    Good luck to you, Cheyenne. These changes can’t be easy. Don’t listen to the nay-sayers. Sadly, there are those who will use your personal events/issues to try to beat you down.
    I can’t wait to see what your next projects are!

    Seriously. Becoming a celebrity then making a stating about how terrible it is to have to make a statement about your personal life. You know what? You don’t “have to” make statements about your personal life.

  3. Eric says

    As others have pointed out, no one is forcing him to make statements about his personal life. As I learned a long time ago when I was a young lad, just because someone asks you a question doesn’t mean you have to acknowledge it, yet alone answer it.

    Your integrity as an artist and your “life” events towards authenticity are inspirational. Stay on your path, good man. Your “vermont” fan club will keep you in our thoughts.

    In other words, my addiction destroyed my marriage.
    He’d said AA, not alcoholic, makes me wonder if he wound up on the Tina Train to Tragedy.

    So, you didn’t read the entire article then?

    “It also is a very sad time because I’m going through a divorce, but yeah, I mean, you know, some members of my family didn’t even know I was in Alcoholics Anonymous, so that was pretty f**ked up to actually have people [find out that way]…”

    Cry me a freaking river. You VOLUNTARILY go into a profession that you know you have made it because you become famous/well known (in his case his fame is mostly limited to the gay world) and then complain when people want to know about your life? How about you go into a profession like accounting if you don’t want people curious about your private life, especially when you actively seek publicity and attention.

    So you’re new in AA?

    You know what they tell new people? Take the cotton out of your ears & put it in your mouth.

    If you do, you might hear someone talk about anonymity at the level of press, media, & film.

    Here’s 50cents, call your sponsor.

    If Jackson doesn’t want to be forced to make a statement about his divorce, he might choose to be more discreet when hitting on guys at parties.

    The tattoo really doesn’t make much sense as a Christmas present for his dad. I wonder how much of that interview is just P.R. BS.

    This all came out because he went to that hollywood Speedo party given by some celeb. and he was showing off his new boyfriend and tattoos. The boyfriend was somebody who was once (or still is) heavily into drugs and alcohol and Cheyenne has a history of both. Supposedly they met at AA last year.

    These celebrities have way too much money which means they don’t have to work much which means they have way too much time on their hands. Then they start getting into tattoos, alcohol, drugs, cheating on their partners, religions etc – anything to relieve their boredom.
    They need to get REAL jobs like the rest of us and then they wouldn’t have time to invent these little crises for media attention.

    I have no sympathy for these lazy, over-privileged celebrities.

    AA: At the public level of press, radio, TV, films and other media technologies such as the Internet, anonymity stresses the equality in the Fellowship of all members by putting the brake on those who might otherwise exploit their A.A. affiliation to achieve recognition, power, or personal gain.

  12. Michael says

    I love how honesty is downplayed here. He was forthright and open about it and some people think he deserves to be fed to the wolves. It’s not like gay people have so many allies that we can attack each other like this. You should be ashamed of yourselves. I suppose you are just treating him like an equal, but that doesn’t mean much when you have no respect for yourself. I have no right to condone/condemn him, but apparently some of you think that you were given that right. You are all such epitomes of virtue and morality. And to think that we try to fight against hypocrisy.

  13. Skeptical Cicada says

    Wow, now I have even less respect for him than before he opened his mouth. What a self-pitying whiney ass. Duh, if you prance around with an AA tattoo what in the hell do you expect people to think?

  14. Fred says

    I’m a little surprised at all the buttwipe remarks about how he doesn’t HAVE to make a statement about his personal life.

    Remarks from the same buttwipes that dis Kevin Spacy and anyone else who is gay for doing just that.

    Please, all you hypocrites, just STFU.

  15. m.r. says

    He had to make a statement to counteract what the gossip sites were saying.

    Sites like Queerty were reporting that he was at a pool party in LA last weekend with a guy he introduced as his boyfriend even though he wasn’t divorced from Monte and he was sporting some tattoos that looked like prison tattoos to those who saw it up close.

    There was also separate gossip saying he cheated on Monte with a guy he met in AA( supposedly the same guy at the party) & they’re moving in together.

    His statement and explanation was to stop all that speculation that he was in the midst of a mid life crisis.

  16. Buckie Weston says

    I don’t know why anyone would really care that much about his personal life and relationships.

    Unless, of course, you have neither of your own to tend to !
