INTERVIEW: Stacey Solomon: "More Gay Than Anyone Who Reads The Magazine"

As we sit down to talk with Stacey Solomon, she blurts out, “I’m probably more gay than anyone who reads the magazine…” We can tell this is going to go very well indeed.

TGUK: What’s the best thing about being Stacey Solomon?

SS: The best thing about being me is getting to dress up and go to amazing things and do the job that I’ve always dreamed about doing.

TGUK: Is this something you’re wearing later? (pointing at a dress even a Disney princess might have trouble pulling off.)

SS: Yeah… (Laughs) It’s my Cinderella dress… Most people go for what is going to look cool and fashionable, because they’re gonna get pictured… I went for like, what is the most glittery, sequin-ey most Disney-ey dress I can get.

TGUK: We’ve seen you’ve written a book and a GBF features prominently… What’s the best thing about a gay best friend?

SS: The best thing about having a gay best friend is the brutal honesty that I can always count on. If I do look like absolute poo, then he’ll be like, “Oh my god babes, don’t go on…”

TGUK: Marry snog and avoid… Elton John, Sam Smith and Boy George

SS: I would marry Elton John, he seems like he’s got it altogether. You know, comfortable, I mean I can’t marry him… He’s already married… I’d quite like to snog Sam Smith… If the opportunity ever arose… I wouldn’t say no.

TGUK: So you’re going to be avoiding Boy George?

SS: Oh that means I’m going to have to avoid Boy George! Can’t there be a best friend option?

TGUK: Do you know what Amyl Nitrate is?

SS: I have no idea…

TGUK: It’s poppers…

SS: Oh yeah, you sniff them and like they make your bum bigger? Is that right?

TGUK: It could do… Have you done it?

SS: No… (laughs) I’ve never done anything like that… I’m such a geek.

TGUK: Okay, so today we asked the internet how gay Stacey Solomon is and it answered, “It has come from reliable sources that she has been know to have the odd girl fling!”

SS: Ohhh! Who’s the reliable source?


SS:(Shrieks with laughter)

I’ve never had a girl fling, I’m sorry to say, But I feel like I’m a gay man rather than a gay woman. I feel really camp. I’m like the campest person you’ve ever met trapped inside a woman’s body.

TGUK: Do you know who else said that? Cheryl Baker!

SS: Yeah well… me and her. Same person. (Laughs)

TGUK: So champagne is…

SS: A drink? A drink that tastes like fizzy wee if I’m honest. Yeah it’s not my favourite. For sure.

TGUK: Who is your favourite Kardashian?

SS: Humm, that’s a toughie. I think I like Courtney the best. For some reason… oh no, Chloe.. (manager agrees). Chloe’s got like the most, funnest personality, but I like Courtney’s dress sense. I think she’s got great fashion.

TGUK: So your new single is about being Shy. You don’t come across as Shy…

SS: Really?

TGUK: You did once tell an arena of people you were going to poo yourself…

SS: I’m quite happy and open to share my feelings with people, but when it comes to like intimate situations I get really shy.

TGUK: So what’s the gayest thing about you?

a) Losing the X Factor to Joe McElderry

SS: Is that gay?

For the purposes of this interview yes…

b) The Iceland ads.

c) Judging Top Dog Model

SS: Top dog model. I got to be the campest presenter ever. 

TGUK: Do you have a dog?

SS: I have a Chihuahua Pomeranian. Hashtag Gay.

TGUK: In your house are we most likely to find a shrine to:

Peter Andre

Kylie Minogue

Or Simon Cowell?

SS: Kylie. I’m obsessed with Dannii, I am in love with her.

TGUK: So you’d use her as a conduit to Dannii?

SS: I mean it’s my only connection to Dannii. She’s genuinely the loveliest lady ever in the whole entire world. She still keeps in contact with me six years later. Whenever I do something she texts, “Well done, I love this” I love her.

TGUK: We do love a bit of Dannii if truth be told…

SS: I’ve got all her albums.

