As more and more celebs come out of the closet or reveal sex tapes, it becomes less and less shocking as to who is going to make these claims. We can now add pop rock singer/pianist Vanessa Carlton to the list. The singer best known for “A Thousand Miles” and “Ordinary Day” came out as bisexual during a performance on stage to 18,000 people at Nashville Pride over the weekend. Before launching into her song “Who’s to Say,” Carlton announced, “I’ve never said this before but, while we’re here and living out loud as we should every single day, I, myself, am a proud bisexual woman.”
The singer joins a select group of out bisexual celebrities like True Blood star Anna Paquin, who came out in April, in a public service announcement promoting equality and awareness of the LGBT community. GLAAD applauds Carlton and wishes her the best as she continues to live her life openly and proudly.
A list compiled over the net reveals that quite a few celebs have let it be known that they are bisexual. The list includes, but is not limited to: Drew Barrymore, Christina Aguilera and Angelina Jolie. Clearly, this is not a big deal to most. However, as we live in these days and times where bigotry and homophobia still exist, it must be commended that someone comes out and lets the world know what they are truly about. Being judged is not going to stop them. For that I say, “I support you Vanessa Carlton.” Now, as my friend T-Pain says “I wanna see you kiss your friend…kiss her like you mean it!”prma
