I think the UK need a new great gay singer one that is bold and isnt afraid of wearing a weave and sing songs like "alexandra burkes - bad boys" or "start without you" like her, like a gay beyonce, and i dont mean "omg im soo, ahhh" but a gay guy that doesnt sing about how it hurts being that way or sad songs like adam lambert, clay aiken and those, someone with power, at would tare up the clubs and also be taken seriously and be someone extremely down to earth dont u all agree?

I've never known a gay guy to wear a weave, but besides that bit, that would be cool. So a little like Jaymi from Union J but solo?

I think Will Young does us fine the last thing the gay community need is a stereotype why not just an average joe that happens to be gay a bit like Russel Tovey.

The part about the weave was a bit confusing but otherwise that sounds pretty cool.
The UK seems to be more into boy bands than solo males though.

That's be great except it won't happen, male solosits, especially when they start out young, need to attract the teenage girls, if they can't then they won't attain the instant success, a gay guy wouldn't attract the girls because he would be seen as completely unattainable.

Perhaps Rylan will release a single now that BB is over for the year?

Yes a new good soulful voice like George Michael's will be great.

PS. I miss Top Of The Pops on the Thursday night.

We're all waiting for Harry Styles to announce his solo career.

Would they really though? I can't see anybody taking that seriously. A stereotype gay guy who wears a weave (for some reason) and sings about boys. It kind of screams novelty act and not a good one at that.

I completely understand what you mean by the female public teenage girls buying all of the records, but i think if he could appeal to the gay community and maybe i dunno bullied kids or something like that no idea...i think the gay community is strong enough to get a singer like that top 5 records let alone top 10, no???

Agreed. Chart music is principally aimed at hormonal teenage girls (like my niece!!)

But if Blaine from Glee was a real person, I am 100% sure he'd have a huge female fanbase. Even as a TV show character he does now.

I get where your coming from i do our thinking of someone like Sylvester http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oG2ixYJ79iE


But personall i think Will Young is a far better gay role model that some novelty gay wearing a weave

But crucially, does he wear a weave?
