In his Rolling Stone
cover story, American Idol
runner-up Adam Lambert admitted he'd been crushing on his roommate in the Idol
mansion, Kris Allen.
"I was like, 'Oh, s---, they put me with the cute guy ... Distracting!" Lambert told the magazine
. "He's the one guy that I found attractive in the whole group on the show ... totally my type – except that he has a wife."
Allen's response? "I'm flattered," the Idol
winner tells PEOPLE exclusively, "And think it's hilarious."
The duo will have plenty of time to laugh over their missed chance at bromance this summer: Allen, Lambert and the other eight finalists from the show's top ten will hit the road on a 52-date tour starting July 5 in Portland, Ore. – Rennie Dyball
