After several blogs have mentioned that singer Duncan James of the UK boy band, Blue has admitted having "relationships with men as well as women," we dug up some fruity photos of the poor-man's Brad Pitt to share with you. No, it's not like when Ricky Martin kinda sorta admitted that "his heart could belong to a man or a woman"—Mr. James has definitively came out as bi.
The 31-year-old said: "I was living a secret life. I went through a process of asking what the f*** am I? Am I gay? Am I straight? Am I bi? That's why I was so frightened about talking. Now, in my early 30s, I know who I am and I'm proud of who I am. I don't want to hide anymore. Duncan revealed he had his first relationship with a man back in 2001 when Blue were celebrating their first three No1 hits. The dad-of-one explained how up until then he had never been intimate with a man and had been happy having girlfriends.
He said: "But I met a guy. He was my friend at first but we took the friendship to the next level. Up until that point I'd never had those feelings towards a guy before. But this person came into my life and put a spanner in the works. I definitely loved him. It was my first experience like that. I never believed I could have those feelings for a guy. It had been so closed to me being a strict Catholic."
He continued, 'I'm sure a lot of gay people would be put off with the thought of having sex with a woman. It's not like that for me. I still find women attractive. 'I don't feel it's harder to be with a guy. This has been my life now for a long time. It's not a big deal to me anymore. But I've slept with way more women than me."
One blog in particular has called James, "the man with the biggest knob in pop" and in the interest of journalistic integrity (re: cum), we'd like some photographic proof. Hell, we can say that we're smuggling the Holy Grail, Jimmy Hoffa, and Bigfoot in our briefs, but without pics it's just baseless. You just can't go around saying "such-and-such obscure pop star has a soup can cock" all willy-nilly and cause a rash of distracting boners. That's irresponsible social journalism. What're a bunch of cock-starved music lovers with blue balls to do? Oh well, there's always Pete Wentz's cock (too bad Pete's straight...).
