I thought he was gay, but I think lots of people are gay. Sometimes I’m right, sometimes I’m wrong, and sometimes I’ll never, ever know. If you think tons of people are gay, though, eventually somebody’s going to come out of the closet and you’ll look like a friggin’ genius.
When Savage Garden was popular, I annoyed my friends by declaring that Darren Hayes was gay. Why did I say that? Because he just gave me that “vibe.” Clay Aiken gave me that same vibe. There was just some basic little thing that was “off” there, some unspoken straight guy behavior that wasn’t there, or wasn’t quite right.
I’ve also alternately declared Brandon Flowers, Brendon Urie, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Phillippe, and Seth Green gay. If I’m right about any of them, I’ll look like I have amazing gaydar. There’s no real way to prove they aren’t gay, though, so I’ll never know if I’m wrong.
Since the tabloids pretty much say everybody is gay at some point, they’ve got the same racket going as me.
