      Closeted bisexual more like it.

  2. I wish straight people would stop saying things like this. It’s incredibly invalidating towards our experiences and clearly they only say it because clearly they’re in the position where they know they can say it without actually having to have any of the negative stuff that goes with it. Not to mention what he said was sexist. He has money. People who date him will take advantage of that regardless of gender.

    1. I agree, I never say as much to them because I know that it’s just their way of saying they’re totally cool with it, but damn! I used to say I wish I was black all the time because I really wanted an afro, but it’s always so easy to see the positive side of being a minority when you’ve never been exposed to the negative side of being a minority.

      People always seem to forget the systematic prejudice that comes with the territory…

    Ridiculous statement. Nobody forced him to date gold-digging women let alone fork out money on them. I find his self-serving comment insulting as if our lives and daily existence are easier than his, irrespective of the equality we’ve achieved. An insensitive comment to say the least.

    No thank you, Mr. Cowell, we wouldn’t want you in our team.

  6. It doesn’t matter how much he’s being supposedly ‘gay-friendly’. It’s still a misogynistic/sexist comment.

  7. I wish he hadn’t been born at all … for the harm he’s done to the music industry!

    1. Lol I can’t stop laughing@ that one

  8. Str8 guys …. guys who love to moan about being screwed by bitches ;-)

  9. wow not only mildly homophobic, that’s super sexist. i hope it was worth it simon

    I wish he was born gay, too. That centre hair part has got to go! What is this, 1981?
