it. As for the gayness--we're all wired differently. I am in my mid fifties and have been married for 37 years and find Adam hottt! Go figure. If Adam keeps a cool head he will go very far. Advice from a mom who has 2 sons in their 20s--drugs will ruin your life! GO ADAM--I'm looking forward to your music

    OMFG, when is this guy going to stop obsessing about Adam Lambert? First, I heard that he says his career is ruined and then he says he's hugely talented, good looking and should join Kiss. If he's got such a horrible reputation, then why would you want him in your band? I think Gene Simmons might have a thing for Adam or he wouldn't be constantly talking about the guy. Nobody else is talking about his sexuality anymore, it's all about his awesome talent. Listen, I get why you have a crush on him, he's so hot, but you need to get a grip!

    Gene, you had your time and so did your music but it really is all over for you. Your not an artist that can withstand time like other great bands as U2, Coldplay etc. Adam was honest to come out because of alot of curiosity and thats the end of it. I for one don't care if his Arthur or Martha but what he brings on stage is exhilarating a true showman and I can tell you that it doesnt matter if some states in the US don't take him on because the rest of the world will. Has everyone forgotten about Boy George in the 80's a huge UK star who was gay and did'nt hide it. Back then he was in his prime and sold heaps of records. (Im not comparing Boy George to Adam) Adam is in a league of his own - a Wold Superstar! Watch Out

    Adam Lambert is a personable charmer, who flirts with everyone, gals and guys, and looks you in the eye and dares you not to flirt back. ! On stage, he is completely in control of the audience; he is mesmerizing, intoxicating brillant, seductive and hypnotic. His vocal range is unmatched, covering 3 octaves like the late Freddie Mercury, and he can hold any register in between without his voice cracking which is very hard for a singer to do. Besides being able to sing any genre- gay or not-he is sexy smokin hot. Sure, a few redneck bigots might be scared of him, but there are millions and millions of us who are loyal fans. As Adam says, "next'.

  • Lexi

    I suspected he was gay from the moment I laid eyes on him but that doesn't deminish the fact that he has talent beyond compare! He's still the HOTTEST thing walking. I have to agree, however, that he should have waited until his careeer is established before he bolted out of the closet. Look what happened to Clay. Everybody suspected he was a little light in the loafers but once he came out, it killed him. I don't think it works to compare Adam with Clay. Although Clay has a beautiful voice, he is not the exciting performer that Adam is. Also Clay has zero sex appeal while Adam's sex appeal is off the charts!

  • AussieFan

    The media did not "out" Adam, was always "out". He just cleared it up for those who were too stupid to figure it out for themselves... dopey American Paps who were in his face constantly. Gene should go find a new subject, this one is old, tired, boring and ugly, like him.

    Adam Lambert. knows who he is, is courageously honest, extremely creative and talented and has the most outstanding vocal range in decades. His sexuality was all over the internet, the news articles,and the blogs during Idol- his coming out was no surprise unless you live in a cave in the boondocks. He ansered the question and moved on. The only reason to read this article is it containts the name of our new rock star Adam Lambert./ So shut TF up Gene Simmons and stop riding Adam's coattail. Only the idiots and rednecks will care what the sexuality is of that great performing artist on stage or who is singing that awesome song on the radio - and they lose. Adam Lambert was destined by his God Given Gifts to be and international singing star and he is on his way.

    Is this the same Gene Simmons who has for years talked openly about his many sexual conquests with women, even though he lives with Shannon Tweed, the mother of his children? What a hypocrite! Apparently Gene sees no problem with babbling about about his own sexual "preferences."

  • Why cant you leave him alone?
    Why cant you leave him alone?

    You know what Gene? Your so-called career is over so why don't you go back to your mansion and let new stars shine. Your old news, and if your really a musician you would stop trying to cut down adam just when hes about to get his carrer started. You seriously have to put the costume away because your time is over. Why not help Adam? Why bring him down and make yourself look like a half-wit? And the whole "How was it for adam to preform with us..." That is the most selfish, self-centered, hypocrytical thing I have ever heard in my life. You are just too predujice.Maybe you should just shut up and focus on your failing carrer.

    Maybe you should put that old costume back in the closet you jealous fool! You know, I kinda like kiss, and I respect you opinion, but its a terrible thing to say! He has worked so hard to get to the top and now you pansy followers may take your uneducated opinion. I am deeply sorry if my harsh words offended anyone, but I am ANGRY!

    I suspected he was gay from the moment I laid eyes on him but that doesn't deminish the fact that he has talent beyond compare! He's still the HOTTEST thing walking. I have to agree, however, that he should have waited until his careeer is established before he bolted out of the closet. Look what happened to Clay. Everybody suspected he was a little light in the loafers but once he came out, it killed him.

    Gay or straight Adlam Lambert is HOT HOT HOT HOT.....even now after American Idol, I can't get enough of looking at this pure, solid talent that can make a woman dream and see him as a man, vs gay. He is the next ICON. Gene is over. He has nothing to offer, but his attempt to bring back his career will not work by piggy backing on Adam. YOU GO ADAM!!!!!!

    I agree with Gene Simmons. This country is not ready for that and the men in this country are not ready to sing songs written by an admittedly gay man. Adam is very talented and I wish he would not have let the media out him out. Some of the greatest talent such as Elton John and others were gay but they waited until late in their careers before coming out. My words for Adam is honesty is usually the best policy however in his case it may be a double edged sword which will sever his budding career. My advice to Adam would be sing and leave your personal life in the closet. Adam is probably the most talented individual to ever perform in the American Idol show don't let people destroy this opportunity for you. My advice to Gene Simmons would be to get a life because he can not ride on Adam's coat tail.

    Gene, Please. Before Adam "confessed" that's all people would talk about. If you would wipe some of that makeup out your eyes, you would see that more than his sexuality is being discussed and the media has piped down quite a bit about it other than the few who choose to keep rehashing it like yesterday's leftovers (YOU INCLUDED).

    Gene, why don't u go to the nearest pharmacy and get some 'ass cream' for those burns! Ridin' Adam's coat tail is the only way for u to stay in the news... pretty sad.

    Oh Gene not again, weren't you talking about this a month ago, seems like the only way you can get some headlines is to talk about the fabulous Adam. I think you jealous and pissed off because ET asked you what is was like to perform with Adam and you got your awful knickers in a knot and said to the interviewer, "you mean how Adam liked perfoming with us". Can it Gene, you have your reality show shoved in everyones face, so STFU hypocrite. You are old and done, make room for the new and try to do it with some class and style, maybe Adam could give you some lessons on how to behave with class and style.

    Adam Lambert is always be the headlines. Gene is riding Adam's coattail so he has to repeat what he said before to make the headlines again. OLD NEWS - NOW GENE REALLY NEEDS TO SHUT UP! JUST SHUT UP YOU SORDID CHAUVINIST OLD MAN!! Try to make headlines by your own without riding Adam's popularity.. geeezz

    Gene please STFU - the only one talking about his sexuality these days is you. He had said it like once or twice after all the media who-har about it and has not really mentioned it since. Sounds like Gene is the only one that's upset he's gay.
