John Rich Explains His Chely Wright Gay Comment!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayMusic MinuteSad SadLGBT


In the wake of country singer Chely Wright's announcement that she is a lesbian, she's opened up about her personal struggle - most notably about the meltdown she endured after a comment fellow country singer John Wright made!

As we reported, Chely claims:

“[John] said, ‘You’re not gay are you?!’ I said, ‘No, John, I’m not.’ He said, ‘Good, thank God.’ And that began a spiral for me. I had a meltdown shortly after that.”

John himself has now come forward to publicly aplogize, and claims Chely misunderstood what he meant!

He says:

“I would never pass judgment on any friend of mine. I feel awful that, at this time in Chely’s life, my decade old comment – ‘Good, thank God’ – was taken the wrong way. I was clumsily trying to express my relief that even a country boy like me had a one-in-a-million chance of having a beer with a woman as talented and attractive as Chely. For years after that conversation, Chely invited me to perform at charity events. In all that time, I wish she would have said something directly to me before the book’s publicity tour, especially since some of the comments attributed to me in the book are not mine. But I am happy for her and only wish her the best in her personal and professional life."

Hm. Seems a little bitter that he was dragged into this.

What do U think?? Is John's apology sincere??

Country Singer John Rich Is An Asshole!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayLGBT


Now that country star Chely Wright has come out, she discusses the difficulty she faced coming to grips with her self. And that includes a difficult time with bigoted fellow singer, John Rich.

“Early in my life I went through what I think a lot of gay people go through, thinking that I could change and pray it away,” said Chely.

As she tells Access Hollywood, her lowest point came during a discussion with Rich.

She divluged:

“He said, "You're not gay are you?!" I said, "No, John, I'm not." He said, "Good, thank God." And that began a spiral for me. I had a meltdown shortly after that.”

It go so bad that she considered shooting herself with a loaded gun.

“I was looking at myself in a mirror…as I was about to do it. I just looked at myself and something snapped and I started to cry…and I realized I have too much to live for. I may lose my career in country music, that will break my heart, but it's okay. I have a lot of different pieces of my heart that matter and that's what I've come to learn.”

So brave.

Country Singer Chely Wright Is About To Announce She's Gay!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayMusic MinuteLGBT


Singer/songwriter Chely Wright is about to make history as the first country music artist to declare she's gay.

The 39-year-old singer is most known for her hit "Single White Female" and was named Academy of Country Music's New Arists of the Year in 1999.

She's been romantically linked to Brad Paisley as well as many other male celebs in the past.

This could be be HUGE in the country world so she may be taking a gamble with her career.

We think it's great you're coming out, Chely!! Good for you!!
