That Flamey Kid From American Idol Insists He Loves the Ladies


So that American Idol loser with the terrible hair? He’s extending his stay in pop culture thanks to I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, which means we must continue caring what comes out of his mouth! Like when Sanjaya Malakar insists, laughably, that he’s not a homosexual. Alas, Adam Lambert didn’t bring all the boys to the yard.

Fellow contestants on I’m A Celebrity — which airs four nights a week on NBC, and includes live segments — began quizzing Sanjaya on whether he likes dem boys or dem girls. Among them: Holly Montag, barely famous for being the sister of reality tart Heidi Montag.

“I just feel like [fellow Celebrity contestant Janice Dickinson] wants you to be gay or something,” Holly told Sanjaya. He responded: “She really does. Like, yeah, a lot of people want me to be their gay best friend and I make a really good gay best friend, but I, don’t like guys, so it confuses people. … I connect with gay people really well because we understand each other I’m like, ‘Hey!’ and they’re like, ‘Oh, hey!’ and I’m like, ‘No, but I’ll hang out with you.’ … A lot of my friends refer to me as their ‘straight gay best friend’ because we’ll go do things that stereotypically you would do with a gay guy.”

All of which, perplexingly, led to this.
