RadarOnline.com caught up with sixth-season American Idol runner-up Blake Lewis on the red carpet of Human Rights Campaign’s star-studded gala in Los Angeles this past weekend, where he talked about his oft-discussed sexuality and gave his take on this season’s Idol competition.
Lewis said he’s heard — and been asked about — the rumors he is gay, but doesn’t get too caught up in them.
“It’s kinda like, ‘Ask a different question,’ I’ve answered it a thousand times, but it doesn’t really matter,” he told us exclusively. “I’m straight, it’s not like I’m gonna go gay tomorrow.”
Lewis, who is blogging for USA Today about this season’s American Idol competition, said he thinks Michael Lynch and Andrew Garcia are the main guys to watch, while Didi Benami and Crystal Bowersox are the girls that have caught his ear.
He said he’d need to watch a few more shows to pick a winner, because the entrants have yet to show any real charisma, so far.
Lewis’ latest album, Heartbreak on Vinyl, is in stores now.
