    says Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine:

    I agree with his comment.
    That's one of the reasons I stopped watching Idol years ago.

    He looks great with his shirt off too, doesn't he?

    American Idol is gay as in it's wrong, weird, stupid, flamboyant, tawdry, and overall annoying. But it's not gay as in homosexual.

    You know what? If they replaced all the people signing with hot men fucking on stage, Im pretty sure American Idol would be less gay.

    Uh, that's quite a leap from what he actually said... which is that American Idol does not publicize when contestants are gay. Yeh, it's wrong. And yeh, it's nauseating when they won't shut up about a straight contestant's dead wife, but refuse to mention a gay contestant's significant other. Still, I wouldn't call that "anti-gay" in the same respect that Michelle Bachman is anti-gay.

    I found it far more interesting what he said about Perez Hilton: “Perez [Hilton] asked me to do it (the It Gets Better campaign). I found it strange that one of the biggest bullies on Earth is asking me. I was really not a fan of his. I thought he was part of the problem.”

    American Idol is perhaps overly cautious and vanilla; the opposite of risky and edgy. I wouldn't call it necessarily anti-gay. It has had many many many gay contestants and many of the people who work behind-the-scenes for the show are gay.

    No one is looking for American Idol to be on the cutting edge of society, though. But, I mean, come on, who didn't know Clay Aiken or Adam Lambert took it up the butt?

    American Idol is anti- anything that isn't a cute white guy in his late teens/early 20's who plays the guitar.

    American Idol, on Fox, has the same problems that So You Think You Can Dance does, in that the producers are afraid of alienating some imaginary demographic by embracing teh gays. Which is funny, because SYTYCD probably has more gay contestants on it than any other reality show out there (and flamboyant ones as well).

    But you see a very heterosexualcentric view on SYTYCD. The pairings are usually male-female, and when there are same sex pairings, they are never love stories (well, explicitly). Nigel Lythgoe, executive producer of SYTYCD (and former producer of Idol) makes it a point that he doesn't like men who dance femininely, praises the females for being pretty and sexy, and tries to keep the show as gender conforming as possible.

    I haven't watched Idol in a very long time, but I would guess the same sort of culture applies. It's not so much that they're blatantly campaigning against gay individuals, but they like to keep things "discreet", much the same that family likes to do about issues when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner.

    How can American Idol be anti-gay when Ryan Seacrest is the host?

    If people are looking to American Idol to be a leader in social change, then we've got a lot of problems.

    Adam Levine's point is that Idol (being a Fox/Murdoch production, after all), completely disguises & suppresses any acknowledgment that any contestant is gay, lest that generate a positive gay view. And that is true, after all.

    Despite the comments of a certain non-gay in this thread, who actually thinks no one knows what he's up to, with his non-stop stream of anti-gay remarks. icon_razz.gif

    Fixed it for ya.

    I don't think that was Levine's point. It was your point, a valid and nuanced one at that.

    Levine judging a show as outdated and cornball as Idol to be anti-gay is like judging Lawrence Welk to be anti-asian. I mean, come on. Idol was dreamed up in 1998-1999 and it's stuck there, I think by design. The *winking* at the audience is part of the schtick. They milked it for all it was worth during Lambert's Big NOT-Gay Run *wink wink*.
