CELEBRITY DOPE: Man on Man Action

Three different stories about three different male celebrities talking about homosexual sex come out on the same day – and all mere days before the May 23 release of Lady Gaga’s new album Born This Way.

Coincidence, you say? Probably.

Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler – who is filling the Paula Abdul role on American Idol very nicely – talks about taking a walk on the wild in his new autobiography, Does The Noise In My Head Bother You? He writes, “Gay sex just doesn’t do it for me. I tried it one time when I was younger, but I just didn’t dig it.”

REM’s Michael Stipe also went on the record denying he ever had sex with another man. We’ll have to take his word for it because the man in question is Kurt Cobain and he’s dead. Stipe told the New York Post, “Kurt was a really sweet man, and we never had sex. All right? There’s your exclusive.”

And to complete our Trifecta of homosexuality-denying male celebrities today is noted rocker, hunting enthusiast and raving lunatic Ted Nugent, who held forth on the gay topic to CNN’s Piers Morgan: “I’m repulsed at the concept of man-on-man sex, I think it’s against nature. I think it’s strange as hell, but if that’s what you are, I love ya.”

As you can see, homophobia – in Greek, literally: “Fear of Humans” – takes many forms.
