Jedward: We're Not Gay


The Jedward twins, former X-Factor contestants seen earlier this summer meeting President Obama, are not gay according to their manager. Their manager issued a statement after Big Brother UK contestant Darryn Lyons (seen here with his prosthetic abs) suggested they were.

Metro UK reports:

The twins were defended by tour manager Liam McKenna as they took the Channel 5 reality show to an infantile low on Monday, lapping up their punishment of being dressed as babies...‘Darryn was just stirring s***. They’re not gay,’ insisted McKenna.

McKenna said the twins are celibate because they follow their idols The Jonas Brothers:

‘I don’t know if they’re overly religious, I think it’s just a conscious decision they made. They said they didn’t want sex before marriage. I think the boys live their life by these guys. They are really shy. I’m sure they do fancy girls but don’t like talking about sex as they’re probably aware that their granny is watching!’

  1. Wow.. they're really gonna try that aren't they? Interesting. Well, I'm not gay either. My boyfriend's not gay either. And my mother has been a virgin her whole life. Just ask my four brothers.

    This is fun.

  2. If their tour manager has at least two of his five senses he'll know John and Edward are gay.

  3. I don't know what they are. Hopefully, they'll fall into obscurity and we'll never find out about it.

  4. These two are the GLBT's last hope.

  5. Yes they're celibate.

    Just like Catholic priests.

  6. Their manager "defended" them is offensive, "clarified" is appropriate.

  7. People sure have some confused notions of what it means to be gay. Sex isn't required to be gay, just a primary emotional or affectional attraction to the same gender.
    I knew I was gay for 15 years before I had sex with anyone. Being gay is an orientation not a sexual act. Being celibate doesn't make one not-gay, just as having sex with someone of the same gender does not make one gay.

  8. I still prefer to think that Jedward is a product of mitosis and gay would not be the appropriate adjective for their species.

    But I know that's just the fremdschämen talking.

  9. Wait a minute -- they're willing to go on TV and do *THAT* and their manager is afraid of someone calling them gay? So afraid he has to "defend" them?

    Um, he may want to defend them from tanking any semblance of a career they may have by avoiding letting them go on TV and do things like dressing up in diapers, pretending to be babies.

    I think my brain is about to explode.

  10. I agree with Ryan. What will grandma think of the baby act?

  13. I get the feeling they arent gay or straight. Sexuality doesnt come into it when its your twin, right?

  14. Glad their manager came to their defense from this horrible aspersion on their good names.

  15. I have no idea who these twerps are, but their manager is a moron. The proper response is to say NOTHING. By saying nothing you let people imagine what they want (which sells more 'records' or whatever they're called these days) and offends nobody. The moment you say "I'm X" then all the "Y" people hate you.

    Since this is such a basic principle of management, I suspect the manager is having sex with one/both of them (or really, really wants to) and is making this idiotic statement thinking it will deflect suspicion.

  16. These boys could def use some therapy.

  17. Whoa, so much Jedward hate. I thought that clip was hilarious. And I find them strangely attractive.

  18. who cares what they do sexually i find it kind of disturbing two grown men sitting around in diapers with baby bottles. the state of tv today just keeps dealing to the lowest common
    denominator. it was once called a vast waste land today it is totally barren.

  19. This is the manager, wow

  20. They're not gay? Thank God. The Hets can have 'em.

  21. Gosh, they look revolting. You can have them, straighties.

    Posted by: jason | Aug 31, 2011 8:40:08 AM

  22. Ew. If all goes well I will never have to see/hear about them ever again.

    Posted by: ravewulf | Aug 31, 2011 10:06:06 AM

  23. They probably are neutral more like Eunuchs with their high pitched voice and child like bodies.

  24. Well that was interesting...Huh.

    Posted by: NSRob | Aug 31, 2011 11:09:03 AM

  25. Yeah right! I don't believe that for one second. I quiet honestly wouldn't be that shocked if they are all incest-y.. They remind me of those twins that do porn together. I can't remember their names. But, these two are that level of close. Do they ever spend time apart? Don't they share a bed? sigh.
