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!
