Let’s be perfectly clear: To our knowledge, none of these singers is gay, openly or otherwise. But that doesn’t mean people haven’t wondered, whispered or wished. Some of these guys (and gals) have set off the world’s collective gaydar, some have sparked persistent gay rumors, some have actively flirted with gay audiences, and some have simply set gay hearts aflutter. We’ll leave it to you to figure out who’s who.

1  Shake It | Sakis Rouvas (Greece, 2004)
Stealing a page from the Paul Oscar playbook, sexy Sakis Rouvas surrounds himself with barely clad girls in the video for 2004 Greek entry “Shake It,” and yet still reads as deeply gay. Is it a shameless act of gay-baiting? We don’t really care, please just let us keep watching. One of Greece‘s biggest celebrities and an active supporter of LGBT rights, Rouvas took 3rd place with this song at Eurovision 2004. He returned in 2009 with “This Is Our Night”, which took 7th place in that year’s final.

There will be a pre-show VIP reception at 6:30 P.M. and the performance will begin at 8:00 P.M. The evening is written and hosted by Justin Sayre and directed by Peter James Cook.

In this chilling first look in to the new documentary about the late-singer Amy Winehouse’s life, we get snippets of an interview with the singer. “I don’t. I don’t think I’m gonna be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it. I would probably go mad,” she tells the interviewer. The documentary, which is being touted by critics, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Russian Lawmaker Accuses Apple of Distributing Gay Porn Thanks to the Free U2 Cover Art

While many of us found ourselves confused when a random song began to play on our iPhones, most didn’t look at their screen and freak out because of the album-cover photo, most freaked out because there was a mysterious U2 album on it. In Russia, though, the free album that was given to all iPhone users who updated their phones, was seen as violating anti-gay propaganda laws because the album cover shows the band’s drummer Larry Mullen Jr with his 18-year-old son Elvis—both shirtless.. The concern comes form Alexander Starovoitov, a member of the right-wing LDPR party, who felt that the album “Songs of Innocence” ‘corrupted’ youths. Starovoitov says he’s ready to sue Apple for breaking the controversial and discriminatory Russian anti-gay law. “I, like many Russian citizens, own an iPhone. In 2014, the band U2 forced my phone to download their new album. Their cover album depicts two men, which in my view, depicts the expression of a non-traditional sexual relationship to each other.

Legendary disco-era DJ/producer Giorgio Moroder’s upcoming album Déjà Vu already made waves last week with the release of his song with Sia, and now he’s the number-one trending topic on Twitter thanks to a collaboration with none other than Britney Spears—the cover of “Tom’s Diner.” This is Moroder’s first album in 30 years, and he was partly inspired by his work with Daft Punk in 2013. While many details about the album have been kept secret, in recent weeks we learned the track list (which features songs by Britney Spears, Kelis, and Kylie Minogue). And today, the Moroder gods granted us our first listen of Tom’s Diner.

The March Madness Music Fest on Saturday, ahead of the NCAA basketball tournament in Indiana, got political as both Rihanna and Bleachers frontman Jack Antonoff used their time on stage to call out the discriminatory law. Rihanna, who debuted a new song called “American Oxygen,” also took a few seconds during the show to call out Governor Pence and the law that will allow businesses to legally discriminate against LGBT people. “Who’s feeling these new bullshit laws that they’re trying to pass over here? I say fuck that shit,” she told the crowd as captured in video footage on Facebook. “We’re just living our motherfucking lives, Indiana.” Also, Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff sported a shirt that read “Protect LGBT Hoosiers.” [E!]

 

 

Outrage at Jamie Foxx Over Transphobic Bruce Jenner Jokes

It’s seems like Bruce Jenner, who is reportedly undergoing a gender transition, is the butt of many jokes, despite never publicly announcing that he is transgender. Unfortunately, this hasn’t stopped comedians like Jamie Foxx from making fun of Jenner. At last night’s televised I Heart Radio Award Foxx MCed the evening and opened up by saying. “”We got some groundbreaking performances, here too, tonight,” Foxx said. “We got Bruce Jenner, who will be doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself,” said Foxx with a picture of Jenner on the screen. “I’m just busting your balls—while I still can.”

This type of humor is dangerous, especially during a concert-type awards show where many high school- and middle school-aged kids watch. Luckily his joke was poorly received, particularly by the celebrities in the audience. Perez Hilton immediately fired back saying: “Boo! Shame on you #iHeartAwards for allowing @iamjamiefoxx to be transphobic on national television! Those #BruceJenner jokes were wrong!!!”
