Kelly Clarkson Continues To Be Awesome; Addresses Gay Rumors


With all the negative press about musicians that have a gay following like Azealia Banks and Fantasia with their anti-gay remarks, here’s a story of a musician that has gotten it right. PopRock artist Kelly Clarkson sat down recently to once again address gay rumors that have surronded her career. Newly engaged Clarkson feels this is gossip is not only wrong but also insulting, not to her but to her gay fans:

“People think, ‘Oh, she’s been single for too long. That’s kind of an insult to the gay community. Being single doesn’t mean you’re gay. But I’m never insulted by it, obviously. I mean, I get hit on by the hottest girls ever. Oh, my god, if I were a lesbian, I would be so in luck. But it’s just not my thing.”

Earlier last year Clarkson said basically the same thing and feels the whole thing is trivial at best:

“I just think it is very ignorant to assume that you know everything about someone. People keep saying that I’m gay and … yeah, I’m not. I’m pretty sure I’ve never made out with a girl. Sometimes, I wish I were because at this point, I would probably get hit on by a lot of girls! It’s just not helping me because I am straight. No boy wants to hit on me because I make mean songs about them and they think I’m gay.”

You may remember last year that Clarkson spoke out in support of President Obama because of his support of the LGBT community during the 2012 election season:

“I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again… I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married”

Keep up the great work Kelly

Music Siren Kylie Minogue Addresses Her Gay Fans

With a career spanning over two decades, sexy siren Kylie Minogue continues forward with new, innovative music that is loved world wide. And Minogue reflects upon her music journey in an interview where she expresses how very appreciative of her fans, and thinks about how she wouldn’t have gotten to where she is now in her career without them. Minogue does often wonder how she gained such a huge gay fanbase:

That’s really hard for me to think of a specific story, but in general, I do hear that kind of thing. The biggest question is: How did I end up in this position? My gay audience just decided. It was like, “You’re ours. We’re adopting you.” And I thought it was brilliant. But it wasn’t like I was marketed to the pink pound or anything like that – that didn’t even really exist back then, actually.

So yeah, I do hear lots of stories about people feeling some kind of support and loving what I do. I don’t have the answer and I’m asked all the time, “Why do you have such a gay following?” “Why are you a gay icon?” I almost don’t want to know the answer, because it was so organic the way it happened.

I try to keep everyone in mind, because I don’t want to go too far and I don’t want to go “not” far enough. It’s just a case of balance. Like, I wouldn’t go on a tour that’s got a routine like we had for “Slow” on the Showgirl tour. You wouldn’t want that for two hours. I don’t even think my gay audience would want that for two hours.

Rock Goddess Pink Opens Up About Her Sexuality

Recently the immensely talented music artist Pink talks about why she has always been accepting of differing sexuality. Pink makes note that this is a result of her experiences growing up and when she was just starting out in the music business:

The kind of world I live in and lived in was this sort of very open one. I was like a club kid. I was a little candy raver, and I am the kind of person that sucks the marrow out of the bones of life. Those days were really crazy and lots of all-nighters. And with a bunch of other kids that were trying to find themselves and have a good time doing it and get out from under their parents — and there was a lot of ecstasy. And as far as I’m concerned, when you’re on ecstasy there’s no such thing as definable sexuality. There is just love.

I loved my little girlfriends and we kissed and we had a great time and we held hands. When I first moved to Los Angeles, I was an honorary lesbian of Los Angeles. I wasn’t gay, but all my girlfriends were. So no, it wasn’t a big deal for me, but when [a tabloid] comes out and says, I just said I was bisexual, it’s like what? That wasn’t my truth, and I like truth. I like absolute truth.” 

Pink clarifies that the incident in the tabloid was not because she was afraid of labels, but rather that she has always been open about her sexuality and was upset that the story was fabricated. She goes on to say that in the end, she doesn’t place judgement and welcomes open-mindedness to all including:

“Different thought processes and sexualities…as long as everybody in the group is open-minded and doesn’t judge anybody else, it’s a lovely place to be—it’s how the whole world should be.”

She is so down to Earth and humble about where she comes from. A true class act.

Rock Goddess Pink Talks Marriage Equality

In a recent interview, Uber talented rock musician Pink vocally supported marriage equality stating that same sex marriage is no different than any other marriage (BRILLIANT):

I think that the best day will be when we no longer talk about being gay or straight — it’s not a ‘gay wedding,’ it’s just a ‘wedding,”It’s not a ‘black man’ or ‘white woman,’ it’s just ‘a man’ and ‘a woman,’ or ‘a human’ and ‘a human.’ I’d just like to get to that.

Pink also elaborated on how she understands and emphasizes with the LGBT community resulting from her own past struggles:

I identify with people that struggle, and I respect people that have to fight for their right to be respected. I felt bullied, judged and labeled and I think it’s asinine for one person to think they are better than another person…some of the greatest people I’ve met in my life happen to be gay people and I find that very hard to ignore.”

After endorsing President Obama for a second term, she states is better than the alternative:

I don’t think it’s time to start over with a brand new person with the same set of problems. And I don’t think Mitt Romney is the right person.”

Such a talented musician. Also, if you haven’t checked out her new album, i highly recommend it. It’s herr best work lyrically and vocally to date.


Tattooed Rocker Adam Levine Voices Continued Support For Gay Rights

Hot and tattooed Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice judge Adam Levine goes into detail as to why he supports equal rights for the LGBTQ. Adam discussed why he recently made a statement in an MTV video blog supporting marriage equality explaining It’s just so silly and it doesn’t make any sense to me that you wouldn’t be able to marry whomever you want to marry. It’s not our business –It seems we’re a little behind on that, and we just need to make it legal and stop caring so much. It doesn’t matter. And it shouldn’t matter.

Adam relays a message to others that don’t support equal rights and believes “anyone who doesn’t agree with it is essentially putting themselves above other people. That’s what they’re doing. And that’s not OK with me.”

Adam elaborates his stance on his live and let live philosophy stating “people have their personal preferences as to what they want to do with their own lives, and they have every right to do that – just like a gay couple has every right to do that. It’s just not anyone’s business except the people involved. That’s all I would say: “What makes you better than these people?”

Levine discussed that his brother who is gay is not the only reason why he supports equal rights and says “I don’t think that having a gay brother has affected the way I feel about it, because I would feel the same way regardless. I happen to have a gay brother, but that doesn’t mean I’m more of an advocate for equal human rights. That shouldn’t change anything about the way that I feel.” (PERFECT ANSWER)

When questioned further on his brother being gay affecting his support for gay rights, Adam feels “that contributes on some level to the way that I feel. But I don’t know – I don’t think I would feel any differently if he happened to be straight. The relationships that I have with people – whether it’s my brother or a friend, gay or straight – that shouldn’t really ever come into play. Someone’s sexual preference is their sexual preference.”

Of course this isn’t the first time Levine has voiced a supportive, strong stance in equal rights. Earlier this year Adam along with his band members of Maroon 5 participated in a boycott of a restaurant El Coyote in Los Angeles for supporting Proposition 8. Adam has also has long supported with the It Gets Better Project.
