JC Chasez: The Fact of the Matter is I’m a Straight Guy


At last night’s live finale of Randy Jackson Presents: America’s Best Dance Crew, JC Chasez repeated assertions about his relationship with Chace Crawford to People: “You know what, it’s laughable the first time. I think the tenth time, it gets annoying. I don’t care about [people’s] assumptions or anything, but when people outright lie, that’s wrong. So I think that part of the rumor is outright stupid. The fact of the matter is I’m a straight guy and I’m allowed to have [guy] friends.”

    Towleroad should be ashamed to harass young men like that. Who cares whether they’re straight, supposedly straight or gay? Show some maturity and leave these young guys alone. Enough already.

  2. Ted B. (Charging Rhino) says

    Reminds me of the saying we had back when I was in High School in the 70’s, “You can’t call them ‘lesbians’ unless you catch them sharing a dildo”.

  3. Shane says

    So why is it we as a community attack Jay Leno for his gayest face challenge to Ryan Phillipe, insisting it’s homophobic… but even after posts and reports of JC telling everyone flat out he’s straight we assume he’s secretly gay because of how he looks and acts?

  4. virgoboy says

    Andy, i love you and have the utmost respect for both you and TOWLEROAD but i think it is time to move on. Doesn’t really seem to be too much happening here… yet.

  5. Nate says

    amen to that, Shane.

    what the hell is wrong with people that you feel a need to 1.incessantly invade people’s personal lives and 2.perpetuate stereotypes? (straight and gay)

  6. Sebastian says

    If he says he is not gay, that should be the end of it, just because he is the only cute one that was in that band, and likes to hang out with his buds, like many straight cute guys do, he should now officially stop answering the question, unless a sex tape appears that says otherwise.

  7. PistolPetey says

    The only thing missing was the “not that there’s anything wrong with that.”

    C’mon, it’s 2008, is it really that annoying for people to wonder, then ask?

    If you want to be a celeb, then you’re going to have to deal with it. So deal with it, JC.

    In short: BFD. Don’t get your panties in a bunch ya big baby.

  8. Paul R says

    Umm, we invade their private lives because they’re celebrities. And it’s on this site becuase it’s gay-related material. Andy didn’t say anything about the kid. He just provided his quotation.

  9. BryanNYC says

    So many commenters on here are bitter and mean. Let’s take him at his word and drop it. And next time we feel the need to harass someone who may or may not be closeted, we should look in the mirror first. How many of us are perfect and were born out and proud? As easy as it might feel now for some of us, we should always remember what it feels like to be closeted and scared.

    What message are we sending to people in the closet who we should be supporting? Where’s our compassion?

  10. Joshua says

    Why don’t gays ever claim the ugly ones? My God some of you would have hand to hand combat with a Special Forces guy to defend your claims that half of the hot guys in Hollywood are gay. Get over it people.

  11. ken says

    It’s gossip and that is a human tendancy to talk about people. People can be all righteous about it, but it ain’t going away. Gay gossip shoudn’t be deemed any more or less harmful as straight gossip. As long as people can’t laugh off gay gossip whether true or not, it’s a sign that homophobic attitude is alive and well. In the case of JC, he has had quite alot of gay gossips well before this Chace affair, so it’s not a case of “gay people claiming him”. It’s more like where there’s smoke, there’s JC. Coincidence?

  12. Ed says

    “Some of you would have hand to hand combat with a Special Forces guy to defend your claims that half of the hot guys in Hollywood are gay.”


    You had me at “Special Forces guy.” Would this Special Forces guy perchance be hot and shirtless?

  13. Troy says

    Why is asking JC if he’s dating Chace an invasion? Would you squawk “leave him alone!” if the media wondered if he were with Blake Lively? I can’t believe you feel sorry for this guy and his panicked need to address the matter with more than a simple “no”.
