On Thursday’s installment of “Watch What Happens Live,” Lambert told host Andy Cohen that although he and Smith have done “a lot of bonding” over the past year, there was no truth in any of the media speculation that the two are more than just friends.
“I love that rumor, actually. The minute I heard it, I texted him,” Lambert, 35, said, responding to a fan’s inquiry. After shrugging off the romantic suggestion, he praised Smith, noting, “He’s such a nice guy. He’s so funny.”
The two stars have, in fact, spent quality time together in the past. In March 2016, the guys were spotted together at the New York nightclub No. 8. DJ Dawson posted a photograph of himself posing with Lambert and Smith on Instagram.
Lambert elaborated further about his friendship with the “Stay With Me” singer in the “Watch What Happens Live” interview Thursday. “We did ride a rickshaw in London from one club to another, wasted, at like 3 in the morning,” he said. “And I ran into him in Mykonos this summer.”
Fortunately for us, Lambert documented both of those encounters with Smith for posterity on Instagram.
Though Smith, 24, has spent much of the past year out of the limelight, Lambert is gearing up to the road once more. In June, he’ll kick off a North American tour with Queen, playing 25 cities across the country.
Sizzle or not, Lambert and Smith no doubt have a lot to talk about as two of the pop world’s most out-and-proud performers. And there’s no reason the two can’t make some sweet music in the studio. C’mon, boys ― gift us with some ear candy!
