Question green card lottery application and j-1 visa

i applied last year for green card lottery and was not selected
and this year i applied and waiting for the result on may 2013
i heard from someone who went to j-1 visa interview that the interviewer asked him why did u apply for green card while u now apply for non-immigrant j-1 visa, it was embarrassing for him but he skipped it with diplomacy
i am afraid tht this will affect my chances into j-1 visa specially i am waiting my green card lottery result by first of may
i even dont know how to go for the interview for j-visa before i know if i am selected for green card in lottery or should wait till i know the result to be sure and confident

You can tell the officer "My dream is to live and work in USA that's why I applied for lottery, if I don't get it then my plan is to go on a J1 Visa, do my residency, then go for J1 waiver and get the H1B to get my Green Card".

Plain simple truth will make the officer happy and will trust you.