TGUK: We’ve had a lot of sex to those albums… (with ourselves…)

SS: Me too. (laughs)

TGUK: Tell us something wildly camp about Simon Cowell

SS: Everything. (Laughs.) Really. He wears like the tightest trousers, he is so well pruned, he really looks after himself everything about him is camp.

TGUK: Did you get to know anything about his dressing room activities?

SS: No and I’m not upset about that. I’d rather not know.

TGUK: What’s the best way to get back at a cheating lover?

1) Bottle of Red, singing All By Myself out the window,

2) Cutting up his silks,

3) Everything he owns in a box to the left?

SS: Ermm. I think I’d be the one singing to the window. I’d probably be making my own rain. Just to add a bit of effect.

TGUK: What do you feel about men in oneies?

SS: I mean each to their own. They’re not attractive on anyone are they? But you know, comfort comes first.

TGUK: What should Cher do next?

SS: Come and see me. I love her. Cher if you’re listening. I’ve been waiting all my life to meet you. If you’re not busy.

TGUK: What would you do if she actually came back to yours?

SS: I don’t know. Probably sing her songs back to her.

TGUK: We’re just imagining Cher’s face.

SS: (laughs) She’d love it!

TGUK: What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever read about yourself?

SS: People always write about how I’m feeling. There’s always like a headline: “Stacey’s tired today…” I’m like ‘no I just didn’t wear make up”, “Stacey’s really upset or heart broken today”. I’m like no! Didn’t anyone wanna ask me.

Sometimes people go on and randomly change my Wikipedia page. They add little things. It gets taken off the next day because it has to be confirmed, but it goes up for 24 hours. The other day someone wrote: “Stacey is currently dating Steve O who she thinks is a great person and she’s really excited to have met such a wonderful man…” I was like who took the time to write this nonsense.

Once someone on there wrote my eldest son’s dad was gay. That was on there for 24 hours.

TGUK: That gives you multiple points if that’s true…

SS: It’s not. Maybe I should just roll with it… He may take me to court over it. But as long as I get points.. (Laughs)

TGUK: Finish this gay mantra….

Ladies with an attitude, fellas that were in the mood…

SS: I didn’t hear a word you just said then!

TGUK: (We repeat) Ladies with an attitude, fellas that were in the mood… finish…

SS:(Looks blankly at us) Sing it to me…

TGUK: We can’t it’s a rap.

SS: (looks a little lost)

TGUK: Ladies with an attitude, fellas that were in the mood, strike a pose there’s…

SS: And?

TGUK: There’s nothing…

SS: To it?

TGUK: Wow. Minus-five.

SS: Sorry I was struggling..

TGUK: Do you know who Madonna is?

SS: Stop it!

TGUK: Will you ever wear a cape?

SS: Not now… She handled that so well.

TGUK: Have you ever fallen on stage?

SS: No. But ratio to the amount of times I’ve been on stage and Madonna’s been on stage…

TGUK: You don’t do too much dancing do you?

SS: Come on now, look at me. I’m not the dancing type am I. I’ve got two left feet and I’m like a stork. I trip over thin air. It’s best for me to sit still. Maybe a little walk to the right.

TGUK: Do you know what Space Docking is?

SS: No… by the smile on your face it does not sound good!

TGUK: We learnt this one from The Overtones! Well it’s when two men “dock” with each other’s penises,with their foreskins…

SS: (Looks astounded at us)

Like a little hoody? Well the Jews wouldn’t like it would they! How they gonna do that? That’s not for everyone. That’s why I don’t know!

Stacey’s album is out now

Big Brother JOEL: There Will Be A Hate Campaign Against Me

Big Brother's Joel Williams is worried about the fall out from Aaron's unexpected removal from the compound in yesterday's show.

Channel 5

Openly gay Big Brother contestant Aaron. 24, was removed from Big Brother for what producers called "inappropriate behaviour", when he paraded around the bedroom and chased Joel Williams, 19, naked.

In tonight's show Sarah has it in for Joel. During a blazing row, Sarah has suggested that Joel led Aaron on. In tonight's episode an argument breaks out where Sarah tells Joel that his behaviour in the wake of Aaron’s departure has been inappropriate.

