4. CYNTHIA NIXON

2007: “In terms of sexual orientation I don’t really feel I’ve changed. I’d been with men all my life, and I’d never fallen in love with a woman. But when I did, it didn’t seem so strange. I’m just a woman in love with another woman.”

7. ADAM LAMBERT

Rolling Stone, 2009: ”Right after the finale [of "AI"], I almost started talking about it to the reporters, but I thought, ‘I’m going to wait for Rolling Stone, that will be cooler,’… I didn’t want the Clay Aiken thing and the celebrity-magazine bullshit. I need to be able to explain myself in context.”
