Last year, Carrie Fisher participated in The Advocate’s monthly Can I Be Blunt? column where she said “We don’t really care that John Travolta is gay.” She’s back for The Advocate this month to promote her HBO special Wishful Drinking and once again claims that no one cares Johan Travolta is gay.
In the September 2009 issue of Out, you participated in its monthly Can I Be Blunt? column by sharing 10 things that gay men should know about straight women. One of those things was, “We don’t really care that John Travolta is gay.” I know you and Travolta go way back, so let’s get really blunt here: Does his legal team have any business demanding Gawker remove a recent post suggesting that he’s given blow jobs?
Wow! I mean, my feeling about John has always been that we know and we don’t care. Look, I’m sorry that he’s uncomfortable with it, and that’s all I can say. It only draws more attention to it when you make that kind of legal fuss. Just leave it be.
This is shocking. To no one. Hearing that John Travolta is gay is like hearing that Jessica Simpson gained some weight. Even though they don’t want to admit it, we all know it’s true but are tired of pointing it out because all they do is deny it and then seek comfort in the arms of a man. Or an ice cream sandwich.
