Joan Rivers Wants Gays To Stay In The Closet

By: / June 28, 2010

Joan Rivers may have just lost her chance at becoming a gay icon.

The outspoken comedian is stirring up controversy by urging young gay stars to stay in the closet. Her reason? It’s bad for their careers if they are honest about their sexuality:

If you’re going to be a romantic idol and try to get every teenage girl to love you, then you’d be an a** to come out and say you’re gay. Ricky Martin was so smart. He did what he did, made his millions and then he said, ‘Guess what, everybody? I’m gay…’ It didn’t matter anymore because he didn’t have to bring in 16-year-old girls.

Hm, does Joan really know what 16-year-old girls want? Last time we checked plenty of girls seem to enjoy Adam Lambert’s music even he’s gay.

Do you agree with Joan’s comments?
