WATCH: The Osmonds Hired Chuck Norris To “De-Feminize” Their Dancing


It’s funny how people can have different perspectives on things. To hear Donny Osmond tell it, being in a band with his brothers in the 1970s was like one big sleepover. But in this clip, eldest brother Alan makes it sound like the group was a dangerous covert military cadre—and he was Steven Seagal.

Queerty reader Dave sent us this clip, in which Alan talks about how, at one point, he felt the boys’ dance moves were a little too…feminine, so he hired the only man who could help butch ’em up: Chuck Norris. Seriously, was this guy in a boy band or the A-Team?

Alan, a devout Mormon, has retired from singing and dancing and these days spends his time on his website, TheFamily.com, which—among other tenets—preaches that being gay is a sin and “homosexuality is not innate and unchangeable.”

We liked it better when he was kung-fu fighting.
