American Idol Runner-Up Blake Lewis: I’m Not Gay

American Idol runner-up told Arizona radio show Johnjay & Rich that rumors about any kind of relationship with fellow contestant Chris Richardson are not true. He’s not dating fellow contestant Jordin Sparks either.

Said Lewis, when asked if he is gay: “Definitely not. No. I’m straight. I’ll scream it out loud.”

Lewis recently revealed he’s busy at work on his new album:

“I’d classify it as electro-funk-soul-pop if you need to label it. I really love the sounds of the ‘80s so I hope to ring some of that back. I’m really inspired by electronic music. It’s on the chopping block because they want it out by Thanksgiving or Christmas. I’ve been working for such a long time writing a lot of songs in different genres. The first album is really a testament of who you are.”
