Adam Lambert is the next musician to be honored with his own E! True Hollywood Story, set to promiere Nov. 21 during prime-time on E!
He participated in the rock doc, in addition to "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson, Lambert's mother, Leila; father, Eber; brother, Neil; close friends and music journalists Anne Powers and Vanessa Grigoriadis.
Excerpts from the E! release:
The singer divulges wild stories from his days performing in various musical theater gigs on cruise ships and throughout Europe. He explains, "I was exploring my sexuality a lot more aggressively. I was living a rock star lifestyle. I tried a lot of things - it was a big eye-opener for me." Also chronicled in the one-hour program are the emotional and controversial milestones in Lambert's personal life. From how he told his parents that he was gay, to the release of potentially damaging photos of him kissing an ex-boyfriend during the height of the American Idol craze, to his Rolling Stone magazine cover story and his highly criticized American Music Awards performance, Lambert reveals all. Says the singer, "My fans have been really supportive of my choice to be open and upfront about my sexuality and my lifestyle. I have come from the belief that hiding something from people and manipulating what they think of you is far more offensive and disrespectful than just being upfront and being who you are."
