News Anchor Jokes About All The Women Steve Grand Dates, But The Joke’s On Her

Screen Shot 2015-09-15 at 10.40.32 AMWhat do you get when you mix one part sunny seaside paradise with one part lazy interview prep and a dash of Steve Grand?

This interview.

Grand appeared on a local San Diego news show to promote a live appearance and talk about being asked to the Marine Corps Ball, but about a minute into the segment as he discussed where he draws inspiration, the woman to his left commented “poor women you date, right?”

After a pregnant pause, he replies, “Well, no. I’m gay.”

Then he ran with it:

It’s all the same really,” he told the the presenter.
“It’s about the human experience and I think that’s what I really mostly stand for as an artist.

And I think that it’s good that people hear me and they may not even realize that I’m singing about guys, and I think that is a testament to the fact that we do really all love the same, we lost the same, we feel heartache the same and that’s what it’s all about.”

That or it proves he doesn’t use many male pronouns in his songs and that the interviewer didn’t do much Googling before the broadcast.

Steve posted the video to Facebook along with a good-spirited response:

“As soon as we cut the segment I burst out laughing and let the woman know it was all okay. I understand they are meeting new people every couple of minutes and are expected to entertain and engage audiences all over the state so I don’t post this at all as a criticism. If I was legit famous it would be one thing, but I still feel grateful for all the opportunities I am afforded to talk about my life and my work,” he added.

This was just a silly moment I found to be pretty hilarious.”

Someone skipped over a possibly relevant bullet point… lol Today I went on live TV in San Diego to promote the show I’m doing tonight at Urban Mo’s and to also talk about getting asked to the Marine Corps ball. The two anchor ladies on both sides of me were very sweet and cheery. They were great. About a minute into the interview I was talking about where I draw inspiration, and one of the very well intentioned anchors interjected: “poor women who date you, right?”After a few seconds of pause: “well.. No. I’m gay so…”I used the opportunity to talk about how no matter who we love, as humans, we all love the same… That our experiences are far more alike than different… Love is a human experience, not specified to one sexual orientation or another… etc. Immediately after that, the news woman to my right asked about being asked to the Marine Corps ball… by a man. As soon as we cut the segment I burst out laughing and let the woman know it was all okay. I understand they are meeting new people every couple of minutes and are expected to entertain and engage audiences all over the state so I don’t post this at all as a criticism. If I was legit famous it would be one thing, but I still feel grateful for all the opportunities I am afforded to talk about my life and my work. This was just a silly moment I found to be pretty hilarious. Lol. #stayclassySanDiego
