Kenny Chesney Comes Out! – Ooops, I Mean Chelly Wright. (BFD!)

So Country Music “Star” Chelly Wright is the mystery “superstar” that is now out two days head of her May 5 super secret unveiling, with an article up on People.com  “There had never, ever been a country music artist who had acknowledged his or her homosexuality,” Chely Wright tells People. (Ever hear of K.D. Lang?)

While I welcome a Lesbian Sister to the tribe.  But in Chelly’s case I do it half heartedly.  Chelly is hardly a “star” and hasn’t had a hit in 10 years and her coming out just happens to be coming out at a time when she’s promoting a book and a new CD.  Her coming out just reeks of a way to kick-start her career.

It’s truly depressing and a bit of a let down.

It should have been Kenny!
