American Idol Didn’t Let Adore Delano Come Out

During Delano’s guest appearance on the YouTube talk show, Sissy That Talk Show with host Joseph Shepherd, Delano made a surprising revelation. The host asked Delano a question if she had already come out as homosexual while competing on American Idol.

“I came out when I was 12, the creators told me not to come out, like a lot,” Delano said. “They wouldn’t let me sing Joan Jett songs because they said I couldn’t sing any more girl songs.”

Another American Idol alum, Adam Lambert also experienced problems that he had after kissing a man at the 2009 American Music Awards. Lambert was banned from the NBC network as a result, and was even threatened with a lawsuit for his actions.
