The past year has certainly been an eventful one for out entertainer Cheyenne Jackson. He appeared in HBO’s hit Liberace bio, filmed a couple of new gay-themed movies, released an album, performed concerts in major cities and, oh yeah…split from his handsome husband, had a sex tape leak, got new tattoos, shaved his head and took up with a new boyfriend to whom he got engaged before the ink had dried on the divorce docs. This man does not like to stay idle for long.
Now a Queerty reader has informed us about a photo Jackson had sent out in which he’s wearing a leather harness and not much else. (We’ve long suspected he was into kink.) Here’s the note:
A friend who’s a chorus boy in a Broadway show sent me this. He was going through his old phone and found this pic Cheyenne Jackson sent him a while ago.
If anyone has more info about the pic, let us know. To see the full NSFW pic, go here.
Nothing he’s done seems that crazy. Sort of feels like you just want to pick on him. Anyway, he’s hot, the pic was ok. He has a perky ass but kind of strangely shaped and a bit small.
I think it’s easier to dismiss or label his actions as “crazy” than understand them. I may be ignorant of the details of his story, or the speculative details but lets go down the list:
Left his partner of 13 years: Sad, but relationships end.
Got tattoos: everyone gets tattoos, whether you like or don’t like them, why judge it as crazy?
Engaged after 6 months of dating: after 13 years he could be rebounding pretty hard with this new guy. Or he left his former partner for this new guy. Or despite how much we want to be sceptical, he did find someone he fell in love with.
Joining the cult: I have to plead ignorance on that. I don’t know much about that story/rumor. All i have to say is, one person’s cult is another person’s religion.
The sex tape: not the first, not the last.
In all, i think people are making a bid deal about his behavior because it’s not the Jackson we grew to admire. He’s changing and changing fast, probably because of his break up. That’s his business.
