German Teeny-Bopper Discredits Constructionism

kaulitz_billH.jpg
If you guys are looking proof that queers are born, not made, dive into that there jump to see Bill Kaulitz of German boy band Tokio Hotel singing “It’s Raining Men” on a turn of the century episode of German Star Search.

It’s pretty fucking gay.

(Also, is it us or does Kaulitz look like some lesbian from an apocalyptic future?)

    Oh my god, you made my day. I’ve been kind of fascinated with the incredibly fey Bill K. since I saw him on German MTV some time last year. It took me a while to figure out that he wasn’t a girl named Bill… fantastiche indeed. I had no idea he’d been on German Star Search. This particular performance wasn’t actually terribly good in terms of the singing, but I’m still floored, boggled, stupefied, delighted…

    One quibble: I don’t know if “boy band” is the right term to describe Tokio Hotel. Doesn’t that usually imply a pre-fab kind of origin? These kids seem to have formed the band themselves, they actually play their instruments and they’re way more punky than any boy band I can think of. Anyway, thanks for keeping us up on the really important stuff.

    So, is the audience clapping because they can’t understand the lyrics? Also, I thought Mother Nature was a “single woman”, not a “silly woman.”

    WHO CARES? Bill is hot and his band is great and I LOVE TOKIO HOTEL. A lot.

  • Jamie

    ok, This is a completely false article. It has never been announced that Bill Kaulitz is gay. Never ever has it said that anywhere. Just because he isn’t seen with women unlike his twin brother and he has an awesome sense of style is that supposed to make him gay? Why can’t he just be a sensitive boy who doesn’t want to feel like his twin or even resents his twin for being with too many women. Maybe he respects women more than that. And maybe he is gay. I would prefer him to be straight cause he’s hot. But, I fully respect his choice even if it doesn’t completely agree with my preferences.

    Geez, the boy was 13, and hadn’t even reached puberty yet… Gay or not, there was something very disturbing about a child (boy OR girl) singing “It’s Raining Men”, let alone identifying with Mother Nature about being a single woman… Yeah I know the kid probably didn’t know what he was singing about; but someone should have let him know.

  • Maris

    okay, the kid was 13. he lived in germany. he spoke german. do you honestly think he had any clue as to what he was singing? he didnt know english at that time. he was just singing a song and probably thought since it was in a diff language, it would boost his probability to win. if hes gay and this tape proves it, where has credibility gone..

  • Helen

    The disussion about whether he`s gay or not is very good for the fame of the band. Bill and Tokio Hotel are famous not because of their music but because of their style and Bill`s voice. I think his clothes are supposed to mark his outstanding talent to inscene himself – nothing else. In Germany people laugh at little girls who admire Tokio Hotel saying that Bill was gay and all the girls are in love with him in vain. In my opinion, it`s worse for the band if Bill wasn`t really gay. The discussion around them would`nt be interesting anymore. It`s a marketing strategy.

    to all former posters:
    1:
    with 13 in germany you know english because he learned it for years at school. (it is a main subject as German).
    2:
    i reached puberty with 12 and know i was gay.
    3:
    it is sadly the public thought over so private things.
    led him alone decide if or if not be gay, and how ever he decide it is always ok.

    He doesn’t say “silly woman”, but he said “Single” as a German says it. It’s an accent issue, not a language issue. He was 13. I know I couldn’t speak German back then. I think his English was quite good for that.

    And yes, Tokio Hotel does rock. :)

  • Jonathan

    YOU GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF HATERS. YOU’RE JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT IN HIS PLACE – RICH AND FAMOUS AND A DAMN GOOD SENSE OF VIRTUE, AND ARE A BUNCH OF LOSERS SITTING AT YOUR COMPUTERS GOSSIPING STUPID SHIT.

  • Maria

    personally i think it was a fuckin hott performance =]

  • izze

    i don’t care if he’s gay or effeminate. He’s a 13 year old pre-pubescent singer in that video, and it’s just plain sweet. (hugs)

  • Megan

  • Amechi

    I’m really confused. Bill looks like girl but Bill is hot? Are these women heterosexual? So if I act like a girl to the point where my sexuality is extremely questionable i can be hot too? AWSOME, I’m growing my hair out and getting some eye shadow!

  • Trina

    Megan- They’re working on english, they have their English album coming out in may, its the same songs as “Zimmer 483” album along with “Throught the monsoon”, “Scream”, and “rescue me”. they dont know very much but georg and gustav are excellent in english =]

    I love bill, hes not gay. if he says hes not, thats enough for me.
    anyone who tries to say he is, i’ll never take you seriously. he’s never come out and said he’s gay, so I’ll take HIS word for it. not yours.

  • Christine

    amen, Trina, amen ;)
