Jessie J Comes Out as Straight, Says Bisexuality Was a 'Phase'

Jessiej

British pop star Jessie J tells the UK's Mirror that she's now straight:

The star, who had previously said she was bisexual, spoke candidly to 3am about her changing sexuality.

“For me, it was a phase,” she says. “But I’m not saying bisexuality is a phase for everybody.

“I feel that if I continue my career not speaking on it, I almost feel more of a liar than if I didn’t. I just want to be honest, and it’s really not a big deal. Who cares?”

Jessie adds:

"I did talk about it, and I was open about it, and I do support being lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender - love who you want. That’s what I’m doing. I don’t regret anything I ever said, but I never knew back then that whatever I said became a fact that I couldn’t change. I’m just so bored of it, and that’s kind of it – I want to stop talking about it completely now and find myself a husband. It’s a true struggle. All the chick flicks that didn’t make sense to me, I now understand – Sex and the City is real! I’m not anything. I’m aware of who I want to be and I want to marry a man. That’s it."


Trey Songz: I'm Not Gay

Trey

Earlier this week singer, rapper and actor Trey Songz was the apparent victim of a Twitter hoax that alleged he was gay and ready to come out. A photoshopped tweet attributed to the singer's account read, "I think it’s time to finally tell my fans. All games and jokes aside…I’m gay,” according to Hollywoodlife.com. The tweet quickly went viral. However, Trey has since come forward to refute the rumors: 

The things you people craft up with hatred in your hearts. The things people believe without question, or validity, all baffles me.

— Trey Songz (@TreySongz) March 26, 2014

Photoshop and a retweet is all people need to believe, any and everything. I feel bad for the impressionable, no minds of their own.

If I'm gay then Tupac bringing me a ounce for this session wit Biggie tomorrow. No weapon. #LOVE

NFL Free Agent Kerry Rhodes Addresses Gay Rumors: 'I Emphatically Said No...'

NFL free agent Kerry Rhodes addressed rumors he is gay in two separate interview sessions this week. The first was with ESPN and Rhodes denies he was blacklisted after rumors began circulating last year that he was in a relationship with his male assistant, supported by affectionate photos of the two of them together:

Rhodes"I don't think I was blacklisted," Rhodes said during a phone interview Tuesday. "Especially with the NFL I don't think they would do that ... to me it was a product of me wanting to do other things and not finding the right opportunity."

As the NFL is about to welcome the first openly gay player in Michael Sam, who will enter the NFL draft this season, many assume Rhodes had not been offered a job after a former associate told a number of websites that Rhodes was gay. Some speculated that Rhodes wouldn't feel comfortable coming out, but Rhodes said that has never been the case.

"I emphatically said no once and that's all I need to say and people who know me know that's definitely not the case," Rhodes said. "To me I'm definitely not and I can't control what people think, so I move on."

Rhodes also commented on the league's would-be first gay player Michael Sam:

Rhodes said he thinks Sam will have to prove himself, just like every rookie does, in order to be accepted.

"Not just him being Michael Sam the gay player, with his sexuality being at the forefront," Rhodes said. "But accepting him as him as a man and as a player."

Sam's teammates may face more scrutiny, but Rhodes doesn't expect that the locker room will need to change to accommodate the first openly gay player.

"I don't think the locker room will change," Rhodes said. "I think they will be more cognizant of it, it's such a big deal right now. I think they'll try to police it a little more but I don't think the locker room will change. Every locker room has a different dynamic."

Rhodes again addressed the rumors (a popular topic) in an AMA on Deadspin yesterday:

Questioner Sam G: "Are you kind of peeved that everyone assumed you were gay, or at least closeted, after the reports from your assistant? It seems like the media kind of jumped on that story quickly and the narrative became one of a talented corner being blacklisted because he's gay, regardless of your comments on the subject. Personally, I think this stems from people wanting to see an openly gay player in the NFL because it would be a very public step in the equal rights movement, and would be a pretty big deal for gay folks in athletics everywhere."

Rhodes: "Great question. I agree with you in the sense that the media and or blogs are way too quick to report a story without investigating what is really going on first."

Rhodes was also asked if he thinks there's something wrong with being gay since he declined to make a "not that there's anything wrong with that" statement in the ESPN interview.

Said Rhodes: "I have friends from various backgrounds. Of course there is nothing wrong with being gay."

Rhodes also answered "yes" when asked if he's tired of the gay discussion.
