    Never underestimate the stupidity of the straights…not the straights who read my site, you all are cool with me! So, please don't send me emails or post messages saying, "Not all of the straights are like that!"

    My Monday interview with Kelly Rowland has made the rounds from the internet to radio stations in Los Angeles. I thought the chatter would be Ms. Kelly saying she has never experienced racism or being a dark-skinned woman in the industry hasn't affected her career. Do you know what many are getting out of the interview? That Kelly Rowland is a lesbian…what in Sam Hill?

    You mean to tell me because the girl supports the gays and said Angelina Jolie is her “girl-crush”, the safest girl-crush to say on the planet, people think she is a carpet muncher? Kelly Rowland is just as likely to bump and grind with a woman as Tyler Perry!

    The interview was pretty obvious that it was tongue and cheek and although I shouldn’t be shocked—I am. Do people have no basic comprehension skills? Here is the question many of the straights are having a breakdown about.

    Who would be your girl-crush in hip-hop or Hollywood?
    I’d say…that’s so hard, it is…I think like an Angelina Jolie or a Drew Barrymore. [Laughs] I know that’s two totally different people but I just love how confident they are. I love how happy Drew Barrymore is all time. Angelina Jolie has just got that confident beauty thing going for her—she is absolutely stunning.

    To prove my point here are some comments from several message boards about Kelly supposedly living life on the DL. It gets pretty ignorant…

    XXX-
    i said it second kelly is gay, don't be surprise that she comes out and admits it. after all she was engaged and broke it off because of some lame excuse, and she's now seeing a football player, and not passing booty?? this whole world is turning gay

    XXXXX-
    Homosexuality is an Abomination , Which means Detestable in the sight of "God",A friend of the world in an enemy to"God". Are you not a believer? (Kelly)

    XXX
    I don't go to gay clubs dance in gay areas none of that! If you are not that why visit that. Birds of a feather flop together...Check That.....Kelly do not sleep with men but dancing and sanging in gay clubs come on Kelly you are not fooling nobody you and bi sexual EVE!

    XXX -
    So does this mean she's givin dick up for real. Kelly say it aint so.

    XXXX -
    i think kelly is a lesbian the way she is always talking about Bee. she doesn't strike me has the type who likes men at all. no disrespect. i believe she on the DL.

    XXX -
    Kelly loves her some white folks. I wouldn't be surprised if she came out of that closet. What straight woman has homo crushes?

    XXX-
    What's up with Kelly? First Orlando Bloom, now this.

    XXX –
    I'm so sick of black people jumping on white folks bandwagons. White people are always talking about having crushes on same-sex celebrities but claiming to be straight. Not cool at all. I have this pic of Kells & Bey and the way Kells is holding her azz you would think that is her man and Bey is all up on her posted up. Think about it, there were a lot of lonely nights while growing up together and while touring. Although I do believe that Bey has moved on from that "experimental phase" and is NOW "strickly" now that she has found her true MALE love!

    XXXX -
    kelly is a lesbo

    beyonce is a mini-lesbo = BEARD

    jayz is gay

    that's the true story folks ..

    XXXX –
    Why would a straight woman like GAY clubs in particular? That is so ...EWWWW .

    XXX -
    Kellyi s a dyke end ofstory.

    XXXX -
    Hmmm. . . she doesn't like sex, always riding Bey's clit, can't keep a man, plus she wasn't raised by her mother and Tina "adopted" her . . . well it's official Kelly is GAY.

    XXX -
    THIS IS THE ONLY WAY SHE THINKS SHE'LL BE ACCEPTED BY THEM. BUT SHE WON'T...SO SAD...WITH HER BLACK ASS.

    One person attempts to talk some sense into the straights:

    Hello the man that interviewed her is gay himself...Besides she does have to support the gay community because she does have gay fans. I wonder how many people bothered to check the source and read the other questions. Dude str8 up asked her who her girl crush would be, lol, what was she supposed to say, I hate gay people knowing that they make up a large part of her already small fanbase? He also directly asked her about Bey and DC. Drop some black names so we caqn feel good while we're still not buying her shit. Wake up! Beyonce slipped and she only said that she 'MAKES MUSIC FOR BLACK PEOPLE' and instantly her sales for B-day started slipping. This girl is no fool, she knows who has the purchasing power in America. People been doing it for years. Shit, I don't really buy albums so I sure as hell wouldn't be knocking nobody hustle whos trying to sell um. And don't bother replying to mw telling me you buy albums cuz you would be one of the few black folks that actually do.
