    Adam Lambert is reportedly the new singer for Queen, replacing the American Idol winner's own late idol, Freddie Mercury. Lambert broke the news to the U.K.'s Daily Star.

    "The intention is to pay tribute to Freddie and the band by singing some fucking great songs," he said. "It's to keep the music alive for the fans and give it an energy that Freddie would've been proud of." Queen previously toured with former Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers taking Mercury's place.

    Speculation has been high since Lambert was joined by surviving Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor during his Idol finals appearance in 2009. In November, they performed together at the MTV EMAs in Belfast.

    Lambert said he had no intention of replacing Mercury, who died in 1991. "That's impossible," he said. "The way I'm choosing to view it is that it's a great honor and one I'm in no way going to shirk." Lambert's second solo album, Trespassing, is due in March.

    A representative for Hollywood Records tells Rolling Stone, "The Daily Star item only mentions that Adam may perform with Queen at Sonisphere. This is not confirmed. Nothing has been signed. However, if this were to happen, Queen would be returning to the setting of their final concert with Freddie Mercury, which took place in 1986."

    Hopefully it'll turn out to be "Queen with Adam Lambert" and not really Adam Lambert is joining queen. We saw them on tour with Paul Rodgers and, besides being a great concert, it was well received by the fans because it was a celebration of the music by Freddie Mercury and Queen. There was no thought of Rodgers joining the band as a replacement lead singer.

    Lambert's performance with the band on American Idol wasn't bad but I don't think fans want to see a new replacement singer named.


    UPDATE: Nope, Lambert has tweeted that his statement was taken out of context.