Joel asks what Sarah’s reaction would have been if she had been in that situation. Sarah says,

“No one in this house would do that to me because I would have made it extremely, unequivocally clear that that was not on.”

Joel responds, “What are you trying to suggest?”

Nick tries to defend Joel but Sarah tells him not to get involved.

Sarah says, “I have no issue with the fact they removed Aaron. My issue is you then parade around in women’s clothing. You encourage it.”

Joel responds: “I think that’s bang out of order for you to suggest that justifies his actions.”

“I have no issue with the fact they removed Aaron. My issue is you then parade around in women’s clothing. You encourage it.”

Joel replied: “I think that’s bang out of order for you to suggest that justifies his actions.”

Later in the bath Nick and Joel are talking, Joel is worried about how he will be percieved out of the house saying: “There will be a hate campaign against me.”

Armistead Maupin Supports The Fire-Island Boycott

Even though multi-millionaire NY gay hoteliers Ian Reisner and Mati Weiderpass have now hired Omar Sharif Jnr as their PR Spokesman to try and stop the stem of anger and outrage over their support of anti-gay Senator Ted Cruz, the campaign keeps mounting to boycott all their businesses.

The latest one to pitch in with his comments is venerable author and activist Armistead Maupin who reacted yesterday with this tweet.

"I'm the only gay man I know who has never been to Fire Island. I have not made a point of staying away -- its charms are legendary, of course -- but the occasion has simply never presented itself. Now, it's quite likely that I will remain forever virginal in that regard. Or at least until these guys are no longer collecting money at the dock. When I coined the term 'A-gay' forty years ago, these were just the sort of creeps I had in mind. It was never intended as something to aspire to."

Reisner and Weiderpass have being compounded their problems after the initial outcry to them hosting the Right Wing Presidential Candidate by giving a whole string of interviews in the media such as NY Magazine intended as a form of apology but completely backfiring when Reisner criticised the gay community which he claimed considered it ‘entitled’ as well the fact they were ‘cheap’.


Housemate Marc: Women’s Orgasms Caused Tsunami

Marc O' Neil, who is due be one of the new housemates on Big Brother this evening once starred in a reality series on Irish Television called Tallafornia.


In this clip Marc O'Neil, scientist by day and UK pleasure boy by night, claims he caused the Tsunami when every women in the world orgasmed over him at the same time.

In the brief video clip Marc is explaining how he was born, apparently his father was a dragon and his mother was a unicorn. It's a bit of a story, watch it here:

WORLD FIRST: Gay Fighter Game Launched

In time for this year’s pride season the world’s first gay fighting game, GAY FIGHTER SUPREME, with ten LGBT fighters – including drag queen Carrie Cupcake, GoGo Gary, lesbian Sappho Ethridge and twink Timmy Spears – all competing to win the title of Gay Fight champion.

GAY FIGHTER SUPREME is available for purchase now on iTunes, Windows and Google Play.

“The idea for GAY FIGHTER SUPREME arose from banter between friends discussing our mutual love for 90’s fighting games,” says Michael Patrick, the game’s founder and creator.

“The characters are all influenced by dated jokes, pop culture icons, and camp. We wanted it to be like a pride parade gone rogue.”

"The game is intended to be irreverent, satirical, fun spirited and ironic."

Melchor Cardenas, the games co-creator added, “Anyone who mistakenly views the game as offensive or feels it perpetuates gay stereotypes is missing the point.

“It’s pure satire. We don’t mean to offend anyone. If it does offend someone, we hope it inspires them to create a fun queer themed game of their own.”

There are twelve levels in all. The final three characters that must be defeated to win the game are The League of Oppressive Self-Righteous Zealots (LOSRZ for short). They are the real enemies, a group whose aim is to wipe out the LGBT community by brainwashing its members and transforming them into gay hating cyborgs.

To preserve the tongue in cheek nature of the game, no blood or gore is ever seen in GAY FIGHTER SUPREME, only rainbows and unicorns.

“The message I would take from the game is that the LGBT family shouldn’t fight among each other,” concludes Patrick. “There are larger enemies afoot!”
