American Idol

Is Paul Jolley Gay?

One of the questions that we always get on the blog since American Idol 12 aired his audition is: “Is Paul Jolley gay?”

Fans at Vote for the Worst have been uncovered some evidence that the handsome hunk is indeed gay and is dating another cutie named Eric Brock Hartline. (Here’s Brock’s Pinterest).

The sad thing is if Paul Jolley is indeed gay, he won’t come out or even discuss it while he’s on American Idol. Two of the most popular contestants on the show: Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert avoided the topic of their sexuality, with Adam even stating later that it didn’t matter. (Ironically, it did matter, since he “came out” on the cover of Rolling Stone a few months to much fanfare after his season ended).

The good news though is that not coming out seems to create a fan following among women that could possibly take Paul into the finals. I mean seriously, Paul looks like Evan Lysacek. Gay rumors have plagued Evan for years and yet this has only made his female fanbase stronger than ever. I see the same thing happening to Paul (as it did with Clay and Adam).

who cares who he does or doesn't sleep with / fancy... he's a mediocre singer at best, with no star quality... IMHO... the show is about discovering the next singing superstar... its not Paul.. whatever his sexual preferences are

Rickey, does it look like I give a crap about his orientation? Geez!!!! This is always the first thing people want to know about an individual's orientation and that is NONE of my business. The media always question an individual's orientation so they can have something to gossip about or to report or spread rumors about. All that matters is his vocal ability and that's all. I'm so sick and tired of this speculation.

WTF!!! Why does it matter? The only question I have is: Is he talented and charismatic enough to be the next American Idol. 

Case closed!

Yes, he's obviously gay, but it seems like he only recently came out and started this relationship, so it might be pretty new to him. It's got to be a little overwhelming to have all these people talking about your sexuality if you only recently came to terms with it yourself. Like him and his big voice a lot! He and the boyfriend are cute.

LOL at the 25% of people on the poll that voted "No"...clearly they need to be educated a bit.

@powerpunkprep My second cousin begs to differ. He saw him in a gay bar and  saw him hooking up.
