I usually leave American Idol posts to my other half, but I can't stay silent tonight. The only remaining male contestant, Blake Lewis, sang You Should Be Dancing. As I listened, I heard him sing, "my baby takes me higher, my baby keeps me warm."
I beg your pardon? Those aren't the lyrics. I know that song. The lyrics are, "my woman takes me higher, my woman keeps me warm."
Did someone just subtly out himself on national television? If a woman sang it and changed the lyrics, that might make some sense (in a straight view of the world), but I can think of only one explanation for a guy changing "woman" to "baby," especially since some people were already speculating about his sexuality.
Now the question is whether his "best friend" Chris Richardson is more than a friend. Watching them hug as Chris was voted off last week, I thought I saw them get too close for friends, but then I shrugged that off. I always want hot boys to kiss, so maybe it was just my imagination. Now I'm thinking they may really be a couple. If so, how about a sex video, boys? Cute couple! ;)
Wouldn't it be great if they came out as a couple and started recording albums together? I'd buy their albums. In fact, I'd buy multiple copies, just to support the high-profile gay boys! (I'm getting ahead of myself, right?) :)
Anyhow, don't be subtle, Blake! When they vote you off (because you do know you're not going to win, right?), come out on national television! Say it! (And if Chris is ready to declare his love at the same time, that would be a home run!)
The happy couple??
Update: Well, he's not going to win (Melinda's clearly the best of the bunch--not that that always matters on this show), but Blake's going to be around for at least one more week. Interesting how this is playing out. I guess LaKisha's "I just don't feel like trying so hard anymore" attitude came across to too many people. Anyhow, Blake, we can wait for your coming out. ;)
