Adam Lambert has cleared up reports he is the new frontman of Queen, insisting remarks he made about joining the We Will Rock You stars were "taken out of context".
In a recent interview, the pop star appeared to confirm he was heading on the road with original group members Brian May and Roger Taylor for a tour later this year (12).
However, Lambert claims he was actually referring to a previous performance he and the rock icons gave at the MTV European Music Awards in November (11).
In a post on Twitter.com, he writes, "Oooh them clever reporters takin (sic) my quotes outta (out of) context... I haven't confirmed any guest appearances. I was talking about the EMAs.
"That being said, I'm truly flattered by your jump to such glorious conclusions Mr Journalist!!"
A spokesperson for Queen's label, Hollywood Records, admits there have been discussions about Lambert teaming up with the band, but no official deal has been inked.
The representative tells Rolling Stone, "Adam may perform with Queen at (European music festival) Sonisphere. This is not confirmed. Nothing has been signed."
