James Blunt Comes Out As An Honorary Gay

James Blunt, best known for his 2003 hit You’re Beautiful (apologies if it’ll be stuck in your head the rest of the day), but, you know, for other songs also we’re sure, has revealed in an interview with BBC that he takes being called gay as a compliment.

For the record, he isn’t — but as a sensitive singer-songwriter type, it’s come up more than a few times during his career in the public sphere.

“I sing songs that aren’t very macho,” he said, “and people will say oh, you know, that you’re ‘effeminate’ or ‘gay’ as if calling me gay would be an insult. But to call me gay is a compliment and I would like to be considered an honorary gay man because I’m totally at ease with myself.”

“Also, if I’d been macho, I’d just have had an audience full of men,” he added.
