Sanjaya Malakar: I’m Not Gay, I Just Understand Women


Swoon-inspiring American Idol phenom Sanjaya explains to People why he inspires such a strong reaction from females:

Sanjaya_malakar“I’ve always gotten along with girls better because I was raised by women. I got teased in school because people figured I must be gay because I understand women. I think that’s why guys didn’t like me – because I got along with girls so well. When I went up to girls they would give me a hug and a kiss on the cheek like I was their gay friend. But I was the straight guy that understood them…I had a girlfriend but she became clingy, and I didn’t want to get into a really serious relationship because I was 16. I just wanted to date and have fun”

Sanjaya was roasted once again on last night’s Idol Gives Back telethon following Jack Black’s amusing performance of “Kiss from a Rose”, clipped here below…
