First, we had Adam Lambert declaring he was gay. Now Season 6 Idol, Sanjaya Malakar declares…he’s NOT gay.
The media loves their gay Idols! Or their Idols who aren’t gay.
“Like, yeah, a lot of people want me to be their gay best friend, and I make a really good gay best friend. But I don’t like guys, so it confuses people, ” Sanjaya said on Tuesday’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
Sanjaya’s sexuality came up after jungle-mate Janice Dickinson asked him to put guy-liner on, and he obliged.
“I just feel like she wants you to be gay or something, ” Holly Montag told Sanjaya quietly, while they were alone. Co-host Myleene Klass says she sees a budding romance between the two.
“I do hair, and I’ll sit in the corner and knit. So it confuses people, ” Sanjaya said to the confessional camera. “A lot of my friends refer to me as their ‘straight gay best friend’ because we’ll go do things that stereotypically you would do with a gay guy.”
Holly, however, still could not wrap her head around the concept of a “straight gay best friend.”
“If you’re not gay then you shouldn’t call yourself gay, ” she said.
Scintillating, isn’t it?
