Oh, gurl! Did you nod off during the interview and forget that we live in 2010??
"If you’re going to be a romantic idol and try to get every teenage girl to love you, then you’d be an ass to come out and say you’re gay. That’s why Ricky Martin was so smart — he did what he did, he made his millions, and then he said, “Guess what, everybody? I’m gay, I’m having this life, and here are my children.” It didn’t matter anymore because he didn’t have to bring in 16-year-old girls.
If you’re looking at someone who’s your idol, thinking that maybe one day they’ll come ring your doorbell, you don’t want to hear, “There’s no chance in hell, honey, but still buy a ticket to the movie.”
We suppose a fanbase of young gay men looking for a role model just isn't needed by these celebrity idols!
Luckily, Joan is so old at this point that she can just write off everything she says as "Back in my day…" rambles! Let's just hope she sticks to topics she actually knows about next time!
What do U think?? Are Joan's comments out of line??
