90210 Actress/Singer Debuts “I Wish I Was Gay.” Because Lesbians Don’t Cheat?

It’s still pretty risky for a mainstream actress or singer to come out as a lesbian. But to court gay audiences (and horny dudes) with a suggestive song? That’s easier than getting your yoo-hoo photographed by a paparazzo.

Just ask Katy Perry, Madonna, Britney Spears, etc.

The latest starlet to issue a queer ballad is 90210 star Jessica Lowndes, who has just released her new single, “I Wish I Was Gay.” In the video, Lowndes sports quasi-drag (y’know, hot girl with man’s dress shirt and fishnets) and subjects her boyfriend to a snoozer burlesque routine before confronting him with evidence of his infidelity. The thing looks like 9 1/2 Weeks and sounds like “I Kissed a Girl.”



In the song, Lowndes sings:

And I don’t get guys

They always treat me the same
Breaking my heart

They always treat me the same
Leaving me alone

Well girls don’t behave that way
No they don’t behave that way

I wish I was gay.

Um, what?

We’re pretty sure lesbians are just as capable of cheating and playing head games—at least to hear our Sapphic sisters tell it.

Maybe Lowndes is getting her information on the LGBT community from 90210: In addition to dealing with an unwanted pregnancy, an AIDS scare and drug dependency, her character, Adrianna, had a lesbian fling with Rumer Willis before before going back to dudes.

So, y’know, she’s, like, an expert.

    Further feeding into the male hetero-fantasty of faux girl/girl action. What a talentless moron.

  • jason

    Jessica Lowndes is being highly insulting to the GLBT community. This is yet another pandering to the sleazy straight guy fantasy for girl-girl action. Fuck off, Jessica.

    Typical female fuck-face who uses fake lesbianism to titillate sleazy straight guys who hate gay guys.

    is 90210 star Jessica Lowndes

    Star? The bar’s been lowered pretty far for stardom, hasn’t it?

  • jason

    That sad thing is that there are some lesbians and bisexual women who think Jessica is great for espousing their cause. LOL. Talk about misguided.

    Any woman who panders to the sleazy straight guy fantasy for girl-girl action is a fake and a fraud who ought to be removed from the GLBT community.

  • Cam

    Wow, this isn’t a dig on lesbians, merely a truth that I think most of the women will agree with.

    Lesbian relationships can be good or bad. It all depends on the people in it. There isn’t a magical spell that being gay casts on a relationship that removes all drama.

    I will say that compared to many of my straight friends gays seem to communicate on average more just because there are certain things we HAVE to talk about that they don’t.

    But the subject of this song just seems ridiculous.

  • Chris

    Ha, I always hear hets attributing their relationship problems to the other’s gender, so I have to wonder why any of them would choose to be straight.

    Of course, it is all BS, but women will surprisingly cling to this sexism.

  • Brian

    How would people react if the song would have been “I wish I weren’t gay” and it were sung by a man? A guy singing about guy troubles. That I could get on board with!

  • jason


    The music industry wouldn’t allow a guy to sing a song about a guy. It’s forbidden. Clear Channel, one of the America’s biggest owners of radio stations, allegedly has an unofficial policy which bans it. However, if you’re a female singing about a female, they allow it.

    Just look at how big I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry was.

  • Opheliac

    She’s hot, and I love her outfit.(though Amanda Palmer did it better) I hate when straight girls do this shit, though. It’s pure fetishization of my sexuality.

    Mark this date Queerty readers – I actually agree with Jason. I doubt it will happen again ;-)
