“What’s always pi**ed me off about ‘Idol’ is wanting to mask that, for that to go unspoken,” says Levine. “C’mon. You can’t be publicly gay? At this point? On a singing competition? Give me a break. You can’t hide basic components of these people’s lives. The fact that ‘The Voice’ didn’t have any qualms about being completely about it is a great thing.”
Levine became passionate about this issue after Adam Lambert claims while on AI he was forced to keep his sexual preference quiet.
Levine also discusses having a gay brother.
“We all really wanted to provide some cushion for him and constantly let him know that it’s OK. A lot of people don’t want their kid to be gay and will fight it all costs, but I’ve got news for you—it’s a losing f**king battle.”
Kevin Spacey, one of the most gifted and memorable actors of this generation, has long been private about his sexuality and personal life, causing many to speculate that Spacey is a homosexual.
In an interview with Kevin Sessums of The Daily Beast, Spacey touched on the matter and had this to say:
“Look, I might have lived in England for the last several years but I’m still an American citizen and I have not given up my right to privacy.
…People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone’s reasons in the same box. It’s just a line I’ve never crossed and never will.
I don’t live a lie. You have to understand that people who choose not to discuss their personal lives are not living a lie. That is a presumption that people jump to. I think this is a very important issue to be discussed. I do. Mainly because of how sad it is that young people in this country—and even around the world where they don’t have the freedoms and rights we do—are being subjected to the kinds of abuse they are being subjected to. That’s what is shameful.”
I’m not trying to insinuate anything that isn’t there, however I think reading between the lines will tell you that Spacey is homosexual, but why is it anybody’s business but his? To come out and say it would simply be a complete contradiction to the principle that sexuality is a private matter. Spacey may be gay, just don’t ask him about it.
Not that there’s anything wrong with it.
