Joe McElderry On Being Gay On Twitter, Orgies And ‘Sex With Simon Cowell’

by | 31st, July 2010

JOE McElderry is gay. Yeah, the big-toothed singer who won X Factor with an impression of a Jonas Brother at a school concert is a homosexual. It’s front-page news on the Sun.

Previously Joe was known for being blocked from reaching the Christmas number 1 slot by a successful campaign to elevate Rage Against The Machine to the top spot.

Joe has decided to tell everyone he is gay because:

a) It’s a slow news day?
b) The X Factor is coming around again and people have forgotten who the hell he is?
c) It’s easier talking about your sexuality than having a hit song?
d) Simon Cowell told him to?
e) Someone “hacked” into his Twitter account and aid he was gay?
f) He’s recording a new album?

The answer is (e), apparently. Says Joe:

“I think the Twitter thing was the point when I realised I was gay. I just looked at it and thought, ‘Should I be more bothered about this’? Because I wasn’t, that’s when it clicked and I thought maybe I was. It was a turning point, definitely.

Twitter didn’t out him. The “hacker” enabled Twitter woke Joe up to himself. And he told his mum:

“I told my mum first on the train. I’d been really quiet and she asked what was wrong. I just said to her, ‘Listen, I’ve got something to tell you. You know the Twitter thing? I had nothing to do with it, Mum, but it was true’. She said, ‘What, that you are gay’? And I said, ‘Yeah.’”

We wonder what life would have been like for Joe had the mystery coppice on Twitter said “I am Joe McElderry – and I am into orgies with groupies”; or “I am Joe McElderry – and I do it with pets?”; or “I am Joe McElderry – and I’d love to shag Ashley Cole while Simon Cowell gives me tips”?

Says Joe, not on Twitter:

“I spoke to Simon direct. He rang a couple of nights ago and I missed his call but I spoke to him about half an hour ago. He said, ‘Hi, it’s Simon. You know, I 100 per cent agree with what you are doing. It’s fantastic. I am here at the end of the phone if you need any support and we are thrilled for what you’re doing’.”

Indeed, finally Joe McElderry can be known for something new…
