"It's weird to me because I don't think of myself in that way," Lambert told MTV News on the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood red carpet Wednesday. "So when I hear stuff like that, it's very flattering and I just have to say thanks, I guess." Lambert was being honored at the event as Glam God of the Year.

The American Idol runner-up, however, had no problem explaining why his pal and fellow Idol, Allen, who Us named Victor of the Year at the event, has everyone labeling him a hottie. "He's confident in his own skin as well," he said, before Allen met up with him on the carpet and the two shared some good-natured laughs.

"It's the hair, man," Allen said about what makes Lambert so sexy, after shrugging off Lambert's compliments. "I think it's the hair, that's what all the ladies like, the hair."

"I think the ladies like other things about Kris," Lambert teased. "The hair is good. But there's more to it than that, from what I've gathered."
