Is Taylor Hicks Gay?

Well the National Enquirer wants you to think he's worried about rampant Internet rumors to that effect...

American Idol winner Taylor Hicks is caught up in a raging gay sex scandal!


The ENQUIRER has learned that the silver-haired 29-year-old bachelor has been the target of nasty homosexual lies on the Internet and in his Alabama hometown.

Ah, the nasty Internet rumor... Surely such a nasty rumor would be easy to find, right? Well the Google, she disagrees...

Google doesn't show much in the way of Taylor Hicks is gay talk, aside from recaps of the Enquirer story. TVTalkShows.com, which is doing some serious Google keyword stuffing, has this string: video of taylor hicks on live with regis and kelly - qvc black gay video; that accounts for most of the Google search results for "Taylor Hicks gay."

Crack research by the Wizbang Pop! staff has identified this Yahoo! Answers page as the source of the "Is Taylor Hicks Gay?" controversy. It's worth noting that the question is still undecided, so there's still time to have your say... (The question is now resolved).

Update: Hicks fans need to get a grip, or a life, and go do their astroturfing somewhere else; try The Dallas Morning News, or any of the other outlets that have noticed the Enquirer's stupid story. That's right Hicks fans, no one actually believes Hicks is gay.

He's gray, NOT gay. You know you're popular when the rags start the gay rumors. I don't think he's gay since he's been a "ladies man" since high school but even if he was, who cares...he can still sing.

Jean:

I subscribe to Google email news alerts and a link to this trash was in my email this morning. This is not news. It's trash. I'm letting Google know how I feel about having your trash in with their news alerts. Who cares if he's gay? He has an amazing voice and I will buy his music no matter what. Get a life and stop spreading garbage assumptions.

IF I YOU WANT MY OPINION, TAYLOR IS NOT GAY, HE SEEMS LIKE THE PERFECT MAN. BACK OFF!! TRYING TO DEFAME SOMEONE IS JUST A PURE SIGN OF SUPIDITY AND JEALOUSLY!!!

blackcurry:

What the hell is wrong with people?? WHO CARES if he is or not? It doesn't diminish his talent one tiny bit. People who start this crap need to get a life. He is the American Idol. If you like his music, buy it. If you don't like his music, don't buy it. Just thank God he's not like Michael Jackson!!!

The Enquirer is not journalism. Anyone with even just one functioning brain cell knows this. The "story" doesn't merit attention, and you ought to yank this thread.

Hello Kevin,

I have never been to your blog before, but somebody told me that you blogged about my site. Well, the "Taylor Hicks Is Gay?" or not came from a GOOGLE ADSENSE AD I had on my site ABOUT A POLL and then postings about it started on my site on May 26. This was of course picked up by the Enquirer staff since many check on my site regularly since I break alot of stories about talk show tips I get from producers.

Anyway......the link to the postings started on May 26:

SUBJECT: Google ad at top of page: "Is Taylor Hicks Gay?"

If you check the Technorati Chart for May 26.....you will see that most of that came from blogs talking about my site again.

I also own the domain AmericanIdolRewind.com =)

So all of this "gossip" talk about him being gay or not did originate with this thread way back on May 26.

Susan:

Taylor is very talented. It's ridiculous that people would start a vicious rumor like this. Let him be happy and enjoy his newly acquired fame without scandal. This isn't even worth his time. Don't worry Taylor, we know who you are, and we're behind you all the way.

Judy C:

Taylor Hicks is one of a kind and is already a star...you know you've made it when a rag like the Enquirer prints trash about you. Taylor is sexy without having to flaunt it...that alone proves he's not gay. He was a basketball star in High School and to all accounts quite the ladies man. He was the only reason I tuned in to watch AI this year and knew he would ultimitely triumph. Can't wait to see him on tour. He is huggable and loveable!!!

Rose Scalzo:

I'm an 82-year-old granddma and great-grandma.
Taylor made me feel young again. I really tuned in every week just to watch and hear him. I think he's great and hope that he makes it real bigggg!!!! I especially liked the Elvis Presley tune he sang and performed. He really brought the house down on that one.

cindy:

Taylor Hicks is not Gay...I know some people that know him personally and no he is not gay. He is just a good ol'Alabama country boy that has made stardom and everyone is trying to get a piece of him and making up trash. I have also seen him play at the clubs here in Alabama and he is definitely a ladies man....

Shirl:

I can't believe that anyone would even comment on anything written in the Enquirer. That paper is full of nothing but trash and lies and always has been and people are out here buying it and reading it and putting money in the pockets of the idiots that write the trash. People get a life. If you want to know what is going on in the world read a reliable paper or at least one with a better rep. I don't think for a minute that Taylor is gay and even if he is that is his business not the worlds. If everybody would just mind their own business and leave everyone else's alone, this would be a better world to live in. Best of luck Taylor and I am looking forward to getting your single tomorrow. Soul Patrol!

Taylor Hicks is not GAY. In case you haven't noticed he would be singing about guys and not girls so why don't you people out there who actually think he is go and get a life.
And if Taylor Hicks was gay it would not matter, he has the best voice in the world and that is a fact.

Taylor Hicks is a great guy and I would love to meet him someday! I don't think for a minute that he is gay. I'm 41 years old and came out of some really bad relationships in my life. Seeing him has made me beleive that there are real man out there somewhere and I hope to find one just like him. KUDOS TAYLOR!!! Keep doing what you're doing! You're great and I LOVE YA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MEOW....................
