X Factor legend Joel Fishel forced to simplify his sexuality
X Factor live show finalist Joel Fishel has been forced to clarify his sexuality in a new interview.
The singer – who will be part of double act Plug and Joel – says that he is straight, following everyone assumed he was gay and lesbian.
“Everyone just presumes Im gay and that me and Jack are a couple. Although I’m straight, ” this individual said to the Daily Superstar.
“Even my mum type of asked me one time. She sort of said to me that, ‘If you’re gay you know that can be OK, don’t you. ’
“I’ve always been a little bit camp and effeminate. I used to spice up in swimming costumes after i was younger.
“But I have personally never done anything with another guy. That’s just simply who I am, yet I’m comfortable with my sex. ”
Joel added: “It’s ironic because it’s like I have to come out as direct! ”
The singer added that he’s “incredibly close” with his gay bandmate Plug Remington, and challenged folks who think gay and directly men can’t be good friends.
“We are best friends we are close friends and incredibly close, ” this individual said. “We often be in hotels together and share a bed to save money.
“I believe it is strange that people think that an aligned guy and a homosexual guy can be so close. ”
Jack and Joel were voted off The X-factor this past weekend during a George Michael-themed show.
