Adam Lambert

Yep, he's ... about to clear the air.

American Idol finalist Adam Lambert will let the "pink elephant" trumpet by coming out to Rolling Stone, the New York Post's Page Six reports.

Explaining Lambert's decision to come out now versus what seems like a small eternity ago, a well-placed source at the bible of rock 'n' roll tells Page Six, "He didn't want it to be an issue during [Idol], but he's fine with his sexuality."

Though Lambert had been riding the fence with his public persona, Kara Dioguardi says that behind the scenes at Idol, he was more candid.

"I don't think that Adam was ever in [the closet]," the Idol judge shares on Friday's The View. "I think he was always openly out. I mean, from what I've seen... I never thought he wasn't."

Earlier this week, Lambert told TVGuide.com that the issue of his sexuality has been a nagging elephant in the room during interviews, quipping, "That elephant, man.... It's pink, isn't it?"

Beyond that, Lambert has invited the curious to "Keep speculating," saying that "maybe" he would soon set the record straight — and in a magazine such as Rolling Stone.

A spokesperson for Rolling Stone told Page Six, "We don't comment on future covers," while Lambert's rep did not respond to the gossip column's request for comment.
