    Now that they're without a full-time frontman, Queen has expressed their interest in recruiting Adam Lambert, the runner-up in this season's American Idol. According to the Associated Press, the 27 year old is mulling the idea over, but not signing anything just yet.

    "That's a tough question because, honestly, how do you say no to being in Queen?" Lambert said. "I mean, that's unbelievable. But at the same time, I do have my own thing to do right now, and that's my goal. So if I could, I would try to do both. That's the honest question. I would try to do both. I would love to perform with them anytime they wanted me to but I also have my record to do. So, we'll see."

    As for what Lambert's album will sound like, he claims it'll be "a rock-pop-electronic-dance thing…I think it's gonna take on a life of its own, as far as genre goes."

    "I want to communicate the liberation that is being comfortable in your own skin and that is being your own person," Lambert explained. "And the spirit of being different, and how strong that can make you feel."
